I love to tell jokes and today, I finally came up with my own joke. here it goes:

I decide to make my first son a medical doctor so later on when I am old and sick, I can get medical care any time I need and for free..., in fact, better to make my second son a medical doctor too so I can get a second opinion.

here is another version of this joke:

I decide to make my first son a medical doctor so later on when I am old and sick, I can get medical care any time I need and for free..., in fact, better to make my second son a medical doctor too so I can get a second opinion. well, perhaps my third son should be a lawyer - in case something is wrong with my medical care, I can sue the first two for free.

if you happen to visit this page and read these two jokes, tell me which one you like...

My wife (Jenny) is my editor in chief for all of my writings.
I believe that Design Patterns are the way to go when it comes to developing the applications and I preach this on my blog, so I hope to share some of this material with readers of CodeProject.com.

Happy reading!

Saravana Kumar lives in the commercial hub of Dubai.

He started programming when he was 14 with FORTRAN in the DOS based PCs. He developed himself with the evolution of Windows 3.1, 95, 98, 2000, XP, Vista... along with the programming languages and tools like C, BASIC, C++, JAVA, DBASE 3+ etc.

He completed his Engineering Graduation in Computer Science in the year 2000 and started his career into software by programming into the microprocessor. C, DSP were his stepping stone as a Software Programmer, in Madras, India.

He changed career by taking a big leap in switching himself (also relocating to Dubai, UAE) to Web Sites and stuffs. He was playing with HTML, ASP, and Java Script for a while.

He got himself a break in his career for a few months and got a dip into the .NET. He then became a .NET programmer (basically into ASP.NET) in Dubai Technologies, Dubai, UAE. Then circumstances forced him to take a break and came back to Dubai. He is working as a Software engineer. He enjoys his work, right now, fully occupied, but still finds time to spare at the Code Project.

He enjoys playing games like solitaire, commandos. He likes music a lot. He loves to be alone most of the time (as a Piscean - a day dreamer). He is happy that he is the first person in his family to 'work' than involve in the business. He is sad that he is not able to keep in touch with his friends and loved ones. But in a way happy that he still remembers them.

Saravana Kumar got a new PDA (iMate PDA2k) March 2005, and spends quality time with it. Still not tired of downloading the software and not tired of the upgrades for the device.

Update: Saravana Kumar is a 'Contributing Editor' for PocketPCDubai website, writing reviews and posting news/messages relating to PocketPC.

His mobile usage increased a lot and the list is,

Nokia 3330
iMate PDA2k
HP iPAQ HW 6515

Vikram is a 20-something bloke working in Madras (aka Chennai), India. Vikram was born in Madras, brought up in Coimbatore, and is now back in Madras. He loves listening to music, reading and watching cricket. He hates cats.

Vikram joined CP way back in 2002 when he was in college and had papers on Windows programming. In his past lives, he languished around, roaming the wilderness of Solaris, eventually moving on to writing software for managing ATMs in .NET. He now works as a Business Analyst who dabbles in SQL for an investment bank, working with applications for structured products.

He "loves everyone" for whatever that is worth. And he rather makes a big deal out of the fact that he's ambidextrous....
