We're moving.

Since I'm a very generous person and love sharing, here are some pictures of the state of our house last evening. We're still in the process, so everything is in turmoil. It will probably take up to a week to settle down in our new residence.

Pictures can explain much better than words in this situation.

Messy room

Our great computer room in a state of transition. Not that it's much different from normal, but there are more things on the floor now :P

More turmoil

Books and papers accumulated over the years. I'm going to donate my old textbooks to somebody who can use and benefit from them.

Yes, that's just a sampling (maybe 2 - 3% of the total stuff we have to clear out) :P

  2. Things are better now. And yes, I did actually use a Hoover to clean up. Strange that you should mention it. :smile:

  3. Coincidental. I was using it as a verb, rather than a noun....

  4. You used it as a noun, Ray> grab a hooverYes, I know what you're saying though. You meant it in a generic sense, not the brand name. Is that it?

  5. Yep, in much the same way as trampoline or kleenex :) To hoover means to use a vacuum cleaner. In the UK, before Hoover rose to prominence, door to door vacuum salesmen were known as "Goblin Men". True dat.

  6. Ray, yes. I'm aware of the generic usage of brand names that tend to symbolize the actual product. For instance almost all photocopying shops use the term "Xerox" to describe themselves.Some brands tend to become that strong really.

  8. Thanks, Sudipta. Unfortunately, our shifting plans have been delayed due to some technical hitches by a few days. But we've cleared most of the mess out of the old house. :smile:

  9. Why are you moving? To retain your Numero uno position as you're getting more competetion? (Ref: "Also awarded the Best Blogger within a radius of 50,000mm of his own house";) :mrgreen:

  10. Shri, that's true.Seriously though, our moving plans have got postponed by more than 1 month now thanks to the "technical" hitch (which means repairs on the new place by the owners of the first floor - we're in the ground floor. What a nuisance :cry: )
