Sathyabama University: Boys and Girls can’t talk to each other

July 21, 2008

Today i came across a so called co-ed University where boys & girls are not supposed talk to each. even looking at each other is a offense. Interestingly the administration is proud of framing such sick rules and result of this they have got it in print.


Sathyabama University is a Private University in Tamil Nadu, India, founded in 1987 managed by Jeppiaar Educational Trust.It is a Christian Minority Institution.It is a deemed University which allows it to frame its own rules.


The rules are:

These are against gender equality & Fundamental right to Equality defined in our constitution

  • Girls and boys are not allowed to interact with each other in the campus.
  • Separate seating arrangements for girls and boys in the mess, class and bus.

An English New channel covered this story.
TimesNow – Regressive separation of the sexes?


Seriously dude, What The Fuck?

Howto get Inline/embedded Comment form in Blogger

July 12, 2008

Most people don’t like the default comment style of blogger, which is to have comments in separate window with a diffrent theme which does not match your site. for this reason alone people switch to other blogging platform like wordpress which have this features since ages.

Now blogger team has came to rescue, added inline comments, so that your readers can comment right on the page.however this feature is in testing phase only as it has lot of bugs.

but this does not mean you should not try it.

I have successfully implemented this on my blog, and shall guide you to do that same

1) Open http://draft.blogger.com/ & sign in with your user id & password

2) Upon reaching Dashboard, Navigate to Settings

3) Under Comments Tab; select “Embedded below post” in Comment Form Placement. then click on Save Settings.

4) Now the Embedded comments should appear, If you have custom template, you will need to make a small changes to your template code. But don’t worry, it’s a small change!

i) First Backup your template. to backup, navigate to Layout>Edit HTML. Under Backup / Restore Template head. Click Download Full Template.

ii) Now go to Layout>Edit HTML in your blog’s dashboard and check the “Expand widget templates” box.Search for this line in template code:

< b:include data=’post’ name=’comments’/>

now just after this add line

< b:include data=’post’ name=’comment-form’/>

please note, the above line needs to be added without deleting other line. it should be added just below it

If you have done all above things correctly then you should see an embedded comment form. if not then please re-read the above and verify that you did everything correctly. if you still not get it then you can ask but do give me all details. like your blog url,template,what procedure did you take etc etc.

This is a welcome feature on blogger which would stop many users from migrating to other blogging platforms. i hope blogger team fixed all current issues and makes it LIVE soon.

Please feel free to comment on this post & test the new feature before implementing it on your blog. you can learn about embedded comment forum on Bloggerindraft blog

Ubuntu Linux as Family PC

July 10, 2008
We know Linux is a operating system where everything can be customized as tag line for linux is “Linux – We Have a Choice”. this way a person can get a tailor made working environment which does all the tasks in his/her way, he can schedule his daily encoding & downloading tasks,made custom keyboard shortcuts for his most used function.

This generally suits a single user Pc, but what about a system used by many persons in a single user account?, for them we need some customisations that does not need any prior expriance & comouter could be operated by use of common sense. now you would ask why use a single user account?, why not create accounts for every user. here are the reasons:-

* It would require you to always log-on & log-off every now, which requires you to restart all your running applications. For example:while you are burning a DVD, your dad needs to check a important e-mail from his boss. his E-mail is configured on Evolution(default mail client for ubuntu), so he has to login his account and check email whereas you can’t logoff as basaro can’t be stopped in the middle.
how convient it would have been if there was a single user account which would be suitable for all.

* Remembering Userid & passwords is also a big project. we already have bank a/c,ATM pin,login details at work,internet banking userid & passwords and tons of other such details. who add one more to the never ending list?

Question :
How to Manage a single user account which suits everyone in your family

Ans:
Manage Thundebird & Firefox using Profile Manager
Mozilla applications store your personal settings, added extensions and themes, and user data such as bookmarks, passwords, cookies and mail in a “profile”. The Profile Manager allows you to create and manage profiles. With a new profile the application will run without any extensions, themes, or customized settings that may be causing problems, but you can still import your data from another profile or switch back to a previous profile.

Intel CPU Price Cuts to Come on July 20 – 45nm Dual Cores to be affected

July 7, 2008

It looks like this hot summer will become more bearable for us regular folks, thanks to a couple of initiatives coming from some of the biggest hardware manufacturers. As you might know, AMD and NVIDIA have already started to downsize the price tags for their graphics cards lineups, and Intel is soon to get in the game of price cuts as well. However, since Intel is not yet a competitor in the discrete graphics department, it can only lower the
prices for the central processing units.

Initially, it was said that Intel’s CPUs would see the first price cut come August 10, but according to recent reports, it seems the company can’t wait until then. This basically means that Intel’s fans should be on the lookout for much cheaper processors staring with July 20. The news isn’t yet confirmed and the exact numbers haven’t been made public so far, but computer users should definitely have something to wait for – according to sources, the July price cuts should affect both boxed and tray processors. As a matter of fact, the 45nm dual cores are said to be the ones that will most suffer from the price cuts.

Intel’s lowest 45nm Intel Core 2 processor, which has a core speed of 2.53 and comes with 3MB of L2 cache, is among the products that will come cheaper this summer. Along with it, the top E8500 model, as well as other Intel Core 2 Duo processors are expected to come with lower price tags even before the end of this month. These CPUs are targeted to the mid-range market which, in turn, means that most computer users will benefit from the rumored price cuts, if they do materialize.

So, if you are planning on acquiring a new computer system, or just on upgrading you current desktop rig to these 45nm-manufactured processors, then maybe the wisest thing to do would be to just wait a bit more. If all goes as rumored, you will end up with better technology for less the money. And, even if all of the above is not yet confirmed, the end of the month is just around the corner, as they say, and we will know soon enough.
