2007 March : Positive Peace

Iron Maiden concert was mad, violent, loud, melodic, a dream, exhaustive, great trip, mostly bad opening acts,  and a great great great show, probably the biggest rock/metal concert to happen in the country. Why did it get over so quickly?

Richard Stallman, Linus Torvalds and Mark Shuttleworth (mostly through Google Video) are instigating and inspiring me to buy a piece of hardware and get focussed on GNU-Linux. Frankly, Linux is my exile. The parting has been long and I miss it.

Life is back at peace.

Finished watching the 3 seasons of Entourage. Contemplating to  start watching Prison Break.


My backpack is packed, and i’m ready to go…

I am standing here outside the elevator door

I hate to wait for the slow lift

But the dawn ‘ll break 2moro early mornin

The Indica is waitin’, blowin his whistle

Already I’m so excited I could sing

So diss me and email me

Tell me that you wont use trademark terms

and you will upload bulks only for me

Cause I’m leeeaving ….on Kacheguda Express

I know i’ll be back on Monday morning…

Oh babe… I so wanna go….

Pre-built might work for typical users. But pre-built didn’t work for Google. And pre-built doesn’t work for me.

We aren’t typical users. We’re programmers. The x86 commodity PC is the essential, ultimate tool of our craft. It’s the end product of 30 years of computer evolution. And it’s still evolving today, with profound impact on the way we code. If you treat your PC like an appliance you plug into a wall, you’ve robbed yourself of a crucial lesson on the symbiotic relationship between software and hardware. The best way to truly understand the commodity PC is to gleefully dig in and build one yourself. Get your hands dirty and experience the economics of computer hardware first hand– the same economics that have shaped the software industry since the very first line of code was stored in memory.

Who knows, you might even enjoy it.

I’ve seen Satriani play in Bombay. That was one unforgettable evening. Can’t imagine what it would be like watching the G3 perform.
