After an excellent test match , this is what the two captians said

MS Dhoni “We executed the plans well”

Ricky Ponting “India were the rightful winners of the Border-Gavaskar Trophy”

India won the Border-Gavasaskar trophy today by beating the mighty Australians by comprehensive 172 runs. India won the series 2-0. Indian victory was on the cards right from day one as Sachin made a terriffic century with his popular heavy weight MRF bat. This was Sachin’s 40th test century and 10th against Australia. Though Sachin’s contribution has a great impact on today’s Indian victory , I would say that it was a definite team effort, which made sure that India would stand on the winning side during presentation ceremony. Its always difficult to beat the Australians and I am sure that today’s victory is something special to every Indian player and ofcourse to every Indian. This test is also the last test match for the former Indian captian Ganguly, who scored his maiden Test Hundred against England on his very first test match at Lords.

2007 Lifetime Achievement Award goes to N R Narayana Murthy

It may be a 1 year old news, but today a mail was forwarded to me with this below image which I am seeing for the first time, the message in this advertisement is simple, strong and clear. Being a engineer myself I strongly feel that most of us have an innovative trance embedded within our minds, by default , but which is never put to use to the fullest, by everyone. Guys like N.R.N are clear inspiring examples of achieving highness in life through sheer passion and focus towards our goals. I am glad that I worked for his passionate child Infosys Technologies Ltd.,

Happy B’day Computer Worm !!

Computer Worm turns 20 today.

Very first computer worm originated on Nov 2 1988, when Robert Tappan Morris tried to estimate the size of the internet by an self-replicating application. It was designed to propagate across Unix systems and exploited vulnerabilities to gain entry. But unfortunately his program had a bug and far more progation attempts were made , than it was necessary, causing the targetted machine to slow down or shut down, as his application consumed lot of system resources.

Right now Robert Tappan Morris is a  Professor at MIT and co-founder of Y-Combinator, a venture incubator that helps ignite promising startups.

Happy Birthday Bill !

William Henry Gates, III was born on October 28, 1955 in Seattle, Washington. Like him or not, he is the real Geek who deserves to be wished by each and everyone in this world.

Gates founded “Micro-soft” with Paul Allen in 1975. (The hyphen was dropped a year later.) Throughout the early years of the company. It is widely reported that Gates would review all of the code the company put out line-by-line, and would make changes to it as he saw fit.

Microsoft got its start by creating a BASIC interpreter for the Altair computer. It then formed a partnership with IBM to provide the PC-DOS operating system in 1980. In 1985, Microsoft Windows was first released to the retail public, and the rest, as they say, is computing history.
