Happy Birthday Andromeda

As you all know, the new year hype is building up everywhere and I am not an exception :)
I been bugging (not really Lol) my dad for the last two days to get me a laptop so that I can "network" it with my Desktop to practice for my RHCE examination. He was a little bit hesitating as I already have my cute, lovely, awesome and super fast "Fire Nooks" (yep! that's my desktop).

This was where my negotiation skills came into picture Lol I somehow made him finally agree (Don't ask me how, that's a top secret Lol) and this evening I bought one :) YAAY ME! It's an Acer Aspire 4730z

It looks cute, handy, comparitively cheaper and I am quite happy with it. The main part of it is, I have named it as "Andromeda". Guess why?

Well, I always had and still have a "thing" for space related stuff. Hence I chose Andromeda to be the name of this little cutie pie (my new born baby laptop Lol Now i know this is too much but that is what I am... kind of crazy).

If you are not aware what Andromeda is, it could be either of the below:

  • A constellation in the northern hemisphere between Cassiopeia and Pegasus; contains the Andromeda galaxy
  • As per Greek mythology an Ethiopian princess and daughter of Cassiopeia; she was fastened to a rock and exposed to a sea monster that was sent by Poseidon, but she was rescued by Perseus and became his wife
Here is the snapshot of what an Andromeda Galaxy look like:

You can use Google to know more about Andromeda, if you are interested.

Anyways, I am installing RHEL 5 in my Andromeda now... See you all later mates.

Keep smiling; let others wonder what you are upto :)
