Image
This weekend marked the celebration of Techical fest "Innofest", organized by IIIT-B kicked off on friday the 23rd.

There were fun filled events such as Teach your professor,Abhivyakthi,DC,Informals(Themes:Inquizzitive,Harry Potter,Lord of the Rings),Mad Ads,LAN Games,Bug Samurai,Code Butter(a continous 12hr coding competition) and a game developed by the students here and brain child of Dr.Prasanna "IChess ".

The one which started with scepticism made people go green with envy as it turned out in a great way.The USP of the fest was the prizes,all gadgets.
From Playstation to XBox , iPOD ,Vista licenses ,headphones,USB Drives,Webcams, definitely this is really awesome.


Some gifts displayed

Great responses to all the events and students took part sportively.

For people who would miss to catch the World Cup match between India and Sri Lanka,it was screened in 70mm projector,sitting blissfully in the landscapes with cool breeze wafting we all guys watched keeping finger…

Circle of life?

Life is very strange I say.
You see people around you and one day you no more see them.Losing friends who have been around ,you who were your seniors guiding you,thinking of enjoying themselves for a couple of days taking a break and losing their lives for fate is unimaginable.

Thinking of their parents moves me to tears.
Shubham and Sumeet(my seniors) and kapil Jamkar(a close friend of my friend) may your soul rest in peace.Amen!

I don't feel like writing any more.

Yahoo Mail Beta and Liam

I have been fida over the new "Yahoo! Mail Beta" .Excellent Web 2.0 and RI Application.
Giving an Outlook feel ,tabbed browsing,shortcuts keys shooing my touch pad for a while ...I definitely like it(with a Switch Back feature to revert in case it is not "likable").

Well for people who have slow net speed, must have seen an animated Gif's while loading the mail service,just an intelligent way of ensuring that users are not put off by the time taken to load the page,here you see this pretty cool guy called "Liam".Preety cool right?

Not Fair yet Lovely

I mulled over certain things at this odd hour of the day(2:30 AM). Call it an eerie feeling of Déjà Vu or conglomeration of wacky thoughts ,some issues keep bowling over me. For instance,when I see lights switched on in rooms even when there is no one or lights on in washrooms even after being used and not giving a hoot to screw the faucets properly I get irked. Well,I am a conservationist per se agreed but definitely not a person to give up things easily.I loathed leaky faucets,over flowing buckets,those pitter patter of drops on the floor and water/electricity getting wasted. At times when I wake up at 9 AM I see the corridor lights unattended in the hostel,I make a point to switch it off every time and tell the security to do the task early from next time but all to deaf ears. I don’t mind doing each day but why when wait for such a long time. The feeling goes like ,”this is not my house so why should I bother”. Are we not contributing to the electricity bill this way or adding woes…

Arbit Musings

Now,the little birdie{Miss KK:KrystalKlear} signs up a blog sitting next to me,when the KSM happens in full swing at 11:45 PM,trying to drive the difference between interfaces,abstract class and what not.I have also "abstractly" understood.Being a fine critic I can't stop telling her do this and that.
This post is basically to get on her nerves and irk her to the zenith.We have swapped blog url,just waiting to drop my brickbats.

All the best dear :).

Blogosphere welcomes you.

Look forward to Damsel's dream II from my end,thanks to the sequel hits of '06.
