Share your Internet Connection using Virtual Router

I just found a very good software that can be used for sharing any internet connection. The software is Virtual Router and is a free, open source, software based router to be used for PC's running Windows 7 or Windows Server 2008 R2. By using this Virtual Router, you can wirelessly share any internet connection such as Wifi, LAN, Cable Modem, Cellular, etc with any wifi enabled device such as your laptop, smartphones, iphone, wireless printer, etc These wifi enabled devices connect to Virtual Router just like any other access point and the connection uses Wifi Protected Access II (WPA2) encryption and should be quite secured.

For more information about this software, you may visit this link

I Wish You Enough !

I received these email from my brother, and I would like share it here.  

To  all my love ones, friends and visitor's of this blog,  I  wish you Enough !  


I  wish you Enough !

Recently  I overheard a Father and daughter in their last moments together at  the airport. They had announced the departure.

Standing near  the security gate, they hugged and the Father said, 'I love you, and I  wish you enough.'

The daughter replied, 'Dad, our life together  has been more than enough. Your love is all I ever needed. I wish you  enough, too, Dad.'

They  kissed and the daughter left. The Father walked over to the window  where I was seated. Standing there I could see he wanted and needed to  cry. I tried not to intrude on his privacy, but he welcomed me in by  asking, 'Did you ever say good-bye to someone knowing it would be  forever?'

'Yes, I have,' I replied. 'Forgive me for asking, but  why is this a forever good-bye?'.

'I am old, and she lives so  far away. I have challenges ahead and the reality is - the next trip  back will be for my funeral,' he said..

'When you were saying  good-bye, I heard you say, 'I wish you enough.' May I ask what that  means?'

He began to smile. 'That's a wish that has been handed  down from other generations. My parents used to say it to everyone.'  He paused a moment and looked up as if trying to remember it in  detail, and he smiled even more. 'When we said, 'I wish you enough,'  we were wanting the other person to have a life filled with just  enough good things to sustain them.' Then turning toward me, he shared  the following as if he were reciting it from memory.

I wish you  enough sun to keep your attitude bright no matter how grey the day may  appear.

I  wish you enough rain to appreciate the sun even more.

I wish  you enough happiness to keep your spirit alive and  everlasting.

I wish you enough pain so that even the smallest  of joys in life may appear bigger.

I wish you enough gain to  satisfy your wanting.
I wish you enough loss to appreciate all that  you possess.

I wish you enough hellos to get you through the  final good-bye.

He  then began to cry and walked away.

They say it takes a minute  to find a special person, an hour to appreciate them, a day to love  them; but then an entire life to forget them.

Take  Time To Live

To  all my friends and loved ones,
I  wish you Enough !

Ten things to learn from Japan Earthquake/Tsunami/Nuclear reactors

This post was posted in Yahoo Group India: trainers_forum and was originally posted by PK. Seshadri at 3:34 pm on Mar 23, 2011.

According to Mr. PK Seshadri, he has been working for Japan Airlines in the Gulf region for seven years that allows him to have an inside ring view into the Japanese lifestyles, management, culture and above all the courage in face of calamity.

Not a single visual of chest-beating or wild grief. Sorrow itself has been elevated.

Disciplined queues for water and groceries. Not a rough word or a crude gesture.

The incredible architects, for instance. Buildings swayed but didn’t fall.

People bought only what they needed for the present, so everybody could get something.

No looting in shops. No honking and no overtaking on the roads. Just understanding.

Fifty workers stayed back to pump sea water in the N-reactors. How will they ever be repaid?

Restaurants cut prices. An unguarded ATM is left alone. The strong cared for the weak.

The old and the children, everyone knew exactly what to do. And they did just that.

They showed magnificent restraint in the bulletins. No silly reporters. Only calm reportage.

When the power went off in a store, people put things back on the shelves and left quietly!

7 reasons not to mess with children

I received this from my email, it's so hilarious and would love to share it.

A little girl was talking to her teacher about whales...

The teacher said it was physically impossible for a whale to swallow a
human because even though it was a very large mammal its throat was very

The little girl stated that Jonah was swallowed by a whale.

Irritated, the teacher reiterated that a whale could not swallow a human;
it was physically impossible.

The little girl said, 'When I get to heaven I will ask Jonah'.

The teacher asked, 'What if Jonah went to hell?'

The little girl replied, 'Then you ask him'.

A Kindergarten teacher was observing her classroom of children while they
were drawing. She would occasionally walk around to see each child's work.

As she got to one little girl who was working diligently, she asked what
the drawing was.

The girl replied, 'I'm drawing God.'

The teacher paused and said, 'But no one knows what God looks like.'

Without missing a beat, or looking up from her drawing, the girl replied,
'They will in a minute.'

One day a little girl was sitting and watching her mother do the dishes at
the kitchen sink. She suddenly noticed that her mother had several strands
of white hair sticking out in contrast on her brunette head.

She looked at her mother and inquisitively asked, 'Why are some of your
hairs white, Mom?'

Her mother replied, 'Well, every time that you do something wrong and make
me cry or unhappy, one of my hairs turns white.'

The little girl thought about this revelation for a while and then said,
'Momma, how come ALL of grandma's hairs are white?'

The children had all been photographed, and the teacher was trying to persuade
them each to buy a copy of the group picture.

'Just think how nice it will be to look at it when you are all grown up
and say, 'There's Jennifer, she's a lawyer,' or 'That's Michael, He's a

A small voice at the back of the room rang out, 'And there's the teacher,
she's dead.'

A teacher was giving a lesson on the circulation of the blood. Trying to
make the matter clearer, she said, 'Now, class, if I stood on my head,
the blood, as you know, would run into it, and I would turn red in the

'Yes,' the class said.

'Then why is it that while I am standing upright in the ordinary position
the blood doesn't run into my feet?'

A little fellow shouted,

'Cause your feet ain't empty.'

The children were lined up in the cafeteria of a Catholic elementary school
for lunch. At the head of the table was a large pile of apples. The nun
made a note, and posted on the apple tray:

'Take only ONE . God is watching.'

Moving further along the lunch line, at the other end of the table was
a large pile of chocolate chip cookies.

A child had written a note, 'Take all you want. God is watching the apples.'

45 Lessons in Life

Written by Regina Brett, 90 years old, of the Plain Dealer, Cleveland , Ohio .

"To celebrate growing older, I once wrote the 45 lessons life taught me. It is the most requested column I've ever written.

My odometer rolled over to 90 in August, so here is the column once more:

1. Life isn't fair, but it's still good.

2. When in doubt, just take the next small step.

3. Life is too short to waste time hating anyone.

4. Your job won't take care of you when you are sick. Your friends and parents will. Stay in touch.

5. Pay off your credit cards every month.

6. You don't have to win every argument. Agree to disagree.

7. Cry with someone. It's more healing than crying alone.

8. It's OK to get angry with God. He can take it.

9. Save for retirement starting with your first paycheck.

10. When it comes to chocolate, resistance is futile.

11. Make peace with your past so it won't screw up the present.

12. It's OK to let your children see you cry.

13. Don't compare your life to others. You have no idea what their journey is all about.

14. If a relationship has to be a secret, you shouldn't be in it.

15. Everything can change in the blink of an eye. But don't worry; God never blinks.

16. Take a deep breath. It calms the mind.

17. Get rid of anything that isn't useful, beautiful or joyful.

18. Whatever doesn't kill you really does make you stronger.

19. It's never too late to have a happy childhood. But the second one is up to you and no one else.

20. When it comes to going after what you love in life, don't take no for an answer.

21. Burn the candles, use the nice sheets, wear the fancy lingerie. Don't save it for a special occasion. Today is special.

22. Over prepare, then go with the flow.

23. Be eccentric now. Don't wait for old age to wear purple.

24. The most important sex organ is the brain.

25. No one is in charge of your happiness but you.

26. Frame every so-called disaster with these words 'In five years, will this matter?'

27. Always choose life.

28. Forgive everyone everything.

29. What other people think of you is none of your business.

30. Time heals almost everything. Give time time.

31. However good or bad a situation is, it will change.

32. Don't take yourself so seriously. No one else does.

33. Believe in miracles.

34. God loves you because of who God is, not because of anything you did or didn't do.

35. Don't audit life. Show up and make the most of it now.

36. Growing old beats the alternative -- dying young.

37. Your children get only one childhood.

38. All that truly matters in the end is that you loved.

39. Get outside every day. Miracles are waiting everywhere.

40. If we all threw our problems in a pile and saw everyone else's, we'd grab ours back.

41. Envy is a waste of time. You already have all you need.

42. The best is yet to come...

43. No matter how you feel, get up, dress up and show up.

44. Yield.

45. Life isn't tied with a bow, but it's still a gift."

The URL is not valid and can not be loaded

Last night, my computer acted strangely. I couldn't get to any internet sites using my firefox browser. All I got was a blank screen with a pop up screen that said " The URL is not valid and can not be loaded". I tried to use Internet explorer but same thing happen.

I tried to disable the firefox toolbar extensions to see if the extension was causing the issue, but the problem still persist ie. I still got the invalid URL issue. So what I did was to use the System Restore utility of Windows and voila the problem was fixed. I guess, it must have been a spyware or something that had caused this problem, but no matter what it is, Windows System Restore utility is a great utility to put back your computer back to it's previous working condition.

Travel Cancellation

I met a friend last week who told me that their supposed vacation trip to Scotland was cancelled due to the huge amounts of snow. He had book a trip to Scotland for his family (wife, 2 kids and himself) for 2 nights, but then the bad weather did not allow them to get to the train station for the 7:00 a.m. departure as the roads were impassable and it was just too dangerous to travel that they did not dare to risk it. So he lost about £400 for his prepaid trip expenses to Scotland.

You see, our vacation travel plans can be derailed for a variety of reasons. Once we have paid our deposit or full payment, what will happen if?
• We cancel our trip because one of our travel companion can not make it as he or she got sick?
• Our tour operator, airline or cruise line suddenly declares bankruptcy?
• suddenly our visa application was delayed
• Our return flight home was delayed for a few days due to bad weather

Above are just a few and there are a lot of possible reasons that may affect our travel plans. For these reasons, it would be a good idea to get a trip cancellation travel insurance that can protect us from the costs and inconveniences associated with bankruptcies, flight delays, tour cancellations, lost luggage and lost hotel reservations. A lengthy trip delay can cause us unexpected food and lodging expenses.

As for my friend, as he did not avail of any travel insurance package, he said, that he just thinks of it as losing a train journey and 2 night’s hotel accommodation rather than losing £400?

Five (5) lessons about the way we treat people

1 - First Important Lesson - Cleaning Lady.  

During my second month of college, our professor 

Gave us a pop quiz. I was a conscientious student

And had breezed through the questions until I read

The last one:

"What is the first name of the woman who cleans the school?"

Surely this was some kind of joke. I had seen the 

Cleaning woman several times. She was tall,

Dark-haired and in her 50's, but how would I know her name?

I handed in my paper, leaving the last question

Blank. Just before class ended, one student asked if 

The last question would count toward our quiz grade.

"Absolutely, " said the professor.. "In your careers,

You will meet many people.  All are significant.. They

Deserve your attention and care, even if all you do 

Is smile and say "hello.."

I've never forgotten that lesson.. I also learned her

Name was Dorothy. 

2. - Second Important Lesson - Pickup in the Rain 

One night, at 11:30 p.m., an older African American

Woman was standing on the side of an Alabama highway

Trying to endure a lashing rain storm. Her car had

Broken down and she desperately needed a ride.

Soaking wet, she decided to flag down the next car. 

A young white man stopped to help her, generally

Unheard of in those conflict-filled 1960's. The man

Took her to safety, helped her get assistance and

Put her into a taxicab.

She seemed to be in a big hurry, but wrote down his

Address and thanked him. Seven days went by and a

Knock came on the man's door. To his surprise, a

Giant console color TV was delivered to his home. A 

Special note was attached..

It read:

"Thank you so much for assisting me on the highway

The other night. The rain drenched not only my

Clothes, but also my spirits.  Then you came along.. 

Because of you, I was able to make it to my dying

Husband's' bedside just before he passed away... God

Bless you for helping me and unselfishly serving



Mrs. Nat King Cole. 

3 - Third Important Lesson - Always remember those

Who serve. 

In the days when an ice cream sundae cost much less,

A 10-year-old boy entered a hotel coffee shop and

Sat at a table. A waitress put a glass of water in 

Front of him.

"How much is an ice cream sundae?" he asked. 

"Fifty cents," replied the waitress.

The little boy pulled his hand out of his pocket and

Studied the coins in it.

"Well, how much is a plain dish of ice cream?" he inquired.

By now more people were waiting for a table and the

Waitress was growing impatient.. 

"Thirty-five cents," she brusquely replied.

The little boy again counted his coins.

"I'll have the plain ice cream," he said.

The waitress brought the ice cream, put the bill on

The table and walked away The boy finished the ice

Cream, paid the cashier and left..  When the waitress

Came back, she began to cry as she wiped down the 

Table.  There, placed neatly beside the empty dish,

Were two nickels and five pennies..

You see,  he couldn't  have the sundae, because he had

To have enough left to leave her a tip. 

4 - Fourth Important Lesson. - The obstacle in Our Path. 

In ancient times, a King had a boulder placed on a

Roadway.  Then he hid himself and watched to see if

Anyone would remove the huge rock.  Some of the

King's' wealthiest merchants and courtiers came by 

And simply walked around it..  Many loudly blamed the

King for not keeping the roads clear, but none did

Anything about getting the stone out of the way.

Then a peasant came along carrying a load of 

Vegetables.  Upon approaching the boulder, the

peasant laid down his burden and tried to move the

stone to the side of the road.  After much pushing

and straining, he finally succeeded. After the 

peasant picked up his load of vegetables, he noticed

a purse lying in the road where the boulder had

been. The purse contained many gold coins and a note

from the King indicating that the gold was for the 

person who removed the boulder from the roadway.  The

peasant learned what many of us never understand!

Every obstacle presents an opportunity to improve

our condition. 

5 - Fifth Important Lesson - Giving When it Counts... 

Many years ago, when I worked as a volunteer at a

hospital, I got to know a little girl named Liz who 

was suffering from a rare & serious disease.  Her only

chance of recovery appeared to be a blood

transfusion from her 5-year old brother, who had

miraculously survived the same disease and had 

developed the antibodies needed to combat the

illness.  The doctor explained the situation to her

little brother, and asked the little boy if he would

be willing to give his blood to his sister. 

I saw him hesitate for only a moment before taking a

deep breath and saying, "Yes I'll do it if it will save

 her."  As the transfusion progressed, he lay in bed

 next to his sister and smiled, as we all did, seeing 

 the color returning to her cheek. Then his face

 grew pale and his smile faded.

He looked up at the doctor and asked with a

trembling voice, "Will I start to die right away". 

Being young, the little boy had misunderstood the

doctor; he thought he was going to have to give his

sister all of his blood in order to save her.
