The My World “Comment And Win” Contest!(Well, Sorta)

Couple weeks ago I’d changed my theme to sodelicious2 and that put me in a spot of bother, as there was a gallery-which showed some pics and each were linked to, and was wondering what to do with them. Manan suggested that I could show off my gadgets, but then again, apart from my P1i, Inspiron 1520 and the HBH DS 970, don’t have anything else. Ashwin came up with the idea of posting blog pics of highest commenters  here, liked it and so I’m gonna implement it!

Was wondering how to find the highest commenters, since I know a little bit of SQL I came up with a short query and here are the “results”:

My World Gets Spiffier

Yup, if you’re reading this you obviously must have noticed the new theme for my blog, My World. I’d been using a slightly modified version of Seven theme, since the inception of My World. I really liked the theme, but it was kinda broken, and with AdBlock Plus addon my blog had a rather bland appearance.

Santosh told me its about time I changed my theme but I wasn’t getting enough time to search for a decent theme, as I’ve been facing rather strict deadlines off late. Santosh was also kind enough to search this fantastic theme, though he’d given it to me a while ago, I couldn’t get time to change it. Today, our office servers were down, and I thought this is a perfect time to dress my My World, and so here you go!

I think I’ll have to modify a bit more though – the links in the tag cloud aren’t picking the CSS value for links for instance. (I’m open to suggestions also by the way), and as you might have noticed, there’s a ticker of screenshots being displayed. Its rather generic now, but I’ll probably change it to something. In case you guys want something to be displayed, drop me a comment as to what you want me to display(and maybe a why too 😉 ) and I’d probably fill-it in.

So how do you like the new theme? Drop by a comment and let me know!

Cheers!

Some of The Most Embarrassing Moments

Another email forward that I’d got today. Absolutely awesome stuff. Direct copy paste from the mail.

[ad]

There was a World wide survey of “Most Embarrassing Moment in human life” and the final three incidents are ….

Third Place

It was the day before my eighteenth birthday. I was living at home, but my parents had gone out for the evening, so I invited my girlfriend over for a romantic night alone. As we lay in bed after making love, we heard the
Telephone ringing downstairs. I suggested to my girlfriend that I give her piggy-back ride to the phone. Since we didn’t want to miss the call, we didn’t have time to get dressed. When we got to the bottom of the stairs, the lights
Suddenly came on and a whole crowd of people yelled “SURPRISE!? My entire family, uncles, grandparents, cousins and all of my friends were standing there! My girlfriend and I were frozen to the spot in a state of shock and embarrassment!
For what seemed like an eternity. Since then, no-one in my family has planned a surprise party again.

Dress up GMail with Skins – And Improve The Functionality using Better GMail

[ad]

Well, I’m pretty sure most of you are heavy GMail users. For me GMail is my primary mail service now, with my domain-based mail running on Google Apps. As good as a service GMail is I find certain things annoying – such as the the way it defaults to top posting instead of bottom posting! And of course the default interface is a bit bland. That’s where Better GMail comes in. Better GMail is a collection of Greasemonkey userscripts all rolled into 1 neat Firefox addon!

Some of the features Better GMail has include

  • Support for themes
  • Saved searches
  • Keyboard macros
  • HTML signatures
  • Bottom posting instead of top posting
  • Attachment icons indicating file types
  • Unread mail count in tabs

Who were you in your past life?

[ad]

While surfing through the web, I found this link: Who were you in your past Life?

Here’s what it had to say about me

Your past life diagnosis:

I don’t know how you feel about it, but you were male in your last earthly incarnation.You were born somewhere in the territory of modern North China around the year 1000. Your profession was that of a builder of roads, bridges and docks.

Your brief psychological profile in your past life:

Revolutionary type. You inspired changes in any sphere – politics, business, religion, housekeeping. You could have been a leader.

The lesson that your last past life brought to your present incarnation:

Your lesson is to learn humility and faith in spiritual principles. You should believe in higher reasons.

Do you remember now?

Remember…errr.. No.  But a Chinese? Hmmm…

Do post in the comments about what it said about you!
