  • AirTel connection speeds appear to be brilliant in the morning and then degrades by mid-morning and by afternoon, can’t even stay connected. #

  • OK, AirTel at least provides good customer support. They said that my broadband issues would be fixed by today and they are … #
  • I don’t have any connection dropping issues now and the speed is considerably better than it was yesterday. Let’s see how it does all day :) #
  • Back to SLT ADSL. AirTel was fine early in the morning but connection drops became more frequent as the morning progressed. Too bad. #

  • Interesting watching Safari 4 memory usage – started at about 25MB. Opened two tabs and it just keeps climbing 40MB, 50MB, 60MB, 70MB … #
  • I love the full-text history search and the more graphical web dev tools (Firebug has the same features and more but the Safari one seems >> #
  • << better integrated) but overall, Safari still lacks in the usability department. There’s no way (that I can see) to set new links to >> #
  • << open in tabs instead of windows (and no, I don’t want to CTRL+click), search bar cannot be customized, and memory usage is a bit high. #

  • Most of the major need-to-have features appear to be there in all browsers now. So the little things become more important now. Like >> #
  • << speed of loading pages, reliability and so on. So I’ve switched to Opera 10 alpha as my default since it works better than Chrome :) #
  • OK, the Safari 4 beta ups the ante in the browser war :) As I said about Opera 10, all the browsers now have the same basic features … #
  • What’s more, the browsers appear to be copying stuff from each other. Soon, they’ll all look more or less the same 😀 #

  • Hmm .. Opera 10 Alpha does the Acid3 test with a 100% score. But is it just me or are all browsers beginning to look alike? #
  • Going to watch “Delhi 6”. They say this shows the “old Delhi” and that the city has a different character of its own… We’ll see :) #
  • “Delhi 6” was interesting. Definitely not your average Hindi movie, more like a multi-layered social commentary :) #
  • Time for the daily dose of “Bones” and then off to bed :) #

  • “Good Luck Chuck” is a horrible, horrible movie. If all you want to see is people having sex, then it’s a great movie. Otherwise, total FAIL #
  • “Igor” was fun, and even funny at times, and was enjoyable. Nothing new plotwise, but still a good way to pass some time :) #

  • Got AirTel broadband yesterday. Didn’t really work out for me. Speed is lower than with ADSL. And it also appears to have messed up WiFi :-( #
  • Watched the second episode of “Dollhouse” today. Still seems like an excuse for Dushku soft-porn to me. Not engaging and slightly annoying. #

  • Test message from PHP class! #
  • Honest, the Martian Ate Your Dog by Fahim Farook (Book) in Science Fiction & Fantasy http://lulu.com/content/213630 #
  • Got my first revenue cheque for my book today. But guess I won’t give up my day job … oh wait, I don’t have a day job 😀 #
  • Watching “Socha Na Tha” and enjoying it immensely – the story is so fluid and flows so effortlessly that it’s a pleasure to watch :) #

  • “Janne Tu … Ya Jaane Na” is excellent. Unlike usual Bollywood attempts at humour, this one was really, really funny! Last frame priceless. #
  • “Passengers” – tiny concept, lots of meandering, and humongous time waste! I was disappointed. Like a very bad M. Night Shyamalan … #

  • OK, today looks like “one of those” days :) Was feeling better than I had for a while but now my computer is acting up … #
  • Got Laurie a crossword program for the iPhone which downloads puzzles daily. Now I want something similar for my Omnia … :) #
