living dangerously

It’s been a while since I last wrote anything in this blog and with the spectre of COVID-19 hovering in the background, I finally found myself having some time to write. The problem however, is even though I have quiet a number of things on my mind, all of them are incoherent, disorganized and generally useless in their current form. The remedy I arrived at – I should start writing them down and force myself to organize them into a somewhat consumable form. It will not be pretty and I expect this to be a rough ride moving forward but I imagine that if I stick it with it for a long time, my writing skills should naturally improve and my thoughts will come across clearer.

Now back to my title subject and this is very much close to home. I really hope everyone gets through COVID-19 safely.

I use ddrescue  primarily for writing disk images into a usb flash drive.

sudo ddrescue -D --force Fedora-Workstation-Live-x86_64-29-1.2.iso /dev/sdx

It has been a while

It has been a while since I last posted something coherent on this blog. Last year has been a blur to me – with the move from Singapore to Ireland and finding my feet at Travelport Digital (formerly MTT).

This year, I should be able to turn things around and hopefully, I can post interesting stuff here. Let’s see.

Note: All posts made before I reclaimed the subdomain have been categorized as an ‘old post’. Please read with caution as they are views of my younger self.

note on broken stuff

Any posts before February 2016 can be broken. now supports previously deleted subdomains so I reclaimed ‘azneita’.

Being the eager beaver that I am, I also imported all the stuff I have lying around and from what I’ve seen so far, some posts may contain broken image links and the like.

As a side-note, it amuses me to no end how my younger self views the world. Time indeed flies.
