VIM
It's my fifth year playing with Linux and specially vim. Yesterday, I was reading a book name VIM Hacking and I was surprised with the amount of work VIM can do. And more surprisingly there are almost 40 to 50% special hacks which I'm not even aware of. To me, this book is really special.

DCOM
The dead protocol and my task is to do some research on this project before coding a linux testing client for it :(. I hate you micr0$0ft.
The Shora CEO
I did a mistake in joining a company which it self was nothing just a piece of shit, and only because of the CEO (shora). The guy is horrible, I just can't believe guy like him exist in world. For me he is just "shoot on sight" kind of a person. I joined his company on 27 December, and coded a 10gig sniffer(kernel mamped sniffer), and front end application. He promised me to get an office in Pakistan which he refused. And instead of making a team in Pakistan he handed over the project to xyz on 12 march. and on 14 march, he behaved abnormally with me, just to make me feel bad and leave company. That's what I did and quit job on 14th of march. That was the shocking experience of my life. I worked for him 2.5 months and he ended up paying me just one month. I remember I was feeling so stress at his behavior. I was alone in home and my father was in Pindi. I decided to spend some time with relatives, just to keep my self away from the thought which kept coming and making me feel horrible. I did this and left for Pindi the next day. Meanwhile "Shora" kept calling me to make me feel bad and forget about the idea of getting my remaining pay and I kept listening quietly. on 20th, I mailed my CV to xyz and got an interview call on 22 march. I was in Peshawar at that time and rushed back to Lahore.
Interview went great and I got job. I was so happy because once I was not selected in my previous appearance in xyz. But that interview was so helpful for me to get the idea of where I stand and what's need to be done. I really worked hard on the missing/weak skill set and I had no problem in getting interview clear this time.
Now after getting job in xyz, new chapter of my life opened. On the next day I received call from "shora" saying, "masood It's nice you joined xyz and I recommended you as they were not sure may be to hire you or not. And it would be great if you join my project under xyz.". I refused straight away, saying "I don't wanna work for you". He apologies and said lets talk on Monday, 26th, which was my first day in xyz. I refused to work for him in front of my VP. He said, "ok,... If you don't want to work then I'll make you leave this job as I have a contract with xyz and it also state that they will never hire an X of my company". For me It was a joke of the day, as there was no such contract because when they signed the contract I was present there and I got the job same day I appeared on my interview so there was no confirmation left to be taken, which later confirmed by the VP. But he just wanted to make me work for him as he was struggling with the new guys he was working with.
So I decided to work for him on a condition if he pay me my remaining salary, which he accepted but his condition was to pay me half and the remaining half when the project finishes. I accepted it too and I started working on his project but under the umbrella of xyz. After two week there was no outcome of the commitment which he made. So I refused to work, again and now this time I challenge him to do any thing he want. I was forced by my mother not to take any illegal action against him. But in Pakistan it's hard to get some thing done legally. He threatened using the name of his uncle, who is a magistrate. And wanted to take an action against me through him. Now it was too much for me to hear all this quietly. I said look, "If I had any attention to take my money back, I would have don't it till now by hook or by crock. And do what ever you can do, let me see what you can do".
I reported my VP and refused to work for him, which he accepted and now I'm currenlty working with another team on a separate project.
"Shora" is now looking for a guy to help him out and finish his Idoit product. Some time I hate to see him around and some time I feel to pay him money to go and get your self a good book about human resource management. The two other guy of xyz refused to work for him because they find him mentally sick.

Orkut
Back in the days of Mahvi, some one name Mishal meet me on naseeb. But she was more like a hello-hi girl in my list. We never talk most of the time and truly speaking, I even forgot she is SHE :). She wanted me to re join orkut which I left (truly cause of mahvi). Anyway, Mishal is from Lahore and she is nice. In fact not as good/Chilling as Mahvi was at first appearance/meeting. And the most important stuff, I'm not thinking other then to be a nice friend with her (Some thing I learned from mahvi).
I missed mahvi alot when I was in so stress because of my "shora" boss, durring the period of march 12 till April 1 but I know every thing will fade away as the time goes on. God Bless you Mahvi Where ever you are.
Today Ami going Canada for a full 1 year :(. Will Miss you mom.

NetEm
Yesterday I tried network emulation for a Intelligent switch product, under development in Linux. It saved my ass from working hours to get a simulation work done.

Strange
There is some thing really bugging me for the last 20 days. I don't have the solution for it other then just to wait and see. The only question I ask, too often, Is there any way to spend life peacefully with every thing going smoothly around?
I lose my temper, not to often, specially when some one deceive me. But my reaction to what happen previously is totally opposite of my nature. I'm just waiting calmly for the guy to realize it himself. It's really hard to smile and talk to a person who has done some real bad to you and you fucking life. Parents only teach to respect the elder but they should also teach us how to treat elder bastards.
