Truth beind Engineering

When you’re working with TBs and PBs of data you get some serious realizations. Beautifully put forth in the penultimate slide of this presentation.

All engineering solutions are transient.

Nothing’s perfect but some solutions are good enough for a while.

Scalability solutions aren’t magic. They involve partitioning, indexing and replication.

All data for real-time queries MUST be in memory.

Disk is for writes only.

Some problems can be solved by pre-computation, but a lot can’t.

Exploit locality where possible.

All Black’s HAKA

Some time back a friend of mine suggested me to see a video on Youtube. The video was about the All Black’s Haka. Any sports enthusiast and passionate person, like me :D, would love this holy ritual (if you call it so). This video which I provide in this post has subtitles and explains the Haka lyrics too. When I saw it for the first time, I could feel the intensity and the condition of the opposition team :D. No wonder why the Kiwis are the Best at Rugby.

10 reasons why your computer is better than your girlfriend

This one gives me hope 😀

1.) She doesn’t talk back to you. At best she beeps or gives you the silent treatment.

2.) She provides you with more information than your girlfriend will ever know.

3.) When you upgrade you know the costs up front.

4.) You can stare at tons of other girls and your computer will never get mad at you.

5.) You can shut her down whenever you get tired of her.

6.) Troubleshooting your computer is much easier than your GF.

7.) Your computer holds many valuable bits of information about your past and still likes you.

8.) You can press your computers buttons without any worry of repercussions.

9.) Your computer won’t sleep with your best friend or cheat on you.

10.) Your computer will cost a lot less than any girlfriend!

Why some men prefer dogs over women

Got it from a blog.. worth sharing here 😀

1. The later you are, the more excited your dogs are to see you.

2. Dogs don’t notice if you call them by another dog’s name.

3. Dogs like it if you leave a lot of things on the floor.

4. A dog’s parents never visit.

5. Dogs agree that you have to raise your voice to get your point across.

6. You never have to wait for a dog; they’re ready to go 24 hours a day.

7. Dogs find you amusing when you’re drunk.

8. Dogs like to go hunting and fishing.

9. A dog will not wake you up at night to ask, ‘If I died, would you get another dog?’

10. If a dog has babies, you can put an ad in the paper and give them away.

11. A dog will let you put a studded collar on it without calling you a pervert.

12. If a dog smells another dog on you, they don’t get mad. They just think it’s interesting.

13. Dogs like to ride in the back of a pickup truck.

And last, but not least:

14. If a dog leaves, it won’t take half of your stuff.

A Break

This is my 50th post on this blog 🙂

I’ve come a long way I guess :P, these 50 posts used up a lot of my time which is good coz I had a lot of it to waste :D. Anyways I see that this blog has more than 125 awesum programming and interview problems and now even my resources have kinda dried out .. so I’ll give the blog a break and get myself upto something else.. maybe I’ll start a new serial ( any suggestions are welcome 🙂 ). I’ll be active towards the comments and feel free to ask for hints and solution confirmations. Also some of you have suggested to organize the blog, lemme see how much I can do in that regard :D.

I’ll try to get back soon..


This is NOT the way to start ;)

Thankfully I got this pretty soon 😉
