Microsoft has a strategy to sell their Xbox 360 consoles at throwaway prices and make it up by selling overpriced accessories.
I wanted to get a VGA Cable by which I could could connect my Xbox 360 to my monitor (Fights over the TV is quite normal in my place). I looked at the price tag of the Official VGA cable ($40!). At the end of of the its just a cable and it doesn’t deserve $40. So, I got myself [...]

Like many others I started on Blogger but then, I wanted a little more freedom. So, went on to a self hosted wordpress. There are a lot of advantages with wordpress like SEO, customizability and most importantly freedom to do anything you want.
It is a preconceived notion that migrating from Blogger to WordPress would destroy your previously acquired pagerank, google juice, traffic, image (picasa) [...]

TCS IT wiz is a premier IT quiz hosted by pickbrain, Giri Balasubramanium. He is probably the most lively host in the world. No wonder, he’s famous. If you are a internet junkie this is the place to be.
Many of my friends and family told me to give it a shot.I thought I should too. So I teamed up with my trusty techy friend, Pramodh. As I entered the venue, I saw a huge gathering of boys and girls, [...]

Now, I am on a shared hosting with limited bandwidth. When I was in Blogger, I didn’t have to worry about space and most particularly bandwidth. Blogger would automatically post my pictures to Picasa albums. Picasa albums provides us with 1 GB space and unlimited bandwidth. Yea, you heard it right, unlimited! And guess what, its free!
In a blog, images take up the most bandwidth. You might save [...]

The usual computer drama, this time, was not very usual. My dad punched my laptop because of my “computer madness” (as they call it). Next moment, this thing was sitting before me saying “Hi dude, you’re screwed!”. 🙂
Anyways, I called up Toshiba service centre, that guy lied that it would cost Rs. 10,000 – 15,000 (Thats around $200-$300!). Then, Mr. Google told me that it would just [...]

Migrating from Blogger to WordPress was fun! Getting the thumnails working was one problem though. Thanks to TimThumb Beta script, this problem is s-o-l-v-e-d.
You ask me what what’s new with TimThumb beta? By, default wordpress doesn’t make thumbnails of offsite images. This script can make thumbnails (server side resizing) of offsite images. And…don’t worry, no one can misuse [...]

This is useless. Meta tags are deprecated. Off you go, now.
Ah, I’m here to break my drought of posts. This time, its a little special. I’ve made a small program which will help you add META tags to individual blogger pages.
With this program, you can avoid the hassles of retrieving every URL, pasting it into the code etc. You just enter your Blogspot Address, the number of posts and are good [...]
