Archis is an aspiring Jedi Knight documenting his experiences throughout his struggle to learn the ways of the force…
At the moment he works at Microsoft in Redmond, working on the Windows Live team.
He spends his time coming up with new coffee recipes, aging books, and tinkering with engineering projects at home that involve lots of electricity, heating stuff, burning stuff, and generally making things that blow up.
He is on a quest of pure awesomeness 24/7/365, so if you have something that’s awesome, and need company, just ping him!
To answer the big question on everyone’s mind, what the heck does Archis mean, and why do people sometimes call him Archishmat? Archishmat is his legal name though not many know that. It’s a sanskrit name for one of the (330 million) Gods from Indian Hindu beliefs, who goes by the more common contemporary name Vishnu. For the uninitiated, this name is as wierd and unheard-of in India as it is anywhere else, so he’s quite used to raised eyebrows and probing questions.
He claims to be a liberal who doesn’t believe in religion, although one who believes in ethics, morals, freedom of opinion, freedom of speech, and above all an expectancy of consistency from people.
