J. J. Abrams Star Trek (2009) – Review, A Great Start for Many More to Come

MV5BMTY2NTg3OTU0MF5BMl5BanBnXkFtZTcwMjc0NTM1Mg@@._V1._SX400_SY400_.jpgI am a big Trek fan. The fact that I love astronomy, makes Star Trek almost a vague dream come true for me in many ways. From the very early days of Gene Roddenberry’s Star Trek when James T. Kirk used to be my hero, Star Trek got me interested in Stars and Galaxies and from that time on my love for Astronomy and Star Trek just grew on over time.

Frankly, my expectation was not very high from this new Star Trek movie. I was not quite sure if its going to be anything like the Star Trek I used to watch in the old days of Kirk and Picard. My low expectation basically came from the movie trailer, which sort of represented a very i-Robot’ish kind of futuristic look for the movie, especially the flying bike and the cop sort of completely misrepresented the movie and secondly the new director J. J. Abrams, who admittedly was not a big fan of Star Trek, kind of made me wonder which direction is he going to take this now?

But with all assumptions kept aside, I am very glad to say that this new Star Trek movie was simply amazing!! Continue reading

My 98 Dodge Caravan, recently I had to take it’s battery out for some maintenance and after putting the battery back in when I started the car, weirdly enough, all my dashboards lights started flashing (the lights on the wiper and climate control buttons).

Adamo By Dell

Dell is releasing a new very slick and sexy Laptop. They named it Adamo.

It looks really cool and I think it is definitely something I might “fall in love” with as they have done an excellent job with the ads. Well done!!

YouTube Adamo By Dell

It resembles a lot to the new Macbook though, doesn’t it? So, it’s not a very new concept as far as the design is concern but it’s good that we will now have a very stylish and elegant looking Laptop added to the “PC” family too.

Given, the specs are as comprehensive as it’s look, I would surely be very interested to get my hands on to one of these Adamo’s.

Enabling Line Break “<br>” in WordPress

Finally!! A permanent solution in order to prevent WordPress from filtering line breaks "<br>" from a post.

In spite of trying various methods such as putting line breaks "<br>" inside "<code>" tag and many other such HTML tricks (many of which can be easily found at WordPress) just to be able to put multiple intentional line breaks in a post, wordpress would eventually manage to filter those line breaks. Even if the tricks were successfully applied, when it came to re-editing a post, all efforts would go to vain when TinyMCE initiates its own filtering process. Continue reading

Guide to Running Apache on Windows or Ubuntu

After using IIS for almost 4 years now, I have decided to give up on IIS for so many of its limitations.

Among one of those limitations was the inability to use “pretty permalink” or the mod-rewrite feature which comes built in with Apache. Although IIS 7 seems to have a plan to include similar sort of functionality but waiting for that to come and who knows how many more problems along with it, is just not worth waiting for. Its just more easier to get Apache running on your machine and get everything that IIS gives and much more. Continue reading
