Ping-o-Matic now pings Moreover, good thing I’d say. 😀 Ping-o-matic has definitely eased things out for the bloggers who now don’t have to ping many services everytime they update their blogs. Just ping Ping-o-Matic & it’ll do the rest for you, pinging all the services. 😉Read More
Wanna kill SPAM? Kill the SPAMMERS instead. Well, not actually kill SPAMMERS but make it almost impossible for them to SPAM.
Just ask yourself a question. Why do spammers SPAM you? Just because they can’t afford advertising their websites/services etc. so they opt for the next best(worst) thing, they SPAM so as to spread awareness about their stuff. What does all this mean? That they are low on budget. If they are low on budget then if their hosting bills suddenly increase manyfolds, they wouldn’t be able to afford it. And just how can you increase their hosting bills? Their host just won’t bill them more simply because you want them to. 😉 So?? 😕
Well, you can simply pull so much data from their websites so that their bandwidth usage & their data transfer increases which would result in more bills.
I’ve been sitting on it for over a week now, I can’t hold it any longer. 😀
Ladies & Gentlemen, I give you the much awaited, iG:Syntax Hiliter v2.0 Final. 😉
After really serious coding & much fretting, the final release of iG:Syntax Hiliter v2.0 is knocking on your doorstep. This is really an update to which a lot of you’ve been looking forward to(so it seemed from all the eMails that I got). 😀 I believe that this release wouldn’t disappoint you & will prove to be worth the wait. 😉Read More
Are you using Linux? Do you proudly wear the Penguin? If yes, well then there are chances that soon you’ll be hauled into a court of law in patent lawsuits. Atleast that’s what Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer said in Microsoft’s Asian Government’s Leaders Forum in Singapore, reports Reuters. Steve also added that Linux violates over 228 patents & there are chances that someone will demand money for all that intellectual property rights. One big example is SCO Group Inc. who claims that Linux is based on its Unix & is suing big boys like IBM, etc.Read More
One of the earliest Blogging sensations & the most widely used hosted Blog service, Blogger.com(now owned by Google) will soon be available in your own lingo. Yes, that’s what Blogger Team Member Biz Stone wrote on GoogleBlog.
About time I’d say, this is a great step forward, indeed. Like Stone, I also felt amazed at how so many people from different languages managed to ind their way around with an English only interface. Though I haven’t had the fortune to come across many non-english blogs, but I’ve come across some of them & though I couldn’t understand what they said, some of them looked quite good. So like Stone, I now imagine what would happen if the users can get the interface in their own lingo?? 😕Read More
The Domain Keys System proposed by Yahoo! is backed by Earthlink & Google. In this system, the eMail server attaches a digital signature with all outgoing eMails which can be verified by the receiving server to validate its authenticity. But other big players AOL & Microsoft have teamed up & have proposed their own system, AOL’s SPF & Microsoft’s SenderID. Both Yahoo! & Microsoft have filed their technologies with Internet Engineering Task Force to make their technologies the global standards.Read More
Fianlly, months after when it intended to increase the free Inboxes to 250MB, MSN has given in & scores of free Hotmail users got the pleasant surprise, reports Wired.
But this generosity has been extended only to users from US, UK, Japan, Italy & Australia. Why this bias? :curse: Aren’t users from other countries worth 250MB? :curse:Read More
The latest issue of Macromedia Edge newsletter featured a great Fireworks tutorial. Its about colouring background imagery by Alan Musselman.
I’d have to say that those images in which foreground subject is in full colour & the background is Black N White, look real good & I wondered that it must be somewhat difficult creating that. But this tutorial changed my opinion.Read More
Happy Deepawali to all of you!! Its a festival of lights, so light candles & bulbs but don’t light crackers. They pollute the atmosphere & its already more polluted than it is good for our health. 😀 😉Read More
Yes, I finally got a Bike day before yesterday, a brand new LML Graptor. Its a 5 gear sleek bike with a 150CC engine that churns out 13.5BHP with fuel tank capacity of 17Litres & a max speed of 110KMPH. Quite a lot for me, as driving at more than 40KMPH would mean risking my bike & life as well increasing the possibility of getting a ticket. 😉 The legal limit here in New Delhi is 40KMPH for light motor vehicles. 😀Read More
