Cricket and technology: Stickometer

Cricket is in the air and not describing it technological factors would not be fair.
So lets start it with...
SNICKOMETER:
Thanks to the creator of this wonderful technical innovation:-Mr. Alan Plaskett
Snickometer helps the viewers as well as commentrators to judge if the umpire's decision in giving the batsmen out was correct or not.(This creation doesnt allow the viewer to jump out of their tv sets to kill the umpire)
Working:-
A high-sensitive microphone is placed very close to the off stump(may be thats why every mumble of the wicket keeper becomes a shout) and is coinnected to an oscilloscope which measures the sound waves of the oncoming ball.Whenever the batsmen nicks a ball,the oscilloscope trace goes wild.By watching the slow motion replay alongside this graph,you can determine whether the noise picked up by the microphone coincides with the ball passing the bat.
AND
Before:The oscilloscope trace After: The spike in the trace

before the ball makes contact when the ball makes contact
with the bat with the bat

From the above screenshot you can clearly see the difference in the oscilloscope trace.In the first image there is no spike in the trace which means the batsman did not nick the ball whereas the second image clearly shows the spike indicating that the bat has made contact with the ball.
Todays Match:-
vs
West Indies vs New Zealand

The real World cup begins...

Finally The real world cup has kickstarted after 14 days of Ist stage of world cup...i.e the qualification matches are over and now the SUPER 8 has begun...

With the first match between Australia and West Indies.
The W.C started with 16 teams.
8 are here 8 gone
These matches will surely be great.
So get ready as the real world cup has begun.
Today's Match:-

vs
Australia vs Westindies

India washed away by rain

India has finally been washed awayfrom the WC.
Becaude of India itself,rain.Bermuda and the bloody D/L method.
So you need to depend upon some cricket movies like Hattrick etc.
After all in India people have the craze about two things... Bollywood aNd Cricket
If India fails in one, they will burn,cut their posters etc...for a week and then be half normal.

But for this week Indian team is under threat.
For Chappel and other team mates, i suggest that they should buy atleast one burkha for this week or they will have to wear kafan.

Cricket 2005:review

| 0 burps

Cricket in the air.
So Cricket 2005 on your PC's
If compared to Cricket 2002 the previous version which i have played.
It is better in graphics,features,add-ons and some better bugs.
Well some new features in the EA Cricket2007 includes Create Player and Twenty Twenty.
But it has someof the things which kick my head off
No crazy hacks and cheats...and even no controls...
They just throw us in the field with a bat and a ball and you have to test yourself how to bat and how to bowl.
I havent hit a six for a year.(PC)
This is the weak point that EA should look after.
Kick ass controls are no-no
EA Cricket 2007(PS2)is up,I have seen it, not played it yet but for PS2 its good as most of the controls are easy because of analog controls.
But who'll bring an analog stick for a keyboard...

India disappoints again

India lost again!
My criticism didnt worked.
69 runs are enough for a shameful defeat.
Indian people have got mad again.
Burning effegies,destroying cricketer's houses continues...now with more rage.
Its now Bermuda who can save India from getting eliminated from the world cup and getting killed in India.
Now lets start betting on Bermuda.
Bermuda vs Bangladesh tommorow.
But if India gets qualified for Super 8(no chance) it will lose again which means that more wood,more fire more desruction and less sleep.
Lets hope for the best.
Todays Matches:-

vs
Australia vs South Africa

vs
England vs Kenya



Finally India has made a record

I could not believe my eyes.

India had won the match against Bermuda (that's believable)
But they had scored their highest and the highest in the world cup a mammoth-413/5
All right they need to shut people's mouth.
But as said they do best when they are critisized. so,
"What has happened to India,Just 413 so cheap, they can't even reach 500...even Bermuda reached...what a shame!!!"

Todays Matches:-

vs
Sri Lanka vs Bangladesh

vs
Zimbabwe vs pakistan
















Depressed

So India lost the match.
I was soooooooooooo depressed that i could not blog
India was defeated badly by Bangladesh
and the people who burned the fire to pray for their victory are using it to burn their effigies.

Its true and hope India wins now with Bermuda, anyway it will lose against Sri Lanka.
Losing against Sri Lanka might not effect much, but losing against Bermuda might blast the plane in which they'll arive.
So hooohaaa india aaya india
Todays matches:-

vs
India vs Bermuda

vs
West Indies vs Zimbabwe

Cricket 2002: Review

| 0 burps

Its cricket in air so this is the right time to review a game for Cricket

Although half a decade old Cricket 2002 is played still.
Its a good game, bad graphics but fine for games of 2002.
Although everyone is the same, everyone bowls similarly,no special acrion
(Even Harbhajan Singh doesnt wear a patka)
I wont really review this game (Its simple you have a bat and bowl and you have to play)
I would like to share some hacks and cheats of the game .
Cheats first:-
To put cheats you will need to go to extras, put your cursor on credits(it shall get highlited) and start entering these cheats
sbatsman: Super Power Batsmen
bigbat: Big Bat
ulockall: Unlock everything
bouncyball: Bouncy Ball
fatfielders: Fielders look like Umpires
Butter: opponent drops 90% catches
Once with applying big bat, sbtsman,bouncy ball and butter cheats 1 scored over 1100 runs with my team as India and the other one bangladesh.
Now the hacks:-
The best thing i like about this game is the level of customization it provde.
It doesnt provides it you need to seize it
Just download this game whatever your source be
It will by default be in program files>Ea sports>cricket 2002>gfx
Edit any picture from any folder and see the result.
Funny terrible,you can even change the sounds.
An example of a pakistani alien created by me.

Agloco update

| 0 burps


AGLOCO - The new Paid to Surf

Agloco is a new program which is being promoted as a paid to surf program. Paid to surf programs had a bad name because of the paid autosurf programs like 4daily, where you invest some money and it multiplies based on the number of days you surf with their toolbar. Predictably, these autosurfs collapsed soon and many investors lost their money.

However, Agloco is a different type of program. The program is not yet launched and is still in beta phase. When they launch, they are supposed to pay you for surfing with their viewbar open. The viewbar sits unobtrusively at the bottom of your web browser. You get credited for each hour you surf with the viewbar on. There is a monthly limit for the number of hours you can surf. The viewbar shows ads and this helps agloco generate revenue to pay you. The concept is similar to that of Caltiger, an old Indian ISP, which offered free dial up internet if you use their viewbar.

Referral system
Agloco has a great referral system, where you get paid a fraction of what your referrals make at Agloco. So refer your friends or (me-i am your friend)and improve your chances of making money with Agloco! After joining, Agloco will provide you with a referral link like http://www.agloco.com/r/xxxxxx, where xxxxxx is your unique code. You can send this to your friends and ask them to signup using this link, so that you get credit.

How Agloco makes money for you?
It is mentioned at their website that Agloco earns revenue for its members in the following ways:

Search: Every time you use the Viewbar™ to do an Internet search, AGLOCO earns money from the search engine providers. (Google pays as much as $0.10 on average for each search that is directed to its search engine.)

Advertising: The Viewbar™ itself displays ads that are targeted based upon the websites you’re visiting. When you click on an ad and make a purchase, AGLOCO receives a referral fee, which we pass on to our Members.

Transaction commissions: Many major retailers pay commissions when you refer customers who make a purchase. AGLOCO collects that commission and passes it on to our members.

Software distribution: Numerous software companies pay websites to encourage the download of new software releases and trial versions of new programs. AGLOCO members not only get access to the latest and coolest software, they get paid for it.

Service distribution: Many online service providers will look to the AGLOCO community as a source of new and active users for their services. (For example, eBay, Skype, and PayPal, among others, all pay fees to people who help them recruit new active users to their services)

Product distribution: When Members agree to use a product, such as cell phones, high-tech gadgets, office supplies, new credit cards or financial services, AGLOCO can collect referral fees.

How Agloco members can make money
Members earn a monthly share of the AGLOCO revenue based on the use of the AGLOCO Viewbar™ that month.

Members earn part of the company based on the use of the AGLOCO Viewbar™ that month.

Members who use the referral system to help build the AGLOCO network will earn more.

Members will also get a share of any commissions AGLOCO gets when a Member purchases a product or service from an AGLOCO Sponsor company.

How to Join Agloco?
To join Agloco, Click here

Agloco signup page will open in a new window and you can sign up by completing the form. At present, the viewbar is not yet released. It is scheduled for release in second half of March 2007. Till that time you cannot earn any revenues. But you can build your referral network by referring your friends to join. You can in turn ask your friends to refer their friends as this will multiply the number of members in your network. If you refer 10 friends and each of them refer 10 friends, you will have 100 referrals under you. The possibilities are unlimited.

When and how will Agloco pay?
We don't know at present the exact details of how Agloco will pay you.(whether it will pay or not.Hope it doesnt be a big prank-its not just joking. why to worry its free) We only know at present that Agloco will calculate your earnings by allotting shares. Agloco plans to 90% of their revenue with members. They keep 10% as their share including operational expenses.

In their previous incarnation, earlier this decade, it was known as Alladvantage. Alladvanatge paid its members millions of dollars, but had to shut down when the dotcom bubble burst. So there is every reason to believe that Agloco will pay. However, we will have to wait to see how successful it will become. But you have nothing to lose from joining them, as it is free to join and no expenses are involved. If it turns out to be highly successful and you are an early bird with lots of referrals, you will get tremendous benefit.

So what are you waiting for JOIN

Online quarelling

| 0 burps

There are some silly things like chatting.
to bring colour to them you just need to do this:-
Do multiple chatting in any IM.eg. Yahoo
Take it two.Note the person names.
Start chatting with als(age,language,sex)
then write the most things same (coincident)
Tell them about your crazy habit (multiple user chatting)
Tell each one that the other is abusing them,their parents, their family.
If all goes fine...
Congratulations you have put an online quarrel.
If some nice abuses start coming to you, don't start your quarrel.
Close down your IM, your internet connection and give as much vulgar terms to that person.
You will surely get relief.
If not go suicide.

Lets continue with poopSick acting especially of the Ash,Abhi,Hrit... they never talk they just whisper and are a good stuff if you want to nake a nice nap.Like the kiss scene it was better to delete conversations between ash and hrit.The story is like a rabbit as it starts and when ash enters rabbit sleeps and tortoise wins yet again.The worst part is the end.And how much kind is Jai who spent 2.5 hours to catch Mr.A finally throws him to Sunderi.
Songs are sick.Mr A dances like if he has polio.Wanna watch it go watch it, theatres are still sleping with it.
