the great takeover

Tuesday, December 18th, 2007

Now that this fellow is taking over, I can sit back and relax… 😉 Heh heh, but seriously – I hope I manage to not let any of my own ambitions or interests bother him! —— Dear reader, thanks for visiting, I’ve just been a bit “busy” 🙄 but will catch up with this site […]

my first tag: what does blogging mean to me?

Saturday, October 6th, 2007

Well this is the first one that I’m following up on… as in general I’m not all that enthusiastic about tags. But since I was here in Poona with net access, somehow managed to not procrastinate this one. Srikanth: back bencher’s forgettable corner tagged me with this… Q1. Are you happy/ satisfied with your blog, […]

general tips while forwarding emails

Wednesday, August 29th, 2007

Some simple suggestions about forwarding any mail you may feel is worth forwarding: Use BCC while copying unrelated people.

Trim out redundant text like ads, etc and preferably also lines that say […]

the return of the common man

Wednesday, August 15th, 2007

The common man has returned, with a bit more understanding of his commonality with all living things in the world than before.

relaxed blogging

Monday, May 14th, 2007

This common man’s blog site is mostly about sharing my happiness and discoveries with others. The initial idea was to call it a journal… but later on couldn’t help using the word blog – I like Suresh’s definition – blogging is just a private conversation between you and yourself. I originally used to write emails […]

Sunday, April 8th, 2007

a mugshot of suresh the thug! Originally uploaded by common man. Here’s a mug shot of the thug who has stolen many hearts through his Meditation Photography blog site. As I’d said earlier actually the time slot was very narrow… still I said let me see him even if its just for a few minutes. […]

savoring the silence

Friday, April 6th, 2007

I’m finding out how nice it is not to have a website and not needing to write anything but simply listening to what others have to say on their own sites 8) Off late, something has changed. I’ve noticed in me a subtle but significant shift in my perception of things in general – and […]

Wednesday, March 28th, 2007

Finally. Ok, plugins are missing esp the spam checker so getting royally spammed, so temporarily enforced moderation of comments for the time being, till I get things fixed – maybe over the weekend or so… Cheers! 8) Bellur in a mail was joking Sanjay’s blog has come back after a near-death-experience! Heh heh well it […]
