Was watching a Japanese drama by name "Satorare" which deals with a fictitious health condition that afflicts 1 in a core people.People who are afflicted by this it seems can communicate their thoughts unknowing to others around him or her in a limited range.The people who are born this way are monitored by Government agencies.These people supposedly are geniuses.
Overall an interesting theme.The soap was thought provoking ,funny as well as interesting

Unable to browse in openSUSE

When i started out on Linux more specifically openSUSE 11.0/Gnome i had trouble browsing the internet using firefox , seamonkey.The browser would work well for the first minute then it would be non responsive or very slow in loading the pages.The same problem would not occur on opera.
The issue seems to have been with my network connection couldn't support IPV6 protocols.This issue should afflict other gecko based browsers like flock

The issue was solved using the following solution:-

In firefox address bar type in "about:config" and press return/enter
Then accept the warning page
Look for .. network.dns.disableIPv6 and set it to "true".

This will fix the problem instantly

Totem crash resolved!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Whenever i used to play audio files like mp3 on Totem it used to crash.
Totem used to work fine on openSUSE 11.0/gnome
The problem started when i switched to Gnome/openSUSE 11.2
I reinstalled entire codec packs for Gnome/openSUSE 11.2,ugly,bad what not!!!
Then finally I switched off the visualization by name "GOOM" and everything works fine now.
I should have realized this long ago as i found that Totem did not crash when playing video files like "avi"

Correct way to match Donor's blood and recipient blood


Always ask, Never assume!!

Read a great mail hence sharing the same:-

His request approved, the CNN News photographer quickly called the local airport to charter a flight. He was told a twin-engine plane would be waiting for him at the airport.
Arriving at the airfield, he spotted a plane warming up outside a hangar. He jumped in with his bag, slammed the door shut, and shouted, 'Let's go'.
The pilot taxied out, swung the plane into the wind and took off.
Once in the air, the photographer instructed the pilot, 'Fly over the valley and make low passes so I can take pictures of the fires on the hillsides.'
Why?' asked the pilot.
'Because I'm a photographer for CNN,' he responded, 'and I need to get some close up shots.'
The pilot was silent for a moment. Finally he stammered, 'So, what you're telling me, is ... You're NOT my flight instructor?'

Ahimsa,mosquitoe bites

Read an interesting web article about ahimsa.It give you some answers about whether killing mosquitoes consists of himsa or violence.Here is the content :-

Questioner: What steps should we take to deal with all the bedbugs, mosquitoes and cockroaches in the house?

Dadashri: To prevent them from infesting the home, you should clean the home and keep it clean. You should catch the roaches, take them outside and throw them far away, but you should not kill them under any circumstance.
Once I was invited to a very prominent man’s home. He made the statement that bedbugs ought to be killed because they bite and suck blood. I asked him where it was written, that the bedbugs should be killed. I explained to him that a person has a right to kill a bedbug only if he is able to create one. The general rule is that you cannot destroy what you cannot create.

Questioner: So why do the bedbugs come to bite?

Dadashri: They do so because you have a pending debt with them. Your body does not belong to you alone. It is not your property in the first place, you have ‘stolen’ it and so the bedbugs are stealing from you. When they bite you, your accounts are being settled and your debts are being paid off. So from now on, do not kill them.
