Pretty simple. Some of my friends live in bay area. One of them owns a beemer and another 2 are contemplating on buying an audi. And i am stuck with a sail here.

But if you do a net worth calculation you might find that these guys are way in debt compared to you until they are mch older. Also they lease so do not stump up moolah for the car, donwside is that they never own it

I dont know if artofzen saw this.. Anyways i'l answer it for you.. Like he said decoding blackboxes...
Our company has come up with a software for blackbox decoding.. Our clients are the main domestic airlines in India(Dont really know which ones for sure though)....
We do the blackbox decoding.. The office was initially in B'lore.. Now shifted base to Trivandrum... Artofzen is working in that division.. Thats why he said decoding blackboxes....

Thanks Vinsanity,

I was wondering if that was indeed the meaning or it was some sort of pun!
So do you guys have to decode after every flight? or only in the case of an error? or random checks? or only in the case of a crash?

thnx,
R

ps - also, any idea/news about the black boxes involved in 9-11?

Okie, now thats a little too much of stuff for me to answer.. I'm working in the same s/w firm but not in the same division.. So i'm not aware.. Guess artofzen would be the right person to answer this.....
