64 Bit Environment

From past several months I am using Windows XP 64 Bit version operating system on my laptop having AMD Turion 64 X2 TL50 (in Intel words- “1.6 GHz 64 bit dual core mobile processor”) master mind underneath. Luckily I got 64 bit driver support for all my hardware (I think, 64 bit days has silently begun) components. The operating system is stable enough and quite fast too (when compared to Windows XP Professional 32 bit Edition). It is true that there are very few 64 bit version software available for use, but as a dot net programmer what ever I need, I have those 64 bit enabled. The operating system even allows running 32 bit applications under protected memory environment but few are pretty much incompatible with this pact like Norton Antivirus, Comodo Personal Firewall…etc. specially, system software/utilities which are very much dependent on operating system API calls and if these software/utilities are of 32 bit, then there is a clear disagreement with 64 bit operating system. We just need proper ‘bit’ version software to smoothly run with 64 bit windows environment. One thing I clearly noticed that, application (whether they are of 64 bit or 32 bit) under XP Pro 64 bit, were working quite faster than usual 32 bit version.
Though we have less application support (choices), whatever is compatible and of 64 bit version are performing very well. At least a dot net developer can happily code and debug his application along with enjoying faster compilation and launching huge visual studio help file in parallel.
I should thank my geeky best friend Nandakumar S, who downloaded Windows XP Professional 64 Bit version software only for me.

SrushtiSoft - An Official Blog Hosted

Recently a marketing person voluntarily approached me and showed interest to promote Srushti’s products to his existing customers. I happily showcased all products and showed SrushitSoft website. After some time he sat to browse SrushtiSoft, he sharply looked at ‘Blog’ link and clicked it. It promptly brought him to this blog page. He scrolled the web page up and down and asked me
‘I am sorry; I am not able to make out any connection between these posts and SrushtiSoft products…’
I had no good answer for his question. I had to struggle little to convey him that this blog touches other areas along with SrushtiSoft technology and that was the instance I realized the need of separate blog for SrushtiSoft.


After few hours of stretched work on blogspot web site, I am pleased to announce new SrushtiSoft blog, where you will find only Srushti’s technology, products, plans and progress posts. I request you to subscribe to this blog too and feel free to comment on it.

As you see, the current blog is renamed from “Srushti” to “Pavan Gayakwad”, since this will be more on my thoughts, technology and dreams (in short non-senses)

SkyDrive

Online storage is not a new idea, what’s new is Microsoft’s SkyDrive online product (www.skydrive.live.com) initiated under the Windows Live umbrella. Being an admirer of Microsoft products I register here too. We can use our existing hotmail/live ID for login and start using 500 MB free space which comes by default. If you are looking for getting more space, currently I didn’t see any such upgrade option but you might expect ‘purchase’ link in coming days. We can share folders and files with everyone on internet or only with our friends or secure it for private use.
You can browse my public folders here
https://cid-29f7a129fc6ad7aa.skydrive.live.com/home.aspx
Yes! The URL is hard (in fact impossible) to remember. It would have been more impressive if we could replace the puzzled alphanumeric characters with our hotmail/live ID like this pavan.gayakwad.skydrive.live.com isn’t it? I don’t think that Microsoft hasn’t thought about it, I am just wondering what stopped them doing this. Anyways, internet users have more than one option, so it’s easy for them (us) to look for an alternate free service provider who can satisfy their (our) expected features list. Very few stick to their favorite company products though they suffer from lack of facilities. Now a day internet world is working on “More you offer for free, More popular you will be” trend and this certainly made internet usage more popular than ever.

Welcome, Dear Visitor

Now, if you visit www.SrushtiSoft.com, you will see a new “green button” on the products main page with the caption “Visiting for the first time?” which gets you to the newly built web page.
After posting few (in fact 2) articles on CodeProject, my web site hit rate has increased a lot. That pushed me to create a new page which briefly and effectively talks on our goals. I just thought of having a corroborative conversation and make an attempt to induce “Srushti” worm in him/her thoughts, hoping that one day they may ping us and expect some sort of soft solution(s). Its not a strategy to attract my site visitors, In fact I am trying to provoke their thoughts and match that with our passion.
