• KDE for Windows

    The computer desktop is an essential part of our computing experience. It is the starting point, the home page, the single point in space-time continuum that we can come back to. That’s all very good. But the Windows desktop looks old. Despite so many changes and developments in interface technology,...

  • More 3D pics from my Leh trip

    Remember my post about Stereoscopic 3D? I have processed more such photos on the occasion of my family trip to Leh, Ladakh. Use your typical red-blue 3D glasses to view: If I had known they’d turn out so great, I would have made time to take more pictures. To see...

  • Windows Live Writer

    I haven’t been blogging much, have I? I have missed a lot of wonderful posts I could have made, like reviews of my new 22 inch LCD monitor, my Logitech MX-518 gaming mouse, my new desk (well, modified the old one), my Sennheiser HD201 circumaural headphones, my wonderful phone Nokia...

  • An old half-coocked game in Pyglet: Ship Showdown!

    My interest in role playing games and the fact that I use the alias “Fantasist” online (a.k.a loves RPGs) led me to a nice program called RPG Maker 2000, and then to RPG Maker XP (both by Enterbrain) and they finally showed me the way to game development. I’ve messed...

  • Stereoscopic 3D

    Howdy, folks! It’s been a while since my last post. Well, I’ve been busy, but I’ve been lazier, hehe :D Anyway, most of you might have seen the Avatar movie, and in 3D too, probably. Wasn’t the experience amazing? I wouldn’t know, because I only got to see the 2D...

  • Windows 7: The Best Windows Yet

    The Windows 7 boot screen. It’s an animated glowing flag. Windows 7 is the best Windows yet, I mean it. I haven’t personally checked the resource consumption in relation to XP, but everything is fast and responsive. I still don’t believe the boot time, it’s way faster than XP at...

  • Xbox 360 Controller for Windows: Review

    I bought it recently (7-Jan-2010), as I mentioned in my other post. I did some research as I did with my graphics card (though not that much, I really went all out then) and the reviews and reception seemed to be very good. My other choice was the Saitek Cyborg...

  • The new brains for my machine

    On my 18th birthday, I got the best birthday present I ever received: a bank account, with a checkbook, debit card and all. It was a bit intimidating but satisfying all the same. For my 19th birthday, I got the second-best birthday present. I got a new CPU for our...
