The Only Difference between Happie New Year 2009 and 2066

Its an intention. Its a personal blog. And again a personal wish. I would like to pronounce my best wishes for all my friends, blog addicts, wanna show-buzzers, lunatic, frantic and everyone out there on this New Year 2009 and the holiday. Christmas is over, pushe pandhram is just off. And Happie New Year will roll out in hours.

Colors of joy- blue. It's blue and blue everywhere. Charm is just on. Another new year is here. Resolutions are made with no exceptions like before. Shorter are the sentences like pathetic feelings towards the ammine sense of how Nepalese life is possible. MBPS speeds, quality control mechanism, law enforcement, hectic dailies and a lot but the netas. This is a Nepali feeling, waits but never stops, for nothing, for virtually no possible future.

Let's come to the topic- the only difference between Happie New Year 2009 and 2066. Apart from being on a personal words- Happy is just for Happy people and the Happy moment. should we be Happie with Happie words. 2066 will surely be atleast on some new propoganda rather than on this 2065. I am pointing toward the future of the World's most poorest country- Nepal. Nothing could be heard of the new year bikram sambat 2065. We are the trend setters, 2009 dominates the world of recession. Will it be safe to save our netas that only the global recession is responsible for 12-hours-a-day loadshedding in the country of the world's richest water resource country.

Presuming the new year wishes will boon me out, could it be safe to right turn on writing something like NAYA BARSHA 2009 KO HARDIK SUBHAKAMANA. Whatever be the crossroads for, a Nepali like me is obviously on the century-back puzzle. There is no solution.

Funnies from oldies - real matrimony ads

Who says seniors don't have a sense of humor? Here are some senior personal ads in a Florida newspaper.

FOXY LADY: Sexy, fashion conscious blue-haired beauty, 80's, slim, 5'4" (used to be 5'6"), searching for sharp-looking, sharp-dressing companion. Matching white shoes and belt a plus.

LONG-TERM COMMITMENT: Recent window who has just buried fourth husband, and am looking for someone to round out  a six-unit plot. Dizziness, fainting, shortness of breath not a problem.

SERENITY NOW: I am into solitude, long walks, sun rises, the ocean, yoga and meditation. If you are the silent type, let's get together, take our hearing aids out and enjoy quiet times.

WINNING SMILE: Active grandmother with original teeth seeking a dedicated flosser to share rare steaks, corn on the cob and caramel candy.

BEATLES OR STONES? I still like to rock, still like to cruise in my Camaro on Saturday nights and still like to play the guitar. If you were a groovy chick, or are now a groovy hen, let's get together and listen to my eight-track tapes.

MEMORIES: I can usually remember Monday through Thursday. If you can remember Friday, Saturday and Sunday, let's put our two heads together.

MINT CONDITION: Male, 1932, high mileage, good condition, some hair, many new parts including hip, knee, cornea, valves. Isn't in running condition, but walks well.

Warner Music Demands YouTube Drop All Its Music

Warner Music is demanding that all of its music videos - including tracks from artists such as AC/DC, Gnarls Barkley, Björk, James Blunt, REM, Green Day and Kylie - are removed from YouTube.

Warner Music Group and Google's YouTube failed to reach agreement about how the label should be compensated for official and unofficial music videos. Warner Music has therefore called for all of its content to removed from the site. "We simply cannot accept terms that fail to appropriately and fairly compensate recording artists, songwriters, labels and publishers for the value they provide," said a Warner Music statement.

"It isn't always possible to maintain these innovative agreements," Google responded on its blog. "Sometimes, if we can't reach acceptable business terms, we must part ways with successful partners."

According to Wired, Universal Music Group says that it's earning tens of millions of dollars from the site and expects to earn more in the future.

YouTube is offering an Audioswap feature, which lets uploaders select new music for any videos that made use of Warner's music.

In September 2006 Google announced an agreement to distribute on YouTube the library of music videos from Warner's "world-renowned roster of artists as well as behind-the-scenes footage, artist interviews, original programming and other special content. In a first-of-its-kind arrangement, YouTube users will be able to incorporate music from WMG's recorded music catalog into the videos they create and upload onto YouTube."

At the time, Edgar Bronfman, Chairman and CEO of Warner Music Group, said: "Technology is changing entertainment, and Warner Music is embracing that innovation. Consumer-empowering destinations like YouTube have created a two-way dialogue that will transform entertainment and media forever. As user-generated content becomes more prevalent, this kind of partnership will allow music fans to celebrate the music of their favorite artists, enable artists to reach consumers in new ways, and ensure that copyright holders and artists are fairly compensated."

Lenovo Mobile's Expected Android Handset Appears Online

Pictures of a Lenovo Mobile Communications handset bearing the logo of China's largest mobile operator have spread online, rumored to be proof of an upcoming Android handset that's based on China's homegrown 3G (third-generation) mobile standard.

Lenovo Mobile's Expected Android Handset Appears Online The pictures, posted by, show a handset with a large screen and a single hardware button that's reminiscent of Apple's 3G iPhone. Specifications provided with the pictures -- which do not show what operating system the phone uses -- claim the handset has a 5-megapixel camera and room for an add-in SD (Secure Digital) memory card. An earlier post on the same site said the Lenovo Mobile handset is called the OPhone, runs the Android operating system, and supports China's TD-SCDMA (Time Division Synchronous Code Division Multiple Access) 3G standard.

While both companies use the same logo, Lenovo Mobile should not be confused with Lenovo Group, the PC maker and former parent of Lenovo Mobile. Lenovo spun off its ailing mobile unit as a separate company earlier this year. The US$100 million buyout of Lenovo Mobile was led by Hony Capital, the private equity arm of Lenovo's Beijing-based parent company, Legend Holdings.

Lenovo Mobile, which is not a member of the Open Handset Alliance that backs Android, could not be reached for comment on the pictures. But the company was one of the first Chinese vendors to produce TD-SCDMA handsets and produces smartphones that run Microsoft's Windows Mobile operating system, suggesting a TD-SCDMA smartphone based on Android is within the company's capabilities.

In addition, China Mobile Communications, the country's largest mobile operator, is widely expected to get a license to offer 3G services based on TD-SCDMA. The operator, which is an OHA member, could also not be reached for comment on the handset pictures. China is expected to issue licenses for 3G services either this month or during January. If the Lenovo Mobile handset depicted in the pictures is genuine, it's likely to appear on the market at about the same time or shortly thereafter.

George Bush Hit in Face 50m Times

Alex Tew, creator of the Million Dollar homepage, has a new web hit on his hands, after creating online game "Sock and Awe" in homage to the Iraqi journalist who threw a pair of shoes at US President George Bush.

The objective of the game is to hit George Bush in the face with a carefully aimed shoe as he ducks and dives around the screen. So far, 47,171,895 shoes have successfully hit Bush in the face.

Iraqi reporter Muntazer al-Zaidi hurled two shoes at the US president during a press conference on December 14.

Sock And Awe Bush shoe game

24-year-old London web designer Tew created the site and swiftly sold it on eBay for £5,215. The buyer was a company called Fubra, which put adverts on the site, and claims it quickly made its money back.

"We built just for fun (and partly as a promo for our start-up, PopJam) but had no idea it would become quite so popular. So, now we are selling it because a) we don't really know what to do with it, b) we can recover some of the hosting costs (plus pizza and beer costs!), and c) the money will be useful for our little four-man start-up," Tew wrote on the eBay auction page.

"It went explosively viral around the world and we didn't really expect it to do that," he said.

"We've spent the last three days trying to keep the servers alive and we're meant to be working on our other main startup PopJam. So we whacked it on eBay," he added.

Tew supposedly made a million dollars with his Million Dollar homepage.

The top 10 Bush-whacking countries are:

   1. United States
   2. France
   3. Australia
   4. United Arab Emirates
   5.  Saudi Arabia
   6. Turkey
   7. Egypt

Golf Tips... Thursday Humor

Three guys are golfing with the club pro. First guy tees off and hits a dribbler about 60 yards. He turns to the pro and says, "What did I do wrong?"
The pro says, "Loft."

The next guy tees off and hits a duck hook into the woods. He asks the pro, "What did I do wrong?"
The pro says "Loft."

The third guy tees off and hits a slice into a pond. He asks the pro, "What did I do wrong?"
The pro says "Loft."

As they're walking to their balls, the first guy finally speaks up. He says to the pro, "The three of us hit completely different tee shots, and when we asked you what we did wrong you answered the same exact answer each time. What is loft?"
The pro says, "Lack of flippin' talent."

A Penthouse in Heaven : Thursday Humors

A Penthouse in Heaven

The Pope dies and goes to heaven. When he gets there, Saint Peter shows him to his new quarters which turn out to be a tiny one bedroom apartment.
The Pope is horrified and wants to know why he doesn't have the penthouse apartment, which is huge.
Saint Peter informs him that the resident of the penthouse is a lawyer.
"A lawyer," says the Pope. "But I'm the Pope, surely I'm more important."
"With respect Sir," says Saint Peter, "We have lots of Pope's up here, but we only have ONE lawyer!"


God the Parent

Whenever your kids are out of control, you can take comfort from the thought that even God's omnipotence did not extend to God's kids.

After creating heaven and earth, God created Adam and Eve. And the first thing He said to them was: "Don't."
"Don't what?" Adam asked.
"Don't eat the Forbidden Fruit." God replied.
"Forbidden fruit? We got Forbidden Fruit? Hey, Eve..we got Forbidden Fruit!"
"No way!"
"Don't eat that fruit!" said God.
"Because I am your Creator and I said so!" said God, wondering why he hadn't stopped after making the elephants.
A few minutes later God saw the kids having an apple break and was angry.
"Didn't I tell you not to eat that fruit?" the 'First Parent' asked.
"Uh huh," Adam replied.
"Then why did you?"
"I dunno," Eve answered.
"She started it!" Adam said.
"Did not!"
"DID so!"

Having had it with the two of them, God's punishment was that Adam and Eve should have children of their own...thus the pattern was set, and it has never changed.

HP Updates Desktop Virtualization Software

Hewlett-Packard hopes to widen the use of its desktop virtualization products with new software that will improve video playback and allow the use of USB peripherals such as webcams, the company announced Monday.

HP is also rebranding its desktop virtualization suite as the HP Virtual Client Essentials, and adding Linux support for its broker software, called Session Allocation Manager, which runs only on Windows today, HP said.

Most of the updates concern HP's Virtual Desktop Infrastructure suite, which allows a company to run multiple images of a desktop OS in virtual containers on a server, instead of having to manage a separate OS on each employee's PC.

Virtualized desktops are catching on at some businesses but companies need to provide workers with an experience similar to what they'd expect from a standard desktop PC, and that hasn't always been the case with multimedia content, said industry analyst Roger Kay, president of Endpoint Technologies Associates.

HP said it has solved that problem by developing an enhanced version of Microsoft's Remote Desktop Protocol, which transfers presentation data between thin clients and Windows applications running on a virtualized server.

The existing RDP works fine for relaying basic on-screen data, such as keyboard strokes and mouse movements, but it's not good at carrying rich content such as a training video or webcast, said Manoj Malhotra, product marketing manager for HP's Client Virtualization group.

"The server gets overloaded when it tries to decode a video stream for a large number of users, and some employees end up having a poor experience," he said.

HP's enhanced RDP shifts the burden of decoding video away from the server and onto the thin clients, he said. That will allow companies to stream video to a large number of employees without a deterioration in performance, he said. The new protocol also lets them plug in a wide range of USB peripherals, which don't work well with the existing RDP, according to HP.

HP said the enhanced RDP is aimed at basic productivity workers. The company also has its own RGS (Remote Graphics Software) protocol, which it positions for applications that use higher end graphics, such as CAD programs, or that multiple users access at once.

While the enhanced RDP will be free, HP charges for its RGS protocol. But on Monday it said it has cut the price of RGS to US$35 per seat, from "between $99 and a few hundred dollars" per seat, Malhotra said. It's also allowing customers to use RGS on non-HP servers, which previously was not permitted, he said.

He predicted that the RGS protocol will become more widely used, but HP still expects the enhanced RDP to be used for about 75 percent of virtual desktop deployments.

Patience and School Lunch... Thursday Humor @ Ekendra's Blog


A young woman really thought she'd been very patient, through a long period of dating with no talk of marriage.

One night her steady boyfriend took her out to a Chinese restaurant. As he looked over the menu, he casually asked her, "So... how do you want your rice? plain or fried?"

Without missing a beat, she looked over her menu at him and replied.... "Thrown."


School Lunch

The children were lined up in the cafeteria of a Catholic elementary school for lunch. At the head of the table was a large pile of apples. The nun made a note, and posted on the apple tray:
"Take only ONE. God is watching."
Moving further along the lunch line, at the other end of the table was a large pile of chocolate chip cookies.
A child had written a note, "Take all you want. God is watching the apples.

Errors in Windows Live Writer while publishing blog posts in Blogger

I have long been experiencing many errors while using Windows Live Writer. Sadly, I could not find any support or help from their official site or even from the community forum, Google search too didn't yield any productivity. This trouble is so much tensed that I could not make any newer blog post over months.

publishing post to weblog via windows live writer
1. Publishing post to weblog

Errors in WLW appear frequently whenever any post contain images or media files. In fact, this problem might be persistent with Google's Blogger (blog*Spot) service because I tried to resolve the conflict with other different weblog accounts not only of Blogger but also of WordPress. But nobody seems to be responding to my queries- it's neither Microsoft nor Google. Here are few snapshots and the errors associated, find them around the article. (Unfortunately, I had to publish this post via web interface NOT thru WLW.)

file upload failed in widows live writer picasaweb

2. File upload failed: The remote name could not be resolved ''

I tried by deleting the Weblog Account associated with the blog and again adding the new account, I tried to change the layout of my blog, I browsed for each and every settings in the blog and the Picasa Webalbums (where the uploads photos reside), I tried by changing the ISP (mode of Internet connection), I even tried in dial up, wireless or broadband, I tried almost everything I could. BUT never could I format my blog-- I never succeeded posting any newer blog posts with associated pics to upload.

file upload failed in widows live writer
3. File upload failed: The underlying connection was closed: the connection was closed unexpectedly.

Finally, I have to use the web interface whenever I use images on my blog posts. If anybody has come across such errors in Windows Live Writer, please comment on this post or give me the link to solve my problem.

error connecting to weblog in windows live writer
4. Error connecting to weblog: An error occurred while attempting to connect to your weblog: The remote name could not be resolved '' You must connect this error before proceeding.

windows live writer has stopped working
5. Windows Live Writer has stopped working.

My final words: Few months back WLW was working quite well for other blogs while I didn't notice such errors- or did I not posted with pics. In all the error cases shown above, my computer was connected to the Internet via 156KBPS and the other time I tried with 256KBPS. Is Microsoft or Google expecting me to have always on corporate T3 lines while uploading few hundred KB pics via WLW? The world is not that easy rather.

Facebook 'Connect' Zaps Site Registration Hassles

  Facebook is getting ready to take another stab at introducing a Beacon-like feature that allows your Facebook friends track your Web-whereabouts with a service called Connect. The service is set to launch within a few weeks, according to Facebook.

The Facebook Connect feature will allow participating Connect site owners to share user names and logins. This allows end user to sign into Facebook, for example, and surf over to another participating Connect site and avoid having to create an additional user name and password for access to that site.
Another aspect of the Connect feature will update your Facebook Newsfeed with news as to what participating Connect websites you've visited. For example, if you "dugg" an article on Digg your Facebook Newsfeed would report this.
This is not the first time Facebook has tried to federate user information across the Web. Last year, Facebook's 'Beacon' advertising program backfired at the company, as the program failed to properly warn users that their activity on partner websites was shared on Facebook.

However, this time, Facebook seems to have learned from its previous experience and 'Connect' users will be able to adjust their privacy settings for which actions will be shared on the social network. Besides that, Facebook promises it will be "carefully authorizing" each partner in the 'Connect' program. The new feature will compete with similar offerings from rival social network MySpace and with Google's 'Friend Connect.'

Facebook 'Connect' works in a remote way like 'OpenID.' Basically, using this feature you will be able to access various websites without having to create a new profile and tediously enter all your personal data. This article is adapted from PCWorld.

(नेपाली जहाज आकाशमा) Danfe - Nepal's first home made plane successfully flies in Pokhara's sky

Danfe, a long awaited project of brilliant minds of the Pulchowk Campus IOE, finally flies in the Pokhreli sky today at about 1630. It's finally off the governmental hassle and flew like a Danfe, but the question remains how will it's future go? Read detail news below from PokharaNews.

जहाज उडानको एक सय बर्षलामोर् इतिहासमा नेपाली बैज्ञानिकले बनाएको पहिलो नेपाली जहज डाँफेको शनिबार पोखरामा सफल परिक्षण उडान गरिएको छ । पोखराका यूवा बैज्ञानिक विकास पराजुलीको नेतृत्वको टोलीले निर्माण गरेको तीन वर्षछि उडान अनुमति पाएका डाँफेको अन्तराष्ट्रिय उडड्यन दिवसमा दिन पोखरा बिमानस्थलमा उडान गरिएको हो ।

रसियन पाईलट अलेक्जेण्डर म्याक्सीमोभले डाँफेलाई १५ फिट माथि करिव एक मिनेट हावामा तैराएका थिए । म्याक्सिमोभ एभिया क्लबका पाइलट हुन् । नेपालमै विमान बनाउने आफ्नो सपना पूरा गरी छाड्न त्यत्तिबेलै डाँफे एयरक्राफ्ट फेब्रिकेसन ग्रुप गठन गरी पराजुलीको नेतृत्वमा सातजना विद्यार्थीले विमान बनाएका हुन् ।
पोखरा विमानस्थल विमानस्थलभन्दा कम व्यस्त भएकोले यहाँ परीक्षणका लागि ल्याईएको हो । १० लाख रुपैयाँको लागतमा निमार्ण् गरीएको डाँफे दुई घण्टासम्म एक सय किलोमिटर प्रतिघण्टा ६ हजार फिटसम्म उड्ने क्षमताको छ ।

चरालाई हावामा तैरिन पखेटाको सहायता चाहिएजस्तै डाँफे विमानलाई हावामा तैरिनलाई आवश्यक १० मिटर फैलिएको पखेटा प्रयोग गरिएको छ भने विमानमा दुईवटा आरामदायी सिट छन् ।  सिटमुनी इन्धन ट्याङ्की छ भने त्रिभुजाकार विमानको पछिल्लो भागमा शक्ति यन्त्र जडान गरिएको छ । पराजुलीको नेतृतवमा रहेको टोलीले तीन वर्षअघि काठमाडौको पुल्चोक इन्जिनियरिङ क्याम्पसमा 'रिर्सच थेसिस' को रुपमा विषय उठान गरेका थिए । उडान हेर्न पोखरा विमानस्थलमा दर्शकहरुको भीड लागेको थियो । टोली प्रमुख पराजुलीका पिता शिवप्रसाद पराजुली हृविल चियरमै छोराले बनाएको जहाज हेर्न विमानस्थल पुगेका थिए । आमा गोमा पराजुली लगायत आफन्तहरुको पनि विमानस्थलमा भीड लागेको थियो । विज्ञान तथा प्रविधि मन्त्री गणेश शाह लगायत कास्कीका सरकारी अधिकृतहरु परिक्षण उडान हेर्न विमानस्थल पुगेका थिए ।
डाँफेको सफल उडान भएपछि मन्त्री शाहले विज्ञान र प्रविधिको विकास गर्न सरकारले एक करोड रकम निकासा गर्न लागेको बाताउदै डाँफे निर्माण गर्न लागेको १० लाख रुपैंया पनि सरकारले बेहोर्ने बताए । उडान पछि डाँफे बनाउने टोलिका सदस्य रमेश रानाभाटले आफ्हरुको महेनतलाई सरकारले ढिलैभएपनि कदर गरेकोमा खुशी व्यक्त गरे । यसले आफुहरुलाई उच्च स्तरको जहाज बनाउन प्रेरणा मिलेको उनले बताए ।

अन्य विमान झैं बर्नौलीको सिद्धान्तमा आधारित भएर यो विमान उड्ने टोली प्रमुख पराजुलीले बताए । धावनमार्गमा ७३.२ कि.मि.प्रतिघण्टाको गतिमा ९५.३२ मिटर गुडेपछि यसले जमिन छोडेको थियो ।
उडानको समय चारसय किलोग्राम तौल धान्ने क्षमता भएको डाँफे ५० लिटर इन्धन लिएर दुई घण्टासम्म लगातार उडान गर्न सक्ने भएपनि आहिले एक मिनेट मात्र उडान परीक्षण गरिएको थियो । एभिया क्लब Danfeपोखराकी निर्देशक नताशा श्रेष्ठका अनुसार यो विमान दक्षिण एसियाकै नयाँ उत्पादन हो । विमान उडान तालिमबारे प्रशिक्षण दिँदै आएको एभिया क्लबले डाँफे विमानकै आधारमा अरु विमानसमेत नेपालमै उत्पादन गर्न सकिने बताएको छ ।

'विदेशमा पनि यसरी नै बनाउने हो', श्रेष्ठले भनिन् -'यसको डिजाइन दक्षिण एसियामै नयाँ छ ।' अरु विमानमा झैं तीन पाङग्रा भएको यो विमान अष्ट्रियन प्रविधिको इन्जिन बाहेक बाँकी सबै कामको लागि नेपाली ज्ञान, सीप, कला, प्रविधि र स्थानीय सामग्रीको संयोजनमा बनाईएको छ ।  यो अनुमति पाउन वैज्ञानिक टोलीले पुरै एकवर्षखर्चेका थिए । एक वर्षअघि उडान अनुमति माग्दा नागरिक उड्डयन प्राधिकरणले अन्तराष्ट्र्यि नागरिक उड्डयन संगठन तथा अन्य सुरक्षाको कारण देखाई उडान अनुमति पत्र दिन नसकिने पत्र जारी गरेका थिए ।

पटक-पटक आग्रह गर्दा पनि प्राधिकरण नमानेपछि नागरिक उड्डयन मन्त्रालयले नै सचिवस्तरीय जाँचबुझ समिति गठन गर्‍यो समितिले त नेपालमा यस्ता कार्यका लागि प्रावधान नै नभएको ठहर गरेपनि पछि बाध्य भएर पोखरा विमानस्थलमा उडानको लागि अनुमति त दियो तर, विमान चालक विमा, तेस्रो पक्ष क्षति विमा लगायतको करोडौं बराबरको विमा शुल्क तिर्नुपर्ने भनी फेरि अनुमति रद्द गरेको थियो । शुल्क तिर्न नसकेपछि सम्पुर्ण क्षतिको जिम्मेवारी पुल्चोक क्याम्पसले नै व्यहोर्ने गरी एक वर्षो कडा परिश्रममा एकसाता अघिमात्रै उडान अनुमति पाएको थियो । (story of Made in Nepal, Danfe)

अन्तिम लडाइ बाँकी छ - गिरिजाप्रसाद कोइराला

नेपाली कांग्रेसका सभापति गिरिजाप्रसाद कोइरालाले अन्तिम लडाईको लागि प्रजातान्त्रिक शक्तिहरुलाई एक हुन आह्वान गर्नुभएको छ । उहाले त्यस्तो लडाइ प्रजातन्त्रको रक्षार्थ हुनेपनि प्रष्ट पार्नुभयो । ललितपुरमा आयोजित तेक्वान्दो खेलकुद प्रतियोगिताको उदघाटन गर्दै कोइरालाले संविधान सभा निर्वाचनमा पराजित हुदैमा नआत्तिकन मनोवल उच्च राख्न आग्रह गर्नुभयो । निर्वाचन एउटा लडाई मात्रै हो । यसमा हार्दैमा आत्तिनु हुदैन, कोइरालाले भन्नुभयो, अन्ति लडाई त बाकी नै छ । त्यसको लागि युवा खेलाडीहरुले पनि साथ दिनुपर्छ ।

उहाले प्रजातन्त्र, मानवअधिकार, प्रेस स्वतन्त्रता र कानूनि राज्यको लागि कसैसग सम्झौता नगर्ने पनि वताउनुभयो । कोइरालाले खेलकुदमा डेप्लोमेटिक रोल हुने चर्चा गर्दै सरकारमा तनाव बढेको वेला पनि यो काम आउने बताउनुभयो ।

समाचार हिजो र आज - News Trends in Nepal (Kathmandu)

Presented here are brief news headings from गोरखापत्र  काठमाडौं २०४६ साल साउन ७ गते शनीवार (GORKHAPATRA DAILY). I have tried to dis-compare the situation of this 19 years. Dis-compare -- unsure of the word but I am sure, my CA representative will tell how can we compare Nepal 19 years ago with today's New Nepal, so do happens in everyday press conferences and face-to-face press meets in Kathmandu. Realization of press have been changed.

News of Politics, even deeper, news of which mantri said what and where is he. Oops! this is a trend. Rarely heard are news of development, education, senior citizen status, rural and remotes, peace and prosperity. We can ensure today's children will never know what the news had to give. Don't know who is this-- today's civilized and highly mobilized patrakaars or the mouth-pieced netas.

हामी विश्वोमा न्यायपूर्ण स्थायी शन्तिका लागि चालिने हरेक कदमको सराहना गर्दछौ। श्री ५ बिरेन्द्र

भुपु राजा अहेले त एक सामान्य नागरिक भएका छन, but still I am lucky to see his smiling face on papers previous week or the next. All the quotes of Late Kings must have been no more after Naya Nepal is a brand new product with no History.

भारतीय प्रधानमन्त्रीको पछील्लो टिप्पणी तथ्यहिन

India is always the same, हिजो पनि कमेन्ट गर्थियो र आज पनि। After all, there is no PRACTICAL existence of Naya Nepal without India, the Great.

कराते प्रतियोगितामा नेपाललाई नौ स्वर्ण पदक

Obviously, Nepal is far better in fighting even today except it gets that much medals.

श्री ५ बाट विधेयकमा स्विक्रिती प्रदान

Oops! the previous king again. आज भोली हाम्रा प्रधानमन्त्री प्रचन्ड पत्रीकाको प्रथम पेजमा आएझै हो। नयाँ नेपाल भएपनी उद्घघाटन र भाषाण बाहेक अरु कुनै कुराले फुर्सद छैन। एकादेशमा राजाले नियम कानुन बनाउथ्ये तर आजभोलि नियम कानुन नै नभएको नयाँ नेपाल भन्ने देश छ। I don't think I am too sophisticated over here.

खेल्कुद बिकासमा क्लबहरुको सक्रियता आवश्यक

Sports must be one of the most neglected priorities after बिकास, yesternights and today noons both are the same for sports in Nepal, however it's lived by a single whole page in papers.

ग्रीस द्वारा शान्ती क्षेत्र प्रस्ताबको समर्थन

के हो यो भनेको। शन्ती क्षेत्र त अब बल्ल बन्छ नि नयाँ नेपाल होइन र ! त्यो त सामन्तीहरुले बनाएको कुरा न हो। This is not Surrealism, but a view laden art.

समसमयीक प्रश्न मा सदनको ध्यानाकर्षण

के को सदन के को प्रश्न अनी के को समसमयीक कुरा नि, this is a pace according to those who have drawn pictograph of the New Nepal, (oops! I nearly forgot these people are called leaders)

This is not a view. This is a Naya Nepal where nothing is new except the shift+deleted history and 601 to lead and rent the whole nation into bricks. This is how I live by, you may not. I must admit fallacy over truth, I may not believe in my existence.

Nokia slides in new slide phone, the 6260 Slide

nokia 6260

A new Series40 phone by Nokia is no great surprise but with the new 6260 Slide, Nokia has announced a phone that looks really good on paper. For the first time an S40 phone will feature assisted GPS, which is a very good plus.

Additionally, a bunch of other features stand out on the 6260 Slide- there is the 5 megapixel Carl Zeiss camera with dual LED flash, a decent 2.4 inch screen that can support a resolution of 320x480 and can show up to 16 million colors; then there is the TV-Out port and you can extend the phone’s memory to a maximum of 8GB thanks to a microSD slot. Battery life is supposed to last about 4 hours and 6 hours with normal usage on 3G and GSM networks respectively. The phone also has support for Wi-Fi.

Nokia can be expected to launch the phone sometime in January or February of next year for around €300 (Rs. 19,295).
