During the water crisis I was left with a bit of free time on my hands during the consequent government shutdown. So to kill the time, I wrote a small Android application, called Folhuvaiy.
Folhuvaiy is a simple Thaana (The Dhivehi language script) text editor, and note taking app for android, which allows people to make quick notes on their Android powered mobile.
Folhuvaiy will also let you email your document collection to anybody.
It's very rudimentary at this point, but I hope to add more features to it in time.
Folhuvaiy is available for download on google play
Here's a screenshot.

Welcome 2015! I do realise this comes a bit late in the year, but I finally managed
to find the time to update the antiquated website into something more modern. That,
and I finally moved the thing away from blogger
While doing so, I also decided against migrating some of the old material.
So if you're looking for an older post, you can find the old blogspot
archive over at http://kudanai.blogspot.com, which
I've left as-is (for prosperity's sake).
I decided to go with pelican as my content generator.
For a couple of reasons, which are;
- I love Markdown
- I love Python
- I love the idea of static sites & flat files.
All in all, I'm fairly convinced that this is the way to go, as it allows me to
seperate the semantics from the layout quite nicely, and completely let go of
messy html tags inside the content.
Over the next few weeks I will hopefully be migrating the rest of the content over.

If you came here looking for the Guitar chords that used to be hosted here,
I have good news for you. About an year or so ago, my good friend nashath
and I developed a simple website to function as a database of lyrics & guitar
We called it gitar.mv
It's designed to allow anyone to contribute to it. So head on over,
and upload your own content. I have already migrated all the content
that was here to it.

So the 1st EVER hackathon held in the Maldives concluded today, and I must say it was
an awesome experience. We had 40+ Maldivian devs coming together and putting
together some very interesting products during the 24 hour timeframe.
The kickstart blog and their
website have more details of what went down.
We won btw. That's to say, myself and my partner in crime maail
managed to snag the first prize from the peer voting process for our
project titled Vindhu.
Vindhu, is a location based, social blood donation application which aims
to invert the flow of people looking for blood, and encourage active, direct
donations among the donor pool.
We hope to revise the app and make it available for the public soon.

After much experimentation, I finally managed to get the Maldives Constitution into
a properly rendering re-flowable ePub.
My earlier experiments were somewhat
@font-face embeds within the ePubs css files didn't quite
work as expected. Then ipdf announced that EPUB3.0 would include directives
to handle right-to-left languages such as Thaana.
Finally, using the new specification, I was able to produce a proper EPUB
file which should display properly on any E-reader that supports EPUB3.0. Currently,
this list is somewhat short, and as far as I know the best rendering is done by

The constitution is also available for Download on Playstore as an Android App
