Life Of Navin

Random Musings, Random Bullshit.


LoN Entering A "Temporary" Self-Exile!!

So over the past few months, starting from my first post on LoN, this blog has become an integral part of my life, my way of telling the world that I'm not a "Nobody", or just a "Somebody" but the moronically unique, technically challenged, humorously untalented NAVIN PAI. To a large extent, I have been successful in doing so. I've recieved emails and comments from people from around the world, made friends within the international blogging circle, developed professional contacts ranging from web gurus to security researchers to even a hair stylist (seriously!!) and even been the recepient of a few brickbats (Life's not always a bed of roses!!). Also, LoN has gotten a pagerank from Google (in less than a year of its existence), and the first result in a Google search for "Navin Pai" shows up my Blogger profile. (I simply love going to, typing in "Navin Pai", and clicking on "I'm feeling lucky"!!). The other results on the first page include my blog and my twitter page!! So I guess when you wonder who Navin Pai is, even Google says "It's this internet freak from Goa"!! "MISSION SUCCESSFUL" to say the least!!

But over the past few days, I've been struggling to find the time to update this blog, mainly due to my pre-occupation with other **activities** (I'd already said in this older post (at the end) that Sem 2 would be barely eventful).

My dear friend (snicker snicker) Albert gave me the following advice:

As such, after going through my list of options, I've decided to put myself and LoN on a temporary timeout until May 2009...... I stress on the word temporary, because I'm sure that I'll be back up and running once May is here. Now that's less than 2 months so I'm guessing that I won't miss too much. But I promise, that I'll be back (not with a bang, but with a BOOOOOOOOM!!), and so will LoN, and this sign sums it all up:

Hope that you guys (and gals of course) will understand......

So for the last time until May,
