Opera along with the NGO Smile Foundation has launched an initiative to help 1000 underprivileged school children receive basic school education for a year. Opera has pledged to donate Rs. 5 for every Opera Mini downloaded over the next three months (upto Rs. 5000000).
If you didn't already know Opera Mini is a mobile browser that helps you reduce your mobile data expenses by compressing data before it is sent to your phone. So you can surf more and spend less.
So help yourself and others by downloading Opera Mini from here now.

If you are on Aircel and you are getting the message Unauthorized Request.Subscriber/Request have been barred when trying to tether (use your phone as a modem to connect to internt on your laptop or PC), it is because Aircel is blocking your internet and not a virus infecting your Laptop/PC.
All you have to do to overcome this artificial restriction placed by Aircel is change the access point to aircelgprs.
If you have an Android phone go to Menu > Settings > Wireless and Networks > Mobile networks > Access Point Names
here press Menu and select Create new APN, you will get a page with lot of options to enter, most of them can be left as it appears.
Just change the name to something you can identify (I suggest "OpenInternet") and under APN enter aircelgprs and leave everything else as it appears and press Menu and select Save. This will take you back to the list of access points, just ensure that OpenInternet (or whatever name you gave it) has a green dot next to it and voila you can now use you phone to tether without restrictions.
If you have any other handset please check the manufacturer's guide on how to set up access points on your device and ensure you use APN as aircelgprs.
Happy Surfing ツ

I stumbled upon this contest on Indiblogger, well actually they emailed me because I'm a registered member but haven't been blogging for a while now. So all I have to do is post about the experiences I would like to bring back from Melbourne and they will make it happen.
Melbourne is the capital and most populous city in the state of Victoria , and the second-most populous city in Australia . Melbourne is such a famous place hosting several major sporting events like the Formula One grand prix, Australian Open Tennis Tournament, cricket matches at The Melbourne Cricket Ground (MCG) among several others.
If I do win this contest here's a lift of places I'd definately like to visit
Otway Fly Treetop Adventures - I'd really like to experience the zip line tour through the rainforest, going through the forest and viewing the pre historic displays. Kinda like reliving the scenes from Jurassic Park 3.
Eureka Skydeck 88 - It's a tall building with a glass cube which projects 3 meters out from the building, about 300 meters above the ground. When you step out of the building and into the cube the sight and the experience is something you'll treasure for a lifetime.
Healesville Sanctuary - Australia has a unique wildlife, different from the rest of the world and I wouldn'tt want to miss watching some of the unique species particularly the Koala, Kangaroos, Ostrich, Platypus, Dingo and Emu.
Melbourne Aquarium - Also not to be missed are the fishes. The Melbourne Aquarium houses giant sharks, stingrays among a whole lot of other aquatic life. If you are daring enough you can. dive with the sharks. Don't forget to visit the penguins too.
Given an opportunity to visit Melbourne, I would grab it with both hands. I'm just waiting for someone to call me and say it's your time to visit Melbourne NOW!

The film is set in the future where genetic mutation allows people to stop aging and live forever, but there's a catch. Once a person is 25 years old they stop aging however they only get one more year to live. So they have to earn time to live longer. Hence time is the new currency, and the amount of time a person has available is displayed on their left hand. This time can be transferred and if one runs out of time a person dies instantly.
The world is divided into time zones based on the wealth (measured in time) possessed by people. The poor live in ghettos and work in factories and only managing to earn time to survive for a day or so. While the rich live in huge cities with centuries at their disposal with many bodyguards to protect them.
When Time is money, there's gonna be theft. There are gangs that steal money from people, a particular one called MinuteMen. Where there are thieves there's gonna be cops, they're called Timekeepers.
This movie is based in this complex time based world. The hero is a factory worker from the ghetto living with his 50 year old mother although she still looks 25. They're living on daily wages with loans to pay, rent etc. One day the hero saves the life of a wealthy 105 year old person from MinuteMen who isn't happy living forever and gives his century long time to our hero and times himself out (commits suicide). That evening his mother is unable to take the bus to get home as there is a hike in the fare and gets timed out just as she meets her son. The hero is completely helpless with a century of time at his disposal but unable to save his mother. He then sets out to Greenwich to disrupt the system.
I'm not gonna include any spoilers so you can watch the movie yourself and enjoy it. You've gotta watch it, before you run out of Time.

I've finally managed to remove them and comments are now back online. So the real people can start commenting again. I'm sorry to have blocked all comments but it was essential, kinda like the Phoenix that rises from its ashes, I hope to improve comments here.
I've turned off the annoying captcha, yes I hate it too, but as a trade off all comments will be moderated. I hope this will deter spammers when they see that their comments are not being published, and they'll just let this blog be.
I'm looking forward to some genuine comments now, don't disappoint me.

I know I've been away for a long time and only post here sporadically but the fact that there are people reading this blog is the reason I've kept this domain online. A big thank you to all the readers who keep visiting my blog. I would appreciate if you would leave a comment so we can chat. Also you can catch me on twitter @selurus, I'm on twitter almost every waking hour, but don't worry I'm not addicted. It's all under control.
I would be moving this blog to a self hosted wordpress blog as soon as my issue with PayPal is sorted. I have already contacted them and hopefully they will fix the bug in their verification system and grant me full access soon.
I'm considering hosting my blog with HostGator, 'cos I've heard a lot of good stories about them and also some of my blogger friends are hosting there. So this blog would be moving soon.
Well that's it for now. See ya on twitter. Bye :)
