Too Stupidly Good - India : Pak War

Scenario 1. During the Cold War, if USA launched a nuke-loaded missile, Soviet Satellites would   inform the Soviet army in 3 seconds and in less than 45 seconds Soviet counter-missiles would be on their way.

Scenario 2. Recent studies commissioned by US department of Defense included one on nuclear war between India and Pakistan :

3. This was the scenario.... ......... ...

Pakistani Side: The Pakistan army decides to launch a nuke-missile towards India. They don\'t need any permission from their government, and promptly order the countdowns. Indian technology is highly advanced. In less than 8 seconds, Indian army detects the Pak countdown and decides to launch a missile in retribution.

Indian Side: But they need permission from the Government of India. They submit their request to the Indian President. The President forwards it to the Cabinet.

The Prime Minister calls an emergency Lok Sabha session. The LS meets, but due to several walkouts and severe protests by the opposition, it gets adjourned indefinitely.
The President asks for a quick decision.

Pakistani Side: In the mean time, the Pak missile failed to take off due to technical failure. Their attempts for a re-launch are still on.

Indian Side: Just then the Indian ruling party is reduced to a minority because a party that was giving outside support withdraws it. The President asks the PM to prove his majority within a week. As the ruling party fails to win the confidence vote, a caretaker government is installed.

The caretaker PM decides to permit the armed forces to launch a nuclear missile. But the Election Commission says that a caretaker government cannot take such a
decision because elections are at hand.

The Election Commission files Public Interest Litigation in the Supreme Court alleging misuse of power. The Supreme Court comes to the rescue of the PM, and says the acting! PM is authorized to take this decision in view of the emergency facing the
nation.

Pakistani Side: Just then one of the Pak missiles successfully took off, but it fell 367 miles away from the target, on its own government building in Islamabad at 11.00 AM. Fortunately there were no casualties as no employee had reached the office that early. In any case, the
nuclear core of the missile had detached somewhere in flight. The Pakistan army is now trying to get better technologies from China and USA .

Indian Side: The Indian Government, taking no chances, decides to launch a nuclear missile of its own, after convening an all-party meeting. This time all the parties agree. Its three months since the army had sought permission. But as preparations begin, \"pro-humanity\" , \"anti-nuclear\" activists come out against theGovernment\' s decision. Human chains are formed and Rasta rokos organized. In California and Washington endless e-mails are sent to Indians condemning the government and mentioning \"Please forward it to as many Indians as possible\".

Pakistani Side:On the Pakistan side, the missiles kept malfunctioning. Some missiles deviate from target due to technical failures or high-speed wind blowing over Rajasthan. Many of them land in the Indian Ocean killing some fishes.

A missile (smuggled from USA) is pressed into service. Since the Pakistan army is unable to understand its software, it hits it original destination: Russia. Russians successfully intercepts the missile and in retaliation launches a nuclear missile towards Islamabad . The missile hits the target and creates havoc.

Pakistan cries for help. India expresses deep regrets for what has happened and sends in a million dollars worth of Parle-G biscuits.

Thus India never gets to launch the missile. Pakistan never gets it right. And both live happily ever after!!!! .

Twitterfeed

Twitter offers instant communication and the power of microblogging — short, 140-character postings made accessible to and from computers and cell phones.

Since few months i have been using twitter extensively but its very tedious to update your blog everytime and also tweet about your latest blog on your tweeter account. So if you tweet using RSS feeds than every post you do on your blog or website gets posted automatically on your twitter account. So no need to update it manually :)

The following steps will help you understand how to really do it -

1. Login to your basic twitter account or create one.

2. Create an account at TwitterFeed. Sign up is easy and fast. You can do it at one click with an existing email address.

3. Once you create an account and are logged in, you can add your RSS feed to your twitter profile. Enter the name of the blog and RSS feed in the fields provided. You will understand as you go.

4. Advance Settings: You can change the settings like updating frequency, post sorting, adding prefix or postfix, using shortened link and keyword filter. Click on “Done”.

5. Choose Twitter service and authenticate your Twitter Account and Click “ Create”.

Click on Done.

Continue the same process for multiple blog RSS to be added on twitter.

Now you can relax as everytime you post something on blog will be automatically added as a tweet on your designated twitter account. Hitarth Jani [dot] com uses same method to post tweets and hence drives huge traffic.

Joomla Migration

Hello all,

Wondering where i was and why i didnt write up anything lately on my website ? With the new looks of my website you would have already guessed what i was doing.

Yes, you guessed it right. I have migrated my website from Joomla 1.0.15  to 1.5.22. Here i am trying to write down the steps i took to migrate my website. I havent put any pics or videos to show but i think my language is easy enough to understand. But before i start writing the steps please note the following things:

Important Notes:

Please note that it is highly recommended to fully BACKUP your website... errrrr Your Joomla 1.0 website. :)

Please also note that Joomla migration will only migrate the content of your Joomla 1.0.x and not Third Party Components, Modules and Plugins.

Alrity, here we go now :)

Step 1: Install the Migrator Component

The first step is to install the Migrator component to your existing Joomla 1.0.x web site. You can download the Migrator component available on Internet. The current version available is Version 1.5.

It can be installed as any other component you install into your Joomla 1.0.x. and could be accessed from Components -> Migrator at the top. This is the component that helps migrate all conents from Joomla 1.0.x to Joomla 1.5.x

Step 2: Third Party ETL Plugins

Many 3rd Party extensions have ETL plugins that can be downloaded from Extensions Directory. These ETL plugins migrates data from Joomla 1.0.x to Joomla 1.5.x. When we create Migration SQL file in Step 3 we can use these plugins to migrate the Third Party extensions data.

If there is no such ETL plugin available search around in internet about how to migrate a particular 3rd party extension into Joomla 1.5.x. Almost in most of the cases first we import the Database table for that extension and install that extension in Joomla 1.5.x at a later stage after the basic migration is done.

Step 3: Create Migration SQL File

On the Migrator Component screen click on Create Migration SQL file located at the bottom of the page. This will create a SQL dump that can be imported in the latest version of Joomla.

After creation, download this SQL dump on your local computer.

Step 4: Make a clean Joomla 1.5.x Install

Now that everything related to Joomla 1.0.x is done its time to install Joomla 1.5.x manually. Yes, it is important to intall it manually rather than using Fantastico or other services. Install it in a new folder on the hosting server say, dev.

Proceed with the installation untill you reach Step 6: Configuation

The key part in this step is to select Load Migration Script option.

After that browse and select that Migration SQL file that we created in Step 3 and proceed.

Once the data is imported Joomla 1.5.x install is complete and you will be able to see the contents of your Joomla 1.0.x into Joomla 1.5.x.

Please also note that it is recommended to delete Install directory after the installation is complete :)

Hope this small tutorial is helpful to everybody in understand the migration process of Joomla.

Kaaran Mane Game Che - Amrut Ghayal

કાજળભર્યા નયનનાં કામણ મને ગમે છે,
કારણ નહીં જ આપું, કારણ મને ગમે છે. 

લજ્જા થકી નમેલી પાંપણ મને ગમે છે,
ભાવે છે ભાર મનને ભારણ મને ગમે છે. 

જીવન અને મરણની હરક્ષણ મને ગમે છે,
કે ઝેર પણ ગમે છે મારણ મને ગમે છે.    

ખોટી તો ખોટી હૈયાધારણ મને ગમે છે,
રણ હોય ઝાંઝવાનાં તો પણ મને ગમે છે.

સુંદર બની ગયું છે કંઇ ઓર દિલ મટિને,
તૂટી ગયું છે તો યે દર્પણ મને ગમે છે.     

લાવે છે યાદ ફૂલો છાબો ભરી ભરીને,
છે ખૂબ મ્હોબતીલી માલણ મને ગમે છે.   

આવી ગયાં છો આંસુ લૂછો નહીં ભલાં થઈ,
એ બારે માસ લીલાં તોરણ મને ગમે છે.   

લજ્જાના બંધ તોડી ઝુલ્ફો દિયો વિખેરી,
જીવન બને છો વેરણછેરણ, મને ગમે છે. 

હું એટલે તો એને વેંઢારતો રહં છું,
સોગંદ, જિંદગીનાં વળગણ મને ગમે છે.    

દિલ શું હવે હું પાછી દુનિયા ય પણ નહીં દઉં,
એ પણ મને ગમે છે, આ પણ મને ગમે છે.

હસવું અચૂક હસવું, દુઃખમાંય મુક્ત હસવું,
દીવાનગી તણું આ ડહાપણ મને ગમે છે.

ભેટ્યો છું મોતને પણ કઇ વાર જિંદગીમાં,
આ ખોળિયાની જેમ જ ખાંપણ મને ગમે છે.

ઘાયલ મને મુબારક આ ઊર્મિકાવ્ય મારાં,
મેં રોઇને ભર્યા છે એ રણ મને ગમે છે.

અમ્રુત 'ઘાયલ'

No change what so ever. Infact i am trying to put some more useful things for Joomla users in downloads section soon.
