WGA Strike is Over, Finally!!!

Wednesday, February 13th, 2008

Thank heavens that the writers strike is over and now they can get back drafting those super crazy story lines for TV shows. I guess it has been three months now since they stopped doing what they’re supposed to do. Suck it up, enjoy the new contract and get back to work ASAP. I desperately need my favorite TV shows back on air! It’s unfortunate that there would be some delays, major cuts in the episode list and some of the shows will have to be axed or dropped completely for this season.

Life is Life

It just has to be so unpredictable at the wrong time. The internet problem has turned from bad to worse. It was painfully slow for the last couple of days but now both the connections at my place are DOWN. Just goes to show the great backup Indian ISPs have in times of crisis. I am looking forward to a day where all the ISPs are down simultaneously and life comes to a standstill. Won’t that be some fun.

And guess what has come to my rescue? The dreaded Tata Indicom dialup. Perfect way to enjoy this weekend. 10 hours of it. It’s great to relive your glorious past every once in a while connecting to internets at speeds of 33.6 kbps.

In other news, I finally managed to get the old number working on my new cellphone.

Last couple of months left before I say good bye to VJTI. The old Acer laptop needs the fourth power adapter. This time it blew up and melted on desk due to excessive use. It really hurts to spend soo much on old hardware. Looking forward to buy an ASUS Eee PC in the coming month. The thought of a third laptop for personal use is frightening but I really need something like an Eee PC in my backpack.

Enough of blogging for this session. Can’t just go on doing this over a dialup connection. There are so many other things to do right now. And now I hope, that the net connections are back again soon, so I can download LOST S04E01.
