2014 in review

This is pretty embarrassing. I promised to post several posts in last year and now ended up posting two posts in the last year, also none of those posts were actually a post. The worst year ever. Let’s see this year.


The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2014 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

The Louvre Museum has 8.5 million visitors per year. This blog was viewed about 92,000 times in 2014. If it were an exhibit at the Louvre Museum, it would take about 4 days for that many people to see it.

Blogging update

I promised (myself and you all) to post atleast 2 posts per month this year. Which clearly did not work at all. This is because this post is the second post after the “promise post”. What is going on then. The fact is I am not that much busy that I cannot put up a new post on the blog. The fact is that right now there are at least three different things I need to handle and this context switch every day or multiple times a week does not let me actually click the publish button (you all know how hard it is to click that button).

Recently (more than a year now) I was working on a cluster analysis algorithm and previously I was learning while working with some basic feed forward neural networks. Along with this I also keep in touch with *nix system programming and Linux OS kernel architecture (and a bit of Solaris recently). Therefore things are diverse. The job I do in the daytime (for which I get paid) is another domain (though similar to the system programming thing, but not exactly). Therefore the contexts are pretty diverse for me therefore the focus keeps shifting.

There are quite a few good ideas, for which there are drafts written, but as usual, it stays at on the disk. Why I am posting this? I am posting this because I need to press the “Publish” button and try again start the posting.

Therefore let’s see.
