Pinned toot

Each language (verbal or programming) brings a set of vocabulary and culture along with it. I always admired every languages because of the culture associated with each.

But, language also controls our thoughts! It was a relevation for me after reading 1984 that our thoughts are limited by the set of words (vocabulary) we can use and less vocabulary means less freedom of thought!

Quite an eye opener, 1984!

Finally finished "Why I am a Hindu" by Shashi Tharoor. I would have recommended that book, but after completing the last 2 chapters, I changed my mind.

The book sure illustrates some interesting facts about Hinduism and Hindutatva, but gets quite repetitive and a bit biased in last 2 chapters. Also, simplicity is one thing it lacks.

This book, by far took the longest time to complete ever (2 Month).

And since I am not much of Non-fiction reader, next in line, "1984" by George Orwell :)

How do you people manage twitter and mastodon? Using cross poster or toot and tweet on both platforms? Please help me

It's been a month working with SFLC.in after resigning from my former job. Never imagined that I would be learning Javascript and React JS ever in my life untill now.

Desperate times! xP

Completed IBM challenge part 2. I love the resources and the guide provided this year for teaching the basics of mainframe.

When I listen to cybersec podcasts I realize many things:
1. Don't fucking use windows for any reason whatsoever.
2. Don't fucking use any other Microsoft product for any reason whatsoever
3. Linux isn't the most secure but it's the most pragmatic. And linux very rarely has OS level NSA grade baked in spyware, much unlike windows. Use OpenBSD if you're really worried or FreeBSD if you're just moderately worried
4. Encrypt your shit
5. Encrypt your shit (be really sure)
6. Don't allow any boxes you don't absolute control over on your network (ie windows machines and your little sister's tablet full of adware)

Thanks for coming to my ted talk
