Playing .RM file (real media) from Winamp..

Was just trying to play RM files from winamp. Winamp does not have native support for playing RM files, so, we have to install the plug in to winamp for playing those files.

I tried following plug in and now RM is recognized by winamp also.. no disadvantages..


Enjoy power of Real Player from within Winamp !!

My GMail account, home of spam..

If you are a regular reader, you might have read few blog posts about my complaint for GMail account's EMail spamming.. Now, i have come up with something exciting :((

So, this is how my GMail account looks like..

I dont leave any mails unread so, Inbox shows zero mails unread but look at the Spam (****)..

This is too much.. I am sure all the spams in whole world would hit my mailbox at least once.

And yes, I remember last time I emptied my spam box 22nd March. If I go to Oldest spam in the box, I see mails dated 22nd march. This also questions GMails statement,

"(messages that have been in Spam more than 30 days will be automatically deleted)"

They are not getting deleted.. not atleast for me !!

Last week you saw Soma's announcement about Visual Studio "Orcas" Beta 1 shipping.  I'm pleased to announce that we have made the stand alone redist of the .NET Framework 3.5 Beta 1 available on MSDN for immediate download here.

This redist is the same version that comes with the Visual Studio release, but can be separately installed from the tools with your application.

Please enjoy the release and send us your feedback!  Now I'm off to Mix'07 for more announcement fun.  I hope to see you there...
