Bookmarklet for Google Dictionary

A reader of my blog was kind to let me know by telephone that he was eager to use Google dictionary with my inline dictionary bookmarklet. So today I am launching the Google version of my bookmarklet. As usual, drag them to your browser bar to use. The English to Bangla dictionary is still being developed, and not that robust.

Google Sites – Home of my academic website

I like wordpress  as a blogging environment. And freebeehosting is a as great as a hosting platform can ever be. But for my academic materials, I need a hosting platform that is 24x7 available without any interruption. Google sites seemed to be a good option.

The BUET website management allows to upload 5 files at a time. So all I did was to create an index.html file with iframe set to my google site page.



Google sites give options to rapidly create a website. I edited a default theme to incorporate the BUET logo into the banner. Problem is, you can’t have any custom CSS or javascript code, and if you are logged in, the google icons appear overhead.

Nevertheless, it is where I am hosting all my course related materials.

My BUET page: teacher.buet.ac.bd/sajid

My actual Sites Page: sites.google.com/site/smcbuet/

Update: Some of my friends are also using this technique. I'll keep link of their sites here:
