Adding Audio to my blogger blog

I was finding a way to embed audio in blogger. And i found www.vudyo.com. I signed up there and created username for me to upload songs. I uploaded my first Audio, a hindi song, very cool and romantic song which was sung by Meiyang Chang in Indian idol. I was searching for that song and i found it, listen to it again and again and uploaded it. This song 'unkahi' is dedicated to Prerana Right now, i finished embedding it to my blogger post and it is working great. The only flaw i found is there was 'Upload Video' option. I thought 'Upload Audio' would be there but I didn't get it and thought not to bother much. Since my work is done and i can only wish vudyo.com correct such minor issues in coming days. Or may be i'm wrong about that because i need to explore all the contents of this site in time. Should be 'upload Audio' button, i guess

Today GAI JATRA !!!

Today, GaiJatra, a Nepalese festival where procession of cows is marched around the city with all the wicked attires and it's National Holiday too. I don't know much about this festival but i know that it is celebrated in the memory of parents who passed away long time ago. It is also said, one should participate this festival whose family member has passed away within a last one year. Besides, people makes jokes,fun and mock people with their funny and humorous attire and gestures. Girl dresses like a guy, guy dresses like a girl, some where even made-up as a cow. Those participating,splash water to attenders who watches them, they run away and are chased and again this goes on and on. This kindda looks crazy but people enjoy this festival. Besides, this is the day or say season when major publications publishes humorous colorful magazines satiring all the present context of the country from Politics to students,household,culture everything. Magazines are filled with funny ca

Nepal Telecom tricks it's customer to pay undue amounts

This is a newspaper cutting sliced into three images for better viewing. In this, a guy named Sushil Dhungana feels he's robbed by Nepal Telecom. His telephone bills showed huge amounts when he had not made any calls. He went to make an inquiry and he found out that his calls were made to Spice Nepal numbers(another Privately own service provider in Nepal competing Nepal Telecom). So, he remained inactive(making no calls) that month. Following month, he didn't call at all except he was to pay ownership charges only. But to his dismay, the bill was even more than those of previous months records. He was very furious,rushed to telecom office, complained and asked about all the call-logs to get in hand but those Telecom people didn't give him any call-logs saying him, they didn't have it. He doubts their credibility. If they know where and when and to which number we called, then how come they not know that call-log to provide to it's customer when needed. He thinks su

My first Portable harddrive

..I've been trying to get all my data transferred to portable harddrive 80 GB(i bought it for NRs 4900). i created two partitions using 'compmgnt.msc' from the Run command in Windows XP. From that computer management, storage--> Disk management and rest was self-clear. I was trying to encrypt my data and i stumbled upon 'TrueCrypt', an opensource Encryption software. There were two options of encryption, one is selecting/naming file, creating a dump storage(volume) and mounting it with the help of 'TrueCrypt' software itself. Second option is to encrypt the entire partition/device. I selected Second Option and right now it's formatting and encrypting that drive uhh second partition. It has been running since 20 minutes and progress bar shows 30 more minutes to goo.. ughhh.. dunno, what's wrong but to me this speed of formatting is very slow. But file transfer was pretty good, 480mbps. I really liked it. I just wanted that if i plug in the drive,

Ycopy - Intelligent File copying Tool

According to Ron White, "File copying tool is great for large scale copying and will skip files it can't handle without coming to a halt. You have to copy a few hundred gigs worth of files from one place to another. Because this will take a few hours, you decide to take a long lunch while the files migrate. Three hours and four banana margaritas later, you return to find the copy operation choked on the tenth file because the file was open on another screen, or had an error, or was read-only. All your computer has been doing while you were gone is display a message asking you what to do about it. This is when we know computers are not like people. Even the dumbest human would put aside copying that one file until you returned. So will Ycopy. When Ycopy finds a file it can't handle, it makes a note about it, and moves on to the next file. When you get back from lunch, you still have to do something with the recalcitrant files manually, but at least all the other file

China duplicates Natural Mountain

Officials in China spraypainted barren mountain to artificial green WHERE??? Country: China Province: Yunnan Mountain: Laoshou WHO DID THIS? Forestry officials WHY? Officials felt upsetting to see barren lands instead of green. RESPONSES!!! --Local businessman Huang said: "At first I was glad to see the green mountain, thinking the government was paying more attention to the environment.But then I noticed the great contrast with the surrounding mountains." --Another villager complained: "We thought the workers were here to spray pesticides before planting saplings. But it turned out to be green paint." MORAL?? --They duplicate everything. Be it consumer electronics or be it natural sceneries, they duplicate anything. :) --------- src:http://www.ananova.com/news/story/sm_2202763.html

Manhunt 2 releasing soon

Manhunt is a game with extreme violence,blood and gore. Once, i've watched my brother playing this extremely violent games in PS2 where a player has to execute his enemies and game progresses. Methods of killing included crushing heads,beheading victims and more. Moreover, it's very eerie and creepy feelings to see player hang his enemies' head around his belt like a grenade bomb. That was hellava scary. At that time, i read news about following the same way to execute his own friend and later the murderer kid jailed. Upon inquiry, he told he was inspired by Manhunt games and so the reason was enough to ban this game all over the world in different regions. Rockstar is quite infamous for creating scandalous game titles. Now, the sequel of Manhunt is ready with the new title called 'Manhunt 2' set to release by the end of this coming October world wide. It'll be available for PS2,PSP and Wii. So, saddd, not for PC though. And it's rated 'M' by ESRB.

Anti-Mosquitoes programs for Windows XP

These two programs from two different developers produces sound in the range of 16000Hz to 20000Hz which is beyond the audiable range of humans pests and other animals can though hear the same. This sound produces an undesirable effect on mosquitos and other pests thus restrains them from flying near you. SEA Anti-Mosquitoes XP v2.0 KP Anti-mosquitoes V1.0 As soon as program starts running, mosquitoes will not fly around. Turn the speaker On and set any of these two softwares on running in tray. One user said," IT WORKS! Thirty seconds after installation, I was enjoying the first truly comfortable night in my office. Here in the midwest, we are troubled .. nay, tormented by insects so tiny they are called no-see-ums (biting midges). They arrive in spring and remain until the first heavy frost. Attracted to light, the critters will wiggle through the smallest window screen fabric and navigate spaces between closed windows. Insecticides have not helped; mosquito repellent ha

A tribute to the great king of rock n roll 'Elvis Aaron Presley' - R. I . P . I was supposed to post this few days ago but i was going through under big pressure and depression due to hell of a works. I've been his big fan since the time i've known his music and songs, precisely since my childhood. I came to know about his songs, when my grandmother used to play his songs and used to make me dance on the rhythm. I enjoyed and i insisted only on his music ever since. Then i joined college and i started to find about the music i used to listen. Officially, i found the name Elvis Presley as the man of voice behind the magnetic music and songs. And, i started collecting his albums , more and more, i Watched couple of his movies and i read all his biographies. His life is truly inspiring and how he presented himself to the world. Starting as a struggler to fame-name charismatic life, he has everything to be inspired of. When i read about other of his fans, who still don'

Charge Nokia Phone using Peepal Leaves - HOAX

Referring to a news by National News Agency,Nepal, few Newspaper daily made headlines regarding 'Charge Nokia battery using Two peepal leaves'. According to this hoax, using two peepal leaves and attaching it to the charging nodes of nokia battery, would charge the battery within 10 seconds. I see no botanical explanation how is it possible. I've read some facts about bio-gas,that's proven and practical things. But regarding this hoax, i don't know why people are not using their common sense. Those unprocessed peepal leaves would do no way the miracle. To my dismay, some popular blogs of Nepal have emphasized on this topic. May be researchers are not interested on this type of hoax or may be not releasing any Public notice because of falling prey to such hoax. There is no scientific reason at all if it's possible. If it would work that way, i'm sure, a mobile phone company would loose a part of their mobile accessory manufacturing profits. Lastly, don&#
