SRK cool about being Aamir’s dog’s namesake

Visit Aamir Khan’s blog here

After Amitabh Bachchan’s blog created a controversy with his remarks against veteran actor and BJP MP Shatrughan Sinha, Aamir Khan’s latest post talks about his pet dog ‘Shah Rukh’ at his home in Panchgani.

Aamir however claimed he had nothing to do with the naming of the dog. He said Shah Rukh was shooting a commercial in the Panchgani house, a few years ago, and on the very day, the caretakers bought a pup and named him after Shah Rukh. When his reaction was sought Shah Rukh, the actor, said he was not bothered and was taking it in the spirit.

β€œI have never bothered about it because I too say a lot of things in fun. I don’t get stressed when friends pass comments like this,” Shah Rukh said.

Aamir had wrote in his blog β€œShah Rukh is licking my feet and I am feeding him biscuits every now and then. What more I can ask for?”

He ends the entry saying: β€œHe is smelling too much. I think he needs a bath. Heel Boy, heel.”

========================================================

September 20, 2006 (Computerworld) — Google Inc. is experimenting with the open-source version of Sun Microsystems Inc.’s Solaris operating system as a possible long-term prelude to replacing its massive global network of Linux servers, according to sources.

With dozens of data centers worldwide estimated to house hundreds of thousands of Intel servers supporting its flagship search engine, a Google move to OpenSolaris would be another of several recent votes of confidence for the platform.

Propelled by the release of Solaris’ source code 15 months ago as well as new Advanced Micro Devices-based servers from Sun that run it, the nearly 2-decade-old operating system is experiencing something of a midlife resurgence. More than 5 million users have registered to use Solaris 10 since its release in January 2005, a figure that includes those paying Sun for support and those using it for free.
