Its a ton!

Thursday, May 13th, 2010

No, Sachin’s still some time away from hitting his 47th ton. Well with a lot of cheap jokes about Sachin and his new Twitter account doing the rounds on the web, I thought I might just have a dig at him as well. ;-) Plus I got a great start to an even greater notification post. Now I would not want the readers of this blog who happen to be die hard Sachin fans to be offended with this useless dig. I want him to hit that 47th don just as badly as you. But its beyond the scope of discussion of this blog.

So Sachin’s not hit a ton so who did? We did! :-D Yes Yes Yes! We clocked our 100th user on the blog last sunday at 9:32 PM IST, barely 8 days after we flung open our doors to the world. Its quite an achievement I got to admit. Been a web administrator for a few years now but this is one of the highest registration rates I have seen till date. Thank you so much for supporting this blog in the way that you all have.

I know what you are thinking. ‘OMG this is news! What on earth took you 5 days to publish it to the blog?!‘ In my defense, I was busy with my side business a.k.a. academics. It might sound as an unnecessary explanation but I like to keep the slate as clean as possible. ;-)

Off I go now to crank up the community website. (Insider News: We are making some good progress on it). Have fun blogging or simply reading what others have written. I shall see you pretty soon!

Cheers
Imran Ali

Ready set go!

Yes! That’s how I would sum today’s updates. After months of planning between me and Shariq(Rahul and Adnan had their cameos as well), we finally seem to have a team which will take on this tedious job. Ankit and Sameet are officially a part of the big league of passionate JMI FET students and alumni that are trying to turn a dream into reality.

Here’s a quick pic of us in ultra happy decision making mode. ;-)

The mood is definitely upbeat. The prospects that this project holds is good enough to motivate us all which is pretty evident from the pic above. We will soon be publishing details of how we go about doing our job. Regular status updates shall follow. :-)
