notworking

My internet connection was down for about 14 hours.... the hub close to my house got spoilt in the rain or something like that.
We have a paper on Networking this semester, and this is the attribute about networking that I don't like - they tend to fail too often. In my opinion, computers and nature don't really get along too well. Make the hub waterproof, make the cables triple insulated, but there's not much you can do about 2 days of rainfall and the Crow that made a hole in the connector.

On a happy note, I'm now posting through wBloggar's new beta version v3.0b (I got access to it because I designed the logo in the forums :P ) and I have one word to describe it - wahoo! - it's really cool, I tell you.

Too busy with work. I'm hardly studying. Need to reorganize, reprioritize. Sigh.

In the last 7 days,

In the last 7 days, a group of 5 knife-weilding goons robbed 4 public buses in broad daylight, killing 2. At 8 'o clock in the morning.

Today, the Howrah Rajdhani Express got derailed and fell of a bridge, and 3 of the bogies fell into the water. Over 150 feared dead.

What's happening? It's almost as if human life doesn't matter anymore.

hello world!!

Really cool news - I've finally got 24hrs internet!!

It's a shared LAN connection - not very fast, but a little better than dialup. And I can stay online for as long as I want.

I had stopped blogging because of the super duper phone bills I got - I was paying so much money that I think I'm the reason the telephone company is making profits....Since that problem is solved, I can get back to writing something everyday.

Played two straight games of

Played two straight games of n-ball today. I won the first game, tied the second. Sadly there's one new rule: The winner has to treat every one to a coke. n-ball is one hilarious game, but it's extremely tiring - I can't move at all, after today's matches.

Anyway, I'm just too tired now to type anything at all. Too much work on the idya front. I guess I've got too many things to handle at one time. I'll be off for 2-3 days now, since the parents and I are going to Gurgaon for the extended weekend. I wonder whether I will be able spend 3 days without a computer.

n-ball, anyone?

There were 4 of us playing our class's official sport, Hand-Squash today. After a few games, we got bored of it, and I thus invented n-ball.

It's basically an n-sided Football game, played with a tennis ball, the same one we use in Hand-Squash. The rules for n-ball are simple:

1) Every player has a goal that he has to defend.
2) For every ball hit into a player's goal, his points increase.
3) Whoever concedes 5 goals is eliminated from the game.

The rules were short and simple, but the match turned out to be a long, extremely fun game. Since it was a knockout game, everyone had to survive by protecting his/her goal. But if you just stood there trying to protect yourself, you could'nt attack other's goals. We had 4 people, so each player could shoot to 1 of 3 opponent goals. Like all survivor shows, we formed an alliance against one person and tried to get him out. But trust was a dangerous thing , as the person you trust could end up scoring in your goal!
