Its HIGH voltage, I play with it ....

Service Engineering ... Thats what I do now. More precisely, a kinda reverse engineering. Identifying the faulty component and replacing it with a new. Sound quiet easy huh ? But guys ... .this is the damn-est job u can find in electronic industry.

yesterday I received one specimen with a small note on it. "No ip" - it means its dead. Its not working. I started working with standard procedure.

AC mains circuit - Continuity tested, No shortage. Next AC Filter circuit - its little weird, I'll check it later... Next Bridge rectifier - No burns or smoke trace. IGBT and gate circuit - Nothing wrong. uC - tested. Buses and cables continuity tested.

After 1 hour I cant find anything wrong with this thing. I assembled and switched on... Nothing. I cant even find any smell of burned component. I was like ...grrr. ' whats wrong with this thing. I was sure fault will be in the High voltage section. After the bridge to the GATE. I took and Hold the PCB one hand and took the tester and touched it somewhere on the lids. @@## FLASH ##@@


"Hey wake up ... Dont u need lunch today ?? " My friend is calling me. 'What happened ! Where in a world ..... ' "Its not good to sleep in duty time. U'll get scolding" - He advised me and walked to the door. I was still in confusion. I looked watch and its 1 o'clock. I looked my table and I just started to realise what happened.

I touched a fully charged capacitor. Since its a capacitor and dont have any amps it cant do any physical damage to victim. U'll be just blacked out. The same principle is used in stun-guns.

Anyway that was a nice piece of experience.

American Continental Airlines SUCKS !

YES... Americans sucks sometime.

This is pathetic. If this is the case of former president of India, as a poor citizen of India, what guarantee do I have that I'll not be forced to stand naked and asked to bend over for a security check ? Those days are not too far fellow Indians.

Indian laws exempt dignitaries like former presidents, ex-PMs, Chief Justice of India and even Robert Vadra from being frisked at airports.

"As Kalam was about to board his flight to New York around 10pm, he was put through ladder point security under which the former President was frisked completely. He was also asked to take off his shoes, despite accompanying CISF personnel protesting to the airline staff that Kalam was an ex-President and exempt from such checks. While the airline did not budge, the unassuming Kalam went through the process without any fuss. " --- Indiatimes

For me this is not just a protocol violation. More than just a humiliation.

Its great.. they apologised !

"“We have tendered a formal apology and we sincerely hope he will fly with us again,” Continental Airlines said in a statement.

“Our intention was never to offend Dr Kalam or the sentiments of the people of India,” the airline said. “We apologise to Dr Kalam for any misunderstanding and/or inconvenience caused related to the security check,” it added.

“We reiterate our commitment to comply with the regulations mandated by local authorities (Bureau of Civil Aviation Security) and US authorities,” the airline said.

REMEMBER.. ........So shall u reap.! Not every Indian is duff and dump.

Updates ::::

I have a testimonial for u Continental's Assholes... just wait.

Engg method of Handling situation.

A Programmer and an Engineer are sitting next to each other on a long flight from LA to NY. The Programmer leans over to the Engineer and asks if he would like to play a fun game. The Engineer just wants to take a nap, so he politely declines and rolls over to the window to catch a few winks.

The Programmer persists and explains that the game is real easy and a lotta fun. He explains "I ask you a question, and if you don't know the answer, you pay me $5. Then you ask me a question, and if I don't know the answer, I'll pay you $5." Again, the Engineer politely declines and tries to get to sleep.

The Programmer, now somewhat agitated, says, "OK, if you don't know the answer you pay me $5, and if I don't know the answer, I'll pay you $50!" This catches the Engineer's attention, and he sees no end to this torment unless he plays, so he agrees to the game. The Programmer asks the first question. "What's the distance from the earth to the moon?" The Engineer doesn't say a word, but reaches into his wallet, pulls out a five dollar bill and hands it to the Programmer.

Now, it's the Engineer's turn. He asks the Programmer
"What goes up hill with three legs, and comes down on four?"
The Programmer looks up at him with a puzzled look. He takes out his laptop computer and searches all of his references. He taps into the Airphone with his modem and searches the net and the Library of Congress. Frustrated, he sends e-mail to his co-workers -- all to no avail.

After about an hour, he wakes the Engineer and hands him $50. The Engineer politely takes the $50 and turns away to try to get back to sleep. The Programmer, more than a little miffed, shakes the Engineer and asks "Well, so what's the answer?"

Without a word, the Engineer reaches into his wallet, hands the Programmer $5, and turns away to get back to sleep.

Words & Pics of Life !

Something has been taken from deep inside of me
The secret I've kept locked away no one can ever see
Wounds so deep they never show they never go away
Like moving pictures in my head for years and years they've played

Cure For The Itch ...

People are fine in finding a way to express their feelings towards the authorities. Some whacked wicked ideas are more powerful and directive that, even the most stupid ass in the chairs of power can understand and get noticed, about the situation.

I found this on a road while i was riding back to home. Banana plant in a gutter, right in the middle of road. Better expressive than a placard. . .

Whats the logic behind my blog name.. " I CAN PRETEND "

Well one of my friend asked me whats the logic behind my blog name. Well and I thought I should post about that.

Well, starting is this... I can pretend anything whats others are expected me to be or expecting from me.

I can pretend "happy",
I can pretend "angry",
I can pretend that i'm "so stupid",
I can pretend that i'm "so intelligent",
I can pretend that i'm a "Geek",
I can pretend that i'm a "freak",
I can pretend that i'm "rich"
I can pretend that i'm "poor"
I can pretend that i'm "educated"
I can pretend that i'm "numb"
I can pretend this ....
I can pretend that ......

I cant recollect the day I became a fan of Linken Park. The songs were so EXPRESSIVE that I became an actual addict to the songs. They were .. jus freakin coooooooool. The songs were exactly the same ..what I wanned to sing, what i wanned to hear. And still am a freakin fan of them. And I found the word that used in one of their song that can stand for me in the crowed " I can pretend ...". Its just that beautiful and i love those songs and those words. So I thought I should borrow that word and I can use it. Its just because i found thats more opt for me. So Thats it... I am using it now.
So totaly am pretending everytime and everything... Nobody, except God, knows whats going on my mind. ( but my mom, --mom only-- can figure it out that when i am tensed .. god knows how !!)

So please, dont hesitate to tell me ..howz 'my logic'... in naming my blog ??

Nothing is better than this !

Its raining heavily in my place .... its all wet and SOOO COOOOOL. I love the rain drops hitting the glass and disappearing. I love rain !

A pattern just showed up on glass because of the temperature difference!

After the rain was over.
I felt like tear still there.

Man ... when i came home, i got a call from Ju... Aye u coming to pond. Others are waiting there... YEAH ! What a question.... just right time, and right call for the right person.... hi hi *wicked*

Its been a year ... We went for swimming. Actually its not just swimming. Its a different thing. A different experience...

Some dudes starts the showoffs... Different styles of jumpings in to water, Including Front dive, Tumble dive, Butterfly... When it gets bored, we started racing. by pulling others to back no one let the other to win.

finally started touch and run. This is the most interesting game. There will be runners and chasers. Start with one chaser and rest as runners. Chasers will have chase the all runners and try to touch them in their head. Actually he have to touch the head, when the runner's head is above the water. If he touches, that guys will become a chaser, so totaly 2 chaser, and game continues. It continues to the last runner. The last one who survive the chase is the winner. Rules are simple... you cant go out of water. No kicks and punches... but you can hold the hands of the one chasing you, You can flush water to the face of chaser..

Its like a battle in water. Really tough game.. I used to play when i was a kid. I really felt my old times. There a lot maneuvering techniques you have to learn. but its really interesting.

After effects:
1) I got a scratch one right wings from the wall of pond.
2) My nostrils are aching.
3) Eyes are burning.
4) Somebody kicked my chest underwater, i cant figure who did that...!
5) lolz i drank a lot of water too...
6) i can catch a fever tonight (most probably)

I gotta freeky hair style... looks so cool. !
