I’m a Calvin & Hobbes fan. Have been for a long time. Once upon a time when I wasn’t as busy with work, I actually spent time collecting strips from the official site. Religiously. Every day. Built up quite a collection too. Recently I came across the collector’s edition of Calvin & Hobbes: The Complete […]
Three words that most people who know me know nearly run my life: Computers Internet Music How many people get a chance to do what they want to do, their hobby being their job, and their passion for something getting a chance to become something real & practical? Not many. I’m one of the luckier […]

I just cursed a friend thus: god is a witness to your crime. you will eat more salt than what is prescribed for a man of your body mass with your activity profile and consequently you will have to drink more water and piss more and in one such visits to the loo, you will […]
This guy got so upset about his boss suspending him, he went to his Boss’ house in the early morning and set his car on fire!
Like many other things, the Pareto’s rule also applies to the Indian DJs: 80% of them have heard only 20% of the music they ought to have. I listen to a lot of music myself: bought, borrowed, gifted, and stolen. Perhaps because of this, and/or because I had the right friends, I was in contact […]
You know… I just realised, drinking coke like water when you’re thirsty is a bad idea.
There have been times when I’ve wondered why I read The Register. Then comes along a report like “Student constructs hamster-powered mobe charger” with gems like We’ve often wondered for what purpose exactly hamsters were put upon this earth, and now we know: to charge mobile phones. and Perhaps if he’d knocked together a desktop […]
Greg Storey finally lets off some steam on the excessive DIY-GTD blogginess craziness over at his site and proceeds to put up a rather humourous “How To Stop Breathing Through Your Mouth”. When your mouth has been successfully closed, try to draw air into the lungs through your nose. If everything works like it should […]
