What is next?

I am planning to go for a thesis option for my MS degree will help me to specialize on a topic that I really like. MS without thesis is just a bunch of these stupid classes but just more difficult to get through.
That is why going for jobs to see what I really like is a good thing - for a thesis master degree.
Having a non-thesis will not help my specific career because it is not a specialize into a topic. Well, MS non-thesis would place me higher on payscale and that is it - no gurantee that it will be faster to graduate.

I think I will do better if I do one thing and just one thing. As my friend Rajat in wsu doing MS thesis right now, he said. he said: there is no gurantee that MS non-thesis will graduate faster, because you have research credits in a thesis option.

I mean, after reading 451 (Database) and 466 (Embedded systems) exam and questions. What the hell with a BS degree, the topics are just too diverse, and I don't think I will use the new knowledge as much as the professors will expect - I won't use all of them. Yes, some of the knowledge is going to be a waste - because I want to specialize.

Vegetarian Quotes (1)

Truely man is the king of beasts, for his brutality exceeds theirs. We  live by the death of others: we are burial places! I have from an early  age abjured the use of meat, and the time will come when men such as I  will look on the murder of animals as they now look on the murder of  men. ~Leonardo da Vinci

Nothing will benefit human health and increase chances for survival of  life on Earth as much as the evolution to a vegetarian diet. ~Albert  Einstein

Animals are my friends... and I don't eat my friends. ~George Bernard Shaw 

I have no doubt that it is a part of the destiny of the human race, in its gradual improvement, to leave off eating animals, as surely as the savage tribes have left off eating each other.... ~Henry David Thoreau, Walden, 1854

We manage to swallow flesh only because we do not think of the cruel and sinful thing that we do. Cruelty... is a fundamental sin, and admits of no arguments or nice distinctions. If only we do not allow our heart to grow callous, it protests against cruelty, is always clearly heard; and yet we go on perpetrating cruelties easily, merrily, all of us - in fact, anyone who does not join in is dubbed a crank. ~Rabindranath Tagore

We don't need to eat anyone who would run, swim, or fly away if he could. ~James Cromwell

We all love animals. Why do we call some "pets" and others "dinner?" ~k.d. lang

A veteran USDA meat inspector from Texas describes what he has seen: "Cattle dragged and choked... knocking 'em four, five, ten times. Every now and then when they're stunned they come back to life, and they're up there agonizing. They're supposed to be re-stunned but sometimes they aren't and they'll go through the skinning process alive. I've worked in four large [slaughterhouses] and a bunch of small ones. They're all the same. If people were to see this, they'd probably feel really bad about it. But in a packing house everybody gets so used to it that it doesn't mean anything." ~Slaughterhouse 1997

Would you kill your pet dog or cat to eat it? How about an animal you're not emotionally attached to? Is the thought of slaughtering a cow or chicken or pig with your own hands too much to handle? Instead, would hiring a hit-man to do the job give you enough distance from the emotional discomfort? What animal did you put a contract out on for your supper last night? Did you at least make sure that none went to waste and to take a moment to be grateful for its sacrifice? ~Anonymous.



"The time will come when men such as I will look upon the murder of animals as they now look on the murder of men."- Leonardo da Vinci, artist and scientist




"If slaughterhouses had glass walls, everyone would be vegetarian" Paul McCartney...he's a tosser, but its a good quote.


"For as long as men massacre animals, they will kill each other. Indeed, he who sows the seed of murder and pain cannot reap joy and love."
Pythagoras, mathematician


"If a group of beings from another planet were to land on Earth -- beings who considered themselves as superior to you as you feel yourself to be to other animals -- would you concede them the rights over you that you assume over other animals?"
George Bernard Shaw, playwright, Nobel Prize 1925


"I am in favor of animal rights as well as human rights. That is the way of a whole human being."
Abraham Lincoln, 16th U.S. President

"As long as there are slaughterhouses, there will be battlefields."
Leo Tolstoy


"Non-violence leads to the highest ethics, which is the goal of all evolution. Until we stop harming all other living beings, we are still savages."
Thomas Edison


Animals are my friends... and I don't eat my friends. ~George Bernard Shaw


Nothing more strongly arouses our disgust than cannibalism, yet we make the same impression on Buddhists and vegetarians, for we feed on babies, though not our own. ~Robert Louis Stevenson


We all love animals. Why do we call some "pets" and others "dinner?" ~k.d. lang


"I smell burning flesh, and I hope to God it's human." - Morrissey

Block full page Skype Ads that has started to appear since March 2011

Add this entry to your firewall to block new full page ads on Skype that has started to appear since March 2011.

try a few things here:

block outgoing port 80 requests from skype

block
ip address: 72.246.0.0
subnet mask: 255.255.0.0

And now I don't think anyone can block this range of ip address using hostfile...
