With constant encouragement & support from Prof Ravi Poovaiah we continued this project at IDC (http://www.idc.iitb.ac.in/) and worked on weekends.
We intented to finish and put it up in DDS 2009 (http://www.dds2009.org/home.html). But the trials took a lot longer than expected . Finally Saurav joined the team and together we could achieve some exciting results.

I am not sure if I should acknowledge now only , as we still have to finish the final table.
But there is always a room for a Thank You !! :)
All the first thanks a lot to Ravi Sir for his support & motivation, without whom we would not have come this far.
Thanks (in fact no thanks :P) to Kumar & Atish who are the true initiators for OOBI series and I am glad to take forward the work they have started.
A loads of thanks to NUI community for their resources and timely help. This community created new & great friends like Sharath Patali, Saurabh, Taha who were always ready to chip in for any help.
