Had Dinner in a Dhaba

En route to Yelagiri came across a Punjabi Dhaba and we immediately entered the place.

Wonderful ambiance but food was ordinary. Here are some snaps;


First Blog from BlackBerry

This is my first blog which I’m posting from my mobile BlackBerry Curve. I’m very thrilled as I can make live bloging while watching movies, traveling, partying.

Also I want keep a tab on web 3.0 and by this I can understand the requirements and systems and come with more products in future.

Some reservations / things I must explore is Options available in a WYSWYG editors and options to insert images.

Hence you can expect more blogs from me.

Wikipedia & I

Yesterday I was hacking thru Wikipedia to post an article about RBS… What was thought to be challenging and confusing for last couple of years ended up very interesting and I learned the nuances of the system and wiki markup in 4 hours and  created an article for RBS (Don’t know if it will be there anymore as editors have recommended to delete it citing itz a new software)…

I started playing with Wikipedia by 10 PM yesterday and ended by around 2.30 AM today morning… Went home happily and had a nice sleep… Came to office in the morning and checked the article and was taken back seeing the recommendation to delete the article…


You can see a box with red vertical line, which says “It is proposed that this article be deleted”

If you are a Wikipedian or if know any Wikipedian please let me know how to save my hard work… Anyways I’m not giving it up easily I’ve replied to the editors as well as I’m digging into Wikipedia help to know more about their systems and rules…

Ok now I want to explain my key learning’s and how I fell for Wikipedia… After deciding to post an article in Wikipedia I started searching for “Create Article” link & was try “Upload File” under tools to upload my logo… I read lot of wikis and their Help and after enough struggle I found out that a person has to become an Autoconfirmed user to upload things else we have to apply by filling a request form which will be reviewed by editors and based on their judgment things will be approved or rejected… To become a Autoconfirmed user we must have edited/contributed atleast 10 articles…

I started editing articles and this is when I fell in love with Wikipedia and decided I must become a Wikipedian… Initially I added Cogzidel under companies in Madurai, Adambakkam, economy of Chennai, then I went to my area Porur to share information I know and finally I made some edit for my college GLIM

By this time I finished editing 10 articles and became an Autoconfirmed user automatically and posted my article for RBS(also my first article)…

Before concluding let me share some of my pleasing moments…

This is my first Wiki markup code;

| company_name = RBS
| company_logo = [[Image:Rbs-logo.jpg|center|RBS Logo]]
| company_type = [[Private company|Private]]
| owner = [http://www.cogzidel.com Cogzidel Technologies]
| foundation = [[Chennai, Tamil Nadu]]<br> [[2009]]
| location_city = {{flagicon|India}} [[Chennai]]
| location_country = [[India]]
| industry = Internet <br> Service Marketplace <br> Workforce Management <br>Bidding System
| key_people = [http://www.anandnataraj.com S.Anand Nataraj], Founder
| num_employees = 30 (2009)

| homepage = [http://www.cogzidel.com/products?view=productdetails RBS]

And these are my contribution to Wikipedia till now…
