Well, congratulations!

Btw, any chance you'd want to co-write a paper with me? On, eg, the fairness of IR?

Abhishek said...

Congratulations are in order. And may your number decrease!

(Kunal : I'm in queue too.)

Ramanand said...

thanks guys. A co-co-collaboration? why not.

nice nice ... now all you need is a film role to get you the final feathers in your cap -- a Kevin Bacon number and, hence, an Erdős–Bacon number. Then you'll find your destiny -- you'll become famous as a trivia question :))

Hey! I read through a bit of the paper. Great work! Seems like you might have had to do quite a lot of research on the languages. Not being in touch with hindi after school is definitely an impediment. BTW what s/w did you use to draw the graphs? Was it merely excel?

Saket said...

Great stuff! :) Congrats!

Ramanand said...

all: Thanks!
GT: am already trivia qn. Refer qn on Mastermind India winners; once, embarassingly, in the same quiz I was participating in. c'est la vie.

TDQ: was done with gnuplot and OpenOffice. Could have used Excel had I been on Windows. I use gnuplot for simpler graphs, like the line-plots.

Was the qn something like "the first one was a history teacher from somewhere, the second one was .... The last one, the youngest was an IT professional from Pune" ? And more importantly did it come to you? Also please to specify venue and quiz name.

Ramanand said...
