My First NuGet package: A serializer for C#

I've written a simple serializer for C#. There are no native dependencies, so that it can run on any architecture. And, as it is based on .NET Standard 1.1 it is also fairly portable.

It's still a free and open-source ePub reader, that packs a nice bunch of features.

How to Install Ubuntu on an External Drive and boot it on a Surface Pro 3

I've been trying to get a full Ubuntu install on an external USB3 SSD, but I could never make it boot. It turns out the files on the EFI partition have to be renamed. If one knows how to do that, the rest is quite simple.

Internet Explorer on Windows RT

I got my Surface a fortnight ago and I'm extremely happy with it - no complaints at all!

Understandably I use the Metro version of IE. At first I found it a bit limited compared to using Chrome (as that's what I've been using on my laptop) but found out that it's quite powerful.

The desktop version is the key to tweaking the Metro app. Here are a few things I changed that made my experience with the Metro app totally awesome.

New Book Renderer in Albite 3

I've been experimenting with a new renderer which would look a bit more realistic. Also, I'm planning to have a different kind of night mode: instead of having a black background, the overal contrast will be decreased and a few light effects will be added so as to simulate reading under the light of a night lamp.

Of course, there will be an option to switch back to the classic renderer as well.

Albite 3 UI

I've been working on a custom GUI for Albite 3 which would be a lot slicker, faster and far more useable than what Java Mobile provides by default. The graphics content mainly comes from Android 2.x, though there are some thematic touches from ICS.
