Now that I have bored you enough, let me bore you a little more. Let me explain to you each and every term that I mentioned above.

Now, had I been yapping infront of a live audience, most of them would be asleep by now, but thats the real beauty of blogspot, I cant see you, so I can yap my way to glory. The last time I tried explaining stuff to my sister, she got so annoyed that she locked me up in the spare bathroom(we have a huge house). I was in there for 3 days. I lost 5 kgs and my biceps are now 26" down from the usual 28".
On second thoughts, I think, I shouldnt be taking the risk of explaining to you guys the basics of computers, simply coz, I have a lot of female readers(all 3 of them), and they might end up doing to me what my sister did so successfully.

But I wish to share with you this incident that happened a few years ago. We- me and my college friend C- (on the rare days we attended college) were sitting in the computer lab in college.
C noticed that the PC's 80 Gb ram was full. Obviously, the official data, data as in Visual basic, C, C++ programs, excel sheets, word files etc was only 214Kb. There were around 50Gb of movies, 10Gb of episodes of 'Police chases gone wrong' and the rest were, well, hidden in the system 32 folder! Why hidden? If you are an engineer, then you know!

So C wanted to save this "important file"- 'comedy scenes from Marathi movies' on the drive. Personally, I dont see the need to watch comedy. Our college and professors provided generous offering of comedy. The file was around 1 Gb. "Disk full" popped up on the screen.

C: Abbe? Kya faltugiri hai! 80Gb hard disk bhi full ho gaya!
Arshat (Me): Aisa kya store kiya hai bey hard disk pe?
Check kar... Phir delete kar
Tere ko yeh comedy scenes kyun store karne ka hai lab PC pe?
Arre nahi toh bahut bore hota hai lab mein..
Already stored hai na movies, woh dekh...
Sab english movies hai... Aur ek bhi comedy movie nahi hai...
Hmm.. (Going through the Pc) Kitna movies hai bey!
50Gb ka movies hai
10 Gb ka Police chases hai
50+10=60. Baki 20 Gb kya hai?
Arre programs, word files, excel files... kaam kiya hoga public ne..
Pagal hai kya? Itna kaam? Yeh dekh 214Kb kaam kiya hai sirf.
Toh baki 20Gb kya hai?
Ruk, files hidden hai..
Yeh kya hai. Saale System 32 ka files hai.
Itna Gb nahi hai System 32.
We played the first "hidden" file.
Shit.. shittt... bannnd kar saaleeee..
Arre ruk na.. ruk na..
Abbe koi aayega toh..?
Arre computer lab hai! Kaun aata hai yahan pe?
Saaleeee... band kar...
Abbe apaan ne thodi load kiya hai yeh sab files... Chal tere liye window chota karke dekta hoon..
The door opened.
Banndd kar saaalleeee...
Saying that I turned the switch of the spike guard off.
The door opened. We feared the worst. What if someone had heard the sound of the hidden movie. The probability of that was low though, the lab was AC and a thick door quarantined the room.
A girl entered. Probably a senior. Maybe from computers. I take this guess coz they had many pretty girls in IT and computers.
Thampi Sir?
Umm.. no, he's not here.
What are you guys doing?
We are working.
But the computer is turned off.
We were going to turn it on.
She gave us a look of suspicion and left.
Chal fir se On karte hain
Shot mat de saale.
Projector connect karte hai kya?

Ah.. lovely days those were. Wonder if they will ever come back. Sometimes I wonder if we should have connected the projector. What would be the maximum penalty if we were caught? Was it worth the risk? How would it be to watch it on a projector? I guess I will never find out.

Anyway, this post got really senti for all the wrong reasons, I meant to write this post to update you on my laptop status(Not tht you care or anything). I have shared so many things with you, thought should share this too!

I make it sound like I am getting married!

Update: Inspite of the gentleman that I am, I forgot to thank all my friends who helped me zero in on this laptop - Hiren aka Lamda, Rishikesh Bhise, Chaitanya Aathyle, Ameya Sohoni, Nupur.. Thank you guys. You rock :) Yours is here: Dell Inspiron 1545SocialTwist Tell-a-Friend

    first why is it that girls wont like to listen to computers? Wasnt that a sexist sentence?
    I think U mean 80 GB (not Gb i.e. Gigabyte not gigabit) hard disk (not ram which is RAM btw) was full.
    Congrats on the new Laptop.U have the same typos in specifications too.

    hehehe.. dunno bout tht!
    Thanks :)

    @pretty me
    I thought so!

    Join the club mate!

    Oh.. I meant that as a joke (that is why the mention of 3 readers.. there are a lot more than that, there are 7 female readers of this blog)

    Porn? Where did I mention porn? One dirty brain u have dude! :P
    Will meet for sure.. Time mila toh call kar saale

    Glad I could add to your information :P

    Sure! Thanks :)

    @opinions and expressions
    Pray, tell me, how in the world was that sentence sexist!!?
    If you find that sexist it means - *You think not liking listening about computers is lowly. That in itself is faulty line of thinking. Most of my male friends dont like talking about designer shoes, does that in anyway make us men lowly in anyway? I wonder if saying - "Men might not like listening to the latest trend in shoe fashion" make me a sexist!!

    About the Gb and stuff, well I wrote the post in around 15 minutes flat. I dont pay much attention to grammar, so forget paying any respect to computer lingo :P

    Around 50% of the guys who read this blog are engineers, most of them work for IT companies, but even they didnt bring all these typos to my notice. Actually, I myself cud have changed the typos had i read my post again, but I didnt get time. I thank you for bringing all these typos to my notice :) But not gonna change anything, am too lazy for tht! :P

    Btw - "first why is it that girls wont like to listen to computers?" You mentioned first, but what is the second?? :P

    You should have connected it to the projector man!! Do it the next time if you have a chance!

    Been there, done that... but not in college..

    My umm...friend and I were surfing for movies on the company LAN one fine weekend, and stumbled upon some, on an Israeli guys machine... Had an awesomely hilarious time in the meeting room with a projector connected ;)

    Its an experience you dont want to miss :D
