Desktop vs Laptop


Courtesy to the mass bunk planned on the auspicious occasion of Annual Sports Meet , I am back home earlier than the schedule . (thinking…Dean must have won the gold in 100 m sprint) .

Back from the sucking wi-fi of the college to the marvellous Broadband . Back from the restricted surfing ( May DansGuardian go to hell ) to the unrestricted world wide web . Back from the laptop to my beautiful and powerful Desktop .

Almost after two months of absence , I have again got my hands across my Desktop , thinking why I missed it so much ??

>> Due to some hardware restrictions , I am unable to install XP on my notebook (or for that matter , even Ubuntu) . Its only compatible with Vista (hope a patch is released very soon) . Vista might have better graphics but it consumes a lot of CPU usage , not to forget the irritating UAC and the problems faced during Software Installation (especially games) 😡 .

>> Get your notebook running for few hours continously and it will resemble Goblet of Fire , burning like hell . Whereas my desktop never complaints even if I get it running for consecutive days 🙂 .

>> Intel vs AMD Athlon . Haven’t faced any serious difference yet .

>> 1 GB RAM vs 2 GB RAM . Well that advantage is nullified by the presence of Vista . XP + 1 GB RAM = Vista + 2 GB RAM . No serious loss in processing speed .

>> 256 MB ATI Radeon Graphics card in my notebook !! But what for ?Vista won’t allow an uniterrupted execution of Counter Strike or NFS .i

>> Of course I can carry my notebook , plug it in anywhere I want (sneak into administrative block at midnight where bandwidth is fantastic)

>> 250 GB vs 80 GB ??? Yeah I can store a lot of study material in my notebook as compared to Mr. Desktop .

>> Well you can flip your laptop 360 degrees in the air but won’t dare to perform any such experiment with your desktop . 😉

In short , both the system have their plus points but one thing that is conclusive is that



Assignment # 26 : Mass Bunk


Objective : to convince whole class to bunk a lecture you are not interested to attend

Requirements :  A class with a majority of good for nothing dormant elements , a CR (class representative) who is always ready to get banged , a dumb lecturer , a new release in theatre , few active back benchers.

Theory :

Mass Bunk :

“ The tactical use of the CR ( to convince the fellow muggers ) to achieve your goal of escaping the mental torture that could occur otherwise . This activity is highly appreciated by majority of students and is highly loathed by the faculty and the studious lot . Occasional bunks go unnoticed , but few of them in quick succession will surely get the HOD interested .“

CR :

“The person who is often used by the batchmates as a escape goat when HOD enters the scene . Whatever wrong happens in the jungle, either this person is supposed to have an explanation for that , or else he is a goner . Usually a mugger , one to have a sympathy with “

Back Benchers :

“The masterminds of the jungle , who most often initiate the spark and force the CR to set the jungle on fire . Least interested in study , most of them have a short attendance , the most important component in the bunks ( yet , are never highlighted ) . Usually work in groups and communicate via. code language .”

Result : “A happy bunch of kids going back to do something useful , some to the canteen , others to their respective hostel rooms (all the muggers) and occasionally a few of them head to the HOD to launch a complaint against the anti social elements (carnivores of the jungle) .”

Precautions :

  • Always have a check on how the front row (usually the girls) reacts when the topic is first brought into their notice .
  • Be quick to take your action . If the lecturer appears in the scene , be quick to come back to your position as if you were upto nothing .
  • Always have a control over the CR . An angry CR might lead to 100% classes , which in turn cant get you detained due to short attendance .
  • Play safe . Bunk classes and enjoy life . 😀

The Flickr Tag


Well I am back to the college . Classes have started , but only officially *ahem ahem* . The studious lots have decided not to commence the classes until Republic Day is seen off . So here I am , regretting my decision to return back , a whole week earlier than when I should have . I could have watched half of the Australian Open and another episode of the roadies , had I not rushed back so early 😡 Bad luck .
