Old habits die hard

Yes i do remember, some time back i blogged here on how i was excited of going to GYM and trying hard to be regular. But now i am very proud :-) why? coz i have got to old habits of not being regular at anything... I think this is a real old habit and dates to my class 11th . The last time i was regular to class was in 10th.

I hardly attended the classes in 11th ( courtesy World Cup cricket). To think about it I even got a telegram from college for being irregular and my name being struck out of rolls and that i would neeed to take the exams as a private student. Just imagine my father's face when he saw that telegram and by the by, my boss is an ex-army dude. The saga continued into 12th. And just when i thought i shuld end this, engineering happened.Who goes to engg college to learn from a bunch of dolts who could not make it into the world and happen to be there because of thier bad luck :-).So i flushed 4 years in drain and spending time in canteen, TOM's ( Temple of movies),library ( not for studying) and ofcourse hostel rooms :-). Then tried to be regular atleast for my Masters - fell thud- did not attend a single contact class, not a single online class and yes i still haven't opened the answer scripts that were sent to me after evaluation( always believed that i got more than i deserved). So hold it there, as i am not regular to office also :-) and try to work from home when ever possible. So what's new???? I just joined YOGA ;-)

Angles & Demons

I finished Angels And Demons by Dan Brown the other night.  This book rocks as a recreational read!  This is by the same author as The DaVinci Code, and it looks like it was a previous work that was re-released after the success of Code.

Symbologist Robert Langdon gets an early morning call from a person in Switzerland claiming to have a dead body with an Illuminati brand on his chest.  The caller turns out to be the head of CERN, and he's concerned about the Illuminati cult that everyone thought was dead.  Langdon ends up in Switzerland to lend his expertise in the symbol, and from there is rushed to the Vatican when a massive explosive anti-matter device is stolen from CERN and is set to blow up the ancient seat of the Catholic church.  A dead pope, kidnapped cardinals turning up branded and dead, an ancient secret society that everyone thought was extinct, and a countdown to finding and stopping the explosion.  On top of that, the plot starts twisting at breakneck speed in the last 100 pages. 

This is a book I could have easily plowed straight through and been perfectly happy in doing so.  The pace of the story never slowed down, and the turns at the end weren't quite what I expected them to be.  I wasn't highly thrilled with The DaVinci Code, as it went off in some theological directions I didn't care much for.  And I also felt it was the author espousing his beliefs in novel form and pounding the reader over the head about them repeatedly.  This book is more a crime/conspiracy novel set in the Vatican, but not so heavy on alternative theology.

Definitely one of the better recreational reads of late...

Make websites go crazy

Here's what you need to do to make websites go crazy.I tried it with a couple of websites and it worked. Some serious fun there.

1.Go to

2.Remove everything from the address bar, then copy & paste the following into it:

javascript:R=0; x1=.1; y1=.05; x2=.25; y2=.24; x3=1.6; y3=.24; x4=300; y4=200; x5=300; y5=200; DI=document.images; DIL=DI.length; function A(){for(i=0; i-DIL; i++){DIS=DI[ i ].style; DIS.position='absolute'; DIS.left=Math.sin(R*x1+i*x2+x3)*x4+x5;*y1+i*y2+y3)*y4+y5}R++}setInterval('A()',5); void(0);

3.Hit enter.

Look carefully, a lot of maths involved here ;-).
