Dispelled it as a joke, blinked out every sms, laughed at my sisters’ insanity, until finally today, I saw Veena’s Ramadan promo on a local channel myself.
Main hoon Veena Malik. Main pooray Ramadan main karoon gi aapke saath, apnay aur aapke gunaahoon ka astaghfar (subdued tone)
Its resonance-more than that of a bomb shell, a shock worse than seeing a zombie walking on streets. Enough of the drama I know. But seriously? I understand, Veena may have a lot to apologize, but a few days back she was screaming out loud that she has done nothing she has an aota of regret on. Then that subdued tone, wet with regret…what was that all about?
I don’t want to go on about Veena’s alleged immorality, about her FHM nude shoot, looking at which she remarks, ‘look at it, isn’t it just beautiful?’, what I’m concerned with is the moral state of us as a nation. I’m sure, with Veena Malik doing a Ramadan transmission; the channel is going to be a hit! What more can a local channel need for ratings, some celebrity that stands as a sheer contrast to a religious idea, and people will be glued to the screen to either enjoy the absolute hilarity, or something I really cant understand.
Thank God, Mallika Sherawat hasn’t been seeing wrapping a chadar around pleading Lord to purge her sins in Ramadan transmission, or isn’t giving an interview on ‘Decency in Films’. But if it’s done, it sure will be the biggest selling point of the show.
I’m amazed. Truly amazed. Why is that each time a person is passed for a hypocrite, a fraud, next day he’s the one Hero people would be wooing for. A few days back, I wrote a blog that presented one side of the coin, while the other obvious was already much discussed on all forums, we faced a lot of criticism from left, right and center. If you had looked at the comments, you must have noticed the open dislike for the person in question, but wait a second, glance over the rating charts, and the truth out loud would be that Oh this man is an unimaginably popular television persona!
Isn’t it true that television or in general media makes people see what they want to see, and if rating for Veena Malik’s program go ramping up the hill, why not her then? My question is, why curse people who you label as ‘bad guys’ and yet chose to watch them. And if you like to watch them, why curse them then?. If you find Maya Khan or Veena Malik attractive enough to hook to the screens for, own your choice and kindly don’t curse the poor souls. It’s about time we stop being hypocrites.

The Pakistani rupee was put into circulation in Pakistan after the partition of British India in 1947. Initially, Pakistan used Indian coins and notes simply overstamped with "Pakistan". New coins and banknotes were issued in 1948. Like the Indian rupee, it was originally divided into 16 annas (آن), each of 4 pice (پيس) or 12 pie (پاى). The currency was decimalised on 1 January 1961, with the rupee subdivided into 100 pice, renamed (in English) paise (singular paisa) later the same year. However, coins denominated in paise have not been issued since 1994.
In 1947, provisional issues of banknotes were made, consisting of Government of India and Reserve Bank of India notes for 1, 2, 5, 10 and 100 rupees overprinted with the text "Government of Pakistan" in English and Urdu. Regular government issues commenced in 1948 in denominations of 1, 5, 10 and 100 rupees. The government continued to issue 1 rupee notes until the 1980s but other note issuing was taken over by the State Bank in 1953, when 2, 5, 10 and 100 rupees notes were issued. Only a few 2 rupees notes were issued. 50 rupees notes were added in 1957, with 2 rupees notes reintroduced in 1985. In 1986, 500 rupees notes were introduced, followed by 1000 rupees the next year. 2 and 5 rupees notes were replaced by coins in 1998 and 2002. 20 rupee notes were added in 2005, followed by 5000 rupees in 2006.
All banknotes other than the 1 and 2 rupees feature a portrait of Muhammad Ali Jinnah on the obverse along with writing in Urdu. The reverses of the banknotes vary in design and have English text. The only Urdu text found on the reverse is the Urdu translation of the Prophetic Hadith, "Seeking honest livelihood is worship of God." which is حصول رزق حلال عبادت ہے (Hasool-e-Rizq-e-Halal Ibaadat hai).
The banknotes vary in size and colour, with larger denominations being longer than smaller ones. All contain multiple colours. However, each denomination does have one colour which predominates. All banknotes feature a watermark for security purposes. On the larger denomination notes, the watermark is a picture of Jinnah, while on smaller notes, it is a crescent and star. Different types of security threads are also present in each banknote.

Good old Solitaire
A puzzle game where you have to connect dots of the same color on a grid. The basic 5×5 grid levels get repetitive fairly fast. You can switch larger grids instead which makes the game somewhat more challenging and fun to play.
Cut The Rope
The objective of the game is to maneuver candy into the mouth of Om Nom. The candy is connected to ropes which need to be cut in the right order to collect all the stars in the level and feed Om Nom. The game is best played with a mouse or touch screen, and not with a laptop’s touchpad.
A flipsaw puzzle game. Can be played with both the mouse or on a touch screen.
In this puzzle game, you have to fill the letters of the so called hive word into cells on the screen. The hive has seven “flowers” which all need to be filled with the seven letters of the hive word. The game offers clues that help you place the letters correctly on the screen.
Jazz Trump’s Journey
A jump and run, and music adventure mix with nice ideas and great presentation.
A set of games including Memo and a painting game. Looks to be suitable for smaller children as well.
An arcade style game where you control your space ship with a stick on the right side. It is again best placed on touch devices, as it is rather difficulty to control with the mouse or a touchpad.
Pirates Love Daisies
A pirate themed Tower Defense game.
A puzzle game that is best played on touch screens.
A train game. Nowhere near as complex as Sid Meier’s Railroad Tycoon but still a fun game. It comes with a puzzles mode in which you have to connect cities of the same color with each other, and single player mode that you can start playing after completing the first five puzzles that act as an introduction.
It is a massively multiplayer word finding game where you compete against everyone else in a quest to become the champion. Best played with a touch screen. It is playable with the mouse as well.

First off, WinFS was a technology designed as a relational file system for the storage of structured and unstructured data. After several years of hype, it was essentially quietly killed in 2006.
The main factors for its death laid around the fact that it didn't offer a significantly better experience than what we already had with NTFS.
So fast forwarding to today, with NTFS as the dominate file system (though many legacy devices still use FAT-32), what makes ReFS worth the change?
First off, Windows 8 is all about change with its touch-centric design, its use of the hibernate kernel for speeding up start-ups and shut-downs, and the introduction of ARM processor support. So now seems like the perfect time to make yet a big change on the file system front as well.
Microsoft is working hard to overcome past perceptions that its Oses are easily corrupted and overly unstable when compared to options like Linux and Mac OS. Despite that fact this has been somewhat true, the folks at Redmond still find it important to lay these security and stability concerns to rest.
So ReFS standards for “resilient” file system, and resilient it is. The main purpose that designers kept in mind with this format is that it is capable of keeping data safe and, hopefully, free of potential corruptibility.
There are several ways it attempts to accomplish this goal, such as keeping metadata integrity with checksums, verifying and auto-correcting data to limit data corruption, isolating data corruption, keeping user data integrity with integrity streams, and keeping an entire volume intact, online, and accessible.
