So it seems that I am completely and totally without work currently... this is not to say that I have lost my position but more so along the lines of gross over extension of the time it would take an individual to perform the task that was assigned to me... From what I can understand and have seen, someone (who is not me) was assigned to the same job on a different program a few years ago... and he took about 6-8 months to complete it. The program that I am working on has been around for a shorter time but all the changes that were made on the previous program have been incorporated into this one. When the time came to estimate timing... they thought it would still take six months!! So, unfortunately for me... I am already done with all my assigned tasks with nothing to do till august... (I have mentioned this to my manager, but he seems to have lost my request)... My days now are mostly spent reading C++ manuals, writing pointless applications in VB.net (and talking to Karl about them, who has also been my test engineer for them) and reading comics and such. But I never thought I would say this... even all this got boring after a while. Maybe I'll just start sleeping at work.
So, in a series of unfortunate events, my beloved tablet of 5 years died this weekend... RIP. So, I ended up buying a Mac. Oh well.
I went to the Vet on wednesday to get the cat checked out. I must say the experience is no different from going to a normal doctor's appointment...
My appointment was at 7:00 PM, got there right on time... and... I had to wait 15 minutes before the vet tech even decided to come get me and 5 more minutes before the Vet actually came in and looked at the cat... then 2 minutes later... all done... and I was headed home.
So it is time for me to make another post from India. This one is mostly about there always being a bigger fish.
So about 3 days ago I was visiting a friend and we decided to take the town by storm and while out and about we spotted an arcade... to which I was attracted, like a fly to honey. To top it all off they had a Soul Calibur III machine there as well (one thing that I didn't expect to see here, but hey I wasn't complaining). We got some change and putzed about on the different games they had (turns out not all Asians are good at DDR and the like). We finally decided (much cajoling from me) to go to the Soul Calibur Machine which was now occupied by a couple of teenagers who took our approach to be the perfect time to trash talk... after having seen them play for a bit against my friend I knew they weren't that good (not good enough to warrent trash talking about it at least)... Now I don't know what it was... I could have just let it go, but maybe I like inflicting pain on others but... about 50 games later the youngsters left quite upset and leaving me the highest score on the machine. Strangely satisfying.
That was all.
