Got dumped?

29 11 2007

On a blowy weather, my friend came to me with an dark look on his face, and told me that he just got dumped by a girl, that he loved the most for several years.

And he showed me few of his poems that he just wrote it by himself, as an aftereffect of that incident.

This is my personal approach of ranking poems, that metaphors should be used wisely and there should be a similar soundings between the stanzas. I am not sure what to call them in English language, anyways, I didn’t like his poems very much, because they seem to me as I am reading a paragraph, not a poem. I said, I don’t like it, at least the words at the end should sound alike. He said, like how?

And I thought for sometime, and then wrote these poems, this was my first time to write a poem in English.
Here goes.

Reflecting myself in the water splash,
Reminding me that I am nothing but mess.

She got into me as a raid,
Soon nothing left but betrayed.

Blossoms flew away with blizzard,
I wish nothing but I was a wizard,
That could fly me away like a bird,
From sorrows that made me nerd.

I just tried to teach him how to start. But then I was involved in composing few other poems for myself, as in college I had nothing else to do, during boring classes and free time.

And then I started adding poems to English essays, that really bought me brilliant marks.

Being a poet isn’t a bad thing, it offers you 10/10 marks 😀
Of course, that’s not why I write poems, but because I really want to

Your comments are appreciated. Thank you 🙂

Why everyone should love Chemistry?

27 11 2007

Hi again!

Who loves chemistry? Well, I don’t 😛
But I loved on that day, when I was daydreaming during my chemistry class, and I was composing a poem, yes! A poem. Yeah yeah! I know I am not a poet, see, that’s the point, chemistry makes you a poet, a scientist or even a philosopher 🙂

I was so bored, and I could not understand a thing, there were some sort of things like

H-CH-CH-CH-CH-CH-CH-H

Blah blah blah !!

Anyways, here’s the poem, it’s funny 😀

There’s nothing but looking things,
Looking at alphabets with some wings,
Can’t think the way it thinks,
It’s the brain of our teacher that he brings.

And this was composed on the other day, when our teacher was speaking of some weird words, I never heard of them ever in my life 😛

Stuffed and tired,
As our new teacher being hired,
Hearing some words; being admired,
All like same to me; but not to them,
A fool being named; that would be me,
But I think; Nobody is wise than me.





Hackers? How to get rid of them?

26 11 2007


Hi everybody!

After a long delay, I decided what to post here, a topic on how to defend yourself from Hackers.
I have heard people yelling, “OMG! I M HACKED!”, so I thought it’s good to tell people not to yell and start taking steps to get secured. Firstly, this post is for beginners (Windows XP users), not for professionals.
Ok, enough chit chat, here’s what you gonna do.

  • Install a fresh Windows (Windows XP Service Pack 2, no! Not Service Pack 1) installation, and install an AntiVirus, yeah no drivers first, AntiVirus first!! Got it?
  • Then update your AntiVirus virus definitions and scan your computer for viruses
  • Download free tool, called SafeXP, and select Recommended settings and click Apply (This is a great tool for XP, for optimizing and securing XP)
  • Go to Control Panel>Administrator Tools>Local Users and Groups>Users> Right click on Administrator and click Set Password, then put a password onto Administrator account, and do the same on every account, you should have a password on every account.
  • Install a Firewall, I prefer to use Sygate Firewall, but it’s not free, here’s a free one, named Comodo Firewall Pro

  • I recommend that, you must stop Network Sharing, but if you are at home network or in which you could trust people, that’s ok, but if you don’t, you need to turn it off. It’s a big threat. How to do it? Open Control Panel>Administrative Tools>Services> Right click “Server” and click properties, choose Startup type to “Disabled”, and click Stop, and then OK. That’s it.

Now that your computer is secured, now you need to take few more steps, and precautions.
NEVER EVER ACCEPT A FILE FROM A PERSON YOU DON’T KNOW, got it? Makes sense?
Alright, good.

Maybe some people tell you to put “javascript:blah blah blah blah” in your address bar and press enter. Never do it! This is how your cookies are stolen, no! It’s not the real cookies, cookies are encrypted text that store login information, in simple words, this is how a website knows you are logged in. BTW, if you are real cookies get stolen, it might be your cat 😉

Happy surfing 😉

*ADDITION (29th Nov 2007)
Sharuk has posted few more tips, that I would like to add it here.

  • Never install pirated version of Operating System
  • Never install free or paid software unless you are sure its safe or heard from someone about it
  • Never give away your sensitive information on shared or free internet access points
  • Keep away from myspace or any other site which let users customize its interface or layout
  • Use Strong passwords and never buy something from sites which use low or no encryption

A million thanks to him 🙂

Amazing Sci-Fi story

21 11 2007

Here’s a little Sci-Fi story, a mind jumbling story 🙂

Kaalachakra Bar!

1975 Jan 1

It was about five in the morning. Father (I am not bothering with names) woke up with a start. Many years had passed since he had founded the orphanage. He had named it ‘ X-Orphanage ‘ , a rather funny name. But looking back, everything about his life seemed funny now. Hearing some noise outside, Father decided to have a look. A child lay there in front of the orphanage. It was a girl. Seeing her abandoned like this in the cold morning, Father felt a sense of anger for the merciless being who had thrown her away like this. He took her in his arms. He would raise her like his own child.

17 Years Later

The girl had now grown up. She was now staying at a hostel. She met a man and fell in love with him. Soon she got pregnant.But the man disappeared. She was thrown out of the Hostel. Father came and took her back to the orphanage. She gave birth to a girl, but the baby was mysteriously stolen. Unable to bear all this, the Father committed suicide.

5 years later

Due to some serious health problems, the girl went to see a Doctor. The doctor having examined her, said with a sad _expression on his face, “Adrenalo Sytosis, a serious case of hormone imbalance” . An operation was performed in which the doctor had to change the sex of the patient. The girl was now transformed into a man. The man was very depressed because he had lost his child, his father had committed suicide, his lover had betrayed him, he had to change sex and so on. He eventually took to drinking.

One day he saw that a new bar called ‘Kaalachakra Bar’ had opened in his locality. He went in. He saw a bearded man to whom he related his sad tale. he bearded man took pity on him and told him that he had a Time Machine and that he could use it to change his past. He accepted the gift from the bearded man. He decided to go to the past (to the year 1992) and started the Time Machine.!!!! !!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!!

1992

The man arrived with the Time Machine in the year 1992. There he met a girl and fell in love with her. The girl got pregnant. The man, unwilling to marry her, left the town. He went to another city, earned some money and five years later came back to the city where the girl lived. Wanting to conceal his identity, he grew a beard. He started a bar named ‘Kaalachakra Bar’. One day a man came to the bar and narrated a sorrow tale. Out of compassion, he gave the Time Machine to the man. The man started the Time Machine and went back to the past.

Suddenly a man wearing a mask came into the bar. He pointed a gun at the bearded man. He said that he had a Time Machine and forced the bearded man into it along with himself. Taking the bearded man with him, the masked man started the Time Machine. When they reached the past, the masked man suddenly gave the Time Machine to the bearded man and ran away. The bearded man found himself in front of X-Orphanage. He went inside and found a woman lying there with her new born baby. It was a girl. Since the mother lay unconscious and there wasn’t anyone else nearby to take care of the girl, he took the girl and started the Time Machine to go to the past.

1975 Jan 1

The bearded man arrived with the girl. Thinking that it was the best place for the child, he left her in front of X-Orphanage. He joined a college, studied hard and became a doctor. One day a woman was brought to the hospital. He examined her and found that it was a serious case of ‘Adrenalo Sytosis’. He performed an operation in which he had to change her sex. One day, fed up with the complexities of modern life, he started the Time Machine and went back in time.

1968 May 12

He arrived at a time of great famine and suffering. Seeing all this, he decided to become a priest and serve the people. He started an orphanage and named it ‘X-Orphanage’ . Years later, he found a girl lying in front of the orphanage. He took her and brought her up like his own child. Many years later he heard that the girl was pregnant and was thrown out of the hostel. He brought her back to X-Orphanage. She gave birth to a girl and fell unconscious. The father desperately searched for help, but since there was no-one nearby to help him, he decided to bring a person back from the future. He wore a mask, took a gun for protection and started the Time Machine. He materialized in front of ‘Kaalachakra Bar’. He went inside, found a bearded man and forced him to travel with him to the past.

Reaching the past, he felt very guilty about forcing the bearded man to come with him. He gave the Time Machine to the bearded man and ran away to see his daughter. When he reached there, he heard the sad news from his daughter that the baby was stolen. Unable to bear the sorrow, he committed suicide.
