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 of Firefox type about:config and press enter.
  2. Accept the risk involved while making changes.
  3. Search for mousewheel.
  4. Look for mousewheel.acceleration.start and to enable it, 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. And I end up scrolling by dragging up the scroll bar which is a little annoying. You have to drag the mouse or finger to grab that scrolling stick. And drag again to scrolling happen.

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.

Devil’s little workshop with self-destruction

Little brother was sitting idle for a long time. Do not remember for how long though. He was there just like a dead. He did not know that his big brother has a new reason to pump around more blood into the system. A joyful reason of love.

But somehow that blood was not making any interest for the little one. He was tired because of the recent past and its unpleasant continuation. He just wanted to sit idle and take the rest.

Me of I

It’s a true fact,
I don’t really act.

If you think about it,
You’ll doubt about it.

You not gonna find,
What lies in my mind.

Sometimes I get mad,
It also makes me sad.

When fate is sad,
It ain’t my bad.

You really know,
how hard I do.

It ain’t any sense,
When you make such a non-sense.

I’m walking in a dream,
In a fire of a stream.

It burning my trees,
taking away the breeze.

All those myths,
Shouting like a thief.

I am the king of my bing.
Else nothing to think.

This is the gift of life,
Live it however you like.

I wonder what my real accent is!

Big Bang theory might not be the theory of everything but The Big Bang Theory is one of the most favourite series of mine. I know some of you, who used to watch it, are not finding it interested any more. But yes, I still love the show.

Rajesh Koothrappali is one of favourite characters. He used to be more shy and needy one, almost like me. But throughout the seasons he has been changing a lot. Now, in new episodes, you can see his hair style is very similar to Kunal Nayyar.
