Words, need more words! But, precise ones!

Right now, I am busy writing my dissertation! Yes, dissertation, that same scary collection of elephantine chunks of words , covering a particular topic or area of research. Days and nights all are same now-a- days. Feels like as if I am a corporate executive who works following watch, not the day light!

So far, I have covered discussion on principles, technical considerations. Yet to produce the reports on decision analysis. Already my fingers are getting heavy, brains are boiling, gaseous stomach trying to revolt, eyes getting more red and me, as always getting mad at random things! Tragedy is, only a week after the viva on dissertaion, I got my degree final exams coming.

Who knows what’s waiting at the end of this blond tunnel.

Wish i could be like Doctor Who, travel in time, see the future and come back!

I posted a message on google group too.  Unfortunately, there was no positive response, one reason of which could be, android was mainly launched in Europe and Americas, not Bengali speaking countries. Anyways, this week again, after upgrading my G1 to CyanogenMod I gave another try on the net and solved the issue. Here is how:

& Android!

In its early days in market, I got myself a G1! The T-Mobile G1 based on Google’s Android operating system! Back then, my only intention was to explore the technology. I don’t know exactly what in particular attracted me to G1, but,  I was somewhat disgusted with the ongoing iPhone ™ craze!

Anyways, few months after getting my new G1, when I finally got time to play with my phone, I realised , “It’s the ultimate machine I was looking for!” It’s black, its strong, it’s with QWERTY , and on top of all, it’s skinnable, enhancable and all sorts thing you can think of! This became my new best friend! Continue reading “& Android!”
