Never Knew I Was Living In The World
Programming Safer Code (Secure Coding In C \ C++)

Today was a day when some important lessons were learnt, lessons that would change my outlook towards life, lessons that would leave imprint on me forever. What lessons? These lessons:
1. No matter how hard you try, whatever you buy will be available at a lower price somwhere else. The hard disk enclosure that I bought for 60$, after a research of 3 weeks, was available for just 30$ at fry's.

2. Never fill in you mail-in-rebate form before checking the stuff that u've bought. The linksys router that I bought today doesnt work, but I realized this only after i had filled in and mailed the rebate form. The chances of a refund on this one look bleak. :( (Another 40 bucks down the drain).

3. Good times don't last long, they are always eaten up by greed. The blazing net speeds here just compelled me into downloading a bit too much and my ethernet port was blocked by the Hotel's ISP today. Have got it unblocked now but with a warning. :(

4. A blog is a man's best friend. As I sit here in the dark corner of my hotel room, with no one to talk to, with no shoulder to rest my head upon, the blog is my only reprieve, my only confidante, *sob* *sob*

Neways, I'll be strong. The dark force cometh. O sysadmin, beware, may the force (of port forwarding, Mac spoofing and packet encrypting, be with me....

And yeah, here is a pic of my new found love. :)
