My thoughts on playing the last three Pokemon gens in reverse.
I really like the DJI/Ryze Tello. It's a great nano drone and its feature list is hard to match at its price point. The camera/video quality is very good and for
A big change that I've realised during undergrad is that engineering doesn't feel 'magical' anymore.
I recently returned home from a very memorable 4.5 months in Singapore. I've been to many places, met amazing people, and learned so much during my internship at the Acoustic Research Laboratory
It's been almost two months since I've landed in Singapore. I'm here for completing my undergraduate thesis on "Disruption Tolerant Networks for Underwater Applications" at NUS. I'm working under Prof. Mandar Chitre at
I am delighted to announce that my work on Delay Tolerant Networks has culminated into a paper, published 11 months since the project started! In this project, I worked with a CS faculty
Part 2 of my favourite videogames!
Thoughts on The Last Lecture, by Randy Pausch
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
Streaming video over Wi-Fi just got better!
Much time has passed and much code has been written since my last update. Adaptive Streaming (a better name TBD) for Ardupilot is nearly complete and brings a whole slew of features useful
I'm really excited to say that I'll be working with Ardupilot for the better part of the next two months! Although this is the second time I'm making a foray into Open Source
"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
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
Last month, I attended KDE's annual conference, Akademy. This year, it was held in Almeria, a small Andalusian city on the south-east coast of Spain. The name of the conference is no misspelling,
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
It's been almost a year since I finished my GSoC project for implementing discontinuous file selections as a KIOSlave. The ioslave is now officially shipped in the KDE ExtraGear Utils software package and
We have liftoff! Cue me trying to not get my fingers cut off The quadcopter has been built! I had some problems during the building process, so this is a guide which will
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
I've been gravitating more towards working on electronics projects. It's a nice change from pecking the keyboard all day and it has plenty of interesting challenges of its own. The biggest difference I
Recently, I've been trying to read more long form literature. It's been an interesting experience to wane myself off of social media and that experience certainly deserves a post of its own soon.
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
This semester has gone a little too fast for my liking. Though there were plenty of good memories and takeaways from this semester, it has been by far my most stressful time in
That’s it. After a combined total of 217 git commits, 6,202 lines of code added, and 4,167 lines of code deleted, GSoC 2016 is finally over. These twelve weeks of
I'm a lot closer to finishing the project now. Thanks to some great support from my GSoC mentor, my project has turned out better than what I had written about in my proposal!
This project has been going well. Though it was expectedly difficult in the beginning, I feel like I am on the other side of the learning curve now. I will probably make a
I have officially started my GSoC project under the mentorship of Boudhayan Gupta and Pinak Ahuja. The project idea's implementation has undergone some changes from what I proposed. While the essence of the
Wow! I have been selected for the Google Summer of Code! For the better part of the summer vacation, I will now be committing myself to write code for KDE to implement my
I spend a lot of time thinking since I've joined college. I had postponed a lot of introspection during the two years I spent slogging away for the JEE. But now, with ample
Hey everyone! I am a first year computer science undergraduate from BITS Pilani, Hyderabad Campus. I am looking forward to working for KDE for the GSoC. My project idea is based on solving
Ever since I got my new Canon 700D, I've been looking more into photography as an art than ever before. Thanks to internet photography guides, less light pollution in uni campus than urban
As the title indicates, it's been a while since I've written anything here. I don't know if anyone still reads this blog, but I sure appreciate if you do! So, I guess some
Hey guys! I haven't been able to get too many scenic shots of late, so I've invested some of my photography time in taking photos at night. Here are some of the shots
Hi guys! Recently bought myself some free time to publish a brand new blog post, centred on my photography work! I guess I also owe all of my avid readers an apology: it's
Gosh, does time fly. It's been months since my last blog post, owing quite a bit to 10th grade and other activities. However, I'm back with a new, special post on what makes
This is probably the shortest duration between two meaningful posts on this blog: just eight days! Today also represents the 1st anniversary of this blog, and hence, I present my new photography album.
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
Pulling out my camera, adjusting the exposure, quietly waiting for the perfect shot, I present to you, my viewers, my new photography album. The old collection can be found here. Note: not all
The Indian education system has been one with many ups and downs. Viewing from not an expert's position, not from a parent's position, not from a teacher's position, but from a high school,
Today the world has reached a new milestone, which has compelled me to change the very name of this blog itself. Yes, we reached the population landmark of 7,000,000,000 or
Hi guys, its been a long time since I've updated this. Got a few photos with my awesome Canon SX1-IS cam. (click to enlarge) A pity, because I always found that a rather
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:
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
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
Blogging. Well, something I've wanted to do earnestly for some time. And just as well, this is and will be my very first post. (May 8. The day of the 2011 National NTSE
