Being Sunday things move slowly. But I have a golden day to finish all my personal tasks today but not in a mood to list them. So, thought writing a blog will make me list the stuff I must do for the day.Â
- Committed to Balaji that Iâ€™ll take him to ICICI Home Loan Mela & accompany him for his hunt for a new house.
- My old Compaq is in serious danger as it is attacked by Torjanâ€™s, Spywares & Malwares. Must buy a USB and take backups of important files and must format the system.
- Must make temporary arrangement to fix worms in Old Compaq system until I come back from Salem & Madurai.
- Got an invitation from my sister to go to Muthukadu for boating. If it is in the evening I might accept the invitation and will go with them.
Being a Sunday I donâ€™t want to push myself so hard. Let me finish these simple things and if time permits and if Iâ€™ve a company will go to a movie.
I remember I brought this notebook Compaq Presario B1900 for my eMBA classes and I brought it the previous day. So I remember the date very well. It was during 15/12/2006 evening 7 o clocks I got the delivery of the system. From then on this guy has come a long way with me and had been with my thought and good timesâ€¦
This notebook has several accomplishments behind him and he has a special place in the heart in days to comeâ€¦Â
- Started and finished my entire MBA classes with this system.
- During 25/01/2007 I met with big accident neat Vaniambadi while returning from Bangalore to Chennai. He was thrown out of the car but nothing happened and today Iâ€™m typing about him.
- Started actively blogging only after getting this notebook.
- Travelled places with me like Andamans, Ooty, Kodaikanal, Chidambaram, Trichy, Erode, Coimbatore & Madurai.
- He was awake for at least 16 â€“ 20 hours a day. So taking 16 hours a day he has been awake for 15,840 hours, 990 days & 33 months.
- Started tweeting in his timesâ€¦
- Didnâ€™t blogging & tweeting using data card and this guy while travelling to Chennai in a Busâ€¦
- Searched for Cogzidelâ€™s and freeze the name using this notebookâ€¦
- Booked domain names associated to Cogzidel with this notebookâ€¦
- Did all planning for Cogzidel using this notebook.
There are many more things I did using this guy and he has been with me for 33 long months. It is really hard to Bid Adieu to him. But Iâ€™m not planning to sell it or donate this system to anyone. It will surely rest in my personal museum and when Cogzidel becomes big this Notebook will be displayed with this description on him… Off late I started naming my car, camera et all. So Iâ€™ve not given a name till now so I think I can take this opportunity to give him a name and Iâ€™m naming him as Optimus Prime IIIâ€¦Â
- First one is the one in the movie Transformersâ€¦
- Second is Balajiâ€™s carâ€¦
Thank you OP IIIÂ for this long association with me and for being with my tough and good timesâ€¦ I think it is time for you to take restâ€¦
Welcome Apple Notebook MC240ZP/A to my new world. I donâ€™t think Iâ€™ve to give more induction about my needs as Iâ€™ve explained how your predecessor wasâ€¦ Having seen my requirement and the reputation you have for your brand I expect more from you and Iâ€™m more demanding for performanceâ€¦ Before Iâ€™d like to get you a name and from today onwards you will be called Mr.BAID named after my college name Dhanraj Baid Jain College. Being first time user of Mac today Iâ€™m planning to;Â
- Read the manual fully before using it.
- Start is slowly (2 â€“ 3 hours a day for next 5 days) till I get a groove.
Other than that there is noting more to add and I expect you will come along with me a long way like OP IIIâ€¦
FYI: This is the configuration of Mr.BAIDâ€¦
