CB Bank Mobile Banking Review

CB bank is the first bank in Myanmar starting mobile banking amidst unconfirmed cyber law, inferior infrastructure and low mobile usage. It was advertised in national TV channels using country top actors and I was very eager to try it out.

Although I tend to do this review after I have the application installed on my iPhone 5, I only scratched the surface as the app needs authorization again after upgrade to iOS 7.

Firefox, Flashgot and JDownloader

Firefox is one of the best modern browsers.

JDownloader is one of the best free download managers.

Flashgot is the addon for firefox that can integrate various download manager like JDownloader with Firefox.

Button does not work

But JDownloader’s button to do so does not work (in my case) with later Firefoxes.

I carried out the following procedure to integrate Flashgot with JDownloader.

Install Pentaho 4.5 CE as service on Windows 7 x64

Pentaho is an open source Business Intelligence suite. I installed the server according to these very informative posts and had been working with the server with bundled script to start and stop.

I tried to install service and the service simply cannot run though successfully installed. (Bundled Pentaho 4.5 only includes Tomcat 6 32-bit. It can be started with bundled start-pentaho.bat and it can be installed as service using bundled service.bat)

After so many searches, trials and errors, I have successfully installed the Pentaho 4.5 as service on my Windows 7 64 bit. The following content describes how did I do it.

Content

  • Some information
  • Install JDK and configure
  • Replace tomcat 6
  • Install and configure service

Using many version of firefox

Mozilla team is actively releasing the Firefox recently. It is a good thing and welcomed by many Firefox lovers. Just a thing, not every addon is compatible with the newly released Firefox.

There is a way to run two or more firefoxes (in PC), you need to

  • install the firefoxes to different folder
  • create separate profile for each firefox
  • change shortcuts to run with separate profile
