Hello Houston

Finally said bye bye to Kingsport yesterday. There are somethings that you never forget in your life. And my stay at Kingsport is one among them. It was my first city in the US, calm and peaceful with very scenic surroundings.

I also got a chance to interact with some really great bunch of people, both at work and otherwise. They were always ready to help, very friendly and full of fun!

My next assignment starts on Monday i.e, 21st of August at Houston for our client (BP). I would be back working on web-based stuff, which I love!. For the last 6 months, I was in more of VB.net and VB6 kind of environment. It was good. Anything to do with computers/Internet is fun for me :).

But, above all, now I get to stay with my wife. So, now we can finally get rid of long Skype/gTalk calls.

On the work front, I am all set for the next challenge!

Moving soon :)

After staying away for more than 8 months now, I would be finally staying with my dear wife!. If all goes well, I would be relocating to Houston soon. My assignment here in Kingsport would end on the 18th of August.

It has been a long wait, and both of us have been looking forward for this to happen since long. Now that its in sight, both of us are really happy and excited about it. Hope all goes well as planned.

Well, that also means that the past couple of days have been very hectic. One of my friends/colleague would be replacing me at work here at Kingsport. Its his first visit to the US too. So, Its kind of a deja-vu feeling for me, when it comes to setting him up, both at work and otherwise. Around seven months back I was in his place……. Anyway, the show goes on!

So, this also explains the why my blogging activity has come down in the past couple of days. :D Should be back to normal in a couple of weeks from now. i.e., once I settle down at Houston.

Impulse buying!

Well, I am not an Impulse buyer, but sometimes, some deals and offers are too hard to resists. So, ended up buying some electronics stuff in the last few days, which I kind of wanted to buy at the back of my mind.

  • Got a 1 GB RS-MMC card with MMC Adapter – from meritline.com – got it for around $29 including shipping. I can use this card with my Nokia 6600 and also the Canon A610 digital camera.1 GB RS-MMC card with adapter
  • Mobile Bluetooth Headset – Got Logitech Mobile Freedom Bluetooth Headset from amazon.com for $27.50 – which is pretty good price. The actual cost advertised by logitech is around $59.99 – Also the reviews on this product is pretty good.Logitech Mobile Freedom Bluetooth Headset
  • Got a PNY 1 GB Mini Attaché USB 2.0 Flash Drive for around $20 (no rebates etc) from dell.com. This one yet yet to ship from dell.com.PNY Mini Attaché USB 2.0 Flash Drive
  • Bought a Mobile USB travel charger for iPod – No more PC/Laptop required to charge the Nano! – got this one for around $6!

I dont say that these would be the best ever prices that I would ever get these item. But its always best to buy when good deals are available. The catch is, these deals dont last long!. Good deals expire with a blink of the eye!!!! …….. ….there is always another time, but you need to keep an close eye on the deals available.
