In a few days we will be observing the 6th Anniversary of the destruction of the Twin Towers of the World Trade Center. Many questions still remain unanswered and there are mysteries covered all over. I was sent this in an email by a colleague and it seems to have struck a chord in several people. Try it out:
Open Microsoft Word and do the following:
1. Type in upper case Q33 NY. This is the flight number of the first plane to hit one of the Twin Towers .
2. Highlight the Q33 NY.
3. Change the font size to 48.
4. Change the actual font to the WINGDINGSâ€¦â€¦â€¦â€¦â€¦â€¦â€¦â€¦
You will get this –
Plane crash, into the twin towers & death caused by the Star Of David (Symbol on the flag of Israel).
A little creepy isn’t it?
Songbird is an open source software media player that is billed as the ‘Firefox’ of media players and rightly, Mozilla is supporting it. It’s a lot like itunes, but I can’t use Apple’s iTunes since it is not yet launched in India (and rest of Asia, if I’m not mistaken). Firefox users will find it quite similar, since the two softwares use the same infrastructure and in useage feels a lot like a browser. I downloaded Songbird, having read about this tool from Modsuperstar (thanks James) and on reading about it, promptly downloaded the free desktop Web player, which is also a digital jukebox and Web browser mash-up. Like Winamp, it supports extensions and skins feathers.
Songbird is a Cross Platform player supporting Windows, Mac, Linux available in 30+ languages as well as providing 64-bit support. The music browser and player works well enough, and has context menus when you right-click on your files which allow you to search on music related websites, and search Google for the lyrics of your songs. Try it out.
1. If you could be there to change just one event in history, what would it be?
a. Hmmm, there’s quite a few wars, a few massacres & accidents & other stuff. Maybe a sporting loss? Ok, the invasion of Kuwait by Iraq, for obvious reasons.
2. If you could be any actor or actress who ever lived, who would it be, and why?
a. Tough choice, I have favourite film roles but to pick just one actor? William Shattner. He was famous in the 60’s, 70s, 80s, a lull in the 90s but he bounced back with his role as ‘Denny Crane’ in Boston Leagal and getting rave reviews & making new fans at the age of 75 & is still a great tv star now in the 21st century. Plus , come on, he was / is / and will always be ‘Captain James T Kirk’.
3. What was your favorite Saturday morning cartoon show?
a. The obvious one – Tom & Jerry but I also loved The Flinstones & Looney Tunes equally.
4. Beatles or Rolling Stones?
a. I was never a big fan of the Stones, although I love a few of their songs. So it’s the Beatles all the way.
5. If you could be any fictional literary figure ever, who would it be?
a. Bond….James Bond
I really wanna go to Springfield and become a character in the Simpsons world. I found another cool application online at the official Simpsons Movie website, where you can customize your own Simpsons avatar and create really cool looking characters that would look at home in Springfield. To the left is what I created of an avatar of mine that would be cool and to the left is a more realistic avatar of mine, size wise! Oh and the colours of the outfit that I am wearing is more inline with the original Battlestar Galactica Colonial Warrior uniforms. Having completed watching the first season of the new BSG has made me even more nostalgic for the original series & their much beloved characters. Sigh!
Song for the day – “Do The Bartman” – BART SIMPSON
Seems like my website is rated G for General Audiences by this site, which lets you rate your blog / website according to movie ratings. I am surprised at the rating that they gave mine – it says that it was rated on the words dead (2x) & dangerous (1x) that appear in my blog. Apparently, they don’t search beyond a few posts or just the front page, since I have used quite a few swear words and stuff off & on. Anyway that’s what it says, so come one children, come and browse through Uncle Roshan’s blog :)

|You scored as Angel. Angel: Angels are the guardians of all things, from the smallest ant to the tallest tree. They give inspiration, love, hope, and positive emotion. They live among humans without being seen. They are the good in all things, and if you feel alone, don’t fear. They are always watching. Often times they merely stand by, whispering into the ears of those who feel lost. They would love nothing more then to reveal themselves, but in today’s society, this would bring havoc and many unneeded questions. Give thanks to all things beautiful, for you are an Angel.

Great Firewall of China is a website located in the United Kingdom which enables you to know if your site or any for that matter is censored in China. I found out about this link in Mikeboon.com and Mike also has the domain name TorontoMike.com
devil in a blue dress movie which leads to his website. The first one was blocked but the second, being newer I guess, was not.
It is estimated that some 30,000 Chinese civil servants are monitoring Internet traffic and blocking content that is deemed undesirable. Typing in sensitive keywords such as ‘democracy’, ‘Falun Gong’ or ‘porno’ in a search engine results in an error message. Websites of a sensitive nature are being blocked. Internet service providers also (self)censor, as do individuals: many people do not express their real thoughts because they know these will be censored anyway.
Maybe I should use a few more swear words and profile my favourite porn stars or give detailed praises about Democracy!

I got the link to this funny &, might I say, yummy online application, through Jeffery Simpson where you can make yourself into an M & M – any colour shell that you like. Everyone loves M&Ms, right? I looked through the various options that they have and decided on a light brown colour, hair that is somewhat like my own (only the hairline is receding like anything), spectacles to kind of match mine, a sheepish grin that I kind of have on my face from time to time & a cell phone. They have a choice of accessories that you can chose (although the choices are limited) that best suits your lifestyle or work. I chose the cellphone – not because I own one or use it all the time, silly! But it’s because that I have now completed three years in this industry and I do love this industry a lot (inspite of the idiotic & demanding customers who want the sun, the moon on 10p & the stars as a complements) and I see myself continuing it for a further more years. How do you like it? Does it look like me? You can get one yourself at this link!
