Frankenstein AC Adapter

Excuse the time on this entry. I am donig this through vncviewer. For some reason, I can’t login to my admin section from the cyber-cafe. It is actually 1:40 in the afternoon. Anyway, I got the new AC adapter. It is HUGE and HEAVY. It is a metallic box and lavender in colour. I was very scared when I first hooked it up. I thought it would blow up my Gamecube. But it didn’t! It works like a charm! And I got it made for only $6! I have to hand it to the electricians here. They did a wonderful job. Sure, it looks like a mad scientists’s creation, but it works!

I am unable to post pictures due to the fact that each of them are about a meg and a half. The upload speed here isn’t so good, so I can’t transfer them over to AZ. They are all on CD right now, and I will put them up as soon as I get back to AZ.

Other than that, nothing much is going on. I am going to try and go to Bangalore sometime in the future.

New AC adapter and pretty malayalee girls

I got a new AC adapter. I got the electrical shop here to use the cable from my fried Nintendo Gamecube adapter and attach it to a 220V AC to 12V DC (3.25 Amps) adapter. This way I will be able to plug it into my Gamecube and use it… FINALLY! I just hope it doesn’t get fried or anything. That would really suck.

I haven’t been doing anything at all here. It gets a little boring at times. The day passes quickly though for some reason. I went to this kid’s first birthday yesterday. It turns out I am an uncle of sorts, because the kid’s mom is my second-cousin, which makes the kid my nephew. Crazy. Anyway, the party was good. There was good food. That is one thing I will miss when I come back to Arizona. The amazing food… sigh. You know, I am almost tempted to ask my parents to find me a nice Malayalee Hindu Nair girl who can cook some nice avial or something. I think they will be more than happy to do so. Actually, I must say that I have seen some really gorgeous girls here. That’s why there are not that many pretty Malayalee girls in Arizona. All of them are here in Kerala.

It rained like crazy yesterday – for almost the entire day. It hasn’t rained at all today. There is nothing much going on other than that. I am starting to like this cyber-cafe. It’s pretty neat. I am pleasantly surprised by the availability of broadband.

I tried to transfer the pictures from my digital camera to this computer. However, the computer does not have a CD drive. It has a USB port, but no CD drive. So, I cannot install the digital camera software. I am going to try it on another computer. I have close to seventy pictures, with a lot more to come. I will try to get the pictures onto the computer today. Otherwise, I will have to do it when I get back to Arizona.
