What’s keeping me busy

Of course it is CInk. 😛 Ever since I started working on it, my world has now, kind-of wrapped around it. Oh, I am really fatigued now. Phew! But anyway, why this post? I surely haven’t posted this to rant about myself. It is of course CInk and it is turning out to be quite […]

New place, new face

As I reported before, I have moved to “cloud” based hosting from eApps. Moving to “cloud” was no easy task, and more than once it knocked the lights out of me. After many tussle and numerous tickets, rackets, hair uprooting exercises and under the hood tweaking, I guess now I can rest easy. To celebrate […]

Tribute to René Magritte

Bhaag DK bhaag

Have you used Google’s new Search By Image?

I tired this. Don’t expect much though. It seems to be decent for searching places, art pictures (which means it can search abstract patterns, symbols etc.) and creatures. For everything this else it simply seems to match images’ histograms. Anyway this is not bad and quite useful. The google UI too is cool and supports […]
