Met a couple friends and their familes on a short hike up the Pallavaram hills. Was good catching up after a while! Despite temperature being in the high 80s, the kids had a terrific time.
On the organizing front though, I could have done better. We initially planned to meet at 10:00 but ended up climbing around 11:30 due to travel delays. I wasn’t carrying my first-aid kit and the usual pick-me-up edibles/tailwind. I missed checking on everybody’s general health condition prior to the climb. Had the trail been a few more miles longer, with the rising temps, things could have escalated pretty quickly…
Well, thankfully all went well. Time to get back into those planning shoes and dust off my hike leaders hat.February 28, 2021 17:25
I am so glad I moved out of the Apple ecosystem a few years back. Was good while I was using it and now that I’m off, I don’t really follow or have the urge to upgrade to the next in-thing. It is liberating and I guess – to each his own!
Absolutely love such ‘meandering’ posts! You never know what you’re going to be reading in the next para and the heading can only do justice to a specific section.Time, not Money
Over the last few days, I’ve been meandering through Bert‘s webpage and a few other sites – Such a treasure trove of information on the C-19 vaccine and biology/technology in general. No seriously, dive into these links for some great layman(ish) explanation of DNA, RNA, Vaccines and what not!
- Reverse Engineering the source code of the BioNTech/Pfizer SARS-CoV-2 Vaccine
- No, Really, mRNA Vaccines Are Not Going To Affect Your DNA
- The story of mRNA: From a loose idea to a tool that may help curb Covid
- I Made a Covid-19 Vaccine in my Kitchen and it Worked
Note: These links point to my Wallabag instance. I’d much prefer linking to the original article. However, I find this as a good way to save information which I can access later even if the original source vanishes.DNA, RNA, Vaccines and Humans
This is a terrific intro to all things linux and the terminal. Something I wish I’d come across when I was learning the ropes several years ago. I’d almost forgotten about
Tips, tricks, and convenient bottom-up explanations on Linux & terminals for data scientists or other techies.
I recently had to turn on images in a particular e-mail to read a specific piece of content which I thought was interesting. It’s alarming and rather obscene how images are used in certain newsletters to convey a simple wall of text. Thanks, no thanks – I’m unsubscribing right away!
And while we’re on that topic, I’ve been using postale.io for about a couple months now and absolutely love it! Setting it up was a breeze and the web-front is refreshingly clean!e-mails
