Technical Difficulties

After six years of untiring, dedicated service, my computer finally quit on me last week, after threatening to do so for the last few months. Now it simply refuses to turn itself on and I will be calling my computer technician soon, but not before I have ensured that the problem is not because I have the cord unplugged or something stupid like that. I cannot handle one more "B.Tech I.T-aa? You-aa? Thoo!" look from him anymore.

Anyway, like most bloggers, I too keep coming up with ideas for posts and writing out entire first paragraphs before losing enthu and turning to other more pleasurable pursuits, such as sleep. This happened a lot last year and as a result, I have some perfectly good introductory paragraphs lying around. I had been intending to revisit them to try and and put them up but this latest development has thrown not just a spanner, but the entire toolbox, in the works. So, unless the problem is something that can be fixed, which I highly doubt, the material in question will be lost forever, along with all my quizzes, e-books, music and porn. (Mom, Dad, if you're reading this, don't worry, this is just one of my jokes. He He He He. You know I don't have any music.)

So till my computer gets fixed, there won't be any longish posts because unreasonable as it is, I am actually expected to do some work in office. But I will be trying to put up some of my usually inane observations whenever I observe them. For example, just this morning, I was watching 'The Man with the Golden Gun' on TV when I felt that the villain's midget sidekick looked kinda familiar. What do you think? Separated at birth?

Vinod its high time that you get tough with your employers. Tell them strictly that you need a Mac with a datacard.This is not done dude and if you need any help do let me know. I am well versed in labor laws and the employers are expected to give these stuff on their own.

did your parents actually believe you? ;)

"Separated at birth?"
good observation! now, people can stop relying on family songs, mango-shaped-mole-on-the-back, etc and come to your blog instead!

You are a very funny guy, when you are not writing about cricket or football. God grant your computer a few more megahertz of life so you can retrieve your data.

Hello from a new blogger!
Emraan Hashmi, the so-called king of kisses! He's supposedly kissing right onscreen - as if there's a definition for such a term..haha! Does his counterpart kiss as well too? :P
I've been visiting you since Guy Pierced which is hilarious. Nice to be here:)
