Recovering Photos from a corrupt or un-formatted SD Card

I happened to buy a new camera, and it came with a brand new SD card. In all the excitement I just popped the battery and the memory card in and started shooting pictures. I was so intrigued with the new toy and the amazing pictures I could shoot, that it never occurred to me […]

My Surgery Experience – Pain, Delirium, Fun!

I’m just back from my first personal experience with what is called a modern day ‘Surgery’. I experienced something so intriguing that I decided to write about it before it fades away into a distant memory. The experience is special for many reasons: One because I never stayed in a hospital before. Two the surgery […]

WordPress attachment import/export issue – workaround

I exported the all my wordpress posts here using the Tools – export option. I later tried to import all the posts to my new domain (I shall announce soon). The import was only half successful.

What are RSS feeds?

I just added an RSS feed link to my blog. Guests like you could subscribe to the feeds and they would know of all that I update here, without even visiting the blog’s homepage. Isn’t that interesting? Yeah I too thought so. In addition, I got curious to know how these RSS feeds worked. And […]

I have a lot of photographs that I’ve been shooting for over three years now. Thought I could publish a few of them. After all, photos are to be shared! So I started a photo-blog, foto. The posts there don’t just show the photographs but also explain the context and the content. You could navigate […]

Calculator, Paint missing in windows XP

I suddenly realized that the Games folder, the Calculator and the Paint applications went missing on my Windows XP PC. The games that come with XP don’t interest me much, but the calculator and paint come very handy when you have some quick math or a screen-shot-edit to do. This might have happened when the […]

XP drivers for Dell XPS m1330

I bought a Dell XPS m1330 laptop. It came with Vista home premium but I have always thought XP was the best MS OS around. It did not take me long to realize I had to install XP on my laptop but at the same time I wanted to retain the Vista that it came […]

Install XP on your Vista PC

I bought a new Dell laptop (XPS M1330), and it came with Vista. And with Vista, came so much ‘extra’ that I wondered how complicated using a laptop seemed. The glassy glossy look was the only thing that attracted me initially. A week into using the Vista laptop, I thought I bought a bug. I […]
