Like the name says, I'm an idleguy. With time to kill, a brain that yearns for information and fingers that fly, I'm bound to do my bit in commenting on things and adding information which I've gleaned from many sources.
I'm an enigma. I'm so lazy to move my ass to work, despite being a Sun Certified Solaris System Administrator. Yet my hobbies include testing beta software, writing beta exams & certifications - though they involve some serious time to study. I'm also a gun lover, a gambler with a keen eye on Poker which requires patience and skill. As a quiz freak I've thumped the living daylights of my local opponents and was on national TV and local radio in India - where in turn I was thumped by national gorillas. I also managed to win a round of quiz in Wikipedia. See tag below.

I've made several contributions; some entirely new while others expanding on existing ones. Hailing from the sub-continent, most of the topics revolve around issues where I'm from. Military history is one of favourite topics as is my interest in animals.
- Biryani was my first ever article in here.
- Afro Asian games - 2nd topic. 1st stub added.
