Lord of the links - IV

After a long long time, here I am again with my Lord of the Links series. Here are some new links I found out useful.

mouthshut - Compare prices, read consumer written product reviews on movies, music, books, cars, digital cameras and millions of other products and services.
Flock is an amazing new web browser that makes it easier to share media and connect to other people online.
writely is a web word processor. You can create, edit and share files from anywhere without anything to download. Moreover it is secure and free!
wikimapia is similar to google earth but only difference is that it is online and you don't need to download anything to use it.
box provides free online file storage upto 1 GB (free). You can also upgrade to 5GB for which you'll need to pay. You can access to your files from any computer and share it also.
Search simultaneously in yahoo, google and other search engines. As a matter of fact, this site supports charity and hence you help someone indirectly by searching using their service.

I'll post some more useful links shortly in my Lord of the links series.

I got this mail today... found it good and think it is worthy enough to be posted here.

I want to thank all my friends and other unknown people who have forwarded chain letters to me in 2003, 2004 & 2005 and 2006.

Because of your kindness:

  • I stopped drinking Coca-Cola after I found out that it's good only for removing toilet stains.
  • I stopped going to the movies for fear of sitting on a needle infected with AIDS
  • I smell like a wet dog since I stopped using deodorants because they cause cancer.
  • I also stopped answering the phone for fear that they may ask me to dial a stupid number and then I get a phone bill from hell with calls to Uganda , Singapore and Tokyo.
  • I also stopped drinking water outside for fear that I will get sick from the rat shit and urine.
  • When I go to parties, I don't look at any girl, no matter how hot she is, for fear that she will take me to a hotel, drug me, then take my kidneys and leave me taking a nap in a bathtub full of ice.
  • I also donated all my savings to the Amy Bruce account. A sick girl that was about to die in the hospital about 7,000 times. (Poor girl! she's been 7 since 1993...)
  • My free Nokia phone never arrived and neither did the free passes for a paid vacation to Disneyland.
  • Made some Hundred wishes before forwarding those Dalai Lama, Ganesh Vandana, Tirupathi Balaji pics etc..
    Now most of those "Wishes" are already married (to someone else)!
  • You can add your own notes based on your similar experience and send them to your friends.

If ORKUT deletes my account, it doesn't matter BUT PLEASE DON'T SEND me "Orkut is deleting accounts: Due to sudden rush..." Otherwise I'll delete my E-Mail account!

With almost 0 scraps and emails, I thought of surfing the deep web for a while. As I went on, I found this:

The Indian Institutes of Technology is another name for IIT, which is the acronym for Institute of Infinite Tension, Institute of Indian Technology, etc. They institutes of so-called national importance set up by the Indian Parliament at seven campuses across India, decided purely on merits of political alliances of the ruling party. It was the mastermind of a certain Jawaharlal Nehru to reduce the average intelligence of Indians that led to the establishments of these institutes. Just like Zion in Matrix, where 3% of the people who do not accept the Matrix are gathered together to prevent dissent as a whole, IITs were formed by the Government of India to gather at one place the 2% of the intellegensia of the country and dumb them down. There is a similar prophecy that The One would appear one day to lead these students to their destiny…


What the hell? An encyclopedia... describing IIT in such a manner? I almost decided to write a post on this matter. A hate post infact. But what is this? This is not some kinda of encyclopedia. This is infact an UNCYCLOPEDIA. This is how they describe themselves:

,p>Uncyclopedia is an encyclopedia full of misinformation and utter lies. You might say it puts the "psych!" in "encyclopedia". It's sort of like Congress or Parliament, but unlike Congress or Parliament, we do have a sense of humor. Nonetheless, this is one of the only factual pages, before everything turns into a puddle of utter confusion and disarray. Savor it. And for the love of Sophia, we know you like disarray, (and confusion) but stop adding confusion to this non-confusing page which leads to confusion, and possibly disarray. Which we wish to stop. Non-non-confusion, that is. Not disarray. Or is it the other way around?

Happy september

Here goes my first Post of this month. The time seems to travel faster day by day. I can't believe that it has been a month since I joined IITB. May be the speed of light is decaying or whatever but, the time really seems to travel faster as never before. Hmmm… what to write and what not? I'm not able to decide. Signing out…
