Free Internet in Grenoble

This is specifically for STMicroelectronics Employees who are visiting Grenoble officially. ST prefers to arrange their accomodation in City Suits Hotel. There is a facility for ST Employees by City Suits free of cost. You can avail free internet access in your rooms. You just have to ask reception to handover you a DSL Modem along with its wires etc. You connect the DSL in your phone line in your room with splitter and LAN cable. Now you can be online as long as you want.
The only thing is that internet is wired and in small rooms of City Suits, its like you are trapped in some wires. So enjoy it on ur laptops...

MoneySaver : It really saves money....

First of all, let me clarify. They are not paying me anything for writing this. I am writing this because these are things which matters.

So friends! I came across this wonderful concept named MONEYSAVER. One fine day, we were planning to go to Adventure Island, Rohini. I called up the office and asked about the ticket which was Rs 375/- per person. Then I asked if they have any discount as we were 6 people. They said they have tie up with MONEYSAVER and if you are moneysaver member, we offer 1 ticket free with 1 ticket for One MoneySaver Card. I asked, "What the hell is MONEYSAVER? How do you become member?".

MoneySaver is a site with www.moneysaver.in. They have some membership coupons in denomination 99, 199 and 349 with validity 1 month, 3 month and 6 month. Once you have a membership card(can be purchased online or from THE MOBILE STORE), you can avail all offers provided to moneysaver members. So if I was a moneysaver member, I would have paid 375 + 99 for 2 Tickets of Adventure Island instead of 375x2. They also offer other discounts on food chains, shopping etc. For further details, check their web link www.moneysaver.in.

PS: If you buy their coupon online, it takes 24 hours to get activated. So if you planning to use it same day, buy it from MOBILE STORE chain.

The Pink Chadhdhi Campaign

Two weeks back, a shameful thing happened in the name of our culture and moral values. Some "unknown" political outfittried to get a negative publicity by beating women, who can be our sisters, fiancees, wives, friends any one. And therewas no one to check them. I feel outraged and many of us have felt it. But can we do something about it?? Can we teachthose notorious criminals and hooligans some lesson..??

Yes..See the attached link..A nice way to slap them and shut their mouth. If you feel the same be a part of it.
