Well ppl what to say about this game i cant think of right now. This is my first MMORPG [massively multiplayer online role playing game]. I played it for the first time when i was touring my country for my college Interviews. I am thankful to SIN who introduced me to this game. I play many characters my first being Neena which i lost i dont know how. Various others i play are harsh[EA] Mee2[EP] and McMeoW [WF]. I learned the game the hard way. Made lot of unneccesarry expenses and got messed up many times and keep doing it. I found this game very interesting more over the guilds are lot helpful. I have been into many guilds with my main player that is harsh but none i found satisfactory till i got into Entourage. Its awesome and i mean it. I wont be leaving this guild for anything. This is the best i have had of the perfect world. A recommendation though… if u play many characters place them in different guilds so u have large no of friends… at least i like many friends… I have been through tough times too in the game. The worst when my stats were messed up as an EA [harsh] then one of the friends @ANGEL@ helped me out of the blue. I now in a position that i can help new ones and i don’t leave a single chance to help others. One advice tho is that spend carefully and look for the materials lol…..

I wud be sticking to this game for long… cant tell how long but will stay around to help…

I am thankful to all in game friends and my GM’s and all others who helped me.

I’ll be there for u…. just pm me.

Kalyway 10.5.2 penultimate Install ;)

First of all what’s with the post title man!

Well i cant say that its my best and successful install of mac os leopard on my XPS 1210 and i might mess up again (Nth + 1 time ;)) so i thought to name it as such.

My config

Dell xps 1210

CPU 1.83

FSB 533 RAM 1024 Dual channel

All works except for the camera and card reader.


I got Dual Cores [work around]

I got sound.__________________________________________

My procedure is ….

Boot from 10.5.2 DVD [kalyway which can be found on tbp]

– vanilla kernel ( kernel + ACPI FIX)

– nvidia driver NVInject Laptop [my nvcap for external is

– efi mbr

After installation, we need to boot “safely” with cpus=1 and fsb=166 ( for the choopy audio, ONLY on 667Mhz MB ),

you can add it to your


what we have:

-QE working

– wifi/ethernet working

– bluetooth working

– sleep working

– Powermanagement.

what we DON’T have:

– Dual core.

– audio from speakers.

when booted, you download the following list of files :

– AppleHDAPatcher

– sigmatel9221.txt  [find both in rar here]

– Powermanagement.bundle (from this attachment on this message, posted by others before on this topic)

– AppleACPIPlatform.kext ( comes from another topic on this forum, it’s iAktos ACPI kext, on the attachement)

when download finished. firstly use AppleHDAPatcher with the sigmatel9221.txt explained before on the topic.

reboot, you will have sound from speakers ^^.

delete your /System/Library/Extensions.mkext.

repair permissions of your disk, and reboot.

you will have Powermanagement with the icon battery status ^^.


what we have:

-QE working

– wifi/ethernet working

– sound (only on jack output)

– bluetooth working

– sleep working

– audio from speakers/jack.

what we DON’T have:

– Dual core.

So, finally, the dual core ^^. I think that all that have tried on the m1210 have seen that, when you boot without cpus=1, 2 things

can happen randomly, you can get a “unknown sigfpe code 1” at boot (in this case your computer reboots) or you can get your system to boot, but unusable because of extreme lag, IN THAT CASE : PUT YOUR COMPUTER TO SLEEP after booting, then wake

him up, and the system will then work smoothly WITH BOTH CORES ACTIVE ^^

now the glitch is u need to sleep it everytime but that can be cumersome as the muse keeps freezing every second so i got u the keyboard shortcuts for sleep option+command+eject[F12]

Generic host win32 error revisited

Shortly after doing a clean install, and while installing various programs,
I’m getting a “Generic Host Process for Win32 Services Error”. I close the
notification window and everything appears okay. However I then noticed that
my audio devices are no longer accessible. The device manager shows no
problems, but the options in the control panel are greyed out. The problem
is fixed, at least temporarily by reinstalling the audio drivers. Someone I
know is also experiencing the same problem. Both are XP SP2 systems.

I took a look around the net and I get the impression that it’s an error
related to one of the MS updates, and that there’s a fix for it, either a
revised update or a patch.

I’m trying to figure out what the cause
was. I have done 3 clean installs now and the error repeats itself in all 3
of them. Since I’ve have never seen this error in any previous installs, and
I’ve done quite a few, it has to have a cause because of something that is
now different. The fact that I know someone else experiencing the same thing
is interesting.

I have been fighting this for awhile. But I fixed it. The problem isn’t
with the Audio Drivers, but with a Corrupt installation of the Software
Firewall you are running. In my case McAfee Personal Firewall 8.0. I went
back to version 7.1.113.

Try this: Uninstall the Software Firewall and make sure the Windows XP on after you reboot. Then go using Explore, delete all files in
your \Temp Folders. Close Explore and run Disk Cleanup.

Once you run Disk Cleanup, go into Tools for the operating system’s Hard
Drive and schedule a complete chkdsk at boot.

Then I used TuneUp Utilities 2006’s Registry Cleaner, running it until I
had zero Errors. 30-Day Trial version is available.

When done, reboot the computer.

Problem: When Svchost.exe closes, it stops all Services it controls.
Therefore, it stops Windows Audio Service.

1. The error appears on other people’s computers too.
2. After the error message the audio properties are greyed out.
3. System sounds continue to be heard as usual.
4. The error appears even after a clean install and just after installing
network drivers.
5. Some forums suggest a buffer overun attack via port 80 (which is usually
6. I’m really familiar with the software on my computer.
7. I’ve done countless windows installs in the past without seeing this

I did a search on the MS site for any patches dealing with buffer overuns
and found bulletin MS06-040 and it’s associated patch KB921883.

I then applied the patch under the following two conditions:

1. During a clean install of windows, just before installing drivers
(including network). The error did not appear and everything continues to
work well.

2. After getting the error message on another machine; disconnected from the
net (by pulling the cable), reset audio services via services.msc, applied
the patch and then reconnected to the net. Have not seen the error message

Hope this also helps others with this problem.

From Smilies to Emoticons ;-)

The National Telegraphic Review and Operators Guide in April 1857 documented the use of the number 73 in Morse code to express “love and kisses” (later reduced to the more formal “best regards”). Dodge’s Manual in 1908 documented the reintroduction of “love and kisses” as the number 88. Gajadhar and Green comment that both Morse code abbreviations are more succinct than modern abbreviations such as LOL.[1][2] Typographical emoticons were published in 1881 by the U.S. satirical magazine Puck. In 1912 Ambrose Bierce proposed “an improvement in punctuation — the snigger point, or note of cachinnation: it is written thus \___/! and presents a smiling mouth. It is to be appended, with the full stop, [or exclamation mark as Bierce’s later example used] to every jocular or ironical sentence”.[3] Emoticons had already come into use in sci-fi fandom in the 1940s,[4] although there seems to have been a lapse in cultural continuity between the communities. An early instance of using text characters to represent a sideways smiling (and frowning) face occurred in an ad for the MGM movie Lili in the New York Herald Tribune, March 10, 1953, page 20, cols. 4-6. (See “Creation of 🙂 and :-(” section below.) In 1963, the “smiley face”, a yellow button with two black dots representing eyes and an upturned thick curve representing a mouth, was created by freelance artist Harvey Ball. It was realized on order of a large insurance company as part of a campaign to bolster the morale of its employees and soon became a big hit. This smiley presumably inspired many later emoticons; the most basic graphic emoticon that depicts this is in fact a small, yellow, smiley face. In a New York Times interview in April 1969, Alden Whitman asked writer Vladimir Nabokov: “How do you rank yourself among writers (living) and of the immediate past?” Nabokov answered: “I often think there should exist a special typographical sign for a smile — some sort of concave mark, a supine round bracket, which I would now like to trace in reply to your question.” [5] Several Internet websites —such as BT’s Connected Earth[6]— assert that Kevin Mackenzie proposed -) as a joke-marker in April 1979, on a message board called MsgGroup. The idea was to indicate tongue-in-cheek — the hyphen represented a tongue, not a nose. Others used 🙂 for tongue-in-cheek, with the colon representing teeth. Also used was -:) to indicate sticking out your tongue, in derision or anger. Although similar to a sideways smiling face, the intended interpretation was different and this does not appear to have inspired the later smileys. Creation of 🙂 and 🙁 The creator of the original ASCII emoticons 🙂 and :(, with a specific suggestion that they be used to express emotion, was Scott Fahlman;[7] the text of his original proposal, posted to the Carnegie Mellon University computer science general board on 19 September 1982 (11:44), was considered lost for a long time. It was however recovered twenty years later by Jeff Baird, from old backup tapes.[8] 19-Sep-82 11:44 Scott E Fahlman 🙂 From: Scott E Fahlman I propose that the following character sequence for joke markers: 🙂 Read it sideways. Actually, it is probably more economical to mark things that are NOT jokes – given current trends.For this, use 🙁 Graphical replacement In Web forums and instant messengers, text emoticons are often automatically replaced with small corresponding images, which came to be called emoticons as well. Similarly, in some versions of Microsoft Word, the Auto Correct feature replaces basic smileys such as 🙂 and 🙁 with a single smiley-like character. Originally, these image emoticons were fairly simple and replaced only the most straightforward and common character sequences, but over time they became so complex that the more specialized emoticons are often input using a menu or popup windows, sometimes listing hundreds of items. Some of these graphical emoticons do not actually represent faces or emotions; for example, an “emoticon” showing a guitar might be used to represent music. Further, some instant messaging software is designed to play a sound upon receiving certain emoticons. An August 2004 issue of the Risks Digest (comp.risks on USENET) pointed out a problem with such features which are not under the sender’s control: It’s hard to know in advance what character-strings will be parsed into what kind of unintended image. A colleague was discussing his 401(k) plan with his boss, who happens to be female, via instant messaging. He discovered, to his horror, that the boss’s instant-messaging client was rendering the “(k)” as a big pair of red smoochy lips.[9] Emoticons are also commonly used in online computer games. The most common type of emoticon is the “smiley “ which is simply a cartoon-looking face showing a smile. This has evolved into a variety of different facial expressions including frowns, angry grimaces, blushing, crying, looks of surprise and thousands more. Emoticons have also expanded beyond simple cartoon facial expressions to a variety of still or moving images, including words, character actions, and images.[10]

She was born on March 11 in the village of Saini, about 40 miles from New Delhi, India. She was born with two heads from a condition called polycephaly. At first she was revered as a reincarnation of the God Ganesh, half person and half elephant. Locals came to the tiny village of Saini to touch her feet, dance around her and offer her family money.

She was born naturally,and her family did not know anything was wrong until after she came out. Millions of rural women in India do not receive prenatal care. The family has not yet given the girl a name.

Her parents have so far ignored pleas by the local hospital to perform a CT scan. Until the scan is done there’s no way to know whether her condition is life-threatening or how she can be treated.

Happy Holi

Holi (Hindi: होली), or Phagwa (Bhojpuri), also called the Festival of Colours, is a popular Hindu spring festival observed in India and Nepal. In West Bengal, it is known as Dolyatra (Doljatra) or Boshonto Utsav (“spring festival”).

On the first day bonfires are lit at night to signify burning the demoness Holika, Hiranyakashipu‘s sister.

On the second day, known as Dhulhendi, people spend the day throwing colored powder and water at each other. The spring season, during which the weather changes, is believed to cause viral fever and cold. Thus, the playful throwing of the colored powders has a medicinal significance: the colors are traditionally made of Neem, Kumkum, Haldi, Bilva, and other medicinal herbs prescribed by Āyurvedic doctors. A special drink called thandai is prepared, sometimes containing bhang (Cannabis sativa).

The Holi bonfire

The burning of fuel wood to create the bonfire for Holika dahan presents another serious environmental problem. Each bonfire uses around 100 kg of wood, and considering that approximately 30,000 bonfires are lit in the state of Gujarat just for one season, this leads to a staggering amount of wood.

Groups such as Sadvichar Parivar are now advocating one symbolic community fire, rather than several smaller bonfires across the city as a way to reduce wood consumption. Others are also suggesting that these fires be lit using waste material rather than wood.

In Vaishnava Theology, Hiranyakashipu is the king of demons, and he had been granted a boon by Brahma, which made it almost impossible for him to be killed. The boon was due to his long penance, after which he had demanded that he not be killed “during day or night; inside the home or outside, not on earth or on sky; neither by a man nor an animal; neither by astra nor by shastra“. Consequently, he grew arrogant, and attacked the Heavens and the Earth. He demanded that people stop worshipping gods and start praying to him.

Despite this, Hiranyakashipu’s own son, Prahlad, was a devotee of Lord Vishnu. In spite of several threats from Hiranyakashipu, Prahlad continued offering prayers to Lord Vishnu. He was poisoned but the poison turned to nectar in his mouth. He was ordered to be trampled by elephants yet remained unharmed. He was put in a room with hungry, poisonous snakes and survived. All of Hiranyakashipu’s attempts to kill his son failed. Finally, he ordered young Prahlad to sit on a pyre on the lap of his sister, Holika, who could not die by fire by virtue of a shawl which would prevent fire affecting the person wearing it. Prahlad readily accepted his father’s orders, and prayed to Vishnu to keep him safe. When the fire started, everyone watched in amazement as the shawl flew from Holika, who then was burnt to death, while Prahlad survived unharmed, after the shawl moved to cover him. The burning of Holika is celebrated as Holi.

Later Lord Vishnu came in the form of a Narasimha (who is half-man and half-lion) and killed Hiranyakashipu at dusk (which was neither day nor night), on the steps of the porch of his house (which was neither inside the house nor outside) by restraining him on his lap (which is neither in the sky nor on the earth) and mauling him with his claws (which are neither astra nor shastra).

In Vrindavan and Mathura, where Lord Krishna grew up, the festival is celebrated for 16 days (until Rangpanchmi in commemoration of the divine love of Radha for Krishna). Lord Krishna is believed to have popularized the festival by playing pranks on the gopis here. Krishna is believed to have complained to his mother about the contrast between his dark colour and his consort Radha’s fair colour. Krishna’s mother decided to apply colour to Radha’s face. The celebrations officially usher in spring, the celebrated season of love.

There is another story about the origin of holi. Kamadeva is a god of love. Kama’s body was destroyed when he shot his weapon at Shiva in order to disrupt his penance and help Parvati to marry Shiva. Shiva then opened his third eye, the gaze of which was so powerful that Kama’s body was reduced to ashes. For the sake of Kama’s wife Rati (passion), Shiva restored him, but only as a mental image, representing the true emotional and mental state of love rather than physical lust. The Holi bonfire is believed to be celebrated in commemoration of this event.

Holi is a festival of radiance (Tej) in the universe. During this festival, different waves of radiance traverse the universe, thereby creating various colours that nourish and complement the function of respective elements in the atmosphere.
