Farticles

"A farticle with a mass 'm' is connected to a..."
"A WHAT? Sir?"
"Farticle oi! Farticle!"

Yes. Particles. So be the plight of the english medium students in Mahindaland( Actually, they DID name a village somewhere "Mahindapuram"). Where the economics teacher introduces himself with

"Hello boys, I am the Lal!"

Lal being his actual name. Anyway, instead of making my first November post yet another rant about school, I provide here some links that people might find useful for everyday use, and some links to various tutorials on software like Photoshop.

Humour/Satire

Useful programs

Just search Google for these.

VLC media player - Will play any media format under the sun, With no codecs required. Just install and run.

K-Lite Codec Pack - If you want to install codecs system-wide, this is great.

WinRAR - Will read most of the compressed file formats.
