Done with Exams!

Today, I woke up at 8:00. With exams behind my back and still in a mood to have some fun, I decided to have a quick bounty run in NFS Most Wanted before going for breakfast. The police pursuit turned out to be the best one so far. I was in pursuit for 17 minutes and reached heat level 5. I had completed all the milestones and was all ready to evade Sergeant Cross' corvettes but got busted! shit!

Decided to check orkut before going for breakfast. Didn't get any scraps! shit! Went to google and tried searching for ibm pSeries. A link pointed to FC5's installation problems in IBM pSeries. Read what was written and decided to give it a shot. Had my breakfast and in no time, I was in the lab, trying what was written on the site. After struggling with the machine for about 3 hours, I managed to get Fedora Core 5 working. linux working --> excellent! 3 hours wasted --> shit!

Wasted some more time in the lab, went to the mess and had my lunch. Came to the room and did what I did best... waste time browsing the net. Feeling guilty, I opened my openGL code to complete it (or rather make a decent beginning!) but soon lost interest. Assignment postponed by a day more! shit!

Crappy Point#1
After a lot of struggle, I finally managed to build beryl from source code. While the binaries were being built, I managed to download many beryl themes(minimalist are my favourite ;) ) The buttonless ones are really cool!


Crappy Point#2
For the (n+1)th time, I changed my wallpaper and this time it is Kaley Couco. The wallpaper blends very well with my current beryl theme!


Crappy Point#3
Curd was very good in mess today. I managed to get my hands on 3 cups of curd and ate my favourite curd rice with our typical mess waala "alu coora" :X


Crappy Point#4
If anyone reading this blog has ever built Lapack and Blas libraries from source, please drop me a mail or better still call me. My number is (+91)9989314387 !!


Ok! Today's Shit factor ---> 4/16 = 0.25

nice blog....esp the crap points...gor the bullets of the blog

interesting to know that u busted your ass on FC5 for 3 hours to get it working,

not to forget that u installed those wobbly widow rpms for beryl in fc5.

try out fc6 its even a step better than fc5 and with beryl being installed in less than 10 mins, it smoked my effort of getting it to work on Edgy Eft and Fiesty Fawn for over a month


bottom line....i never like Red Hats there fore never tried much xept for fc5 n fc6 for beryls sake...me into Edgy and Fiesty will give suze a try when 10.2 is a stable version
