Essays, Essays and more essays....  

Posted by Anirudh Acharya in

I got the official GRE results today. So now the task of writing essays awaits me. I gotta prepare Statement of Purpose and get Letters of Recommendation from the faculty of my Department.

SoP is a real time sucker! I hope I'm able to finish it by the time I get my TOEFL results so that I can apply as soon as I get the results.

Mac4Lin ver.0.3 Released!  

Posted by Anirudh Acharya in

Mac4Lin version 0.3 Released!

24th October 2007

Mac4Lin is back! A new version, more changes, better looks and an overall more polished product. Please read changelog for information of changes in this version. It gives me immense pleasure to inform all that downloads have crossed 110 GB till date!

Mac4Lin now comes with a unified documentation in PDF format. Please go through this for illustrated installation instructions. Also some entities like GTK theme/Pidgin etc. now include two versions. Hence individual README files are only included if there is any need to convey release specific important information to the user which the generic documentation does not include. Read the README file for more details, in such cases.

With the release of GNOME 2.20, there have been issues reported with the Icon theme. Work is going on to make the theme compatible with GNOME 2.20 (found in OpenSUSE 10.3/Ubuntu 7.10 - Gusty etc.). There will be a separate release of Icon theme for GNOME 2.20. Users of this version can replace the original ver.0.3 Icon theme with the new one, which will be released soon after this release. GNOME version can be checked by clicking System Menu > About GNOME. Other components of this package are reported to work with GNOME 2.20. The installation of GTK Metacity theme and Cursors is almost same execpt that the Theme Manager in GNOME 2.20 has a new look.

Thanks to Victor Hugo Casals for the Safari skin, M.Lettner for the panel backgrounds, Calande for the font guide, Mitko for nm-applet icons, Vish for Grub and Buu700 for Usplash screens. I also thank all those who tested the pack and everyone who are directly or indirectly involved in this project.

Apply it, flaunt it, enjoy it!

I am free!!!!  

Posted by Anirudh Acharya in

Yes, at last.... I'm free from ETS' clutches. TOEFL out and down! I can now relax for a couple of dayz. I must say it was one of the worst environment in which I gave the test. Sound proof rooms were missing and Damn! everyone had the same set of questions in the speaking section. Its hard to concentrate in that situation. You do not hear everything yet thats enough to distract you. Anyways its over am I am happy about it :)

GRE is history!  

Posted by Anirudh Acharya in , ,

I've left GRE behind. Its over and I feel so relaxed. Scored 750 and 490. Next is TOEFL on 17th October. But I don't get the feel to prepare for it. Blame GRE for that! Everything seems so calm. Yeah, exactly like the lull before the storm. A bigger task lies ahead for me. The task of applying to various universites.

Countdown to GRE

The countdown begins......

I'm tired of preparation and frankly, sick of the verbal section! Feeling frustrated. Just want this to get over as soon as possible!
