Okay, I won’t quote the entire song. I was just dying to use it once after listening to it first on a CSI episode.
Getting back to the topic of this post:
Couldn’t have asked for a better day after the exams. Bunked college, slept like crazy for 10 hrs in the day. Got up, did my rounds of browsing the internet for interesting stuff and news. A very long day in that.
The India-England 6th ODI went right down to the wire. Sachin played true to his real self. Robin Utthapa somehow managed to play some cheeky shots and won the game for India. I don’t think anyone else in the Indian team would have pulled 20-odd runs from 15 balls. Not even Dhoni. So, that was some time well spent watching cricket on TV.
Between cricket and surfing, I got linked back here on sourabh.net from engadget for tipping them on a news. For the Lenovo ThinkPad Reserve Edition. Actually, I wanted to get it linked back to LaptopLogic, but the Engadget news editors had something else in mind. So, they linked the source to some PR agency. We had recieved the news directly from Lenovo (agreed to embargo). So, well, the backlink, got a lot of hits for my blog. Feels nice! But the original aim of tipping Engadget was not achieved. So, I kinda feel bad for it. It wasn’t in my hands.. so, I guess nothing can be done about it.
The Apple Special Event was a 10/10 on the excitement scale. Honestly, the most kick-ass ever within the last couple of years that I’m tracking them. Most of the stuff which were announced are some real VFM. The new 4GB Nano or the 80GB iPod classic would be my choice of PMP at the US price. Conversion in rupees when it’s launched here will make me change my decision. I know. I don’t think this will ever change. Greed, taxes or just inflation (is that the right word?)..whatever be the reason behind it.
A few days back I expressed my love for Kubrick as my personal preferred choice of WordPress theme. Out-of-nowhere, some coders have started expressing similar affection for it by rolling out modded themes similar to it. The good ones. There’s a three-column Kubrick and Kubrick with some good AJAX abilities. Will give them a try later this weekend.
So, that’s just about it. Couple of hectic days ahead at college and then the much needed weekend.
