Summary 2007

2007 has been quite a fulfilling year.

Read -
Atlas Shrugged
Da Vinci Code
Deception Point
Angels and Demons

Learnt to -
Snowboard - Looking forward to this year's season
Drive - Licensed to Drive (only)
Use Auto Hot Keys - I use of couple of these at work since AHK can be used only on Windows OS.
Write Excel Macros - Ever so useful and quick.

Could not finish these books -
Four Hour Work Week
Stumbling on Happiness

Initiated into -
Linux/ Ubuntu - My laptop had a viral death within a month of purchase. I then switched to Ubuntu. My geeky friend installed it on my m/c. It is a fun learning experience.
Blogging - It is just my journal
Roller Skating - It was fun but I was scared of falling :-( - It is an easy way to track the useful articles I keep reading as well as a way to find popular information quickly on any subject.
Google Docs - More fun then attaching the docs. Moreover, you can make changes simultaneously and all these changes are updated real time.
Baking - mmm! Apple Spice Cake, Dark Chocolate Cake, Banana Loaf, Humming Bird Cake, Blueberry Scone, Chocolate Chip Cookies, Peanut Butter Cookies

Still Learning -
Linux Terminal Commands
