Vetri and gv came here saturday night, i made potato gravy for the night as vetri came with chicken and chips. Watched TV and slept early that day. Sunday was fun, gv made his so called vatha kolombu, vetri made vendakaai poriyal and i just helped them. Though vatha kolumbu was not what it meant to be, but it was nice. We played shuttle in the evening and then went outside to have dinner. Vetri got us some sweets as he has become 'mama'. Gv left late evening and vetri stayed. Monday morning parents returned from s'pore. Yesterday whole day i was just talking to them asking about the place and looking at thier shopping. Thats the reason no blogs for two days. Today i spoke with deepak trehan, my DAV school mate after almost 2 years. He is in haridwar now working for BHEL and said that he is going to banglore this month end and might meet me on the way. If i meet him it will be more than 8 years since we last met each other. Once he came to chennai and was on his way to kerala. He was with his college friends on a college tour, but i missed him by mins. I hope this time i make it in time. sms time:
If I were to be anything in this world….
I’d be ur tears!!!…
So, I can be conceived in ur heart
born in ur eyes
live on ur cheeks & die on ur lips!!!!!
pul arikira madhiri onu :
It takes half our life to find
true friends & half of it keeping them.
I am lucky to have spent less than half
my life finding you & wish
to spend the rest keeping you.
sms of the day:
Yes, God made you first,
but there is always a rough draft before the final copy
Thats all i have for the day, hopefully will get more intresting ones tomm. and with that i am signing off for the day.

Weird things happen to my computer, and today it behaved very badly. It automatically got connected to some stupid connection and loads only one page - some messenger page, it does not access any other site. I cleared the cache and still it loads whenever i open the browser. I cant see any icon on my task bar. The phone line becomes busy and i dont know how to stop it. The only solution was to reboot. After rebooting it automatically got connected. I just got fed up and turned it off. Now i started it and it is working properly! hmmm..... i need to consult my expert -google. Nawaz called me today, he is coming in 10 days and obviously he is excited about the trip. Selva asusual is very busy it seems. No idea what alex is doing, i guess he must be bit upset that is not going to make it this christmas. Vetri and gv are coming and hopefully i will cook something for them. I spoke with shyam yesterday, he is in bangalore now and learning J2EE. Spoke to him after a very long time, he is still same... warm and welcoming. I might go to bangalore next month and might see him. No news from bharathi and i have no idea what he is doing. Ok guys its sms time
Could u fax me ur photo
very very urgently ?
Mind u - it's really very
very urgent, damn serious
and very imp ..... I'm playing
cards and we've misplaced
the JOKER.
Another one that i got today:
Maine puchha chand se
"dekha hai kahin mere yaar sa hasin",
chand ne kaha
"saale itni upar se dikhta hai kya"
And the best for one of the day:
Dark were those days,
without your sight.
When I was in darkness,
you gave me light.
You gave me strength 2
make life bright.
Thank you so much
They are better when scroll and read them on your mobile.Ok guys thats all for the day time to say goodbye.

It was a beautiful day to start, it was cold in the morning and then it was very pleasant. Washed my clothes had a good shower and i am just enjoying the day. It is evening now, studied very little. I get distracted very easily now a days. Dinner is alomost ready, i dunno if GV is coming home! he said that he will call me. It was fun last three days. Vetri said that he cannot make it today as he has loads of work in the office. Parents called me, dads training is over and they are coming back on monday. They are just left with saturday and sunday to look around , but i was told thats enough to see s'pore.
sms of the day:
You are the best heart
surgeon in the world
coz you made a place in
my heart without cutting
and spilling blood. I am lucky
to have a lovely friend like you...
These sms are short and sweet. Coming back to computer problems, i have a new problem. Remember the error that i was telling: c:\Windows\System32\Autoexec.nt The system file is not suitable for running MS-DOS and Microsoft Windows applications. Choose 'Close' to terminate the application.
This is weird problem, i have the patch for this problem, which is nothing but a proper autoexec.nt file that i have to save in the systems32 folder. Once i do that the 16-bit DOS appliction works, the trouble starts whenever i reboot the system. I get the same error message. I have to once again repatch it, what could be the problem? could be because of system restore? i have no idea but i am doing it again and again without knowing the reason.
Any idea?

Another day

One more boring day, nothing interesting happened today as though something always happens. Not much progress as far as the Job hunt is concerned. Same mails I get everyday about the openings but hell some shit happens after I mail them back. Still fingers crossed Cheer up da ( to myself), I got this good SMS which goes like this:
you know why god created
gap between the fingers?
So that some day the one
who is made for you,comes
and fill those gaps by holding
your hand forever.....
Good one isn't it? I am going to get a very heavy Mobile Bill. I cant help it, I talk a lot over the phone. I am trying to control but I dunno when i will.
I saw punch dialogue of Big B :
mard ho tho dard nahi hota
He says this in his typical style(kudos!), thinking of punch dialogoues i cant resist kollywood
Simbu says:
modhalae first yaar poranu mukiyam illa
Last le First yaar varanu mukiyam
Vijakanth says:
puyal adichu thupichaven irukaan
ana indha thavasi adichu pulaichavanae kidaiyadhu!
naan oru dharam soluvein, orae dharam dhaan soluvein!
There are many more but i dont remember now. Some of them are just too much. If anyone remembers some dubakoor punch dialogues then leave them as comment.
I am signing-off for the day.

Into kitchen

Being alone is boring. I am just bored of TV, all the TV serials have just one motto " cry cry and keep crying" at times its just sick. I wonder how the actors and actresses in these shows manage to cry everyday( glyserene may help but even then) . Vetri and gv stayed with me yesterday night, we were talking for sometime before we hit the bed.Spoke with Bharathi yesterday and today, i always knew that this guy was always confused but now i think even the people around him get confused. Poor fellow as usual is totally confused and i just hope that whatever happens to him, should be for his good. Still no sign of any interview or tests, i am keeping my fingers crossed. I spoke to vomshankar yesterday and he was asking my plans! this guy was my classmate in Swinburne, extremely hard working guy, he worked so hard that he cleared his MS loan debt by doing just part time. Shyam mailed me ( another classmate) he is doing J2EE course in bangalore. Been a while that i spoke with shyam. Vetri said that he will come today, no news from gv so i guess that he is not coming. Have to cook rice and potato side dish. Time to cook. catch up later

Home alone

Yesterday for once, my sleep pattern was like in Australia- sensitve and extremely cautious. I was alone and that could be the reason. Yesterday amma went to S'pore for a week, before she left she told me the list of people who come in the morning- Newspaper man,milk man,lady who brings flowers and and person who comes to clean car. All this happens everyday before 7, all these days i never heard the bell and never had i seen any of them. Today was testing time, i could even hear the person who comes and sweeps the road early in the morning. Do we naturally become alert when left alone or when we are with someone less cautious?i mean where you are with ppl like Nawaz who would sleep even if a truck went by his side ;-), thats definately God's gift but... I wanted to write something yesterday itself, but was helping amma with her packing. Spoke with a few people today-jk is goign to hyd to attend a test, susi in blore and vetri who woke me in the morning and now in the evening. Gv said that he will come tonight, but his plans keep changing so until he comes, i cant be sure about him. I dont have anything intresting to write today.

I am spending almost 2 hours everyday just fixing bugs in my computer. Connecting to the internet is like entering a battle field. Everytime i connect to the internet i find some new process running in task manager. I only can see the processes that show themselves in the task manager, but what about those which i cant detect. Atleast now i realise that even the latest ANTI-VIRUS cant help much coz new malwares and spywares are created every day. When i was i Australia nawaz and myself used to see a lot of unwanted processes running that always were responsible for unwanted pop-ups. We used to delete those processes and find them back the very next day. We actually only deleted the processes and never knew or thought of removing them from the registry(regedit). The latest malware or spyware i saw yesterday was salm.exe this one is a curious fello he has to be definately removed and also many others along with him. The information that i got from a website is as follows:180Search Assistant(salm.exe)is generally installed by some other piece of spyware. This not only displays ads but logs your browsing habits to send back to 180! If you have this you most likely have several other programs that you need to uninstall. This malware could have been the reason that i was getting popups like smiley central. I am not sure whether it was behind the mischief. There was one more process that i found in msconfig which called itself bgtit.exe. I could not find anything about this process, may be even this was a spyware or a malware, coz this is not a system process. In one site its written that if some process in the in WINDOWS directory and it is not a system process then there is a high possibility that it is a malware or a spyware. For the last two days i was not able to open any 16-bit DOS application and got an error as follows: c:\Windows\System32\Autoexec.nt The system file is not suitable for running MS-DOS and Microsoft Windows applications. Choose 'Close' to terminate the application. I found the solution in this site. Meanwhile my close friend whom i was talking about 2-3 days back is still gloomy and that makes me more worried. I was told that he is coming to his home country but i dont have any news about him. One blog that i would recommend to people who happen to read my blogs: site Well thats all from me for the moment i have much work to do. I have to go to JB nagar and photocopy a few things, then i have to study. Whenever i sit in front of the computer to study i start looking at the processes and start doing crapy things.

viRus viRus everywhere

Installing and running the latest Anti-virus cannot always assure you. I have Norton internet security 2004 installed and still i found my system has 159 infected files. I found this from Panda active security, this is an online scaning system. Since this is an online site where you can scan your computer for viruses, it might get updated everyday for new definitions. Yesterday another peculiar thing happened, i had to restart the computer because it was not responding. After a succesful restart i kept getting messages to connect to the internet and the message that it gave was"you(or a program)have requested information from which connection do you want to choose?" and the sites that it wanted to access were sites like irc, angelfire and these sites i have never visited. I saw in the task manager a process called rasautou.exe was responsible for thisThis from google searches i found out was a system process and was Microsoft Remote Access Dialler. The description for this from a site was as follows: rasautou.exe is the Microsoft Remote Access Dialler process. It is used by the system or by third party applications to manage modem connections. This program is non-essential process to the running of the system, but should not be terminated unless suspected to be causing problems.That is well understood but why is it trying to access the sites that i have never visted, of course it was trying to access yahoo site as well. As for the poxwx file, guess it is a malware and thats what people say in a forum which discusses the problem with XP. Yesterday that was what i did. i studied very little and most of the time i wasted. Got a call from thiru today and spoke to gv yesterday. Appa has gone to Singapore and amma will also join appa, amma is starting 7 night and will be back by 13 along with appa. This is first time amma is travelling outside india and i am excited more than her. Thats it for the day and hey i have added a process finder in the blog so that i will atleast get to know what kind of a process in running.

How frustrated can a person be because of a girl? No, I am not talking about myself, i am talking about my very close friend. Never seen him so dull and gloomy. I never knew that he was all that serious about that girl! not that i would have changed his life had i known earler. Yesterday was that first time i saw him emotional and feeling guilty. I know that he will come out of this very soon but at the moment he is drained. No more comments on this issue, let me think what i did yesterday. I din study as i intended to after finishing blogging, i wasted my time. I was actually wondering what poxwx.exe is which i found in my task manager. I could not find anything conclusive about this .exe file from google searches. For the moment i have just disabled it from msconfigs' startup. XP i think is a nightmare OS to have with so many ports open to attack. while doing this i found a new search engine ixquick, seems to equally good. It calls itself meta search engine wonder what it is? and how different it is from the normal ones( if the normal ones are not meta search engines). Long back when i started blogging(just 3-4 months ago) i was introducing my friends. Here i continue with my next friend thiRumathi. A very good friend who used to be very sensitive has changed a lot still she is a bit sensitive. One person to whom you can polambify(hee hee) ,atleast she listens carefully. thats all for now will keep updating about my friends.


Its already evening now, end of another day. As per schedule i should start to Melbourne tommorrow but i have postponed the ticket. I guess thats what the malaysian airlines people have done. I am not sure as to what they have done, i gave them the money and ticket and asked to postpone it, but after a week a got an envelope with the ticket and the money. one person says that its been done successfully, but there is nothing written over the ticket.I will have to wait for appa to come back and check it. I have a strange feeling that the transperency is absent in India. The companies are not at all bothered, atleast thats what i presume. I guess thats mainly because of the call centers. For any querries for any product we call the call center and most of them working in there do not know ins and out about the product. I call satyam for a problem in my internet connection(sify) and the girl does not understand the problem and just gives the basic solution. I still do not know why the problem occurs. If anyone reading this knows pls lemme know in the comments. I have a dial-up connection, when i connect to the internet it gets connected, i mean the server authenticates my username and password. The problem occurs when i try to browse any site, i see the message in status bar "FINDING SITE:WWW.XYZ.COM" and after 1-2 mins the browser displays PAGE NOT AVAILABLE. The problem which i think is i tried pinging the DNS server and i could not reach it. I have no reason why this thing happens. This does not happen always, i face this problem only at times and i usually solve this by doing a dumb thing either i reconnect or restart the system and it works most of the time. Does anyone know what is the real problem? and what could be the proper solution. Hope i get a solution for this problem very soon.The day so far was pretty cool, i have to study for the day. enough of blogging for the day.

---Not him----

The news for over a fortnight in Tamil Nadu is over the contrversial arrest of the seer of Kanchipuram. He was arrested for a murder case, Kanchi shankarachariyar is equalled with Pope and imam. His midnight arrest (dont think of karunanidhi) made first page news in all the news papers almost only month after veerappans encounter. The last thing to happen now is that seer has himself confessed that he ordered the murder in "a moment of weakness". Things like this can only happen in Tamil Nadu. My personal opinion is that, today even the media is causing a lot of damage to the society. One of the most respected News channel a week ago discussed about the seers' arrest in a programme called BIG FIGHT. The programme apart from discussing the arrest took a different turn and started concentrating on Brahmin-Non Brahmin problems in TN and congress' involvement in the arrest. These media people inorder to attract viewers instigate irrelevant problems, and this is not the only case and the only channel doing that. The ambani brothers household problem is now blown out of propotions, which i think would have been solved without the media intervention. We need media but at the same time we need it only to tell us the facts, with so many news channels around each channel wants to highlight some issue, which may be unnecessary. But then it is the survival of the fittest. Ok coming back to, i did nothing usefull yesterday apart from taking rest and eating. Today has been pleasent so far and things are going fine. GV, vetri and thiru called me today. i want to set a deadline for my cisco but so far the preparation has been gloomy and very slow. Guess should start reading now enough of blogging today.
