Turn based games are always fun. Especially at my age of late 30s. You get to take your own time to make your moves. Play it fast. Play it slow. Enjoy the story. Get invested in the characters and story at your speed.

Ah! Solimo, you sneaky guy!

As a coding tutor and retired full stack developer, I know a thing or two about technology. I also know how much tech companies love their ‘data’. The world’s largest retailer, Amazon, also happens to be amongst the world’s largest tech company.

One more Indian Origin Person trying to avoid paying Platform Fees

As always, I mention again, that I have been freelancing full time for almost 10 years now. In the last 10 years, perhaps, 80 % of my income has been billed in American dollars or Euros or Australian dollars, depending on where my clients are based.

I almost missed this game when it was first announced for the Apple Arcade. As I type this note, I am on the move and away from my Xbox One as well as my RTX 3060 gaming PC. …


Without Momoa this show is unwatchable. source

As I finally wrapped up watching the final episode of Season 1, I was, relieved that, yes, it is the final episode. Jason Momoa and my general curiosity about post apocalyptic science fiction stories were the only reasons that kept me going. …


its kind of pretty. image source available on my behance profile

Last year, around this time. Yes. It was August. I met a student on UpWork. He was looking for a JavaScript tutor. I told him that I am a mediocre but ‘guy who can hack his way through any type of coding’ tutor who can guide him.

He agreed. We…
