My family have little idea about what am I doing
but obviously they don't know the brief.. and I do not expect it from them Smile | :)

some of my school friends are not in IT/CE field...
I remember an incidence. I was traveling in bus with my two friends; I was doing discussion on some technical issues with my friend who is also in IT firm
at that time my another friend's expressions were like below...
Me: Today there was a problem with javascript...
My friend: oh ya! what was that?..
another friend:
Confused | :confused: ... javascript! what is that???
Sigh | :sigh: ... Leave it.
Sleepy | :zzz: ... it's better to get sleep instead of this mysterious conversation.
After some time...
OMG | :OMG: ... oh god! they are still talking on same topic Frown | :(
D'Oh! | :doh: ... Thank god I am not a software developer!
