26 Birthday Photos

After almost three months of my birthday, I am now uploading the photos :). Part of it was because these snaps were taken by my friend's camera and it took time for me to get hold of them and part of it was because I couldn't take out the time (read as bad at time management) to publish them. Anyway, you can now access them at http://rahul.amaram.name/v/26-bday/ .

And a special note of thanks to my friend Veena for accompanying me throughout the day. My day wouldn't have been so much fun without her :).

Say No To Dowry

A mail I had sent to one of my friends who said that she did not like giving dowry but was helpless as everyone in her caste expected it.

Why I Respect Cockroaches

Ever seen those little pesky things come out at night from nowhere? Do you wish they were not there? Do you feel like getting rid of all of them or smashing them? Well, think again. These are no ordinary insects. They have evolved over millions of years to become one of the hardiest insects on this earth. Here are some interesting facts about cockroaches:

  • Cockroaches can survive without water for about a month and without food for about three months.

Downgrading from Windows Vista Business / Ultimate Edition to Windows XP Professional

The biggest blunder I believe I had done while purchasing my Llenovo Thinkpad T61 last year was to have it shipped with Vista rather than XP. Because Vista sucks big time!! But there was one wise choice which I had made then unknowingly. I paid a few extra bucks and went in for Vista Business rather than Home Edition. This proved to be a boon because Microsoft offers a valid downgrade from Windows Vista Business / Ultimate Edition to Windows XP Professional.

Update

It has been quite sometime since I've written an article with that title. Anyway, I've been really busy for the past few weeks (like I was ever really free :)). One might wonder that I have been doing a hell lot of activities but the truth is that I've been doing just two activities most of the time - 1. Sleeping and 2. Coding. Yeah something seems to have gone wrong with me. I've been sleeping for about 9 hours every day during the past couple of weeks.

Debian or Ubuntu

From: Rahul
To: Sunil Mohan
Subject: Debian or Ubuntu

Some applications which I had backported while using debian etch along with the backporting difficulty level:

alltray (simple)
ekiga (medium - the etch version was giving problems for IP-to-IP direct calling)
ffmpeg / mplayer / avidemux (quite a nightmare ... I was trying to backport the testing version from debian-multimedia.org)
gwenview (simple - etch version had some bugs)
pidgin (difficult - because it was using libnss .. actually i installed libnss from mepis :D)
