New project: srt2ass3D

posted Apr 20, 2012, 4:21 AM by Carlos Silva

This is a simple program to convert a normal .srt subtitle file that can't be played with a SBS/TB 3D movie, to a .ass file that can be played with a 3D movie.

Gmail like Button/ComboBox in Javascript/Html/Css

posted Mar 19, 2012, 8:57 AM by Carlos Silva   [ updated Mar 19, 2012, 9:41 AM ]

This is my first HTML/CSS/Javascript project. I made it to be used on another project I have on my job, and I would need this functionality so, I decided to give it a try and make it myself.

The main idea was: it should be possible the a simple button could be transformed into a combobox the vice-versa, when needed. And should be customizable of course.
So, after many hours figuring out how Html, JavaScript and CSS worked this is what I came up with:

The source is available at and at my Source Code site. If you have suggestions/optimizations, feel free to contact me.

Source Code moved to BitBucket

posted Feb 29, 2012, 7:44 AM by Carlos Silva

Having been on a quest to find a good place online to hold the code of all my projects. The thing is that I have some private projects, some public projects without source code available and open source projects, so I wanted to be able to store public and private repos of my code. I mainly use git for my repositories so, it had to support it too.

Found BitBucket that has support for unlimited private and public repos so this was a good choice and decided to investigate it. Upon opening an account an trying to configure a new repo, I was astonished with two little features that made my mind (and my code :) ) move to BitBucket :
  • Custom Domain: Possibility to point a DNS entry to your BitBucket account (COOL)
  • Google Analytics support: Track the views of your projects (SUPER COOL)
Those two features, adding to the ability to create unlimited private and public repos, made me move all my code to BitBucket .

If you're looking for a code hosting provider with this features, don't look around anymore, just use BitBucket .

New WebSite

Hey guys! New year, new interface on the site :)

I moved from a private installation of Drupal to a site on Google Sites. It's easier to maintain, and it has good customization options allowing me to do almost anything!
It really is a nice platform to have a not-so-complicated-site-about-ourselfs-or-our-company :)

Hope you enjoy the facelift, and Happy New Year!

Hey guys,
My wife does some toys and decorations made on a technique called "Biscuit". She has a site (Miminhos da Kau) where she shows her work (sorry english speakers, just use Google Translate to read the site).
One of this days I asked her to make me an Android :) Here's the result:

AOSP Mirror with GitWeb

posted Jan 14, 2012, 1:51 PM by Carlos Silva

It's been asked *a lot* of times on the android-building mailing list a way to browse the AOSP (Android Open Source Project) code without having to download all the 7GB of it (?!?! :P)

So, I decided to make this happen creating a AOSP mirror and a GitWeb server on top of it. The mirror is syncable just like the official one is (, just replace with, plus just head over to and you'll have a full GitWeb interface to AOSP repos.

I sync the mirror once a day with the official one.

Hope someone finds it helpful.


PS: Be gentle with it ;)
