Sri Lanks Wins

ri Lanka cruised to a three-wicket victory against India in the opening match of the Indian Oil Cup at Dambulla today.

Replying to India's 205, Sri Lanka had lost early wickets, but the 37-run partnership between Sanath Jayasuriya and M F Maharoof proved crucial for the Lankan team.

The last wicket to fall was that of Upul Chandana (11) who was caught by Dhoni off Zaheer Khan's bowling.

Earlier, fast bowler Irfan Pathan had struck for the second time today, and bowled Dilhara Lokuhettige at 21, who had played some fine shots.

The two wickets before this ---that of Russell Arnold (22) and Tillekaratne Dilshan (17) were claimed by spinner Harbhajan Singh. India had got the breakthrough early on, with Pathan snaring Lankan opener Kumara Sangakkara lbw on 14.

Skipper Marvan Atapattu was joined by Mahela Jayawardene at the crease, but the hosts suffered another jolt, the result of a brilliant piece of fielding by Mohammad Kaif.

Atapattu (29) was sent back to the pavilion in the 13th over. Jaywardene (15) then took charge, but Zaheer Khan struck, bowling him.

Read the full story in the link given! Really a disappoiting performance by batting order!

India batting 1st

India have won the toss and elected to bat first against Sri Lanka in the opening match of Indian Oil Cup tri-series at Dambulla.
The match marks the beginning of the new cricket season for the Indians. Before the match, India were dealt a major blow with V V S Laxman being ruled out with a back spasm. Laxman's injury meant the team had two debutants in Suresh Raina and Y Venugopala Rao.

Missing stars
The Indians are already without the services of Sourav Ganguly and Sachin Tendulkar, the latter out of action till September after undergoing a surgery on his left elbow. Ganguly, though, is expected to return to the side for the third match of the series after his ban for slow over rate was reduced from six to four matches two days ago.

Sri Lanka too were hit with injury problems and were without new ball partners Chaminda Vaas and Nuwan Zoysa. All-rounder Dilhara Lokuhettige was handed his maiden international cap.

India: Rahul Dravid (captain), Virender Sehwag, Mahender Singh Dhoni, Yuvraj Singh, Mohammad Kaif, Suresh Raina, Y Venugopla Rao, Harbhajan Singh, Zaheer Khan, Ashish Nehra, Irfan Pathan

Sri Lanka: Marvan Atapattu (captain), Sanath Jayasuriya, Kumara Sangakkara, Mahela Jayawardene, Tillekaratne Dilshan, Russell Arnold, Upul Chandana, Muthiah Muralitharan, Dilhara Fernando, Fervez Mehroof, Dilhara Lokuhettige

IE7 Beta Breaks Instant Messaging Apps

Really a bad news for Microsft (again). Some Internet Explorer 7 testers who loaded the Beta 1 bits onto their systems have found a nasty surprise BetaNews has learned: their instant messaging software crashes.

Trillian, a popular multi-network IM client, Gaim and IM2 all spit out error messages when loaded alongside IE7, and the only fix is to uninstall Microsoft's new browser. Now let's see what Microsoft does about it!

Microsoft Genuine Validation cracked withing 24 hours

The genuine windows validation launched by Microsoft has been cracked by pro hackers withing 24 hours. Well, Microsoft will definately suffer a setback here. I can't tell u how to bypass the validation but check the forums. Maybe something about it will be posted soon!

Ganguly's Penalty Reduced

In a partial relief to Sourav Ganguly, ICC Disputes Resolution Commissioner Justice Albie Sachs on Thursday reduced his ban from six ODIs to four, raising the possibility of his participation in the tri-series in Sri Lanka. This decision means the Indian captain can now play in the tri-series as he has already sat out two matches and will only have to miss another couple of games. As Indian cricket selectors had chosen Ganguly as a provisional member of the team, he could potentially be back in action in India's third one-day international against Sri Lanka at Dambulla on Wednesday.

Sourav Ganguly will play under Rahul Dravid’s captaincy in the Lanka tri-series.

Piracy-check mandatory for Windows add-ons

From now on, customers looking to get the latest add-ons to Windows will have to verify that their copy of the operating system is legit.

Beginning Tuesday, the piracy check will be mandatory for all customers worldwide who want to download add-ons for Windows XP.

The only exception is for security-related patches. Regardless of whether a system passes the test, security updates will be available to all Windows users via either manual download or automatic update. The Microsoft Update and Windows Update utilities, which provide notifications of new patches, will require validation.

It's all part of Windows Genuine Advantage, a stepped-up effort by Microsoft to increase the number of Windows users that are actually paying Microsoft for its software. Currently, the company estimates that roughly a third of Windows copies worldwide are not legitimate.

Microsoft has been testing the Windows Genuine program since last September. At first, the program had neither benefits for those who passed inspection nor any penalty for those who failed or opted not to go through the piracy check. Gradually, though, Microsoft has been adding perks and moving to make the process mandatory.

FireFox v1.0.6

Mozilla Firefox project (formerly Firebird, which was formerly Phoenix) is a redesign of Mozilla's browser component, written using the XUL user interface language and designed to be cross-platform.

The changes that need the most testing coverage are in how the UI widgetry works.
Our preliminary testing doesn't turn up any issues, but patches similar to the ones we've recently taken in the 1.0.6 development builds have created some small bugs in out of the way places in the UI so please poke around and let us know if you find anything not working as it did in previous 1.0.x builds.

Internet Explorer 7 beta released

It's been almost four years since Microsoft refreshed its venerable Internet Explorer browser. But Internet Explorer 7 for XP Beta isn't a Mozilla Firefox killer -- far from it. Microsoft's limited availability for IE 7 should only open the door wider for competing browsers to steal even more market share in the months to come. Given the high expectations, I am unimpressed with the IE 7 for XP Beta.

Microsoft does improve printing capabilities within IE 7 for XP. No longer will you have to contend with truncated pages; in IE 7 for XP, the pages will be reduced to fit the printed page.

Only those running Windows XP SP2 will be able to run the latest version of IE. This is Microsoft's way of forcing non-Windows XP SP2 users to upgrade. Those still running Windows 2000, ME or even 98 SE will be forced to continue using IE 6 or commit to a Windows XP OS upgrade. This strategy could backfire, giving rivals Mozilla Firefox and Netscape an even bigger slice of the browser pie, especially among those wanting RSS feeds now.

unless you already have Windows XP SP2 installed, IE 7 for XP won't be available for you. I think that's a dumb approach, and see Microsoft's marketing fumble as a definite win for Mozilla Firefox and Netscape. I am not convinced that the security features touted in IE 7 will be enough to stave off the almost monthly security patches required to keep IE secure.

Shane Warne's statement

Shane Warne insisted here Tuesday that England had paid the price for getting caught up in the hype surrounding the Ashes after Australia's crushing 239-run first Test win at Lord's.

"I just dont think it is in the personality of everybody to make big statements such as 'so-and-so is over the top' and I think they suffered during the game by trying to live up to something that was not true to their character," the legendary leg-spinner said.

"You are positive with actions, not words. If they were told to do it then the tactic backfired."

In the build-up to the game, England pace bowler Matthew Hoggard, not renowned for his outspokeness, suggested to BBC Radio that Warne was "not the force he was".
He also called into question the stamina and form of the master slow bowler's fellow 35-year-old Glenn McGrath.

Warne, in his last attempt at the feat, just fell short of taking five wickets in a Test innings at Lord's and getting his name on the dressing room honours board.
"That doesn't really matter,"Warne insisted. "I must admit it was a real thrill to walk through the Long Room every time and see my portrait on the wall. I still feel I have left a mark."
