Its raining outside ...

and its 5 in the morning. Guess its a nice time to write a post. Blogs are making their presence felt in a very big way. The war that is going on. The spamming of comments that is a regular feature now.... Yep, had to select the image recognition thing for allowing comments. The best way to stop any stupid bot from marring my blog by their idiotic and standard phrases. However, the question that rises is, what would happen when optical character recognition or Ocr is developed enough to port it onto such spam programs? How then to differentiate man from program? Guess, these procedures will also be advanced by then.
Got 'lost' in Lost recently. It is quite gripping. And the script writers play around with the story. It gets so frustrating sometimes :D. Have a supposedly important exam in 3 days. Dont even have an idea of how it generally is. And i had to pay 6K for this exam !! Why am i doing it? At the same time i am also attempting to do something else which may(small chance) turn out to be quite useful. But mainly i have been getting lost.

Blogging is becoming such an important phenomenon. People are losing jobs because of it. People are getting employment out of it. The major pastime for a whole lot of people. Blogworld(the word Blog-o-sphere somehow sounds really bad) is the place where people are writing their opinions about everything under and above the sun. The posts may be on political issues, international issues and ofcourse lots of personal issues. It is being read by huge numbers as well. And here i am, rambling randomly about various things. I guess mainstream is not where i am supposed to be :)

"you are one who understood me the most in our campus " - quite a nice complement to get eh? :D.

Identifying it as a compliment shows the depth in your understanding. Hope you get to win the hearts of many more as you move on in life

I guess a better way is... ask the person who comments to find out your name or some really language related thing.. machine will fail!! :)... and so you can stop spam.

I hav recently seen a univ site which asks the identification as:
"Add the following number and give the result in the given box" and it is followed by two simple numbers like 7 and 6.
Guess, they r using nlp instead of vision :D
