Cool Reference

Posted: March 31, 2008 in Random

A friend of mine was working on a paper, and he pointed out that one of the references he had to cite is:

W.H. Knox, R.S. Knox, J.F. Hoose and R.N. Zare, Observation of the 0 fs pulse, Optics and Photonics News, April 1, 1990

Now, try reading the authors’ last names together into one phrase, and see what you get…

I posted about Facebook before. It seems that people are taking it to the next level. I have recently stumbled upon two video clips that are created by Facebook fans. They are very well done (especially the second). Take a look at the links below (on Youtube):

Newton’s Laws of Software Development

Posted: February 3, 2007 in Random

Based on the well-known Newton’s laws of motion, and the law of conservation of energy, here are the laws of software development:

Law 1:
Every software developer continues his state of chatting or forwarding mails unless he is assigned work by manager.

Law 2:
The rate of change in the software is directly proportional to the payment received from client and takes place at the quick rate as when deadline force is applied.

Law 3:
For every Use Case Manifestation there is an equal but opposite Software Implementation.

Law 4:
Bugs can neither be created nor be removed from software by a developer. It can only be converted from one form to another. The total number of bugs in the software always remains constant!
