I have often wondered why there was no alternative available to allow for the mass of people crossing the roads in Bambalapitiya, Kollupitiya and Fort, mostly while sitting exasperated behind the wheel of my car, behind many other drivers in a hurry to get to work. So I was honestly quite thrilled to hear about [...]

One of the hazards of being in services is that people expect you to be responsible for all service issues they’ve experienced with that company. So general conversation moves very quickly from the usual “Where do you work?” ice-breaker to the “oh! you work there? I had this terrible experience last Tuesday with …” All […]

We recently did some landscaping work, where my Mother-in-Law’s motto “every Baas will break something in the process of making something” was confirmed. Her call for constant supervision of the “experts” – something my own father constantly demands- was also vindicated when the water bills came in. Turns out the guy who “jazzed up” the water [...]

Not too long after my post on LED lighting, it seems that Sri Lanka has commissioned its first solar power plant in the week ending 13 August 2011. The state media has publicized the commissioning of the 500kw plant, as has LankaBusinessOnline. While the economics may still be debatable, it’s good to see that Sri [...]

I was very happy to read in the Sunday Times that there’s a proposal to bring in LED street lighting to Sri Lanka. The company concerned with the project, Carbon Futures is also planning on using local production facilities in partnership with local company RONA Electricals (Pvt) Ltd. The initial investment that they make is [...]

The Daily Mirror (yes, that website that stole my crappy photo and continued to use it without any attribution some time ago) has gone ahead and published an article about the resignation of the Sri Lankan cricket team’s Bus Driver. Many thanks to Mr. Senanayake for his continued highlighting of such moments of hilarity. Type [...]

In the beginning there was no spam. Or well, maybe there was, but no one wrote about it. And then people who wanted to sell stuff decided that the best way to sell it was to let everyone know. So there began bulk mailing and literally junk mail. With communications moving on to the internet, [...]

While reading for my postgraduate qualification I came across Yahoo’s value statement as part of the coursework. Interestingly, they also include a separate page for what they don’t value.

Picture from Reface.me So first it began with people tagging their friends on Avurudu (New year) greetings, then school/college/office/party function adverts. Then it turned out that there’s a whole subset of pictures which you can get tagged in on Facebook. Depending on what your friends think you are, you will find yourself tagged on a [...]
