Redbus.in’s long weekend reminder mail
· ☕ 1 min read · ✍️ Sathyajith Bhat
I’ve been a huge fan of redbus.in ever since I first used their site back in 2007. For someone as lazy as me, the idea that I could sit on my ass, check for all available tickets & book them at the comfort of my air-conditioned room was pretty awesome. Didn’t hurt that they had a very nice, clutter free UI. Off late, they have been sending these long-weekend emails.

If you’re a regular reader ( and not reading this in a feed reader) you would have obviously noted a change in appearance of my blog. - It’s been a while since I last refreshed my blog .

Couple weeks ago I’d changed my theme to sodelicious2 and that put me in a spot of bother, as there was a gallery-which showed some pics and each were linked to, and was wondering what to do with them. Manan suggested that I could show off my gadgets, but then again, apart from my P1i, Inspiron 1520 and the HBH DS 970, don’t have anything else. Ashwin came up with the idea of posting blog pics of highest commenters  here, liked it and so I’m gonna implement it!

Was wondering how to find the highest commenters, since I know a little bit of SQL I came up with a short query and here are the “results”:

I get a lot of forwards, I mean a lot. Most of them I just delete, since they aren’t worth keeping. The good ones I forward. This one is the better of the entire lot of forwards that I’ve gotten. It’s old, I know but still good.

I'm on Folding@Home

Yup, I’ve gotten into the Folding@Home brigade. Have always been into the whole distributed computation thingy, with my first experience being SETI@Home way back in 2000, when I first got my net connection. That net connection however was taken down soon(not thanks to my aunt coming down from the other side if the world and using it as an Always ON ADSL connection) meaning that my SETI@Home experiment came to a crashing halt 🙁

Here’s some of them-
