Thinking of restarting

I'm thinking of restarting my blog (again)..
this occured to me when i heard the news that my company synplicity is being acquired by big goliath company synopsys.(duh?)
other than this, there are lot of other reasons also.
1) nobody reads this page, so i'm free to write anything
2) (i think) i've lotta free time..i've been watching lot of movies recently..
3) my move to USofA for short/long/permanent etc depending on which angle u look at it. desi experiences and view abt india from across the oceans..
4) well, common knowledge prescribes staying away from blogs as it is worth nothing..but i'm in big time opposite mood now..

Finally i'll leave with you some point to ponder.

It became very clear to me sitting out there today that every decision I've made in my entire life has been wrong. My life is the complete opposite of everything I want it to be. Every instinct I have, in every aspect of life, be it something to wear, something to eat - it's all been wrong. - George Costanza

Watchout for my decision on this soon..before this financial year..within 4 days!!

Striking the middle ground?

Your Brain is 60% Female, 40% Male

Your brain is a healthy mix of male and female
You are both sensitive and savvy
Rational and reasonable, you tend to keep level headed
But you also tend to wear your heart on your sleeve

got it from a friend's journal here!

What Do You Tell Them?

In technology areas like electronic design automation (EDA), the complexity of explaining the career and technology are compounded by the extra level of indirection. Sanjay Bali of Magma Design Automation says he has to explain EDA in terms of the technology it enables. “I explain that we help design chips the same way GPS helps you get around in a car,” says Bali. “The GPS doesn’t transport you, and it doesn’t even do the driving. It just helps you do the job efficiently.”
More here :-)

i should think of an analogy more apt for indian context..GPS is rarely used in US itself:-( internet stock trading analogy perhaps, thats fast catching up in india :-)

scream, scream and then u run out of energy!

went to Wonderla, a new amusement park on the outskirts of's paisa vasool..lot of water rides and dry rides and we alternated between effectively we were wet throughout the day :-)

if u get a chance, make it. you'll love it!

Side effects:- head ache, body pain, fever, cold, breathing trouble etc. even after 2 days..finally got to take some sick leave :-)

Internet connection @ speed of light - Part 2 - Gods must be crazy

Believe it or not, this post is from my home broadband connection :-)

To cut longest story to long, all my attempts at reaching them proved futile..still after sometime they themselves called me and setup date/time for the connection..

but my woes wont be over so soon..i called them in the afternoon to remind them about the appt..the lineman is already out of office before lady officer comes, so no modem etc.finally i push them,plead them to give the connection today itself..finally they come around and send the modem..

but then, i'm not getting so easy..power is off so no checking the connection..they have run out of user manuals, so you dont know how to connect even if power comes later..forget it..its going to be a long shot..

surprise again, the lady calls me at 7PM(yes you read it correct..7PM..that too from home) and tells me how to do the connection and i'm here posting this blog :-)

i've still one last mile to go..they've given me wrong i've go back return this and get a different one..will that be a full stop or another chapter? Gods must be crazy!!
