πŸ™‚ Finally!!! Hooh! (big sigh of relief) πŸ™‚

First Friday

Today is the first friday of the month. This week was crazy and very very hectic. Had three deadlines today! Everything went well and am a bit relaxed now. Will try to chill off, rest today and get back to work from tomorrow.
Have a great weekend, everybody!
p.s. One movie I am looking forward to is “The Da Vinci Code“. It will be released on May 19 2006. The trailer is really cool. Have not read the book yet. It’s still on my To-Read list.

3 years

Time flies. I never realized. A lot of things have happened since then (8/8/2002); some for better, some for worse.
Today is also the start of a new phase in my life. It is going to be very busy for the next one and half years. I hope it will be worth the effort. Time will tell.
p.s. This message is cryptic on purpose πŸ™‚

Cheiraoba 2005

Today is the Manipuri New Year (Cheiraoba). In Manipur, there are two Cheiraobas.
The first one is Sajibu Cheiraoba or Meitei Cheiraoba which is held on the first day of the month of Sajibu. This year, it was on April 9th which also matched the other Indian new years of Ugadi (Telugu) and Gudi Padava (Gujrati).
The second one is today (April 14th) and it matches Baisakhi (North India). Cheiraoba is actually the last day of the year. Technically, tomorrow (April 15th) is the start of the new year. Tomorrow is Poila Baisakh (Bengali), Rongali Bihu (Assamese) and Vishu (Malayali).
Called up Baba and Mama, Tamo, Iteima Remika, Dada, Iteima Mona, Cheche Bheman, Cheche Naobi, Sne.
Yesterday, it rained heavily. But today, the sun shined bright and the day was really beautiful. Spring is finally here! Here are some photos taken today at UT:

Why is “i.e.” read as “that is”?

Some people read “i.e.” as “eye eee” and some others (me included) read it as “that is”. Did a quick search on dictionary.com and found that “i.e.” stands for “id est” which is Latin for “that is”. Now, I know! πŸ™‚

Nigritude Ultramarine

Nigritude Ultramarine – Single Post Wins Google Contest [from Wired.com]
Very interesting article.

Anil Dash won the second, and final, round of the two-month SEO Challenge, which called on webmasters and site owners to use any method at their disposal to score the top Google ranking for a made-up term, “nigritude ultramarine.”
Dash’s strategy differed greatly from that of the first-round winner, named a month ago, who claimed his victory through the use of backlinking, a technique in which the required words on other people’s sites were hyperlinked back to his site.
