Yes, I have been off the blog scene for quite some time now.
In the meanwhile, along with my friend and former colleague Sarath started Avanisys, aimed at developing a storage product. We got it into a decent prototype stage but we were unable to proceed further, mainly due to financial considerations.
In the meanwhile I have also been part of a video transcoder company, where I was responsible for designing multiple things including the background daemon, monitoring daemon, a restart daemon and also wrote the SNMP Agent for the appliance. I also designed the Management GUI for the appliance and wrote the CLI part of the management application.
Lot of work accomplished. Time to move forward. Will provide you with more updates soon.
