Session Saver for Firefox

When I switched to Firefox from Opera, one of the features I missed most in Firefox was Session Saver. In Opera when you close browser it saves the last opned pages which are restored automatically when Opera re-starts.

I just found an extension which can save sessiosn ,like opera, even during crash.

You can find here the installation link. In case if the link is dead, try finding "SessionSaver" at Firefox extension site.

Procrastination :(

I do procrastinate a lot and worst part of it that I am aware about this. I try to procrastinate a job until its deadline , then do it in hurry.

I procrastinate mostly such job, for which I am of opinion that it would be failure or it would not turn out as I expect.

Last month, I completed job on the last day of the deadline (28/02/2005) , which I could easily have completed in the first week of the month. I delayed it for entire month, and that too deliberately, believing that I have entire month to complete the job:(

I try to find excuse to postpone such job like I have another important job to do or I have plenty of time to do etc.,

I have tried different method to overcome it. First when I believe there is too many tasks at hand (only due to I postponed them) I make a TO DO list of pending jobs and give numbers to the jobs according to priorities. That works well. (Honestly, sometime I even postpone preparing TO DO LIST)

Recently I am trying different one. I simply concentrate on any one job, forgetting - not bothering the other jobs while first is not complete. I find this one easier. One job at a time.

But best of all is to never to post pone anything ( that I cannot do)

I found this really good article on procrastination and how to overcome it.

I want to get rid of it.

Is it hoax or real happening?

I just received following e-mail.

Dear Friends,

Kindly take a couple of minutes to go thru this mail. If useful may advise others also .

This happened in Paris recently and may happen elsewhere also.

A few weeks ago, in a movie theatre, a person felt something poking from her seat. When she got up to see what it was, she found a needle sticking out of the seat with a note attached saying "You have just been infected by HIV".

The Disease Control Center (in Paris) reports many similar events in many other cities recently.

All tested needles were HIV Positive. The Center also reports that needles have been found in cash dispensers
at public banking machines. We ask everyone to use extreme caution when faced with this kind of situation.

All public chairs/seats should be inspected with vigilance and caution before use.

A careful visual inspection should be enough. In addition, they ask that each of you pass this message along to all members of your family and your friends of the potential danger.

We all have to be careful at public places, rest God help! Just think about saving a life by forwarding this message.

Please, take a few seconds of your time to pass along.


What you think of it? is it rumour or just another internet hoax ?

Please give your feed back, I will delete the post if it is a hoax. Spread the if it is true.

I am trying to find the story through google.

UPDATE!! It turned out to be a hoax check this

Mobile mystery

While reading a post at Bill's blog about funny mobile incident, I recalled an incident ,not funny but mysterious, happened with my cell phone .

At one night , I was working (blogging to be honest) late on computer, suddenly a person known to me called and asked me if I had given miss call on his cell? I said no, why I need to call someone at mid-night. I was surprised so I checked my cell to see "last dialed" numbers but his number was not found, and I knew I had never dialed that number from my cell, or it was not on my speed dial key, so there was no possibility of accidental dialing of that number.

Next day morning I checked his cell and he was right, there was my number displayed . I am still confused about the incident, I don't know the reason how it happened.

Is it possible to receive someone call when your number is dialed from that number ?
Is it server problem of Mobile Service Provider ?
Or is it warm or virus ?

I will pour more information if you need to solve the mystery.
