minichat will be a waste of bandwidth for the user's phone. The only correct solution I can see is the integration of an API which will deserve mchat messages under a certain format (JSON? or XML?).

Hola Arabic_world!

Say, your site is in Spanish! Do they speak Spanish in Saudi Arabia? I myself speak Spanish as mother language, but I never thought you!!!

I will try your applications and post my opinion in your site...

Regards!
Porteus is proud of the FASTEST KDE ever made.....(take akonadi, nepomuk and soprano out and you will have a decent OS).

There is very useful android app called "drivedroid". It allows you to expose any .img or .iso via usb cable connected from PC to phone. I use it to store img file of porteus puppy ubuntu and android-x86 on my phone, the boot my PC from any of them. It is easier than making multiboot usb and juggling many partitions and configuring grub. The downside is that your phone is tied to PC, but with copy2ram you can unplug the phone once boot is completed.
