coolage

It's been almost a month now since college started. I've become a "4th yearie" now, and along with the priviledge of being part the most senior student batch in college, comes the burden of selecting 5 electives out of a list of 11 specialized subjects. Here's what I chose:

  1. Artificial Intelligence
  2. Data Mining
  3. Advanced Internet Technology
  4. Unix Network Programming
  5. Cost Accounting and HRM

Out of these, AI and Data Mining are my two favourite subjects, and it's really cool to learn about logic, knowledge and stuff.

nutch

I found this new search engine project called Nutch via DaveNet:

Nutch is a nascent effort to implement an open-source web search engine. (It) provides a transparent alternative to commercial web search engines. Only open source search results can be fully trusted to be without bias. (Or at least their bias is public.)

IMHO, this is like finding an RSA encryption algorithm for information retrieval. While many encryption systems base themselves upon the premise that their inner algorithms are kept secret; RSA, or any other publicly described methods are strong because the actual algorithm is tough to crack.

uber-input-box

Is Google striving to become the uber-input-box? If you type in an address, the corresponding street map appears. Type in a company stock name, and it will fetch you the stock quotes. And then there's phone book and spell check; and the latest calculator facility.

I guess it's not just about document search anymore - it's about information. Whatever kind of information that may be. They want everyone on the internet to have that Google window open on their desktop, all the time. If you want to know something, type it in. Goo

some thoughts for the VHP

How is it that all colleges are closed on Raksha Bandhan while they're open on Valentine's day?

hmm

I haven't posted anything in a while, have I?

absence

To all my readers who're wondering why I post so rarely now: Sorry folks, life is a little busy. Funny thing about blogging is that when you have so many things to write about, you don't have the time to write them.

rabbit!

Cut arnab into neat joints and place over very low fire. Discard the liquid that it loses. Repeat a second time. Rub onion with salt and pepper. Boil water with onion and spices, then add arnab and cook over low fire, about 1 hour.

- How to make boiled rabbit, or as they call it in Arabic, Arnab Masloo. Whoa. I ain't travelling to Egypt.
