AT LAST!!!!!
Yeah, the d00d is back in the house. I had not blogged since the time I had reached here. Thats over a month…
Why? No man, I was not busy. But its just that the gora log do only one thing in office, and that is “work”. They do have their share of fun at the work place but still they believe in working hard for 8.5 hrs and then start thinking abt the fun part.
They have perfectly divided their lives in two parts: professional and personal and dont let any of them intermingle. They keep their personal matters restricted to their homes and also keeps stringent limits on the hrs they spend in the office (And they also efficiently utilize each and every minute of that spent in the office).
Well, enuff of the background info. The point is, I couldn’t blog from the office and didn’t have any source to access net at hotel. But now I got my laptop (Yipppeee)….
Thanks to all those who had given me inputs to finalize my shopping list, I have done a sizable amount of my buying. Here are the things I have bought so far:
1. Laptop.
Specs: Compaq R4000 series. 15.4″ WUXGA with bright view screen, AMD Athlon 64 bit 2.0 GHz processor,
1 GB RAM, 128 MB ATi Radeon Xpress 200 m Gfx card, DVD writer, etc…

2. iPod

3. Digicam: Canon Powershot S1 IS (Just love the 10x zoom)

4. An extra 120 gig hdd

5. 1 GB CF card

and some small tit bits….

The major thing I like abt the states so far is the driving part…everyone drives in such a civilized manner….
But facing a bit of problem in the food deptt as its difficult to find good veg food.

Neways, thats it for now. Pics next time….
