I assume you have already gotten yourself a .NP domain name. If not, you can read the process here.

Mercantile only lets you change Nameservers of your domain, however, services such as Google's Blogger and Tumblr, require you to change A Record and CNAME, but not the nameservers.

CashOnAd : Make Money While Receiving Phone Calls

I just learned about this Android app called CashOnAd which is suprisingly, home-made (when I say home-made, I mean made in Nepal). It is suprising because it deals with something not so popular in our country - making money through an unconventional way. What it does is let you watch video advertisements whenever you receive a call, and for each 6 seconds of video advertisement that you watch, you will earn 1 cent (~1 NPRupees at current rate). That does not sound much, but at least its something, I guess.

Episode Player is a free program that has got a very unique feature that makes it suitable for watching TV shows - it remembers the episode you had last watched, and the next time you open it, it starts the next episode.

Run And Kill: Open a program and close it automatically after certain time

This is something I'm sure will be useful to most of you as it has been to me. I download tons of stuff either through torrent or directly via download managers. I prefer doing that on the night time, because everyone is asleep, and low browsing speed because of the download does not really matter anyone. With this program, I can set a fixed amount of time for the bitTorrent client to run, after which it will automatically shut down. So, let's say I share my internet with someone else and he starts using his computer from 5 o'clock in the morning, then using this application I can just schedule the bitTorrent client to run for 5 hours starting from midnight. Then, I won't have anything to worry about. (Of course there are other ways to tackle this problem.)
