A New Way Of Remote Computing

click to enlarge the image. preview of the virtual environment is a online virtual computing environment running on linux based kernel but GUI and all is just like a modern vista aero interface. It is an implementation of a white paper on Virtual Computing New Era. Ghost offers a remote computing environment using any flash enabled browser from anywhere in the world at any time. Few features that are noticable is that It is cross plateform and has endless possibilities, even you can surf web using its own IP and proxies.

It is a complete Virtual Computer, Web OS and Online storage. It is secured and amazon certified. Using Ghost, you can virtually do -

  • Manage your files, apps etc

  • Storage upto 3 GB for your data and 3 GB for emails.

  • Integrated Email service , a POP3 capable client

  • Integrated IM service

  • Way to explore various online services which are woven within it like flickr, zoho,, google and lots there waiting for you

  • Has a ftp support @ ftp:\\

you might be thinking that with so many things and also that on a web based plateform might be heavy and suck your bandwidth but I found it Light weighted, loads really fast and eventually feel the user that it's all local.

You can virtually do anything that you might be thinking on your personal desktop. Can change wallpapers, themes and has a nice control panel.

If you dont want to compute virtually, you can use it as a storage device... and I hope it might open blocked sites in proxied environment. what you say? I haven't tried this but It's an intitution, Please have a try.

It's one of its kind.... A unique idea that is in alpha version right now.

What's next after Orkut

Hi folks,

Once when search queries on Google reached 10,000 per second in 2001, Oxford had to include google as a verb in their prestigious dictionary. It's now the time to include Orkut, because the whole world is orkutting but I think there is a limit to that also. Don't you think, you're bored of it and decreasing your online time on Orkut.

The recent trends according to mobile communities are attracting Indians like webaaroo's (our group is already present here). But what about Facebook which recently attracted Microsoft and pressurized Bill Gates to invest in it. Bill invested on 1.2% stake in Facebook this year. Now what's new in Facebook which is not in Orkut.

First, Facebook is already popular social network in US and not in India. Secondly, it is web 2.0 web application and it really uses 100% power of Web 2.0. It therefore allow you to add numerous applications created by different vendors you may or may not trust on. Third, FB is a buzz word for year 2007.

Orkuts Sandbox and Google's Monopoly

Orkut is also trying to add the concept of third party web applications in it's sandbox version. Currently, It is in baby stage and not everyone is allowed to use it. The new & very much required OpenSocial from Google which isn't GoogleSocial is the API created for developers which allows you to create apps for this social world. Though, Google always try to hide himself from the Monopoly Mirror but This mirror is getting transparent And you can judge yourself that the whole world is One that's Google One world. From search engine to email and now Mobiles too ( don't you heard of Google's new initiative ANDROID. Android is a new operating system for mobiles and its vision is to low down the Smart phone price by 400 % expected to hit markets in March 2008.). Google is becoming a life partner which supports us at every moment of life. It is the life-line of our life. Its brand name covers other useful services underneath.

Google is an Illusion!!

Think again!!

Web is getting easy and bulky.

we're currently facing web 2.0 and 3G which is already a newer technology for us but you should know Web 3.0 and 3.5G which is next? Officially released version of web is 2.1 currently and 3.0 is in labs of and :)

Easy the web would be, tougher it's management would be.

Day by day the number of web applications are appending in this already huge list. Our average time spend on each site is becoming is lesser and we're wasting our quality time in roaming from one network to another instead of finding right services.

There is a need for a solution for this.

Merry Christmas!!

Gmail Now Includes Pop-Up Keyboard Shortcut Guide [Keyboard Shortcuts]

If you've got keyboard shortcuts enabled in Gmail (turn 'em on in the Settings), you can now hit the question mark (?) to see an in-Gmail quick reference to what keys do what. The new addition to Gmail's interface looks wildly similar to the Greasemonkey Gmail Macros reference pop-up, transparency and all. What's great about this is that you can look up a shortcut easily; what sucks is that it overrides the Macros help shortcut which comes in Better Gmail 2. (The rest of the Macros work, just not the help pop-up.) There's a Gmail development arms race underway, Greasemonkeyers vs Googlers! Who wins? We all do, eventually. Hit the (?) key in Gmail to check out the shortcuts guide. (And give our favorite Gmail keyboard shortcut a try.) thanks to lifehacker!

Broadcast SMS to a group [almost free]

Want to gupshup with friends? Use your mobile, create a group on and invite your friends to it. Now you can send sms to all the users through this website.
you don't need to go online to invite your friends. Just follow this simple steps :
  1. Create your group by sending an SMS to 567673434. Example:CREATE mygroup123
  2. Invite friends to your group:INVITE 98200XXXXX 99203XXXXX
  3. Send group messages to 567673434. Example:Hi, welcome to IT::SGSITS.

itsgsits is a group already created. You just need subsribe to it. Now talking on how much to pay for it. They say, its free but really not. For every sms to 567673434, a normal message rate applied according to your operator. So cost of broadcasting of one message to a group will surely less than One Re.

Integration with gtalk: add to your buddy list and directly broadcast without a mobile... :D. Hey this is really cool for people like me.

Zero Days Over!!

One month of difference as I call it. We guys at the college have undergone a weird and should I call it an 'amazing' one month of campus recruitment with companies pouring into the college from all directions to grab the students with both hands. The whole one month stint known as "Zero day" in our institute was one mind-boggling learning experience to say the least. People who have been hired and those who haven't  been ,have all experienced life with a totally different perspective. In this piece of text I am presenting my crazy outlook of how crazy things have been in this one crazy month.
One Month of Difference
The clandestine sixth semester exams had already made a mockery of us. We, future engineers, had faced a cruel reality. You can give it your all in the exams but it may or may not matter. The universal answer "it depends!" will always answer all your questions to life. The same thing happened yet again! The examination papers forced us to review our syllabus every time we went home after the exams, puzzled and infuriated. But , the time ahead was even more demanding .All of us had to prepare for the battle that lay ahead.
The sole purpose most of us were doing engineering was what was ahead of us, this holy ritual is called "CAMPUS RECRUITMENT". One month lay ahead of us to recollect all our ammunitions [if we had any] or temperorily arrange for some[that's my case ;)] and to go in and give it the best shot. I am reminded of Eminem who says
"You better lose yourself in the music, the moment
You own it, you better never let it go
You only get one shot, do not miss your chance to blow
This opportunity comes once in a lifetime yo,"
And the music had begun. The first fifteen days, We worked really hard at it. We watched English movies to improve our English and then Hindi movies to relax. The geeks left the geeky things and started to mug up programs and the muggers ,well they continued what they were best at, mugging! As far as I am concerned, I was playing the role of a domestic animal in my cousin's impending ring ceremony. My friends ,well they were making me and others like me scared coz every time I talked to them they kept telling me that another technical subject had been revised.
As they say "time flies when you are having rum!".
On 15th of May I analyzed my position and found myself really under the gun. This whole under the gun scenario was not new to me. In fact it struck me with a feeling of dejavu and I experienced a rare flashback. When I was preparing for my entrance exam for college the whole thing was pretty similar and in fact at that time also I had suffered some indigestion. :) .This not so nice thought of indigestion made me bounce back to the present and I did call the shots finally on no one but my-lazy-self.
The next fortnight went long and hard. Unlike the last fortnight there were no 'supposedly motivating' lectures from the TPO , nor were any of us watching any movies[This is an assumption ;)] The man who achieved a lot of fame during these days was Mr. Yashwant Kanetkar. Out of nowhere he came and the very next moment everyone was enquiring others how much of his text had been gulped. Even orkut had changed a bit .now people used to ask "kitna hua?" instead of  "kya chal raha hai?".not that any of these make sense anyways.
Being an ITian I was supposed to complete at least   "THE data structures" apart from 'C'. And as always I failed to do DS ,I tried hard though, even in dreams I found myself falling from the tree  onto a stack of thorny books. 'pushing' my brains into data structures I always found myself forcefully 'popped' out! Finally I made a tough call,I decided to do other subjects instead.
The day had come ,the month of difference had started and to get the weirdness going ,it started on 31st of may!
Wipro people came in for the ppt and the HR said good morning, the crowd cried aloud as a reply as if everybody wanted to wish him from the bottom of their hearts. The HR was seeming to me like some bouncer of some bar [acc. To what I have seen in movies] He was like a genie who was going to make our wish come true. A hundred and six people got through and were able to rub the lamp successfully. Luckily I was among them as well. The call was made past midnight and all of us went haywire.
The sixth semester results came the same day. As I said earlier "IT DEPENDS".In engineering , time and again you have to remind yourself that u r not the one to call the shots. The results came like a high tide and washed all the hopes that  some of us had carved out in sands  by working hard for a month. And the craziest part is that we'll never know who has done the damage to out goddam careers. I felt really sorry for all those friends of mine who got an atkt in the most important semester of our engineering and thanked god that it didn't happen to me.
Then came Infosys and even the so called 'BAD GUYS' were fighting for a place in this company driven by values. They took 71 guys. Companies kept pouring in and people kept on getting selected. And people kept on getting rejected as well, falling and then rising again the next morning, recollecting all their energies and giving it in once again. They reminded me of Neo from The Matrix who keeps on rising even the though the Agents keep hitting him. But these agents from the software companies were not as adamant ,the results brought smiles to many faces and tears to a few, but at the end of the day they brought a new strength to everyone of us. I, at least was wondering what divine spell I was going through. I appeared for three companies and was selected in all three of them. And in my house my mom was wondering how all the three companies have committed the same mistake. I revived some respect in the eyes of my relatives and friends to whom I was good to nothing until I got selected.
The whole process also affected the economy ,And all of a sudden the shops selling sweets near the college ran into some profit. People at Gurukripa though incurred some loss because now it seemed mediocre to go there. the economic consequences were so grave that everyday I had the wallet full of money in the morning and the next day I had to borrow some more money.
The biggest joke hidden in all this fuss was that every single fella was craving for a purely technical job! God help me! How can farzi engineers like us drool over technicalities!
Anyways it has now got over and as per lines from Enrique's song
"It's hard to just forget the past to pass
It was good, it was bad, but it was real
And that's all you get in the end of the matter
Anyways if I had one occasion to pick from this one month ,that I'll always remember then it will be the moment my friends ,who were not selected in wipro ,hugged me on me getting selected .That moment was one when I realized what friendship is all about and how lucky I am to have that with me!
If u like the whole thing ,do scrap me!

You are advised to take a judicious decision about your participating in such opportunities, as per you eligibility, and with the fullest preparation, so as to maximize your career.


With best wishes,

Training for Campus Recruitment Suspended

From a batch of 800 students, there were only 30 people at the campus training yesterday and only 10-20 people today. These sessions were being conducted by some of the best trainers of Madhya Pradesh. Based on this, it is clear that the trainings, provided in consultation with the students of your batch, are no longer considered useful by the student community at large. With due regard to this, all further programs on campus to prepare your batch for campus recruitments stand terminated. The campus recruitments are expected to begin on May 30 or May 31, 2007. Best wishes for your preparations. -Ajay Garg

The training (via T&P cell) for you campus recruitment is scheduled to begin on 06 May, 2007, at SGSITS

Dear SGSITS Student:

The training (via T&P cell) for you campus recruitment is scheduled to begin on 06 May, 2007, at SGSITS. This date has been set in consultation with many students, who have indicated that they are going home now and will return on 05 May.

If you plan to return to Indore/SGSITS by 05 May, please send a reply at this email address:

Many of the recruiters, who have traditionally come to SGSITS during July to March, are also scheduled to come to SGSITS in June 2007. Hence, the number of recruiters coming to SGSITS in June 2006 is expected to bigger than ever before. This also means that the number of recruiters could be very small after June 2007.

You will get a lot of opportunities to "enjoy" later on, but the recruitment opportunities of this June at SGSITS will perhaps never cross your path again.

Underutilizing the month of May 2007 could the biggest mistakes of your career. Hence, you must make every effort NOW to work extremely hard and prepare extremely well so that derive the best benefit in June 2007.

Aaj nahin to kab?

With best wishes for your successful career,

My own (Akshat Saxena’s) opinion:

Friends , merely appearing for a company is no good if you appear for the sake of appearing. You must prove your potential which will help you to succeed in your coming years and for that some effort on your part is desired. So, start is important and I think it’s a high time to start your preparations. So friends, please make an early start to get a decent reward and most important be true to yourself.

The 80/20 Rule about Telecom Industry:

About 20% of the jobs are in core telecom technology whereas 80% of the jobs are in services for the telecom technology users. (Amdocs focuses on this 80% slice.)

The Amdocs facility at Magarpatta City (Pune) is excellent. Per person, they have 14 sq ft of cubicle space, which is 40% more than the legal requirement is of 10 sq.ft. per person. That is like flying Business Class (vs. Economy Class). (These data are not official figure, but are based on some candid conversations)
