Misc. Notes Durable Link to this BLOG
Congratulations to Sathya and his team at Informatics on completing 25 years in content and journals business.

Yahoo: There's news that USA might open a new consulate in Bangalore or Hyderabad.

I have been playing with the Google Sitemap. The tool they provide ran like a charm, but it listed a lot of private stuff (it uses Unix's WALK, so even if you do not have a link to a file, it might get indexed by Google). You know stuff that you should have deleted from the webserver a long time ago. Remember the time your buddy couldn't open that spreadsheet so you made a HTML page for him? or the resume you uploaded to apply for a job a long time ago. or the source code you kept hidden so you could access it from a client site. Stuff like that.

I chickened out.

Perhaps it is best for me to write a program to adhere to the Sitemap protocol...

I did one of the 43 things I wanted to do before I die.

I strung my own racquet!

It was not easy, and I have developed a new respect for Lisa who strings my racquets every week (I seem to break them often, and I am not even a power player. I tried the Big Bangers. It lasted 11 days instead of 7, but cost three times as much).

Stringing a Tennis Racquet

Amma (via telephone) commenting on Chronology of Kamat Photo Archive, "no ordinary man can amass such a huge photographic collection, and he did it without having good equipment."

This is how I surf the web. Turns out creating your own start page beats all portals, back-flipping, personalized corporate pages, and book-marking tools.
