I am finally back on the virtual world

I am finally back on the virtual world i.e the world wide web. It's been exactly one month since i have blogged on anything and i have never had a chance to visit any of my fellow bloggers' blogs.

There are many reasons for i.e, Initally @ the end of last month had been for a 3 day trek to Gubbi Gundi Falls, BelliGundi Falls near Bhatkal, Mangalore. After that i was busy at work for few days. Then for almost 6 days we (i mean @ office) were cut off from the rest of the world, as our DSL line was cut by the Electricity guys [God alone knows for what reason]. After that there was this weird problem in our network where we were able to access only selected number of websites. No one had any clue why most of the common websites like yahoo, hotmail, blogger, citibank to name a few were getting blocked. Even the network admin didn't know where was the problem and how to fix it. But Yahoo and MSN IM worked absoutley fine, through IM i could still keep in touch with most of the friends, but i couldn't still blog for a very long time and keep in touch with bloggers.

From past 2 days i had some horrible problems with my desktop as well. So i put all the drives on defragmentation and left for home. Today morning when i see there was another weird exception, it's says my profile no longer exists. I had absolutely no idea how to deal with this Windows 2000 OS, i had never faced so many problems with Windows as much as i have had in 2 days. I was really frustrated and now i realise how these Microsoft products really work. Even though i created new profile and had to configure my whole development environment, but there was blessing in disguise. I was able to access blogger, yahoo and almost any URL and i hope i stay connected like this to the virtual world.

Well if some of u are thinking why coudln't i go access internet from a cafe or @ home, i really don't have that much of time on weekdays and on weekends i try to stay away from using computers.

At the end of this experience i had realised that i was too attached with blogging.

Too attached to the "Virtual World" i' d say... trust me that is something i've felt too...

Now that you are back in the 'BLOG OFFICE', better keep us entertained well ... :)

"Virtual World" ? might be, but i am sure was addicted to blogging.

I feel there is no one who has such intentions @ my workspace. I am sure there is some kind of "key-word" blocking that is practised in most of the IT companies around the world.

Vivek Kondur said...

I guess you must have figuered out who Zorro is.

I think the way we blog is so much different than a lot of other people. We seam to have all intertwined each other as a group of friends or acquaintances inviting a new person every once in awhile. Rather than blogging and commenting on meaningless gossip we discuss and debate important issues and engage in good conversations. I think that our blogging is based upon human interaction, I think its great. We all live thousands of miles away from eachother India, U.S, Singapore, UK to name a few, yet we are still interacting.

Very well summarised SC. I guess that is what makes blogging so addictive, as we get to meet a different set of people and share the thoughts with them.
