Теперь любой телефон можно превратить в читалку для книг. Конечно экран маловат для чтения, но не всегда же таскать с собой читалку.

Конвертер организован как сервис:


Загружаем fb2, получаем JAR. Небольшая програмка которая содержит в себе книжку.

Если качать с либрусека, там сразу доступна ссылка для скачивания на мобильный.

Моя старенькая Nokia 3110 вполне теперь стала читалкой 🙂

Существует и другой метод конвертирования книг fb2 для чтения

By this article I start publishing all interesting stuff I’ve made. Kind of portfolio.

Visual Petri Net Plus (VPNP)  was thesis of my diploma work at Technical University of Moldova(2000-2002). It is Petri Net designer, simulator and calculator. It has nice graphical engine that help to draw Petri net quite easy.

Theory of Petri Nets is intresting, you can find a lot of information on the net.

Recently, everybody heard the latest news from Google about new protocol which can speedup and make more comfortable internet surfing.

If not, better to read official white paper.  It is called “SPDY”, another endless attempt to fix this world.

But will Google make something that won’t have big chances to succeed ? I did not think so.

This protocol affect server side(web server) and client side(browser). To deploy it well both parts need to be changed. That is almost impossible in Internet reality. Many improvements to Internet were developed recently, including ones to improve email, fighting spam, etc… Where are they ? Penetration is not more than 5-10%.

Think again about Google.

They have their own browser, which is not so poplar as other leaders, but it is well designed, stable, fast and gained his part or market. For sure Google will add support of this protocol for their Google Chrome browser. It is matter of several months.

Do not forget, Google is biggest content/service provider on the net, that means – all web servers are under their control. Sure they will add support of SPDY to web server part.

Very soon, users who use Google Chrome and Google Mail|Docs|Wave services will experience much better performance of these apps. Even now I prefer Chrome for Gmail and Docs. This will lead to increased popularity of Chrome.

Will Mozilla stay aside ? I don’t think so. Will Apache stay aside ? I don’t think so.

Google+Mozilla+Apache and revolution is almost over.


If you are Mozilla Firefox user you probably know what are addons and use some of them to make surf  life more comfortable.

This article is about GreaseMonkey addon. I’d like to introduce  it mostly for developers and want to share my knowledge cause I was surprised by its power, simplicity and functionality.

I tried to gather all useful technics, code snippets and documentation in one place to make it a good start page.
