I am leaving kgp but not for long. I'll be back on the 20th of june. There are a lot of things that I have to do before I leave. Here is the checklist for that:

Collect clothes from Minzo's room.
Give keys to Bhatu.
Get a shave and a haircut.
Collect Jane Eyre from Khatri.
Burn Jagjit Singh CDs for sis.
Burn Office XP for home.
and last but not the least... PACK.

I got exactly 3 hours to do all this. Lets see how I manage.
Will blog from home if the net is working.

I am going home on the 4th or may be on the 31st. It depends on whether I can get confirmed tickets for the 31st. But there is one thing... I am still not sure about going home. I mean.. What will I do at home. I am going to get terribly bored. The cable is out these days. The computer is not working. I am not allowed late night phone calls. Oh well.. I can play with my sister's kids. They will be there till the 10th but what happens after that? I think I will come back to kgp soon. Kharagpur has become like... I dont know what. I hate it here and I cant live away from here. Someone please talk some sense into me.

On the good side my project is nearly over. The eval will be conducted when I come back but as I have done a lot of work this time it shouldnt be a problem clearing that. If anyone of you wants the verilog code for AES encryption and decryption, mail me. Why do I feel that I am not going to get a single mail regarding this in my lifetime.

These days I am listening to a lot of DMB... thats one band that I neglected for a long time. Here is a list of songs that you should check out.

Track 41

Life's like that

/* Given below is the code for 1-bit subtractor. This happens to be my first code in verilog. I have to code in verilog for my project and the code will be somewhere around 1500 - 2000 lines. Atleast I have started. If any of you are experts in verilog please leave your Yahoo Messenger id. I might need your help */

module sub (x,y,z,D,B);
output D,B;
input x,y,z;
assign D = (~x & ~y &amp; z) | (~x & y & ~z) | (x & ~y & ~z) | (x & y & z);
assign B = (~x & y) | (~x &amp; z) | (y & z);

There is one more thing that I will like to add. Grown ups dont talk about potty that much. Sometimes they (hinting at someone in particular) dont even laugh at the potty jokes. How many of you feel comfortable with it? For those who do, here is one:

What does Sanjay Kapoor sing when he is sitting on a pot?

Aaati nahin....

Its THAT time of the year again

After lot of thinking I have decided to blog again but I don’t know for how long. Lots of things have happened in the past few days but they are not to be disclosed here. I am stuck in KGP again for the summer vacations because of my project work and also for the reason that I really don’t want to go home. The perks at home are AC room and good food but that comes with the downsides of staying at home like sleeping early and taking a bath before breakfast.

Let me clear something out first. I am a dual degree student at Kharagpur and I was supposed to pass out this year but because of some of the backlogs that I have I will pass out next year. I hope some of you can help me next year in getting a good job. I know I have screwed up and I don’t want any “awwww.. its ok” in this regard. My project is supposed to end by the end of this month. Let’s hope it does.

Many people have asked me as to why I don’t come online often these days. The fact of the matter is that I do come online but I remain in invisible mode, I just don’t feel like chatting anymore.

Things with my girlfriend are going fine at the moment but I am really scared because she is about to go on a trip in June for about a month. I don’t know how we are going to survive without any contact (no phones, mails, chatting, etc.) but I have faith in “us” and hope that we’ll get through with it.

I think its enough of “coming out” for today so adios my friends.
