After six, there is seven. After Sivaji, there is heaven

If Sachin hits, it’s a sixer. If Sivaji hits, it’s a stretcher

If you cross Chittoor, there’s Katpadi. If you cross Sivaji, there’s a dead body” (Say it with a Tamilian accent :-))

Got any more of these??

Work Avoidance

I tend to blog when I can see too much work coming my way.

I want to run… but there’s no place to hide. The next few weeks are going to be hell 😦

Food Courts – Fighting for chairs

leave a comment »

Yep… “Fighting for Chairs” is another name of the game that people usually call “Food Courts”. I suddenly see too many of them nowadays. In malls, in big restaurants like Haldiram’s and small road-side restaurants. When road-side temporary establishments do this, I’m fine with it. But when these moneyed chains do it, it sickens me. They charge the same as everyone else or more. And they let in as many people as can enter in their obscenely huge shops with very few chairs and tables. It’s totally up to the people to fight for them or eat while balancing their food on one hand. Perhaps the only differentiating factor from the road-side vendors are that they give you air-conditioning. But then the road-side food tastes better 🙂

Lots of events seem to give me the impression that I am a little too weird. And when I see so many people happily jostling for standing space in a super over-crowded Haldiram’s, I get a little more sure that there might be something wrong with me. But I will be what I am. When it comes to dining out, it is restaurants that direct me to a proper table, or a road-side vendor. Fighting for food and tables and chairs are not for me.

Though my gut feeling says that food courts are the future… with the amount of profit these guys must make while having almost no costs in managing customers. Once you set up a food court kind of joint, it just raking in the moolah all the time 😦 I gotta learn how to cook.

A new way to increase ad revenue?

leave a comment »

I’ve subscribed to “Cricket Zone with Krish Srikkanth” recently in Bloglines. I got the link from Amit Agarwal’s blog. However, I see an interesting thing happening. The feed that is displayed on Bloglines misses random words from the post. And this happens with each post. So even though I can see most of the posts, I have to browse over to the post on the original website to read it properly!

I’m wondering if this is some new strategy being tested by Google to increase ad revenue from Blogger blogs. Well, it isn’t working that well I think. Because I’m pissed off, and I’ll unsubscribe if the next post doesn’t read properly from my feed reader.

Who created men?

with one comment

If God created women… I wonder who created men. Because if God had created both of us, we’d all be brothers and sisters! I don’t like that!!

I’m hoping it was a guy in a galaxy far far away… maybe we men are all descendants of Darth Vader 😛

May the force be with us 😀

WordWeb Free License Terms

with 25 comments

I just installed the latest WordWeb Free Version. I never read license terms, but for some reason I did today. This is what stood out:

You may use the program free of charge indefinitely only if

  • You take at most 4 flights (2 return flights) in any 12 month period
  • AND you do not own or regularly drive an SUV (sports utility vehicle).

I was stumped 🙂 Read the complete license at http://wordweb.info/free/licence.html.

It’s nice to see software spreading awareness about global warming.
