Hack your mind – How to Memorize or Remember Anything

Memorize is quite useful techniques for studying and memorization by learning special style. The first thing to do is clear your mind i.e. bombard ALL your senses — seeing, hearing, talking, smelling, touching. Always read in nice and clean room.

This article offers some help to learn by heart:

In college, I memorized 7 chapters of my psychology textbook — over 23,000 words. Yes, I could actually recite the entire 7 chapters to anyone willing to listen.

Why did I do this? My professor had challenged me with two statements on the first day of class: 1) No student had ever aced his introductory exam; and 2) all the answers could be found in the first 7 chapters of the textbook.

Desktop Supercomputer Prototype Created

Maryland Professor creates desktop Supercomputer ( a mainframe computer that is among the largest, fastest, or most powerful of those available at a given time) using nothing but normal desktop computer parts.

A prototype of what may be the next generation of personal computers has been developed by researchers in the University of Maryland’s A. James Clark School of Engineering. Capable of computing speeds 100 times faster than current desktops, the technology is based on parallel processing on a single chip.

Parallel processing is an approach that allows the computer to perform many different tasks simultaneously, a sharp contrast to the serial approach employed by conventional desktop computers. The prototype developed by Uzi Vishkin and his Clark School colleagues uses a circuit board about the size of a license plate on which they have mounted 64 parallel processors. To control those processors, they have developed the crucial parallel computer organization that allows the processors to work together and make programming practical and simple for software developers.

Wifi longest link record set to 237 miles i.e. 381 kilometer

Wifi is short for wireless fidelity. WiFi has gained acceptance in many environments as an alternative to a wired LAN. Many airports, hotels, and other services offer public access to WiFi networks so people can log onto the Internet and receive emails on the move. These locations are known as hotspots.

However wifi network puts restrictions – you must be within the range of the WAPs, the wireless end user has a full network connection with the benefit of mobility. One IEEE 802.11 WAP can typically communicate with 30 client systems located within a radius of 100 m.

A Venezuelan techie apparently has set a new record for longest WiFi link. Networking guru Ermanno Pietrosemoli established a wireless connection between a PC in El Aguila, Venezuela, and one in Platillon Mountain, a distance of about 237 miles, mostly using off-the-shelf equipment and a few hacked parts.

Howto setup and configure Windows Server 2003 DHCP server

The Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) is a set of rules used by communications devices such as a computer, router or network adapter to allow the device to request and obtain an IP address from a server which has a list of addresses available for assignment. The Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) is a member of the TCP/IP suite and a protocol that is designed to save network administrators a lot of time and effort. A successful DHCP implementation can do just that.

This article explains setting up DHCP on tens, hundreds, and even thousands of computers can be daunting. Here’s how to do it easily with Windows Server 2003:

As you probably already know, every computer that communicates on a network does so via an IP (layer 4) address. The goal of DHCP is to provide a mechanism of automated address delivery, to give every computer its own IP address without an administrator having to type them all in manually. In small networks, this isn’t too big of an issue. However, in networks with tens, hundreds, and even thousands of computers, the task of IP address management is daunting. Luckily, Windows Server 2003 provides a means for us to implement DHCP with its own DHCP server service

Sunita Williams sets records for female space travelers and longest spaceflight

Sunita Lyn “Suni” Williams is a NASA astronaut. She was assigned to the International Space Station as a member of Expedition 14 and then joined Expedition 15. Williams is the second woman of Indian heritage to have been selected by NASA for a space mission after Kalpana Chawla and also the second astronaut of Slovenian heritage after Ronald M. Sega. She holds three records for female space travelers: longest spaceflight (188 days and counting), number of space walks (four), and total time spent on spacewalks (29 hours and 17 minutes).

I’m sure this will encourage and inspires more women in our county (and anywhere in the world) to join hi tech studies, engineering and other fields :)

Apple iPhone vs Nokia, blackberry phones

The iPhone is a multimedia and Internet-enabled mobile phone from Apple computers.

The iPhone’s functions include those of a camera phone, a multimedia player, mobile phone, and Internet services like e-mail, text messaging, web browsing, Visual Voicemail and wireless connectivity. iPhone input is accomplished via touchscreen with virtual keyboard and buttons. The iPhone is a quad-band GSM phone.

Apple today announced that iPhone will deliver significantly longer battery life when it ships on June 29 than was originally estimated when iPhone was unveiled in January. iPhone will feature up to 8 hours of talk time, 6 hours of Internet use, 7 hours of video playback or 24 hours of audio playback. In addition, iPhone will feature up to 250 hours—more than 10 days—of standby time. Apple also announced that the entire top surface of iPhone, including its stunning 3.5-inch display, has been upgraded from plastic to optical-quality glass to achieve a superior level of scratch resistance and optical clarity.

No coconuts at Siddhivinayak temple

Ganesha’s Shree Siddhivinayak Ganapati Mandir will not allow coconuts and big garlands. This is due to terrorist threats.

The sources at the temple say, is based on Israeli intelligence advice given to Indian agencies. The Israelis have apparently told Indian authorities that terrorists may use garlands and coconuts in their attacks on Hindu shrines.

This is really a bad news for most of us. Just imagine going to mandir without coconuts. This kind of act shows that how much we are terrified. Given that over 10,000 coconuts pass through the temple doors each day temple authorities say it’s practically impossible to check every one of them. This temple has tremendous importance and status in our society and especially in Mumbai. The Siddhivinayak Mandir evolved from a small, tiny place of worship to the Grand Temple that stands today in the later half of the twentieth century. The glory to the temple was bought not only by the politicians who frequented the temple but also numerous bollywood filmstars who continuously visit the temple to seek the blessings of Lord Ganesh.

I hope terrorist will never ever able to win and destroy peace loving society by the the blessings of Lord Ganesh :D
