I came across this post on readme.lk recently. It’s about upcoming policy on import of used computer systems to cut e-waste. Which is good. Because we do very little recycling. And e-waste consist of mostly non recyclable material with many toxic chemicals. However what I do not agree is the statement which claims Sri Lanka no longer need 15000 LKR ...

Upgrade to Mobitel Mega-Plan and Huawei E5331 Over last few years my wife and I used two Mobitel 1290 packages to connect two of our computers to internet.  We used two mainly for extra bandwidth and speed. With introduction of Mobitel Mega plans, we dropped one connection and upgrade the other one to 20Gb package. It let you use multiple SIMs with same connection. Our 3G dongles ...

Well, today is the last day of my twenties. In few more hours I’ll be 30 . It was a good time. Many things in life change in twenties. But you do continue doing some of the things you did earlier. But the difference is earlier you did them because you had to. Now you do them because you want to. Like studying. During ...

Since I posted links to Big Match live stream last couple of years. This year I got few questions asking for this years link. But the until yesterday there was no one publishing about a live big match stream. And there was even nothing to be found on Google.  But finally  ThePapare.Com is streaming Big Match. Here is the link. http://www.thepapare.com/index.php/live/646-live-134th-battle-of-the-blues /Rakhitha Related Posts: Royal Thomian – Big ...

Display Flicker After RAM Upgrade? Check PSU Outputs! These RAM are now officially retired. In case you are wondering why your monitor flicker and computer crash after a hardware upgrade, this might be the answer. New hardware can drive the voltage bellow 5% tolerance level required to run the PC smoothly. You can check the voltage level in BIOS or with a Multimeter. But don’t rush to buy a new ...

Full Airport Experience This Saturday  I went to Colombo airport to drop off my wife. Usually once I drop off someone, I leave the airport as soon as they pass the scanners to go to check in counters. But since this was Saturday morning and there was nothing much to do afterwards, me and another friend who came to drop off his wife decided to hang out a little ...

I don’t have a serious phobia or anything. I have gone through lot of cosmetic/corrective dental work including few extractions during my teen years as my teeth were a mess.  But I avoid dentists as much as I can. I just don’t like to go there. I used to bring up all the sorts of excuses to skip mandatory dental visits during school days. Even ...

I watched Madagascar 3: Europe’s Most Wanted couple of weeks back at Liberty Cinema at Kollpity. Even-though the story was bit predictable and common it was still enjoyable. For me Madagascar was never about a story but if was about the animals and the monkeys and the penguins. This version on Madagascar  incorporated more music, including the best version of “I like to Move it” yet. But the ...

Ice Age 4 and 3D Bandwagon in Sri Lanka Image from Wikipedia Around this time of last year, Sri Lanka did not have any 3D movie theater.  If you wanted to have a 3D movie experience, only choice was to go for a movie while in another county. Finally with the end of 2011, MC Cineplex opened with one 3D theater. Now we are half way through 2012 and there are 4 theaters ...

When you visit a temple you can always see many flags hanging on the branches of Bo tree with text written on them to invoke blessings on various people for various reasons. It could be a simple wish to pass an exam, get well from a ...

Apparently some self-proclaimed Turkish Muslim hacker hacked my utterly insignificant blog. This blog gets about 30 visitors a day, on a really good day. And I don’t know what the point of hacking this one. Who ever got in, messed up the admin accounts of the blog and changed the home page saying that he/she is Muslim and from Turkey. But I really doubt that. ...

I recently started watching this TV show called True Blood. Which is mainly a story about vampire human interaction based on the set of novels “The Southern Vampire Mysteries” by Charlaine Harris. It’s sort of like Twilight for grown ups. It is much darker, and more sophisticated than Twilight and uses lot more violence, horror and sex. True Blood is definitely not for kids or sensitive people. ...

Some news travel very fast. And some don’t.  Even when both news is about the same thing. Sometimes you see news in big bold letters on the front page of multiple news papers. And few days later there is a small piece of writing in an inner page stating that the original news was reported incorrectly, which you never notice. Sometimes blogspear also act in the ...

Chaaya Tranz – Hikkaduwa – A Review I recently visited Chaaya Tranz Hotel in Hikkaduwa on a company trip. Overall it was an excellent experience and a great place to relax. It is the former Coral Gardens Hotel which is renovated and re-branded as an excellent 4 star beach resort. As a result everything is new. It is located in Hikkaduwa off Galle Road. Therefore it is very easy place to ...

Deer Park Hotel – Giritale – A Review My wife and I took a road trip to Polonnaruwa on 12th and 13th of May.  The day before the Shiva Devalaya was reportedly broken into. And it was some needed time out after a long time, even though it’s not the best time of the year to visit that part of the country due to high temperature. During our ...
