How a Millionaire’s Brain Works…

September 17, 2007

A man walked into a bank in New York City one day and asked for the loan officer.

He told the loan officer that he was going to Philippines on business for two weeks and needed to borrow $5,000. The bank officer told him that the bank would need some form of security for the loan.

Then the man handed over the keys to a new Ferrari parked on the street in front of the bank. He produced the title and everything checked out The loan officer agreed to accept the car as collateral for the loan.The bank’s president and its officers all enjoyed a good laugh at the guy for using a $250,000 Ferrari as collateral against a $5,000 loan.

An employee of the bank then drove the Ferrari into the bank’s underground garage and parked it there.Two weeks later, the guy returned, repaid the $5,000 and the interest, which came to $15.41.

The loan officer said, “Sir, we are very happy to have had and this transaction has worked out very nicely, but we are a little puzzled. While you were away, we checked you out and found that you are a multi millionaire. What puzzles us is, why would you bother to borrow “$5,000″.

The millionaire replied: “Where else in New York City can I park my car for $15.41 and expect it to be there when I return”

My computer

August 9, 2007

Yesterday, during a casual conversation with my manager, I tell him that some of the algorithms that I have written are taking almost a day to run and so on.. just to tell him how intense the computation of the programs I run is (Had to somehow tell him that I wudnt be working a lot in the next week..) Long story short, now I now have a machine in my office with 3 GB ram, 700 GB hard-disk, XEON® X5355 Quad-Core 2.66GHz 1333FSB (which I think is 8 processors of 2.66GHz each), NVIDIA Quadro NVS 285 and a huge LCD screeenn.. I feel just like a kid again … not able to just resist bragging about this 😀

P.S : Did I tell you about that time when I downloaded a movie from stage6.divx.com at 10 MB per sec?
P.S2 : I’m coming to India in Dec.

Unlimited DVDs

July 19, 2007

Unlimited DVDs at just 17 bucks a month. Well this is how it works with netflix . At any time I can order 3 movies and then I mail them back one, they send me one in the queue the next day! I just love the brilliant idea that netflix has come up with. This seems to remind me of the magazine thing that they have in or desi apartments in India. Finally, they are catching upp here 😉

I got my subscription started yesterday and Full Metal Alchemist ,Rocky Balboa, Casino Royale, all movies that I have seen, are on the way. I love the movie recommendations that they give. I ended up recommending 132 movies so that they could finally fine tune what I love and now they are recommending the best stuff – 300, Departed, Animatrix, Godfather, GoodFellas.. Just cant wait to watch atleast 50 movies before summer!

P.S : I just watched Hyd Blues 1 & 2 back to back and its darn gud! I can sooo relate to hb1 !!! Kyaa potti hai bhai !

Reminder: Buy Facebook stocks when they go public.
