Some times we may forget to write the subject in our mails. And that too happens
when we sent some important mails to our boss. It happens unintentionally. Don't
worry......... just follow the simple steps mentioned below and see the result.

1. Open your outlook

2. Press Alt+F11. This opens the Visual Basic editor

3. On the Left Pane, one can see “Microsoft Outlook Objects”, expand this. Now
one can see the “ThisOutLookSession”.

4. Click on “ThisOutLookSession”.

5. Copy and Paste the following code in the right pane. (Code Pane)

Private Sub Application_ItemSend (ByVal Item As Object, Cancel As Boolean)

Dim strSubject As String

strSubject = Item.Subject

If Len(strSubject) = 0 Then

Prompt$ = “Subject is Empty. Are you sure you want to send the Mail?”

If MsgBox(Prompt$, vbYesNo + vbQuestion + vbMsgBoxSetForeground, “Check for
Subject”) = vbNo Then

Cancel = True

End If

End If

End Sub

Save this and now close the VB Code editor and take a breath. From now on, this
macro will make sure you do not make the mistake of sending a mail without

Posting code, formulas, equations in blog posts

Posted in @home, Apache, Linux, mysql, PHP, Technical, work with tags , , , , , , , , , , on September 5, 2009 by saffrongeek

To post code snippets or formulas or equations I was finding the format loose when I save the post. I checked out any way to highlight the code or preserve the program structure to make it readable neat but I found it tough. Then, after a few trial and errors , I got a way for this. You are lucky and would not find it tough my way , if you have your own webspace. I still now had not. 😦

Steps to post the code , program, formulas, equations without losing format structure or readability on free blog spaces is to :-

Step #1: Switch to HTML mode

Step #2: Type the < pre > and < /pre > tags.
Step #3: Copy the code or equation or whatever you would like to preserve format.
Step #4: Open, select filter tags option and paste the copied. click convert.

Step #5: Copy the converted and paste it between < pre>  and </ pre> tags and switch back to visual mode in editor.
Step #6: Now , publish and Hope you have the format preserved.

Let me know your thoughts.

[Resolved] Work Out Puzzle [ Maths ]

Posted in @home, Technical, work with tags , , , on August 24, 2009 by saffrongeek

A man wanted to get into his work building, but he had forgotten his code. However, he did remember five clues. These are what those clues were:

The fifth number plus the third number equals fourteen.
The fourth number is one more than the second number.
The first number is one less than twice the second number.
The second number plus the third number equals ten.
The sum of all five numbers is 30.

What were the five numbers and in what order?



X5+X3 = 14

X4 = X2+1

X1 = 2X2-1

X2+X3 = 10

X1+X2+X3+X4+X5 = 30


X1+X2+X3+X4+X5 = 30

X1+X2+X4 = 16  ( From, X5+X3 = 14 )

X1+2X2+1 = 16

=> 4×2=16 => X2=4

Now, this => X3=6, X5=8, X1=7, X4=5.

Access Code is 74658.

Resizing and Content not readable issue on new Partition

Posted in @home, Linux, PHP, Technical, work with tags , , , , , on August 24, 2009 by saffrongeek

Background Scenario:

I was finding my 55+GB Ubuntu OS running short of storage space. My harddisk had near to 80GB untouched till now. Somehow, I wanted to move my personal files to a new partitiion space so that my home folder gets a bit light weighted.

In Ubuntu, Go to System->Administration->Partition Editor. Select the partition you are gona resize for use. Make sure the ext3 filesystem is selected, and Click OK.

Now once done, you would have to restart your SESSION or just restart again. In the Places, drop down you would find the new partition. I prefer to mount it as when necessary.


I moved my personal files to new partition but was a bit not sure whether all happened fine. So when I open the partition in file browser, I find the folder with unreadable icon over it. An attempt to explore inside showed me a pop up saying like this :

The folder content could not be displayed. You do not have permission necessary to view the contents.

I just tried the below command and yep now the drive is accessible for read / write. Still, creating a directory from browser is not possible though ‘Terminal’ mode got no issues.

sudo chmod -R a+rX, go-w {pathtofolder}

Yep, Now I have a partition where i could back up my personal and project files and also able to explore them in file browser

The above resolved my issue but not sure to what extent. I find all working fine. I would be glad to know your thoughts and pointers.

National Security Guards OR National Shikandi Group ?

Posted in @home, drama, society with tags , , , , , , , , , on July 26, 2009 by saffrongeek

National Security Guards OR National Shikandi Group ?

Let me share a few news clips to justify the title. The day today known as 26/11 saw the NSG in action. Atleast , the terrorist strike got them a chance to get live on channels of their heroism( if it could be called so ). All were havin good words for them, roses being passed to them as a good will thanks.

After few weeks, it is gearing up time for General Election. The news channel was showing politician coming out of his residence to attend some public gathering. Ahead of him is one marching NSG commando. What we see next is, Lalu kicking him and abusing badly… sayin something like , ” in the name of protection , saalein kahin bhi aa tapktey hai”.

What Lalu missed that day to realize was that , the NSG commando job is to keep him safe and Lalu got no authority to question him , rather obey commando thoughts in security.

Well, NSG deserve this , that is what they are made for. Protect these politicians and at the same time receive kicks on their ass.

Now, why am I saying? Few days back the government made a press briefing that they are thinking of pulling back many of the NSG from providing unnecessary protection. Good news but cant trust this government because it is not RUN by strong hand and mind but a old man who just now underwent bypass surgery.

The funny part is to see the same Lalu who kicked the NSG that day protesting and saying this would call for untoward incidents and should be reconsidered.

Now, it is time for security cops to send message to governement that either they stay their ground or security cop go on a non-coperation movement.
