Karthikeyan to race in F1 circuit

It was in the offing for a long time. The whole country believed that if there was one Indian who could make it to the high profile glamorous world of F1, it had to be Narain Karthikeyan, dubbed as the fastest Indian in the world. But with opportunities to test drive for various F1 cars over the years still not translating into him being the First Indian on the F1 circuit, even the most ardent of his fans had given up hopes.

However with news coming today of narain having agreed in principle, to race for the Jordan F1 team in the 2005 season, Narain has seen his dream of becoming India's first F1 driver become a reality. And the whole lot of F1 fans in India are now looking up at their icon to take on the likes of world champion Michael Schumacher and Barrichello and Button in his new Jordan.

So what if we couldn't have an F1 circuit in India, we now have an Indian in the F1 circuit.

Startups for a stronger Resume?

When the whole web is abuzz with keywords such as Ajax, Web 2.0, Meebo and all, there is some uncertainity about how this new Internet Bubble will shape up.

Mike at Techdirt writes that some of these new startups may be only to actually stand out for the crowd and act as a strong resume.

While the complaint is that so many of these companies are built to flip rather than to be sustainable businesses, some are noticing that this process is really just a better way for some to stand out and get a job. You build a company quickly and cheaply that gets some attention, and a bigger company comes along to scoop up your company, giving you a nice "signing bonus." In effect, the purpose of these companies is to act as a strong resume to stand out from the crowd.

Pottermania

I'll have to admit that the nature of Pottermania is beyond my comprehension capabilities! As more and more fans of all ages and countries immerse themselves in Harry’s adventures, adding fuel to the belief that Pottermania is inescapable, I am purely and simply baffled by its ability to appeal to all ages.

Bored by the inactivity prevailing in this muggle world, I began to read the first one of the series and immediately concluded that reading beyond the tenth leaf was something impossible. Undeterred, I watched the first movie. I Hated it. But with the evil-wizard becoming apple of more and more eyes with every passing moment, around the world, it could only have been something wrong with me and so I watched the second movie. And then it became so easy to establish that I loathed the Potter Kid!

Just a passing thought - "Would it be a bad idea for a Potter special appearance in Oliver Twist? The poor kid could do with some wizardry."

Gmail Chat Disabled

The fact that it happened does not surprise me but that it took so long for our network administrators to figure it out does.

And if you are wondering how do you disable Gmail's chat features on your network, you only need locking DNS lookups to chatenabled.mail.google.com, by returning 127.0.0.1.
