Net neutrality

I was shocked to find that DOT (Department of Technology, India) has blocked major file sharing websites. This clearly is a failure of democracy in india. This proves either india does not care about Internet neutrality or India does not have infra to take right action.

Thank god I live in India. These efforts are not very effective. But they are philosophically wrong. What is this? school! where they police what we will do on internet.

Some will say this is only way to counter piracy, but I feel this is primitive and caveman’s way of moderating a civilized society. What do you say.

Tmux – Gnu Screen alternative

I am a very old user of Gnu Screen, actually I am one of those who will suggest noobs to use these better tools for servers. Gnu Screen is awesome tool. It has helped me of good help always and it will. But It very hard to configure and explore for new possibilities. If a tool is unmaintained for a long time it gets outdated. Recently I found a replacement of my age old tool. The Tmux!

Tmux is really great and very easy to use. Best part is you can set all your old shortcuts here too. 🙂

To install it in mac do

$ brew install tmux

on ubuntu

$ sudo apt-get install tmux

You can put your setting in ~/.tmux.conf

# set -g default-terminal "xterm-color"
set -g terminal-overrides 'xterm*:[email protected]:[email protected]'

This should be enough to get you started. Google for Tmux cheat sheet to know popular shortcuts. Here is the one of them. http://cheat.errtheblog.com/s/tmux

Keep doing!

This is a test for the quote post.

This is really a good step to start with, I am really loving this new twenty eleven theme.

WordPress v3.2

I am just trying out this new WordPress version 3.2, It has a awesome full screen editor. It lets you focus on your writing. You can really write in peace with a blank screen. Gives you a great feel. I really liked it. This is by far the best WordPress you can get.
