Yep.At last a fulfilling day after coming back to KGP.
Yesterday I got my computer up and running(it has to be put that way,because of the unorthodox way that my comp came into existence!!!).Only the monitor had to be connected and there it was.Up and ready...all the 8GB required for putting it on sharing...And as a new comp would,this did have its effect on me...requiring me to sleep at 4:30am today morning.
Well,all this intro to enter 'The Day', the 4th of January,2007.So,it began. And as the new Spring semester time table would have it, our class starts at 7:30 am. It required some efforts from friends to wake me up.A mere 2 hr sleep is extremely insufficient on a winter day.
Well it was PDS(Programming and Data structures) class and I didn't want to miss the class.So up and quickly to the class 'we' went.And the class was far below expectations and the day seemed far from what the post-head says.The class was followed by Mechanics,another subject that I hated through my class 11 and 12.It only made things worser.But only until the next prof came.What was expected to be a boring lecture on SHM turned out to be very interesting more due to the way it was being treated...'damped oscillations really give beautiful graphs' was what I was thinking midway.A one hour break was given with perfect timing and it was a relaxing period topped with an interaction with a senior. Now a class in the new GSSST building.Mathematics!!! What would be on offer this semester! It was to be matrices...no simple things these.As words like 'three diagonal matrix' and other words(I don't even remember them now :-/) flew out of the profs mouth it was our turn to stare back at him in excitement(and for some,disgust...lol...god save those who hate math and took up engineering).Phew!One hour passed by and we were back to our hall for lunch.
No afternoon classes only meant I would not give up the seat in front of the comp and so it was to be.
Back in KGP with a comp is proving to be a real good thing.With an obvious distraction being the network gaming scene here it is to be seen if I give into the temptation.
This semester has unwoven itself beautifully and it is to be seen what it has to give me (and what I have to give up...fun!?).With Kshitij and Spring Fest lined up back to back in Feb., surely this is a semester to watch out for!
And to end this post in my style(hope to develop one with this blog and post),I must tell you some geek humor...
The famous Murphy's Laws of Computing
1. When computing, whatever happens, behave as though you meant it to happen.
2. When you get to the point where you really understand your computer, it's probably obsolete.
3. The first place to look for information is in the section of the manual where you least expect to find it.
4. When the going gets tough, upgrade.
5. For every action, there is an equal and opposite malfunction.
6. To err is human . . . to blame your computer for your mistakes is even more human, it is downright natural.
7. He who laughs last probably made a back-up.
8. If at first you do not succeed, blame your computer.
9. A complex system that does not work is invariably found to have evolved from a simpler system that worked just fine.
10. The number one cause of computer problems is computer solutions.
11. A computer program will always do what you tell it to do, but rarely what you want to do.
