Moi New Collection

I have collected many things. The first one I remember started when I was in my third standard, it was Match Box covers then. I have collected Coins, Stamps, Currencies, Badges, Tatoos, Medals and what not, even Bus Tickets.

Now its time for another one. Being part of Smiley, I get to travel a lot and stay in different hotels across Kerala. As a reminder of the place, I have started taking mementos home from those hotels.

Internet On the Move with BSNL 3G and Option GTM 378

Some time back, I read on @TheAnand’s blog about a HSPDA WANN Card. Once during a hangout I got to use the same on his laptop. Man! 3G is fast.

Following his steps, I ordered a similar card on ebay and finally got it working this week. Here is what you need to get and what you need to do to stay connected on the move using BSNL 3G.

Unlike the USB broadband connections, this card is placed inside the laptop, so the whole thing is an integrated unit, nothing to carry around and absolutely nothing protruding. It looks as if the laptop is born with internet ๐Ÿ˜‰

Notes From Canon Photography Workshop at Cochin

Last week, on 30th, I attended the Canon Digital Photography Workshop at Abad Plaza, Cochin. It was my first serious step into Photography and so I was really looking forward to it.

I didn’t want to be late, so I set out really early in the morning (had a plan to see a guy before the event which was at 10:30 am, thanks to the slow ordinary bus, I missed the meeting, but was really early for the workshop). From what I had known from my friends, I had decided to get off at Kacherippady bus stop; I didn’t bother to ask anyone where it was, by the time I asked someone, I had missed the stop.

SSH is Not as Easy as I Thought

Ok, so as decided, I was SSH-ing or Simply Sitting @ Home for the past one week. But practically, SSH involves a lot of work especially for a freelancer.

First priority is Time. You never know where all the time went. I would wake up and read and write a couple of emails, reply to some facebook and twitter calls, and lo! its afternoon already.
