So here it is, March 24, the students’ applications open today. Other important dates listed here.
I was wondering if I should try my luck at GSoC this year. Bad that this occurred to me just 4 days ago, so lot of studying time is lost already.
Another hick-up is I’ve moved to a new place and BSNL has not provided my internet connection yet. I called them up so many times; no avail.
Yesterday, I had to work from an internet cafe, I couldn’t convince the admin that it is safe to connect my linux laptop to his network, so at last I had to convince him for xchat (30 minutes to convince him that xchat isn’t a virus and he can safely install that on his windows box.)
I mailed a small game idea of mine to kde-games-devel mailing list; impatiently waiting for reply.
Another interesting idea is Elements under OLPC where I am also interested in writing small python/pygame based games.
Chris Hager (probable mentor) is about to propose a detailed project list in about another 8hrs; will be interesting to watch tickets page of Elements.
Applications should be open around 19:00 UTC, thats around 00:30 March 25th in India. So waiting with fingers crossed.
