Back to Regular Posting after Small Break

Well, not that small really. Four months of inactivity is quite significant for a blog, ain't it? I have been very busy with my first day job at Tech Mahindra. Being a fresher, I had to undergo training for 3 months which meant putting invisible chains and locks on this blog! What with classes during the day and practice through the night, it was impossible to update the blog on a regular basis. I came to know the meaning of hectic life during that time. But my training days have been amazing and it warrants a post of its own. Maybe I might think of writing on that sometime (more…)

Welcome to Abhinav Sonkar dot Com Version 2 – Refurnished and Redesigned!

Regular readers would have already noticed the renovation of this blog which had kept me busy for quite some time in the past week. There were other things that had arrested my attention but I would allude to it in a different post. The previous design had been in use since the start of this blog nine months ago. It was one of my favorites but the design and the space it provided were constricting the growth of the blog and hence I decided to look for a new design. Now I am not yet financially sound enough to look for a unique premium design or hire a designer, so I started my search for a good free design that…

The Best Resignation Letter Ever !!

Actual letter of resignation from an employee at Zantex Computers, USA, to her boss, who apparently resigned very soon afterwards! Dear Mr. Baker, As a graduate of an institution of higher education, I have a few very basic expectations. Chief among these is that my direct superiors have an intellect that ranges above the common ground squirrel. After your consistent and annoying harassment of my coworkers and me during the commission of our duties, I can only surmise that you are one of the few true genetic wastes of our time. Asking me, a network administrator, to explain every little nuance of everything I do each time you happen to stroll into my office is not only a waste of…
