Here’s an e-mail that I got from a Google recruiter:
I ran across your website today and was intrigued by your passion for computing and open source. You seem to have been quite involved with FOSS projects in the past and still, currently. I wanted to touch base with you to find out more about your current activities and interests, and to hopefully discuss potential engineering opportunities at Google. What do you think?
I don’t know if they would actually hire me or not, but it’s an honour to get noticed.

Thanks to everyone who has called, emailed, and wished me on Facebook, Flickr, and Hi5! I didn’t knew I had so many well wishers!
It just couldn’t get any better than this… I’m so happy!
Sharif bhai opened a thread on our Flickr group where a lot of people had wished me… Shahriar bhai greeted me the Flickr way!

After checking out at three other banks I decided to open my new account at Brac Bank. Their fees are reasonable enough, has enough ATMs around the country, and more importantly their customer services is good. I’d rate them 3.5/5.
The Visa card that comes with the account is accepted on all QCash machines and of coarse on all shops where I buy stuffs from, so good for me.

Festivals like Eid make me realise how lonely I’m. With no family and friends, I’ve nothing to do on this day. No place to go, and no one to hang out with.
I woke up at 6 in the morning and I’m sitting idle at home. I think I’ll get some sleep now, then in the evening I’ll watch some TV. Simply an awful day.
Listening to: Ayu – Connected (Push Instrumental Dub).

Location: Shilpakala Academy Experimental Theater Hall
I just came back home watching Aronnok Natyadal’s play “Raarang”, which (almost) bored me to death. I wouldn’t have been there if one of the actresses on the play wasn’t my friend. Bengali literature never really touched me, nor did this play.
It was the first time I watched a theater play, and probably the last. Gee, it’s so khet!

It’s my ex-colleague Mohammad Nasirullah and Lela Lantz’s last month at Relief International. They are both going to America, so the office organized a farewell party for them at Topkapi restaurant in Gulshan. I was invited by Jennifer and didn’t want to miss the opportunity to meet them for the last time. I’ve worked with them for such a long time and have so many pleasant and not-so-pleasant memories!
Nasir bhai is going to America with his wife and daughter as a DV lottery winner. Lela is going back home after spending more than five years in Bangladesh. I wish both of them best of luck!
