One change, I just omitted "HOI Episode 3" from the title because it would have made it too big. And yes, is anonymity ke chakkar mein he/she likhne mein bahut problem hoti hai, I will use hs instead of he/she and iser instead of his/her from now on.

Getting on with the third episode, I know you must have read the title but I must like to quote it again here that 'Student and RCwala' is 'Based on True Rumors' and I have no proof whatsoever to prove the events authenticity.

This is about my friend who joined college just after class 12th (out from school to be a student again) and is curious as everyone of us is about the new campus. So, hs just goes around exploring iser new campus going to the sports field, canteen, labs and accidentally reaches The RC - The Resource Center. Wow, hs was surprised seeing so many books (foreign editions with colored pages), good quality furniture, air cooled environment. So hs thought why not take some book and read it. Hs was neither the bookworm type nor the one who likes reading novels and stuff. Just as you might have guessed my friend did not have much idea about a library or RC. So hs pulls out a book from the shelf, moves out of the room and heads towards the gate of the RC.

Beep, beep, beep, beep, tyau, tyau tyau tyau..

What was this sound ?

Oh I see, my friend just missed noticing the magnetic checkpoints installed at the RC exit that alarms the staff there about unissued books being carried out. So, the RCwala runs after him and catches him with the unissued book.

RCwala : Why are you taking this book without getting it issued ?

Student(my friend) : Issued ? What is that suppose to mean ?

RCwala : You are supposed to present the book at the counter and get it issued for reading. You cannot just take that book away.

Student : Oh ! is that so ? I am sorry, I didn't know ?

(What ?? Man you didn't know that its the library and that you are not the owner of all the books present here and that if there was no book issue/return system, how will the RCwalas keep track of which book is with whom and where ?)

:ahoy: I mean Ah !! HOI !! :D

Time for poll again !!
Here are the poll results

Everybody say "Hail SD !! Hail PG!!

Episode 3 - "Student and RCwala : Based on True Rumors" will be up soon.
[Sorry, could not go by the poll results. I found something very interesting, so thought of posting it first. As far as the poll result of the episode you people wanted, that will be posted next (if I don't find something as interesting as this one :P)]

As you all are aware that not long ago when I planned to start this HOI Series, I posted "Sandy can WAIT !!" where I described this series. After describing the rules, request and RTI part I wrote a line
This being a pilot post (lol :P), let me give you the titles of the upcoming episodes of this series.
Now I curse myself as to why I used this term
As you all are aware or might not be aware that my blog is read all over the world and is discussed about often. (:boastingly:)

Somewhere on the net I came across one such conversation between A and B and was surprised to read something very interesting. Actually, surprised is not the word I should have used. I was shocked to read it. Here is the excerpt which made me feel so.

oi wats dis pilot incident toks of sum pilot post related wid ya
Wait people it is not over yet, the reply to A's question which B gave was even more interesting and totally different from what I had expected. B said

I dunno anything about the pilot incident...
pk bakk maar raha hai....
HOI pe HOI ho gaya yeh toh. :S

PS : Multiple votes allowed this time. Vote for two people. Guess who is A and who is the even smarter B. A and B may delete that conversation, don't worry I can prove it.
Well, enough time for the poll I guess. Here are the results.

This is the public opinion not mine.

I don't know whether the majority's decision is correct or not. In fact, I don't even know who PG is :P. The poll answers were some random pair of alphabets plus some standard ones.

Just for your information, I got this anonymous comment on that post

Anonymous said...

hey y did u tell every 1 ki its me....lolss
:P :P :P :P :P :P
mast likha hai ......hail to pk

No idea who this is. Seriously. :P

Anyways, the next poll is about to decide what the next episode should be. I will not even give a brief description of the titles, just vote for the title you think sounds interesting.

And yes, I have this better looking poll now ;)
Its all about an attractive User Interface.

PS : It is quite possible that you might face problems with this new poll, either while voting or you might not even see it at all. Just add a comment to this post mentioning your problem and I will correct it.
Welcome all to the first episode of this new series HOI. As I mentioned titles of few upcoming episodes in the pilot post, on Sandy's request, I start with "Print Screen".

[The story consists of fictional elements]

Not quite long back a friend of mine had to show me something unusual happening on his/her computer but did not know how to do it. So, I told my friend that you can take a screen shot of the screen and mail it to me and I began to explain how to take screen shot on the operating system my friend was using (Windows XP in this case).

I asked my friend to press the PRINT SCREEN key which can be found somewhere on the top right. To my surprise I got the reply that there was no such key. I looked upon my keyboard and noticed the alternate name for the key (in my case it was Prt Scr). But even this key wasn't there on my friend's keyboard. I couldn't figure out any other alternate name for the key or any other location for the key (except top right), so I asked for the model number of the computer or keyboard. My friend gave me the number and I searched for it on the net.

In the image I got on the net I could easily see the key I was looking for and that too in the top right. I told my friend that the key is indeed present on the KEYBOARD and was second from the left in the top row.

What reply could you expect ?

My friend said, "Oh ! You meant keyboard, I was looking for it on the screen. Sorry".

I began pulling my hair !!

Well, finally everything was done as it had to be but PRINT SCREEN KEY on the SCREEN ? :O

PS : Sandy and Aatish want me to reveal names but I don't want to. Aatish asked me to use initials and Sandy gave me an idea of having a poll. So, mixing both of them I have started a poll that you can see on the right. Participate in the poll and vote for who you think is the person talked about in this episode. I will continue the poll thing with every episode but not mention it again in the post. Go Go Go !!
For all those who are eagerly waiting for Sandy Exposed !! - Sandy can wait (as the title says). I have to collect data, jot it down, organize it, type, publish :yawn: 2 much work. By the time I do that I have some very interesting stuff for you.

I now start the HOI Series which means Height of Ignorance.

Not every one is an Expert in every field. Not every one has sound knowledge on every topic.

But often arises a situation when a person A while conversing with other person B expects B to know as much as he/she does or even more. And this gives rise to a BIG Problem which when looked upon later, brings smile on the faces of both the parties (I am sure about A, not much about B though :P).

So, from now on I will start posting The HOI Series.

Rules :
* No names will be mentioned.
* Participants of every incident remain anonymous.

Request :
* Please take it in good humor.
*I in no way intend to embarrass you or insult you.

RTI (Right to Interfere) :
* You can at any time ask me to remove the post or to stop from continuing if you don't like it or feel offended.

This being a pilot post (lol :P), let me give you the titles of the upcoming episodes of this series.

* Samba
* Print Screen
* President
* Firefox
* French Open Final
* Net Send

So, all set. Stay tuned. I am about to start soon. Come back soon.
You can now restrict Google Image search to news and faces.
I thought not many people knew about it so why not post it here.

In the URL (the big http://....thing written in the address bar) just append &imgtype=face for filtering search results to only those that have faces or append &imgtype=news for news related image.

Try it out here


For those who got the trick, use it and enjoy. For those who did not, you can come back here anytime and use this search.
Not long ago I posted about a magic trick performed by Daivd Blaine. In the post I mentioned the magic trick he performs when he asks you to choose any 2-digit number between 1 and 50 having both digits odd an distinct, the number chosen the most is 37.

Here, I just found out some more about number 37. It is related to Mathematics.
Not a great deal, but then more than a usual number.
Just multiply 37 by multiples of 3 and check out the results.

37 X 03 = 111
37 X 06 = 222
37 X 09 = 333
37 X 12 = 444
37 X 15 = 555
37 X 18 = 666
37 X 21 = 777
37 X 24 = 888
37 X 27 = 999

First the magic trick and now this simple mathematics.
Interesting results...huh ?
Well I woke up today morning, did some RI work, read some magazine, went online, orkut, facebook and then thought of catching up with friends online on gtalk.

So I logged onto gtalk and hav 18 friends online out of which 12 have their status message set to "Do not disturb".

Believe me I know how busy they are :P

So was just wondering why do people set their status as "Do not disturb".

At the first place, almost everyone knows how busy you are :P

Secondly, if you are really so busy then why are you online ?

And then when people like me who even after reading this message start a conversation with you, why the hell do you respond, and can't you just act or control your emotions so that you actually don't let the other person know as to how desperately were you waiting for someone to message you. [:P]

Leaving aside these 12 people other 2 were "Away", 1 "zzzzzzzz" and 2 "Not at my Desk"
and the one left - well I discussed the same thing with him as well and laughed a lot at possible reasons each of us was putting forward.

And then that last guy had to go offline (for lunch), I thought of posting here and thus set even my status to "Do not disturb" just to check if it feels special or anything else of that sort.

Sorry guyz, especially to those 12, it was just a thought :P, no hard feelings.

EDITED PART goes here :

Just came here to append, that one other contact came online just now and they have their status set to - yes u guessed it right :P
ESPN, the US sports channel owned by Disney has acquired cricinfo from Wisden.

Cricinfo is a website which provides latest happenings and statistics about cricket to all the cricket fans.

The value of the deal was not disclosed.

SO after, and ESPN now also has
There some interesting news from Apple for all Windows users. Apple has introduced 'The world's best browser' as they say - SAFARI - for Windows.

Not long ago Barcelona's Lionel Messi scored a solo goal picking the ball up from inside his own half on the right flank in a King’s Cup tie against Getafe, he dribbled past two defenders, swerved past two more and rounded the goal keeper to score from a very tight angle. It was said to be exact replica of the goal scored by another great footballer former Argentinian striker Diego Maradona.

And yet again on Saturday Messi scored the famous (or infamous ?) HAND OF GOD goal against Espanyol which incidentally was also a replica of Maradona's 'Hand of GOD' goal against England in the 1986 World Cup in Mexico.

Here is another close look

Cunning effort isn't it ?

But according to Messi, “We can talk a lot about that goal but these things happen in football. It only won us a point. There’s no point comparing me to Diego because he was unique. I’m not trying to score the same goals as him, they are simply things that happen during a match.”
Two great footballers, playing for the same country, first the solo wonder and then the HAND OF GOD replica. I wonder whats next :)

Hmmm....long time since I posted here...
first had exams and then was on a vacation...

At home I made it a point to see David Blaine's street magic on AXN.

I don't think the name DAVID BLAINE needs any introduction.
For those early men or women reading this post, I am sorry, search for this name. He is one person you surely need to know about.

I like almost every trick he performs but the one that caught my attention was...

aah wait a minute...

First, think of a 2-digit number between 1 and 50..

Both of the digits of this number should be odd and distinct.

. now I guess you havw a number in your mind...

Is it 37 ??

If it is then I am sure you are as surprised as I was when it worked on me while Blaine was performing this trick on TV :O

I tried this on many of my friends and most of the time it worked and that is what made me write this post. Is something special with this number, keeping in mind that there are other numbers which fulfil the criteria - 13, 17, 19, 31, 35 and 39.

For all those who didn't choose 37 try it on your friends and I am sure there will be a fair amount of them who choose 37.

Yet another trick Blaine performs is choose a card out of the 52 playing cards...that are non-aces...

People often choose Queen of Diamonds though it didn't work with my friends as good as 37 one did...

So whats so special about 37...any idea ??
