Add Album information to you media library

So you have got lot of mp3's maybe unorganized or sometimes organized into folder but containing no or wrong album info.
Here's a method to do it easily, without any additional downloads apart from you good old windows media player.
So To get going just add all your media to windows media library if you don't already have it:
1.In file(alt-F) menu select add to library
2. In the next window just cick on add and lead it to your songs folder

It will add new files to your library and you are ready to get going
Goto your library tab next and its better to use the library or songs view so that you can know which songs have partial information.
So for any song for which you need media information just right click on it and select find media info, media player will search for appropriate information and show you the results and you can select the one that suits you

No here is the most important trick if you know multiple songs are from same album just selet them all and then choose find media info, This should greatly improve the search and more often than not , there will be only one result and you can just click on finish to get the album info

Tata One cat

So You are a car fanatic, tata fan?
Well after the nano blast tata is to create another explosion the tata one cat
Yes, Tata Motors plans to launch the OneCat, a car running on compressed air by 2009.
You say oh its another impractical 60 mile/hr max speed costing 3.5 lakh+ concept, NO it isn't, so read on.

The car is expected to be a five-seater with a glass fiber body, which would weigh just 350 kg and cost just about Rs 2 lakh. The project is backed for an undisclosed sum by Tata, which says it may also use the technology for power generation.

A BBC report has pointed out that Tata's backing makes the idea much more marketable and that the Indian company will be putting finishing touches to the engine.

French engineer Negre is planning to sell the car in India by 2009, the report said. He hopes that the first buyers of the compressed air car will be people who care about the environment and would sell it for an economical price. Tata would be the only big firm Negre will license to sell the car and sales will be limited to India.

The car will be driven by compressed air stored in carbon-fiber tanks that can be filled in just three minutes. The tanks will be built into the chassis. The car can also be plugged into the mains for four hours and an on-board compressor will do the job.

For long journeys, the compressed air driving the pistons can be boosted by a fuel burner which heats the air so it expands and increases the pressure on the pistons. The burner will use all kinds of liquid fuel.

Mind you compressed air cars have very high accelerations in general and would really be suitable for stop and go traffic of indian cities. Further the car is virtually noise less and consumes absolutly no fuel while standing still

A few reasons why i hate java

Java has really sink to a new low for me.
I had never liked coding in java but this new project they forced me to use and its in my first proper java project that i see my instincts coming really true.
So as i follow this project i'll continue adding more points to it(Hopefully Not)
One more thing as I should make it clear i am new to JAVA, so if any of the points are wrong please comment and save me a headache:-

1.) You can't pass simple variables by reference in java

2.) There is no simple way to inherit constructors

3.) You have to instatiate each of Array element individually (Don't say you can use loops)

4.) Every Limitation is names as a feature in java books.
