What’s got into Microsoft of late? The latest is that it’ll be offering 20 of its technologies that never saw the light outside its R & D department. What’s this about sharing technology & benefiting others?
Senior director of Microsoft’s Intellectual Property Ventures David Harnett was quoted as saying Read More

Great, who requires electricity in such a weather!! It grew a bit cold, the skies turned dark!!
I’m a great fan of Yahoo! Lanchcast & I’ve found it to be better than other free internet radio stations. Infact the ability to create your own station with the artists or genre of music you want to listen is quite cool. 😀 And for this service, you ofcourse need to have a Yahoo! account & Yahoo! Messenger 6 or above. 😉 Read More
In an earlier post, I remarked that Crazy Browser was giving me problems & I said that I’ll try Avant Browser to see if it fits the bill.
I tried it for a week but I’d say that its worse than the last time when I tried it. Its seems to be choked full of useless features like skinning etc. while there are hardly any good features that it has. The pop-up blocker is almost useless, it can’t block Scripts/Images/Active-X on a single tab, it blocks for all tabs & even then its not effective. Disabling Images & Scripts has no effect. Read More
I was just sitting idle(quite rare) now that I had some wierd thought about the 9/11 incident of World Trade Center. Read More
The US date format is MM/DD/YYYY, meaning that if today is 9th April 2005, it’ll be written as 4/9/2005, the month comes first & then comes the day. That’s why the incident date is written as 9/11, meaning September 11.
Found this test at Johnny Gulag’s blog, he took it, so I also took this test to test my English!!
Here are my results!!
You scored 100% Beginner, 100% Intermediate, 87% Advanced, and 76% Expert!
You did so extremely well, even I can’t find a word to describe your excellence! You have the uncommon intelligence necessary to understand things that most people don’t. You have an extensive vocabulary, and you’re not afraid to use it properly! Way to go!
Happy Holi to everyone!! I do hope you’ve had a SPLASH!! Its a festival of friendship, of washing away woes, sullenness & enmity with a cold splash of coloured water and making your enemies your friends. 😀
Last night, I attended the Holi Milan Party at my Mausi’s place & here are some pics that I shot from my mobile. Read More
Like many thousands of others, I also use IE6, I just find it convenient & I can lock it up so I don’t have to worry about security issues. Sure I also use FireFox but my main browser is still IE6.
But I don’t use it directly, I like tabbed-browsing & pop-up blocking so I’ve been using Crazy Browser, which is an interface for IE, providing features which IE lacks like tabbed browsing, pop-up blocking, script/image/active-x blockers etc. Its been 4 years since I’ve been using it & I’ve been satisfied with it, even though its development hasn’t continued after 2001. But now it seems is the time to move on. Crazy Browser has crashed on me three times in past 24 hours. Though it has crashed a few times in past too but not this frequently. So I thought its time to get another interface for IE. And one came to my mind immediately, Avant Browser. Read More
Yes, the Indian arm of eBay, Baazee.com really SUCKS!! 👿 They are hand in hand with fraudsters selling on their portal & to deceive buyers, they claim to have a Buyer Protection Program which they say is to protect buyers from fraudsters. 🙄
On 14th Feb. 2005, I placed a bid on an auction at Baazee for a Nokia Handsfree. Below is the picture of the product on auction that was displayed by the seller giftsindia Read More
