Charting Your Life

Today I discovered Uladoo (pronounced yoo-LAH-doo). This is a nice charting utility which gathers data from twetter. Uladoo converts data from then creates chart and displays in the form of am image. You can use Uladoo to keep track of you coffee consumption or calories taken or weight loss program etc. You need to send a tweet (as many as you like) to @Uladoo and it updates the chart. You can browse the chart going to the It generates a URL for your chart which you can share with your friends and family members. You can even share this chart with your doctor.

How Uladoo Works:

You need to tweet Uladoo and it automatically updates the chart, if it exists. If the chart  does not exist, Uladoo creates on. For example, I send following tweet to create my coffee consumption chart

@uladoo coffee consumed 3

Then number 3 tells that I have consumed three cups of coffee from morning. Next time, when I will have another cup of coffee, I will tweet

@uladoo coffee consumed 1

and my chart will be updated. I can see this chart here.

How can you make Uladoo work for you:

You can make Uladoo work for you. First decide what you want to chart. It may be your cigarette consumption, number of calls you made to your girl friend/boss/client, lunch expenses, number of calories you take, your wife’s daily expenses etc. Some people track their daily exercise, pull-ups and push-ups.


Happy charting…

Windows Live Mail

Windows Live Mail is Microsoft’s successor to both Outlook Express and Windows Mail, the latter of which ships with Windows Vista. Microsoft describes Windows Live Mail as a superset of both of these consumer-oriented email products, and they will only actively develop Windows Live Mail going forward. Windows Live Mail is dramatically nicer than either Outlook Express or Windows Mail, and it includes a lot more useful functionality, especially if you’re a Hotmail user. (This applies equally to and accounts as well.) But Windows Live Mail isn’t limited to just Hotmail accounts: This is a full-fledged Internet communications client, with support for POP3 and IMAP email, RSS feeds, and USENET newsgroups.

Originally envisioned as an ad-supported email client for Hotmail users, Windows Live Mail has evolved over time and is now a much more impressive release as a result. The shipping version of Windows Live Mail–now available in a feature-complete public beta–offers seamless Hotmail/ integration, as expected, POP3 and IMAP email functionality that rivals third party applications such as Mozilla Thunderbird, RSS support, USENET newsgroup support, and integration with various Windows Live services. If you use Hotmail and/or other Windows Live products like Windows Live Messenger, you’re going to want to check this one out. Heck, if you use Internet email of any kind, you’re going to want to check this one out.

Windows Live Mail sports the new Windows Live look-and-feel, which is heavy on the whites but with high-contrast bluish-green accents. Like newer versions of Outlook, and like the Web-based Windows Live Hotmail, the Windows Live Mail application is visually split into three mail columnar panes, from left to right: Folders, Message list, and Reading pane. Actually, there’s an odd fourth pane called Active Search, too, but you can and should turn this off: Active Search is a weird front-end to Microsoft’s Live Search service, and its real purpose is to deliver ads and sponsored results.

In many ways, Windows Live Mail works like Windows Live Hotmail, and if you’re familiar with the new version of that Web service, or with traditional email clients like Outlook, you’ll have no problem getting up to speed. Architecturally, Windows Live Mail is based on Outlook Express and Windows Mail, so some UI bits, like the Options dialog, and the files Windows Live Mail creates, like the .eml email files, might look familiar. What’s old is new again.

I am using Windows Live Mail as my primary email client since a few weeks and have absolutely no issues. I like some of the customization bits: You can color-code the folders for each email account you configure and apply a Windows Live color scheme to the entire application so that it matches your other Windows Live applications and services.

Speaking of integration, Windows Live Mail is particularly useful if you’re a Windows Live Messenger user. It can be configured to automatically log you onto Messenger whenever you launch the mail client. On the flipside, if you see an email alert in Messenger and click it, Windows Live Mail will launch instead of forcing you to use the Web client. The Contacts portion of Windows Live Mail, which is also a native Windows application, integrates your traditional email contacts with your Windows Live Messenger contacts list, too. A Blog button on the application’s toolbar lets you publish the current message to your Windows Live Spaces blog.

As a modern email application, Windows Live Mail supports instant search, which works wonderfully. There’s also an Outlook-like search folders feature, though I haven’t found a way save email searches as dynamic virtual folders. Instead, stock saved search folders, like Unread email, Unread from contacts, and Unread feeds, are available.

So why would you want to use Windows Live Mail instead of the Windows Live Hotmail Web service? First, and most obviously, Windows Live Mail works offline. So you can sit on an airplane or in some other disconnected location, navigate through and read your email, respond to emails, write new emails, and perform other actions that would be impossible with the Web client while offline. Once you’re online again, all the pending email is sent and everything is synched up again, just as with Outlook and other traditional email clients.

Windows Live Mail also features email account aggregation, so that you can easily access email from two or more accounts (be them Hotmail/ accounts or any combination of POP3 and IMAP accounts), all from the same location. With Web-based email services, you might need to have a different browser window open for each service.

From a safety perspective, Windows Live Mail also provides protection against phishing attacks, viruses, and other malware. This works for all account types, so even though your Hotmail account may be protected by server-side AV scanning, your POP3/IMAP accounts might not. And if you’re into the Windows Live stuff, the integration pieces are quite interesting as well.

Windows Live Hotmail is free and available for users running Windows XP with Service Pack 2 (SP2) or Vista (any version). If you’re currently using Outlook Express or Windows Mail, I strongly recommend upgrading to this product immediately. It is nicer looking, works well with non-Hotmail accounts, and offers much more useful functionality than its predecessors. I like it quite a bit.

Salary Negotiation

OK. that’s what we all do it for money… not every one right. This is probably the weakest area for techno savvy guys. They are not good negotiators. Many guys at the first instance smile and say “NEGOTIABLE SIR“. So here are some points:-

√ Do a study of what’s the salary trend? For instance have some kind of baseline. For example what’s the salary trend on number of year of experience? Discuss this with your friends out.

√ Do not mention your expected salary on the resume?

√ Let the employer first make the salary offer. Try to delay the salary discussion till the end.

√ If they say what you expect ? , come with a figure with a little higher end and say negotiable. Remember never say negotiable on something which you have aimed, HR guys will always bring it down. So negotiate on AIMED SALARY + some thing extra.

√ The normal trend is that they look at your current salary and add a little it so that they can pull you in. Do your home work my salary is this much and I expect this much so whatever it is now I will not come below this.

√ Do not be harsh during salary negotiations.

√ It’s good to aim high. For instance I want 1 billion dollars / month but at the same time be realistic.

√ Some companies have those hidden cost attached in salary clarify that rather to be surprised at the first salary package.

√ Many of the companies add extra performance compensation in your basic which can be surprising at times. So have a detail break down. Best is to discuss on hand salary rather than NET.

√ Talk with the employer in what frequency does the hike happen.

√ Take everything in writing , go back to your house and have a look once with a cool head is the offer worth it of what your current employer is giving.

√ Do not forget once you have job in hand you can come back to your current employer for negotiation so keep that thing in mind.

√ Remember the worst part is cribbing after joining the company that your colleague is getting this much. So be careful while interview negotiations or be sportive to be a good negotiator in the next interview.

√ One very important thing the best negotiation ground is not the new company where you are going but the old company which you are leaving. So once you have offer on hand get back to your old employee and show them the offer and then make your next move. It’s my experience that negotiating with the old employer is easy than with the new one….Frankly if approached properly rarely any one will say no. Just do not be aggressive or egoistic that you have an offer on hand.

Top of all some time some things are worth above money :- JOB SATISFACTION. So whatever you negotiate if you think you can get JOB SATISFACTION aspect on higher grounds go for it. I think its worth more than money.
