This year it all started with a very sunny morning.1st match was against “EClub Devils” a team of Oracle employee club representatives.
As it was the 1st match for us (Inventory United) all were fresh but did not have any kick practice before this match.Our 1st success came when Neil (me) converted a perfect pass by Zoheb to
a good looking Goal.Inventory dominated the first half totally and not a chance was given to the E-club.It was a best start possible. After Half time Inventory United were leading by 1-0 and more focused towards getting a lead which will be difficult to equalize.Ankuj, Zoheb ( later replaced  by Neil and  Soumya) carried on as forward striking some good shots just missing the goal post. At the other end it was Nittin (messi), Gagan and Darpan stood as rock irritating all the forwards of
Eclub devils.Unfortunately Sanjeev got some ankle injury just before the match and could not play in it.Finally Rajesh (Also Captain of Oracle Corporate Soccer team) showed his skills to score a unstoppable equaliser. It was 1-1.Again Rajesh from EClub Devils scored his second goal just few minutes before the end of 2nd half when Inventory United barely had any time to equalize.

2nd match was scheduled against “Spartans”  who earlier lost to “Eclub Devils”  0-2.Players of Inventory United were little tired after the 1st match and there was bit less time between the matches.Inventory United played with cool head showing their best and without trying very hard this time. Sanjeev showed some beautiful soccer skills making Sparta mid fielders look astonished and fall in the ground few times.1st goal came from Zoheb which was also engineered by Sanjeev himself in spite of injury. who deserved it for sure.1st Half it was 1-0.Ball possession was very high for Inventory United.Zoheb carried on snatching the ball from Spartans and passing to other forwards.I think if he were not in Oracle he would have been in FC Cochin Soccer Club.He later on the day got a call from Oracle Soccer Captain who was impressed by Zoheb’s  game. In second half Inventory United continued to play smart. Darpan and Gagan Kept on charging at the forward missing goalpost few times.There was some wonderful display by Goal Keeper Soumya who stoped some goal which could have been heart breaking for United. The final nail on the coffin came from captain Ankuj who looked hungry for goal since the Morning.Thanks to enormous stamina of  Nittin  who played the from the start of the game to the final whistle in both the games without substitutions and continuously making the United’s defence stronger.It was 2-0 when the finally whistle came.Team Sparta was strong but we were just better :)

Final list of 16 teams making it to the pre-quarters yet to come but Injuries acquired by most of the players and 10K run tomorrow  is the concern for the next games.
Thanks to the organizers who took so much pain to conducting each and every game successfully.

Looking forward to Leonid Meteor shower on 17th

Only 2 days to go but the sky is still not clear here at Hyderabad.Moreover ambient light of Hi-tech city always hinders sky watching.
I am hoping clouds will be cleared and we will be able to see.Its a new moon  on 17th of November 2009 which will add to the
darkness of the sky.

Check out Hrishikesh Joglekar's site

Some statistics

http://www.wolframalpha.com/input/?i=leonid

The annual Leonid meteor shower is expected to peak about 3 a.m. Tuesday morning.The Leonids, associated with the comet
Temple-Tuttle, produce bright streaks of light as the earth passes through and burns celestial dust ejected by the comet.

Publishing equations without images

Fibonacci number is the sum of the two previous ones, yielding the sequence.

0, 1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, 21, 34, 55, ... .

Fibonacci numbers are related to the golden ratio ? and to its conjugate , which are given by the following

phi  = [1 + sqrt{5}]/2 = 1.61803

 

bar{phi}   = [1 + sqrt{5}]/2 = -0.61803

F_{i}  = (phi -bar{phi}) / sqrt{5}

Note the above formulae are neither  image files on server  nor the special characters in HTML.

They are just images  which are dynamically generated by Google charts upon request with desired formula as parameter.

Extend Your Razor's Life with a Pair of Jeans





disposable razor blades, odds are they get dull more quickly than you'd like. Instructables points us to a video demonstration showing how to extend their utility with a pair of blue jeans.

The DIYer in the video says he's kept the same disposable razor sharp for six months. How? By taking a pair of jeans and running the razor up and down 10 to 20 times in one direction along the entire length of the jeans and then again in the opposite direction. Apparently "the threads of the jeans run in a diagonal so switching directions allows for [a] balanced approach to fine tuning the blade's edge."

Free Web Based Desktop Sharing

I am one of those who like instant desktop sharing for free without installing any software or configuring user account at the target PC.
This may sound bit greedy but I found some good solutions to it.

1. Adobe ConnectNow.I fond it most real time and fast and smooth if there is a broadband connection.

2.Web site Vyew (think view) lets you collaborate in real-time with other users in a web based meeting room.You can either start an anonymous meeting (requires no registration) and invite up to 2 users, or, if you go through the free registration, you can invite up to 20 participants and get a few other members-only benefits. Vyew offers photo sharing, whiteboarding, file sharing, screen captures, and can run from your browser without the need to download anything (sort of). Vyew requires Flash and Java.

3.Zoho Meeting is one of large number of free collaboration tools which does not need any extra installation.

 


 

However beside above these free tools I find Oracle Web conference most real time and efficient tool for desktop sharing.

Among paid services  GoToMyPC is the right solution if you are into small business and want the best productivity using screen sharing.

Wolfram|Alpha for Stargazers

Whether you are an astronomy student or just interested in learning more about those points of light in our sky, Wolfram|Alpha contains star data that will help you get started and understand what you’re seeing up there. Wolfram|Alpha not only charts the stars from your location, but offers detailed information including their distance from Earth, color, size, and much more.

To figure out which stars are the most visible to you, simply enter “10 brightest stars“. The query’s results indicate that the brightest stars as seen from Earth are the Sun, Sirius, Canopus, Arcturus, Rigel Kentaurus A, Vega, Capella, Rigel, Procyon, and Betelgeuse. Pods show comparisons of the stars’ size, their equilateral locations, and their locations in the current sky (not necessarily the night sky—unless you specify a time/location, Wolfram|Alpha assumes the current time from your current location).

 

The bright stars Capella, Betelgeuse, and Arcturus are all visible at night or before sunrise from Champaign, Illinois, USA, depending on the season. If you enter “Capella, Betelgeuse, Arcturus” into Wolfram|Alpha you’ll get a comparison of the three stars. It can tell you, for instance, that Betelgeuse, a super giant, is the largest of the three, and that Arcturus, which is found in the constellation of Boötes, is much closer to Earth than either Betelgeuse or Rigel. Capella and Betelguese are most easily seen on winter nights, whereas Arcturus is most easily seen on a spring night in the Northern Hemisphere. So repeat your query as time progresses to get current information. You can also add a date to your query to see where a star was, or will be, on a specific date.

Wolfram|Alpha is a fast and simple tool on your computer or mobile device to help you become more familiar with astronomy and stargazing . Enthusiasts have been discussing stargazing and other astronomy topics in the Wolfram|Alpha Community—please join the conversation there, and stay tuned for future blog posts about Wolfram|Alpha astronomical data.

How to fold a Shirt !!!

After my new webhost’s server crashed and I realised the difference between paid service and free service it took me several weeks to restore all the data and custom service files in my old sever and bring this site up and running.I realised any site who claims to offer  some extraordinary service for free for which other sites charge a little , is going to betray one day.Thanks to my intermittent habit of taking backups, I could restore the services of this site to a good extent.After so many days of technical work finally though of spending this weekend a little humorous way and solve the problems I always had.Many people will be surprised to know that one of the most easy stuff which was difficult for me was folding a shirt properly .Finally I got the following article/video which was so simple that i wish I would have come across it some 10 years back when I used to underestimate myself not being able to do so.       ||Courtesy::   How To: Fold a Dress Shirt [via Unclutterer]

45% IE and 37% Firefox (5% of safari Includes my Fav= Google Chrome)

73% XP and 10% Vista (2% of linux, mostly includes my Ubuntu dev system)

Again Google Search rocks who crawled our page 73% of the time leaving yahoo (14%) behind.Thanks to some amaizing posts like View Live solar eclipse , Mobile number search in India and Live train status and route which brought most of the traffic into this blog.

Meanwhile we have bought the domain neilghosh.com from GoDaddy.com and  upgraded to wordpress 2.7 (worpress.org) which has got a smooth interface both for audience and webmaster.

We have future plans to put more original contents and use more web 2.0 stuffs like Adobe Flex and dojo components to give the audience a feeling of  cutting edge web technology.

Take care

Happy new year !

After a relatively long gap (15th Nov Birthday to 1st Jan New year, I call it rest period though ;-) ) we are back again.OMG ! OMG ! Well I don't have anything special to start with but because it is a good day (I am not superstitious at all and don't believe in "Muhurat" yet) I just though to give some kick-off to the new year with some site statistics.

HAPPY NEW YEAR TO ALL
