Feeling (not) well!

Looks like I am under some curse. Cant get my mind working, and there is this throbbing in my head that renders me useless for any effort. Doctor doctor, where are you? Gotta go to the APL plant tomorrow. Their development system is offline. And I dont know a heck about what the system is exactly about. Its Excellency FactoryLink 7.1 sahab refused to get installed on my system. Fine, what you want, dork. They'll get me a new system at the office, and I'll do all of the fixing there! Nice, isnt it :D WebWave 2005 was a success, to say the least. The event went in the smoothest possible manner, and finally everyone was content. CP even thanked me, and I was like magnanimous, "There is nothing to thank about, really!" Guess she's dropping hints, but I am booked, already. I think the Josh guys did a really nice job, coming up with an album like that. I especially like Kabhi and Josh Naal. These days they are on my Media Player, alongwith Raghav, and ofcourse, Aaroh and Atif [okay dont snicker, but Atif is a hit with Addat]. And could anyone translate this for me: [Josh, ofcourse] Aj nachke dikha de sanu haniya vele khushyaan de nit nahin aunyaan Gida pa sade naal hun goriye badi sohni lagi ganay diye boriye Oh hadyaan na tut jaan teriyaan gide'ch pade hanariya Oye Josh nu na aj tokhnan achdeyaan nu na hun rokhna Yep, I can make the most out of it, but still it gets me stumped in a few places, like "Gida pa sada naal hun goriye" and "gide'ch pade hanariya". I am just curious :)

Omer Kureishi died!

KARACHI, March 14: Legendary cricket writer and commentator Omer Kureishi died today. He was 77 and left behind a son Javed Kureishi to mourn his death. He was rushed to the hospital last Monday (March 7) after an attack of Asthma. Omer Kureishi wrote for various newspapers for nearly half a century and his columns were regularly published in daily Dawn. He become famous for his cricketing commentary pairing with Jamshed Marker which delighted listeners in fifties and sixties. Damn! Why did he have to die? And die so soon? A few more years of witty and humorous writings wouldn't have been too much a bother. And why, when I was away from the city? March 14, I was at Lahore. Preparing for my trip back home. I didnt even know it. I didnt have time to be in shock. Although the shock now is too great. Oh how I'd miss his witty columns, and all his views about the cricket setup. But I guess, everybody has his time, and his time just ran out. May he rest in peace.

23rd March - Pakistan Day

Well, its Pakistan Day after all. We all should be glad that this day happened. And I think about the significance of this day, and the meaning it carries in our lives. Come on, for the most of my life it has been just another holiday - moreso when I landed at university. This day is one of those holidays that the whole country observes. And damn my university, it doesnt believe in local holidays! This day is like a minor version of August 14. There are no jhandian, no flags fluttering on roof tops, no badges, stickers, paper caps, valiant men etc. Bus there is that parade at Constitution Avenue, Islamabad, in the morning that makes it sound something worthwhile; and ofcourse the Khabarnama with its reporting of the various medals held out by the President, and local constituents. Apart from that, there is nothing worthwhile. The whole day passes just lolling around. The Pakistan Day Parade was of intrigue when I was young. I used to get up early then, too. Young when you are impressed by the military might, the khaki uniforms, the soaring airplanes, the deadly missiles. All of these feelings subside when you get to know that your are the victim of discrimination. But, what the heck! I am still a Pakistani at heart. And I'll remain that forever. Somehow I got up early enough today to catch the last moments of the Parade being broadcast on PTV. My father being an enthusiast [its also a way of waking up snoring sloths], the TV was on with full volume. The President of Afghanistan, Hamid Karzai, was there too, with Prez Musharraf and PM Shaukat Aziz. Maybe Karzai is too keen to make friends with Pakistan. He's here on every national holiday. And when the planes were soaring [and roaring] by, in the quest to look at them earnestly, the Jinnah Cap that is always to be found on Mr. Karzai's head, dropped to the ground. The scene was very amusing for Musharraf, Shaukat Aziz, the military brass, even the guard that was on duty. Karzai had a sheepish smile on his face, and for the rest of the ceremony, the cap was nowhere to be seen. My advice to Mr. Karzai, keep firm hold of your topi, there are a lot of people here who love to play with topis!

The Government is snooping

Dawn: Privacy of some seven million e-mail users in the country is prone to violation as the government admitted in the National Assembly that log-files of users' internet activity were kept for a period of one month for security reasons. In a measured response, the government informed the house that the cabinet's approval for any such process had not been sought by any organisation. However, the Pakistan Telecommunication Authority, as the regulatory body of the telecommunication sector, has issued instructions to all ISPs (Internet Service Providers) to maintain record (log files) of their customers for a period of one month to help trace cyber crime culprits if required in any investigation under the law. The government also informed the house that Internet users in the country maintained more than one e-mail accounts. "As per record held with PTA, at present there are about one million registered Internet subscribers in Pakistan. As estimated, seven million people use Internet and each user is maintaining about three e-mail addresses. From the tone of it, it looks like that only the ISPs are required to keep a tab on their customers. Now tell me, what fraction of the internet users in Pakistan actually use ISPs' email accounts? I'd say, less than 20%. Majority of the users log on through cable nets, cyber cafes etc. And many [like me] have lost faith in ISP email accounts. And then those who do use it, I'd say the majority would lie in the age group of 35-50 years. When you get around 35 years of age, I think you get mature. The majority of e-crimes that happen across the globe are done by people in the age group of 16-22 years. And come on, for people in that age group, using ISP email is so uncool! And if they are talking about terrorist organizations, they are kidding whom? Surely the terrorist organizations aren't that naive. Even a 14-year old knows about proxies and anonymity in the websphere. Organizations like AlQaeda [I'm not necessarily implying that they are terrorists] aren't too technologically advanced? I've heard that they use satellite phones, and emails to keep in contact. Now they wouldn't ignore so big a hole as to use ISP accounts or not be too concerned about anonymity. Come on guys, get a life! And the last thought, if they think about caching the web activities [actually a far-fetched idea], that would be a BIG privacy issue on behalf of the government. And after that [if that is implemented], the next step would be to log ALL the activities of a person online, a kind of the Big Brother scenario [Lol I just remembered George Orwell's 1984]. A thought that is too frightening. Not to mention that this would place a big burden on the meek shoulders of the crappy ISPs of Pakistan. They'll have another thing to keep track of. And the criminals would just find other ways to play happy.

Silly me!

I am sorry, Plump. I'll make over for your assignment. But you didn't leave it with me. If its lost somewhere then I can't help. I'll talk to FA on Thursday, and definitely do something about your assignment, just you find it in time.

Things I fucking hate!

  1. I've changed.
  2. I have been fucking dependent.
  3. My new friends are crap.
  4. I've got no other choice but to be friends with them.
  5. I've lost touch with my inner self.
  6. There's a constant throbbing in my head, thing you call a headache.
  7. Mom says I've got a serious chest problem.
  8. The fucking doctor is always out.
  9. I hate being dependent, I wasn't dependent pehlay!
  10. Fuck the fucking fucker, I dont remain in a good mood for long!

Meera: on the kiss

Well, it wasn't so big an issue that has been made out of it. What the heck, our girls need to get out there and prove themselves too. And its all in the trade. What she did was only a kiss, and that too on the screen, nobody gets to the directors when they use the casting couch? Here is what Meera has to say: Other than one scene in which my character receives a peck on the neck by her lover after they declare their love for each other, the film is spotlessly clean. Did they want me to act in a burqa even if the role didn't demand it? Yeah, do you want to make an art film? Just think of that, Meera, in a burqa throughout the film. Gee, I wouldnt wanna see that! I've done nothing in Nazar that hasn't already been done by all the popular actors of the Indian screen, whom everyone watches with great enthusiasm in Pakistan. I've worked with an international team and represented my country globally, and Pakistanis should be proud of it. Ofcourse, Meera jee, we are proud of you. You are indeed representing your country, and making Pakistan known throughout the world for its plump heroines that plot to ensnare foreign film directors. This is just the beginning. I plan to do some more movies in India and hopefully will star opposite Shah Rukh Khan soon. Then I'm looking at Hollywood. I'm taking courses to improve my English and hope to act with Tom Cruise some day. Ofcourse, you need some courses seriously, improve your English, then set your sights on Hollywood. I am sure they are waiting for you. Indeed Meera, you're great. I hope you do star in some Hollywood movies so we could get to see some rated movies of Pakistani babes :) Till then I cross my fingers. Source

Mystery resolved

They can't decide why men are obsessed with breasts. Well, this effectively sums it up.

Remaking Manwa Re!

One of our excursions at Lahore was the route taken by Ali Noor in his hit song Manwa Re video. Well, not exactly the same route, but remarkably similar. We got to see the Shahi Muhallah. Ab don't ask me what's it. It wasn't at all like I had imagined it to be, or as these kind of places are portrayed on the screen. They were not sitting outside, no advertisement of their bodies. I've heard that a new guy would get a helluva lot of trouble finding the perfect piece, or any piece at that. The Police has connections inside, and the new person without a strong back would land in more trouble then he would bargain for. The alley was normal, people strolling around, cars going through, normal business without any hint of what goes inside those shabby houses. We caught glimpse of only three or so pros, and they were sitting inside the houses, waiting for customers so that they could make a quick buck. A strange thing happened too, as we entered the alley [we were there for the first time], there was this eunuch that came directly in the front of our car, and he started showering our car with petals! Imagine that! The first time we are there, phatti pari hai, and then we were a little excited, and this happens to us. Whatever we would do he would not leave his place. We coaxed, cajoled, threatened, threw expletives, but he wont budge. What a scene that would have made. Then he agreed for 10 rupees to leave his place, and we were thankful to God. Advice: Never stop at these kind of places as they are highly troublesome. Plus, dont go there if you are weak hearted, and never go there on foot!


They were naive, to say the least. They came for us just as we had finished smoking pot. We were huddled in a corner, just off the main corridor at the campus. It was Saturday, a low activity day all along. It was me, and a female friend [isnt it an era of female liberty?]. And they thought we were cuddling up, getting mushy. Indeed. We were taken to the Administrative Officer [or someone, I am not required to remember, am I?]. They gave us a lecture on how CS undergrads should and should not waste their precious time. They even proposed that they are willing to contact our respective homes should we feel inclined for a possible betrothal, but no, no wasting time like this: there are times when there is only God who is watching. And then the golden quote: "I hope we will not meet for this reason again." Sure we won't. You don't know the real thing, dudee. We aren't schmoozling. Contact us when you need fresh pot at the university, free of cost [Introductory offer, ofcourse]. P.S. I know its not good practice to smoke weed at the university, but hey, what the heck?!

I am tired of explanations

Too much Counter-Strike

Image hosted by

This is what happens after too much Counter-Strike, the South Park way! The mufflers are there for a little OBL look. The shotgun seems fine, but the dagger is long enough to be a sword. I know CS doesnt feature any swords, but what the heck. Maybe considering the height of the character, this actually IS a dagger, but looks like a sword! And the cigarette, no OBL doesnt smoke, nor does anybody in CS. Just that the slightly open mouth was looking weird.

Make your own South Park characters here

Commotion at the Competition

Somehow the people at Softec weren't ready to accept my group and our project into the software competition. No reason was given. But since we already were there, they had to take us in. We approached the Society Advisor, Mr. Belal Hashmi. Considering the brotherhood that we are in, he had no choice. But the software competition people were a tad pissed off. Khair we got in and were alloted a place. This was all happening on Friday night, at around 11:30 pm. We put up our system, signed for the monitor and accessories, and began setting up our project so that we'll not be in for any problem the next day. But lo, Nanda had to download the project [It was his system though] from somewhere, as according to him, the latest copy was on his superway account. And by the quirk of fate, the superway site is blocked on the Lahore campus server [No I dont know the reason]. We searched around in his Hotmail and GMail accounts, but to no avail. The copy was only on superway account, and it was inaccessible. It seemed like wasted effort. We didn't know any internet cafes in Lahore, and waisay bhi it was around midnight. But then I thought, being a computer science graduate must have some benefits, right? I used to surf via some anonymous proxies, and I went to those. But, they went as far as the login page, and then one or the other ad would pop up, requiring to signup in order to proceed. Frustrating. Then I remembered a bouncing technique that used to happen with the CNN site. But they had discontinued it too. Nothing was in our favor, the lab technicians said that the problem would be solved only in the morning, when the network administrator comes in. But according to reports, I have too much self-confidence to walk away from bad situations, and I thought, there should be some way outta it. And then it hit! Why not try it via the DNS? I queried the DNS of the superway site, and tried to login through the DNS entry and presto! It was there! Without any anonymizer help or anything! These Network Administrators could simply be dumb or something. Blocking a site and leaving a loophole large enough for anyone to pass through! Anyways we did our work, downloaded our project, set it up, and went to sleep paying due respects to the Lahore crew. Wonder what Ayaz Ahmed would say if he hears about this!

My Handwriting Analysis

Blog-hopping feels like a nice pasttime. I get to explore new territories, meet new people, understand ideas. I read about this Handwriting Wizard on Samar's blog. According to her "it's pretty accurate. misses a few points lekin hits the mark more often than not." Indeed it does. My handwriting is indeed very blatant. It uncovers those parts of me that I didnt even know of. Here is the analysis: Something is incomplete in Yousuf's life. He feels frustration relating to his physical needs and desires. Somewhere in his life there is some disappointment, non-fulfillment, and interruption. This is very likely to relate to Yousuf's sexual needs. [Yeah! I am incomplete! Meri shaadi karado!!!] Yousuf has a temper. He uses this as a defense mechanism when he doesn't understand how to handle a situation. Temper is a hostile trait used to protect the ego. Temper can be a negative personality trait in the eyes of those around him. [Do somebody remember when the last time I was in temper?] Yousuf is sarcastic. This is a defense mechanism designed to protect his ego when he feels hurt. He pokes people harder than he gets poked. These sarcastic remarks can be very funny. They can also be harsh, bitter, and caustic at the same time. [Ofcourse, sarcasm is my other name :) ] Yousuf is a practical person whose goals are planned, practical, and down to earth. This is typical of people with normal healthy self-esteem. [Sun lo!] He needs to visualize the end of a project before he starts. he finds joy in anticipation and planning. Notice that I said he plans everything he is going to do, that doesn't necessarily mean things go as planned. Yousuf basically feels good about himself. He has a positive self-esteem which contributes to his success. He feels he has the ability to achieve anything he sets his mind to. However, he sets his goals using practicality-- not too "out of reach". He has enough self-confidence to leave a bad situation, yet, he will not take great risks, as they relate to his goals. A good esteem is one key to a happy life. Although there is room for improvement in the confidence catagery, his self-perception is better than average. In reference to Yousuf's mental abilities, he has a very investigating and creating mind. [Ofcourse I know I have one] He investigates projects rapidly because he is curious about many things. He gets involved in many projects that seem good at the beginning, but he soon must slow down and look at all the angles. He probably gets too many things going at once. When Yousuf slows down, then he becomes more creative than before. Since it takes time to be creative, he must slow down to do it. He then decides what projects he has time to finish. Thus he finishes at a slower pace than when he started the project. He has the best of two kinds of minds. One is the quick investigating mind. The other is the creative mind. His mind thinks quick and rapidly in the investigative mode. He can learn quicker, investigate more, and think faster. Yousuf can then switch into his low gear. When he is in the slower mode, he can be creative, remember longer and stack facts in a logical manner. He is more logical this way and can climb mental mountains with a much better grip. Yousuf will be candid and direct when expressing his opinion. He will tell them what he thinks if they ask for it, whether they like it or not. So, if they don't really want his opinion, don't ask for it! [Yeah! Isiliye 'people' get mad when I analyse their works :(] Yousuf will demand respect and will expect others to treat him with honor and dignity. Yousuf believes in his ideas and will expect other people to also respect them. He has a lot of pride. Yousuf uses judgment to make decisions. He is ruled by his head, not his heart. He is a cool, collected person who is usually unexpressive emotionally. Some may see him as unemotional. He does have emotions but has no need to express them. He is withdrawn into himself and enjoys being alone. The circumstances when Yousuf does express emotions include: extreme anger, extreme passion, and tremendous stress. If someone gets him mad enough to tell him off, he will not be sorry about it later. He puts a mark in his mind when someone angers him. He keeps track of these marks and when he hits that last mark he will let them know they have gone too far. He is ruled somewhat by self-interest. All his conclusions are made without outside emotional influence. He is very level-headed and will remain calm in an emergency situation. In a situation where other people might get hysterical, he has poise. Yousuf will work more efficiently if given space and time to be alone. He would rather not be surrounded by people constantly. In a relationship, he will show his love by the things he does rather than by the things he says. Saying "I love you" is not a needed routine because he feels his mate should already know. The only exception to this is if he has logically concluded that it is best for his mate to hear him express his love verbally. Yousuf is not subject to emotional appeals. If someone is selling a product to him, they will need to present only the facts. They should present them from a standpoint of his sound judgment. He will not be taken in by an emotional story about someone else. He will meet emergencies without getting hysterical and he will always ask "Is this best for me?" [Unemotional? Me? There was this big question mark over my personality, and I think its getting around to being an exclamation mark now. Got your answers?] People that write their letters in an average height and average size are moderate in their ability to interact socially. According to the data input, Yousuf doesn't write too large or too small, indicating a balanced ability to be social and interact with others. So that's it. My personality, laid bare in front of every one to trample on. But still there are few things that nobody would never know of. Except somebody. And to be that somebody, you'll have to analyse me.

Of pretty faces and odd accents

So I am back. Back from a tiring journey, from the harsh weather, from the mismanagement and the same menu for three days, from dance parties and ultimate khuwari, I am back from it all! The trip to Lahore wasn't as bad as it could've been. The Softec guys had done hardwork, but most of their hardwork was directed in the wrong direction. When you are working on something for eight months, things tend to get forgotten at the last moment, and you overlook the details. For example, on the day when the participants had to report in, there was no one to escort them. Some of the people complained that they had arrived at two in the afternoon and they were catered to at eleven in the evening. The accomodation was arranged in a PTCL Hostel just off Tufail Road, Cantt. Though there is nothing to say wrong about the accomodation people [Raza, you rock!], there werent enough buses to transport the participants to and from the campus. This hostel is around 30-45 minutes duration from the Lahore campus, and there were only two buses to cater all of the hundred or so local participants, as well as the international participants. So it worked like they used to pick up the international students first [they were accomodated in a separate hotel], the buses dropped them off to the campus, and then they came for us local participants. Just imagine it, more than a hundred people, and only two buses. The buses usually made two/three trips to transport them all. Then at the main entrance, there was no one to welcome the guests, or the participants. They were supposed to find their own way through the event. Atleast there should've been a team of GR people to take the guests on a tour. They made us eat the same thing through out the event. Something like biryani [without the masala] and qorma [without masala too]. This was the menu when I decided to eat at the campus. On the closing ceremony, I didn't even bother to go to the eating area. I had too much of it. Yes, I did encounter a couple of good faces. Lahori girls are naive, to the say least. Or maybe, Karachi guys are too scheming. You just need a cute face and a straight accent to take them into groove. Yep, I was asked for my correspondence [read email] a couple of times. And I was happy to provide it. I just hope they contact me soon [I'll have something to look forward nationwide then :P] And I have the pictures that I'll put up soon. Looks like this week's gonna be Softec week! Thanks for supporting me [You know I am talking about you].

Softec 2005

So I am off to Lahore, for a few days. There is this Softec 2005, which is being held at FAST Lahore. Well, I am representing my university there. Now now dont snicker. There are times when people like me get to represent something great, its just that, just like that. Maybe I couldnt blog for a few days. So friends, dont get disappointed. I ll be back, and maybe back with nice memories and more interesting posts! Those of you who miss me, leave a comment, or email me [if you know the address]. I'll get back to you when I get back. And that, is a promise. You can read about Softec 2005 here.

The Computer Architecture dilemma

It all started with the Computer Architecture TA giving us 5 out of 15 in the final project, on the pretext that we had chapofied [copy-pasted] the project from somewhere. The "Five" was particularly helpful in getting me a 62 point something on this course [duhh! I was expecting more!]. Talk about the idiosyncrasies of individuals. So just so Hassaan came up with the idea of having a re-demo so that we could make up with the course instructor himself. A noble idea indeed, but none that me and Adnan were particularly optimistic that it would work out. And then we set about the task of presenting ourselves for the demo. We went all the way to city campus. The Course Instructor decided that he wasn't gonna check our code all along. Fair enough, but then how do you think you could substantiate the cheating allegation? So he decided to have a viva kind of demo. And that was it. He left no stones unturned in trying to somehow catch us in a loom, and strike away with our marks, but to his utter disappointment, that wasn't to be the case. What do you expect when you're thoroughly prepared? When he didn't get anything to have us embarassed on and to accept that we indeed had cheated and were a bunch of chays who were trying to make a chay out of him, he let us go, and asked us to provide us with the project. The most efficient and overly-enthusiastic Hassaan copied the whole folder, along with the help files, to his system. Not that I am blaming Hassaan of anything, but this Instructor was indeed looking out for something to have us implicated. And then he mailed us: Subject: your project Sent: 3/5/2005 11:05 AM Importance: Normal I forgot to ask you 1 more question In how many days you make this project. also give me starting and ending date Not that it was of any alarm to us, and I just mailed him back, with a little bit of clarification [I had in mind that he has in mind that it was in the TA's mind that we were cheating]. Here is what I mailed: From: me To: The CA Instructor Sent: 3/5/2005 1:30 PM Subject: RE: your project We started this project around mid-November, and got it almost completed till the start of January. It took almost a month considering that we didnt work during the finals. We dont remember the exact dates. We managed to complete such a comprehensive project in a month because the OS project resembles the JVM architecture and it helped us a lot. Regards. Phew! Considering that we indeed had this phase completed, and that we would get a "few" more marks in the project, we were at ease then. But bad days come faster than good ones. I got a mail from him almost the same day, with a bit of irony: From: The CA Instructor To: me Subject: RE: your project Sent: 3/5/2005 5:18 PM well the magnitude of the project does not show that you make it in a month time some of the files are created on feb 04 to may 04. It is not due to the system clock problem because some have the date of dec 04 and jan 05. there are also some csharp files moreover just tell me who is mujtaba? I think Fatema gives too much marks. Well, that was particularly enough for me. Personal enmity aside, this was no reason to discriminate among the students. I had to reply a last time, whatever he may think. From: me To: The CA Instructor Subject: RE: your project Sent: 3/7/2005 9:57 AM With all due respect, sir, as I had mentioned this project greatly resembled the Operating Systems project we had developed during Spring 2004. The OS project also needs us to develop a Virtual Machine like the one we developed in this project. Most of the help about how to set about designing the project was taken from the OS project. Only we had to modify the instruction set architecture and the methods to read the class file. The rest is almost the same. The issue of dates that you mention might stem out of the fact that we have reused files and code from our Operating System project. And that, I feel, is not an offence. Doing a quick search for "Mujtaba", I found that this was contained in one of the help files. There were plenty of help files that were used to understand the bytecode and the JVM architecture. I hope since you have this word document, you'll also have other documents and pdfs etc that may provide an insight to the lengths we went into building this project. And I do feel we are still not awarded accordingly. Regards. Somebody asked me to atleast change the attitude of the mail, but ho boy, that wasnt to be. I ve had enough and at that point I didnt care anymore about anything. In the end, I am not sure that he has awarded us marks or not. My final grade in Computer Architecture is posted as B-. Wondering how I can a B- on that 62 point something? Dont blame me for venting my anger on him. He has done a general upgrading. And I still dont have my marks.

What what!

According to Jon, there are certain benefits in being a computer enthusiast. I whole heartedly agree with him. The following is a visitor that stumbled across my site, a few of his statistics:

Location: Punjab, Faisalabad, Pakistan Hostname: ( Referring URL: kameez sexy girls of pakistan&hl=en&lr=&ie=UTF-8&start=10&sa=N

Simply put, he was searching for "Shalwar Kameez sexy girls of Pakistan". Some sick pervert, how can you envision sexy girls of Pakistan, and where does the Shalwar Kameez part fit in? Just for fun I clicked on this URL, and I could only marvel at this poor person's bewilderment, as most of the links were from beauty houses and different news papers/tabloids. And just wondered what I had in my blog that could attract such people. So it came out that the blog about the guy who wanted to work in McDonalds [it had the word "sexy" in it] and that of the Valentine's day email ["Shalwar Kameez", "Girl"]. So that was it, I am feeling disappointed that a visitor went unfulfilled from my blog. I hope to see you again, dickhead. Next time you should contact me directly, I ll provide you with some "Girls"! PS Jon if you read this its just a coincidence that this person came across me today! PPS Any other perverted minds: No use of clicking on this google link cause it doesnt provide anything that this person was looking for, and most probably it wouldnt satisfy you too!

The IBM people...

It was supposed to be three people from IBM, and it was supposed to be held in the Conference Room. But alas! It didnt happen as it was supposed to. There was only this one guy from IBM, and he was all the time in Ayaz Ahmed's room. We had to discuss the project with him at the office. And then, there werent enough seats! Standing and trying to convince him enough was a tiring job. We almost had a backache. But I think that was worth it, he seemed convinced enough. Now just hope that his superiors buy the idea. It would be cool enough then, working for IBM, although its Equinox, but it doesnt matter at all! Now just have to mail this IBM guy a souped-up project charter, and have to discuss with him the modules and the timeplan. And then maybe we could get the job, alongwith resources provided by IBM! That sounds so cool! You can read about Equinox here.

The toilets!

Doing blog-hopping the other day, I came across this indeed very informative piece on the toilets/bathrooms of US. Getting ready for a study-life abroad, I find that pretty disgusting [ofcourse the toilets, not the blog]. I guess I am just in mad love with my own bathroom. I feel really at home there[?!] I know I am odd, but that's how I am. What I just meant to say was that I could do whatever I want there, and not feel embarassed/out of place/odd. It provides me with the perfect solitude, to read newspaper, solve the crossword, finish those novels, play with my cellphone, solve the assignment, ponder over the next exploit, in short, whatever it is, I can do it in the bathroom. And yeah dont think that I am queer. Yet I think I should put up the picture of my bathroom up! [Lol! Just a thought!] You can read Jon's blog here.
