Tatkal Waiting List ('CKWL')


What is Tatkal Waiting List ('CKWL') in Railway's?

CKWL means that it is a waiting list under TATKAL. The difference between normal waiting list and CKWL is that when the normal waiting list moves up it goes to RAC category whereas CKWL means when the waiting list moves up you can expect confirmed berth.Hence the difference
Tatkal reservations come out of a Tatkal Quota (code 'CK', with waiting list 'CKWL')
Get PNR Status

Request Waiting List ('RQWL')


What is Request Waiting List ('RQWL') in Railway's?

In some cases if a ticket is to be booked from an intermediate station to another intermediate station, and is not covered by the general quota nor by the remote location quotas or pooled quota, the request for the ticket may go into a "Request Waiting List" ('RQWL'). A ticket on this list is usually confirmed only when there is a confirmed ticket for a passenger travelling from the originating station to that intermediate station, although in the case of some Rajdhani routes and other long-distance trains specific quotas may be earmarked for use by passengers on the RQWL, for some intermediate stations. Tickets for travel from an intermediate point to the terminating station are also handled in the same way if there is no Remote Location Quota defined for that intermediate point.

Running Line Waiting List ('RLWL')


What is Running Line Waiting List ('RLWL') in Railway's?

A "Running Line Waiting List" ('RLWL'), also known as Remote Location Waiting List or Road-Side Location Waiting List applies to the quotas of specific intermediate ticketing stations on a route, known as the Remote Location Quota. E.g., Solapur has a quota with a corresponding wait list on the Mumbai - Chennai mail). The intermediate stations are usually the more important towns or cities on the route. The RL quota takes care of passengers travelling from these intermediate stations up to or short of the terminating station. RL quota tickets are never available from the originating station of the route. When the RL quota is exhausted, RAC (Reservation against Cancellation) begins, and it is then followed by ticketing on the RL Waiting List; in some cases when the RL Quota is small, the RL Waiting List is active immediately. There can be more than one Remote Location Quota for some long distance trains, corresponding to different stations en route. Passengers in the Remote Location Quota Waiting List are cleared against the vacancies in the earmarked Pooled Quota only, or against General Quota vacancies available at the time of charting.

Pooled Quota Waiting List ('PQWL')


What is Pooled Quota Waiting List ('PQWL') in Railway's?

A "Pooled Quota Waiting List" ('PQWL') is shared by several small stations in a particular region. E.g., Tiruppur, Salem, etc., share in the quota and wait list for some trains originating from Trivandrum or Mangalore. As another example, the 2723 Andhra Pradesh Exp. has three quotas, for Secunderabad - New Delhi, Secunderabad - nagpur, and Secunderabad - Bhopal. There is also a pooled quota for passengers travelling from Secunderabad to stations beyond Bhopal but short of Jhansi. If this quota is exhausted, a passenger is placed in the pooled quota waiting list. Pooled Quotas normally operate only from the originating station of a route, and there is only one Pooled Quota for the entire run. The Pooled Quota is intended to be utilized by passengers travelling from the originating station to a station short of the terminating station, or from an intermediate station to the terminating station, or between two intermediate stations. Such remote location quotas are also provided when there is a very strong demand for the train in question, because of which, without such additional quotas, all seats or berths might be fully consumed by passengers from the originating station leaving nothing available for those wishing to travel from intermediate points. Vacant Pooled Quota berths are automatically tapped by the PRS for booking end-to-end passengers. Passengers in the Pooled Quota Waiting List are cleared against the vacancies in the earmarked Pooled Quota only, or against General Quota vacancies available at the time of charting.

Download WinRAR with decompression rate up to 30% faster

Rarlabs has released the new version of its popular compression tool WinRAR 4.0. WinRAR is one of the popular file compression tool and it gives pretty good results with compression. The new version has better speed and depending on data type, decompression can be up to 30% faster than in previous versions. The general RAR algorithm and most of special RAR multimedia methods benefit from this improvement.



Another feature of the new version is that it brings a password manager that allows you to better handle the most used countersigns. So when you need a password for a regular compression job all you have to do is pick one from the stored list. When unpacking multiple archives you can now set WinRAR to use the same password for extracting them.

There are also changes regarding the way data is extracted as the latest version of the program features the possibility to extract relative paths instead of full ones.

Wanna find out full list of changes click here

Convert PDF to JPG, GIF, TIF, BMP, PNG

PDF is one of the most commonly used formats while sharing documents and although there are many free PDF viewers available, not all PCs will have a PDF reader installed. In such cases it is always good that you sent the files in JPG format as this format is read default by Windows using the image viewer.PDF To JPG is a nice freeware tool to convert PDF documents to image formats like JPG, TIF, BMP, PNG and GIF. The tool is easy to use and you can select the image format you want to convert to.



After selecting the format, select or add PDF files into the tool. You can either select files one by one or add a folder instead.



During the test, the conversions were really fast and multiple PDF files were converted within seconds. The app creates a folder for each of the PDF file and then stores the images in the folder. Users are able to customize DPI and Page Range in conversion setting. Also, PDF To JPG supports Batch Mode that converts hundreds of PDF documents into images at a time.

Opera 11.10 Barracuda adds infinite Speed Dial



If you guessed the unnamed-but-very-popular feature Opera was planning to overhaul in Opera 11.10 was the Speed Dial, buy yourself a beer! The browser's trademark new tab page has indeed been retooled. In the latest Opera 11.10 snapshot build, there's no limit to the number of Speed Dial entires you can add. Gone are the blank placeholder boxes from previous Opera versions, replaced with only active Speed Dial entries and an add button.



Opera has temporarily disabled Speed Dial sync in this build, and there are a handful of other known issues listed on the official blog post.



As for this being the 'big secret' planned for the Opera 11.10 release -- Opera's Thomas Ford tells us 'That's not the only improvement we have lined up for Opera 11.10, though. Speed Dial is just the first to get an overhaul.'

Lower your Amazon S3 Bill and also Improve Website Loading Time


This is a money-saving tip for web publishers who use Amazon S3 for hosting images and other static content like CSS, JavaScript files, etc.
Since Amazon S3 is a "pay as you use" storage service, your S3 bill is always directly proportional to the bandwidth that your sites consume.

How Browsers Interact with Amazon S3

When a visitor comes to your site the first time, the static images are downloaded from Amazon S3 servers and get saved inside his browser's cache.
Now if that same person visits your site again sometime in future, his browser will make another GET request to Amazon S3 asking for a fresh copy of the web images.
Since the images stored on Amazon S3 haven't changed since his last visit, Amazon servers will return a 304 Not Modified header response indicating that there's no need to download images again.
So far so good. That 304 response prevented the visitor's browser from downloading the same data again (thus saving you money) but there's another problem – Amazon S3 also charges you for every GET request so each time a browser asks Amazon if images have changed since last visit, that question itself adds to your bill even if the answer is "no".

How to Reduce Your Amazon S3 Bill

While the cost for GET requests is small (just 1¢ per 10,000 requests), they can quickly add-up if you have have a popular site or if your website design uses too many images. For instance, every page on http://atoz-networking.blogspot.com/ has about 25 static images served from S3.
To control this cost, you need a mechanism that will prevent browsers from sending the GET request if the file already exists in their cache. This can be easily done by setting appropriate Cache-Control and Expires headers at the time of uploading the files on to Amazon S3.
Cache-Control is like instructing the browser whether to make any requests to Amazon S3 or not before a given period. So if you set Cache-Control max-age=864000 for your S3 images, the web browsers will not request that file from S3 storage until the next 10 days (3600*24*10 sec).
Other than saving money, your site will also load relatively faster because the visitor's browser will reuse images, logos and other static files from the cache without making any new request to Amazon S3.
BitRhymes, developers of the popular Sketch Me app for MySpace, saw their Amazon S3 billdip by 40% after they implemented cached headers for images.

Implement Caching for Amazon S3 Files

To set the appropriate Cache-Control headers for files hosted on Amazon S3, you can either use the Bucket Explorer client (cost $50) or upload files manually via this PHP scriptwritten by Lalit Patel who is also the inspiration behind this article.
If you are worried about setting Cache headers for JavaScript and CSS files as they may change frequently (especially when you are in the midst of a site re-design), Lalit shares a very simple workaround – just append a version number after the file name like main.js?v=2&tag=labnol-20.
Before: <link href="http://files.labnol.org/main.css?v=2" ../>
After:  <link href="http://files.labnol.org/main.css?v=3" ../>
Change the version from 2 to 3 and visitors browser will make a fresh GET request to Amazon S3 for the latest version of the S3 file.

[Tutorial] Host Your Website on Amazon S3


Most web hosting companies charge you a fixed monthly fee and in return, they offer you a finite amount of storage space for hosting your web pages, images and other files.

It doesn’t really matter if you are hosting a simple website with 10 pages or a comprehensive product catalogue with thousands of pages – the amount you pay for hosting will be the same.

There’s also a limit on the amount of traffic (bandwidth quota) that your site can receive in a month. If you exceed that limit, the hosting provider is likely to suspend your site or you’ll be asked to upgrade to a different plan. On the other side, if your site receives only minimal traffic, you’ll still have to pay for the full bandwidth.

Amazon S3 vs Regular Web Hosting


Unlike web hosting companies, Amazon S3 follows a ‘pay for what you use’ model where you only have to pay for the exact amount of storage and bandwidth that your website is consuming in a month.

There’s another advantage - the Amazon S3 SLA guarantees a monthly uptime of at least 99.9% which, I doubt, is offered by any of the traditional web hosting companies.

And thanks to some recent enhancementshosting your website on Amazon S3 is almost as easy as uploading your files to an FTP server. The only limitation is that Amazon S3 can only be used for hosting HTML websites and not dynamic sites like WordPress blogs.

How to host websites with Amazon S3


Step 1: Assuming that you already an Amazon.com account, log in to your Amazon S3 console. You may also use desktop-based S3 clients but to keep things simple, we’ll use the web client in this tutorial.

Step 2: Create a bucket here and give it a name which is the same as your website. For instance, if you are planning to host your website mybeautifulfamily.com with Amazon, create an S3 bucket with same name.

Step 3: Select the new bucket and click the Upload button to upload all the web pages, images, CSS and other static files from your desktop to your Amazon S3 bucket. Click ‘Set Permissions,’ select ‘Make Everything Public’ and start the upload process.

Step 4: Now that your files have been uploaded, right-click the bucket name and choose Properties. Switch to the Websites tab, enable the websites feature and set your index.html file as the index document. Save the changes.

That’s it. Here's a recap of all the above steps in the form of a video screencast:










Map Amazon S3 to your own Web Domain

There’s one last step. Your website is now hosted on Amazon S3 but it has a confusing web address (akaEndpoint) which looks something like this:

mybeautifulfamily.com.s3-website-us-east-1.amazonaws.com

Since we want people to find our site at mybeautifulfamily.com and not through the above address, we need to map the Amazon bucket address to our sweet web domain.

That’s also simple – log in to your domain hosting service and create a new CNAME Record for your domain. Set the value of this CNAME record as the Endpoint provided by Amazon S3 and save your changes. The DNS changes might take a while to propagate across the web and once that happens, your new site can be accessed from anywhere.

The Cost of Hosting Websites with Amazon S3

According to some rough calculations, if you have a 20-page website that takes about 10 MB of storage space and your site gets 200 visitors per day, the monthly hosting bill with Amazon S3 should be around $5 per month.

Not exactly cheap but the site’s uptime will be close to 100% and it won’t crash even if you make it to the front page of CNN.com.

BroadCast Your Blogs on YouTube To Increase Traffic Significantly!




YouTube is is the most valuable source when it comes to driving traffic to a weblog or website. Most people often waste precious money on adwords and other Traffic driving services when the most cheapest and easiest source of traffic lies secretly in growing social websites. An example of one such free traffic generating source is no doubt YouTube. If you have observed the search results on Google carefully then you might have noticed that no matter what you search for, Google often displays results from two major sources i,e Wikipedia andYouTube. There is indeed a great advantage for those who wish to significantly increase there website traffic and today I will share one important trick of driving continuous and targeted Traffic from this Giant video Broadcasting service i.e YouTube

How Can You Drive Huge Flow Of Traffic From YouTube?

The Answer is simple, start broadcasting your Blog Posts on YouTube! Yes you heard it right! Let me explain it now.
Last year I tried every possible Traffic resource in order to multiply the number of unique visitors to MBT but most methods were often hectic and required great deal of time. I am sure you have triedlinkreferral or EntreCard and you know how often do we get angry when after having worked so hard the Traffic that we receive from them appears insufficient and non-targeted (Irrelevant visitors) So then I started experimented with some sources which worked wonders and one of these Magic wands was YouTube. What I did was creating videos of every post that I would publish. I did not create more than 8 videos but the Traffic from them was and is plausible. If I had kept on recording more and more videos then I am sure the Traffic that I receive today would have been thrice with no exaggeration. But due to lack of time I often fail to achieve many great opportunities..
I will share some easy steps by applying which you will be able to make a video of all your blog posts within 1-2 minutes. First kindly see the sample video below as an example,

You might have observed that I simply added a background music and then started simple recording of the post. We really don’t need high quality videos for this purpose as we just want the viewer to visit our blog after having seen the video so keeping the video short and straight is what we aim for.

How To create Videos of Blog Posts and Share it on YouTube?

The method is simple. Kindly do the following,
  1. Download CamStudio Video Recorder From camstudio.org
  2. Install CamStudio
  3. Then view the video below to know how to adjust your camStudio settings for quality recording.
 
4. After having understood the proper use of CamStudio simply jump at your Blog post and start Recording. Your Purpose is to provide the viewer with quick answer to his problem so keep the video short with following points in mind,
  • Start recording from your Blog header and then move to Post title and then move slowly till the end of your post.
  • Turn on your media player at the background while recording. This will make the video interesting.
  • After you have reached the end of your post then display a short ending message to the viewer as shown below,
Note:- You can use our image. Simply right Click it and click “Save Image as”

See the video below
5. Now Upload your video to YouTube using your Google Account
6. Keep the Video Title as your Post title
7. Add your Post link to the description and then finally hit Save.
8. View your video to see if it is working fine.
