Oh where oh where can my baby be
The Lord took her away from me
She's gone to heaven so I got to be good
So I can see my baby when I leave this world

We were out on a date in my daddy's car
We hadn't driven very far
There in the road straight up ahead
A car was stalled the engine was dead
I couldn't stop so I swerved to the right
I'll never forget the sound that night
The screaming tires the busting glass
The painful scream that I heard last

When I woke up the rain was pouring down
There were people standing all around

time passed

Just back from the TpT meetup - kMac, aNax, Pep, and Megs were there. I met Megs and kMac for the first time - it's a unique thing to communicate with a person first via a website, and read their articles / poetry, and then meet them in person. Except for Anuj not showing up, it was a pretty nice thing overall.

I'm pretty tired right now, maybe I'll update this space later with more info about the meetup.

towards a blog~wiki

Nilesh wrote about Wikis, and the need for keyword based browsing in a weblog. A discussion followed in the comments on that entry, and it seems there are quite a few people who like the Wiki concept, but are intimidated by usage.

Wikis are really useful for learning stuff, because of the way content is divided in to sizable, highly interlinked chunks of information. Jumping from one chunk to other is one action - a simple click. But for readers who want to "learn" stuff on a weblog, they do have the search engine at hand, but it's still too complex - yet another text box to fill, and a button to press.

I found this pure DHTML game called Scorched at BodyTag.org. Be careful - it's quite addictive.

Just discovered a phenomenal band called Phenom - PESIT's rock band. They're just back from doing a gig at Linux Bangalore (where 2 of the band members gave a robotics talk!). The band's website has complete band lineup, history, and mp3s of live recordings.

malda's got married

Rob Malda, creator, Slashdot, did this, and it made headlines. And finally this has happened. Cool!

parody

I found this cool parody of American Pie at Slashdot in the comments while searching for info - A Tribute to Slashdot:

A long, long time ago
I can still remember
How the trollers used to make me smile

And I knew if I had to boast
That I could try to get first post
And maybe I'd be happy for a while

But moderators made me shiver
With every minus they'd deliver

DoS scripts couldn't stop it
They scored them all "Offtopic"

I know that it's cheap crack they smoke

breakfast a la grandé

Went out for a walk today in the morning, and fixed myself a comparitively "grand" breakfast after I came back - here's what the menu was like:

Arnab's ispecial Chocolate Coffee (milk, cofee and 1/2 a bar of 5 Star)
Hot Scrambled Eggs with Butter
Toast (Extra crisp)
Hot & Sweet Tomato Chilli Sauce, for the eggs
Nestlé Munch chocolate, to finish.

I had my computer play some songs in the background - from Euphoria's Dhoom to the brilliant song by Eminem - Stan.
