Hooah!!!

Friday, April 04, 2008
another entry after ages..... suddenly realised that my plan of blogging has gone down the drain.... damn damn.... am lazy when it comes to the blog(btw am a lazy bum in general also.... :-P).... a master procrastinator .... :-).....

was chatting with a friend and was saying to her that I blog, but then I realised it should rather be, I used to blog.... haven't updated my blog since jan ..... been wanting to do so many things lately.... read, code, blog and all...... but finally started walking since last monday.... yeah, finally!!!!!

Started walking in the mornings with Bikram... usually wake up by 5:30 and generally walk from abt 6 AM to 7AM.... nice feeling to be able to get up early and go for a walk in the fresh air.... though can't say if the air is really that fresh, because there is some traffic and the roads are really bad in some areas, so lots of dust and stuff..... I was expecting to see more crowd(;-))... but alas my bad luck, usually see just some uncles and aunties walking.... he he he..... walking for about 10 days now have made me realise that my body is in really bad shape.. my cardiovascular shape is pretty bad.... which is really sad..... :-(.... I remember the days when I used to jog regularly with Mayank in Bangalore(that stint was for a month if I remember and that too before I sprained my ankle badly)..... was abt 2 yrs bac.... well I did join a gym in between(after I came to Pune)for a month..... but did not continue it afterwards..... well this time the target is to be able to jog non stop for 45-60 mins non stop after a couple of months.... wondering how much time it will take for me to achieve this target.... and hopefully this time around I stick on to the plan and form a life long habit of waking early and jogging(too much to be asking for :-)), but this time i am gonna do it...... Just Do It...... :-D..... even this time I seemed to have screwed my leg a bit , but not gonna stop... will walk, if not walk briskly and jog.....

Have finally installed Ubuntu7.10 on my laptop..... Ubuntu7.10 totally rocks.... amazingly easy to use as a desktop OS.... has a great and an easy to use look and feel.... has a superb set of package managers(synaptic(GUI), apt-get and aptitude) that just lets u install anything that u wud want to(provided it is open source and is available as a free install)..... though I have a few problems or rather issues that I can still live with but wud have been great had there been none(but then nothing is perfect right!!!)..... for instance I can't get the ctrl+F[1-6] key combo to get a text console, that is bad as I plan to do some kernel and device driver hacking also..... will now have to manage with the X terminal window..... hmmmmmm... otherwise Ubuntu absolutely rocks.... have setup all the multimedia stuff also, as in play mp3s, cds and dvds and avi files..... so that is pretty cool.. have installed ruby also... thats another thing I need to start exploring.. really liked ruby during what ever little I did for a project at office.... am hoping I can learn ruby in more detail and also learn rails, and maybe become a decent ruby on rails programmer..... also need to learn flex for work.... the current project is to make a new web based(flex) GUI for our product..... I am worried at times because suddenly am getting into GUI and all, and more into application programming......I don't say application programming is bad.....I am getting to learning new technologies and all..... hmmmmm....


Have read iWOZ by Steven Woznaik.... it is an brilliant book and very well written.... I feel every engineer should read the book.... it will totally change the way you would think.... clears so many misconceptions about apple...... the book is truly inspirational.......

hmmmmm..... nothing else to write abt....... hopefully I can be more regular now with the blog... :-P..... I seem to be always saying this......
