Windows Live Writer - Blogging has never been so easy !!

Friday, March 30, 2007 1 comments

Presenting you another kewl product from Microsoft. Windows Live Writer !! Although it claims itself to be another WYSIWYG blog editor, definitely it is far better than all the other editors available. Coz you really get what you see !!!

Everything about this product attracted me. The setup was soo easy, and the first screen I saw was my blog itself. It was like typing in my own blog with all my CSS Styles. I thought Google can only make such really innovative products. Well done Microsoft, I really love this product.

Although its still called beta, its quite full fledged product and completely FREE !! You can easily add links, pictures, tags etc.

The Compatibility List : Support for publishing to Windows Live Spaces, as well as Blogger, LiveJournal,TypePad, WordPress, and many other blog hosting services. I have already testing it with Blogger and seems pretty impressive.

This product is definitely worth downloading and you will love it. Click here to download.

Things missing were - I was not able to upload image directly. So i had to later edit again using blogger editor. Also labels were missing. Hope they fix it fast.

Orkut Polls !!!

Tuesday, March 27, 2007 0 comments

Well its another cool feature that Orkut added yesterday (thats when i saw it..) You can create polls now in Orkut !!!

You can create multiple options, comments and picture for every option and the question too !!! But I wasn't able to figure out why polls were not appearing in some communities

Then i found this note the help section

**We're rolling out polls to some of the smaller communities in orkut first. Please note that it may take a week or two for the polls feature to be available in all communities.

Keep it up Team Orkut....

Two really cool communities in orkut !!!

Saturday, March 24, 2007 0 comments

Their community pictures says it all. Thats what i can say. These two communities "Insults" and "Funny one liners" are one of the best communities for having fun and some really good laugh.

Here are some snippets from INSULTS.

There is a huge thread to insult the above person. There was a good looking guy with a nice french beard. The post below him read :- "seems like there is a fly sitting under ur lower lip"

Here is another one. There is guy who has written
"Everything in the above pic is good. There is nothing to insult. Shes is cute, very hot blah blah....." to a girl above him.

And the same girl has replied below - "sala flirt
is this an insult-the-above-person thread or flirt-with-the-*hot*girl-above-you thread??? you are in the wrong community mister. ok let me start insulting you dude... GO BACK TO SCHOOL AND LEARN TO READ. YOU ARE IN THE INSULTS COMMUNITY, NOT FLIRTS-BY-BIRTH COMMUNITY."

Ha Ha. now thats what i call real insult....

Now for the no.2 candidate.


There is no need to explain about this community. Just some samples will do.

  • "The road to success is always under construction."
  • "Everyone has a photographic memory; some people just don't have film."
  • "i ain't Flintstones .... but i can still make ur bed rock"
  • " Mary had a little lamb...the doctors were surprised!"
  • " No one has ever complained about a parachute not opening......"
  • "I am afraid that one day i'll meet God, he'll sneeze, and i wont know what to say."

  • Here is my favourite - "Attitude is like underwear, you should wear it, but not expose it !!!"

  • This was the weirdest break off line - " i wanna feel what breaking up is!!!!so"
  • "I just can’t love someone who would love someone like me .. So Bye!"

WARNING - I recommend these both for people above 18 only. Coz some thread contain stuff unsuitable for <18. Ha ha !!! Orkut is only for people above 18 i guess !!! but there are thousands of kids running around in orkut...

Both the communities are owned by the same owner - "Moderator Ignoramus" and the profile says she's a female from eritrea. She is very late to approve ppl joining the communities. I wonder why she hasn't added any moderators to help her in maintaining communities of 25,000 members and 3,000 members........

"The Wow Starts Now" - Microsoft is reported to have spent around $500 Million for their Windows Vista "Wow" campaign.

Despite that huge advertising budget, "Wow" failed to make much excitement and now even Apple is poking fun at Vista with a new Mac OS X ad that says "The Wow Started 5 years ago."

SMS Via Internet !!!

Monday, March 05, 2007 0 comments

I had searched a lot for finding if there is a simple solution to send SMS to any mobile in India through Internet. Finally i got two nice solutions.

  1. Go to No Registration! just go and send. but only 3 SMS per day to any mobile in India.
  2. Then download chikka messenger from india times.
    Register and you will be sent a confirm code to your mobile and you are done after entering. It has something like a yahoo messenger where you can store contacts, chat online, send SMS etc. Here also there is a limit like 15 sms per day to any mobile in India.
