    Week draws to a close

    This week has been rather uneventful. The bug that has been worrying me last week, continues to do so with no solution. I’m finding my schedules slipping and I just don’t like that! Managed to dodge one really heavy shower just after I got off the bus, but got stuck in the next one, resulting in an extremely wet jeans! 😐 Am glad that my cellphone didn’t get wet. Way too expensive and I soon will be way too poor to be able to change a cell at this point in time. The weekend is also lined up, which means very little rest. And my last AIMCAT really mocked me…

    It’s Party Time

    Had planned on getting to bed by 9.30pm yesterday, but well everytime doesn’t always happen to plan. This time I am not complaining 🙂 Went over to U. Conrad‘s place for the birthday celebrations. I realized that I had reached there a bit too early because most of the others actually turned post 9pm (that’s called Indian Stretchable Time). Jived a good amount until I was exhausted, then rested a while and jived some more 🙂 After a round of singing we descended upon the dinner. A. Anita‘s cooking is fabulous as usual. Reached home only around 12pm and immediately hit the bed. Had a great deal of problem waking…

    A Good Week Gone By…

    Am very pleased with an extremely productive week at work. Inspite of heavy rains that brought down Mumbai, work went on as usual. Have managed to meet both the deadlines that were set for this week. The card problems which were troubling so much last week have all been solved with three units ready for handover 😀 Next step involves some extensive testing which I hope to complete by next week. I haven’t had much personal time, because have been reaching home really dead the past few days and the rains haven’t helped too much. Got the weekend ahead already planned out to some extent. For one Saturday evening and…

    Leaving…and the story afterwards

    We are leaving work today at 3.00pm What I wonder now is what time will I actually reach home. I’m sure my internet at home is not working, so I may post feedback tomorrow… Not only was the internet down, but also the electricity in the area was turned off. We left and I was able to get a nice picture of the skyline outside our campus as you can see on the right. (Hint: Can be used as wallpaper) The journey home was quick because there was absolutely no traffic on the roads. BEST buses had stopped plying and most people were at home. Had to walk home through…

    Monday in the rains

    Woke up early Monday morning to find that the rains had only worsened. It has been pouring right from Saturday morning, so I have no doubt that a good portion of Mumbai is flooded. Finding a rickshaw was extremely difficult. Finally managed to convince a guy. Had to take a different route because M.I.D.C. area was badly flooded. I’m surprised how Sakshi manages to travel every single day to MIDC. She has to go through lot more waterlogged areas on her way from Juhu. I was fully clad in my new rain jacket and the rain pants as well as my floaters so I remained very dry all the way…

    I’m a little frustrated

    Ended up late in office yesterday because of a discussion on whom to handover the projects I am working and have worked on. Only once the handover is complete, will I be able to leave. That seems normal, except that hardware just refuses to work! Sometimes I guess life as a software designer would be a lot easier. Atleast I know that when something isn’t working as it is, then most probably it is a logic problem. Here, after verifying all the firmware and logic the damn hardware fails! At this rate, I really wonder when I am going to finish the handovers :((

    The Deed Is Done

    After much deliberation, discussion and consultation, I finally put in my resignation at Larsen & Toubro Ltd. It was a really hard decision to take. But, it will be for the best. I don’t know when I will be relieved, but I am hoping for the earliest so that I can hit my books. With that I am now a poor man… Any generous person like to support my work?

    A Nightmare in Public Transport

    Had to attend my Grandma’s birthday party last evening and since my bike was giving problems I decided to use public transport to get back home from work. Left my workplace a little after 3.30pm and hitched a ride with a colleague heading towards Thane. His plans changed and I had to get off at Rabale and find a bus or auto heading towards Airoli. For those who aren’t aware, the transport in Navi Mumbai SUCKS! After a good deal of waiting I a 513 arrived and I jumped in as it heads towards Mulund.

    Good Monday working

    Yesterday was a tiring day at work. Some module related issue needed to be sorted out. I haven’t worked on the module for over a year and being a lesser used one, no one else has either. Spent the entire day down in the shopfloor working on the module and the setup and just when I was getting ready to stay late, the module worked around 6.05pm. Wrapped up immediately and left for the day 😀 Reached home past eight and was really zonked. My bike still needs repair (story about this coming later). Hope to do it today.

    Weekend at last!

    I’ve had a nice long week at work. Rather packed and tiring and I don’t see it getting better and I am not complaining! Anyway, the weekend is here and I’ve already started making full use of it. Have quite a few things already planned up for the next two days. So lets see how things work out!
