We were off to goa this weekend, but as the luck have it we were just 90 KM away from goa and there comes the news of floods and land slides. We are stranded on NH17 with no where to go. just to top it off our bus left us stranded in middle the road. We got a lorry which took jsut 500 rupees for 3 KM of ride..

I thank you for coming down daily. It would be great if you let me know who are you so that i will know more about my readers.

I have got another BuGle. For more details on Bugle Please click here.

The image is snapshot of my share portfolio in Google’s website, which is simple and easy to use. But they have got this problem of inserting bugs in their code. If you look at the three red boxes in the image (right click and open image in new window/tab) . Market price(MP) is calculates as Last Price(LP) X Shares(S). So for Suzlon MP should have been 89.50 X 30 = 2,685.00 but according to google its 2,644.50. Google thanks for your new age mathematics.

Guys I really respect you and all the application that you make. But this type of faux-pas is seldom pardoned. You need a really good Quality Control guys at your office. And please sure that the quality guy and developer dont meet face to face. Tha you will have a really robust application
