Jane Austen and the picturesque Winchester

Discovered today the house where Jane Austen spent the last few days of her life before dying. What a magnificent sight. Great minds need great places. I'll visit her grave soon.

There is so much of history preserved in England. It’s a trait I deeply admire and envy.

WHY WHY WHY?

I was stunned to learn today that Google will be shutting down its Google Reader. I couldn’t believe my eyes when I read it. How could this be? Has Google gone insane? Why did Google have to abandon its loyal ‘reader’ users?

Over the years, I’ve grown accustomed to using Reader for virtually everything technically possible – reading the news and blogs, keeping an eye on comments, house hunting, job hunting, video searching for Indian Railways…the list was limited only by my imagination.

Unfortunately, RSS requires a populace that’s a little more tech savvy than the current load of iCrap fed retards. RSS fell victim to an entire generation too used to a brain-numbing social-networking and share-everything phenomenon.

My heart is broken. Goodbye, Google Reader. You will be dearly missed.

Like father like son

Arihant slipped and fell from the bed today. What a scare it gave us.

Fortunately, he wasn’t seriously hurt – thanks to the wooden and carpeted floor.
