The Printer Conspiracy

Did you know that your printer prints the date, time, and printer number in secret dots on every page you print? I’d once watched a documentary about how forensic scientists use the dots on print evidence left by imperfections on laser drums to track down printers (and hence suspects), which was pretty cool. But this, especially when the end-user is totally uninformed, is outrageous.

I have INFINITE homework to do; so now is as good as any a time to re-involve myself in what is definitely the most futile activity on this planet. Expect long, wayward commentary on how the American education system cauterizes innocent young minds, turning them into workaholic zombies, amongst other topics. Plus, we still have to talk about the Russian lady who did not know English, but still was intent on conversing with me through all of my Frankfurt-Detroit flight, the scary consequences that lateral inversion has for pedestrians, and how this sentence is way longer than it should be.

Plus, we will talk about my newly acquired, extremely awesome, svelte, beautiful, dark eyed, dark haired, imaginary Spanish girlfriend. Or maybe not.

Gaurav Sabnis resigns from IBM, all thanks to IIPM. I wonder if there are any IIPM alumni in IBM, and if there are, I wonder what they feel about this issue.

Welcome parties, classes, kickball and a pretty looking iMac I bought from Dave, who is a very cool guy, by the way. Writing will stabilize once I have The Internet at home.

arnab dot international

Ladies and Gentlemen, welcome to the first ever arnab dot org blog post from outside India! I really wanted to do a post from Frankfurt; but couldn’t find free/sanely-priced internet anywhere at the airport. It’s raining right now in Ann Arbor, the current weather more or less seems like Bangalore; which I’m very happy with. Anyway, that’s all for now. Off to get some mexican food with seniors!
