    Wow where did that year go. My boys are now almost 13 months old. Feels like only yesterday that they were born.

    Appeared for my first interview yesterday (Wipro), and apparently the manager was so satisfied that he gave me his card and asked me to contact him after six months time and he will see to it that I get promotions if I deserve them (that was after I asked him about my career advancements)... He took half an hour interviewing me, where other candidates just took 5 minutes....
    The program also covers my masters (full course fees paid)...

    Not sure though whether I will go with it. Will sit for a few more interviews. But the first one went more than just perfect... I guess it's a milestone... :-D

    Well, I am just 17500 short of you... Is that an achievement?? :-P
    500 posts...mostly in the C forums though...

    BTW I got selected for two more jobs (out of the three I applied for)... Now I've a few options open. Don't know though, the first one pays a little less but covers the master's degree. And the others pay well, but I will be without the post graduation...
    Let's see, I've a month to decide...

    Never thought about it in those terms... kinda interesting

    I guess I've been on DS for 25.714% of my life... crazy when you think about it like that, isn't it?

    Not sure of the exact date, but ... 5 years. 1400+ posts, even a few of them, hopefully, being helpful.

    It appears I passed my 2 year mark on here a few months ago. woo hoo..

    College takes away all the time I could be spent trolling the CSS forum, if I ever wished to do it.
