I went home a few weeks back eage…



I went home a few weeks back eagerly awaiting to meet my friends,parents,sister and of course my dear PC. Everybody knows all the horrific deeds I have done to my PC. All possible experimentations. This time it was Ubuntu.
Windows had been easy, I guess. All possible windows tweaks had been done and my PC was in the best of its health. Well, It wasn’t to be for long. I had applied for CD of the latest version of the Linux OS, Ubuntu.Ubuntu is an african word meaning Humanity for others.
What do you know! They’ll ship you a copy of the Disc right to your home for
free!!!!!
You can expect the astonishment on my mom’s face when I received an international courier all the way from the Netherlands. Well, that lasted for a few days. Then it was upto me to get Ubuntu up and running.
I have no previous experience Dual booting a PC. What the hell, I dared it. I didn’t even bother to read the documentation or the manual. After all, I had Installed Windoze before, and Ubuntu’s installation was supposed to be one of the simplest.
But the fact remains that I messed it up and ended up rendering the entire hard disk unusable. All my songs,my father’s office work and my sister’s files were gone. And Ubuntu wasn’t even running. The only thing the PC showed after BIOS was
GRUB Loading Please wait…
Error 17
Thats it. Man, I was in for a jam. But, it seems were anticipating exactly such thing. There were no exchange of shouts, only a request to get it corrected by the time I was to leave. I promtly formatted the entire hard drive and re-installed Windows XP itself. Phew
Just in case you want to install Ubuntu and dual boot it with Windows read some of the nice links below. Otherwise you can also mail me or message me or whatever.
Hey, I’m in the University and I’ve not yet installed Ubuntu in my PC yet. So Don’t get overexcited and message me about how to install it.(I know you won’t)

My first ever Blog entry

Hi guys, My first blog entry,
First of all let me introduce myself. I’M Sanjeev S Chandran, 17, born to Satheesh K Chandran and Geetha G Nair, on, pardon me am not allowed to mention my birth date for security reasons. Whatever. Well, I have a sister by name Divya, studying in the 7th standard in Bharathi Vidya Bhavan, Erode, Tamil Nadu. I myself am a pass out from the same school.
I’m now in college for that matter, doing my first year in Computer Science,in the College of Guindy, Anna University. Am in a hostel for the second time in my life, the first one being a memory worth forgetting (sharing a room with a guy who drinks and smokes while in school is not something you’d want to remember I suppose). The hostel life in the Univ is totally different though. No drunkards here for a start.
That’s the first entry. Will keep you updated throughout the ???? (I don’t know, life I guess). Bye dudes. Keep me posted as well.
