Celebrating Birthday

Yesterday I celebrated my birthday with friends and colleagues. It was totally an amazing day and at the end of it I was dead tired.

It all started at night before my birthday. My mobile phone kept on ringing for 45 minutes with calls and messages. First one to wish me, was my Sir who taught me at CMC from Bangalore and from then on I was just responded to the wishes for the next 45 minutes. I had to go office next day, wanted to sleep but couldn't. But I am lucky that so many friends remembered my birthday. The last call ended at 12:47 AM and then I finally slept.

In the morning I woke up and again saw 6 messages were there. I got ready for office took my cab and came to office. Here I was just happy to see people coming to my workstation and wishing me. Then it was just a usual work and in the evening my team members ordered cake from 'Sugar N Spice' and we celebrated my birthday. Here are some pics.

They tried to put the cake on my face.
And then in the evening I celebrated my birthday with college friends. I invited them at the famous restaurant in Green Park. We all were meeting together after very very long time, so we were very excited. So we all met at 7:45 and enjoyed the moment together remembering our college life as well as talking about our current life which is so boring now. There are some pics and you will see how much we enjoyed:

Thank God!! They forget to gave me birthday bumps!!!!

Remembering IDs and Passwords

It seems like every time I want to do something online it requires a password. Is there a good way to keep track of all the passwords I use when on the Internet?

I am amazed at the amount of websites that need user IDs and passwords. It just getting difficult and difficult to remember all these IDs and passwords. I try to use similar IDs and passwords for various websites to recall them easily. But still somehow they are different as all sites have different criteria for selecting IDs and Passwords.

One thing that come out of this, that the websites should have a common/unique way of selecting IDs and passwords. Or there should be some kind of program or software which can help us recalling IDs and passwords for different websites. If you guys know any program like that do inform me or if engineers are working on such software.

I just hate to click on forget my password and then getting another password which is very long and without any sense. The problem is why we use so many websites. Everybody has 2-3 email Ids. Why use so many when we can check mails on one ID. Giving only one ID to people we know. Google has done remarkably good job as it use only one single Gmail ID to use all its applications.

Well, Engineers! I have a task for you.
