Ganapati Bappa Morya!
Its almost 20 days since my netÂ isÂ down – yes! from the great Tata Indicom Broadband! The customer care is pathetic who just sweet talk to solve the problem. Anyways, I wont whine upon it again.
The number of hits I get from fellow Tata Indicom Broadband users to my blog here are endless. Everyone seems to be more frustrated and hopeless than I am. So I just decided to tinker with the idea of possibly a site to let the tata executives know that the service they provice is downright pathetic and what an average subscriber of their service thinks about them. Out of curiousity, I checked out the whois records of websites to verify for the availabilityÂ ofÂ aÂ niceÂ domain. What could be better than www.tatasucks.com ? and Guess what its owned by someone related with Tata since 1999. Awesome! Probably it was one of their long term plans which they have finally fulfilled. Check the whois records of the same here
How about a www.tatacrapband.com ? :p
I am posting this just to show the contrast to what has been happening in my life. Whatever I have tried to do over the last week, has all just gone wrong. I wont like to crib about them over and over again.
When luck is your way, this is what happens. A beautiful outswinger by a West Indian bowler to Sreesanth, batmans misses and just check how closely the ball wizzes by the stumps. Hell just check the snicko deflections! Anyways that is just about it, have nothing else to do right now. As I can see Sreesanth and Anil Kumble play the quicks a lot better than the top order batsmen. I am sure Anil Kumble would score more runs than most of our top order batsmen. I just hope he gets selected in the World Cup 2007 Squad if we have to come anywhere near to win the World Cup in West Indies.
Just some random thoughts.
The blog is nearing the one year milestone. So has my laptop. It was exactly one year before I had got my laptop after being frustrated from the power fluctuations. I think it was one of my better decisions to use the laptop as a full fledged PC. I dont have any plans to work on a desktop system ever again.
Now that the laptop is one year old, it also means the end of the warranty period. It is surely not a good feeling to own a thing whose repairs can get quite costly if things go wrong. Luckily enough I have not faced any problems so far and managed to avoid any visits to the service center. And I only hope I never have to do that.
Over the year, blogging has been fun. Mostly it has been about the boring things going on in life, sharing things which I found cool and some not so cool, and ranting about things when they go wrong badly. That just sums it up and I wonder where would the blog lead to in the coming year.
