The Easiest IQ Test :P
I was stumbling through articles online and found this interesting image (Please click the image below to see the real moving image). Well, if you look at the image you may see its either moving clockwise or counter clockwise. Well, the interesting this is both are true. If you see its moving clockwise you are using your right brain otherwise left brain.
You may see both !! But the IQ test here is ( 😉 ) if you can make it switch between two different views without shifting your gaze then your IQ should be 160 – genius IQ!! Interestingly I could do it and now my IQ is 160 😛
I would say, this is the most amazing (easy) IQ test ever 😀 (I am sure most people can do it)

Randy Pausch Died Today :(
Earlier I submitted another post on Professor Randy Pausch. Here is the link. He was a Professor of Computer Science, Human-Computer Interaction, and Design at Carnegie Mellon. In Sept. of 2006, he was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer and it is the most deadly of cancers, with only a 4% 5-year survival rate. As he knew, he was dying he gave this wodnerful lecture names ‘Last Lecture’ which later became one of the most sensation lecture in the internet and bestselling book!!
Here is a post to Pausch’s Web site yesterday by his friend “Since last week, Randy has also taken a step down and is much sicker than he had been. He’s now enrolled in Hospice. He’s no longer able to post here so I’m a friend posting on his behalf because we know that many folks are watching this space for updates.”
His lectures, stories and motivations were really encouraging. This strong, funny and very inspiring man died today at his Virginia home at the age of 47. Here is the youtube link to his very famouse lecture.
I am feeling very sad!! Death is one thing we all ahve to face and accept!!! Whatever we do, however successful we become – no matter what, this one cruel but natural thing will happen to each one of us 😦
Bad News – IT Job Market Down :(
I just read a very bad news about the IT jobs condition in 2009 😦
Its horrible, how the market is going down. I am scared about those IT graduate people who will gradute in 2009, they will go through hard time to get a job!!! When I graduated in 2007, market was quite good, and it was quite easy to get a job 🙂
Now, not only new people will fall into trouble, its risky for people like us as well, who are working !! Cause it seems with less requirements many firms will cut its people and we will have to go through this scary process!! I hope everythign become alright and we do no end up homeless/foodless!!!

Anyway, here is a snap shot of the news from: http://www.computerworld.com/action/article.do?command=viewArticleBasic&articleId=9110329
“…IT staff jobs are at increasing risk — both for contractors and in-house workers — according to a survey of top CIOs by Goldman Sachs & Co. released last week. Global services companies will also feel the pinch because of the slowing economy.
A second survey showed that basic PC and network hardware, as well as professional services providers, would bear the largest proportion of spending cuts. It also showed that CIOs planned to emphasize economizing measures over investments in new technologies, with cloud computing emerging as the last item on their priority lists, despite the hype around it. …”
On July 19th, 2008, Lipna finished one year at her work. I am feeling sooooo happy!! I still remeber the day when she got a call from the recruiter. Informing her of the long waited news….the DREAM job!!! I have kind of waited my whole life for this one news for Lipna…..I knew the smile it would bring to Lipna’s Parents and her sisters. I knew how it would change her while life and it did!!!
I was scared and hesitant of how would she mange to work, become successful. I was scared if she would lose in between. This one year has been a wonderful learning process for her, I can’t believe the amount of things she has learned. I could never imagine she would know so many stuffs, expertize in so many things. When she attend meetings, response users …I get amazed seeing her 🙂 Is this the Lipna I saw a year back??? I sure see many lacks till now, I surely want Lipna to improve more, and expect much better performance! However, whatever she has achived so far, I thank her for those, I know, all she has achieved till now was hard for her and I know she’ll do much better in the long run!!! I congratulate Lipna for completing her one year as a Technology Analyst at GS and I wish her best of luck with all future efforts and success!!!!!
Happy Aniversary Lipna and I want to see you touching the SKY one day 😉

I am trying to be organized with my life style. Given that I work 9 to 5 (infact 8 to 7 😦 – too much pressure at work) its quite easy to be organized. Lately I put on a lot of weight and I am getting quite worried about it. Other than being organized with my life style (to make sure I eat less and exercise) I can not expect to shrink a little!! Also, performance at work is very important. The mroe organized I am, the more active & productive I am at work. So, targetting two main factors ahead (work & health), I am trying to track my lifestyle. As an exercise hater and walk lover, I decided to walk as much as I can after work. So, I am trying to go straight to Brooklyn Bridge after work, it takes around 30 minutes for me to walk both ways!! A good way of loosing some weight I guess.
On the other hand, I am trying to read some technical papers and books to expertise myself in my field of work and trying to be more active at work.
So far, both these process towards good health and good performance at work has been working great!!
Only if I can continue this for another two weeks!!! I have heard that if we can continue doing somthing regularly for one month (atleast two weeks) it becomes a habit. I hope I do not dissapoint myself and keep up with the self-improvement process 🙂
Will defintely get back to my blog with results (if any 😉 ) or as ususal start showing excuses for giving up 😛

Downloading YouTube Video
YouTube is the place where I spend most of my spare time, listening/watching favorite musics, dramas, and other misc stuffs! Well, even though its a service to watch video, what annoys me most is sometimes I want a song to repeat as long as I want to listen to it. I want to leave it open in my computer and may be read a book in my bed. I could not find any way of doing it 😦 If any body knows its possible, please let me know.
So, out of this frustration I thought, why not download the song I like from YouTube and listen to windows media player/realplayer where I can hear the song as long as my heart desires 😉
To that attempt, I found many ways of doing these. Here are some ways I liked (links to follow) which I would like to share in my blog:
(Credit goes to google for giving these results and all these sites for such wonderful useful tools)

Sine Curve Life!!
I am tired of this sine curve in my life…sometimes I am too happy, sometimes too sad 😦
I just want to settle down! Yesterday I was literally DEAD, I went home early and direcly went to bed, and felt the whole world is a mess and I have no one who loves me. And interestingly, nobody behaved bad, and nothing happen to create such a mess I did!! Rather my friends called, my hubby talked very lovingly, but I felt like I am the only loveless person living in this planet 😥
And today when I woke up, I felt – I am the happiest person on earth (again for no reason)….yesterday all I could think of are negative issues and today I can’t think of anythign but positive! This is a ridiculous sine curve I am in!!! BTW, those who are not aware of sine curve, its a geometrical thing, looks like a wave having a upper peak and a lower peak ( image added)!
So, my life can be represented by this curve, yesterday I was on the lower peak and today I am on the upper 😉 But this makes life unstable and harder. I have so many things to do which I am not able to organize 😦 Like today, I am very focused and working at certain things I have always planned for, but offcourse this requires me to stay tuned to finish it off, but what will happen is: tomorrow or may be day after tomorrow my dipression world will burst into me and I will lose the track!
God!! I really want to come out of this ridiculous thing…I am too old to be like this anymore 😛
With the new iPhone 3G realese and with all excitement happening around it, I cannot help writing one post about it.
Is it the iPhone hype people crazy about or its really the multifeatured phone itself??? I just read some news about people standing on the line for hours (whole night) to get the new released iPhone 3G!! I have also read some pros and cons of this phone. It seems some people have very strong reason for buying it (*It has awesome browser, *Coming with GPS etc.) and some people are way against it (*Costly Monthly Plan, *Worse Camera Quality, *Shorter Battery Life, *GPS antenna not good for turn-by-turn directions etc.)
Whether someone has strong reason or not, it is better to think/know more detail about this new release and then buy!
Best of luck to everyone who are crazily waiting for the new iPhone 3G and hope all of them get it with a good deal from AT&T 🙂
Life @ New York!!
So here I am, living my life in New York for one year! Tomorrow will be my first annivarsary of living here!!! Geographically speaking, I live in Jersey City, NJ, very close to Manhattan (15 minutes away from NY downtown). But other than sleeping and working, most of my time are spent in either Manhattan or Queens. So to sound nicer and feel better 😛 I say I live in New york!!!
From God knows when I have always wanted to come to United States and particularly New York. It was my dream to live a part of my life here and experience the diversity, the charm, the excitement and the beauty. Speaking about diversity, one good example would be: If you ever visit Time Square and notice carefully you will be amazed to hear the diverse languages all are speaking around you from different countries around the world. Not to mention their colors, their clothes, their cultures. It is such an amazing mixture of diverse people one can experience here!!
NY has also attracted me for the number of events/activities happening every single day! You can be almost anyone you wnat to be here! You want to live alone…excluded from the crowd, be introvert, visit a library or some nice park….you want to be extrovert…join the crowd…find an event and just enjoy!! You want to be successful, you have thousands ideal successful people around to follow…millions options everywhere…if you have nothign still you can end up getting some kind of small job and earn your livings!! You can GET anyhtign here in New York!! I may sound exaggerating, but that’s what i feel.
Offcourse sll these good things comes with the cost of expense….competettion for every single thing…Everythign in NY is more expensive compare to many other places. Every body is so smart that in every level of your study/work you have to be really good to compete, to survive. but thats what makes you smarter…better!!
The thing I love most about NY is the crowd which many people hate!! I came from a small beautiful and extremely populated country Bangladesh, so whether I be in the crowd or not, I love seeing people around!! Pariticipate in all kind of activities, be a part of the crowd. Many things I can’t do, but atleast i can see 🙂
This one year in NYC has been been an wonderful and amazing experience for me, I hope coming days are more challenging, more exciting, full of wonders and happiness!!!!
