How to build your own website

Update: Since WordPress.com updated their pricing in April, I cannot recommend it to everyone anymore. The cost of entry for someone who just wants to try out blogging as a hobby is simply too high. WordPress.com is only for intermediate to professional users now. If all you want is a space to write, if you…More

How I use my Windows PC from anywhere

Sometimes, I want to be able to use my PC when I’m traveling. But carrying that big box isn’t always feasible, nor is it ideal. I have postponed way too many trips just because I won’t be able to use my PC. As a solution, I have looked into setting up remote desktop, but I’m…More

Does Matlab work on M1 MacBooks?

Short answer: Yes. Long answer: It does, but the user experience is subpar. Matlab does work on Apple’s M1 chip machines. There isn’t a native ARM version for it yet, but it runs using Rosetta 2. Rosetta 2 is Apple’s software that allows x86 applications (like Matlab) to run on the M1 ARM chip through…More

What I learned working on a Google project

I recently got to work on a Google project as part of my work at rtCamp. It is an amazing feeling to know that your work is going to be seen by thousands of people all over the world. It’s also kind of scary tbh. The most important thing I learned is that the focus…More

KZ ZST Review

I bought these earphones (or rather IEMs) in July of last year, and since then I’ve bought another pair of headphones that costs over 7x. But I still think this is a good pair of IEMs. They cost me ₹1800 in India, and they cost around $20 in most other countries. For the price, what…More

Chinatown (1974)

Chinatown is set in 1937 LA, where the city is small and in its early stages. The desert is huge and there’s not much in the valley. I love how 1937 LA looks and feels. J.J. Gittes is a private investigator who specializes in exposing cheating spouses. He is hired by Evelyn Mulwray to find…More

Exercise

There is no doubt that exercise plays a major role in keeping us mentally stable and healthy. Well, it sure keeps me mentally stable and healthy. So why do so many of us not exercise? Why can’t we make ourselves spare a few minutes of the day for our body? The first step is the…More

The value of a good break

It’s 1:30 am. I completely forgot about posting. I literally just got back out of bed because I suddenly remembered I have to post, while I was half-asleep and subconsciously dreaming. It’s interesting how a small break of 2 days made me completely forget about my 30-day posting commitment. The 2-day break was a good…More

Detox

Every 3 months or so, I do a “detox” where I just shut everything down and go completely off the grid. No laptop, no computer, no phone, no nothing. A break from any and all kinds of technology. A detox like this helps me clear my head a lot. The break from all those notifications,…More

Dolby Access for Windows

I tried out the Dolby Access app from the Windows store with my headphones (Hifiman HE-400i) today on a colleague’s recommendation. It doesn’t seem to make a lot of difference to the sound for my headphones. When it comes to music there is no difference at all, but for gaming, I do feel there is…More
