What have I been upto in pictures (Quiz)

These pictures show you what I've been upto today. The first person to guess it correct gets a treat from me (if you live in my city), else you get credits for getting it right. Seriously, it is not that hard. I need complete details of what I did, the more complete the details, the higher your chances of winnng and FCFS of-course (you win because you came to my blog earlier :-))

Hint: I am not violating any license agreement and the pictures themselves are links

Its another story that on my slow system it takes for ever for qemu to run. But the thrill of being able to do so, is amazing.
