My sudden absence from the blog-scene has a very unpleasent reason. My home PC’s got some problem. If my Optical drive problem was not enough; there came another one to bug me. This time its the graphics solution thats causing the problem. There is no display on the monitor, though it boots properly. At first, I thought it was a problem with the monitor, but after checking it, I found out that its not the monitor but the video-out connector that is causing the problem.

This might be a minor problem, and may get repaired easily, but, I am in a mood to replace my motherboard and get more RAM and a new graphics card. I hope I will be able to get these things soon. Until then, am left with no other choice but to blog from office.

At office front, I have got a new project to work on. It has been a good experience working on it and looking forward to meet the deadline.

After days of facing the Heat-Wave, yesterday brought some relief in the form of thunder-showers. A super-cool weather followed and still remains to sooth our lives :D. A welcome respite from the burning-Sunny days it has been.

A day before, my 3 year-old CRT monitor started giving me jitters. The display would go blank (No Display Signal) any moment and then get back after a slap or two. Sometimes even these slaps didn’t work and I got so frustrated with it that I decided to replace it with my 11 year-old CRT monitor (I haven’t changed it as yet, though). It was happening so randomly that I could not complete my work and hence decided to leave it as is. Then yesterday, I was not able to switch my monitor and get my work done because of the power-cut which, in turn, was due the bad (or should I say, Good :)) weather.

..After anxiously waiting for a week or so, I finally got my hands on the RC of Windows 7 this sunday. As my DVD-Writer is at fault (yes..DVD-Writer too :(), I searched for ways to install Windows 7 from my USB drive. After hours of Research and work, I finally got a bootable USB drive with W7 setup ready to be installed. Then I took a backup of my music library and the moment I wanted to start the installation process; BLANK!!…uuurrrrgggghhhh…the monitor… What happened next has been described above.

And so, here I am waiting for my turn to get down-and-dirty with W7. I hope today would be THEE day of reckoning for me(Let’s pray to the rain-gods…Amen).

Phew..finally I have learnt how to stylize my posts at WordPress and so here I am..at wordpress too…After many edits, drafts, previews, HTML changes and hard-work of two days..am off to a start on WordPress too..

Hurray!!

After many failed attempts to change the theme on my blogger posts, I settled down with just another variant of what I was using before.

I ordered a 16GB pen drive yesterday. Lets see if I get or have to do with a 8GB one. Am planning to buy a HDD too..(Birthday Blessings kab kaam ayengi ?? 😉 )
