Living a nerd life... my most thrilling experience

This stamps me being a nerd. I recently visited New York museum of natural history. And being in presence of dinosaurs fossils was the most thrilling experience I can ever have.

Historically if there was one thing that made me atheist, it was knowing about dinosaurs and then discovering none of the Big Books ever mention them.

The most boring products from apple? or its just me?

First time i wasn't excited to see a new product from Apple(iWatch). And the only other news is larger iPhones???? whats up with that? I mean moto 360 got me racing to see its features, i didn't move a finger looking at a shot of iWatch

Finally migrated my laptop to Ubuntu 14.04

This is the longest (four+ months) I have _not_ installed the latest Ubuntu

Moved to MacPro finally

out of 5+ months of hell. Still not Linux but usable (and beeeautiful).
I don't know why world still tolerates windows.

Windows woes: (and solution NetSetMan)

Laptop's suppose to be used in only _TWO_ alternate locations? That too, only if one network does not have dhcp. Only other way to change your IP is like fifty million clicks through and hundreds of minutes wait time to configure the interface (i guess i should be thankful about "not being asked to reboot")
Finally found something to do what i need. http://www.netsetman.com/
