Happy Bday Blog...

Today is my blog's first birthday. I started blogging on Feb 19'05.... I looked back the first entry, it was a rant about staying in office on weekends... phew came a long way since.

BTW have an interview with Microsoft on monday so wish me best of luck. This will be my first technical interview (face 2 face... technically the first was Intel's). I was lucky enough to get jobs without being interviewed in India (no I did not use reference so dont raise your eyebrows). I am having a funny feeling in my stomach as there is so much to study in less time. I cant possibly brush all that I have learnt in a span of two days. Am hoping for the best...the interview call itself came as a surprise to me as my resume did not have any Windoze project in it and shouts Linux all over... well anything for cash.... yeah go hit me with something.

Moreover my GPA(3.44) makes me feel ostracized. Earlier all the Indians in US blabbered about fairer education system and said that higher GPA did not count, but companies like TI, AMD etc who work more on the lines of device drivers and system software want a GPA of atleast 3.5 !!! I guess I will have to work harder (less of computer time and more of reading time) next time :|

Came across this wonderful guide by Joel on interview techniques... a must read for all tech students.
