Notepad or an online diary!!

You've used notepad a plethora of times & that little accessories tool has nothing to crave about. Well, if that's what you think, ponder again; for there's more to Notepad than just being Window's default text editor.

Here's a small tip...courtesy an email forward from a friend -

You are too busy a person at office (or for that matter anywhere else) with n no of meetings & things to remember. You don't have the time to use the Online calendar.

Open the humble notepad & type in .LOG on the top. Now you can add in your important notes to it. Save the changes & close the file.

The next time you open the file you'll find the Date/Time signature appended to it as evident above. Follow the above incase you need to add more notes.

Amazing, Simple & true. Thanks to MS & the guy who sent me the e-mail forward.

Tech Span - A Google PR2 blog now!!

Well..well...well...i know that my last post was a month back & my due apologies for the same. My year long wedding with Java has taken its toll & now i am hinged to it 24x7.

Neverthless, there's some good news. I am glad to announce that 'Tech Span' is now a Google Page Rank 2 blog. Thanks to your support, in the latest google update 'Tech Span' has now gone from PR0 to PR2; & that too within a short span of two months.
Here's the proof - Free Page Rank Tool

On the flip side, 'Tech Span' was reviewed by Assess My Blog & i must admit that the observations were far from satisfactory. Neverthless, i've promised Manick that i'll work upon my follies & get back to him. Here's a link to the review.

Moreover, I have been getting a lot of blog review requests. I will soon be starting out a blog review section aptly called 'Blog Unplugged'. Herein, i'll be reviewing blogs that seem to be of interest to me. In case you need to get your blog reviewed, leave a comment here. But have a look at the conditions before that -
  1. The blog should be atleast 2 months old.
  2. It should preferably be a Technology related blog.
  3. Have atleast 10 posts.

So keep hooked for more...& Happy Republic Day in advance.
