If they get changed. What to do?

Hi to all,

I need answers for few questions which I got in my mind.

Why are we using Google, WordPress, Facebook, Twitter and so on…?
My answer to this question, to make use of the feature which has been provided by the company to accomplish my tasks very easily for free of cost.

Recently I noticed in WordPress, they removed the feature called “Install Plugins” from wordpress.com. Beauty of the “Install plugins” feature is we can install any plugin/add-on  in wordpress blog if we have singed up in wordpress, some of the plugins to make the tasks easier are  creating Table of Contents, Code Highlighter, and so..

Now the thing is they removed the feature from wordpress.com and still providing in wordpress.org. So, If i want to utilize this feature I supposed to register my blog in public domain and get support from wordpress.org and then I need to utilize the feature for some amount of cost.

Like that in-case if in future if they noticed that most of the people using wordpress and all of them are depending on wordpress, and if they decided to change everything to some amount of cost, would people withdraw the usage of wordpress? I don’t think so.

Similarly we are using google products like gmail, picasa, groups, and tons more…. If they decided to charge 10$ for creating and maintaining accounts in gmail, then would people like to using that one further? I think at that time they will look for an alternative in-case if they don’t feel the comfortableness on the  new product, am damn sure that they will not hesitate to spend 10$ for an account in gmail.

Here comes my question:   

In future if they changed like above, what will we do…..?
In Otherway, If they stop providing features/products in free of cost and charging for some amount what will we do?

Awaiting for your answers….

Where and when I would use if( __name__ == “__main__”):


I’m Confused. pls, Clarify on this

I clearly understood the concept of above statement, but I don’t know where the situation which I can use that __name__ statement effectively. What I have understood on the statement is  python interpreter has some variables by default like that it also have a variable called __name__. During the execution of python files it will assign values to that variable. If it is an stand-alone program execution then the value of __name__ would be “__main__” if python is imported then the value of __name__ would be the file name of the python file.

#Filename: foo1.py
print “Value of __name__ Variable:  ”+__name__

if I execute the above file.
Execution: python foo1.py

Output is:

Value of __name__ Variable:  __main__

Whereas if I execute the file as module by importing (i.e.)

#Filename: foo2.py
import  foo1

print “I am foo2”

Execution: python foo2.py


Value of __name__Variable: __foo1.py
I am foo2

Now, my question is,  if(__name__ ==”__main__”): statement used only to identify whether it is main program or stand-alone program. Isn’t it? Am I correct? Pls clarify more……

Proud to been into “Amazing Auto”

Hey Folks,

Two weeks before I had a chance to travel in this “Amazing Auto”. You people can think why am referring these normal auto as amazing. Yes! I have got valid reason on stating like that.

It is a share auto which is moving in and around of OMR, Mr. Anna Duari who is owner of an auto which got 1,06,102 views, 867 likes Youtube Link:  “Amazing Auto”

Generally a share auto contains audio player/FM radio to entertain their passengers. But here, Mr. AnnaDurai passionate on entertaining their passengers with various ultimate features as follows:

1. Audio Player
2. Video Player
3. Multiple pin Mobile Chargers
4. English/Tamil Magazines (Current Editions)
5. English/Tamil Daily Newspapers
6. Wi-Fi (I didn’t expected this feature…..)
7. Game Contests
8. Lucky Prices (once in a month)

Usually I don’t travel regularly in share auto, but one day at late time due to lack of MTC buses I had supposed to travel in a share auto. I got into that auto at “Thiruvanmiyur” and got down at “Shollinganallur” totally it took around 20 to 30 minutes. But you believe me, I felt that I was been into that auto just less than 5 minutes of time like that. I really surprised on seeing those features in that auto. I was sitting inside and looking around that auto, also he used to play English songs like linkin park, psy’s Gangam style, Justin babear’s song and so on…..

I also checked that Wi-Fi connection whether it is working or not. It was working well and goooood. :)

I tried to took photos inside that auto, due to movement of that auto I got few shots only without any shake I will share that snaps for you people…. Once I got down from that share auto I thought he might be charging at-least 10 Rs. extra when comparing to normal autos but there too he impressed me by charging regular amount.

While leaving he gave one coupon, Just a moment I forget to tell one thing in that auto he hung few A4 printed sheets. Matter on that paper was “You will be getting one coupon for each travel in this share auto. At the end of every month those who having more coupons he/she will be getting gift voucher of Rs. 1000/-” like that. Great nah…. ;)

I also got that one…. It’s here  Imagesnaps…


Finally after collecting that token, I went to room and my first work was watching that amazing auto video in youtube. In that video he explained about his ambition that was simply awesome… I don’t like to share anything about that video please watch it and like it…

My Comment about him: A good initiate with Great Innovative.
