Some websites publish entire articles in their RSS feeds. That makes it difficult to read them in the Web Feeds screen. The browser screen is better option for it has scroll buttons. Hence, the Visit button function has been updated. If you long press it, the internal HTML page will be loaded in the browser screen.

When using the soft keyboard of the edit box of the Search screen, the Search button was choosing the last enabled search engine. Now, it will choose the first engine.

Another new feature is a menu option to save links for offline reading in the RSS feed reader.

Cartoon avatars of AJ Styles, Luke Harper & Brock Lesnar created in Inkscape

I have started drawing people (on paper) as they are playing on TV. If they look good, I draw them in Inkscape. This way the amount of time on the computer becomes less.

In this effort, AJ styles came out best. Shades in Brock Lesnar’s face blended indistinguishably when it was downsized.

Surprisingly, there are very few good images of WWE stars on the Net, particularly from the past. All were recent pictures.

Subhash Browser & Feed Reader v2017.07.02 goes full screen

Subhash Browser could go fullscreen earlier too but only without the title bar. Not so anymore. All the screens can go fullscreen now.

The custom text boxes had an inactive ”Done” button when the onscreen keyboard was displayed. This has been fixed.

When the title bar was hidden, there was no way to access the hamburger menu. Now, the About toolbar button will be replaced with a Menu button for the same.

Another feature update was in the Downloads screen. Different colors for different stages in the download wasn’t enough. Now, it tells explicitly if the download had oinked.

Javadhu powder – a healthy non-toxic non-alcoholic perfume

image

Muslims use attar because it is not based on alcohol. Similarly, Javadhu powder is a traditional cosmetic used in South India for millennia. Today, it is made by village self-help groups and others on a cottage industry scale.

Last year, my father gave me a bottle. I had read about it in literature but never used it before. The bottle ran out recently and I got a new one from a shop selling pooja articles. It costs less than 20 ruppees.

In the previous bottle, the powder had become dry. It still was very fragrant. The powder is slightly moist and the bottle needs to be tightly capped. Instructions in the bottle suggest taking a pinch in the palm and adding a drop of water before applying to the body. I simply rub the powder in the chest hair and arm pits. The fragrance does not go away even after a day!

Javadhu is an economical and safer alternative to sprays and deodorants. Currently, this is the only cosmetic I use apart from coconut oil & shikakai (soap nut powder).
