Computer Games

I have started playing Prince of Persia 2 again on quite a regular basis, I think it is since I was sick this weekend so I had a lot of time on my hands. I have finished about 85% of the game and it has a nice twist, I guess there are more Twists later on too. I am really keen on finding out how the story pans out.
I just happend to search on the net and found out that they are working on Prince of Persia 3,and it is going to be released Q4 2005 and then in Q3 2006 for the PC, which is really bad since I was hopping that it would be released at the same time in all the platforms.

GTA SA is comming out for the PC, so that is going to be really good.

There is also another games posters that I have been seeing - Pariah

Enterprise - In a Mirror, Darkly

Really like the introduction to this episode of Enterprise, It had a darker theme something similar to Prince of Persia Warrior Within.
Well I have not see the complete episode so I dont know how good it is gonna be.

Google Maps UK

This is really good, I wonder if they provide a Web Service or XML based interface into their maps and location based services.

Have a look at Linux Admin's post

And then have a look at Paul Rademacher's Housing site that uses google maps, it is totaly mind blowing.
Even the guys at google are shocked, I cant figureout how he did it ???

It is totally amazing.

I did some searching around and found this

Nifty way to view Firefox configuration

Noticed it first at Google Web Search Features

MSN Spaces

This is quite good since it is linked into the chat application which is really quite nice. Comming to think about that I wonder if one could hack into MSN Messenger 7 so that when we a user clicks on MSN spaces it opens up and not MSN Spaces Blog space. That would be interesting.

Another thing that I noticed was that it had a size limit on the number of images that can uploaded.

I wonder when Google is going to come out with a chat application.
I would assume that it has all the normal chat features like
- Chat
- Audio and Video
- File Transfer ( better than what MSN and Yahoo Offer )
- Chat room
- Making Phone calls
- Blogging
- Searching
- Viewing Music Vidoes
- Listening to Radio
- Online Gaming.

Interesting things about Google Desktop Search

I notices that Google Desktop Search connects to the internet at times. I wonder what it is sending ?

Another interesting that whenever I go to and search for something, the first line contains Google Desktop search results. So when we search for something using Google the same search is performed on our local machine, I wonder how it does that ?

Fabric Painting after a long time

I liked this T-Shirt a lot, I managed to get a Black T-Shirt and paint it on the back. Though I really wanted to paint in on the front but the T-Shirt allready had 'CAT' in the front.

I think i posted about this T-Shirt a while back.

The Chronicles of Riddick: Escape From Butcher Bay

Just played the demo version of this game and it is realy quite good. I really liked Vin Diesel dialogs. What I also liked about it is the menu system, that was something really quite good and inovative.
