What if it all ended soon? :(

54 days n counting .... have max fun... wat the hell!!!! ..

"naaluvarsham ayi orimichu ozighi kondu erruna e puzha eni 64 ya pirum" ( translation - the river that has been flowing together for the last 4 years wil now split up into 64 parts) ...

this was that i saw today morning on the board in our class... :-<>:) .. but wat the hell ... why should we have to keep a count on all tat?? it makes me n all o the rest o em so ... sad?.. no .. an understatement.. we all go all silent when we even think o it.... the college life is coming to an end... GOD NO!!!!!!!! wat the hell!

after all ... (agent) smith was right.. always right.... (i hate that tho) .. "everything that has a beginning has an end". No.. this aint fair (again smith says that {jus a statement} ) ... but its true after all..

well.. let me jus look a lil back ... 3.5 years back.... when I joined college.. I didnt have a very fun filled school life till the 9-10th std.. no steady friends n all... and then a REALLY strong friendship in 3 guys... well.. tat made my school-life fun.. and made me feel all upset when i had to give up the school life .. and move on to college... all those 3 were in different parts o the country... was all upset for the 1st few months o coll.. never really opened up to any1 .. shy ,as i am since 20 sep 1984, never really made gr8 friends.. then eventually ... as a rule o nature.. or somethin... i did make "friends" (then... ) .. in 3 ppl... (now my best friends).. after tat .. i never really felt like i missed school.. almost forgot abt it.. not my school friends tho...

Coll life wasnt all tat hip.... well..DUH.. its rajagiri after all... year 1 did give me these 3 really good friends... then in 2nd year... i added to those 3 .. one more... these 4 ppl form the core around which i am ... (no.. not tat i don have any other friends... i am virtually connected to all o em in my class.. and many in my coll... )..

oh again... these are all random thoughts... jus typing em in as them come to my mind....

well.. its final sem now.. and it was jus tat time when all o us were gettin really close to each other ... and right when it was all perfect... this message ... AGGRRH.. a scary reminder that the fun is going to end all too soon...

some might say - "the net is there".. "we are placed in the same company" .. no... once we leave this place.. its all going to change.. all this happened when school was gettin over as well.. barely few ppl keep in touch... :|

well... guess it has to happen someday... have to enjoy it while it lasts.. ... *HUGE SIGH*..



jus wish it stayed a bit longer......................

love ya all.. whoever is reading this....

The F-ing G5 mouse.

"d00d, u Fing spend Fing 4K on a Fing MOUSE????"

okai.. this is the the question (well.. variations too) i am asked always when they see me usin a black n orange colored mouse on the PC... it has a rough finish.. burnt look ... looks solid tho. this is my mouse - the logitech G5 Laser mouse.

for the uninitiated - check out this link : Logitech

this is, to an average user or newbie, a ergonomically shaped mouse that uses a LASER tracking system rather than the ball mosue from stone ages or the LED based mouse used today.. this is a mouse tat is going to be the standard of the future.

well.. plain n simple... i love technology. i brought a PC, an year ago.. i got the same q - u spend SO much on tat PC? .why?... i like havin a technology edge...

well.. coming back to the topic of the mouse.. its MADE for gaming. now again.. spending 4 k for gaming.. GOD... tats wat is probably comin to ur mind now.. well if u ask me .. its same as asking the cricket team why they use stuff that are so expensive.. u get a cricket bat for 300 bucks n also a bat tat costs 5 grand. so do u ask the same thing to a cricketer?..

okai.. another analogy... say.. u are takin an exam ... u want to get good marks ... and wanna be the best among the lot atleast. so wat can u do abt tat ...

1) study
2) have the rite stuff tat wil help u do well.. - good pen, pencils, compass, eraser, all tat...

so.. if u study well.. and don 've the rite stuff.. u can stil perform.. but definitely it wud be better if u had those. now when the students takin the exam along wit u are also equally well learned .. then the "rite stuff" wil really help.. (Obviously.. some1 wit the BEST stuff but no learnin... is going to be of no real challenege)

its somethin like tat... gaming requires a lot of skill,dedication n passion. but along wit that.. comes the need to have the rite stuff.
As i play better skilled players.. the RITE stuff helps compensate it.
Its SKILL + a good gear tat helps me be among the best i know, in person.

skill alone wil do when u are up against a weak opponent. but when ur opponent is equally skilled.. then the rite gear is needed.

so tat answers ONE part o the question i am being asked.

now there is another side to it. - money.
the mouse cost me... err.. my father - 4 grand. so is it worth it? .. well u jus gotta ask me friends who play against me.. or hell.. jus try me! and yes.. its worht every single penny spent on it.

one negative side tho - its ADDICTIVE .. it offers so much control, accuracy and the response is so fast... (to the ppl who know wat to do wit it..its not jus clicking... there is lot more, trust me.). Gaming was never more fun.
