Short Notes

And just as this hiatus comes to an end, I'd like to let all know that this was not a result of mundanity. Things were moving at quite a pace and yet, somehow didn't fall into the category of weblog content.

India finally managed to win something at Cricket. Defeating Zimbabwe by an innings and 90 runs may not be the achievement one would be envied for, but with the way our royalty (read star cricketers) have been performing, I'd say it does classify a bit into something worth getting deliriously happy for.

More Cricket. England finally finally claimed the Ashes. The whole Aussie outfit surrendered to the Flintoff-Pieterson duo in a manner none would have predicted at the beginning of the series. And while this made some ecstatic, one cant simply admire the way the Aussies threatened to turn it all around, all on the last day.

I have officially reached the conclusion that there cannot be made a movie that actually bores me.

Gates on Google:
[Google] have this slogan that they are going to organize the world's information. Our slogan is that we are going to give people tools to let them organize the world's information.
And finally, this site needs a new template. I have been thinking about it for a while now and I might just sit down and finally stop procrastinating.

I guess when you write that you're going to stop procrastinating, that's one step closer to actually not procrastinating and doing it...

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.
