New programming language "D"

D is a systems programming language. Its focus is on combining the power and high performance of C and C++ with the programmer productivity of modern languages like Ruby and Python. Special attention is given to the needs of quality assurance, documentation, management, portability and reliability.

D is statically typed, and compiles direct to native code. It's multiparadigm: supporting imperative, object oriented, and template metaprogramming styles. It's a member of the C syntax family, and its look and feel is very close to C++'s. For a quick feature comparison, see this comparison of D with C, C++, C# and Java.

It is not governed by a corporate agenda or any overarching theory of programming. The needs and contributions of the D programming community form the direction it goes.

There are currently two implementations, the Digital Mars DMD package for Win32 and x86 Linux, and the GCC D Compiler package for several platforms, including Windows and Mac OS X.

A large and growing collection of D source code and projects are at dsource. More links to innumerable D wikis, libraries, tools, media articles, etc. are at dlinks.

My GMail account, the home of SPAMs !!

I dont know if every GMail users are bombarded with spams but I am sure, my email address is known to every spammer.

I just made a small test and numbers are unexpected.

I get 1372 spam mails in 10 days !!! GMail need to improve upon spam attacks! I agree, they put almost all mails inside Spam folder but if they are sure that this is a spam attack why even delivering spams!! Windows live mail has extra ordinary techniques to fight with spam attacks!! I get 2 spams a month in my live account.

New Version of Google Talk

There's a new version of Google Talk: While there's no obvious new feature except for Vista support, it's interesting to look at some additions from the previous versions.

When you invite someone with a non-Gmail address, a new dialog informs you that Google Talk tries to see if that person uses another compatible service, like Gizmo or Earthlink.

Links to Gmail from Google Talk send you to the secured version of Gmail (you'll notice that the URL starts with https).

There are also some new status messages, but they aren't visible yet: "Show who I am chatting with", "Chatty", "talking w/".
