What TIME is it?

Office Man #16,17

You might notice the stark change from Office Man #1-16 and #17... well, my Rho taught me how to do that. I had no idea whiteboard markers could be used that way. Now that my skill archives have been updated with latest revisions, better Office Man are sure to come. Office Man #17 creeped me out, though. What was I thinking? Why do I keep drawing these?!

Office Man #12,13,14,15

I am just gonna drop these here and run away (as I am being a super lazy blogger...)
Office Man #12 is a tribute to Mortal Kombat
Office Man #13 and #14 are a tribute to Kingdoms of Amalur
Office Man #15 is a tribute to Bastion (One of the most artistic games I have ever seen. A stellar game play with a gripping narrative... worth tens time the price it's being sold at. Buy it on Steam... like, NOW!)

Salary Man gets fat + Office Man #1,2,3,4

Well, it's been quite a while since I began working (working for real, as a salary man O_O, yeah... I didn't believe it either). I had joined Nvidia as ASIC Design Engineer (I am really proud of telling people about this, with a grin) on July 23rd, 2012. Spent two weeks in Bangalore and then I was shipped off to Hyderabad, for I had asked them to do so. Why did I pick Hyderabad instead of Bangalore and it's awesome weather and free spirited crowd? Well, my Rho's in Hyderabad. She's better than the weather.

I will not get into the details of what happened and what I do for a living as an "ASIC Design Engineer", for that's mainstream/not entertaining to the non-tech. My work does involve keeping a lot of things in my RAM at the same time, but that isn't a problem. I honestly do love my work and being a technophile, I couldn't have chosen a better place to be. Did I mention I get to see things waaaaay before you do?

I am tone deaf

I am completely tone deaf and I love listening to music. Speaking of music, I like Cowon as their hardware is very good in my eyes and my ears. I had gotten my beloved Rho, a Cowon C2. Wonderful tiny thing with cutesy UI and music producing hardware that always brings every Apple to it's knees. Koreans :)

Gimme the cheapest phone you got.

Roaming charges on my number are killing me. So, the obvious next step would be to get a local SIM, right? Not that easy. I need my current number active as well. Hence, I had to get the proverbial "secondary phone" in which I could stick my original SIM whilst enjoying the delicious delight of normal, almost insignificant rates of a local sim and the cheap 3G internet on my HTC Desire S. The local sim (airtel-Karnataka) gives me 100 sms per day, every day, forever. I am a happy camper... or in this case, a texter.

I need a new Laptop

I'll be joining work (NVIDIA) on 23rd, July'12. Apparently, a business laptop is thrown at me as soon as I enter. In my attempt to keep all the surprises alive, I had implored my colleagues who had joined earlier to stick "SPOILER ALERT!!!", when they'd post something on our freshmen employee's facebook group. Nonetheless, I had came across the fact that it'd be a Dell or a Lenovo, obviously buisness oriented, sporting a measly NVS 4000mx (nvidia quadro mobile).

My First Gaming Rig

The first thing I wanted to do with my money was not to get a car or save up to buy a place... I want a gaming rig. I have put off gaming for the past two years (at least the major titles) because my current machine is currently four years old. In tech years, a four year old machine is archaic.

HOLY DRAGON! There's a kitchen in my home.

Why am I trying to poison myself, you ask? Well, a robot must cook. It has to fend for itself and be independent. Mombot did help, showing me the ropes around the kitchen and the basics of making myself a decent meal. Honestly, cooking is kinda simple. Sure, I could go on and on about the alchemic magic that occurs in a saucepan when you pour diced tomatoes onto browning onions and garlic, but, I would have no idea what I would be talking about. I am supposed to be a robot and raise zombies and shoot repulsor beams out of my palms. But, I still have to eat. I run on carbs, you see, and to make them more accessible, I gotta cook.
