অনেক প্রতীক্ষার পর গত ৭ তারিখে অনেক কিউবি ওয়াইম্যাক্স এর সংযোগ পেলাম। গুলশানে গিয়েছিলাম ইউএসবি মডেম এর জন্য। কিন্তু দেখা গেল সেটা ম্যাক সাপোর্টেড না। ঝামেলায় পড়ে ভাবলাম বড় ডিভাইসটিই নেব। কিন্তু সেটি গুলশানে কোন দোকানে বড় ডিভাইসটি নাই। ইফতারীর আগে প্রায় ২ঘন্টায় গুলশান ১ থেকে বসুন্ধরায় আসলাম অন্তিকের এক পরিচিত ব্যক্তির কাছে। তিনি বড় ডিভাইসটি ম্যানেজ করে দিলেন, যদিও বাসায় এসে পরে দেখলাম সেটি পুরাতন। ফোন করলে জানাল সেটি পুরাতন নয় কিন্তু তবুও পরে পরিবর্তন করে দেবে। যাহোক, বাসায় এসে অন্তিক ডিভাইসটি সেটাপ করে দিল। একটা চাঞ্চল্য ছিল মনে। অন্তিককে বিদায় দিয়েই বসে গেলাম কম্পিউটারে। আহা আহা! পেজ কি দ্রুত আসছে। স্পিডটেস্ট করে দেখলাম ০.৫ মেগাবিট পাওয়া যাচ্ছে। আর নিজেই ডাউনলোড করে দেখলাম ৫৫-৬০ পাচ্ছি। Continue reading
Recently I have experienced my life’s longest air journey! During this journey, I have used a few numbers of airlines! I am trying to share my experience about them!
I went to Goa, India on 23rd July, 2010! There was no direct flight from Dhaka-Goa! Even, if I want to use single airline, it will take at least 22hours to reach to Goa! On such a critical situation, Nazrul vy (Brother-in-law of arafat vy) from Pan Bright Tours & Travels, arranged connecting flights for me! At first I was very skeptical about the connecting flights because if any flight delays, I will miss the next flight! However, good news is that I did not miss any flight ! Continue reading
Just few hours ago I have purchased a macbook pro (latest model). Really amazing moments! Though I was not much fan of Macbook, but recent electricity problems and my recent interest to iPhone/iPad application development bound me to buy one macbook. Initially I planned to buy macbook rather than macbook pro however, I see a small price gap if I upgrade macbook to 4GB RAM! So, I found it better to buy macbook pro.
Today, I borrowed money from my brother and requested hasin hayder to give me company! Hasin vy picked me from Radission and we both went to Aloha Ishoppe at Gulshan 2. As we wanted to purchase immediately, they agreed to provide free backpack. The backpack promotion actually expired on 30th June, 2010. However, they could not ignore our requests to give one free even now . Thanks to them. It is really good.
I have a very very long plan to attend the meditation course offered by Quantum Foundation. From the 2nd year of my university life, I was planning to take the course. But I could not attend as my willingness, time and abilities did not match.
However, at the 2nd week of April, 2010, I have decided firmly that I must attend the upcoming course on April 16-19, 2010. It is because, from May, 2010 it will be totally uncertain where I will stay. I have so firm on my decision that I have even canceled the trip to Birishiri, Netrokona with my photography team.
On 12th April, I contacted Rabbit to book a seat for me. It seemed he was excited by hearing my decision . Then I meet him at Charukola, DU on 14th April and paid the course fee. On 16th May I wake up early (very hard for me indeed ) and headed for Marriot Convention Centre. I reached there ahead of time and contacted Rabbit who helped me managing my workshop ID.
The first day was not nothing new at all, as I almost habituated with those of meditation and was practicing at home from long ago. But I was in some physical trouble which continued to 2nd day too. I was enjoying the lectures by Guruji Mohajatak Shahid Al Bokhari!
The third and forth day was more enjoying as I could realize my inner strengths.
Finally, I became Quantum Graduate and got certificates and ID card.
At late evening, another meeting was scheduled earlier by Guruji to meet all quantum members who are in the IT industry, specially web development sector. We all gathered in the “Proshanti Hall” of Quantum Meditation at Shantinagar! Interesting to know that we almost all were known to each other .
I could not (or did not) write blog when I have joined Athena Software Associates Ltd. But today I am writing as double update. I have joined in Athena Software Associates Ltd. as System Administrator in last May. I had to manage a number of their servers mostly using cPanel and providing system level supports to the customers. I have enjoyed the work there as I have faced a lots of issues with cPanel and learned how to deal with them. Though I don’t have any plan to build my career as system administrator, I believe the gained experiences will help throughout my developer life.
In December, I have decided to resign from my position for a number of reason. The first and the biggest reason is my current physical problem for which I need quite long time full rest. Allah knows how much I can rest indeed. Some other minor reasons are, I started believing that I am becoming lazy there as the workload is not high. I wish and able to take more workload. Low workload means low learning to me. Moreover, I would enjoy working in team specially under supervision of some experts that would help me gaining knowledge faster.
Yesterday I have submitted my resign letter. However, I have to serve until January 31, 2010 for shifting my duties to new incumbent.
This job was the first full time job for me. The decision to resign was very tough one. I will miss the superb friendly environment of Athena Software Associates. I will miss all the colleagues of Athena.

আমি কয়েকটি কারণ লিখছিঃ
let me share some of my recent photography with you.
Most probably you are already aware of this game. It was introduced to me by Arafat Bro. But this game is initiated by tony bibbs.
Though I have observed many people, bloggers indeed, enjoyed this game, I did not find it as much funny thing. But still I have decided to disclose some facts of me, though possibly no one interested.
- Recently I have started rolling myself out. I have started learning Violion (Behala), I have also plan to learn car driving next month) and trying to enjoy the university life. I say that ‘I have admitted to University at 4th year’. That’s fact, I was so busy with myself from 1st year to 3rd year that I missed almost every moment of university life. Continue reading
Today I have purchased a new EDGE Modem for internet access as my previous modem died yesterday. The new modem’s brand is Histon. My old one was Anik modem. Today morning I visited Anik’s head office and showed my non-functioning modem. After a few minutes of testing, they said it is dead. But I it seemed to me that they could solve it as almost same problem occurred one year back. That was within guarantee period. That time, they said “it is a small problem. My engineer is not available otherwise he/she could fix it momentarily. Then they have given me a replace. But not new one; they gave one old/used modem. I asked “why old one?”. A man replied “Should we give a new modem for a small problem?”. Then he replied the above line. Now the modem’s warranty period is expired so they don’t care it anymore.
I am not sure about the quality of Histon modem. But it takes longer to initialize and to become accessible than that of Anik’s modem. Don’t see any significant changes in browsing or downloading. Same freak about connection speed. What does it mean?
he he. Yes, Anik’s modem always been connected at 460kbps but it could never cross 228kbps. This modem shows 384kbps on its package and other places. But it connects at 460kbps. So don’t they know their modem’s connection speed? Why they put low on label? Very opaque.
Anyway, lets see how much it serves me. The worse thing is that this modem also does not work in Linux .
