Introducing Vehicle Service Log

Download my latest app from the app store:

One thing great about being a software developer is that if you need some software or app, and if the software or app is not available or you didn't bother to look for one in the first place, you have the option of writing one yourself. And Alhamdullillah that's what I've done.

You see, I vaguely remember that I used to fill my motorcycle fuel every other week. But sometimes I get this nagging feeling that it is becoming less fuel efficent. I seem to be filling it almost every week sometimes. So I want to know for certain. I could probably jot down when I refuel everytime in a journal app or something, but I choose to write my own app for this specific purpose. So in short, I'm scratching my itch.

So I began writing an app with the goal in mind to keep track of when I refuel my motorcycle. But then I though, why not I just add a little bit more and add when I've serviced my car too. So finally that's what it became. And app that could keep track of when you refueled or last serviced your vehicle.

When you refill, you fill in the value of the fuel and it would automatically calculate the amount  based on the price of the fuel. You could change the price by clicking on the gear button and clicking on the fuel type. Or if you are using fuel apart from RON 95/97. you could add those fuel type and their respective price. In the settings page there is also a value for service interval and refuel interval. These are the default value added to your vehicle mileage when you add the event. You could adjust it to your preferred amount. I didn't put any metric on the amount nor any currency to the value so that this app could be used more universally although you would definitely would need to adjust the price of the fuel for your country. If for example the amount calculated is wrong, or you live in a country where the price of fuel change from station to station, then you can fix in the amount manually after you filled in the value.

You could keep track of events for more than 1 vehicle. But they would have to be of type car or motorcycle. You could probably just lump suv, jeeps, lorries, busses into the car category too for now since I don't own any of those vehicle and doesn't really see the need to see them differently for now.

My plan for this app is that eventually it would be able to sync to an online service so that me and my wife could both update the same car. And it would give a better reading of the current fuel efficency of the vehicle and how much you spend on fuel. But that's quite a bit far into the future for now.

So please to try it if you have an android device by downloading it here:

I would value any feedback given and might even incorporate some suggestions if you have any. I can't make any promises though as this is just a side project, more of a hobby thing, but I will try my best to accomodate. Thank you for your consideration.

Food first post

My blogs' name is High-Tech Rojak but I don't recall ever talking about food. So here's a first. Just recently I got some free time and finally got to cook the pasta I've bought for ages. So here's an account of how it went down.. :) Okay. That's the thing I cooked. I have no idea what it's called. At first I was thinking of buying the ribbon ones, then my wife looked at the colorful spiral ones and said "why not get these? they're more colorful" and so we got them (yes, we know nothing about pasta.. :) So I boiled it, actually put some salt and oil into the water so that they won't stick, drained it and tadaaaaa, you'd get the above. I remember once I tried to cook macaroni and I didn't drain it after boiling it, it filled up the whole pot. LOL... Learned my lesson. Next up the sauce. Like I said we don't know anything about pasta so here's the ingredients we prepared. Yes ladies and gentleman. Instant pasta sauce all bottl

Documentation is a must... after this.

I've been thinking quite a bit about documentation and the 'cost' it involves. And when I say documentation, I mean documentation in general about anything. One obvious case with the industry I'm involved in is user documentation (a.k.a The Manual). Creating great features in software takes time and effort but if it is not documented then the user won't even know about it and finally it never gets used. But then while documenting it you just wish that you're working on the next cool thing rather than have to write this up. So finally you end up not doing the documentation or doing it rather badly. Same thing with this blog writing. I have been doing some pretty interesting things with my phone (rooting it and using cynogenmod and all), some pretty significant life changes (my grandmother passed away) and a lot of other things which I should probably like to remember better or reflect more on it but not documented (here or anywhere permanent) and it would probabl

The Future Of Gaming

I love playing computer games. It's what originally drove me to learn computer programming, I wanted to create my own games. Until now I still have very little success with that, but... I have learnt to program web applications quite well and earning my pay using those skills. And I love open source software. Ever since I started programming professionally, my main work OS has always been Linux (various distributions and all and currently on Arch Linux). I always install dual-boot because... hardware problems (some projectors and printers just couldn't be detected by Linux when I started out, that's mostly not a problem now) and mainly to play games (sure there was some open source games available, but apart from "Battle for Wesnoth" and "FreeCiv" I don't actually recall any games I've played extensively enough to be remembered). But recently the gaming scene in LinuxLand has improved tremendously, partly thanks to the Windows 8 app store like
