Earlier i used to write on a local wordpress blog named Viscko.
Due to some problem in accessing, i had to unistall wamp.
Yesterday i re-installed WP locally and imported viscko’s posts from sql dump.
Here is an article from that blog:
Another week has evaporated like a camphor cube.Lots of things had to happen, a lot has happened and a lot has not happened.Lots of things is a vagueness which engulfs specifications and vast differences in motives which each of these possess.Which is a reason due to which I feel at times that i have not reached anywhere, that i am still where i started.It is not a good feeling.The reason is clear: not being focused. It is like forces acting on a single point in all directions, therefor making for net zero force.
Focus that is needed.It will bring clarity alongside.
Or lets start with clarity of purpose it will bring Focus alongside.
Yes I know camphor sublimes not evaporate but that is what i had written then.
If you have ever burnt a camphor cube, you will know how fast it burns but while burning it produces brilliant falmes, way hotter than the cold white cube it used to be.
The point i am trying to make sublimation of camphor and fleeting of time is analogous.
Time is going to sublime anyway, so why not focus and produce flame!

Today i thought of giving my blog a makeover by changing themes.
I was about to start browsing when i noticed “widgets” and started browsing through the available widgets.I tried all of them one by one was pretty impressed by WordPress’s features.
It is quite straightforward to add widgets to your WP blog you go to [yourBlogName].wordpress.com/wp-admin/widgets.php.
You can see the description of widgets below their name.Drag and drop them in the sidebar saying “sidebar1”. Customise the widget and click Save. Repeat this for all your desired widgets. You can change their order by picking up and arranging them.
Today i logged on to twitter after long time.
Though i don’t use twitter much, i follow many people (about 100) none of them are from my friend circle.
I could see many tweets by a few people especially @Ladysaying.
I have this idea of finding how many tweets a particular person has made during last 24 hours for each of the person i am following.
Heading to dev.twitter.com.
Set up an application named Tweetlys; Twitter does not allow Twitter to be part of application name.
Generated Oauth tokens and secrets.
Using boilerplate code for getting data.
Succeded in getting my live stream working on number of tweets that i get.
to get the stream.Optional parameters may include efficient retrieval methods.
#issue limiting / fetching the tweets upto 24 hours.
Finding the user data is quite simple, set up two dictionaries for storing user information based on the userid.
increment the value in the dicitonary if find the user id second time.
Will set up gui tommorow.
Here is the list of last 400 tweets
It is working good for an overnight project.
Here are the results of my analysis.
The following are list of [userid, tweet count,display name,,link] sorted by number of tweet counts
It is impossible to live without failing at something, unless you live so cautiously that you might has well not have lived at all, in which case you have failed by default.”
Joanne Kathleen Rowling
Making decisions is a hard job for everyone, but we have to.
Delaying decision making is at the root of most of the procrastination generated in this world. There are many times when we have a lot to do and we have to choose one to start with.
So we make a list of all the todos and start choosing process. Thinking, evaluating, judging, masticating, maybe over-thinking, thinking about something else, and something else, someone else.. browsing SNS,chatting, stalking…..
And when we come out of that cycle due to slammed door or alarm clock..poof..times up!
We end up not doing anything, which is catastrophic, as JK Rowling above describes it you have failed by default.
Here is my two cents to solve this problem:
Its better to start with something which is independent of other tasks and get started.
By the time you are midway and are worrying about something other on your list ask yourself :
Can it wait till completion of the current job?
If No : Can the current job be paused? if No, then continue with your current job till it reaches a position where it can be paused.Then start with the other one.
If Yes: Continue with what you are doing. If it is difficult force yourself to do it, you are building your concentration muscles.
Starting something will keep you away from the above mental-cycle initially, but you will have to constantly fight the urge to switch between tasks.With practice it wont bother you.
Sometime there is a temptation to multitask. Multitasking is not for humans due to overhead of switching time.Please avoid it.
Crossing out items from a todo list is very satisfying experience. If you have not done it lately, try it and let me know how it went.
On a different note that is somewhat similar to how our laptops/mobiles CPU schedules tasks to perform.
Beautiful is better than ugly. Explicit is better than implicit. Simple is better than complex. Complex is better than complicated. Flat is better than nested. Sparse is better than dense. Readability counts. Special cases aren’t special enough to break the rules. Although practicality beats purity. Errors should never pass silently. Unless explicitly silenced. In the face of ambiguity, refuse the temptation to guess. There should be one– and preferably only one –obvious way to do Although that way may not be obvious at first unless you’re Dutch Now is better than never. Although never is often better than *right* now. If the implementation is hard to explain, it’s a bad idea. If the implementation is easy to explain, it may be a good idea.
Namespaces are one honking great idea — let’s do more of those!
“When things break, it’s not the actual breaking that prevents them from getting back together again. it’s because a little piece gets lost — the two remaining ends couldn’t fit together even if they wanted to. The whole shape has changed.” – David Levithan
If you have learnt how friction takes place in real life physics, then you will agree more with David Levithan. Molecules come together make bonds: weak or strong and then due to some external force they have to break; off. It happens all the time, even when you where scrolling your fingeres on the touchpad or moved the mouse, and your fingers have lost a few atoms…
When applying this wisdom to culture you will find that the same happens with people. People enter your social circle, a bond forms, strengthens with time and then one day it has to break due to some force. The force could be external or internal. But the breaking is ineluctable. Even lifelong relations are broken in the face of death. But this separation also ensures that some part of us , conscious or subconscious , has been affected by them.Same happens with the other person. The whole shape has changed. But unlike things people can again come together and they might fit in snugly.
Unlike the above two ,Political Organisations are ready to defy all the rules at any time. They can make alliance. They can break alliance.They can do it over and over again.
PS: this might come as somewhat incoherent but i have allowed myself to type directly.
Cherish it more than anything, because it is a great opportunity for you. An opportunity to enjoy with senses, to create with senses, and even go beyond senses. Be courageous, cross the limits, shed the baggage of knowing too much. You are larger than any situation. You are too innocent for any sort of guilt. Let them go. Let them or force them to go. Never whine.Never. Believe in your greatness. Be light and become the light.
Going beyond senses is something i have only heard of. I would like to go beyond it.
Transcend the situations and live. Let us love life.
