June 24th


I was shocked to see that out of the world's top 500 supercomputers, only 2 are installed in India. The country summary table makes it even more scary: Saudi Arabia has 3, China has 5, UK has 36. And we call ourselves IT superpowers.



Dear people who're contacting me for the PHP job post, I am 20 years old, I like to watch Cartoon Network, and eat copius quantities of candies, chips, and other stuff that comes in glitzy wrappers. Hence, I would really appreciate if you do not address me as sir.


new word

Kingsley creates a new word: fundae. Some thing tells me I'm going to be using this a lot.

good news

Mumbaikars rejoice! The great Arnab shall be gracing your city for one more month! Ticket postponed to mid July!


curing nose bleeds

Arnab's cure for persitently reoccuring nose bleeds: Move to Mumbai. I mean it, seriously. In Delhi, they used to happen to me almost every day; but ever since I landed in Mumbai, they've completely gone away. 15 days so far and no problems at all. I believe it has something to do with the humid weather and climate. Perhaps I should contact the Mumbai Tourism Agencies with this as a possible attraction... "Mumbai - The Nose Friendly City"!

more matrix

Reloaded gets banned in Egypt for "depicting religion"

Also, for those of you who wonder why they named the trilogy after a computer data structure, go look up matrix in the dictionary: it means "mother", or "creator".



The hindi version of The Matrix Reloaded is called Mayajaal. It sounds funny at first, but if you think about the maya concept in Indian philosophy, which says that the whole world around us is an illusion, and that all our material needs and desires are inconsequent. So it would be safe to say The Matrix and maya are the same thing, except that the maya concept dates back to 3000 B.C.
