Cricket Movies

Good Weekend

Had a great weekend.

  1. Watched 300 – I would call it a decent movie. Watchable. Nothing great. The movie has awesome graphics and some midblowing sequences, like the one where a Spartan kills a Rhino, but what the movie lacks is the ability to get the audience involved in the movie. The movie has lots of blood and gore but at no moment do you find yourself squirming at it. The movie shows underdogs fighting against all odds, but at no moment do you find yourself rooting for it.
  2. Installed Windows on the home PC. Also installed Ubuntu on one of the partitions. Seems that I remember some Linux after all.
  3. Watched the Australian GP. Kimi kicked real ass in his first race with Ferrari. Gonna be fun filled season it seems. Also, Lewis Hamilton drove with purpose and seems like he is gonna give Alonso one heck of a fight. Kubica and Rosberg also drove nicely.
  4. Had loads of fun with Sam, TK, Appu, Pari, Bansal and Sachin. One of the fun filled weekends you always look forward to.

On a separate note the DL101 I had registered for on WIPO Academy sent me the certificate for successful completion of the course. Very cool I must say. Will post a scanned copy very soon.

Last, but not the least, Inzy has retired. The lazy elegance will not be seen in One day cricket any more after the World Cup. You will be missed.


Weekend Plan

Here is what I plan to do this weekend.

  1. Sam is going to be in town over the weekend. So have fun with him, eat out, watch movies and roam around and gen laccha. TK will also come over for a while.
  2. Reinstall Windows and get the machine at home up and running again. (Should remember to backup data before that.)
  3. Probably install a copy of some Linux. By the way, did I tell you I had DSLinux installed on my Windows box over a VMWare Player.
  4. Do something with the domain I bought a couple of days back (More on this later).

By the way, my phone number might change over the weekend. Will update the blog once that happens.

Life’s a Roller Coaster

It is funny how life can be at times. Right from the heights of ecstasy to the depths of misery.

Today was one such day. Started of with a nice feedback for my performance at the job in the last half year, progressed nicely with an unexpected mail from a friend after a long time, a good call with a client. But then God thought, enough good things for a day.

One of the worst calls ever in my professional life. Basically tore us down for everything and anything. I do admit that we were at mistake but we weren’t that bad. We had the results, but not arranged as she wanted them to be. My bad.
