Classic GBA games on my Samsung Galaxy ACE

The android markets full of good games but the downside is they come at a price.
I loved the old days when we enjoyed the "Classic console games" so wanna play those on your android???
Hold on to your seats we are going back in time.....zzzzzzzzzoooooopppppppp!!!!!!!!!
 Lets play "The Road To WrestleMania"
Aim:Running the GBA games on your android device

Need to have:
  1. Android phone- i have a Samsung galaxy ACE with Gingerbread 2.3.4  (others not tested but should work, you are not risking anything.)
  2. Gamedroid.apk (Or any other GBA/VBAEmulator)
  3. And the ROM that you want to play. (Road to WrestleMania is what i chose)
  4. Downloading the Gamedroid app and ROMS  may not be legal so i am not posting the links, just to stay safe.
  5. you may also need to download the GBA bios (try googling).
  1. Download and install the Gamedroid.apk on your mobile.
  2. when you open it for the first time you may need to point to the bios file.
  3. Select the game you want to run and BaaAMMMMM there's a Game Boy in your hands.
Once you Get it running you can play it with on screen controls.
The games are 2D and not high in graphics (OLD SCHOOL).
But are still fun, bring back the old times.
You can run them on PC too, try a PC emulator instead of the apk.
Here's the link for those who would like to beat the shit out of or wrestlemania opponents.
And the following are the Screen shots of the game on my phone.

Happy gaming.

How to take care of your guitar

A lot has been said about taking good care of your guitar, but who cares. Let go of this attitude if you don't want to waste a beautiful instrument or end up paying a lot on the repairs that don't revive it.
I learned this the hard way, luckily i wasn't spending a lot either.

So follow this simple guide to increase the life of your guitar.

How it all started

Ten thousand days that i lived to be
still searching the unknown me
days that were spent as a child
worries few & thoughts ran wild
this is the story of me growing
in a poem wort knowing
In month of november at two
i was born fine like many of us do
loved by all and cared like a jewel
in protection of my family i used to dwel
bottle of milk in my little hand
sometimes i crawled couldn't stand
days passed on and i grew strong
walked around in a thong
a year went on day by day
i ran around learnt to play
my first few words surprised all
everyone loved the way i call
time went fast i went to school
life was begining to get crammed with rule
i made few friends and learned a lot
at time of exams i forgot
somehow i managed to get educated
got a job after a while i waited
but i wanted everything new each day
couldn't leave job i got the pay
got an account on
this is the way my blog was born.

Know me before there's no me.

  This is a brief introduction of who I am, just intended to let people know me before the know what i feel.
Hi my name is Swapnil (meaning dream like or seen in a dream), funny why my parents decided to call ,me that. I am a regular "guy next door". I have done my 10+2+Diploma in Electronics and Communication with some just "above average" score. I work for a MNC since past one year.
  I love playing/watching football (soccer)-its been a long time since i played now.
  I love to play guitar ( just learned a few chords, more later).
  Soak in the sun on a beach (My Hometown's close to a beach).
  Watch TV, play games, hang around with friends, sketch, sing (we have a "Band" that performs for a croud of 3 people sometimes) sleep, surf the net, read books.....& what else???? riding bike, going on vaccations, taking un-informed leaves.............the list goes on

Like my blog I am as you are very very  ordinary.
