I’ve been using Firefox for a few months now and I’m totally in love with it! What I like best about it is all the cool plugins you can use – and you don’t need to go out of your browser to do anything online. Fireftp and DTA – two of the plugins I use the most – have made me junk my FTP software and download software.
This IS the future of the browser!
Last night, I was in Besant Nagar, trying to get out money from the ATM. I had parked my Scooty outside the ATM and when I got back, I found a policeman trying to “c lamp” it. Apparently it was a no parking zone and I had to pay a fine. The funny thing was, the fine was only fifty rupees. But I had to pay a hundred more rupees as “unc lamping charges,” in spite of the fact that my vehicle had not been c lamped at all! Anyway, in commemoration of my first fine since I got a licence 14 years ago, here are the receipts and the charge sheet!
Vidya and I travelled to Pudukottai on 27 and 28 November 2004. This was a really unexpected trip, and came up when Kandha told us he was driving down to Karaikudi and asked us if we would like to accompany him...

A few days back, I saw a boy wearing a t-shirt which said “I am NOT a dude with a cool attitude.” I thought this was cool, though the chap wearing it did not look like he could read English.
