Last few weeks I am kind of busy at work as getting to understand all internal Yahoo! technologies. Atleast having fun back on MySQL related things as I get to work back on this. But after I took Yahoo! offer, had a chance for Oracle InnoDB, but its too late as it might have allowed me to work on InnoDB storage engine remotely. That would have been a idle position as that allows to work remotely. Anyway, Yahoo! is doing good and may be I have a chance down the line to work for Y! bangalore as well.
Last weekend, tried to upgrade from Windows XP SP2 to Vista Ultimate on HP nc6220 laptop. The upgrade finished with out any errors (even though it took more than one hour). But once the upgrade is done; the system keeps rebooting back and forth as it can not boot to Windows Vista. I can only see flashing regular old windows blue screen which appears for few seconds and disappears. Atleast it allowed me to downgrade back to XP; so I did rolled back all the installation, that saved another a day of hassle.
Its really funny how user-friendly the upgrade process is. I know that it will work if I do clean install; but I will loose all the settings; and no updates to my Microsoft Vista Blog.
