Hmm … thinking what I am up to ? okay, I had the same confusion when I found newsÂ ” Wine 1.4 released” etc on digg.com. After that confusion, I read ….. WINE is an opensource project for Linux operating systems, which will help you run Windows applications on your Linux computer. Awesome !!
I did install WINE on my Linuxed laptop, and tried to install Chrome on it. However, it did not work since the Google Chrome file for this was not available for download for some reason. It gave me a “404 not found” error. But, I can use notepad and few other applications on Linux now.
I do not know much about WINE at the moment. However, I will try to use it more in coming days, and let you all know my experience. If you need more info on WINE,Â jump to following pages.

Here, in the World Wide Web, your IP is your identity . It shows whereÂ you are from, which ISP you are using and a lot of other details.( Don’t worry it won’t show your name or address !! )
Whenever you say you are from India, on the web, someone can actually verify if you are really from India. This is useful when people do online transactions. Checking the IP address location, is one way to prevent online fraud.
I will tell you how we use it, at work. Lot of people try to purchase hosting accounts using stolen cards etc.
There are a few countries from where most of them operate. From Wikepedia,
“Yahoo! has launched Yahoo Buzz”. At first, this news did not impress me. The website also looked almost same as any other Yahoo! service. After sometime, I was able to figure out what this Buzz is all about. It sounds almost similar to digg.com. Publishers submit content to the site, users vote for it.
Did you like it ? Well, yes !! I do not know why, but I liked it and I am spending little more time on it. Why … if you ask that question again, I have no other choice but to think and think and give you some … Continue reading →
Couldn’t wait to post this oneÂ … Straight to the news !
Aishwarya Rai Bachchan now wants to chronicle her biography. And the Bachchan bahu will be helped by none other than her mother and writer Vrinda Rai for the same.
“Aishwarya has been keen on writing a book for a long time. Now that she has streamlined her film projects.
Aishwarya feels it’s the right time for her,” says a close friend of the Bachchan family. On being contacted, Aishwarya’s business manager, Harii Singh says, “Aishwarya writes personal notes on the daily basis.
On Yahoo! Live, you can use your webcam to broadcast your own live video channel. Or just tune in to other peopleâ€™s channels. The video and audio are in real time, and as you watch someoneâ€™s channel or br
oadcast your own, you can interact chat-room style with other viewers. On Yahoo! Live there are limitless channels and anyone can be a star
Is it really useful ? In someway or the other ? I am yet to find an answer. I don’t think Yahoo! will develop something like this putting a lot of energey effort and money without something in mind. I am unsure of what the real use of this feature is, and I am still trying to figure out if there is any chance for this to be popular ( unless it turns dirty .. you know what I mean, there are lots of chances to get this misused. ) Continue reading →
Ssssh !! this is a secret…. Ruhi, is in love !!! with our one and only Gmail !! Read her love story here What’s my role in this love story ? Somehow, me and Ish were messengers for these lovers, trying to meet and talk !! Read more…………. from her comment about our role !!
“Youâ€™ll find this really weird. Till a couple of hours back, I was all pro-Yahoo. But now, Iâ€™m all pro- Gmail. 6+ GB is anyway a lot of space, if you separate all your email accounts, right? And itâ€™s only increasing every single day. There are also other forwarding options available that let you forward your email from one gmail account to anotherâ€¦anyway you must be knowing all this. Iâ€™ve never used all these features, until today. Dinsan will be very happy to know that finally Iâ€™ve converted to Gmail full time. Haha.”
Okay, I agree that I have ads on my site too. But, I hate pop up ads. So, I hate sites which put pop up ads too.Â So the sites are aol.intech2.com and Ibnlive.com
Aol is something that I started visiting quite recently. But tech.com and ibnlive.com, are sites I am visiting daily, for a long time. I love reviews in tech2.com and I am addicted toÂ “being” an interview series in ibnlive.com. But pop up ads make me feel bad … you will go “voww” if you see the amount of ads put on tech2.com these days !!
So, most probably, I will stop visiting them.. or I might think about giving them a second chance, and add those sites to my popup blocked in Firefox .. what you think ? Anyone who love pop up ads uh ?
