بتانے والی نے کچھ یوں بتایا:
”میں گاڑی سے اتر کر گھر کی طرف جا رہی تھی کہ ایک بھکارن جس کے ساتھ ایک چھوٹی سی بچی بھی تھی اور حالت سے ہی پتا چل رہا تھا کہ مستحق نہیں، نے سوال کیا۔ میں ان سنی کر کے جاتی رہی لیکن اس عورت کے ساتھ جو بچی تھی وہ میرے ساتھ ساتھ چلنے لگی اور لگاتار آٹو ریوائنڈ کیسٹ لگا کر مانگتی رہی۔ باجی اللہ کے نام پہ دے دو، فطرانہ دے دو اور پتا نی کیا کیا لیکن میں نے دھیان نہیں دیا اور اسکو اتنا اگنور کیا کہ اسکی طرف دوبارہ دیکھا تک نہیں۔ میں گھر کا دروازہ کھول کر اندر داخل ہو ئی تو پیچھے سے بچی کی آواز آئی ’اے کنجری پیسے تو دے دے‘ اور بے اختیار میری ہنسی نکل گئی“۔
یہ سن کر میں نے پوچھا کہ پھر پیسے دئیے؟ جواب ملا “پہلے نہیں دیے تو اس بات کے بعد کیسے ممکن تھا؟“
دوبارہ دیکھ تو لیا ہی ہو گا؟
نہیں بالکل بھی نہیں لیکن ہنسی تھی کہ رکنے کا نام نہیں لے رہی تھی۔
تو جی کچھ ایسا ہی حال ہے ہمارے حکمرانوں اور عالمی برادری کا۔ ملاحظہ ہو حالات و واقعات اور پھر اس کے بعد بیانات۔ سیلاب آیا تو صدر صاحب غیر ملکی دورے پر باہر۔ وزیر اعظم صاحب مصروف۔ بے نظیر پارٹ ٹو نامی ماڈل صاحبہ ہفتے بعد سیلابی بیک گراؤنڈ کے ساتھ تصویر بنوا کر اخباروں میں چھپوا دیتی ہیں اور وزیر اعظم صاحب دو ہفتے بعد ہیلی کاپٹری معائنہ کر کے اربوں ڈالر نقصان کا تخمینہ لگاتے ہیں اور کشکول لے کر کھڑے ہو جاتے ہیں۔ پھر ساری کابینہ اور حکمران ”اللہ کے نام پہ دے دے بابا“ شروع ہو جاتے ہیں۔
صدر صاحب بار بار کہتے ہیں عالمی برادری مدد کرے میں وعدہ کرتا ہوں ایک ایک پیسہ متاثرین پر خرچ ہو گا (لُک ایٹ دا گارنٹی)۔ ڈونرز کانفرنس سے خطاب کرتے ہوئے اصل صدر اور وزیر اعظم صاحب کہتے ہیں دنیا ہمارا پچاس ارب ڈالر قرضہ معاف کرے۔ وزیر اعظم صاحب کا بیان آتا ہے کہ عالمی برادری این جی اوز کو امداد دے رہی ہے پھر ان فنڈز کے خرچ کا سوال حکومت سے نہ کیا جائے۔ پھر کہتے ہیں این جی اوز آدھے فنڈز تنخواہوں کی مد میں خرچ کر رہی ہیں یہ متاثرین کی مدد کیا کریں گے؟ ابھی بیان آئے چار دن ہی ہوئے تھے کہ وکی صاحب کا پیمپر لیک کر گیا لیکن غالب گمان یہی ہے کہ اب اسی پیمپر کے لیکس سے پھیلنے والے گند کو بنیاد بنا کر تھوڑے دن میں بیان آنے شروع ہو جائیں گے ”اے کنجری پیسے تو دے دے“ اور یہ تو وہ کنجری ہے جو پہلے سے ہی ہم پر بے اختیار ہنس رہی ہے

 

You will need a special tool to copy the Installation files and making the USB-stick/SD card bootable – usb_multiboot_10.zip

 

  1. Unpack to any folder. THE PATH TO YOUR FOLDER MUST BE SIMPLE AND WITHOUT SPACES! (ex. c:\usb_multiboot_10)

  2. Insert USBstick / SD card.

    1. ALL DATA ON YOUR STICK WILL BE ERASED! Please back up before running USB_MultiBoot_10.cmd!

  3. Run USB_MultiBoot_10.cmd. follow text description.

  4. Format utility will apear. Choose NTFS for >=4Gb usb flash and FAT16 for other, Start format, Close after finishing to allow the DOS operations to continue.

    1. diamondsw: Using the “HP format” option works fine for any capacity, and you can use FAT32 without problems (I used a 4GB stick). This can be useful as more systems can read FAT32 than NTFS.

    2. NOTE: If you are doing this from a Vista machine, you may need to run PeToUSB.exe as adminstrator in order for this program to recognize the jump drive. (Right click PeToUSB.exe > Properties > Compatibility > “Run this program as an administrator” checked.)

  5. Set options 1 and 2. Set option 0 only if you want to use USB HDD instead of a USB stick/ SD card.

  6. Do not touch other options if you have no idea about it.

  7. Choose 3 after setting all other options. It will create the image and write it to the USB stick as well as making the USBstick / SD card bootable.

  8. Answer Yes to all questions that come up (these vary depending on options selected).

  9. When it finishes copying, remove your usb stick and insert it in the EeePC to install XP.

  10. When you turn on the Eee, hold down “Esc” to choose the boot device and select the USB stick/ SD card. You’ll need to do this at each reboot until XP is fully installed and you’ve logged in.

  11. Choose Text installation at first time and GUI INSTALLATION AFTER REBOOT TWICE! – ( Choose step 1 to start installing, after reboot choose step two, after continued install press step 2 AGAIN to log into XP – As soon as you arrive at the Windows XP Desktop you can safely remove the USBStick / SD card.

    1. If you get hal.dll not found errors, read carefully the last two last bullets!

    2. If you get ‘ntldr is missing’ or other boot errors after you have ran text installation make sure you have deleted ALL partitions during ‘text installation’ this includes the BIOS partition.

IMPORTANT! DO NOT REMOVE USB STICK UNTIL YOU’LL SEE XP’s LOGIN SCREEN!

Looking into the Past of Websites

Posted: April 14, 2009 in Review

Most popular Websites have always come of age during the years, as Google has changed since it was first seen around in late 90’s. Many websites went through transition phase during these years. I have always wondered to see that how the website may look like in the Past?

I got the answer to this question while surfing the Internet. I came around a very useful resource which I would like to share with my readers.

clip_image002

This was how Google’s Looks like back in 1998 .Google was still in beta 11 years ago. Google believed in simplicity and there’s no exception whether it’s 1998 or 2009

clip_image004

This Screen Shot is of Google on 14 Feb (Valentines Day) 2003 and today it is a completely changed phenomenon in 2009

clip_image006

Similarly below are the screen shots of Mobilink Website back in 2000.This Shows that in 2000 Mobilink use to advertise its free outgoing calls, and free incoming calls package in the evening from 6.00 P.M to 7:00 A.M. It was before the Calling Party Pays (CPP) Regulation.

clip_image008

Mobilink in 2009 is completely different with new diverse product range.

clip_image010

Telenor Home Page back on 3rd November 2004, this page shows information about the Telenor acquiring license of GSM in Pakistan. They Clearly State that by the year 4 we will cover 70 % of Pakistan‘s 297 Tehsils Head Quarters.

clip_image012

And in 2009 Telenor is completely with a new look, logo and Finest Value Added Services in the Country. So going back in past gave us a look at the Companies Aim in 2004, which it has achieved to good extent in present.

clip_image014

Ufone Home Page back in 2005, which states at that time that they are the only 2.5 g high tech cellular network in Pakistan offering high speed gprs, mms, wap and sms services. At that time ufone logo was

Pre-paid everybody loves to! clip_image016

And in 2009 Ufone logo is changed to (Its all about U) and is Competing with new products and features.

clip_image018

All these screen shots give us a view that how Companies Went through transitions with time.

These screen shots are taken from the website www.archive.org , it is a great resource for the past of any website, it stores about 85 billion Web pages archived since 1996, which amounts to three petabytes of data. Only five years ago, the Way back Machine

 clip_image019

Contained about 30 billion Web pages. It is expected to continue to grow by 100TB of data per month now that it’s live The Internet Archive organization plans to announce the opening of a new data center to house two petabytes of information for its Machine.

Websites older than one year are featured in this; Pro Pakistani is younger than a year so still it doesn’t feature on the Way Back Machine.

clip_image021

Users can surf the Way back Machine by typing in the Web address of a Web site or webpage and then choose from a series of dates that reflect the stored images. The site does not currently support keyword search.

clip_image023

The real purpose which Way Back Machine is serving is that the Readers, Researchers, Analysts and Scientists could get the resources to the websites and analyze that how a company have passed the transition phase, how and what they changed through time.

The site is also a great resource of history as if one wants to go through historical events or talks one can find it handy.

The outlook of a website is very simple this making it easy to use. The Website looks more focused towards American Society, However it needs to add more cultural aspects of the world.

It is reported that Government is seriously thinking to block the SMS Service in Pakistan Permanently , the reason behind this initiative is that recent Investigations shows that people are misusing this service and it may be threat to the Terrorist activities in Pakistan.

This will have a very bad impact internationally also , that Pakistan is not able to control its Internal Telecom Traffic , And in desperation Blocking the Simple means of communication of youth and many Pakistanis.

If you’ve only got one wired Ethernet connection and a room full of internet-starved laptop users, you can quickly turn your laptop into a wireless hot spot without any extra software. CNET TV has a video tutorial that demonstrates how you can turn Windows Vista, Windows XP, and Mac OS X laptops into wireless broadcasting hot spots. CNET even shows how you can add security to the wireless signal to keep intruders out. The process is painless in Vista and OS X, but requires a few steps in XP. Anyone know how to accomplish the same task in Linux? Share in the comments.
