Posted by Bala on May 30, 2005

Its being a long time i blogged. After returning from bangalore, I saw many of my old school friends. We chatted together and shared about the college days incidents. I went to school to enquire about possibilites of starting Alumni Association but the response was not so great. They said, “I will send you the details to your home itself”. But didn’t got any info. Need to visit the school again. Roaming in the streets with friends. Waiting for the Wipro Joining date. Got the SBI kit for depositing the money. Need to start prepare for the Wipro Training.

Final touch of final day

Posted by Bala on May 8, 2005

Final day at Madurai. I vacated the hostel on April 30, my parents and my brother came to madurai to pick me up. We stayed in College House. Went to Meenakshi temple that evening. On May 1st we went to Thiruparankundram and went to Alagar Kovil, Palamuthircholai. We enjoyed a lot after long time since we didn’t go anywhere for the past 6 years. So it was a enjoyable day for our family. At last one incident happened. My mom forgot to raise the car windows. After returning from temple, we found that somebody stolen our camera which was not ours, it was my friend’s camera so i was disappointed 😦 Getting something from a friend and losing that, it hurts a lot.

Recap of 8th Semester Exams…

Posted by Bala on April 21, 2005

Exam #1. Parallel Processing and Computing:
For this exam i studied about 700 pages. This was the heavy portion we studied here in this college. But the subject was very interesting. It deals with Parallel Computing concepts. Each unit covers about 7 topics. Each topic had good explanatory answers and examples. I am able to study only 3 units completely and from 2 other units i just studied few selected questions. The question paper was fine and i done it fair.

Exam #2: Multimedia Systems
This subject is also interesting one. Three units are very interesting which deals about compression techniques like mpeg, jpeg etc., Last two units very boring which tells about Multimedia Operating Systems and other stuffs. The question paper is very lengthy. Each question got two subdivisions. Any way i am able to finish the Question paper.

Exam #3: Operating System Design
The subject i like the most, because its my area of interest. I studied superbly for this exam. I left 2 topics Hard Disk Driver and IO software. But my bad time those questions are asked but i wrote some relevant answer. Overall performance is fair (not upto expectation).

Exam #4: Engineering Economics and Management
This subject interesting to study but hard to reproduce in the paper. This paper gives me idea about management techinques. The question paper is easy. But i am not able to recollect points but i wrote what ever comes to my mind.

Exam #5: Network Security (Elective 1)
Very little portion. Question paper is very easy. Among all the subjects i wrote this exam superbly.

Exam #6: Mobile Applications (Elective 2)
Very easy paper to study. This paper gives idea about WML. How JSP, ASP are used in wireless application programming etc., Question paper very lengthy. Question paper covers the entire syllabus. I wrote some what fine.
This is my last theory exam as a UG Student.

Waiting for results which might be on May 6th.

Bad Luck…

Posted by Bala on April 14, 2005

This monday i went to B.Arch Department for getting my photograph taken in the College Day. I found that my photo and few of photos who got medals next to me got exposed. I felt very sad. The college photographer gave me a idea to clip the portion of medal recieving in the College Day Video CD. I went to ECE Department sat there around 3 hours for copying the Video CD ( the system is dead slow ). I watched the Video at Hostel. The camera man initally stood behind the medal winners and was recording. At the time i receive the medal the camera man switched off the camera and changed the direction of Coverage. So my portion is missing in the Video also. So i got no photographs standing with Dr.Venu Srinvasan,Managing Director, Sundaram Motors.
Bad Luck 😦

Posted by Bala on March 19, 2005

Yesterday is the last working day of our college. Also College Day has been conducted yesterday. I am sitting in the auditorium to receive the Medal for the Best Outgoing CSE student while my class mates roamed all over the college. As usual the function didn’t started on time. The function’s chiefguest was Dr.Venu Srinvasan, Managing Director, Sundaram Motors. His speech was really great. I received a silver medal for him and i feel very happy. After receiving the medal i showed it to Shalinie mam and joined with my class mates for roaming. We all sit at a place and chatted for till 10:30 PM. We spoke how we entered this college and we spent time, likes and dislikes etc., Finally we went saying bye in words alone.
