Nothing like waking up to Ellington in the morning.

Born again

Asha has created a new blog... yet again!
I hope the fit of enthusiasm lasts longer this time.


Why did social media have to steal me away from blogging?
I'll make amends.

You sit on my lap as we watch a YouTube video on Bertrand Russell.


Will Windows Live Writer be abandoned for good?
I hope Microsoft at least open-sources it.

The pizza flopped.

Battery Issues

My Nexus 7 battery was draining at an alarming rate all of a sudden. It would drain 50% overnight even when I wasn’t using it. I’ve still not ascertained the culprit but I guess an app that forcefully stopped background-apps when the monitor switched-off was the reason behind the anomaly. I’ve uninstalled many applications just to be on the safer. Apps have the bad habit of running as background services in Android (not specific to Android though; is by design).

I’m happy that the alarming running-out-of-juice has been finally fixed.

Google saved Blogger by buying it just when it was about to tank. For a while all was good. Google made some very obvious and much-needed improvements to the platform. And that was it.

Since than, Blogger has been one of Google’s neglected babies. Blogger’s biggest rival - Wordpress, marches on. Blogger, on the other hand, sits idly.
