Well, I’m heading back to Austin for a second stint. Had an amazing time the last time{#aptureLink_8CR2q9PExE} I was there - was there for almost a year. Learnt a lot - technically & otherwise. Unlike last time when I had a flight from Chennai to Mumbai and then a direct Mumbai to New Jersey flight ( with a Mumbai International Airport to boot) - this time, the flight will be from Chennai.

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.

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?”.

“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.
