Removing Adobe Air apps on Ubuntu

I was trying to remove AgileAgenda after fiddling with it for a week and deciding it wasn't going to cut it. There's no Adobe Air Application "uninstaller" in the menu, and search engine results usually point to Mac lurv, or not.  Seems like uninstalling Air apps on OSX is bloody.

I did find this nice article on removing Adobe Air on Linux and gave it (well parts of it) a shot.

jon@jedi-ntbk:/opt$ sudo dpkg -S /opt/*
adobeair-enu: /opt/Adobe AIR
com.agileagenda.agileagenda.f49a4d8df78a1fee7a3be440dc11bab18d922274.1: /opt/AgileAgenda
de.makesoft.twhirl.0ea062bc275e7ed1e6ec3762effd73c7158adf33.1: /opt/twhirl

I merely copied the package name of AgileAgenda, ran dpkg with the right switches, and pfft app's gone! Menu entry seems to be gone too.

jon@jedi-ntbk:/opt$ sudo dpkg -P com.agileagenda.agileagenda.f49a4d8df78a1fee7a3be440dc11bab18d922274.1

Family Visits Singapura

My parents and in-laws traveled to Singapore last September and it was truly memorable! I'm trying out some code to display a Google Photos album and it's quite cool that I'm able to embed the album here. Credits to Pavex for the great tool. He details out how to use it here . Check out the album below!
March was a good month. Not just because it's my birthday month, but I've been able to do more physical exercises as far as I'm allowed, and I've also been able to get through my first month back in the job. For the first couple of weeks, I thought I was going to do 4 hours a day at most, and turn up the heat bit by bit until I'm able to do 100% again. But I suppose having to rest over a month does have its toll. It took significant effort to try not go all in with guns blazing on the first day back at work. LOL Anyway, I'm trying something new this year. We've migrated our applications to a better platform, and we'd like to push that to the cloud this year. It'll obviously need a lot of liaising and cooperative work with other teams and domains so I'm going to do more engagement and solutioning than the usual engineering this time. Last week, we did a platform-related hackathon and a critical refresh across clusters. There's going to be a lo
