My weekend trek to Nagalapuram with the Chennai Trekkers Club – 9 and 10 May’09

May 16, 2009 Leave a comment

Hey What you’ve been up to this weekend .
Guess what -:) went on a trek this weekend with the Chennai Trekkers Club , Reason for doing ;got absolutely bored of the same city life same boring office 9-00-9 kind of life style and I guess all who joined and were part of this trek were also coming from the same line of thought . All wanting to escape from the mundane life and ppl who are actually thrill seekers stuck up bad in their daily bread winning acts.
You could find various ppl from different backgrounds and well established in their own fields but when it came to walking a few yards under the hot sun under the umbrella of mother nature, Which on that particular day seemed to be spitting fire . … these guys were just not good !!!!!

But each one of us how ever unfit we proved to be at the end ,completed the trek or can call it a major wreck
cause by the end of it there was only wreckage of bodies all over . Trust me it pained in places where i can’t even imagine .
I never imagined it would be so much fun when i enrolled . we started off on bikes and cars and these guys went bizzirk man .. Have you ever seen ppl driving cars while standing in the drivers seat guess it happens only in Bollywood .. if you were  not there with us on this trip u for sure missed such visuals. Peter was amazing  I personally have never seen such a thing
Well as we moved on Ram-zan or should I say Tar-zan met with a (kutti which is a major undersatement)  accident,,,lucky i guess to escape only with some minor bruises and after some quick first aid given to him  by our very own on the trek doc Wasim, we carried on without any further incidents to our base camp.
Trust me most first timers thought  that we’d jus be climbing some mountain and walking all along and have a nice little picnic and come back but boy !!! were we wrong .
very soon were climb uphill with the sun beating down as hard as it could and felt particularly hard with the 2-3 kgs backpacks we were carrying all along the way we had some super water spots to replenish and without these pit stops i think i would not have survived the whole thing .

Well the most amazing part of it was it reminded me of the ragging days where  in  my seniors used to say that calamity is the biggest binder  and how true it was according to then they just created the situations for us to get better . Well I can tell u for sure the way ppl helped each other i.e. ppl who probably have met each other for the first time in life was amazing and that is where the heart of such trip actually lies I guess.
All along My laziness and my supreme fitness which i have already told u about !! was getting in my way while we were going through this roller coaster ride over the boulders with no flat land in sight.
If this was not enough after some time we were asked to go up the hill which was at a 30deg incline and then we crossed some 200 mts all along the mountain with only a valley to stare down at with no support  this is point when I was reminded of god the most trust me I along with most others were shit scared , But some how we all managed to complete it and came down the hill sliding on our butts . proof in point most of the guys had their pants torn from behind ……
well after all this we finally reached our base camp fought to get place to sleep on the hard boulders with only the star to cover our head and laid like logs after having some super food cooked by the whole team .
The way back was the same .. we trekked our way back the same way as we came .. but surprisingly it was far it seemed far more easier , may be the fear factor was there no more and had more fun all along .Maybe  we all were more confident by now .

Boy !!!! was the toughest physical ordeal i have been through  yet and the experienced trekkers kept on calling it the simplest of the treks they’ve ever been to . (Guess that’s their standard mantra to motivate ppl and prevent ppl from chickening out)
At the start of the trek Peter told, its just a 10 min walk. This 10 min actually have ended only at dawn. Damn physique, now am craze in getting this tough physique.
But tell you what one of the members form the trek kept on telling us that they need to push us hard so that we come back??? as the pain is the addiction for which ppl  return back and boy  he was so right !!!.Am game for the next trek and with more josh !!
Till the Next trek I guess I can say with a little bit of courage
Suggestion: Every one should try it the one thing you will have is love for your life

NAGALLAPURAM – 25 (Silver Jubilee)

I know the previous one was a medium, only when you have faced
the difficult. This is tremendous, and the climb was 880 m high.

I got cramps in both of my legs at the mid of the climb. As
a physician was beside me, he helped me relieve this pain. Then I have been
pushed back, walking slowly and enjoying the pain.

Peter has advised us to carry 3 liters of water, in spite I
carried only 2 liters, as my backpack was too heavy. On the way, I drank all
the reserve. While at the hill top, the sun ate all my energy and was very
thirsty. You could not have faced this dying thirsty ever in your life. I even
have prepared myself to drink the dirty stagnant water lagging in between the
rocks. This water is very dangerous, this water contains lot of parasites and
this can quickly turn you down with diarrhea and drowsy. In the mean time I met
the great Saravana Kumar helped me by giving tiny droplets of water which were
left behind in the water bottle. This just wetted my throat, Still alive J. Then quickly we went
down for a camp.

The second day was bit ok, as went to magic pool and thereby
we went on in the usual way.

In the magic pool, as I was waiting for a swimmer to pass on the pool. I was waiting on the top of the rocks and literally making some noise and this probably could have disturbed this aghori’s meditation. He knows I doesn’t know swimming, in spite he pushed me into water. Everyone there was shocked of this incident. and the good swimmers were on the other side of the pool. It takes atleast 2 – 3 min to come this side. Imagine this incident, How a non swimmer will struggle in the deep water. Atlast Ritest and Saravana kumar came for rescue. Till the time I have managed to be on the top of the water. I donno how… ?

How BSE index is calculated?

April 4, 2009 Leave a comment


This is a few mathematical formula, that everyone should know.

Suppose the Index consists of only 2 stocks: Stock A and Stock B. (BSE has allocated x no. of stocks for index calculation).

Suppose company A has 1,000 shares in total, of which 200 are held by the promoters, so that only 800 shares are available for trading to the general public. These 800 shares are the so-called ‘free-floating’ shares.

Similarly, company B has 2,000 shares in total, of which 1,000 are held by the promoters and the rest 1,000 are free-floating.

Now suppose the current market price of stock A is Rs 120. Thus, the ‘total’ market capitalisation of company A is Rs 120,000 (1,000 x 120), but its free-float market capitalisation is Rs 96,000 (800 x 120).

Similarly, suppose the current market price of stock B is Rs 200. The total market capitalisation of company B will thus be Rs 400,000 (2,000 x 200), but its free-float market cap is only Rs 200,000 (1,000 x 200).

So as of today the market capitalisation of the index (i.e. stocks A and B) is Rs 520,000 (Rs 120,000 + Rs 400,000); while the free-float market capitalisation of the index is Rs 296,000. (Rs 96,000 + Rs 200,000).

The year 1978-79 is considered the base year of the index with a value set to 100. What this means is that suppose at that time the market capitalisation of the stocks that comprised the index then was, say, 60,000 (remember at that time there may have been some other stocks in the index, not A and B, but that does not matter), then we assume that an index market cap of 60,000 is equal to an index-value of 100.

Thus the value of the index today is = 296,000 x 100/60,000 = 493.33

This is how the Sensex is calculated.

The factor 100/60000 is called index divisor.

Installing Windows 7 through USB drive

February 22, 2009 Leave a comment


Open the command prompt and do the following procedures

  • Run select disk 1 where the "1" is actually the corresponding number of your USB drive.
  • Run clean.
  • Once the thumb drive is clean, you can run create partition primary.
  • Now make the partition active by entering active
  • Then you need to set up the file system as Fat32 by running format fs=fat32 quick (quick, of course, specifies that you want to perform a quick format to speed up the process).
  • Entering the assign command gives the USB drive a drive letter, making it easy to access from Windows Explorer
  • Then you can copy everything from the Windows 7 installation DVD onto the USB key (a simple drag and drop will do).
  • Now you can insert the thumb drive into the system you want to install Windows 7 onto and boot the system. The installation will now proceed as usual—but faster.
  • Remember to set your boot bias to USB drive.

    Atom 1.0 Vs RSS Feed

    December 21, 2008 Leave a comment


    The name Atom applies to a pair of related standards. The Atom Syndication Format is an XML language used for web feeds, while the Atom Publishing Protocol (AtomPub or APP) is a simple HTTP-based protocol for creating and updating web resources.

    Web feeds allow software programs to check for updates published on a web site. To provide a web feed, a site owner may use specialized software (such as a content management system) that publishes a list (or "feed") of recent articles or content in a standardized, machine-readable format. The feed can then be downloaded by web sites that syndicate content from the feed, or by feed reader programs that allow Internet users to subscribe to feeds and view their content.

    A feed contains entries, which may be headlines, full-text articles, excerpts, summaries, and/or links to content on a web site, along with various metadata.

    The Atom format was developed as an alternative to RSS. Ben Trott was one of the advocates of the new format that became Atom. He believed that RSS had problems that ought to be fixed. Since RSS was frozen, and in any case had to remain backward compatible, there could be advantages in doing a fresh design.

    Proponents of the new format formed the IETF Atom Publishing Format and Protocol Workgroup. The Atom syndication format was published as an IETF "proposed standard" in RFC 4287, and the Atom Publishing Protocol was published as RFC 5023.

    Hyperlink not working in outlook

    December 4, 2008 Leave a comment


    "This operation has been cancelled due to restrictions in effect on this computer."

    A very common question in the Microsoft public newsgroups goes something like this:

    When clicking on a hyperlink in an e-mail, I get this Message : "This operation has been cancelled due to restrictions in effect on this computer. Please contact your system administrator." I get this message every time that I attempt to use the hyperlink. I am the administrator on this stand alone computer. How do I deactivate this feature so that I activate hyperlinks ?

    This is not an Outlook error. The most common cause is a corrupt registry key in Internet Explorer 6. The registry key found at
    is either damaged or corrupt.

    To fix it, try  resetting Web settings in Internet Explorer. If this does not resolve the issue, you’ll need to import the registry key from another computer.

    Reset Web Settings

    To Reset Web settings

    1. Open  Internet Explorer.
    2. On the Tools menu, click Internet Options.
    3. Click the Programs tab, and then click the Reset Web Settings button.
    4. Under Internet programs, verify that the correct e-mail program is selected.
    5. Click to select the Internet Explorer should check to see whether it is the default browser check box.
    6. Click Apply, and then click OK.

    If you receive a message when Internet Explorer starts telling you that IE is not currently your default browser, click Yes to make it your default.

    Import the Registry Key

    When resetting the web settings doesn’t help, you’ll need to recreate the corrupt key. The easiest way to do this is by exporting the key from another computer.

    To save exporting it from another computer, right click here to download a registry key exported from my computer. Choose Save target as and change the file extension from txt to reg and double click on it to run it.

    If you prefer to use a key from a computer you have access to, follow the instructions in You receive an error message when you click a hyperlink in Outlook.

    Set Program Access in Control Panel

    Windows XP and Vista allow you to control program defaults through Control Panel, Add and Remove Programs, Set Program Access and Defaults. If the above methods fail, use this method to set the default browser.

    Other Causes

    There are several other causes of this error. In most cases, they do not affect hyperlinks in Outlook. If you found this page searching for the error message, check out the following pages. Note that if you receive this error on a computer at work, you should contact your administrator, they may want access to applications restricted for security reasons.

    You receive the message when:

    · Using Outlook 2002 SP3

    · Trying to run a program

    · Saving a document (Windows 2000)

    · Accessing file open dialog

    · Starting Windows Explorer
