Dear Diary – 2nd Sep, 2009

No Comments

I realized I have not posted anything from a long time not even a random quickie not that anyone reads it but it’s fun to write It feel’s good when I express myself

When I clicked “New Post” I had no idea what I am going to write about, I have no clue right now as well So I guess I’ll tell you about my routine these days, yeah? You like that eh? You have a curious stalker somewhere inside you

Oh well

It’s a very busy life I wake up at a fixed time, I work for 14-16 hours (yes don’t give me lecture, I know it’s a lot), and then I sleep at the fixed time for fixed amount of hours mundane boring I wish life had the option of saving and running macros or something like a Super remote control (like in the movie Click) That’s all about my routine I would ask you ‘what’s up with you’ but I don’t want to stop writing/typing right now so I will continue, you can tell me your routine later in the comments

I don’t know if you have read about SeeNReport (pvt) Ltd getting series A VC funding, I think it’s really cool, and I congratulate them and wish them best of luck You can read more about it here

I think @byteconnector‘s poetry is cool, and I think technotwoet.com will rock

(yes, I am just randomly writing things I find/found rather interesting)

One thing that’s constantly bugging me right now is the light yellow/cream colored line on this page which is tempting me to upgrade and try out wp 284 ;p

When guardian makes a mistake and adds “afghanistan” in a url of a story related to Pakistan, it’s somehow Pakistan’s fail 😆 IMO it’s a fail fail *as always* 😆

Did I tell you I have changed my default browser? I now use Firefox just when I want to use Firebug Except for that I am always on Google Chrome It’s fast (Yes, I know you have heard it before ;d)

Just activated a new theme I don’t change themes very often But this one looks pretty cool ;d

These days when I am not working (rarely, before or after work-hours or on weekends) I try to get some time for games and browsing-around randomly Have started playing NFS Undercover Pretty neat But a bit weird in the sense that it allows you to roam freely, but blocks the short-cuts when you are actually in a race I love the cars they have offered though, From Pagani Zonda to Volkswagon :d

While chatting with Saad’s Junni-Darling on msn we talked about one very old game ‘Cadillacs & Dinosaurs‘ that we used to play at “five-star-game-ki-dukaan” (5 Star Game Shop, desi gaming arena :P) We have wasted so many tokens on that game I found it at torrents and played it myself, now Hammad and Ibrahim play that (they have finished it as well) Looking for more classics like that one, I found ‘Golden Axe‘ Triology We used to play that for hours I don’t like it anymore though

I also tried “Worms Armageddon” pretty cool game Trying to find “lemmings” now and will also try “Pro Evolution Soccer ’09”

One interesting fact about this post is that I started it at around Sehri (Sunrise), and right now am having kachori and mithai in Aftaar (Sunset) heh

Just updated an old post: “Blood Camp, YPP, or main

While I was writing this post Gmail went down and came up again as well I didn’t even notice the downtime I find it quite interesting that it was such a widespread issue that almost all of the slots in Google trends were taken by queries related to Google downtime Never saw something like that (Read it on mashable btw, that’s not my original finding)

These days I don’t feel like using twitter or facebook I am even thinking (once again) about dropping off the social scene by comitting a social suicide Let’s see if I really do do that

Oh well, let’s finish this post I will write again tomorrow if I feel like it

Gmail’s New ‘Undo Send’ Feature Saves

Gmail’s New ‘Undo Send’ Feature Saves You From Outbox Regret

A new feature for Gmail aims to rid your life of that classic “Oh Shit” e-mail moment

“Undo Send” puts a five to 10-second hold on all outgoing messages If you addressed an e-mail to the wrong person, let slip with an embarrassing typo or simply said something you really, really shouldn’t have, Undo Send can be a lifesaver Or, more accurately, a job-saver

As with most enhancements to Google’s free webmail app, Gmail users can enable the new Undo Send feature by going into their Labs settings and turning it on — click on the little green flask at the top of the screen, or go to Settings and click on the Labs tab Gmail users can usually access new features shortly after they’re announced, but the features take time to roll out across all accounts, so be patient if it doesn’t show up right away

Turn it on and every time you send an e-mail, you’ll see an Undo link at the end of the confirmation message that appears at the top of your inbox

Gmail – More Cool Features

Gmail - Do more with labelsAs I said earlier Gmail has updated there buttons, they are very shiny now But the update doesn’t ends there

The labels dropdown menu is improved as well,  instead of having list of labels twice in same dropdown menu for Assigning or Moving an email’s label, you have two lists, one for Moving Label and one for Assigning a new Label

If you have a long list of labels (like I have) you will also appreciate the new search/auto-complete label feature integrated into these label’s dropdowns

This is another great new feature in Gmail, I send and receive many receipts, quotations & documents via Gmail, everytime for finding one particular file I had to open many (similar subjects and file names, just date and receiver is usually different) but now I have ability to view PDF without downloading it You do have to login to Google Docs but it doesn’t saves the document on your Google Docs account And it’s pretty quick too Moreover it doesn’t makes your Firefox heavy as an elephant like the default Adobe Reader Plugin does

Here is what Google writes on their what’s new page:

Labels: auto-complete and “move to”

The buttons and menus at the top of your inbox look a bit different: there’s a new “Labels” button that makes labeling messages even easier Turn on keyboard shortcuts and hit “L” to bring up your labels, and auto-complete will take it from there Use the “Move to” button to label and archive in just one step — just like you would with a folder Learn more

Fast PDF previews

Now you can preview PDFs right in your browser without waiting for them to download and open in another application Just click the “View” link next to any pdf attachments you receive
