Dil Dil Pakistan. Happy Independence Day Pakistan

Nostalgic Pakistani patriotic song by Vital Signs. This used to be played on PTV (Pakistan Television) the only Pakistani TV channel at that time, when i was in class 6. Vitial signs and Junoon were the only pop/rock groups at that time, and it was refreshing to see this song played on TV among many classical (read old fashioned) songs played on TV.

14 August was day when Pakistan got independence from Britain.

Moved Over Geocities Website

I moved the geocities website navacrony and seminavacron to my hosting site. Navacrony and SemiNavacron. It was very difficult downloading each file individually. I used the wget to download the mirror of the site.

wget –mirror –w 2 –p –HTML-extension –-convert-links –P c:\wget_files\example1

wget is a unix tool. It can also be downloaded with cygwin for windows.
