Windows Live Writer

It is getting pretty interesting. I am using my eeePC 1000HA to write this post, but this is not the interesting part. The interesting part of this post is that I did not use Blogspot's web interface or e-mail from my iPhone to Post this blog entry. I use Windows Live Write software that came with my eeePC 1000HA. I will post more thoughts later. I am going to hit the bed earlier. I am still not feeling good from my illness.

3 Day Part 2 - The Purpose Driven Life

37 days to go. I can see the light at end of this book and it is not an on coming train.. Good night.

What Drives Your Life?

Day 3 of "The Purpose Driven Life"

While I was in my MBA program, my classmates always joked about how tough our program was. We all had a single purpose in this program. Everyone’s purpose was to finish his or her degree. We always said, “I can see a light at end of the tunnel. It is not an on coming train.” :-)

I am driven by fear of failures in many situations. I like to plan things, weight my risks and evaluate my alternatives before executing. I know that God is guiding me. I should not fear the uncertainties in life. Just like I can see a light at end of tunnel. I am pretty sure it is not an on coming train. ;-) God has enough grace and mercy for all of us. So what drives you in your life?

Wishing Tree - American Dreams

I was walking around the Old Town Pasadena before dinner with couple of friends on Sunday afternoon. I came across this. This is a wish tag that is tied to a wishing tree. You can put your wish on a tag and tie on the tree. I just took some random tags and the trees.

Wish for a house

It read: I wish for a story house with a big back yard with two dogs. My daughter's room will be on the top level of the house. So She can not sneak out....

Obama for President

It read: I wish Obama become the President and....

Mother's Day 2008

I took some photos for church's mother's day event. I did not have a chance to work on the photos until today.

Dodgers Vs. Cubs

Just got back from a Dodgers baseball game. This is my first baseball games in couple of years. I had a great time. I went with couple of friends. I enjoyed couple of Dodger dogs and some nachos. The foods are overpriced, but it is part of the experience.

This is going to hurt..

Good friends


But the way Dodgers won the game 7 to 3.

Perfect Web Worker's Setup

I am sitting at Starbucks. I have my HP Mini with me with Sprint's Novatel Wireless U727 USB EVDO adapter with me. I am enjoy my time at Starbucks waiting for dinner while getting some work done. I am able check my e-mail with Outlook 2007, read my RSS feeds, fix couple of reports with Cognos and run some report over the web server. It is just perfect for a lazy Friday afternoon.

Now, I am able to accomplish most of my work using HP Mini with Sprint's EVDO. This setup actully raises an interesting question about processor power per watt verus productivity. Do you really need to get latest Intel Atom or Core 2 Duo processors in HP or Asus eeePC? Mini is not my primary computer. I have an Core 2 Duo desktop machine with dual wide screen monitors running in my office. For portable computers, I have a Dell Latitude D820 with T7400 processor and UWXGA screen, a Vostro 1500 laptop and a 2.2GHz SR MacBook Pro with 4GB of RAM and 320GB Hard Disk. I also have a 8GB iPhone, Samsung BlackJack II, AT&T 8525 and Blackberry Curve as my mobile devices.

Now I have HP Mini. The question is how much processoring power to you actually need to get things done. I use desktop or MacBook Pro or Latitude for all the heavy lifting, but those machines are also at least double the size and weight compared to my Mini. Do 30 seconds or 2 minutes actually make significant differences while you are mobile? This is a major shift in my thinking of mobile computing. Before Mini's arrival, I always want to have latest/fastest processor for my notebook/tablet PC/UMPC that I can get my hand on. Now with Mini, I can get things done with low power VIA C7-M processor. It probably took 2 to 3 minutes longer overall time for things to complete. Mini is 1/3 the cost of my MBP before all the upgrades ,weights about 50% less and 1/2 of footprint compare to my MPB. This is geting very interesting. I will post more thoughts later. Does 3 times the cost produce 3 times of productivity or efficiency for me? This is just become very intersting.
