Assembling my own Desktop

For a very long time I have been thinking of assembling a desktop. I never really had a home computer, did not need one.

Wherever I read about assembling a desktop it seemed a really easy thing to do….mostly they would is like putting together a jigsaw puzzle together.

After doing some thorough research on you tube and various technology blogs I was kind of ready…the moment had come. I will have a home computer and I will assemble it. So it is said so let it be done!!!

Well, continuing my research on the net I found this wonderful site of a shop in BangaloreBinwaryworld in Indiranagar BDA complex. The shop appears pretty workman like, does not impress on looks. But their website is mind blowing and in the shop they get all the stuff you need.

Reviewer’s on the net said their prices were the best…I did some prelim checks on eBay and a few other sites and found this to be true.

So on 13th April’10 (14th April was a holiday) I went from office to purchase all the stuff…thanks to the net and BW’s own website I knew exactly what I wanted.

At INR 24,053/- I got all the parts to assemble a Pentium Core 2 Duo, 1GB RAM, 500GB HDD with Logitech webcam, iBall speakers, UPS and Samsung LCD monitor. Within that price I also got a toolkit though I knew only the basic Philips screw driver would be needed.

It took me some 4 hours and a lot of constant cross checking on the net to get there. And I did. Check out the pictures.

Kissing is overrated.

Yes. Kissing is overrated. Think about it. There is just about too much brouhaha (wow….finally I got to use the word)… about kissing these days….and to think that people have been kissing for ages.
What is it about kissing that gives rise to so many controversies?

So I have tried to do some research (which really means I googled a bit) and have tried to understand some of the kisses that come readily to mind…:-

Judas Kissing Jesus:-

Legend has it that Judas, to finger Jesus to the Roman soldiers, kissed Jesus on the cheek. Its strange bordering on yickee… Either people were really weird those days or someone made this up later. I mean, think about it, if you wanted to finger out a person you would probably ...well..use your finger and point at him…or maybe if you wanted to be discreet just make that meaningful movement of your eyes….or if you really hated him…throw a stone…but kiss him…who would do that?

Now moving 2 thousand years forward:--

It is the pornography that binds us!

On the verge of stepping onto the wrong side of 30, many memories flit by, not all pleasant. Of the memories that are pleasant, the ones from my days in school, standout.

I passed my 12th Std in 1991… from one of the not quite leading schools of Calcutta…sorry….Kolkata. It was a Kolkata without today’s multiplexes and shopping mall. For better or for worse, Lindsay Street, Chowringhee, Park Street were still the most happening places in the city and school days were much different from what they would be now, at least in one aspect.

The difference was pornography…or more accurately, the availability, sharing and quality of it. Yes, the wonderful, stimulating and informative world of pornography was different then.

Those were the days when the internet was unheard of…a VCR (or the cheaper VCP) was a possession of pride… to be found in only a few privileged households in the neighbourhood or for that matter in our circle of friends… and the colour TV….though catching on was still a novelty…

Go Serena go!!!

At the outset, if you are a tennis fan and you are reading this post hoping to know more about Serena William’s Bangalore trip, my apologies. This post is not about the tennis star but about Serena, the now famous Japanese model.

“The bikini model, who goes by her professional name Serena Kozakura, was cleared after a court decided she was too well-endowed to squeeze into a room through a hole.”
“In her appeal, the defense counsel held up a plate showing the size of the hole and said that she could not squeeze through with her 110cm bust.”Read full report.

How unimaginative of the defense counsel. He should have held up a plate showing young Miss Kozukura’s twin assets alongside a plate of the hole.

Also let me try to visualize the court scene.

Defense Counsel: My Lord, Counsel shall prove to the court that the defendant is wrongly accused. Counsel requests permission to present exhibit 1.

Judge (drooling): Ahem….is exhibit one really the dual wonders on display?
