Through the trees

Delhi finally got some much needed showers, and boy am I glad about it. This photo though was shot on my way to Kotdwar from Haridwar, when the sun was right above our heads, and we'd got tired of driving in the heat and could only dream of rain.

Wonderful shot! Clarity is amazing. Nice not only to see the greenery of the tress but also the 'flat' clean road. Good to hear that Delhi has been recieving some blessings from above ;)

Yup, good to get blessings from above but even better to get good comments :D.
I agree the road is nice but why the quotes on the 'flat'? Is it because its missing the usual share of holes found on Indian roads?

Rashmi said.. Reply

You hit the nail right on the head! It's just that Indian roads with pot-holes is so common that we come to appreciate such level ones. Though that fact is not very flattering.

How long did it take you to write the php for this blog? Or is it based on an existing script?

Rungta said.. Reply

It isn't based on any existing script. Since this was my first php venture, it took me quite some time getting started (most of which was wasted on installing php, mysql, and phpmyadmin). Writing the working script for blogging took me 5-10 3 hour night shifts. Howevert, the complete site as you see it now took much longer. That is if I include the time it took me to figure out and master the image functions for getting the EXIF data, image size and other image specific things and debugging. On the whole, I'd say 40% time was spent on learning php, 20% on actual coding and 40% on debugging.

Regarding OSX86. The startup time that I talked about in my blog was not for 10.4.1 but 10.4.6. The first time it starts up it always takes more time, and now with a little bit of Maxxuss's help I've reduced the startup time to about 20 seconds.
