(1/gogool )th % deviation

It is universal truth that google generates most of its revenues thru ads. But it's ad campainining is so far the best i've ever noticed ,ofcourse hutch is the second one.Any new product it launches it just provides a link on it's website,thatz it!!,the product is an instant hit(the quality of the product is the main reason though).When it had to recruit people it has simply provided a link "we are hiring" in it's home page.when i saw an ad in news paper which said "we are looking for people who can change the face of the world". I read in time magazine that to recruit, google displayed a billboard on the road to silicon valley showing "first ten digit prime number formed from the succesive digits of e .com" any one who could solve the riddle and type it in the browswer gets a call from google .evry thing google does is quite innovative.
but yesterday when i saw an ad for freeadwords i felt disappointed not that it was a sin to give an ad like that,but i expect every thing google does must be out ofthe box.

life has its own way of masti

"For the goat's tail, the goat is the tail. For the goat, its tail is the goat's tail, but for the tail the goat itself is the tail".
this Tenali Rama's poem is no joke and is perhaps one of his sweetest gifts to mankind to enjoy humour in almost any kind of situation. His prescription is: look at anything from the wrong or the opposite side of things. You can then see the comical aspect of things or situations you earlier thought were grave.
It is quite unlikely for us to have parties when end-sems are 2 weeks away.while coming back we landed up in a horrifying situation. i'll post the entire story some other time.but we had an amazing time at the parties.

hacking lessons at technical institution!!!

Drishtant team as promised arranged a guest lecture by Ankit Fadia,a name well associated with Ethical hacking...well he'z just as much as my age but his lecture was simply superb.He put forward the hacking tricks.most of the stuff went above my head(exact translation of hindi phrase..).but i liked the presentation.Even after an eloborate hacking lecture i cudn't figure out how to get to see pics on my orkut(which have been blocked here for no particular reason!!)
finally to measure the magnitude of the success - all the seats were outsold for his hacking course,which he is conducting online
