I write ideas that strike me, sometimes just to remember them later, and just once in a while, you might find something useful. :-)

Interpretation of dreams

My grandfather passed away last month. But then, he was 95, and if not for the fact he was a bit hard of hearing and his eye sight was failing, then he had lived a remarkably healthy life. At 25, I don’t think I am having such a healthy life. I got news about his death after I came back from work and started for home the same day. I was traveling by rail, and I started catching up on my sleep as soon as I got on. I had one of the strangest, if not the strangest dream that day. As with almost every dream, I don’t have a good recollection of the dream. I do remember that I was at a place, which seemed familiar to me in the dream. And I was introduced to a spirit. At that point I thought I made acquaintance with a spirit, …

HR "LOVES" Hotmail

Seems Microsoft is losing favor everywhere. Users hate Windows, even if most of them use it. Other companies hate it, even if their business is flourishing because of it, and so on and so forth…. Old Bill must be wondering what he did wrong to get the wrong end of the stick. Here is something more. HR people hates Hotmail. The reason… You can’t pretend being an internet expert and use a Hotmail account at the same time. You can read the full story here, or if you are interested in reading the original Spanish version you can do so here. So if you don’t have an email, which goes something like @hotmail.com, then better use some other email address. No, not Yahoo, thats too common. Gmail is good, but then now its out of beta, so anyone can have it. Try something exotic. Or maybe you can try to …

Excuses

That was rude wasn’t it? I been away for such a long time, and then out of nowhere, as if time never went by I post something. I been called rude before, and I understand why I am considered rude. But I can’t change my habits, can I? It’s a good thing I am not eligible to join Air Force or for that matter any branch of the defense. I will surely forget to salute superiors, because I would be in a hurry to tell what I wanted to tell.Well I have been certainly out of touch for some time now. My laptop was not with me for quite some time, so that explains why I haven’t been posting (yea, sure!) or for that matter why I have been out of touch with most of my friends. Well, I am planning to make an extra hard effort so that I …

Firefox & Google

I am a big fan of Firefox these days. It all started because IE started acting up with Gmail. Problem with the security settings. I tried changing the settings, but it seems there is some problem with the XP as a whole. I been having problem with it ever since I got my laptop back.Well, I had installed Firefox a long time back, and I just started using it. I wasn’t a big fan of tabbed browsing, but now I am. Multiple home pages, now thats a good feature, though IE 7 is supposed to have it. But what I love the most, is the customization that is available with all the add-ons that are available.I have been a fan of Google for a long time now. But recently I started using Google Calendar and Google Reader. Amazing products that you should use, if you are not using it already. …

Back from the wild

Been a long time, hasn’t it? Almost 11 months. I am definitely not a blogger, atleast not a regular one. I was truly in the wild, figuratively speaking. For almost 7 months I have been living without constant access to internet. Well, I am still not out of the wilderness, but atleast now I have a laptop, and I got a GPRS connection, while not the fastest, does gives me access to the internet whenever I need it.How did I survive without internet for such a long time. I still find it difficult to believe that a person who used to be in front of the computer, connected to the internet at 128 kbps was, able to go without internet for 7 months. Well I have gone through the experience, and I don’t want to go through it again.What has been happening with me? Well I am now working at …

New Bike

Updates….I bought a new bike. TVS Star City. Not that great on power, but good on mileage. That’s what I need now. I have to travel 50 km each day, so I need something which would be very economical.Other than that, I had a long ride to Coimbatore and back. Around 400 km in one day. But I was traveling at 50 km/h. it took around 7 hours to reach there and another 7 to come back. 14 hours on the bike in one day… I am planning to put some pictures of my bike on the blog… so watch out for it.Other than that, each of my days are so similar to the day before and day after, at least on the surface. There are so many subtle but important differences, but let me not bore anyone by talking about it here.Today a friend of mine got engaged. Another …
