My Favourite Videogames (Part 1)

I love videogames. I can't call myself a serious gamer, but I've played my share of good and bad games ever since I started playing Super Mario Advance 4 on a GBA SP fourteen years ago. Some games have left a deeper impression on me than others. Objectively, the games…

Be The Opposite

"The Opposite" (S05E21) was a watershed episode for Seinfeld. Not only did the series' direction change hands from Tom Cherones to Andy Ackerman after it, but the plots also became more focussed on the personality flaws in the characters rather than the bizarre situations they got themselves into.…

ThinkPad 13: Thoughts after 18+ months

It's been over a year since I switched laptops and I want to share my thoughts on my current one - the Lenovo ThinkPad 13 Gen 1. Before getting this laptop, I had been using a Lenovo IdeaPad G580 which I had gotten back in 2013. While that laptop suited…

On College Students

As a school kid, I was always fascinated by meeting college students from top tier colleges. There was something surreal in the way they talked and they confidently stood with T-shirts proudly proclaiming the name of their alma mater. I used to have the impression that no matter what came…

The Y2038 Glitch

I had written this article a bit more than a year ago for a college magazine. This topic has been done to death in a Q/A format, so if you're looking for something new about Y2038, you probably won't find it here Time has always been a finicky thing…

Blog Migration Complete!

Now I finally have my very own domain name! The old Blogger site is still available if anyone wants to see it but for all future intents and purposes, this will be the place where new blog posts will be put up. While I could configure all traffic to the…

Nil Sine Pokemon

I confess that I haven't been able to tend to this blog as much as I would've liked. It's not about time (or the lack of it), it's just laziness. Well, a lot of stuff has happened this month (and a lot of pics have been taken), which I simply…

'The 1 = Everything' equation

What's your unlucky number? "13", say some people "Nooo, 4", say the others. My unlucky number's 1. Yup. The closest whole number to zero really sucks for me. Cricket: Lost by 1 run. Badminton: 20-21 (no deuces). It's pretty much everywhere. More so from a competitive…

After the exams...

Well, today concluded a week's long affair of exertion. To be honest, it really wasn't a lot of work this time. Can't say that these exams really ended on a high note with every student's perennial fear - Hindi. Photography's awesome! Expect pictures in my upcoming posts.…

Before the exams...

I really haven't been doing justice to this blog for quite some time. It's probably out of laziness that I couldn't bring myself to update it either. With the advent of Pokemon Platinum on the emulator, factor the time I want to spend on this to zero. That can change…
