March 19 1985, 05:28. Date and time a certain SJ (no, not Steve Jobs, me!) came into this world. Fast forward to March 19, 2010. Today. Yesterday. couple of days ago. 25. I’ve “officially” completed 25 years of which 22 years were spent in Mangalore, 9 months in Austin, and the remaining time in Chennai.


Back In India

Yeah, I’m back in India. Well, actually landed in Chennai long time [ damn it’s been more than a month o_0 ]. So let me recap what’s been happening and what I’ve bene upto.

First thing: the return trip. The return flight was rather uneventful, nowhere near how my flight from Mumbai to Austin was ( well, that’s a good thing).

My flight itself was rather long ( heck what do ya expect from a transcontinental flight anyway), covering 4 different flights – American Airlines from Austin to Chicago, and from Chicago to New York  and Jet Airways from New York to Brussels (stop over) and from Brussels to Chennai.

Chennai Twitter Meetup [Tweetup]

It seems with twitter everything happens instantaneously. You get instant feedback, instant replies, instant responses. And the next Chennai twitter meet was decided instantaneously. I was talking to Ashwin aka cruisemaniac regarding his day day in Italy, and he asked if I’m in Chennai. I responded in positive, and he told me he’ll be landing here and will be here till Saturday and bam! Next thing we know we decided to meetup this Saturday, and extend the invitation to fellow Chennai twitter users.

When 2 Mods Meet

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.
