ATP Poll: Who is In-Charge of Pakistan today?

ATP published an online poll on 27th July 2008 with question 'Who is in-charge of Pakistan today?'. By this time, they have been received 308 votes and the result is very much interesting. According to result, no one believe that actually our honorable prime minister is in-charge of Pakistan today; as per law he should be. So, who is puppeteer?

UIT Poster Session Spring 2008

I still remember the time when we had long discussion with Sir. Parkash Lohana (HOD of Computer Science) and Mr. Iftikhar Mubasshir (Coordinator of First Poster Session). The idea of Poster Session; an event in which students demostrate projects in front of people from industry, was rejected by other departements due to unknown reason (usually we give it name 'FEAR'). Mr. Parkash was the one who initated this idea but later was not feeling comfortable to execute only for CS department. Any how, he agreed and gave us permission to organize first Poster Session . The interesting part of the story is ... after organizng two successful such events... other departements showed their wish to be part of this event too! poor decision maker! Well, the fifth episode of this event is going to happen tomorrow. Everyone from industry and/or academia is invited to evaluate students' projects. Hire them if you need, appreciate them if you like, guide them if you feel. In Poster Session

Voice Chat: MSN vs Skype vs Google Talk

One of my cousin is leaving living in UAE with her family and like many other people and we were using MSN as voice chat. Usually in office, we are using  use Skype to communicate with foreign clients. So, I asked her to install Skype and give it a try. Fortunately, she also having Google Talk on her PC so we though to do a test for all these three. First we gave a try to MSN: not good, voice quality is so bad... even I was not able to hear correctly. Skype: Voice quality was good ... a bit louder sound, but again, I was not able to hear correctly due to clipping voice. Google Talk: today's evening winner! Google talk has been giving good voice quality and no discontinuity during voice chat! its like we are talking on phone. Update: thanks Huma for identifying typo.
