Utilizing Internet Part 3

Till the time, I find a girl who is a REAL FAN of Facebook, I believe, I must proceed with the rest of Internet Utilization Post.

Third on my list is Pagii - A Social Publication Website, which I recently came across (through a very similar invite in my mailbox saying that some long lost friend of mine, couldn't find me on it, and was dying to see me there, and if I didn't join it within the next 48 seconds, even immediate blood donation, won't be able to save my friend.)

So, Pagii. Lets talk to a few people, what they think about Pagii ---

Elitecoder: Hi, Are you on Pagii?

anisha_kool: Pagii?

Elitecoder: Yeah, that Social Publishing Site?

anisha_kool: nahi (No)

Elitecoder: Never heard of it?

anisha_kool: No

Elitecoder: Ohk...would you like to join it?

anisha_kool: nahi (No)
anisha_kool: :))
anisha_kool: Have had enough of orkut and facebook.


Elitecoder: Hi, Are you on Pagii?

Ronak Khakhkhar: Whats that?

Elitecoder: That Social Publishing Site?

Ronak Khakhkhar: No
Ronak Khakhkhar: aur (And)
Ronak Khakhkhar: tu aise type kyyu kar raha hai? (Why are you typing like this?)

Elitecoder: My friend, you are being interviewed LIVE.
Elitecoder: So would you like to join Pagii?

Ronak Khakhkhar: mkl? (Are you Mukul?)

Elitecoder: Yes

Ronak Khakhkhar: I don't want to be interviewed?

Elitecoder: Just answer this last question
Elitecoder: Would you like to join Pagii?

Ronak Khakhkhar: No

Elitecoder: May I know why?

Ronak Khakhkhar has signed off.


Elitecoder: Hi, Are you on Pagii?

Bhavna Agarwal: Pagii?
Bhavna Agarwal: ab ye kya hai (Now what is this?)

Elitecoder: That Social Publishing Site?

Bhavna Agarwal: naah (No)
Bhavna Agarwal: I am not.

Elitecoder: Would you like to join it?

Bhavna Agarwal: arre bahut sites hai yar already (There are so many sites already)
Bhavna Agarwal: Anything special in it?


Elitecoder: Hi, Are you on Pagii?

sugandha_vir_0389: Uh NOOOOOOOOOOOOO


And here I resolute, not to ask any more people about Pagii. Discussion Finished.

Utilizing Internet Part - 2

Alright, it seems, I got time to continue with my post too soon. So lets start with the job I left some time back. Internet Utilization.

The second website, on my list is Facebook (Another Social Networking phenomena) (Ooh, another Likeness match and Zombie bite - I got no blood left, for God's Sake!!!)

If you want to have a look at, what I had earlier than that, have a peek -

Shrey Jain matched with you on a Likeness Quiz within the last 13 hours. Click here to see your match score!


You have 3 new movie reviews from Arpit J. Click here to view and reply >


Facebook is another Social Networking site, which lets you install a number of various "interesting" applications, which assure you very less pains and huge amount of fun.

I am not a great talker, so I will again take the readers towards an interview, which I took with a user of Facebook (incidentally, she is that same girl, I interviewed last, hell, there was nobody else online!!!). I hope users gain some insight from the interview.

Elitecoder: Welcome back miss, I welcome you once again to my small show. Hope you enjoyed it last time.

sugandha_vir_0389: before dat...shudnt u edit dat part out..."user of facebook"
sugandha_vir_0389: cos im not..anymore..

Elitecoder: Before that, you #@%!@%#@, write correct English, as it took me hell of a time to edit your text!!!!
Elitecoder: last time.

sugandha_vir_0389: oh im so not gonna do dat

Elitecoder: #@%!@%##

sugandha_vir_0389: 2385734
sugandha_vir_0389: oh sorry
sugandha_vir_0389: @%$^$#^$%&%*&*#6

Elitecoder: It seems, I have no option left, but to bear with it (All my thoughts, should usually come in brackets)
Elitecoder: So ma'm, what do you feel about Facebook?

sugandha_vir_0389: "shud usually"???:P
sugandha_vir_0389: Anyways....
sugandha_vir_0389: Well...I personally don't like Facebook...
sugandha_vir_0389: I was a user some time back..but I didn't enjoy it much...so i closed my account...

Elitecoder: Well, I appreciate you personal views, but would you also throw some light on the general view about Facebook?

sugandha_vir_0389: General view....?? I wudnt know...I have better things to do than discuss Facebook with my friends...!!!

Elitecoder: Right. (Oh God, where am I stuck?)
Elitecoder: It displays the deepest affections for Facebook in your heart. I am thrilled.

sugandha_vir_0389: n general view...falls more under your work category...doesn't it?
sugandha_vir_0389: Deepest affections...so true....:P

Elitecoder: Ok, its a dangerous road ahead, discussing about me. (Why the hell, she always turns back on me??? What have i done??? :((( )
Elitecoder: So, let me ask you another question.

sugandha_vir_0389: ok..

Elitecoder: Did you get time to make friends on Facebook, for however long a time you were on it?

sugandha_vir_0389: As in...make friends with people I didn't know already...?

Elitecoder: Well, any sort of friends, for that matter.

sugandha_vir_0389: Well...ya..I made quite a few friends there.....but most of them were the ones I already knew....no new random friends...

Elitecoder: Thats a good thing.
Elitecoder: So what made you leave Facebook?
Elitecoder: It will be helpful, if you give some example in detail

sugandha_vir_0389: Uh...one pain in th %#^%$^$% aren't you...!!
sugandha_vir_0389: Ok I'll think
sugandha_vir_0389: For one....I used to get a LOT of updates..on who did what with whom...
sugandha_vir_0389: I mean..I am least bothered man...!! Who cares...if you got a 90% score on some movie quiz or whatever...

Elitecoder: I see, keep it coming ma'm, we have a large fan following here, who are awaiting your say on this matter.

sugandha_vir_0389: Secondly....I used to get a lot of new application requests...n just to open one of them...I have to send them to atleast 20 people on my list first...!!!
sugandha_vir_0389: n I was like....ughhhhhhhh.....gimme a break...
sugandha_vir_0389: !!!!!!!!!!!!

Elitecoder: (What if you do not have 20 people in your list on the first place?) (This was my thought, which she read....ughhhhhh!!!)

sugandha_vir_0389: I don't know...then maybe you have to send it to everyone on your list....
sugandha_vir_0389: I never came across that situation....

(I so believe that you had 20 people on your list, have you ever even met 20 people in whole of your life??? %$^@^%!^$^@)

Elitecoder: I see, would be a real pain, isn't it?

sugandha_vir_0389: You bet..!

Elitecoder: No, really, I am afraid of losing bets!!!
Elitecoder: So, we shall move onto our next question.

sugandha_vir_0389: Duhh....I meant..you can bet on it....n be sure (to win, dat is) ;)

(And she thought, I hadn't understood her comment on the first place, do I really look or sound so dumb?)

Elitecoder: Oh, ok ok. So next question.

sugandha_vir_0389: Your gonna edit this part out, aren't u?? :D

Elitecoder: We will see to that. (See, See....!!!!)

sugandha_vir_0389: Ok

Elitecoder: Next question now. Would you suggest your friends to try Facebook out? (I am on it, and wanting some girl-friends desperately!!)

sugandha_vir_0389: Firstly, I appreciate your courage on admitting on your blog that you are desperate....
sugandha_vir_0389: for a girl....(thanks for clarifying dat too)

(Like I would tell her publicly, if I was a gay!!!)

sugandha_vir_0389: n as far as my friends are concerned....I would tell them what I think about it..n why...the decision is theirs to make
sugandha_vir_0389: maybe a few people who have a lot of enthusiasm for social networking..
sugandha_vir_0389: n are not as lazy as me...
sugandha_vir_0389: AND are quite amused by all the applications on facebook....
sugandha_vir_0389: .......might find it interesting...

Elitecoder: Thanks for such nice thoughts.
Elitecoder: Now, I would like to end this interview with one last question.
(I wanna run away, don't wanna get my own a** kicked in my own interview anymore!!!!)

sugandha_vir_0389: Shoot

Elitecoder: Mmmm, this is my Facebook Profile Link - http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=611135029 - Would you please pass this onto your other girl-friends?

sugandha_vir_0389: Well ok..I'll do that....they might find a few of your frens interesting enuf...;) (Hell, I was talking about myself!!! :((( )
sugandha_vir_0389: So...
sugandha_vir_0389: By the Way...Best of luck to you for finding a gf...:) (%@%^$^@^@^$#^#^@%@#^#$^!@^$^#$^@^$^#$ - Censored Thoughts)

Elitecoder: I just so wish :D
Elitecoder: Thanks again for your precious time.

sugandha_vir_0389: Your're Welcome.

Elitecoder: Don't miss out on the new posts on my Blog. One would be your own interview.
Elitecoder: Celebrate the celebrityhood!!!!
(Watch out for it dear lady!!!!)

Alright, I am done with one interview of a Facebook user (ex-Facebook user), who as it turns out, didn't like Facebook that much. I am still looking for that REAL FAN of Facebook, so as soon as I meet him/her (I hope for it to be "her" more), I will interview her (I just assumed that I will be lucky enough to have it to be a her!!) and will bring those unrivalled thoughts out for you all!!

So keep watching this space for more, more and more!!!

Utilizing Internet

Ok, I am posting after ages. I know that, "I am aware of that". But posting after ages, doesn't mean, I have not been on Internet or something...it just means, I haven't been utilizing the net (properly?).

Now everyone has their different definitions for utilizing the internet. I have been struggling to frame mine too. So, let me tell you about my random day today, and you may get a hint about what I am trying to talk about here!!

I woke up, and felt like doing nothing, or atleast, not my regular day chores. (It only means, not taking bath on time!!). So, I decided to look at Internet, and check what I have been missing since a long time. I started with my blog which has been in shambles since ages, and I realized, I havent been posting since millenias + - a few decades. Next came my website, which was in a relatively better shape, as I had updated it some time back coz of its need. And then came something, spectacular....

I don't have words for it, but I will just say, that, I came onto an unexplored field of social interaction websites, and to keep track of all this, I started bookmarking them.

And at the end of that exploration, if I tell you that list of bookmarks....... have a look yourself....

  1. Orkut - Supposedly Social Networking (All the profiles are locked by their owners!!!)

------- This site is especially popular with Indians, so just liked to discuss it more [:D]. So I will just enlist the points to be noticed whenever you visit this website -

  • All the photologs or photoalbums (as orkut people call them) are locked (means visitors cannot access them) - what do you mean by social networking, when no visitor can see you face??
  • Most of the "about me" sections will use bold tones and will displays owner's attitude in short and simple words. Aren't we supposed to be friendly in order to be able to network socially? Probably not in this part of the world!!!
  • Most of the profiles can be tagged as best displays of Creative (Plagiarism?) Display of Poetry.
  • Most of the Profiles with female owners will have profile pics of some extremely popular Actor (most of the people do not know that `Actress` is not a word anymore!!), probably telling that they are the spokesperson/manager for that star. (Probably!!)
  • The same applies to a lot of Male Profile Owners too. I am so proud to know so many Shahrukh Khans and Hrithik Roshans. The only thing that amazes me is, why the hell could I never manage to ask them for their autographs!!
  • Any (every girl) will have insane amounts of scraps saying, "I wanna friendship with you" (Mark the grammer here!!!) (All the puns intended!!). I can just imagine, how many friendship requests would they have!! And probably we should now start having a Guinness Book of World Records Entry for having maximum number of Friend Requests....what say organizers?
  • Every Guy will only look at his recent visitor's list for any recent "female" visitor, as soon as he logs in. He would care least if any guy has visited him (unless....you can let your minds run wild here).
  • Every guy, as soon as he visits a girl's profile, who has her pics uploaded, would look at her relationship status (first) and then will look at her personal information page (second), if in case, she doesn't have an appropriately filled personal page, they will next go to her album (third) to fill up her personal info page in their mind themselves.
As the readers know, I started this blog post with a motive of doing something entirely different, but as I have spent a lot of precious hours of mine on orkut, I have gotten emotional here, and will dedicate this blog post to the Orkut. Though I surely will continue with the list which I started above about the other websites in my next blog posts.

And lets get back to our Orkut Features -

  • And to add upon the love of Orkut (by me and others), I bring forth for you, an exclusive interview of an orkut user (exclusive, because, its her first interview). And yes, only for my special audience, I have managed to get the interview of a female user of orkut (certified female!!). So lets see, what this user has to say -
In Bracket would be my personal comments, added after the Interview (oh hell~~!!)

Elitecoder: Do u hate Orkut? (Do you?)

sugandha_vir_0389: no..

Elitecoder: Would u want to hate it?

sugandha_vir_0389: If I wanted to hate it, I would be hating it by now... [:P]

Elitecoder: Do you really love orkut for the guys who are up there?
Elitecoder: (including me) - [Ok, this bracket text was a part of interview.]

sugandha_vir_0389: for th guys..as in?
sugandha_vir_0389: cud u explain a bit more?

Elitecoder: Just generalize the guys here, as in take the 100% guys ratio here, don't just look at the guys u like :D

sugandha_vir_0389: ok..
sugandha_vir_0389: well to be honest...a LOT of the guys out dere are big time losers..
sugandha_vir_0389: as in i would never even want to talk to them
sugandha_vir_0389: let alone "phrandship with them" (Mark the grammer here, all puns intended!!)

Elitecoder: Ok
Elitecoder: I would take your comments with sincere respect.
Elitecoder: Do you think girls up on orkut are really worth the attention they get?
Elitecoder: I should press upon the point here that I am trying not to be partial with any sex
Elitecoder: or any sexual alignments.

sugandha_vir_0389: Ok, i get it...
sugandha_vir_0389: Well...They get attention of people who think they are worth it...
sugandha_vir_0389: and whether sumone is worth any attention or not is totally upto the one who gives attention to the other person

Elitecoder: That would be an absolutely politically correct answer...claps!!

sugandha_vir_0389: Thank you.. :)

Elitecoder: Do you think, girls should put up their real pics on a social networking site (Orkut for example) - [Again this bracket was a part of interview]

sugandha_vir_0389: Again a personal choice..
sugandha_vir_0389: but i don't think there is anything wrong with it
sugandha_vir_0389: as i have put up mine on Orkut.. :)

Elitecoder: Would you mind if your Id is published somewhere. I should add that, that somewhere, (my blog) is never visited by anyone.

sugandha_vir_0389: my id...
sugandha_vir_0389: umm...what is the worst that can happen if it is...

Elitecoder: Actually, i should just say, its your id, as people would never know, which Id it is (IRC, Gadu Gadu or AOL)

sugandha_vir_0389: I'll get a lot of spam...or some weird friend requests..

Elitecoder: Yeah, that could be the worst.

sugandha_vir_0389: so..well that'll be sum nuisance...
sugandha_vir_0389: Nothin more than that

Elitecoder: Yes, i agree
Elitecoder: and appreciate your courage

sugandha_vir_0389: :)

Elitecoder: Give me a moment, lemme update that somewhere (my blog) once
Elitecoder: Gimme a few minutes

sugandha_vir_0389: Ok..

Elitecoder: You can read the blog post again, if you wish to
Elitecoder: and shall we continue with the interview

sugandha_vir_0389: ok wait up...
sugandha_vir_0389: :))
sugandha_vir_0389: You actuallly put up the whole thing there... :))

Elitecoder: Well, just be yourself :D

sugandha_vir_0389: I am myself... :)

Elitecoder: So shall we continue further?

sugandha_vir_0389: Sure...
sugandha_vir_0389: Exclusive interview and all haan??
sugandha_vir_0389: How do you know its my first??????

Elitecoder: Idiot
Elitecoder: Exclusive is mine, i am taking my first interview :D

sugandha_vir_0389: :))
sugandha_vir_0389: Oh ok....:P
sugandha_vir_0389: Ok, continue' s'il vous plait... :)

Elitecoder: Huh? (I never knew this would be coming!!!)

sugandha_vir_0389: Continue please?
sugandha_vir_0389: Thodi French maar rahi thi (Was trying my hand at French - Translation)
sugandha_vir_0389: :P

Elitecoder: :P
Elitecoder: I hope you have read the feature set, which I have published on my Blog by now. Would you like to add something to it, or comment on some of them (or all of them?)?

sugandha_vir_0389: Hmm...I'll need some time for that

Elitecoder: Yes, All my time is yours.... (I can imagine, someone running towards me with dagger in his/her hand)
Elitecoder: This is the last question though

sugandha_vir_0389: Okie
sugandha_vir_0389: 1) All the photologs or photoalbums (as orkut people call them) are locked (means visitors cannot access them) - what do you mean by social networking, when no visitor can see you face??
sugandha_vir_0389: well...my guess is that a lot of people out there on Orkut are not for social networking..
sugandha_vir_0389: as in to make new friends...they just want to stay in touch with existing ones..
sugandha_vir_0389: n get back in touch with the few old ones
sugandha_vir_0389: n some people like there privacy...I don't think there is anything wrong with that...
sugandha_vir_0389: There is a reason such an option is available on Orkut in the first place...
sugandha_vir_0389: I think the same goes for the second point of yours too
sugandha_vir_0389: Ok..having the pic of other actors n all...that is really sad...!! I totally agree with u on that (Nobody can imagine my joy, when she finally agreed with me on Some Damn Thing!!!)

Elitecoder: Please continue, I am listening.

sugandha_vir_0389: n about the number of scraps a girl gets
sugandha_vir_0389: well...if you enjoy all the attention..its ok..
sugandha_vir_0389: but if its a nuisance to you...you can always change your scrapbook settings to "only friends can add scraps"
sugandha_vir_0389: (in case someone didn't know that)
sugandha_vir_0389: and there is always room for introducing yourself while you add someone as friend....you do not need to scrap them for that
sugandha_vir_0389: n last two comments....that again depicts the general mindset of guys...or shall we say...yours?

Elitecoder: Hey, &%$$##@^$#$ this is gonna get up on blog, stop saying about me...
Elitecoder: #@%@#%!@%#

sugandha_vir_0389: This is what you think guys do.....maybe not all of them are that desperate.

sugandha_vir_0389: Why should I??
sugandha_vir_0389: I am talking to you na....I am gonna be myself...
sugandha_vir_0389: blog or no blog

Elitecoder: :(
Elitecoder: Ok, then continue....

sugandha_vir_0389: I guess I am done....I'll keep filling you in as soon as i get more ideas.

Elitecoder: Finally (Nobody can imagine, how happy I was, when she stopped getting against me and stopped, Hmmfff!!!!) , Thanks for your precious time for this interview. I will contact you again in case we need your time again. I appreciate it a lot. Thanks a lot.

And Finally, that interview was over. That girl actually made me sweat up, when she actually started pointing out my thinking out of nowhere....Gawd, I was thinking, how to make her stop!!!

But its over now. Enough on Orkut. I will finish Orkutting (or discussion about orkut here!!).
There is always room for another interview, but a guy this time. Lets see if someone volunteers for it.

See ya guys n gals!!!
