Applications can no longer be added as a custom tab in Facebook

Wondering why facebook disabled the following feature for applications:

"Due to changes in Facebook, you can no longer add Cities I've Visited (or any Facebook application) to a custom tab on your Facebook Profile page. Facebook phased out this feature and suggests that you access your favorite Facebook apps from the left hand navigation on your Facebook homepage." (source)

If you don´t bother to have your web site name ending with co.cc and you are searching for a free domain name service, co.cc offer can be a nice solution. If you have a blog ending with blogname.blogspot.com you can easily transform it to blogname.co.cc with just a few changes. You can also easily integrate with Adsense, Windows Live, and Google Apps. It also offers a control panel where you can easily edit the following parameters: CNAME, A, MX, NS, TXT.

After creating and configuring a new domain name you may search on Google for free web hosting and get many links writing and ranking free web hosting services. 000webhost.com is probably one of the best free web hosting providers. A free hosting account includes 1500 MB Disk Space, 100 GB Data Transfer,PHP with MySQL Database Support, cPanel Control Panel, Fantastico De Luxe 1-Click Autoinstaller and Website Builder Software. This can be very useful if you are building a site using Joomla open source content management system.

Creating a java applet for Roman to Numeral conversion and vice-versa

I was wondering if I could publish on my blog a small java applet for converting Roman to Numeral and vice-versa. I adapted the code I found on this web site and created the applet using Netbeans IDE 6.9.1 and when I built it, Netbeans generated 4 files: a html, a jar, a txt and a jnpl.

When the applet was ready, the first issue I found was where to find a place to host the files. After researching on the internet I found a tip saying that I could use Google Sites and create a new site associated to my Google account, and a page for holding files. After that I uploaded the jar and the jnpl files. Then edited the the html file, changing the url for the jar and the jnpl files and pointing them to the google site uploaded files urls. Then tested the html file on my dektop. After that I copied the content of the html file to my blog and posted it.

This is the final result using the .jnpl file:



You can obtain the same result without using the .jpnl file and using the following tag:
<applet
 code=JAppletRC
 width=275 height=175
 archive="https://sites.google.com/site/3hadvisory/files/RomanNumeral.jar?attredirects=0&d=1">
</applet>

You can download the distribution folder.
You can also download the source files.
