How to crack password in Windows XP

A basic post to crack a Windows XP system. So for people who already know this .. wow.. gr8.. you can try something better than this and tell me.. :P For newbies and non-windows users(if interested) , a small hack in windows( which i knew..)
  • Go to your command prompt in windows.. i.e Start->Run->type 'cmd'

you will have your command prompt.. then . .

  • type net user/users in the command prompt.

This lists all the users in the present system

  • type net user "user name" *

Give the name of the user defined in net users list .. of course, not quotes..lolz..

  • It would move on to next line and ask for a password.

The password typed cannot be seen .

  • It'll ask for password retype .

once typed... you have successfully changed the password of a XP system.. :)

happy cracking.. :)

Digitally yours

Gone are those days , when a music composer composes his notes and gives it to the team of musicians and technicians . Even 50 violinists could be used in the past, all playing the same notes. Even if one of them makes a mistake in his pitch, there would be a retake from the beginning.Maestro Ilayaraja , Mozart AR Rahman, Melisai mannar MSV, kishore kumar were given high regards for their compositions and they considered music near godliness, for its divinity. That's why there were very little music composers and more percussionists.

Nowadays,anyone with a computer, with the required software can compose. what you need to know is the know-how to operate the software. So even the music which needs to be played by 50 percussionists can be now done with a single mouse click. That's why we can find the music losing its originality, we find similar tunes and beats. Thus has left the musical entertainers jobless.
ofcourse the music needs to be peppier and stylish to suit the modern trends. But not the same music and beats, like harris jeyaraj whose movies have similar background scores. Moreover people like yuvan, himesh reshammiya add some effects to their songs, some cries here n there with his voice.The same old beats,even singers. These not necessarily makes songs a hit.I presume , there can be a situation can compose songs even without the singer actually singing.He can store his voice in the computer and render it to his compositions. There are people like Deva n Harris(of course) , who just lift songs from the western bands .

Its time for the music composers to retrospect themselves and present to the audience with compositions, with originality , with live orchestration. Enough of this digital strangulation ...

Anything for you, ma'am

welll.... so soon..within few days(jus three..lolz.. ) after my kite runner, here comes Anything for you, ma'am by tushar raheja . I,myself could finish this book of in a couple of days.

About the book, Its a nice little romantic entertainer. The story keeps you glued to the book. That's one reason that you finish this book so fast. We can find a tushar raheja in ever single teenage lover on earth.Why it needs to be a IITian's story?may be because tushar is an IITian. Also by the fact that people could buy this book as it is on the lines of 5 point someone.. marketing strategy. The book seems to be an desi version of euro trip. The script has undergone few changes to maintain its originality, but the screenplay is gr8. Tushar's dialogue's fabulous especially his oneliners . This guy can become someone like Prasoon Joshi( of RDB fame) adfilm maker,lyricist.

why should you read this book??
-> The simplicity in the story line. Also a teenage lovestory,every teenager will love this book.
->tushar's narration about her majesty,his senorita.. is amazing. for sure he's enjoyed in narrating these incidents.
-> for those who liked 5 point someone, a similar book on its lines.
->for all those lovers, do care to read the struggles of a fellow lover. comeon man just 100 rupess man.
-> The dialogues were really fabuluous,especially with shreya,about Mr.fate.

why should you not read this book.
-> For all who believe that tushar's trying to ape chetan bhagat,, but noway stands near him.
->Though the screenplay is taut, the flow sucks big time. Tushar has tried time travel in his narration. This makes the simple book a little complicated for the readers. This was unnecessary.
->The cover page sucks big time, something like a cartoon. even if it was plain, it would have been better.
->Too many coincidence may make the reader think that this cannot happen in real life.Its just a story man, accept them as it is.

Rating : 3/5

The Kite Runner

Atlast i've finished this book , been reading this one for a long time.
Back to business, The Kite Runner by Khaled Hosseini is a great book. Initially people(i meant.. myself ) would feel a bit dry. The flow of the book is fabulous. The buildup to the second part is amazing. Khaled hosseini is an Afghan, but in America on a political asylum.

The characterization of each character is really gr8. No man is perfect, thats the base.The protagonist carries his guilt for all the wrong doings. The characters of Amir , Hassan,baba,Sohrab stand out. The right dosage of the sufferings in Afghan by the taliban , these could visualized. If you think of the story as real one, you can do only one thing... Just feel sorry for the sufferings of the Afghans. There are a lot of moral values attached to the doings of the character especially hassan.

overall, a commendable effort from the author. There's a movie adaptation of the book is on the cards(i'm not sure if it has released).For all those movie buffs who don't find time to read a book, have a look at the movie whenever it releases. :)

we followed them @ midnight

It was almost 12:30 am(past midnight.. for all those who don't know abt time..). we were back from manas'residence around 5:30 pm. we planned to sleep till dinner and have a NiteOut and finish the project work, as we had very little time to complete our work. Suren ,a workaholic(#define suren workaholic.. every one knows dis..)he got up around 8:30 pm and left for the lab.As yazhini didn't turn up for the lab,myself n hari had dinner and left for lab around 10:00pm . As usual i continued my work installation procedure , my home directory in linux got screwed and i had to reinstall. We, people got bored and couldn't proceed in our work. So we thought we could leave to hostel and do something there..

We started our way back...i asked,"wen shall we book the return tkts??". "we'll book it by 2morrow da" , replied suren.Then suren started about the proj,"i'll try to reason out why our sphere didn't fall.. why we had black OGRE screen" We were discussing these as we were walking. We could feel the chilllness even when we were at the stairs.We moved out of our block, we found two girls walking towards the block. As both of us were walking under the shadow of the tree, we couldn't even look at them properly.

"where are they goin at this time of the day",i asked.
"how the hell do i know??? shall i go and ask them",replied suren.
"yes, why not.. lets go....", i said instantly.
Myself n suren walked back to the block and followed the girls, leaving behind hari.
We followed them as we reached the 1st floor and they saw us. We were prepared for all these.
"where u goin at dis point of time??",i asked. Its was really strange to question a girl.
"we are going to satyam lab",said a tall,decent looking girl.
"usually girls don't do niteouts, unlike us",i replied. Both of them gave a nasty look.i readily accepted it and walked back.

They went ahead to their lab and we returned back to find hari. he was there behind a tree under the shadow. we couldn't recognise him under the dark.
Suren and me decided to damage the girls and become porrikki in college. I know its difficult to attain that status, but surely work hard..get some more bulbs and become a porikki( lol.. )

Discriminated deccan

Most of the national English news channels' viewers are from southern states. At least that's what you can find out from the audience response to the polls and debates. But news channels which cover news for these states position themselves at Delhi or Mumbai, to cover their news. If I could recollect, the only time news channels covered remote places of TamilNadu in full extent, was when the devastating Tsunami struck the southern states.

Is the distance the main reason? Media covers news article on a case hearing in a supreme court or in a Delhi high court, rather than a thiruvananthapuram high court. This has turned the southies to turn to local language new channels for news on local issues. Just because your headquarters is in Delhi, you need not cover the local news of Delhi to the fullest extent. You have water logging problems, power shutdowns, political turmoil not only in Mumbai or Delhi alone, but in southern states too. The news channels cover the news of big B visiting a temple or SRK smoking or even promoting his new movie, but don’t give a damn about the news emanating from other cities.

What we are talking is not a rural-urban divide, but a disparity between north-south. Just because this is less acute than rural-urban, we cannot ignore these issues. Chennai, Hyderabad, Bangalore are becoming more cosmopolitan than they used to be. Despite the news channels allotting special slots and special segments for the southern state news, the coverage should well get beyond the metropolitan cities. There needs a delocalization of news channels if they want to call themselves a national news channel.
