Life Update!

trinity is currently a Dell Inspiron 4100 and yeah, I'm kind of attached to that name, so all my work boxen (the ones I use) have always been and probably will be named trinity in a salute of sorts to Carrie Ann-Moss aka the real Trinity (Matrix). Heh. Clicky for a screenie, maybe I'll post some photos later.

Work in the new place has so far been a learning experience of sorts, which is good. I've picked up more Java related stuff in the last 2 weeks that I've done in the last 2 years (prolly because I never had to/tried). Overall coolness. Yay.

louiswu, I now have Software Suspend working flawlessly on the laptop. Took like about 30 mins to setup, the maximum time being moving my stuff around to create a large enough swap space. Tested once with only command-line and once with X and works like a beauty :) w000t!

Oh, I almost forgot. I now have Wireless at home. Grabbed a Linksys WRT45G (yeah I know, I can't put OpenWRT or similar stuff on it, but hey, it works ™) and a D-Link DWL-G630 PCMCIA card to go with it. Wireless is quite addictive and well, mom's quite happy I'm not drawing cables all over the place. Getting the card to work with Gentoo was a walk in the park with net-wireless/madwifi-driver and net-wireless/wpa_supplicant. Thanks to Joshua Jackson for the recommendation (of sorts) for the card ;) Feels nice to be walking around the place and remaining connected.

    So, finding a place these days are made easier by using Google Maps and/or Wikimapia. I found a couple of places I needed to go to in Bangalore…
