I always wanted to keep my blog up to date, but as you can see, I couldn't do it. :D
Twitter is one of the reasons for not blogging recently. I joined Twitter exactly 555 days ago and now I'm addicted to it. I didn't use it frequently after I joined, but now Twitter is one of the first things I check when I start the computer. It all started in the month of April, when I was doing a coursework.
So many things happened in this year.
In this year also, our batch went to Nuwara-eliya in July. This time we spent two nights there and had a great time. We enjoyed a lot! :D
I also got a chance to go to India in August. Me and my friend went to Bangalore to present a paper for International Workshop on Technology for Education (T4E'09). See my diGIT article for more details.
diGIT? yes! It is an online IT magazine and it was a great opportunity for me to contribute. I got to know the editor-in-chief of diGIT, Mr. Gihan via Twitter. I thank Gihan for giving me the opportunity to contribute.
I wrote 4 articles on ICEfaces and here are the links:
Getting started with ICEfaces and Eclipse.
Ajax Push with ICEfaces.
Ajax Push with ICEfaces, Using RenderManager API.
That's it. I don't have a mood to write all here. ;)
Now the final year of the degree has started and there are so many things to study. Even though it's the final year, I have to wait two more years to the get the degree as I'm doing it part time. Now we get coursework every week and it's really hard to have a good night's sleep these days. :)
Finally, here is the important thing. As you may have seen, my previous post was about a dream come true. I bought an HP dv5t laptop from USA and got it on 20th December 2008. Yes, it was a dream for a long time. To have my own laptop and I'm really glad that I type this post using the same laptop. :)
Here is a photo I took when I was in India. (The photo is not very clear)
This laptop is the main reason for writing this blog post as I wanted to blog about it when it completes a year.

I'm also waiting for Christmas! Love this time of the year. Too bad Santa Clause is not coming to my home now! :)
Okay, it's time to stop now. By the way, I'm sorry if you see any mistakes in this post. I'm not good at writing now.. Believe me, I was really good, but for some reason I have lost that ability.
