Gadget that I wanted for my office desk

I finally got the gadget that I wanted for my office desk.

And I got it from here, I am thinking of getting another one for my dad.

Planet Mobile at - Gadgets, gizmos & novelties - digital cameras & mp3 players

A total dissappointment
I finally get the Planet Mobile and it doest even look like the picture on the site and moreover one of planets was broken and moreover it was made of plastic, which is shit. Hell I have been waiting for this for a long time and this is what I get it is really bad.

Nice windows software site

A new idea for a mobile application

After a long time I have come up with a new application for mobile, I dont know if I have blogged about it before ??
The mobile application should interface into Transport for London Journey Planner, that would be realy great.
I am not sure about the type of interface that TFL provides but I guess I can drop them an email and find out. Or the other option being hacking into their HTML and fetching all the data that I require.

Here is the TFL Journey Planner

Bluetooth Star Trek Communicator

Oooo this is really cool, and if it is actually a mod'ed garage door remote control: It is really a very good idea.

Hell I am not using my head enough, not being creative enough. Have to loose a soft or single track mind and look for possibilities.

Having the Mondays after a long time

I am having the Mondays after a really longtime, I think that last one was about a month back. I dont think there is someting missing and I cant put my finger on it!

I have also been sketching on a regular basis, I think I really need to learn to play some music that should be a nice kinda creative kick. It makes a lot of sence considering that I listen to a lot of music, I practically listen to a lot of music and hardly watch any TV -- well that cant be totally becasue I love listening to music but also on the fact that all the stuff on the TV is total crap nothing worth watching.

I can only hot deploy stuff to the admin WL server :-(

About a couple of days back I configured my WL for hot deployment so I didnt have to bounce the server every time I changed the code and recompiled the stuff.

Now since I am working on 2 projects at the same time I have to set up 2 server envs, since they both of them are using different Connection Pools and stuff. So I thought I will create a managed server to the existing domain.
So here is what I will be having
1. Admin Server - this is working fine with the hot deployment and stuff.
2. The additional Server with the new data sources and differnt EJBs and stuff.

But I had a feeling that hot deplyment only works in case applications are deplyoed to the admin server. I have a read through Weblogic Definitive Guide and it seems so. That is really not good since I wanted to swap between working on the 2 projects and I dont want to go about setting up the local server env every time I switch between it.

Now I have a few alternatives
1. Let go of hot deployment on one of the projects that is not running on the admin server.
2. Create a new domain and the I will hot deplyment on both the projects that I am working on.

Nice review about GTA: San Andreas

What is really liked about this review was the thing where in they talk about how CJ's health changes as he moves through the game, running around and jumping, the type of food he eats etc.
