Ho hum 2

“A person with ubuntu is open and available to others, affirming of others, does not feel threatened that others are able and good, for he or she has a proper self-assurance that comes from knowing that he or she belongs in a greater whole and is diminished when others are humiliated or diminished, when others are tortured or oppressed.” – Archbishop Desmond Tutu

Upgraded to Ubuntu 9.10 this Sunday. Didn’t go very well. I thought I had them backed up to an external drive, but hadn’t – lost all emails to TripNaksha i.ds. And that because I chose to use the entire disk for the fresh install. Even after that I could’ve recovered the data but copied the backup from the external drive. Kicking myself still. And, internet seems slow on this OS.

I haven’t it mentioned right? I’m getting out of my partnership and am thinking what to do next. Reasons for this may best be avoided here. May take a huge financial hit because of this. Getting a job is not on the cards yet. Have been offered positions at a couple of startups I know in Hyderabad, but i’m not sure if i’ll join them. Thinking up another project with a friend. Low investment needed and will leave me time to keep working on TripNaksha as well.

Have been invited to quite a few weddings this month more than 5, all in the last 10 days of this month, may attend only a couple. Gearing up for the 10k run this Sunday. Ran in the rain for the first time today. Yet to buy a new mobile phone and a pair of shoes. Thinking i’ll decide the model, size, etc of the shoes by trying some out in stores here and then getting them from the U.S.

    I always do a neat install. Partition my drives and let the OS reside only on a part of it. Kinda gives me a feeling of clearing up my sins every six months :-)!

    Got to get a good pair of running shoes at this end too 🙂

    Wish you luck with the new startup 🙂

    Clean install is good, but a pain if you have to install and then configure a zillion s/w :). Deciding running shoes is getting complicated – some places I read running barefoot is better than buying expensive ones!
    And thanks 🙂
