Surprise… Surprise… Surprise… I am still alive!!!

I am feeling like it has been years since I have posted something on my site. No no, wasn’t busy with studies, work or any other productive work. Full credit goes to my laziness and my procrastination! In my life, I never thought, I could stay idle for months to this extent but as you friends know many things happen in our life for the very first time . :) Chatting, mail checking , orkutting, sleeping and hanging around kept me busy till now. Oh ya, in between, for a change, I visited library for few hours to make sure that I am preparing for GRE/TOEFL.

Spidigo -> Let it go away speedily

I think most of the people might be unaware of the name spidigo. It is so called ISP providing wired and wireless internet connections in a big cities like Mumbai, Ahmedabad, etc.

I used their wired broadband connection for about 2 months and I have to say this was the most pathetic time for me to stay connected. It can go down at any moment. I think there are very few employees handling all the work of spidigo so you can guess it is useless to dream about getting SUPPORT in case of failure.

Orkut "About Me"

Well, well, well

There was a time when I was damn happy earning $$$ from my sites. Even I made good sum of money for more then a year. It was really great experience to develop sites, publish it, promote it and earn money.

Open .docx file without installing Office 2007

Today, I received a mail regarding requirements specifications of website. The mail had an attachment of file containing all the details. To my misfortune, the file was in .DOCX format and I had no Office 2007 in my laptop. I tried to open it using Office 2003 but failed. Not only I tried to mail it to my gmail so that I can view it online but Google didn't fulfill my wish as it isn't supporting .DOCX files yet. It was quite important for me to read the file and reply back soon so I had no other option than to search for the solution on net.

Well, I didn't need to spend much time, I found out soon that we can open the .docx, .xlsx or .pptx file without installing Office 2007 and believe me its very easy. To do so, you just need to download Microsoft Office Compatibility Pack for Word, Excel, and PowerPoint 2007 File Formats. Simply execute the exe file, install it and you will be able to open the .docx,.xlsx or .pptx file with your regular Office 2003. Once you open the file just save it as .doc, .xls or .ppt extension and it will be compatible to Office 2003.

Hhhmmm, I am done with converting the file and replying back the mail so thought to share with the poor guys who might end up with the same situation as I did.
