Getting a flavour of Community

Today was the first day of getting a flavour of the "shapeless" beast called community. Went about discussing the launch of new SIG within another user group. this is far from the exact equations of science. this is purely understanding the person in the front and get into his pants. needs a lot of patience and more so a lot of understanding. i am just getting at it!!! some excellent posts on how to carry the user groups forward i found on : there is something interesting as well. linux costs more than windows... challenged??? take a look here: i have always believed in this.. here is the proof that it actually made sense. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------- This posting is provided "AS IS" with no warranties, and confers no rights.

Trip to Kodaikanal

Well, today i got "active" enough to post the kodaikanal photos on web. they are available at : Kodaikanal is a hill station in south India. yes my friend there are other mountains in India apart from the Himalayas... took a bus from chennai and made an overnight journey to the "land of clouds" - well this is term i coined. The day we arrived walked up to coaker's walk.. just hung around a little and wasted time..

First Blog Ever

This is my first blog ever. As I see it, this is a new year, new city (Bangalore, India), new job and great new opportunity to start learning all over again.

The start from being an island to being the channel that feeds to the river of knowledge. You'll see more of me now. --------------------------------------------------------------------------- This posting is provided "AS IS" with no warranties, and confers no rights.
