Black Coffee - Tea cocktail with Ginger and Lemon

Friday · 8 Oct 04 · 11:38 AM IST | Posted by Karthik | Category: General

Yesterday, Anirudh and myself executed our plan of having a unique "cocktail" at the TAPMI Canteen.  I ordered a Double Black Coffee with Lemon, he ordered a Double Black Tea with Ginger, then we took two empty glasses, mixed it and enjoyed the resulting beverage!

That aside, the past couple of days I have been working on CricInfin, a game designed by the Finance Forum and being implemented by TSG (TAPMI Systems Group).  Raju did practically all the coding for it, and I added some finishing touches (graphics, aesthetics, some minor scripting).  TSG also launched the TAPMI Intranet Portal yesterday and it has been getting good feedback.

My computer should be back today.  This probably means that I will spend more time in the hostel, rather than practically living in the Systems Lab.

Over the last few days, I have been downloading several comics from this siteWinHTTrack is a wonderful program, and I am downloading these comics using that.  I had trouble getting it working earlier.  Then I installed Mozilla Firefox and Opera on the computer I generally work on in the Systems Lab.  Mozilla also refused to work initially.  Opera said "Importing your Proxy settings...", which was very considerate of it!  I used the same settings in Mozilla and HTTrack and they started working!  The result?  About 1.8 GB worth of comics downloaded over three days!!

A couple of days back, I also downloaded DOSBox, which is an emulator for DOS, and can be used to run DOS programs on Windows XP/2000 and the like.  The cool thing is that it also emulates the old sound hardware, as a result of which I was able to play Biomenace and Duke Nukem II Shareware with sound!!  Should try out Commander Keen now...

Varun seems to be adjusting well to his Engineering course.  I still haven't sent him the CDs and sweatshirt that I have been meaning to.  I will try to do that today.

Hello this is somewhat of off topic but I was
wanting to know if blogs use WYSIWYG editors or if you have to manually code with
HTML. I'm starting a blog soon but have no coding expertise
so I wanted to get guidance from someone with experience.
Any help would be enormously appreciated!

Today, I went to the beach front with my kids.
I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said "You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear." She put the shell to her ear and screamed.
There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear.
She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is completely off topic but I had to tell
