Funny Snoring App.

Just imagine the horror on your friends faces when they actually hear their PCs snoring when they are idle for a few seconds! Well, this tool of mine is just made for that. The PC starts snoring when the mouse is kept idle for a couple of seconds. It even starts along with Windows. The file can be installed unnoticed by the user. The removal tool is also supplied along with the package.

Happy Snoring guys!!

Multiple Instance Yahoo! Messenger 1.0

Once I had this in mind, to produce the smallest patch that will allow you to run multiple instances of Yahoo Messenger! And finally I produced one. I always thought you had no reason to download Yahoo! Multi Messenger that was as big as the original messenger itself just to have multiple instances. My patch is just 20 KB which makes it the smallest patch ever of its kind.

Another Photologger Post

A took all these in a long, lazy and dusky time

You can see the local TV cable running somewhere midway through the photo

This is the same tree and the same cable

Oops!! Sorry cable, you missed the shot this time around!!

My first ever stint as a photologer

I always wanted a DSLR camera. But, they used to tell me I wouldn't require one any time soon. So I thought I will go for a digital camera instead. These are a few of the first shots taken. The first one is my favourite!!

Guess what this is!!

Part 2: The Obligation

So, I thought I might take a long time to get back the right mood I had the other day. But here I am with the right set of moods. And if you are interested in reading further, you may. Else you are always welcome to comment on my blog and tell me what I lack in here. Its been a few days since I stopped. And I lost all the continuity. So where am I? yeah, I am with my lenses. And yes, I found some triangular shaped stuff too. I did not know what those were. I thought books would provide me with right answers I was looking for. I was always a person who wanted to learn things by myself. I hated when others tell me how to. And i now think that feeling always had its own benefits. I was lucky I was at my ancestral place when my curiosity opened the field glasses(binoculars) because it had a lot of books. It was a massive collection. They used to love books so much. And one of my uncles was a scientist himself and he was responsible for this mega collection of books. He wanted his children to be like him one day and he bought another load for them it seemed. When those children grew big he dumped all the old books in here, where I am now. Mind you, my uncle is much older to me now and so are his children. So I started searching for the book which I hoped would give me the answers. I knew from past experiences that the book had to have "Physics" somewhere in its title. I got hold of one and found out those triangular stuff were called prisms and can be used to split white light into seven colours. But having taken those out, I really found no good use of them apart from being able to see the seven colours on a white screen placed a little away. Those colours were overlapping each other and produced no good rainbow disguise. So left those things alone. But I had one important thing left to do before I can lose interest in it. I had to assemble back what I had disassembled. Now that was easy as I thought. But unfortunately on my way back from the rainbow experiment I further disassembled one of those prisms. My butter fingers dropped it on to the hard floor and broke what had been lying safe and sound inside the field glasses for seemingly many a year and again seemingly of no use to anyone. But my 'seeming' thought was proved wrong when I had the blast of my life from my Dad. I fell under the obligation that I would never open anything without his permission, an obligation that stands even today.

Sleepy again. So have I improved? I don't know. You should be the one who should be telling that. You might see the next post in a few days. See you soon.

My First Ever Anti-Privacy Move: My First Personal Post

I really never thought I could start blogging. I was a person who was deeply concerned for my online privacy. I always thought bloggers are never given the basic rights that they deserve. I hated the way Yahoo handed over information about a Chinese blogger to Chinese law enforcement agencies just for raising his voice against some of the policies of his government. Now, that for me, is gross violation of basic human rights. Okay, then maybe I thought I will start blogging using neither my real name nor that of my acquaintances. But, having said all that, this blog is under my real name. Speaking of names, I always loved to have an alias on the net. U know, I always wanted to be a person involved in hacktivism and the very thought that all those famous hactivism members had an alias on the cyberworld and many had successfully managed to conceal their real identity, made me want to be like one of them, known to the rest of the world by some other alias. I had even once dreamt of me becoming so famous a hactivism member that people had nothing to do but to talk about me and my alias everywhere on the cyberspace; google searching my alias would yield thousands of results; the media was desperate to reveal my real identity but to no avail; my alias dominated the online news columns, the magazines, the press; I became the folklore. Those were the dreams I had as a thirteen year old. Let me tell you, I have changed a lot since then, a lot mature to be honest. Now that I am nearly 20 I know, I had been changing a lot through the years. Books, cricket and science were my only passion a long way back. Apart from a few programs that had captured my imagination, I never used to watch the idiot box. But surprisingly I had this passion for cricket. I used to play it quite well. I looked stronger than what I really am or was, while playing cricket. Moving on to the books part, I really loved them. Its hard denying that. I loved them much more than what I do now. They always gave me company wherever I go. Even though I had read a lot of comic books, I loved science books just as well. Its always said most parents hate children's critical curiosity (nagging doubts). Maybe I realised that much before than normal and I resorted to books to find my answers. Another reason for that was maybe due to the fact that I felt I wasn't always getting the truth out of my parents.

I was always intrigued by the space and the heavenly bodies. I started reading about them much more to satisfy my child curiosity. Thereby I learnt of Galileo and his telescopes. I hardly could wait to make one. I had this binoculars of mine which was seemingly very old and thought was of no use to anyone. I opened it up using the screw driver which at the instant of opening I didn't know that the tool was really called star screw driver. I was amazed at the stuff I found inside. It was enough to keep me busy for another few months. By then I had forgot about the space and the heavenly bodies which I had so much gazed at. I was looking into this thing I had just opened. A number of lenses!! Just the things I was looking for.

I stop here. I feel very sleepy. Gonna hit the bed now. I will tell you the rest when I am in the right mood. And I am afraid that wont happen in a long time to come. Lets hope so, if whatever you have read is boring. Maybe I need a bit more experience of blogging one life away. If no, then wait for my second post. People consider personal blogs as works of precious art event though most of them know that their blogs haven't got many readers.
