being accepted at more and more places and growing like anything. (slashdot article) . Meanwhile Steve Ballmer recently said that Linux is violating M$'s IPs. There is no wonder , if it sues Linux in coming months for IP violation. Recently read an article, how Microsoft's stand changes towards Linux in last four years (sorry i lost the link). M$ four years back said, Linux is not at all a threat and only piracy is threat to Microsoft. Today it is spending millions to generate fake (I think so) reports in the name of Get the facts. Slowly Linux is raising , with support from everyone except M$....

I recently tried Riya . Its just another photo organising tool with great new features. It can recognize your faces in the photograph. It works , by this way. First you upload all the photographs you have. Then it will start will identfiy faces and ask you who is that . Train it by saying he is tom , he is jerry etc.. Once you train it to good extend, it will start to identify tom and jerry itself. Then you can search for all photographs of Tom or Jerry or Both.
Sometimes it recognize faces in a good way, for example it recognized even a statue's face in the photograph. Another time, it recognized a heroine's face on the wallposter (In a photograph, which is taken on a road).
It works well , But it needs lot of improvements. People will like it, if it is running on local machine (now , riya is uploading all photographs to their website and then processing it). Algorithms need to be improved. Sometimes it is missing some faces, which can be very easily detected. If you are trying Riya , send a friend request to palam dot c at gmail doot coom, after that you search my photographs also.
Finally installed mediawiki alone for documentation purpose. Wikimedia is simple and fits well for that category. I installed WAMP (windows + Apache + Mysql + PHP ) also to make mediawiki to run. WAMP is a great package for newbies, I installed all of them in single click.
Mediawiki helps a lot of internal documentation, its a must for all businesses and corporates.

The Summer of 2006 started. I just realised that when i see Mangoes on
near by shop. School boys started to play on ground opposite to my
house, almost for whole day.Temperature is also rising and local
newspaper is saying that no water for daily distribution. Mysore is
very hotter than Bangalore. But I might have missed the real summer
in Bangalore, because of air conditioned offices. Power cuts are also
started and its a pain for a small tech company running without any
backup options. I never thought power cuts will create a problem. We
should look for some backup option soon.
