News broke out a year back that Chiranjeevi will merge with Congress and kill his brain child, Praja Rajyam Party. But they completely rejected the idea saying that it was a rumour.
Now it is official. Praja Rajyam Party is now officially DEAD. The END.
It merges with Congress party, as Chiranjeevi and his 18 odd leaders think that Congress suddenly became a great political party and share their views and beliefs.
Why? Why Now? You must be kidding if you are still wondering. What a big drama for the last three years in the name of …. what a crap. Forget about it.

I don’t know why? Majority of conferences organized by and around Microsoft Technologies, DO NOT offer RSS Feeds of their sessions and videos. For some mysterious reasons. Instead the sites offer a ridiculously tedious and stupid interface to subscribe/download session videos.
It is supposedly a conference of UX Experts.
“MIX is a gathering of developers, designers, UX experts and business professionals creating the most innovative and profitable consumer sites on the web.” - http://live.visitmix.com/
But when you want to watch or download session videos, there is NO RSS FEED. Instead here is what they want you to do:
If you’d like to download all of the keynote and session content, download a recent build of cURL (~250K), and extract it to your folder-of-choice. Then, download MIX10Downloader.zip (1.39KB) and extract the MIX10Downloader.bat file to the same folder. From a command prompt, start MIX10Downloader by passing it one of the following parameters: WMVHIGH, WMV, MP4, PPTX. Then wait. For files that aren’t available, cURL will download a file that is around 1,245 bytes in size (if you change the extension to .htm and open it, you’ll see that the file is simply an HTML "not found" error page).
To rename the files, first, download MIX10Renamer.zip (4.09KB). Then, extract the MIX10Renamer.bat file to the folder that contains your downloaded files, and from a command prompt, type MIX10Renamer WMV to rename all of the .WMV files to the full session title. By changing the parameter, you can also rename your PPTX and MP4 files.
Majority of people that are interested in these sessions, I believe, would have one or other RSS Feed Reader applications. If they provide an RSS FEED, everybody can easily and readily view all sessions and download if they want to.
What kind of an UX is this?
