thanks san for the pointer to the video ipod. sigh, i am one generation behind already, not even got my audio podcasts going. and no, i ain't touching video podcasting any time in the near future. one can be scruffy and sit in a messy room and do an audio mp3, but can't with video.
i am really not sure if the video-on-the-go idea is all that great. personally, audio is soothing, but video demands full attention. i guess if you have a long commute by train it can come in handy, or if you car-pool.
also, belated thanks for the 'shining' trailer parody. it was very cute. i guess nicholson has been 'corrrrrected' and 'redrum' is not on the cards.
for all your entertainment, here's a frivolous use of google maps: to show where ufos have been sighted in the us lately. i used to think they were all seen mostly in redneck areas -- and were generally the result of too much moonshine -- but apparently not.
now that election season is soon going to be upon us in bihar, later kerala, i wish some indian blogger will start preparing useful district-wise information on past trends in voting district-wise.
incidentally, the congress got severely mauled in municipal elections in kerala recently. they only managed to win where their allies were strong. one, malappuram where their ally the muslim league is powerful. two, kottayam where their ally the kerala congress which is a christist front is strong. the congress in kerala is a christist party. i think hindus are finally recognizing that voting for the congress means voting for the vatican and baptists. the bjp had some gains this time from hindu alienation from the congress and the marxists.
kerala will elect the marxists back into power in a few months when there is a statewide election.
