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 site. WinHTTrack 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.
Dark Fate 2 is a singleplayer level for Doom II, replacing MAP01. It's a small-sized hellish level — and there's a walkthrough video as well.
