Play Mafia Wars Atlantic City from PC

Mafia Wars Atlantic City which was launched for mobile play can now be played through your pc too. Atlantic City is costlier in terms of stamina and energy needed to play there but the advantages are many. You will get free boosts everyday(I got +200 energy on my 1st visit) plus the rewards are very cool ones.

Do give Atlantic City a visit. Now it can be played from your computer (pc) too. Use the following link to visit Mafia Wars Atlantic City page from your computer :

Many people are complaining about Boardwalk (ie level 2) is not getting unlocked even though Uptown (level 1) has been mastered.

The thing is that Atlantic City implementation though computer is very buggy. Many people are unable to unlock successor levels, or they are not getting the completion rewards. For me it works just fine. Click on the image below and check out. I was on Boardwalk, I completed the bronze master and unlocked the next level. So it is working fine for me.

On doing a bit of research online and consulting my Mafia friends, I understand that its looks like a glitch from Zynga which is creating all such problems. The web interface for the above mentioned link was different and was later changed to what it is now. This new interface causes the unlocking problem for some. Not all players are facing this problem it seems.

We cannot do much about it. But try the following in case they work for you. No guarantees here friends.
1. Many players have reported that the link is working perfectly on Google Chrome browser. So if you are on Firefox, Opera or any other browser, just give Chrome a try. 

2. I found this online, contributed by a Mafia Wars player. Just try it and see if it works.

Found a workaround for the locked into uptown problem... Right click on the first job and copy link, paste it in your url address box and change the job number to 2001 and story to 10 like "" - your info that follows, the tracking id and such shouldn't be changed. The problem is they're sending you to storyId=9 and job=2019 to 2024 - which should be later in the mobile chapter... My guess is someone screwed up when they fooled around with the next chapters.
When you do this, you'll have to complete a different set of jobs for uptown and you'll have to do it every time you log into mobile until you can get to boardwalk then go back to uptown.
3. Go to this site :
   Type : in the address bar of the iPhone you see on screen.

These methods are not guaranteed to work for everyone. One could try and see his luck.

I would be grateful if people using the above techniques report here whether it worked with them.
Also, kindly report if is working normally for you guys.

Windows Phone 7 Development for Absolute Beginners

With the Windows Phone 7 already released and gaining a steady sales figure, there has been a scurry among developers and amateurs to develop applications for the Windows Phone 7. Microsoft has a big power when it comes to marketing and trade pundits believe that it will end up selling a larger volume of its phones than it is selling at the moment (which is not too flattering).

If you are interested in developing applications but do not know much about Silverlight or C#, then Microsoft presents a series of videos to help you through their Channel9 network on MSDN. These videos are for absolute beginners but could be used by professionals to brush up their knowledge.

The description on the website reads :

This video series will help aspiring Windows Phone 7 developers get started. We'll start off with the basics and work our way up so in a few hours, you will know enough to build simple WP7 applications, such as a GPS aware note taking application.  We'll walk you through getting the tools, knowing what an if statement is, to using the GPS built into the phone and much more!
Check out the videos, starting with the introduction video by clicking on the link below.

Life of a Software Engineer

Pays damn good. Life Sucks!….Software Engineer

Here is an story I had read quite long ago at that interested me. The website is about a place where professionals can put up their job experiences, whether good or bad(though it is often the later!), for everyone to read. Most people you find here are complaining and this is no surprise. The article quoted below was written long back in the year 2001 and probably doesn't hold true in today's IT world. But it still makes for a good reading. Read it below...

Computer Virus Leads to $20 Million Scam Targeting Pianist Composer

A noted pianist and a composer in The United States has been duped over the years to a tune of $ 20 million by a computer technician citing virus problem! The musician had approached a New York based computer technician named Vickram Bedi and his girlfriend Helga Invarsdottir to get his laptop problem solved which he guess might have been caused due to virus. The technician duo manipulated the gullible musician citing some devious group being behind them and The U.S. Government.

The ridiculous thing is that the musician bought their stupid idea and allowed them to leech him for exorbitant amounts, which are now being touted to be anywhere between $ 6-20 million.

The culprits have been caught while they were preparing to leave on a trip to Iceland. If convicted (which they most probably will be), they will each get a jail term of 25 years!

Google Chrome Offline Installer

Google Chrome download can become a mess for people with very slow internet connections. This is because the chrome setup that you install from the official website is actually the online installer. The size of the file is very small too (~555 KB). Once you finish installing and run the setup, the application connects to the internet and downloads additional files which will then install the main application. For slow internet connections this may not be desirable. That is, downloading the full software(~23.3MB) using a download accelerator may seem a better option.

For such people, below is the link to the Google site for Google Chrome's offline installer. It is also called as the standalone package/installer.

Breaking News - Michael Jackson's New Song

Michael Jackson's new album entitled 'Michael'
Sony has released a never before heard song from none other than the late Michael Jackson. This song is entitled as 'Breaking News' and is included in the official album due release next month. Sony has released this full song as a teaser to the album.

The album itself is shrouded in controversy as some members of Michael Jackson's family and close friends are claiming that the sound is not that of Michael Jackson's. But Sony claims that a lot many experts and artists have confirmed that the song is indeed authentic and that the vocals are indeed Michael Jackson's.

If you are a Michael Jackson fan you will surely like the song. The song is essentially a good one with beats and chorus that will get you hooked. The song somewhat reminds of  his 'Tabloid Junkie' from his History album as it has a similar overtone. The song has Jackson trademarks throughout the song but in these days of the digital world, it is possible to easily digitally modify any music.

What ever is the case, Breaking News will surely turn out to become a hit with the fans. Listen to the song and decide for yourself. The song will be on air on the official website for only a week. So hear it till you have a chance. I have already heard it over a dozen times!

Web Browser Bookmark

If you are just interesting in knowing about only web browser bookmarks then skip to the later parts

In literal sense, bookmarks are page keepers that distinguish the page from others. In most cases, when reading a book, we put page markers/bookmarks as shown in the picture on the left so as to be able to easily come back to that page for future reference or to resume after a break.
