Painting….


We started painting our house today. It really took lot of time… We started around 6:00PM and we worked till 1:30AM. Just returned home… Here are some snap…

Also before and not yet after photo…

Closing is over…

We closed our house on 9/29/05. It was swati’s birthday.. So was a great day to close. Things din’t go as well as I had hoped though. First when we went for final walkthru our door was not even painted. That sucks. Next the attorney made mistake in the paperwork so we had to go back again today to sign the papers. Anyway.. I guess that is part of life. It is better that anything that has to go wrong goes wrong before we move in…:):

So now it is paiting and moving time….

EPC Global Conference…

Last week I attended EPC global conference in Atlanta… It was really helpful as I was able to talk to various companies look at their products. I was really impressed by Globe ranger and Connecterra.. They are middleware companies in RFID segment…:) Met lot of good people… It was hective 1 day visit but was fun and informational…

My Outburst at EPC meeting…

Today finally after listening to everyone arguing for hours I could not take it anymore… and I had my outburst. I stopped everyone from speaking and gave my 2 cents. I don’t understand why people talk for hours without a goal. How can u define a standard without having anything in it for interoperatability… Anyway finally I said everything I wanted too. I am not sure how much people grasped everythign out of it… But atleast Stephen from SAP came to me later and told me I had lot of important inputs in the statement… So that is good I guess….

UNC Football Game…

We had been to UNC vs Wisconsin football game on saturday the 17th. It was great fun. UNC lost but it was a great experience. It was my first football gave I had gone too. Me swati and Kailash had gone to see. The game was delayed because of some storm warning. But overall it was great fun…:):)

Abstract Art

Hey guys an interesting thing happened the other day. We had been mall walking over the weekend and stumbled upon this abstract painting. We looked at it from a couple of different angles and then finally decided that this would go very well with our cotemporary furniture. We bought it there and then. Sudhir and me are very impulsive shoppers when it comes to art. The problem is we do not and mind you DO NOT agree upon together to buy anything. Our tastes are totally opposite. So we do buy things on which we mutually agree upon at once.
Now the real dilemma is that the painting totally stands out from everything I had in my mind. I had chosen the draperies , accessories and the theme keeping in my mind the current paintings which we have and everything was well coordinated till then, But the moment I have seen this painting and see it day in and day out, the whole scheme is gone for a toss. Have to come up with something new this time. Thats a bummer. Didn’t see that coming.

My API’s for SAMSys released today….

What do I do for living… I create software applications… When joined SAMSys the only way to access SAMSys reader was via CHUMP a complex binary protocol and without any programming interface. The first thing I tried to do was build a programing interface to the reader. First release is available in Java and .NET…:) Finally today it was released. It is so nice to see something u worked so hard being released and I hope it is helpful to all the customers.

Aftermath of Katrina…

No force is greater than nature. New orleans and neighbouring places faced the wrath of nature and everything is in a mess. It is so sadening to see the news these days. How can this happen? How can we be so unprepared for such a calamity. We are the most powerful country in the world.. But as I said we are nothing in front of nature. Sometimes we humans start thinking we run this world but there is something more powerful much bigger than us… This can be the only explanation…:(

Anyway. I want to do something for the victims. I guess the only thing I can do is give some money. But I want to do something more… But what? hmmmm no idea… One thing that everyone of us can do is pray. That surely I have been doing… I hope things improve for all the victims.. I know this is going to take months or maybe years. God please help all of us..
