GNOME Asia 2011

Just a quick (and late!) heads-up for all of you who missed it — the GNOME Asia Summit 2011 is happening in Bangalore this week, with a bunch of really cool people doing hackfests through the week, and whole bunch of talks on Saturday and Sunday (April 2nd and 3rd). I’ll be presenting a talk […]

You can even connect to my tool using the Xesam NewSession method, but that’s about it. I’ve started out with GetProperty, but came upon an interesting […]

The idea behind such a tool is that most of us today work with a massive amount of diverse information everyday. Often we find […]

Things good and bad

Alas, Kurt Vonnegut is no more. Time I read Slaughterhouse 5. Currently on Margaret Atwood’s The Handmaid’s Tale. Time, it is short, as the semester end nears. And it appears that I will be busy this summer. Not much else that is spectacularly worthy of reporting. Now to read about routing protocols in mobile, wireless, […]
