What do I do??

Lot of people bug me asking about what I do online! My lecturers never stop asking the class ‘odhad bitre nimgenu kelsa irathe?’ ( What work do you have other than studying?)

So here goes the list…

1.Tech forums-

I have become a bit addicted to tech forum these days, trying to find out more about products and stuff ranging from iPhones to nuts and bolts.  I feel like living in a virtual world when people who you have never seen before answer your questions with all the interest in the world..

2.Private Tracker-

This was(maybe is) a short term addiction. I like their policy – ‘stop leeching start sharing’ .. Its a nice thing that there are a lot of private torrents which offer amazing share ratios and to keep you contented they initially gift you with 5 GB upload to keep you in good health.. Sad that Demonoid.com isn’t up, it isn’t working from about a week after I got an invite!! Thats really sad.. God alone knows how much I have pardhadufied to get an invite.

now I have no patience to type what other things I do..

Let me start ‘ctrl+c ctrl+v’ ing

A nice Objective for people trying for placements :

Objective: Highly personable, results-oriented programmer seeking opportunity to lead or contribute individually on projects or programs involving e-commerce, 3D multiplayer gaming, b2b, web programming or client/server networking with database or other persistence strategies while utilizing my broad background in problem-solving to do pretty much any menial job you’ll give me oh please please please hire me, I’m d-d-des-desp-waaaaaaah!”

 Found this hilarious stuff on a blog by  some fella working in Google..

My chaddi dost Prashanth has started a Company of his own, he has promised to buy some ad space on my blog if I promote it 😀

please visit http://www.naaboo.com .. For hits what else 😀 how will he convince Google to place ads on his site otherwise..

Oh how could I forget this?

I suddenly got all inspired to do a robot, searched online for tips, googled, asked in forum, thought ( don’t laugh) and finally ended up buying 2 motors, and some wire which I have dumped in a bin.. add to this, I bought a toy car.. no no not remote controlled, a simple battery operated toy car for 50 bucks to see how to fit the motor to the wheel..Also ripped a Shaver to find a motor with a asymmetrical load..no luck there..finally got bored of that too.. planning to brag in col tom about how I ripped it…

Prison Break : Season 3

One of my all time favorite shows Prison Break season 3 premiered on my b’day.. well it premiered in US ! So had to wait 2 more days to watch it.. Thanks to Sify Broadband -for people who can’t wait ..I have the worst connection available in India at 128 kbps..:(

Sulking apart, it was a brilliant season premiere, very captivating.. A worse jail, actually the jail in the first season was so homey that all my friends( #include me) wouldn’t actually mind to live there happily…

What more to write in here?? I have to beg people to read my blog :D.. Hey Google Spider, have me for lunch !

Nevertheless to prove myself to myself as a tech savvy, I WILL BE BACK>>>

As most of you might have guessed why I am writing this review, for noodleheads here it goes.. I bought one today and went through every detail of the player and found no review which was extensive, so thought of writing one..

 Transcend T 840

Take a break from those boring plasticy designs from Transcend.. This is a beauty.. I have a black one and it is cased in metal.. It attracts fingerprints so its clever to laminate it..

 It comes in 2 variants 2 GB and 4 GB. 2 GB costs 3400 and 4GB costs 4400.

It plays mp3,wma,wav and videos converted to .mtv format..

 The first thing you will notice about this player as soon as you switch it on is its beautiful looking GUI…Its excellent, even the iPods do not have GUI capability..

 You have a 3 way wheel for navigation which is a breeze, its a very good improvement over sluggish T 630.. You can switch from one song to another very quickly..

The Quality of the display needs special mention, its a 176 x 208 display which is very vibrant.. The video plays in the horizontal orientation thus preserving the widescreen aspect ratio.. I tested it with South Park episode, and Cartman’s voice was crystal clear 🙂

It has a built in Picture and text file veiwer (ebook) and a Radio..

 The T 820 has a jack for external mic and this one lacks it.. Not much use though.. The internal mic is good enough for everyday use..

The earphones reproduce excellent sound but the volume is limited to 100 dB to keep your ear in good shape.. This is one of the cons…

It has a world clock and an equalizer.. The settings are very extensive..

Overall an excellent music player and good video player too.. Transcend is definitely ascending…
