Yippee! Got myself a new Lappy!

Yippee! Got myself a new Lappy! published on No Comments on Yippee! Got myself a new Lappy!
Since I’m reading for the BSc Honors in IT at SLIIT. I had no other option than moving to a boarding place near the campus. And after moving to the boarding place all i had was ma good ol’ thinkpad lappy which was not so cutting edge anymore 😛 I had my desktop pc at home but moving the beast to the new place was too much trouble. so I had no choice but to use my IBM thinkpad for few weeks until i get myself a new lappy. I checked the local dealers for few models and quickly realized that I’m too broke to buy an IBM thinkpad which are IMO overpriced in SL. correct me if i’m wrong but I really don’t think those lenavo thinkpads got the same durability of the old IBM thinkpads. Any lenavo users there???

So i decided to go with another “well known for durability” brand, ASUS! yep! luckily they got a new series of Notebooks which are priced reasonably considering the quality of ASUS products. Not to mention there were HP and Acer laptops which were more cheaper but i didn’t fancy having anything other than ASUS since I was such an ASUS fanboy 😀
So I decided to buy the ASUS X51R series lappy which had a Core Duo 2.0Gz processor. And I was able to get a 7.5k discount from the Epsi guys (our local ASUS dealers) thanks to Suchetha 🙂

The first thing I did just after coming back from Epsi was repartitioning the 120GB HDD removing the evil Proprietary OS from my precious lappy. when partitioning i created one big (90gigs) partition for the /home and 1gb for swap. Rest was used to create three more partitions. One for my primary distro and the other two for installing testing versions and betas.
So now i’m back on my old track and the only prob i have is the lack of time. Not because SLIIT stuff are keeping me busy (actually theres nothing much to do these days, maybe its because this is the first semester), but because i have a ton and few more kilos of stuff to do. As most of you guys have noticed, my blogs have been deserted during the past few months. I’d love to get back to the old schedule where i posted 10+ new articles per week, but i really don’t think i’ll have that much of free time in the upcoming years 🙁 so i’ll try to post at least once a week. well, it’s better than nothing right??? 😀

84,000 Hits! My blog Rocks!

84,000 Hits! My blog Rocks! published on No Comments on 84,000 Hits! My blog Rocks!

Blog stats! It’s always the coolest thing about blogging. Having a big number, I’m sure all ma fellow bloggers will agree with me, That blog hits for a blogger is like an ice cream for a kid! They both love to have more and more, and some more. I felt so glad to be a blogger, In early days, when I was having 10 or 15 (or very much less than that) Hits per day to my blog, I couldn’t be happier when I had 120 hits one day, But now my blog got way more than that, I still love to have more and more. Why are we bloggers love to have more hits to our blog? I don’t know about all, but I think many bloggers including me, feel that we are helpful to the others, It’s really nice when we can share our knowledge with another knowledge seeker, It’s the human nature, to feel special (happy) when you help someone with knowledge or opinions or… anything. I think that “happy feeling” is the gift from the nature to the man who is helpful to the others. And when people show him their grace by leaving a comment..nothing could be better.

This is the way I feel about my blogging life. I think many bloggers think the same way while some others may thinking in a complete different way. Who knows? may be you do. If you are a blogger, what do you think you are blogging for?

FirefoX RoX! here are some haX Part

FirefoX RoX! here are some haX Part published on No Comments on FirefoX RoX! here are some haX Part

Hi!
Remember some guys blamed me that there’s no use in opening Firefox inside Firefox? 👿 . Ok! Here is an useful one. 😀
You know what happens when you type a “word” in the Firefox address bar right? yes it gives a Google search on that “word”. As an example if we type “wordpress” in the address bar and press Enter key then Firefox will Google for “wordpress”.
But what if you want to go to wordpress.com or wordpress.org ?. Ok here is the trick!
First open a new tab in Firefox by pressing Ctrl+T type “ANYTHING” in the address bar and press Ctrl+Enter It will automatically add http:// and .com and go to http://www.ANYTHING.com
If you press Shift+Enter It will go to http://www.ANYTHING.net and pressing Ctrl+Shift+Enter will automatically add http:// and .org and will go to http://www.ANYTHING.org
How cool is that?… 😕 well, not that cool.But I’m sure its useful

Forbidden side of a web site-See what web sites hide from you

Forbidden side of a web site-See what web sites hide from you published on 1 Comment on Forbidden side of a web site-See what web sites hide from you

Hi!
It seems my previous trick (or hack) on Firefox has become a bit famous.isn’t it? Anyways! Here is another hack (man! am I becoming a life hacker or what! 🙄 ) this is a really curious thing to check out.
We all know what search engines do right? yes Search! baby search! they search every where for everything. And what do web site owners do? The do various SEO (search engine optimization) stuff to make the things easy for the search engines so the SE’s will search the directories inside the web sites easily and bring more traffic to the site!. Hm… Ok C.J.! enough of the technical stuff,why are you telling us all this? This is why…
Do you know that there are some directories in web sites that they don’t want the general public to know about? Well, there are! Then what do the site owners do to hide them from us? They bribe the search engines 😀 Hm…
well what they do is put a text file including the directory names, that should be excluded when searching. So the search engines read that file first and exclude their content in the search results page……
But you know that us geeks can’t stay out of trouble right? Yes! there’s a way you can see what are the hidden directories are! All you got to do is put /robots.txt after the domain name and see what the site owners don’t want you to see 😈
How about checking out what Mr.Bill Gates got to hide from us? 😀 Here you go
http://www.micr*s*ft.c*m/r*b*ts.txt
And what about larry and sergei? yeh!
http://www.g**gle.c*m/r*b*ts.txt

And guys(and gals) you better not to use this with WordPress.com or else Our good old buddy Matt will kick me out of WP 😯 .Well,he is a very open guy and may not have anything to hide 😀 But why take the risk 😆
