Classic Bollywood rain song

A fine example of a classic Bollywood rain song. For the uninitiated: until very recently, rain songs were the steamiest parts in Bollywood movies (closely followed by rape scenes, which were, strangely, very popular). Nowadays pretty much everything goes, but there was a time when the actors weren't allowed to kiss on-screen (scandal magazines filled the void of our imaginations), so they tried to do everything else to keep you interested. Fans of this song (featuring Amitabh Bachchan and the late Smita Patil) will religiously tell you that it's very romantic. The tune is catchy on my Hindi-tolerant ears, but in polite disagreement, I never can stop laughing at it. Go on, take a look. PS1- the guy who appears at the end of the song plays the owner of the hotel where the other two work. At the end of the movie, he turns out to be the long-lost brother of the tall guy. PS2- my wife tells me that this was once voted the sexiest Bollywood song ever. PS3- sorry if this post offends anybody.

How to get rid of the Blogger navbar

There's hardly a Blogger user to be found who hasn't been irked by the navbar. True, it’s not entirely useless – it lets you quickly log on to Blogger and provides a quick customization link. But by just being there the navbar brings a generic look to your blog, which is enough to make readers not take it seriously. On top of that, the navbar allows any Blogger user to flag your blog! (Which, assuming you’re one of the good guys, puts you at the mercy of the goodwill of your diverse readership.)Therefore it’s imperative that you hide your Blogger navbar, or at least know how to. In case you’re wondering, the Blogger Terms of Service doesn’t say anything about the navbar, so you’re good to go.Hiding the Blogger navbar1. Sign in to your Blogger account.

Miscellaneous security software (part 1)

This is part 9 in my Optimizing Broadband|Windows|Firefox series and part 1 of my reviews of miscellaneous security software. Covers anti-spyware, anti-adware, registry cleaners, junk file cleaners, and install monitors.The following aren't really reviews, but should provide you with everything you need to know.

Anti-spyware and anti-adware reviews
Most antivirus applications today come with built-in anti-spywares, so unless you're suspicious something is wrong with your PC you don't need to worry. However, it would be a good idea to install a third-party anti-spyware and anti-adware once in a while to make sure everything's under control. The chief anti-spyware and anti-adware brands are Windows Defender (from Microsoft), Ad-Aware 2007 Free (Lavasoft), AVG Anti-Spyware Free Edition (Grisoft) and Spybot S&D (Safer Networking). Note that I haven't mentioned any paid software, such as the popular Spy Sweeper (Webroot Software). It hardly makes any sense to spend m…
