Information on UK Broadband Service Providers

My contract with Tiscali expired recently and was looking at an alternative. All the service providers were offering bundle offers with TV and Phone. In a confused state, I came across this forum

In this forum, People discuss about their broadband services and feedback about their service providers. Actually I had made my mind not take a contract with BT as they have 18 month contract and the next alternative was Virgin Media (earlier known as NTL).

I went through a post where users have provided comments regarding the Quality of service of Virgin Media. Though it was not easy to make a decision even after reading the post, it gave me a bit of confident that it is not the worst service provider in terms of speed as well as Customer service. Right now, I am signed with Virgin and now a satisfied user in terms of speed and customer service.

This forum provides details about every available service provider in the UK. I doubt if any service provider is missing as they also provide information about the mobile broadband.

Following are the different broadband discussed on the forum:
 AOL broadband
 BT Broadband
 Tiscali Broadband
 Pipex Broadband
 UK Online Broadband
 Tesco Broadband
 Demon Broadband
 Be Broadband
 Talk Talk Broadband
 Toucan Broadband
 Virgin Media Broadband
 Sky Broadband
 Orange Broadband
 Madasafish Broadband
 Vodafone Broadband
 O2 Broadband

Notebooks distribution to 1st-8th standard student (Cost: 10K)

Ooratchi Onriya Nadu Nilai Palli (Govt. School), Sendrampalayam,Kinathukadavu.

Sendrampalayam is a village, located near Thamaraikulam which is on the pollachi-coimbatore main road. 25 kms from coimbatore and 15 kms from pollachi. The Govt school here teaches till 8th standard.

Initially we thought to select the students who are poor and provide them notebooks.
But in that area 80% of the students are poor. So there is no point in differentiating between the students. So, we got the list of notebooks needed for the students from the HM of the school. We approached the press which makes the notebooks for the students. He provided us with the discounted price.The cost worked out to be ~34k.

Since the amount was more, We took out the long size notes and few others from the list.(1 long size note is Rs. 20 and ~1000 were requested). Finally gave the order for the remaining notebooks. The cost worked out to be ~10K.

Note books were distributed to students.

App sharing on IPhone!

Finally some good news for IPhone users. The apple developers and hackers have revealed a new feature on IPhone 3.0 OS. The feature was a secret until now,which allows App sharing between the IPhone users. The Initial comments from experts indicate this will allow one person to buy an application and share it with others.

Normally IPhone users download the new Apps depending on the reviews integrated with each App. What if those people who use the app which was shared by another user try to make a comment on the App? Will that increase sales or decrease sales? Well,Apple have another feature to overcome this issue by adding an verification process to identify if you are the owner of the App and allow only the owners to write a review on a particular App.

The transfer mode still remains a million dollar question with Bluetooth being the preferred mode.

ProtocolUnknown Error

As you all know, Protocol is a standard set of rules that can be interpreted as the point of control for any connection,communication or data transfer between any computing endpoints.Most of us who are well known with the protocol, might not be aware of Protocolunknown error.

Protocolunknown provides more information on this error. According to this link, this error is more frequent than we all expect and can be noticed while installing software or any hardware.

How did we not come across protocol unknown error in our life so far? The reason behind is probably we don't spend more time to even read what the error message actually is.What do we do?... just press escape or skip or OK to exit the window immediately after the display of error messages without even caring to have a look at it :-)


Modhi vilayadu Tamil Mp3 songs download

Modi vilayadhu - Starring Vinay as the lead and Kajal Agarwal is casted opposite to him. Movie is directed by Saran who has few hit films like 'Partaen rasitaen', 'Gemini','Amrakalam' against his name. Colonial cousins have scored the music after a very long time. Let me refresh your minds who colonial cousins are - Singer Hariharan and Leslie Lewis (Remember the song " Krishna nee begane" album?). I guess this is their first movie as a music directors. Metro Films have produced this film. I have heard the songs from this movie and they look average for me.

Files with Extension PTX

Another common file extension interpreted as error are the files with .ptx extension. The File extension ptx cannot exist nor work individually without other associated files.

File extension ptx provides more information on .ptx files. These files are actually created by other executable while installing.

The ptx errors are thrown by the system when a user deletes a file with ptx extension. Mostly this type of files are considered to be less significant files by the users, the chances for Ptx errors are more likely to occur. It is a best practise to keep a note of applications which install .ptx files which might avoid the deletion of such files.

FireFox - Design Challenge Summer 09

Do you remember why people started using FireFox more than Internet explorer? If not its the Tab option in the browser which prompted a lot of users to use FireFox browsers. The Tabs in the browser was a huge success and all the other browsers developers started to include with their browsers and Microsoft was the last to implement the tabs in Internet explorer 7.0 if I remember correctly.

I know what you are thinking, why am I mentioning about this after these many years? The reason ,FireFox is planning to exclude the tabs option in its next release and is having a competition for us to give out an alternatives to the tabs we are using. They are calling it as " Design challenge summer 09" and the question is as follows :
"Reinventing Tabs in the Browser - How can we create, navigate and manage multiple web sites within the same browser instance?"

To be honest,I am more than satisfied with the Tabs but if any of you who read this post have any innovative ideas then please do participate in FireFox's challenge.

IPhone SDK terms updated for developers

Apple is facing a huge threat from their rival "Cydia" who are releasing a lot of Apps before they are available in App store. The secret behind most of the apps available in cydia are either rejected apps by Apple or developers who don't want to go through Apple. This has forced Apple to change their IPhone SDK terms which restrict the developers to develop only for Apple and sign the updated terms. The updated terms :

"Applications developed using the Apple Software may only be distributed if selected by Apple (in its sole discretion) for distribution via the App Store or for limited distribution on Registered Devices (ad hoc distribution) as contemplated in this Agreement"

Apple are now entitled to take legal actions against developers bypassing Apple and build the business through releasing apps to competitors like Cydia. Sure, SDK developers will have an alternative for Apples Terms.


Rumour: Better camera in the next IPhone Version

Latest rumour floating around the world "Apple's release of next version of IPhone". It will be having a 3.2MP camera with 3.2MP CMOS sensor from omnivision. With this we expect the capabilities of camera to improve and utilised properly for the first time in IPhone. Another rumour linked with the IPhone camera is apple are in talk to include a 5 MP CMOS sensor. Apple has not officially advertised this feature nor they have declined the statements. Just days before,Apple announced its 3.0 software.Is apple planning to release the next IPhone? What would they call it? IPhone 4G ,5G?Any guesses ?

Mariyadhai Mp3 songs Download

Maridathai has Vijaykanth in the lead doing a double role as usual. Meena,Meera jasmine and Ambika are the so called Heroines of this movie. Vikraman directs this movie and his combination with vijaykanth have created a buzz in kollywood as their earlier venture "Vaanathai Pola" was a huge hit. Can't expect other than ramesh kanna to handle the comedy in Vikraman's movie. We can expect a lot of "la la la" songs and "twink" music for comedy in this "DIFFERENT" movie. Surprisingly its not S.A. Rajkumar or Sirpi for music, its the Nakka mukka Fame Vijay anthony. It will interesting to see Vijaykanth dancing for a fast song like " nakka mukka" May be that's a little too much :-)

Download the songs from the link below in .rar format
