Mosha Village

Mosha Village - Near Ab-Ali ski resort - 60KM North East of Tehran. Mosha is a beautiful touristic area and there are lots of villas out there. The photo was taken in spring, in a beautiful afternoon. I like the colorful roofs that made a nice color contrast with blue and green.

5 Things You'll Love About Firefox 3

Mozilla Fire fox 3

 

Firefox 3 Beta 2 shows some nifty new tools we can expect in Mozilla's next browser.

New versions of favorite applications are always a little tricky; you want to keep up with the times without fixing what ain't broke. With that in mind, I took a look at the newly released Firefox 3 Beta 2 to see what we can look forward to when the final version ships in 2008.

 

 

Although the basic look of the browser hasn't changed, there are actually quite a few new features coming. (For a complete list, you can check out Mozilla's release notes.)

[Improved in Beta 2!] Firefox 3 Beta 2 includes approximately 900 improvements over the previous beta, including fixes for stability, performance, memory usage, platform enhancements and user interface improvements. Many of these improvements were based on community feedback from the previous beta.

Some of the new features in Firefox 3 are not immediately obvious -- at least, not to the casual user. Among other things, Mozilla is incorporating new graphics- and text-rendering architectures in its browser layout engine (Gecko 1.9) to offer rendering improvements in CSS and SVG; adding a number of security features, including malware protection and version checks of its add-ons; and off-line support for suitably coded Web applications.

My new iPod - iPod Touch

Submitted by nima on Sun, 01/06/2008 - 08:48

iPod TouchI bought my Classic iPod 5 years ago! It was the very first generation of iPods! The best mp3 player ever!
Once I actually started to play with it, I fell in love. I think the whole "iPod" part of the name threw me - it's not an iPod (at least not for me), it's the PDA I've been looking for.

First off, I still haven't actually plugged the headphones into it - they're still sealed up in their packaging. My classic iPod is going to be my music player of choice for at least a little while longer. But so far I love everything else this baby can do!

I had no problems syncing with Outlook, so it gave me the perfect opportunity to get my contacts all organized so I could take them with me when I handed back my computer. I'd been wanted to get something that I could use to keep track of friends' and associates' addresses, details, etc, and this is perfect. As I just started to really use Outlook's calendar, having a portable option is brilliant. I can't add new appointments, but apparently the latest firmware update gives me that functionality.

Free Photoshop Actions

Free Photoshop Actions
Adobe Photoshop includes the ability to record commands and tool operations in real-time and to save them in a script known as an 'action'. When played back an action will execute all the recorded steps and apply changes to an image. An action can also be used in conjunction with Photoshop's automation tools to form the basis of a batch process that will apply the same settings to a 'batch' of many images.

Most designers and photographers will agree that Photoshop actions are extremely useful for creating images and photograph effects quickly and efficiently. Listed below are those I've had in my favorites and thought would be great to share. Click titles to download and then load each one in photoshop actions to test.  

Temptations of Sun

Near Sobatan village in Talesh (north western part of Iran). After about 8 hours walking through mountains from Neor Lake, finally we arrived Sobatan Village. The atmosphere was just great, calm and peaceful with lots of vivid colors around. The village is accessible only in summers, the only road to the village is terrible and when it rains it is like hell! There is no permanent inhabitants, rurals use this village for summer resident. They leave it at the end of summer and move to the Caspian Sea shore.
