My First Black Friday

For the ignorant ;), Black Friday is the day next to Thanksgiving day and marks the beginning of the shopping season. This day huge discounts are offered on many products.

Traditionally all these discounts had been available only in stores. But of late with the penetration of internet and e-shopping, this year had seen a good increase in discounts being offered online as well. There were few things I realized about Black Friday 2007.

At Last, Rahul Gets A New Mobile

It is a Nokia 6030. And frankly speaking I should have purchased it 2 months back, when had I lost my previous mobile because this model was released 2 years back. But I kept waiting for a newer model (Nokia 1650) to be released.

Nokia 1650 was supposed to release at the end of the second quarter. The third quarter also has come to an end but the model has not yet released. And moreover I would have to wait for feedback on Nokia 1650 from users after its release before purchasing it. All this would take at least another 1 month.

Website Gets Powweb Hosting

If you had visited my site this week, you might have observed that it was down for the first three days of the week and for the next one day, it was acting weird. So here is the reason.

All these days I had my site hosted on my home server. There were two big problems I constantly faced - 1. Power cut and 2. ISP (Internet Service Provider) downtime. So I had a Home UPS system setup. This solved the power cut problem but the ISP downtime problem was still there.

Long time dream to come true

Those who know me know that I am not someone who has many goals/dreams in my life. But among the very few I have, one of them is to contribute to the development of a good open source software. And today I seem to have come closer to accomplishing it.

The Longest Wait

Wonder what I am waiting for? Release of Mepis 7.0 and Nokia 1650. I've been waiting for more than 2 months and just have no clue when these two are expected to release :(. Both were supposed to release by end of September. May the Lord be merciful and release these two soon :D.

Hey You There ... I'm still ALIVEEEEEEEEEEEEEE

Oh yeah, I'm still alive and my site is still very much active. It is just that I am standing up to the title given to me "The busiest man on this earth" :D :D. As always, the past few months have been extremely hectic. In no particular order, here are a few things which I did during the past few months:

- Prepared my company's financial records.
- Visited my friend's wedding in Namakal (near Salem), Tamilnadu. She was my colleague during Bangalore training. The wedding went good except for that I almost missed the train on my return journey. But I somehow managed to catch it in time.

A Visit to Anantagiri Hills

I along with few of my IIIT classmates had planned a get together yesterday. Not wanting to go to one of the regular places, we decided to pay a visit to Anantigiri Hills (75 kms from Hyderabad). Not a bad choice but at a completely wrong time. We've heard this place is really good but that is only in the rainy and winter season. Only too bad, we went in summer :). All the trees had shed their leaves. Some of us tried trekking for a while after which we got so exhausted that we just lazed about for a couple of hours in the shade and then started back.
