Experimenting with Food

Somehow when I was here last time, I didnt enjoy the canteen food. Since then I have started cooking. Cooking is fun. And I have another friend who enjoys cooking too. We have tried Sambar, Pepper Rasam, Rava Dosai, Wheat Dosai, Palak, Fried Rice and Pulav. Today it is Vermicilli.

You feel happy when others compliment after tasting your food. And this entry has nothing to do with this post.

"Because as more applications go online, response time will get longer and longer, and the users will get more and more irritated," his boss tells him. "This way, we can just decrease the number of times the empty loop executes, keep response time constant and keep the users happy."
