I found that password! Password Break-ins can be avoided.

I’ve had the thousandth aha moment. I found someone’s password. Again! Having seen this cockiness of “it can’t happen to me” for such a long time; Time and again proves just one of the two things – Either people believe they are invincible and do not really care or they just do not know how to generate strong random passwords that can be easily remembered.

I’d give my secret recipe for generating passwords; Passwords that can be written in full public view, will never need to be written down, can be remembered for as long as you’re alive (and mentally sound), cannot be broken by your friends or relatives and passwords that are unique to every place you need them. For the record, my Bank of the West password is “Amazing Amazing West of 2005!” Go figure!

1102 Views | 4 Comments A very happy New Year 2010 to you.

Here’s wishing you a very Happy New Year. And a very happy new decade too!

I’ve been making resolutions off and on since childhood. And breaking them too. At some point I lost interest in them. At another, I tested my will-power to its extremes. Of course, a resolution was always meant for just that one day.  This year’s resolutions;

Installing Windows 7 on iMAC 27

The new iMac with its 27” LED display and core i7 goodness, slim profile and drop dead gorgeous looks lacks just one thing. It doesn’t run Windows 7 out of the box. Snow Leopard and the lackluster  Apple supplied software notwithstanding, I was still drooling at how big a code window I could get if I fired  up Visual Studio 2010 in this baby. Here’s a step by step guide to matching the most beautiful (if not the best) hardware with the most useful OS of all times – Installing Windows 7 on iMAC 27” Core i5/i7.

Life comes at you fast! Really fast

Ever pondered the meaning of life while hurtling down at 138 miles per hour? Meaning or Life? Back when I started at Yahoo, I was one of the young ones, labeled “firebrand Yahoo,” “trouble-monger,” “how-did-he-do-that-guy” and the likes. Then came the likes of Bipin, Nandu Yathin and others who so unceremoniously stripped me off my “angry-young-man” trophies. Its been 9 years since then? Whoa!


I do not feel like going to work. No, I’m just not going to show up for work today. Maybe not tomorrow as well. You know why? Its not about me, its all about You!

The Bay Area DNN User Group

Thanks to Chris Hammond who moved to Bay Area recently we now have a budding DotNetNuke User Group community in our very own backyard – the Silicon Valley. With a guest visit from Joe Brinkman, co-founder of DNN Corp, lots of pizzas and sodas in between some awesome presentations on jQuery (by Joe) and new DNN features (by Chris), how was I supposed to keep away from clicking a few pictures?

Baydug. An experimental perspective on DNN Module development

DNN is a great framework that gives you a very capable base application right out of the box and a jumpstart with the free modules from the day you install it.

That is only half the story. DNN Module development is so easy one can go from “a DNN user” to a “DNN developer” in less than a few minutes. Want to know how ? Meet me at the next Baydug conference.
