How do you test something you have no access of?

For years, hotmail is simply the worst mail site that I have had to bear. It was the worst site that I registered to, and so I have tried to maintain my Id there. Whenever somebody posts to my hotmail account, I send back a message that this account is deprecated, please reply back to all posts on gmail.com

And I thought with new slick mail.live.com with 2 GB storage, I would have some alternative. But then they say "sign up", and then say "thank you for showing interest", we would contact in some weeks. This is the best way to kill interest.

Oh ya, like I am waiting.

Experience with Social & business N/w sites.

I have tried quite a few sites to claim to know somethin about the social sites by now. I have tried orkut.com, linkedin.com, rec-all.com, ryze.com, nitalumni.com etc.

On thursay/friday something unexpected happened. A fellow school mate whom I have not spoken since school days (ok, I talked once after coming out of college), contacted me. I gave in and accepted her invitation. And voila, people I thought I would never talk to in life again suddenly got in touch :).

Google Calender is profiled here:-

Techcrunch
Tale of 2 Murthys

Infosys comes out with a bonus issue on its silver anniversery. Just over a year ago, they had made a similar issue. Also, T Mohandas Pai leaves CFO post.

In my previous organisation there was no retirement age. How could there when all the hotshots were over 70. One leg in grave and another in office ...

Cynical me thinks that Infy's founders are pretty smart in advertising for their organisation. I have watched a lot of episodes of N R Narayan Murthy on his austere life and ethics to know that. There is no better way to publicise Infy than this.

Yet I really like the gentleman, his values and what he has done. If there is any biography I would ever 'buy' and read, it would be his and Sudha's.


P.S. (Disloyal) investor me has been obsessed with Infy's stock and has not traded much in them ever. Looking at the kind of individuals who manage it, it has been a cool decision
One who goes out of the door sure comes back!!!
