With the world cup around the corner, the question on every body’s mind is who will win the cup. Will it be an Aussie Hattrick or will some other team take away the honours?

The World Cup trophy has been damaged while on display in India. A gold ring below the coins depicting previous winners of the tournament got detached from the wooden base of the trophy, which was made in England at an estimated cost of US$80,000.

A golden sun, wonderful beaches, yacht trips around the world are the things people have in mind when going to the Caribbean. But these things will be the last ones on their mind when the world cup begins, and the best 16 teams in the world contest for the biggest prize of cricket on earth.

Now with the injuriesand the dope test the world cup might have lost some of its sheen, but a lot still remains, there by making it one sporting event to be watched out for. For the Aussies who have had their aura of invincibility, they might want to turn the tables on the other teams to prove their might. With Ponting, Clark and Symonds fit and ready to fire all cylinders the Aussie juggernaut might prove a tough one to be stopped.

Windies playing in their own backyard will be quite align to the conditions. Also they have been on a steady roll since last year, so they have build a good momentum before entering into the tournament. With the home crowd’s support behind them they might prove to be a tough nut to crack.

The Lankan Lions were shaping up quite well until they came to India, where they were beaten badly in the ODI series. This might have bruised their chances for the trophy. But with rested Vaas and Murli back in their ranks, they might prove to be a handful.

Kiwis will enter the cup with their tales up after washing up the Aussies 3-0 in the ODIs. All their players are in good form and are peaking just at the right time. As fit an outfit as they are, it seems that they have maximized their chances this season for lifting the title, which has always been eluding them.

Being crowned the ODI’s number one team, The Proteas have received just the right medicine for the world cup. They are on the right track which they proved after demolishing both Indian and Pakistani team. But as always it has been, they have always chocked on the big stage. In every world cup which they have played, they looked unbeatable, but at the end moment they just lost the plot and luck completely deserted them. We have to keep our fingers crossed as this one might prove to be theirs.

Pakistan as we already know have been a mercurial outfit who have shown their mettle in big tournaments. They have always risen from the ashes like a phoenix whenever they looked to be in complete tatters. After losing out Akhtar and Asif to dope tests, they will be entering the tournament with the point to prove.

England, the country which gave birth to cricket, but never won the world cup itself. Losing three times in the finals, they have always surprised the cricketing pandits with their on field performance. Defeating the Aussies in the tri-series final being their only creditable win in this season, much cannot be expected from them.

Finally, India. This Indian team seems to have just the right balance. They have highly experienced players in the line-up and also the youth who will prove electric on the field. Also as this may be the last world cup for the likes Kumble, Sachin, Ganguly and Dravid they would like to sign off on a high note.

Lastly it can be said that strategies on pages will matter little when teams will be on field. For when in the field they would have to strike the correct balance between batting and bowling. It is mostly hard work and a bit of luck which is required to win the cup. But remember teams are always not lucky, so the team which survives the 50 plus days of test in the best way will be crowned champions on 28th April…

Today I came across an Operating System named O-Yes. According to the OS’s site it’s “the most efficient OS known to mankind. And it has been developed by a kid in India!! For many years it has been a closely guarded secret to protect our national interests.“. hmmm…. strange but might be interesting.

It continues to tell us about the developer of this secret and most efficient OS known to mankind: “Ramlal Bhagat, a Class XII. student from Haryana,India has developed a 32-bit operating system demonstrated to be far Superior to any of the desktop operating systems in the market today. The program has been named O-Yes. O-Yes provides operating system services on any Pentium-based personal computer (PC) and does not require MS-DOS as a base operating system“.

The Operating System is compared only to Windows 95 and OS/2 and not to newer Operating System which means it probably wasn’t updated for a long time. More form the site “O-Yes is 34% faster than Microsoft’s Windows 95 on similar hardware. It is 29% faster than IBM’s OS/2. O-Yes loads 54% quicker than Windows 95 or OS/2. O-Yes has a customizable, user-friendly graphical User Interface (GUI), in which every program can be accessed with a maximum of two button clicks. The operating system provides plug n play capability with numerous hardware devices. It has a superior memory management function. The operating system is compatible with Windows 95 & WindowsNT 4.0”

The site also claims that HCL, Ltd. (a company in India) as offered an unknown amount to Ramlal Bhagat for purchasing the rights to the software. But there are no other reports on the outcome of this offer.

Numerology teaches that the entire Universe, both thoughts or ideas and physical substance is a manifestation of positive and negative forces. The positive and negative forces make up the cosmic vibrations.

In Numerology, there are 9 elemental cosmic vibrations symbolized by the single digits 1 thru 9. There are 2 Master cosmic vibrations symbolized by the Master Numbers 11and 22. These Master Numbers are beyond the range of normal human experience. The experiences these numbers bring are only for the highly enlightened and the highly evolved. The numbers 11 and 22 never stop creating the future. They are the thresholds to change and progress. According to Numerology, everything within this range that is manifest in the Universe can be explained.

Numerology explains each numerical vibration. Each number represents a spectrum of related concepts ranging from positive and progressive to negative and destructive. You are free to choose which aspect of the vibration you will incorporate and use. You can build with the positive aspect and progress, or use the negative and find setbacks and even ultimate destruction.

Numerology can establish basic structure and can predict the potential for the future. What you do with your tools and your potential environment is ultimately up to you.

In Numerology, your Birth name reveals the things you want out of life, your daydreams and fantasies, your natural abilities, the basic tools you have acquired to build with now and in the future, your karma, and lessons you have already experienced but perhaps not mastered.

In Numerology, your Birth date reveals your destined path through life, a personalized timetable of experiences both challenging and rewarding…pitfalls and obstacles together with peaks and natural highs.

On July 22nd, 2005 Microsoft Corp. announced the official name of its next-generation Windows® client operating system, formerly code-named “Longhorn.”

That was the day “Windows Vista” was born.

The Internet has been on fire ever since with rumors and news about the next generation of Microsoft’s Operating System

         Image                  Image

Windows Vista introduces a breakthrough user experience and is designed to help you feel confident in your ability to view, find, and organize information and to control your computing experience.

The visual sophistication of Windows Vista helps streamline your computing experience by refining common window elements so you can better focus on the content on the screen rather than on how to access it. The desktop experience is more informative, intuitive, and helpful. And new tools bring better clarity to the information on your computer, so you can see what your files contain without opening them, find applications and files instantly, navigate efficiently among open windows, and use wizards and dialog boxes more confidently.
