Facebook is a social utility that connects people with friends and others who work, study and live around them. People use Facebook to keep up with friends, upload an unlimited number of photos, share links and videos, and learn more about the people they meet.

I recently started using Facebook, and got addicted to it in just 3 days :P I found most of my old school buddies there :) If you are a Facebook user, you can add me too. I’ll be very happy to meet my readers there.

Diwali Theme for Orkut

orkut-india

I know Diwali was on Nov 9, and this post should have been made earlier this month. But Orkut already had a cool theme for this occasion. That theme was still available to be used a few days back, but it has been removed now.

Many people liked the theme, and wanted it to stay, but Orkut didn’t noticed this and removed it. But no worries folks! A guy called Mr. Nobody has made the same theme as a Greasemonkey script for Firefox users. Now you can enjoy the theme for as long as you want :)

Yahoo! Messenger logo

Ahhh.. It feels so good to be back :) Exams went great, and so did my blog stats. I’m really happy to see that my feed count did not decrease. Thank you all for staying with the feed :)

Since Yahoo! has released Yahoo Messenger 8, they started displaying ads at the bottom of the window. Yahoo! Messenger, itself is crowded with stuff like Radio, plugins etc. and with ads it looks very ugly. It gets really annoying when they display flashy animated ads.

In this post, I’ll tell you how to remove those ads from the bottom of Yahoo! Messenger 8 and 9 Beta.
