Kannada Kasthuri

Kannada Kasthuri the First Online 24/7 Radio. It plays some great songs - a good mix of old and new film songs. It also has a very active forum. I was surprised to find so many interested kannadigas on internet. The site also provides an option for requesting songs to be played on the radio. We can also find kannada music reviews like "Akash - not a typical Appu's album", "Valmiki - Nothin Special Guru!",... Lots of Kanglish used by the visitors of the site. Masth aagidhe guru.

Ultra cool extensions for firefox

Platypus and GreaseMonkey are some of the coolest extensions for firefox that i have used. Any web page can be edited using Platypus. If you want to take a print out of a web page and if it has lots of useless information like Ads etc. then the unwanted portions can be cut using the smart cut feature present in Platypus. If you visit a web page and it is too gaudy then you can selectively make it black and white and view it peacefully. There are host of other tools in platypus to tweak the web pages. After modifying the web page it can be saved as a greasemonkey script, so that your subsequent visits to the page will be customised. There are numerous other extensions for firefox. Need be, i will try out all those plugins.

ShouldExist - Good ideas, free for all!

ShouldExist stands by its tag line - "Good ideas, free for all". Its a place where people pitch in their ideas on variety of things. These ideas are released into the public domain and are intended to make the world a better place to live in. In this present world of patents and ugly plagarism beating its trumphet all over the globe, I was pleasantly surprised to stumble upon the site "ShouldExist", in which people freely publish their ideas for the betterment of the world. If you are a person looking to implement an idea but dont have one, or if you are one with lots of ideas but dont have time or other resources to make them work, then "ShouldExist" is the right place for you. If you are thinking not many people will be ready to share their ideas openly with others then you are wrong. "ShouldExist" has reinforced my belief that "The future of human beings will be driven by their community."
