Revolutionizing the web through 140 words.  The concept was seen with eyebrows raised by everyone initially. but soon it became popular .. very popular.. i mean twitter

i registered in twitter on 07/07/08 but initially wasn’t very active on twitter.. in fact like any other lay man it took time for me to understand what is its essence. The Question “what are you doing ?” is i think the 2nd simplest question anyone can ask you. First one being “How are you?”

There are a few people who took the twitter question “what are you doing?” in a literal sense . @alenp being one of them.
I suggest a change in the twitter question just for those who can’t think beyond anything literal “what where How when why?” one word extra but more meaning or meaningless!!!! anyway i read it somewhere and it just came to my mind while thinking about twitter.

till a recent time back being online meant we are nto in real world. but now things are changing. online friends meeting up quite often and much important. the online friends knows each other very well and are mostly of the same mindset to accept each other (do you think otherwise they would have become friends?)

Orkut meets,Twitter meets etc happening very often and good participation every time..

last weekend i had the Orkut meet up of Kerala Friends Club community and also in the same evening i attended the cochin Twitter meet up aka Tweetup (#coktup, @sid88 coined it). more details of the #coktup available at twitterkerala.com

Lots of business for proper users and for spammers its almost loosing customers..  that is the online world (or rather twitter) today for you.

Will be back with more about it. soooooon

between here i’m on twitter @zeqox
tailnote:     Is Tweeting killing blogging ? i feel so …

Rule 49-O has been the hottest email doing its rounds in the last couple of weeks. to be specific after the mumbai terror attacks.

I got the mail from more than 50 people and still keeps on getting it. and io’ve seen the same post hundreds of times in orkut communities.  To be honest i belived it was a true mail and even posted a topic in an orkut community.  But that night when i sat in front of compouter , i observed  that the way the emails opf 49-O are coming in are just like the usual chain emails . That made me research on the topic.

First I searched for an e-copy of the constitution of india.  and later realizing that i saw the phrase conduct of elections 1961 in most of the emails  i searched for it instead of the constitution .  and to make my search easier i opted for search only in the gov.in and nic.in domains

And soon I was successfull in getting the e-copy of conduct of election rules  1961 . I got it  from the website of Law Ministry .  Here is the link to that.

I actually found the rule 49-O stated in the e copy of  Conduct of Elections Rules 1961 .

49-O.   Elector  deciding  not  to  vote.-If  an  elector,  after  his electoral  roll number has been duly entered in the register of voters in  Form-17A and has put his signature or thumb impression thereon  as required  under  sub-rule (1) of rule 49L, decided not to  record  his vote,  a remark to this effect shall be made against the said entry in Form  17A  by  the  presiding  officer  and  the  signature  or  thumb impression of the elector shall be obtained against such remark.

It had nothing saying about the repoll or nothing about the barring of candidates etc.  That made me research further on the topic. This time I searched for the counting procedure. so that i can know if the NO VOTEs is counted at any stage.  and eventually i reached at the pdf link of  handbook to the collection agents

Here in the end i found one column asking the counting agent to write in the number of NO VOTEs as per the rule 49-O. but prioceeding further i understood that  writing the Number of   NO VOTEs is only to make sure that the total number of Votes tally with the voting slips issued.

And i searched further and found that lots of  proposals for Making the NO Votes of 49-O rule countable as it is said in the email forwards has gone to the governnment and it has never been put into action

NOW FRIENDS WE HAVE NO OPTION LIKE NO VOTES AND BAR THE CANDIDATE FROM ELECTIONS . its just another Email hoax.

ALONG WITH YOU I TOO PRAY THAT THE PROPOSAL TO MAKE THE NO VOTE COUNTABLE IS PUT INTO ACTION

LET US ANNOUNCE TO THESE POLITICIANS WE WILL VOTE FOR YOU ONLY IF YOU PROMISE TO MAKE THE 49-O EMAIL TRUE

I would say for any keralite including me  the Blunder of the year 2008 is Kerala’s own chief minister V S Achuthanandan.

Emotional when he should not be emotional

Idle when he should be active

Active when he should be Inactive

Talking When he should be silent.

Walking when he should be idle

Silent when he should be speaking

Senseless when he should be sensefull

Do you need more reasons for electing him as the Blunder of the Year??

Caste your votes for the Kerala Blunder of the year 2008


I just thought about what to write about.

i’ll write about orkut..  infact my experiences with orkut

i joined in orkut sometime in early 2006 i dont remember the exact date but i remember it was in february.  i staqrted orkuting just out of curiosity but now its has become part of my life..  i found my old pals  through orkut.  i think the older generations has benefited more from this cute tool as most of them found their very long missing pals through orkut.

For me its everything… i decided to leave orkut many time but i wasnt late to understand i cant leave it.

my 600+ friends out there.. i know each of them in person.  The life without orkut would have been totally different.

The good and the bad ..   yes orkut has both sides of which i would like to concentrate on the good side.  yes i’m an addict of orkut (i think i will put this on the bad side of orkut) it makes everyone an addict of itself.

here is the link to my orkut profile

enjoy orkutting..
