hard disk, hard times

Got a 2nd hard disk today. I'm not using the words "new hard disk" because it's not - it's a second hand 20GB Seagate U Type 5. I needed it badly - software needed for this semester is huge. Sadly, I can't seem to boot with the disk - I have to get to command prompt, and then do something, and only then can I get things working. weird.

notworking

My internet connection was down for about 14 hours.... the hub close to my house got spoilt in the rain or something like that.
We have a paper on Networking this semester, and this is the attribute about networking that I don't like - they tend to fail too often. In my opinion, computers and nature don't really get along too well. Make the hub waterproof, make the cables triple insulated, but there's not much you can do about 2 days of rainfall and the Crow that made a hole in the connector.

On a happy note, I'm now posting through wBloggar's new beta version v3.0b (I got access to it because I designed the logo in the forums :P ) and I have one word to describe it - wahoo! - it's really cool, I tell you.

Worked out a really spiffy

Worked out a really spiffy new site design for AdSystem. Also worked out PostgreSQL support. I tried Oracle too, but it seems a lot of work. We should also have 2Checkout and Authorize.net gateways implemented soon.

Too busy with work. I'm

Too busy with work. I'm hardly studying. Need to reorganize, reprioritize. Sigh.

In the last 7 days,

In the last 7 days, a group of 5 knife-weilding goons robbed 4 public buses in broad daylight, killing 2. At 8 'o clock in the morning.

Today, the Howrah Rajdhani Express got derailed and fell of a bridge, and 3 of the bogies fell into the water. Over 150 feared dead.

What's happening? It's almost as if human life doesn't matter anymore.

hello world!!

Really cool news - I've finally got 24hrs internet!!

It's a shared LAN connection - not very fast, but a little better than dialup. And I can stay online for as long as I want.

I had stopped blogging because of the super duper phone bills I got - I was paying so much money that I think I'm the reason the telephone company is making profits....Since that problem is solved, I can get back to writing something everyday.
