    Ajay D’Souza – Netvibes Translator

    Had expressed interest in translating Netvibes. Got the invitation today for the same. The languages available are Hindi, Marathi and Tamil. However, the catch is that the language has to be in written in their respective fonts. Well I don’t know Tamil so that rules it out and my Marathi could well do with some brushing up. So I have started translating the Hindi portion, atleast whatever I am able to so far. I was able to find a good English to Hindi font, so to say website called QuillPad. It works via phonetics. e.g. you can type kya kar rahe hain aap? which means What are you doing? and…

    Computer Sunday; Study Monday

    Had two completely antithetical days yesterday and today (actually, that would be day before and yesterday, given the time of this post). Awoke early Sunday morning and went for the 8.30am mass for which we were singing. I haven’t awoken at 7.30am since a long long time and as a result I ended up feeling extremely drowsy during mass and a good portion of the morning after that. Would normally have hit the bed for a while, but

    Flickr Pro or Gallery 2? Help me decide

    And once again I get into the great dilema of deciding what do I use to run my photo album. The last time I was in a similar dilema was when I had to choose between Gallery2 or Coppermine. I’ve always been toying with the idea of integrating the photo gallery within this blog itself. Everybody remembers this URL and it makes sense. I can do this with both Gallery2 and Flickr, however with the current installation of G2 on a seperate domain is not possible. This means hosting Gallery2 on this blog, which is something I am not very keen of doing just yet. I had been looking at…

    Now PR5

    It has been a while since I had a PR5 rank on my blog. After I removed the WWW, my pagerank plummeted. The rank dropped to 3 and rose to 4 after a while. With the latest pagerank update that took place yesterday, I noticed that the rank had jumped up to 5. 🙂 I’m glad that my Donate page is still PR6, while the Donations Received page is a PR5. If you would like a link to your site on that page, you know what to do 😉

    This Past Week in Ajay’s Life

      It sure has been a while since I visited Pizza Hut, but it was a welcome change when I visited it on Thursday. They have introduced a new range of pizzas which is not yet displayed online. Well, they didn’t turn out to be extraordinary, and definitely didn’t look like the pictures on the menu :O Advertising 😛 Mass was good and so was our singing. U. Conrad asked me to sing the response. Hey! I’m not a solo singer! But, I can definitely “say” the responses 😉 Sunday was the AIMCAT as usual. This time it wasn’t as good as I hoped. Ran out of time for Maths.…
