Dear memcached, life wouldn’t have been any simpler for a lot of programmers and sysops without you. You are very special to us. You will always stay special. Thanks for making our complicated lives simpler with your presence. You worked so hard for us, 24x7 hardly demanding any attention. So simple, yet so powerful. Congrats on your 10 years anniversary and keep making our lives easier with your awesomeness :)
Long long ago, Karteek dot Net was running on Python and Google App Engine. Then, I rewrote it in Ruby on Rails and ran it on Heroku. I was thinking of changing the layout and removing the Friendfeed part (as quite a few services stopped working on it). Finally, I stopped being lazy and spent some time to finish this. I rewrote it in Go, just to test waters on Go. Well, so far from my experience I can tell that Go is lovely but having coded in Ruby and Python for a while, I can’t quite call it a great experience. But, Go doesn’t belong in same genre as these, so, I wouldn’t really want to compare them.
And, wish you a very happy birthday Mr. Kra
May be because of the movies or TV series I watch or the plain old demented thoughts I have, I had a weird dream. A dream in which I inject poison, get scared, ask someone to save me and when they take me to a doctor, I end up making fun of the doctor.
The next day, I had a weirder dream where I’m a cop where I try to catch some bad guys, and of course fail badly when a friend woke me up to ask whether I’m coming to office.
I started analyzing these dreams (yeah, idle brain is devil’s workshop). Apparently the first dream’s meaning is that I desperately want to escape from my life are trying to get over something. And the second one probably mean that I feel I have no choice or I’m scared of change.
Well, I can’t analyze them more other than to think, how on Earth are these guys (who are explaining meaning of dreams) making up meaning for random dreams. I probably don’t like their explanations of my dreams, but I sure do want more dreams. They are the only exciting part of my day. Yeah, regardless how challenging they are, IT Jobs do get tiresome and routine once in a while.
And, regardless how much I hated it, what a show by RCB today to keep their chances alive in the tournament.
Last Sunday, I went to the movie Star Trek - Into Darkness. Even though movie is at 1.50 PM, I told my friends that its at 1.30, so that they would reach theatre earlier. But, even then, one of them managed to call me at 1.00 asking me the time of the show. And I reached at 2.00 as I had to wait for a friend to reach my place and start with him. So many twists just for watching a movie :( But, I wasn’t really upset about missing first 10 minutes as I was lucky enough to see that scene when I went to The Hobbit while at Singapore.
The movie was good and entertaining. Sherlock was brilliant as Khan. Movie felt little bollywoody due to few clichés. Don’t miss the movie, even if you aren’t into Star Trek, of course and unless you have better things to do :) Now, I’m waiting for The Hangover 3 and Man of Steel. Let’s see if they are upto their hype. And also, WTF Sreesanth and others?
