Javadoc search plugin

For those of you who use firefox to refer the javadoc, the following search plugin will make a handy way to locate the javadoc. Just type the class name/method name in the firefox search bar and bingo !!

It is a neat hack which uses Google I’m feeling lucky function

So just copy the xml in yours <Firefox Install Dir>/searchplugins and restart the firefox.
Same plugin should also work for Internet explorer

The icon image I have taken from the .

I cannot believe that we live in a country where such universities openly advertise with full page ads in leading newspapers.

Google Chrome OS

Some days back Google announced its much rumoured operating system under Chrome Project. This new development creates few new possibilities.

1.        Is Google really serious to take Microsoft by its horn ?? I don’t think so. Just like MSN Search/Live/Bing can not compete with google search.Google OS will always be  a minion in comparison to Windows.
2.        Will Chrome OS actually be a browser shell for an instant-on pre-boot environment ?? As the reports says this OS is natural extension of Chrome Browser project it si quite possible.Google is investing loads of money in Cloud Computing infrastructure under project  “Google App Engine”. This will enable developers to deploy there webapps on google infrastructure and end users can directly access these apps through browser. This reminds me famous presentation presentation of klaus “Knoppix” knopper, Future of computing LinuxAsia2006
3.        If so, has Google gone insane ?? does not all this my data and apps on Google server sounds a bit scary.  
4.        If not , will it be a full-fledge Linux distribution like the mythical Goobuntu Google purportedly uses internally ?? Is it a reasonable path to take  ?? I mean there are already hundreds of linux variants available . Will it not be better to put your weight  behind a well establised community project.
5.        How Adobe fits in this project ?? Adobe is the only strategic partner company in this project which does softwares. Obviously for flash platform but uptill now google was encouraging developers to embrace HTML5 ,XHTML standards and Ajax for RIA applications (GWT Project). So why this sudden flash love. Is it a short term goal as in instant future flash is big technology. Or google has long terms goals with flash/flex/AIR ??

i hope this new project will trigger a shake-up in operating system dynamics and how applications are delivered to the end-users.Lets wait and watch what happens next

Slow down you crazy child

Slow down you crazy child
You're so ambitious for a juvenile
But then if you're so smart tell me why
Are you still so afraid?
Where's the fire, what's the hurry about?
You better cool it off before you burn it out
You got so much to do and only
So many hours in a day

But you know that when the truth is told
That you can get what you want
Or you can just get old
You're gonna kick off before you even get halfway through
When will you realize...Vienna waits for you

Slow down you're doing fine
You can't be everything you want to be
Before your time
Although it's so romantic on the borderline tonight (tonight)
Too bad but it's the life you lead
You're so ahead of yourself
That you forgot what you need
Though you can see when you're wrong
You know you can't always see when you're right(you're right)

You got your passion you got your pride
But don't you know that only fools are satisfied?
Dream on but don't imagine they'll all come true
When will you realize
Vienna waits for you

Slow down you crazy child
Take the phone off the hook and disappear for a while
It's alright you can afford to lose a day or two
When will you realize...
Vienna waits for you.

And you know that when the truth is told
That you can get what you want
Or you can just get old
You're gonna kick off before you even get halfway through
Why don't you realize...Vienna waits for you
When will you realize...Vienna waits for you

This song keeps haunting me day and night. I wish someone had told me earlier. I learnt my lesson the hard way. Actually, i am learning my lesson the hard way. I have quite forgotten that i cant be everything i want to be before my time. I am so caught up with it, i am so ahead of myself now, that i have forgotten what i need. I am making an effort now though.
Now, whenever i feel that i have so much to do and only so little time i tell myself to slow down.But then, the idiot that i am, I don't listen to myself all the time either. But then i atleast know that Life is waiting for me. Patiently, hoping that i will atleast learn the truth, the hard way.
