reengineering my life

Monday, March 3rd, 2008

Right now I don’t have internet connection at home yet, so except for occasional posts from my browser using Scribefire, its not very convenient for me to be very responsive on this site for the time being – please excuse any ignored comments. This is due to an attempt to simplify my life and hopefully […]

Here is a list of tools that makes a developer’s life easier… Scite – Lightweight Powerful Text Editor: Though there are other ones like Notepad++, Scite is quite comprehensive and amazingly fast, and based on screenshots only seemed to be move lightweight than Notepad++.

blogging from Firefox

Wednesday, February 13th, 2008

Mesmerized by the number of plugins and customization available for Firefox. And in my new job that I’ve started this week (more about that shortly), I’m not tied to IE anymore and so spent more time exploring Firefox. Installed some of them and WOW now my browser is far beyond a mere browser – in […]

two small Christmas stories…

Tuesday, December 25th, 2007

This year I think I can relate more to Christmas than ever before… There are two fascinating short stories that may not take more than a few minutes, but are more than worth your time… One is a real life story: For the Man Who Hated Christmas The other is a simple fable…  and though its […]

I'm not really all that interested in meditation by itself

Tuesday, July 31st, 2007

Being just a novice in meditation, it dosen’t make sense to talk about it much, though I’ve ended up writing far too much already on this site! Anyone who comes here on their own can read it, but in person, I rarely ever say anything on the topic. All my closest friends and family, who […]

something about ug

UG has moved on

Monday, April 2nd, 2007

Now that all the hype of cricket players who are considered to be representing our country by many modern patriots has died down a little bit, maybe readers are in a bit more receptive mode to one of the many true heros of our country (without any ads 😉 ) From: UG Krishnamurthy U.G. is […]

some quotes for Valentine's day

Monday, February 19th, 2007

[Had written this earlier, but could not post] I was quite curious about what the fuss was all about (I liked an article in the newspaper that said that true lovers would do on Valentine’s day what they’d do on any other day!) Googled to discover that St. Valentine was a great saint of pure […]

off late…

Sunday, February 18th, 2007

Off late I just haven’t been able to make the time for blogging – it seems surprisingly elusive! I have a lot of things in queue but somehow the queue is just becoming longer! Also I’m trying to be more of a reader nowadays than a writer, and have been reading other’s blogs/comments (many that […]
