Looking back

I am going to cheat on postaday2011 by rehashing my old post. I was arguing with a friend about when I got Gmail. I had the date around the end of May. Today I checked an old post and found that I had blogged on 9th June after finally getting my Gmail account. He had claimed he had it before 2004 which I knew was not possible. Wikipedia confirmed that Gmail was launched as an invitation only beta on 1st of April, 2004. Why am I not posting anything new? When I started blogging it was just cursorily about the new medium whereby you create your own website instantly. This was long back, when GeoCities where considered great for hosting websites (It offered 5 MB of storage) I was studying at that time, (mid to late 2000) and the blog was at blogspot.com. Soon it lost its novelty and I stopped blogging for a …

What am I looking forward to

All of us want more than we got, because that is human nature. I am no different, after all I am but a mortal. These are some of the things I look forward to in the immediate future. Fly my RC Plane; a Cessna 182 from Parkflyers Travel a bit, but I sure hope I will get time off from work for that. At work I am looking forward to my new lab machine. (i7, 4-8GB RAM, probably raided). At an intellectual level, I am hoping to learn new things. I am also hoping to blog more regularly. Not just a response to postaday2011 challenge, but real posts where I have put in a lot of thought. This post in is a response to the postaday2011 challenge.

Post-a-day – Day 2

So I decided that I will make the blog public again. So far very few people knew about it, and I never felt it necessary to invite people to the blog. However, yesterday, for no particular reason, I updated the site field on Facebook. And right now, I am updating the same on my Twitter Profile. I have absolutely no idea why I am doing this, since I was very satisfied with the way things have been going till now. Maybe it has something to do with the postaday2011 challenge. Anyhow, I spend the last 2 hours looking at other posts tagged with postaday2011 and I couldn’t find anything inspiring. Is postaday2011 too much that the quality of content will be very low? Maybe I should switch to postaweek2011. WordPress does provide some great “apps” (the word app has been voted as the word of the year by the American Dialect Society) …

Matrix

There was a time when all I could think of was flying. It was my dream, my ambition and my fantasy. These days, I am not able to dream, I have no more ambitions and I fantasize being a child again. Has this world broken me? I would like to think not. I may have accepted that my life is no longer being controlled by me, but that does not mean i am going to live my life by laws laid down by the society. Just because I did not have any say in my birth does not mean my life is not my own. If I was asked whether I would like to have a life in this world, I probably would have said no. But now that I am born, I  intent to live life the way I choose. Society, God or any superior being; whoever decided what …

Nothing to do

It is amazing how much time there is in 24 hours. Crazy, huh? Previously, I used to wonder how come I had no time to blog, check my mail, read a book or just day dream. But now that I have left my addiction to Travian behind, it seems I can’t think of anything to do. I guess until I catch the next wave, I will find myself with a lot of free time. I think I will go through the hundreds of videos on my hard disk. I am sure I will find something interesting to see. If you think of something to obsess about, let me know.

The fickle me

For the past 5 months, I have been playing travian a lot, and that is an understatement. At one point, I was playing on 3 servers, while helping 3 others play the game. I used Firefox to log into my accounts on 3 server, Chrome and K-Meleon to log into accounts of my alliance members. And while I was at work, I used to use my mobile to continue playing. It is over now, I have decided that I have been obsessing over the game far too long and have decided to quit. Sometime tomorrow afternoon my account will be closed. None of my alliance members are aware that I have decided to quit and it is going to affect the alliance ranking. As I am the highest ranked player 😀 in my alliance, no one would want me to quit. So maybe I will send a note before my …
