இனிய தமிழ் புத்தாண்டு வாழ்த்துக்கள்

This is my Tamil New Year post…. if I check my wish list, a lot more things are pending. I want to reduce it one by one. So I am going to start Tamil blog for this tamil new year.

Mali and I were started one blog in the year 2004 after we saw the movie AUTOGRAPH (we posted one famous dialogue from that movie). After that we forgot about that blog.

So when I was thinking what name I have to give for this new Tamil blog, I just remembered this. And then found the password and going to start from today onwards. Autograph

checkout this, Mali wrote interesting stuff about Tamil New Year...

If anyone asks me, “where will you be 3 years down the line?” Sometimes I don’t know what to say. Because everyone is saying the bore answers like I want to be a SYSTEM ANALYST, PROJECT MANAGER or PROJECT LEADER…etc (some kind of next level designation in their field)

I generally have the habit of saying something like “technical architect”, some tech jargon that should be different from normal answers (even that is common nowadays :-)). But if I think, do I really want to become like that? I don’t know.

When I was reading the below link, I thought I should change the answer for the question in the first line (3 years down the line)? So, my answer for that question is “ethical hacker”. It looks odd initially but if you explain well then no issues, I think. (If I read any other article, I may change it to some other designation:-), But time being I will choose this)

Definition for ethical hacker:
An ethical hacker is a computer and network expert who attacks a security system on behalf of its owners, seeking vulnerabilities that a malicious hacker could exploit.

I heard this word long time back and I knew a lot of financial domain groups are spending very big chunk money in this field.

In the same way if anyone asks about my hobby that ‘s also one difficult question to answer (I mean tech. Hobbies, not cricket and other stuffs). My default answer for that question is ‘READING TECH BLOGS’. I think this is correct time to change that habit too.

So here after, my tech hobbies should be,
* Play around with · REGEX (Regular Expression)
* Writing SQL queries (single query length should be more than 3 pages in the word document)

I have a basic knowledge on these areas. But I want to become an expert on this. For that, what are all the steps I should follow? I have to think (!). So, if you have any idea on this or if you find any web links, please send it to my gmail id ( or put that link as a comment here. Happy surfing.
