Techtree Newsletters

Techtree newsletter

Oh, red-and-white Techtree. This is so ridiculous. I understand you’ve got automated newsletters & mailing lists at work here. But when you are forwarding your super exclusive daily newsletter to thousands of real users, the least you can do is take the pains of going through it once. Don’t just forward updates for the sake of sending newsletters daily.

You don’t have control over what junk some people post in the form of comments. Agreed. That answers why the site is filled with hilarious and off-topic comments left, right and centre. How about some moderation in what you send to thousands of inbox? Some of us are mortals who do go through the newsletters. After all, that’s one (somewhat) ad-free way to get the contents of your website.

Two Down; Four More To Go

Monday, November 19th, 2007

Sucks when you have a huge break between the exams. The only good they do is let you relax and tell you that there’s still enough time left to study. But right now, I just wanna go through these exams, put them behind me and move on.

Good thing, the next batch of exams are back to back.

100 and 10 Indian Rupees Coin

Saturday, November 17th, 2007

This one goes out to my long-lost school pals. All those suckers who thought I was kidding about these ‘special coins’ which were kept in a secret stash at my home. I may have gone a bit overboard with the stash thing but well…these are special right?

So, for those who’ve not been fortunate enough to see the 100 and 10 Rupees coins, watch these pics closely!

That’s right, 1982. To cross-check, refer the wiki entry.

Sodding Examinations

Sunday, November 11th, 2007

This time I’ve been caught napping. Usually my calculations concerning the exams, the preparation required, time at hand, etc… are very good. When you study everything at the last moment, you gotta have that. Now, all thanks to Diwali celebrations, the days leading up to it and those during the actual festival, were wasted cleaning my room, attending to guests, poojas, and all other stuff you’d associate with Diwali.

But now, Diwali is just about to end and the very next day my seventh semester exams begin. So, I have to get out of the festive mood and get in to the serious examination mode for cramming/rapid reading/visual reproduction or all of those. And that has to happen right NOW! It’s 00:25 on Sunday. The first test starts in a day. This is usually the time when i say to myself: the next sem would be different, I will not keep things for the final day, I will try to get the same marks with minimum efforts and so on. But I guess no time to do that either. Unleashing these feelings on a personal blog can do a lot of good to your mental state and that is what I’m banking on right now.

See ya guys sometime later.
