Last week I watched two Tamil films which changed the way of my thoughts a little bit. Engeyum Eppodhum and 7aum Arivu. Stories from both films give something to learn that all of us should understand and apply in our life.
Engeyum Eppothum is telling story about people who are travelling in two buses and those buses get into an accident because of high speed on highway route between Chennai and Trichy. It tells about the safe driving and shows how people loose their loved ones just because of a small mistakes that we make. It doesn't affect only the people who were the passengers but also to their family, relatives and loved ones. This is the second movie I've seen on Safe Driving after the Malayalam movie Traffic.
Its being 2 years since I played any computer game for last time. Now I got some games from my friend. It has Prince of Persia and GTA Vice City, Cricket 2008 and some small games like Moto GP, Super DX Ball, Mario Forever, Shaag Chess.
DX Ball is my all time favourite. Opened DX Ball in Pinguy OS GNU/Linux. Since Wine was installed by default it opened and played very smooth. Then Chess. It has two gaming mode. 2D and 3D. Because of some technical reason the 3D mode rendered very slow. So I shifted it to 2D mode. Then it played well. But the Prince of Persia did not worked. Sound was ok but the 3D rendering capabilities were not enough for this game. So rebooted to Windows 7. And both Prince of Persia and GTA Vice City played well.
When I got these games years before the system configuration were very low. So that I never got chance to play these games in high resolution in my old Lenovo desktop. Now these games works very smooth in high resolution since the my Lenovo lap's system configuration is more enough than these games' system requirements.
I got GTA Vice City's Ultimate version. And I like to play the normal version. The only difference between these two versions is the cars. Ultimate version is a special editions with sports car instead of normal cars which are in normal version. Well, for now I got to adjust with this one.
I already have Age Empire II. But have not completed the basic level yet. I've few more games with me. Quake 4, GTA San Andreas, GTA III and few more. I have to look for those DVDs and CDs which is lying somewhere at home.
But for now I'm going to relax myself with these two games if I get some time or I'll make some time.
After a short interval petrol price again got another small promotion in India. And Malayalees got a small vehicle strike. All private transport service was off. So there was no regular private bus, auto-rickshaw on road. It is not being so long since strikes became like a rites in Kerala for every small issue. So it was not big deal for us. Since many staffs in our company to office in bus it was a off day for us.
I'm not a big economist or predictor but as others do I think is this really bad. (Not the strike ok, I'm talking about the price hike.) It is really getting worse day by day.
Instead of supporting the price hike why Govt. is not focusing on alternative fuel vehicles or alternative fuels which can be used instead of petrol or diesel. Not only the Govt. should be blamed, people like us also have to realise their actual needs spend on it as much as less fuel.
Well, by this strike I got the chance to complete the downloading of Pinguy OS. And now I'm going to replace Ubuntu with that.
As it is special days for our Muslim brothers and sisters, I wish everyone a very happy Eid Mubarak and more grand wishes. :) :)
