Man mistakes porn DVD as woman's cries for help

Oconomowoc - Instincts took over, James Van Iveren says, when he rushed out his door to the sound of a woman being raped in an apartment above. "It was a woman screaming," he recalled Tuesday. "She was screaming for help." Sword in hand, he bounded up the stairs, kicked in the door and confronted a man who turned out to be alone - watching a pornographic movie. Van Iveren "Now I feel stupid," Van Iveren said. Worse yet, police seized his sword - a family heirloom - carted him to jail and referred the case to a prosecutor who charged Van Iveren with three criminal counts. "This really is nothing," Van Iveren insisted, "nothing but a mistake." Van Iveren's "mistake" unfolded on the morning of Feb. 12 when Van Iveren, 39, of Oconomowoc, was listening to music in the apartment he shares with his mother behind Red & Bunny's Diner on S. Main St. Suddenly, according to Van Iveren, the distinct cries of a woman pleading fo

How to install Nepali Unicode??

Due to lots of requests and askings, i'm compelled to write this article here. It's about enabling Nepali unicode on your machine. I showed them the way to www.mpp.org.np but still they come and ask me to do that myself. So, i've put this very very simplified version here. By default, unicode support is present in windows XP unlike Windows 98/me etc. So, you really don't have to care much about reading unicode enabled websites or documents from Windows XP unless you want to create one at your own machine. For this you've to install Nepali Unicode Enviroment if you want to type in Romanized Nepali. Well, unicode is 16-bit character set standard, designed to include characters appearing in most languages. This is very helpful in localization project. Nepali unicode font has been developed by Madan Puraskar Pustakalaya (MPP). Since, unicode is a standard, we really don't have to think of individual font. For ex; Preeti font(It is true type nepali font), if so

Catch Me If You Can

He posed as a doctor, a pilot, and a lawyer without any training and got away with it. But he'll appear simply as himself to keynote an upcoming security conference. Frank Abagnale, whose life story was depicted in the film "Catch Me If You Can," has signed up to keynote the RSA Conference Europe, taking place in London in October. Within a five year period, starting when he was 16 years old, Abagnale cemented his reputation as a famous confidence man. He cashed over $2.5 million in fake checks and illegitimately worked in a variety of professions, including college professor and pediatrician. Abagnale got caught in France when he was 21 and was released after five years in prison on the condition that he teach and assist law enforcement agencies without pay. Since then, for more than 25 years, Abagnale has served as an associate with the U.S. Federal Bureau of Investigation, conducting lectures about forgery and embezzlement for trainees. He has also developed techno

Windows Live Messenger Ad threat

Well fellas! this news was released worldwide in 20th February 2007. But i forgot to write something on it. Now,i'm doing that. Microsoft has always been into arguments/contradictions and scandals. They are the targets of many hackers/crackers/spoofers/scammers.. Now, the recent news discloses that a false AD has been generating on Client sides messenger, that's apparently on Windows Live messenger. That AD is related to security application and it warned the IM user, a computer has been seriously infected with virus or some other malware. Something like that, and the innocent user has no other choice but to purchase their bogus program. That program, as microsoft said, falsely generated illogical threats in computer so that users could be scared. News ahead.. Banner advertisements for a security application said to report false or inflated threats appeared for at least a few days on Microsoft's instant messaging (IM) program, prompting warnings from security analysts

PopStar Britney Spear BALDED

"Look at that jerk, myan.. it's kevin federline..darn him. he is such a jerk. It's so much shame on him to feed on britneys money." i never saw him as a celebrity like Austin Timberlake or other. These are the words for kevin federline when i see him on TV, everytime. Now, ever since, he was found cheating on britney's back, as news source quoted, britney signed on their divorse paper lately. The rumors are on that eversince that happened , britney's gone out of mind, reckless and mad. Her behaviours in public,party bars were adequate to prove her mental condition. No matter if her proponents won't agree with the fact but amateur photo shots and video reveal pretty much. Now, she is loosing her career. She is on the verge of her destiny. she earned a lot of thing and now, she is loosing them one by one in a split of time. Her official fan site club is now no more. It's stopped. She is condemned for her deeds. Her fans are turning into rivals. Bu

BORAT

I was getting bored late afternoon. I knew what is concerned at that moment, i went to one local shop in mid-ktm area and bought a movie with a skinny guy posing awkwardly in its cover. His name was Borat, i figured that out after i watched the movie. It was quite unusual to see an american flag on Muslim looking guys hand. At it's cover, there was subheading"Cultural Learnings of America for Make Benefit Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan". i couldn't get at first go what was that really meant but it's how Borat make conversation with others in the whole movie. His broken language at times made me laugh whereas leaving other native speakers speechless out of curiosity or anxiety. whateva,.. he belongs to his country land called Kazakistan and the whole movie is based on journey to America to learn american culture for the benefit of kazakistan. I think he is presenter or reporter of his local news. In the middle somewhere, i felt it's a documentary episode bu

War of mobile phones

Being loyal to Sony Ericsson phone for so many years, greed to own a symbian based smartphone, i switched to Nokia N70. That was the best with the money i could ever buy. In fact, i wanted to buy N80 but with the price it was tagged with, i couldn't get with my limited budget. Anyways, i've no regrets owning N70. Because, it's feature rich,3G ready and more. You could just google if you are interested on any mobile phone. Okay, the fantastic things i've done with my N70 is that i've installed an app called 'N70 torch' and whao, this phone is super-crazy torch light(very helpful during loadshedding). I've installed some emulators which let me play gameboy and NES games. Now, it's handheld game device for me as well. May be lots of people don't know about what they can do with their devices, usually i tinker around with everything i own, most of the time, seriously. One night, i was updating N70's firmware to latest one and it took whole 4 h

Killer Thermometer

I never knew the mercury inside the glass thermometer is so harmful. It is on today's local newspaper i found that if accidental spilt of glass thermometer occurs, it can cause serious poisoning effects on human body. We have been using glass thermometer for so many years which contains the most lethal ingredients. Mercury, silvery liquid like metal, easily turns into vapour at normal room temperature(i.e 22-24 degree Centigrade) and when someone inhales it, it gets absorbed into the human body. It's very common that we ignore the accidental breakage of glass thermometer. The mercury which can be easily absorbed by our skin into the blood stream, leading to tremors, nausea and blurred vision. Mercury is a neurotoxin which attacks the human nervous system and brain. it is more fatal on growing children than on adults. It can cause coma and death in many cases. Other symptoms mostly seeen on adults are tremors,headaches,blurred vision, poor concentration, hair loss and nausea

Windows Mobile phones to pack Opera

Some of the first Windows Mobile 6.0 phones to hit the market will include Opera Software ASA's mobile browser, in addition to Microsoft Corp.'s browser. Motorola Inc.'s Q as well as phones from High Tech Computer Corp., Asus and Toshiba Corp. will include Opera Mobile, Jon von Tetzchner, co-founder and CEO of Opera, said at the 3GSM World Congress in Barcelona. Microsoft launched Windows Mobile 6.0, the latest version of its mobile phone operating system, this week. Internet Explorer Mobile, Microsoft's browser, comes with the software. A number of handset makers announced this week plans to release phones running the operating system.

"People do want a quality browser when on Windows Mobile," he added. Opera's browser technology renders W

Television Shows!!!

Television is the great source of information,knowledge,entertainment,music,politics and movies. There are so many channels in different regional languages. To talk about my hood, the history of Television channel is not very old. It's just mere 14-15 years old. We used to have one channel and starting with that one channel, we now have abundance of around 100 channels these days. It takes so much time for me to concentrate on single channel. So, i keep changing channels on and on. I love something related to special effects which are used in movies,music videos songs etc. I also watch programs based on technology,computer games, etc. Almost all channels are satellite based which we get through the receiver antenna of local cable operator. Those cable operators, i don't know much, have authentic as well as pirated channels being shown. Of all the channels, it's really irony not to see a single channel showing properly on tech issues. May be i haven't noticed any such

This is based in part on the program Eliza written in the 1960's by MIT scientist Joseph Weizenbaum and named after Eliza Doolittle. EllaDemo5 is also based on ideas and work of several others in the field, but I will not attempt to list them all here at this time. My code was written in loosely coupled cohesive objects that can easily be adapted for use as part of an efficient interface between a database and Active Server Pages for Internet access .

99 Useful Run Commands

Do you use the Run feature in Windows XP? For most, this feature remains unused (or rarely used). Why is that? Well, First off nearly all of the Run Commands Correspond to a particular Control Panel Item or a Utility, Tool or Task that can be accessed through Windows. There are, however, tools and utilities that I bet you never knew you had that can be accessed through the Run feature. The main reason most people don't use the Run feature is because they don't know the Commands. So, to solve that problem, I decided to put together the following listing, which lists 99 Run Commands and what they correspond too...

Wikipedia in REAL danger!!!

Florence Devouard, chairwoman of the Wikimedia Foundation, caused a bit of a stir at the recent Lift conference in Geneva by suggesting that Wikipedia is running out of money and could “disappear” — The original report came on a blog written by Philippe Mottaz, a Swiss multimedia producer and journalist. According to his report, Ms. Devouard told the conference: “Wikipedia has the financial resources to run its servers for about three to four months. If we do not find additional funding, it is not impossible that Wikipedia might disappear.” There is also a similar report from Bruno Giussani, an author and the European director of the TED conferences. Meanwhile, a Wikimedia staff member named Sandy Ordonez has posted a comment on Nick’s post saying “Ms. Devouard’s comment was taken out of context” and that “Wikipedia will not be closing any time soon. Ms. Devouard was simply referring to the ongoing, pressing needs for funds that Wikipedia, like most nonprofit organizations, face.”

Vista successor "Vienna" planned for late 2009

Now that Microsoft has freed Windows Vista from the shackles of a five year development process, the company is attempting to wow us by revealing that it plans to have its next major operating system ready within the next two-and-a-half years, giving Vista's successor an expected release date of late 2009. Speaking to PC World, Ben Fathi, the executive in charge of the OS's core components, made it clear that he was referring to a whole new OS -- known to have the codename "Vienna" -- and not the upcoming Vista service pack, codenamed "Fiji." Other than this tentative release date, Ben didn't have much new information on the future for Windows: in response to the question of what Vienna's killer feature will be, he said "I don't know what it is" and then proceeded to suggest that full virtualization and a radical new user interface will be the aim. Both of these suggestions lend credence to previous reports that a break in compatiblit

Windows Live Mail Now 'Live Hotmail'

In an attempt to allay confusion over its new AJAX-enabled webmail system, Microsoft said Thursday that Windows Live Mail was being renamed to Windows Live Hotmail. The decision follows a recent switch to keep the classic Hotmail interface for existing users. Microsoft says that during beta testing, which began last March, it learned that users were "extremely loyal to the Hotmail brand" and "a bit confused by name change." Therefore, it hopes the Windows Live Hotmail name will reiterate that the new service retains what users liked about the old system. "As we prepare to launch the final version of our new web mail service, we recognize the importance of ensuring that our 260+ million existing customers come over to the new service smoothly and without confusion," Windows Live Hotmail senior product manager Richard Sim wrote. "We hope you like the approach we're taking and see this as a positive change." Initial responses weren't th
