30 Down, 10 To Go

As the deadline to the Software-to-Firmware contest approaches, I am among the top three to make a cool $1000. I have lost about 30 pounds (16% of my original weight). I hope to lose another 10, to finish at the top.

OK, I said cool thousand bucks; not easy thousand bucks. ;-- )

Size Matters

While building Kamat's Potpourri, I optimize the pictures for fast downloads even on dial-up net connections, and to be visible even on smaller computer screens.

But some pictures are better seen in bigger sizes, because they contain complex visual details.

Hence I have opened a separate section on Large Format Pictures.

I've also added lots of new contents.

SimplyBlog Update

Tax Day Notes

Many people consider April 15th as the day the year begins, because they think all the money they earn till April 15th goes away as tax -- depending on your tax bracket, it would vary I guess... but I do get the point.
