You can't believe the number of people who fill this box with crap, just to get the Auto-biographer badge. Me included ;)

Oh, I didn't introduce my self: Here are 8 words that don't describe me.

What? That wasn't descriptive enough? Well, here are some words that might actually help: a self-confessed techno-geek in the making, I adore:-

  • The Internet
  • Google+ xD
  • Open Source
  • StackOverflow
  • All things geeky

in that order. Here are some other links that might help:-


Oh, and don't forget to check out my blog, The Rantosphere. The title is meant to be a portmanteau of Ranting and The Blogosphere.

But don't worry, most of my posts are actually interesting, if a bit on the incoherent rambling side. I blog about:-

  • Tech
  • Math
  • Me, occasionally
  • The internet

and anything else awesome enough to talk about.

You can also view my blog on WordPress, if you like. Both are updated at the same time, courtesy of IFTTT, but Blogger remains my favorite :)

comment Is it proper to use a colon followed immediately by a hyphen?
@way0utwest LOL, I am an Indian (although neither do I live in India, nor is English is a second language) and I didn't know that this wasn't as widely used a punctuation mark as, say, the em dash.

comment What is the correct greeting to use in a formal email addressed to a department/team/company?
The To and Subject headers largely render the salutation and subject lines of actual physical emails obsolete. I would just begin with the first line; although I would probably not come to the point directly.

As a follow up, how would you convey the meaning in French of the latter statement in English?

comment “Curious X”: X is the subject or an object
Thanks. 1) How come there isn't a specific way to address the 2 different meanings? 2) What does 'that' refer to in in your last point?

So American earthquakes are manufactured in America?

@mfg So, that's a case where 'none' has a singular verb, yeah?

comment Is “not at all” still alive and doing well?
@RegDwight Your mention is not completed and not stripped from my comment (as happens when posting comments that mention the owner of the post; they'll automatically notified w/o it too). So how could I notify otherwise? Would I have to find a unicode map and then paste it here?

@RegDwight I'm YatharthROCK from this answer. I see you've merged it with this one. I didn't;t know there was a merge option. Is it just for ES, or is it in the SE engine? I don't see mods on SO (where I'm more active) use it a a lot. They normally just close the post and the answers on the closed post get frozen and lost...
