One more interesting site for all you worker bees :P A site where you list your competitors and it will find all the information reported online on them and present it to you in a structured manner. This will be updated regularly as when information becomes available online. Discover and share competitive information in a timely manner. If any of you try this one out let me know.

Did you ever use this tool in Word?  I used to play around with a similar function in Mac OS X when it was known as Rhapsody before it was launched.  There used to be a slider which you could move up or down depending on how much or little you wanted as your summary.  Now I'm not trying to rub your noses in it and I'm not sure how long this function has been available in Word.  Honest! :D Thought that all you working sorts would find it useful.   Found the link to AutoSummarize a Word Document in one of my favourite sites LifeHacker.

The bracelets

The bracelets

This one is for Harry.

Everyone that evening was enamored with these bracelets including Ashu! Shiti had me take this and a few other photographs so that you could go to the junk jewelery market in Hong Kong and pick them up for her. For more details contact Shiti.

View from the balcony

below and right It's been a while since i made a post here. I've now sort of given up on getting you guys to make a post but more than that one two three others that i have started are keeping me busy :P Here's a new pict. We have a chota pukur in front our apartment and i took a couple of photographs on one of our visits. The current plot is to plan a move in a week. If you check out this post you'll see that it is bare and since our container wont arrive for a month we'll have a few weeks of bare. Ramesh and I are really looking forward to moving out of the hotel.

How do you like my Yahoo Avatar?

Yahoo! Avatars
How do you like my new avatar? Yahoo seems to have started offering this option recently. You can use your avatar with messenger, on your site etc. The best part is that you can change the moods, the clothes, the hairstyle etc and it updates it automatically. There are 3 others with yahoo accounts - i hope to see your avatars soon.

Looks familiar? I'd taken a similar shot when we visited Safdarjung's Tomb a few months ago. I've a whole bunch of photos taken at the Jama Masjid but t'will be a while before I upload all of them. Currently there are 5 on the Flickr site. Just click on the photograph and you'll get to flickr.

Yahoo - Get an alias id

For those of you with id's on Yahoo that you are not totally satisfied with. And you couldnt do anything about it 'cause what you wanted was taken. Well, here's another chance. Yahoo is allowing the use of "." and so you can try for your name again or use something interesting.
eg original id
For those of you who dont know what an alias is... the second email id will also be linked to your first one so all mail addressed to this new id will also go straight to your original InBox.
