It has been a long long time since I updated my blog. Since the last update, a lot has happened. I'm making a list here so that I can refer to it when I get the time to write more.
- I attended Akademy 2012 in Tallinn, Estonia. Had an amazing time, met amazing people. Brought back a lot of memories and a tshirt :)
- I fixed Aditya's telescope (which I have indefinitely borrowed). Unfortunately, my fix involved removal of broken parts. Now the telescope functions but the Declination axis cannot be engaged at out. Highly unstable. However, I managed to spot Venus and Jupiter. :)
- I passed my GSoC final evaluation :) I am yet to merge my work though. Among the stuff that's keeping me busy.
- My Kindle broke. Again. :( But Amazon was kind enough to ship me a new one. Again. :) I hadn't even begun reading 'The Pragmatic Programmer' yet, which I purchased recently.
- I had to get my GSoC card reissued in June. Hadn't spent anything significant by then. But the procedure is taking quite a lot of time and I'm yet to get my card. On the positive side, the delay stopped me from buying stuff which I guess I never really needed.
- Spending approximately 5 hours everyday searching for interesting research projects. :( Found a couple of options, but still looking for more.
- I bought a book on procrastination. Never got the time to read it. Oh, the irony. :P
- I switched to Cyanogenmod 9 on my ye old LG Optimus One. No tethering = switch to Cyanogenmod 7. I bought this phone thanks to winning events at DTU. ETOOEMO about the phone.
- Had a great time at the Poets Of The Fall concert at Hard Rock Cafe, Delhi (24th August 2012). Always wanted to attend their concert. :)
