Indian Coffee and Russian Ramblings…

I do not know how or why, but the temperature has risen to 0+ degrees Celsius and looks to stay there for a few days. So I took advantage of this treat in the weather and worked on getting the car unburied from 2 to 3 feet of snow…

I was not the only one out doing this. It seemed like everyone has taken advantage of the warm weather and were all out trying like me, to get their cars out from the drifts…

So I spent hours helping people get unstuck from there parking places. I have a tough sharp rake like tool and it digs through icy packed snow like a hot knife through butter. I used that and we got 5 cars out of their cubby holes that they had become buried in. It was fun but I got soaked and I hope that I do not pay for that type of fun… ๐Ÿ™

I got our Volga uncovered and she started no problem. Then she crawled out from her cubby hole and went right back in to sleep some more. I have some work to on her, but it will have to wait another day…

Now I sit at the computer and sip on a cup of delicious coffee from India. I have posting a little less and I thought that I would give my excuse. (Other than a super long holiday) Sveta bought me an Android phone for my Western Christmas, New Year, Russian Christmas and Birthday gift…

Being born near Christmas has always been a bummer in life. Everyone sends you a gift and says, here is your Christmas and Birthday gift. But it is only one gift. I use to wonder what it would be like to have a Birthday in the Summer time and get gifts for you Birthday only. I still wonder…

But I will not complain in this case because Sveta buys good gifts that cover it all. Since, I have wanted an Android Phone and because I had decided to start working on the Android Operating System. I like to hack OS’s and make them better. The Android OS is ideal for this being Open Source…

I received an LG phone model GW620. It is a hackers delight and I have literally wore myself out playing with it. Android makes it easy for you and all you have to do is install their software, Android SDK and have fun… ๐Ÿ™‚

It is the best cell phone I have ever had. It puts Windows OS based phones to shame. Sveta has a Sony Ericsson Xperia mini X10. That her son gave her. So she is not left out in the dark. But she wanted someone to terrorise the phone and make it do everything that she wants. That becomes my job… ๐Ÿ˜‰

Sveta is an IBM and MINIX expert and I cover the Windows/Linux end of life. Since Android is Linux kernel based. It is right up my ally…

I also had to upgrade our data transfer system at home and I install a WiFi router. Now I can really play. It allows me to even move the laptop into other rooms if need be…

So Sveta and I had a wonderful Christmas Holiday…
