| Learning Vacation Continues|
I got a couple of nice messages about my last post admiring my variety of interests, so I will share more of my interests today and notes from my continued learning vacation.
The computed text messages placed inside of Gmail messages apparently are not all commercial and sometimes indeed help the reader. Jivha has a screen capture of how Blog Portal got listed inside of his Gmail reader. Very nice!
The problem with playing against a tennis ball machine is that it never gets tired.
It is different than playing tennis against the wall, where I win every time
Anyway, I am really enjoying my vacation and improving my game. I am getting ready for a challenge match to be played in Seoul Korea later this month, where family prestige is at stake
I have written once before about absentia blogging -- that is updating the blog via a preset time trigger (also called "Blog to Future" or Content Scheduling).
Well, my dad apparently wrote letters the same way! After his sudden death in 2002, on Feb. 22nd, I found a letter written to me that was dated Feb 25th! He was quite an enigma.
Two of my cousins, both girls, have graduated from engineering schools with honors. I congratulate them.
But when they tried to apply for a job in India, they were told that five thousand similar engineers had alreay applied for a position in the same company! (I don't know which one, probably InfoSys, probably Wipro)
Amma then consoled me that five thousand still is much less than countless applications she saw people apply for a job in Indian Railways. She said that the Government was ill-equipped to handle so many applications and room-full of applications had to be simply put in jute bags (gunny bags) and hauled away.
One of the captions of our pictures asks, "In a country where college graduates remain unemployed for decades, what were an illiterate, unskilled man to do?"
