In a classroom

The last time I sat in a classroom was probably way back in college. That was a long time ago. Although I have to been to corporate trainings before, somehow they don't really count. You have to be in a college campus for the true effect.

I am in two classes now. One for Microsoft IIS and one for Linux. One I was told to go to. One I was always interested in going to. For one I head north and for the other I head east.

The two technologies are so vastly different. One is proprietary and insecure. The other, open and vastly secure. An oxymoron of sorts!

I am enjoying the whole class thing. The only part not very enjoyable is the commute. All these days I have been complaining about my every day off-highway office commute. Now I end up doing highway commute, bumper to bumper(B2B) for about 4 hours a day. Yikes !!!! One appreciates things only when one gets it worse (or something like that )

When you are in B2B traffic, you have plenty of time to observe fellow commuters. It is true. Most Ladies are either on their cell phones or smoking. Most guys are either digging their noses or pretending that they didn't do it :)
