Finally, Skype on my iPhone!

I’ve been waiting for an app that would allow me to make Skype phone calls from my iPhone.! And it is here… woo hoo!

It is called “Fring” (and it is now an accepted terminology to use the word “fringing”!).

It not only allows you to make Skype calls and do Skype chats, but also integrates with MSN Messenger, Google Talk, Twitter and a whole lot of other chatting services.

Check out the Fring site for more.

Installing it was a breeze. And the interface is really nice and simple. It uses WiFi to make Skype calls. So if your phone is connected to WiFi, you can make Skype calls.

Fring is also available for other handsets like Wi-Fi Symbian 8 or 9, Windows Mobile 5 or 6 and UIQ.

Online tool for creating Apache .htaccess files

Creating/modifiy the Apache webserver .htaccess files by hand can be a bit of a pain at times.

Today I came across a website that lets one generate an .htaccess file using a nice, Ajax-y web interface.

For example, to setup authentication, one has to create a user. You can do that by simply filling out a simple form like:

Create htaccess file

And this gives you contents that you need to copy across into your .htaccess file.

htaccess file content

Very neat and very useful.
