BTW this is my first post this year! So a "Happy New Year" to all officially ;) I hope its not too late :P Well during these 3 months, I coded two(three?) websites, modified an Online Judge server for our college's online programming contest, brushed up gimp, played a lot with php and started using "Ratpoison and GNU screen" along with my e17 desktop environment.
