Musings & Learnings for the day

Fantastic Four and its sequel Rise of the Silver Surfer, both the movies have taught me lessons. Yesterday night I was watching Fantastic Four, I have watched it before but thought of refreshing myself with this movie as I saw its sequel very recently, till 1.00 AM in the night and never realised when I slept. And today morning I found my glasses, spectacles I use to help me with my myopia, broken. So the lesson is obvious, if you are in a dilemma whether to buy a new pair of glasses or not watch movies till late in the night.

The sequel has taught me something very important. Those who have seen the movie will know how important Sue, The Invisible Woman, is among the Fantastic Four. The Silver Surfer, originally Norrin Radd from the planet Zenn La, who is supposed to destroy the Earth to save his planet from the hands of Galactus ends up helping the Fantanstic Four. The reason is, typical Indian movie sentiment, Sue reminds him of his back home (i mean back planet) love. This proves the importance and the advantage of having a team member of fairer sex. So all you managers and future managers out there, keep this point in mind.

Read the book Intelligent Design, atleast go through their website. It gives a completely different perspective of evolution, but the description of aliens match with my analysis to some extent.

If you happen to work on gcc and use gdb to debug the code, always use option -g for compiling the project. It will make your job easier while debugging.

Most of us aren't aware that Google's GTalk has come up with support for Conference, they call it Group Chat and have introduced only in the web version of their GTalk. Hope they support this feature in the regular version of GTalk very soon.

And this is something serious. Everyday on the way to office from home in the cab, I come across a traffic police who does his job very sincerely. But that perfection with which he signals and controls traffic make me laugh. And this is not the case with only me. May be its because we rarely come across people who do their job perfectly. But is that all we give in response for perfection?
