New bike: Bajaj XCD 135 DTS-Si

Bajaj XCD 135 DTS-Si

Yahoo!, we have a new bike, Bajaj XCD 135 DTS-Si, and right now I’m feeling on of the top of the world.

The bike with its stunning design, especially the classy rear twin LED tail lamp, a spec-sheet full of goodies:5 speed gear box, digital instrument cluster with analogue tachometer, front disc brake, alloy wheels, etc, makes you fall in love with it instantaneously. The version we bought is in Black-Blue colour (pictured above) with Electric Start and Disc Brakes. I really wanted the Red one, but unfortunately it wasn’t to be available for at least a couple of weeks

It has an excellent pick-up and power delivery and am hoping the fuel mileage come out at least above 65 kmpl. The gearing is a bit short especially for the first gear, where you have to up-shift instantly to second and then third, but this short gearing ratios means that the power delivery is seamless. I’m just lovin it.

A small tip for Bajaj, improve your sales personnel’s technical knowledge, and please produce more colours which the customer wants

I’m back – My first post in 545 days

Its now officially 545 days since my last blog post and I know I should be crucified for not blogging. But well now hopefully I’m back and should start blogging regularly.

I have given my Final Year B.Sc. (I.T.) exam (results awaited) and my PG course in Advance Software Technology only starts on 10-August-2009, so now I should have plenty of time to blog.

You might call them silly reasons, but for the better part of the last One & half year I didn’t have a proper internet connection, all I used was my phones GPRS via proxies and it was really slow (48 kbps) and proxies meant that I had no access to messengers. Plus I didn’t get time as I used to be busy with my college work.

A lot has changed over the last year and half and hopefully that’s what I would be blogging about over the next couple of days, haven’t thought of anything in particular but there are tons of things on which I could write.

Please do leave your valuable suggestions good or bad so that I can improve the blog.

Happy New Year ’08

Well folks I know its a bit late but still, wishing all of you a Very Happy & Prosperous New Year ’08. The reason for this delay is that I have been down with flu topped with an asthma attack for the last 1 week, but now I am much better. One may not say 100% fit but most of my nuts and bolts are up and running, with a few still squeaky

Well the only new year resolution I have made is to not procrastinate. Yes its just one to keep this time around and is a very big one frankly. I have a list of few other things to do, but they are just goals to be met and will only be met if I don’t procrastinate.

Under my to-do list is posting regularly on the blog (and not just disappear for almost half a year, sorry), getting the About Me page which I have been planning for such a long time. But my foremost priority is to complete my college’s IT fest’s Yantrika ’08 website.

I have a year back in review post coming up soon. Sorry can’t commit a date because I have a paper lined up on Monday, then a few more test and then the college fest, but I will surely try my level best to post it ASAP.

P.S.: If you decide to leave a comment and see some strange error messages, then don’t fret your precious comment wont go anywhere it gets saved properly. I am trying to fix it the error as soon as I can. Again I apologize for the inconvenience it may cause.

Spartan Tragedy

I bet you have seen the scene between King Leonidas and Persian diplomats in the movie 300. Here’s an excellent spoof on that scene. Sorry the quality isn’t that great, it was shot on a phone cam.

Personally I still haven’t been able to stop laughing, what about you?

Different Ages

As humans we have been through many ages viz. stone age, iron age, etc. Now we are in the computer age, but the similarities still exists and is perfectly illustrated by the following cartoon.
