My adventure with windows xp sp3 rc

ok ppl after a 3hrs wait i downloaded the windows xp sp3 rc (336mb) n very quickly i installed it...
bt after the restart to my surprise my flyakite osx theme ws gone... bt the transformation pack traces were still visible... after some googling i realized dt it ws sp3's uxtheme.dll that ws responsible.. so i removed osx transformation pack n downloaded the vista transformation pack 8.01 which ac. to users is compatible with xp-sp3 but evrytime i started the installation setup crashed.. ds ws due to intel graphics driver so i uninstalled it n installed a standby dell graphics driver i got from net n then i installed vtp 8.01 bt still same problem transformation done but no vista theme.. problem:-uxtheme.dll not supported on this os... then after some more search i got a soln.. i downloaded the patched uxtheme.dll file for my version of xp-sp3 release candidate n now hw to use it manually.. first rename uxtheme.backup in system32 to _uxtheme.backup dn rename uxtheme.dll to _uxtheme.dll n nowpaste the patched uxtheme.dll in this folder n yehhh... vista visual themes are back....
so now i hv vtp 8.01 on my xp-sp3 rc....

Photo Albums on orkut

Now that you can have 100 photos, we thought you might want to organize them into multiple albums to make it easier for you and others to enjoy. We were looking for ways to group all of our photos on orkut based on the different experiences that they shared. Today, orkut will be launching Photo Albums! Have many photos from a recent trip? Create an album specifically for that trip. Lots of pics from a recent night out with friends? Create another album with just those photos!

All of your current photos will be stored by default in their own album. Feel free to setup new ones by going to "photos" from your homepage. Once you have created an album, simply click on it and start uploading new photos inside. You can also change the cover photo by clicking on "edit" of the photo that you want to appear, and then selecting "album cover."

smsgupshup v/s vakow updated.


SmsGupshup n vakow are two big sms fwding/chat services available on net.... although both the sites allow you to send a common sms to your friend list but after using both the services i can easily compare the two sevices...

Lets start with positive & negetive points of webaroo's smsgupshup.com

plus points..

  • picture msg can also be fwded

  • normal chat is also possible so once joined u can easily chat free of cost

  • more sms in gallery because of more users

  • poll,quiz and reviews are some really good features becuase of them one can quiz its friends or can start a poll.


negative points...

  • premium no so more charges to post and subscribe

  • ads gets attached with fwded sms's

  • less control on subscriptions (u cant set limit of msges u want to get in a day or cant set time of day when you dont want to recieve any msg)

  • website navigation not very good.


analysis of vakow.com

plus points...

  • 10 digit no. so very esy to post n to subscribe (national msg are free or cheeper than premium no.)

  • u can set a limit on no. of msg's u want to recieve in a day n can also set a time span when u don't want to receive any msg {u can sleep properly}.

  • website design really comfortable

  • no ads so looks like a personalized service

  • can also scrap all ur orkut frens a common sms fwd.


update:-

  • very fast now.. msg delievery is almost instantaniou...

  • can be used as an sms blog.

  • creatingan acc from mobile has also been made simple.

  • use of tags really help when searching for a particular type of msg.


negative points... looks like all the negative points have been converted to positive points..


  • no picture msg support  vakow now allows you to send picture msg too...

  • no personal msg allowed {a msg needs to have a score of more than +2 in order to get fwded to ur fren list} but as a matter of fact this also acts as a plus point for some ppl who just want to use this service to fwd n get fwded msg's.   you can now post any msg no minimum score required.



  • simple sms fwd engine so no extra features like poll n quiz.


well this is my analysis if you find any more diff. just add it in the comments.
