From campus dictionary - Net
(n.)A worldwide interconnection of computer networks which can be exploited for exchange of information, to boost businesses, improve academics or build scalable products to improve the lives of millions. Sadly reduced to a tool for stalking your crushes or salivating over cute kitten videos on youtube.
“Bhai bahaut bore ho raha hu. (sad smiley)” “Net down hai kya be?’
(n.)A class of folders found on DC++ containing educational videos which students watch, sometimes night-long. Available on a wide variety of subjects (read: categories) and are largely taste-dependent. It is highly recommended that you download and keep a few for on your hard disk, just in case the prof. announces a surprise quiz.
“Saale, teen baj gaye aur to soya nahi?! What’s up?” “Kuch khaas nahi. Bas bhajan sun raha tha bhai. (poker face)”
(n.) Remember back when we told you that the Cinema Club is what stands between students and mass- suicides in IIT-R? Guess what- we were lying. Actually they do, to a certain extent. But the major responsibility for this stands on the shoulders of the geeks who have built this life-saving tool. Designed to share files, documents and videos of all sort, DC++ comes in handy when downloading complete seasons of Prison Break at ultra-fast speeds.
“Bhai DC++ ni hota toh mera kya hota!”
From clubs ->
SDSLabs is perhaps one of the most iconic groups of IITR. Its initiation in 2010 acted as a symbol of hope for the geek community who were tired of being branded as uncool nerds and banished from the happening places in the campus. SDSLabs is the group that manages SDS, an open for all hobbies club section. SDS also includes various other sub-sections like Mobile Developement Group, Linux User Group and PAG. There’s however a dispute over the origin of SDSLabs. Some say it that it was established the same time as that of AT&T’s Bell Labs and helped in the development of Unix. We don’t believe them, as after all, Unix was made by God himself. Apart from releasing the much popular JEE counselling results on the internet, members of this section are responsible for the following activities:
a) Winning arbitrary coding competitions and making the most media friendly stories for IITR (unlike the ones involving youtube clips and makeup products).
b) Developing really cool apps like Muzi, Study Portal and Filepanda and rendering life-saving services of DC++. (check them out on: https://sdslabs.co/)
Programming and Algorithm Group is yet another extension of SDS. After Cricket, CS, DOTA and Ludo, Competitive Algorithmic Coding is one of the most famous sports of IITR. The International Collegiate Programming Contest organised by ACM society (ACM -ICPC) is an international coding competition. It acts as a qualifier for the Inter Galactic reality show called ‘So You Think You Can Code?’, organized on planet Betelgeuse 7. Apart from being active on such inter- galactic platforms, PAG frequently organizes coding lectures and contests for lesser beings too. A typical member of PAG looks like an ordinary humanoid with unusually high activity in the cerebral cortex of brain. We don’t know what that is but it makes the person in question extremely smart and totally unfit for social gatherings and parties.
