The most spoken human name.

Ever wondered which is that single human name that has ever been uttered the most number f times?? I'm wondering, thats why i'm posting here.

Here are some possible candidates.........

*Mahatma Gandhi- Nah, v utter his name nly during our history classes, on our independence day nd these days after seeing Lage raho Munnabhai.
+Abraham lincoln-Same case wit him. The bloody Americans(not all) utter his name nly on occassions.
*David beckham-Yup, Thats a better suggestion. The crowd chants his name during plays, his fans utter his name, girls utter in their sleeps nd ofcourse when they r awake.
+Tom cruise- Hmmmmmmm, ya he is a superstar. But mostly people utter his name nly when he is in the news, for instance when another f his Mission impossible flicks make news or about to make some.

These r some f d names that come to my mind when i think of the title.

But the one name that comes out the winner for me is "Orkut",that addictive social networking site. Ya its actually the name of the guy who developed it, "Orkut buyukkokten" being his full name. He is a google employee, nd developed this site called orkut for his employer in his office free hours. Great!! hmmmm ya great. But does he deserve this much....... His name being uttered the most number of times ever(according to me , that is).
This social networking site has almost a crore users nd most f them talk about it with their freinds when they r offline as well, they do it everyday in the process uttering the name "Orkut". Its the most visible "Human name" on the internet with crores of webpages starting like this "orkut -..........................". Not to mention the crores f notification mails they send to their users wit the subject lukin like "orkut-............".
Ya there are other social networking sites like Facebook, Myspace,Friendster who has got way more users than what "Orkut" has got. But clearly they are not the name of any human. So that doesnt make ne difference here......

Now the ? is does the name "Orkut" deserve all this ?? Does a bit f Programming brilliance 4m Orkut deserve this much??.......... Mayb he shud change the name of his site......... nd pick a leaf out f sites like facebook. Or if he is so adamant on havin a human name, y not try sum f our above candidates....... or would do great ;-)

Nd how abt ;

*- Nd if u r wondering wht d above pic got 2 do wit this post, i'm lettin u know tht i have developed this buggy habit of searching the title of the post ("The most spoken human name." in this case) on google images and pick d most catchy image on d first result page and post it along wit the post topic. Ghosh!!

How to filter ur girlfriend mails??

If you hate seeing those mails( when i say mails these days, it obviously means gmails) 4m ur gf rite inside ur inbox wit her name and d subject line attracting one's attention, well here is a way out to filter those mails into a label. Now start learning how to...

Let’s say that your email address is ‘’, basically everything sent to any of the following email addresses will be forwarded to your primary email.
* *
* *
* *


And that’s not all, you can place as many dots as you want, it can be even something like ‘’ and you’ll still get it on ‘’

Additionally, I just also found out that you can embed random text to your email ID using ‘+’ sign. That is to say ‘’ can be used as your email address, as well.

Ok I got it. Now what ?

Now what u can do is use the above naming covention 2 ur advantage ( mayb ur gf's as well)....
What u can do for instance is ask ur gf to mail u to the id- "" which will be forwarded to (assuming u've understood the above naming convention for gmail).
Step 2 is "create a filter" (this link is availabe on the right side of search mail box inside ur gmail inbox), upon clicking u will have From:,To:,Subject:,Has the words:,Doesn't have:. now in our case we will hv to enter the email id ""(which is the email id u askd ur gf 2 mail to, Bola!!) in the to field. Click next step and check the first option "skip the inbox", then......... check the "apply label" nd choose a label if 1 already exist or else create a new 1(bolanteboli is my name for ur label ;)).

Now what this does is all those mails sent to d id "" skips the inbox and is forwarded to d label "bolanteboli".

Now u may ask y such hassles when u can directly filter mails coming 4m a particular id say
Good question bola!!

Here is a better answer, what if u hv more than 1 girlfriend( which is not at all alien these days)?? u will have to create more than 1 filter, i.e 1 each filter for each gf's mail id (like 1 for,, well that depends on how many gfs u ultimately have.

So thats y i say the "" is the better hack( esecially if u hv multiple gfs). You can give the id "" to all ur gfs nd all those "junk" mails will b accumulated in d label bolanteboli.
Hope theres no confusion ;).........

This hack can be used to 1's advantage not only in d case of gfs but also in many other extra usefull cases. like if u r registering at a site nd u dont want their confirmation mails to appear inside ur inbox u can provide the site with a "+" id, say "" nd create a filter for that.

Bottomline: Now please dont assume that i personally use this hack .......... ;)

Five things i luv abt firefox.

Though i cant limit it to only 5, but if you ask for the best 5, this is how they will go........

+ Extensions- i jus luv em, its like adding more hands to your body, it may luk ugly but comes super useful. click here
for a list f my favourite extensions.

+The restore function- this feature is very handy, many a times i was forced to lose a ff session, no more a problem with the restore function. You get back all those tabs just as a u left it.

+ Bookmarks - Really easy to handle your bookmarks, the import nd export r handy. Things like the quick search r revolutionary.

+ Mutliple profiles- Though u can open only 1 profile @ a time. This feature is useful if u have different preferences or want a firefox profile f ur own if u hv more users on ur system.

+ Quick find- press "/" nd u can move to ne link on d page, This one may seem ordinary, but i juv luv it.

Yup thts d 5, but certainly not the only 5, these r d ones come 2 my mind @ dis moment.............

Hey make it 6 please, i left 1 feature that i probaly luv the most- "Undo closed tab". Uff how did i leave it out in the first place. nehow the greatest thing to have inside ur browser.......
