Another exploit from my last quarter. Great when had with paratha... not good with normal pita bread. I didn't give it enough time on the pressure cooker, so the water was retained wihch diluted the flavor. But, then again, I liked the diluted taste this time. Note to self: learn to apply the garnish in a more liberal manner.
The summer time in Evanston is quite amazing - and I can't wait until it comes back again. I visited this location prior to myself going back home; the location is surreal. When I visited the same location, winter had ravaged the site - the tree was no longer and the water was frozen. Sad. I have patience, it will return.
I decided I had enough with WindowsXP. I've never been accustomed to Windows to begin with - I've been using Linux for the past eleven something years and recently I had to use Windows because my laptop had it and I lacked the time to install and compile all new stuff on the system. To make a long story short; hardware conflicts and problems with the hardrive controller crashed the entire laptop. Now I have to spend the better half of tomorrow fixing the laptop. Ouch! Oh well, I backed up everything - so far so good.

Southern Minnesota used to be an extension to the vast prairie lands of Illinois and thereof. The prairie is being cleared for housing developments and to small parks which are dedicated to the 'memory' and not the 'preservation.' This image shows yet another casuality. The dark clouds are ominous. So much to say.

Believe it or not, this picture was taken in the dead of night during a Minnesotan Winter. Well, the wait was well worth it. One thing that I tried to minimize was the sensor's exposure to the moon; as you can see, I wasn't that successful. But the effect at the top of the moon pearing out is, well, good. That's no photoshop lens flare, it's a real lens flare. Hope you guys like it.
