Got my Voice back…

January 25, 2010 3 comments

Well, this is almost true. Even though I cannot sing, but I sure can croak…

All this was made possible on 01/22 when Google released a Chrome Extension for Google Voice…

After I installed this extension on my browser, I can make calls from my browser(works on MAC & PC). This is so cooooooooooooooool.

In your face AT&T for blocking me from using GVoice (as its commonly called) over your crappy 3G network.

From now, I sure can get more out of my Google Voice account, which up till now just served as my VoiceMail box.

Go Google!!! Go Colts!!!😉

Confuse/Confusion/Confused…

January 11, 2010 2 comments

These words were/are a part of me from the day I started thinking. I also, do a good job at confusing people who come to me for some guidance (yea, can you ppl believe it?? Ppl come to me for guidance…🙂 ).

I vaguely remember the first time I was out with my parents to buy a new clothes for my b’day & I couldn’t decide what to pick, thankfully my parents made that decision for me. There were several b’days after that & the confusion carried over.

Then came college life, where I was confused about courses I should take, I didn’t have many options but was still confused.

In college I was confused over “Which Sport?” should I play in my college, because I was good at most games (that’s true).

Then came Degree College, where I was confused over which Majors to choose from.

Then came job, where I was not given any options. So, no confusion there.

There were many other confusions in my life & I did make some choices, most of them were impulsive ones, while others were compulsive.

Now, I have this one decision to make, this is going to be Big One & you bet am confused as hell.

Watch this space for more updates…

P.S.: Am not getting married.

I Publicize

October 13, 2009 2 comments
This post is yet another dedication to the wonderful work done by WordPress Team.
Publicize – is just a notification that is sent out to an site about an update, some thing like Push thing & not a Pull.
This is one feature every(famous) blogger wanted (until they heard of it).
It faster than our beloved RSS Feed, which depends on the Feed Reader to pull the details. So, if you are a famous blogger & have a huge reader base, you got to use this.
Till recently WP supported only one site where you could Publicize your updates (I didn’t care about that site much), it was Yahoo!Updates (do ppl still use that!!!). But now,
they added support for Twitter… yes, you all micro blogger!!! Now whenever you publish your blog, WP will push a tweet altering all your followers about it.
Am very excited about this functionality. Hope to see more useful stuff from these guys

BACK

October 8, 2009 1 comment

This has been a long break for me, almost 8 months. I never thought that I would be back, but Guess What? Am Back. Not planning on a serious comeback, whenever I find an interesting topic to blog about, I’ll just post a link to that site🙂

Also, there is one more thing special about this post. Am posting it through my email. Cool… isn’t it? WordPress, always has something up its sleeve.

I clearly remember when I started blogging, I used to own a blog at blogger.com & I was a power-user there. I would always mess around with my site template, keep adding stuff to it, etc,… One fine day, my office firewall started blocking blogger, I was screwed & that was the end of life for me. I had never imagined a life with blogging (lol) & I was so used to Blogger, that even the slightest thought of switching to another site made me uncomfortable.

One of my friend(HP) advised me to check out WordPress. It was love at first sight for me. Something was so right about this blogging site, that I decided to ditch blogger & move over to WordPress for good. WordPress also let me move all my old Blogger posts to their account, that was like cherry on top of the cake. I have never looked back since. Even though I can no longer screw my site’s templates & customize it to my will(I won’t stop cribbing about it). I can choose a theme for my site from the 100 options available, I can add widgets (huge collection of widgets) to my site. The new DashBoard for WordPress has stunning UI (User Interface… duh!), everything is so organized that you will never get lost. I love this one thing on my Dashboard, whenenver I look at it, it makes me smile. It’s the Welcome Message that WordPress has, it goes “Howdy, Kurt”, it’s a small thing but I guess it’s their way of saying, “Relax, no pressure, enjoy your stay here & we won’t kick you out if you don’t submit a post in the next 10 mins”…🙂

All in all a great Blogging site, with many useful features including Blog Stats, Polls, Storage Options, etc…
There would be many other blogs with same or enhanced features, but I am here to stay.
Hail WordPress !!!

That’s about it, hope to see this get published, using their new email feature, to know more about that, click here

But it snowed…

December 17, 2008 1 comment

This ain’t a new song by Parikrama.
But today it snowed here & it was the first time in my life that i saw snow fall.

I was ecstatic at the phenomena, had never seen anything like this in my entire life.
It painted everything in white, covered everything under its blanket.
hoooooooooo… woooooooowwww.. 

I know a lot of people hate snow, but i dont understand why do they hate it so much.😀
This is one of the happiest day of my stay her.

Looking forward to more snow clad days in the near future & then i’ll come back & write how much i hate it🙂

hooooooo…. It Snowed…
Cooooolll
