The first weekend of 2008 turned out to be a tech-y and expensive one for me. On Saturday, I went with Shiva and bought a 250GB hard drive! The smart thing I did was take him with me. (Actually, I was the one who tagged along on his Yamaha. He did the driving, the searching and the purchasing, with me behind him like a kid lost in a carnival.)
And believe me, you CAN get lost in the lanes of SP road. I have never seen so many computers, electronics and accessories at one place. I couldn't but help feeling sorry for a street urchin who was trying to sell shirts in a corner. I don't think he managed to sell one shirt the entire time I was there. He should try selling bags next time.
Anyway, we scouted a few shops trying to find the best deal for a hard drive and casing. We settled on a shop and I paid the money. Rs.2700 for a 250 Gig hard drive. With Casing + Tax - Rs. 3600. 5 years warranty for the drive, a year for the casing. Not a bad deal at all. At least I did not get ripped off, I made a good move by going with someone who knows the stuff.
250 Gig!! I am sure I wont have any free space in Portus (Yeah, thats my hard drive's label!) after 2 months. Bill Gates once said - 640K of memory ought to be enough for anybody :)
Today I added music to my blog. Which explains the title :)
