why i am choosing  now to write ,why i haven’t  i did this before ,the simple  answer is ,i am sick and tired of bottling up sttuf,now i want to lent it  out  and say what ever i want to say , with out even thinking for a single moment  what  kind of reactions it will bring .And above all  who would   even bother to read the rantings of a jobless computer engineer.
