So guys, I was away for a very long time because I did not get time to do most of my activities on the web. My holidays started at the beginning of this month, but preparations for exams at Brilliant Tutorials took up half of the month. Then the rest half of the month was used up by catching up with Brilliant syllabus. The exams results were not good. So the entire holidays appear to be wasted up to nothing. No travelling, no shopping, blah blah blah…..
Just a week is left for the school to start. Hopefully, something nice may come up. I have completed building the family website and also put a new and simple theme on my blog which looks great with my verbose typing.
At this moment I am eagerly trying to get my HTC Tattoo to get access to the web, without any appreciated results. Just hope that it will be fine in a couple of days. I have tried transparent proxies but they are hard to set up and I am at it.
I also wanted to set up a networking site for my school friends, but my partner in this venture is not responding to my requests and his phone isn’t working as well.
All in all, everything is in a mess. Just hope that everything will be fine soon.
Ok time to go. Will write again.

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!

Hello everyone! I am back after a long time to write something. So my post today will be quite long, you see.
Relatives visit our place!
In the middle of June, my relatives came to visit us. We had quite a nice time with them and went on an outing to nearby destinations. I went with them to Hajo and had fun visiting the same places again! However, my digital camera started malfunctioning and I could not take any photos on the return journey. Other than that it was great fun.
1st Practice Test comes up
After my relatives left, the practice tests came up and had to study a lot. I gave my exams very well and hope to make a good score. The results shall be given in August.
Yay! Summer Holidays!
Now summer holidays are going on. This summer I have lesser homework because I am in class 10 and the teachers want us to put our holidays to study. So be it! I am feeling happier.
Also, we went to our hometown on 13th July. I enjoyed a lot there. It was raining almost every day there and I was having fun getting wet. I also went to stay for a few days in my mom’s cousin’s place. She is pretty good cook and I sat on the chair licking my fingers after wonderful meals :P. My dad did not wish to stay disconnected with his workplace, so he bought a Photon+ wireless broadband service to stay connected. It wasn’t that fast in my hometown, because its a tourist location. But when I was back home, it seemed to be faster than my DSL line.
Now I am back home, writing this stuff and trying to complete all my homework. I have updated the main web site and I am trying to put a new blog theme. I plan to finish all my homework and make a little discussion forum for my school friends.
By the way, how are you all, readers? I wish to notify that our site URLs have changed. The Nandi Family site is now available at http://nandi.uni.cc/ and Sunit’s Life at http://sunit.nandi.uni.cc/
I think its enough for today. Have to go back to work.
Take care. Will write again soon!

I have finally updated the Nandi Family site and it seems to be complete. I just have to add a few pics, if necessary. Also, I have added a new album to the photo gallery about the Class 9 excursion. Hope you had a look at it.
Also, I am installing Internet Explorer 8, which I think is the latest one released by Microsoft.
Other than that, I downloaded a few games for my smartphone, especially the entire Need For Speed series and Dogz 2. I will be playing about in my free time.
Ok for now, seeya next time!

I am back after the exams are over. Holidays are going on. However, I still have to submit my Social Science Lab Manual and this is causing a great deal of trouble.
Other than that, it is a wonderful holiday. Day before yesterday, my friend in Singapore, Manuel’s Dad, came to IIT my dad’s workshop. This was pretty good because my lost contacts we restored … almost!
Yesterday, we went to visit Shillong. However, there was nothing good to see as the city was in a bad shape due to water scarcity. We wasted our energy in trips only.
Also, the Nandi Family site fixing is underway and I hope to complete it soon..
Will post again when it is done.

Feeling nice to write again. However nothing is nice that happened during the last two week. First, my exams results were not so good. Second, I could not go to my school excursion. Third, my health was not so good. Fourth, the Nandi Family site was losing rankings so we are migarting at this moment to another Content Management system.
However, I will try to enjoy my life as far as possible. Also, Alcheringa in IITG is also taking place. So, I will enjoy a lot.
See ya soon….

Finally after a long time, I have painfully put the Nandi Family website back into place, fully formatted in PHP which ensures that information can be updated anytime-anywhere and on the fly, thanks to SiteBuilder. This means that I do not have to make the whole site again and again to change little bits of info everytime.
Also, I have changed the look of my blog. Hope you like it!

Really sorry to say that my site had gone down for two weeks at a stretch because it was hacked and all my files were lost.
I have now changed my web hosting service provider to X10hosting.com and put my files back. And thanks to them, I am assured that my files will not be hacked again as easily.
Sorry for the inconvenience. 🙂
So I will continue to keep the website updated and at your disposal.
See you soon..! 🙂
Take care and be in good health.
