Am I the one?

This is to officially announce that I am in search of a new job :). I know its so called recession but Software are still getting built and New Operating System (OS) is getting release. BTW if you don’t know what is an OS? A simple answer will be window Xp and Vista are examples of OS.

I just had a thought am I the one who will actually come to know “How does it feel to be jobless at all the time of recession?” I lost my first job when recession was a newly-coined term for the Indians. The Indian share market were going strong, and rumors of US crisis were a thing we people used to joke about and Bang!! came the termination letter. When my friends and family asked what happened i told them i am the one of the first indian victim of recession.

It was luck that I landed up in my present company just days before of Great Market Crash of January 2008. Within a year the real recession kicked into effect and my company planned to send 10% of its work force of Forced Leave. It was my bad luck that i was one among those 10%.

Now i have got a real serious problem in front of me. Its not Money Money is a problem but not as serious as the one i am facing now. And that is . What will i say to people when they will ask me why i thrown?

Emosanal

If you have deciphered the post name than i can safely classify you in one of the two category.  First that you know me well. (Or should i say very well). And the second category will be that you are of the my league in Spelling Bee. I still rememeber that after writing “language and diction test” (In simple english Spelling test) for the fourth time i was give 4 out of 20.  Dont ask me the mark of first 3 attempts.

But the thing is after reading one full para on spelling and stuff and you are not able to decipher the post name than please download the song the listen to it.

No i am not at all doing any promos for Anurag Kashyap’s Upcoming film Ded. D which is claimed to me made as modern version of Devdas. I wish to ask mr Anurag Kashyap “Why?” had we not enough of these remakes that you doing a mordern remake of the movie. But than on the other hand i think if shahrukh khan can do it than why not abhay deol. (Mind you i have heard guys calling him cute. and it wasn’t me)

It seems that the title of the post has become more important than the post it self. Just look at it 3 paras over and we are yet to get out of the post title and why such a title. the reason being I never thought that i am an emotional guy and i will ever be.

But of late i have shown all the emotions i can think of.

  1. Funny – Some of my posts are a testimonial to it.
  2. Bore – Read point one
  3. Sad – After i saw my CAT score just now.  Its 73.29 Percentile.
  4. Happy – I never attended any coaching classes and saved 20 thousand rupees
  5. Anger – The last post on SMAM was written because i was angry (I dont know how it turned out to be happy post)
  6. Depression – when i missed her

Just let me know of any other emosion and i will add them too. Now the time for our super hit song. BTW this song has got what we will a Brass Band beat. For the unknown the brass band is the band which mostly plays at marriage.

Download It from here

I will give my life for you. ‘Cos I don’t know what is a prayer.

This is to formally announce that I have bought a MP4 Player. At last. The Google(yeah i call search and google in the same breath) was on for last 2 years for a durable yet cost efficient. I planned to buy one of the guys from Transcend stable or SanDisk. But after reading the reviews the sounded like more of a mediocre than a full fledged or great PMP. Then I went for the guys who revolutionized the product Apple Computers. But they were too costly. So the last option was to choose a product which was cost effective yet great. Thus came 3 players Phillips, Samsung and Creative. Out of which Samsung is not available in India. I was searching for a minimum of 2 GB video capable PMP. But when I saw the Creative Zen 4 GB it was much better than the others. Some of the online reviews said its just a little below the famed iPod Nano. So I went ahead and bought from the product from http://ebay.in. Though I am yet to get the product in my hands hope that the product is as good as the reviews say. To be on the safer side I have even bought a pair of Creative Ep-630 earphones to go with the product.

The song above is one of the songs I am planning to listen . Thus this post. :)

Klued

This is the time of year when the web is filled with frenzy thanks mostly to the holiday season and people are busy surfing for gifts, e-cards, booking last minute tickets and remembering the ones they have forgotten for Loooooooooooong. For me it was again the same time of the year when some like and unlike minded people come online to crack Klueless. For the uninitiated this a game which can be addictive and frustrating. Can lead to sleep, food and work deprivation. So be careful. Its the 4th version of the game and hence named Klueless 4. Its an online treasure hunt type of game where you are given the link to the first page and are required to find the rest of the pages. For rules visit Klueless.

Yeah i have finished the game and ranked 39 with Abhishek of IBM Pune .The link to the famed hall of fame. Last year it was 372nd rank

Here are a set of hints for those who are stuck.

Level 0.  Simply Click

Level 1. What do you want to do?

Level 2. Universal Resource Locator is thy name.

Level 3. If you have attended your english classes you finish this level

Level 4. No one was before him. He was the first.

Level 5. Find the CORRECT link and look out for “power of .. ”

Level 6. Who is he?

Level 7. This One is really simple. It has two part first complete the series than you have use the image name to fill the answer.

Level 8. This one had me thinking. Solve the poem and find what is being talked about and just name him. Most of the things point to just one thing. (It has got a two word answer)

Level 9. The gibberish here is language in it self find the language and you are done :)

Level 10.  FInd the couple who are missing and give them a single name.

Level 11. Find the thing talked about and its original location

Level 12. This one makes you think alot. my advice find the geomatrical figure. and than try relating it to the perosn.

Level 13. Secret of 52 helps alot.

Level 14. With Regards. The source clue may help

Level 15. This has 3 part and to solve the the 3 part start with door 3 than door 1 and than door 2

Level 15c: You can find the answer in2 ways either by decoding the poem or by looking at the pic. If you cobine the both than  its the fastest way.

Level 15a. look up and find me.

Level 15b. WHy are you here. Go back in time.

Welcome to upperechelon!! You have completed 15 levels. BTW this was the level where Abhishek Joshi joined me on Gtalk and we started solving this together. BTW i must say Abhishek is a great guy with a superb mind.

Level 16. Convert everything that can be converted to chat language. and than apply the formulea.

Level 17. The first level where the hint can lead you to wrong path all together. Its just the first half of the hint that matters.

Level 18: Solve the first two questions and than do a simple search on the answer. Abhishek found out the answers and I found the way to solve

Level 19: FInd names of the all the things shown. and than Say Yahoo! (i found the name of the fish and abhishek gave us the answer :) )

Level 20. This was really easy and it took us less than 10 minutes to come up with  an answer. Found the river name and voila we were done.

Level 21. This has got two things to do. One is to to change the URl and than do as the new url askes you to. Again Abhishek came to rescue :)

Level 22. Whats common between I and J

Level 23. Instead of finding the cipher just rack your brain and you will know the answer. BTW the answer is not Prudential

Level 24. Find who was laid to rest. You will find his worth there.

Level 25. This one was the toughest. It took us more than 6 hours. We searched from calc help to notepad help. But than the it came to our mind to search for the name of the pic and webpage title. and putting 2 and 2 together gave us the key. And abhishek gave the answer. It was morning 6 so said we called it a night, errrr morning.

Level 26. An unsolvable level with same sort of answer. 

Level 27. What does X and Y stand for. You are Cordially asked to Orient. Again abhishek came to rescue.

Level 28. Who framed what. BTW there are loads of false pointer so just select what is need. Abhishek solved the level the and gave me the answer

Level 29. I think the last levels clue was for this level. If you have solved the clue than think how to relate the solved answer to last levels clue. BTW dont use the clue directly. If you have got the meaning of the image than use the image name to solve this level. This level was helped to me 

Level 30. Abhishek found the answer by fluke and we than went to search how was the answer related to the clue. Find the differences. the most simplest hint will “look differently.” 

For the techies here is another hint.
while(1)
{

find diffrence.
