Blogging = Nonsense or what ?

This story happened even after the bloggers meeting

I use my blog URL as a suffix to any nickname I use on MSN messenger.
Here is a small part of a conversation I had yesterday with a friend of mine (Abed) :

abed says:

Blogging (A new level) - says:

abed says:
btosrod seret 7ayatak kol yoom!!!!

abed says:

abed says:
what is blogger by the way?

Abed astonishingly wondering if I am writing my everyday life details on the web.Then he says that it is for people with lots of free time (he is making fuun of it) :And ends it by "The Ultimate Question" : What is a Blog or Blogger ?

I will not comment further on this but when I am asked for the meaning of a BLOG or what is a blog, I have two answers :

Your blog is whatever you want it to be
2. I give them this link - I use this when I believe that the best way to understand what is a blog is by seeing one

Will we break down the Magic

Today is the bloggers meeting at 7:00 pm
I will finally get to know most of the bloggers.
Will this break the magic of reading someone's thoughts without even knowing him ? A question that is circulating inside my skull :)
Or maybe we will be moving to some higher level. I wonder :)

I will always love you

I will love you till birds cease to fly …...
I will love you till big mountains crumble down from high …...
I will love you till deep runny rivers dry …...
I will love you till babies decide not to cry …...
I will love you till children stop asking why?...
I will love you till a mother delivers her baby without a sigh …...
I will love you till women decide they had enough to buy …...
I will love you till royalties stop putting butter on their rye …...
I will love you till when in a famine a soldier resists a pie …...
In other words I will love you till I die.

"Violette Marar Theodory"

I just love it.

This is called "A mother's Love", but it can be used for any type of love, I guess.
It was written by a school teacher from my school a long time ago, so you won't find it on the internet. (I hope so :-) )

Dedicated to all the ones I love and especially my family

Things boosting my life

Several things had, in a way or another, changed my life in the past months.

I always seek for things that would add up more value to my every day living habit :-)

My visit to Istanbul was a great experience both personally and technically.
I was introduced to several new software engineering approaches and new programming techniques.
I got into the details of Google Tools and they are just great. (I have previously blogged details about these tools).

I was introduced to several new people. Some became dear friends and some were of a great benefit to my career and studying. I just like getting to know new people from time to time.

In addition to that, I was introduced to and that was a great addition to my blogging. I think that the coming bloggers meeting will be something for me to add to this list. (Hope so)

On the top of this list comes a thing that had really added up much to my life.
I got to know someone who generated waves for my silent sea.

I thank GOD for every addition to my life.

Dedicated to the one and only MIRACHKA

Totally lost

Regular days.
Lots of work and studying.
Today I felt as if I was sleeping for ages and just woke up to find that I have tons of books to study, Kilos of papers to write and zillions of university projects to finish.
In addition to my tasks at work, I feel totally lost. It seems it is too late to do all these things.
I am being asked for about three world-class research papers and for it to be published to get the scores that I need to pass this year. Now that's really hard, believe me.

Also, I found that my colleagues are too nerds for me to compete with, maybe "super-Nerds" (Not Geeks or gurus) is a better word. That's too much for me to handle :-(

On the other hand, ,I have been thinking a lot about the coming Bloggers and how some bloggers may look like.
I tried to create my own picture for some of them but I just don't like the idea of creating a picture of someone and then find it does not fit the frame of reality.

I just wish things would change soon. I hope it will.

Quality Defined

A nice definition of Quality I just passed by:

Quality is part of the process, it's in the doing.
Quality isn't a set of rules or a set of metrics; it's in the spirit of the smallest of our daily activities.
It is a verb trapped in a noun's body.

Is the moon there when I am not looking at it ??

I was having this question circulating my mind for a while:
"Is the moon there when I am not looking at it ?"

Well, as Colwell says : "I like to think the moon is there even if I am not looking at it. However, a popular book on quantum physics posits that the moon pops into existence when I look at it, but it is free to disappear and visit other planets when I'm not looking."

By the way, this is possible in the laws of quantum physics.

Maybe the best advice is to assume the moon is there even when you're not looking at it - but peek at it out of the corner of your eye once in a while just in case. :-)
