While coding in PHP and Open Source Technologies i always used to see this date -'January 1, 1970'. Always wondered what could be the reason this date has been set as default, and some research and reading this is what I understood.

How will you login to to google accounts at same time from same machine? May be can use two browsers..

Again what if we want to use Gtalk to chat and at same time use two accounts, It happened to me 1 year ago when i was in my home and logged into Gtalk in my personnal gmail account. For some purpose I needed to chat with my senior at office and wanted to open one more instance of the chat but it was opening only one instance. Didn't find any solution to chat with my senior and continued a browser based chat.

Disposable Emails

Disposable EmailNow a days most of the forums asks for user verification/validation through emails.

How will you trust the authenticity of the site, will they spam my inbox, will they sell my email address to third party?

Don't worry... there's something called disposable emails. Get some random email ids which lasts for a small time duration.
On visiting the site you will be given a temporary email id (some junk email)  and a mail box which you can for use any purpose... there will be a life time given for that email ids, some sites gives 10 minutes, some 60 minutes etc. You can even extend the life time in some of the sites.
During this life time you can get messages to your inbox, reply to the messages.

Freecycle Bangalore

Freecycle BangaloreUnused gadgets, books and almost everything which you wont use for long time may go to garbage only.. How about giving it to some one who may need it. As it was no use for you why don't give it for free.
Mt friend Ravi Ghosh was telling about the Freecycle group on web and he created a Facebook group for people to freecycle. Nice initiative by Ravi to bring Freecycle Bangalore to bring to Facebook which made more freecycling opportunities.

Wiki says - "Freecycling, or free recycling, is the act of giving away usable unwanted items to others instead of disposing of them in landfills"

Ravi says always - "Rule for unsed - If you have not used it for last 6 months, you would probably never use it and never can sell it at a price worth selling.".

About Freecycle:
Freecycle Bangalore is an unofficial FB group based on the concept of freecycling.


WHAT'S THE PURPOSE: Give goods that you don't need/use anymore to someone who might make use of it at no cost, absolutely FREE.

Find the group here:
also go through the About and Rules and Regulations sections before you start freecycling.


Few funny posts happened when the group was started... some thought its all about giving free Cycles  and was requesting for cycles. One other thing which made us laugh was a para in the about section which stated -  "A REQUEST: This group is intended to create a forum for exchange of virtually anything, except babies, husbands, wives, arms, drugs, and bombs but at no cost. It has to be FREE."  . LOL except babies, husbands,wives... :)

Start Freecycling and once used, if you feel its of no much use to you... freecycle again.

Why did i start blogging?

Why did i start Blogging?
Well I don't have a perfect answer for this question.. :). i had my domain registered for long time and haven't used it for long time.
Only used the domain for testing and implementing my PHP/MySql codes. But major of the time it remained unattended and unused.
Ya sometimes also used to send large files by uploading them in the web space and send the link to download. I checked the memory usage and 20% of the storage is used by files which didn't have any use to my domain..
Being associated with web and software i thought why don't i connect my domain to Blogger. Yes i configured it and ... then...
Again unattended for long time, will sit on writing something but cant even proceed more than 1 or 2 paragraphs- so realized cant be a good blogger.

Now again feeling that I can express so many things through the blog. Not to impress but to express myself and I decided  to blog about whatever comes to mind.I sometimes feel like posting some pics and write about it, some programming stuff , some travel and lot.... If i feel like writing/posting am going to do that.. otherwise the space is going to be empty.
Planning to collect memories and put up. Lets see how it proceeds...
