Today I came across a very good and more  useful blog http://udupipolice.blogspot.com/ which I think is very useful for each and every citizen of Udupi district. Its a great achievement by Udupi District police as well as a tremondous contribution to each and every Udupia'n.


Udupi people can take more benefit from it since it has a regular updates involving all the crime, thefts that are happening in the district through online, so that people could much aware of such situations.

Please do make better use out of it..

Apart from all the basic features it also has an online complaint booking system and a list of contact numbers of all the police stations, higher police officials so that the people can make much more use of it in the disastrous situations. Since I feel it as more useful but the same can be made much better apart from the present one by adding some crime awareness videos so that the younger generation will get better knowledge from it.

Funny Greeting card you like most..

Posted by AVINASH GANIGA | 3:49 AM

A Funny Flash Greeting Card. Watch this and you will be amazed. Wait for it to Load and after Loading, Enter two names and click “Visualizar“, You should see your name in the video. Great work! I got this from a Spanish Website that’s why the Video is Spanish.


If you are new to Adsense, and not earning at least a cent per day, I am very sure that you will be planning to click your own ads.


I’m sure that you will try to go to Internet Cafes or change your IP Adress just to click the ads on your Website, Not knowing that Google is very intellegent enough to track you.

The same thing happened to my friend as he does the same thing ! So be aware when clicking on your adscenes

So, How does google know if you click your own ads even if you are not using your own computer?

Here are the 5 things you should know:

1. Too many Clicks Clicks - too many clicks in your ads can cause your adsense to be disabled.
2. No Referral Pages - if you directly enter your website in the address bar of your browser then click your own ads, thats very obvoius enough. Google knows it.
3. Low Traffic - If you have low traffic, and you got clicks, it can also result to your account to be banned. For example, if you have only 10 visitors a day and you got 5 or more than clicks, thats also very obvious.
4. Not related ad cliks - If you got clicks that are not related to your website or blog post, can be also a result to ban.
5. Duration of Visitor - Google knows how long your visitors stayed in your website. If an individual goes to your site and clicks your ads even he/she stayed only a second in your site, can also be a result to ban.

Just a change in the creativity...

Thanks to Roshan Kolar for his CREATIVE work !

Mr. K Rahupathi Bhat as I have seen is a great politician, personality and a good friend of mine, more than that a good human being and who has done a great contribution to Udupi in all the possible areas that I think no other politician has even dreamt of. He has served and still doing great job for the ultimate development of Udupi.

I have been in touch with him since from a couple of years and got to know much better about him and his great contribution to the society through Kiran Kumar, Bailur. Lots of MLA"s have come and ruled Udupi for years but know one could even improve Udupi as Raghupathi Bhat did as a MLA that also in a very short period of time. I will proudly say it as a tremendous improvement for Udupi people! Just think of Udupi now, compare to the last few years,  the roads got widened, drinking water problems are solved, great improvement in education field, ever made recycled dumping yard, rehabilitation programs and lots more.There is a famous quote 'The Road to Success is always under construction' and Mr Bhat is very much near to the milestone of each and everyone who wants to see a better improved Udupi very soon. Great work done is always be appreciated  and Mr. Bhat has been consistently achieving popularity with his great contribution, work  and achievement he did to make Udupi as the better improved city.

My humble request to all the educated youths to build a better Udupi by just glancing on the achievement, contribution and the great work that our Mr. Bhat has done for the society as well as to make Udupi as the better improved city of coastal region.Hats of Mr Bhat !

I have created and updating all his work and achievements on behalf of him in a blog.

Please do visit http://kraghupathibhat.blogspot.com


Wish you all the very best Mr Bhat .. We Udupi youths are always with you.

Yugaadi (yuga+aadi = cycle+beginning) means beginning of another year for Hindus the world over. We all know, may be simplistically, what a year is - it is the time earth takes to go once around the Sun on a path that is almost circular.

untitled This is celebrated as new year. There is the air of freshness in the nature as this is the spring season. In some parts of Bharat, the tender leaves of neem mixed with jaggery and offered to God as naivedya and then distributed as prasaada. The neem, extremely bitter in taste, and jaggery sweet and delicious, signify the two conflicting aspects of human life - joy and sorrow, success and failure, ecstasy and agony.

This tells us that we should remain calm and balanced during success and failure, joy and sorrow and take everything as the gift of God.

I got so many comments about my previous eSnips download songs hack since it is not so reliable as user has to manually change the last number in the link  to a random number every time for download. Also it was not supporting all kinds of browser windows (only supports FireFox). But I never stopped my search for the best and the easy way to download songs and finally came up with an ultimate way to do the same. I got a download songs link generator from Zuhaib 

Please note that use only flash compatible browsers before trying this !(else you won't see the below flash image)

This link generator works fine for mp3, wma files. When downloading Mp3 files click on the Mp3 radio button, in case of other media file types choose others.

Yes ! hurry up and download your favorite songs !

In one of my earlier post esnips - Download songs 'Hack',  I have mentioned an easy way to download songs from esnips with nsdoc. Actuallly that was an easier approach to download the desired song by just appending 'ns' to the song play link url.


Well, the old method of NSDOC will not work anymore as ESnips have changed their Player and the new player follows a bit different approach to play a file. Here is the new way of downloading.

I have tried this new hack and it only works with Firefox browser and it won't work in any of the other browsers like IE, Safari etc

You can download Google's Firefox web browser here

Well, Hope you all a bit happy now !

Just go to play any of the files in esnips, if for e.g if the song URL that you want to play is


then follow the below steps to download any file including the above:

1. change doc to nsdoc in the URL.

2. Remove the song name completely from URL, in above case this would be


3. Replace the Song name with /ts_id/1205795172796/ns_flash/file1.mp3

4. Now just copy paste the new URL into the address bar and press enter.. and that's it all about. Your download will start automatically

In above case the new URL will be -


Only disadvantage of this method is, the file that downloads will not have the actual filename, rather will have file1.mp3 as it’s filename.

Howz that folks !

Being a regular blogger I frequently used to find new things for my blogger page layout like widgets, hacks etc. Since from the past couple of months I was pretty irritated with the blogger's blog archive widget which my site visitors will use to browse blog contents. But today while playing with my daily mate called Google Search I found superb way to browse the entire contents of my blog in a much easier passion with a single click. I would like to simply call it as 'TOC' (Table of Contents)


All you need to do is a simple update to your blogger HTML and CSS and you are done. Since I found it more useful and hope you can try the same for yours also. You can try the same with my blog by just clicking on 'Easy Go Avirules' link on my right side bar.
NOTE: Please make sure that you have have a complete backup of your blog code, before trying this hack !

Here is how it goes...


Follow the Below Steps:

Backup your template first before start (recommended)

1. Go to edit template and look for the code <b:section> with id=main. This is the section which holds all of your blog posts. Which looks similar to the below

<b:section class='post' id='main' maxwidgets='x' showaddelelment='yes'>

change the above line of code to

<b:section class='main' id='main' maxwidgets='x' showaddelelment='yes'>

Save the template

2. Go to Add Page Elements and add a HTML/Java Script page element above your blog posts and put the below code into it before saving

<div id="toc"></div>

3. Now add another HTML/Java Script page element to either your left or right sidebar and put the below code into it before you save. (don't forget to update your blog URl in the code)

Please download the code from this link

4. At last download the code from the below given link and then add it either to the <b:skin> part of the template directly or the side bar page element used in the above STEP 3

Please download the code from this link

That's it. Go ahead and refresh you blog once.. Really cool na !

Most of the products that Microsoft releases always comes with a evaluation trial period and which wont work after that. Once after the trial period expires the user has to either purchase the full version or just keep quiet. Microsoft has recently released Microsoft Office 2007 with some much enhanced features when compared to the its previous release Office 2003.
The trial version of  Microsoft Office 2007 can be installed by using a 25-character trial product key available from Microsoft while you download the free Office software, and you can use the Microsoft Office 2007 suite with full functionality for 60 days.

Office 2007

This Microsoft Office 2007 suit trial can be installed without the trial product key(which comes by default with the trial version) but will work in reduced functionality. Beside, if you forget the trial product key, or don’t wish to register a Windows Live ID to get the trial key, here’s the trick/hack to activate Office 2007 or in other words just bypass the activation of Office 2007 60 days trial which makes the word “Trial” to disappear from the Office title at the top and suppress activation and trial expiry prompt. To use this hack to crack activation on Office 2007 either you need to install Office 2007 without any serial number or product key. In case if you have installed Office 2007 with a product key or serial number follows the below steps to clean remove Office 2007 product key

STEPS to remove Office 2007 product key:

1. Close all Microsoft Office applications.

2. Run Register Editor by clicking on Start -> Run, and then type “regedit” in the Open box and press Enter key.

3. Navigate to the following registry key:


Note that inside the registry key, there should be another sub key that resembles the following:




4. If there is more than one registry entries or sub keys that reference Microsoft 12.0 registration, open up each sub key, and then identify the product by the ProductName value data until you locate the sub key for the product which you want to remove the existing product license key.

For example:

ProductName=Microsoft Office Professional Plus 2007
ProductName=Microsoft Office Enterprise 2007

5. Once found the correct registry sub key, delete the following values:


6. Close Registry Editor.

And once Microsoft Office 2007 has been installed with no product key, proceed with the following steps:

Here is how it goes...

1. In Windows Explorer, browse 'C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\OFFICE12\Office Setup Controller\Proof.en\'

2. Right click on Proof.XML file, select “Open With…” in the right click menu and open this file with notepad

3. Scroll down to the bottom of the Proof.XML to locate the following lines:

</Feature> <Feature Id=”SetupXmlFiles” Cost=”1248″>
<OptionRef Id=”AlwaysInstalled”/>

Change the AlwaysInsalled to neverInstalled so that the line looks like following:

<OptionRef Id=”neverInstalled”/>

Save the Proof.xml file. In Windows Vista, you may need to take ownership and grant full access permission to yourself before able to modify the file.

You can now launch Microsoft Office 2007 application such as Word, Excel, Powerpoint, Outlook and etc without prompting for activation. But once it is done you won’t be able to AND can’t access any updates or Microsoft Office Online.

AIMP is a Free and Powerful audio player that allows you to listen to your favorite music with an outstanding sound quality!! Its appearance resembles that of the good old classical audio player (Winamp), so you'll get used to it very quickly.


It also has features that let you to be customized with skins. The program includes a 18-band equalizer, a visualization window to display rhythmic visual effects and a playlist editor to organize your audio files.
One cool feature I found is the nice fading effect that makes your list of songs look like an endless music loop and a handy volume normalizing feature avoids drastic volume changes between tracks. Also, the player's main functions can be conveniently controlled by global hotkeys.
Besides playing music, AIMP Classic features three extra utilities which also enable you to record any sound on your computer, convert audio files from one format to another and view or edit tags.

AIMP Classic is based on the well-known audio engine BASS, so it's easy to connect new plug-ins (from the plug-in library included in the program) and expand the player's functionalities.

It's quite straightforward, just select the country from drop-down menu, then enter a city name, and a zip code (optional). ATMLocator will locate nearby ATM machines and list address details for each of them.

CCleaner Logo

Its very often that my PC becomes slower in performance because of the heavy usage of it with the Internet. But every time when I got stuck up  with the situations like this I was suppose to use Disk Cleanup utility that comes by default with the OS.

This default Disk Cleanup utility does everything like deleting old Microsoft temp files, logs, memory dumps and other OS related junk files and even free up lots of space on the system but often leaves a lot of junk behind.
CCleaner is the great program that I use all the time on my computer. Apart from the functions done by the default Disk Cleanup utility, CCleaner also  removes junk files from other popular applications. Also it has the ability to solve various registry issues and a superb functionality to uninstall application in an easy way.

Posted by AVINASH GANIGA | 4:46 AM

“I'm dying of thirst!"  We just might. It sounds so simple. H20. Two parts hydrogen, one part oxygen. But this element, better known as water, is the most essential, next to air, to our survival.


Water is important to the mechanics of the human body. The body cannot work without it, just as a car cannot run without gas and oil.

So some information about the value of H2O in our daily routine to get a better health.

Some Info:

  • Water makes up more than two thirds of the weight of the human body
  • Human brain is made up of 95% water, blood is 82% and lungs 90%
  • Water serves as a lubricant
  • Water forms the base for saliva
  • Water forms the fluids that surround the joints.
  • Water regulates the body temperature, as the cooling and heating is distributed through perspiration.
  • Water helps to alleviate constipation by moving food through the intestinal tract and thereby eliminating waste- the best detox agent.

It doesn't mean that I don't have a milestone to reach... ಅದಕ್ಕಾಗಿ ಏಸ್ಟು ಚಿ೦ತಿಸಿದರೂ ಏನೂ ಫಲವಿಲ್ಲ ಅ೦ತ think ಮಾಡಿ ಆ ಚಿ೦ತೆಯನ್ನು ಬಿಡಬೇಕು.
