    Microsoft, that paragon of computer security and safety, is currently investigating how parts of source code for the Windows 2000 and NT Operating Systems were posted on the Internet. Perhaps they have really accepted the Open Source model and this is the first step towards joining the movement.


    Shane Warne feels elated that he was hit for six in the last over of his comeback game, a shot which meant that his side lost. Warne ended up with match figures of 35.5-8-152-5, a strike-rate of 43 and an economy rate of 4.25 runs/over.

    I found these funny quotes by a few cricketers of the 70s-80s.

    • He wants to middle one or two balls in the centre of the bat - Bill Lawry
    • Wes Hall was delighted that his new son is a boy - Tony Cozier
    • The scoreboard keeps ticking over at a great rate of knots - Rodney Marsh
    • A tiger never changes its spots - Len Pascoe (This is definitely a classic)
    • Viv Richards is the drawcard, he’s the ace up the sleeve, and it’ll be like a bomb going off if he fires on the night - Martin Kent
    • But England’s lead was only 36 and just two rabbits remaining in the hutch as a crutch for Russell - Peter Bills
    • I have probably made more friends overseas from pigeons than from cricket - Bill Lawry
    • I never like to see anyone hurt playing this game, Rodney, but if it has to happen, then playing the reverse sweep seems as good a way as any - Richie Benaud


    VS Arunachalam writes in 'The Hindu' that it is not going to be an easy job for Pervez Musharraf to convince Pakistanis of the urgent need to transform Pakistan into a peaceful, prosperous democtratic Islamic state like Malaysia. Amit Baruah almost seems to tell Pervez Musharraf You've come a long way, baby!

    Iran confessed that it possesses a design for an advanced high-speed centrifuge to enrich uranium than it previously revealed to the International Atomic Energy Agency. George Bush immediately went on the offensive and said the US was considering reporting Iran to the UN Security Council for not disclosing its nuclear program in full. Perhaps Bush should also consider reporting Pakistan for its indiscretions, given that new centrifuge which Iran talks about is called a "Pak-2" because it represents Pakistan's second-generation design.
