Soliciting ideas and suggestions

I am getting lots of emails regularly – particularly from elderly people – about computer glitches while accessing this blog or a post/page etc. Errors like “Ah snap” in chrome browser etc. Also I sympathize the situation, I am unable to help you any further due to various reasons – primary reason being me being in US – way far away from you all. I am really clueless on how to help you if your entire browser crashes. As a computer IT guy, here are my immediate suggestions ::

  • I am sure most of you are using Windows computers. It will have Internet Explorer (IE) as a browser. Try it out – if that works, keep using it.
  • If you are little bit knowledgeable, install Firefox or Safari and see if that helps
  • If you have tried all of them, and if all browsers fail on you, please email me under what scenario, they crash – does it crash when going to any site or only to this blog. If it is only to this blog, does it crash when going to a post with photos, videos, pdf document embedded in it? Not that I have a solution there – at least it will give me an idea on what might be causing this…..
  • Other than these, I am running out of options…I am requesting more ideas from others….

Now a request to tech-savvy folks in the blog – can any of you put together a FAQ document on things around browsers, how to download videos, audios etc? This might help several folks…Additionally can I get some volunteers in Chennai who are willing to take few calls to help some mamas/thathas out in this forum on these issues? You are my L1 support 🙂

On another topic of articles in Tamil, non-Tamil readers want them translated. I need volunteers for the same….If there are any volunteers available for translation and/or re-typing in Tamil, please pick the articles; start your translation/re-typing and send it to me at mk.netid@gmail.com – I will gladly publish them. I may not have time to review them etc – I will trust your work 🙂

Please understand that I am strapped for time….I am trying to do my best in the limited time I have….Although I can’t make everyone happy, I am doing my best to support you all….My apologies to folks whom I am unable to help.

Jaya Jaya Shankara Hara Hara Shankara

  1. Dear  Sri Mahesh.,

    This is just to acknowledge and appreciate the efforts you have been taking to do your best. I am a regular follower of your postings. Do not know anything about computer operations except to open the mails , browse, view ,respond and forward. Whenever the attachments do not open up properly or crash I always  miss them not knowing what to do cursing my luck in missing the messages/topics.

     With indiffernt health I am unable to improve my learning on  the operations. Kindly keep up the great service.

    Thanks.

     Regards.

    S.R.Kuppuswamy(85+)

  9. I always check the mails from “Sage of Kanchi”. And also i am a devotee of Shri. Kanchi Maha Periyaval. I have collected many articles on “Experience with Mahaperiyava” & always listen to it.

Youngsters should read this .

  11. Sir,

    You are doing GREAT ! Let people find drawbacks/faults. SP MahaPeriyava/Bhagvan Ramji/Krishna were criticized. You are doing selfless service. Though an non-Tamil, I look forward to your posts, at least I have Darshan of SP MahaPeriyava. Good luck, ashok mehta.
