Start Using New Rupee Symbol on your Computer

On 15th July 2010 Indian Union Cabinet approved new symbol for Indian rupee - an amalgam of the Devnagiri 'Ra' and the Roman capital 'R' without the stem, designed by an Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) postgraduate D. Udaya Kumar.

It might take nearly a year or two for the symbol to find permanent place on electronics.

For those who can not wait till then, people at Foradian Technologies developed a font called Rupee basically a vector image which can be downloaded and used for free on Windows, Linux and MAC systems. Their site contains all necessary detailed instructions for installing and using the font on all the above OS.

How to get it on to your computer ?
1. Download the font from here

2. Install the font on your computer. Just copy paste the font in fonts folder in control panel


3. Start Using it

I was able to install it on my Windows 7 Laptop without any issue and got it into my Microsoft Word 2010 (Screenshot above)

Use Solvr to Solve your Problems

Solvr is a web based tool that helps you solve a problem by structuring your thoughts. You can also solve a problem together with others with the help of unique URL provided by Solvr. Simple but effective tool. Presently the tool is in alpha stage and new features are slowly being added.

Below is an extract from the website
How it works
1. You enter a problem.
2. You enter ideas that could solve the problem.
3. Some ideas lead to new (hopefully smaller) problems.
4. When a problem is solved, the tree gets green.
    A problem is considered solved, when you found an idea that does not lead to a new problem.


Below are the screenshots of a problem for which I used to test Solvr and solve. You can click here to check out my problem page on Solvr.


Finally Solved all my problems :)


Try it once and I am sure you will use it again. Happy problem solving :)
