A dimension not so far away

This is one of the coolest purchases I've made in recent times. Shrek 3D double bill is a pack of Shrek + Shrek 3D, a 16 minute feature film which is in 3D! It's a small adventure Shrek, Fiona and Donkey go thru and takes place in the timeline between Shrek and Shrek 2 (dropping you just where Shrek 2 begins).

The whole 3D experience, glasses et al is simply AWESOME!! It's my first 3D movie and what better than Shrek for a first of this sort? :)

Nick Gray arrives in India!

Nick Gray, a great friend I made via Ryze and his blog arrived in India today! Over the next 3 months, Nick plans to explore the REAL India (mind you he's not your average ordinary traveler seeking 'sightseeing' spots) and explore the possibilities of forming a team for his project, BuddyGopher.

I reached to pick up Nick from the airport, in a bit of a mad hurry but surprisingly managed to be only 15 minutes late.

It was close to 11 pm and we had no idea about his accommodation but I had a few hotel numbers I had narrowed down on. Finally we decided to go for Hotel Parkway at Shivaji Park.

Nick made a quick call to his folks, we had a quick dinner at Gypsy Chinese and then he showed me the zillion goodies he got for me!

Got Flickr?

I've been Flickr-ing for the past week and everytime I try it, I find a cool new feature. Today I tried FlickrLive which is taking chat to the next level with real-time photo sharing, instant-buddy, private messaging and more. See the screenshot for more. It offers the kind of communication and customisation which only Opera and Google has given us so far.

These guys are doing a fantastic job of creating a robust community around photo sharing. I've tried it all - Webshots, Yahoo! Photos, Ofoto... nothing compares to the flexibility and usability of Flickr. I'm almost sounding like a brand evangelist now. If you still don't get the message and don't join the site, I don't think I should say anything further.

Look out for Flickr - it's the next buzzword!

Psst... Check out the cool thing on the sidebar of my blog. Shows random pics from me and my friends.

Get on with it

I keep these 2 things in mind should I ever have a sinking feeling:

1 - Don't despair, it's bad, but it could get worse :) - Murphy's Law
2 - If you're ever feeling down on life, just remember - you were once the fastest sperm in the bunch. - Source unknown. Courtesy of ShodZ
