Or something like that. A combination of factors made me stay away from my PC for more than a week. And some re-arranging of stuff at my place, a bad result, SPACE fatigue (and disappointment), uneasy equations with friends… all contrived to keep me from plugging into the Internet as well.

The results hurt. I should ‘ve seen where they were going. Guess I had gambled too long on the 40 marks bit. And worst of all, I ‘ve just myself to blame for it. And the timing couldn’t have been more unsuitable – placements are around the corner. Ironically, when everyone has got stellar scores to bolster their placement chances, I’ve saddled myself with 2 KTs…

Now its barely a month away – submissions, KTs, orals and the 6th semester exams. Tough, but then, “To do the Unix philosophy right, you have to be loyal to excellence” from The Art of Unix Programming by ESR. Guess I get prove myself, hm?
