Rent A Guest

19 Sep

As I read this, I’ll have to say that it cannot get any more innovative(weird?) than a rent-a-guest agent.

Short Notes

16 Sep

And just as this hiatus comes to an end, I’d like to let all know that this was not a result of mundanity. Things were moving at quite a pace and yet, somehow didn’t fall into the category of weblog content.

India finally managed to win something at Cricket. Defeating Zimbabwe by an innings and 90 runs may not be the achievement one would be envied for, but with the way our royalty (read star cricketers) have been performing, I’d say it does classify a bit into something worth getting deliriously happy for.

More Cricket. England finally finally claimed the Ashes. The whole Aussie outfit surrendered to the Flintoff-Pieterson duo in a manner none would have predicted at the beginning of the series. And while this made some ecstatic, one cant simply admire the way the Aussies threatened to turn it all around, all on the last day.

I have officially reached the conclusion that there cannot be made a movie that actually bores me.

Gates on Google:

[Google] have this slogan that they are going to organize the world’s information. Our slogan is that we are going to give people tools to let them organize the world’s information.

And finally, this site needs a new template. I have been thinking about it for a while now and I might just sit down and finally stop procrastinating.

Much ado about Doodle. Thumbs down to Google

1 Sep

I have been doodling during classes all through my high school and the habit has hardly betrayed me in the University. And yet, ever so cruelly, none of my doodles seem to have made ANY impact at all, especially when you compare them with the ones by Gates at Davos or by Ofir at Israel!

And, MSN Search rocks! I had to dig out this link about Gates and Davos Doodles which I had posted way back in the beginning of the year. Apparently, the BloggerBar (powered by Google) at the top of this blog is supposed to search this Blog. But it yielded NOTHING.

Google search for the keywords “Gates doodles enginerd” returned exactly Two (2) results which were way off target.

And then I tried MSN Search. The same keywords. Four results:
The first: Link to the exact Post.
The second:
Link to the-enginerd’s February archives.

MSN Search just found a new fan!

Blog Day 2005

1 Sep

Blog DaySeptember 1, 2005. Thousands of Bloggers yesterday could be seen linking to their blogkins celebrating the BlogDay 2005. Prasoon, an avid Blogger told our correspondent about how the date 3108 (August 31st) reads like the word “Blog”.

Our correspondent traced the history of Blog Dayback to June 21, 2005 when Nir Ofir posted about it on his blog on the same date. It has been learnt from reliable sources that Mr. Ofir had, in fact, noticed the resemblance between “3108” and “Blog” while doodling at the first Blog conference that was held in Israel.
