Yep....that *Evil* delight is called "Sizzling Brownie", the one in the center of the table at Cafe Coffee Day at Camac Street, Kolkata, on which both @makghosh aka Arindam Ghosh and @iMBA aka Mitesh Ashar have their eyes on :) and me i.e. @arjunghosh aka Arjun Ghosh watching from the center & @artagnon aka Ram was looking from side.
We went to this place after we had our Kolkata Hookah Tweetup at Aqua Java on Wood St. Now Aqua Java has a Hookah joint upstairs. Believe me or not but this was my first experience with Hookah...atleast any lounge variety-type Hookah. It seemed a bit lame after all that I have already tried! :D But was fun.
We actually had to cut short our TweetUp there, as the electricity at the place suddenly went off, and the room was slowly seeming to turn into & look like a over smoky den of evil with very very low visibility!

Well to tell the truth, he has also not been able to *actually* bypass it - what he though can is receive and make free calls to US from desktop at least for now :)
Have to wait for full service to start here in India.
So from the horses mouth itself, on what he did to work around the restriction of US-only limitation for Google Voice.
- Toughest part: Get an Google Voice Invite first :) from here
- Find a US-based proxy server (or use ultrasurf 9.5 and IE, other browsers wont work) [Mostly not to leave a trail]
- Get a free US incoming number from Gizmo5.com or Sipgate.com using the proxy
- Open Google Voice invitation using proxy and follow instructions
So it took my friend 4 hours to do the above, but he claims that it should take anybody just under an hour as the steps are out there now :)
So give it a try, and do tell if it worked for you.

It so Kick Ass!!!...
"Terminator Salvation" seems its going to good...at the official trailer seems to indicate. Love the fact that Christian Bale is playing a lead role. He in Batman was awesome and hope to enjoy him in this new version of Terminator too.
In fact "Terminator" is one longest running (25 years!) and most successful franchise in movie history created by James Cameron
Who can ever forget dialogue "Hasta la vista, baby!" or "I'll be back." as said by Arnold Schwarzenegger
Or how those cool Si-Fi concepts and ultra cool Robots, inspired generations to come, to go into science & robotics. Well it did inspire me :)
Also (and this may be mundane and trivial to some) my first *adult* content movie was Terminator 2. Remember the scene between Sara Connor & John Connor's Dad. Yeah that's the one. I still remember the day when me and my cousins sat down to see it just for it :)
Also my introduction to world of hacking & phishing was through this movie. remember the scene in T2 when John Connor is hacking into some eases ATM account with a portable computer. That was way cool at that time around 90's
