What is the virtual memory?

When your system has a lack of RAM (Random Access Memory) to run a program or operating system, then windows collaborates the hard disk memory with RAM. Windows move data from RAM to the space of virtual memory called paging file. This frees up RAM and makes it available for other tasks.

Google Transliteration Image Hindi urdu marathi

Hindi Letters Image
Typing is one of the most important skills of computer users.  It was a time when people used Typewriters even now. I have experienced typing with those typewriters, it's very painful and expectation of mistake since letters are not erasable :) I learned to type with Typewriters when I was at a 9th standard 4 years ago. Hardworking is required to excel at this skill! Well, what if you have to learn another language like Hindi, Urdu, Arabic, Punjabi, Gujarati or any other Indic language? I'd not like to go and learn them all, who has time? I have had a software "Hindi  Writer" which helped me writing in Hindi with my roman (en-us) keyboard. Hindi Writer works well with ease.

          Recently Google launched a software Google Transliteration IME (Input Method Editor). Which allows users to write in a supported language like Hindi, Arabic, Marathi, Telugu etc with their existing roman keyboard. It doesn't translate the words but transliterates. Transliteration means a transcription from one alphabet to another or rewrites in a different script.
How does Google Transliteration IME work?
When you type a word say "Google" it converts (transliterates) the script according to the pronunciation instead of what it means in Hindi or another language as "गूगल"

Surf websites using binary - A geeky way

Is any site blocked by the network firewall of your school, college, office or your Hotel?

Last week we learned about "Surfing the web the geeky way" to get the IP address of any website and use it for browsing the pages. Readers asked is it convenient to ping and then to surf in that way?  What to take all that trouble?

Due to the potential danger of some websites or the misuse of Internet access, some network firewalls or the administrators block some sites. However, people have become smarter or pretend to be. Using of Proxy and other related software are not safe. As the method of finding the proxy is illegal.
I need this most because is not allowed to access in my college :( I don't know what their firewall thinks!

Sending free SMS Via! Is that really possible to send free SMS? Sending SMS has become a part of our life. Whether it is a festival, birthday, or any other occasion greeting friends by SMS has become a de facto nowadays. Calling is the secondary, We probably spent more money in sending text messages than the phone calls. Having an Internet connection adds to it. 

There are many online websites and offline software which provide free or cheap paid SMS services like Skype, 160 by 2, you mint, Indiarocks, smslife , text4free, textmefree, way2sms and thousands of more.

One may be puzzled using and trying these services, some give up searching for a suitable and reliable service including me. I have tried around 20 websites and finally arrived on two. Today I am going to talk about and, their features and comparison between them.
You probably have received at least a message with a footer note Sent Via

We need to be very conscious of our impact on the environment. The rate of carbon dioxide emission has increased abruptly. There is a myth that only automobile exhaust and stacks of industries emit carbon dioxide. But, carbon is emitted from all our daily life activites, be it driving the vehicle, eating food, electricity consumption, travel, wearing clothing, burning woods or oil, using paper, running the computers, using stationery, indulging in fashion, traveling the subway etc just to name a few.

Google Lab has been working on a related image search. Google introduced an organized image search feature: Google Image Swirl Image Swirl is very easy and pretty to use. First, it indexes the images in the stacked form of the similar images. I tried "Andaman Islands" to search the images. All related images are grouped behind the front images which represent the type of the group.
