XBOX 360, a new use for my tversity

About a month back I finally had enough cash to buy myself an xbox 360. I even managed to get three games with it which was a bonus, since it would be a while before I could afford more.

TVersity media streaming

An ode to blogging

A friend emailed me today, and told me a grand epic that was a day in his life, and my first response to him was ‘that story is blog-worthy, share it with the world why don’t you?’. It’s become more and more self-evident, that the world is full of linguistically capable, and even exceptional …
