Fever is down now. I'm feeling quite okay, but still quite weak. No idea if I'll go for training tomorrow or not, alas! Damn this illness >_< But I gotta share something cool with all of you guys! :) Recently, in a giveaway I got this software Hotspot Shield Elite. I didn't know about it earlier, but I'm kind of exploring it these days. I found it to be quite cool, and would like to share the link for the giveaway with you all apart from describing the software, giving some links, screenshots, etc.
