Selling porn? Dealing prescription drugs? Nope. All the Idea does is to sell pixels, the tiny dots on the screen that appear when you call up a website. Yes this simple an idea as made a student from UK a millionaire. This is what a local newspaper states.

According to me the idea is paying only about 25% of its success but the main ingredient is the marketing skills to convince his clients to buy pixels by spending some hundreds of dollars on his page.

Why is Nilgiris Mountains called Nilgiris December 31, 2005

Nilgiris Moutains are very beautiful to go to. It is about 290 KMs from Bangalore. The drive to the mountains is very enjoyable and the scenic beauty you get to see en route to these mountains are spell binding.

The whole of Nilgiris mountains have lots of Nilgiri trees also know as Eucalyptus trees. That’s were the name is derived from. I am confused – if the trees got the name form the mountain or mountain got the name form the trees. Either way trees in the mountain are very beautiful. Here are the Pics below to prove it.

Yeh Hai Meri Kahani – Zinda December 30, 2005

I hate Pakistan and anything from Pakistan. This song Yeh Hai Meri Kahani from Bollywood movie Zinda is composed and sung by Strings – A Pakistan Band is an exception. This song is just excellent. I first heard in on B4U music channel and just loved as soon as I heard it. The song features Sanjay Dutt and John Abraham (Actors of Zinda movie) and they too sing few lines in it. The main attraction of this song is the lyrics which pulls you to this song but you still can’t leave out the music and the singers. I would recommend to you either buy this CD or hear it online on http://www.raaga.com. Which ever is the case I am sure you will enjoy the song as much I do.

Grammar mistakes… :-( December 29, 2005

add a comment

My sister is an English pundit and when she visited my site, she pointed out many grammatical mistakes which I might have made. I never thought that it will look bad on my English skills to out side world. But I have realized it and from now on, I will make a conscious effort to make no or very less mistake of such kind.

I still request you to do the following from hence forth

  1. If possible point out my mistakes.
  2. If you can’t point out the mistakes then ignore it.
  3. If you still can’t tolerate my mistakes, please donate a “Learn English grammar in 15 minutes” book

Half mega pixel December 29, 2005

Recently my entire family (Well I think its time to introduce my Family – My Dad – Nitin, My Sister – Mable and My Brother In Law – SSR) had been to Mysore and ooty for a nice little family trip. It was nice little vacation we had and all along we took pics like everyone does. But the only change this time was I was using my New Cannon IS S2 digi camera. Almost at the end of the trip, me and my sister where discussing how much more capacity we have in each others digi cam to take more pics and to my surprise when I checked, the screen showed me that I could still take about 2000 odd more pics and that’s when it hit me that we recorded all the pics all along @ 640×480 resolution. How DUM of me!!!

That’s when I thought – “Why do Cannon give 0.5 or 1 mega pixel resolution option when it is a 5 – 9 megapixel camera”.

Why WHY Why….. Can some one explain. If I wanted a 640×480 pixel pics I would have used my mobile phone or taken a cheap 1 -2 mega pixel camera and would not have invested on a $450 5 mega pixel camera with 12X zoom, right!

Due to this unwanted option I have lost all my wonderful pics of the Nilgiris – Blue Mountains, Bandipur wild life and scenic drive to Ooty to 0.5 pixel. I think I will have to make another visit to these wonderful cool south Indian cites just to takes pics again and this time I will make sure that not even by mistake also I will have a camera set to take pics @ 640×480.

To bad we don’t have a fast Law service or Courts in India, otherwise I would have Sued Cannon for such stupidity.

Hello World!! December 5, 2005

Hello World,
Yes like a typical software developer I have started blogging with a “Hello world!!” This is my 1st ever blog and I want to keep it short and simple.

The blogging bug was influenced by my American friend – Josh Kerr as he also blogs a lot on his blogging site – http://www.jokerr.com when I visited US of A for the 1st time. Then all I need was a blogging site were I can blog and a set of audience to read it. The 1st part of my problem was solved by blogger.com from Google group and the latter by my good American friend – Jonathan Loudin. With all that’s required for blogging I have started. And I hope I keep the pace by blogging as and when required.

Peace out and enjoy maadi!!!

🙂
