Saturday, December 28, 2002

today was a little better..not so boring plus it was such a beautiful day as well....but anywayz nothing new to write about.

read this news article...pretty stupid but kinda amusing at the same time

A watchman from a society of summer cottages in Russia’s Vladimir region, Sergey Sokolov, invented an effective method of struggle with burglars who frequently break into the summer cottages at night. Although the man himself is neither strong, nor awesome, he turned out to be a wonderful psychologist. He made special veneer bootprints which are extremely large: these devices leave too big prints on the snow around the cottages where the man is working as a watchman. When burglars attempt to break into the cottages, they first study the enormous bootprints left by the resourceful watchman here and there on the snow. Judging by the shoeprints, burglars think that the watchman is a huge and strong man, and they prefer to retire. The watchman says, the number of burglaries has reduced by almost 50% since the innovation was introduced.

i read this piece of news yesterday its pretty amusing - SANTA has been given the all-clear for Australian airspace on Christmas Eve. Transport Minister John Anderson said Santa had been fully briefed about changes in the national airspace system since his flight last Christmas.And it appears Rudolph the reindeer will lead Santa this year, in a bid to comply with aviation lighting rules. "I am pleased to confirm that Santa will be able to operate in Australian airspace as normal," Mr Anderson said in a statement."However, the briefing was complicated by a disagreement about the navigation lights carried by the sleigh."Mr Anderson said civil aviation regulations require all aircraft to carry red, green and white navigation lights.But Santa's elves had complained the lights would distract the reindeer."One of the reindeer, Rudolph, has a very shiny nose," he said."The Civil Aviation Safety Authority has therefore directed that Rudolph must lead the sleigh on Christmas Eve."Mr Anderson said as there had never been a complaint about low-flying sleighs and reindeer, Santa had been cleared to operate through the Adelaide, Coolangatta and Sydney airport curfew hours. -AAP

well majority of the day went in optimizing both my computers at home. I have a desktop a Sony Vaio and Dell Inspiron laptop- did a little defragging and ran this kewl utility...it gets rid of a lot of junk from your computer, you can download it from here. the name of the software is advanced system optimizer...its shareware and theres a trial for 30 days...and it uninstalls without a trace...give it a try.

alot of people i have talked to have talked about the downsides of these blogging softwares and some in the worst scenarios have been hacked....so im sticking with blogger...unless im bitten with the bug again.lol

Wednesday, December 18, 2002

i think my chances of putting up movabletype are slim on netfirms...its so difficult to install...and all the features they ask for are not easily available....then there are others, so easy to install but their templates are impossible to change...i mean what language are they written in, bec i can understand things written in HTML but this is quite weird and will take some time and patience...time i have alot on my hands, patience is the issue!!!!!
well if any one is interested here are the links for the various blog publishers.
Movable Type
if anyone is succesful with movabletype pls lemme know
yes!!!!! finally i am dun with finals....cant believe semester 1 is over.
my plans for winter...hmmm i dont know yet...maybe i mite go to NJ or maybe use movabletype to set a new blog...i am hoping for NJ.
anyways im still looking for a free webhost that will support movable type...any suggestions?

Tuesday, December 17, 2002

the eco final is over...wohoo!!!! 2 more to go.

during the eco final, there were a one guy was telling his friends his "master plan" at acing this final...little did they know that everybody gets different sets...dumbasses.
anywayz during the test the brainiac is trying to cheat off a paper ahead of him...sounds normal..but the guy with the same set was 2 rows ahead of him!!!!! the extremes ppl go to...he would have been better off studying for that final. lol

heres sumthing funny i read today-
Jack Nicholson has been asked to stop walking around his new home in Nebraska naked.Locals have been left stunned after getting an eyeful when they popped round to get a glimpse of the legendary hellraiser. One neighbour said: "Our delight turned to shock when we discovered that Jack walks around his house at all hours in the nude — apparently not caring whether the curtains are drawn."It was really quite odd and it was the talk of the town. I mean, we wanted to see Jack in person but this was ridiculous."The Easy Rider star and renowned ladies' man recently revealed that he "doesn't have the same libido" that he once possessed.But according to his neighbours, on-again-off-again girlfriend Lara Flynn Boyle was a regular visitor.

gotta study for calc and dreaded hist...:(

Friday, December 13, 2002

i cant believe it , but im actually all geared up for tommorrows final...lol

here something interesting i read in the paper...this guy had such a horrible streak of bad luck..he he. heres the story:-
ELKTON, Md. -- A Maryland man is hoping a new puppy can change his dismal streak of bad luck this holiday season. James Dawkins of Elkton was on his way to visit his hospitalized mother when he stopped to walk his dog. The dog fell through ice on a pond and died, despite Dawkins' rescue efforts. He got home to find police there. Someone had broken into his home and stolen his gun collection. Then he discovered that he'd lost $150 in cash while trying to rescue his dog. It was all his money for Christmas presents.
Dawkins decided to try to change his fortune by getting a puppy from the pound. He's named it "Precious."

and have fun with this click here

Wednesday, November 27, 2002

hey there...first day of holidays and it feels great ....actually did some work....and played some u2k3

yesterday my laptop got the supernova virus while i was downloading sumthing on kazaa. anywayz its a good thing i didnt shut down, but i detected it in its early stages...so started Norton Anti-Virus got rid of the sucka!!!!!but two of the main .exe couldnt be deleted...so thankfully for windows xp .....started taskmanager and killed the naughty .exe files.....ran the scan again and its gone...no major damage....phew!!! the thing is that this virus places more copies of itself in the c:/windows/media folder in the form of other questionable files and sets kazaa's shared folder as that so that it spreads.....in case ur not as lucky as i am and restarted it will give a couple of notices when ya start up, sumthing "like patch the hole or the ship will sink" etc....the best way to spot is it when u run the rogue application it will display a mssg like this "###0000000, application tried to read memory ending application" thats ur cue...the virus has struck...get ur anti virus running...if ya dont have an anti virus u can get an excellent free anti-virus from AVG anti-virus from AVG anti-virus and can complement that with the free virus scan from panda anti-virus Panda Online Scan.
for other ppl who have gotten the virus there are keys in the reg that have to be deleted otherwise it will never go away!!!!!

damn it was cold in the morning....wanted to play tennis, but i dont know with this kind of weather. brrrr!!!!!!!!!!!

Tuesday, November 26, 2002

Sunday, November 24, 2002

still working on the paper..it is quite a complex article and there are alot of discussions in it....overall 2 pages of the 3 have been dun....now working on the third one.
by the way the paper is on the book Maus by Art Spiegelman and the article used to compare with the book is Confronting Stereotypes: Maus in Crown Heights.

Saturday, November 23, 2002

yesterday i defragged my laptop and also did a scan disk....i do that regularly but this time i did it because at startup it would almost a minute to bring up the desltop icons, instead of loading them during the welcome screen. i then decided to restore it..did that successfully and did some of my other work....restarted the computer and guess what???? BLUE SCREEN OF DEATH!!!!!!! that too from windows xp...some fatal error about the windows logon procedure and thus the computer was shut down.....this same prob had apparently happened with my desktop so my brother knew how to fix it(its pretty tricky the key combinations that u have to hit in xp to get to the options page, whether how u wanna start up ie..dos-mode, safe mode etc). welll was able to load the seetings that previously worked and the laptop is up and running again...whew!!!!!!

better start on that paper now.

Friday, November 22, 2002

a nice way to end the weekend at univ...acing the calculus test and then treating ur self with a brownie frap...hmmmm...that was so good. well finally the weekend is here..then just two more days of classes, and thanksgiving break begins...what a feeling. but b4 i let that feeling make me extremely lazy i better start on that paper thats due monday.

Thursday, November 21, 2002

WHAT!!!!! i goto check my acct at myplay.com after a very long time only to discover that they are closing down...i was so shocked...reason for closing..Bertelsmann has bought it...what a letdown...u could store all kind of things there with their 3gb online space.

finally i understood the article that i was working on for my english paper...so the final draft will be a whole lot better.

gotta go study now.

Wednesday, November 20, 2002

it was a nice day today..perfect weather everything....the only downside was that the c programming proffessor didnt show up even though there was an assignment due today!!!! anywayz emailed it to the TA...so hopefully she doesnt count it as late. on a brighter note bec of the no-show got to leave univ early and make it in time for the simpsons...luv that show.

The Simpsons.

also really addicted to that new zip-zap game at shockwave....its alot of fun :)

and heres the poke the penguin link.

just activated the infra red port on my laptop...its so kewl..it automatically recognizes another computer within 8 ft. thats if they have a port as well, and are properly alligned....its so kewl.

Tuesday, November 19, 2002

got up a little early today even though i had class at 1pm bec had to work on programming assignment.....anywayz ran into sum trouble and went to univ at around 10 am to talk with the TA. the most irritating part was that the TA didnt even show up, even during his regular office was so mad >:| came back home and finally finished the program....it was a long one and took me an hour and 15 minutes to do......really tired after that. i am taking a break rite now, and maybe watch some tv.

Monday, November 18, 2002

well at univ rite now and have some time before class....well on the whole a vvv tiring day and history couldnt be anymore exciting, just doesnt seem to end...luckily enuff i have one more class and then i head home. we have mainly alot of macs here....just dont like them so used to windows.....and i do think that windows is better overall and windows xp in particular...well everybody has their own preference.
ahhh just one more week before thanksgiving break..cant wait for that(even though i have alot of work to do)

James Bond comes out this week wohoo!!!! removed the pics to decrease load times.

Sunday, November 17, 2002

finally i have come back to blogspot....after a long time at xanga i finally realized the shortcomings of xanga.com....i couldnt do anything with that website...that was the bad part...no additional html code....no adding custom modules...sumthing that i could do here. so instead of making it look like my fault i am going to put the blame on my brother....he was the one who started the search for the almost perfect FREE site......and along with him took me for the ride as well.
as for today i practically did nothing....actually more in need of a weekend of rest(yes even though i did nothing today!!!!!! )
