Wishing everyone an awesome 2007!! I guess it is time for us to come out of hibernation and get this place active again. What do you guys say?
Its Marriage time for our group!!!!!!!!!!!who is next wicket!!!!!!!!!!!
The colonial policies of the East India company destroyed the traditional fabric of Indian society.The peasants never ever recovered from heavy taxation, which they went to moneylenders and traders who swallowed the land and peasants were forced to evict the land!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!These moneylenders and traders emerged new landlords.!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
The annexation of Indian states buy company cut off their major source patronage of artisans, and there policies also discouraged the artisans!!!!…..
Zamindars, the traditional landed aristocracy ,often saw their land rights forfeited with frequent use of a quo warranto (is a proceeding whereby the court inquires into the legality of the claim which party asserts to a public office, and to oust him from its enjoyment if the claim be not well founded) this resulted to the loss of status for them in the villages!!!!!!!!!. In Awadh, the storm centre of the revolt,21000 taluqdars had their estates confiscated and suddenly found themselves without source of income,”unable to work,ashamed to beg,condemned to penury”, they were all waiting for the opportunity!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Just came across this video posted in a blog.. I have to say this is one of the best Tamil Hip Hop mix i have heard!!!
Watch it and I guarantee it will make you tap your feet.. shake your head and make your heart jump!!
A great remix of one of Raja’s great songs!!
Fellas, have you noticed the Romeo Chat at the bottom of this page? Meebo is a web 2.0 app. It lets you sign into your IM’s from a web page without the IM client installed! Plus, if you are signed on to Meebo, and you are visiting Chennai Romeos, you can chat with other meebo users who are reading our site!!
How cool is that??? So after you sign-up, next time you are here surfing around.. make sure you login to Meebo and maybe we can chat a little!
Also, Ravi. S asked a while back about how to keep track of what’s going on in this site. Some of the recent comments do appear in the side bar. If you are looking for comprehensive info on what’s been going on over the last month, get into the Dashboard and now WordPress has a neat way of displaying current activity!! I just love it…
If you are like me and try to keep track of your task lists at work and at home and on the quest for keeping things organized.. look no further! I think I have found the holy grail!!
Everyone has heard about Wikipedia and there wiki’s popping up everywhere. From this was born TiddlyWiki. From Wikipedia,
It is a non-linear way of storing information. The great thing about it is it’s portability. Because it’s all in a single html file, you can email it to yourself or store it in a USB flash drive or put it up in a web server and you can access it anywhere!!
Now you know what TiddlyWiki is. let’s move on to a another method for an organized nirvana called Getting Things Done by David Allen. Again from the Wikipedia,
GTD rests on the principle that a person needs to move tasks out of their mind and get them recorded somewhere. That way, the mind is freed from the job of remembering everything that needs to be done, and can concentrate fully on actually performing those tasks.
I came across an application which was a marriage between TiddlyWiki and GTD naturally named GTD TiddlyWiki on Lifehacker. That article has some nice instructions on how to get started with this. This was really nice but after reading the comments in that article I came across another variant called the Monkey GTD.
GTD TW was nice but lacked a way to organize tasks into Contexts/Projects and checking them off as I got done with them. Monkey GTD has a snazzy Dashboard with checkboxes for tasks which you can check off as you finish them. It was not very intuitive to start with.. but after playing with it for a couple of days, I am addcited to it now!!
I started using the MonkeyGTD and shuttling them between work and home through mailing it to my Gmail account. But, soon it seemed like a lot of work. Now, I had to remember to email myself at the end of the day and again email myself from home before I leave to work! There’s got be an elegant solution. How about hosting it on a web server and accessing it anywhere? Voila.. a great innovative idea right? I felt like Archimedes.. Not!
TiddlySpot has already done it and they offer various flavors of TiddlyWiki including MonkeyGTD. And for FREE.. yep free as in beer! And the registration can’t eb any easier.. it takes 10 secs to get your own site. You can make it public or private!
If anyone is interested in learning how to get started with MonkeyGTD, please leave a comment and I will follow up with a post on how to use it! I am not claiming to be an expert but I can share my experiences..
Get organized now!!
