My birthday presents

So, I turned 29 on 18th Feb 2012. Thought of presenting
myself with the toys I was longing for quite a while.
  • Nikon D3100 (body only).
  • Nikon AF-S NIKKOR 50mm f/1.8G.
  • Bajaj Oven Toaster Griller (3 in 1) 28 ltrs.

Owned Canon PowerShot SX210 IS for about two years.
That camera produces horrible outputs in low light.
No wide apertures. Horrible noise at ISO 200.
I was discouraged. Discouraged to the level that I had
totally abandoned...

Finally have my robot up and running. It will probably just a butler for now. Wifi for that old p1 board was a real hassle. Overcame that issue.

Spent a lot of time on the Insignia Infocast. Upgraded it to the Chumby 8 firmware. At first, I really did not like it, but like anything it grows on you. Never used Arch Linux, but can not wait to see what it can do for the unit. The now aka Chumby 8 will give that product from Cupertino, California a real challenge as well as Android....

Well, I'll be damned. Been a member for a few years now and didn't know I had the ability to blog here.

Only odd, because I blog a lot. Mostly video blogging and all about Linux. Topics are all over the place. Really I'm just trying to get the word out about Linux to people who may not otherwise try it.

Some times I'm just playing around with the family and I end up with something,
like this tutorial, featuring the green screen function in Openshot...
