David Berkowitz - Son of Sam - .44 Caliber Killer

25.6.10
This guy is a serial killer from america who is considered as one of the most dangerous criminals ever seen. But after reading about the guys childhood and some letters written by him, i see a mentally disturbed fellow rather than a criminal. Just think of what the fellow claim is the reason for some killings "Berkowitz said that the "Sam" mentioned in the first letter was Sam Carr, his former neighbor. Berkowitz claimed that Carr's black labrador retriever, Harvey, was possessed by an ancient demon, and that it issued irresistible commands that Berkowitz must kill people. Berkowitz said he once tried to kill the dog, but was unsuccessful due to supernatural interference."

Also these two letters by the fellow is interesting too

I am deeply hurt by your calling me a wemon [sic] hater! I am not. But I am a monster. I am the "Son of Sam." I am a little brat. When father Sam gets drunk he gets mean. He beats his family. Sometimes he ties me up to the back of the house. Other times he locks me in the garage. Sam loves to drink blood. "Go out and kill," commands father Sam.

hreflang - Say what language the linked document is in.

You have an English HTML document with link,
<a href="http://www.blogger.com/foo.html">foo</a>
..where foo.html is a french document. To make the browser understand that linked document is french you can use the attribute 'hreflang'. So the html will be

<a href="http://www.blogger.com/foo.html" hreflang="fr">foo</a>


Why use this attribute? w3c says like this

"Armed with this additional knowledge, user agents should be able to avoid presenting "garbage" to the user. Instead, they may either locate resources necessary for the correct presentation of the document or, if they cannot locate the resources, they should at least warn the user that the document will be unreadable and explain the cause."

Install windows xp on modern laptops ported with windows 7 or windows vista

I just got one Acer aspire 5740 pre installed with windows 7. My job was to install windows xp and remove windows 7, simple task ..but took some time to fix it :P the problem was simple direct booting from cd ended up in a blue screen. And when i try to install from windows 7 it just blocked all 'downgrading' of windows. Alas at last i found the problem after skimming through a lot of forums, actually new laptops have SATA hard drive in AHCP mode which is not supported by Windows Xp installation CD. Luckily the SATA drives have made their provisions for backward compatibility. So i just got into the boot menu and chaged SATA mode to ATA instead of AHCP. Now XP works fine, but now i want to find some drivers for Aspire 5740 for XP, they provide only drivers for Windows 7. :(
