My historically important "first blog"
I've been a blogger for 1 year and 49 weeks now.
It's just that I did'ne know about it.
Well, I had created this Linux Gazette account long back and I had just posted this one message:
" I just discovered this wonderful website through Google. Bless Google & Linux! Anyway, as I was fooling around I saw that GNOME is not among the Article Classification. Also saw Konquerori get a lot of attention.
Why is that so? I hope to keep coming back and write more of them. [Write some articles about Gnome! - editor]
This was the first "blog-entry" in my life.
The blog is still available here

I have a wonderful friend called Mansha, chatting with her now after a long time.
She works at Wipro, Bangalore and we are college buddies.
The Mac Mini
The Mac Mini was released by Steve Jobs during MacWorld'05
I've always wanted to use a Macintosh OS X, since I can't do that I'm doing the next best thing... Running Linux :)

LOTR: Battle for MIddle Earth
Have been playing Battle for MIddle Earth since yesterday.
Till now the game rockx! Its not a great RTS game but its good in doing all the RTS stuff.
The best feature in BFME is the emotions displayed by the units in battle.
Definitely worth the money and a must-have for a LOTR fan.
Testing out gnome-blog.
This app looks cool. No more logging into blogger.com to update my blog.
You can try it at : gnome-blog
