Crazy Thinking : Video as Orkut Profile Photo

Recently I was checking my statistics and found that someone has visited this blog by searching these terms in google, "how to keep video in place of prfile photo in orkut.". Well this facility is not available in Orkut, so don't look for this. However you can find some javascript code, which will tell you that, if you run this script on your browser's address bar, then you can display any video instead of profile photo. Don't do that, it will hack your session, and using this session the hacker can get access to your user id. To know more about session hijacking about orkut, please visit this. Wait, in that post, I have not given more information about session hijacking, but given one example, how people attract and scare you using this concept.

SQL or Script Injections in Orkut

Well it is not possible to replace a video for image, and if the people behind Orkut want to add this feature, they can add definitely, but this will not be a good move. As of now, most of the Orkut users are using the photos of celebrities, pets, cute babies and other photos as their profile photo. However it is meant for personal picture. How can we expect that people will upload there videos?

And Orkut uses the thumbnails of various sizes of your profile image to show at other places such as friends list, messages, scraps, testimonial, recent updates etc. So video can never replace image. However it can add one feature to add your activity video to the profile. It can be displayed near about me. But now, what you can do is, upload your video to youtube or google video and add it to Orkut.

IPL Website's Flop Show

DLF IPL (Indian Premier League) is running with a bang. It's full of entertainment. And its website was also very nice, featuring live telecast (webcast) of the matches, but their server is unable to deliver such a huge audience. Whenever I visit that site, is not delivering anything to me. When I refresh the page more that 4 times, it shows the contents, without the CSS! And after a long exercise I able to see the page. But since some days it is not showing the Live Webcast of the match. I don't know, where is the problem, it was working fine then. Let's see when we can get it back!

Ipl Teams Websites

The IPL (Indian Premier League) fever is on. Tomorrow is the day, which will see the inauguration of the IPL Twenty20. Before this, I have a look the the websites related to IPL. Before I search for anything I visit (for the first time I am visiting this site). There is no such site actually, but it is the website, where you can book tickets for BCCI. There I found all the links to the IPL team websites. Here is a little review of those.

Royal Challengers Bangalore
This one should be the best website among all the teams (I guess), as this is the team of silicon valley of India. In the homepage (index page) it is showing one flash with Royal Challengers logo and photo of Vijay Mallya. There is one link to enter site, but it is opening the site in a new window, which I hate most. I think it should open in the same window. And the design is good, just need to highlight the tabs properly, now it is only highlighting the home tab. Well the video is nice, I think there is two videos embedded, but I found only one. They are using php for scripting (I am feeling happy, as I am php developer). But what is this? 404 (Page not found) error for Statistics! Ahha, this should not happen here. Well, this website is bellow my expectation.

Chennai Super Kings
Chennai, the place where I live. This site is very nice, made by Coromandel Infotech India Ltd, using and very nice design with good graphics. Chennai is the place for best graphics and special effects, as we know. I was thinking to give no comments for this website, but I found that the favicon is very nice and the link to store is disabled.

Delhi Daredevils
What a website, with very nice flash, very good design and features like webcast and official blog etc. I forget to type here and started watching the webcast. This is such a nice website that, I can not explain it, better you go there and have a look.

Hydrabad Deccan Chargers
Very nicely designed site powered by Drupal. I can say that

Jaipur Rajasthan Royals
This website is also a nice website and informative.

Kolkata Knight Riders
It is a very nicely designed website and much more informative. Online games by is one extra feature in this website as compared to other websites. Fictions, movies so many to browse in this site. You must enjoy browsing through this site.

Mohali Kings XI Punjab
Very nicely designed with flash and this one is also a very good site. The video is also nice.

Mumbai Indians
This site is very simple and coolest looking website. One interesting fact about this site is the meta keywords: "Mumbai Indians, Mukesh Ambani, Nita Ambani, Sachin Tendulkar, MI, MI Paltan, IPL, Cricket, Twenty Twenty, Indian Premier League".

Oh! so many spams!

What mail I got everyday, 30% of them news letters, etc. subscribed mails, 20% of them are spams, 20% of them are actual emails and rest 30% are forwarded sweet spam (chained emails). I call this sweet spam, because we all like to read them, forward them (including the person which has sent you this). The similar content as one mail comes to us in different different avatars and flavors. Some continues for years also. And you will find the birth day some baba or god 365 days in the year. If you will forward to this to x people, you will get Microsoft and if you avoid your computer will become a calculator like this. This girl has lost her both hands and if you will forward this then Orkut or Yahoo will give her 10 paisa for her treatment etc. I don't know how and why Orkut and Yahoo will track this and give anyone 10 paisa per message. I got irritated by these spams. I was just deleting messages in Orkut (where 99% messages are spam), I found one message from someone special, then I had a look to that message. It was very interesting. Have a look to it.

Lost my HB pencil with a rubber attached. The pencil costs Rs.3/.
Orkut has agreed to give me one paisa if you forward this scrap(1 paisa per scrap).
If you have heart and want to help a poor child in need, plz fwd it to atleast 10 friends.
Please don't neglect.
Otherwise my dad will scold me. If you forward this then your life will change for ever.
Your dream will come true tonight at 11.55.
If u dont forward, u'll fail in ur exams

Once I made a request to not to send those chained sweet spams to me and send this message to all my contacts. And I found that it had forwarded to me and became a chained message!

This spam mails and messages are not only wastes bandwidth and space, also wastes our valuable time. So, please never spread spam.

Saw link to your profile in Orkut in an unknown's profile?

People often get worried when they see a link to their profile in the profile of any unknown person's profile (about me). Well this is a trick, this is not the link to your profile. Let me explain how it works.

When you will put this url ( in the address bar of your browser, then you can see your own profile. The url of anyone's profile is like this:
Where uid is the get method variable and the value is the user id of the user, whose profile you are visiting. But if that parameter is not available, then by default it will show, your profile.

In get method, it is needed to have ? after the filename and then the get parameters. If some thing is wrong or missing, then it will not accept these parameters. In this url ( you will find 2 after ? . Well 2 and ? are looking similar! So 2uid is not a valid variable here. So url ( is equal to url ( That is why you will see your profile. So no need to be worry. If you have any doubt regarding this or any other, then please send me an email or post here in comments.

When you will click on the profile link, it will open that persons profile and in about me you can find some message as following.

Clear ur address bar..copy paste.. Below Script To See This Person's Picture:-


I always avoid this and delete the scrap from my scrapbook as I know this is nothing but a attempt to have SQL or Script injection or Session Hijacking script. I am interested to see the JavaScript code and analyze it and to determine, what is the script doing. But, due to lack of time I say I will do it later. But today how ever I looked at one script. From this I understand that, the script is using popular web 2.0 technology Ajax, and let me explain what it does.

First it collects your friend list and sends that scrap to all and then displays some text about sql injection and ethical hacking. And with this it also displays your friends profile photos. My system is now crashing frequently. I hope this will be fixed in this week. After that I will play with all these scripts and post in detail. I promise that I will also help you to play with me.

And be careful, never run such scripts on your address bar. If you want to ask anything you can post here, I will reply.

Is this a worm or the script you run in Orkut?

I got one message saying this:

if anyone gets a scrap with this content
Heya !!
how are you??
Do you know there was a profile in news last night

link :- click here

The about me of This Profile Is Superb.

PLEASE DELETE IT.. ITS A SELF REPLICATING WORM, WITH VERY LESS HASH TIME. even if you dont click it chances are that it'll self replicate within minutes of ur online session


People think that this is a worm and replicating itself. But this is not what happens right there. When you will click on the link, it will take you to the community home page, where you will find a JavaScript and it is asked there to run this script in the address bar of your browser where you browse Orkut. Generally in this script there will be another source of JavaScript, in a file in a server other than Orkut. And when you will run that script, it can access your browsers session and cookies and can do what ever it can do according to the script. It can post scraps to all of your friends in your list, it can also delete them all or can hijack your session, so that the hacker can access the advantage as you logged in. This is the script which replicates the scraps in your list, when you run it, not the worm.
You will also get some scraps to send scraps to all friends in the list. But never do that. Don't run any script in the address bar unless you understand it. Be secure yourself.
If you want any good scraps, testimonials and photo scraps for Orkut, then please visit :: Scraps, Testimonials and more ...
I am thinking to read those scripts and analyze what actually they do. Then I will modify it and host in my server, and I will give you assurance that it will not make any problem for you. But, what I actually need is, I am not getting enough time to do all these. Please inspire me by giving your comments and linking back to this blog.

Can you copy Orkut profile photos?

When Orkut was new, then there was some security issue, regarding our personal information, photos etc. Well photos, there was also crime of copying any person's (generally girl) photo and create duplicate profile and posting bad things in it. Now Orkut is safer than those days. Now you can set your personal settings, such as who can see your album, video, scraps, who can post scraps, and who can see your profile etc. And now also you can not copy profile photos by right clicking on it and saving the image. This is the way all follow to copy any image. Now if you try to save image by right clicking on it, instead of that picture, another picture which is basically a transparent image will be saved. Do you think that it is all secure, no one now can copy profile images. If you think so, then you are absolutely wrong. There is a simple method, by using which anyone can save the profile photo. I will not say how, because I am against the wrong use of others photo, personal information or anything. It is very simple to copy the image, but I don't think most of the Orkut users know this. To confirm this, I have created a poll. Please participate in this poll, so that we can get some information on it. You can also help me to spread this message to participate in this poll. To participate in this poll please click here. You can also find the widget for this poll in the side bar. You can send this url to your friends or post anywhere. The url is
And if you think you should not post your photo in Orkut for this security issue, then don't. And if you understand this problem, then just say, what about my idea of using flash for this profile photo?

Powered by Linux : Ubuntu

Since last week, my systems continues to crash frequently. I tried to install Windows Vista 11 times but every time it crashed in between. Well I successfully fixed this issue over telephone support of dell, but on the next day my system crashed. As I have to go to office and I am unable to take leave to fix this issue (Dell provides support in business hours only, there is also a gold support which is available 24X7, but I don't have money to afford this), it is clear that I have to fix this after a week. But my addiction to Internet can't stop me sitting idle. I tried to boot Ubuntu from the DVD live. The need was to access only Internet. (Those stupid buddies at Airtel don't know what is Live DVD of Linux or Ubuntu and how to make the settings. I will post regarding this later.) Any how I managed to set the configurations to access Internet. Then while accessing Internet, I thought lets try to install Ubuntu. F@ck that Windows Vista for a while. I followed the path to install Ubuntu. It was so easy that I have never expected. I used to listen that installation of Linux is complicated. But now I feel that installing Ubuntu is much more easier than any flavours of Windows. Just you need to be careful while selecting hard disk partitions. I recommend you to use 10 GB for installation and (1.5 * your ram) for swap, where the minimum requirement is 2 GB + 256 MB (swap). But it is not more confusing also. Then everything is very easy. And the most interesting thing was I was browsing Internet while it was installing Ubuntu in my system. While in case of windows installation you need to be bore for around one hour. I am thinking to switch to Linux for most of my work. What do you think about it?

Why should we indent our code?

Why should we indent our code?

When I was studying in my 1st semester of B.Tech, I was writing a C program. That time I was not aware of indentation, however i have seen this in some other students program. My program had one error, which I was unable to fix. When I asked our lab demonstrator regarding this, first he started indenting my code. I asked, "Why are you doing so? To look code beautiful or this will resolve the bug?". He smiled and replied "Of course this will look beautiful as well as help you to understand and easily debug your code." Then I was coding 20 or 30 lines of code (LOC). Now when I am coding thousands lines of code, I understand why should we indent and proper indention.

To explain this simple but most useful concept, I decided to use HTML as example language, as most of the people know basics of HTML and everybody say that this language is the easiest one.

Take a look at this non-indented code:

In the above piece of code it is difficult to navigate to any part of code, how ever this contains 12 lines. Think, when you need to find end of some tag in 4000 lines of code, how can you find? In some other languages there some control feature as if condition. If you need to find out where the if condition is ending in 4000 lines of codes? Remember before reaching to the end of if loop you can encounter some other if loops started withing this. So without proper indentation it is very difficult to find out what we need.

The above piece of code can be written with proper indentation as this:

Now you can figure out how easy it to navigate though your code. To indent your code you can use tab or some spaces. (It is recommended to use 4 spaces instead of tab. You can configure your text editor to print 4 spaces when you press tab.)
Again one question comes into my mind. Why people hesitate follow proper indentation? The answer is simple: due to laziness. But they unable to realize that, what they are coding today may need to be modified tomorrow. If they think they save some seconds by not using indentation, may need to spend some hours to find out where to modify. So start following proper indentation right now.
