World’s Fastest Car – Bugatti Veyron


Quite Ironic i must say , at a time when the leading car makers in india are competing hard to manufacture Cheap cars like Tata Nato and Renault’s Yeni, Volkswagen owned Bugatti  launches its fastest and Costliest car here in India – Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Grand Sport .

And With this release , Bugatti Veyron becomes the best in Super sports category. According to the official site, Veyron is by far the most sophisticated production vehicle , ofcourse none can match the one that Batman owns 😀 .

Isn’t She Sexy ?? 😛

This Sizzling beauty can reach a top speed of 407 Kmph.  Yes, you heard me right. You can reach 0-100 kmph in just 2.5 seconds . If thats not enough to amaze it takes just2.3 seconds to reach from a speed of 100 kmph to 0 . Bugatti Veyron’s 16 litre engine generates a whopping 1000 Horse power.

Technical Specifications:

Cylinder capacity 7993 cm³
Power output 736 KW (1001 hp) at 6000 U/min
Max. torque 1250 Nm at 2200–5500 U/min
Gearbox 7 Gear DSG
Top speed 407 km/h
Acceleration
0–100 km/h 2.5 sec
0–200 km/h 7.3 sec
0–300 km/h 16.7 sec
Fuel type Super lead free 98 RON/ROZ

Bugatti Veyron would Cost a whopping 16 Crore INR (aprx 3.5 Million $). I read in todays Newspaper that you could buy a Whole island incaribbean with that amount of money 😛 Isn’t that something 😉 ? :mrgreen:

Anyways i think Only the tata’s , the ambani’s and yeah, the malya’s would be eying on it just to have it parked somewhere along with other collectibles as i am sure there’s is no way you could drive those on Indian Roads.

First Maybach, then Harley davidson bikes and now the fastest car – Bugatti Veyron.  This actually brings us to a point where it would be quite apt to say that automobiles are now the new status symbol in India, which is fast rising in the most number of billionaires list.

 

 

Enthiran (ROBOT) – Movie Review


No Spoilers !!

I cant think of  any movie that was being as eagerly awaited as this one and why not, just look at the names of the People Behind the Movie – Rajnikanth , Director Shankar, Aishwarya Rai , A. R. Rahman , Yuen Woo Ping as the stunt coordinator , Stan Winston Studios (special effects) and not to mention the Production house  SUN Pictures which backed the whole project with a whopping Indian Rupee symbol.svg160 Crores (and for the worldwide publicity) . And when names like these come together its natural to have an expectation beyond imagination.

Its not everyday, that your friend calls you  for a movie like Enthiran saying that he has got tickets for  weekend night show, at possibly , the best theater in the city. You dont get luckier than this 🙂 . And It is even more unlikely that during a time like this when you are high on mood waiting for the spectacle to began you realize that you are sitting on the Very First Row of the theater  😛 . You just feel like standing on the seat and to Cry out loud.. “MAAPU !!! Vichitaaan da Aaapu” 😛 . I guess this was only thing i regretted for the next 3 hours.

The movie sure ,unlike the other movies in the past, has lived upto its expectations (i mean my expectations 😛 )  . Before seeing the movie i had got a little “not so” promising remarks about the first half of the movie but i believe it could not have got any better.  All Credits to Director Shankar for believing in his script and waiting for almost  a decade for making this Historical movie Which might well be the opening for Sci- Fi Movies in the indian Cinema.  The Sheer flamboyance of Shankar’s direction can be seen in movie everywhere right from the Scene one. The locations for the songs couldn’t have been better  especially the ” kathal Anukkal “ which has been shot GOD KNOWS WHERE (please enlighten me ). I have never seen Special effects of such Quality in indian cinema ( Mind you, i am a big hollywood fan so i wont compare it to hollywood standards :mrgreen: ) although i feel , had the movie been under Hollywood Productions , the special effects could have been even better with even more budget 😀 . Stunt sequences were awesome ,the train one in particular ( leave alone the ROBO rajni running on the train 🙂 ) and I am really tired of actually saying that the music is good 🙂 . When A.R . Rahman is the Music Director, it has more or less become a default compliment associated with him 🙂 .

Rajnikanth politely declared in Enthiran why he is still acting at 60 . Although the movie is not exactly the Stereotype movies he normally selects , he has carried the whole movie and taken it to a different level altogether .  Sometimes it is really irritating to  find people mocking rajni and his so called exaggerated stunt scenes .  Yes,  he might have done something overboard but everyone in the industry too have done that at one point or the other, so why pick this man out. Better than mocking i think all those people should consider watching his old movies :X . Anyways lets come back  to the review, Rajni obviously stole the show through his ROBO character ” CHITTI ” . Honestly , there was nothing much in the movie when we talk about the performances. Almost 80 percent of the scenes has Ranji in it . I just felt as if there were just 3 characters in the whole movie (two of them being Rajni 😀 ).  Unbelievable but true.  There aren’t many Indian movies where you would actually be enjoying a villain’s character and i can assure  you that this one is one such kind .

Songs although wonderfully shot, sometimes appear to have been introduced just for the visual treat, like the “kilimanjaro” which seem to have no proper reason of being there.  Some action sequences in the climax too appear baseless but in indian cinema you are bound to watch those even though u dont like it 🙂  and yeah the funniest of all where Rajni talks to a mosquito ,it is actually not something that i expected from shankar’s movie 😛 .

Inspite of those things that i mentioned above i wouild still rate the  movie 7 out of 10. Please do watch the movie just to witness -the flamboyance shankar has given to the indian cinema,   life that Rajni gave to the ROBO character called Chitti ,  Music that was equally complimented by the superb locations they were shot and may be, on a lighter note , even for the kisses Aishwarya Gives to Rajni (almost double her age) 🙂 .

My Friendly advice for those  who love to watch a movie just to find logic behind the scenes is just avoid the movie rather than lamenting later 🙂 and yeah, once again for all those Who dont like Rajni, you should start watching his earlier movies first 🙂 .

And I being a Rajnikant Fan would be surely watching it once again ( atleast ) 🙂

 

PS: Did I say that one of scenes in the movie was shot at My office (Olympia Tech Park, Guindy 🙂 )

MY PC IS ALLERGIC TO ANTI-VIRUS SOFTWARE !!! :(


Welcome back after the short Diwali break . I hope u had a rocking time with ur family 🙂 .

Well, the pic on the left is exactly how i am feeling right now cuz my PC is really fucked up.  It  is having a strange problem when it comes to compatibility with anti virus softwares , Seems strange huh ??  ITs true . My PC starts acting weirdly when ever i have an anti virus installed in it . The anti virus has turned out to be Anti Os for my case :D.

IT all started about six months back when i had installed AVG anit virus , the crappiest anti virus of all time , My OS was stable but it used to take a whopping 40-50 MB of my memory for one of its process . Thats too much considering that i just have a 256 DDR ram . Being a game freak i was not able to play any games . The game used to crash after sometime because of low memory . And moreover The anit virus never found the virus even though i know there were many 😛 . SO i decided to remove the anit virus .

My system was happy as soon as i uninstalled AVG and it started working normally . For many months i dint install any anit virus . And IT should have stayed like that But unfortunately one fine morning i decided to use kasperesky . and guess what , My pc fell ill again . It used to restart every 30 minutes or so automatically . Sometimes even before that . Yeah , the mighty anti-virus seems to have some differences with my OS 😦 . So i removed it too .

And my system started working fine again as good as new . DAMN !! what a crazy system I have !! Anyways i decided never to install any anti virus again . But Yesterday when i tried to connect my W810i to my freinds PC to transfer some Photos ,it showed some alert .Apperantly my memory card had a virus . I was impressed so i came back home and tried that anti virus Bit Defender pro . It took hell lot of time to install and finally when i scanned my PC it showed one VIrus/trojan and quarantined it . It was the first time any anit virus software had detected a virus since the day i had installed SP2 . Then when i restarted the System after boot up it showed an error .Cannot find windows script file C:/windows/system32/virusremoval.vbs .Thats when the problem started again . AS soon as the error popped up ,my Desktop disappeared . And since then my Desktop/taskbar/applications are playing hide and seek with me . I tried uninstalling the BIt diffender but no use . Apperantly the stupid anti virus deleted some system file too .along with the virus.  I thought of  system restore but guess what   there were no restore points . Can u beleive it ??  The only option left is to reinstall the OS but I need to get rid of 2 problems .First , I need to backup some of the files that are still stored in C drive but the Mycomputer wouldn’t open 😦 .Second , I have the OS on DVD and my DVD drive isn’t working 😦 .

How helpless can a man get ??

The only thing working fine are my speakers and my modem 😦 . Even now ,my firefox is running without a desktop in the background 😛 . IT took 15 minutes to find a way to open the browser . Wow, amidst all this i have successfully written a post . Anyways i am leaving now … Got to do something with my system .

How To Play Counter strike online ?


D

go go go !!! 😀

Now the major problem people face when it comes to playing counter strike is they dont know how to play it online . I faced this problem when i started and almost all the newbies face it too .

Why online ???

Yes, you do have bots with whom u can play with but then artificial intelligence of the computer players isn”t that good . It provides u with easy,normal hard and expert modes but it will soon get monotonous as the stratergies of computer are preprogrammed .You can experiece real thrill  when u play against humans .

How to play online

There are 3 ways i know ,that can be used for playing counter strike online

Steam

Non steam

Garena

hamachi

STEAM

  1. Get urself a original CS(Anthology pack ) which costs around 400-500 bucks .
  2. GO to Steam powered site and click on Get steam now (free download) .
  3. Once u download the client . Install it and then  get a free account .
  4. Go to settings and activate ur account by entering ur product key that u got with the CS pack .
  5. Launch the game and hit find servers . Join any game and enjoy .. another way is to use the console section which get by pressing `  ,once the window opens u can type connect followed by the ip address of steam servers . You can find the IP address on Game monitor site.

STeam is the best option to play online as u get very less pings which helps the game to be lag free .

However ,if u are miser enough then i would advice u to try the methods below

NON STEAM

It is the simplest one. You need not have an original copy of CS to play .Download it  free or borrow from ur freind and you are ready to play online . Hit the Find servers option  . You will get a list of servers which can be filtered using the filters option.

99 percent of the servers in the list will be chinese,malasian,korean and japanese .SO if u are from india most of the times u will be kicked out of the servers due to high ping .Or else you wont be able to join because most of those servers are sxe protected . Sxe is a anti-hack tool that prevents players from hacking . So download sxe client and run it before u join the game .

Non steam servers are hard to find . A guy must have created a dedicated non steam server . If you have a stable connection you can try creating non steam server through this process .

GARENA

Garena is a gaming client that connects thousands of gamers across the world and the best feature is ,it can be used for various games like Age of empires ,Call of Duty , Warcraft (DOTA) etc .It Creates a vitural lan between all the people who are using the client .

  1. Go here and download Garena.exe .
  2. Next,run the exe file and install the client .
  3. Now get yourself a free user name and password on the official garena site .
  4. Using the ID and password login into the client .
  5. GO to settings and in game exe area select the Hl.exe file .
  6. Next go to lobby and select counter strike 1.6 and join ur country room .For indians – go to international -> V.street room
  7. Now from the client start the game .
  8. In the game ,go to console window by pressing ` and type SLIST . You will be able to see a lot of servers with numbers along with it  . Join any game by typing – CONNECT followed by the  server’s position  for ex . for server no 3 type CONNECT 3.  OR you can join server using  ur LAN section too  but i have found that many servers does not get displayed there .

Servers can be laggy while played through this .However u can make it a little better by right clicking host id and then going to Optimize connection->tunnel or anti-spike .If it still lags quit the server and join another and if u are not satisfied still buy original CS and get a steam :D. Better Internet connection would help too .

HAMACHI CLIENT

  1. Download Hamachi from here .
  2. After installing it , create a network using the option below in the hamachi window  or else u can join existing netwrok of ur friends .If u have created the netwrok u need to invite people to join ur network.
  3. Now u can join a  server by using the command Connect host_IPaddress . Remember that IP address should be the one hamachi shows not ur computer IP address  . for ex- connect 5.135.23.34 and if u create the server ask ur netwrok freinds to connect using ur hamachi ip_address .
  4. Now sometimes while trying to connect u get class C errors whihc happens when the first 2 sections of ip address are not same . so for that the host need to do the following steps
  • Go to window and check the box show advanced options .
  • Then right click on the players name and click on advanced.
  • On the Peer VPN alias box enter the first three parts of ur(if u are the host,otherwise host;s address ) Hamachi IP address and  add the last part of the player’s IP address such that it is different from other players .

For ex – you are the host , ur IP is 5.24.23.122 and the player who wishes to join has and address 5.36.34.456 then all u need to is set is IP as 5.24.23.1 using VPN alias box .similarly for other players u can change the last part as 2,3,4 etc.

well,thats all i can share with you .I hope it will be helpful to you.

Enjoy playing counter strike online .
