appu ghar is closing down

India’s first amusement park, Appu Ghar is closing down. This is sad. I admit that many of the rides there were either broken or dated the last time I visited it, but it’s still a big part of my memories, just like every other Delhiite. The land will apparently be used to extend the Supreme Court and Metro Rail facilities. I don’t care for the court, but if the metro folks could just implement a loop) in their train tracks through the place, I would be very happy.

People who know me are aware how big a fan I am of the venerable application that is Photoshop/Imageready. After having shifted to Linux(post on that pending), I decided to have a look at GIMP today, based on a tip-off by a FLOSS buddy of mine. My findings are more or less concordant with the rest of the world (from what I found on google), but I'd like to add a few things to what everyone else is saying. I'm sure there are more people who're using the Fedora Core 1 distro with GNOME and are considering the GIMP as a serious replacement for Photoshop, so here's a few things that'll help them:

whoa!

The last time I was talking to Mahesh Shantaram, he told me he was planning a trip to Delhi. It seems that he's altered his plans a little. He's moving to Washington DC! Congratulations, Filterman.
