Adding to my previous post a good initiative taken by all banks to help investigate on ATM-Thefts.

If you should ever be forced by a robber to withdraw money from an ATM
machine, you can notify the police by entering your Pin # in reverse.

For example if your pin number is 1234 then you would put in 4321. The
ATM recognizes that your pin number is backwards from the ATM card you
placed in the
The machine will still give you the money you requested, but unknown to
the robber, the police will be immediately dispatched to help you.

This information was recently broadcasted on TV and it states that it is
seldom used because people don't know it exists.

Microsoft Partners with Novell for Suse Linux

According to the Wall Street Journal, Microsoft has entered into a partnership with Novell Inc. to offer sales support and technology sharing for Novell's Suse Linux product.

While the deal has yet to be finalized, it represents a surprising new alliance between two warring sides in the operating system world. CEO Steve Ballmer made the announcement at a San Francisco news conference that Linux plays an "important role" in many companies, including Microsoft itself. "We see huge potential upside in these markets."

Novell's Suse Linux is currently the second largest commercial Linux distribution, with first place going to Red Hat. As a result of the announcement, shares in Novell jumped 16% to $6.79.

Financial terms of the agreement were not disclosed, but one of the high points is the expected construction of a joint research facility where the two companies can design and test their software together. Improvements in compatibility between Microsoft Office and OpenOffice are also expected.

Speculation about the long-term outcome of this union has begun already. Frank Artale, vice-president of XenSource, noted that Microsoft's embracing of Suse Linux as opposed to another particular variant could cause a "halo effect" in that the association between the two could make users choose it over another distribution. The open-source community also may have reservations about using a distribution that is "sleeping with the enemy."

As another part of the deal, Microsoft agreed not to file patent infringement charges against Suse users, and Novell has agreed not to sue users of Windows.

Now it's Chennai Turn

IT professional abducted, molested
CHENNAI:In a shocking incident that exposes the absence of security, a young woman working with a software company was allegedly abducted in a share autorickshawand molested by two youth last week.

Worse, the police have almost hit a dead end in the case as the victim, on the advice of her parents, has allegedly refused to lodge a formal complaint and the identity of the accused has not been established.

According to police sources, the 22-year old woman had left on the evening of Wednesday last hired ashare autorickshaw just outside her office in Thoraipakkam to go to herresidence in Velachery.

The victim told us that it was raining that day and the autorickshaw driver had rolled the shutter sheet down. Midway through the journey she peeped outside and found that the autorickshaw was not proceeding on the Velachery route and attempted to raise an alarm.

Immediately, a youth aged around 25 who was seated next to the driver jumped on to the back seat, slapped her and ordered her to keep her mouthshut, a police officer said.

In the meantime, the girl had managed to alert her friends by sending SMS messages through her mobile phone.

As the vehicle neared a college campus in Karapakkam on the outskirts, the two men dragged her out of the vehicle to a bushy area and raped her. Hearing the victim scream, the security guards of the college blew the whistle alerting apatrol vehicle.

Meanwhile, the police and her parents were alerted by the girl's friends and they launched a hunt for her along the Thoraipakkam Road . Finally, thepatrol vehicle personnel spotted her near the college with her dress torn andgot her admitted to a private hospital in Velachery, the officer said.

The driver and his accomplice had fled the scene much earlier after taking away the girl's gold chain and a bag containing an ATM card and cash.

Though the girl did not lodge a formal complaint, the Thoraipakkam police intercepted several share autorickshaws and sought to match the description provided by the girl with that of the driver's.

"We have not achieved a breakthrough so far but we are hoping to convincethe victim to lodge a complaint which is crucial to nail the accused" the officer added

So Girls
Please see through that you leave early and at a reasonable time toprevent any such happenings.

Such incidents have become very frequent, especially to those working in the s/w industry because of the latetimings.

Even guys have been abducted off their belongings. So ALL should take care of their safety and plz pass this on,So that evry1 is aware of it.

Already I have blogged the same type of incident happend in Bangalore. Now it's Chennai.

Guys! Again I am going on a small(?1) Break, could be long one also.

Put a shark in your tank and see how far you can really go!

By challenging the problem you can overcome it. (its all crazy....!! )

The Japanese have always loved fresh fish. But the waters close to Japan have not
held many fish for decades. So to feed the Japanese population,fishing boats got
bigger and went farther than ever.

The farther the fishermen went, the longer it took to bring in the fish.If the
return trip took more than a few days, the fish were not fresh. The Japanese did not
like the taste.

To solve this problem, fishing companies installed freezers on their boats. They
would catch the fish and freeze them at sea. Freezers allowed the boats to go
farther and stay longer. However, the Japanese could taste the difference between
fresh and frozen and they did notlike frozen fish. The frozen fish brought a lower

So fishing companies installed fish tanks. They would catch the fish and stuff them
in the tanks, fin to fin. After a little thrashing around, the fish stopped moving.
They were tired and dull, but alive.

Unfortunately, the Japanese could still taste the difference. Because the fish did
not move for days, they lost their fresh-fish taste. The Japanese preferred the
lively taste of fresh fish, not sluggish fish.

So how did Japanese fishing companies solve this problem? How do they get
fresh-tasting fish to Japan?

To keep the fish tasting fresh, the Japanese fishing companies still put the fish in
the tanks. But now they add a small shark to each tank. The shark eats a few fish,
but most of the fish arrive in a very lively state.

The fish are challenged.

As soon as you reach your goals, such as finding a wonderful mate,starting a
successful company, paying off your debts or whatever, you might lose your passion.
You don't need to work so hard so you relax.

Like the Japanese fish problem, the best solution is simple. It was observed by L.
Ron Hubbard in the early 1950's.

"Man thrives, oddly enough, only in the presence of a challenging environment."

The Benefits of a Challenge

The more intelligent, persistent and competent you are, the more you enjoy a good
problem. If your challenges are the correct size, and if you are steadily conquering
those challenges, you are happy. You think of your challenges and get energized. You
are excited to try new solutions. You have fun. You are alive!

Instead of avoiding challenges, jump into them. Beat the heck out of them. Enjoy the

If your challenges are too large or too numerous, do not give up. Failing makes you
tired. Instead,reorganize. Find more determination,more knowledge,more help.

Don't create success and lie in it. You have resources, skills and abilities to make
a difference. Put a shark in your tank and see how far you can really go!

Blogger, the Originated Story

Pyra Labs is the company who discovered/coined/invented the word Blogger and made the service a big success. That’s why most of our time is being eaten here.

Evan Williams and Meg Hourihan the founder, and the company's first product, also named 'Pyra', was a web application which would combine a project manager, contact manager, and to-do list. In 1999, while still in beta, the rudiments of Pyra were repurposed into an in-house tool which became Blogger. The service was made available to the public in August 1999, when likely fewer than 100 web logs existed. Much of this coding was done by Paul Bausch and Matthew Haughey.

Initially, Blogger was completely free and there was no revenue model. When the company's seed money dried up, the employees continued without pay for weeks or, in some cases, months; but this could not last, and eventually Williams faced a mass walk-out by everyone including co-founder Hourihan. Williams ran the company virtually alone until he was able to secure an investment by Trellix after its founder Dan Bricklin became aware of Pyra's situation. Eventually advertising-supported blogspot and Blogger Pro emerged.

In 2002, Blogger was completely re-written in order to license it to other companies, the first of which was Brazilian mega-corp Globo. I started blogging 2003(introduced by Cogito), deleted and recreated many times due to my inexperience in XML coding.

That is the time where Google started acquiring companies at 2003. As a sweep Google acquired Blogger in 2003 and become familiar to everybody. The people at Pyra Labs at the time of acquisition were Evan Williams, Jason Shellen, Steve Jenson, Rudy Winnacker, Jason Sutter, and Jason Goldman. Still I remember the day when left Blog with tears

In 2004, Evan Williams left Google. In 2006, Jason Goldman left Google.

So guys, hope you enjoyed the history of blogging.

Google on Wireless

Google has opened a wireless Internet umbrella over its hometown in northern California's high-tech Silicon Valley, enabling anyone in the city to connect online for free.

"It worked smashingly," Chris Sacca, Google head of special initiatives, said on Wednesday. "We have really been looking forward to this day. The citizens have embraced it as their network."

Google spent one million dollars creating a network that lets people with wireless-enabled computers, telephones or other devices to link to the Internet nearly anywhere in the city of Mountain View, which covers almost 31 sqkm.

Google affixed WiFi antennae to city-owned lamp posts and was working with residents who have offered their homes as antenna spots in 'dead zones.'

The cost of running the system was "phenomenally cheap" and the network was in keeping with Google's belief in universal access to the Internet and the world's information, according to Sacca.

"One of the main goals of the project was to inspire citizens to realize there is this promise of access and at the same time to inspire entrepreneurs to develop networks," Sacca said.

"What better way to go ahead and put your money where your mouth is than to build a network and show that it works."

The wireless network also provides Google's more than 1,000 employees in the city opportunities to experiment with new technologies and services.

Doctor Vs Mechanic

Doctors are considered as GOD, even mechanics also, when there is a necessasity. But there is a huge difference between both the way they work here is an example story.

A mechanic was removing the cylinder heads from the motor of a car when he spotted the famous heart surgeon in his shop, who was standing off to the side, waiting for the service manager to come to take a look at his car.

The mechanic shouted across the garage,"Hello Doctor! Please
come over here for a minute." The famous surgeon, a bit surprised,
walked over to the mechanic.

The mechanic straightened up, wiped his hands on a rag and asked argumentatively, "So doctor, look at this. I also open hearts, take valves out, grind 'em, put in new parts, and when I finish this will work as a new one. So how come you get the big money, when you and me is doing basically the same work? "

The doctor leaned over and whispered to the mechanic....

Why Employees Leave Organisations?

- Azim Premji, Wipro
Every company faces the problem of people leaving the company for better
pay or profile.

Early this year, Arun, a senior software designer, got an offer from a prestigious international firm to work in its India operations developing specialized software. He was thrilled by the offer.

He had heard a lot about the CEO. The salary was great. The company had all the right systems in place employee-friendly human resources (HR) policies, a spanking new office,and the very best technology,even a canteen that served superb food.

Twice Arun was sent abroad for training. "My learning curve is the sharpest it's ever been," he said soon after he joined. Last week, less than eight months after he joined, Arun walked out of the job.

Why did this talented employee leave ? Arun quit for the same reason that drives many good people away. The answer lies in one of the largest studies undertaken by the Gallup organization. The study surveyed over a million employees and 80,000
managers and was published in a book called "First Break All The Rules". It came up with this surprising finding:
If you're losing good people, look to their immediate boss.Immediate boss is the reason people stay and thrive in an organization. And he 's the reason why people leave. When people leave they take knowledge,experience and contacts with them, straight to the competition.

"People leave managers not companies," write the authors Marcus Buckingham and Curt Coffman. Mostly manager drives people away? HR experts say that of all the abuses, employees find humiliation the most intolerable. The first time, an employee may not leave,but a thought has been planted. The second time, that thought gets strengthened. The third time, he looks for another job.
When people cannot retort openly in anger, they do so by passive aggression. By digging their heels in and slowing down. By doing only what they are told to do and no more. By omitting to give the boss crucial information. Dev says: "If you work for a jerk, you basically want to get him into trouble. You don 't have your heart and soul in the job."

Different managers can stress out employees in different ways - by being too controlling, too suspicious,too pushy, too critical, but they forget that workers are not fixed assets, they are free agents . When this goes on too long, an employee will quit - often over a trivial issue. Talented men leave. Dead wood does'nt.

" Jack Welch of GE once said. A company's value lies "between the ears of its employees".

July 7: One Year On

At the remembrance of July-7-2005 Bomb blast violence in a Double decker Bus
(Now no more double decker busses in London).

The first multi-faith service in the long history of London's Westminster Abbey is to be held later today to mark the first anniversary of the July 7 suicide bomb attacks on the British capital.

A shocking news is that a video message from July 7 suicide bomber Shehzad Tanweer has been broadcast on Arab satellite channel al-Jazeera on the eve of the first anniversary of the atrocity.

// The news says "Tanweer, speaking with a Yorkshire accent, is seen in the video wearing a Muslim headscarf and jabbing his finger at the camera.

In an apparent message to the British Government, Tanweer vows that the attacks will continue until troops are pulled out of Iraq and Afghanistan and "you stop your support" for America and Israel.

He says: "What have you witnessed now is only the beginning of a string of attacks that will continue and become stronger until you pull your forces out of Afghanistan and Iraq and until you stop your financial and military support to America and Israel."

Tanweer then refers to the non-Muslims of Britain and says that because they voted for a government which "continues to oppress our mothers, children, brothers and sisters in Palestine, Afghanistan, Iraq and Chechnya", then they deserve such actions.

The video also features a statement from Ayman al Zawahri, al-Qaeda's second in command, again suggesting a strong link between the bombers and Osama bin Laden's terror network.

Scotland Yard is "aware" of Shehzad Tanweer's suicide video and said the timing of its release "can only cause maximum hurt and distress" to the bereaved families.

Assistant Commissioner Andy Hayman, head of Specialist Operations, said today: "We are aware of the tape and this will form part of our investigation.

"There can be no doubt that the release of the video at this time can only cause maximum hurt and distress to the families and friends of those who died on 7/7 and the hundreds of people who were injured in the terrorist attacks.

"We are sure that the overwhelming majority of all communities are united in condemning any attempt to justify last year's terrorist attacks in London.

"We would like to reassure the public that police are doing all they can to ensure their safety.

"It is important that people continue to go about their daily lives as normal, to do otherwise would mean the terrorist has won."

The only other video testament from any of the four bombers to emerge before today had been from ringleader Mohammad Sidique Khan.

Tanweer is considered by investigators to have been his right-hand man.

Speculation about the existence of a video testament from Tanweer stretched as far back to last September, when Khan's video was first broadcast.

Detectives believe Khan's video could well have been filmed abroad, possibly during his trips to Pakistan, and reports last year suggested Tanweer could have filmed a message at around the same time.

The video is likely to be subject to intensive visual scrutiny and painstaking forensic analysis in the hope it could yield vital clues.

However, the timing of its release is likely to anger relatives of the victims and survivors, still struggling to come to terms with the trauma of the blasts.

Dabbawala’s just a click away now

The ubiquitous Dabbawala who forms an integral part of Mumbai’s landscape is morphing into a techno savvy businessman, using modern mediums such as mobiles and the internet to market the hugely successful business.
“We have recently launched SMS services for our customers where they can avail our service by sending us a text message. This step was taken after our website received a very good response and people wanted us to be more accessible,” Raghunath Megde president of the Dabbawala union said.

“We have also started using computers to manage records of our customers. Our website enables our customers to place their orders online. On the launch of our SMS sevice, we got 15 new orders on the first day itself,” Manish Tripathi, software consultant, and a part of the project, said.

When asked whether the Dabbawalas were heading towards adopting a more technological frame of business, Medge said “Our logistics system, where we deliver dabbas all over Mumbai, still functions without any technological help, but we feel that we have to use technology to market our business and reach as many people as possible.”

The Dabbawalas’ accurate and precise system of delivering hot home-cooked meals to more than 2 lakh office goers in Mumbai has drawn praise from all over the world, including business schools who want to study their system. Even Prince Charles made it a point to invite them to his second wedding after meeting them in the city in ‘03 during a visit.

Time to Logout

Another infotech firm has decided to call it quits. Bangalore’s rising costs have pushed Texas-based Pervasive Software to shut down its 18-month-old development centre in the city.
This move by the data infrastructure software company, which had over 50 people here, comes within weeks of Apple Computer’s decision to exit Bangalore. Apple’s move too was said to have been guided by cost considerations. Besides, Powergen had last week pulled out of India blaming poor quality of services for its UK customers.

“We are consolidating technical operations for our integration productline in Austin and closing our Bangalore-based subsidiary this month, while still maintaining an India presence through our long-time development partner, Aztec Software,” said Pervasive president and CEO John Farr.

Pervasive — which provides data infrastructure software — had commenced operations in Bangalore when it acquired another Austin-based company Datajunction, which specialised in data integration products.

“The potential cost savings of an off-shore development operation can be mathematically compelling. However, we have found that the complexity of managing such an operation and the increasing costs of labour, employee turnover, training, and facilities in a hot market such as Bangalore make it challenging to ultimately realise those savings,” Farr added.

The company has placed an local manager, Jaisimha Muthegere, as the director of its India software operations. Muthegere had earlier announced that Pervasive would establish a world-class R&D centre in India by recruiting top-level engineers.

He had also said that the centre would focus on product development, including core R&D work, and not just maintenance, to address customer and market needs.

Even in September 2005, the company had reiterated its commitment to India and had announced big expansion plans.

When contacted, Aztecsoft (previously Aztec Software) said this strategic move to shift its captive development centre has no bearing on its long-standing relationship with Pervasive. “Aztecsoft has a six-year-long relationship with Pervasive Software. Over the years, we have developed several of their products and we continue to do so,” an Aztecsoft spokesperson said.

Watching TV

University in New Mexico shows that compulsive TV viewing can leave people feeling lonely and depressed. This is really true when I am in Noida felt the same, depressed in evening. It found that 12% of TV viewing addicts who watch upto 28-40 hrs per week (for me it is double). Found they were unhappy watching the shows but unable to stop themselves.
That is the reason I bought Satellte Radio to avoid watching TV. I was frustrated once started watching TV on a weekend for 2 days continuously ended with the whole weekdays depressed. I don’t think PEPSI TV advertisement is good for health.

Guys, aware the serials are killing the time even NGC, NDTV, CNBC and Animal Planet. Plug out your mind to reading or listening.

Leading Outsourcing Vendors

Forrester evaluated leading outsourcing vendors on their ability to implement IT sourcing deal transformation management across 55 criteria and found that EDS is the clear winner for its current ability to launch sourcing deals and transform customer environments. IBM has strong capabilities and leads with strategy for future supremacy. Because of its balance between current implementation strength and well-articulated future strategy, CSC is the overall leader and is challenging for supremacy in both current offering and strategy (although rumors of acquisition continue to surround the respected firm). Despite companywide troubles with revenue and margin, Capgemini’s current delivery ability helped it hang onto a leadership position. CGI Group is the smallest vendor that we evaluated, but it emerged as a Strong Performer largely because of its ability to satisfy customers. EMEA-based
Atos Origin showed solid reference customer scores but still needs to mature its IT sourcing deal transformation management capability. This report includes an interactive vendor comparison tool that provides detailed service evaluations and customizable rankings.

Moment that I love..

Lying in the bed alone and listening to the rain outside,
Thinking about the person you love,
Taking lonely, long drive on a calm road,
Finding some money in your old jeans just when you needed,
Giggling naughtily,
Holding hands with your friend,
Getting a hug from someone you love,
Moment your eyes filled with tears after a big laugh,
The moment you get wed to your loved one,
The moment you felt the softness of your baby’s fingers.

Oracle Bid for Redhat

Tech Sector shopaholic Larry Ellison, founder of Oracle, seems to be looking for his next fix. This in itself is not unusual, but the fact that he is taking Oracle ‘beyond the brochure’ by considering the purchase of an operating system vendor is cause for reflection. Oracle actually already has a majority stake in a little operation called Miracle Linux. However the database vendor may seek revenge on Linux distributor (distro – in Silicon Valley parlance) Red Hat for winning their battle to acquire open source middleware vendor JBoss. By launching a hostile bid for Red Hat, Oracle would fill the missing pieces needed for the software giant to offer a complete software solution. This will put rivals such as Sap and Microsoft on the back foot. A natural extension of this strategy would be to add hardware to the portfolio. So Sun (for servers) and Dell (for PCs) might consider beefing up their defences.

CSC- The Best

It was 22-April 2004, with smile on face, tears in heart I left CSC-Noida with lot of best wishes. I worked in 5 companies in my work experience and I found CSC is best in work culture and policies. I heard from lot of X-Csc'ians saying that CSC is best ever. It's been 2 years out of CSC though, my memories are still swirling around Sector-62. CSC was my dream company before joining and so now. Thanks a lot to CSC ever and ever. I dunno whether I will go back to CSC or not, however If I get a chance to work with, I am always happy to be and expecting the same at anytime.

For this Bharuch(Gujarat) village which swears by the game, everyone was glued to their TV sets except for the boy's family and the street where he lives. For them, watching TV is “bad influence.” So as the hows and whens of his first wicket were discussed passionately, both his sisters were in school, his mother, who has never watched her son bowl, kept a roza for his success. His father, a small-time cotton farmer, reluctantly braved the crowd of reporters. He is a textbook success story. From the cotton fields and humble origins to the national team, he is now seen as an inspiration for every farmer’s son in this village to hang onto impossible dreams.

His mother says she is now contemplating buying a TV set. So far, the family didn’t get one as TV viewing is considered a “bad influence” in this religious but not very conservative household. “(We hope to get a TV now) so that we see him play and nothing else,” said the mother, who remembers his 101 in a village game some years ago.

The village has all signs of prosperity, well-laid concrete roads, a playground, mosques, but it is again his family which stands out. The father confesses that the family has seen worse days and occasionally breaks down in disbelief that the once barefoot, lanky son of a farmer, is now actually playing with the cricket greats. Since his success, the only addition in the home is a wooden cabinet displaying his trophies.

Being a farmer's son he is my role model.

Vote Or Get Voted Out

What is the Government doing for us? Why are tax-paying citizens like us, getting taxed further? These thoughts might have crossed my mind many-a-times. We criticize the fall in standards of governance and public life. But we fail to realize that a few simple actions from our part can actually help turn things around.It’s now the time for educated people, like us to actively participate and elect our own representatives.

For a start, let’s begin by exercising our grey cells a little and attempt the quiz, “Get Voting” right now. It’s time to change now…for the better.

Forwarded Mail-1

A father passing by his teenage daughter's bedroom was astonished to see the bed was nicely made and everything was neat and tidy. Then he saw an envelope propped up prominently on the centre of the pillow. It was addressed "Dad". With the worst premonition, he opened the envelope and read the letter with trembling hands:-

Dear Dad,

It is with great regret and sorrow that I'm writing you, but I'm leaving home. I had to elope with my new boyfriend Randy because I wanted to avoid a scene with Mom and you. I've been finding real passion with Randy and he is so nice to me. I know when you meet him you'll like him too - even with all his piercing, tattoos, and motorcycle clothes. But it's not only the passion Dad, I'm pregnant and Randy said that he wants me to have the kid and that we can be very happy together. Even though
Randy is much older than me (anyway, 42 isn't so old these days is it?), and has no money, really these things shouldn't stand in the way of our relationship, don't you agree?

Randy has a great CD collection; he already owns a trailer in the woods and has a stack of firewood for the whole winter. It's true he has other girlfriends as well but I know he'll be faithful to me in his own way. He wants to have many more children with me and that's now one of my dreams too.

Randy t aught me that marijuana doesn't really hurt anyone and he'll be growing it for us and we'll trade it with our friends for all the cocaine and ecstasy we want. In the meantime, we'll pray that science will find a cure for AIDS so Randy can get better; he sure deserves it!!
Don't worry Dad, I'm 15 years old now and I know how to take care of myself. Someday I'm sure we'll be back to visit so you can get to know your grandchildren.

Your loving daughter,

At the bottom of the page were the letters "PTO". Hands still trembling, her father turned the sheet, and read:

PS: Dad, none of the above is true. I'm over at the neighbour's house. I just wanted to remind you that there are worse things in life than my report card that's in my desk centre drawer. Please sign it and call when it is safe for me to come home. I love you!

Moblog is a blend of the words mobile and weblog. A mobile weblog, or moblog, consists of content posted to the Internet from a mobile or portable device, such as a cellular phone or PDA. Moblogs generally involve technology which allows publishing from a mobile device.

Much of the earliest development of moblogs occurred in Japan, among the first countries in the world where camera phones (portable phones with built-in cameras) were widely commercially available.

I swear that it will take some time to moblog(atleast for me also I am not sure that Indian Mobile Service Providers has this facility)

Next Blog generation.

Basic Instinct-2

There are lot more impressed other than hot scenes in Basic Instinct-1(rel:1992), Style of Sharon's triger the cigerrette, the helicopter view of carved lush green sea shore mountain road, gutts of sharon, the beutiful villa next to sea. Still those iceberg murders are coming to the eyes. Basic Instinct-2 was released couple of days before. David is the hero instead of M.Douglous. Sharon become very old, able to recognise from her TV report. So what, at any how I am going to watch the movie. How about you?

10 points to get a job

Every working will have this, this is the key area to get the job and able to negotiate. Sometimes it screw your search. do you what I am writing about? yes it is resume. I found few points through web page which is a Ctrl-C&V

1. Put your experience first. It counts for far more than your educational background. If you don't have professional experience, write about the projects that you've done on your own time. Be detailed, and be specific. And if you have no professional experience, and you haven't done any projects on your own, dammit, do some. Show a little initiative.

2. Include contact information. Put your name, your address, your phone number, your email address, your fax number, your brother's fax number, and the name of the grocery store where you shop. Give them a way to get in touch with you. You would be amazed, truly AMAZED at how many resumes I have seen over the years that did not have anything but a name. No address, no phone number, nothing.

3. About your name... Well, even though I just told you to put it on your resume, exercise some common sense if you have one of those wacky names. For example, if your name is "Dick Hare," you really ought to think about going by "Richard."

4. Don't use clip art pictures of little dancing elves on your resume. The use of pictures of flying monkeys is also generally frowned upon.

5. Don't use stupid fonts. I hate those damn "ye merrie olde england" fonts. Trust me, everyone who reviews resumes all day long hates screwy fonts.

6. Don't add things to your resume unnecessarily. For example, if you were creating a list of some sort, it would be a bad idea to add something goofy just so that you had a list of ten things instead of a list of nine. I would never do that. Really. I swear.

7. Don't put your naked picture on your resume. That is, don't do it unless you are a gorgeous, nubile adult female. And even then, you have to be careful about not misusing it. In fact, it's really difficult to gauge when this is appropriate. I'm probably the only person who knows how to tell. Therefore, the only way to really know whether or not your naked picture should be on the resume is to send it to me, and I'll, uh, let you know. Yeah, that's what I'll do. I'll, uh, review it.

8. Proofread, poofread, poofread. Be sure to catch and correct all spelling errors, grammatical weaknesses, unusual punctuation, and inconsistent capitalization. Proofread it numerous times. And yes, I know that "proofread" is misspelled twice in this paragraph. It's a joke. I'm a funny little bastard.

9. Don't use those accent mark thingies. Sure, I know that the word "resume" is supposed to have one of those little marks over the final "e," but that is a pain in the ass, and not only do I not want to put it there myself, I kinda resent the fact that anyone else would put it there.

10. Don't say that you are looking for "an easy job which won't require bathing."
Thanks :

Import Apple to India

"This cannot be true, can it? Apple wouldn't be this stupid"
"What? I spent $300+ for Apple CareT and they do this?"
"I know it is about saving money, but BAD MOVE Apple! Let's hope you do a better job in picking personnel than the other companies I've deal with"
"Awesome! No I can talk to " John in India who just got done watching Seinfield episodes to learn how to be more American"
These are all the comments found in Newspaper and blogs when Apple decides to outsource their support to India. Steve is also planned to Visit India-bangalore in this mid of the month. So guys be ready whoever having iPod will get support in Indian-Ameroco Accent later you talk with them in Hindi. I have a Compaq Laptop and faced a problem in Hard disk. So I called 1-800-,... toll free number. I know at any cost the call will be landed in India, (I worked in backbone team for a Compaq-HP Call center couple of years before). The guy started with opening script that "Thank you for calling Compaq, a part of HP. My Name is Jerome, how may I assist you" with Americo-Indian Accent. I started talking in Tamil that I know about it is landed in a Chennai based call center. First he resists and annoyed when I started in Tamil. Later he started speaking in Tamil. So they pretend to be American guy as there is need for it. It might happen for Apple also.

It was a amazing weekend, done nothing other than watching TV and reading news paper. Few news are really surprising. One is that an IIM-B guy has a got a offer from Barclays Capital, Uk and offered a record breaking salary of $1,93,000 pa. Prior to this offer the highest paid was $1,84,000/-. Being an economic country guy It is a wonder for me and no wonder all IIMians will get abroad offer at one fine day.

Other was the great performance by South African Cricketers. When Australia scored 434-4, I just changed the channel and started watching movies and songs. it happend to go back to the channel when got bored with Songs and movies. Started jumping after looking at the score. they chased the huge runs ever before and snatched the Series. At the same time, on friday 4th match was also good and Aussies put lot of efforts to rule the series. SA deserves this victory and remains the World Cup Semi-final match who lost the match in only one Simple run. Though Anil Kumble's hit the Headlines, it was made nothing special as Murali at 600+ and my favourite Shane on 649. All the Best kumble chase the count, it is not a big deal for you. Look at the huge score ever made in Cricket ODI and chased to victory.

College Days

Remembering my Class mates, after few years.
My eyes were filled with tears,
Everyone now is busy a lot,
No One escaped destiny's plot.

Project reviews to campus interviews,
Nicknames to last bench games,
Cultural rehearsaks to love proposals,
Shot tern crashes/crushes to class room blushes.

Everything is fresh in our mind,
Wish life could Just rewind,
Let's laugh, play and rejoice,
Once again become college guys.

Chatting and laughing, we all were elation(some tears and bleedy too),
Till the painfull moment of separation,
When it was time to part,
We returned with a heavy heart.

Today life is full of commitments,
And too many worries,
But those cherished moments,
Will live forever in our Memories.

Google Page Creator

Google has launched a new product - Google Page Creator, a free, easy, browser-based tool for creating attractive web pages.

Google maintains that Google Page Creator has been designed with ease-of-use in mind. Its interface enables users to edit and create pages just as they appear online, without knowledge of HTML or other computer programming languages. Combined with a simple one-step publishing process, users can create attractive, functional web pages in minutes - hosted by Google for free.

Google Page Creator is a web-based tool - that means no download is necessary. Users need only visit http//, and sign in using their Gmail account to begin creating and publishing their own web pages.

Google Page Creator will be available on Google Labs, but the search giant has decided to limit the number of page sign-ups in order to provide users with an optimal publishing experience. The company holds that due to extraordinary demand, it recently reached that limit so they've temporarily paused additional sign-ups.

Users may check the Google Page Creator website regularly for updates or submit their email address to a wait list, and Google will contact them when they have the capacity to support additional users.

One Night @ the Call Center

Before giving a review on this book let you know how I read Chetan Bagath's 1st boot FIVE POINT SOME ONE. I bought this book couple of books before and read on January 06. I started reading 5.someone, before my train started. I was very serious for some time and started laughing loudly, most of the people in the place where looking strangely, though I cant avoid my laugh. It put me into all feelings, at the end tears about to roll my eyes. So I liked that book and my journey. I completed 5.Someone in one journey and closed it before reaching my home.

So the hype to 2 heavy as I seen the book in the roadside shop with Junker. I preferred Junker to buy 5.Someone and I bought One Night @ the Call Center. As I urged to read the book at the same night to feel as it is. The nearly 300 page book is extremely racy and also engaging. It is all the more interesting because the novel is centered on the contemporary world of India’s new generation. Book started well with Chetan's style. After the introduction, story started felt like in a call center (I worked in Call center for 11 months in hectic shifts, so I know the pain)

I was keen on knowing what Chetan will say in this book about an only one night and what will be interested in one night. Again very few characters in this story, will some simulation and feelings. Delhi’s (esp.: gurgaon) culture is away from Indian culture; this book opened the all pages of Call Center Culture in Delhi (Welcome to Western Culture, where is very fast adopted). Having 2 or more girl friends (vice versa for girls) loosing verginity.hhaaaaa we are in India?

The novel starts with the meeting of Chetan Bhagat and a young lady in a train and she tells him the story of a night at the call center in Delhi on the condition that it would be his next book. The story is viewed through Shyam, a call center agent and a tame team leader and it revolves on him, his colleagues Varun, Esha, Radhika, his girl friend Priyanka and an aged Military Uncle. Book is good, at the same time I am not convinced in few areas. Chetan you would not have accepted with Swirly Curly.

You know what is one line where Chetan got stuck
"God given a call to us in that night"

The first-ever Fab (factory fabrication model) City, once set up, will act as a catalyst that would propel India onto the global chip manufacture map. In November, SemIndia announced the setting up of India's first-ever fab, an assembly-test-mark-pack (ATMP) plant that would offer services to manufacturers of integrated circuits.

Announcing this on Thursday at the two-day Indian Semiconductor Association (ISA) business conference here, Union IT minister Dayanidhi Maran said SemIndia, an NRI consortium working with the Indian government, has zeroed in on Hyderabad.

"Karnataka, Andhra Pradesh and Tamil Nadu were solid contenders but AP won SemIndia over," Maran said. Asked why Karnataka lost out despite it being a forerunner, Maran threw up his hands, laughing: "Don't ask me. Ask the SemIndia people; they had the final say."

More seriously, he said Karnataka's response was "too slow" and Tamil Nadu's "lukewarm". "Andhra Pradesh moved faster, provided 1,200-acre land, water, subsidised electricity, and lined up investors who would bring in $1 billion in equity to set up the facility."

Chipmaker AMD is an active participant in the venture and this fab would augment its regional assembly and test requirements.Interestingly, Intel is also in talks with India on a similar project.

It is a welcome News to Gowda's Family Ruling style. Similar JJ style of loosing project to TN.

Race on 10K

I remember in my earlier earning time, I was having a ambition to get my salary in 5 digits, After 9/11, I thought of going back to my farm and do agriculture and start milk bizness with altered Willys Jeep. Some how my previous company managed to retain me and releaved when I got a good opening. Similar kind of scenario for India Stock market today.

When Sachin and Shewag opened for India first ODI with Pakis, the Sensex has hit an all time high of 10,031 with a gain of 52 points. It is a tragedy that none of the public knows about this and they were sunk in TV for match. Anyway Monday was not good for Indian cricket fans rather Investers in India.

While I hear experts showing apprehension about another stock market scam, the finance minister and Sebi keep assuring us of fair play. Time will only tell if it's for real or this 10K mark is just an illusion. What is more alarming is the speed at which sensex is scaling newer heights. The way things are moving, I guess soon the sensex will cross 20K barrier.

Kama Sutra

It is not a Porn related blog, it is a Virus which is going to affect your Computer tommorrow(Feb-3-06)

Details: Sex sells and the new internet worm (Nyxem-E) nick-named the "Kama Sutra worm" because it spreads under the guise of pornographic content, has leap-frogged lesser viruses reaching top-spot on world virus charts.

Nyxem-E aka Kama Sutra is a mass-mailing worm which attempts to disable security-related and file-sharing software and destroys files of certain types. When run on a Windows PC, the worm copies itself to shared network locations, and sends itself to e-mail addresses found on the target computer. Nyxem-E, according to F-Secure, is programmed to disable anti-virus and firewall software, and delete certain files including Office documents, on the third day of every month.

The Kama Sutra worm arrives as an e-mail attachment, with different subject lines including "School girl fantasies gone bad," "The Best Videoclip Ever," "A Great Video," "give me a kiss," "Fwd: Photo," "Fw: Sexy," "You Must View This Videoclip!" "Miss Lebanon 2006," etc. The text differs; it may include references to the Kama Sutra - the ancient Sanskrit book on sex and related matters.

Who is He?

He was short. He was sharp. He was the brightest boy in his class. His seniors would ask him to solve their difficulties in Science. He could have go unnoticed in the crowd, but once you asked him a question related to Physics or Maths, there was a spark in his eyes. He could grasp theories of Science faster than the speed of light.

He came from a poor but educated family. His father was a high-school teacher and an avid reader of english literature. He, like all the boys in the class was trying to get admission into some engineering college. The brighter ones wanted to study in he Indian Institutes of Technology, or the IIT's. There was an entrance test for IIT.This boy, along with his friends applied to appear for the test. They did not have any special books or coaching. All these IIT aspirants would sit below the shade of a stone mantap close to Chamundi hills in the sleepy town of Mysore. He was a guide for others. While the others struggled to solve problems in the question paper, he would smile shyly and solve them in no time. He sat below a tree and dreamt of studying at IIT.He was then only sixteen years old.

D-Day came.He came to Bangalore, stayed with some relatives and appeared for the entrance test. He did very well but would only say "OK" when asked. It was the opposite when it came to food...."OK" implied bad, "good" implied ok, and "very good" implied good!! His principle was never to hurt anyone.

The IIT entrance resutls came. He had passed with flying colors and the hightest rank. He was thrilled! He went to his father who was reading a newspaper.

"Anna, I have passed the exam"

"Well done, My Boy".

"I want to join IIT".

His father stopped reading the paper. He lifted his head, Looked at the boy and said with a heavy voice "You know our financial position, and I cannot afford your expenses at IIT. You can stay in Mysore and learn as much as you want".His father was sad that he had to tell the bitter truth, but it could not be helped.

The teenager was dissappointed. He was so near to fulfilling his fondest dream , yet so far.His heart sank in sorrow.

He did not reply. He never shared his unhappines with anyone. He was an introvert by nature. His heart was bleeding but he did not get angry with anyone.

The day came, his classmates were leaving for Madras(today called Chennai).They were leaving from Mysore to Chennai. They had shared good years at school and he went to wish them good luck for their future. At the station his friends were already there. They were excited and discussing their new hostels, new courses etc. So he stood there silently. One of his friends noticed and said "You should have made it"

He did not reply. He just wished them. He stood there even after he could no longer see the train or the waving hands. It was June 1962 in Mysore city. Yet he stood there motionless.

He said to himself, without anger or jealously, "All students from the IIT's study well and do big things in life. But it is not the institution, ultimately it is you and you alone who can change your life by hard work".

Who is HE?????

Not for Sale

What stops Infosys or TCS from bidding for CSC and ACS, asks a columnist in an article in an Indian newspaper, as the two North American vendors are now on sale?

So far, Indians have not relied too much on inorganic growth path. Of late, however, most of them have started acquiring companies onshore, though on a smaller scale.

With private equity firms pitching in to tie up, is it finally time for Indian companies to go big time?

Not for Sale

Affiliated Computer Services has issued an official statement that it is not selling out. It says that "recent unsolicited discussions with a group of private-equity investors regarding a possible sale of the company have ended."

The company says it has been considering alternatives to enhance shareholder value, but has ruled out a sale of the company.

Times Now & TV18

I remember those days when I was in Delhi; TOI contains lot of HOT news in the newspaper itself with a paper with local news (eg: Delhi Times), which was more interesting than the Main Paper. Junker & Cogito have mentioned about this paper already.

India Times (Times of India) has started their own Channel in India with the help of Reuters named as TIMES NOW. Announcement says that this channel is going to be a News Channel. Slogan of this Channel is FEEL THE NEWS. We already felt the news in Paper and enjoyed cracking jokes on it. Anyway, we welcome the Idea of TOI for getting the help of Reuters to Compete with CNN.

IBN Live is apparently a news channel from TV18 and CNN. Rajdeep Sardesai, The Big Fight guy left NDTV and leading this channel. From their site, IBN seems to be a pro-blog channel as they are calling for Citizen Journalists and an exclusive blog microsite from the journalists.

Nice to know, the TV media is going the blog way for GLOBAL News and let our people will come out of watching tearful Serials and bull shit movies/songs.

Welcome TOI & TV18 to the biggest Way and let join hands for Congratulate them.

Got this forwarded Joke. Enjoy!

Hypothetical situation where 20 executives board an airplane and are
told that the flight that they are about to take is the first-ever to
feature pilotless technology: It is an uncrewed aircraft. Each one of
the CEOs is then told, privately, that their company's software is
running the aircraft's automatic pilot system. Nineteen of the CEOs
promptly leave the aircraft, each offering a different type of xcuse.

One CEO alone remains on board the jet, seeming very calm indeed.Asked
why he is so confident in this first uncrewed flight, he replies: "If
it's the same software that runs my company's IT systems, this plane
won't even take off."

This is called Confidence!

Spam - Unbelievable

Yesterday I got a mail from Cernar for some product promotion. He just referred the group name, as I am one of the member of the group I got the mail. Later When I am trying to sign for the product by providing my mail address, prompted for my mail address (options are Yahoomail, Hotmail, Gmail and....). At that I have given my yahoo account.

Next question is that to provide my Yahoo Password. I was bit surprised that How a spam mails will use my Yahoo creditials, as it has to go through a Authentication in Yahoo. Anyway I provided my password, next step was really shocking, after getting my credentials the web shown the total address in my address List.

I am bit confused after this how they are accessing Yahoo address from external sources.. if it is happening to Yahoo also for Hotmail. Very smart and professional.

So guys beware! Dont provide any password for any spam tools
