My Unpublished and Incomplete Posts October 12, 2006Posted by PagMax in Just Posts, Miscellaneous.
I just checked that google has released ‘Google Documents’ . It was was not
there last time I played with Google Spreadsheets. My guess is this is part of
Google’s attempt to create a ‘web-based office’. I do not know how long it has
been up there, but I decided to give it a shot. Since I use google as my home page,
it always keeps me signed in, and hence using this feature is relatively
comfortable for me. I am not reviewing this software as I am not good at
it and I am not very opinionated about any software company in general. I am
just testing how its ‘publish to blog’ feature is. (That would probably be the
only feature I would ever use)
To test this, I need to blog about something. So what do I blog about? Lets
I have been inactive as a blogger in a while. Although every weekend, I did
start writing on something (new) but could never complete it enough to publish it. Now
the list I have on my saved draft is so big, that it could be an article itself in itself..
So here is what I have to write as per the title of this article
1. Spoketh the Pope
On Popes ‘insulting’ comments on Mohammed. Outdated, so probably, it wont
see the light of web.
2. Thing called ‘Terrorism’
Just an attempt to define the word ‘Terrorist’. Central idea being, one man’s
terrorist is other man’s freedom fighter. Trying to visit the ideologies of some
recent and past ‘terrorists’ and ‘freedom fighters’.
3. Oscar for Lage Raho Munna Bhai..
I finally watched the movie and I have hell of an opinion about it. Title is
as sarcastic as it can get.
4. To Nuke or Not to Nuke
Always a topic of international debate. Recently Iran and North Korea have
ignored US and UN’s warnings against nuclear program. In past, India and
Pakistan did and we know what were the consequences. Nothing. How important are
these warnings and how important is being nuclear power.
5. To Hang or Not to Hang
This gives me an idea to start a To —- or Not To — Series. This one based
on India’s Supreme court decision to hang Mohammed Afzhal for his involvement in
December 2001 parliament attack and has been topic of debate recently.
6. India’s Race to Space
Started with idea of detailing India’s past and present space program to have
a good database for my own reference, but it needs lot of work to make it worth.
Then just some of my opinion on how justified and how important is our space
and nuclear program, when people in our country are dying because there is not
This is as close as I could get to software review but not all the way. After
using LaTeX, for about an year, I use it for all my documenting needs, be it
reports, letters, presentations, or resume. I have also fumbled with Indic
languages on LaTeX, like Devanagri and Sanskrit. So I thought I should share
some of my experience, counter some common myths associated to TeX because of
which people do not want to go for it.
8. My Yahoo 360 Posts.
This one will not be single post, but just a project I have in mind. I have
always wanted to move my yahoo 360 posts here but with some editing and I have been really lazy about that. Ruhi has been kind enough to comment on some of those and I promised I will respond to those comments when I import it here, so that its better organized. Surely this one is NOT the last in my priority. The order I have here is quite random.
So this was my preview of what I have been trying to write. I make no claims
that all of them would be published, but I would love to hear your opinion
whatever you have on the whole or any topic in particular. It might just help me
to reorganize the priorities.
Oh I need a picture for this blog too to test how it handles figures. Let me
see what I have on my computer which is TOTALLY related to all the topics I have up there…
Yes thats right, NAGMA!
How is she related..??? well just connect the dots..I have no idea which ones. But if Chaos Theory is true, and a butterfly in China could indeed cause a tornado in North America, then I am sure Nagma can do much better!
Thinking about it, this article resembles awfully to one of my earlier ones as
in, trying a blog writer, talking about my upcoming post and putting a
completely unrelated picture. I did not copy my own idea. It just happened!
