Weather is never going to be better

Here I am, sitting in my favourite chair at my apartment, working on my computer very remotely, listening to my favourite music and sipping hot coffee in my favourite mug.

It is cold in here. I can literally feel my cold feet. This outskirt of Bengaluru is so open space that let the wind blow freely. Trees nearby make the weather cooler than inside the city.

Because, I want it that way.

Its after midnight. 1:40 AM. Outside dogs are barking and crows are crowing. Cold weather chilling out post a heavy rain. I am hungry, feeling sleepy, sitting on my sofa, laptop on my lap and going through some blog posts. Cannot read all of them right now. As I said, I am feeling very sleepy. But something kept me up while reading some of them and then sparked a tiny motivation to write something on my own blog.

More to read in less time.

[Image: Books in a book shelf]

There are so many things to read and many thoughts to write. When I come back to house after a long day, look at the books and magazines perfectly arranged vertically in a horizontal row in the book shelf, I want to forget everything else and just dive into them and swim through pages for hours. Unfortunately, I cannot. I just cannot forget about work, food, health, sleeping, cleaning, washing, taking garbage out,… ufff!! Give me a break, please! There are countless other things to take care of.

Has blogging became limited only for loyal bloggers?

10 years back, it was a time when blogging was at it’s hype. Everyone wanted to create blog and invite others to read it. Following and commenting on blogs was fun. Now, social networks platforms are at the hype. Today, different types of new social network services are being emerged in very short time. Well, I think, in a way, that actually helped all of the true blogging communities (ignoring organisational blogs and those for marketing purpose). At least now people do not create blogs and leave them to rotten anymore with just one welcome post.

A ‘Fast Track to Blogging’ started it all

I was doing B.Com. along with another animation and multi-media course. I was very much excited about all interesting stuffs about computers. I used to visit some of internet cafes available at the time in my local town to learn more things on internet and about internet itself. But even that was limited because after coming back to home I could not learn more. And I had to wait until I could go next time.

Moving in to a new web address

I was using my web address krsh.in for quite some time. It was a little difficult for others to understand when had to spell it. They always wondered about an ‘i’ in the address. I had to confirm twice that it was not a mistake.

Anyway, it is going to be expired soon. So this time instead of renewing it, I decided to change the web address. I wanted it to be more representation of my name without any missing alphabet. And by this time the .dev domain has been available for the public. So I tried with krish.dev and also krish.in. But both have already been taken and no longer available. Now I had to come up with some “creative” name. After some thoughts and a few options, I decided to go with iamkrish.dev.

Accelerate mouse wheel scrolling in Firefox

Steps:

  1. In the address bar type about:config and press enter.
  2. Accept the risk involved while making changes.
  3. Search for mousewheel.acceleration.start
  4. By default its value should be -1 which indicates the option is disabled. To enable, change its value to 0 by double-clicking on it.

Why?

Comparing to Google Chrome, Firefox has very slow scrolling speed for web pages. It is smoother than Chrome but not just fast enough. So I usually go for the scroll bar, which needs little more effort. Move the cursor to grab that scroll stick and drag the mouse up & down.

Expanding the Youniverse

The only way to know how strong you are is to keep testing your limits. – Jor El

You know that our universe, which contains our earth, sun, other stars, planets surrounding these stars, our Milky Way galaxy, other galaxies, everything you name it; is expanding. Thanks to Georges Lemaître and Edwin Hubble who figured out about the expansion.

What does it mean? It means, our earth along with its residents, actually floating and moving, within its own galaxy, through the very basic fabric of the universe. Can you imagine? We are not staying still in one position. WE ARE MOVING! Literally through space and time. If you look at the whole picture, everything is moving. And that is how the universe works.

Not convinced yourself for some workout yet!

Why just following a diet plan (I know it’s dreadful) is not enough to lose weight?

Why workout is more important?

What does it really mean to lose weight? Where does it go anyway?

When you think about it, it seems, well, it might get turned into a sweat so let’s stay in a very hot room or put a sauna belt around the waist. It gets out when you urinate so let’s drink more water and keep going to the restroom. Or you might think it gets converted into energy so let my stomach do the job when I watch my favourite series.

Now spend just 30 mins and watch this 5 years old TEDx Talks video to understand that spending some time for workout can help more, rather than just following a diet plan or a belt.

In the mathematics of weight loss, Ruben Meerman, with the help of some Chemistry, explains how exactly doing exercise helps you to lose weight.

And don’t worry, it does not affect the global warming.
