I don’t remember that day very clearly. I guess I was getting ready to go to college. I saw it on TV. I remember going through different emotions. I felt sad for people who lost their lives and their family. I appreciated the police and fire department. According to me they are the real heroes than who killed Osama. Its been ten years. Minimum I could do is to pay my respect to them. Thanks guys. The work you did and dedication you showed is very inspiring.

Manhattan Burning

This incident also changed the world for ever. It gave right to governments all over the world (including India) to do all kind of stupid things in the name of protecting its citizen. Governments have killed more civilians in the name of hunting terrorists. They have spent more money on arms than food for poor. In a way world is more screwed than before. Sadly governments never learnt and they will never learn. However I wish they learn from what has happened in last ten years and will do better for their citizen.

Most of my command line

Posted by Thejesh GN On September - 9 - 2011Comments Off

Most of my life is spent inside a command line. Until last month, you would see me with multiple command lines or multiple tabs. It used to be very confusing and I couldn’t see important ones without multi-monitor setup. When I shifted 20+ inch monitors both at home and work. I wanted to use something that made use of available real estate. That’s when I read about terminator.

Terminator provides a way to arrange terminals in grids on the same screen. So with in the same window I can arrange a lot of terminals the way I want. The picture above should talk by itself. Now my terminal works like a command-line dashboard. Recently I started using it on small screens too. If not anything, at the least I can make use of right side of my screen.

Very recently i shifted from BASH to ZSH.I run Ubuntu on all my personal computing devices.BASH is the default shell on Ubuntu. I had done certain customization to suit my daily requirement. But once I got to know about the Oh-my-zsh, there was no way I could stick to BASH.

oh-my-zsh is zsh on steroids. Its a set of configuration files that attach rockets to your command line. I have modified a bit to suit my use cases but most of the cases are covered by the original project or community submitted plugins. This was something that I was missing for years. Now no more going back to BASH.

In the above picture it shows how my ZSH shows where I am, which machine, which env (virtual/real) and if the current folder is a git/hg repository. How does that look?

Visualizing Constitution of India – 1

Posted by Thejesh GN On August - 31 - 20112 COMMENTS

I am trying to visualize the constitution of India to make it easy for myself. The first one would be of-course a word cloud. Might take a while to load. Click on the image if you want bigger one.
Constitution of India
More readable one
Constitution of India
I downloaded the PDF files from Govt site. I have uploaded the same to Scribd for easy access and sharing.

Looks like our constitution is very egoistic, speaks more about itself than its people/citizen :)

Steve Jobs by macevangelist

Note: I am a Linux guy but Steve Jobs’ story is quite an inspiration.

Right to Fight

Posted by Thejesh GN On August - 25 - 2011Comments Off

Well I have many reasons not to agree with Team Anna. But what I agree is their (or anybody’s) right to fight. Specially if its against a corrupt system. What raged me is tactics used by Government to kill the movement even before it started. And probably that is the reason I support this movement.

Arun Jaitely talks about the same in Rajya Sabha and I completely agree with him.
