I realized yesterday that Ajay learns new things faster if there is no audience. I guess he got this from me. We went to the pool last evening, and there was no one else there. Just me and him. And he got braver and braver. He was throwing his goggles in the pool, at 4′ depth and would wait for it to sink. Then he’d jump in and dive down to go retrieve it. I saw him do this a few times and then suggested maybe he should try the 5′ depth. He gave me the look – “daddy are you trying to make me a fool of myself”. I encouraged a little and he gave it a try.

Of course he came out back with the goggles in his hand and a smirk on his face. So he did this a few times. And then he noticed something in the pool. He dived and came back with a hairpin. I was like “wow”.

So register a (free) DDNS subdomain at DynDNS.org.
Then setup your OpenDNS service (not DynDNS!) at http://www.dnsomatic.com/
Then setup your DynDNS.org and DNS-O-Matic service at http://dnsalloc.appspot.com/

How’s this supposed to work?
1. Your router updates your DynDNS.org subdomain.
2. DNS allocator gets the new IP address from your DynDNS.org host and updates DNS-O-Matic.
3. DNS-O-Matic then updates your OpenDNS network (and possibly more DDNS services).

I was just going through my computer, backing up some important data and stuff. And then just came across my movie backup folder. I have some great movies backed up here. My personal favorites that I love to watch again. Once you have kids, you will know that backing up your movies is a smart thing to do. :-)

Anyways, I came across some good titles that I wanted to watch again later on today, and 2 of them were Saving Private Ryan and Enemy at the Gates. Which for some weird reason, got me thinking about “Brave” people.

And from the brave people, my thoughts lead to whether they are good to have around or not? See I have been doing a lot of critical thinking lately.

As I usually don’t like to write too much here on the computer, I just wanted to mention, and get your comments on the following statement:

What if there were absolutely no brave people at all on this planet. Not even a single soul. Everybody was timid, and scared of getting hurt. If this was the case, do you think we would have had any wars in our history? People killing people in the name of religion, nation, beliefs etc. Aggressors and defenders? Rulers and liberators? Let’s just think about this for a little while, and share our comments.

The dog ate my homework excuse has been going around for a while. But, how about the dog ate my sock! A couple of days ago I was hanging out with our family dog Chief, and our buddy Jimmy. Now chief is a smart dog. Sometimes even smarter than some of the people I have come across in my life.

I was proudly demonstrating the ability of Chief to learn new tricks in exchange for a little praise and the special “under the neck” rub to die for. So, as he already knew how to “go get it”, sit, lay down etc., I figured it’s time to teach him how to “drop it” after he goes and “gets it”.

Within 10 minutes he was doing it. Yes, he was getting the sock and then was dropping it. So, Jim decided he wants to be a participant as well, and not just be the audience. He gets hold of the sock, throws it, asks Chief to go get it. All went well, until he asked Chief to “drop it”.

The moment of truth came, and Chief, still not sure of why, instead of dropping the sock, completely and immediately swallowed it!! Yup, the sock went down the throat of the 90 lb monster, leaving me wondering why in the world did he do it.

Almost 3 days, and I still can’t figure out why he decided to swallow it. What was going on his big head? Any ideas or explanations are welcome.

I can’t believe this! And these are the money professionals and supposed to be smart about it! Or is it something else? Maybe they are smart, just too smart and there is something that we cant see through.

Well, it’s been many days now that I have been wanting to start off blogging. Precisely, I wanted to start writing a journal, a more private writing thing, but then also be able to publish some of the things from my journal for the public; my views and opinions etc. So, today, I am trying Windows Live Writer. I think it allows to save local drafts, which means, not publishing them on the internet, and then publishing to most blogging services.

I have been thinking about this blogging thing for a while now. And came to the conclusion, that this is a great thing for social networking and of the kind. But a bad thing in the hands of marketing departments of for profit companies. You see, the blog can be, and is used in unlimited number of ways. Like wordpress.com says, it is limitless.

Example: So there is this travel agency company. The name would be 2ndcity.in (based out of India). So, they need to attract prospective customers who search the internet for  travel, airplane etc. related keywords. So, 2ndcity decides that alongwith their website, they will have a blog, and hire a couple of rookie/cheap wanna be journalists. They journalist’s job description is to write news articles from around the world related to the “keywords” i.e. airplanes, aircraft, aviation etc. May not have anything to do with travel agency business, but control and repeatedly use the keywords in the articles. As the focus is on the keywords, and the goal is traffic, the authenticity of the news – who cares. So, this journalist, let’s give him a cool name, echo yankee, writes all night about the “keywords” and thinks he is a journalist. Incorrect news, misleading news, who cares. Good for society? Not on the list of goals. Write anything spicy, about the keywords, and drive the traffic to the travel agency site. That is it.

Now the businesses that echo yankee writes about, mostly against, as the news items have to be spicy (just like tabloids, get the picture) get hurt and can’t do much about it either. As one, they may not be blog savvy and not understand the tremendous power it carries, and two, may not have the resources to counter it. Echo Yankee means any harm to these businesses? Probably not. Does he? Harm them? Absolutely he does. Day in and day out. For what? A paycheck, loyalty towards his employer, meet the goals of driving traffic. etc.

And, I am thinking, now that I understand this power, and can tame it, and use and abuse it. Should I?

______________________________________________

Well, I am editing this blog of mine, as I just came across this blog posting by Christine Coppa, on something similar to what I wrote. You can read it here.

Hello World. So here am I, eventually, starting to write my blog. I am not even sure about what and how I am going to be writing here, but i guess we all have to start somewhere. I have another blog on blogger/blogspot in this smiliar condition as well. Not sure which one I’ll be using promariy, but again, we’ll see in time. For now, I will start writing and then fugure out the rest later on. WordPress does have some unique features which I find better than blogger, but then, blogger has some features which I don’t see here on wordpress, at least not for free. Stay tuned for more, as I learn more, I’ll blog more.
