I'm zealously evangelizing membership of our BIT group. People seem to be clueless about the procedure.
Granted Gmail accounts to Saurabh and Ashwin.
Everyone seems to be getting enamored by Wikipedia!

Way to go!

Our lab quiz was postponed for the second time due to a strike.
Politics is the occupation of the unoccupied!

Abhishek

Called up Abhishek in Jampot. The bugger is tying the nuptial knot on the 27th.
I was shocked to learn that Balraj is now a divorcee.
Sudip met with a similar fate. His case was apparently more vitriolic.
Making last minute preparations to abdicate this place. Shifts are a bit unnerving for me.
Samir visits.
Finalizing contact with TataTechnologies.

Addicted...once again!

This time, it's Wikipedia. Here's the deal: I intend to be a lifelong contributor to it.
Wikis had me perplexed for a long while, and in some ways they still are pretty enigmatic. But they are very much like blogs, really!
Wikipedia is the best manifestation of wikis.

Contribution

I'm now a contributor to Wikipedia!

Diwali

This was most certainly our last Diwali in Ranchi. So we celebrated with fireworks! Had a feast. Lots of visitors. Very memorable. Gr8 day!

Getting archived

Why has WayBack Machine forgotten my site? After archiving my blog for a few times in 2001, it conveniently proceeded to forget me! Yesterday, I submitted my URL for archiving. I'm keeping my fingers crossed!

Wikipedia

Wikipedia is my discovery of the year!
My left arm still hurts. I hope the pain doesn't become chronic.

What A Wonderful World

I'm currently listening to a song with the same title...and I can't help agreeing with Louis Armstrong.
I heard exactly the same song a little earlier today, although it was sung by someone else.
Santosh is uploading his photos en masse.

Coincidence

Isn't it funny that Gulmohar High School, Jadavpur University and BIT,Mesra are all celebrating their Golden Jubilees in the same year? I am an alumnus of Gulmohar and BIT Mesra. Jadavpur Univ is just a stone's throw away from my parent's place!

Sameer is too temperamental. Even the most frivelous of things can throw him off gear!
My towel is in shreds.
We placed guys are throwing a party on the 15th of December. We have to fish out Rs300/- each.
Had a chat with Arindam. He is one of the few friends from Pune I'm still in touch with. I miss the halcyon years!
Music is the best company one can keep in solitude. Yahoo! Radio is doing a fine job towards this end. I fear getting addicted to it!

Finale!

It's for the very last time that I'm accessing the net via the BIT lab.
What a harrowing experience it has been for all these years!
Here's what surprised me: We now access the web via IE 6. I was sick and tired of version 5, since many sites were off-limits.
We actually manage to change...sometimes!

Dida

I'm really worried for Dida. She's in a nursing home. Hope she has a speedy recovery.

Upset Tummy

Reclining is in vogue, at least for me. Dare I be vertical, out seeps you-know-what from the exit!

Gurdas in Nainital circa 2k.
One of the naughtiest of my batchmates in Gulmohar School, this fellow has made it big in life. He was a baby-faced guy back in school, but now he has turned into a turbanated and bearded fellow. This image is a shocker of sorts for me!

Railway Station in Jamshedpur.
Back from Kolkata after DP.
Sprained my arm in the bus.
