The Sorry State Of Bank Of Baroda Internet Banking And Customer Support

I have been a Bank of Baroda customer for almost 11 years now and have enjoyed their services until past few years, it is very sad to see how a bank which claims itself to be "India's International Bank" and offer "A Hi-Tech Convenience eBanking Product suite" via their "BarodaConnect (BOBiBanking) Portal" fairs at the bottom when compared to competition like SBI Online, Axis iConnect, HDFC e-Banking etc. in terms of both usability and convenience of use.

Since, past years I have always found their online portal to be very amateurish and their SMS delivery (for One-time-password) slow - they are even not supported for auto-account updation by wealth management systems like Perfios, Mint etc. as they use an in-compatible login system, adding "insult to the loss" they have now blocked any user having the latest Java version (Jave SE 7 Update 65) out of their portal completely showing the below error - ironically they want you to use Java and bug you with multiple login and Q&A prompts citing higher security measures just to view your account but fail to reply multiple emails and calls when they failed to recognize a new version of Java with "Critical Security Fixes"!!!. We have already written about the security risk of having older Java version on your computer, even Java itself is imposing stricter security measures to mitigate this risk. After, emailing two times without receiving a reply, a visit to the branch and a call to customer-care and waiting for almost 20 days the only solution I had was to "downgrade Java" on my computer as demonstrated next.

MicroXwin Runs Debian & Android Together, Works Faster On Raspberry Pi

X- Window System is the core graphic-framework for Unix/Linux desktops. Sadly, it does not works very well with low-power mini-pc's like Raspberry Pi and therefore alternatives like Wayland are being developed. MicroXwin is a kernel-based X Windows implementation, which claims to be the smallest and fastest X implementation promising a faster, stable and has low-latency GUI on mini-pc's with the added advantage of being a unified Linux distribution that can run Android and Debian/Ubuntu applications simultaneously. Both Android and Debian apps run at native speeds and unlike other hacks Debian apps don't depend on Android and has full compatibility with all Android applications.

This is looking to be a great solution to the lack of proper graphic-driver problem on Debian ARM, which prevents proper YouTube and HD video playback on these devices where Android will act as the solution under the unified distribution. VolksPC, the company behind MicroXwin have also shared two videos - one showing Debian-Android duality, and the other showing upto 66% faster desktop performance on Raspberry Pi.

Steps To Recover Lost USB Disk Space

A few days ago my friend experienced "lost disk space" on his 8 GB pen-drive while using the Videocon D2H external-disk TV recording functionality. The DTH STB asked to format the device to enable recording, after which only 149MB was left visible/usable on Windows. While inspecting the disk from "Windows Disk Management" console, it was clear the space was still there but is of an unknown format, the recording feature on STB deliberately converted the disk to a custom file-system to prevent piracy of recorded material. We simply need to reclaim the space using special utilities as demonstrated ahead.
