take a work break!

Monday, July 30th, 2007

This is a pretty good program – thanks to Conan who sent me a link. It reminds us to take breaks during computer usage. It really helps to avoid the almost invisible physical strain that we are inadvertently causing to ourselves. The animated excercises are pretty cool! I tried this software today and at first […]

monsoon Kannada movie – mungaaru maLe

Wednesday, May 2nd, 2007

Recently went to Mungaarina maLe – Nataraj theater, in Central – (opp to Samrat hotel). Initially went more as a driver than a viewer as I was kind of neutral about watching.
