  1. Nice post!

    One of the reason for using FF is its versatile nature of add-ons besides being the open-source browser.

    However, I can see that Chrome has increasing number of add-ons on its rep.

    :)

    Keep it heated!

वनेपा मा बाढि

गएराती देखि बिहान अबेर सम्म लगातार पानी परिरह्‍यो । खडेरी लागेको र गर्मी बढेका कारण पनि धेरै पछि परेको पानीले धेरैलाई आड भरोसा दिएको छ । पर्दा फिटिक्कै नपर्ने अनि पर्दा अत्याधिक पर्ने भएका कारण आज केही ठाउँको जनजिवन प्रभावित रहे । काठमाडौँ मा त थुप्रिएको फोहोर अनि त्यस माथि परेको पानी का कारण सडक मा हिँडिनसक्नु भएको छ । त्यस्तै मनोहरा खोला किनारा मा बसोबास गर्ने सुकुम्बासीहरुलाई पनि बाढि ले प्रभावित गरेको छ । यसैगरि भक्तपुर को ठिमी क्षेत्रमा पनि हनुमन्ते खोला मा आएको बाढिका कारण जनजिवन अस्तव्यस्त बनेको छ । बाढि घरभित्र पसेको छ, अनि रोड बाट पनि बाढि बगेको छ । हिम इलेक्ट्रोनिक्स, श्रद्धा नर्सिङ क्याम्पस, सा:ख टोरस्टिल को डिपो, श्यामा श्यामा धाम जलमग्न देखिन्थे । त्यस्तै वनेपा को पश्चिमी छेउ मा रहेको पुण्यमति खोला मा बाढि आएका कारण दिउँसो केही घन्टा सडक अबरुद्ध भएको थियो । खोला बाट बग्नुपर्ने पानी सडक बाट नै बग्न थालेपछि, यातायात आवागमन ठप्प बनेको थियो । पछि बेलुका ४ बजे तिर देखि एक एक ओटा गर्दै पालै पालो गाडिहरु पास गराइएको थियो । बाढि प्रभावित क्षेत्रमा उल्लेख्य मात्रामा प्रहरी परिचालन

हामी मरेपछि हाम्रो फेसबुक प्रोफाइल के हुन्छ ?

फेसबुक आफैँमा व्यापक सञ्जाल । हामी फेसबुक विना त अधुरो नै हुन्छौँ जस्तो लाग्छ हिजोआज । तर यसो सोच्नुहोस् त हामी मरेपछि हाम्रो फेसबुक प्रोफाइल के हुन्छ होला ? फेसबुक का सुरक्षा प्रमुख म्याक्स केली ले २६ अक्टोबर २००९ मा ब्लग मार्फत मृत्यु भएका व्यक्तिहरु को फेसबुक को प्रोफाइललाई सर्च को नतिजा मा नदेखाइने जनाएकाछन् । फेसबुक प्रयोगकर्ता को मृत्यु पछि, उक्त व्यक्ति को प्रोफाइललाई सिल गरिने अनि सर्च को नतिजामा नदेखाउने बताएकाछन् । तर मृत्यु भएको व्यक्ति प्रति सम्मान का शब्द लेख्न या आफ्नो श्रद्धा व्यक्त गर्न उक्त व्यक्ति को प्रोफाइल को वाल भने, आफ्ना आफन्त अनि साथिहरु को लागि सँधै खुल्ला राखिने जनाइएको छ । अक्टोबर २३ मा फेसबुक नयाँ डिजाइनमा आएपछि, फेसबुक ले यस्तो कुरा सार्वजनिक गरेको हो । फेसबुक प्रयोगकर्ताहरु ले फेसबुक को नयाँ ‘सजेसन’ र ‘रिकनेक्ट’ भन्ने सुविधा का कारण समस्या सिर्जना भएको बताउँदै, ब्लग र ट्विटर मा आफ्ना गुनासाहरु लेखेपछि फेसबुक ले, यो नयाँ निति अगाडि ल्याएको हो । फेसबुक ले मृत्यु भइसकेका व्यक्तिहरु को प्रोफाइल देखाउँदै साथि बनाउन ‘सजेसन’ दिन थालेपछि, समस्या सिर्जना भए

नेपाली टाइप गर्ने सजिलो तरिका

मदन पुरस्कार पुस्तकालयले  २००७  २००३-४ ताका नेपाली युनिकोड किबोर्ड लेआउट, रोमनाइज्ड र ट्रेडिसनल सार्वजनिक गर्यो । नेपाली टाइपिङ (ट्रेडिसनल) जान्दै नजान्ने (कहिले नेपाली टाइप नगरेको) मैले, मदन पुरस्कार पुस्तकालयले सार्वजनिक गरेको रोमनाइज्ड नेपाली युनिकोड किबोर्ड लेआउट कम्प्युटरमा राखेर पहिलो पटक कम्प्युटरमा नेपाली भाषामा लेखेँ । यसविचमा कम्प्युटर तथा मोबाइलको लागि धेरै किसिमका नेपाली किबोर्ड लेआउट तथा एप्सहरु आइसकेकाछन्, तर पनि इन्टरनेट प्रयोगकर्ताहरु नेपाली टाइप गर्नुपर्दा अप्ठ्यारो मान्छन् । मलाई धेरैले सोध्ने गरेको प्रश्न भनेको, "फेसबुकमा कसरी नेपाली टाइप गर्ने?" अत: यो ब्लगमा मदन पुरस्कार पुस्तकालय (मपुपु) ले निर्माण गरेको नेपाली युनिकोड किबोर्ड लेआउट बारे चर्चा गर्दैछु। प्रिती, कान्तिपुर लगायतका 'ट्रु टाइप फन्ट' (ttf) प्रयोग गरेर ट्रेडिसनल लेआउटमा नेपाली टाइप गर्ने प्रयोगकर्ताहरुले, नेपाली ट्रेडिसनल युनिकोड किबोर्ड लेआउट राखेर, इन्टरनेटमा सजिलै सँग नेपालीमा लेख्न सक्छन् । भन्नुको मतलब, तपाईलाई पहिले नै नेपाली टाइपिङ आउँछ भने टाइपिङ गर्ने तरिका उही हुन्छ, उही &q
