What's a joke, without any moral? Moral of the joke: You can't fit a square where a circle should be (not unless you are a policeman)! Guess, I would have learnt from this moral, but this has been my problem off-late, I am trying to push myself to start taking interest in things, which I know are not that important to me; trying to convince myself that this is the right thing to do, when I myself know that I am no policeman!

Fine Print: The bookmarklet is only meant for esnips.com and has only been tested on Firefox, I will try to test it out on IE7; once I log on to Vista sometime tomorrow morning.
Tested it out on Vista using both Fx and IE7 and realized that due to the plugin, the media will start playing within the browser itself after using the bookmarklet. You can then either, use "Save Page As" from the file menu or use the below bookmarklet. This bookmarklet will add a "Download Media" link to the page just below the "Tags"; right click on this link and select "Save Target As..." on IE7 or "Save Link As" on Fx.

It's been around a month since I left the states forever and came back, and I still haven't figured out what I need to do with my life. Sometimes, I feel I should just let it be, and let life take me where it will. I think the more important question for me is; what is that I want from my life now? What will make me feel happy and satisfied? I guess we all go through this phase in our life, where the same doubts complicate our minds; where we feel kind of run down and burned out...a phase when time flies but life stands still! Maybe, as of now there's nothing that I really love doing (lack of motivation plays a big part in that), and I'll end up bitching irrespective but then, life is not about what should be, or what could be. Sometimes, I wish I could fast forward my life by 10-20 years just to see where I'm headed. At least, one thing I am very sure about, I am gonna get there...where? Who knows, who cares, anyway?

Without getting into the moral question about why would you want to download audio from esnips, here's how I've been doing, it's kind of crude but it works.
- Windows Vista (or any other windows OS).
- Firefox (or any other browser).
- Windows Media Player 11 Plugin for Firefox (I guess any browser+plugin combination will work).
- SysInternal's Microsoft's Process Monitor (or FileMon, if you are using Win XP).
- Search for the audio on esnips, and click the preferred search result, the song should automatically start playing within the browser.
- Once the song is being played in the browser via the plugin, start ProcessMonitor (or FileMon).
- Set the filter in ProcMon to include the browser in the filtered list.
