Microsoft Silverlight is a programmable web browser plugin,programming model for developing and distributing rich internet applications that use graphics, animations or video within the .NET framework.Formally known by Windows Presentation Foundation Everywhere. WPF/E.
What is WPF/E ?

* WPF/E stands for Windows Presentation Foundation Everywhere.
* WPF/E is directly related to XAML.
* WPF/E provides a consistent programming model for building applications and provides a clear separation between the UI and the business logic.
* WPF/E is the new graphic engine for the Windows Vista operating system,and also available for installation on Windows XP SP2 and Windows Server 2003.
* WPF/E supports rich graphics, 2D,3D applications....

The Silverlight plug-in is both cross-browser and cross-platform for delivering the next generation of .NET 3.0 framework based rich online media content.
Silverlight applications are delivered to a browser in a text-based markup language called XAML(Extensible Application Markup Language) combination with Javascript.

Silverlight 2's biggest change from Silverlight 1.0 is the inclusion of a compact version of the .NET Framework, complete with the .NET Framework 3.0 Common Language Runtime.

Silverlight supports the display of high-definition video files,cost effective advanced streaming,high- resulation interactivity with deep zoom.

Silverlight is being taken as a competitor to Adobe's Flash.Where as Flash’s main focus is on animation, vector graphics and now videos. Silverlight can handle vector images, video’s, animations and basically anything else Flash can do.

If you just want to view Silverlight content then all you need is the Silverlight plugin. Similar to the flash plugin it’s a small file (1.4 MB) that you simply download and install to get Silverlight content working in your browser.

If you’re planning on developing applications using Silverlight then there are a few other things you will need.

1.Expression Blend 2 – This is where the Silverlight apps are made. Its a user interface design tool for creating rich graphical interfaces for web and desktop applications.

Free Download Nagraj Comics

It was to remember the days gone by when me and my friends used to love to read Nagraj, Super Commando Dhruv and their friends Comics.I have fond memories of Raj comic and its super hero Nag Rag was my favorite amongst Sabu,Chacha Chudhri, billu, pinki n more.
Nagraj is the flag bearer and the most popular hero of RAJ COMICS. Nagraj is avowed to wipe out terrorism from the face of the Earth.Nagraj is the raj comics first hero.

I don’t know how many Indian children read them today.Archies and foreign superheroes seem more famous and dear to them.
In those Nagraj, Dhruv comics we could feel our india,where they had supernatural powers from divine beings but were equally settled in the business world.That's mixing Indian tradition with contemporaneity and that's what happening today.
Here is a big collection of Raj comics for download.

How To Reduce Windows Vista Boot Time

Most of the boot time of our systems depends on drivers and on the HDD speed. if we try updating all of our drivers and using defrag tools that optimize boot speed. Maybe the boot time will decrease.I found a simple tip to reduce vista boot time with Advanced Boot Option.

If you computer has a dual core processor or higher CPU , then you may try this small tip. By default Vista will use only one core of your processor when booting. So why not let it use all of your 2 or 4 cores? It's way easier than you might think! With this, what you do is that you change the number of Processors that will be used during the boot up time.It will only increase the number of processor cores which would be involved in the process.

Step One: Open msconfg.

Step Two: Go to the Boot tab and click Advanced.

Step Three: Change the number of processors to the numbers of cores in your processor.

That's all there is to it =)
To reverse the change, simply uncheck the Number of processors box.
