The 4th semester has been more of staying at home due to illness rather than going to college. And that also meant spending more time with experiments.
However, the time at college is not unaccounted either and college felt unbearable. I was unable to understand what was being taught in class and half-slept during the lectures and practicals. I felt extremely bad about myself and felt like I was wasting time. On top of that a girl buddy’s boyfriend decided that making my life hell was his top priority because he suffers from insecurity and keeps getting into fights for all sorts of trivial things. Ahh!
Coming to the tech front, many new things have happened. My BeagleBone Black setup is ready for use and I’ve even got the board housed in an enclosure.
Very soon, I’ll be getting to active ARM development and also see if I can make interesting electronic circuits.
On the web, things have been bittersweet. On one hand, my CloudFlare account now has the option of using Railgun to speed up delivery of uncacheable content (all thanks to my webhost). On the other hand, my AdSense account got finally approved after 6 months of wait, only to get click-bombed and disabled a week later (for reasons I’m unsure about). Now, I’m just trying my luck with other ad networks to see if anything else can be done.
My friend Manohar started his new personal blog very recently where he promises to write about his life and his thoughts. Do follow it at: http://manoharofficial.wordpress.com
Right now, Rongali Bihu holidays are on. I’m here at home trying to study whatever I can for the upcoming end semester exams from 6th of May so that I don’t perform poorly. 6th of May? Oh well… birthday ruined.
The 4th semester is finally wrapping up in this manner.
I will be writing again soon. Till then, take care.

Finally, our mid-semester exams got over and things got pretty much back to normal. Again assignments and labs resume, making the whole schedule hectic. Nothing is pretty interesting at this moment worth saying about, except that I made new friends with people I didn’t know earlier.
Most of my time is either spent in classes, or doing homework and assignments, or helping classmates out with their stuff. Trying to stay in sync with Techno FAQ and all the latest happenings, but I’m not being able to keep up like I used to.
Also, I trying to set up Ruby on Rails on my hosting account. Truth be told, its indeed a pain in the a** on shared hosting. I have set it up already on my tablet PC and trying to learn the language. Now I am just earnestly hoping that it works on this web host too.
So this is it for the while. I’ll be writing again soon.

So finally, I’m back. All this while I was away giving my Class 12 board exams. Then I sat for several JEE exams.
So, now that I’m finally back, stay tuned for the coming updates.

So it has been quite a time. So I must write about it. I have been looking for Android 2.2 on my HTC Tattoo. There isn’t any official build, so I naturally looked for custom builds. But most of them were half done with Camera and FM radio not working. So I went back to the official 1.6 build which had a major problem of lack of bluetooth support. So for now I am abandoning the Tattoo.
Worse yet, I am having no luck running Android on HTC HD2. The Haret.exe would get stuck in “jumping to kernel..” and would go no further. Poor day today. But I will keep trying.
Even worse is that I am having my exams at Brilliant Tutorials on Sunday. And Half Yearly Exams in School next month. Life is getting really tough. Lets see what happens.

By the way, it is 11 o’ clock night and have to go to sleep.
