Last night was watching a movie, "How to lose a guy in 10 days", and all i could do was think of the bike the "hero" was riding! I've seen bikes before... but last night it was just so marvellous! I was in love and constantly thinking of getting one for myself. The bike was metallic silver with a fatter rear wheen... slim ...

I did tell myself from the start that a motorcycle is off limits for Dhaka. I have a concentration span of the size of a peanut and Dhaka is a jungle... with no laws!!! But.. lets see.. if i find a bike like that i might make an exception.


My cousin just called me and the store where we buy guitars and guitar stuff from has now brought over two Epiphone guitars styled after the Gibson Les Paul series!!!Hurray! I am going over to check them out and maybe place an order... It will be soooooooooooooooooooo coooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooool!

Turned on tv last nite ...put to BBC to catch some news. Saw a run on an Iraqi bombing of the ongoing war on TERROR. To run an instinct check i switched to CNN. And my hunch was right.. they were busy covering the elections, and then the capture of a 'radical' muslim imam from britain.

Learnt about something new today. Its called CAPTCHA ! hmmm... got linked into it from my yahoo mail account. Was sending out a mail when i was made to enter a word into a text box from an image. This was apparently for security against spam (as i was mailing to one mail group that i belonged to).

CAPTCHA stands for 'Completely Automated Public Turing Test for Telling Computers and Humans Apart'. So what they do is generate an image with a randomly generated word in it. Its difficult for most existing programs to guess the words accurately from its distorted form in the image. But humans easily comprehend the letters and are able to successfully enter the matching word to identify themselves to be 'HUMAN'!

Well this has proved its use mostly in online service providers' domain like online polls, account creation (with email providers for example) and spam protection.

i am really bored... not just today and now.. i am bored now for a few days... and its all building up something inside. What do i do!??!? Is it work? or just lifE? something has gotten me really tired.


Meanwhile, we are doing something called 'Monkey Testing' today. Dinno anything like that existed. Well, i donno much anymore since i have lost my 'reading habbit'. My concentration span has come down to that of 3-4 lines of blog entries or anything else on a website. I have been sitting on a few novels that i wanted to read for ages. Among them are Parthib, Bricklane, and The international jew. hmmm... i don think there will be an update of this status anytime soon... : )

I finally bought a new processor. It cost 25k BD money. ITs a DigiTech GNX3. its kinda bulky and heavy. But its good where it really counts. its got really good preset tones. Especially the bass tones and the acoustic tones are really nice.

I need to spend time reading its manual tho if i ever want to unravel all its powers. Wish me luch coz i hate reading and otherwise, it'll just be a waste of money.

Practice this friday, with my new processor!
