Most technologically experimental 24 hours

I am a keen learner, but I am very lazy when it comes to doing technical stuff. I have relied a lot on friends to do it for me so far…. And when pushed against the wall, I really took it upon myself to do it on my own and walk the untreaded paths .

In the past 24 hours I have managed to

  • download a 700mb file (never dared to do that before)
  • download flashget to download that 700 mb file (never knew you can download a software to facilitate the download of files!!)
  • format a PC
  • prepare bootable floopy disk and cd
  • tried to install Windows
  • tried to install Linux, even when I havent ever worked on that platform
  • used DOS after ages and worked on it (those commands seem so irritating now after the windows GUI)
  • request a password change with godaddy
  • Phew ! Thats really too much for me.

    Revelations to me:

  • My connection isnt too bad.. I am actually getting the speed I was promised. I know its still not the best, but now I am atleast content that I am getting what I was told. (downloaded 700 mb in 7 hours :D)
  • The difference between kbps and KBps
  • Flashget is a decent software and convenient to use
  • Iso files are saved as images
  • You can boot your computer on Linux through a CD
  • Ubuntu has a cute colourful logo πŸ˜€
  • You have an access to your sql databases in godaddy
  • Areas left for further discovery:

  • Take backup for my blog
  • Instal linux and work on it
  • Must say, there are very few, or rather rare, of the male species on this earth who are encouraging enough and then daring enough to see you sail through your technical endeavours, given your technical handicap which comes as a complimentary gift on being a woman.

    Its one thing to offer help… and another to see you get through it all. The minute difference between “just for the heck of it” and the “real” help. As they say… bolne mein aur karne mein bahut farak hota hai.

      MAGIC #1

      An Indian discovered that nobody can create a FOLDER anywhere on the computer which can be named as “CON”. This is something pretty cool…and unbelievable. .. At Microsoft the whole Team, couldn’t answer why this happened!


      MAGIC #2

      For those of you using Windows, do the following:

      1. Open an empty notepad file

      2. Type “Bush hid the facts” (without the quotes)

      3. Save it as whatever you want.

      4. Close it, and re-open it.

      Is it just a really weird bug? :-??

      MAGIC #3

      Microsoft crazy facts

      this is something pretty cool and neat and unbelievable… At Microsoft the whole Team, including Bill Gates, couldn’t answer why this happened!
      It was discovered by a Brazilian. Try it out yourself.
      Open Microsoft Word and type =rand (200, 99)

      And then press ENTER then see the magic.

      It sounds _really_ good to hear someone say, “I’ve installed Ubuntu”. πŸ™‚

      Do I see a geek (or geekette if you prefer) in the making?
