Mailbox.org – Privacy focused email

I transferred my email setup once more. I don’t trust Zoho Mail. I experienced downtime with their service, it seems like there are issues with getting proper support, and privacy concerns as well. I’m now on mailbox.org. They support custom domains, catch-all alias, plus-addressing, pretty much all I want. And they’re good for privacy. Plus…

Vaccinated

I got my first dose of the vaccine today. That’s all. That’s the post.

iPhone 6

Log Update #4. [I thought of writing about something like my 5-year old iPhone 6 that I’m back to now because my main phone is damaged and how after a dirt cheap screen-and-battery replacement this 5-year old thing works like it’s (almost) brand new. But that would just be me desperately trying to find something…

Rocket League

I bought Rocket League on a whim back in 2017, when I saw it in one of Austin Evans’s videos (he’s that tech YouTuber). I remember saying to myself – “Cars playing soccer? Hmm, that sounds fun,” and I bought it. And it turned out to be much better than what I had expected. The…

Gaming

[Yesterday, I transferred the website to another server. I just wrapped up transferring the email setup as well (Say hi at ab(at)ashutoshbhosale.com!).] * It’s 12:47 am. These days I hang around in Discord servers late in the evenings – play a few games, talk to people. I’m not really into gaming… In fact most of…

Mr Oliver’s Diary

[Oof! I’m early today! It’s 10pm. I usually post past 12am so you’re going to see two posts for May 5. I’m afraid this is (finally) going to be a log update. I exercised today after a month-long break. Nothing fancy, just some cardio and weights. Feels great. Exercise is like that go-to Ruskin Bond…

Own your domain

[ I got my domain name (ashutoshbhosale.com) transferred to the new registrar today. The website is still on the old server though. I am planning to migrate it soon.] * If you ever build a website for yourself or get one built for you from someone, please own your domain. You should register (or “buy”)…

In the Heart of the Sea

Log update #1. [Yesterday I decided to post every day for 30 days straight. Today is the second day. I’m not sure what I want to write about, so I’m just calling this post a log update. (You know, like sailors and ship captains keep logs? In the Heart of the Sea is one of…

consume vs create

It’s easy to consume, it’s hard to create. I think about this every day; like it’s an eternal battle going on in my head. So I’m just going to conduct an experiment. I’m going to try and post consistently for 30 days. Let’s see how it goes. If I get really stuck on a day,…

Bosch

I finished watching Season 6 of Bosch yesterday. Unsurprisingly, I loved it. Bosch is one of those shows – a gritty crime drama that hooks you in, that you can’t stop watching until you’ve watched till the end. But it’s also so much more than that. Bosch is set in LA and Hieronymus “Harry” Bosch…
