Been helping Anil to install & setup iTunes in his computer. He just bought an Ipod Nano (4GB for those who note these kind of things) and wanted to start listening to music on it. After I reached home, I guided him through the steps.
My other close friend Madhu wants me to help his wife’s relative get a job in my firm as a call center customer care agent. My company needs people urgently and so I want this girl to drop in by Saturday, attend the interview and if selected she can join the training batch which will start on Monday. He wants to help them out and I hope she gets through.
Need to book my calendar and make sure than nothing else comes in the way. My cousin Shalini is getting married on the 25th of May. The venue is the newish (it’s been up & running for a few years) wedding hall / general events hall right next to the temple in Thrikkakara. Funny thing is, I used to say that I wanted to be the first person to get married in that hall, just because it’s so close to my house. But ofcourse many weddings and some other functions have taken place there. Well, I don’t live there anymore so who cares? You can have it Shals! :P
I’m getting a little addicted to Twitter. Not so much as in posting something; I have done a few since I signed up. But more as in checking the updated comments every 30 minutes and following the links that some Twitters post. It’s really cool.
It’s been decided that the men of the training & quality department will be getting together for a booze party on Saturday the 28th. It should start around 6:30 pm and it will be at the rented place of my MIS guy. 2 bottles of Vodka, 1 bottle of brandy and a couple of big bottles of Sprite & Coke. There are 3 non-drinkers in the bunch. We’re thinking of whole grilled chicken for the main course.
With only 6 inch diameter, E-Ball was claimed as the smallest PC in the world with the ball shape, a mini projector and laser keyboard. Take a look at the pics – you’ll see the pop-out laser mouse, a pico projector inside that illuminates either the wall or a sheet of paper for a screen, and that laser keyboard that would almost certainly be a clumsy input device.
