Composer.phar, composer.lock and git

Prove that real but not virtual
I have been working on a project which used composer to manage dependencies. If you are a PHP developer and do not know about it, I think you should learn about it. If you happen to worry about the combination in the topic, that means you are already using composer. Great. In a project I was working on at work ...

The thinnest Music Interface

Prove that real but not virtual
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 ...

Suicide

Prove that real but not virtual
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

Prove that real but not virtual
I was always worried about having to go up in a unix directory tree with cd ../. Then I was introduced to 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 ...

Dear DMR,

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.

Dear Steve Jobs

Prove that real but not virtual
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 ...

The Demise of Android

Prove that real but not virtual
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 [...]

From nothing to something

Prove that real but not virtual
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.
