FW: How True!


NEVER share your secrets with ANYONE"
               This can be self-destructive.
NEVER tell your problems to ANYONE"
               20% don't care, and
               80% are glad that you have them !!

               Life is similar to Boxing game..
               Defeat is NOT declared when you fall down;
               It is declared when you refuse to "Get "!

               Somotimes WRONG persons teach RIGHT LESSONS

             Everything is valuable only at 2 times:
               1.    Before getting it; and
        2.    After losing it !!

              Two things bring happiness & success in life:
               1.    The way you MANAGE when you have nothing, and
           2.    The way you BEHAVE when you have everything !

           Two places are MOST VALUABLE in the world:
               1.    The NICEST place is to be in someone's Thoughts, and
      2.    The SAFEST place is to be in someone's Prayers.

               One of the greatest victories you can gain over someone
is to beat him at politeness.

               Keep your face to the Sun,
               And you will not see the shadow!

               A Deaf child says: “For all of you, I am deaf;
               But for me, all of you are dumb"â€�
               Moral: Life differs in each perspective.  Live the way you want to.

            Attitude at its best:
               My BACK is not a VOICE MAIL..
               Kindly say on my FACE.

               Ego is the only requirement to destroy any relationship.
               Be a bigger person; skip the “Eâ€�, and let it “goâ€�..!!

               One good thing about Egoists:
               They don't talk about other people!

Do you know why God didn't give us the gift to read
others' minds?
               So that,
               We could have the chance to “TRUSTâ€�,
               And privilege to be “TRUSTEDâ€�!

               As long as we don't forgive people who have hurt us,
               They occupy a RENT-FREE SPACE IN OUR MIND

We have solutions to all the problems,
               When they are not ours !!!

               I asked God: “If everything is already written in
Destiny, then WHY should I pray?�
               God smiled and said: “I have also written- CONDITIONS APPLY"â€�!!!

               Empty pockets teach millions of things in life"
               But full pockets spoil us in million ways !!!
          Getting angry is punishing yourself for the mistakes of others!

               Trust is like a STICKER.
               Once it is removed, it may stick again,
               But NOT as strong as it holds when you first applied it..!
               Always take care of relations.

               Everything about the future is uncertain,
               But one thing is sure:
               God has already arranged all our tomorrows"
               We just have to TRUST HIM TODAY !!

       NEVER win people with Arguments, rather defeat with your Smile!
               Because people who always wish to Argue with you, cannot bear your Silence !!!

               The search for happiness is one of the main source of unhappiness.

Diplomacy is an art of telling people to go to hell in such a way that
               they tend to ask you for directions..!!

If a drop of water falls on a Lake, its identity is lost;
               If it falls on Lotus leaf, it shines like a Pearl.
               Drop is the same; but the company matters.

Our HOPES should be like Hair & Nails.
               No matter how many times they get cut,
               But they never stop growing.

If you walk the way guided by humans, you will find hopeless end;
               & if you walk the way guided by God, you will find endless hope.

Memories are always special"
               Sometimes we laugh by remembering the days we cried;
               And we cry by remembering the days we laughed"!!!
               That's Life!

           Sea is common for all"
               Some take pearls,
               Some take fishes,
               Some come out just with wet legs!
               World is common to all; what we get, is what we try for!

Life is very complicated"
               When you have standards, people call it ATTITUDE;
               When you are simple, people try to CHEAT you; &
               When you cheat others, people call you SMART!

               To smile without condition,
               To walk without intention,
               To give without reason, &
               To care without expectation,
               Are the beauties of any Relation!

      All communication problems are because
               We don't listen to understand;
               We listen to reply!!!

'There are many languages on earth, Smile speaks them all.' Keep Smiling ☺
Someone who Cares you to Smile.-

A teacher from Primary School asks her students to write an essay about what they would like God to do for them… At the end of the day, while marking the essays, she read one that made her very emotional.


Her husband, who had just walked in, saw her crying and asked her:- ‘What happened?’

She answered- ‘Read this. It is one of my students’ essay.’


‘Oh God, tonight I ask you something very special :

Make me into a television. I want to take its place and live like the TV in my house.

Have my own special place, And have my family around ME.

To be taken seriously when I talk….

I want to be the center of attention and be heard without interruptions or questions.

I want to receive the same special care that the TV receives even when it is not working.

Have the company of my dad when he arrives home from work, even when he is tired.

And I want my mom to want me when she is sad and upset, instead of ignoring me…

And… I want my brothers to fight to be with me…

I want to feel that family just leaves everything aside, every now and then, just to spend some time with me.

And last but not least, ensure that I can make them all happy and entertain them…

Lord I don’t ask you for much… I just want to live like a TV.’


At that moment the husband said :- ‘My God, poor kid. What horrible parents!’


The wife looked up at him and said:- ‘That essay is our son’s !!!’

Fwd: FW: How to avoid Computer Eye Strain

Ever spent more than two consecutive hours looking at a computer screen? Us too. Computers can make us more productive, but the bad news is that too much screen time can also lead to something called computer vision syndrome (CVS). Recognizable as that tired, strained feeling your eyes get after a day in front of a computer screen, CVS affects some 64% to 90% of office workers.
The condition likely doesn't cause permanent eye damage, but it can still affect computer users' comfort. The most common symptoms of CVS include eye strain, redness, irritation or dryness, a burning feeling in the eyes, blurred or double vision after computer use, headaches and neck and shoulder pain.
Several factors increase the likelihood of CVS, including uncorrected vision problems, dry eyes, glares on the screen, poor lighting, poor posture and even the angle of the monitor. Another big factor is incorrect prescriptions: almost 71% of people reporting symptoms of CVS wear eyeglasses or contact lenses.
If computer screens are proving a pain in your eyes, here are some guidelines to help ease symptoms:
Have your eyes checked regularly. If you need a new or changed prescription but don't have it, using a computer will be difficult, period.
Reposition the computer. The screen should be about an arm's length away and positioned directly in front of your face, not off to the side. Position the monitor so its center is 4 to 8 in. below your eyes, which allows the neck to relax while you read and type.
Follow guidelines for good posture. It'll reduce strain on the back, neck and shoulders.
Ensure proper lighting. Try the visor test to determine if current lighting is a problem: look at the monitor and cup your hands over your eyes like a baseball cap. If your eyes immediately feel better, then the lighting should be changed. Experiment with brighter and dimmer lighting, as well as the angle of the lights, to find what's most comfortable for your eyes.
Reduce glare. Installing anti-glare filters on the monitor, adjusting window shades and changing the screen's contrast and brightness can help reduce glare and reflections.
Blink frequently. It should prevent dry eyes. If that doesn't work, consider using lubricating eye drops. Also make sure air vents aren't blowing on your face (this can dry out the eyes), and use a humidifier if the room is super dry.
Take regular work breaks. Stand, stretch or just look off into the distance, away from the computer, every 15 minutes or so to give the eyes a break.
Clean the monitor regularly. Dust can decrease screen sharpness, making the eyes work harder.
Try computer glasses. Unlike everyday eye wear, they're designed specifically for looking at computer screens.
Consider optometric vision therapy. Some computer users have issues with eye focusing or coordination that aren't corrected by glasses or contacts. Vision therapy consists of doctor-prescribed activities designed to improve visual functioning (think of it as a workout for the eyes — though no guarantees as to calorie burn).

[joke] Confidence on Quality

20 executives board an airplane and are told that the flight that they are about to take is the first-ever to feature pilotless technology: It is an uncrewed aircraft.

Each one of the CEOs is then told, privately, that their company's software is running the aircraft's automatic pilot system. 19 of the CEOs promptly leave the aircraft, each offering a different type of excuse.

One CEO alone remains on board the jet, seeming very calm indeed.Asked why he is so confident in this first uncrewed flight, he replies: "If it's the same software that runs my company's IT systems, this plane won't even take off."

Firefox 10


Firefox simplifies add-on updates; no native Android interface--yet

by Seth Rosenblatt January 31, 2012 11:06 AM PST on CNET.COM


Web developer site-building tools are only sexy to developers, but they get a big makeover in today's update to Firefox and that will affect how developers connect to the people who use their sites.


Firefox 10 (download for Windows | Mac | Linux | Android) also dramatically streamlines add-on compatibility, includes a new Full Screen API, and updates WebGL. The Android version, meanwhile, makes some minor improvements as the bulk of development on the mobile version focuses on the native Android interface, currently scheduled for the next stable release.


The biggest change that most Firefox users will see in version 10 is that you'll stop seeing most add-ons marked as incompatible with each new version of Firefox. Around 80 percent of all add-ons will be marked compatible, starting with today's Firefox 10. This follows changes in Firefox 8 that prevented third-party add-ons from installing without permission. The changes in Firefox 10 fix a small but annoying problem when Firefox changed to a rapid-release cycle. Previously, most add-ons would break when Firefox released a major update because there were so many back-end changes, but since March 2011's Firefox 4, it's been a significantly smaller problem.


The new developer tools in Firefox 10 for PCs appear to add some serious heft to Mozilla's already-robust tool set. The new ones include Page Inspector, for checking out a site's structure and layout without leaving the browser, and the introduction of the Eclipse Orion code editor for JavaScript writing in ScratchPad. There's also a Style Inspector, for editing CSS on the fly and without leaving the browser. Don't let the name confuse you, though. It won't offer snarky commentary on your own personal style (or lack thereof.)


The new look for Firefox for Android won't strike many as hugely different, but maybe that's because it looks more like a native Android app.


Also on the code side of things, Firefox 10 has added support for CSS 3D Transforms and for anti-aliasing in the WebGL standard for hardware-accelerated 3D graphics. These updates mean that complex site and Web app animations will render more smoothly in Firefox, and that developers can animate 2D objects into 3D without plug-ins. You can read the full release notes for Firefox 10 here.


Mozilla also has released the enterprise version of Firefox, which will release on a slower cycle so that businesses don't have to worry about their internal tools and security protocols accidentally breaking.


Firefox 10 for Android makes some small tweaks, mostly to support anti-aliasing in WebGL and accelerated layers in OpenGL. This means you ought to see the Web render just a bit faster. Firefox Sync is also easier to set up now. You can read the full release notes for Firefox 10 for Android.


Assuming Mozilla keeps its release schedule, which it has done since moving to the rapid-release cycle last March, Firefox 11 will see the release of the significantly faster native Android interface.
