Joke 1: The Irish declare war
Saddam Hussein was sitting in his office wondering whom to invade next when his telephone rang. "Hallo, Mr. Hussein!", a heavily accented voice said. "This is Paddy down at the Harp Pub in County Sligo, Ireland. I am ringing to inform you that we are officially declaring war on you!". "Well, Paddy, "Saddam replied, "This is indeed important news! How big is your army?" "Right now," said Paddy, after a moment's calculation, "there is myself, my cousin Sean, my next door neighbor Seamus, and the entire dart team from the pub. That makes eight!".
Saddam paused. "I must tell you, Paddy, that I have one million men in my army waiting to move on my command." "Begorra!", said Paddy. "I'll have to ring you back!" Sure enough, the next day, Paddy called again. "Mr. Hussein, the war is still on! We have managed to acquire some infantry equipment!". "And what equipment would that be, Paddy?" Saddam asked. "Well, we have two combines, a bulldozer, and Murphy's farm tractor."
Saddam sighed. "I must tell you, Paddy, that I have 16,000 tanks and 14,000 armored personnel carriers. Also, I've increased my army to 1-1/2 million since we last spoke "Saints preserve us!" said Paddy. "I'll have to get back to you." Sure enough, Paddy rang again the next day. "Mr. Hussein, the war is still on! We have managed to get ourselves airborne! We've modified Harrigan's ultra-light with a couple of shotguns in the cockpit, and four boys from the Shamrock Pub have joined us as well!"
Saddam was silent for a minute and then cleared his throat. "I must tell you, Paddy, that I have 10,000 bombers and 20,000 fighter planes. My military complex is surrounded by laser-guided, surface-to-air missile sites. And since we last spoke, I've increased my army to TWO MILLION!" "Jesus, Mary, and Joseph!", said Paddy, "I'll have to ring you back."
Sure enough, Paddy called again the next day. "Top o' the mornin', Mr. Hussein! I am sorry to tell you that we have had to call off the war." "I'm sorry to hear that," said Saddam. "Why the sudden change of heart?" "Well," said Paddy, "we've all had a long chat over a bunch of pints, and decided there's no way we can feed two million prisoners."

Anyway let me tell you what the problem was: I wanted to enter Marathi sentences, special characters etc in MySQL and have them encrypted. Now encryption was the catch - otherwise it worked alright. I am using AES ENCRYPTION here. And I found out that normal alphabets fared okay but special characters used to get screwed. e.g. the degree sign would be replaced by something like Ǻ.
Now, I was in a bad fix here since I wasn't much familiar with BLOBs. But I vowed that I would overcome every limitation and I would find the solution to this problem. Head on to see what mountains I crossed!!!

I recently went through a CV overhaul. I was looking around at all those fantastic Resumes and I thought why not have one of these? Okay it was more on the lines of - Damn, I need to get my Resume swanked up! Or nobody would notice me! So I hunted on the internet for some catchy ideas that will give me the boost I sorely wanted.
Here's a small list of Possible Prospects. And they are swanky!!!
HP Releases TouchPad and two new smartphones touting WebOS 3.0(for TouchPad) and WebOS 2.2 (for Phones)

Nancy again from
In my first 2 emails, I had talked about one basic thing that drives
most of the problem behaviors in Namya. I
also showed you how to stop your Namya from Jumping.
Today, I'll talk about how to stop your Pug from
barking and biting.
STOPPING Namya FROM BARKING
If your Pug is barking or howling when ignored,
it's probably because it suffers from separation anxiety.
Separation anxiety usually starts with fear and insecurities.
Yesterday, I sent you an email explaining why
I'll train Namya for free.
Since then, tons of people have written me asking
if this was 'for real'.
The answer is: YES!
I'll flat out GIVE you my ENTIRE Pug
Lovers Membership Site for free if Namya
isn't magically transformed into a dream dog.
It's all here in black and white:

If numbers reproduced like biological lifeforms, within a relatively few generations all numbers would be even.
After all, the only way you can get an odd number as a result of a multiplication is if both 'parents' are odd. Presuming that any even numbers exist, natural interbreeding will shortly dispose of all but the most hard-core 'racial purity' odd-ites. Eventually, they'll die out through attrition and inbreeding.
It's a good thing for established mathematics that numbers don't breed.
