I am addicted

I think I was in 8th standard when I learnt “Ati sarvatra varjayeta” – meaning, “Excess of anything should be avoided”. This has been true in my life so many times that I thought I had internalized this mantra and maybe that is why I ignored it.

I am again addicted – to computers and internet. And no I am not talking about the addiction where you need to check mails very very regularly – I passed that stage eons back… I am talking about the addiction where… ummm… ummm… Let me give some examples:

  • My fingers are more intelligent then me. When I need to type a long multi-syllable word even before I start thinking about the spelling, my fingers type the word out. This thing freaks me out quite regularly.
  • I am reading a newspaper/novel and I wish I could do ctrl+f (that is ‘find’). I wish I could have links in the novel/newspaper that would point me to prior articles or related things.
  • I am watching a match/movie on television and I need to find the IMDb rating of the movie or the statistics of the player in action on Cricinfo. I wish that information could be accessed at the click of a button on the remote.

Now my daily chant is again going to be – “Ati sarvatra varjayeta, Ati sarvatra varjayeta!

What is your addiction?

    abc, even I wish I could forward the movie I am seeing… mplayer effect..

    sreejith, you know I was better at CS/quake when I was half asleep, because then I did not have time to think, I just took action without thinking πŸ™‚
