So What Exactly Is Google Wave?
Google Wave is a real-time communication and collaboration platform that incorporates several types of web technologies, including email, instant messaging (IM), wiki, online documents, and gadgets. In more technical terms, Google Wave is a platform based on hosted XML documents (called waves) supporting concurrent modifications and low-latency updates.
The Google Wave user interface includes panes that dynamically update with content as users interact with waves.
A general overview of how a wave is structured. Waves contain wavelets, which are containers for blips (messages) added by participants. Extensions, in the form of robots and gadgets augment the conversation between participants in a wave by adding different types of features and functionality to a conversation.
The threaded conversation model includes one or more threads based on replies to an initial message or replies to other replies.

While blogging, surfing around I came across an article which astonished me as it read “Intel cleanrooms are 10000 times cleaner than a hospital operating room”
Really strange, Intel says
Cleanrooms are 10,000 times cleaner than a hospital operating room. It takes an incredible amount of technology to achieve and maintain such cleanliness. Huge air filtration systems completely change the air in cleanrooms about 10 times per minute, reducing the chance that there are airborne particles that might harm the chips.
Keeping the environment clean, however, is only half of the story. What about the people who work in the cleanrooms? The thousands of people who work in Intel cleanrooms all wear special uniforms called “bunny suits” to protect the chips from human particles such as skin flakes or hairs. A bunny suit is made from a unique non-linting, anti-static fabric and is worn over street clothes.

Is there such a thing as a non-breaking hyphen to prevent words like’e-mail’ and ‘e-commerce’ from breaking in two pieces at the end of a line?
I haven’t used it much, but placing the whole word between <nobr></nobr> tags should work……. It worked for me!

‘123456‘ is the most common password used by people on the Internet.
Obscenities, names of fast cars and even ncc1701 – the ship number for Star Trek’s Starship Enterprise, have made it to the list of top 500 worst passwords of all time. Compiled by Whatsmypass.com, the list features passwords most commonly used by Internet users.
And topping the list of the most common password is 123456, followed by “password” in second place.
Other popular password choices were first names, repeated letters and numbers, pop-culture references. Even batman, bond007 and cocacola made it to the list, reports the Courier Mail.
The website said that almost one out of nine people use at least one of the passwords mentioned on the list, and one out of every 50 people use one from the top 20.
In fact, a study commissioned by digital communications agency @www found that an average adult had as many as 15 passwords to remember.
But 61 per cent of people used the same passwords for as many different accounts as possible in order to make life easier.
