Solution

1- Download Zar2RTF from here:

http://dl.noorsoft.org/download/free/Zar2RTFConv.zip

Several other mirrors (disable your pop-up blocker so you will get the file properly. Please let me know if any of the following links are dead):

2- Use the software inside the zip archive to convert your Zarnegar files to RTF or HTML

3- The converter keeps the line-breaks of the original Zarnegar file by using soft return in Word. It can be edited out with finding and replacing all instances of ^l with blank (^l is a regular expression. So, make sure that the option for “Regular expressions” is checked in your find-and-replace dialogue box. Use \n in LibreOffice and OpenOffice instead).

How to digitally sign an e-mail – Updated

I made a post in 2009 explaining how to digitally sign an e-mail with FireGPG. Unfortunately, “FireGPG is discontinued” and no longer supports Gmail. So, we need to do it differently now.

Objective: To sign your out-going emails through an on-line email provider such as Gmail or Yahoo mail.

Operation Systems: Any.

Browsers: Firefox or Chrome.

Add-on or extension for the browser: Mailvelop (get it from http://www.mailvelope.com/)

It works with: Gmail, Yahoo mail, Hotmail, and most other on-line, email providers.

Ubuntu and the Unity Paradigm

The first few days with Ubuntu 11.10 and its Unity

My system crashed completely. Everything in my Win7 installation is useless now. After saving my documents and whatnot from my dead Win7 installation using Ubuntu, now I’m thinking of giving up on Windows. I’m sick of it now. I’m sure Linux is going to give me a lot of headache and nightmares too, but in a long run, I think it’s the right decision to move away from Windows. I’m going to need a lot of help with stuffs in Ubuntu in near future and I’m counting on you. Wish me luck.
