From sky to fingertips!

Hello everybody!

I am pleased to inform you that Wateen Telecom launches WiMax in Pakistan, in almost every major city of Pakistan.

What is WiMax?

WiMAX, the Worldwide Interoperability for Microwave Access, is a telecommunications technology aimed at providing wireless data over long distances in a variety of ways, from point-to-point links to full mobile cellular type access. It is based on the IEEE 802.16 standard, which is also called WirelessMAN. The name WiMAX was created by the WiMAX Forum, which was formed in June 2001 to promote conformance and interoperability of the standard. The forum describes WiMAX as “a standards-based technology enabling the delivery of last mile wireless broadband access as an alternative to cable and DSL.”

Still don’t get it? Well in simple words, it’s basically a DSL, a wireless DSL 🙂

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 🙂
