Free XBOX Live Codes – How to Get Them?

Posted by 28 May, 2009 Comments Off on Free XBOX Live Codes – How to Get Them?

Free XBox Live CodesStepping up towards the new age of gaming world, we can find consoles like XBOX, one of the competing brand that has sold over a million devices all over the world.

When you buy it, you usually get a two month free trial card that contains the basic Xbox Live codes that allow you to play the games of the console free for two months. Once this trial period ends though, you need to buy the codes or find them somewhere else. Now one option available is of checking Microsoft incentives, because the company gives cards – like the known Microsoft Diamond Card – that offer codes for the console.

However, if this does not seem feasible, then you can always go online and check if there are free xbox live codes available. Before actually using them, you have to check if they are legitimate and suitable for your games and your Xbox devices.

Posted by 22 May, 2009 Comments Off on Unblock Myspace from school – the easy way!

Unlock Codes For MyspaceWe all are aware of the social networking sites like Myspace, Facebook, Hi5, and those who are a member of it, are very addicted to its usage, which is very natural.

Many schools including high schools, colleges, and universities have set their computers to block sites like Myspace so that students cannot access these sites, as it might conflict with the institutions policies.

As we all know that, if there is a way to block it, then there is also a way to unblock it. One thing you can try to unlock Myspace from school is to use an alternative web browser, like Mozilla Firefox or Opera.

Sometimes the network filtering is set up using what is called group policy settings and these are for internet explorers. This might be the easiest way for you to unlock Myspace and other social networking sites. Just try using another browser for the web and you might have access in a matter of seconds.

You will have to sign up to use these proxies to bypass your school servers. After you have signed up you will be able to go to the proxies’ home page and type in the site you want to access. It will give you access to your site and now you will have unlocked Myspace from school.

HSSE Examination System in Pakistan: a Dilemma

Posted by 21 May, 2009 (4) Comment

student-cheatingThere was a time when education was treated as some thing sacred. People used to feel respected and important being a part of an education institute. But now the things have changed a lot. If we want to find out the reason there can be so many reasons. Just take a real life example.

My cousin was taking exams a week ago. During the exam he said there were many students who were cheating. They were having books and notes with them in their desks. And the teachers and invigilators there allowed them to do this.  During the mid of the exam they get to know that inspection team is expected so, they took back all the books and notes form the students. After the inspection team was gone they gave them back their books and notes.

Lays Chips HARAAM: Propaganda or Truth?

Posted by 19 May, 2009 (70) Comment

Lays Masala PackagingSome days back I received on SMS and an Email saying that, Lays Chips (Masala Flavor) is HARAAM. On the back of the Lays chips “E631 Fat” is printed which means the oil of pig meat. And it further says that for clarification write this name on Google search and you will find the results. When I searched on Google what I found is that it is a Guinea pig fat that is being used for cooking purpose.  But again there is difference of opinion. Some people say that it’s not an authentic information that E631 is really the pig fat.

Looking for summer BBQ fun? How about cooking shrimps?

Posted by 14 May, 2009 Comments Off on Looking for summer BBQ fun? How about cooking shrimps?

When you hear the word “summer”, what comes in your mind first? Let me guess, summer sports, right, but what if I say in context of cooking, and then you should be thinking of cooking some shrimps, the best Way to Light Charcoal

There are many ways of cooking shrimps, but I have outlined a basic method to help you get started in the first place.

For a pound of shrimp you will need to bring two quarts of water to boil. Then you will have to salt the water lightly. If you prefer you can add lemon juice to the water, this is optional though, so do it however you prefer.

BBQ Fun

Once the water is at a boil, you will then have to shut off the heat that is under the water. Then add the shrimp to the water all at once. After this, let them steep for about 3 to 5 minutes. Remember, shrimp are better when you cook them gently.

Your shrimps will be done by this stage, however, you can quickly boil or poach them, which is the most common method, put them in a skillet with butter or oil, in a fryer, on a barbecue grill, a steamer, or in a hot oven. This is likely to make them more tasty and delicious.

Hope the procedure is clear.
