So… what’s been happening?

with 2 comments

Yes, it’s true – I did sleep for over 27 hours at one go.
I remember closing my eyes at 4 am on 14th of August only open them at 7:55 am of 15th.

I’ve been attending classes, trying my best not to miss any. LT601 – Introduction to Lasers, by H. Wanare is an interesting course. The course outline says:

You will be penalized 1% of the total for a missed lecture below the 80% gross attendance with a maximum of 15 %. Any absence can be condoned only when you have obtained official leave from the DUGC/DPGC.

Well, not a bad deal given that the classes are at 10 am (thank god it isn’t 8)

PSY458 – Organisational and Administrative Psychology. The professor is a cool one. Lectures are mostly interesting.
CS455 – Introduction to Software Engineering, by TVP. A lot of talk happens in the one-and-a-half hour lectures. The professor is easily derailed and it isn’t a good thing.

As part of the CCCC in the campus, we had a meeting yesterday and the CC would like to get hold of around 20 students who’ll need to make themselves useful for managing various issues in the CC after the recent Gymkhana decisions on LAN ban and stuff.
Did I mention that Navya will be getting a /new/ server with 8GB ram and a dual core AMD64 with somewhere around 350GB storage? 😀 Server class!

Later in the evening we had a Navya meet and spread the good news. Kapil Shukla, an alumni showed up. He was delighted to see the state of Navya. A lot of things have been happening – LDAP, Jabber, and so on. We’ve not publicised them well enough to get a sizeable user-base yet. That should happen soon.

Another day/night in the campus

with one comment

Summer in Kanpur is like life in Mordor. Hot air brushes your skin while you cycle back to your room as if it were dining off your skin. On Wed, May 23rd, I woke up at 11am after having slept for 4 hours and attended both classes. I fell asleep as I was watching DBZ ep 216 at around 6pm 😐
I had turned off the fan at 5pm when I realised that it was only blowing the hot air from the upper portion of my room down on to my semi-clad body. I did sweat a bit but I soon understood that this was the best way to beat the heat. Sleep took over me from 6pm to 1:57am 😦
(that means no dinner :X). Dressed up as soon as I woke up and brushed my teeth and went down to fill up water. That damned cooler was broken I guess – it gave out warm water 😦
My BRU Ice Cappuccino preparation didn’t work out well because of this 😦
So, here I am, commenting on others’ blogs and blogging 😉
