Convert Your Windows XP/Vista ordinary taskbar into Windows 7 Superbar and Get AeroPeek in Windows XP & Vista
on 28/06/2009 - like it?

I’ve been trying out Windows 7 RC on my personal laptop for about 2 weeks now – and I’ve been very impressed with Windows 7 (I’ll leave my Windows 7 impressions for another blogpost). One of the best liked features about Windows 7, for me is AeroPeek. Essentially AeroPeek groups all similar Windows into one, and as you hover your mouse over it, It displays all windows open so that you can quickly switch over to it. The picture below will give a good idea of AeroPeek.

on 03/02/2009 - like it?

Well not a “rodent” mouse, but a mouse, mouse. You know the computer peripheral :P Well my previous mouse (which, by the way was a contender for The Lamest Mouse award™ had almost died – the left clicks weren’t registering, the cord was getting all tangled up – and decided to go for a new mouse. Thought I’ll get a wireless one, and what the heck a Laser wireless one. After a bit of searching – this is what I got

[How-To] Organize Your Music Files and Tag Them Automatically
on 27/07/2008 - like it?

I’m a music buff.Music surrounds me all time time, whether its listening to it from my laptop or from my P1i. My music collection though isn’t as large as some other people’s, regardless I’d like to keep it organized. While re-organizing my music files, I realized that a huge chunk of my files were badly tagged, and erroneously named. So I set about searching for a software which can automatically tag and rename my files, and I found MusicBrainz Picard Tagger.

on 20/07/2008 - like it?

Nearly 3 months after BSNL had introduced their EVDO(aka mobile/wireless broadband) Tata Teleservices has launched the Photon – their version of the EVDO service.

For the unknown, EVDO is an acronym for Evolution-Data Optimized, which is a CDMA revision which allows for data transfer rates of upto 2.4 Mbps. Before you run out of your house to get a connection, do note that as of now the service is launched only in SELECT, sub urban areas of Chennai.

[How To] Removing Worm/Womble.D – Virus/Worm
on 15/06/2008 - like it?

Well as mentioned here my system was infected by this worm, so I thought I’d do a short post on how to fix this, as most Anti Virus Programs don’t get rid of this cleanly.

First thing, if you’re on the internet, GO OFFLINE! Disconnect, switch off the modem/router, pull the LAN/USB cable, just go offline. This is critical. Why you may ask?

My Laptop Gets An Attack!
on 15/06/2008 - like it?

A virus attack that is. After more than 8 months of virus-free computing(without using a Anti-Virus too, I might add) my laptop finally bit the bug(so to speak). It happened day-before yesterday, oddly seems to have triggered off after installation of Windows Media Player 11(Santosh was praising it, so I thought I’ll check it out). Downloaded it, got it WGA’d(yes my Windows XP SP2 is Genuine, OEM) and installed. First signs of trouble was when Windows Explorer kept throwing Data Execution Prevention Errors(DEP) while browsing through my Music partition. Then WMP11 kept crashing when trying to add my Audio collection(roughly about 7.65 GB).
