For a website, the things you need are domain, hosting and content. Choosing a right domain name is essential and it should be able to reflect the content on the website. But to put this content together you would need to host it a reliable place where it is secure and approachable without any downtime or delay. Your host should ensure fast processing and delivery of the requests on your website.

There would be a plethora of other factors you would need to consider to choose a good webhost.

Undo Sending a Message in GMail

Thursday, March 19, 2009

It often happens that after clicking that send button of the email, we recall that there was something more to be added, a missing attachment or we just regret sending that email. Well, now if you are using GMail and can get a reflex in 5 seconds you can 'Undo' sending a message.

Google Labs has come up with the 'Undo Send' gadget which will allow you to cancel sending a message for which you have just pushed the Send button. The only catch is that you just have five seconds to take action. To activate this gadget in your GMail account, go to Settings and then select this gadget from the Labs tab.

This feature was just announced on the GMail blog. It reads:
"This feature can't pull back an email that's already gone; it just holds your message for five seconds so you have a chance to hit the panic button. And don't worry – if you close Gmail or your browser crashes in those few seconds, we'll still send your message."

The feature is definitely great but I believe the interval of 5 seconds is somewhat low. It should have been somewhere around 20-30 seconds or it would had been better if you were given an option to choose a custom time. I would have selected about a minute.
