Presenting you revamped homepage

'An interview a day keeps you HELL busy and drained'!
And this is far from exaggeration. The statement perfectly reflects my state a week ago for 3-4 weeks then! Anyway, the reason I'm posting is... Long Long ago at the bottom of this post I had promised that I'll revamp my homepage.
And here you go... I have delivered to that promise.

I have been working on this for quite some time, putting in an hour every time I wanted a break from regular routine. It's been a tough yet pleasurable job to make it reasonably presentable and put in the right stuff. There are a lot of sections that needs work and are still under development, but there are a lot of things that should interest you nonetheless.

For maximum viewing pleasure, you should experiment changing the theme, font, font-size, etc. with buttons on the right hand of the webpage, but for most of you default should look good enough. Fonts on my system are not perfect, so the default doesn't look sexy enough on mine.

I appreciate your feedback and criticism, so don't hesitate to share it over this post or personally. BTW, I'm looking for good and cheap linux-based hosting service, I'm open to good recommendations. Ones that I know are
  1. VPSLink
  2. bluehost

Too much algos is bad

You know you have studied enough algorithms to touch your psyche from the deep when:

You are trying to get up in the morning and the first thing that runs through your mind is 'God! I can wake up in 5-P-3, or P(5,3) ways today!' :)
- or -
'I have to reach school in O(1) time today!
- or -
You draw Giant Eagle's map and apply TSP (Traveling Salesman Problem) on it before you go out to buy grocery!
- or -
Come up with an elaborate scheme to share books with friends so you all can study for interviews, without deadlocking!
- or -
You wonder: if I mask the last bit of third number on the number plate of fifth car, I'll have a perfect Fibonacci Series!

Happy Birthday Blog!

Happy Birthday... this time for my blog :) Yes, I haven't been celebrating my blog's birthday, this time I thought let me be a little considerate.

Blog has grown 4 years old as of 7th of October 2008. Here is _the_ very first test post, and this was the first actual entry I posted: The Village: Mr. M. Night. Looking up to blogging more intently in coming years.

P.S. Thanks for your wishes in advance :)
