I was tempted to title this post “Hello, World”, but decided it was too much of a cliché to attract anyone’s attention. Hence the TV show-inspired “Pilot” (also, I’d already used the same title for the first post on my other blog).

This blog is meant to help me improve my programming skills (and hopefully others’ too), because I’ve noticed that writing makes me understand and remember things better. Many a times I read about some important programming guideline, or some obscure – but occasionally extremely useful – Emacs command, or some new technology. But sooner or later I end up forgetting it. And when I need it, I have to go scrambling all over the Web again. I’ve decided it’s just better to write down the good stuff instead. There’s a psychological reason too: I gain confidence at a topic when I note it down and successfully explain it to others.

Perhaps you’d like to know more about me?
