Once upon a time there was a cute bunny

The bunny was going about its usual exercise of sleeping and eating and sleeping and eating when suddenly it saw some really yummy ice cream.

Little did Bunny know that the ice cream was, in fact, made from radioactive stuff.

After eating the whole lot Bunny felt dizzy. Bunny rushed to the mirror in its house. Bunny was seeing double!

My best buddy and roommate Anup Mohan is celebrating his birthday today. He's a wonderful friend and a great person. Selfless, dedicated and helpful - he has often pulled me out of trouble. Here's to a friend worth dying for - Happy Birthday, Anup :)

Now that we're done with that, let's move on to the celebrations :D

WordPress – Unable to create directory error when uploading images

0 Comments

Unable to create directory<DIRECTORY NAME> . Is its parent directory writable by the server?

This error seem familiar to you? I got this error when trying to upload an image on wordpress. I checked the directory mentioned in the error and it did not exist. It so happened that Dreamhost had moved the my blog to another server. WordPress was trying to save the image to a location that existed in the old server. I went to Settings -> Media Settings -> Uploading Files and then changed the "Store Uploads in this folder" setting to "wp-content/uploads". Before the changed it pointed to the directory in my old server. This change fixed the problems with uploading files.

Waiting for Pirates of the Caribbean 4 : On Stranger Tides

0 Comments

News is that the teaser poster for Pirates of the Caribbean 4 : On Stranger Tides has been released. It was released on twitter by Jerry Bruckheimer ( the producer ).

It will be great to see Capt Jack Sparrow again. Johnny Depp is one of my favourite actors and Jack Sparrow (Capt Jack Sparrow!) is one of his most popular roles. In a big plus, Penélope Cruz is also in the movie.. yayy to that :) The stunningly beautiful and talented actress will surely make a great addition to the movie. Geoff Rush will reprise his role as Capt Barbossa - he was superb in the 3 movies before. Orlando Bloom and Keira Knightly are out - that makes me happy :D In a prominent role, Ian McShane is the famous Blackbeard in this movie. He has a great voice (Tai Lung in Kung Fu Panda - brilliant) and acts well (The Coach in Death Race).

Gore Verbinski will not be directing this movie. Rob Marshall, director of acclaimed movies like Chicago and Memoirs of a Geisha, will be directing this one. It will be interesting to see what changes the new director brings to the series.

Also special is that this movie comes out in 3D. It is the latest fad since Avatar - perhaps this one will stay?

So here's to the movie and here I am with fingers crossed :)

Can anyone translate ആക്രാന്തം ?

4 Comments

I can't find a suitable translation for the malayalam word ആക്രാന്തം ( aakraantham ). The Google translation for the word is not accurate. Or is it one of those words which cannot really be translated to another language?

I would be happy to hear about equivalent words in other languages too :)
