Got Hacked :S

July 11, 2012 | By Rakhitha | No Comments | Filed in: Tech.

Apparently some self-proclaimed Turkish Muslim hacker hacked my utterly insignificant blog. This blog gets about 30 visitors a day, on a really good day. And I don’t know what the point of hacking this one. Who ever got in, messed up the admin accounts of the blog and changed the home page saying that he/she is Muslim and from Turkey. • Read More »

Neutrino That Beat The Speed of Light…

June 22, 2012 | By Rakhitha | No Comments | Filed in: Tech.

Some news travel very fast. And some don’t.  Even when both news is about the same thing. Sometimes you see news in big bold letters on the front page of multiple news papers. And few days later there is a small piece of writing in an inner page stating that the original news was reported incorrectly, which you never notice. • Read More »

  Until recently my wife was using a Nokia E75. Which is a fine phone when it comes to the specs and the looks but if you drop it, its going to be a few thousand rupees worth of repair. A small drop can break some part of the housing, screen, and ribbon cable. Just to • Read More »

Protect-IP is For Those Who Cannot Adopt to Internet Age

January 20, 2012 | By Rakhitha | 1 Comment | Filed in: Movies, Tech, TV.

For those who use Wikipedia, Facebook, Twitter, Google,  SOPA/PIPA is not news any more. I am not going to describe those again as you can find all about its good, bad, and ugliness by just searching for those two horrible acronyms. Piracy is a problem for any industry I am not  trying to defend it. But this • Read More »

Navigating through Linkoping with a dead GPS phone

November 24, 2011 | By Rakhitha | No Comments | Filed in: Me, Myself & I, Tech, Travel.

Well! Yesterday was my 2nd working day in Linkoping with two other guys. When you come from a place like SL, its bit tough to find your way around. All the names of places sounds same.

October 23, 2011 | By Rakhitha | No Comments | Filed in: Sri Lanka, Tech.

When it comes to buying services and complex products I always prefer buying from a local seller. This makes it easy to communicate and handle any matter that might come up when using the product or service that we buy. But in some cases the typical Sri Lankan customer relationship attitude make it a nightmare. This happened way too often with my • Read More »
