Pics from Gurgaon, again!!

Posted by on in Serious Jokes | 0 comments

Yeah, I visited my friend in Gurgaon again(previous photos here), on November 15th 2005. But we(me, Madan, Arvind and a friend of Madan’s) got around for a walk to one of the malls a bit late in the evening as Madan was stuck with some problems in their software, so it was around 10pm when we reached Sahara Mall, almost all of the stores were closed for the day & the shoppers were all gone pretty much. But there were some still open & we had a quick dinner at Haldiram’s.

the 100MP Living Camera!!

Posted by on in Serious Jokes | 0 comments

How cool would be a 100 megapixel per square inch photograph? Yes, you read it right, 100MP!! đŸ˜¯ It would look quite a bit for those of us with our meagre 2MP or 4-5MP cameras but wait before you throw your cameras to lay your hands on this one!! This is not your ordinary digital camera, its a living camera and the photos come at a price!! It takes about 4 hours to take a snapshot and it works in only red light!! 😕 Yes, 4 hours, now that 4MP camera of yours which takes a snapshot in a second will start looking just amazingly fast to you!! 🙂

My Hindi Blog!!

Posted by on in Serious Jokes | 0 comments

yeah, I found a great tool called HindiWriter which is a conversion tool that converts phonetically written hindi(in english) into UTF8 Hindi. (via Shahab)

now typing in hindi is pretty easier for people like me who don’t know traditional hindi typing. 🙂 and to use this tool more often & get into the habit of hindi writing(its been a long time), I thought what better than to blog in Hindi. And what better way to use my WordPress.com blog? So if you can read hindi and have a Unicode supporting browser(like IE6 or Opera), then you are welcome to visit & read my views expressed in my language at http://www.amitgupta.in/ !! 🙂

Sprained Hand!!

Posted by on in Serious Jokes | 0 comments

Ok, life is like a roller-coaster ride. I was having fun these past few days & now I’m paying for it with a sprained right hand wrapped fully in bandage that I can’t use it right now, so I’m typing this using just my left hand!!

Now, I didn’t get only right hand injured, but had a few scratches & lost a chunk of skin from my right foot as well, the result of my bike colliding with a pig(the animal ofcourse) which suddenly came infront of me out of nowhere when I was speeding down to the Tata Indicom showroom just a few hours back to get my phone fixed. The pig first collided with a car on my left & then with my bike & ran away squealing, while I lost balance, fell on the road & skidded 2-3 meters before stopping!! 🙁 I was saved a lot by the leg guard on the bike which held off the bike’s weight(it weighs 150KG & imagine the increase in it with the impact of it falling down at speed) as it fell to the ground, keeping me safe from some serious injury to my left leg which only got a scratch above the knee cap. The leg guard of the left side ofcourse bent quite a bit & now I’ll have to get it straightened out(its solid steel).

Deepawali 2005 - the Videos!!

Posted by on in Serious Jokes | 5 comments

As promised in my last post yesterday, I’ve the Deepawali videos online!! Well, putting them online was indeed some story worthy of a mention, so I’ll rant about it first!! 😉

This was the first time that I shot videos & also the first time I was putting them online!! Now those of you who know, I’m on a measly 128kbps cable connection that hardly gives me anything above 100kbps on normal days, more than often going to the lowly 60-65kbps. So ofcourse putting the videos online is a problem!! But then, I decided to brave it, to make available online 9 of the videos that I shot, totalling 42.3MB.

A brighter Deepawali!!

Posted by on in Serious Jokes | 0 comments

Yeah, the Deepawali was a lot brighter this year, the number of fireworks & crackers burnt around here was less than last year & its all quiet at 3am in the morning of 2nd November 2005 as I write this blog post(contrary to the crackers that were being set till 4am last year). There are sounds of one off firework going on in distance, some nutters are still at it, forgetting that deepawali is now over!! 😉

Star Wars Quiz!!

Posted by on in Serious Jokes | 4 comments

Yeah, how much you know about the first & second trilogies? You can test your StarWars knowledge by taking this Star Wars quiz at CNN.com. 😉 It’ll actually test you more on the first trilogy than on second!! 😀 So if you haven’t watched the first trilogy, better watch it now, the movies may not have the special effects that the ones in second trilogy had, but the story is still captivating while you can marvel the fact at how they managed to pull them off in the 70s & 80s(The Return of Jedi – 1983) without all the gizmos that they had when making the second trilogy!!

Pre-Diwali Bash? Sort of!!

Posted by on in Serious Jokes | 5 comments

Yeah, I made a trip to Gurgaon this evening with my friend Sharafat to meet two other pals, Madan & Arvind(Madan’s friend) at their office/residence(they have a company provided residence in the same bunglow). The plan was to just screw around some malls & then eat out & have fun, sort of a party(Madan owed one to me).
