Exception(al)!! :)

im_not_geek

Over the last few weeks, I had been very busy…naturally the frequency of me posting my writeups here, had taken a backseat…14 hours of work plus 2 hours of travel took most of my daily time…

For an interactive person like me, this situation is pretty sad….

Friends started getting worried about my constant absence both online and offline. Two of you lovely ladies, Isd and CuteAngel were sweet enough to mail me enquiring if I was doing ok…Thank you buddies…its always a nice feeling if someone misses me, either for my posts or for my visits on their blogs…whatever be the reason, it means a lot…Owe you one ladies! 🙂 

Also not finding me available on the office communicator, I got mails from a few close buddies asking me if I was alive…Yes, I was indeed alive but in hell!! 😉 Thanks guys for those caring mails!!  🙂

Four weeks ago, I was on bench with no work allocated to me…and then I got an opportunity to replace a guy who was going on leave for his wedding in a highly sensitive project and with complex reports to be developed, but more importantly to capture the work ethics in 2 days time before the groom left on his approved leave. I was supposed to be his best man at work!! 😉

Three weeks of replacement time ends this coming monday, and  I must say it was the best learning experience in the shortest time possible…Over a week, I got used to the 14 hours per day routine that I will now miss (unless I get screwed again in the next assignment! :P) for sure. 

It was lovely to work in co-ordination with my onsite guy…he was helpful to the last detail…I would say, it would have been impossible without him and his constant push…!! Thanks man! 🙂

And best thing is that the clients are happy with what I have delivered in the last 3 weeks and so was my onsite co-ordinator and manager…so the efforts were worthwhile…yay! 😀

For the two weeks that I was on bench prior to this project, I was involved in the making of a video of my parody for the annual day event of a few verticals in my company. I had a lovely time writing the lyrics and the storyboard…as well as in the directing and editing of the shoot!! Though I missed attending the event owing to work, I got to know that at the event there was a loud roar of applause and cheering…the feedbacks by a handful who saw it offline have also been awesome…!! 😀

As of now am working on a photo-video for another event thats coming up next tuesday!!  And I’m lovin’ it!! 😀

Parody[9]: Test my Code!

This is a parody of “Paint my Love” by ‘Micheal Learns to Rock”! 🙂

I call this one “Test my Code” by “Sree Learns to Code”!! lolz.. 😉

Have tried my best to get it in sync with the tune…You can find the song in the music box in my blog here…try it and let me know…Enjoy! 😀

*************************************************************

From my training days till this moment here
I’ve never been able to type it clean
From the header above to the last bug down
I’ve never felt geeky like this before

Test my code, you should test my code
It’s the mess of thousand syntax
It’s the source of a thousand bugs
Tester, you should test my code

Been through the spec, and then I did wreck…
It’s like coding bugs in a way I’ve known

Test my code, you should test my code
It’s the mess of thousand syntax
It’s the source of a thousand bugs
Tester, you should test my code

Since you cleaned into my code
The bugs before all made to block and hide
Since you cleaned into my code
Everything has compiled…

Test my code, you should test my code
It’s the mess of thousand syntax
It’s the source of a thousand bugs
Tester, you should test my code

*************************************************************

[Spoof-post]~ Mission Coding!!! ;)

I don’t know if anyone else has tried such monkey-tricks before…but I don’t mind pulling such ones off in a manner as humanely as possible!! 😛
This is a spoof of a post which my friend Niveditha wrote on her corporate blog…She called it ‘Mission Kitchen’ and I call mine “Mission Coding”…My piece seems more corporate, don’t you think?? Read it and you will surely disagree!! 😛 Btw to get into the groove, read the original post first, its right below my spoofy version!! 😉

***********************************************************************************************

I normally get accustomed to a technical piece very easily. But there is an exception here. One area with which I have never been able to establish a certain comfort level with, is coding. 😳 I so wish I could love coding as much as I love bugging. But alas I have never been successful in coding and most often I find myself confused about the stuff found in this alien of a source piece.

When left alone with the codes I am left wondering about the weird logic that goes into making it flawlessly run, and how ever much I try I never get any inclination to learn the “art” of coding. 😉 The few things I know I can do decently are…

Raise Syntax errors as instantly as Maggi… :mrgreen:

Make a somewhat decent review, that too just for two hundred lines of code. If it is more or less, I do not know the proportion…and I end up exhausting my vocabulary of technical words.
I can make documentation. Not perfect ones, but ya decent readable/understandable ones…

I can keep bugs in the code editor… 😎

Ya.. That’s about it. There is nothing else I can do in the area of coding, and I always keep listening to one standard dialogue from my manager: “What will you do when you get fired and go? Will you feed your wife with bugs too?”

Well well… I am sure I am going to get a very adjusting wife and am sure I will learn something or the other by that time. So I keep telling my manager not to take any tension from his side. And once I finish this clichéd dialogue I get nothing except a dirty stare from him. 😳

Ah. I remember one particular incident that happened sometime ago. At that time I was much weaker in the coding area than I am now. As was the situation then, my manager used to write the logic and keep it ready for me to build on it before I came to office every Monday. I being the lazy one that I am just had to take the logic and fix it somewhere into the code.  So there I take the logic (something that I thought was logic!) and added some syntax and gave a bulk of code to the poor tester who had asked for it. But that day I felt the original code seemed different and was acting weird. It was unusually throwing exceptions and looked like it had a lot of bugs. Not bothering to actually find out I ran the code package, and so did my tester. She was sweet enough not to say anything. Once my manager was back in the evening asking for the status, I asked what the problem was with the logic. And what he said made me, my teammates and the tester giggle our guts out. That FYI mail from the manager which I thought as logic to apply were actually some similarly seeming test datas for my information which I applied into development and I did not realize that! 😳

Ya… I know you guys think it’s a tad too much. But that’s how bad I was when it came to the coding. Thankfully I am much better now.

PS:  I have made a vow to myself to learn at least some basic coding so as to survive under my manager in the future. Let me see if I keep up this promise or as usual this gets bugged like all the promises I have made to myself. :mrgreen:

Mission Kitchen – Original post by Niveditha!! 😀

***********************************************************************************************

I normally get accustomed to a place very easily. But there is an exception here. One place where I have never been able to establish a certain comfort level with, is the kitchen. 😳 I so wish I could love cooking as much as I love eating. But alas I have never been successful in cooking and most often I find myself confused about the stuff found in this alien of a place.

When left alone in the kitchen I am left wondering about the weird ingredients that go into a meal, and how ever much I try I never get any inclination to learn the “art” of cooking. 😉 The few things I know I can do decently are…

Prepare Maggi… :mrgreen:

Make a somewhat decent coffee, that too just for two. If it is more or less I do not know the proportion…

I can make dosa. Not perfect ones, but ya decent edible ones…

I can keep rice in the cooker… 😎

Ya.. That’s about it. There is nothing else I can do in the area of cooking, and I always keep listening to one standard dialogue from my mom: “What will you do when you get married and go? Will you leave your husband hungry?”

Well well… I am sure I am going to get a very adjusting husband and am sure I will learn something or the other by that time. So I keep telling my mom not to take any tension from her side. And once I finish this clichéd dialogue I get nothing except a dirty stare from her. 😳

Ah. I remember one particular incident that happened sometime ago. At that time I was much weaker in the kitchen area than I am now.  As was the situation then, my mom used to heat milk and keep it ready for me to have my complan every Saturday before she left for office. I being the lazy one that I am just had to take the milk and pour it into my glass.  So there I take the milk (something that I thought was milk!) and added some complan and gave a glass of milk to the poor maid who had asked for it. But that day I felt the milk looked different and weird. It was unusually frothy and looked like it had a lot of water. Not bothering to actually find out I drank down the contents of my glass, and so did my maid. She was sweet enough not to say anything.  Once my mom was back in the evening I asked what the problem was with the milk. And what she said made me, my mom and the maid laugh our lungs out. That vessel which I thought was milk actually had buttermilk and I did not realize that! 😳

Ya… I know you guys think it’s a tad too much. But that’s how bad I was when it came to the kitchen. Thankfully I am much better now.

PS:  I have made a vow to myself to learn at least some basic cooking so as to survive in my in-laws house in the future. Let me see if I keep up this promise or as usual this goes hiding like all the promises I have made to myself. :mrgreen:

Don’t call me insane/mad/besharam/anything…I know all that I am!! 😛

Parody[4]: In the cubicle of mine…

This is a parody of “Summer of ’69″…by Bryan Adams…Dunno if it in sync with the tune…you guys need to tell me!! 😀

~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~

I wrote my first real source-code – copied it in real quick time
Ran it till my laptop hanged – this was in the cubicle of mine
Me and some guys from my team – had an idea and we tried real hard
Pappu quit and Pammi got married – we shoulda never tried to code it at all
Oh when I look back now – That code seemed to last forever
And if I had any clue – ya – I’d have tried not to get fired
Those were the Copy-Paste days of my life

Ain’t no use in complin’ – when you know no code to do
Spent my evenin’s down at the pantry – and that’s when I met you – ya
Standin’ near your manager’s cube – you told me that you’d review it over
Oh and when you held my report – I knew it could be then or never
Those were the Copy-Paste days of my life – back in the cubicle of mine.

Man we were killin’ time – we were fresh and senseless
We needed to seem busy- I guess nothin’ can run forever – no
And now the coding platforms are changin’
Look at everything that’s come and gone
Sometimes when I run that old source-code
I think about it and wonder what I did wrong

Standin’ in your manager’s cube – you told me it would last forever
Oh and when you held my report – I knew that it was then or never – ya
Those were the Copy-Paste days of my life – oh ya – back in the cubicle of mine
Ya – me in that bay of mine

It was in the cubicle of mine.

Parody[3]: Everytime I code…

This is my third parody…and this time round, I pull the strings on Bryan Adams’s “Everything I do” with my “Everytime I code”…the last two being “Muthu can’t code saala” (of ‘Pappu can’t dance saala’) and “My code will go on…” (of Celine Dion’s “My heart will go on”)!! Enjoy!! 😀

~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~

Look into my code – you will see
Maybe or not – how you wanted it to be
Scratch your head – scribble on your pad
And then you find me when it’ll work no more

Don’t tell me it’s not worth compilin’ for
You can’t tell me it’s not worth runnin’ for
You have no clue
Everytime I code – I bug it for you

Look into the code – you will find
There’re only the bugs that hide
Take them as they are – run the file
I would see it all – I would smile.

Don’t tell me it’s not worth deliverin’ for
I can work on it – if anythin’s to be added on
Ya have no clue
Everytime I code – I bug it for you

There’s no code – like my code
And no other – could give you such code
There’s no bug – unless I put it there
All the time – while in my bay

Oh – you can tell me it’s worth just millions for
I can take it – there’s nothin’ I want more
I would code for you – I’d review for you
Type the document for you – ya I’d deliver for you…

Ya have no clue
Everytime I code – I bug it for you 😀

Parody[2]: My Code Will Go On…

The previous parody (‘Muthu can’t code saala’) I did was of the song “Pappu can’t dance saala” from the recent movie – Jaane Tu Ya Jaane Na!!

This parody is of the song “My Heart will go on” sung by Celine Dion for the movie album “Titanic”!! Enjoy! 😀

~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~

Every day in my bay…
I type it, I bug it…
That is how I know it to work on…

Far across the monitor…
With the keyboard between us…
It’s been compiled and run to go on…

Short, long, however it is…
I believe that the code does go on…
Whenever you open the debugger…
You’ll find loads of bugs in there…
But my code will go on and on…

You can debug it one time…
And support for a lifetime…
But can never let go till you’re gone…

Geeky was when I coded it…
With no coffee cup to hold to…
In my life the code will always go on…

Short, long, however it is…
I believe that the code does go on…
Whenever you open the debugger…
You’ll find loads of bugs in there…
But my code will go on and on…

Bugs allover, but there’s nothing to fear…
Cos I know that my code will go on…
They’ll stay forever this way…
The bugs are safe in my code…
And my code will go on and on…and on… 😀
