My World Gets Spiffier

Yup, if you’re reading this you obviously must have noticed the new theme for my blog, My World. I’d been using a slightly modified version of Seven theme, since the inception of My World. I really liked the theme, but it was kinda broken, and with AdBlock Plus addon my blog had a rather bland appearance. Santosh told me its about time I changed my theme but I wasn’t getting enough time to search for a decent theme, as I’ve been facing rather strict deadlines off late.

There were several speculations as to what the splash screen could be: a new series, World of Warcraft: Wrath of the Lich King, Starcraft 2 or even Diablo III. After 5 days of torture and tease here’s the final splash:

Yeah that’s right, twenty freakin’ minutes, and this is just a “teaser”. The devs claim that FarCry 2 has over 50 square kilometers of open area, over 100 missions, and over 50 hours of gameplay(what’s with everything being a multiple of 50, I wonder). The game looks awesome though, and devs claim that still lot of work needs to be done - which was apparent from the demo, as it crashed mid-way during the demo, and there was lot of tearing and.

Another email forward that I’d got today. Absolutely awesome stuff. Direct copy paste from the mail.

There was a World wide survey of "Most Embarrassing Moment in human life" and the final three incidents are ….

Third Place

It was the day before my eighteenth birthday. I was living at home, but my parents had gone out for the evening, so I invited my girlfriend over for a romantic night alone. As we lay in bed after making love, we heard the
Telephone ringing downstairs. I suggested to my girlfriend that I give her piggy-back ride to the phone. Since we didn't want to miss the call, we didn't have time to get dressed. When we got to the bottom of the stairs, the lights
Suddenly came on and a whole crowd of people yelled "SURPRISE!? My entire family, uncles, grandparents, cousins and all of my friends were standing there! My girlfriend and I were frozen to the spot in a state of shock and embarrassment!
For what seemed like an eternity. Since then, no-one in my family has planned a surprise party again.

Most of you must be knowing that I’ve been working at 3i Infotech for about 11 months now. Yup 11 months – that’s how long I’ve been in Chennai – can’t believe, but I’ll save that post for later. As per the 3i’s joining conditions, I would be a trainee for a minimum of a year, though the trainee period maybe extended.

[How To] Removing Worm/Womble.D – Virus/Worm
· β˜• 3 min read · ✍️ Sathyajith Bhat

Well as mentioned here my system was infected by this worm, so I thought I’d do a short post on how to fix this, as most Anti Virus Programs don’t get rid of this cleanly.

First thing, if you’re on the internet, GO OFFLINE! Disconnect, switch off the modem/router, pull the LAN/USB cable, just go offline. This is critical. Why you may ask?
