Well I am not putting one up, but in case someone wants to - it’s rather simple.
Your status will be shown as ONLINE as long as you are signed into Google Talk.
Well, it’s definitely much better than calling it the ‘BlackPad’ :).
I still don’t see the need for a Tablet for myself. Putting it up here, in case anyone is interested.
The workers weren’t allowed to use the toilets in the residential towers, so we now have the staff urinating on the DESIGNER walls. Shaabaash.
And of course there were even more interesting updates highlighting just how ‘ready’ things were:
Lalit bhaiya, are these issues also a ‘matter of perception’? If yes, then I guess you will be in the minority of people who would be fine with urinating against the wall or snakes slithering across the rooms or furniture collapsing. I pity the guests visiting your house.
Well, that’s one way to get users interested.
Something interesting reported on Gizmodo:
Season 1 had started off ok, but it got a bit err.. boring towards the end. Came across Season 2 and decided to give it a shot. Season 2 – Downloaded, Watched and Deleted.
As it turns out, Uther just gets more irritating with every episode. So does the entire series. Too many holes in the storyline and way too much stupidity from the characters. Seemed more like a soap opera and I have limits to how much drama I can tolerate. Ended up scanning through most of the episodes.
Will wait till the third season is completed and then will Fast Forward through that as well (I believe 2 episodes have already been aired).

In my opinion, Vodafone India really fucked up with this one. Makes me want to throw away my BlackBerry and never admit that I had one!
Lots of people saying it’s an awesome ad. I HATE IT. Can’t figure out WHY anyone would pay for such a shitty campaign. Reminds me of the tele tubbies nonsense (Shoot me.. shoot me NOW).
Yes, the concept is clear – BlackBerry is no longer JUST a business phone. I get that. But COME ON! This ad is just sad, pathetic, desperate and so so so gay!!
There has to be a better way of portraying that the device is not just a business phone. Seriously BOYS!!
JFTR – Office guys: ‘We are so very very clever’ (oh please) WTF!!!
Downloading it now.
Installed on my 9700. It runs, but.. err.. doesn’t really seem to be doing much. Can’t do anything after signing in.
Perhaps THIS version isn’t compatible with all devices (would be nice if it was mentioned somewhere), or may be I did something wrong somewhere.
Apparently, the application acts up if your Dropbox is empty. If you have even one file in it, it seems to work just fine.
Lalit bhaiya - Clean is clean. Filth is filth. Doesn't matter what country you are from. If you are a shitty person in Scotland, you will be a shitty person in India as well. Once a chutiya, always a chutiya.
So - bakwaas band kar, pick up the mop and get to work.
In my opinion - the best thing would be for the CGF to call off the games. As it is there are reports of athletes withdrawing from the games. Wouldn’t really make that much of a difference.
Why not call it off and rename it to Corrupt Wealth Games and let Kalmadi and Bhanot compete amongst themselves as to who can come up with more crappy explanations for what happened to IRS 7,000 Crores.
Done with Seasons 1-7.
Nice show. Some of my friends think the show is err… inappropriate (prudes!!). I find it hilarious and it has just the right amount of eye candy for me. Not too much, not too less.
Season 8 premiered on 20-09-10. Downloaded the first episode but will wait till I have a few more episodes before I start off with Season 8.
There are two characters I hate the most:
Surprisingly, I don’t have that much of a problem with Judith (Marin Hinkle). I don’t like the character, but I don’t hate her as much.
My favourite character (other than Charlie, of course) is Evelyn Harper (Holland Taylor). Simply put, she is just too cool.
This is what Craig Hunter reportedly said on 16-09-10:
Now, some headlines from 21-09-10:
Dave Currie, the Kiwi Chef de Mission says:
Commonwealth Games Federation president Michael Fennell says:
Four countries find the village totally crap. England however says it sets a new standard (Honestly, when I read ‘Commonwealth Games Village here is better than the Beijing Olympics’ I rolled my eyes. Some things are just too hard to believe).
There is a possibility that the English players were given a better block in the village. However, more likely the British delegation got a taste of Delhi’s corruption curry and sent in a favourable report.
I would really be interested to read what Craig Hunter has to say NOW, after four countries have complained about the VILLAGE.
Typical Danielle Steel book. A good read on a lazy day.
Had a bit of a problem with the elaborate explanations about Sarah’s feelings being repeated every few pages. Also hated the parts about Sarah’s trip to Europe where she tries to find more details about her Great Grandmother.
I am all for plans working out and trips not going to waste, but I would have preferred if she found the information from libraries or newspaper articles or some old records - as opposed to having a chance run into the new owner of the chateau who has an old grandmother or great grandmother with an excellent memory, who worked in the chateau ages ago.
A bit too much of a stretch for me.
Barring that, like I said – the book is a good read for a lazy day.
Ever get tired of people asking you questions which could easily be answered were one to do a Google search? Well, a few people I know happen to be so lazy that they simply refuse to do a search.
Instead of yelling “Google it, you moron”, I now send them a link generated from www.lmgtfy.com
Try it out. I find it cool, and gets the message across. Basically you go to lmgtfy and type out the search query. The site will generate a link. Copy that link and send it to the person who had asked the query and was too lazy to search himself.
What s/he gets on clicking the link:
A step by step demonstration on how the person could have just used Google - ending with the search results being displayed.
Note: You don’t necessarily have to go to lmgtfy to generate the link. You could simply type out the link yourself by sticking to the format/scheme i.e. - “http://lmgtfy.com/?q=(Search Query)” and that would work just as well.
Gham mujhe, hasrat mujhe, vahshat mujhe, saudaa mujhe
ek dil deke khudaa ne de diya kya-kya mujhe
Hai husuul-e-aarzu ka raaz tark-e-aarzu
main ne duniya chhod di to mil gai duniya mujhe
Kah ke soya hoon ye apne iztaraab-e-shauq se
jab vo aayen qabr par fauran jagaa dena mujhe
Subah tak kya-kya teri ummeed ne taane diye
aa gayaa tha shaam-e-gham ek neend ka jhonka mujhe
Ye namaaz-e-ishq hai kaisa adab kiska adab
apne paay-e-namaaz par karne do sajdaa mujhe
Dekhte hi dekhte duniya se main uth jaauunga
dekhti ki dekhti rah jaayegi duniya mujhe
Wouldn’t be pushing too much to have it include GPS positioning as well. I mean, if I were to lose my Biometric Wallet, I would like to get it back.
Slim chance of anyone wanting to return it, but even if they did - how would they know who it belongs to or how to reach the owner? They can’t open the wallet and check up on the ID’s anyway.

Vista and Windows 7
Link (for those who might be curious).
I haven’t bothered with IE9, and I don’t think I will. Just thought I would put it up here, in case anyone is interested.
I am using Windows at work (not out of choice). But that’s XP (it took 2 Service Packs to finally get it right and it’s the only one that seems to work). If there was an IE9 for XP, I just might have given it a shot on my office PC. Ummm.. yeah, may be I would.
At home, well I do have a couple of laptops running Vista but then.. err, I don’t really use them much. Their primary purpose, as of now is - External Storage Devices with LCD.
I do have one laptop running Windows 7 too, but … why would I bother using Windows when I have a Mac.

And obviously gets arrested.
Come on, seriously - just HOW stupid can you be!?
Gham ki baarish ne bhi tere naqsh ko dhoya nahin
Tune mujh ko kho diya maine tujhe khoya nahin
Neend ka halkaa gulaabi-saa khumaar aankhon mein tha
Yuun lagaa jaise vo shab ko der tak soyaa nahin
Har taraf divaar-o-dar aur un mein aankhon ka hujuum
Kah sake jo dil ki haalat vo lab-e-goyaa nahin
Jurm aadam ne kiya aur nasl-e-aadam ko sazaa
Kaatataa huun zindagi bhar main ne jo boyaa nahin
Jaanta hoon ek aise shakhs ko main bhi 'munir'
Gham se patthar ho gayaa lekin kabhi royaa nahin
Got this from Some Contrast. Pretty sure that those interested would already have the information. The reason for me putting up this post is:
Considering that this is an official communication, the least ZAIN could have done was have someone proofread it before sending it out.
Nothing new about it. Ever heard of WebTech Wireless? It would seem that a lot of people haven’t.
Sending off an alert via SMS/Phone call err.. ahem. Well considering that all the major work had already been done by others YEARS ago, what exactly did the people at Tcop actually do? Shove in a SIM card and have it shoot off text messages? That’s all it takes to make a headline?
We have had (for years) devices to track the movement/locations. There are also systems which give you alerts (over a web interface) like Door Open, Ignition On/Off, Car Stopped, Door Opened, Seat Belt On/Off bla bla with the locations and time stamps.
I actually watched my friend use the web interface in Kuwait YEARS AGO keeping track of his delivery trucks and where the drivers were taking the trucks. He has been using it for about 4 years, now.
BUT IRS 7,000 is rather cheap. Which makes me wonder - just how well does this device work? Especially when they put up that there are NO OTHER CHARGES except from the second year onwards a IRS 100 (annually) to Vodafone - That’s REALLY cheap.
BTW, the headline of the article SUCKS - “Now You Can Talk To Your Car Even After It’s Stolen”. COME ON!
Better than Brazil and France!! Oh boy. Looks like the economic crunch is worse than I thought! I would rather not go on a holiday if I couldn’t afford a good one. But that’s just me.
Meer Taqi Meer…
Faqiraana aaye sadaa kar chale
miyaan khush raho hum duaa kar chale
Jo tujh bin na jeene ko kahte the hum
so is ahd ko ab wafaa kar chale
Koi naa-ummeedaana karte nigaah
so tum hum se muunh bhi chhipaa kar chale
Bahot aarzu thi gali ki teri
so yaan se lahu mein nahaa kar chale
Dikhaai diye yuun ki bekhud kiya
humen aap se bhi judaa kar chale
Jabeen sajda karte hi karte gayi
haq-e-bandagi hum adaa kar chale
Parastish ki yaan taeen ki ayei but tujhe
nazar mein sabon ki khudaa kar chale
Gayi umr dar band-e-fikr-e-ghazal
so iss fan ko aisas badaa kar chale
Kahen kya jo puuchhe koi hum se "meer"
jahaan mein tum aaye the, kya kar chale
If you can’t speak the language, why bother!
Watch from 1:33 marker. Jaahil gawaar! ConspiraNcy!! WTF is 'conspirancy'.
Here are some ‘highlights’ for you:
About an hour back, I was at Alghanim Electronics. A Kuwaiti guy was there with his friend looking for a very specific GPS device - ‘Germany’ GPS.
He explained something. His friend explained something. The sales guy explained something. A few confused glances and about 2 minutes later, the Kuwaiti points to a box and says ‘Germany GPS’! That was the device he was looking for.
Any guesses what the box said?
