I happend to meet Karthik Gopalan (aka KG) online so we decided to give talk a try. I was absolutely amazing. Much much better than what is currently given by yahoo or MSN, I havent tried Skype but this is really quite good, what is even better the size of the app is just 900K.

Error 1714 - while installing iTunes

I was getting 'Error 1714' while installing iTunes I guess it has something to do with the fact that I manually deleted the folder c:\windows\Downloaded Installations\

Since this folder was taking up a lot of HD space on the C drive
Now since I didnt that I couldnt install iTunes updated version since the iTunes installer was loooking for an older version of iTunes to uninstall it and it couldnt find the older installer at c:\windows\Downloaded Installations\

So I downloaded Windows Installer CleanUp Utility that did some clean up.

Stopped by the cops again at Tower Hill Tube Station

I think I am the chosen one since I was stopped again by a cop today but this time it was the Tube station and not the DLR station.
This cop started asking me stuff and then I told him that I had allready been searched, he had a stupid look on his face and I told me that I was searched on friday and he asked me if I had the ticket with me so I showed it to him. He then said that he was sorry and he said that I do have a big bag with me ( big ??? it is just a normal sized bag, and nothing much in it ), told him that if he still wanted to have a look inside he definately can. He said that he said that it was ok and he let me go.
