I am a Coffee lover.”Din raat Nescafe frappe peena meri hobby ban gayi hai!” Give me nothing but coffee to drink and I will happily survive!! Coffee is a glorious thing. I love hanging out at CCD- Café Coffee Day. You can learn to customize your drink to your taste. Amazing isn’t it? Let us share some info.

Hot Coffee Beverages

  1. Regular Coffee – There are often a variety of roasts available at coffeeshops, so ask the barista (the person making your coffee) what today’s roasts are. Dark roasts tend to be full-bodied and bold, however they do not necessarily have more caffeine. Light roasts are milder and are sometimes referred to as “breakfast blends.”
  2. Latte – Simply put, espresso with steamed milk and a small amount of foam. When ordering a latte, ask how many shots of espresso are in the size drink you want. You may need to order an extra shot if you enjoy a stronger espresso flavor.
  3. Cappuccino – This drink consists of espresso, part steamed milk, and part foam. A “wet” cappuccino contains more steamed milk for a creamier drink. A “dry” cappuccino contains more foam, which creates a more intense espresso flavor.
  4. Americano – This means espresso cut with hot water. The ratio of espresso to water varies greatly from coffeeshop to coffeeshop, so be sure to ask how much espresso is put into an establishment’s americano.
  5. Mocha – A typical mocha contains chocolate sauce. espresso, and steamed milk topped with a little foam. If a coffeeshop offers a caramel mocha or a white mocha, caramel sauce or white chocolate replaces the chocolate sauce.
  6. Macchiato – Either a single or double shot of espresso topped with a spoonful of milk foam.

Cold Coffee Types

  1. Iced Coffee – Always ask how a coffeeshop makes their iced coffees. Some places simply put hot coffee over ice. Others will brew a pot of coffee and refrigerate it. Still others may use a cold brew method. Some places include milk or cream in their iced coffees, so if you are lactose intolerant, be sure to specify to make your drink with either a soy substitute or water.
  2. Frozen Cappuccinos or Frappes – Either espresso or coffee blended with milk and flavored syrups. If you are watching your sugar intake, beware of coffee granita machines. If a coffeeshop makes their frappes to order, see if they have sugar free options available.
  3. Iced Cappuccino/ Latte/ Mocha – They should be the same as their hot counterparts except that the steamed milk is replaced by cold milk and the drink is poured over ice cubes.

Whether you already have a regular drink, or you like being an adventurous coffee consumer; it’s always a good idea to ask the barista questions when you order at a new coffeeshop. They should be more than willing to help you get the drink you want. Happy coffee ordering! I hope after reading this you will use the info in getting better coffee as a drink.


I was intrigued by Latte art, sometime in future we will discuss the same again.

Tests!! When vultures start circling…

“Shubham Atlani: Optimizing a problem in which objective function is to minimize study hrs & the constraint is to get greater than or equal to average. The best part is that ‘marks obtained’ is a restricted variable.”
Aryan  Singh: “This too shall pass but hopefully I won’t pass out before that.”

This post is all about how the environment or you can say the bits eco system changes  as the examinations approach. This post is all about my observations in the past two weeks. If you are a college student you might understand what exactly I am talking about, and even if you are not you may enjoy reading it because it will remind you of your good old days or the days to come!!

Pre-Tests ……………

Some things that occur and become the indicator of the fact that tests are approaching. The “LIB”. Our library is flooded with people, there are Laptops and books and students all over the place. This time, this semester, the  rush was so much that the administration opened a the 2nd floor for students to study. This is new!!.   The SAC (student activity centre) suddenly goes empty. The students start dropping out of class and study in their rooms.

The various eating joints except our mess are always busy. The demand of coffee rises as if coffee was some mantra that could get you marks for free. “Akhein lal hai, but itna bacha hai ki coffee pee pee kae khol lenge”. The night canteen guy is happy enough not to sleep because this is the fortune Period with highest demand.

There are RADIOS that start on the lan(Local Area Network). It’s for those who love music with studies. So some guy, probably, who has nothing to do starts up a radio and caters to them. And then there is always  the option of playing Counter-Strike on lan. ‘Khud ka GG (bitsian lingo for pathetic state of affairs) huawa hai toh virtually GG(God like Gaming) karke shaanti milti hai’. ). Many new TV series are started during these period as they act as stress busters. Some of the common being – “FRIENDS”, “HOW I MET YOUR BROTHER’, ‘BIG BANG THEORY’,’LOST’ etc.Motivational thoughts and Success quotes start flowing into the rooms. The one that stands out is the time table in the many stick-ons.

Tests Going on…………………!! 😦 😥 😀
During the tests the scene is different. Gtalk status messages tell you a lot about the state of mind of a average Bitsian.

Pranav: “4-vector of T1 –> (GG ,GG ,GG ,icGG) 😦  “
Kabir : “Mane ya na mane”, (mane is the name of one of his professors
Chirag: T1 = Torture 1 T2 = Torture 2 COMPRE ® = Complete Oppression of Mental Peace & Residual Euphoria ™
Aryan Singh: “EDICK is the pain in the ass”……..ROF
Anurag Singh: Not @ Desk || Day 2 — 2/7 KAT GAYA!!! || Biju _/\_ || OBviously the TOC[theory of Computation](talk) of the day is “Hamne CS kyun li!!”
Anurag singh: Day 3 — 6/7….. || A Little Peace in times of Turmoil!!
DHRUV: song for microelectronix: mann bechara bin samjha ke “mane” na….main pagla gya hun…samajhne se bhi samjhe na….
Shreyas: the bits paper setting system;if it is easy it has to be lengthy else it has to has to be too tough.

As soon as the test gets over, the discussion start, “Yaar average kya hogi?”, “Yaar mera to !@#$ ho gaya, teacher !@#$% hai, book kae peeche kae questions directly de diye?”, “Tune toh phod Diya hoga!!”The DC(a  common software on lan) experiences deluge with these discussions.

The famous lines are

  1. “PHOD DIYA  TUNE”.
  2. ”Bahut padh raha hai yaar”
  3. ”Li8 le, Test 2 and compre hai na”
  4. “Kitna Ho Gaya

Now I don’t understand the fact that isn’t it me myself who wrote the test and would know ki how well I have done. Every other person exclaims the above line again and again. There are times when one of the guys is watching a movie and from outside the door comes a taunt, “Bahut Padh raha hai yaar”.Kitna ho gaya is the lamest question I have ever heard of. How does ‘mera kitna hua, affect you’.

At the end , i would like to thank my friends who help me in writing this post and letting me use there Status messages. Do leave comments if you like it or not or you would like to share your expirience with us.

Date of Birth – Form using PHP

Hi, this is a very basic tutorial . I must say its just a snippet of code which you can use to take an input of Date of birth in your form. I have made it using PHP. If you  are newbie this is very useful for you. Its simple to understand. Here is the code:

Firstly, these are the simple functions that can help you generate a date.These are loops and arrays that do all the trick for you.

<?php
//generated years from 1900 to 2010

    function yearOptions( $endYear = '2010', $startYear = '1900' )
    {
        for ( $i = $startYear; $i <= $endYear; $i++ )
        {
            ( $i == date('Y') ) ? $selected = ' selected="selected"'
   : $selected = '';
            echo '<option value="'.$i.'"'.$selected.'>'.$i.
   '</option>'."\n";
        }
    }

//generates teh list of all the months   
    function monthOptions()
    {
        $months = array( 1 => "January", "February", "March",
  "April", "May", "June", "July", "August",
  "September", "October", "November", "December" );

        foreach ( $months as $monthNo => $month )
        {
         ( $monthNo == date('n') ) ? $selected = ' selected=
   "selected"' : $selected = '';
          echo '<option value="'.$monthNo.'"'.$selected.'>'.$monthNo.
    ' - '.$month.'</option>'."\n";
        }
    }

 //generates the list of 31 days  
    function dayOptions()
    {
        for ( $i = 1; $i <= 31; $i++ )
        {
            ( $i == date('j') ) ? $selected = ' selected="selected"'
   : $selected = '';
            echo '<option value="'.$i.'"'.$selected.'>'.$i.
   '</option>'."\n";
        }
    }
?>

Secondly, this is the html+PHP to make the front end, that means to put the form on a web page. here we call the functions created above.

<select>
<?php dayOptions(); ?>
</select>
-
<select>
<?php monthOptions(); ?>
</select>
-
<select>
<?php yearOptions(); ?>
</select>
