If user wants to convert the songs into other format we should have an option for these conversions also. Each song in the database will have its description. when a datagram cannot reach its destination. It should maintain the different appointments like personal meeting. NETWORKING PROJECTS We will focus on investigating new ideas in networking research through different networking projects. etc. retrieval and management of collections of various songs in different audio file formats.
