Thanking Nature In Diamond/Crater Lake

Some quick pix from this Thanksgiving weekend. It was a massive 15 member trip to Diamond lake, Crater lake.

Part of the 'group':


Riding snow-mobiles... another personal-first:


I was lucky to get the 'single' machine:


I haven't copied the pix from other ppl's cameras... So, I don't have the group pix etc to share here... Will do later.

Zune!

In the past month, if you had asked me a question that had the word 'Zune' anywhere in it, I'm sure I wud've given you an earful.

For others: No, I didn't buy it and I won't. I'd rather get paper cuts all over my body and go for a brine dip.

As if my one-on-one rant wasn't enuf, here is something:
Avoid the loony Zune [tx2reddit]

I had to share it coz I just loved the simile employed:
...overall experience is about as pleasant as having an airbag deploy in your face...
:-)

New Definition:
Zune
... a person or thing that desperately tried to mimic a successful product or person, but instead wound up a horribly deformed copy because they totally misunderstood what made the original product or person successful in the first place.

The End

THUD!!!

Two crushed ants.
One was singing and dancing.
Other was brooding and frowning.
Both became dust.
And nothing happened.

One Way To Start A Weekend

I saw Borat last night. I guess I don't have to say anything about that :-)
(I concur with Aaron for most part)

Got up this morning, had coffee, eggs, orange juice, eggs & coffee (again) before playing racquet ball. Oh yeah. We played for just 2hrs today - all doubles. Senthil and I teamed up against Shan & Thom. Good game. (I am not saying if we won or lost, because we lost)

After a refreshing shower, now I am doing the hacking coding, sit-ups, coding club-sandwich... cu later.

(might go golfing... sun is out!)

An Observation

I don't have bad days. I just have days when I need more coffee.

Busy

I've been really busy in the past few days. I am somewhat good at prioritizing. Though I aim to update my blog everyday, it is not exactly my Priority #1. Of course you know that :-)

Quick update: I've been busy with so many different things... However I did buy SimCity 4 and played it few times. I *love* Caesar III and I used to play that all the time. SimCity has the same blood type as that. I've written some interesting tools but they are so unbaked that I can't share them with the world. I've bought few more domain names that fancied me. My abs are getting better ;-) I play racquet ball everyday now - you don't want to be slapped by me. My scores are still dismal but I am working on them. I'm not up to date with friends (yet)... I haven't returned all calls. I've learned a lot of web programming related stuff - still there is a long way to go though.
