Short story: The war under a hot sun

The rubble from La Combre's horses continued to rain on my helmet and the broken pieces feathered the eyes continually. It had been four hours since we started for the day.

What sort of a fan is a FAN?

One of the questions I tend to think about more often these days is what does the fan in me feel with the passing of time? There are many types of fans out there, fans who can spot the statistical changes in every attribute of every show and fans who feel for what happens in front of them. Who is the bigger fan and who is a show off and how much can we be in the middle of both?

How twitter powers this nerd

Twitter started its life as an online short messaging service wherein people can broadcast anything they want to say in 140 characters or less  and can subscribe (‘follow’) to messages from people of their interest. There was confusion initially on where exactly the service would fit having Facebook/Orkut like social applications doing them already. The Iranian revolution happened and the architecture of the application funneled sharing of news, information and media from the revolution, exposing the dark side of autocratic governance. Even the biggest of cable and satellite media in the United States featured news sections concentrating on tweets from the epicenter and used them on public debates.This was a major marketing boom that spiraled the service so much that the downs due to system overload were frequent then.

Where do you like to go swimming?

Whether it is swimming in the pool the Ocean, thoughts ,ideas, physical or intellectual, it is a fun activity to do. I learnt to swim in the water when I was in my 3rd grade and have loved it ever since.

Where would I love to go swimming?

Fresh water. Although I don't oppose intellectual swim, its just that I do the latter in fast paced and short dashes a few times everyday. Fresh water swimming creates a sensation of being free, unconstrained as opposed to the two dimensional planar movement we do bin moving on the Earth's surface.
It is one of the best exercises, it tones more muscles than localized exercises at the gym. The change at the core of the body is in alignment with the other parts that it prevents any long term injuries like the lumbar and back pains that are experienced frequently by localized exercisers.

The stance gets improved, the gluts get toned. We start to stand and move in an open chested fashion that creates an aura of confidence in us. That is a very important attribute that could aid in our social life, be it at work place or at parties.

Won the Ruby on Rails tutorial book

Partook in the online competition that Obie Fernandez, the author of the 'Rails Way' conducted. It was about our goals and how we approach our careers, and how we are trying to learn the Ruby language, what we feel about the ecosystem etc.
As a eresult I was awarded the 'Ruby On Rails' tutorial by Michael Hartl. The book is an excellent and one of the best I've followed, the author seems to read the minds of the new learners.
Each subject is dealt with correct pace and depth and no lazy examples and cramming chapters. Just reading about Hartl makes us understand how the author was able to do this wonderful job.

Here is the link to Amazon's page.
