I came across this topic during one of my recent journal reviews..Its quite interesting to learn how the internet plays a part in our lives. There is a demarcation between the use of internet as a source of livelihood and for entertainment purposes..

Top 10 Signs You're Addicted to the Net :

[In a narrow sense, Would the signs mentioned below be applicable to bloggers as well ??]

10. You wake up at 3 a.m. to go to the bathroom and stop and check your e-mail on the way back to bed.
9. You get a tattoo that reads "This body best viewed with Netscape Navigator 1.1 or higher."
8. You name your children Eudora, Mozilla and Dotcom.
7. You turn off your modem and get this awful empty feeling, like you just pulled the plug on a loved one.
6. You spend half of the plane trip with your laptop on your lap...and your child in the overhead compartment.
5. You decide to stay in college for an additional year or two, just for the free Internet access.
4. You laugh at people with 2400-baud modems.
3. You start using smileys in your snail mail.
2. The last mate you picked up was a JPEG.
1. Your hard drive crashes. You haven't logged in for two hours. You start to twitch. You pick up the phone and manually dial your ISP's access number. You try to hum to communicate with the modem.
You succeed.

Sibiraj & Namitha pairs together in Kovai Brothers

Namitha has acted in many movies with Satyaraj as the lead actress. Now Satyaraj's son acts with her... No wonders if she would act as Satyaraj's Mom in a few years from now....God Bless Tollywood !!

Articles covered in Kumudam Mazagine (Issue dt.Oct 12,2005 ) ::VijayaShanti's Political venture, Gopika's autograph,Interview with SriPriya ,Yuvan Shankar Raja,Shalini and Kushboo..++ film reviews .. Same is the case with Vikatan too..

I think there ain't any famous personalities than these people in TamilNadu..I blame myself for subscribing to these magazines ..and wonder what would i gain by knowing about these people and what they eat or when they shit ?

மாத்தி யோசி !!

I found this article@CNN to be relevant to my earlier post which discusses about the timid nature of Desis...

Though the points mentioned below cannot be generalized, IMHO, majority of Desis are like this :

1. You let others' mistakes inconvenience you.
2. You let others take credit for your ideas.
3. You apologize unnecessarily.
4. You work without breaks.
5. You do others' work for them.

I concur with this fellow blogger's view. What do you say ??

Super 307 307 307...

Oh..Things weren't moving smooth for me..seems like Murphy's law is taking its toll on me !!

. Posted by Picasa

Received my mobile phone bill for this month..a whooping $307.32 for calls which i didnt make.I have taken NYC Metro 1000 minutes plan but most of my calls were picked by a tower in upstate NY(some 500 miles away from NYC),and roaming and long distance charges were calculated for it. Its like ,a call made at 4.05 pm appeared as local call whereas a call made at 4.08pm appeared as roaming.I was very much in the city during this period and didnt go anywhere..
WHAT it means to be on phone with customer service guys ,explaining my case on mid weekday afternoon for about 4 hours ??? These guys argue with me that i was at upstate and hence the charges..The reason is their technical error as the tower picks wrong signals and processes them.I was trying to settle this issue and finally compromised on an amount..still came upto $120 instead of my usual $70..

Any suggestions on how should i have handled this case ??

Just googled to check if anyone had an experience like mine..Yeah.. Am not alone !!
A guy from this company calls me every evening from Bangalore,speaks in Tamil ,canvassing me to take up this plan..Am trying to be good with him..its not good to bang the phone or to snub anyone..but LIMITS TO PATIENCE..Im trying to be nice with him..Hope he understands..
Been to a luggage center at a mall here (Desi infested Queens boro)to pick a suitcase for my friend who plans a trip to India shortly.As we billed the item,the sales person asked us sarcastically "Will you guys return the case after your trip to India ?? " MAANAM POCHU..
Couple of things can be inferred from this incident :
1.Many Desi's been returning items like this..hence this comment !
2.Even genuine customers are suspected !!
Been to SBI-NY for remittance to India.I waited for about 30 minutes to meet with person concerned.With every passing by employee as am seated in the waiting room, i heard the statement.."Somebody is coming"..finally someone came over..My Uncle,whoz been here since early 70's says that the bank used to work the Indian way in their early years..Closed for a week during Pongal and for all Indian holidays,But they are doing business in USA...
This happened few days back ::After roaming the city the whole day with my friends,we decided to stop at an Indian Restaurant for dinner located b/w 6/7 Avenues in NYC.We looked very tired.Just as we entered, we overheard the manager say "aadmilog dekhke patha chalega woh kya khayega"..Totally unwarranted comment..Does he estimate that Madarasis doesnt know Hindi ? Just walked out after a duel with him..When will people learn to respect fellow country men ?
