XML Publisher Orphan Page issue (all but one blank page at the end)

I had this mind boggling problem left couple of hrs actually.  Last page of my report was printed as blank while I had no specified after end of all for loops.

Resolution: I still don't know the cause of unexplained line feeds which is causing this but seems like putting 0 after para space helps.

Don't everbuy anything from snapdeal

Ok, so I have decided to by Nokia Asha 206 for my father who doesn’t stay with me. Snapdeal ships the phone promptly. So far so good. Mobile is working, I am able to call they are able to hear me, ringtones, messages alright.

I visited them 15 days later, checked the mobile, ok, no problem. After a few days I asked for charger to charge it. Awwwwww Gosh Jeez, a charger with Micro Mak written on it (see picture). They got it from the packet.

Seller (digilogic beware) has opened the box and replaced original one with a 50 bucks fake. I called Snapdeal, awful response, said they entertain any call only within 7 days after which no claims no guarantee.

Beware Snapdeal has no quality control over their sellers. You won’t even know you got a fake china model instead of original one if you are not able to identify withing 7 days you may lose 50000 bucks as well. BS 7 days Trust pay.

I would say don’t buy electronics from snapdeal. You may be a victim

Three stage Nokia Tone

Nokia mobile phones used to announce incoming text messages with three short beeps, two long ones, and three short ones: the letters SMS spelled out in Morse code, the international alphabet of telegraphy.
