A short note on how you are caught with your proverbial ‘pants down’. And in Bangalore, is it me or is the dates booked full only until 18 Oct, 2009?

Skills:

1. Troubleshooting

P.S: OK…. I know I’m not keeping up my promise to give a weekly update. Hell, I don’t even remember when I had last updated…. it’s something they call ‘procrastination’…. But been making progress on and off in my prep though… I promise to have an entry for the latest progress….
