How good a job can be?

Having been the subject of a job switch myself, I know how people can develop an "emotional" connection with their companies that may end up stopping them from leaving them and availing potentially better opportunities.

The article I'm referring to is here:

I never thought I'd say this but I must applaud and gave a big pat on the back of all the security personnel that ensured a violence-free 9th and 10th Muharram-ul-Haram. The arrangements these guys made were great (no, seriously!) - random checks, questioning suspicious people (arresting some too), making fixed entry and exit points and ensuring complete surveillance from land and air. I can only hope they show the same resolve for securing ALL congregations held in the country. If only they keep this up, they can avert most (if not all) suicide bombings and other terror-related activities.

Test Post from Flock!

I have been trying out flock all day today and I must say it'q quite fantastic seeing that it seamlessly integrates your Facebook,, Twitter, Blogger, Flickr accounts directly into the web browser! You can check friend's statuses from the sidebar, write blog posts using its own editor, upload photos using its own tool and what not. They call it a "social web browser" and its exactly that. You must check it out! It's a much much better alternative than, say, Windows Live Writer, and best of all ... it has the powerful Gecko engine running underneath. I had been testing Flock before too when they were in BETA but I must say their full first release (1.0) is impressive to say the least.

Download it here!

A Public Service Message

Received this witty SMS today ...

Please don't buy land cruisers with sunroofs. They have LEVERS that can kill you - at least in Pakistan.
