I’m just sitting here, waiting for an app to load. It seems that there is this new game, “DreamFall”. I asked shamanth to copy it onto my external hdd. I run the setup and it gives CRC errors. I cancel, try again. That anyway, was a very bad idea. I had cancelled at 9:35PM and started it again. It is 9:43 now, I am starting to get terribly pissed.
Also, winamp is behaving stupidly. Its on shuffle and three consecutive CTRL+ALT+PAGEDOWN’s have resulted in the same damn song.
After a month on Vista and IE7, I actually am thinking that only IE is a good idea.
9:47 PM now – That stupid setup has still not launched.
I am also starting to get very used to the “User Account Control” feature (the thing that pops up and says This program is doing yada yada yada. Did YOU launch it). I now think it is an extremely great feature – the guy who thought of a nice little dialog box po(o)ping up each time you copy a file to the C: drive is brilliant.
9:49 Now – That stupid setup has still not launched.
The new version of yahoo messenger is also very good. (No offence to the yahoo guys). It uses just 100 MB of RAM on an average and tends to go into infinite loops every now and then.
9:51 Now – That stupid setup has still not launched.
I think that this is another very innovative feature in Vista. Or perhaps I have stumbled upon a hitherto unknown easter egg. Launch DreamFall setup and your computer will slow down for a while.
Anyway, like I said, Vista rocks.
We got a washing machine the other day. I’ve never before closely followed the washing process. This little videocon one is pretty simple to use. You put water + soap + clothes. Set the timer, start it. Put the clothes + fresh water in the other tub. Start again. Put the clothes + water back in the first tub. Run again. Transfer to the other tub one last time and run it.
I think the videocon Engineers collaborated closely with the Vista engineers (or vice-versa).
9:56 Now – That stupid setup has still not launched
I was reading this Woody Allen book. (How did it understand that spelling?). Then I tried to read ChankayaNeeti by Chanakya. (Yeah, it did not udderstand that). Wasn’t much fun reading that Chanakya book. I ascribe that to the horrible English translation of the Telegu. Did I just write Telegu – I meant Sanskrit.
9:59 Now – That stupid setup has still not launched
Speaking of Telegu – I’ve been trying to make some progress learning my father tongue. I can now say….
The cursor icon changed – Hold on, Im going to ALT+TAB and check.
No, False Alarm.
… go, see, take – (po, choosko, teesko) apart from the regular swear words.
10:01 – User account control just pooped up. Its going to install ….
Nope, its gone back to the old stage – stupid shitty installer.
The other day there was this comic – (Waiting for outlook to start) –
I actually Lol’d at this.
10:04 – Setup has launched.
Im ignoring all the CRC fails.
of all the times I had to read your post carefully, this had to be one of those times X-( …rofl@ the comic strip –nice !!
itz telugu goddamit ….
How much does the washing machine cost…and whats the capcity ????
Microsoft can sue u
Yahoo can sue u
Videocon can sue u
I can sue u for spelling telugu as telegu
Okie i will stop here 😀
we all can `su u` too, halley. *ducking under the barrage of abuses*
well thats the problem when “Video”-“con” makes washing machines and “Micro”-soft makes “Vista” …
and come on ! first learn the name and then the language 😛
“This little videocon one is pretty simple to use” — omg! you call it simple 😮
… ‘choosko’, ‘teesko’ wat wat ….. ppl ppl, I guess IV gotta a telugu gf.. tu to gaya ab 😉
🙂 .. manish learnt atleast 10 times more than that telugu :D, i bet monga learnt twice of that :))
btw, how much of punjabi have u learnt ? 😛
dont bother learning telugu.. someone will come up with a runtime translator soon.. just buy that. Hopefully it will be Videocon-M$ combined effort 😛
Its T-E-L-U-G-U with a U !!
And yeah! Vista rocks ..and did u check out the new Office 2k7 … but only thing is that lots of commands are different from Office 2k3 …
Why did u post the same blog twice and you take and put your clothes back into washing machine twice and you say its simple…..:((
I guess sarcasm doesn’t exist anymore.. can he not use the word “simple” sarcastically?! gaawwddd..
Anyways, Vista sux ass.. but we’ve got awesome washing machines.. put clothes.. put 2 spoons of detergent.. and after an hour and half, we get almost dry clothes! 😀 its been almost 4 hours now and I hafta go get my clothes from the washing machine.. adios! And nice comic strip.. I laughed at it too.. creepy, eh? 😀
