Why are we not using Linux?

When we have free will, why not use a free operating system?

Hello everyone!

It has been a while since I have written here but I promise to be regular from now on. Something that has been disturbing me since quite some time is - Why are we not using Linux? Considering the advantages for geeks as well as non-geeks, Linux should be at a preference over the traditionally popular propreitary operating systems.

I personally have been a Linux user since quite some time now, even though I was not comfortable with the command line interface. I used KDE then and use GNOME now. Most people are still living in the misconception that Linux simply means a command driven shell. This is absolutely wrong! Linux is not even that. Linux, technically speaking is the kernel. The core. You cannot see Linux at work. What you see is only an interface, command line or GUI. A user is not meant to see the operating system anyways. He only sees Applications.

Funny pic - Floppies as coasters!

Ironical, isn't it. Something we payed a lot for in the past is a coaster today. Just like people buying a treadmill, which becomes a sort of stand to dry clothes on.



This is a pic from our office. Floppies actually make for the best coasters.

The world is weird, so are the flash-drives!

This is the weirdest flash drive ever! My question - "Are you gonna eat that?"




I am just laughing my ass off!

The Heart Of A Goof

"The Heart of a Goof" was actually a collection of short stories written by the famous P.G. Wodehouse. With due respect to his work, I'd like to present my own short story very similar to his in essence but very different in nature. This is about an engineering student, who also happens to be my very good friend (name withheld for obvious reasons). Let's just call my friend - P (I would use 'X' but it's too cool to use on him ;)).

P is alright otherwise but when it comes to commitments and relationships, the "Goof" comes into the picture! So, what is a 'goof' anyways? Lexically speaking, it means - An incompetent, foolish, or stupid
person.

Heart of a Goof

So, P unfortunately (fortunately for us though), has a major crush on a girl in his batch, let's just call her Q. Somehow he gets her number or to be precise, steals it from a friend's phone. That's alright unless you use it, right? So, he called me up and asked me what to do. I simply told him to not use it. It isn't cool to do this (why I feel this is a long story, but I will cut it short for you. I messaged a girl,

Can I make "FRANDSHEEP" to you..? ....Piss off freak!

Please take some time and ask yourself about what the Internet is primarily used for today? Reference..? Ok, look for a better answer.. Downloading..? Even better.. Communication..? Getting hot.. try more.. Social Networking..? BINGO! In the past few years, apart from pornography, the most of the Internet browsing traffic is used for Social Networking websites. I mean really, face it, how many people do you know who don't have a Facebook/Orkut/Hi5/MySpace profile?

I am guessing such stuff possibly began with a geek looking for his High School crush or something. I am only guessing. Or maybe he wanted to

Left, Right and Center!

Along with many other things that I learnt, when I was in college, in Delhi, was a very interesting theory. This may relate to "Group Dynamics" or any other fancy term that I know nothing of since I am not studying Anthropology or Psychology. I call it the Left, Right and Center theory. It's not entirely mine, since, there were several people who helped me understand the whole thing.





The Left, Right and Center theory suggests that every classroom is

Karzzz - sarcasm galore!!!!!

I finally saw Karzzz with Himesh. The movie had to be the most unusual piece of cinema that anyone can watch. It took enough courage and mental strength and I doubt I could ever muster up the courage that I built ever again to see such a unique piece of cinema.

This is what makes me laugh the most. Himesh's character in the movie is Monty. How the hell can he ever be a Monty? And he is a Rockstar. Wow! This has got to be the ultimate fantasy film, surpassing the brilliance of Love Story 2050. It had it all, red lipsticks to bizzare

The best Indian Godfather remake - Sarkar! NAAH! "Zulm Ki Hukumat"

I know this is old and many people must have already written about this (best Indian remake of The Godfather), but I feel it is my sworn duty to enlighten you with my observations. I have seen The Godfather atleast 5 times by now and when retards like Mr. Ram Gopal Verma call movies like Sarkar a tribute to the great film, it is just outlandish.

Now, I know most people must have seen Sarkar. Many of you people must have actually liked it. Screw you guys who liked this piece of trash, you deserve to die and rot in creativity hell. I mean seriously, how did you even sit through the whole film? With a highly irritating Amitabh Bachchan, who seems to be as retarded as his baby boy. Don't get me wrong, I am a huge fan of Mr. Bachchan Sr., and have seen all his old movies, but lately, his health seems to be getting to him.

How The Joker influences people

The Joker from the recent Dark Knight has been a major influence in people's Google Talk status quotations, facebook quotes, etc. It also seems to have influenced my photomanipulation. I am not good at it, but I do experiment a lot.

This is a picture of my friend Joy, with a cool looking scar on the side of his lip, giving the look of the Joker himself.



And this is what I made out of it. Please comment.





I don't know about you guys, but I loved the effect on the teeth. ;-)

Employed engineers and their ample free time!

Just yesterday, I visited a major fertilizer plant in our city. We woke up early and left early to come back EARLY. The route was fantastic. There are few routes that deserve the superlative in India, and this was definitely one of them. Out of 35Km of the total distance, 20Km felt like a camel ride. My breakfast refused to digest!

Hello world!
