My Swanky Windows Desktop

Subbu and myself were constantly exchanging talks on IM about that _perfect_ theme for Windows. A couple of days later, I think I found my perfect theme (although he still wants something non-Ubuntu-ish). Here’s how my Windows XP looks like:

Ubuntu Human Windows XP

What I used: Other than the fact that I’m obviously running on Windows XP Service Pack 2, I used: What you need to do: Everything else after downloading the required software is fairly simple. Extract the theme files to C:\Windows\Resources\Themes\ and change the theme via desktop Properties -> Appearance. Install Object Dock and set it up to your liking. To get the taskbar at the top, just right-click on it, uncheck the Lock the Taskbar option, and then drag the taskbar to the top of your screen. Lock it again if you like. You could further make your Windows look like Ubuntu by using the Human Firefox 2.0.4 theme, Tango Patcher icons (edit: my Avast AV detected it as a virus), and the Human Opera 9 theme by charraoalegria. If you want to take it even further, go get Ubuntu and run it just like we all do. :| However, the music directory in the background is not available for download, atleast by me. :P

Santo.sh – My New Tumblelog

Santosh MicroblogI always wanted a nice, unique domain to compliment my name. What better way than to register the domain Santo.SH and take my first step into web2.0. ;) Some people said that I wasted my money, but hey, who the heck are they to tell me what to do with my money? :P I like my new domain, I think most of my friends will like what I post there, and that’s all what I care about. Santo.SH will be my microblog aka Tumblelog powered by Tumblr. I’ll be posting short nuggets of information, useful links, and loads of hilarious photos and some cool videos as well. I felt a microblog was necessary since most of the information won’t warrant an entire blog post on this blog. Plus, a microblog saves me (and you) loads of time. :D You can subscribe to the microblog feed here.

Sporty Weekend

If you have a love for sports, this weekend is a real treat. Formula One, Tennis, and Football are all here this weekend. Saturday turned out to be a spectacular day for F1 and Tennis, with Louis Hamilton clinching a superb P1 at the last minute, and Serbia’s Ana Ivanovic defeating Russia’s Dinara Safina in the women’s final match of the French Open, Roland Garros. kimi-raikkonen-ferrari

Roger Federer

Sunday looks promising already. The big one — Roger Federer vs. Rafael Nadal facing off in the men’s final of the French Open (tonight at 7 pm), promises to be a real treat to watch. It’s Federer’s narrow 6-2, 5-7, 6-3, 7-5 win against Gael Monfils, against Rafael Nadal’s dominant 6-4, 6-2, 7-6 (3) victory over Novak Djokovic that clearly shows who has the edge for today’s game. What’s more, Nadal has NEVER lost at the Roland Garros. Right after the final, Race Day kicks of at the Circuit Gilles Villeneuve, Canada, (at 10.30 pm) with the big 4 – Hamilton, Kubica, Raikkonen and Alonso on the first two grids. With everybody complaining about the poor track condition, one can expect lots of spins and perhaps a crash or two as the race progresses on. If Saturday’s qualifying session was anything to go by, Race Day will sure as hell be exciting. Oh, and about the Euro 2008, somebody please fill me in on the action. I’m not following the Euro 2008. And also, with all the action going on, did I miss something? Cricket perhaps?
