Goodbye

A few days ago, a post that was supposed to remain private went live, because apparently, even after almost a decade of using WordPress, I still tend to make mistakes with it.

Anyway, that was an unfinished post, which promised that I would resume blogging here on a weekly basis. That post remained unfinished, because I didn’t really want to resume blogging here.

This blog has been a lazy, relaxed place for me to come and ramble about some random topic, for almost eight years. Its original purpose was to get me into the habit of writing on a daily basis, and it succeeded…until I stopped writing on a daily basis this year.

Now when I look back, I’m proud to see how far I’ve come since that day when ants crept into my laptop. My story has seen impressive highs and predictable lows.

However…

Now it’s time to say goodbye.

The blog’s been dead for almost the whole of 2018, but I made a couple of half-hearted attempts to keep it alive. I was so lazy in running this blog that I never gave it a name. And whatever work I do in terms of writing, next year, will not fit in well in such a place.

So here’s the plan: I’ll spend some time next week giving this blog one final re-design. Actually it’ll mostly be one of the old designs that I used last year. You’ll be able to read all of my posts dating back to April 2011. The intent is to turn this into an archive for all my previous work. After that redesign, I’ll be done.

This will be the last post here. To all my regular readers (if you even manage to come back here again) – a big thank you. You know how to reach me, let’s remain in touch.

To the random visitor who reached here from a random Google search, thanks for visiting! Feel free to look around and read seven years’ worth of ramblings if you feel like it. There’s not much, to be honest.

Goodbye.

Staying Away From Smart Speakers Is A Smart Idea

It’s a good time to be alive. This is the most comfortable chapter in Human history. Science & Technology have given us many gifts, which we have used to extend our lifespan, stay healthy and spend most of our time staring at screens. Don’t get me wrong, staring at screens is essentially what I do most of the day, but I’m happy I haven’t yet progressed to the next stage in human evolution: talking to smart speakers.

Thoughts On Avengers Infinity War

Two things before I get started:

  1. SPOILERS! Do not read this post unless you’ve watched the movie or do not mind reading spoilers.
  2. This isn’t a review. I’ve given up the notion that I can write a decent “review” of a movie. So this is merely a post containing some scattered thoughts.
