2GB of Free Storage!!

Posted by on in iNews | 3 comments

GMail users worldwide seem to have noticed the fact that the storage of their free GMail accounts have doubled to 2000MB in last 2-3 days, as you can see from the screen shot of my GMail account. 😀

So, is GMail gearing up for the Public Release? Or is Google hotting up the Size Wars? Its noteworthy that GMail celebrated its 1st anniversary of being in Beta this April 1st. It went live into Beta last April 1st, triggering the Size Wars which saw an increase in free storage by eMail giants like Yahoo! & Hotmail. Yahoo! seems to have however marked Hotmail as its rival & seems to have given up trying to chase after GMail. It first increased the free storage size from 4MB to 100MB but when MSN announced 250MB for Hotmail, Yahoo! too increased its free storage from 100MB to 250MB. Hotmail however offers 250MB only to select users who are from US, UK, Canada & Japan.

Its been all over internet now, that how the homesite of the popular open-source blog WordPress, spammed the search engines!! 😯

Yes, as I came to know about it from JD, I was astounded. I couldn’t have believed that!! This was raised in the WordPress Support forums but that topic was closed by a moderator, then Matt re-opened it, posted his comments on the issue & re-closed the topic. He did the right thing by closing the topic, or the forum would’ve been overwhelmed with replies to that topic, but the issue is now plastered all over the world wide web!!

Trying Avant!!

Posted by on in Serious Jokes | 0 comments

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.

Yes, the Indian arm of eBay, 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

Day 2 @ MAX 2005!!

Posted by on in iDevelop, iNews | 5 comments

Today, 15th March 2005, was the second & final day of Macromedia MAX 2005 Conference here in New Delhi, India. And it promised to be really cool than what it was yesterday!! 😀 I was waiting for the conference to begin, & it began right at 9am IST with Greg Rewis again. 😀

Yes, Greg Rewis for 3 sessions. He started off the first session with using CSS for page layout, instead of Tables. Ok, several guys have been pushing me that I should embrace CSS based page layouts & I’ve been kinda avoiding that because of the lack of time I’ll need to put into learning about creating CSS based page layouts. But what Greg showed today in the first 20-30 minutes is that its really easy to do a CSS based page layout, & using a CSS based layout means a lot of flexibility. I mean I never thought that I can create a CSS based page layout so easily, and though he demonstrated this by using DreamweaverMX 2004 & its advanced CSS features, I really don’t need it for that. Its for those who can’t hand code. But I can hand code that faster that it’d take me to do it via Dreamweaver, really cool stuff. I’ll be trying that out next, really many thanks to Greg for easing that out. 😀
