The Geek & The Ghost-4

After the mouse trouble, whenever the ghost had a problem with her lappy (which was very often)she just turned around to the geek who was just sitting opposite to her in class.Not much will be spoken,bcoz first she has no clue about what is the problem,second its usually the same problem and third the geek never says no and like the Hutch puppy is always “happy to help”

“DJ (the geek’s name and henceforth will be used often ) ..its happening again”

DJ: give it to me

(after fiddling with it sumtime)

DJ:”DG (undoubtedly that's the ghost) here take it,its fixed”

DG:”thank you”

DJ doesn't say anything ,just gives a smile and instantly goes back to whatever he was doing.

This went on for like two weeks and the pattern of dialogue continued to be the same.

Meanwhile light years away (FYI,Light Year is a measure of distance and not time)…. 

Info COV was fuming after seeing the GG weekly report…..

“that's it?? progress??…this is not enough..its peanuts…do you even realize what will happen if this operation fails???..the IFR(info flow rate) levels will be crazy enough to crash the got 24 hrs..better get this started or I am pulling the plug on this operation..AM I CLEAR?”

the ops duo said in unison “Yes Sir

The two operations executives (ops duo) were in a desperate situation to initiate online contact between DJ & DG.After intense brainstorming in Star-Buks (this is actually located in a star near the Andromeda) they finally got it.

“you think this will work??”

“i am positive”

“we don’t have much time we got only one shot”

“i know..the timing is got to be dead on”

“yes.. they both have to be online”

“most importantly, they should not be present offline in close proximity”

“I will hack the admin mailbox and mess with the file extension..but R U you sure he can fix it??”

“I am positive”

“you better be… bcoz if this fails He’s gonna hyperblast our @$$e$ in cosmic proportions” 

Back in Earth………

DG refreshed her inbox for the zillionth time,and needless to say she was damn irritated.She was waiting for the next term schedule which is supposed to come in the mail. Not that she was keen to know classes to prepare her study schedule,but she wanted to see the schedule so that she can plan her trip to home and book the tickets asap.

And finally when the mail came,DG quickly downloaded the file and clicked open……but it didn’t..  "$#!T… why in the hell its not opening”…she tried different things like forwarding and opening in other mails…pinged her online buddies…but everybody said the same…none were able to open it.Then it came to her mind…if anybody could solve this its him… 

“DJ dude…. where are you……………”(DJ dooby doo)

but he was not there in her orkut list which meant he was not in her gtalk too…

She went to another guy’s profile who adds each & everybody he knows to his orkut account,not surprisingly, she found DJ in his list and quickly sent him an invite.

Exactly 2 minutes later ….it popped up.

DJ has accepted you request.

DJ :“HI”

DESI MOM –(hilarious)

Got this in the mail :) :) - (Thanks Sathish  for sharing)

A Mom comes to visit her son Kumar for dinner.....who lives with a
girl roommate. During the course of the meal, his mother
couldn't help but notice how pretty Kumar's roommate was. She had long
been suspicious of a relationship between the two, and this had only
made her more curious.
Over the course of the evening, while watching the two interact, she
started to wonder if there was more between Kumar and his roommate
than met the eye.
Reading his mom's thoughts, Kumar volunteered, "I know what you must
be thinking, but I assure you, She and I are just roommates."
About a week later, the girl came To Kumar saying, "Ever since your
mother came to dinner, I've been unable to find the silver plate. You
don't suppose she took it, do you?" Kumar said ,"Well, I doubt it, but
I'll email her, just to be sure."
So he sat down and wrote :

Dear Mother:
I'm not saying that you 'did' take the silver plate from my house, I'm
not saying that you 'did not' take the silver plate .. But the fact
remains that it has been missing ever since you were here for dinner.
Love, Kumar

Several days later, Kumar received an email from his Mother which read

Dear Son:
I'm not saying that you 'do' sleep with your roommate, and I'm not saying
that you 'do not' sleep with her. But the fact remains that if she
was sleeping in her OWN bed, she would have found the silver plate by
now under the pillow...

Lesson of the day:
Don't Lie to Your Mother...........especially if she is Desi

Rumbling Rain & Tumbling roads

Bangalore is a well known city around the globe and often compared with the Silicon valley of USA. But it is also compared with New York for a different infamous reason…traffic.Its a common to hear people muttering “bloody traffic” I remember Dhiru, during his first month in Bangalore had his name in Orkut as “Bangalore Traffic… #@$$#&%$# (he is too decent to swear:p).

Now throw some rain on the bloody traffic and it gets bloodier…actually muddier.Anyways after battling with the horrid traffic ,somehow I managed to reach my place..i was in for huge shock.Just when I thought it was safe..I saw my street gushing with rain water. I wished i had a inflatable raft instead of undergoing the torture of walking through it.If u r one of the poor souls like me who live in a low level kindest condolences to u.

Its not that i don't like rain.As a person who spent my entire childhood in a hot city like Madurai,Rain was a gift to escape the heat.I too have enjoyed the wonderful rainy days, sitting in the porch with family with a hot cup of elaichi tea and sizzling samosas :)……… i miss those days :(

Rain is heavenly.EVEY (V4Vendetta) says “God is in the Rain” standing in the rain while finding her true self. I guess even in Rains some are Good, some are Bad,some are just the one i saw today…

The Geek & The Ghost -3

This story is based on some true events, however it has been fictionalized and all persons appearing in this work are fictitious. Any resemblance to real people, living or dead, is entirely coincidental.

It was a fine day and as usual it was classroom filled with boredom.It was so boring,that even the professor was wishing if he could give proxy for himself and go to his cabin.He cursed himself for not having told the students to make presentations so that he could manage a nap while the students try their best to imitate the faculty.
But then he had one more hour in the afternoon,so he desperately wanted to escape from professing before boredom kills him.Surprisingly he got an idea (may be he ate a mentos or something) and told the class to present a case in the noon and gave the remaining time to prepare.This pattern followed in the future also so effectively he reduced his professing time to 15 mins (the first 15 mins he takes the roll call which is the only reason students come to class)
Anyways,after hearing the professor almost everyone left to the canteen.As usual just one or two remained in each group,who usually do the work.Since the Ghost got her lappy for hearing songs, she was given the burden of preparing the ppt. And so grumbling at her fate she started working on it. And something went wrong in her lappy as it usually does and the mouse pad was dead.She tried everything ,even restarted it,but in vain,the mouse was still dead (don't say ewww or aww I am talking about the touchpad in the laptop).So she looked for help.
As fate would have it, there he was sitting alone in the next row,the geek, her saviour,  looking at the computer screen so intensely as if he is trying to get inside of it. She thought for a moment ‘should i ask him?’.The geek had a good reputation of being a geek which meant he is good with computers.So she thought “there’s no one better here,so why not ask him”.So she approached him and then it struck her… she didn’t even know his name. But then, she was smart to handle these situations and  so simply said  “Yaar ,my mouse is not working,can u check it”. The geek as u might  have guessed  was a big time loser when it comes to girls, almost inversely proportional to his expertise with computers. For a split second , he thought she meant something else,but as she held her laptop towards him ,he quickly dismissed the thought,cursed himself and quickly regained his composure and said “yeah sure”.   
Not surprisingly he fixed it and would have been better if he had stopped there. But then he started explaining how did he fix it and what to do if the problem arises in the future.
You shud try restarting it first
I did
Oh …if it does not work try rebooting in safe mode
“Oh ok” (in her mind… “no clue what it means”)
“Otherwise you can go to control device manager,select touchpad and look for error messages”
“hmm.. yeah will do that” (“what is he talking , is this English”)
“probably u may need to update or reinstall the device driver”
hmm.. sure.. thanks (“just give back my lappy.. u freak”)
Mean while light years away from Earth…..
The two young fellows entered the cabin of the Info-CoV.He looked at them and nodded signaling them to give the status report on mission G&G
“Operation was successfully accomplished @ 1300 hrs resulting in initial offline contact”
The Info-CoV smiled and said “that’s good,how was it done?”
“We infiltrated her system and corrupted her cursor controller”
“Hmm..good work both of you.Keep me updated ,btw what’s next?”
“Operation will commence in approximately 48 hrs to initiate first online contact”

The Geek & The Ghost -2

This story is based on some true events, however it has been fictionalized and all persons appearing in this work are fictitious. Any resemblance to real people, living or dead, is entirely coincidental.

The Geek spends most of the time online.The first thing he does when he gets up is to switch on his laptop and connects to the world wide web.He is so addicted to the net that many times he ends up staying inside his room all day.He dreams about about jacking himself to the net like in the movie “The Matrix”.He is actually frustrated about the “slow growth” of technology(his friends call him insane for this opinion) bcoz today’s tech still does not allow him to feed and related metabolic tasks online. He is very sure that one day Machines are going to become a whole new race and prevent mankind from screwing up the earth.
Surprisingly, Ghost also spends most of her time on the net. Unlike the geek who does information search and read articles ,she watches movies and listens to songs and chats a lot (she has lot of friends).
The geek hardly chats online,he doesn't like to waste his time taking about stupid stuff and believes 90% of chat time is unproductive.
Convinced by the olive theory, The CoV’s -Controllers of the Verses(universe) ..the so called Gods decided it will be good if they connect G&G, so that the enormous information flow in the system can be streamlined.Later the geek found this and explained it to her..she was like “whatever… dude”.
Anyways ,even though the Geek & Ghost were in close proximity ,they have never spoken to each other and apart from the names, hardly knew each other.So the CoV’s were wondering how to make them talk. It is believed they stole a lot of bollywood DVD’s to plot strategies.
And as always Google came to the rescue,since both were online,the CoV’s got hold of Google Analytics Report of both of them which gave details about their online behavior. After a thorough analysis they found both of them were connected in a particular web service – A novice management trainee put up a nice ppt and presented the result of analysis to the CoV’s - “G&G were always in Gtalk”
The InformationCoV stood up and rested his arms in the large mahogany table where all prominent Cov’s were seated.He then spoke “Gentlemen That’s our In”

The Geek and the Ghost –1

This story is based on some true events, however it has been fictionalized and all persons appearing in this work are fictitious. Any resemblance to real people, living or dead, is entirely coincidental.

G&G -1
Unlike other stories ,it was not Long Long ago but happened very recently and definitely not in a galaxy far far away but only in Namma Bengaluru.
Like Avril sings "He was a Boy , She was a Girl- can I make it any more obvious" 
The Boy is the Geek (he thinks he is one of greatest minds in this universe) and he is proud of it.
He is seemingly quiet ,but sometimes changes his overall persona and imagebecomes a  lot  more fun usually among relatives & close friends(read girls).For a Geek, he is very cool guy but still remains a geek by default.He was good at Heart and Clean Brain with a pure soul but soon realized ,ppl like him are called LOSERS, so now he is just good at heart ,corrupted brain & a impure soul.But he doesn’t blame the world and insists the transformation was voluntary. He has a Dark & Mysterious side, but never lets it out as he fears it will hurt people around him.Anyways the Geek is a simple guy who is intellectual ,rational ,patient and  most of the time dull & boring.U will get to know more abt him as the story goes.Capture
The Girl is the Ghost, as she often whispers“I am ghost” over the phone. Although she is one hell of a girl, she is not a Demon or Evil, but a good natured Ghost like Casper(actually the geek thinks so). She is like the complete opposite to the geek , irrational, stupid,impatient but fun all the time.She laughs a lot, yells a lot,and basically does everything in hyper level…basically she is loud whereas he is subtle.
According to the Olive theory in the sitcom “How I Met Your Mother” where  in a couple if one hates to eat olives and the other loves to eat olives , it is considered they are made for each other.In same way the He likes to listen more & talk less and She talks all the time & listens little. So the Universe thought it will be strategic fit between the two and conspired a not so elaborate plan.…

ps: let me know how much this sucks :p

Eat out @ Food Street

Food Street in V.V. Puram, Bangalore is one busy place which is always swarmed by families.Apart from the lip smacking array of dishes from Butter dosa to American Corn,one of the main reasons is the timings. While most of the darshans& sagars start closing at 9pm ,Food street gets crowded after 10pm.

I just came from food street after a filling dinner with my friends. Food street works for us for a lot of reasons.Its not very far ,not to pricey,good food,and is always filled with people which is a good thing.. u know what I mean :p

For a detailed description of food street, u can check out this article in Hindu
