The DEMON-OID is resting or dead??

From a past few days my favorite torrent tracker has been offline bue to CRIA threatened the company renting servers to Demoniod, as seen on
The CRIA might shut it down for torrent with copyright material, but demonoid doesnt host files. And also its a tracker to many open-source software. Its a very power-house tracker. I've not got any error on it till date.

Currently, I being a student not directly involved in big open-source projects like Debian, Ubuntu which I want to be in sooner or later[I'll be, I'm sure]. But anyways, I seed Debian and Ubuntu torrents until I get high ratios, during Ubuntu 7.04 attained 3.76. Now both have their own trackers but they sometime give-up due to high load. also tracked them. When primary tracker was out Demonoid would do the job. Thus, Demonoid being SHUT-DOWN, I've low upload speeds and sometimes tracker error, so no upload speed. My ratio is only 1.2.

Anyways, I'll continue to support community at least this way.

I was thinking is Demonoid dead gone forever leaving a space in FOSS community or it just a dragon charging back its fires within.. TIME WILL TELL....!!

Google goes for mobile..

Read this on BBC Website.

Google entering wireless world.

Notable topics are Google will not focus on hardware, it will be a software, based on Linux, and yes best of all it'll be OPEN SOURCE.

I'm waiting for it..

Cane furniture renewed..

Now as its Diwali time. Every household in the country gearing up for huge festival ahead.

Same thing at my home too. Today had encountered some old lamp shades and some good shaped baskets which were made out of cane. We'd bought it from Belgaum. They're quite looking old and Mom was telling me to throw it off in garbage.
But, I love cane furniture and wanted it. As cane is a type of wood and our regular furniture is too made out of wood. It takes up polish on it. Same way I did; got a decent natural wood colored polish and used paint brush and polished it on all lamp shades.

They're looking awesome and shining now..
You guys having cane furniture can try this stuff and see new like, bright, shining cane furniture come back to life.

My intro post..

Welcome world,

I'd decided to start blogging a month back but due to loaded schedule in college I'd not been paying attention to this thought.
On deciding to blog; I'd many options. Wordpress, Google i.e. Blogger and hosting on my own space which would require some GREENS. Finally made it here, BLOGGER. I love Google the way it provides services in world's best and efficient way. Its my dream to be at Google on day to be a part of what it is.

Keep visiting back....
