Beauty of MatheMazic

1 x 8 + 1 = 9
12 x 8 + 2 = 98
123 x 8 + 3 = 987
1234 x 8 + 4 = 9876
12345 x 8 + 5 = 98765
123456 x 8 + 6 = 987654
1234567 x 8 + 7 = 9876543
12345678 x 8 + 8 = 98765432
123456789 x 8 + 9 = 987654321

1 x 9 + 2 = 11
12 x 9 + 3 = 111
123 x 9 + 4 = 1111
1234 x 9 + 5 = 11111
12345 x 9 + 6 = 111111
123456 x 9 + 7 = 1111111
1234567 x 9 + 8 = 11111111
12345678 x 9 + 9 = 111111111
123456789 x 9 +10= 1111111111

9 x 9 + 7 = 88
98 x 9 + 6 = 888
987 x 9 + 5 = 8888
9876 x 9 + 4 = 88888
98765 x 9 + 3 = 888888
987654 x 9 + 2 = 8888888
9876543 x 9 + 1 = 88888888
98765432 x 9 + 0 = 888888888

Brilliant, isn't it?
And finally, take a look at this symmetry:

1 x 1 = 1
11 x 11 = 121
111 x 111 = 12321
1111 x 1111 = 1234321
11111 x 11111 = 123454321
111111 x 111111 = 12345654321
1111111 x 1111111 = 1234567654321
11111111 x 11111111 = 123456787654321
111111111 x 111111111=123456789 87654321

Beta Blogger Hacks

Did you notice my new Template with all the labels, archive and a whole new look and feel???Well you can also get to do all this and much more thanks to certain madmen who dedicated thier precious time in the hacks and made the blog look a lot better and gave the power in your hands

Have a look at my label cloud, I don't mean I invented it. Goodness me no. But here's how it's done:I was checking out Hackosphere where I found the expandable post summaries javascript hack, and saw a link to phydeaux3's blog, with this most excellent entry: Code for Beta Blogger Label Cloud.It's very clearly and beautifully explained, so all you need is to pay phydeaux3 a visit and follow the instructions. You can change the font family, colours and font sizes once you've entered the basic code in the right places.
Cheers to these men and many more...when i went googling around!!!!

For the book lovers

I have had a Palm tungsten & a symbian powered cell for some time now. And an avid reader too. I still remember how many sleepless night i spent googling for ebooks!!.Now that the dream has come true i thought i would share with you these links!!

Over 2,100 publicly-available ebooks from the University of Virginia Library's Etext Center, including classic British and American fiction, major authors, children's literature, American history, Shakespeare, African-American documents, the Bible, and much more.
Thousands more titles (currently web versions only) can be found in the Electronic Text Center's collections and projects, many of which are publicly accessible

Microsoft Word bug?

Interesting enough, according to Microsoft Word, Vinny spent 3709 minutes editing this document which is about 62 hours. I presume the actual time is much longer, since this does not reflect file versions. But even more interesting is the fact that this document was printed before it was created. Go figure how that works!!!!

Well Mr. Gates, we do agree with what you said "I believe that if you show people the problems and you show them the solutions they will be moved to act"

Going the IPOD way!!!

Secret XP Theme Uncovered!!!

Shortly after the launch of XP, somewhere in M$ HQ, someone on the M$ design team was in the progress of developing something for Media Center. It was believed to be way too powerful for public consumption and forever archived in the servers of M$. Now 3 years later, a young prodigy by the name of W3bbo saw light of this unheard theme, and traveled far and wide to unravel its mysteries. One theme to find. One theme to upload. One theme to download. One theme to rule them all.
hehehehe, enough Lord of the Rings talk for one day. Let me cut the crap and show you how to unravel this beauty.
Extract files to “c:\windows\resources\themes\royale noir” and double click on “luna.msstyles”. Select “Noir” from color scheme. Code-signed by Microsoft. No UXTheme hack required.
As I reiterate again, I take no credit for this amazing find. W3bbo did an amazing job uncovering this mystery XP theme, hats off to him !!! Just supporting his cause!!!!

Rule of 72 - frugal living ideas

There are so many temptations in our consumer-driven society. I mean, I already have an iPod Mini and I still want a iPod shuffle! And who doesn’t need another laptop? One of the ways I keep myself from spending too frivolously, other than the frugalness instilled by parents of limited means, is to keep in mind the magnificent wonder of compounding.
For instance, say you didn’t buy the 1K impulse item and instead put it into a stock market index fund, earning a reasonable average of 8% each year. After one year, you’d get 1.8K After two, you’ll have 2.26K. Not very exciting. But in thirty years that 1K will turn into over !!!! Now that is that 1K widget worth 50K? Or in my case, that 10K iPod Shuffle worth 50 K?? I think not. I like to use 30 thirty years because by then I’ll be 57 and ideally retired, and “saving” an extra thousand here and there will definitely help that happen. It also leads to the nice 10x factor.
A handy way to do compound interest in your head with other rates is to use the popular “Rule of 72. The rule of 72 states that in order to find the number of years required to double your money at a given interest rate, you can just divide the interest rate into 72. For example, if you want to know how long it will take to double your money at eight percent interest, divide 8 into 72 and you’ll get 9 years.
It also works backwards. If you want to double your money in four years, just divide 4 into 72 to find that it will require an interest rate of about 18 percent. This also means that a person with a credit card balance and a rate of 18% will, ignoring minimum payments, have their balance double in four years! Ouch.

Real happiness is cheap enough, yet how dearly we pay for its counterfeit

Ain't I different????

I don’t assume that popularity = crap;
I don’t assume that popularity = excellence.
I assume that popularity = popularity, and the reasons for that will vary. Ain't I different????

My view - Whenever people agree with me I always feel I must be wrong


India ponders moon landing

Our budget at the moment stands at just 37bn rupees [£435m]. A moon programme begins at 150bn rupees.

haha.....i dunno what the deal is with china too wanting to do the moon's an achievable goal..............but we have a good thing going on with outsourcing industries and i think investing the money in infrastructure and other priorities instead of a space programme !!!! Think of the returns sir!!!

Everything is possible just not too probable
