listid operator

Just noticed today that gmail supports an operator called listid which can be used to filter mails belonging to any specific mailing list. Just key in "listid:<listname>" to filter all mails sent to or recieved from that mailing list. (Of course, replace <listname> with your mailing list name)

Google Pages

Just made a page for myself at GooglePages.

IE Tab!

One of the coolest extensions for firefox that i have noticed recently is IE Tab. It allows you to use the IE rendering engine to render any firefox tab. So you can actually view how a webpage looks like in both IE and firefox using different tabs of the same firefox window.

Hyd Notes - 1

  • Hyd seems to be filled with police all the time. They seem to be pretty strict as well. As helmets in two wheelers and seat belts in four wheelers are compulsory here, i guess the police squads will be making quite a good amount of revenue.
  • Roads are very wide compared to the ones from Bangalore. Traffic also is a bit light compared to Bangalore. So its not that tough to stay >10Kms from your office.
  • Traffic sense of people here is really pathetic. And most drivers are pretty rash. And almost every vehicle here has atleast a few dents.
  • Its pretty hot out here, even though it's not yet summer.
