Vista partitioning?

1 Comment

We get a default tool with vista but, irony is that its not user friendly as many MS pdts claim themselves.. ok lets chk whether it works..

I have one primary and one more logical drive. I am able to shrink only the logical, while am not able to do any nonsense with the primary even though i hav loads of GBs left. ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

This pushed me to chk for the diskpart tool which told me the same thing in the command line.. nothing works .. Kind of bugd now.  Thought abt formatting and re-installing the xp prof and get a linux distro goin, but tat too is not possible since I have organised my data perfectly here so re-organising them is simply a pain in … :-X

Already I disable all those flashy stuff so tat i can save some memory, other than tweaking registry which am very weak since it gives some junk results most of the time i tried.

Refrained from formatting, since After getting this laptop, jus was thinking let me see how long am able to run along with vista home basic edition.

I don like this, except for the ease of operation and I can easily tell my parents something, instead of showing them a xfce stuff. No intention to play with partitions since I have really gud data oraganised properly (atleast to me) .. ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

Oram Po ..

Its a movie starring Aarya and Pooja .. nothign great to write.. jus an auto race story.. story writer would hav been inspired by fast and furious stuff.. but  nothing like tat is seen here.

Kind of wasted both Pooja and Aarya .. would hav done a better movie. ๐Ÿ˜ฆ


Nothing to actually tel..


Lack of proper storyline, screen play… etc..

Porting yahoogroups archives to mailman

1 Comment

First step is to collect the complete archive from the yahoo group…

Mail man supports mbox format for importing archives. So we got to get the yahoo msgs into a single .mbox file. Which can be done using the simple perl utility yahoo2mbox 

To hav this working, we need to have perl installed if u are using windows or mac variants.. as I do .. So I installed Active perl and chked by executing perl in command line.. ๐Ÿ™‚ happy things are goin on well till now

print “Arch chking perl”
Arch chking perl

Kool.. Next step is to jus trigger this after downloading yahoo2mbox 

Jus give this and wait..

C:\Users\archu\Desktop\yahoo2mbox-0.23>perl Indianlc

Keep waiting waiting.. ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

Finally we get something like this after 15-20 mins

C:\Users\archu\Desktop\yahoo2mbox-0.23>perl Indianlc

Linux Chix Wiki & Mail lists :)

Leave a comment

Successfully started off the wiki and mail lists.. all credits goes to the fellow mates there Vid and Runa for taking most of the important steps reg the same..

To ppl who are jus thinking wats Linux or wat Linux chix means? Please chk out this links.. Its a group of a software activists helping in propagating a better side of the software, to be specific ๐Ÿ™‚

I was quiet – very passive in mail lists.. since I felt some day an year back that I need to know more and was figuring out I was wasting a lot of time jus chking and answering mails from All-Indian lugs, at the end of 2-3 years I found myself no-where jus a mailer for ppl who were lazy to google .. So thought there are others who wil help newbies and  jus felt interested ppl will always learn watever the initial hickups were ..

So linux enthusiasts please join hands with all gals out there.. who love to explore more than the specified boundaries..

Polladhavan – Same stuff.. Dhanush can try something else


Resembles Dhanush’s earlier movies, Sullan, Thiruda Thirudi.. where a carefree youngster from a middle/lower middle class.. having hitches with dad daily.. come up in his life.. same stuff.. different songs.. different movie name and different herione..

But the climax is kind of same too.. One thing I noticed which differs from others pre’s is here hero doesnt go and fight unnecessarily to prove the point that he is the hero… He tries to solve the issue..

So the storyline is something like.. reckless youth whos n love with local girl for years.. tries to own a bike.. and then finally trying to prove he is worth somethign to his mom and dad.. ends up with a petty fight with local ganster’s kin.. Story moves on how the hero kills the gangster and saves his family and get back to normal life..

Songs : Engeyum Eppodhum and Minnalgal Koothadum Mazhaikaalam are notable numbers.. while other songs seem to be added as commercial elements for the movie..

+++ n the movie:

  • Strong screenplay
  • Dhanush matured acting.. (but he is used to this.. past 2,3 movies same stuff..)
  • 2 songs..

— n the movie:

  • Heroine Divya and the complete love track.. feel its kind of wasted..
  • Dull background..
  • Story not ended properly.. we don know wat happened to the love track its ended abruptly

Rating ==> Watch once [2.5/5  ]
