I was very impressed with Google picasa. I do not know how they manage to pack so many useful features into such small software. Today I decided to try their next product DESKTOP. The installation was not very event free as I expected. My laptop crashed during the installation (Probably because of bad network connectivity during installation). It failed to start with windows. So I had to manually add it to startup. However it installed without any problems in my Desktop. DeskTop is for desktop only? 🙂
One function I would have liked in this product is the capacity to index CDs. Right now I am using another software for this. Probably I may have to use the same for some more time. It will also be useful if the To Do list has a provision to enter time and a reminder function.
It has the ability to search contents on My Documents and web history on another computer. However my shared folder was not My documents. To make full use of this functionality I transferred my shared folder to My Documents which unfortunately was not an easy thing to do.
My website GulfDoctor.net get many visitors from here! A nice blog for PG entrance exams.
Battle of Wesnoth.
Today I installed the GNU freeware game Battle of Wesnoth. Though I adore Age of Empires and European war Cossack, I have never played a good turn based strategy game before. There is a well designed training module and it is easy to learn. The network support is also good. A nice game to play in the clinic when you are bored. Since it is turn based, you can go and see the patients in between without affecting the game.
