Mumbai Indians go down in the history books

If you look back in history and read the lives of the greatest of warriors who inspire generations after generations; you read how unanimously they won their battles, how they earned respect from the enemies they fought and how valiantly they fought their last battle. For once the result doesn’t matter. Today, I feel the same for Mumbai Indians. You made us proud, you won my heart. – Akky

I have cut down my RSS intake further :)

Yes, I have once again cut down my RSS intake. It’s just a little above 150 now. Feels lighter 🙂

Update: Looks like its a cleanup day. I read a series of left over posts today and finally few minutes back just pressed “All Items” and then “Mark all as read”. Feels much better now. Why didn’t I ever think of this before (?)

P.S. Leave me a link to your personal blog below. I would love to keep pace with it ;)

Is my Internet connection down?

Below is a snippet of conversation between Me and Myself:

Me: Is the Internet connection down?

Myself: One second. Let me Google. Presses ‘⌘+Option+F‘, types a search query (usually ‘Akshay Surve’) and hits ‘Return’

Myself: Oops. Yes it is!

(3 seconds)

Me: The Internet modem seems alright. Must be a service provider issue.

Myself: May be.

Myself, checks up some random link or bookmark ( If it loads in the first attempt, presses ‘⌘+R‘ multiple times to make sure that it’s not loaded from the cache. He tries searching on Google once again but still the Google search results pages doesn’t load.

Myself: Hey, did load.

Me:(Concludes) site is working, Internet is down! :p

Do you identify with Me and Myself?

Laughter is the best medicine

Chintu would stammer regularly and so he would keep quiet most of the time. Once while answering his teachers question everyone started laughing on him. Few students were making fun of his stammering, some were bored of the lecture and others didn’t want to be left out and effectively everyone was laughing on him. Chintu decided that he will never answer the teachers questions ever again.

Moral of the story: Laughter is the best medicine, only for oneself.

Jack and Jill

Jack and Jill went up the hill
To fetch a pail of water.
Jack fell down and broke his crown,
And Jill came tumbling after.

Moral of the story: Sometimes even God plays pranks.

i gotta get a UPS now.

For the last couple of months we have been experiencing momentary intermittent power failures/fluctuations. Now it surely doesn’t affect the Saas-bahu soap operas but has surely made my life tougher. It has rendered one of my RAM chips useless and because of which I had to install a new one. Remember the podcast interview I did with Freeman Murray at BarCampPune3 is in post-production now. Some of the files have been corrupted and I would have to start the whole thing again. Extremely sorry for the delay. So, now its time to get a UPS for my home computer and save the trouble. I must thank Firefox as its ‘restore session’ feature comes in handy during such restarts. Signing off…
