SoCS: A Bit of this and that

We all, at least most of us around here love Cricket. And when I was very young, I had the pleasure of being involved in the galli cricket (i.e. street cricket) with my brother. Since I can never run, even if it is to save my life, I would never get a chance to bowl (standing in a place and throwing the ball is not bowling …so) but I was (or rather am) slightly well built and have good strength in my arms. So give me a bat and I am good at getting some runs for you, even without running. I used to love it. But then I got banned by my parents 😦 (reason: I am a girl).

I am not a person who will bet on anything, actually it should be modified as ‘a person who should not bet on anything’. I am a very emotional person and cannot judge unbiased, even though not always. For e.g. in the Indian Premier League (IPL) 20-20 Cricket Matches, my favorite team was  is Chennai Super Kings (CSK). Irrespective of how the team is performing, if I have to bet, I will always bet on CSK, for every single match. No way I will bet on any other team to win a match. How will that be betting at all. But then, that is how I am. So I don’t even go there.

Even though the term bit makes me want to write about the computer jargon, I am trying to not do that, but I am not getting anything else right now to write about bit 😦 I will skip them and go to the last one remaining then.

Bot, a term I first learnt in my master’s. Oops, Sorry! this is again a computer term. Can’t help it. That is what came to my mind when I read that word. I used to wonder how a bot (it means a small software that can run on a machine and do some repetitive actions without any intervention) gets designed and how they are used in some of the computer applications and all. Now they are running everywhere, be it our normal search engine, our shopping cart, every single place. A simple example which you might be very familiar with is the spam bot. If you see some mails automatically marked as spam it is because of a bot which is programmed (and in turn learns by itself to add more filtering options by the one that you mark as spam too). OK, I am gonna stop right here with my lecture hoping that I did not bore anyone who read this to the end. Have a nice weekend and Happy Blogging. 

Post for this week’s Stream of Consciousness Saturday prompt.

Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is: “bat, bet, bit, bot, but.” Focus on one, use them all, or simply include one of these words in your post. It’s up to you!

  1. What a shame you couldn’t play cricket. Everyone should be able to do the things they love. :/ Your post wasn’t boring at all! I seriously wondered how bots worked. They are such a big part of our lives these days – more than I knew. Thanks for the explanation, KG!
