I know my generation was really impacted by Michael Jackson and his breakdance. How did the “King of Pop” affect you?

    Very saddend at the sudden turn of events. Was looking forward to his July concerts. Truly a mega entertainer of our times, Michael Jackson defined the musical taste of my generation of folks growing up in Indian Metros as much as it did in America. Can’t forget the chills I got while watching the live transmission of Grammy awards (my first time ever) back in early eigthties when MJ swept the night with a boatload of grammies.Thinking of him since yesterday has transmitted me to that time period and I can vividly remember all the non-academic stuff we used to do in highschool ..be it dancing to the tune of “Beat it”. “Thriller” or Moon walking.. .

    A quintessential entertainer since the age of 5, this one man literally introduced me to pop music and hence will be always remembered fondly ..RIP

    When we went looking for an apartment here a couple years ago, we had two primary considerations in addition to the usual ones: walking distance from a Red Line subway stop, and fiber-based Internet access. The latter is easy to spot if you know what to look for, starting with too many wires on the

    Now that it’s Friday, I can finally come up for air and say that both the MySQL and Percona Conferences (which I wrote about earlier) surpassed my expectations. Having the two going on semi-concurrently worked out pretty well. At no time did I find myself without at least two sessions I wanted to see. Often times I had to really cut lunch short to make sure I didn’t miss anything. Other MySQL Conference veterans I asked has very similar responses….

    Amidst all the Oracle/Sun/MySQL news today, the MySQL Conference kicks off this week. So I just spent a few minutes putting together my picks for the sessions I’d like to attend at the MySQL Conference and the Percona Performance Conference (schedule).

Getting a little carried away with myself there. These are some really cute photos featuring red nails and
