Finally.. after three years of kinda continuous blogging, my posts now count to a hundred :)
After a long thought about what to post on the 100th, I thought I'd be faithful to this good old blog by actually including a part of itself as a sort of tribute to itself... *sniff* For it's been what my mind has been all these years...
Hence I got an excuse to dig up all my old posts outta the archive and atleast glance through each one of them.. And it was worth it, for I really couldn't believe (and I'm not saying this just for the sake of saying it) that I had written certain posts.. I've really changed over the years it seems.. :D So ladies and gentlemen, presenting the specially handpicked (mouse-clicked) list of my favourite posts(as of this moment!) over the last three years (in chronological order: oldest first):
Horlicks Fest: My first post in the 'criticism' category. My total, comprehensive pissed-off-ness that day led me to "aishwaryamaayittu" start blogging (and swearing on it). Got my first comments on it too.. A bit of nostalgia wouldn't hurt eh..
Through the landscape...blah blah: Straight from the bored heart of a travel-bug cum shutter-bug cum railfan waiting for his exams to get over :)
Up and down the motherland: A longish post about that awesome trip with our dear Vice Princi and five class-buddies to Chandigarh for the 1st National Aerospace Olympiad. Enjoyed it like hell.. being my first trip this far with classmates :)
Vista on 128MB RAM?: Misleading as the title is, it's undoubtedly the most popular post on the blog going by the two-three hits everyday for it by desperate people who are looking to run Vista on their old machines (LOL!!!). It reeks of Linux propaganda, btw :D
Ghanan Ghanan: A long short-story :P I simply love this one!
Chengalisation: One of the few posts from the Criticism category which made it to this list.. this was written with all disgust!
Top Linux Slogans:Another linux post :D But this one was a listing of hugely hilarious pro-linux slogans(which also happen to be jabs at W!ndow$... Became rather popular by appearing on tuxmachines and fsdaily.
This evening: My attempt at overcoming the lack of something to blog about, my just going for a walk and making this post out of absolutely nothing. Ironically I liked this one a lot :)
Up, up and away: The first of the five-part series of HUGE posts about my first trip out of India.. I typed furiously for days that I almost got Carpal tunnel syndrome :-| Still, going by the comments people felt it was a good read I guess...
Why am I so?: A one stop explanation for people who got curious about my fascination for trains. Says it all.. and proves I'm not mental :D
A Monsoon Sojourn: The advantage of blogging these lovely trips/joyrides is that you can always refresh your memory by going through these a long time later...
Christmas as a Loyolite: Christmas was the best season to be in Loyola.. *sigh* I miss school!
A Leaf outta Life 01: Finally, a college post.. to complete the circle eh? But I like this one a lot.. makes it seem like lots happen in a day!
Well that ends what undoubtedly looks like a boasting vain display of posts.. well I don't care if it appears so :| Had such a nice time sifting through archives and poking bytes at parts of Google's databanks which remained unaccessed for years!
Finally... thanks to anyone who has gone though my blog at some point of time or the other.. And a warm hug to all who have stayed through till now :) Love y'all!
