Phone conversation lengths

March 13, 2010

I felt, recently that while speaking to ppl after a long time, there are hardly things to talk..

duration of phonecall per rate of phonecall

Now, have you felt it? Why is it so? My hypothesis is that when looking at life in a long-term perspective, there’ll be little that is off-average which can be spoken about. Of the short term, the variance will be more.

creates world-class photo collages – the feature I liked most

friends bonazaa. week after VTU exams

July 14, 2008

Been meeting a lot of old friends over the past few days. It was some experience. Most were friends I hadn’t met in about 3-4 years.

who they are –

Arkanath – Call him up if you wanna stand for the next elections.  😀
Gopal Krishna – watch out ! This guy could design an original india sports car one day
Jai kumar – jai! His electronic hacks could be the first waves to shake hands with extraterrestrials
Pradeep – fun dude took law after preparing for IIT. Next chidambaram ?
Kruthika – can tell you 3 days newspapers contents in either 1 min or in 100 hrs
Shilpa – OMG! One disadvantage of having some readership on this blog – I can’t write true stuff on this line [oh, don’t tell me it’s a paradox. That’ll cause a deadlock (same line)]
Hari prasanna – simplicity personified! Watch him take the plunge for he know when to dive.

didn’t meet. Did talk
Vaishnavi – mortal as we are, what’s it that we’r living for! Hope is the pool, and life is the tool!
Sid – felt like I did meet him. with his poems . Sid’s siddantha (blogroll on the right)
Vinay – ditto. As with sid, Must sign a deal for a copy of all books he’ll publish. It’ll be worth millions one day. Vinya’s vinidictions

It’s a joy to meet friends. at the end, isn’t it the point of life ?

go through your phone book and find two numbers that are closest to each other!

yeah i understand the complexity. don’t tell O(n) or O(n^2).

i got one with a difference of 7!

wrt the one mentioned above, i’ll give you a hint. one’s a prolific linux user in NITK and command line freak! 😀

find the other!

Vision : World domination
