Today, almost all in my class(May be all @ college) came to college thinking of strike. But surprisingly, nothing was there in front of the college gate(For all strikes, we usually see a lot of students gathered there blocking the way to college). So, everyone went to classes sadly… 🙁
There were rumors that the class will be suspended by noon. After the 2nd period, few seniors came with the notice and all was happy. I have nothing to do at home, so, I stayed at college and with the permission of HOD, continued with the Debian installation in the Internet and Multimedia lab of CSE department. Though Mahesh was present, he was busy with some other works. My classmate Mansoor KPA also helped me in the installations. By 4.30PM, we installed 15 systems with Debian and the one alloted for GNULab with gNewSense.No Comments | Read More...
At last, I am "MOBILE"
My quest for a cheap mobile handset with GPRS and computer connectivity came to an end today. Anil, a friend of mine studying for CSE 2nd year at MESCE itself, arranged me a LG G1600 handset with data cable for RS 2000. The set has Java support too. I recharged the SIM with GPRS recharge card but, I came to know that GPRS will be active only on Monday as it will take about 24 hours to activate and Sunday is an holiday for AirTel offices. Also, my balance is only RS 10 and for connecting GPRS a minimum balance of RS 15 is needed.
There was a little problem while I tried to connect the mobile to computer. I solved most of it by downloading a software for LG mobiles from net. Still, data from mobile cannot be transferred to computer. But I am satisfied with what I have got.

The second allotment
At last, the allotment results were published today morning, relieving the tensions of many students. As I hoped, I got a seat in MES Engineering Collage, Kuttippuram for Computer Science Engineering. My best friend Krishnaraj has also got a seat there for the same course. Some other students from our school has also got seats there. The collage is just 40mts journey by bus from my home and another plus point is that I know many of the students studying there.
Today, in the shop, Reliance broadband connection was fully configured. The service person said that we could start using it from tomorrow or day after tomorrow. The connection is so easy that plugging a wire to the LAN port, we can access net. The connection is similar to a prepaid mobile as we must recharge it using recharge cards. Also, a phone was provided with it, for free from which all calls to the Reliance broadband users in our area are free and there will be incoming facility until the broadband connection is in use.
Another crazy thing that happened today was that I got some server error from Google. Their popular services including Search, GMail, Orkut, Adsense, etc were not accessible today evening. Its the first time I came before such an error from Google.No Comments | Read More...
