No longer temporary guys..... Looking back

My notepad… pencils and a cuppa coffee (I love the mug with RA inscription) and excel sheets (not shown :-)) are my best friends in office.

I’ve completed six months at RedAlkemi on 12th march (incidentally Pawan’s birthday too)….. I’m a RedAlkemi graduate now…...Alright!!! Hooray

Realkemi has given me a great start to my career… the best part was to start your working life with friends and that too friends like Amandeep.... (I don’t know if I can thank you enough Sandhu).... And Pancham actually polished me to some extent.. and gave me someone I can look up to and say.. that’s how we should do it…

Well guys I getting a little emotional now… I guess

But a great time nonetheless.. And Cheers to even better time ahead….

I have to say this yar

“Life mein maza a gaya yar… (Pancham’s influence)
Bharat mat ki jai…. ki jai…… ki jai”

Tab Mix Extension for firefox

Are you one of those so used to tabbed browsing courtesy firefox (I am!!). And If the browser crashes on you while you were in the middle of a research on your assignment with the deadline for that very day -Fucked!! I have a solution to that.... (I'm almost sounding like a firefox
salesman right now :-0)

This extension Tab Mix Plus enhances tabbed browsing capabilities like tab focus, duplication...... bla blah ...... The best feature according to me is the Session Manager with crash recovery that can save and restore combinations of opened tabs and windows (Koolio)

Just check it out HERE

Extensions Galore..... One for Programmers

This extension by firefox makes developers and programmers life so much easier. They can check for their HTML code and debug it there and then.

Since I keep working with programmers all the time, I have to admit this is one of the most useful firefox extension in a long time. I got hold of it a little later in the day though (It was released in February 2006) but then as long as it still works for me :-)

Whois Plugin for Firefox

Check out the new Active Whois plugin for firefox. It lets you get all Kinds of Whois Info - DNS record, Domain Owner and IP Address.

So whats different from the other whois tools existing for ages (I mean 3-4 years).

One , it is integrated within your browser

Two, it also installs a whois application on your system. So you can simpley check it by opening the application (without the browser)

Three, It keeps the record of the whois that you have already checked. I'm not sure how big the storage is, but I'm guessing enough to check all whois in a session.
