Working with Idiots Can Kill You!

Idiots in the office are just as hazardous to your health as cigarettes, caffeine or greasy food, an eye-opening new study reveals. In fact, those dopes can kill you!

Stress is one of the top causes of heart attacks — and working with stupid people on a daily basis is one of the deadliest forms of stress, according to researchers at Sweden’s Lindbergh University Medical Center.

The author of the study, Dr. Dagmar Andersson, says her team studied 500 heart attack patients, and were puzzled to find 62 percent had relatively few of the physical risk factors commonly blamed for heart attacks.

GIF Wars: The Power of GIFs

It seems that, Facebook is no longer the ‘only’ star of the online social network, it got company! Guess who is the competitor? Not a very tough question actually, the answer is Google’s new product Google+. Although Google hasn’t shared Google+’s user counts, but it is estimated that the total user count already surpasses 10 millions! It seems that, after the failure of Orkut, Wave and Buzz, Google has finally arrived in the social arena with the proper weapon.

The competition between Google+ and Facebook has become the important topic for debate now a days. Although nobody is killing anybody yet, but there will be some bloody blows exchanged in near future. To make it more lively and pictorial, Google+ users (or may be Google itself – who knows!) has already flaming the war by releasing a series of funny but attacking GIF images. Those images are floating around on the Internet (read Google+) on daily basis. This “GIF War” is may be a tomfoolery, but after seeing the images, I had to admit that those are really humorous as well as brilliant. Going on a war and at the same time advertising the Google+ – it is indeed a great idea.

BSOD at Schiphol Airport

I was going through the photos of my mobile phone, and I found a photo that I was totally forgot to share on my blog! This photo was taken on April 26, 2011 (Tuesday) at Schiphol Airport (Amsterdam). I was leaving Amsterdam for Dhaka at that very day. At approximately 4 PM, after passing the immigration post, I saw that one of the big flight monitor was under BSOD attack!

Lucid Lynx: Mockup

Well… Everybody in the Ubuntu world is pretty much excited about the new design of upcoming Lucid Lynx. Lots of discussion is going on. Some says the new design is pretty Macish, some are in opposition of putting the maximize-minimize-close buttons in the left corner, some says the button chronology should be in a way so that the close button should be in the either corners, and so on. Lots of propositions are taking places. So why shouldn’t I propose something? Who knows, may be Canonical will find something important from my design! (If they dare to choose mine 😀 )

Here goes my (insane!) proposal. Look at the following window of  newly designed Lucid Lynx.

I’ve just put the maximize-minimize-close buttons at the bottom! Well, Mac has their button at the upper left and Windows has in the upper right. So by following on of the architecture implies that Ubuntu doesn’t have anything of its own! Here goes the identity of Ubuntu. Again in case of usability, when we scroll the window, it is always in the direction of top to bottom. So When we reach at the bottom, we move our cursor again to the top to close (or maximize or minimize) the window. Isn’t it be easier to perform those tasks by not moving the cursor to a 180 degree opposite direction? I think so. And it would be a pretty easy method to perform those tasks. Though it needs some practice.

At the upper left corner a logo of the program can be placed, and the title can be placed at the centre of  title bar. May be a click on the logo will show a text menu of maximize-minimize-close-move-etc.

So what do you think? Don’t hesitate to tell me, How insane is this design! 😉
