Windows 7 Profile Synchronization

Compulsory:

Categories: 

Lately, for my day job (to be more efficient for the time I spent), I am required to use Windows, back again. :-)

It is great to be back. By back, I mean using Windows for some of the workflows. All these years, I've been using Linux based tools (Debian, Kontact | IceDove, Konq | Chromium | IceWeasel etc) to get my job done. It is great to try back Windows for some of the workflows.

Microsoft, Nokia and Qt

Compulsory: 

Keywords: 

Categories: 

Nokia has announced that it is selling off its Qt business. This needed to happen given the change in the company's strategy. Microsoft is a software vendor providing Mobile OS, with Nokia being one of its consumers. For Nokia, to have a tier 1 alliance with Microsoft, it would have been important for the company to show positive gesture. With this move, Microsoft and Nokia will strengthen their partnership.

Fishkeeping is a very common hobby and an easy one to start. What's challenging is is to be able to continue the hobby. Very often most people give up on fish keeping.

Reasons being:

  • Water - Gets contaminated too soon.
  • Fish - All of a sudden they start dying and you'd hate to see that happen
  • Cleanliness - Sometimes, it just becomes a burden cleaning the tank

All the points above are inter-related. If you can crack 1-2 of them, you might have a better experience with your fishkeeping hobby.

I've been an aquarist for just about 2 years. I've been a victim of all the 3 above bulleted problems. But now, I have kinda worked it out and haven't had any trouble.

Tips: You'll find plenty of online information on do's and don'ts on this topic. Here's my thought derived from them and with my 2 years of observation.
