The thinnest Music Interface The music lover in me was heart broken with the famous Amarok screw up waaay back then. I then used Cmus for a short period and then came across MoC (Music on Console) on crunchbang forums IIRC. MoC was my primary music player ever since. In MoC I would just browse to my music directory and play a song. MoC ...

Aaron Swartz has committed suicide. That news struck me hard. I only know him from his web presence but when something came up on my radar with Aaron’s name tag on it, I expected it to be good if not great. I thought he was a wise old man until I found today that he is of my age. Shocker! ...

No more cd dot dot slash I was always worried about having go up in a unix directory tree with cd ../. Then I was introduced this project at work where I noticed that I was doing so much cd-ing around. Sometimes I went so deep in the directory tree I had this scary feeling inside that I’d get lost in a dark pit (true story). ...

You were the father of C which definitely changed the world. You created Unix with Ken Thompson and it was probably the most important piece of technology for practical computing. some great people are great because they make their greatest contributions to the world and leave silently. You good sir will forever live in hearts of boring nerds like me. ...

Dear Steve Jobs, I never used an Apple product. Perhaps never will. But that is not really the point. The point is that you were an inspiration. A big one of those. Yes I respected the other Steve better (Fuck, I even called him ‘the other steve’). But you kept making the world talk about you and that made a ...

I don’t get to hear this so often. But when I do, I really try to reason and understand how it could happen. Despite my efforts, I haven’t been successful yet. Is the demise of android possible? Yes. Remember why we don’t get to ride dinosaurs these days? yeah?. Shit happens, right? I think that [...]

Today my blog marks five years of existence. Half a decade!. That’s so much for me, because I lose interest of things pretty soon. Blogging somehow stuck on the wall. And I’m happy about it. I honestly can’t believe that I kept doing it all this long. Yes I know it’s not without a lot of barren times in the ...

Is not an easy task. Anyone who has tried their hand in the job knows this very well. We all have been a part of some community at some point of our lives. If you can’t agree with the last sentence and your life is not horrible, I’d really like to know more about you :). It all begins from ...

So then there was Google+. Big brother Goog sure has cried long nights about the miscarriages that were wave and buzz. Being beaten up by facebook and twitter in the then coolest thing in the block should’ve hurt the search giant a lot. But now it’s time to see the light spread. I mean, see Google+ spread.

Currently I’m so out of social media madness. It was nice when I was already mad. It was awesome, actually. But then I got work. Became a busier man (The office doesn’t block a single thing. We have sensible people here.) and kept moving away from social media (Just Twitter for me). Every time I went back to Twitter to ...

It rekindled that habit. The habit formed in me when I still was a kid. The habit that made me understand good lessons about life without actually having to go through all those hardships. The habit that let me leave reality for a better imaginary world. Amazon Kindle did what once seemed impossible: Making me read, after the computer. And ...

I was really fascinated by the stuff I have read about truecrypt. I wanted to try that but I had two reasons to not do that. First, I had nothing really to hide; Second, I thought my poor hp mini won’t be able to handle encrypting a partition, if not the whole disk. And also I was lazy. My close ...

I love writing graphs. It might sound oxymoron to you. graphs and writing. But it’s possible. And I’ve been doing that even in last evening. If you are anything like me, you want me to spit out how to do that. And that’s exactly what I’m going to do. I met Graphviz an year back, when I was looking for ...

I love sleeping (The type that we do alone). And I love being with the computer too. These two apparently, don’t go so well together. Scientific research has proved that usage of computers are directly connected to insomnia. No wonder I’m such an insomniac, ‘a night owl’ in other words. I love science and I tend to believe in scientific ...
