Bugzilla on Windows

Posted by Bala on January 31, 2008

This week I tried installing Bugzilla on a windows machine, as I thought installing Bugzilla on a windows, that too behind a firewall is not an easy task. As I understand, in Debian etch, the steps to be followed is very simple, apt-get install bugzilla 🙂 but not that easy in Windows. Tried lot of ways but ended in vain because of firewall issues. Then switched the machine to public network and followed the instructions given in . Now Bugzilla is running successfully on a windows machine.

Bye!! Bye!! Gilly

Posted by Bala on January 30, 2008


Yet another blow for Australian Cricket, following the retirement of McGrath and Shane Warne last year. Gilchrist, my only favorite player in Australia Team getting retired from all forms of game. His spectacular catches and shots will be missed by every one. He can be rightly called as the Gentle man of the gentle man’s game.

Hope to see him soon dealing with ICL 🙂

Pongal 2008

Posted by Bala on January 16, 2008

As usual all friends came to native for pongal holidays, we had a very good get together that ended in a bitter way. Yes, while we are enjoying our moments, we planned to see Bheema but due to non-availability of seats, we forced to see Kaalai and that is the blunder mistake we made. The theatre was not crowded as we expected. Simbu shows all his heroism again in the picture. I cannot write any thing about the film here 😦

Then in the evening, me and my brother’s friend went to Bheema, this time we got the seat but in the third row. Bheema doesn’t have a very good story, but worth watching for Vikram’s acting & the way the stunts are filmed. Songs in the second half lengthens the film and made me to look for climax. At the end, everyone who acted in the film died (hero, heroine, villain, supporting characters & all). The film ends with the moral “கத்தி எடுத்தவனுக்கு கத்தியால் தான் சாவு.” nothing more.

New Year Trip

Posted by Bala on January 11, 2008

Thought of updating this for a long time, got a chance to update today. As planned, Me, my brother and my brother friends left to Palani on New Year morning before the sun rise. Our first destination, Thirumoorthymalai we reached around 11:30 morning. At 01:00 we had our bath. The water is so fresh and the entire place is like ice water flowing as river. After a nice bath, we started to Palani and reached by 05:00 PM. There I completed my venduthal of putting mottai 😉 Had a very good dharishanam in the temple and started back home at 09:00 PM. The whole way back we had very good discussion (like neeya nana) in the car with Hari.

Overall, I enjoyed the trip 🙂
