Providing Friday Proofs to MySQL Consultants

In the MySQL world, I am surrounded by some of the best database consultant, it brings them immense joy about having a “Friday”, so much so that they cannot believe that it actually is a Friday. Regardless of what they see on their watches and calendars, it becomes a crucial task of the day to prove it. Prove it technically that it actually is a Friday.

This blog post is my attempt to share the proofs of existence of a “Friday”.

Using MySQL datetime function: dayname

MySQL [(Kedar)]> select dayname(now());
+----------------+
| dayname(now()) |
+----------------+
| Friday         |
+----------------+
1 row in set (0.000 sec)

Mad WWE Fan Destroying Kid With Chokeslam | Don’t try this

There are a lot of speculations around WWE and its effect on kids.  I personally love watching the Stars and their action and dedication towards the World Wrestling Entertainment! Though many people out there do oppose the game. They say, it increases the violence in people and fan following.

The show do warn every-time: ‘Don’t try this’ at home or at school!! But you cannot control unguided rockets 🙂

It goes like people start following the WWE stars; Kane, Undertaker, John Cena and the list goes on…
soon end-up in copying them without knowing the realities and hard-work behind! and ultimately ruining the WWE’s name.
In such cases if the problem is not addressed well & the child is not taken care of, it’s really a problem.
When the child grows up with such mentality, it will be something extremely tragic as happened below…

Check out how a mad WWE Fan, who is so much inspired by Kane and his Chokeslam, that he literally destroys the baby.

So mind it always…

WHO YOU ARE,
WHATEVER YOU DO…
PLEASE DON’T TRY THIS.

Place to visit Mumbai: Alibaug 1-2 day tour weekend picnic

Think about one day tour and a lot of fun in Mumbai? Alibaug is a good choice.

It a normal budget, full day, full fun and great place.

Reach Gateway Of India. [20 Mins walk / 5 Mins (Rs. 15) Taxi from Chatrapati Shivaji Terminus / Victoria Terminus]

Gateway of India

Gateway of India

Book a PNP / Ajanta Jetty from booking stalls opposite to Gateway of India. [AC – 120, non-AC – 65]. [First ferry @ 8.30 AM – depends on tide conditions too]

Non-AC ferry, top seat is best way to travel as you can feel the breezing wind and cool waves. The birds following in the mid-sea to the ship is a different fun to capture them.

Next you will land at Mandwa port, Quick walk to the bus services provided by PNP / Ajanta to Alibaug. [It takes 1 Hr from Gateway of India to Mandwa and ~30 Mins from Mandwa to Alibaug.]

If you’re over cautious, book tickets for return journey and confirm day’s last jetty. PNP / Ajanta Jetty service offices are near by only.

The closest beach is Alibaug beach, walk-able distance from Alibaug bus stand.

At Alibaug beach you may have water bike / wave ride, or normal sea-routines.

If you’re a fort’oholic, you may choose to visit the Colaba Fort @ 100 Rs / person through a 10 minute boat ride. 1 hr. is sufficient to capture all major corners of the fort.

I don’t much recommend Alibaug to waste your precious time on.

Akshi and Negaon beaches are on the same route. Auto will charge 120 Rs for Negaon beach ~30 mins from Alibaug Station / beach. [Take mobile number from auto driver in case of no return transport availability.]

Negaon beach

and is really a recommended one. It has nice long beach with all those coconut trees greeting the waves to the shore.

If you’re a bunch of crazy guys looking for a place to freak-out, Negaon beach is for you. Football, cricket, Hourse riding or any beaching activity is absolute fun here. I don’t like lazy bums in the gang but they can rest under the shadows on misty sand. Gliding and water rides are of-course available.

Hotels / rooms are cheap; food is okay; though these shouldn’t impact as these are not major fun part.

You cannot cover everything in one day; nor have I visited all of the attractions there.

For 1 day tour, pack a bag and directly reach to Negaon beach.

Approx expenditure: <500 Rs / person.

codeorgan-give sound to your webpage-website

Today I found an interesting site which plays your website!!

Yep… it’s codeorgan.com.

The codeorgan analyzes the body content of any website / webpage and translate that in to music.

It uses complex algorithm helps it in defining key, synth style and drum patterns as per page content.
[ad#ad-2-300×250]

Steps it follow to play your website / webpage:

– It scans page contents, removes all characters not in musical scale (A to G) and then uses remaining to find most commenly used “note”.

– It also defines synthesizer to use based on number of charcter on webpage.

I gave it a try; I found it pretty interesting idea 🙂

Check how this page sounds.
