Dish antenna for free.

I will not be surprised if the roads in major cities in India is littered with dish antenna. People (including I) are terribly dissatisfied with the service (non service) of Dish TV, who was the first to have come on this scene a year ago.

Their customer care number: 9789166556 is inaccessible. For roughly 45 minutes, I tried this mobile number but no response. They have an inefficient web site that only adds to the chaos.

I heard from a dealer here that already two subscribers of Dish TV surrendered their dish antenna and demanded payment because of poor service by the Dish TV.

It is very clear that they are least bothered about their customers once they dump the materials on them. Every now and then a channel will vanish and no information will be provided to their customers.

I too am waiting for the reliable Reliance to come on the scene and I am sure they will vanquish inefficient operators.

The call center service is becoming very unreliable of late.cry

Please comeback, India needs you.

This call is for all those web developers that have migrated to America. Though I don't blame them, I feel their absence here whenever I encounter poor and pathetic web sites that I have to deal with.

For example, the web site of dishtv, which is ( dishtvindia.in) one the leading providers of satellite TV services. Four months ago, I encountered a problem of paying on line the monthly fees. I immediately informed them about this. They have acknowledged it and I heard that they still let it be like that. And this is one the top corporate houses in India.

The next is the broadband and telephone service provider AirTel from the house of Bharti AirTel. Here, in airtel.in, their server goes out of service frequently. Then, if we wrongly enters our password, it will repeatedly ask us to open a new browser. I feel this is a stupid security measures that not even Paypal and e-bay has incorporated.

So, please come back web developers. Treat this as a S.O.S. call.

Honda hooked me.

Even though, I am not a car owner, I always go by car anywhere within the city. I simply hire a car for my purpose and I take whatever car that is offered to me. I have no preferences until one day, I happen to ride in Honda Accord. It was purely luxurious and comfortable.

To my liking, the driver was also talkative and during the day, he regaled me with hilarious stories about various customers he took in his car. Also, he was very knowledgeable about various types of cars and their maintenance cost, running cost, mileage and other performance.

He said that Honda is currently the largest engine manufacturer in the world. This particular car I was riding in is near maintenance free because he said that he buys the spare parts from radiator.com that maintains an inventory of over 80,000 parts.

Radiator.com keeps a full stock of Honda and Civic Radiator. Each of these original equipment quality parts come equipped with a no hassle lifetime warranty on parts and labor.

I rang up my travel agent and requested that he send only the Honda Accord in future for my requirements. I hope he sends the same driver too. razz

Paid to search marketing strategy.

Why would anyone looking to promote their website or service through paid to search method in search engines other than Google? Those 'other' search engines-do they still thrive? I thought Google has swallowed those micro size PPC search engines.

Ok, I am not going to influence your mind if you are bent upon your marketing campaign through paid to search but can you please tell me your parameters on which you select a PPC search engine?

What is the minimum click conversion ratio do you anticipate for your ad campaign. The reason I am asking his, I might be able to help you in some way. I have done some research on this topic that helped me to gain fairly good knowledge about PPC advertising.

How to make use of Social News.

It is no wonder that Dosh Dosh enjoys huge readership. I happen to read his fantastic article on 'Social Websites' and I envy that man's knowledge and of course patience to write in depth article.

After reading this article, I started looking at social websites that allow us to submit news stories with a different perspective.

I liked his explanation about social news sites:
"Social News websites generally operate via a wisdom of the crowds principle; groups of individuals with different points of views are able to collectively determine the value or importance of content disseminated through the community."

This is an excellent observation. I know everyone's favorite social news is Digg but my vote is for Sphinn and I really find pleasure reading Sphinn. The layout is good and the navigation is easy.

I concentrate on news stories about internet and web applications more than any other topics.
I understand that Shoutwire.com is slowly gaining rating.

Where is Riviera Maya located?


“Oh, who is interested in dull geographical information mom?’-the question was posted by my son who thinks nothing is more interesting in the world than music and food. It is the age dear, the age. He is twenty two now. (Smile)

But, he was excited when I told him about where we are planning to stay when we visit Mexico in December 2008. Mayan Riviera, or Riviera Maya in Spanish, is one of the most popular destinations in Mexico.

I just allowed him to read the web release of KARISMA hotels that was explicit about its luxurious resorts located in Riviera Maya.

I showed my son all their five signature resorts and he found it difficult to choose one. We explored about their famous cuisine and here is what they say about it:

“Well, call us food fanatics; call us bon vivants, because we just believe that you cannot have a great vacation without great food.”

I think that did the trick on my son. His next question was: “Mom, this Cancun Vacations, can’t we not plan during next month itself?”


Are you studying for MCSA/MCSE.?

Subsequent to my previous post, my son asked me to blog about this wonderful form for all WSUS questions along with some good how-to's. This seems a good resource for anyone administering WSUS or studying for MCSA/MCSE.

Yes, I remember one of present students mentioned about this course that he is doing part time. This forum can be a good resource for him.

I noticed that the forum has 14,400 members who have actively participated so far and created over 39,000 posts. More over, at any given time, hundreds of guests are reading this forum.

But, there are a few topics that is lacking in participation. The most active topic is on 'WSUS 2 Server issues'. Obviously, this topic should be more interesting or it generates more doubts.

Free tutorials for students.

It is project time for my son who is in the final year of his engineering course. For a change, he did not seek my help in this matter and my time is saved. Thank you son.

But he took my advise on how to search in the internet for his project requirements. He landed on a very useful web site not only for himself but for all the students.

Pro Profs is actually a social web site for free tutorials on a variety of subjects. This site is for the students and by the students. They submit websites that contain content in the following categories.
Cisco Certification
Comptia Certification
Computers
Education And Exams
Hardware
IT Certification Exams
K-12 Education
Microsoft Certification
Programming
SAT, TOEFL, ACT, GRE, GMAT
Software, OS & Applications

I am quoting here an example:
"http://www.quickdegree.info is a new site that explains how to earn college credit through exams, portfolio, certification, free courses and articulation agreements."

That should indicate what one can find in this website. Please share it students!

Minnesota Tekne Award for Capella University.

The following blog post is based on information provided by Blogitive. For more information, please visit Blogitive.com.

Earning a degree from an American University is every Indian student’s dream. Now, even working teachers and administrators of educational institutions aspire to posses a degree from an American university in their field of working.

This is a healthy trend really but how many seriously pursue their dream? Many slowly give up their quest because they have no time to go abroad and study for a few years. In between, they would have considered online education but must have felt the need to guide them to a very good online university. For them, Capella University can be an ideal solution.

Capella University is an accredited is an accredited online university that offers graduate degree programs in business, information technology, education, health, human services, public safety, and psychology and bachelor’s degree programs in business, information technology, health, and public safety.

The recent web release from Blogitive.com mentions about the prestigious Minnesota Tekne Award bagged by Capella University along with Ecolab and Honeywell. Also Capella was recently designated as a Center for Academic Excellence in Information Assurance Education by the National Security Agency (NSA) and the Department of Homeland Security.

Women's Pay Day Advance.

The day have been very busy as usual; started taking class for mathematics from 5.30 AM to 8.00 AM; cooked food till 9.30 AM, and got ready for share trading by 9.50 AM.

The market was sluggish and several of my favorites took a hasty beating. I noted down their price and marked them to be bought when the market looks up. But what a shame, my broker let me down badly by saying that I have no margin left.

Yes, I realized that my money is locked up in a few newly bought stocks. I needed money badly for this week’s trading. I must raise enough money before the Christmas.

I guess only payday loans can rescue my cash crunch. I can meet the repayment schedule easily. By first week of Jan, I will be stuffed with funds because of new admissions.

I decided to look up at cashadvance1500.com, a dependable resource for women who are in need of emergency cash. One of their listing is about a perfect site for women who are in need of quick cash assistance. Whether money is needed for paying bills, shopping or just going out with the girls, this site seems to understand women’s cash advance needs and how to meet them quickly.

You ask;we answer.

Who are 'we'? You and I of course.

Questions are also asked by you and I. Ask anything and if someone knows the answer, they will be pleased to quench your thirst for knowledge.

The website for this is Fluther.
Yes, a very odd name and not easy to remember; so you better bookmark it and share it too folks.

Here is a question:
" What are some of the ways God has shown his love for you?"
It received 13 responses so far.

Here is another:
"what do you think pubs will look and be like in five years time?"
I liked this response or this. "I know one thing: They mustn’t have Microsoft Surface…"

Good; amusing and fun.

Smorty hires bloggers.

A girl studied with my husband in school sent his daughter to me. I have never seen her before and even my husband has not heard from his schoolmate after 1971.

The girl’s name is Bharati. She is a well paid software engineer. She was looking to change her career because she could not endure the pressures of her employer. She sought my assistance and asked me if I can help her in anyway.

She showed me her past achievements and I noticed the she maintains a blog that attracts more then 250 readers daily. I was impressed by the statistics and inquired her if she would like to blog for money for which she readily gave her consent.

Then I showed her the website of Smorty, a service connecting advertisers with bloggers. I explained how smorty.com works and how it acts as an intermediary between a blogger and an advertiser.

This is a wonderful opportunity to get paid for blogging and the more blogs you maintain, the more you can earn. I told her how it is important for her to build up the readership for her blogs and gave her a lot of useful tips in that direction.

I showed her how Smorty.com has been giving me blogging assignments and also showed the payment proof.

I hope she takes up the proposal seriously and work as a professional blogger. She has the required talent.

Several parks for one low price.

How much is a low price? It is only 14 dollars per day and that is valid for 14 days. This fantastic offer is from OrlandoFunTickets.com, the number one source for Disney World Tickets in Orlando.

Visitors to Disney World will generally come armed with a big list of places to see. But the moment they enter the theme park, they will be astounded by the size of every theme park and the time taken to see every one of them.

More over, they would not have imagined he cost of admission ticket to all those dinner shows and rides. Orlando Flex Tickets offer several parks for one low price- as low as 14 US Dollars per day! These passes are valid for fourteen consecutive days with unlimited admissions to the parks they cover.

OrlandoFunTickets.com offers the lowest discount prices on all Orlando Flex Tickets.
Tickets never expire until they are used for the first time- then you have 14 days of unlimited use.

Don’t you think this is an ideal option when you are planning on vacationing in Orlando for more than a week?

Please include WetNWild theme park in your ‘must see’ list. It is truly stupendous.

India Infoline share trading software.

After much shopping online and doing a bit of research, I have decided to call the marketing person of India Infoline Ltd to have a discussion about share trading online through them. They are one of the leading share broking firm in India-at least that is how they are reported in web sites and news papers.

The person who came to meet me in a very short time was Mr.Rakesh who was quite knowledgeable and very friendly. He downloaded the online share trading software provided by his firm and gave a demo.

But today, that software refused to get connected to its server. (weekend may be?) Also, it slowed down my system considerably.

Not an auspicious beginning?

Snow fall or snow content?

This is a nice question raised by R.P. on the measurement of snow fall.
It is a common knowledge that snow fall is measured with a ruler. How it can be correct when the snow continues to melt and fresh snow continues to fall?

A very intelligent question-right? We too have been reading about the amount of snow fall that fell overnight but we never thought like R.P.

It was answered like this:
Yes, the snow fall is measured by a ruler that indicated how much snow is on the ground and not how much snow has fallen.

National Weather Service use surfaces that they clean off after each snowfall or each hour of
snowfall.

Thank you Wendell Bechtold, meteorologist, Forecaster, National Weather Service.

Owens Hunter Series Dog Boxes.

I never had the necessity to own even a car because I am a work at home now. I have quit my job as a lecturer to devote my full time to my own maths academy.

But this involved frequent shifting my office or home as per the demands of unavoidable circumstances. Even now, I am contemplating to relocate to a different city though it involves a lot of expenses.

I have accumulated a truck load things plus two puppies that are threatening to outgrow their shelters. I cannot imagine shifting them in their present shelters.

There must be some way to put them in a dog box with ample ventilation. And I know that the dog box should be lined with a durable plastic corrugated material that is easy to clean and helps to keep the dogs warm in the winter and cool in the summer.

Oh yes, I almost forgot. BuyAutoTruckAccessories has a dog box for all needs. I can upload this dog box on the back cabin of a truck.

Does it really clean the carpet?


The telephone call (it is certainly unsolicited) that I received today was about a new vacuum cleaner that is supposed to clean the carpet and make it look like a new one.

I had my apprehension since I have been using a vacuum cleaner for more than 25 years and it serve the basic cleaning necessities but it is only a dry cleaner.

But how a wet cleaner will work? I was given to understand that this new vacuum cleaner literally
shampoo clean the carpet. I was told that it injects a cleaning solution into a carpet and then sucks the dirty solution back out.

Hmm.. seems workable-isn't it?

Got questions about health concerns?

“I owe you one, man”, I told myself long ago mentally thanking one of my husband’s relative who got my first job in a nursing home as a patients’ care supervisor. It was more of a house keeping job attending mostly to complaints of cockroaches and mosquitoes and faulty furniture.

Now my husband’s relative whose name is Krishna is in a dilemma. His mother aged 82 is finding the life tough in a home for the aged. The home advised him to take his mother back.

When I came to know about BetterCaring.com, I immediately thought of Krishna. This web site will definitely be useful to him and to his mother. It is an indispensable resource for anyone seeking or researching care solutions.

Bettercaring.com is a dedicated service for anyone who needs answers to crucial questions about care for themselves or their loved ones. I think it is the right resource for him to arrange for alternative care to his mother.

One more helpline from Krillion.

I thought Polaroid only makes cameras and sun glasses. This is the first time I am hearing about Polaroid HDTV.

What is so special about Polaroid HDTV?

I read somewhere that it helps the viewer's eye to perceive contrast better. Is it so?

It must surely offer better viewing experience as all the HDTV offers crystal clear digital quality.

I suppose not many dealers of Polaroid HDTV can be found in my area. Or may be I am not yet aware of them because, I have mostly seen Sony and Sharp products everywhere.

Then I remembered the Krillion Localization Engine that will help me locate a dealer for Polaroid HDTVnear my locality. Krillion search engine is known for its comprehensive product, pricing and location information helps buyers find the exact TV they want at the retailers nearest them, bridging the last mile between a buyer’s online research.

Hmmm… saves a lot of hassles-right?

Dyson’s great vacuum cleaners.

Well, at last, after nearly two weeks of moving into our new house, we have settling down and started to enjoy the new surroundings, spacious bath rooms and airy bedrooms.

The past two weeks was really hectic fixing innumerable items, re-arranging the home theater and modifying the kitchen to our convenience.

Though we have managed to clean the house thoroughly, some items were still an eyesore for us. The first one is the exhaust fan that has accumulated lot of grime.

An ordinary vacuum cleaner is not sufficient to clean it. It requires some special accessory like the one supplied by Dyson. One of the Dyson genuine accessories is the stubborn dirt remover with stiff bristles that can remove dried up grime and dust.

It is costing only £12.00 and should be very useful for every household. Dyson range of vacuum cleaners and accessories are innovative.

The website is designed with aesthetic sense and the navigation is free of confusion.

Its founder James Dyson is a true visionary.

Get in to the Second Act.

I am a selfish person. During big festivals like Christmas, I buy myself a gift first and then only I buy for others.

There is a simple logic here. When I buy myself a gift, I am very happy and that makes my feelings and emotions benevolent. Then I go about buying gifts for others that are more valuable than mine. (Smile)

I hope you understand. Now, may I go to Second Act, my favorite online shop? Today, I have received in my email, as their deal of the day, the Saeco Incanto Coffee maker. The existing one needs to be thrown away literally. It has served us long and begs retirement.

Second Act is an authorized dealer for many popular brands plasma TV too. The brands include Hitachi, Sharp and the dependable Samsung.

You can also sign up for the deal of the day and let me tell you one thing; you can save big money from it. Remember, the product offered in the deal of the day stays there for only 24 hours.

Why it is called Sterling Silver?

We take many words and names in our day to day usage for granted. I mean, we never thought about why a prefix was added to something or somebody.

For example, do we know why the metal silver is quoted as sterling silver in many places? We don’t use that term when go to buy silver coins or silver ornaments! Even silver medals awarded in Olympic game are known as silver medals only and not as sterling silver.

Sterling Silver may have been known first as "Easterling Silver". The term "Easterling Silver" is believed to have been used to refer to the grade of silver that had originally been used as the local currency in an area of Germany, known as "The Easterling".

This "Easterling" area consisted of five towns in the northern part of Germany that banded together in the 12th century under the name Hanseatic League. The Hanseatic League proceeded to engage in considerable commerce with England. In payment for English cattle and grain, the League used their local currency. This currency was in the form of 92.5% silver coins. England soon learned that these coins, which they referred to as "the coins of the Easterlings", were of a reliably high quality and hardness. The original name "Easterling Silver" was later abbreviated to "Sterling Silver".

Silver coins sold in bags by Monex, the precious metals leader of America, are of 90% purity. They also offer Silver Eagles that are pure .999 fine silver, the finest silver coins ever minted and distributed in the U.S.A.

At Monex, silver is available in ingot form too. Through Monex Deposit Company (MDC) you can purchase silver or other precious metals for immediate personal delivery or arrange for convenient and safe storage at an independent bank or depository.

Build your own shopping cart easily.

Opening an online shopping mall requires an in depth knowledge about today’s customers’ shopping preferences. Technologically, online shopping has undergone a sea of change and accordingly, software developers are continuously bringing advanced features in shopping cart that are more user friendly.

Equally, hackers become smarter and are able to breach any advanced security built in with all the ecommerce websites.

The third major concern is the stability of the system. In other words, shopping cart software should be capable to handle breakdowns and data loss. Cookies are very important for any online business and cannot be neglected.

Ashop Commerce is a leading ecommerce solutions provider that has taken care of all the above features in their shopping cart software. As a customer, you can build your own shopping cart and test drive it for ten days before subscribing to their facility.

They allow the merchant to build an online store capable of competing with the webs most powerful sites for a simple, low monthly fee.

Capturing the right moment.

Some smiles can’t be seen or repeated again-right? A smile or a laugh or a look of shock that is expressed naturally cannot be mimicked.

This is especially so when see something beautiful outside or when you hear an amusing story or when you see a stupid title in the news paper. When it is recollected and recounted to somebody, you can only describe the incident or event but you cannot play back the exact emotion.

Such wonderful emotions and expressions can be captured as it is and reviewed later with the help of a digital photo frame. It is just like playing a VCD in your computer. But viewing with digital picture frame, you don’t require a computer.


See the picture of a 15 inch digital picture frame here. This digital photo frame comes with a remote control device and built in speakers. This instrument is compatible with JPEG, MP4, DivX, AVI, MPEG1, MPEG2, MPEG4, MP3, WMA, WAV formats.

This means that you can also view movie clips that have been taken with your camera, even play music in the background.

Isn’t the idea wonderful?

Online comparison shopping service.

I am not a fortune teller but still I foresee a bright future for savebuckets.co.uk. The range of consumer electronics and computer related entertainment products, household utilities and sports gear on which they offer price comparison can soon suffocate their server due to heavy traffic.

Next is their excellent buying guide for a big range of products. For example, if you want buy a new coffee maker, you can find useful information about various types of coffer makers and how to buy one. And if you want to buy the latest blender for you kitchen, you can compare prices of several blenders and then choose the right one.

To write about their product range, I may have to fill in several pages in this blog. So, I would recommend you to pay a visit to their site.

Captain Chris’ close combat training.

The landlord of our just moved in house is an ex-service man. He is now 66 years old. But he says that he is 66 years young and we could not hide our envy. He is absolutely fit to act in movies as a stunt man.

He was regaling us with his military days and the basic training camp that is supposed to be the test of one’s endurance physically and mentally.

He was telling us in great detail about his close combat training and showed us many scars on his body he carries with pride. When my son raised some questions on hand to hand combat methods, he patiently revealed a lot of hidden truths about martial arts and how it can prepare oneself to face any kind of threatening situation.

I thought the craze for martial arts among the youth has long since disappeared but he strongly refuted my theory. He then asked me if I have ever heard about Captain Chris’ close combat training and his dedicated services to this important self defense method.

I said no. I could see his disappointment in his face about my lack of knowledge but he quickly regained his composure and requested me and my son to have a look at Chris’ web site.

An interesting tidbit of information:

Soldiers in China were trained in unarmed combat as early as the Zhou Dynasty during 1022 BC to 256 BC.

Early Childhood Education from Capella University.

Being a lecturer of mathematics involved other chores such as counseling parents. During one such session, I was terribly embarrassed to face the mother of one of my students who literally fell on her knees and begged me to give special mathematics coaching to her child studying in 2nd standard. I only handle high school and college students.

I somehow convinced her that I don’t teach kindergarten children and promised to talk to the teacher of her child.

But I know that there is no need for that as I am aware of the short comings of the said kindergarten teacher. Many such teachers if they study Master of Science (MS) in Education – Early Childhood Education from capella university, they will do a great service to the nation.

Capella’s masters degree specialization in Early Childhood Education is designed to prepare teachers to design, implement, and evaluate developmentally appropriate learning experiences for young children.

Most of the kindergarten teachers require further training to understand child psychology, classroom management, and early childhood learning environment.

The curriculum of Capella’s masters degree specialization in Early Childhood Education includes all the above.

Founded in 1993, Capella University is an accredited, fully online university that offers graduate online degree programs in business, information technology, education, human services, public health, public safety, and psychology, and bachelor’s degree programs in business, information technology, and public safety.

GPS tracker stick.


Let me elaborate. We all drive in our car to a new location once in a way. It may be to a new hotel or a friend's house for the first time. As a student, we may get lost inside the campus.

There is no need to be embarrassed. This happens to many. For them (I included), the new GPS super tracker stick is essential to carry along wherever they go.

It records all its own movements. In short, it records anything that moves. The Super Trackstick records its own location, time, date, speed, heading, altitude and temperature at preset intervals.

How it works:
It is said to receive signals from satellites.
Do you know that it is connected to 24 satellites?
It is works on the planet Earth completely.
Your exact location and the route traveled can be viewed and played back directly within Google™ Earth.
Everything is included and there are no monthly fees.

Valuable business leads from Martin Worldwide.

It was 2.30 Am when the party ended and the guests started to leave. Every second Saturday night, we have this party at one of friend’s house. It is jus our usual gathering always but once in a way, the host will surprise the guests by inviting a celebrity.

Last week, three elderly males were present that were new to us. They were introduced as specialists in helping unemployed to get a hold on online business that requires no upfront money to a third party but only a moderate fee to this group as consultant fees.

Since, I consider myself as more experienced in the Internet than them; I was not really attentive to them. But I saw many house wives were clustered around the group for most of the time, listening and asking cheerfully.

I saw a familiar face secretly advancing towards me and asked me if I know anything about an Internet marketing tool called business leads. My reply was affirmative naturally as I have myself bought business leads once and helped my school management also to market their admission campaign with a mailing list.

After a few minutes, the number of people near me swelled to seven and I realized that my personal business leads increased by seven. (smile)

Big business ventures approach Martin Worldwide that possesses a database of over 290 million consumers and 14 million U.S. businesses and is one of the only major list providers to guarantee its data integrity in writing.

Organization of Mothers of Twins!

The news of twins naturally doubled our happiness. After so many anxious months, my friend gave birth to twin males last night in Virginia.

Doctors have diagnosed high BP that put her on lot of restrictions on her food. She was worried that she will give birth to less weight baby. But all are safe now.

She now has to cope up the problems of a parent of twins. She requires a lot of advice on various parenting issues related to twin children. She has to find an experienced nurse first. Then she must look for proper dress for the kids.

Fortunately for her, she can interact with other parents of twins through lilaguide.com, the Internet’s first social networking for moms and dads and Internet’s first search engine for baby products.

Lilaguide.com launches with 32,000 listings and over 120,000 reviews from real parents who want to share their advice on baby products, services, and activities in 5,000 neighborhoods across the U.S. from New York to L.A., Chicago, Atlanta, San Francisco, and Miami.

Lilaguide.com begins its relationship with parents before the baby is born by addressing the specific—and multiple—local needs of soon-to-be-moms, from doulas and pregnancy massages to maternity stores and birthing classes.

There is even a club called National Organization of Mothers of Twins Clubs, Inc. that is listed in lilaguide.com

The worst customer service in UCO bank.

There is a limit one can tolerate impoliteness and inadequate services. UCO bank today denied me a cheque book without any reason at first and shortage of cheque books later.

The person who talked to me at first was rude and said flatly, "No, I can't give you a cheque book". No reason was given and he immediately went about doing his work as if I was not even there. Such impoliteness can't be tolerated by anyone.

I have been an account holder in that bank since 1990. It is no way to treat a long standing customer. The entire residents of Korattur have been silently tolerating the inefficient services of this bank.

Sometimes, cheque books were not issued even for a month. When queried, a staff will always say, " No stock received from the head office".

Their printer will go out of order very frequently and you can't update your pass-book.

Today, the manager tried to pacify me saying that only one cheque book will be given to a person. Why we do customers request a cheque book? There is some purpose behind their request.

The staff is conveniently forgetting that the bank is run for customers only and they are getting paid by the account holders.

Other private and multi national banks will treat every customer as a VIP. Cheque books and demand drafts will be door delivered.

Oh, what a b(u)ank! These nationalized banks are still traveling in bullock cart. What the so called FII (foreign institutional investor) are seeing in India. Probably an opportunity to provide better service?

Any recommendations for a digital diary?

I am shopping for a handy digital diary that should come with at least 1 GB memory. It is my practice to seek recommendations or feedback on a product that I intend to buy online.

Since my business has expanded beyond my expectations, my contacts also increased. Most of the time, I may need to contact someone while I am on the move.


I can no longer carry my physical address book. I need it to be replaced with a digital diary. Any particular brand that you liked? I am open for suggestions. Don’t limit yourself.


My budget is open.

Effective use of balance transfer option.

Not all Credit Card Balance Transfer offer the same benefits. Each credit card differs in their offers.

Some may give you a free period before the interest is charged. In other words, you get an interest holiday period when you opt for a balance transfer facility.

I hold three different credit cards and so far I have never exercised the balance transfer option because I don’t know whether it saves money.

Then, someone recommended me to look up at the creditcardsearchengine.com for comparison of credit cards. Though I was not looking to buy another credit card, the site gave me enough insight on balance transfer facility and its advantages.

When I told my husband what I learnt, he gave me a hard look and said, “So you can have your cake and eat it too?” and he is right!

CreditCardSearchEngine features several offers from leading U.S Credit Card issuers such as J.P. Morgan Chase, Bank of America, Citibank and leading brands Visa, MasterCard, American Express and Discover Card.

Free press release for you.

Time and again, I have read the views and suggestions of veteran Internet marketers and they have emphatically conveyed that press release is the best way to propagate your website or blog.

I thought press release involves lot of money till I stumbled on to PRCompass.com. It offers both free and paid press releases. PR Compass is online press release service that offers both free and paid distribution to search engines, newswires and websites.

What is unique about PRCompass is the press release writeup is rated by the members of PRCompass.com and then only gets published.

Your press release gets submitted to Google and yahoo news, major social bookmarks that include Digg, Technorati, Delicious and MySpace. It also goes to several RSS feeds and search engines.

Page Rank reduction issue.

But is there any real point in discussing about the Google page rank reduction? I suppose none was spared. I too got the stick in many of my blogs.

The baffling issue is the speculation about the entire episode which is not really helping the victims to correct their so called wrong doing.

Some attribute the link farm generated by networking as the reason for page rank reduction and some say that pro bloggers are penalized for their involvement with all the internet marketing websites who pay bloggers to write about the advertisers' products and services in their blog.

If only Google says openly about the reasons for their action....

Journey Lite’s weight loss solution.

“Mala, look at me, I am a full pregnant woman and my bulging stomach is shadowed by my obesity; I envy you for your slender frame”-said the complaining voice of my sister.

I know she is over weight even before marriage. She is a very good eater but that is obviously proving to be detrimental to her.

I suspect she showed much indifference to the doctor’s advice. Her baby is due in about two weeks. Could she probably undertake a lapband surgery? I know that Tampa lap band surgery is near risk free and that might be an ideal solution for her over indulgence at the dining table.

The lap band surgery is a discovery of a genius. In this procedure the size of the ever craving stomach is shrunk considerably with the help of a gastric band that is tied around the upper part of the stomach. This procedure will allow you to feel full and satisfied while you actually eat less and lose excess weight.

Journey Lite is a fast growing network of specialized surgical facilities, highly skilled and experienced bariatric surgeons and a team of healthcare professionals dedicated to providing the safest and least invasive surgical weight-loss solution and the most comprehensive support programs available today.

I advised my sister to contact her doctor and explore the possibility of having a lap band surgery.

Do books earn you friends?

There will not be a single 'NO' for an answer to the above question.

We choose to buy books on recommendations and reviews. We read reviews on line and still ask around if anyone has read that particular book and if so, what is their feedback.

For me, I have earned quite a lot of friends because of books only and we all still keep in touch, share books and save money, offer tips and reviews and we even meet occasionally.

Shelfari is such a web site that facilitates all the above. Shelfari makes it easy to see what your friends are reading, what others with similar tastes have enjoyed, and even get and give book recommendations.

With Shelfari, you can meet like minded persons from any corner of the world; isn't that wonderful?

Beautiful blogger template.

I have tolerated several criticisms on my choice of templates which all looked alike. Of course I am not hurt or offended. What to do, I am not a techie to hack templates. I always depend on someone else's help.

For example, I liked this beautiful template called Andreas02 designed by GeckoAndFly.com.
Look at the header image, it reminds of a highway that leads you to far off; a sense of infinity hangs around this image.

And there are many tabs that can be used for efficient navigation. Overall, this is a good template. I like it.

Affordable vacation rentals in Orlando.

Here is some insight on vacation rental. I know you are on the verge of booking your orlando florida vacation rental for your Christmas holidays. But a few trivia will amuse you.

Vacation rental is a term in the travel industry meaning renting out a furnished apartment or house on a temporary basis to tourists as an alternative to a hotel.

Do you know that due to the popularity of this concept, in Barcelona, local authorities determined that vacation rentals were becoming a threat to the hotel industry and passed some legislation placing regulations and limits on the industry?

But in the U.S., the concept is well received and thus paved way for new entrepreneurs in this booming hospitality industry. To my knowledge, several companies are operating in Florida alone cashing in on the tourists rush to see the Disney World.

Orlando.com is one such popular company that com provides the most affordable prices on the widest selection of hotels, car rentals and flights throughout the greater Orlando Florida area.

Ambani denies the report.

Just after day it was reported that Ambani of the Reliance group is the richest man in the world overtaking Bill gates, he has denied that he is the richest man in the world.

Well, he should his reasons for his denial and we should respect it and elevate Bill Gates again and enthrone him.

To my guess, BCCI (Board of Cricket Control in India) should be the richest corporate body. Every now and then news papers in India reports their wealth. They have built up crores of Rupees and no one knows what they are doing with it.

In my opinion, with their wealth, they can completely eradicate poverty in India.

International movers.

What do you call this-a coincidence or chance?

When I am trying to locate a mover in my city, I am asked to do a review about an international mover.

Ok, here it is that will benefit many people in the world. I think of Indians especially because I know that hundreds of families are migrating from India to the U.S. because a member in the family who is already working in the U.S. has just got his American citizen.

This website has tie up with many international shipping agencies and packers and movers. They assure safe logistics solution irrespective of your location in the world.

This service is a unique one and needs to be bookmarked.

What exactly is HDTV?

Though we buy big appliances directly from the store, we look up in the Internet for product information. So, here is some product information on HDTV.

High-definition television (HDTV) is a digital television broadcasting system with a significantly higher resolution than traditional formats. HDTV is also capable of producing theater-quality audio because it uses the Dolby Digital format.

The standards for HDTV are currently defined by the International Telecommunication Union. Even though the

HDTV prices continue to fall, the demand is always there. Of the several brands that market HDTV, panasonic HDTV is the most sought after product.

The popular search engine Krillion also gives valuable product information that many shoppers use them as a guide. Full description of the product, its technical information and product specification are clearly published by Krillion along with the search result. Apart from the product information, Krillion tells you who your nearest dealer is for panasonic HDTV.

Krillion local search results provide the most accurate local shopping results available on the Web.

Do we know what '~' is for?

We have been using our computer keyboard for a long time. But are we using all the keys? Obviously not. Because it is not required.

Ok, at least do we know the functions of the rarely or unused keys? Certainly not!

For example we rarely use function keys that are numbered as F1 to F12. We do not use '^' also.
Do we know what '~' is for? When did it start appearing on our keyboard?

Here is some useful information about a file with '~' that appear on our desktop.

To say it in brief:
"This file started appearing on people's desktop after the April 2003, Cumulative Patch for Outlook Express (330994) update released by Microsoft. If that update is installed and you take any action that changes the Windows Address Book the tilde file will appear on your desktop."

However, you can click on the link above to know in detail.

Get the best relocation quotes nation wide.

My family is moving to a different house this Sunday. It is a fairly bigger house from where I can operate my maths academy also. We all liked the place though the rent is on the higher side. (Rs.10, 000).

We have many furniture, 3 computers and three heavy cupboards. So, the next big question is to find a reasonably priced packer and mover. It is always easy to decide in favor of bigger house in a better locality but we usually feel uncomfortable when faced with challenges of relocation related tasks that include find a moving service, informing the post office, banks and several utility services about the change of address etc.

I wish there is a company in India like National Relocation that offer a unique relocation service. We can list all our possessions that require shifting, particular of present location to the new location etc and receive quotations from movers.

National Relocation offers other related services such as real estate and rentals. This is a big company and operates nation wide.

Apartment owners can list their properties for rent for free with NationalRelocation.com. As many owners are utilizing this free service, their apartment rentals section offers a wide range of apartments that are suitable to all classes of people.

If only such a company exists in India, it can reap rich rewards.

The price of Gold will rise!

Businessmen and house wives in India have been sitting on the edge of their seat as if they are watching a one day cricket match. But they are actually watching the price of gold which is witnessing a steady rise for the past week.

Subscribers to several financial news letters are aware that many financial experts have predicted that the gold price will soar to Rs.1000 per gram within a month or so. But beating the prediction, the gold price is already nearing the Rs.1000 mark and now stands at Rs.925 per ram.

Credit Suisse predicts that the yellow metal will touch $1000 per ounce over the next five years. As usual, I looked up at Monex for their views. Yes, they also conform to the views of experts.

If Monex agrees, then I don’t have to look any further. After all, it has been serving the Americans’ precious metal investing needs for the last 30 years.

Email icon generator.

My long time wish to have my own email icon is fulfilled today. I should thank my friend Subhash for this.

He has written a blog post on his blog titled 'How to generate email icon...'

He has written plenty of 'how to' articles but I won't understand many. They are too much for my non-technical brain.

A few samples here:
How to add AdSense o your blog posts.
Quick Tips to drive traffic to your blog.
How to enable autorun in USB drives.

Once you visit his blog, you will bookmark and return repeatedly.

Special candies for Halloween.

Oct 31st is just five days away. The much awaited Halloween festival day is just around the corner. Have you all planned your gifts? If not already, why don’t you make this holiday something to remember for ever by giving candies wrapped in with special Halloween characters on it?






The idea of personalized candy wrapper belongs to Cheryl Salto who hit upon this brilliant concept of creating personalized candy wrappers for every occasions and festivals that included birthdays, wedding, Halloween, and Thanks giving and so on.

If you look at the range of birthday favors, you will never buy another box of candies anywhere. Children at the birthday party will squeal in delight at the beautiful looking smiley face on the candies. Children may again revive the history of collecting candy wrappers and the craze may even spread to all the continents in the world.

A special tool box for your vehicle.


No driver of any vehicle will ever take his vehicle out without proper tools; who knows what is in store on the highway?

Toll box supplied along with the vehicle is never sufficient. As we keep adding accessories to our cars, we may need more tools.

The Delta Aluminum Mid-Lid Crossover Toolbox comes with sturdy aluminum construction, stainless steel paddle locks, self-rising lids with a steady gas spring, and full weather stripping to keep the elements out.

Another unique feature of this tool box is you get a 40% larger opening than other tool boxes. This unique design opens up access to the middle of your box, helping you get the most out of the space you’ve got.

A gift for Christams from Nokia.

I changed my mind but it took me two years. But now I am a fan of Nokia mobile phones.

My first cell phone was Motorola. I bought it four years ago. Looking back, it must have been in a museum already. The current models from LG and Nokia are simply fantastic technologically.
The price of the mobile phones have come down drastically.

But whenever a new model is introduced, they fix a very high price. After a few months, another model pushes the price of the previous model down.

As per the blog post of James, Nokia is coming out with Nokia N810, Nokia’s Internet Tablet phone ( picture below) and the successor to the N800. It apparently will have the Mozilla browser, full GPS and room to expand storage to 10GB. There is also a huge 4″ screen and, the major improvement from the N800, a full qwerty keyboard. It is expected in the UK before Christmas and should retail for about £299 minus SIM.

Gratitude to: Mighty gadget Blog.

Wonderful help for webmasters.

I think I hold a record of joining the highest number of Google groups on that I stayed as a member for just a few minutes. (smile)

Somehow I don't find the time to read these Google groups though I find them very useful when I find them. The interest subsides within a few minutes after I browse through the discussions.

I hope to stay put in this webmasters help group at least for a week.

"This community is intended to be a comfortable and useful meeting place for English-speaking site owners* to ask questions and share information with each other and participating Google employees".

I read a topic on which I am really interested-it is about PR dropping to zero or lower page rank.
This is a sample to let you know what is in for webmasters.

Huge collection mobile phone art.

I have never seen such a vast collection of art for mobile phones.

I like beautiful looking wall papers for my mobile phone. My husband and son too crazy about it.
We all keep changing the wall papers and up load different images and tag them with names in the address book.

“My work has been shown in museums around the world,“ observed photographer Ashkan Sahihi. “But I am more excited by the populist implications of START MOBILE – this truly has the potential to make NEW ART accessible to EVERYONE.”

I would like to express my gratitude to Mashable.com for having introduced StartMobile, the directory for mobile ring tones and wallpapers.

High profit advertising method.

Whatever may be the available marketing methods in the Internet, direct mailing is still considered as the best way to reach customers.

When compared to various internet marketing ways such as classified advertising, PPC advertising or message board advertising, the cost of reaching the customers directly through mailing lists is costlier but at the same time more effective.

The conversion ratio is still the best in this proven method. Telemarketers are the biggest clients of Martin Worldwide-The Mailing Lists Company based in California because Martin Worldwide has built a reputation by offering innovative mailing list products to its clients.

Through their successful product named ResponseCom™, they offer over 100 demographic and psychographic categorized mailing lists.

They claim to posses a database of 290 million consumers which has been compiled painstakingly over a decade using several filters and confirmations.

The success of direct mail marketing can be attributed to two main aspects.

The first is that it attempts to send its messages directly to consumers, without the use of intervening media. This involves unsolicited commercial communication with consumers or businesses.

The second characteristic is that it is focused on driving purchases that can be attributed to a specific "call-to-action." Telemarketing companies solely bank on this valuable component while purchasing targeted mailing lists.

For more information on Martin Worldwide and its direct marketing products and services, please call (888) - 267-3545.

It is private which means your creation is not made public.

Another important feature is there are no ads. I think this may stop many using this service as there are other such websites with which they can earn some revenue through AdSense.




Back up with GMail drive.

I read a blog post just in time and it saved me Rs.2000.

I was about to buy a flash drive to back my important files and folders when I found out GMail drive which can be useful as a free online disk.

Silki's Web Tools is a blog that I read frequently. Yes, I admit, I have not visited her blog in the recent past.

Only I am the loser because I might have missed a lot of important information. Had I not visited today, I might not have known about the GMail drive and as I said, I would have unnecessarily Rs.2000.

"Gmail Drive, is a useful web tool, which allows you to use this space virtually as if it was available on your hard disk. You can save files, add folders, rename files, search files and delete them through Windows Explorer just like any other file on your computer. And the best part is that, these files are available to you from any other computer, which is connected to the Internet".

Thank you Silki.

The boss and you.

When you start for your office on everyday, you should be eagerly looking forward to it. You should sincerely like the challenges you face daily, derive satisfaction from finding solutions and when you leave the office at the end of the day, you should be whistling to yourself.

This will happen only when you have given your 100%. A nice and considerate boss will be an added factor to your happiness.

Shall we say only 50% of the office goers fit in the above category? The rest of the regular employees would always dream of becoming a boss themselves.

Which trip planner you depend on?

People mock at us for trivial reasons. Yes, I also did that due to ignorance.

I took upon my sister’s soft corner for short people; I amused myself on others’ inability to decide fast; I criticized my husband for his choice of English dictionary.

I did all these until I realized the folly of it. Everyone is entitled to their beliefs and trusts. When people searched blogs for true travel experiences, I chided them saying that they are trusting on vague facts and figures.

But, when I started blogging on places to see, I expected every reader of my blog to treat me as their travel guide and wanted them to post my blog entries on social search engines that focus on travel.

I now realize that blogs on travel are great resources to learn from people who have written about their true travel experiences.

For some of the best places to visit, I like to refer realtravel.com. It has ‘Editor’s picks’ that tells you about rare places in the world that many are not aware of. Yes, this is what I call as a true travel guide.

Another fantastic and unique feature that is not found in any other online travel guides is the facility to browse places based on the things you want to do such as wildlife viewing and horse riding.



I request you to visit just once realtravel.com and then decide whether it is worthy to bookmark or not.

My Bloglog changed log in details.

For quite sometime, I was not receiving any email messages from mybloglog.com
Due to other commitments, I also did not log in to it.

Yesterday, I had some free time and opened it but I was surprised to find out that I was asked to log into my yahoo account.

Since yahoo has taken over mybloglog.com, everybody was asked to log in via their yahoo account.
But my existing profile was intact and so were my contacts too.

But, I did not notice any other changes in it like blogcatalog.com

This is for your information.

A visit to the Jays world.

Relaxation is compulsory for all of us, be it a mental or physical relaxation.

In case of the latter, we lie down inert and let our body system recoup the spent energy.
For mental relaxation, we take our mind of from our work, our family and on anything that requires attention and focus on totally different that actually doesn't require any focus. (Smile)

For me, humor is the best choice. Whether a joke makes me laugh or not, I like reading anything humorous. A visit to the Jay's world serves the purpose. The blog is beautifully colored dotted with amusing pictures.

For example, I request you to read the blog post on "Education Man".

If you like it, share it.

Set your home to display Global Grind.

My home page is set to display my Google Reader so that I am not left out of the dark. I love reading news in various categories that is reported by Google News.

Though my main interest is blogging, I love to read anything about spirituality and self development.

In fact my blog on Laws of Universe receives more visitors daily when compared to my other blogs.

But at times, I set my home page to GlobalGrind.com, and customize my home page as per my interests. I do this mainly because for diversity. They too offer several feeds to my liking.

I listened to some podcast feeds and this really motivates me to start my podcast blog.

There are also some rare video clips on myriad categories.

What is a Style Feeder?

Style Feeder is your personal shopping search engine and one can call it as social shopping website which means it is a way to find, share, and keep track any products that you like and get to know who else like your list.

For example, you want to find a mosquito repellent that emits no odour, you can either find a related on their home page or search for it. If there is already a tag for your wish list, then it means somebody had bought the product and thus created a tag.

You can also find all the products your favorite celebrity likes or any of your online contacts has tagged.

If you like something you have found on Style Feeder, you can click the ‘plus’ button from a list of items, or the “Copy to Style Feed” button on. You can also add product that you find anywhere by using the browser button.


Express your style on your blog, web site, or on any of your social page like Friendster or MySpace.

Diabetes Monitor.

I am free of ailments but I have bookmarked Diabetes Monitor exclusively for my diabetic husband. This is the first time, I am bookmarking a health related website.

I am compelled to gain in depth knowledge about diabetes because all my family members are diabetic. Diabetes Monitor is full of information about diabetes, new medicines, blood sugar detecting devices, latest insulin injections and so on.

I can also ask questions and get answers from other members. May be, after sometime, I can also answer questions and share my knowledge about diabetes.

This website is frequently updated. This is great website with plenty of resources for diabetic patients and their care takers.

Find jobs in London.

It is my humble suggestion for all of you. If you are about to move to new place due career change, retirement or for education, always do a little bit of research in the cyberspace to dig out a handful of websites that give you plenty of information about the place you are moving to.

Ok, let me make this post short and sweet. In one single website, you get to know about the available jobs, real estate, companionship, used goods for sale and many different service providers. The website is Gumtree.

Let us say that someone you know is moving to Edinburgh, Scotland along with his entire family. You can help him out by asking him to make a note of this web page where jobs in Edinburgh are listed.

Six months back, I emailed a friend of mine the right website where he can look for a teaching job in Edinburgh. When my friend emailed me back that I can also help him find out a teaching job in Aberdeen, I was able to reply immediately with the required information.

Gumtree offers this huge store house of information for several cities across the world that includes Australia, U.K. New Zealand, South Africa and the U.S.

How to change the blog owner.

I am forever indebted to few persons in the Internet and blogosphere especially.

I keep expressing my gratitude to them. I would like to name a few here.

The first person is the blog author of Mashable.com and the another is Vin of Beta Blogger for Dummies.

Today, Vin solved a major block for me through his blog post on the subject line-'How to change the blog owner'.

It is unnecessary for me to write about the background for my predicament. But I am relieved greatly and I sent my gratitude to Vin and I am sure it will be picked by him from the cosmos.

The best online coaching website.

I am racing against time. I have so much preparation to do for my M.Phil exam on Saturday. Besides I have to prepare the test paper on Algebra for the school final students. I am conducting this test this afternoon.

Amidst all this hectic activity, I promised my colleague that I will definitely look up on this online tutoring web site and give my feedback.

Somehow, I squeezed in a few minutes and visited Tutorvista.com. The first impression I got when I landed on their home was excitement because all my favorite math subjects were listed.

Though the price for unlimited all subjects tuition package is beyond many of my students, I can ask one or two students who can afford, to avail their concession offer of $24.99 package for unlimited all subjects tuition. But I must remember to tell them that this is for the first month only.

I have also noted that they operate separately for Indians. As my most of students belong to the C.B.S.E. pattern, this website is also offering online classes for them.

Job openings in Europe.

I think this is a blessing in disguise. There was a power failure for about two hours yesterday.
This stopped my blogging task and I was getting edgy because I had to complete a couple of blog posts in a few hours.

To while away the time, I used my laptop that had about 20 minutes of battery time. Aimlessly browsing on job related websites, I came upon Considerati, that lists all the technical job openings in Europe.

Yes, know I am not eligible to apply for any post because I am a nontechie. I write this blog post for the benefit of you dear reader.

I read several lucrative offers. Grab one if you are up to it, else, please pass it on.
