Less Posts These Days

In Personal on November 27, 2006 at 2:02 pm

I got hurt in my right eye when I was trying to pull a stapler from a box with a plier. And I have to undergo a surgery to fix it. All these days I wasn’t been able to post to my blog because of this unexpected situation.

Please keep me in your prayers and as soon as I recover from this surgery I’ll get back to the normal posting habit on my blog.

Sorry my friends. Please be safe.

Week 2 of Amazon Customers Vote Program

In Breaking News, Deals, Misc on November 23, 2006 at 3:13 pm

We saw how quick the 1,000 XBox 360’s went off on Week 1 of Amazon’s Customers Vote program. I think it wasn’t even 4 minutes before it said that it’s sold out. I tried my best but couldn’t get one.

Now is Week 2. Not so great of things when compared to Week 1. Here is what they have for week 2.

To me, the Amazon Prime Membership looks cool. I might vote for that. What would you vote for?

On how to vote to get these items at these low prices, check out my previous post.

Go…vote for it…and let’s get the best of every week’s items at these low prices.

Extendable Task Bar if you use multiple monitors

In Gadgets, Tips N Tricks, Tools on November 21, 2006 at 9:09 pm

If you are upto the standards and you use multiple (extended) monitors at home or work then you should have to have these tools to make life easier. Media Chance has a Task Bar that extends to the second or even the third monitor so that you can have your own Task Bar for each monitors.

Here is what it does,

  • It adds second taskbar to the extended desktop on Monitor 2 (either right or left)
  • It can add third taskbar to the second Extended monitor if you have 3 monitors setup.
  • It shows only applications from that Monitor
  • It hides the applications on Monitor 2 from normal Windows Taskbar

 The cool thing about this tool is that it adds a “Move To” button at the top of each window which will allow you to move the window from one monitor to the other with a click of a button.

It’s a pretty handy tool if you use multiple monitors.
