Being a CIO..... !!

Posted by on in iNews | 0 comments

Would you like to be the CIO of your Company? Whether you want to be or don’t want to be, you should read this, Why be a CIO? by Michael Zammuto (via ProgrammersHeaven Newsletter)

I’ve always thought that the higher you are on the ladder, the difficult it becomes for you to breathe & Mr.Zammuto seems to be telling just that in this article, that the life of a CIO is just next to hell. ๐Ÿ˜€

An interview with a Spammer!!

Posted by on in iNews | 0 comments

Oh yeah, now we have SPAMMER Interviews!! A spammer is telling his(maybe her) end of the story, as to why he(maybe she) spams blogs & websites with comment spam. These spammers call themselves “Search Engine Optimisers” & they do nothing wrong, as per them. A vulnerability is there in the system & they are only exploiting that to their benefit, earning a 7 figure sum for their tedious tasks. ๐Ÿ™„ Besides its fun spamming websites & blogs. ๐Ÿ‘ฟ

Busy Me -- Part2!!

Posted by on in Serious Jokes | 0 comments

I’ve been busy as hell over the past 1-2 months & this has been the longest period of my in-activity. I got eMails from some of you guys asking whether I was OK & this blog is still active. ๐Ÿ˜€

Thanks for enquiring my well being guys, yes I’m alright, its just that I find it difficult to take time out for blogging after working for 15-16 hours a day. ๐Ÿ™ Things are not gonna improve in next few months as far as my work is concerned but I’ll try to organise my schedule a bit so that I can find some time to blog 2-3 times a week(possibly). ๐Ÿ˜‰

Microsoft's Big Payout!!

Posted by on in iNews | 0 comments

As per this report on c|net, citizens of California, USA are all set to claim their piece of the US$1.1 billion pie that Microsoft lost to California in a case filed by the latter claiming that Microsoft over-charged for Windows & its other softwares. Now this is one huge payout, & if you are a citizen of California & bought a Microsoft product between 1996 & 2001, you can file your claim.
You will be paid in the shape of vouchers ranging from $5 to $29 depending on the number of licenses of Microsoft products you purchased. The last date for filing claims is Jan 8, 2005. If the total amount claimed is less than the US$1.1 billion, then Microsoft will have to pay two-thirds of the remaining amount as technology donations to needy schools & they can keep the remaining one-third. How generous of the judge. ๐Ÿ˜€
But it doesn’t look like Microsoft will be able to save even a cent from this bounty. So far around 6,20,000 individuals & companies have filed for claim ranging from $50 to several million $$. ๐Ÿ˜ฏ

Windows without Media Player!!

Posted by on in iNews | 5 comments

Can you imagine? I can’t. Sad but true, Microsoft lost its Europe appeal & will now have to ship Windows without Windows Media Player, reports The Register.

I was against this when the decision was slapped by the EU on Micosoft & I’m still against it.

Firstly you don’t have any right to tell a company that they can’t give out a software of theirs for FREE with another software of theirs. That’s just taking away the freedom of doing business legitimately, that’s just dictatorship, when you are telling a company how they should sell their software, even when they are doing nothing wrong.

HAPPY NEW YEAR 2005

to all of you guys(n gals). ๐Ÿ˜€
May this year be more prosperous for you(& me). ๐Ÿ˜‰
A lot of people make resolutions for New Year, things they’d do & not do in the New Year. But I stopped making New Year resolutions a long time back as I don’t need a New Year to do or not to do anything, that’s what I believe. ๐Ÿ˜€ Still goodluck to those who believe in making New Year resolutions. ๐Ÿ˜‰

Do Them In!!

Posted by on in Serious Jokes | 2 comments

Ok, I’m now fed up with comment spammers. As noted in my last post, I’ve been under attack since last night. If that wasn’t enough, the spammer came back for more late this morning, flooding my blog with more. :curse:
So I decided enough is enough. Now I’ve installed Kitten’s Spaminator & heavily updated my Blacklist with Simon’s Blacklist & the WPBlacklist. Its now quite beefy, with over 2000 lines of spam words & urls & emails etc. If you want it, you can access it at my_blacklist.txt Feel free to use it. I’ll try & keep it updated. If you use any blacklist other than mine or have your own, I’d sure be interested in it. ๐Ÿ˜‰ But I will merge it in my public blacklist only if I find it worthy & if I find that you are blacklisting innocent domains/emails/IPs/words etc., I’ll not use it. ๐Ÿ˜€

Bloody Hell !!

Posted by on in Serious Jokes | 0 comments

Its been like hell here, with me wasting 2+ hours of my Sunday morning deleting comment spam which seems to have hit this blog of mine last night. And this is one of the biggest attacks I’ve faced at this blog, comment spam in access of 300. ๐Ÿ˜ฏ
And this time it isn’t for pagerank or link popularity, but just to show that they can spam. :curse: The comments contained not a single link that worked, just rubbish like

PHP Buggy!!

Posted by on in iNews | 0 comments

There are bugs(seriously) in PHP meaning that you need to upgrade so as not to let that potential nutter nut his way into your server, reports c|net.

The PHP Group released versions 4.3.10 & 5.0.3 which contained the patches that fill the holes with putty(I hope not).
So if you are using PHP4, get v4.3.10 or if you are using PHP5, get v5.0.3 now!! ๐Ÿ˜€
The website is the same old one, www.php.net ๐Ÿ˜€
