Preshit had introduced me to twitter a while ago, but I’d never bothered to check it(don’t ask me why). Seeing twitter updates on Preshit’s blog, I thought I’d give it a try. After trying it out, I’m cursong myself — for not having tried it earlier! In case you guys are wondering, twitter uses the concept of microblogging, where you send short updates of upto 140 characters(or “tweets”) to Twitter’s website, via SMS, using IM(only Jabber-based protocols like GTalk are supported at the moment).
Well in my previous post I’d posted that my room was “visited” by cops. Few people had even suggested reasons: Drugs, porn, while my assumption was that it was because of hookers. Well I got the update from the Guest House manager, and nope. It wasn’t for drugs. Not for porn. Not for hookers. Not for piracy either. The reason? THIS. 😐 Apparently there was a tipoff that Mr. Modi would be killed and that his assassins were already in Chennai.
Well there are somethings which I thought I’d never see. Now as I’ve seen it all(ok, almost all!) The setting: Yesterday night/today early morning The time: 2:00 AM The Place: Cristal Guest House, Chennai, the guest house where I stay. I was sleeping blissfully, having a good night’s sleep. Then all of a sudden, I hear a faint buzz. Thought that was just me dreaming. Then, BUZZ again. And then the door starts banging.
I’ve been posting on Tech2 forums for over 8 months now(strictly speaking according to my join date, it’s been more than a year but I was active from April onwards) & I’ve made some good friends with fellow techies. I always wished to meet up with them. Last month, my wish came true. You see, Reetesh(another Moderator at tech2) had informed me couple of days ago that he’ll be on a trip to Tirupathi and will not be online.
That’s how long I’ve been in Chennai, working for 3i Infotech. I can’t believe that 6 months have gone by so fast. I still remember the days after I’d given my interview for the job at 3i, checking mails every hour after the prescribed day(ie, a week after the interview) to check for status on whether I’ve been selected or not. On the D-Day(it was a Saturday), I was pretty ecstatic to know that I’ve been selected for the job(My Mom told me I yelled out so loud she thought I received an electric-shock!

No, this post has got nothing to do with the song “Here I Go Again” by Whitesnake(great track by the way!). This post deals with my third(!!) attempt at blogging(yup, that’s right right third!). My first attempt was through BlogSpot-I just signed up, that was it I guess(I think I made a post-hell I don’t even remember the site URL. That died out real soon! With my second attempt, I was lot more determined.
Well it’s all over. Finally. The moment I’ve been waiting for, since 4 years. What am I talking about?? I’m done with writing exams, that’s what! 4 freakin' years of writing the same ol' mind numbing exams. No more worrying about Mr. Fourier, Laplace, Heaviside’s transforms(which transform my mind into total madness), no more worrying about noise, in terms of Gaussian, Random, Impulse or Percentage, Decibel or otherwise. No more of Erlang’s trunking thoery, Queueing systems.
