..of a peerless nincompoop

Life is like that

Life is busy like never before. Its almost a month since my boss talked to me. He never disturbs me when I am busy with work. Its rather funny that he doesn’t know what I am busy with. I won’t blame him. As a matter of fact, even I don’t know what I am busy with. It all happens in IT when you have great teammates. I am supposed to understand a piece of code, and then restructure it. The guy who wrote it belongs to the great school of thought that preaches flags are the next best things after sliced bread. True.. Why do they talk about state machines when you can get it done with umpteen flags? The small piece of code that I am supposed to modify contains nine flags. I don’t know what two of them are meant for. The author doesn’t know about another three. The rest four would suffice to get the task done. Incidentally, those four are not used anywhere after declaration.

It is this code that drives me to cricinfo, morning after morning.. after morning, for a little over four weeks. I hate it when work is humdrum. There was no ODI or test the day before, and cricinfo looked boring. After all, how much time can I spent on “March 14 down the years”? Yes, work has become monotonous suddenly. I need a change.. Blogging!! There you go. “Cogito, Ergo Sum” followed.

What do I write about in my first post? The day? It was a checkered day, an admit from UC Santa Cruz was followed by a reject from UC San Diego. No.. It’s not worth writing about. Last 24 years of my life? Does anyone need a definitive guide on how to waste so many years and be a nincompoop? Chances are less. If you really think you need one, watch this space later.

Now let me celebrate my newfound title, Kiron – The Blogger.
