Liar Liar!!!

Posted on July 13, 2008. Filed under: fun |

I happened to meet one of my seniors at school and miserably,a family frd of mine. On the outer, I know that he did a MBA at one of the engg colleges here in Chennai.

(Dont wanna reveal his identity. so, He’s marked as ‘X’)

Me: Hi.. What’s up?

X: Nothin much dude. Just gonna write my GRE exam.

Me: GRE after MBA.. sounds you’re gonna be an All hands person.

( after a month or so)

Me: Have you taken your GRE?

X: Yeah!!! Yesterday..

Me: Score?

X: Results not yet announced.

( I kept myself quiet. I don’t wanna end this here 😀 )

( 15 days later…)

Me: Is your results still not announced?

X: Yeah.. I got it man and I passed it. Score is 932/1600

(if you’re not aware, GRE scores will be a multiple of 10)

Me: ?????

Why did he choose to lie that he’s gonna take GRE or something( atleast he could have lied in things which he knows to some extent)?. You can lie but atleast make it to be a believeable one 🙂

Math-O-Song!!!

Posted on March 8, 2008. Filed under: Education, fun, funny, maths |

When I was feeling a lil’ bored, I came across this video which was a real treat to hear. A cool way to learn something, I suppose.

Done by Math grads of NorthWestern University.

If you still can’t understand the funny part of it, Here’s the lyrics for you..
Finite Simple Group (of Order Two)
The Klein Four Group

The path of love is never smooth
But mine’s continuous for you
You’re the upper bound in the chains of my heart
You’re my Axiom of Choice, you know it’s true

But lately our relation’s not so well-defined
And I just can’t function without you
I’ll prove my proposition and I’m sure you’ll find
We’re a finite simple group of order two

I’m losing my identity
I’m getting tensor every day
And without loss of generality
I will assume that you feel the same way

Since every time I see you, you just quotient out
The faithful image that I map into
But when we’re one-to-one you’ll see what I’m about
‘Cause we’re a finite simple group of order two

Our equivalence was stable,
A principal love bundle sitting deep inside
But then you drove a wedge between our two-forms
Now everything is so complexified

When we first met, we simply-connected
My heart was open but too dense
Our system was already directed
To have a finite limit, in some sense

I’m living in the kernel of a rank-one map
From my domain, its image looks so blue,
‘Cause all I see are zeroes, it’s a cruel trap
But we’re a finite simple group of order two

I’m not the smoothest operator in my class,
But we’re a mirror pair, me and you,
So let’s apply forgetful functors to the past
And be a finite simple group, a finite simple group,
Let’s be a finite simple group of order two

I’ve proved my proposition now, as you can see,
So let’s both be associative and free
And by corollary, this shows you and I to be
Purely inseparable. Q. E. D.

Our first business- A sloppy start :-)

Posted on February 21, 2008. Filed under: fun, humor, Internet, personal |

Arun Vijay and I were planning to launch a website “ChennaiRobotics.com” and also Arun was personally int’d in setting up a new firm for robotics which will be called in the near future as “Robonics”. So, it urges us to buy two new domains.

Yesterday, Arun messaged to call me for buying these two domains with another additional domain for Arun’s frd. It was already close to 8PM but luckily for me, Arun was kind enough to bring his bike to pick me up from my house. As there wasn’t any such facility available( to buy a domain) in our neighbourhood, we had to go all the way to Anna nagar( 15 kms from my residence).

After collecting all the money I possessed at that time(nearly 300Rs and Arun had some 700 Rs), we felt that it was quite enough to buy atleast 3 domains. We reached there at 8.45 PM. Later,we came to know that we’re running short of 100 Rs. We somehow managed to bring that remaining money.

To describe about the office, it is an internet domain selling turned Internet cafe. Atleast 20 computers for customers to browse thro’ internet and watch their favourite porn star 😀 . We went in and was filling up some online forms. It takes a while to do these stuffs as it’s a 3 domain purchasal.

During our domain registration, we were talking about our next step ie Web hosting. It requires some funding as we’ve nothing but an empty wallet.

In the meanwhile, there was a guy next to us who has finished his web browsing(Not sure what he was doing :D) and about to settle his bill. He was more like a student(Our first impression when we saw him).After paying his bill, he was asking them if they can do a web page for him. Though it was web designing company, those two fellas at the counter said “No, we don’t do web designing”. I wonder, why they said that but it was good for us.
Arun citing some real opportunity to make  some real money, urged me to say him that we’re ready to do that. I kinda hesitated at first but after realising that we desperately need some money and got myself prepared to ask him.

Me: Hello Sir! We actually do some professional web designing. If you’re int’d we can do that for ya.

That guy: If so, I’d be pleased..

Me: BTW,What’s this website for?

That guy: For a College Symposium actually… Which company do ya belong to?

Me: We( after a huge pause) not actually from a company but we’re college students. I’m doing my final year in ‘so and so’ college and Arun from another college.

That guy(with some change in his facial expression) : Oh! I see..Hey! you from that college? Is ‘X’ ( not revealing some names for personal reasons) your HOD(Head of the Department)?

Me(I was stumped)😦with some disappointment mixed with shock, I nodded my head) BTW, Who’re you?

That guy: I’m the HOD of ‘so and so’ college(Not my college,it was another college) of IT dept.

Me:( was just thinking,”Gees! I’m gonna end up in trouble”) So, your students could have done this site for ya?

HOD: They did but I didn’t like it..

Me: Okie.. Send us an email about all information which must be in that site. Moreover, Do ya have the domain name? and Also, you can do web hosting by yourself?

HOD: Domain??? I don’t need that.. I want only website. Why do I need a domain name for a website?

Me:( was wondering, ” How the hell did he became an HOD?” and was telling myself, ” I can became an HOD too as it must be an easy job to do as even this fella can do that”) .

Me: we’ll give the web page only and it’s your job to host that site.

HOD: Okie.. fine

Me: Ok.. I’ll call ya tomorrow where we can discuss about the pricing and related matters.

…We were on our way to home and our ride was filled with some serious conversation about the web site price. We were making sure that we must fix a price which he can afford and also gives us money for our web hosting.

After even reaching home, we were chatting about web design and type of pages that we must have and also, made a catalog to tell him.

We called him the next da ans was hit by a shocker. He replied that he’s going with his students design and not int’d in working with us. Our First business officially turned down.

Lesson: Never tell the truth that you’re a student when you’re approaching for a business deal. If you did, you’ll end up like us.

Trying out new things…

Posted on December 8, 2007. Filed under: Education, fun, personal |

Well, I’m in my last stage of my college life. Yeah, I’m on a vacation for doing a project work. Sounds a bit hectic days but it’s not as uncomfortable as it may sound. I’m really enjoying my vacation.

Not to mention, Our project works( most of engineering colleges here in India) lead us to something that’s certainly far from innovative and the worse part of it is “We ourselves don’t actually use the softwares we make” . So, That relieves me from the pressure of using my brain(made me think if i had got one in recent days 😀 )

So, Off from project works, that would naturally mean I’ve enough time to spend on different things.

Well, I started off with watching some documentaries on Linux and the one that most impressed me is “Revolution OS” . Though, it sounded more like1<->1 interview type but it certainly highlighted the foundation of Linux and Free software foundation. From this documentary, I mean, the things gained from this video. I began to search for a few more details from Open Source projects( Sadly, I’ve partnered many of these projects but never really understood the basics of Open source and How to’s).

It led me to some of the proposals of ESR( Eric StevenRaymond). His most popular papers are “The Cathedral and the Bazaar” and ” How to become a Hacker“. Impressed by the rules of Hackers et al.

After knowing ESR’s favourite language to be Python . I got a desire towards that particular language(but in most colleges in my neighbourhood, They preach C,C++, Java as the Gods of Programming Languages). But worse things about python is there ain’t any proper tutorial provided online for novice or beginners like me(I can find books only for the Pro). After some hard googling, I finally found a simple guide for Python. Python is a simple and a powerful from what I’ve learnt so far. Unlike Perl, it even fits into large coding applications.

Will keep you guys updated more on python. Until then, Keep Hacking!!!

prabhu- “The next Linus Torvalds”

Posted on October 13, 2007. Filed under: fun, personal |

…This incident dates back to a few months when Wipro came to our college to conduct an interview. I can find tension and fear creeping thro’ everyone’s face(Maybe, they are really int’d in joining wipro). Apps was over and results are out which really brought a broad smile in prabhu’s face. Next is Technical round and with some last minute rushes into some books which he felt as important for the next round..
Prabhu was called in for his interview and he casually walks in..

Wipro Hr: Hello Mr.prabhu! plz take your seat..

pambi: Thank you, Sir!

(Expecting for some hard technical questions to shoot right in his direction and awaits eagerly to tackle it)

Hr: Well prabhu, Lets go straight in. Can you just draw an OS design in this sheet of paper?

prabhu( with ears turning red) takes the paper and stares at it for sometime. All of a sudden, He comes up with a design(A new OS is born) and he scribbles quickly. And gives it to him with some pride and a sense of fulfillment.

Hr: I’m unimpressed, prabhu!

prabhu(thinks “Maybe, he doesn’t understand the complexity of my OS“)

Hr: So, prabhu. I’m sorry to say.. ” You are not selected”.

comic-p.jpg

Well, That’s not all, folks! I hereby give you the design of a new OS which prabhu had it as a secret for over 6 months( prabhu! Dont thank me.. it’s my job)

OS Design:

And That’s how an OS must be designed…
