Temperature is crazy

A very cold weekend in DC with a lot of snow, the temperature is crazy and currently we are well below the dry ice levels.

I was watching a recording of the Sun TV singer show, singer [Trivia: How many film songs you have to record to get this title?] Prasanna is quite a personality. The verbal war between Vijay Anthony and him often gets obnoxious. The musical pair have been given the license to “eve tease” every other young contestant in the program. If a juvenile utters the similar language in a bus stand or a train stations he/she would be behind bars in no time for eve teasing. I am no behavioral police, I believe music is divine and judging in a competition is an honorable portfolio, please maintain the sanity of the portfolio. Do you believe that singers Karthik and Chinmayee were Sun TV finds, Mr. A.V. Ramanan Sir we miss you. Where did that quality vanish?

When clean Tamil is a rarity these days on TV, I had a glimpse of Rani Maharani host “Mamathi” (மமதி) , her powerful Tamil language diction and screen presence was quite awesome. If it sounds like a crush, let it be it. Every Video jockey out there on Tami channels must get trained by her.

Please pardon this sinner for the ittle technical talk.

Microsoft Cloud Computing buzz, “AZURE” joins the crowded cloud computing market that is already dominated by IBM [no real proof :)], Sun Microsystems, Google, Amazon etc. Microsoft might be a late entrant into this market, “thought late it would be the latest”. :)

AZURE could be a paradigm shift for Microsoft, contradicting their desktop OS philosophy.

.NET amazes me a lot than any other technology platform today. I have been working in the software industry right from the days of Turbo C in the early 90s till now and have seen/been through a lot of technologies. Microsoft .NET frame work is one technology that amazes me. Microsoft is pumping in lots of tools for the AZURE development, most of them are free. I have signed up for an account to evaluate the architectural perspective with AZURE and its service platforms. You can read more about AZURE here the job market is slow and this would be a good time to learn a new skill set.

Hi,
No,We've not met earlier,infact I've never visited US,but a regular visitor to your blog amazed by your insightful reviews.Nowadays we see a lot of music reviews by self proclaimed experts who are too full of themselves.So i was sort of pissed off by the pretentious attitude,i came here to request you for more posts about music,specifically about our fav musician-ARR

I agree, the eve teasing between judges is getting to my nerves and is well below acceptable behavior. Besides, Prasanna in the last episode showed up as though he was going to a hip-hop concert!!

However much Mahesh proclaims (I find it amusing that he/producer feels the need to do so everytime) that Athiradi Singer show is stupendous, earth shattering etc...Airtel Super Singer will win it hands down for class, style, judges and the quality of contestants!! There is really no comparison at all...
