Yes I'm alive!

It’s been  a while hasn’t it, since I last blogged ? *goes to next tab to check last manual blog post* April 19. God! Hadn’t realized its been so long since I last composed. Yes, I’m alive (hey you’re reading this aren’t ya?). I can hear the collective yells of “where the hell have you been”. Well – work. Been drowned, swamped, overloaded – basically been busy with shit loads of work.

Next question – Am I in Austin ?

I travelled time!
on 10/03/2009 - like it?

hehe now that got your attention didn’t it? :P Well I didn’t _actually_ travel time, just that effective yesterday, Daylight savings is in effect. Which means the states/countries following Daylight Savings set their time ahead by 1 hour. On Sunday, March 8 there were only 23 hours a day (at 2 AM the clocks were set to 3AM) so effectively I travelled ahead in time by an hour :D

3 Months… And More to Come!
on 24/02/2009 - like it?

Its been a while since I’ve posted (crap nearly a month) on my blog – so what have I been upto and what’s happening ?
For starters, work, work, work, more work – did I mention work ? There’s just 2 people here in Austin for the project I’m with and as we hit the project go live date, there’s tons of work to be doing – and the 2 of us are just about struggling. My colleague being the Business Analyst & Implementer -means that he’s got to report to his managers about what’s going on and and analysis of bug reports, calls resolved etc. That leaves him busy – and leaves me with a frikkin’ huge set of things to do – test the test conditions in advance and report any bugs found.

"Hi I'm SJ"
on 13/12/2008 - like it?

You know very few people know my full name. Most people call me as “Sathya”, my twittter friends “SathyaBhat”. Mainly that’d would because I’ve never mentioned it – not because of “privacy reasons” or I have a name which would cause certain problems – its just that it’s sorta too long – I mean who wouldn’t prefer calling “Sathya” to “Sathyajith Bhat?”.

Now that I’m here in US – I’ve had to further shorten my name. I mean I didn’t expect people to pronounce “Sathyajith” (trust me they tried, tried and were like “Saaa– I give up??” ). Well people have had problems calling my shortened name “Sathya” – I mean here they ask your name for everything – whenever you other something at the restaurant etc,  and everytime I say “Sathya” people would be like “pardon me?”. So from Sathyajith Bhat to Sathyajith to SathyaBhat to Sathya – now its SJ.

My Black Friday Purchases
on 04/12/2008 - like it?

“Black Friday” in US is the day after Thanksgiving day. On this single day you get the best deals – flat discounts, and unbelievable prices. There’s a catch though, the best deals are available real early – I mean as early 5 AM – people are known to camp the night out just to grab them. While my colleague and me went to the mall relatively late at 7:30 I still got some nice deals.

Layoffs galore
on 17/10/2008 - like it?

SInce the past couple of days, I’ve been reading lot of email forwards regarding X or Y Company laying off Z people, and frankly it never really bothered me much – mainly because the forwards aren’t that reliable.

But then today, that whole thing of a layoff really hit me.
