Yup , the boys at Blizzard have done it again ! They’ve released a new patch for Warcraft 3 Reign of Chaos and The Frozen Throne and now the version number has reached 1.21 a! I guess the epic Warcraft legacy continues in patch 1.21! Read legacy of the patches! While I’m typing this , I’m searching for a NO CD Crack for this patch so that I can run the game! Before you start blaming me for spreading piracy , lemme tell u that I no longer have my original Frozen Throne CD , it was wasted a long time ago , I only have a backup disk that requires a NO CD Crack to run the game. Hey , I’ve found one ! I hope this works with battle.net…
I heard that the Blizzard guys did something to good old battle.net and now u can’t play on it if you’ve got NO CD Cracks. Somebody please tell them that CDs aren’t immortal! If they are so worried why don’t they release official NO CD patches that requires a battle.net CD KEY to download it…. That would put an end to their worries about piracy. Oh well , they do have that system of sending the empty box for a new CD , but who the hell is gonna wait 2 months for the new CD to come…????
Hey , this NO CD crack works(Still haven’t tried it with battle.net,though). I’m uploading it on Megaupload, Rapidshare and Filefont. Here is the link for the patch http://www.blizzard.com/support/?id=mwr0642p

Well that’s it for now…
Oh and BTW check out my new AMV…
Well to put it , I’d say that I was busy , real busy ! Well I was busy studying , making up for time that I lost throughout the year. Then I was upgrading my PC and then I was too lazy to post some stuff.
But I made my first AMVs (Anime Music Video)
Well here they are…
My first AMV , i’ve titled this Janemab Rules , quite frankly I think this ain’t very good.
Then comes my 2nd AMV which I think is quite nice.
Tell me how they are…Read Full Post | Make a Comment ( 3 so far )
Qwerty recently had a post about the newly revealed theme , Royale and Royale Noir for XP ! Royale is the default theme for Windows Media Center but finally we can get it on XP ! He’s deployed the Royale Noir theme on his desktop – it’s base is black and it’s an absolute killer ! So , I decided that I’d deploy the Royale theme on desktop , it’s base is a soothing shiny blue ! Here are some screenies…
Windows Media Player 10 , blends perfectly with the Royale theme….
Check out Firefox 2 , with Royale ….
That status bar is friggin’ cool . 🙂
Now, the WMP 10 toolbar , please forgive the small pic…
It’s blends in perfectly too ! For the first time in my life , I like the way XP looks… 🙂Read Full Post | Make a Comment ( 8 so far )
If you thought that the default Ubuntu mix of Brown and Orange sucked , then here’s your chance to make it cool blue. You don’t need to download anything big. Just a couple of wallpapers and a splash screen. Are you ready to take a dip into blue territory ? Then let’s begin…
First thing’s first. Let’s make the Login Window blue. Go to System>Administration>Login Window
Select any blue Login Window like Circles or Happy Gnome and click on the radio button beside it.
Now , click on the security tab and click on the check box beside ” Allow local system administrator login “. This allows graphical root login which we wil use later.
That’s it , you are done with the login window.
I must admit that all those brown and orange wallpapers get to your head after sometime. So why not have a fluid , cool , blue wallpaper. Unfortunately Ubuntu doesn’t pack any blue wallpapers by default , so you will have to download your own. How about a couple of blue wallpapers that I made…
Now use them as your wallpapers , or you could find more at Gnome look .
Cool , now you have a blue wallpaper.
3. Gnome Panel
Do this only after you have your blue wallpaper.
Configuring the Gnome panel is easy.
Just right click on a blank space in the panel and select properties.
In the background tab , select something blue as your solid color and set the transparency to your choice. This helps blend the panel with the wallpaper.
Done that , now you have a blue panel.
Configuring your default GTK theme is easy. Click on System>Preferences>Theme.
Click on the “Theme details” button.
In the ” Controls ” tab , choose Clearlooks.
In the Window border tab , choose Human.
In the Icons tab , choose Tango.
Now , click on the close button and then save your theme as Blubuntu.
Wow , that was easy.
Do this only after you have completed the previous four steps.
That little image in the middle of the screen , that you see just after logging in , is your splash screen. They are alwasy .png images.
Download a bluish Splash Screen , or you could try my custom made Splash Screen…
Download the image to your desktop and make two copies.
Name the 1st one as ubuntu-splash , and the 2nd one as ubuntu-slick. DO NOT CHANGE THE EXTENSION.
I am assuming that your username is eric .
Now , log out.
In your new , blue login screen type your username as root.
Give your root password and login as root. ( Read Step 1. for further reference )
Navigate to /usr/share/pixmaps/splash and there rename your existing splash images to 1,2,3 or anything other that ubuntu-splash and ubuntu-slick.
Navigate to /home/eric/desktop ( I HAVE ASSUMED THAT YOUR USERNAME IS eric ). Copy the two splash images and paste them in /usr/share/pixmaps/splash
Now , log out and login.
You now have a blue login window , blue splash , blue windows , blue panel and best of all , a blue wallpaper. So right now you are the proud owner of Blubuntu…
This is what my desktop looked like…
Comments and suggestions are welcome . Oh and do tell me if it helped… If you want Ubuntu 6.10 to have a consistent blue theme , the do contribute to Ubuntu art. Here’s the link , I do say that you might find some of my work there.

If you have any doubt about it , then I am going to clear it with this post. I have had very little experience with Photoshop , one of Adobe’s most popular products and the current market leader of image editing software. I was dazzled by the flexibility of Photoshop but after that , I saw the GIMP or rather used the GIMP. I was super dazzled. It is much more powerful than Photoshop , much more flexible and much more extensive. It lives up to the tradition of all GNU freeware. It is better than the most popular software available and much ahead of it’s time. You can do things with the GIMP that you can’t even dream of with Photoshop. You can be a beginner or a professional with the GIMP. Although the user interface needs a bit of patching up, GIMP still reigns supreme.
To top it all , the GIMP is free. It has a lot of space for expansion, why ? Because of the amount of user made scripts that can be added and the tons of free extensions that are available on the web. All of my header images and the logo that I am working on are going to be made with the GIMP. There is little factoid that few people know. The original Google logo was made using the GIMP 1.0. This is the new logo that I made…
How is it ? I’d love some comments.Read Full Post | Make a Comment ( 8 so far )
I am putting down , 20 reasons as to why Harry Potter’s so famous ! Oh , do remember to read my personal comments encased in the brackets.
1. Nowhere in literary history will you find a boy so blighted, so miserable yet rich as Harry Potter.
2. He survived a murderous assault by a brain-dead sorcerer with an extremely stupid name – Voldemort. ( yuck , I wouldn’t even call my dog as Voldemort)
3. A man called Albus Dumbledore is his hero. ( He’s got waist length beard which he can’t cut because they are stronger than steel.)
4. He goes to a school called Hog-Warts. ( All the Hogs at that place are full of Warts.)
5. He flies a broomstick. ( What happened to high velocity jet-fighters..?! )
6. He becomes invisible by wearing an invisibility cloak. ( Why though ? Is he ashamed of his appearance ?)
7. He has a lightning shaped scar on his head. ( Imagine being famous because your skins been sliced open..)
8. He uses a magic wand to cast spells ( What did you expect… a magic turnip ?! )
9. He hates a greasy teacher called Snape. ( Yeah , and he can talk to snakes )
10. His friend , Ron Weasly , has a jumbo sized family. ( Maybe Harry thought that he could squeeze in and nobody would notice because of the crowd. )
11. He protected the Philosopher’s Stone. ( What about the stones of the doctors, nurses , writers and engineers ? Who’s gonna protect them ?)
12. He speaks Parseltongue ! ( Whazzat ?! Parcel what? I didn’t know he could take to parcels !)
13. He was raised by his nasty aunt and uncle. ( Who else do you think would have raised him ? A couple of rabid wolves ? He ain’t Mowgli !)
14. He’s been wearing that same pair of spectacles for the last 8 years ! ( I thought that he had a lot of money , then why doesn’t he buy a new pair…? )
15.He’s got the biggest fan following of all time ! ( No wonder he always appears so windswept )
16. His cousin is a boxing champ ! ( Ahhh , all those years of punching Harry finally paid off. )
17.His wand has a core of phoenix feather .( Thank god it ain’t dragon heartstring. Or else he would have been called as Parry Hotter )
18. He killed a basilisk in the Chamber of Secrets. ( What else would he have killed ? A mosquito !? )
19. He was put in Gryffindor house . ( Why ?! Because the White House wouldn’t take him , silly! )
Looks like I left one reason ! So why don’t you people add the twentieth reason as to why Harry Potter is famous. You can give any reason , but just make sure that it has a funny personal comment attached to it .
All Smiles ,

It is said that all the knowledge in the world is contained in the Vedas. Well , I don’t know about anything else , but it sure does rule the roost when it comes to maths. Many rules of addition , subtraction , multiplication , division , sqauring , sq. rooting , cubing , cube rooting and even calculus are mentioned in 16 sutras or slokas containing rules. These sutras are written in Sanskrit and have very deceptive double meanings. Meanings which are entirely different from maths. But these contain methods that beat even Trachtenburg’s Speed Math methods. Only experienced Abacus users can beat experienced Vedic Maths users in speed. I’ll be posting more about it pretty soon. Well , after Monday. Till then check out this site for simple tutorials and problems.
Vedic Maths Tutorial
What is Vedic Maths
Vedic Maths is based on sixteen sutras or principles. These principles are general in nature and can be applied in many ways. In practice many applications of the sutras may be learned and combined to solve actual problems. These tutorials will give examples of simple applications of the sutras, to give a feel for how the Vedic Maths system works. These tutorials do not attempt to teach the systematic use of the sutras. For more advanced applications and a more complete coverage of the basic uses of the sutras, we recommend you study one books avilable from our book store or try the correspondence course.
N.B. The following tutorials are based on examples and exercises given in the book ‘Fun with figures’ by Kenneth Williams, which is a fun introduction some of the applications of the sutras for children.
If you are having problems using the tutorials then you could always read the instructions.
Sure Google might be reigning search king right now , but will it be so after a year? Right now the search engine world is teeming with new and emerging search technologies , incorporated by various corporations. What do I see right now, Google losing it’s footing on the search engine market. Let’s all have a look at the various technologies out there….
Probably the most promising contender to overthrow Google. The search precision is better than Google and all the results are relevant , quite unlike Google. All the pages of it’s search result are satisfactory , whereas satisfactory results in Google are around 30% of the total results. This is because of the Deepsearch technology patented by the Kosmix people. Google uses a ‘one-size-fits-all’ approach to searching which turns up irrelevant and unnecessary results more often than not. Page popularity is not the only thing that determines the utility of the page , and this is where Google falters to Kosmix. In the words of the makers…..
At Kosmix, we’re passionate about building a world class search engine that lets people search less, and discover more great stuff. There are billions of pages on the web that are useful, but never see the light of day through a standard search engine. We want to help you find those great pages, and make it easy and fun to do in the process.
Of course after disposing off Jeeves , Ask has embarked on a new strategy. The third most popular search engine out there , is all set to take the crown. It has new and improved algorithms , that give out lesser but more refined results than Google. The new image search is a strong competitor. But the most amazing product of the Ask group has been Bloglines.
They say that Krugle is a ‘ Google for developers ‘, but I disagree. Krugle provides features that have not even been developed at Google. Of course it aims at developers , meaning that a huge portion of Google’s traffic is going to shift over to Krugle. Best of luck to them
As you may have discovered, this is not your typical search engine. For one thing, we encourage you to edit the search concept content. So if you have information to add, go ahead and update it. Don’t be afraid of breaking anything – you won’t! Anything that you do can be updated or fixed later. If you see something that you think is incorrect and needs to be fixed, go ahead and fix it!
We rely on lots of user interaction to help make this an incredibly useful tool for you and other users. You don’t have to edit content to help us do this. By simply clicking on a star to rate a search result, or by tagging a site that you like, you help us improve our results.
Search the Web – Powered by People
After a long wait , Bill Gates is back with a bang , this time with three major release , lined up. Internet Explorer 7, Windows Vista and….wait for it….. a new search engine which has the potential to literarily blow up Google’s hold on the internet. But then , that would be ill advised because if that happens then MS will dominate the web. Not very good is it. But competition is always welcome. In six month’s time we shall know.
Personal comments :- Personally , I want Kosmix and Google to remain an integral part of the way. A decent MSN search engine wouldn’t be bad, but and MS dominated web would be. I am planning to sitch over to Linux right now , so can anyone tell me where I could get a copy of Red Hat Linux without having to download it?
PS : Wanna listen to me singing again, then click here. Do tell me how it was.
