  3. Hi, Santosh!

    “1. My girlfriend broke up with me (I did not, she did and I moved on)” DUDE! And on number one. Bold move, I tell you. :)

    These kind of lists are in fact quite fun to read as not many people are willing to share the stuff they enjoy on more that professional level. The “highs and lows” of life are good stuff to be shares as it makes it easier for others to relate. For example myself, I feel that security testing / hacking / penetration testing /etc. is “way out there” and I feel that I can never grasp that kind of technical aspect of testing. However seeing that you’re also a normal human being with ups and downs, I just might be more willing to delve into that area.

    Those “hard core testing people” that are up in the public and talk about testing, might become intimidating on some level. The “humanizing” makes them easier to approach and thus more susceptible to the information you are sharing.

    Great and bold post, Santosh! I admire you, truly.

    BR, Peksi

  5. Looks very traditional. And why is that you call it as “corrupted” in your blog name?
