Computers hate infinity, I should not...

Whatever seems impossible to perpetrate is flagged as , undefined, by a computer but the same is what humans have always made their jacks. I am referring to Swami Dayananda's comment, "IMPossible, means I M (am) Possible."

What makes us think the infinity the undefined way, a focus to our main goal mitigated by the myriad of our short-term goals. No doubts that these short-term goals are also very important for us to get to the situation of feeling big at small achievements and make the course of life normal. However, this myriad of short-term goals should not be entrapping enough to not let us focus on our main goal.

I was finding myself dumbfounded pondering over the differences between set of my principles and practices during recent days. I took two days of complete leisure for letting my thought process go unceased and finally, I ended up writing and making a clear vision of my principles and to visualize the junction where my practices (owing to my social and person needs) meet my principles. This two-day phenomenon of pondering involved an improvised and self-contrived session of finding and resolving the guilt arising due to inefficiency of mine during previous days. I realized the sources of guilts as a few professional setbacks, few flawed relationships and few inabilities to achieve my short-term goals. As the way out, I allowed myself a very short and strict time limit for finding reasons and surprisingly I got reasons for my these guilts in most of the cases, and for the unresolved, I chose to chuck them up.

This was my way of waving a good-bye to self-originated frustration and self-motivation. As a result of which,
"I don't hate infinity unlike computers. "

Attention Geeks, Bitwise 06 Announced!

Technical freaks, an alarm for you from IIT Kharagpur. Bitwise 06, the annual online programming contest, which has become a grownup among its global counterparts leaving behind age of its infancy merely a few years back.

Bitwise poses a set of virtual problems that are emulated real by the creative themes, the creators of these problems contrive. These virtual problems are supposed to be first reduced to some intelligible software problems and that’s where your programming brains should start working. The objective is not only to have programmatic solutions to these problems; solutions must appear as if they are real work of real brains. They need to be optimized for time and space complexity of algorithms giving rise to them.
As a set convention, Bitwise is held on the second Sunday of month of February each year, and this year 12 February is the date for online trial of your gray cells.
As for the rules, you are provided a limited time span (limited but not less) of around 12 hours on the day of trial, during which you can post up to 10 unique solutions to each problem. The most recent solution to a particular problem will be deemed the final solution to that problem from your side.
For further information, visit:
Bitwise 06 Home
Get informed and enticed, enroll, download the problems, and take a deep breath. Start working out the old problems.
Perhaps you're gonna become the one who gets ranked among the top 50 and among the ones who get their skills explored and exposed to outside world... and who knows who in this material world is looking for a geek like you!

"With end of hopes for many,
Bringing a season to the eyes called, rainy,

... CAT has unveiled its both sides to the test-takers, the IIM aspirants,
making many faces glooming with high hopes zooming while many others sobbing, feeling CAT's fobbing... finally.

Three IIMs, IIM Lucknow, IIM Ahmedabad, and IIM Calcutta today declared the results for CAT 2005 exam, which you can check at the following URLs:
