Changing Digit Grouping (Comma Style) in MS Excel - Million to Lakh

Well this is a very common problem for our sub-continent i.e. Bangladesh, India, Pakistan, Nepal, Maldives, Sri Lanka. Cause our digit grouping system doesn't match with the international system. To be more specific - they use million, billion etc. But we use - lakh (also lac), crore etc. 
Users of the mentioned regions often face problem with the comma separator position in MS Excel. Cause the default system is international. It doesn't suit our digit grouping system. 
International System - Separates every three digits 1,000.0010,000.00100,000.001,000,000.001,000,000,000.00
Subcontinental System - Separates every two digits after the 1st three digits
1,000.0010,000.00 1,00,000.001,00,00,000.001,00,00,00,000.00 
If you're familiar with the Indian Subcontinent system and if you're bound to use this system then it will be a big trouble if you don't know the solution. Well nothing to worry about as you are going through this article. Cause from the very next moment you'…

Exclusive Google Search Techniques



In my previous post I showed how to use Google as calculator. In this post I am gonna write about different ways to search Google. 

Certainly these techniques will help you to make your search result better than ever. So, let's try the searching techniques.

Example:

Example:  


People Profiles

If you’re looking for someone you just met or a long-lost friend, enter the name of that person plus some identifying words about him or her to see a list of people with that name.
Example:  

Choosing Keywords


Synonym Search

If you want to search not only for your search term but also for its synonyms, place the tilde sign (~) immediately in front of your search term.
Example:  


Dictionary Definitions

To see a definition for a word or phrase, simply type the word “define” then a space, then the word(s) you want defined. To see a list of different definitions from various online sources, you can type “define:” followed by a word or phrase. Note that the results will define the entire phrase.

               Example:  

Spell Checker

Google’s spell checking software automatically checks whether your query uses the most common spelling of a given word. If it thinks you’re likely to generate better results with an alternative spelling, it will ask “Did you mean: (more common spelling)?”. Click the suggested spelling to launch a Google search for that term.
Example:  

Local Search

Local Search

If you’re looking for a store, restaurant, or other local business you can search for the category of business and the location and we’ll return results right on the page, along with a map, reviews, and contact information.
Example:  

Movie Showtimes

To find reviews and showtimes for movies playing near you, type “movies” or the name of a current film into the Google search box. If you’ve already saved your location on a previous search, the top search result will display showtimes for nearby theaters for the movie you've chosen.
Example:  

Health Search

Health Conditions

To see information about a common disease or symptom, enter it into the search box and we’ll return the beginning of an expert summary. You can click through to read the entire article.
Example:  

Medications

To see information about most generic and brand name prescription drugs in the U.S., enter the drug name into the search box, and we’ll display a summary and description of that medication.

How to Disable Word Verification (Captcha) in Blogger Comment

By default blogger blogs are designed to show word verification when visitors comment in a post. Though this is a very useful tool to avoid spam, but real users often get bored by this option. Besides blogger has an automatic spam checking tool. So you can remove the word verification option from the comment in order to let your visitors express their opinion easily. 
While commenting on blogger blogs or other websites you may face a word challenge. And this is a very common thing. Specially when you open any online account. Sometimes words used in the verification option are too hard to guess. And users are very annoyed with this. 


Look at the image above. When you comment on blogger blogs or someone comments on your blog he/she will face a challenge like this. Normally this option doesn't show any hard challenge. But sometimes they are also difficult to guess. Users have to try this again and again. If they are annoyed they will loose interest to express their opinion.
