Finally got some time to work on Nauksum.. and at last was able to link the photo album to Nauksum database.. wohooooo.... thats such a relief.. still have some linking problems though.. those that had access to the photo albums administrative section (hemen hya, bhumi, kailash, pramod, smriti, krish hya) you will not be able to log in with your old ids... use your Nauksum ids... and use the photo link at the main menu from the nauksum not the ones on the old header.. once logged in you might not have admin access... will have to change your Nauksum access rights which will then be reflected on the photo album as well... just try playing around with it at the moment.. will work on this later...
with my current timings at work etc I dont know how much longer it would be before we can roll out Nauksum.. the layout for Nauksum is a problem area at the moment.. have to figure out how to make it better than the present one..

Halosatho is searchable now.. one can search through first name, last name, city, country, profession, std codes and even phone numbers.. since the original data didnot have professions, searches on it might not return anything... to test I did add engineer to one of the data... hope others will be updated soon... the search results are sorted alphabetically according to their names (last name first)... working on adding and editing data online...

I have been busy off late.. but did squeeze in time to work on the halo satho.. wanted to do this a long time back but as you all know 'the to do things' list is just too long.. i guess its going to be one step at a time..
for now the data online is the old one.. kris hya had been trying to update it constantly.... once the new Halo satho is out we shall import the new data... for now lets see how this old one works out...
tried to add details in hindi as well.. i always dread working with hindi fonts.. as they always get messed up.. and this time around hindi fonts are working fine on firefox but the microsofts internet explorer is puking gibberish texts.. will work on that later...
will try and integrate halo satho with the present directory we have.. the directory by the way is integrated with the genealogy data.. so we will have the halo satho, online directory and the genealogy integrated... was trying to use ajax for the GUI part on halosatho but it turned out to be a pain and was infact pretty slow.. so had to scrap it off...
For now the links from the halosatho to the genealogy wont work as it still needs some work... if one wants to see how it will work try looking for (kris hya) krishna rautela's record.. rest of them need to be linked.. that will be a lot of work...
oh.. i forgot to mention that you would need kruti 010 fonts to view the hindi details.. you can download them here... http://www.rungmung.net/downloads/K010.ttf will see if they can be embedded like some of the other sections so that you dont have to download.. but for now u will need to..
so without further adieu here is the link to halosatho.. http://rungmung.net/halo-satho/ ... the names are alphabetically sorted.. last names first... so if you are looking for a Garbyal goto G... will add a search capability at a later stage...
any suggestions are welcome... we might have to make this a private section.. any thoughts on this...
p. s.: the nauksum project is still in progress... :)

just got over watching oscars.. this was the first time I watched the whole show.. especially because john stewart was hosting it.. not bad at all.. out of all the movies crash was the only movie i had seen and surprisingly it won the best picture.. i think the producers themselves were shocked to their wits when they announced it..
a bit on project Nauksum.. have managed to add a dictionary, a flash mp3 player, events section, a new forum, and couple of tits and bits...
we might have to ask our users to re-register for the new system or we can import the user database from the genealogy(that would be a pain though)... registeration would again be strictly only rung and some special circumstances (mom, grandmom rungshya, etc...)
was also thinking that to register a person would have to send us their genealogy data so that we can move ahead with the genealogy section as well.. no genealogy data no access... this would also help us track who is who.. (people might use phoney rung names to just get into the site)..
also if we could make registeration through referrals.. on the basis of invitations (like gmail has..) it might be a little confusing.. but just a thought.. let me know what you guys think..
I think the photos database still needs some work as some of the pics are not available.. if you dont see your pics dont worry they will be back.. :) and would also like to apologize on messing up on the number of views on one of the albums on the photos section.. it got reset by mistake to zero.. thank god the comments are still there though :) (not that they matter... ;) )
still waiting for responses on what sections should be private and what should be public... guys this is the time to speak up or you will have to live with what becomes of some of the sections later...

The above title was first used in an online article by Christina, an American lady who went to Darma to study about Darmani language.. and I think it fits appropriately to mine as well.. thanks Christina..
Its great to see that Jooni has become one of our most active sections on Rung Mung.. I sincerely hope it had topped pictures as well.. even though it is little far-fetched, I think we need more of constructive energy to float around Rung Mung rather than those anon uncouth comments or opinions...
Rung Mung started with a lot of zeal and plethora of promises (from others) but unfortunately the group that initiated the project has become dormant.. we donâ€™t know how many people read those group emails anymore.. or do those mails ever make into their inboxes past their junk foldersâ€¦ so I have decided to post entries concerning the site in the Jooni so we could get better response from the dedicated few that do read stuff on Rung Mung other than just browse through picturesâ€¦ I know we have others that do unfailingly visit the site on a daily basis in their busy hoursâ€¦ the site statistics have doubled over the past six monthsâ€¦ and we are truly grateful for the appreciation...
I realize so far we have failed to take Rung Mung to the directions it was initially started with.. more of about our places and traditions.. instead it has become more of user oriented community site driven by user inputs and contentsâ€¦ and I think its an achievement in its own right.. how many of us think that we could have known so many other rungs otherwise.. chat was down for couple of days and I got enough requests to put it back even though it was simply for plain time pass and habitual interaction.. hope one of us will get inspired some day and will have time to work on those missing articles and contents that Rung Mung needsâ€¦
Coming to Nauksum.. as I have already given a little intro on Nauksum (itâ€™s the code name for our new interface) on Kanakâ€™s Jooni, we hope to centralize the user database for the whole siteâ€¦ it would help us get rid of the anons and ultimately benefit the end user.. the users would be able to connect to each other (something like Hi5, orkut), have more control on sections like news, events, pictures, etcâ€¦ and so far its coming out fine and some of those that have seen it are excited about itâ€¦. this might take a few weeks or even few months but it will be done depending on the amount of time we can devote apart from our busy schedules.. and as the name suggests its about Saving our Nauksum
even when its just being onlineâ€¦ I hope anons get the message..
Oh yes.. before I forget we have couple of new moderators for our picture section.. Bhumika Garbyal, Smriti Tinkari, Kailash Bohra and Namita Bohra.. thanks guys..
I know this has become longer than a normal entry.. I hope you did make it this far reading it.. got so much to write about but I think I better notâ€¦ at least not today.. hope to keep my entries about the site regularâ€¦
