This Friday, I met a very cute girl at Onnela. After a little chat, I offered her a drink which she accepted. After some introductory chat, it was quite obvious to me that she was as much attracted towards me as i was towards her. Soon we were kissing each other. We spent the whole night together at the club. It seemed so perfect to me and i thought the big gap of my life is about to be filled. When i asked her if we'll meet again, she said she was too tired to think about it. It's been two days that i am calling her, but she won't pick up the phone. I tried to convince myself things like "these things happen" and "it's nothing so big" but i think my heart has taken this very seriously and it won't listen to me. I also found it hard to concentrate on my work the whole day. I hope I'll be able to forget her in a few days.
Mac Mini and Me
Some guy at our office was selling his Mac Mini and was ready to take the payment in parts, so i thought i should also become part of the elite. Sooner i realized that I might be paying a big price for being a part of 'elite'. I consulted some docs. on the Internet regarding how to get a dual-boot working, but seems they were old (at least compared to the newest version of Ubuntu). I also went through a lot of trouble to get DVDs to play on the Ubuntu. I tried both totem (with both backends) and mplayer but only got successful in getting it to play in totem-gstreamer (no Ronald, don't get happy yet :)) but seems totem is unable to handle the in-movie menus. I do wonder how these menus inside the movies work and how a media-player supports them.
War Of The Worlds (WOTW)
When i heard of WOTW, the image i got in mind was of the famous film-series that I was really crazy about in my childhood. Since the movie is also based on the same novel as that film-series, I thought seeing it would bring-up many good memories of my childhood. But to my despair, it was a total crap (TM). I wonder what made Spielberg make such a ridiculous movie.
