So, my birthday comes this time in 2012. And finally I turn 18. How time flies, sigh.
Nothing much in store today though. Plan to have a get together with family and friends tomorrow.
HTC HD2 crashed after experience because of the slow Class 2 card. I’ll need a faster SD card soon.
So, currently installed CyanogenMod 9. Plan to use it in failsafe for a few days.
Will write again soon.

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.

So it has been ages since I last wrote here. I was away because I was giving my Class X board exams. But since I am back I am going to tell you what has been happening today.
So the dreaded boards finally came. However, I prepared for them beforehand by giving up all my luxuries, including my computer and concentrated on my exams. I have done all my exams very well. But, I am afraid that there was a printing mistake in the science paper where I have a chance to lose 3 marks. But my parents say I could get full there as it was their mistake not mine.
Now I plan to study for IIT-JEE and am going to take coaching for the very same. I have joined Brilliant Tutorials.
My relatives visit us
Just a few days after my exams were over, my relatives came to visit us. They were my Uncle, Aunt, Grandmother and Cousin (all maternal). We visited Hajo with them. It was my 3rd visit to Poa Mecca and one more time can make me equivalent to have gone to Mecca. (Hehe!)
We also went to several spots and even went shopping with them. However, the shopping session seemed absolutely boring.
After spending a good time, they left us on Saturday.
Got two new PDA phones
The lifetime of the motorola phones got over so soon that we were forced to buy two new PDA phones. One is HTC Tattoo and the other is HTC HD2. I am not going to explain their features here because you can get to read about them in Wikipedia. They are pretty expensive ones but the features they are loaded with far outweighs their costs. Dad has even switched his BSNL mobile connection from 2G (GSM) to 3G (WCDMA/HSPA) to get high-speed data connection on the go. And even 3G is very costly in India. It will take time for the prices to come down. Yet we are happy.
The Tattoo however has issues with Wi-Fi connections. So it is a must that we use 3G on it. I am currently looking for ways to solve this problem.
Site building in progress
Currently I am building the main site. I am still looking for a lightweight CMS to run it because I don’t require all the features a standard CMS has. I want a solution that allows me to add/edit pages and change themes. Nothing much. I settled with Zimplit, but because of its bugs, I am about to try Get Simple. Hopefully, it will be back in place soon. If you can then please suggest me one that I can use.
I am also thinking of moving our photo gallery to Photobucket. The lack of proper service in PhotoApe is hurting me a lot. Since, I am still under 18 and have no pocket money, I am looking for free services to suit my needs. Please suggest me some good photo hosts with free and unlimited storage.
Anyway, I have work to do now. Will be posting soon after I host my site. Cya!
