BBQs are fun!
The recent Top Gear episode in Vietnam was excellent. Hope they do one in India sometime.
Sorry Bhai! - Don’t know if India’s there yet to enjoy/appreciate this movie, although I certainly did.
Stuck in my head - Superchor from Oye Lucky. Good song.
@blah_bleh Ghajini is certainly inspired by Memento, but it’s not a rip-off. Needed some more trimming but it was good nonetheless.
Ghajini half-time at Greater union. Crowd is worse than what you’d get at Uphaar. Movie’s good so far.
@xAbhishek Wrong camera settings are painful. If it comforts you, I’m pretty sure every SLR owner has experienced the horror…
@blah_bleh Arrey I forgot to window shop and be prepared for the boxing day sale on 26th! Reality does not necessarily mean work ;)
All this vellapanti and joblessness has made me lost, out-of-focus. Need to get back on track and come back to reality.
@sumitsharan Ha ha ha!
Hum de dum de dum…
@kabir88 Haha. That was quick (on a lot of levels)!
Almost all my friends in Melbourne will be gone come Sunday :( I should’ve stuck to my earlier plan and been in Delhi next week.
@blah_bleh Nothing against Silverlight per se. Install-yet-another-plugin-to-view-content-in-a-proprietary-format (TM) is what I’m against.
@sumitsharan Awesome!!! You’re so lucky that I’m jealous! :P

@sumitsharan lucky ass. Enjoy it while it lasts!
@rakeshrach Haha. Seriously, just can’t hear it enough times!
The song Guzarish from Ghajini is simply superb. Has a distinct South Indian & Rahman sound.
A long day on Skype comes to an end…
@rungtaakki nice nice
Dasvidaniya - leaves you with a lump in your throat. Another nice movie with Vinay Pathak.
@rakeshrach Glad to hear that. Yeah, hope the others do to.
@rashmiswamy Thanks, although I’m sure the D was a result of scaling, not me.
Disaster averted - passed Grid Computing with a distinction!
@rakeshrach Oh no! Hope they all get off safely.
@rashmiswamy terrifying! Makes me wonder if we’re safe anywhere now.

Channel Ten is NOT showing the post-race press conf. of the final race of the season – I don’t believe it!
THAT was a race worthy of a Formula 1 title showdown. Nail biting to the last second! Absolutely amazing…
@wateva Yup, the crowd was awesome (and a little too biased, but I don’t blame them). Can’t wait for the race.
Cut short qualifying coverage at 4:10 am to show video hits! Seriously??? I hate Channel Ten.

@xAbhishek they were actually selling manuals for $10!?!? Why didn’t they just download the user guide from the support site?
@wateva I’m on.
@rungtaakki yeah, I remember the D1, 2, 3 series. Fun times
So, it is before the tracks of Caulfield Racecourse (as always), the doom of this semester will be decided.
The moment I start studying my head fills up with 100s of fantastic ideas and things to do, all the f**king time!
@xAbhishek I’m glad that I have an older MacBook Pro because I just love my matte display.
@sumitsharan yup, it was definitely hilarious at times (Clooney, Malkovich, Simmons). Guess I liked Burn After Reading after all!
Oh and the new MacBooks look much better in person. Still not convinced that glossy displays were the way to go though.
Burn After Reading was…weird. Had some great moments though.
@sumitsharan Virals are bad. Take care and get well soon!
@wateva yeah but with emotions and expressions, unlike Kimi
Gotta love Robert Kubica’s interviews!
@wateva yeah he might’ve gained a few more points if he hadn’t not collided with Bourdais.
@wateva but a good race nonetheless
That was a very unexpected and exciting start to the Japanese GP!
Ah sweet mangoes…
@sumitsharan it’s not going great for me either a.t.m. Hopefully not for long…
@sumitsharan Ooo :P What did you do?
@rakeshrach Yup. It’s like you’re learning a bit about yourself too!
Books, movies, music. Life would be so dull without them.
@rungtaakki Why don’t you start your flickr account by giving us a few glimpses of Newcastle
@rashmiswamy can’t talk tonight. Got an assignment due tomorrow.
@rashmiswamy just got back from tennis
Damn this daylight saving hoopla. One less hour to sleep :(
@rungtaakki great find. Now where can I watch the movie?
@rungtaakki cold, hot, wet or all of it like Melbourne’s weather?
@xAbhishek Haha. Expected nothing less from Drona. :P

‘A Wednesday’ - nice movie, especially the script. Good to see such stuff from Bollywood.

@rashmiswamy yeah, good for Alonso, really sad for Massa though. And damn the safety car rules
Singapore looks absolutely stunning tonight! Envy everyone at the race.
@wateva the book.
@rashmiswamy engrossed in ‘The Kite Runner’
@xAbhishek you guys have way too many exams
@wateva I just remembered that I’d seen this one too, but the quality was definitely much better on the red bull website.
@wateva Was in the shower. Going for dinner now.
@wateva I’m up!
@sumitsharan go dude, go! Go just to hear them roar.
@sumitsharan could you hear the F1 cars during free practise today?
@rakeshrach Darn them labels.
Can’t wait to watch The Office season 5 premiere :D

@wateva Nice! So how’s the EyeTV?
@rakeshrach How could I not be. And the IMAX sequences were amazing. I wanna watch The Dark Knight again.
Met my expectations, blew them away, left my mouth hanging.
@sumitsharan yeah, must’ve been. Grids are quite hot and in demand these days.
Grid computing’s first lecture was so interesting that I’m scared of being disappointed as the semester progresses. Hope I’m wrong!
@sumitsharan consider yourself lucky that you at least got to attend it!
@sumitsharan We do, just not that many reasonably priced ones on-campus.
Boring lectures, bad food and lots of free time. Its good to be back at uni.
@blah_bleh Not sure. I think you’d still need an account with a store which has the album whose album-art you’re looking for.
There’s now an Indian iTunes store, although its only got the App Store at the moment.

@sourima7 It selects a song in the album, and that’s the one I pointed. Anyway, its ‘Piazza, New York Catcher’.
That was one filling sandwich.
@wateva he he he he
@wateva 6 inches already fell in my stomach. The next six following up pretty soon!
@rashmiswamy Haha. No, but I’m just about to have a Subway sandwich.
Sounds delicious! I’ll be there
@sourima7 I like pretty much all the songs from Juno, but that one is my favourite.
itunes.apple…?i=269737297[+] - Can’t hear it enough times!
Assholes! Fire alarm at 2 am! Even if I try to be good and sleep early, its no use.
Vegetarian food at the mess hall was actually edible at today’s dine-in!
Spare change? http://wvs.topleftpixel.com/08/04/14/ LOL
@rashmiswamy Ya I hated that too. Stopped subscribing to ToI almost a month back.
Aarghh!! I hate doing non-stimulating, purely writing based assignments.
@rashmiswamy ha ha. I’ll be at a friend’s b’day party so we’ll have to delay it atleast one more hour.
@wateva What est would that be?
@rakeshrach Nice. Have a great day!
@rakeshrach I’ll be climbing the heap of assignments. Which mountain are you going to climb?
@rashmiswamy Thanks for the tip. Bought that and the Schumacher book Rohit suggested.
@xAbhishek With pleasure! Now hurry up Apple!!
iPhone in Australia in June; 3G; no carrier/contract lock in? Sounds too good to be true - forums.macta…o-power.html[+]
@rashmiswamy Oh no! Sorry for you. Hope you get well soon. Try reading books - that’s what I do when I fall sick.
@rakeshrach Only got here (class) like 10 minutes back.
Crap. Got a class at 10 tomorrow and it 2:30am already!
Algorithms and Data structures lectures - best sleeping pills this semester!
I..just..HATE..it when a site resizes my window, even if its about the sequel of 4 penguins, a lion, a zebra, a hippo and a giraffe.
@rakeshrach Tragic thing to happen. Things seemed to have cooled down here. How’s it in the city?
And now its raining! Hopefully that’ll slow down the winds and clean up the dust in the air.
@rakeshrach People killed?!! We had falling trees and buildings evacuated in the Uni but luckily no casualities.
This is nice, projector down so going around the campus in search of an empty lecture theatre!
prateekrungt…st/wp-plugin[+] - just released LinkedList.wp 1.0.1!
@rashmiswamy Great! Told you not to worry. :)
@rashmiswamy Btw, how did it go with your references sheet?
Been watching way too many movies lately. I’ve got to get away from DC!!
End of mid-sem break. Back to uni from tomorrow :(
@rashmiswamy Snowfall….does that make you feel good or bad?
“De Ushuaia A La Quiaca” from The Motorcycle Diaries — what a track! Gives tough competition to “Le moulin” from Amélie.
@xAbhishek Thanks Abhishek. Will probably add it to the other areas of my site in the future.
@sourima7 You’ve just got to add people you want to follow and blabber whatever you feel like in 150 chars or less. Also works via sms!
Why why why is it so hot? Sleepy but can’t sleep because of the damn heat.
Boiling hot, loud (and I mean LOUD) cars and hot chicks - I’m at the Australian Grand Prix.
Hamilton on Pole, Kubica, Kovalainen and Massa next. And we thought Ferrari was gonna dominate.
Kimi out of qualifying due to technical glitches!! There goes any hopes of him winning the opener.
@rashmiswamy Yeah that month arrangement is a bit tricky. Resize the page and you’ll probably see what I mean.
http://prateekrungta.com/sitemap - One stop shop for all the pages on my site. Very handy for searching.
38 degrees of Centigrade baking me nice and hot. Wait, did I say nice?
@xabhishek I know! Was very hard to justify paying that much, but boy, Media Temple is totally worth it!
And prateekrungta.com is back online in Aus too!
@wateva How did it go?
@rashmiswamy Oops. Which version did it get updated to? Last I remember, all versions upto 1.1.4 have been unlockable.
@rashmiswamy huh! How did you manage that?
@rashmiswamy what’s gotten you lost?
Found 2 dollars after emptying my clothes from the washing machine - love it when this kinda thing happens!
http://www.betano1.com/ - “Raju, paise kahan se aye?”
My UNIX professor - after swapping two lines in vi using only 2 keystrokes, “That’s why I haven’t got RSI!”
Just saw a MacBook running XP. Ugh.
Trying to get more people onto twitter – just sent out 5 invites.
Been learning sorting every year for the past 7 years and its back again this year…
THE HEAT IS KILLING ME!!! 36 friggin degrees!
Checkout the second video on cs.cmu.edu/~…rojects/wii/[+]
@rashmiswamy Replied! :)
Finally found time to update my blog!
Thank God classes are finally over. Today was long, hot and boring. Just feel like crashing, but its only 6pm :(
@wateva Good luck with it.
And guess what, India just won the ODI series!!!
@wateva BASTARD!! Woah woah woah!!!
What’s a man to do after a boring day at uni? Watch Russel Peters live!
Finally powered by Leopard!
@rashmiswamy And what have you been up to, that so many things deserve thanks?
The customary Nott night. Now I’ve finally ‘settled down’ since my return!
Back in the land of the kangaroo!
Dipin, Nimit, Kunal and Ranjit; Taare Zameen Par, Sunday and 300 (again); Go Karts and Vada Pao – Pune was awesome!
@rakeshrach Neither can I! 4 hours more to go…
@rashmiswamy All the best!
So its goodbye Delhi in 2 hours. Met (in order) Varenya, (Neetu didi n Jijaji), Karan, Souvik, Amit, Anchal, Shubra, Sumit, Rohan and Swati.
Crap! I forgot to allocate my preferred timetable when Allocate+ opened 4 days back. I hope some good spots are still vacant.
Had the DPS RKP (TM) Patty after 2 years…
I’m back in Delhi! :D
Happy New Year people!
