Clean slate

I had moved away from blogger 10 years ago. I moved to WordPress.com and then to my own hosting but continued to use WordPress as the blogging platform. In recent years I haven't been blogging much but I kept the website alive as an ego stroke. I kept moving between hosting providers because all of them have sign-up teaser rates which go up quite a bit after the first year. So I kept moving my blog to a different hosting provider every year. Most recently I was using 1and1.com for my hosting. They had an auto-renew flag which was set to true. Fortunately, my credit card had expired and they were not able to charge me. I did some thinking and decided that all I needed was to host my blog, I didn't need full-fledged custom hosting. But I also wanted to keep my domain name. I checked WordPress.com but found that they charge an unfair amount of money to use custom domain names.  On Blogger it is free since I use Google Domains to manage my domain name. So 10 years later, here I am. Now the question is whether I should start with a clean slate or port all the old blog entries. I am still undecided on that. Either way, this is a fresh start :)

When Binil comes to Mavelikara for vacation we used to have long chats on topics ranging from cricket, politics and other bullshit to programming and the internet. He could talk endlessly on any topic beneath the sun, and he sure has his own opinion about everything. He vast knowledge on certain topics are pretty impressive and his logical & analytical way of thinking has influenced my thought process significantly. When Tavant had a vacancy in Microsoft Technologies open, I sent him my resume. He gave me an idea on the type of questions they asked at Tavant and what k

Win Bigly

Do you like Scott Adams? His recent book How to Fail at Almost Everything and Still Win Big  was an eye-opener to me. If you haven't read it yet I highly recommend you buy it now or check it out from your local library and read it. You will learn at least a few tips and tricks to make your life better. He is coming up with a new book named Win Bigly - Persuasion in a World Where Facts Don't Matter  and a sample chapter is available for download now. Technically it is only for people who pre-ordered the book but they don't validate the information you give them, so you can enter anything. Go to this link and enter your information and you will be shown a link to download the PDF. I enjoyed it. I hope you will too.
