1. DTS imports and exports data from a SQL Server database.
2. Any data source for which there is a valid OLE DB provider.
3. Either by attaching a VBScript module or T-SQL conversions to the DTS
4. DTS Export/Import wizards.
5. BCP is the Bulk Copy command-line utility program; it uses the DB
Library interface to import and export large amounts of data into or out
of SQL Server.
6. BCP has only limited support for transferring data between heteroge-neous
data sources, virtually no support for data transformation, and no
visual interface for administration.
7. The system databases, especially the Master database, must be backed up
periodically, and before and after any major change to server properties,
so that you will be able to recover from a disaster. User databases should
be backed up periodically to minimize potential data loss.
8. Tape backup devices, files, and logical backup devices.
9. A backup device is a structured storage file. You can organize it in such a
way that it becomes storage for logical devices.
10. With the Database Backup Wizard or with Transact-SQL statements.

11. It is a sequential record of all transactions since the last differential or
database backup. You can use it to recover a database up to the point of
12. Unfinished transactions.
13. A differential backup backs up all data that have changed since the last
complete backup. It is much faster than a complete backup but can only
be used in conjunction with a full backup, and is not allowed on the
Master database.
14. No, transaction log can be backed up only all at once. Transaction log
keeps track of the changes made to the database and is used to deter-mine
what part is supposed to be backed up during a differential backup
of the database.
15. First restore the last full backup; then apply all transaction-log backups,
starting from the oldest.
16. You can only perform a full backup of the Master database, not a differ-ential
or transaction-log backup; when restoring the Master database you
should use only the Recovery Complete option.
17. Distribution of identical data across several data sources.
18. Publisher —A source server for the distributed data. It maintains all the
information about the data specified for publishing.
Distributor —An intermediary between the Publisher and the Subscriber,
which can also be both Publisher and Subscriber. Its role varies depending
on the type of replication you select.
Subscriber —The final destination of the distributed data.
19. PUSH subscriptions and PULL subscriptions.
20. Replication agents are utilities that assist in the replication process.

29. What is locking escalation? When does it occur?
30. What is a deadlock? How do you avoid deadlocks?

1. A stored procedure is a database object compiled and stored under a
unique name and is stored in SQL Server; it can have input and output
parameters as well as a return value. A T-SQL batch is stored as a file and
must be executed through one of the SQL Server interfaces; it does not
have input or output parameters and it is always interpreted.
2. It is stored in the Stored Procedures collection of a particular database on
SQL Server. Stored procedures global in their scope reside in the Master
3. The scope of the stored procedure is usually within the database in which
it is created; stored procedures prefixed with sp_ and stored in the
Master database are global for the SQL Server instance.
4. It always has a global scope.
5. Calling a stored procedure from within another stored procedure makes it
a nested stored procedure.
6. Stored procedures usually execute faster than T-SQL batches and consume
fewer resources; they are maintained by SQL Server; they enable you
to create reusable libraries; also they give you benefits of structured
However, they shift control to SQL Server from the client application and
are usually more difficult to modify than batches.
7. Unlike a stored procedure, a trigger is tied to a specific table and is exe-cuted
only in response to certain actions performed on this table; you
cannot call a trigger directly; and a trigger is compiled.
8. Any events that modify data: A trigger can be set to respond to an
10. An INSTEAD OF trigger is executed instead of the T-SQL statement that
triggered the action.

11. A programming object (structure) established on the result-set base. It
enables you to manipulate records in the set row by row.
12. Static, dynamic, forward-only, and keyset-driven.
13. Concurrency refers to the visibility of the data set, which may be accessi-ble
by several users at the same time; you set the cursor’s concurrency in
the cursor declaration or client application.
14. An index speeds up search operations by creating a system of pointers to
the actual data. It is maintained separately from the table it indexes.
15. A clustered index physically re-organizes data in the table; a non-clustered
index just maintains pointers to the actual locations of the records.
16. You can define only one clustered index and up to 249 non-clustered
17. No. For a small amount of data, a table scan is more efficient than an
18. Columns used in JOIN queries, aggregate functions, GROUP BY, or ORDER
BY clauses.
19. Entity, domain, referential and user-defined.
20. Domain integrity (range of values) and referential integrity (preserves
relationship among tables).

21. You can define the CHECK constraint during the creation of the table, or
later with the ALTER TABLE statement.
22. You need to bind it to a column or user-defined type.
23. NULL indicates an absence of data; unless your server is set to compare
NULLs, one NULL is never equal to another. Zero is an actual value repre-sented
by a number.
24. A SQL Server transaction is a collection of T-SQL statements that either
executes as a whole or fails and leaves data unchanged.
25. Atomicity, consistency, isolation and durability.
26. Any transaction that you explicitly start (BEGIN TRANSACTION), end (END
TRANSACTION), or commit (COMMIT TRANSACTION) is an explicit transac-tion.
Implicit transactions are those that SQL Server automatically starts
when it encounters one of the following T-SQL statements:
27. Optimistic and pessimistic.
28. Read uncommitted, read committed, repeatable read, and serializable. 29. Lock escalation converts fine-grained locks into coarser-grained locks (for
example, row-level locking to table-level locking) when SQL Server figures
out that another lock will use less system resources.
30. A deadlock refers to a situation wherein a process (transaction) has
obtained a lock on a resource and tries to get a lock on a second resource
while another process tries to simultaneously obtain a lock on that same
resource and keep a lock on some third resource; neither of the processes
can get the lock on the resource, nor can they commit or abort.
To avoid deadlocks applications should access database objects in a spe-cific
order, user interaction during transactions should be eliminated,
transactions should be kept as short as possible, and you should use the
lowest isolation level possible.

20. What are the four basic queries in SQL?

21. What are the main control-of-flow T-SQL constructs?
22. What are the different types of joins and what do they do?

1. A relational database is a collection of database objects: tables maintain-ing
relationships based on the primary/foreign key principle, various
means of manipulating these tables, and the rules that enforce the rela-tionships
and their integrity. Unlike spreadsheet tables or flat files,
RDBMS tables are related in a parent/child-like relationship.
2. Referential integrity is a relational database concept referring to a state
of data meaning that there are no “orphaned” records; each record in the
child table must be linked to an existing record in the parent table.
3. Data integrity is enforced on four levels through indices, constraints,
rules, and triggers.
4. A key is a column or combination of columns within the table; each table
can have one primary key and several foreign keys. An index is a separate
database structure created to facilitate faster data access.
5. System databases (Master, MSDB, Model, Temp) and sample databases
(Pubs, Northwind).

6. The Master database contains information about the entire SQL Server
instance: settings, startup information, a description of every database
created on the system, and system stored procedures.
7. The Model database serves as a template for every custom database cre-ated
on the system.
8. You resolve a many-to-many relationship with an intermediate table,
which usually consists of primary-key columns of the tables it relates.
9. Data normalization is a process of breaking large tables into smaller
ones to prevent redundancy and data duplication.
10. The first normal form eliminates repeating groups.

11. In order to create a database you must define the data component and
the transaction log component.
12. Execute the statement CREATE DATABASE with all the
appropriate optional parameters.
13. DROP DATABASE . You can specify more than one data-base
in a single statement.
14. You cannot delete any system databases.
15. A database created within SQL Server 2000 is physically maintained as
two or more system files.

16. Transact SQL (Structured Query Language).
17. You can pass Transact SQL statements to SQL Server to be executed
through a number of interfaces: Query Analyzer, ISQL command line,
OSQL, or any client application programmed to connect to the SQL
18. A variable is a data holder; declaring a variable reserves space where
eventually value would put when it assigned to the variable. You declare
a variable in Transact-SQL with the DECLARE keyword, followed by the
variable name and type. (For example, DECLARE @MyVariable VAR-CHAR(
19. Any text data (character string) up to a length specified in that variable
declaration. It cannot be a number, or date or binary.

from Microsoft.

2. You can install SQL Server 2000 on Windows NT 4.0, Windows 2000 Server,
Windows 98 and Windows CE.

3. Enterprise, Standard, Professional, Developer Edition and Windows CE
The differences between these versions lie in the maximum size of the
supported database, the number of CPUs, and support for enterprise-level
features such as replication, scheduling, and so forth.

4. Collation order refers to the way the data in a database are sorted and
compared. Collation order for the server is set during installation; you
can change it later, though it requires reinstalling the SQL Server.
Collation order for a custom database can be set during creation of
the database - it could be different from the default collation order of the

5. Starting from SQL Server version 7.0 you can run several instances of SQL
Server on the same machine. The first installed instance is designated the
default and given the name of the machine on which it is installed; every
named instance must have a unique name.

6. Windows authentication mode and mixed mode.

7. The SQL Server Enterprise Server Manager.

8. Services are a specific type of Windows programs that run as background
process and usually do not require(or allow) direct user interaction. SQL
Server depends on the following services to run: SQL Server Service,
SQL Server Agent Service and MSDTC Service; you manage services
through the SQL Server Service Manager or from Control Panel’s Services

9. Through the Register SQL Server Wizard in the Enterprise Manager

10. Depending on the installation version, you will have anywhere from five
to seven top-level objects with each registered server.

11. Yes. Doing so usually requires re-running install and selecting different
options; sometimes it might be necessary to reinstall SQL Server altogether.

12. By re-running installation and selecting the components you wish to add.

13. Rerun the installation program and select the uninstall option, or use the
Add/Remove Programs utility in the Control Panel.

14. They are the most comprehensive source of information on SQL Server,
and they are installed with every version of SQL Server.

15. A program that guides you step by step through the process of complet-ing
a specific task.

16. A relational database management system (RDBMS) is a means of storing
and managing data in a system of related entities/tables; SQL Server is
one of many implementations of the RDBMS concept.

17. It assists in speedily transferring large amount of data into or out of a

18. Both are command-line utilities for performing ad-hoc SQL queries. ISQL
is a command-line utility based on the DB Library interface; it is provided
for compatibility with previous versions of SQL Server and does not sup-port
all SQL Server 2000 features. OSQL is ODBC-based and supports all
the features of SQL Server 2000; it can also run UNICODE stored scripts.

19. SQL Server Agent assists with automating some of your database-management
chores. A SQL Server Agent job is a sequence of database
tasks scheduled for execution, either periodically or as the result of some
predetermined condition. SQL Server alerts enable you to take action in
response to some event that occurs on the system by notifying an opera-tor
- either via e-mail or pager.

20. The Web Assistant Wizard is a tool for generating (HyperText Markup
Language (HTML) documents based on the data extracted from SQL Server

CDBurnerXP free Burning Application for you

What is CD Burning Software?

CD Burning or CD Writing software is essential for anyone wanting to backup
their computer data to CD or DVD. The software usually allow you to save
data on CD or DVD, as well as creating audio CD's from MP3, WAV, WMA, and
other types of files.

Windows XP comes with built-in software to burn to CDs or DVDs, but the
features are limited. So in many cases, computer owners have other software
they use to burn CDs. Most of the time, this software is either preloaded on
a computer by the manufacturer or comes with the new CD-RW or DVD-RW drive
you've purchased.

What happens when you have reformatted your computer and don't have the
original disks to reinstall the software? Are you stuck with just using the
Windows XP built-in software? The answer is no. There are several good
packages out there to choose from. Most of these work on Windows 98, ME,
2000, and XP.

What is CDBurnerXP?

CDBurnerXP is a free application to burn CDs and DVDs, including Blu-Ray and HD-DVDs. It also includes the feature to burn and create ISOs, as well as a multilanguage interface. Everyone, even companies, can use it for free. It does not include adware or similar malicious components.

What is PABX?

Originally an organization's manual switchboard (operated
by a person plugging cables into sockets) was known as a PMBX (Private
Manual Branch eXchange). These were gradually replaced by automated
electromechanical and then electronic switching systems, called PABXs
(Private Automatic Branch eXchange). As PMBXes are almost unheard of, the
terms PABX and PBX have become synonymous.

Using a PABX saves connecting all of a business's telephone sets separately
to the public telephone network (PSTN or ISDN). Such a set-up would require
every set to have its own line (usually with a monthly recurring line
charge), and "internal" calls would have to be routed out of the building to
a central switch, only to come back in again.

In addition to telephone sets, fax machines, modems and many other
communication devices can be connected to a PABX as well (although the PABX
may degrade line quality for modems). For this reason, all such devices are
generally referred to as extensions.

The PABX equipment is typically installed at a business's premises, and
connects calls between the telephones installed there. In addition, a
limited number of outside lines (called trunk lines) are usually available
for making and receiving calls external to the site (i.e. to the public
telephone network). Companies with multiple sites can connect their PABXs
together with trunk lines. PABX-like services can also be provided by
equipment located off site at a central provider, delivering services over
the public telephone network. This is known as a hosted PABX. For example,
most local phone companies offer a Centrex service in which each extension
has a trunk line connected to the telephone company's Central Office. Other
companies offer similar services.

PABXs are distinguished from smaller "key systems" by the fact that
external lines are not normally indicated or selectable at an individual
extension. From a user's point of view calls on a key system are made by
selecting a specific outgoing line and dialing the external number; calls on
a PABX are made by dialing 9 (or 0 in some systems) followed by the external
number; an outgoing trunk line is automatically selected upon which to
complete the call.

Some Motivating informations

There was a one hour interview on CNBC with Warren Buffet, the second richest man who has donated $31 billion to charity. Here are some very interesting aspects of his life:

1)He bought his first share at age 11 and he now regrets that he started too late!

2)He bought a small farm at age 14 with savings from delivering newspapers.

3)He still lives in the same small 3 bedroom house in mid-town Omaha, that he bought after he got married 50 years ago. He says that he has everything he needs in that house. His house does not have a wall or a

4) He drives his own car everywhere and does not have a driver or security people around him.

5)He never travels by private jet, although he owns the world's largest private jet company.

6)His company, Berkshire Hathaway, owns 63 companies. He writes only one letter each year to the CEOs of these companies, giving them goals for the year. He never holds meetings or calls them on a regular basis.

7) He has given his CEO's only two rules. Rule number 1: do not lose any of your share holder's money. Rule number 2: Do not forget rule number 1.

8)He does not socialize with the high society crowd. His past time after he gets home is to make himself some pop corn and watch television.

9) Bill Gates, the world's richest man met him for the first time only 5 years ago. Bill Gates did not think he had anything in common with Warren Buffet. So he had scheduled his meeting only for half hour. But when Gates met him, the meeting lasted for ten hours and Bill Gates became a devotee of Warren Buffet.

10)Warren Buffet does not carry a cell phone, nor has a computer on his desk.

11)His advice to young people: Stay away from credit cards and invest in yourself.

ABCs of DVD Drive Abbreviations

ABCs of DVD Drive Abbreviations

The number of different formats available in DVD drives can be
confusing to anyone in the market for one. The list is much longer, but to
address a few of the common formats, we have DVD-ROM, DVD-R, DVD-RW, DVD+R,
DVD+RW, DVD-RAM ,DVD+R DL and DVD±RW. Wow! This list of common formats is
long enough, no wonder it's confusing!

What's with all the Formats?!

The reason for various recordable DVD formats is that no one group
owns the technology and different groups have chosen to support one
technology over another. There is no industrial standard for manufacturers
to reference, so for the time being consumers will have a few choices.
The first thing to address is DVD itself, which stands for Digital Versatile
Disc. Some may argue that the V stands for Video, but with the capability to
store video, audio, and data files, Versatile is definitely the keyword.

Start with the Basics

A DVD-ROM drive is the only one we will address that does not
record. ROM stands for Read Only Memory, and refers to the typical drive
that can merely read DVDs, as well as CDs (all DVD drives can read CDs). The
Lite-On LTD-163-DO-R has attributes representative of your typical DVD-ROM
drive, and features a maximum DVD read speed of 16x and a maximum CD read
speed of 48x. Before getting into the different recordable formats, let's
address the basics of what the R and RW stand for, regardless of whether
there is a + or – in the middle. R stands for Recordable, which indicates
that the disk may be recorded to only once. RW stands for ReWritable, which
indicates that the disc may be recorded to more than once, and are generally
rated for 1000 rewrites under good conditions. The DVD-R/-RW format was
developed by Pioneer, and was the first format compatible with stand alone
DVD players. The group that promotes the technology calls itself the DVD
Forum, which is "an international association of hardware manufacturers,
software firms, content providers, and other users" with notable members
such as Hitachi, Samsung, and Toshiba. The DVD-R/-RW format is based on
CD-RW technology and uses a similar approach to burning discs.

The DVD+R/+RW format is a newer format, also based on CD-RW
technology, and compatible with a large percentage of stand alone DVD
players. The +R/+RW technology is not supported by the DVD Forum, and its
main backing comes from a group called the DVD+RW Alliance. The Alliance "is
a voluntary group of industry-leading personal computing manufacturers,
optical storage and electronics manufacturers" with members such as Dell,
Hewlett Packard, Sony, and Phillips Electronics.

The DVD-RAM format is based on PD-RW (Phase-Differential) drives, and
actually uses a cartridge to hold the media (just like its PD-RW
predecessor). Some DVD-RAM cartridges are double sided, making them ideal
for companies to use as system backup, hence DVD-RAM is usually found only
in commercial applications, and most end-users won't ever need to use or see
this type of drive. The DVD-RAM standard is also supported by the DVD Forum
just like the DVD-R/RW format. However, because of its use of a cartridge
(limiting it's compatibility), and the scarcity and price of the media used,
DVD-RAM is a distant third when compared to the DVD+R/+RW and DVD-R/–RW

The +R/+RW and –R/-RW formats are similar, and the main difference
DVD+R technology has is the ability to record to multiple layers (with its
new DVD+R DL format), where DVD-R can only record to one layer (not all +R
drives are capable of dual layer burning, but no -R drives are). The Plextor
PX-504U is an example of an external DVD+R/+RW drive capable of recording
single layer discs in the +R/+RW format, but also able to read discs
recorded by a DVD-R drive.

What is DVD±RW?

DVD±RW is not actually a separate format, but the designation given
to drives capable of both –R/–RW and +R/+RW operation. This type of drive is
typically called a "Dual Drive" (not to be confused with a "Double Layer"
drive) since it can write to both the +R/+RW and –R/–RW formats. The Samsung
TS-H552 is a DVD±RW drive capable of reading and writing every format
discussed so far, and then some. It takes advantage of DVD+R DL (Double
Layer) technology available with the +R format, allowing the appropriate
media to store virtually double the 4.37 GB capacity of a typical single
layer disc.

The other main thing to consider with DVD burners is selecting the
correct media. Media for DVD-R, DVD-RW, DVD+R and DVD+RW media may all look
the same, but they are slightly different in order to match the specific
recording formats. The price of media for either format is generally the
same, with RW media costing a good deal more than R media of either format.
Double Layer media is even more expensive, and is the only way for an owner
of DVD+R DL drive to take advantage of the tremendous capacity increase. As
the amount of Double Layer drives increase in the market, the price of the
DVD+R DL media is expected to fall with increased production of the media.
DVD Burners (as these drive are often referred to) can be picky about the
media supported, so be sure to choose your media wisely.

DVD in a Nutshell

DVD-ROM : Reads DVD discs

DVD+R : Writes to DVD+R media (will also typically write to CD-R and CD-RW

DVD+RW : Writes to DVD+RW media (will also typically write to DVD+R, CD-R
and CD-RW media)

DVD+R DL : Writes to DVD+R DL (Double Layer) media (will also typically
write to DVD+R, DVD+RW, CD-R and CD-RW media; many Double Layer drives are
ALSO dual drives – that is, able to write to BOTH +R/RW and –R/RW media)

DVD-RAM : Writes to DVD-RAM cartridges (not in wide use on consumer market –
mainly a business format; can also read PD-RW discs. Will not usually be
able to write to any other format including CD-R or CD-RW)

DVD-R : Writes to DVD-R media (will also typically write to CD-R and CD-RW
media) DVD-RW : Writes to DVD-RW media (will also typically write to DVD-R,
CD-R and CD-RW media)

DVD±RW : Writes to DVD-RW and DVD+RW media (will also typically write to
DVD-R, DVD+R, CD-R and CD-RW media; typically called "Dual Drives" since it
can burn to two different DVD formats)

Final Words

This article took a look at the more common formats of DVD drives in
order to shed some light on all the choices available. The differences
between them all may be subtle, but the compatibility issues can be quite
frustrating. The simple answer to anyone considering a drive is to forget
about + and – by themselves, and shoot for universal compatibility with a
good DVD±RW with DVD+R DL support.

Ultrafobos anti mosquito software

Ultrafobos is another anti mosquito program. Its objective is to emulate diverse ranks of frequencies that are annoying or act on the nervous system of mosquitoes, flies and other insects or animals, thus frightening them and forcing to move away from certain places.

As authors of this anti mosquito program state, its name is made of two words – Ultra representing the abbreviation of extreme frequency, and fobos that comes from the Greek and means fear.

Ultrafobos emits a sound of a certain frequency through the sound card or the small internal loudspeaker of the PC.

Operation is very simple; you only have to define the frequency and duration of the sound. It is also possible to select the frequencies predefined for diverse animals and even teenagers!

The volume Vol: and duration Dur: values are obligatory, but you can also define time Tmp: (how long should the sound last) and repetitions Rpt: (how many times should it be repeated).

The reach of the sound of Ultrafobos anti mosquito software will depend on the power of your loudspeakers, generally any type of card and loudspeaker will serve to act in a room up to a distance of 15 meters or even more, depending on furniture and materials of ceiling, walls and floor.

Height of Research!

There are many ways to eat a masala dosa .What ever the way one eats; there
is a very good reason for doing that. It shows some traits of the person
that is you...

Case 1: People who open the masala dosa and eat it: These are the people who
are very open about their life. Everyone one the persons friends would know
all about him/her. I have generally seen guys do this rather than girls.
Some people think that it is a gross way of eating but in truth, these
people are just portraying who they are and how their life is.

Case 2: People who start from both end and approach the masala later: These
are the people who like to wait for the exiting things to come to their
life. Sadly when the times comes, they are not too interested or just do not
know how to enjoy it to the fullest. These are the folks who just want life
as either dry or exiting. They just do not know how to phase their life and
enjoy it no matter what. There are two types of people within this group

Case 2.1: People who do not finish all the masala: These folks just do not
care as much for the fun times as they are already brought down by the harsh
reality of life. The dry periods in their life has left them with so much
scars that they do not want to be really happy when the time is right. They
just take only as much as they needed and end their life. A very sorry state

Case 2.2: People who finish all the masala with the little dosa they have:
These are the folks who just are the extremes. They just go all out in life.
No matter it is dark or bright. They may not enjoy life to the fullest but
they sure make sure that they get every single good and bad thing out of
life. Sometimes these folks are really hard to get along with. They are
either your best friends or your worst enemies. They do not have a middle
path at all.

Case 3: People who start from the middle and proceed to both ends: These are
the people who like to get right to what they think is their best part of
life. Usually these guys finish of the good portions in a hurry and get
stuck with nothing but worst parts of their life. The thing to note among
these people is that the tendency to burn out very early in their life. Like
the above case, there are two kinds of people in this group too.

Case 3.1: People who do not finish the dosa: These folks are really the
saddest of people. They are the ones who tend to end their life as soon as
it hits the bad patch. For them, they only need and want the best things in
life and nothing more. Typically, they are not prepared or tuned to life as
a whole. They just want to enjoy from first till last. Sadly, no one in the
world can live without even an ounce of sadness in life. Not even the
richest of the richest. But to self destruct at the mere sign of distress is
very bad. That is what these guys tend to do. Some learn to live life but
most of them do not.

Case 3.1: People who do finish the dosa: These folks are the typical human
beings. We all enjoy the greatest of times in life and push the sad parts
thinking about the great times in life. Typically the plate is clean and
nothing is left for fate or in life. Happiness and sadness are part of life
and these guys know that and are kind of prepared for it. Life is not always
happy but there are moments of happiness here and there.

Case 4: People who eat the dosa making sure that the masala lasts for the
whole dosa: These people are very rare. These are the people who like to
attain balance in their life. It is hard to displease these people and it is
hard to make them really happy. They like their balance and are very
protective of it. Sadly these are the people who tend to be lonely as anyone
else may upset the balance of their system. Perfectionist to the core and
are very careful. These guys do not make the best company but are needed in
any group to make the group from going hay wire.

Case 5: People who do not share and eat the dosa as if it is precious: These
folks are very protective about their life. They do not want anyone to come
and interfere in their life. They like to hide their true nature and
intensions for their benefit. Beware of such people as they are in every
group for their own need and nothing else.

Case 6: People who offer their first bite to others: These guys are overly
friendly. They do anything to be part of a group and make everyone feel like
the group is important than the individuals. They are the glue that holds
any group together. They are very friendly and bring the best of all the
others in the group. They go out of their way to help other friends. Most
groups should have a person like this and they are the ones who plan the
group outings and other group activities. Once this person is out of the
group, typically the group slowly falls apart.

Case 7: People who take one or two bites and then offer the dosa to others:
These guys care about friends and friendship but they take their time to get
into the group. They take their time in making friends and they typically
are very committed once into the friendship. These guys like to always be in
the side lines and typically do not jump into anything in life. They always
take their time to analyze the situation and then make a decision. These
guys take the better safe than sorry approach.

Case 8: People who wait for others to make the offer first: Typical people I
must say. They are unsure about everything. Even if they wanted to offer,
they will wait till the other person offers the food first. If the other
person is silent, so are these people. They are the followers. They do
terrific idea, they will pitch it to someone else and get their advice
before proceeding. Sadly, most of the elderly world like these types of

Case 9: People who offer dosa only when they cannot finish it on their own:
You all may be familiar with these kinds of people. People who are very
generous only when all their needs are fulfilled. These folks are selfish
but at the same time not misers or greedy. They just want to satisfy
themselves before they give it to the world. They typically do not stuff
themselves nor do they tend to starve. They are very good people who would
give you the best of advices in life. They would make sure that you are not
sad following their advice.

Case 10: People who offer the whole dosa and eat from others plates: These
folks are other extreme. They know what they want, they get what they want
but they cannot enjoy what they want. Instead they tend to settle for other
things in life which satisfies the needs but does not satisfy the person
completely. These guys are termed as born losers cause even when they have
the thing they wanted, they can't stop others from stealing it from them.

So next time you sit with a person eating a masala dosa, look closely and
see if he falls into one of the above categories. You may be surprised
as how much it reveals about the person

Exercises help keep eyes healthy

Exercises help keep eyes healthy
Dr Mahipal Sachdev

Eyes form a vital organ of the body, constantly in use while we do our
activities. They are in use all the time, Then why is the need for

Points to remember

*Never ignore problems like headache, pain in are around the eyes, eyestrain
and sleepiness.
*Learn how to do eye exercises.
*Consult your doctor before starting an exercise programme.

We need our eyes to work all the time for us and so is the need to take
proper care of them. We are rather trained to keep our bodies fit. We do all
sorts of exercises to keep the body fit, but forget about our eyes.

Eyes are rather overused nowadays as the whole world is accessible on the
television and computers. This has changed our lifestyle. In this age of
information technology, for the maximum hours of the day a person sits in
front of the computer or television with the eyes focused on the screen.

We ignore common symtoms which the body gives us as a signal to take care of
. Doctors commonly see patients turning to them only when the severity of
the symptoms is more or is affecting their work schedules or targets. The
common problems which patients present with are headache, pain in or around
the eyes, eyestrain, sleepiness and feeling like stop working/
reading.Therecan be blurred vision, watering or running of letters
after reading for some

Here are some eye exercises explained which will relieve the eyestrain and
keep our eyes healthy. One should understand that they DO NOT IMPROVE EYE


Palming: One should sit comfortably and rub ones hands together to make them
warm. Keep the eyes closed and cover them lightly with your cupped palms.
Don't apply any pressure on your eyeballs. Place your palms so that the eyes
are covered properly. Make sure that there are no gaps between the fingers
so that no light-rays enter the eyes. Do deep breathing slowly. Relax like
that for three-five minutes and then uncover the eyes. Repeat the palming
for three minutes or more.

Convergence exercise: Hold a pencil in front of you at arm's length. Move
your arm slowly to your nose, and follow the pencil with your eyes until you
can't keep it in focus. Repeat 10 times. This will strengthen the eye
muscles responsible for convergence.

Change of focus: The focus on a distant object for a few seconds and slowly
refocus your eyes on a nearby object at arms' length. Focus for several
seconds and go back to the distant object. Do this five times. Taking short
breaks while working on the computer to stare out to the distant object also
relieves some eyestrain.

Always consult your eye doctor before doing any of these exercises. Don't do
the exercises with your contact lenses on. Do not apply pressure on your
It is more important to do the exercises regularly than to do them for a
long time.

Do this for at least a few days and you should notice that when you finish
working your eyes aren't as tired as usual and start your day with shining
and relaxed eyes!

How Old is Papa?


One evening a grandson was talking to his grandfather about current events.
The grandson asked his grandfather what he thought about the shootings at
schools, the computer age, and just things in general.

The Grandfather replied, Well, let me think a minute,
I was born before:



polio shots

frozen foods


contact lenses


the pill

There were no:

credit cards
laser beams or

; ball-point pens

Man had not invented:



clothes dryers and the clothes were hung out to dry in the fresh
air and

man hadnt yet walked on the moon

Your Grandmother and I got married first, . . . and then lived together.

Every family had a father and a mother.

Until I was 25, I called every man older than me,Sir.
And after I turned 25, I still called policemen and every man with a title,

We were before gay-rights, computer- dating, dual careers, daycare centers,
and group therapy.

Our lives were governed by the Ten Commandments, good judgment, and common

We were taught to know the difference between right and wrong and to stand
up and take responsibility for our actions.

Serving your country was a privilege; living in this country was a bigger

We thought fast food was what people ate during Lent.

Having a meaningful relationship meant getting along with your cousins.

Time-sharing meant time the family spent together in the evenings and
weekends-not purchasing condominiums.

We never heard of FM radios, tape decks, CDs, electric typewriters, yogurt,
or guys wearing earrings.

We listened to the Big Bands, Jack Benny, and the Presidents speeches on
our radios.

And I dont ever remember any kid blowing his brains out listening to Tommy

If you saw anything with Made in Japan on it, it was junk.

The term making out referred to how you did on your school exam.

Pizza Hut, McDonalds, and instant coffee were unheard of.

We had 5 &10-cent stores where you could actually buy things for 5 and 10

Ice-cream cones, phone calls, rides on a streetcar, and a Pepsi were all a

And if you didnt want to splurge, you could spend your nickel on enough
stamps to mail 1 letter and 2 postcards.

In my day:

grass was mowed,

coke was a cold drink,

pot was something your mother cooked in and

rock music was your grandmother s lullaby.

Aids were helpers in the Principals office,

chip meant a piece of wood,

hardware was found in a hardware store and

software wasnt even a word.

And we were the last generation to actually believe that a lady needed a
husband to have a baby. No wonder people call us old and confused and say
there is a generation gap... and how old do you think I am?

I am 59 !!

KGB Archiver

Is it possible to compress files from hundreds of megabytes to few megabytes?

Usually not. It can be done, but only if the data being compressed isn't very differential. This means you can compress text with good a ratio (there are only 26 lower-case characters, 26 upper-case characters and 10 numbers plus a few standard symbols like '!@#$...',and usually no more than 64 different symbols in standard text, but every symbol is saved using 8 or 16 bits, which gives 256 or 65536 combinations per symbol), but you cannot compress graphics or music very well.

KGB Archiver is the compression tool with an unbelievably high compression rate. Unfortunately, in spite of its powerful compression rate, it has high hardware requirements (I recommend processor with 1,5GHz clock and 256MB of RAM as an essential minimum). One of the advantages of KGB Archiver is also AES-256 encryption which is used to encrypt the archives. This is one of the strongest encryptions known for man.

What is OLTP?

Online Transaction Processing (OLTP) Definition

Databases must often allow the real-time processing of SQL transactions to support e-commerce and other time-critical applications. This type of processing is known as online transaction processing (OLTP).

online transaction processing Used in a system where clients store and interrogate data which is important to an organization's business. Typical applications include stock control, airline seat reservation, and share dealing. Such applications require secure data and guaranteed response times for TRANSACTIONS. They were once only found on MAINFRAME COMPUTER systems but they are increasingly being found on CLIENT SERVER COMPUTING systems. Online transaction processing systems which are DISTRIBUTED SYSTEMS provide major technical challenges in terms of response time, security and reliability.

CHANDRAYAAN-1: India's first mission to the Moon

"THE MOON" with the history of the early solar system etched on it beckons mankind from time immemorial to admire its marvels and discover its secrets. Understanding the moon provides a pathway to unravel the early evolution of the solar system and that of the planet earth.

Through the ages, the Moon, our closest celestial body has aroused curiosity in our mind much more than any other objects in the sky. This led to scientific study of the Moon, driven by human desire and quest for knowledge. This is also reflected in the ancient verse. Exploration of the moon got a boost with the advent of the space age and the decades of sixties and seventies saw a myriad of successful unmanned and manned missions to moon.Following this, a hiatus of about one and a half-decade followed. During this period we refined our knowledge about the origin and evolution of the moon and its place as a link to understand the early history of the Solar System and of the earth.
