TWM :: Online is now a full fledged Web Portal with TopFloorers' Lounge!

Man! It's been a really long but very satisfying day!!

A lot more features are in place, for TWMOnline.net.


HOME : This is the very first icon that you can find at the Lounge section in the sidebar. It actually points to home.twmonline.net and is basically a homepage that contains Google's search box and a few more gadgets that will help you to retrieve a lot of information right at one place!



EMAIL : Here's what Mann has been asking about, all this while. This is where you can access your personalized @twmonline.net email address. The email service is basically Gmail so you should not face any problems in finding your way around. All you need to do is click on this cute little button and log into the account. However, the direct link to the email sign in page is mail.twmonline.net.




CALENDAR : This one is the TopFloorers' very own Calendar application. If you had ever used Google Calendar, this should not prove any tough job for you. If it's your first time, I'll suggest you take a look around, first. The calendars created are viewed by every TopFloorer (who have their ID registered) and can be used to schedule events (think, Goa Trip). Saxi has already decided to create a calendar comprising everyone's birthdays so that we miss none, henceforth. I'll say, good idea! The direct link to the calendar is calendar.twmonline.net.




DOCUMENTS : No more shall you ever need to worry whether someone has Office 2007 or not. Our very own docs solves that problem for you. Online applications Word, Spreadsheets and Presentations (parts of 'Docs') can easily be shared and collaborated with every Wall Mag member with ease. The direct link is docs.twmonline.net.




GOA TRIP '08 : This little palm tree should have been anybody's guess. I have created our very own wiki at goa-trip.twmonline.net. This web site is editable by all of us. It has been created to document our days and emotions till the D-Day and is also supposed to contain memoirs of Raj, Rathz and company's last trip in 2007. Everyone who had been a part of last time's trip, you are requested to share your experiences in that site. As for the next one, let us see how things work out. One thing is for certain, if we sincerely keep populating content in that site, some day, we shall definitely treasure these memories. What more, we can even share it with the rest of the world to be jealous of!


Yes! All this, at just $16.19, till now. That is all I have spent on The Wall Mag, till date! :-P

I know, it is a little complicated for the more technologically challenged lot of us. But c'mon, you always have me to consult with and I shall not be able to maintain everything on my own! All I ask of you all is to play around a bit and you shall surely figure things on your own. It ain't rocket science, you know!

By the way, Raj, me, Saxi and Mann already have themselves registered. I am still waiting for response from the rest of you. Mind you, you shall not be able to access the above web applications without your @twmonline.net ID. I shall also maintain a .doc file at TWMOnline Docs so that everyone knows everybody else's ID.

Finally, here's a little video featuring Chaturvedi, Premaland, Lala, Mehul and, our very own, Meerut, shot by Sreeshastha. It's basically about everyone asking Meerut to pay for the petrol 'coz all of them had come out just because Meerut wanted to buy an iPod! After watching this video, you just might feel like giving Mann's post a revisit. ;-)


Ciao then... Cheers!!

@ Mann
Good to know that you liked the changes. Well, however, even though I start with the trend, it has to be you guys who shall have to take the torch forward. Right now I am devoting a lot of my daily time 'coz I'm in Jsr now and have limited responsibilities regarding my job. Once I am back to Mumbai, I shall be taking off again :-P

By the way, regarding the MP3 players, My picks will be Creative ZEN and iPod Nano.

Of course, while both of them look pretty good, my heart shall always go out for the iPod Nano despite it being the 3rd Generation model (it's been discontinued by Apple since they launched the 4th Generation a few days back). Dion has a iPod Video, so you can ask him for his feedback on the music player's lineage.

By the way, you can also read their reviews here.

1. Creative ZEN
2. iPod Nano (3rd Generation)

This should help you decide.
