My Ultimate Desktop

This is my new Ultimate desktop :D I edited some xfce and gtk themes, and here was the result. The colors even go with The Perfect Wallpaper. If you need that theme, or anything close to it (may be only a change in the colors), please contact me, otherwise I think when I have a little free time I'll arrange the files and provide a link to them.

Recipe - Carrot Cake

As you might already know, I like cooking, so I thought about posting some recipes here. May be someone could give a try.

I Personally tried ALL recipes posted here.

Carrot Cake Recipe:
1 cup oil
2 cups all purpose flour
2 cups sugar
1 pack backing powder cocks
4 big eggs or 5 small ones
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
2 teaspoons grounded cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon salt
3 cups grated carrots (mabshour)
1 cup of sugar (then ground it), or 3/4 cup of powder sugar
1 teaspoon of grounded cinnamon
put the oil and the eggs and mix them well then add the vanilla and mix, add the sugar and mix then add the flour and the baking powder slowly while mixing add the salt and the cinnamon while mixing very well. add then the carrot and mix really really well.
get a 26 cm baking pan, oil it, then put some flour in and shake it well so it sticks to the oil. pour ur mix and put in a preheated oven to 170 degrees, leave it for around 45 mins b4 opening to check it (if u open b4 thatyou'll spoil the cake).
it should take around 1 hour to get cooked. to check if it's done, insert a thin knife into the middle of your cake 2 or 3 times, when u get the knife out, if u see ANY traces the cake left on it, then it still needs to stay more in the oven.
put the cinnamon on the grounded sugar, add one table spoon of water and stirr really really well keep doing so and add more water if needed but add it in really really small amounts and stirr well after adding water everytime keep doing it till you get a THICK paste, much thicker than honey, thicker that the cake paste after it was done. spead it on the top of your cake after it has cooled down to room temp. LEAVE the dressing in the air for a while to harden, otherwise it might melt when closed or when subject to some little heat.
alternations, u might add more sugar, more cinammon or some nuts, peanuts are the best.
the one you ate today was with exactly no alternations from the recipe.
Bon Appetit.

Well, those 2 mails were sent to me by the GUC admission office. Ignoring that fact that their page doesn't work well with the 2nd most used web-browser, Firefox. Either this was the update in the e-mail, or there's some1 who doesn't know how to sum 1 bus + 1 bus :D

GasPaint v0.1

GasPaint stands for "Graphics Assignment Painting Program" probably we were drunk when we invented that. It's OpenGL based completely manually coded.

get the source here or checkout svn
svn co

  • The filling code is awfully slow due to reading the buffer pixel by pixel not as a whole. There's a working filling code in the examples folder. Feel free to integrate it if you have time.
  • There's a hack made to correct the coordinates of the mouse clicks, I don't have any idea why this bug exists.
  • Undo/Redo haven't been yet implemented, feel free to contribute.

Andrew's Tetris v0.1

Andrew's Tetris v0.1 is the first version of an OpenGL/freeglut based simple Tetris game implemented as an assignment for a Computer Graphics course.
Download the source along with the binary here, or checkout svn on

svn checkout andrews_tetris_read_only

Known Bugs:

  • There's something wrong with the rotation when you rotate beside the wall or another piece.
Feel free to post patches or other bugs.

and after all, Enjoy.
