If you, like me, cant do without your daily dose of dilbert you must hate the new site redesign. Even the email they send to me is now overloaded with hajaar images, mashups, flash and what not.
Well the best thing about Scott Adams is that he's a geek somewhere far down. So for all of us, he created (or got created) Dilbert Fast. Welcome to hassle free Dilbert!

any man who can hitch the length and breadth of the galaxy, rough it, slum it, struggle against terrible odds, win through, and still knows where his towel is is clearly a man to be reckoned with.
The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy.
I'm celebrating towel day. I have a brand new pink cloth towel around my nape as I walk around at home. Hopefully I'll get a picture to show to you guys.
All the info about celebrating Towel Day can be found here. Go ahead, and join in!

This came via Wordsmith today.
After Ambrose Everett Burnside (1824-1881), who served as a general in the
Union Army in the American Civil War, and who earned more recognition for his
side whiskers than for his military career. Eventually the term burnsides
morphed into sideburns as such a facial pattern was on the sides of a face.
They're doing five words about facial hair this week. I cant wait for the rest!
Ok, Ok. For people who know me IRL, this should've been up a long time back. Anyway, I have got into IIM, Calcutta. And taking this as an inspiration I have decided to blog about this separately. Unfortunately this means that blogging here will be sporadicer than ever. I don't mean it to be this way, but going by the famous no-time-to-breathe schedule that one has to follow in the IIMs, I dont think I will have time to do justice to both, and in that case, esp. for IIMC related stuff that blog will get precedence,
Of course, I love this blog and could never let it go. (Even though I forgot it's 4th birthday on the 30th of March). I shall return here from time to time, so don't delete the feeds for this blog in a hurry.
But definitely say hi to my new IIMC blog! The RSS feed is available too.

I've been slacking off on my blogging recently. I promise I shall return.
Anyway, you can enjoy this Robbo column till then.
In all the uproariously funny lines that he writes, he makes a point that I will never forget. Talking about Ronnie O'Sullivan he writes,
"If you judged a sporting entertainer by the number of times you gasped at what he did ..."
I'm going to be using that barometer.
