  • Back to Blogging - Unreal Blog
    Our discussion wasn t going well and he wanted see my blog all revamped and modernized He took one look about five seconds and shot it down without even a second look and told me that it was second grade I begged to differ and I certainly hope you would too You see this guy was trying to shoot down my work to get an upper hand in the collaboration negotiations It didn t work and the collaboration never really happened This is how the whole thing panned out An illustrious marketing guy from the said startup contacts me one morning and tells me that I stand to make a ridiculously large amount of money by way of affiliate commissions if I promote their advertising product I have heard such promises before but I say to myself sure why not But before doing anything I decide to try out their product and find that the returns from their product are well ridiculously small The commission which is a fraction of the returns would be even smaller So I offer them a different deal a monthly paid banner placement model They get all upset and try to badger me and badmouthing my blog was part of that badgering effort but finally come up with an offer which was about 3 of their original promise Now I m not greedy so I counter with 6 I haven t heard from them yet and I don t think I will If you make a living on the Internet you have to be very careful about who you partner with I don t actually make a living I m retired so I can afford to turn down such bogus affiliate offers and probe them with potentially smaller returns I know that there are bloggers

  • Instant Water Heater - Unreal Blog
    would do the installation myself and that gave me the edge in the argument of division of labor as well But my wife much better schooled in the corporate games promptly skipped the country thereby nullifying my proximity and convenience advantages I should have called the electrician then I can see clearly now in hindsight An engineer is nothing if not resourceful If we can save a trip to the local mall or the appliance shop using eBay and the Internet why wouldn t we I know this statement also nullifies proximity and convenience arguments but know this no action is always better than even convenient action and the proximity argument still applies as long as it can save an action item I ordered the heater online and they delivered it in about five minutes These guys need to take a chill pill Seriously Anyway I ignored the box for as long as possible Finally I located the elusive screwdriver and dismantled the broken heater It turned out to be remarkably easy to install the new one The only issue was in lining up the front panel knobs with the internals of the heater It took me a while but I finally managed it The installation wasn t as sturdy as the electrician s but its theory was clearly superior Then came the cutover process and user acceptance tests The switch clicked on with the bright red pilot light indicating that all was well with the world The faucet opened and water ran nicely and in copious quantities But it ran cold An engineer is seldom flummoxed by a hundred dollar plus shipping and handling water heater Not for long anyways No he focusses his sheer and pure intellect on the next possible solution and like hot knife through butter nay like high power laser though butter it invariably takes him to the bottom of the problem at hand Sure enough my laser guided problem solving methodology led me to the culprit the switch It was the only other moving element in the system the only other point of failure the villain It got power because its light came on It didn t send power because the water heater didn t work What could be more obvious The only question was really where to get the replacement switch from Local mall or eBay As I was formulating a general plan of action to procure the afore mentioned switch it occurred to me what if this point of failure didn t fail either We engineers we learn from our experience you see We are logical We are trained in abstract lateral thinking If the most likely point of failure didn t fail the second most likely point is even less likely to fail ergo the third most likely point is in fact the most likely one Doesn t make sense to you Don t feel bad it takes years of rigorous training to follow such intricate logic To be fair this

  • electrician Archives - Unreal Blog
    Life Humor Work and Life Instant Water Heater April 24 2014 manoj My primary degree is in engineering of the electric electronics variety which is why I can fix LED lights for instance I suspect an engineering degree gives you more of a theoretical understanding rather than practical knowledge I mean I m no electrician At times I take on projects where I may have been better advised to call an electrician Recently our maid s instant water heater died and some action on my part was indicated Though an engineer I have been in the corporate scene long enough to know that the right response to any action item during a meeting is May be by next Tuesday So I asked the maid to use my mother in law s bathroom thinking that I could postpone this issue to one of the future Tuesdays But the maid probably bound by some sacred ethical covenants of her profession refused to do that At that point I should have called the electrician But I foolishly decided to take a look at the prima facie evidence The switch looked fine with its indicator light coming on as expected but the water heater
