Blog Moved

Hello people, I wanted a bit more flexibility, so I moved this blog here: http://gastly.iblogger.org/ (soon, I will get a domain name for it, preferable http://www.gastly.info/ (I’m a cheapskate 😛 )) so please update all your bookmarks 🙂

I’ve already done a couple of posts there, I hope you’ll like them 🙂
And yeah, this blog is going to be there, don’t worry, but just for archival purposes, the new blog will have it all 🙂
So please support the new blog as you supported this one…any suggestions are always welcome! 😀

I run this blog to help people and you guys deserve an applause!! Thanks for supporting me!! :))

See you at my new home 🙂

Undernet IRC Network Blocked In India…

NOTE: This is a sticky and it will remain on the top until this issue has been resolved (or, if I change my mind 😛 ). Please scroll down for new posts.

Update: I’ve made a forum to discuss this topic further, so people can interactively share information about this here. Also, please note that you need to register to view the more ‘appropriate’ content of the forum, so please do so. If you’re not someone from the govt. then you’ll probably find the post in the forums *wink* 😉

UPDATE: It’s been confirmed that Undernet has been blocked by most of the Indian ISP’s. This post confirms it and the comment by anand has also confirmed that the Indian government has blocked Undernet. It’s time for some serious action people, we can’t just keep quiet, it’s a violation of our rights. I’ve added a poll, so please vote and tell your ideas in the comments 🙂

PS: I also request everyone to Stumble and Digg this post in order to spread awareness to all other people of the world. There is also a Google Group that has been created about this issue, visit it here.

UrlbarExt [Firefox Extension]

UrlbarExt is an extension for firefox (all OS’s), which adds lots of useful functionality to the Firefox’s ‘Awesome bar’.

It adds buttons to the Awesome bar to do simple tasks – like copying a url to the clipboard – with just a click of a button. This not only saves time, it adds makes things more produtive.

The feature that I personally like about UrlbarExt is it’s feature of making Tinyurl at just a click of a button! Cool eh? 😉

This addon is also featured on one of my favorite lifehacking blogs LifeHacker.

So, download this addon and make your life more easier (at least when using firefox :p ).

Firefox Bookmarks Sorter [Firefox Extension]

Hello everyone 🙂

I found a cool new Firefox extension which helps in sorting the Firefox bookmarks. It’s called SortPlaces and it can be found here.

Here’s a post from GHacks which explains all the stuff’s of this extension.

The main thing is that this extension is experimental, so you need to register on the Firefox addons website to be able to download it, but it’s worh it if you have tons of bookmarks (like me 😛 ) and if you don’t want to sort each of them manually.
