I never read the Da Vinci Code but am sure gonna watch the movie coming out this year with Tom Hanks , Jean Reno and Audrey Tautou.
Meanwhile there is a game on Google's personalized portal called the Da Vinci Quest you need to add it by clicking on add Content.
Its a puzzle game , kind of neat and is sure to provide good advertising for the forthcoming film .

Here is a site that allows you to download uTube videos its called KeepVid.com. I dont know if thats legal though :S but whats good is the site is clean from any popups and other crap.
All you need to do is enter the link to your movie stream in a textbox and click download , then a download link will be displayed on the site , click on it to start downloading.
You would require an flv player to view your downloaded movies.

I dont know whether i should laugh about this or praise the initiative around the national candle light Mauritius program brought to us by Association Civique Midlands which has been circulating a lot through emails lately.
The slogan says :
Turn out your lights for just two hours
Do something special...
Read a book with your child by candle light
Enjoy a quite dinner with a special person.
This night can mean many things for many people.
A time to save energy, to think about peace,
To think about people in distant lands who share your planet.
Pulling the plugs opens the window to anew world
Awakens us to human freedom and diversity,
It's a process of discovery about our potential
However you spend them, for just tow hours, join us.
Turning off the lights, and help us spread a gentle wave of candle light around Mauritius
I dont know if turning out your buld lights will increase your potential but it will surely sore up the sales of candles.
I think the main idea is to take it slow and spend more time communicating with others ... at least i hope thats the idea.
Anyways its good to know that the Mauritian youth are active and using the web as means of communicating their ideas , thats definitively worth a big clap ....CLAP CLAP CLAP!!
The event is to take place the 2nd of June 2006 from 8-10pm . All those of you willing to show your solidarity are kindly welcomed to turn off your lights and go to sleep ;) .

Damn this little piece of junk which i absolutely dont understand the craze is really finding various uses . Its just an mp3 player as any other sure its got a big storage capacity but so do many other mp3 players .The new release from steve-job-land is the video ipod but i guess that apple goodies will still take a while before landing on our shores.
Anyways there are some cool free books which you can actually read from your ipod or just read in a browser online. The one that caught my eye recently is Monster Nation by David Wellington (which comes as a triology), who also posted latest book Thirteen Bullets on the net too.
The book is about a couple having special powers and zombies infesting ... (well read the book am not gonna read it for ya will i ;) ).
You can also order the book from Amazon . Help David before he turns into a zombie.

First thing well done people of Chagos , they were able to go to Chagos after many decades to see their island which is now occupied by the Americans and turned into a military base.
Found a couple of nice blogs
1. Amina : just started blogging so hope you will all encourage her.
2. humeriah : an islamic blog
3 Dan : nice one really cool each entry is marked with funny images and the fact of the day is replaced with Chuck Norris fact of the day
e.g Chuck Norris fact of the day: In ancient China there is a legend that one day a child will be born from a dragon, grow to be a man, and vanquish evil from the land. That man is not Chuck Norris, because Chuck Norris killed that man.
I have also been looking at many cars and gosh every week i see some really cool beauties and one thing i learnt so far is that the longer you wait the better the car you get and the more the chances that their price will go down.
One cool utube movie : Here comes Dr Tran really worth watching.
The frech gov finally decided to get rid of the CPE (Contrat Premiere Embauche) that made college kids who had been protesting since a couple of weeks through-out the french territories go back to college (START LEARNING KIDS!!!!.. they never miss an opportunity to protest!) and complete their exams. In Reunion island it made them dance to Sean Paul music on campus. Please note that we in Mauritius got rid of our CPE a while back :P.
