Virtual Aftershock

A rather neglected hobby of mine. I am trying to resurrect the site. It is in dire need of a facelift, Brazilian butt augmentation and some liposuction. Check it out.

Farts.

Posted in Really Random on March 16, 2007 by iCoty

I read this great qoute from my school paper the other day…it may not be exact but it went something like this:

“Farts are like words from your anus…”

Isn’t that awesome and enlightening at the same time. If I can find the article i’ll post it.

Workout – 300 Style.

I found this article interesting. I wonder if I could one day achieve that Spartan look (Highly Unlikely). I think I lack in the awesomeness bodiness gene 😉 Anyway, thought I’d post a link here:

Burn … A nice Toast alternative

Posted in Mac OS X Software on March 6, 2007 by iCoty

Here’s a nice Toast alternative that I stumbled upon a few weeks back. Burn is an open source program, meaning, it’s free! If you want to save 80 bucks then this is a nice option for the burner in you. Here’s a screenshot of the pogram:

Star Wars – Steampunk’d?

Posted in Star Wars on March 3, 2007 by iCoty

The characters in the Star Wars universe are so indelible that changing even the slightest bit of these characters would in every way affect the mythos of this universe and could ultimately be considered heresy. One brave soul, however, has challenged this standard set by the mind of the formidable George Lucas.

Incredibly, I must say that I am indeed impressed by his vision. For a second, it made me forget about what has been done and made me envision what could have been, or even, what could still be if the author takes this project a step further and develops a mythos that is totally different based on one that has been universally lauded. Enough of the praise, I’ll let his art speak for itself.

Converting .Lit Files for use in Mac OS X

Posted in Mac OS X Software on March 1, 2007 by iCoty

.Lit is a proprietary file format developed by Microsoft and used to distribute eBooks. There is of course a Microsoft based reader from Microsoft but nothing made specifically for Mac OS X. But, Mac users are very handy people and have developed a way to convert such files so that they can be read on any computer. I recently stumbled upon a little app created by this fellow:

www.hansr.net

The app is simple in that it simply converts the .lit file to html so that you can view it in Mac OS X or any platform for that matter. What’s great about this app is that installation is simple comapred to other programs available that do the same thing. Basically, you just launch the app, select the .lit file, then convert. It’s fast and simple and can be got here:
