Dad's Retirment party

Its been a while since i made some new posts as there was no special events going on in my life for past one week.But yesterday was a exceptional one as it was one of the important and a D day for my dad and rest of my family as it was my dad's retirement day.

My dad was a government employee working in the Electricity board of Tamil Nadu and he got retired as a Superintending Engineer with an 37 year Experience in the field.As my dad was known for his hard work and sincerity,he had a quite a number of good friends and some followers too.Most of them came to my house to drop him and bid a warm goodbye to him.Some of my relatives even wanted to come for the function but as a simple man ,my dad didn't want any such things as it would cost my relatives a lot to come and attend the function.Any way there were a lot of my family friends present who live nearby us.It was not a such grand party and all but it was much fun with 2 little kids getting the center of attention and there mischievous acts clouding away the sad with happiness.

It was both a sad and happy moment in my house.Even though my dad is a little bid worried ,there is nothing to be worried about as he had already educated me and my brother to a very good standard and we have even started earning so don't worry Dad and this particular post is a tribute to my lovely and caring Dad.

Port Forwading for UTorrent Client

I have been downloading some films via torrent and was using utorrent as the torrent client for some time now.Although some torrents got downloaded faster most of them did not start downloading even though they had a large number of seeds and peers.I could not find out what the problem was ,so i tried different torrents but there was no difference.One of my friends told me to check out the speed guide in utorrent client and i tried it.The speed was good in my connection but the port was not open and my torrents where not forwarded in simple way it was not downloading since the port was blocked by my router.I looked at the help given and tried forwarding the torrents in that way,but as my connection P2POE and port forwarding in my router needed the address to be static ,i was not able to do it.I tried forwarding it in dynamic ip itself and my router got struck with it.The next time i booted my system,the router wasn't able to assign a ip address for my system so i had to reset my router to get it back to normal.If any one know how to solve this problem ,please let me know... Thanks in advance.

Bomb Blast in Banglore !! Condolence's for the suffered

There has been a series of bomb blasts in banglore today starting around 1.30 pm. The first explosion that occurred at a bus stop near the Madivala check-post on the busy Hosur Road claimed the life of Sudha Ravi who was waiting for a bus with her husband. Two more explosives went off in the adjoining Audugodi area, in which three persons were injured.

Low intensity explosions were also reported from three places on Mysore Road and two spots in the heart of the city, near the Mallya Hospital and near Rashtriya Military School on Langford Road.

In Audugodi, explosives were planted behind a telephone junction box near a commercial complex under construction, and another near a storm water drain. On Mysore Road, explosives were placed under a power supply transformer near a mall, a storm water drain and near the Regional Transport Office.

Two people are dead and more than 25 people where injured according to the latest news in television.My heartily condolence's for those who suffered in the bomb blast and the ones who did this should not go unpunished and they will surely suffer for their doings before leaving this world itself.Those bastards are not even worthy to compare with any of the creatures in the world.

Congress is back !! Will India be back too ????????

Congress has striked again for the third time in the history of Indian politics by wining in the thrust vote in the parliament .The UPA government led by the Manmohan Singh has won the thrust vote with 253 votes on favor against 232 votes in the house of 487 with two absentees.

Due to the political instability,the prices of all common commodities were at their maximum peak for the past one week and the stocks were falling too,now as the political condition is almost stabilized,what are the UPA government's plan to bring back the economic stability of India remains a question and will the plans help out India is another question that can be answered only by the upcoming future.Hoping that everything will go fine and India will be back on its track !!!!!!!!

Street Names ...........

I was on my trip to chennai yesterday with my parents in our own vehicle and my dad wanted to visit a temple on the way so we had to take a different route for that.The Route for the temple was a single lane one which went through some of the old villages and some industrial estates.There was a particular village by name Kothanur and i was fascinated by it.Whats was so peculiar and special about that village was that all the street names in that village was named after a flower which is not a usual one around here nor in any part of the world.I even found some streets with a rare flower name which are almost forgot in the modern world.It was so nice to see such street names instead of the regular 1st cross ,2nd cross ones.

Cute Cats in rain !!!!!!!!!!

Yesterday it was raining in my surroundings ,it was not just a drizzle but a little bit heavy downpour.I was enjoying the rain staying outside my house when i heard a little "Meow" around the corner so i turned back to check it out and it turned to be little Kitten which hangs around our neighborhood.It seemed that the kitten has stopped by my house for a shelter from the downpour and was even accompanied by his mom cat.It was a little orangish in color and i always liked kittens and pets but my mom who hated pets kept on pushing them away from my house so i had to fight with my mom to let them stay till the rain gets over and i succeeded in it.I felt very happy after that incident and now hoping that i will even succeed in having a pet too in my near future.

I don't know what struck me or what the name Bobgally means but thats me in my new world in which i entered some 2 days ago.As a great fan of warcraft ,i was longing to try out the online role playing world of warcraft and my await came to a conclude the last weekend when i installed the world of warcraft and finished downloading all the patches required.

I created a free 10 day account to check out the game but the patches itself took 5 of the days in the trial pack to complete all the downloads so i created a new account in my other mail id ;) .I started playing by taking my favourite Night elf druid character and i managed to top upto level 10 when my first trial pack got over in which i already had lost 5 days so today i started the new account and took Orc Hunter character and have topped to level 7 on day one and hoping to top atleast up to level 20 within the 10 days .

House Hunting Day !!!!!!!!!!!!!!

At last i got a house for rent in chennai pallavakam but the journey need to get this house was a tiresome one.As a novice in the field of house hunting ,i didn't know the fact that the houses can't be rented without help of a house broker and it took me a whole week to know this fact.As the house brokers get commission or the brokerage from both the owner and rentals of the house ,they have made an agreements with house owner and had removed all the rental signs in and around the city,so the only way to find out the rental house is through a broker.Thats not it all ,the brokers get a fee of the one month rent of the house from both the parties which is about 10k mostly for a 2 bedroom flat.

I was accompanied by my colleague and his father from thiruvanamallai, we went to his fathers office which is located in chennai and his father's colleagues helped us a lot in finding the house we needed.They also arranged a broker known to them for our convenience and after about a half day search with the broker we came up to a separate house in pallavakam which is a five minutes travel from our work place.I like the calm atmosphere and lush green environment there so we booked it with a token advance of 10k .The monthly rent is 10k and the advance is 50k.Going to start my new IT life there from next month and lets see how it goes !!!!!!!!

Camera going wierd !!!!!!!!!!!

I have an Canon Power shot A60 digital camera and it was working fine till last week but it started acting weird a day ago when i was about to take a photo of brand new shirt.The screen was blurred with a orangish shade all over it and the photos to came in weird colors and totally blurred.I thought that the battery pack was not good and so tried changing it but that did not help it either.Tried to change some settings which too did not work out and at last i lost hope and started searching for a Canon Customer center and found out that it was only available in Chennai,so planning to take my camera to chennai next weekend hoping that the problem will be a small one and won't cost me a fortune.Here are some picture which i took in my camera,even though the pictures are not clear they look fantastic like a modern art.

Scam in Torrents - The Dom X decoder !!!

I am a fan of Angelina Jolie so i was eager to see her latest film "Wanted" ,so i downloaded a torrent from torrent reactor site.It said it was a good high quality copy so i started downloading it and completed downloading it at the day's end.When i opened it with media player ,i got a screen shot as below telling that the movie was encoded in a DOM - X decoder and can be viewed only in a DOM X player.

I found out that the player mention was not a free ware in the site mentioned in the screen shot and so i goggled for it.The results i got took be aback because the whole film was a scam and the player was a malware and all the forms advised me not to download it.In one such a form i found a person suggesting a decoder so i tried it but even after decoding what i got was just a advertisement for the whole length of the video.

So friends be careful and look for the comments before downloading any such torrents.If you come across any one do flag it bad or leave a comment so that the other people may know about it too.

My Brother on Peach Tree Road Race

The Guy in the photo (the one with specks) is my brother and the photo was taken in the Atlanta Journal - Constitution (AJC) Peach Tree Road Race which was held on this July 4 th,2008.He took part in the race with the other 55,000 people of the race.This is second race followed by his marathon and he finished the 10 km race in 83 minutes.Congratz Bro !!!!!!!!!!!!!

Now lets get down to this Peach Tree Road Race and learn a little more about it,as its one of the longest road race.On July 4, 1970 in Atlanta, a group of just over 100 runners made history, just by running down the street. What began that day as a simple fun run has grown over the past forty years into one of the city’s signature events and favorite Fourth of July traditions

The Peachtree Road Race is a 6.2 mile (10,000 meter) road race. The race starts on Peachtree Road at Lenox Square Mall (just south of Lenox Road). The race continues down Peachtree Road. Mile 4 (near Piedmont Hospital) is mostly uphill and has received the nickname "Heart Break Hill". After mile 5, the race turns east onto 10th Street with the finish line next to Piedmont Park.As of 2008, the race course has changed. The race now terminates on Juniper St just south of 10th St. Racers finish by going uphill instead of the older downhill stretch of 10th St.

Here are some photos of this year's road race .....

The Incredible Hulk

Incredible Hulk(2008) is up to its name Incredible in graphics and cinematography but not in the story line where it has left the spectators with a lot of questions not answered.As a comic fan ,i was greatly excited to see the Incredible Hulk when it hit the silver screen but the movie was not up to my expectation and failed to impress me.

As the continuation of the part 1 ,Bruce who is the Hulk lives in shadows trying to avoid the warmongers who are trying to use him as a weapon and also seeking an antidote or cure for his curse.At his work place due to an accident ,a small amount of his blood falls in an bottle made for some drink which gets transported to another country informing his location to the Warmongers.
Then the chase begins as usual but there is a twist in the tale which is when one of the warmongers is applied the same treatment as it was given for Hulk and he eventually turns into a Yellow Monster Abomination.In the mean while Hulk tries an antidode which works well but it only lost for a little time as he needs to turn back into Hulk to save the world from the Adomination.
