Leave a comment

Some tweaking of MSN Spaces..Try out…But be careful..loading these files might make your space a slow loading one..And try to put small videos though!!

You can share any of your Yahoo Briefcase’s file by linking its address to your MSN Space entry!!! Chek out the way!! Here it goes!!!

How To – Add music/video to your MSN space

First, you need to download a link that allows you to carry out html editing in your Blog.
Click HERE.
Now Do as the page tells you. i.e. Save EDIT IT in your favorites.
To do that right click on the Edit It and click, Add to Favorites… and save it in  the links folder.
Good. First part is done!

     Now go to your Space, click on blog.
     Add a New entry.
     Click on the Edit it Button in your Favorites.
     Some thing like this comes Below the entry.Check tick the Box.
    
Use HTML to create your page. 
     Edit the HTML formatting commands directly.
    
Copy the Code below into your blog entry.
<img dynsrc="http://idisk.mac.com/jahorne/Public/Sunshine.mp3" width=1 height=1 alt="Ain’t no sunshine…">

This is the music code.
You may replace the source with your own file.
The part in blue is where the music file is. Te smaller it is the better.
Now publish the entry and preview your Space.

The music takes a while to download, but once its done you can hear it every time you preview your Space.

Note:- The blog entry must be visible on your Space in order for the music to start, or else you can hear it only when you are posting a comment into that entry. So when you are choosing a layout for your Space make sure the blog is in the middle and not in the sides.

Now you don’t the like the music that I gave with the link. What you can do is Upload your own music to some site or use Yahoo briefcase.

Copy the link shortcut(where it is saved on line) and Paste it in the place of the Blue code.and then paste the whole code with Html editing on.

Finished!!

As For video..
You need to do the same Procedure But add a Different Code.

Video Code:
<img start=mouseover height=240 alt="MSN Spaces — the Video" dynsrc="http://idisk.mac.com/jahorne/Public/powered_by_300.wmv" width=320 border=2>

Well host the video file on a site that allows you to or use Yahoo briefcase. (Google it and you will find something)
And paste the link instead of the blue code.
Mess around with the width aand border numbers in the code to get your desired size.

Well now you have got Video and Audio on your Space.
(thanks to
Shrenik)

Media Guns

“did you vote for Abhijeet sawant?” My friend asked me.

“who is he, and why should I vote for him?” I was least interested.

“What? tu Abhijit ko nahi janta?” He looked surprisingly. I was among the handful of Indians who didn’t know about the popular talent hunt show ’Indian Idol’. I heard my female colleagues chatting about the way Abhijeet moves while singing. I was forced to watch the show. And believe me, I was really impressed with the way SONY is promoting this product. They have got Music composers, Film directors and popular singer as their judges. They have got big filmy celebrities as their guests. And if this is not enough, they have got even apna Kapil Dev to do the toss! Man, they are not leaving even a single opportunity for promotion.

Its not that this is the first show which is showcasing the singing talent. But now the product is packaged so well that you just can‘t ignore its presence. It all about the media hype. Only media can make that boy next door, what they call an Indian Idol!

Take the case of our recent sensation, Sania Mirza. I’ve never seen people taking so much interest in tennis before. Now they follow tournament scores, championship schedules and are worried about her ankles. She appears as a guest editor on Times of India’s front page, she has been crowned by Saurav Ganguli for don’t know what, She has even started appearing on TV during commercial breaks showing how Tata Tea has helped her winning that trophy. Credit goes to our media.

How many of us still care about Tsunami victims now? We don’t, because media has stopped showing those scary images after few weeks of the incident. We were shaken by the disaster. We discussed how huge the waves were. Lot of NGOs mushroomed urging for the donation. Country’s top singers recorded special songs. Top actors performed shows to raise funds. Some generous personalities donated in millions. But then suddenly our sympathy vanished. Now, none of the actor has time to visit affected area, no channel shows the crying faces. No news paper carries the news about re-habilitation. After all the news should be entertaining.

But its not always the media who is in driver‘s seat. A 16 year old boy from small town in north India managed to fool our media guns. He claimed that he has passed a very difficult exam conducted by NASA. Now local news papers found some masala in it and spread the word. Others followed it without any probe. Mulayam Singh Yadav even announced Rs 5 lack as a reward. Members of the parliament donated their one day’s salary to help the poor boy. But when some enthusiastic enquired with NASA, they found the whole story was fake. NASA never conducts such exams. But don’t worry, after all it’s a news and media knows how to dish it out in style.

Whatever it is. But we always want to know when the prince Charles is getting married, which dress will Catharine wear on the Oscar night, with whom salman is dating these days or whats is that product which amitabh hasn’t endorsed yet.

After all, its entertaining.

Main GLT no 711..
Cubicle ke dewaron ke us paar dekhta hoon..
apni hi tarah
khaali baithe ek colleague ko dekhta hoon
kabhi mail karta
kabhi coffee peeta
kabhi Extn pe baat karta
Messenger pe chat karta rehta..

woh kehte hain woh TL hai
woh kehte hain woh senior hai
fir kyon mere jaisa lagta hai
kyon din bhar FORWARDS padhta hai
cubicle ki dewaron ke us paar dekhta hoon
cabin me baithe apne PM ko dekhta hoon
Main GLT no 711..

kabhi phone pe
kabhi conference-call pe
gussa utarta jaane kis pe
who kehte hain project aane wala hai
training complete karo , kaam aane wala hai
fir kyon mujhe yeh jhootha sa lagta hai
fir kyon yeh sapna sa lagta hai
Main GLT no 711..
cubicle ke dewaron ke us paar dekhta hoon

Doosri companiyon ko join kar chuke
purane doston ko dekhta hoon
woh kehte hain bond ka kya hai, chale jao
woh kehte hain kahin aur kismat aazmao
fir kyon bond todne se dil darta hai
abhi ek saal aur intezaar
karne ko jee karta hai

Main GLT no 711..
cubicle ki dewaron ke us paar dekhta hoon …

Real love

Leave a comment

And I am against plastic flowers. The real flowers have many differences;
the plastic flowers are permanent — the plastic love will be permanent.
The real flower is not permanent, it is changing moment to moment.
Today it is there dancing in the wind and in the sun and in the rain.
Tomorrow you will not be able to find it — it has disappeared
just as mysteriously as it has appeared.
Real love is like a real flower.

Self Appraisal

A little boy went into a drug store, reached for a soda carton and pulled it over to the telephone. He climbed onto the carton so that he could reach the buttons on the phone and proceeded to punch in seven digits. The storeowner listened to the following conversation.
The boy asked, "Lady, Can you give me the job of cutting your lawn?"
The woman replied, "I already have someone to cut my lawn
"Lady, I will cut your lawn for half the price of the person who cuts your lawn now."
The woman responded that she was very satisfied with the person who was presently cutting her lawn.
The little boy found more perseverance and offered, "Lady, I’ll even sweep your curb and your sidewalk, so on Sunday you will have the prettiest lawn in all of North Palm Beach, Florida."
Again the woman answered in the negative.
With a smile on his face, the little boy replaced the receiver.

The druggist, who was listening to all this, walked over to the boy and said, "Son… I like your attitude, I like that positive spirit and would like to offer you a job."
The little boy replied, "No thanks ! I was just checking on the job I already have!"
