If error reporting in XP is bugging you then turn it off.

When a system error occurs in XP, a little dialog box appears asking if you want to report the error to Microsoft.

To disable error reporting, follow these directions:

1. Right-click My Computer and choose Properties.

2. Click the Advanced tab on your System Properties dialog box.

3. Click the Error Reporting button on the Advanced tab.

4. Place a checkmark next to "Disable error reporting."

5. Leave the other radio button unchecked next to the text labeled, "But notify me when critical errors occur."

6. Click OK.

Hope you loved this useful post!!!!

Motion Portrait is a cool digital animation technology that allows an ordinary digital photograph of a face into a living 3D animation. It works by automatically recognizing the eyes, nose and mouth and animating these creates a whole range of emotions that can be manipulated.

Uses of Motion Portrait could be for avatars, games and advertisements (e.g. how you would look with different hairstyles). More animated demos can be found here and here.

1 videoclip of Motion Portrait application follows....

Steps to block websites fom you computer.....
1] Browse C:\WINDOWS\system32\drivers\etc
2] Find the file named "HOSTS"
3] Open it in notepad
4] Under " localhost" Add , and that site will no longer be accessable.
5] Done!

Example : localhost

- is now unaccessable

For every site after that you want to add, just add "1" to the last number in the internal ip ( and then add like before.


This also works with banner sites, just find the host name of the server with the banners and do the same thing .

Hope this small tutorial could keep you going in simple way of blocking websites.

The flight which collided WTC was Q33N.

In notepad type Q33N ,change font size to 72 and font to Wingdings.I tried this one out and I was really amazed by what I saw!

This is what I saw!!!!

A friend of mine in the mechanical department introduced his classmate named Premanand with the tag "The scientist of our class".I wondered why he is calling him so....
But after speaking for about 10 minutes with him I understood he is indeed a scientist.
He has discovered a new force named Iota force!!!
Now you may wonder what the hell is Iota force....
First we must brush up with Kepler's laws of planetary motion to understand this Iota force.

The second law attracts the attention....
It states that"A line joining a planet and the sun sweeps out equal areas during equal intervals of time."

How is this possible???

Kepler says that when earth is closer to sun it revolves faster and when earth is away from sun the speed decreases.
This was my knowledge before the meet with that scientist....
He said he has a different theory.(He says it is wrong)
Imagine a circle.With 2 points A and B in it.Such that A is closer to the center and B is away from the center.(As shown in the below fig)

Rotate the circle 360 degree(one complete rotation).Now velocity at the point A is less than velocity at the point B(velocity=dist.travelled/time taken and A travells lesser distance!!).
So it is not acceptable that Earth moves faster when it is closer to sun(as per the above proof).There must be some other force to make the Earth move faster!It is the so called IOTA FORCE.

He presented a paper on this theory!!!
This is the abstract of his paper....

This paper named “Iota force” propose the existence of new kind of force acting on
earth basically due to the rotation of the sun. Calculated results showed that the
centrifugal force that the earth posses merely equals the gravity of the sun if it is assumed

But since earth is a particle of the gravitational sphere spread by the sun, it
becomes highly necessary for the earth to balance as the rotating particle in the disc as
the sun (virtually the gravitational field) is rotating. But the calculations clearly showed
that the earth is more unlikely to be a particle in the disc as it is revolving at a much
slower pace than it should be. It clearly indicates that there is an unrevealed component
of gravity that is vital in keeping the earth in its orbit.

This paper states that it should be the rotational force that is opposing the main
gravitational field and keeps its out of the rotational effect of the gravitational field of the
sun. It is so termed ‘Iota Force’. But it is noted that the earth is slowing down in rotation
as the time is increasing and hence the Iota force actually decreases, which means that the
earth is becoming more and more as a particle of the gravitational sphere of the sun.
Based on this concept the paper aims at explaining the expansion of the solar
system, there by the expansion of the universe.

Does the IOTA FORCE really exist???
I agree with Premanand...
What do you say????

There are a few things that can be done in times of grave emergencies. Your mobile phone can actually be a life saver or an emergency tool for survival. Check out the things that you can do with it:


The Emergency Number worldwide for Mobile is 112. If you find yourself out of the coverage area of your mobile; network and there is an emergency, dial 112 and the mobile will search any existing network to establish the emergency number for you, and interestingly this number 112 can be dialed even if the keypad is locked. Try it out.

Have you locked your keys in the car?

Does your car have remote keyless entry? This may come in handy someday. Good reason to own a cell phone: If you lock your keys in the car and the spare keys are at home, call someone at home on their mobile phone from your cell phone.
Hold your cell phone about a foot from your car door and have the person at your home press the unlock button, holding it near the mobile phone on their end. Your car will unlock. Saves someone from having to drive your keys to you. Distance is no object. You could be hundreds of miles away, and if you can reach someone who has the other 'remote' for your car, you can unlock the doors (or the trunk).
Note: It didn't work fine! I tried it out and it did not unlock my car!

Hidden Battery Power

Imagine your mobile battery is very low. To activate, press the keys *3370# Your mobile will restart with this reserve and the instrument will show a 50% increase in battery. This reserve will get charged when you charge your mobile next time.
Note: This too didn't work fine!

How to disable a STOLEN mobile phone?

To check your Mobile phone's serial number, key in the following digits on your phone * # 0 6 #
A 15 digit code will appear on the screen. This number is unique to your handset. Write it down and keep it somewhere safe. When your phone get stolen, you can phone your service provider and give them this code. They will then be able to block your handset so even if the thief changes the SIM card, your phone will be totally useless. You probably won't get your phone back, but at least you know that whoever stole it can't use/sell it either. If everybody does this, there would be no point in people stealing mobile phones.
Note:This works well!

Hope you enjoyed reading this post!!!!

Captcha is an acronym for Completely Automated Public Turing test to tell Computers And Humans Apart and are used to prevent automated software from spamming the website. A captcha has an algorithm to show different new challenges which requires real human intelligence to solve. However some captchas goes beyond the normal point and to some extent proves to be too difficult to solve and some are just downright hilarious.

Don’t you just love it when you outsmart the teachers....
