Awaiting Windows 7 RC

Well, I am all set to dump the Windows Vista Business (which I had purchased along with my laptop :( ). I have made a list of Programs (will post the list later) that I need to install once I get hands on Win7 RC. Hopefully all of them work…

The D-Date is 30th April for MSDN/TechNet Subscribers… and for it will be available for Public download on 5th May (as of now).

Update 1 (30 April, 09 : 2240 hrs IST) : Got the link ! Started to download... yippie..
Update 2 (1 May, 09 : 0020 hrs IST) : Got the ISO. Burning it now..., taking a back up of my HDD, need to burn Dell Recovery disk too !
Update 3 (last few hours till 1 May, 09 : 0800 hrs IST) : Backup took 3.5 hours :( .I was quite tired and slept after starting the installation at around 0430 hrs). Cant comment on the installation time, since wasnt awake. When i woke at 0800 hrs, couple of Next clicks and there I am with Windows 7 RC. Fully loaded. No need to set up Internet, it found by itself. Pretty fast I must say. I dint have time to play around with it. Dozed off again just to wake up 2 hrs later scampering for Office :p.


PhotoResizer (mini Release)

Hi All,

Going very slow on the development of PhotoResizer, here is a very small release. Actually it has no new features. But now onwards, you don’t need to install PhotoResizer. Its now freely distributable as an standalone EXE. :) – a request that has been pending since long time. The EXE is around 350 KB in size and requires .NET Framework 2.0 to run.

Hope to hear more comments/feedback/feature requests in near future.

IPL Season 2 is here !

Hi all,

IPL Season 2 starts on 18th April ‘09 with Mumbai Indians taking on Chennai Superstars at 4pm IST. Well Mumbai Indians definitely left a mark last season but wasn’t just enough. The winning streak started rather very late. I hope this season they get themselves going from the start. Its among the best team among the lot.

With new faces this season from the Auction saw side swapping players for Shikar Dhavan (from Delhi Daredevils, in lieu of Ashish Nehra), Zaheer Khan (from Bangalore Royal Challengers, in lieu of Robin Uthappa) and also added new players like Mohhamed Ashraful, JP Duminy and Kyle Mills. Shaun Pollok takes over an added responsibility of Mentor for the Team.
