Oh Snap!

Oh,Snap-2 : Social Meltdown

The socially active peeps would’ve been aware of the social meltdown last night.Serious Twitter Outage Ongoing, Denial Of Service Attack that took a toll on nearly 45 million tweeple(twitter+people)

Even the largest sites still have occasional outages.Yahoo suffered 15 minutes of system wide downtime the day before, & we’re yet to know from them what went wrong..Facebook seemed down too..probably because all of the twitter traffic got redirected there 😛 (WHat am  I & ppl like me? The Social Snoopers or jus the one’s who get excited/vexed at such downtimes) You gotta experience such stuff cos they’re like the eclipse that we get to witness like once in a lifetime 😛 #farfetched alright,I know 😀

twit ANyway..All this meltdown are causes for more jabber on the social N/w which is fun for most of the jobless tweeps and not-so-fun for the other kind..whoever they be.(My aunt says everyone on twitter is jobless..else why would they want the whole world to know what they’re upto..Neva mind ..Its just Gen Gap I tell them)

Well It was time for me to switch on the fourth best thing to internet-The TV.

P.P.S: HBO has been replaced(One of the numerous woes of a 2009 passed out grad student,without a call from the company(s) she got placed in) And this is the replacement :   —->

How can TBO(Tamil Box Office which should be called MBO.for mokkai as it airs Captain’s and TR’s and other classics) possibly replace HBO :((

Well Have a good Weekend ahead,everybody! 🙂

    Twitter and Facebook DDoS Attacks Targeted One Man WTH ?!?! One Man?!

    And this is what FB had to say today : ” The distributed denial-of-service attack that caused issues with accessing Facebook and other sites earlier today appears to have been directed at an individual, rather than at the sites themselves.”

  3. So u have to feel content with Star Movies.
    Does TBO stands for Tuticorin Box Office? (cable operator channel????) We don’t have such channel here….Surely KTV has a strong competitor in the form of TBO it seems. “Social Networking sites are irritating”-Bill Gates. He’d have felt happy.

    @Bala:
    I dunno if its a local channel..Doesn’t even have a single ad streaming..

  8. Nice post. It is always good to see people expressing themselves in different ways.

    Since you seem to be associated with Management, I would like to suggest you a new magazine – PEOPLE MATTERS started by an ISB Alumni, which was suggested to me by a friend and which I have found very useful.

    It deals with various important aspects of management, especially those related to Leadership & People Management, which the mainstream business publications often ignore.

    It’s also relatively cheap. I guess its annual subscription is about Rs. 400 (US$ 8 approx) which is even less than the cost of a standard Pizza.

    Their last issue had an enlightening article by Robert Kaplan (the co-founder of Balanced Scorecard method, if you remember) where he talks about how organisations can create opportunities out of current economic downturn.

    I got its subscription online through their website: http://www.peoplematters.in

    If you like the magazine, kindly refer it to your friends or colleagues in the organization you work. They may be interested in subscribing to it.

    Thanks
