Launch of Local LTD website

June 16, 2009

Hey all, just put up my first app for review in the iTunes store. It’s not there yet, but I will make a new post once it’s approved. This program is for iPhone 3.0 with In-App E-Mail, and an In-App map. Website for the program is located at

http://www.melman101.com/Local_LTD

Here is the description once approved in the App Store:
Since the dawn of time, there has always been a question in the minds of humans. This question is quite possibly the most epic question pondered throughout the day. That question is “What’s for Lunch?” (or Dinner 🙂 ). Local Lunch Time Decider or LTD for short helps you answer that question in today’s wonderful world of technology. Everytime you launch the app, it already has a random choice chosen for you. Then you can have it choose again, find new locations around you, map those locations, call them, e-mail your friends to meet you there, and even add in your own secret locations!

Save these locations in here so you don’t clutter up your address book! Driving down the highway with a friend? Have your friend check out the local eats, and save them in your list! Then you can check them out whenever you get a free chance

Have fun and I hope you do enjoy!

Check it out when you get a chance!


Hori Real Arcade Pro 3 for PS3

February 22, 2009

Well, I broke down and bought the Hori Real Arcade Pro 3 for the PS3 for use with Street Fighter IV. I got to say, this stick is wonderful. It has a Sanwa JLF-TP8Y-SK stick and Hori buttons from what I’m told are quite similar to the Sanwa OBSF30/24 buttons. However, if you do want to switch them out for the Sanwa button, apparently it has Quick Disconnects (QD) which make replacing the buttons a breeze. The difference between the OBSF30 and the OBSF24 are the size of the buttons. 30mm and 24mm respectively. Also, if you did want to replace the stick for a stiffer stick, you could get the Seimitsu LS-32-01. I hear that fits well. However, most people agree that the Sanwa JLF stick is not worth changing as it is a quality part. Most people also change the artwork, or even make it compatible with both the 360 and PS3/PC. I found a bunch of info here:

Also, to buy a bunch of those parts, go to

I tell you, I love the stick. it feels great. I play with it on my lap and it feels like I’m playing Street Fighter in the arcade again. Amazing!


An interview with an adware developer

January 23, 2009

In the field of computers many people have dealt with adware, either fixing infected PCs or being infected the ebil apps.  So here we have an interview with an author who has claimed to have his adware installed in 4 million PCs.

He seems quite honest and teaches some interesting strategies used by adware developers.


faxzero.com – Free Faxing over the Internet!

January 1, 2009

Send free faxes threw the Internet! If you go to http://www.faxzero.com, they allow you to fax 3 pages with an ad on the cover sheet. Big whoop! It allows you to fax for free twice a day! Seems pretty straight forward. No BS just a few ads. I just faxed my parents Happy New Year! 🙂

I’ll update this post when my parents finally return home and see the fax 🙂

Edit: Parents received fax and did not even mention the ad on it :-)!
