Getting my first bike

2006010106630201.jpgBooked my first bike Bajaj Discover DTS-i 125 CC – Black with Grey stripes. I have taken my LLR last week and hope to get the Permanent license in say 2 weeks from now. I must have got the license really long back.. Shit… I have wasted 4 years of my B.E without even getting a bike license !! Some things happen only with time ๐Ÿ˜€ Link to official site of the bike It costed some 50k odd .. Big money for a bike…Parents bought it for me ๐Ÿ˜€ Why not pulsar ? Too heavy for me ๐Ÿ™ cant handle it and 150 cc is too much for city driving I feel . So some great biking on new bike ahead.

Me getting a black with grey one.

UPDATE : Got the bike and busy driving it

Time to go dual – core .. stop getting the AMD 3000’s

Initially rumored, and then thought only to extend to a few processors, it now seems that AMD is ending several Athlon64 lines, no longer offering them for sale and halting manufacture. It affects a total of 16 individual CPUs, all of the 3000+, 3200+ Socket 939 varieties. They are all single core chips, and will be no longer available come the end of this month. While AMD claims this comes due to the market’s demands (รข??customer requestรข?ย), given the prices of the FX and X2 cpus, it’s hoped that AMD’s decision will allow them to offer their other CPUs at a better price point. Though all CPUs eventually cannot be ordered, typically a CPU stays available for many years, and is not cut as short as this. It makes you wonder what is up over at AMD.

Yipee ! Native wifi support for Linux

Software developers who build products for the Linux platform will no longer have to worry about embedding drivers to offer wireless support. Devicescape, which makes Wi-Fi (Wireless Fidelity) embedded devices software, last month released Advanced Datapath Driver for the Linux 2.6 kernel. Previously available only under proprietary terms, the driver will now be covered under the General Public License (GPL).

With the new driver, open-source developers now have the option to offer native Wi-Fi support within the Linux kernel. This means that notebook and desktop PC owners running Linux operating systems will be able to choose from a wider range of Wi-Fi adapter cards that work on their machines.
