Facebook and Privacy

This week big revolution happened in the most popular social network web site Facebook with it's introduction of new privacy settings. So I just did some analysis going through some forums.

The changes treat as "publicly available information" the following: your name, profile picture, current city, gender and networks, and the pages you're a fan of.
Until now, you had the option of restricting much of that information. That option has been removed.

And also friend list is now included in mandatory public information and users can no longer control which friends can see their friends list.This was another negative point in privacy that pointed out in some forums.

And also the other shocking thing that I found out that the Facebook people have reset the privacy settings of the users accounts and some users who haven't logged in recently does not know that all their details are now can be access publicly.

I think Facebook people should be more careful about what they do in connection with privacy of Facebook users.

Politicians And Road Names in Sri Lanka

In my life one of the people i really hate are politicians because of their lies & they all ways make problems to people rather than giving solutions to the people.

This is a story about a similar case that the politician making bloody mess out of a road name.I am living in Maharagama Pradeshiya Sabha area and one day they have just removed the old name board of our lane and replaced with a new name.

They never informed us about the changing the name and what we found about the real truth about this incident is really shocking.

The rename have occurred due to family living in our road and with a backing of a politician in the Maharagama Pradeshiya Sabha.The family needed to name the road by their fathers name who is nobody and haven't done any work to the area.By the backing of a dirty politician they have done so.

In our lane there around more than 35 families living and nobody except the family who have involved in this incident doesn't like this move. So we have written a latter with our signatures to the Maharagama Pradeshiya Sabha to reinstall the previous name of the road. And after few weeks they have sent a letter asking both parties who like & dislike the move to come to Maharagama Pradeshiya Sabha to settle the problem rather than reinstalling the previous name that has been for the last 25 years.

This is a just another single small incident that have created by politicians in Sri Lanka that shows that they are capable of creating new problems rather than solving problems that is already occurred.

At Last Watched Transformers 2

Yesterday with some of friends i watched Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen at Majestic City.

It was really great action packed movie that should really watch. I think they had increased the action scene in the latest Transformer movie than the first one.

Although i haven't found any torrent of the film i will post a web site that does have some links to watch this film online.
So if you have not watched this amazing film don't miss it watch it.

What Google is going to put their hands in operating systems?? That's right!! That is going to be happen in 2010 according to official Google Blog.

The new OS also known by Google Chorme going to be a open source and it is going to be a grate thing and i hope that Google will launch it's OS in a amazing manner.

Kaspersky Really Let me down............

Today I had a bad day with a spyware because of my trust worthy anti-virus Kaspersky failed to do it's job.

Yesterday one of my friend borrowed my flash drive and returned to me this morning, knowing that there maybe nasty surprise waiting inside my pen drive i immediately scanned my pen drive with Kaspersky anti-virus and it came all clear in the scan.

So without thinking i right click on the pen drive icon and opened it.For a second i thought that i have done a mistake because it took some time(30 seconds) to open the pen drive & it opened in a separate window.But still i didn't got any idea about what is happening behind the screen.

When i open my Internet Explorer(IE) browser i found that my home page that i have set to yahoo in IE have been changed to a site call "www.cssa.co.nr" and IE window title "Chiku was here - gchinthaka@gmail.com".

i immediately scanned my pen drive in my old machine which has free AVG virus guard and AVG immediately caught the culprit a file call "chiku2008.vbs" a VBScript virus.
So Kaspersky really shattered the trust that i have to it by letting a small VBScript virus to get though uncaught.

i removed all the registry values that starts with "Chiku" but still when ever i change the "Window Title" in windows registry it will not save the change.
And i found out that in my running processes there was this "wscript.exe" and when i kill that process and edit the registry value it solve my problem.

But when i google about it i found out that wscript.exe is a windows process that handle VB scripts and i found a software Noscript.exe from symantec.com to disable this process.

So after wasting hours i finally got through this shit and if i caught the person who develop this virus crap i surely going to kill him.
From now on i am not going to trust Kaspersky or the crap IE.

Vacancy For Batsman In Sri Lankan National Cricket Team!!

Probably in next few months Sri Lankan Cricket board will be putting a public advertisement for 'Vacancy For Batsman's' as the Sri Lankan team crashed landed in ICC T20 world cup 2009 in front of a inconsistent Pakistan team because of the failure of the Batsman's.

Specially Jehan Mubarak & Chamara Silva should be replaced because of their total failure in this tournament.They have been selected as full time batsman and haven't acted as batsman.

So Sri Lankan Cricket board should find some all rounders such as TM dilshan,Sanath Jayasooriya that can bat well rather than depending on full time batsman who fails to do their job.

I am really disappointed of Sri Lankan team in ICC T20 world cup 2009 finals.They should have done better than this.

Sri Lanka goes for ICC World Twenty20 2009 semis in style!

Sri Lanka's once again display to the world that the Sri Lankan team is the best in the Twenty20 cricket by slicing through New Zealand at Trent Bridge and securing the spot in the semi-finals of the ICC World Twenty20 2009.

It is very amazing to watch Sri Lanka play although Sri Lankan master blaster Sanath Jayasuriya failed this match but TM Dilshan,kumar sangakkara & mahela jayawardena manage to get Sri Lanka a good 159 total.

New Zealand challenged the target of 159 briefly but Ajantha Mendis turned the game Sri Lanka's way by dismissing Ross Taylor and Scott Styris within a single over.

This is grate match exhibit the unity & team work of Sri Lankan team by everyone in the team contribute to the massive win of 48 runs against New Zealand.

I hope that Sri Lanka will be able to win ICC World Twenty20 2009 series.

Great Sri Lankan comedian Annesley Dias Farewell to the Nation

Annesley Dias, a great comedian Sri Lanka have ever produced, passed away on June 12th. He was 81 years at his death. Annesley, a versatile comedian, not only made his audiences laugh, but also really happy.

He became popular as Hamu Mahaththaya in the Vinoda Samaya radio drama.

Later, he acted roles in several television programs.Anesley Dias engaged mostly in comic dramas with Berty Goonathilaka and Samuel Rodrigo, also with Mercy Edirisingha.

I have attached one of YouTube videos that i came across that was telecasted in early 90's. I really like those sinhala comedies of Anesley Dias, Berty Goonathilaka and Samuel Rodrigo triple when i was a child and still feel the feeling when i watched these old videos.

So it's very sad day for all the fans of this grate comedian....

USB Keybord Issue Really Got Me!!

I was helping one of my friends in installing his new machine with Windows XP when i really came across this scenario.

After i set the BIOS first boot devise as the CD ROM and trying to boot from the windows XP CD the screen shows that it has detected the CD and shows the message "Press any key to boot from CD" but when i press Enter or any other key it skip to the next boot device.

Finally i found out that although the keyboard works fine when you in BIOS screen but as soon the PC trying to boot from the CD the keyboard get disable. This is really funny!! :P
So finally i tried out a PS/2 keyboard guessing that there may be issues with USB keyboards and my guess was right and it really booted from CD like a baby. :D

I don't know what was the reason for this unpredictable behavior. probably the motherboard issue(it's a Gigabyte motherboard) or else the keyboard(maybe because the keyboard is Panora brand made in China) or else it's probably a issue with USB keyboards it self.

I really don't know the actual answer but i will never going to recommend a USB keyboard to anyone in future!!

Can Microsoft Bing Conqure World Of Search Engines?

Microsoft have officially unveiled its new search engine "Bing" which is the replacement for the unpopular Live Search of Microsoft.

I tried this Bing search engine and seems to me that there is no special difference and to me it's like copying features from ask.com and Google search engines.

Probably it's too early to predict the future of this new Microsoft Bing search engine because it's just launched but i think to compete with Google, Microsoft people should do better than this.
In the future i hope that battle for search engines going to be a hot topic.

New E-learning system in Sri Lanka (www.webceylon.com)

Today i got a email probably a spam email from a person call Chatura Perera about a web site call webceylon.com, because of my curiosity i checked the web site and found that it is a new E-learning system for Sri Lankan students.

Although this web site state that this is the Sri Lanka first video based Sinhala and English E-learning system, i do not agree with it because there are some web site such as kuppiya.com that have entered to the cyberspace before webceylon.com.

There are lot of improvement is needed to webceylon.com web site that is allowing people to go through download section without registering.Because normally people are reluctant to register because it is time consuming and do not wish to give away there details to unknown people.

At the moment this E-learning system only have few basic video tutorial probably because it's new to cyberspace.
It's grate to see that the videos can be streamed through this web site but it will be fabulous if there is a facility to download videos also.

So at the end i can only say that if you a person who are searching for video tutorials this is going to be good spot for you in the future.

Yahoo Mail and it's Error Code 2

One of my friend just asked me to help him out a question regarding his yahoo email account. His problem was that he was unable to access his yahoo emails although he can access the address book and other stuffs. When he try to check the mail above screen shot error occurs.

He have tried the link below error message that says to "Contact Customer Care about Error Code 2" and filled the form that pop ups but still there haven't been a solution for him for the last 3 weeks.

I Google for the specific problem and found out that it is a problem that occurs at yahoo server side and only option that we have to wait till the yahoo guys fixed the problem. Seems like it's some sort of a random problem and the yahoo support team is very slow in fixing the issues. So I must advice yahoo team that if they do not keep up there customer satisfaction up to standard they are going to loose their customers to competitive companies like gmail.
