Something which I found amusing for my self

Google- paranoid about computer safety

😀

Well , another long vacation ends up here.

Googling, has now become a verb , meaning to search on Google. Google has recently added a new feature in which it also looks for malicious code on the websites while crawling and indexing them, and in case google found one, it will notify it in the search results that “This site may be harm your computer.”  you might have seen this message , but I guess, it appears in the search very rarely , only if the website contents have been compromised .

Well, well, I have been googling for the last 10 minutes and thats what I am getting in every search. (this is just one of them)

This site may harm your computer.Google search result displaying “This site may harm your computer.” for every result.

Something has gone wrong into the indexes datastore at google, or it might be the code interpreting the value for indication of harmful website, totally opposite of what it actually meant. 😀

Do you recognize the building in the photo?? ;)

Well I don’t know what to say , :D, Just now my friend pointed out an error on the Jang‘s news update page. Here is a snapshot,

Can you figure out , what is the source of error here .:D,

see closely , its not that much difficult.

C’mon, C’mon,

well, this is the photo of right corner of FAST karachi campus :D, and it has nothing to do with Removal of 10% Tax on Wheat Import

Sweeeeeet!!

ونڈوز پر اردو کے استعمال کے لیے چند مشورے اور جُگاڑیں

Computer usage in one’s own native language is getting popular these days, and many Softwares now include several languages to overcome the language barrier of the users. It has its own joy of interacting with computers in mother tongue.

Urdu is also one of the languages which is gaining popularity in computer usage. Efforts have been conducted by Pakistani Universities and other professionals to enhance the presence of urdu in general computing activities. These efforts are often supported by Govt. of Pakistan. NUCES Lahore Campus has contributed significantly to the cause with their CRULP ( Center for Research in Urdu Language Processing) initiative.

Following is a list of few good utilities for using urdu on PC from CRULP.

Just to let you know about the complexity of fonts for languages in arabic script is that the actual appearance of character /alphabet is dependent on the context. e.g م is meem, in محمود there are 2 positions for meem, initial and middle,and in علم meem is in final position:)
Now urdu uses alphabets from arabic language, but it follows persian script “Nastaleeq”, which may be a bit difficult for computers, as each new character is connected at a lower level and the whole word follows a slanting path.

So use these utilities, and send your suggestion to the developers, so that they may come up with a better and enhanced version.
