IT Show Singapore

Filed under: Updates — Tags: , , , , — deshnilesh @ 1:16 pm

If you have worked in Singapore then you might be aware of the IT Show and there deals. People here in Singapore will wait for the IT show to happen as there are lot of promotions and deals available during this show.

Even if these shows are know as IT Show / PC Show, in actual these are different events organized by different companies. There are 4 shows in total as mentioned below –

March                                                – IT Show
June (School Holidays)              – PC Show
August / September                    – Comex
November / December              – SITEX

I have visited couple of shows and found that there are really good deals floating around to grab. Recently I came across a site which has archieves of the promotions/offers during these shows; in fact there were couple of other sites which were having these offers listed. I am putting the sites for everyone’s reference, I hope these guys keep them updated and are useful for future shows aswell.

Buggy Keyboard

Filed under: Other — Tags: — deshnilesh @ 12:24 pm

Last few days I was very much troubled due to my keyboard, there was some key combination causing keyboard to act weird; the key layout for few keys changed (# and : in particular). Since other keys were working fine I was not able to figure out the key combination and didn’t had time to google for the solution. However now I got to know the problem and its solution which I am sharing here.

The problem was that I using a US keyboard with UK settings and there was a key combination (Left Shift + Alt) which was changing this back and forth. The steps to rectify are simple and are documented @ Conversation Exchange (this was the first site listed in google search and has steps for both OS – XP and Vista). Hope this information is useful for someone…

While searching I came across these few links which might be useful –
