5. Starting place of the San Marcos river. Its a restricted area for swimming or fishing. Just back side of the apartment. Nim's working place is far right hand side of the area. Just 500M from here, but when we want to walk there only way is to use the normal vehicle route, its abt 2Km, will take abt 20min to walk over there. Great idea to have a boat and just cross the river to go there.... ;) if possible

Hindi Movie Songs by Open Maze

Who loves to hear Hindi Movie Songs and all types of Hindi songs, classics, remix, Telugu, Malayalam etc? www.raaga.com is the best place. You know why, I found number of songs including an Index for Hindi movies, different categories of songs etc in Raaga. Its really cool to hear some Asian voice, from far away here at Texas.
I'm not really a Hindi Song lover, except there are several songs that I love to hear, whenever I have a free time. Do you know what is my favorite Hindi song? Guess? It's an old Hindi song, but not the old classic version, but the remix version of the song is the one I love listen to. Its called "Dil kya kare jab kisse se". It was first sung by Kishore Kumar, for the Hindi Album "Julie". After that the remix version by Shaan for Album "Just Love". There are several other Movies that I love to hear. " Lagan", "Boys" and "Dil Cha Tha he" are my favorites.
The most interesting feature of Raaga site is the options they have to listen songs. U can select a Movie to listen all the songs included there. So it's like Non-stop song list. U need real player to listen to songs through Raaga. U can download and install a free version of Real player from this......Download Real Player

Muttiah Muralitharan - The living Legend of Cricket

Another 10-wicket haul for the Legendary Sri Lankan cricketer Muttiah Muralitharan. It will boost his total to 674 wickets in the test cricket arena, if im correct. And also he is the most 10 wicket holder in a match, do u know how many? 19 times in 110 matches. No one nearer to him, only Shane Warne, with 10 times in 142 matches??? Incomparable isn't it. Same thing with most 5 wickets in a match, Murali with 56 times in 106 matches. Richard Hadly and Shane Warne are there with 36 times only.
If you just go through the records list of www.cricinfo.com, u can see lots of records written to Murali. I don't know how many? But lot i guess. Its really happy to see he is still with his potency for da triumph. Hold on Warne, Murali is on ur tail man. Only 20 wickets behind u. He'll catch u soon. Be ware of Murali........ this word of warning is for u, Shane warne.

Yahoo Widgets

Would u like to see some cool stuff in ur pc desktop? Like previous versions of da Desktop calender etc? Here Yahoo Widgets is a right answer for u. When i searched through da web i accidently found this stuff :) Hope u'd like it too. Try and see. Here is my desktop now with awsome whether forcarsting and da wifi strength indicator.
There r lot of different functionalities available with widgets. When i checked web today, they have more than 3500 widegts available for free downlading. The other + point of widgets is they are not much memory consuming like desktop calendar or desktop wallpaper changer. Here are some of quetos regarding da Yahoo Widgets.
What Is the Yahoo! Widget Engine?
The Yahoo! Widget Engine (formerly known as Konfabulator) is a JavaScript runtime engine for Windows and Mac OS X that lets you run little files called Widgets that can do pretty much whatever you want them to. Widgets can be alarm clocks, calculators, can tell you your WiFi signal strength, will fetch the latest stock quotes for your preferred symbols, and even give your current local weather. What sets Yahoo! Widget Engine apart from other scripting applications is that it takes full advantage of today's advanced graphics. This allows Widgets to blend fluidly into your desktop without the constraints of traditional window borders. Toss in some sliding and fading, and these little guys are right at home in Windows XP and Mac OS X. The format for these Widgets is completely open and easy to learn so creating your own Widgets is an extremely easy task. For the "skinning" crowd, Yahoo! Widget Engine is a dream come true. You can easily change the look, feel, layout, even functionality of a Widget so that it matches your lifestyle, your desktop, or the pants or skirt you have on that day.

Da Vinchi Code Vs Borat

Now the time is 2.24 am early in the morning, what da hack im doing without going to bed? I just finished one of the most interesting film and worst film, i ever watched in my life time ( except Ice Age I, actually its one of the best OK). Da Vinchi code and Borat (better to say Boaring-Rat). The boaring-rat is my invension. I spent my whole day for da ultimate downloading of thease 2 films. Both of them truly exceptional in their own way. One is truly best, and other is truly worst (My opinions).

Da Vinchi Code
Dan Brown's controversial best-selling novel about a powerful secret that's been kept under wraps for thousands of years comes to the screen in this suspense thriller from director Ron Howard. The stately silence of Paris' Louvre museum is broken when one of the gallery's leading curators is found dead on the grounds, with strange symbols carved into his body and left around the spot where he died. Hoping to learn the significance of the symbols, police bring in Sophie Neveu (Audrey Tautou), a gifted cryptographer who is also the victim's granddaughter. Needing help, Sophie calls on Robert Langdon (Tom Hanks), a leading symbologist from the United States. As Sophie and Robert dig deeper into the case, they discover the victim's involvement in the Priory of Sion, a secret society whose members have been privy to forbidden knowledge dating back to the birth of Christianity. In their search, Sophie and Robert happen upon evidence that could lead to the final resting place of the Holy Grail, while members of the priory and an underground Catholic society known as Opus Dei give chase, determined to prevent them from sharing their greatest secrets with the world. Shot on location in France and the United Kingdom; the Louvre allowed the producers to film at the famous museum, but scenes taking place at Westminster Abbey had to filmed elsewhere when church officials declined permission.

Borat
Borat Sagdiyev (Cohen) is a Kazakhstani TV personality who travels to America to make a documentary record of his exploration of American culture. He is accompanied on this endeavor by his producer, Azamat (Ken Davitian). Once in New York City, Borat navigates the hurdles of settling into his hotel room then discovers Baywatch on late-night TV. He is immediately smitten by a certain blonde in a bathing suit and decides to take a road trip to California to meet her. This episodic journey takes him to Washington D.C., Atlanta, through the Deep South to Dallas, then finally out to Los Angeles. Along the way, he meets characters who are stranger than he is, adopts a pet bear, and gets into a nude wrestling match with his compatriot. That sequence alone is worth the price of admission since it's like a naked Groucho Marx (with an exaggeratedly long black cylinder obscuring his penis) doing battle with an unclothed Fat Bastard.

P.S: This pease of post is for da people who love to watch films and are unable to do so without paying big bucks for da DVD's and Cinema Tickets. I'll giv u a super hint to download thousands of newly released films and manymore free of charge from the Internet it self. Here is the way. U have to follow the following simple tasks for that.
1. Download one of the Torrent clients from the Internet - its free
http://www.bitcomet.com/ , http://www.utorrent.com/ , http://azureus.sourceforge.net/
Remember, u need only one of the above software for the downloadings. I recommend the first choise, bitcomet.
Read more about Torrent files
here
2. Now you are ready for the downloading of any pease of thing that u want to do so. Now u have to identify something called Torrent files. They are with .torrent extension. U can download them in several places. if u choose to install bitcomet, in the software it selt u can see list of sites to find out torrent files. Just open the following sites and download the necessary torrent file to ur PC.
http://www.torrentreactor.net/ , http://www.bitenova.nl/index.html

3. Go to the installed torrent client, say bitcomet. locate the downloaded .torrent file through the bitcomet. select a location to save ur downloading and start the downloading.
4. Be cool. It will take sometime to start the downloading and to finish the entire downloading process. This is another important thing. Check how many seeders are there before downloading the torrent file from above sites. B'se u need at least 1 seeder to make a successful downloading. Be sure to check dat too. Higher the number of seeders will greatly increase the downloading time and activity.
5. As an example, i started a downloading in the morning at abt 10 am, finished it at 3 am next morning. See how much time it will take. But its worth of spending such time to see all the cool newly uploaded films, games , softwares etc.
