How to attach files to your messages in Yahoo groups?
I am finding some members of the yahoo group are attaching the files to their messages. The attachments
are not forwarded to the destination email particularly in the " Daily Digest " mode. For instance the file attached
with a recent email has the following default description is mentioned at the end of the email when it is opened by
accessing the group Home page.
If you wish to see that your file is accessed by Member, the best way is to not to attach, but
to use the Files option [also called Files sharing ]on the left hand side index of Home page in Yahoo group [http://groups.yahoo.com/group/---------]
How to proceed: 1. Click on the Files option 2. Click
Browse to select a file to upload. If you do not see the Browse button, your browser does not support file uploading. 3.
Give description of your file 4. Enable [ Check mark ] to Send a message to the group announcing this file. I have
followed this method. I have first converted into pdf file My blog posted on http://suryanarayana.com/blog.html Then
uploaded pdf copy of this blog on http://groups.yahoo.com/group/rotary3150 Please check Files option
to open this file. The Best Benefits: (1) Some Internet Service
Providers [ISP] prohibit to forward attachments to the emails. Though your text shows that you have attached a file it might
not be received due to technical reasons. You may write in your email advising the recipient to access the file in FILES folder
in the yahoo group (2) You can park your file in the group as long as you want or till the purpose is fulfilled. (3)
You can opt to send a notification to all the members about your file sharing instead of your sending a separate message.
We all know Print screen (often abbreviated Prt Scr, Print Scrn, Prt Scn, Prt Sc or Prnt Scrn) is a key
present on most keyboards, typically situated in the same section as the break key and scroll lock key. In Microsoft Windows,
pressing print screen will capture the entire screen, while pressing the alt key in combination with print screen will capture
the currently selected window. The captured image can then be pasted into an editing program such as a word processor, email,
or graphics software.
Recently I started using Faststone Capture which is a screenshot capturing utility
with advanced features that can capture the entire desktop, individual windows or objects as scrolling areas offscreen . I
liked this utility as it is a powerful, lightweight, yet full-featured screen capture tool that allows to easily capture and
annotate anything on the screen including windows, objects, menus, full screen, rectangular/freehand regions and even scrolling
We can choose to send captures to editor, file, clipboard, printer, email, Word/PowerPoint document or upload them to
any website. Editing tools include annotating (texts, arrowed lines, highlights), resizing, cropping, sharpening, watermarking,
applying edge effects and many more. It also allows you to record screen activities and sound into highly compressed video
files. Other features include global hotkeys, automatic filename generation, support for external editors, a color picker,
a screen magnifier and a screen ruler.
By using this utility, I have captured the adjoining
"Capture Panel" image from http://www.faststone.org
This is by far my favorite screen capturing program
(I compared no less than 6 others before writing in my blog). It is powerful, well designed, and uses a very small amount
of memory. The latest version of this utility has become a shareware [available for $19.95 for lifetime license],
To download the last freeware version (5.3) click or copy & paste the link http://www.divshare.com/download/1448754-6ce
You will be able to download a zip file 1.3MB size. If you have problem, you can ask firstname.lastname@example.org to get
a freeware from me.
Dr. APJ Abdul Kalam be conferred as Goodwill Ambassador of India
I am an ardent admirer of the former President of India Dr APJ Abdul Kalam who celebrated his 77th Birthday
today [15 October, 2008]. On this occassion I would like to recall my online experience with him. I have sent an eMail to
invite him to be the Chief Guest of Rotary Club Career Event [21 September, 2008 ] intended for HR aspirants in Hyderabad
in India. Though he could not attend this event, what surprised me and delighted was his quick acknowledgement and reply expressing
his inability to attend due to his pre-occupations. Great and busy people must emulate this quality.
I have just read and signed the online petition "Dr.Kalam - Can be Goodwill Ambassador to Govt
of India/United Nations" hosted on the web by PetitionOnline.com, which provides free online hosting of public petitions
for responsible public advocacy.
I think you might agree, too. If you can spare a moment, please take a look, and consider signing
yourself at: http://www.PetitionOnline.com/gwilla/ You will receive a confirmatory eMail upon posting your views.
I would appreciate if you could
add your comments at the end of this blog as a token of your acknowledgement and recommend your contacts to browse and

GREETINGS on the occassion of 62nd India Inpendence Day.
I have read in one of the
Magazines: "India as a Nation full of enormous potential but it needs to fix some crucial problems. India could do well
without the slogans such as India shining or Incredible India since problems exists in health care, child malnutrition and
poor infrastructure in many parts of the country. Our work for growth and youth extends from the doorsteps of the independence
handed over to us.
So is the case with Rotary movement. Today I participated on behalf
of Rotary Club of Secunderabad west [ http://www.rcsw.in ] in the Celebrations in a school in the outskirts of Hyderabad. The school is run for economically backward students. We
have provided a water bore-well in the premises. Stationary with sweet packets were presented to the tiny-tots who were delighted
with the gifts. The cultural programme after the flag hoisting was a real visual treat.
I have also participated
in Pratidhawni programme recorded on 13th August and telecast at 8-20 pm today by ETV2 -the popular private tv channel in
telugu. The subject was Bharat- Bhavita [Future of India ] The discussion programme was with powerful speakers in the lead
followed by the views of persons like me. My daughter has also taken part in this programme. I consider this as a great opportunity
to me to listen to enlightened speakers and experience participating in a tv programme
