Line wrapping is finally available in Netbeans 7.0

Well, if you ask me why I left Netbeans and started using phpStorm; I will say first: Speed, second: Line wrapping along with few other reasons. I’ve used Netbeans for quite sometime but I was very irritated as it did not have good line wrapping support. Some users may wonder why I am saying ‘good’ as it did not have any line wrapping at all.

The fact is that, line wrapping was implemented in earlier versions too but was not enabled by default as it was not stable.  It can be enabled by editing a configuration file but it was causing lots of troubles while coding. However, as the latest version, v7.0, is released on 18th April 2011, line wrapping is now available without any such hacking and so far it is good to me.

How to enable Line Wrapping?

Go to Netbeans  -> Preferences (or press CMD + ,) -> Editor -> Formatting

You will notice a drop down labeled as ‘Line Wrap’. Choose ‘After Words’ or ‘Anywhere’ as per your wish and then hit OK.

That’s it. Simply open a file (opened files need re-opening) and you will not see horizontal scroll-bars :).

Meditation Course from Quantum Foundation

I have a very very long plan to attend the meditation course offered by Quantum Foundation. From the 2nd year of my university life, I was planning to take the course. But I could not attend as my willingness, time and abilities did not match.

However, at the 2nd week of April, 2010, I have decided firmly that I must attend the upcoming course on April 16-19, 2010. It is because, from May, 2010 it will be totally uncertain where I will stay. I have so firm on my decision that I have even canceled the trip to Birishiri, Netrokona with my photography team.

On 12th April, I contacted Rabbit to book a seat for me. It seemed he was excited by hearing my decision :). Then I meet him at Charukola, DU on 14th April and paid the course fee. On 16th May I wake up early (very hard for me indeed ;)) and headed for Marriot Convention Centre. I reached there ahead of time and contacted Rabbit who helped me managing my workshop ID.

The first day was not nothing new at all, as I almost habituated with those of meditation and was practicing at home from long ago. But I was in some physical trouble which continued to 2nd day too. I was enjoying the lectures by Guruji Mohajatak Shahid Al Bokhari!

The third and forth day was more enjoying as I could realize my inner strengths.

Finally, I became Quantum Graduate and got certificates and ID card.

At late evening, another meeting was scheduled earlier by Guruji to meet all quantum members who are in the IT industry, specially web development sector. We all gathered in the “Proshanti Hall” of Quantum Meditation at Shantinagar! Interesting to know that we almost all were known to each other :).
