My New Laptop

Site Feed in RSS 2.0 Format

For those of you innocent souls who think that RSS is a new reciepie and the "2.0" indicates the time to be set in microwave to prepare it, here's the enlightener. RSS is a Feed layout (Now, don't ask me what that means, just listen and pretend to understand) and is a more popular one at that than the default ATOM layout supported by Blogspot.Chick here to learn more about RSS. Click on the header of this post if ATOM is not your cup'o tea and you prefer good'ol fashioned RSS.

Lovely Anti Smoke Campaign

For all you puffing Chimneys out there. Check out this wonderful flash animation detailing about the HAZARDS of smoking. Believe me even if you thing that the end lesson "Smoke Kills" sucks you will love this campaign if not for anything else, for the sheer creativity of its conceptors.
Being a non-smoker and a non-Boozer myself it makes it easier to Pooh-Pooh all the "High"s that Smoking is supposed to give.
P.S : Still waiting for my new laptop to come over

Funny ATC Quotes, Peoplesoft & World renowned Blogs

funny air traffic controllers quotes: "From an unknown aircraft waiting in a very long takeoff queue: 'I'm bored!' Ground Traffic Control: 'Last aircraft transmitting, identify yourself immediately!' Unknown aircraft: 'I said I was bored, not stupid!'"
The hyperlink goes to a page having some ATC (Air Traffic Controller) quotes/Converstions which had me rolling on the floor. Have come across them for not the first time yet still it did evoke quite a magnificient effect. Do go there, especially if you are a jet setting traveller.

By the way I am on the verge of working with Peoplesoft. After the hostile takeover by ORACLE don't quite know if I should leave the comfort zone of Business Intelligence with/without due diligence. Waiting for a better sense to prevail and till that time holding on to what I have.

Came Across a publication detailing about the have/have-nots in terms of achievers in DOT.COM startups. One of the trends which have survived and thrived is that of BLOGS In fact in the 2004 Presidential elections in USAbloggers were invited along with normal press reporters from traditional media for briefings.
Some Nick Denton has been figured in one of most powerful men in US Media for his widely seen blogs : Gizmodo - the gizmo Blog, Wonkette - the Political Blog and Fleshbot - the porn Blog

I checked out one of these (guess which one ;) and found them to be quite good. For one, lemme help you with a taster for the stuff. Click Here

Nikon Small World - Gallery

Look through a Microscope.
This reminded me of the days of Scientific Temperament days when I had that uncanny urge to Question "Why & Why not".
This made me a perfect fit in the 'creatures' whose (over) inquisitiveness forces them to get behind the microscope to understand everything. Clearly a highly unsuitable candidate for IITs !

So Re-arouse that dormant temperament and Bon-Voyage on the journey of thrilling Science.

Lovely Email Lesson

Got this rather fun email lesson from the net the other day. Quite informative and I thought I would send it across to all my buddies who keep forwarding such "get rich by forwarding" chain emails. But decided to exercise restrain.

By the way gave IIFT exams today. Was siiting on the same bench with a girl who was very gorgeous., to say the least. And surprise, she was actually flirting a lot with her low neckline! Unfortunately wanted to focus more on the Qpaper, which as it is was quite an arduous one, so had to cod shoulder her. Had it been any other day I would have gone ga-ga over her!

Life is definitely not without a sense of I-R-O-N-Y
