- Two of the three have not heard of Ruby on Rails earlier !
- The two who did not have idea about RoR, were non-ISV customers
- The one who knew what RoR is was pretty much sold to RoR and had almost decided on RoR
- The two unaware prospects were excited to know what RoR is and are ready to go back to their think tank and put a solid case for RoR based solution
- The two unaware prospects, though had not heard about RoR, were keen on a open source technology based solution

I have a HTC touch (bought 1.5 years back) and its touch screen stopped working.
It was a nightmare to find the HTC service center, I spent 2 hours searching for it.
And you know why? It is in a Sony Erricson shop and I was looking for a sign of HTC!!
Any way, if you are in Pune, own a HTC and it is broken and want to give it to authorised service center, here is the address:
It is near to Hotel Tilak off Tilak Road. Search for Vishveshwar Bank near Hotel Tilak, and you'ill see Sony Erricson mobile shop, that's it!
Update:Now the shop has HTC logo on the shop name... and I switched to Nokia E71 recently!

One often needs to search mails. Available options in Outlook do give results but those need not be accurate according to semantics. For example, if I am searching for phone number of 'xyz' and fire outlook search 'xyz phone', I will get results of mails that contains words xyz and phone. This means I will get all those mails where xyz asked for someones phone, or sent someones phone. Also what if phone number is mentioned as cell or mobile ? Existing search will not be able to find it out.Omnifind Personal email search is intelligent enough (or can be "taught" to) understand above scenarios. I have tried this and am more than satisfied with the results.
