4 things u never knew your cell phone cud

4 things u never knew your cell phone cud
There are a few things that can be done in times of grave emergencies.

Your Mobile Phone can actually be a life saver or an emergency tool for survival. Check out the things that you can do with it.

The Emergency Number worldwide for Mobile is 112. If you find yourself out of the coverage area of your mobile network and there is an Emergency, dial 112 and the mobile will search any existing network to Establish the emergency number for you and interestingly, this number 112 can be dialed even if the keypad is locked. Try it out.

Have you locked your keys in the car?

Does your car have remote keyless entry? This may come in handy someday.

Good reason to own a cell phone:

If you lock your keys in the car and the spare keys are at home, call someone at home on their cell phone from your cell phone. Hold your cell phone about a foot from your car door and have the person at your home press the unlock button, holding it near the mobile phone on their end. Your car will unlock. Saves someone from having to drive your keys to you. Distance is no object. You could be hundreds of miles away, and if you can reach someone who has the other 'remote' for your car, you can unlock the doors (or the trunk).

Note: It works fine! Already tried it and it unlocked the carbover a cell phone!

Hidden Battery Power

Imagine your Cell battery is very low. To activate, press the keys *3370# . Your cell phone will restart with this reserve and the instrument will show a 50% increase in battery. This reserve will get charged when you charge your Cell Phone next time.

How to disable a STOLEN mobile phone?

To check your Mobile phone's serial number, key in the following Digits on your phone: *#06# . A 15-digit code will appear on the screen. This number is unique to your handset. Write it down and keep it somewhere safe.

When your phone get stolen, you can phone your service provider and give them this code. They will then be able to block your handset so even if the thief changes the SIM card, your phone will be totally useless. You probably won't get your phone back, but at least you know that whoever stole it can't use/sell it either. If everybody does this, there would be no point in people stealing Mobile Phones. dance3.gif dance3.gif

Indian scientists to unveil a 5$ laptop!, lappy 4 500Rs

Indian scientists, after working upon the project for three years have come out with $10, which comes out to be Rs. 500 worth of a laptop for a noble cause of National Mission Education. The notebook will be reportedly put on display at Tirupati in the state of Andhra Pradesh in India, on Tuesday, February 3rd, 2009.

“At this stage, the price is working out to be $20 but with mass production it is bound to come down,” R. P. Agarwal, secretary, higher education said, reports Times of India.

And what all will it bring in the given price? Its specs read as 2 GB RAM, Wi-Fi or Ethernet connectivity, expandable memory, 2W of power consumption. Further details are yet to be announced.

The computing device has been developed by Vellore Institute of Technology students and scientists at the Indian Institute of Science, Bangalore and Indian Institute of Technology, Madras.

Apparently, the laptop will be named as ‘Sakshat’ and will bringing in a computer revolution of sorts in the country.

The last known cheapest computing device that was in the news was Nicholas Negroponte’s $100 laptop that was meant for the “One Laptop Per Child” plan. It was developed by Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT). However, the project took a beating due to various reasons one of which has been cited as faults in production.

Here comes the last two...

Then comes milling and shaping - a workshop with similar work to be done as that of the above two.. but with different machines. It costed us dear!! It was basically a team work, each team containing 5 members... and there was this high enthu guy chandrasekhar in our batch ( Lucky me! he happens to be my next roll no) who just keeps on pressing something or the other on any machine until it gets spoiled ! Shaping sir gave certain instructions and precautions clearly mentioning us to handle it carefully as the machine costs around a huge 50k /- or so....
Can you guess what happened after 1 hour ??
OUR LOVELY 50K MACHINE WAS SPOILED BY CHANDU :)! FUCK man!! 50k! and this stupid kept a hammer in the middle of the saddle which was moving and yeah! It got stuck and broke after making a loud TUP sound ! We immediately rushed to the instructor and told him that our machine wasnt functioning. He came to check and immediately discovered the hammer which appeared like a rat in a cat`s mouth :P
Who did this ? was his immediate question and CHANDU was our immediate answer both verbally and non-verbally(yeah, ofcourse.. we pointed at him )
He and his companion tried to repair it in as many ways as they can but finally failed.. thats the power of CHANDU ! :P
It was more like Chandu vs the instructors rather than the instructors vs workshop junta (us) :P
"Ok.. you guys can pack now.. come early for the next class we`ll get it repaired or give you a new machine." - our-tried-in-vain-to-repair-chandus-damage instructor said.
poor machine
So we packed thinking that we would get the worst possible grade here....... CREDITS TO CHANDU :P
Last and the least (:P) was the GEAR SHOP.. Nothing interesting happened here(except for an incident which I already mentioned in my previous posts) as we already created a huge loss to WORKSHOPS.It was all in the hands of chandu.. he tried to try his hands on that gear-making machine but it was too good to resist even chandrasekhar`s hands! wow!!

Fitting workshop part II

Having filed the job with utmost care, i went to show him my job with a feeling of self-satisfaction and pride! He examined every nook and corner of it and just showed another point from where sunlight was coming out..
DAMN IT!! Sir none in the world can file this bloody damn fucking thing to perfection!! - I wanted to teach him....
He just kept showing that point..
Again he would show the same point..
AARGH!! whats wrong with that point ?? and whats wrong with u?? Atleast scold me sir..
or just throw me away along with my job.. but please put some damn expression on your face.. please!!!!
But then.. guess what? He just kept there standing .. showing the same point... which literally mean that I should repeat the entire fucking filing job ! :(
For your kind info, he is not dumb... He is perfectly alright..:P
After much effort and two more tasks, I finally showed my end product to the main fitting instructor. He examined it and said- "all are under dimension"
WHAT THE FUCK?? He said as if all the money I used to buy his land was undervalued :P
"SIR have some sympathy on me. I`m already fucked up to get this crap thing into this shape.. just throw me some damn grade and get rid of me sir."

Fitting WORKSHOP - Part 1

wiping away the memories of turning, I entered the Fitting workshop..
There were 2 instructors for fitting ( ofcourse, for every workshop ). One instructor scared us away with his lecture on the very first day. I dare not mention any names here ! He imposed several strict rules to be followed. Both of them looked very different but they shared a common quality - THEY DIDNT HAVE ANY EXPRESSION ON THEIR FACE ! Both of them- I say . I never saw anyone of them laughing,crying(Ofcourse why would they cry? I should cry ), angry,emotional,...... you can include any expression in this list!
He first explained various tools and then our work. We should make 2 cuts in 2 pieces and 'fit' them together & hence the name fitting ! One was the male cut and the other was female cut ( Sorry! It is not my comparision. It IS actually called like that ).
There were different cuts like the UV cut, T cut, etc.. We were given some special cut to work upon. One piece should be made into a rectangle with a triangle over it. The other has to be made into a rectangle with a triangle cut inside it so that the latter fits into the former. That is FITTING. Well, you can easily guess by now that the former was the male cut and the latter - female cut.
Firstly, we need to make the rectangle into perfect 90 degree piece. That has to be done by filing - the most fucking part of fitting. The right angle can be checked by some crap tool. When I get satisfied with my work and show it to the second instructor- HE JUST PUT MY PIECE ON THE TWO ARMS OF THE MEASURING TOOL and showed a tiny hole through which light was passing- that meant it`s still not a perfect 90 - which in turn implied that I should FUCK OFF from there and file it again :(
MAN!! The file , I say, is the worst tool to handle. It never cuts to the desired length ! I again kept the workpiece in the Bench Vice and started the to 7 fro motion of the file. I had a wierd thought of replacing the workpiece with my intermmediate VP and file him from top to bottom :) :P

To be continued...


I said I`ll write about my workshops experience right? well, here it goes...
My first workshop was TURNING. First, let me say about my workshop batch.. it`s named E2 containing all mechanical engineers(-if we successfully complete Btech :P) from roll no.21 to 40 , 21 being mine and 40 being my roommate`s !! & To mention, the boy:girl ratio is 39:1 !!! The first class at turning workshop had nothing to do with us.. they just explained something about the lathe machine on which we were going to work(that LATHE is the father of all machines) and showed us a video of stuff that we would be using in that workshop and let us go... That video was screened in an AC hall and moreover it was like a cartoon rather than a science video..where we just had a nice sleep.... !!
The second day- everyone was given a workpiece and a lathe machine to work upon. They gave us an assignment sheet which had all the crap details of what we were supposed to do with that junk piece... While I was trying to fix the required parts, the workshop incharge tapped my shoulder.. HUH ! Am i fixing it wrong? I thought but no-
He introduced me another guy whose roll no was 108 and he was supposed to work with us.. i.e. he was introduced into our E2 batch.. and since there was no lathe machine left, he joined with me ( as I am the starting member of E2 !)
"Huh! thank god - I got a partner" - I thought.
On the last day of turning workshop -
We were supposed to churnout the workpiece in the required shape. Our job (- nothing but the workpiece) was being turned by the lathe machine when we suddenly felt something wrong.. It was not turning as it used to before. We switched off the lathe and touched the workpiece. DAMN!!! IT BADLY BURNT MY FINGER !!!
It was so hot that one could make an omlet out of an egg using it !
We immediately removed the job and guess what ?? The drillbit went inside the piece and it was BROKEN !!!
OH MY GOD!! What to do now?? We immediately called up the incharge and showed him our great job ! His reaction was completely different from what I had expected.
I thought he would fix me to another lathe and do turning operation on me ! :P
I thought he would make both of us do the job again 100 times !
I even thought he would give us a CUP$ in it and ask us to repeat the course....
But this is what happened-
He signalled to the other instructor immediately after seeing the job..
Then we almost confirmed that we would be thrown out as the other guy was carrying a pen and paper- it wasnt an ordinary sheet - it was our WORKSHOP PERFORMANCE SHEET !!
But god came to our rescue :) - He brought a coolant and spread it across the machine and also our job.. they tried to remove the drill bit tip from the job using typical workshop techniques but in vain.
Finally, they gave up. They asked us to take a new workpiece and do the job again !!!!:( It was at that time when everyone almost finished their jobs and WE ARE GOING TO START AT THAT POINT !! FUCK!!!!!!
We just made two operations and it was not even 50% complete and the time was up.
We submitted the worst job ever done in the history of turning workshop @ IITM and left the place - DAMN IT ! First workshop itself was a mess :(

If Lathe is the father of all machines, Fitting is the father (or mother or whatever ) of all workshops

Can I kick a football ??

I was walking alone in the 6th wing corridor ( why 6th wing?? I`m an 8th wingie right? - I dont know the reason !!! ) .. Some arbit typical stud footer player cum Gangaster (ob :P) shouted from the quadrangle, pointing at me , "LOOK AT HIM !! "
"he?? he can`t even kick a cricket ball ! " this came from some other friend of the former.
"ya! rat !"
I was so frustrated by those comments. I immediately rushed to my room, wore a sleeveless t-shirt and shorts, put on my sports shoes and reached the football in the quadrangle. Everyone looked at me with a big surprise as if some lady accidentally ran into a gents toilet.(YAAAK! worst comparison na? screw it)
I put all my strength into my foot and kicked the ball lying in front of me such that it went soooooo high... into the skies ... and DISAPPEARED !
WOOOOOW everyone around me applaused on seeing such an awesome feat by an assumed rat
Immediately after this , I felt someone kicking my ass in the same way I had kicked the football a couple of moments ago.It was none other than my dear friend, Pratheesh !
"Macha! Wake up da.. It`s 7:30 now & we`ve to attend CS110 at 8.. I think you know that ? "
"ya ya .. Oh then didnt I really kink the football?"
"What?? what are you talking da? & I know you can`t even kick a cricket ball"
"Hey! It`s the same dialogue I heard"
"now just stop this shit and get ready.. take a bath or just wash your face, skip tiffine and lets walk fast to CRC or else our attendance would be messed up"
Now, he seemed like a captain of the indian cricket team leading from the front but his team had only 2 members - himself & me-who cant even kick a cricket ball :P

I did as ordered by my captain.... and took one of the last benches in CRC103 which I felt like the benches were singing "waiting for you..."

The great outcome

I was in a deep sleep with a thick blanket covering from head to toe protecting me from the cold romantic hyderabad climate, on my bed in my house...
I felt some one tapping me from about an hour !
"whhhaattt?? " I dragged the word to a time length of about 8 seconds...
"You`ve been sleeping for 10 hrs.. I think you need to wake up now" - My brother said..and continued,"mom is calling for dinner"
I listened all this with great patience and then-COVERED THE BLANKET AGAIN AND BACK TO MY PREVIOUS POSITION !!
this time my mother took her turn to wake me up..
"What do you do in iit at this time??" She asked - A genuine doubt for a typical parent.
"The same thing what I am doing now- except that I don`t use a blanket there- That is CHENNAI "
That informally implies that I just wasted my diwali vacations sleeping and eating...
but finally it caused a major change in my later iit life - guess what??
I went back to IIT with a LAPTOP !!!
1 GB ram, 160 GB HD, a 256 mb intel graphics card,core2duo processor @ 1.5 GHz each..
That was cool at that time because there were very few lappys in our hostel and hardly any in our wing.. So my laptop was the king of the wing!!
But now.. everyone has bought a stud max$ laptop with atleast 2 GB ram, 250 GB HD, nvidia geforce 8 or 9 series graphic card, core2duo processor each @ 2.66 GHz etc.,. :o
