Where to save files after downloading??


You must have noticed that whenever you download a particular file, by default, it is saved in ‘Download’ folder of your PC. In IE7, it’s not the case. You can browse and choose the path. Whereas in Firefox, it’s not the case. It is saved in ‘Download’ folder, by default. Now it’s not the time to get irritate because you can define your path to save that file.

This is how we do it.

1). Go to Tools menu.

2). Select the Options option.

3). Select General option.

4). Select the Always ask me where to save files button.

And now you can save wherever you want…..ENJOY DOWNLOADING.

MAYAN CALENDAR: Does not end in 2012


Chill people, chill. The world is not going to end in 2012, stated by astronomer Philip Plait .

According to him, the Mayan calendar does not end in 2012, at all. It is like the odometer in your vehicle, as each section of it reaches 9, flips to 0, the next number to start the cycle again. So that when all the numbers again reach 0, the last number will change from 0 to 1, and that’s how a new cycle will start.

But one question arose in my mind that why that cycle ends up only in 2012??? I found it.

The date December 21st, 2012 A.D. (13.0.0.0.0 in the Long Count), represents an extremely close conjunction of the Winter Solistice Sun with the crossing point of the equator of the Milky Way and the path of the Sun, what that ancient Maya recognized as the Sacred Tree.

This is an event that has been coming to resonance very slowly over thousands of years. It will come resolution at exactly 11.11 am GMT.

Mayan scholars have been attempting to correlate the Long Count with the Western Gregorain Calendar. And there has been massive variation in it. In the early 1905, Goodman suggested a correlation only 3 days from the most popular one today, known as the GMT correlation. It was then finalized in 1950 and puts the start of the Great Cycle (day 0.0.0.0.0 ) on 11th August 3114 BC and the end-date (known as 13.0.0.0.0) as 21st December 2012.

Below you can see the image of signs used.



Remember the time and date. It’s 11.11 am and 21-12-2012.

Disable the right-click functionality


Sometimes your friend(intentionally or unintentionally) changes the properties of your desktop or creates unnecessary folders on it and leave you in anger. You also would have liked to do the same in his computer. Instead of doing these things and wasting your time in foolishness, just disable the right-click function by following below steps.

1) Click the Start button and type regedit in Run option and hit enter

2)  Locate the location to:

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Explorer

3) Here in right side panel, right click to create a new DWORD value with the name NoViewContextMenu (it is case sensitive), then assign number 1 in value data box.

Now close the registry and shut down your pc to take action. Just change the value to ‘1’ in order to enable it.

Opera 10.1 Released


When it comes to web-browser, I just jump into the “HOW” portion of it. The all new ‘Opera 10.1’ is released and it has got something better than the others!!!

Features in Opera 10.1

1) User Interface: As you can see, Opera has a fairly nice and polished interface giving a glossy look!!!

2) Browsing : Opera seems reasonably fast and smooth. The UI did made me to feel like ‘shitt’ as it didn’t  hang at any point during my day of using it. The RAM usage ranges from as low as 20 mb when running in the system tray, to up to 245 with several tabs open.

3) Unite: Is it a joke??? I mean how can be your browser, a server????? But I was wrong. They made it all. Unite turns your computer into a personal server. You can host your own website, stream your media from anywhere, and more. Opera supplies you with a devicename.username.operaunite.com address for each of your computers.

First service:- File Sharing made for sharing docs,photos or anything else. It really doesn’t work for sharing with complete strangers, since there is no special p2p protocol involved, just a direct download from your computer. You can even set a password to protect the files from unauthorized access.

Next is Media Player. Just set the folder to your music folder, set the password (if you want to), and you can stream your music from other computers, direct from yours. Want to share a totally awesome track with a friend? No problem. The service does have it’s glitches.

My first mobile with “camera”!!


If you are looking for a cell phone with camera and mp3 player, with a budget of 5000 bucks, this cell has it all.

Yeah man!! Today I bought a new Nokia 7210 Supernova.

I kept thinking about the new cell phone for the last 3 days as the other was breathing it’s last moments.

So I came with my dad to a store named ‘Desh Pardesh’. I was so much excited about it. I consulted the lady over there and told my requirements about the phone. She budged a little as I think she don’t know what the hell I was talking about. I think today was her first day. Hahaha….

Following are it’s features:

1) A 2.0 mega pixel camera(can proudly say that) without flash.

2) 1 GB miniSD memory card which is quite enough for me.

3) Bluetooth 2.0

4) Earphones

5) Java

6) Audio and Video Player

7) FM radio(just to keep it in the game, so that they  don’t feel like losing everything)
