Framed in front of frames


I think I've over done the vignetting effect.. I'm just discovering LR 3 Beta (Alas, I won't be able to afford it when it's released)
This was shot inside the Museum of Modern Art in NY with the 18-200mm VR with very poor lighting; thus the noise.

Couple of old portraits



Life goes on


I've been working on a DSL (Domain-Specific Language) in Visual Studio 2010 RC to design deployments of MOSS Search Farms.

There were a lot of things that we solved, which we couldn't solve just by few minutes of Googling, basically because they've changed the architecture of DSL in visual studio 2010 but haven't documented/blogged them fully yet. Every time we crossed something of the sort, I thought I'd blog about it, :) But didn't.

We released a Beta of the tool last Friday to the internal tech community, and the feedback we've received so far is pretty good.

Hopefully, sometime this week, I'd start posting some posts about DSL in Visual Studio 2010 RC, and if/when we release the tool, I'd hopefully blog about that too..

Whateverism - An alternative to religion

There are people among us who practice Whateverism as an alternative to religion. But because of the nature of Whateverism, it's not expressed, discussed or promoted.

The core principle of Whateverism is having a lesser regard towards religion and not having a strong opinion about all or most of religious beliefs. Unlike atheism, it does not challenge religions or oppose them, it just ignores them. Another difference would be, unlike most atheists, Whateverists, do understand that intelligence, like any other thing, is relative and vary by the reference model, so they do not think of themselves as intelligent than the religious people.

Whateverists, do not necessarily associate moral values with religious believes. They take pride in that understanding, but do not socially brag about it; because they are content by what they are... :)
