Resham firiri-रेशम फिरिरी

Resham Firiri

Music from the Himalayan Kingdom

If you are from Nepal, you know this song. If you have been to Nepal, you would have definitely heard this song. If you know someone from Nepal, you might probably know this song.

Resham firiri (रेशम फिरिरी) is a very popular folk song from Nepal. Young ones or elderly, village people or city dwellers, traditional, old fashioned or modern, you will hear this song in almost every occasion when Nepalese have to share happiness, sing and dance.

Lets begin. The purpose of my writing this post is to inform about this song and explore how this song reflects Nepali life and culture. Being someone from Nepal, my purpose is to inform people in other countries, though our own Nepali brothers and siters might like it as well.

Fix Nepali (Devnagari) texts display problem on Ubuntu

Everytime, I viewed contents with Nepali texts in Unicode in Ubuntu, mostly in browsers, may it be Firefox or Chrome/Chromium and even inside Libre Office applications, the texts failed to display properly.

I didn’t mind it as much. Until today, which caused problems when I had to type some serious stuffs in Nepali and it was very important to have correct display on the screen.

First, I guessed it was the encoding error and tried to change to different view for each page with Nepali (Devnagari) scripts, none of them solved the issue. Some google search also didn’t help much.

I eventually thought there is font rendering issue and decided to download and install fonts/packages manually. Continue reading “Fix Nepali (Devnagari) texts display problem on Ubuntu”

जिमेल फिशिंग नौलो तरिका (New Phishing Attack-Gmail)

हामी मध्ये धेरै ले Gmail प्रयोग गर्ने गर्दछौ। आजभोलि Gmail मा नौलो किसिमको फिसिंग आक्रमण हुने गरेको पाइएको छ । समाचारमा धेरै नआएकाले यसको बारेमा धेरैलाई जानकारी नहुन सक्छ।  यसको प्रभाव बढ्दो छ र यसले हालसम्म कति क्षति गरिसकेको छ भन्ने पनि वास्तविक जानकारी उपलब्ध छैन।  हामी चाहि यसको बारेमा जानकारी राखौ, बेलैमा चनाखो बनौ।
फिसिंग (Phishing) भनेको कुनै प्रख्यात कम्पनि वा संस्थाबाट वास्तबमै पठाएको जस्तो गरि प्राप्त हुने इमेलको माध्ययम बाट गरिने ठगि हो।  यसको मुख्य उद्देश्य नै गोपनीय व्यक्तिगत जानकारी जस्तै पासवर्ड, क्रेडिट कार्ड नम्बर चोर्नु हो जुन चोरहरु ले आफ्नो फाइदाको लागि दुरुपयोग गर्दछन।

यो वर्ष (सन् २०१७) मा भर्खरै निस्किएको यो फिसिंग को तरिका अरु भन्दा भिन्न छ जसका कारण मै हु भन्ने प्राविधिक बुज्रुकहरु (tech savvy) पनि यसको  शिकार भएका छन्।
कसरि हुन्छ यो फिसिंग ?
तपाइको सम्पर्कको कुनै व्यक्ति को इमेल ठेगाना चोरी (hack) भएको छ भने, चोरले पहिले उक्त सम्पर्क व्यक्ति र तपाइकोबीच को सम्बन्धको बारेमा बुझ्दछ।  त्यसपछि  चोरले तपाइको सम्पर्क व्यक्तिको  इमेल खाताबाट  तपाइलाई एउटा attachment   सहितको इमेल पठाऊदछ, यसमा कतिसम्म हुन्छ भने त्यो attachment तपाइले नै पहिले पठाउनु भएको रिपोर्ट,  फर्म, भाषा/हिज्जे सच्च्याउन पठाउनु भएको फाइल, कम्पनीको presentation जस्ता तपाइको लागि महत्वपूर्ण चिज हुनेछ।  तर
तर यो attachment वास्तबमा उक्त चोरले जालझेल गरेर तपाइको व्यक्तिगत विवरण चोर्नका लागि तयार गरेको पासो हो। यो तपाइको लागि यति महत्वपूर्ण हुन्छ कि यसलाई खोल्न अब तपाइ  धेरै नै आतुर हुनुहुन्छ जसरि तपाइलाई इमेल पठाउने तपाइको सम्पर्क व्यक्ति पहिलेनै त्यसरी नै यो पासोमा परिसक्नु भयो।
यो attachment को preview देखाउने icon मा जब तपाइले क्लिक गर्नुहुन्छ तब तपाइलाई वास्तविक लाग्ने खालको Gmail साइन इन गर्ने पेज खुल्दछ।  यो पेज हेर्दा दुरुस्तै Gmail को वास्तविक साइन इन पेज जस्तो देखिन्छ।

Movie Inspiration: The Accountant

The Accountant Movie

I watched The Accountant move during the weekend. There are some handful of movies I like to watch once and then once again and again and again many times. This one is also definitely one of the many movies that inspire you and hopefully change your view on certain things in life.
Let me be clear here, This is not some ‘critical’ review of the movie neither I intent to inspect the characters and plot for consistencies. Despite some flaws (more or less everything has), I liked the whole idea of the movie. Each time I watch it, like every other time, I find something new.
