Time 1400hrs, Location: MS724

It was the Last lab for the semester and there were pending reports, graphs, readings and viva, all to be accounted for in the next four hours. A painful job but which had to be done at all costs. The printer never got to rest and neither did we. And at the end of the day every one made it!

Hmm wait… that doesn’t make any sense. Does it? Let me go through that again…

Time 1400hrs, Location: MS724

It was the Last lab for the semester and there were pending reports, edited graphs, modded readings and viva, all to be accounted for in the next four hours. An easy job yet painful when doing it but had to be done at all costs. The printer never got any rest. And luckily at the end of the day every one made it!

Quote of the Day:

Cartman: The poor kid passes it to the Jew, the Jew shoots. He misses! Proving once and for all that Jews cannot play hockey!
Kyle: Shut up Cartman! Your body is bigger than the goal!
Cartman: No, I just have a sweet hockey body.

Ah!

Whoa! Long time since the last blog! Well that’s my weakness. Lots of stuff happening, treats, farewells age2x tourneys, websites, repairing websites, playing god with paper, treats, farewells and more…

The semester is coming to an end! That means…. Majors! Everyone starts getting high on mugging again and I can’t stand people complaining about how less they have mugged. I can’t seem to understand the psychology of people here; they mug all night and still are jealous even if others just touch a book. Oh well, I guess I have to ignore that and just go on with my ‘studies’ (ROFL!)

Under pressure from ‘Attila the Hun’ and for my own thirst for being an Admin for an international clan site, I started working on a site for our Age of Empires Clan, called ‘theHNClan’ here http://www.thehnclan.tk . As I am a huge phpbb fan, I used IntegraMOD for the site and it turned out extremely well as you can see on the site.

And finally I am an admin for an international site :D. I recently defeated ‘Attila the Hun’ in a match, and now he’s all like “I want REVENGE”, what he doesn’t seem to get it is that I just don’t care. He seems so violated by that defeat. (make sure you check out www.thehnclan.tk for his rants :)) )

Ah, coming to the ‘big’ events, there is nothing like a treat in a high class restaurant. The outgoing batch of 2001 were kind and generous enough to give us a treat in Waves, where were able to “order whatever we wanted”, which later proved very costly for them, hehe, the total bill came out to around 11k!!!! for 30-odd people. It seemed no one was satisfied with that and then after a week or two (4 days ago) the 3rd yearites planned a farewell for the to-be pass-outs, this time it was a restaurant near the India Gate, then after the dinner it was “kheench” time, everyone of the seniors had to tell their experiences in IITD, Saran started… and then the guard there kicked us out coz it was 11pm and no was allowed to stay there after 11pm. Good for us. >:)

Here are some pics from the parties.

Quote of the Day:

Cartman: Now stop wasting Mel Gibson’s time, you little pussy prick.
Stan: Don’t take that tone with me, kid. I’ll kick your ass.
Cartman: Yah. Well, I’d like to see you try. I’m, like, 6 feet tall.
Stan: Yah. Well, you sound like a little bitch to me.
Cartman: Bitch! Don’t call me bitch, bitch!
Stan: Bring it on then, bitch!
Cartman: I already brung it, bitch. I brung it, opened it, and set it on the table, bitch.
Stan: Cartman?!

Creative or Altec Lansing?

Creative PCWorks LX520. Well… they are now mine! mine! my precious! Bought them at Nehru Place, along with a new mouse and some DVD-Rs. Kind of a shopping spree. Had to buy the new ones coz I literally had to blow air into the old one’s volume control just to increase the volume and also there was no stereo effect. 😀

The new speakers made Marilyn-Manson sound really good, as a result I have been listening to his/their (Don’t know whether it’s a band or a single person) music for the past 4hrs. Death metal and Rock sound great on surround sound systems.

The new mouse has really improved my quaking. I was finally able to beat the Spiterbot at level 50 in ztn3tourney1. Quaking in surround sound has also helped in multiplayer games.

As for the DVD-Rs, I used them to empty 80GB on my HDDs, Though its just 20% of the total space, I can use that space for downloading for the next 2 weeks.

I finally finished my 1st “Online Lab Report”, (well not exactly an online report but I decided to call it “Online” coz I didn’t write a single letter, pen on paper I mean). 3 pages in word, 14 graphs and 7 excel sheets of readings. It took me 4 solid hours. The lab people recently started accepting printed reports (my area of expertise). Hope I do well in the viva.

And finally I finished the entire Malcolm in the Middle series, all the six seasons including the latest episodes. It was fun while it lasted. I have to find a new series now. Just so you know the series I am up to date are…

1. South Park

2. Friends


3. Titus


4. Malcolm in the Middle


5. Coupling


Quote of the Day:

Stan: Hey, Cartman, what does “Fingerbang” mean anyways?!
Cartman: I heard it on HBO! It means, like y’know, when you pretend to use your finger like a gun or something!
Kenny: {Mumbles}
Stan: Kenny says that’s not what it means!
Cartman: Okay, Kenny! What does “Fingerbang” mean then?!
Kenny: {Mumbles}
Cartman: WHAT?! WHO THE HELL WOULD DO THAT?! JESUS CHRIST! GROW UP, KENNY! WOULD YOU?! Alright, boys! Let’s do it from the top! ONE, TWO, THREE, FOUR…!

P-Day

Knock knock,
“kaun hai yaar”
“oye vote dene aajana paanch baje”
“theek hai”
“kya kar raha hai”
“so raha hun yaar, aajaunga”
“chal bhoolna mat”
“haan haan”
“zzzzzzzzzz”

P-Day!! Poltu Day! The day finally arrived. Full scale poltu this year, far worse and confusing than I expected. One guy comes in and hints you one set, another, a completely different set. Strangely though, our dept. (EP) took keen interest in poltu this year and bagged 3 major posts, Mess, Maintenance and Computer Room Secy! Even after so much poltu, the results came up as all expected. The best parts of this are the Treats. As soon as the results were announced junta was literally was piling up on the winners for the treats, as a result we are were presented with loads and load of Pizzas, Drinks and Snacks.

Leaving this aside, I have broken my own record of being awake for the longest time, 46 Hours, my previous record being 42h. I am in the 47th hour right now and since I am going to sleep now, I don’t think I should count this hour. 46h doesn’t look impressive when considering I slept for only 8 hrs and was awake for 64 hrs. All this because of a stupid lab of ours, messed up my sleep cycle and had to make space for the lab.

When I was at the CSC today a friend of mine introduced me to a MMORPG, Kings of Chaos, and said it was just like Age of Empires but it was all web-based. erm. These kinds of games are not for me! Then I stumbled upon A3 India, an interesting game, it’s worth a try and also it’s free.

Comedy central aired the new South Park episode 904-Best friends forever. I must say, it was the best episode so far in the season. All the others weren’t that good, Carman trying to get rid of Hippies was fun but not as fun as Hell vs Heaven and where “Kenny is basically Keanu Reaves” of heaven. This episode also had a thing on Terri Schiavo, not in a mocking kind of a way but showing how people and media make things worse.

/me gets ready to Hibernate.
