it’s study hols time…(or is it?);)

May 5, 2010

hello hello hello there dear bloggers and my dear quiz enthusiasts!

here we are from sastra for another set of wonderful study hols and free time(ahem ….cough …cough….pls don’t tell my parents!!) for about 10 days.i know it’s very less(personally,do you feel it’s a long time huh?)and being bored to the core,i’m back with a few questions i hope are good enough.

here goes:

1)The origins of the site now known as “X” date back to July 1997, when Rob “CmdrTaco” Malda started a personal website called Chips & Dips, which featured a single rant each day about something that interested him – typically something to do with Linux or open source software. At the time, Malda was a student at Hope College in Holland, Michigan, majoring in computer science. The site became “X” in September 1997 under the moniker, “News for Nerds. Stuff that Matters” (although the first archived “X” post dates back to December 31, 1997, due to a server crash that wiped out the earlier posts), and quickly became a hotspot on the Web for news and information of interest to computer geeks.The name “X” came from somewhat of an “obnoxious parody of a URL” – when Malda registered the domain, he desired to make a name that was “silly and unpronounceable” – try pronouncing out, “h-t-t-p-colon-slash-slash-X-dot-org”.One popular section that debuted in the early days (May 13, 1998) was “Ask X”, which allowed individual users to ask various questions to the “X”community on a variety of topics.

now,”X” kyaa hai?

2)now just read the following:

Be a X, no matter what.

Don’t be a generalized X. You must specialize in something.

Wait in line on every opening night. If you can go in costume or at least with a related T-shirt, all the better.

Don’t waste your time on anything not related to X-dom.

Befriend any person or persons bearing any physical similarities to comic book or sci-fi figures.

Try to take over the world!

what in the name of hell is the above set of 6 things?

3)i love tarts!but who’s this guy showing off some tarts in the photo?

P.S:aqua informs me that TART has more than one meaning,i’d like to inform you guys that TART is what i’ve referred to as in the sweet perishable (bakery item-i think)eatable!

goodbye for now!cheers!!
