Teleport Destinations #3

Monday · 30 Oct 06 · 03:09 AM IST | Posted by Karthik | Category: General

A variety of links for you to visit, in this installment of Teleport Destinations!

  • Many hours of my day today were taken up by this very interesting online puzzle called Klueless2, which is part of IIM Indore's event IRIS (the Flash intro contains Clint Mansell's "Requiem for a Dream/Requiem for the Ring" musical theme!).  Kamal pointed me to this game, and the two of us were chatting using Google Talk and trying to solve it.  I've currently given up after reaching Level 9.
  • Firefox 2 crosses 2 million downloads within the first 24 hours of release, reports Slashdot, but then there is also this follow-up story called Nine Reasons to skip Firefox 2.  Regardless of that, I am currently happily using Firefox 2.
  • Also through Slashdot, I downloaded the Nerdcore Hip-Hop Halloween EP.  Haven't listened to all the songs yet, but they seem good.
  • Speaking of Halloween, Merrill Rainey has a very cool desktop wallpaper and other related stuff on his site.
  • "If it's Halloween, it must be Saw" — Bloody-Disgusting's review of Saw III also has great praise for this movie.
  • AICN posted a review for Evil Dead: The Musical with a video!  Groovy.
  • Again from Slashdot, this article talks about a method that allows for one to literally "sketch" and materialise objects!
  • And I'm downloading the recently released Linux distribution, Ubuntu 6.10 (Edgy Eft) now.  Look at the Wikipedia page for interesting information on Ubuntu, especially the cool codenames for the releases (Warty Warthog, Hoary Hedgehog, Breezy Badger, Dapper Drake, etc.)!

Until next time, then!
