Back on Twitter


Due to lack of usage and features present in Twitter previously I quitted and shut-down my twitter account once and for all in early 2012.  Currently I am back in twitter for the reason of analysing features added to it lately which I found hashtag interesting. I was lucky in creating the twitter account profile with the same name which I was having previously and that was fortunate. Honestly speaking to all the people who are reading this post, I am currently in with certain busy personal stuffs, Will be very soon getting touch with all my subscriptions.

Have a wonderful New Year 2014 🙂

Browser speed inside slow computer


I was having a Old 8 year old PC with Configuration of Intel Pentium 4 processor, 256MB RAM, 40GB HDD running Windows XP.

I currently got my PC upgraded to Intel Core i3, 2GB RAM, 500GB HDD running Windows 7. But for more than 5 years I was having a faster internet connection. I did upgrading PC last December 2012. I didn’t update it in my blog.

And, I specifically need to tell the world one thing which I noted in web browsers with regard to slow computers (Take my Old computer configuration as example).

 I perfectly felt “Mozilla Firefox” far better browser than “Google Chrome”.

When you open Google Chrome working with multiple tabs, you can notice multiple threads of tasks running in Task manager, whereas with regard to “Mozilla Firefox” It has been designed to run tasks with one thread of process to be shown in task manager. So, basically Chrome tries to occupy more memory and when it does it fumbles a lot, I had a many personal experience guys. Firefox does the job of occupying smoothly and of course I am damn sure guys even you can notice, despite Chrome is best for working fast, It is not designed for slow computers. “The world will never run behind slow computers or slow processing devices, but I am just telling the fact about the test result truth“, it’s just a thing which Firefox is better than Chrome for 256MB RAM”.

The minimum working RAM configuration for both Firefox and Chrome is 256MB. When I considered testing I landed in this particular performance results. I found Firefox better than Chrome.

Firefox is the Winner

Firefox is the Winner

One again I like to quote my favourite line here:

“The world will never run behind slow computers or slow processing devices, but I am just telling the fact about the test result truth“

Will be going for Job


I am extremely sorry for myself for not getting sufficient time to blog for these many months. I was finishing my college days and Of-course I have a good news. I will be very soon going for a job. Just few more days ahead. Happy to tell that, I will be very soon earning my living.

In India people take care of children until they get educated to a certain level. After that when the parents get retired from their job voluntarily or due to age factors allotted by the norms of the company, the children will take care of the parents forever.

I heard that in some/many of the countries after a persons attains 18 years of age, the parents will ask their children what job have you decided to go for?

Only because of this particular fact, I was giving a brief lecture about Indian families.

Warm-up your Laptop periodically


Hi fellas. Its been really feeling good to share another thing about electronics from my side.:-)

Recently I bought a laptop which is running Window 8 in March 2013.

LAPTOP CONFIGURATION:

Intel Core i5 processor, 4GB RAM, 500GB HDD and 1GB Graphic Card running Windows 8.

Windows 8 definitely features good things related to less power consumption and I have perfectly analysed that stuff, It really consume less power compared to the previous version of Windows.

Its good configuration so you can’t expect computer to get hanged when running Windows 8.

Like my previous message of a peculiar occasion which occurred with my tablet. This time it’s with my laptop.

I had an occasion where I signed out and signed in inside from the lockscreen of Windows 8.

During that particular mean time I had my system hanged possibly due to mismanagement of memory which unfortunately happened.

After many analysis I did with working with it, I had my only possibility of switching off the power of system and nothing else. Even the hibernate doesn’t work with the frozen screen,

After I did this stuff shocking news in my next boot up. Its blue screen error where I could see the text “Windows is corrupt needs repair, when it automatically rebooted and then automatically does the job of disc repair.

After It got proceeded fortunately windows successfully logged in.

And after that it was working fine.

And after I analysed stuffs  with my knowledge behind the software functionality and mechanism which I have, What I found was despite I have a good configuration PC I wasn’t playing games and stuffs which requires full use of resources and I have also already told you guys that I wasn’t a ever a computer gamer in my previous blog posts. That was the thing hurting the computer. The hardware limited itself at that particular situation to be some sort of mode, probably energy efficient mode would limited full usage of CPU skills(That’s the possible thing).

So, The bones of the laptop computer (in comparison with human body J) needed warm-ups.

So what I did was I filled the memory of the 4 GB  RAM with all the stuffs available in the computer.

Repeatedly opening the same programs to just fill the memory, I filled the entire RAM memory with apps continuously and kept my computer for 20 minutes. The laptop was discharging the power at 1 percentage per minute,

I filled the entire 4GB memory and made full utilization of multitasking

I filled the entire 4GB RAM memory and made full utilization of multitasking

After that I felt my PC far optimised when restarted. It’s not the simple configuration which is responsible for making the computer not frozen, Since it’s a laptop computer it has possibility for the computer to reserve itself to use less power consumption, Hence frozen screen or any other state like these things occurred have possibility to occur and it did for me.

Have a good fay optimizing your computer if you feel it got slow to, Even filling the memory and making the computer to periodically warm-ups is a necessity.

Cartoon Channel


                In my childhood days. Until 1999, we were having black and white television at our home. At that point of time I was not watching cartoons shows since that channel won’t be coming on our cable TV due to the reason that the number of channels is just 30.

                My grand parents during those days were staying in a separate home at my father’s hometown. During that time, we will eventually visit their home when we have occasion. It was also an extra happiness that at their home it was colour TV present along with Cartoon Channel.

                My favorite cartoon show is Tom and Jerry and I knew each and every person in the world have heard about its popularity…:-)

                In India, there is one channel which was particularly popular “CARTOON NETWORK”.

Finally during the year of 2000 when I was doing my fourth standard, at my age of 9, my father bought a colour Television for our home. I started watching Cartoons happily at my home in that specific channel…:-)

Typing in Keyboard


I have been using my computer for the past eight years and. I like to quote about the fact that Blogging has definitely increased my typing speed . But let me tell u one thing, I am an aspiring Geek person. I mean it’s my ultimate passion in life to be a Geek. What computer geek have the skill is to type the text in the computer without looking at the keyboard which I am not doing. I have a decent typing speed to my satisfaction. But if a person being a Geek doesn’t knew to type in keyboard without looking at it, It doesn’t makes sense. So, I recently started using Typing tutor applications freely available web a. Its more like using the either hand for me for the normal person. I felt like using my left hand for doing normal work (I am right-handed person).

So, it’s also a necessary for a person who is aspiring to be a geek to have the skill of typing in the keyboard without looking at it. I am on the way in the path of necessity and it is the sense. 🙂

My first day of internet browsing:


It was a Sunday and I remember that and there is a point to note that I can use internet only when my dad is not present because he desired that he  have more pay large telephone bills since we were having dial up connection at that point of time.Here comes the story of the first day of my internet. I was sitting in-front of the PC aimless what shall I do with internet.

I was greatly interested in tweaking Windows XP with control panel,  and many other various settings. In many occasions there are many places where you can be dragged to a browser. When there was no internet installed in my home . Internet explorer will says “You are currently offline“. I analyzed that stuff in the internet in my first visit. And what I did was checking more themes online stuff if the Themes category of Windows XP. Sweet memories to remember. It was in the time period of January 2006.

The first website I visited for a purpose:


It was the first summer vacation holidays of my 9th Standard academic year completion. An I woke up little late  in the morning, freshened myself and settled with my computer to fulfill a stuff what my neighbour asked me to do a thing for my system.  At that point of time I was learning Internet stuffs from the person. He asked me to download “Download Accelerator” to my PC from the website..

http://www.downloads.com

The entire website is now changed as http://www.downloads.cnet.com.

I visited the site. I found internet convenient to use and i was gradually gaining confidence,. nothing seems to be weird since everything is just the same GUI. Wow that’s great I said to myself when the website loaded.

I was amazed to see the word “Games“. . .I was questioning myself do games here in internet for downloadable and free.??
Then i clicked the tab inside the site.

I could see a list of fields and showing all the details for the game list such as OS, license, file-size , etc..
I just clicked a category as “Arcade” game, chosen the first game in the list to download and fulfilled steps to download game. I downloaded the game in my PC which is the first game I downloaded form the internet. I was initiating the game and   surprised to  knew free game are available in internet Wow, I said to myself and this is the screen short of the first game which I downloaded  form the internet.

"Arcade Gamer Pack"

“Arcade Gamer Pack”

My favorite PC game


The passion for this game started when I was a budding computer user in 2006. I was interested in tweaking the different components of a software tool. Starting from control panel, Windows Media player equalizer, etc. At that time period I was having some arcade game given by one of my friends of my dad.

There are plenty of clones for this game in the internet and one of the most popular clones in the internet was DXBALL. Most of the readers by now knew about this famous clone of the game I guess. Yes, Arcanoid is my favorite game with PC. When I started the program and start playing the game for the first time, I found the mouse sensitivity for the game to be too high as I was a budding mouse control expert too; I couldn’t control the mouse easily. Then after plenty of attempts and good practice it helped me with not only mouse control but also mind reflexes. Do you agree that it’s a mind game yes I do agree. We need to judge wisely to protect the ball.

In DXBALL, the different components used in the game such as music, sound effects, are present in the particular name of the components used in the game such as for ball bounce, Ball hit, etc and I was interested in editing the sound effects which are in the format of .WAV. They can be edited using sound recorder and also why not I can replace with Pinball sound effects too. I did those kind of stuffs..

In the year 2007, I came across a website called

http://www.caiman.com

This site was a famous small game website where one can download plenty of arcade games from it. Most of the games are small. Even today I found the particular website to be identical with the same web interface what I have seen in the time period of 2007, January.

In that website there are as many as 83 arcanoid games available free to download. At that point of time I aw using dial up connection so I could download only 4 to 6 KBs per second. And on the other hand I must use the internet when my dad is not present.

In this case I mostly download games only in the file size up to 8GB. I enjoyed most of the arcanoid games in the site.

I enjoyed a trial version of a sensationally programmed arcanoid game in the same year using a trick and the game is “Ricochet Extreme”. The trial version of the game can be run only for 2 hours in the calculated time time period of how much minutes the game has been used.

I used a particular trick for that 2 hours restriction. The trick is Firstly when I install the game. I will set a system restore point in the system with a particular name. When two hours finishes, I will go to safe mode and I will make my computer to land at the restore point which I set when I installed the game. And when I initiate the game again in my windows start up Two hours recharged again. Thus my most favourite PC game made me do many enthusiastic things with my PC.

TV Videogames of childhood


Before I like to say something about this post I like to say that I am not a gamer with PC. Some of you might have predicted that while reading the title itself that I am have not written GTA 4 or Need for Speed.. 🙂

Here is my story. I enjoy video game in my childhood days very much. My favorite among them includes Contra, Double Dragon and the list moves on. I like games under all kinds of genre at that point of time. 🙂

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

My PC was bought in the year 2004. And I am happy to say that since I consider video-game as best gaming electronics I didn’t used my computer to play games. 🙂

Now, It  helped me much. Actually many of my friends who had enjoyment in video-games gets easily addicted to most popular PC games like Need For Speed,Grand Theft Auto and whatever they say.

I firstly didn’t considered computer as a gaming device which helped me much in using it for many beneficial moves. .:-)

My computer configuration is 8 years old:

Intel Pentium 4 Processor,256MB RAM,40GB Hard Disk Drive and running Windows XP.

Now, I don’t say that my low configuration PC will not support that huge games which I specified before but I am not interested in gaming even when my PC is upgraded.

I don’t say that I will not play games in computer but my favorite is Arcanoid games for excising mind reflexes..:-) I will discuss about that.. 🙂

But look at the advantage it bought me. I am happy using my age old computer for many beneficial purposes… 🙂
