When I’m on Modafinil vs when I’m not on Modafinil

When I’m on Modafinil

  • I should prepare the strategy for creating great designs
  • I should organize mood boards, and should focus on creating themes and UI kits rather than jumping into design
  • I should investigate why t-engine is faster than vanilla nginx
  • I should find out if anyone else logged into my digital ocean VPS as the root user or not
  • I must find out the optimal way to isolate webpack from node to reduce the compile time
  • I must learn Kannada
  • I’ve heard people who learnt multiple languages had greater IQ
  • P V Narasimha Rao must have been great. He sent Vajpayee as a delegate to represent India once. That’s damn awesome.
  • There should be IQ level indicator in Facebook. You should ignore (or prevented from) engaging in comment-wars with people of lower IQs. I must create a chrome plugin that determines someone’s IQ and warns.

When I’m not on Modafinil

  • I should rather be at home. I focus better at home
  • The chirpy team next to me is very noisy & seems jobless. I can’t work in an environment like this.
  • I need coffee.
  • Enough for the day. Too noisy here. I should rather go home and sleep to get rid of the noise in my head.
  • It’s Wednesday. Because the noise levels are at peak.
  • I don’t know how to file IT returns yet. How’ll I manage a family?
  • The problem with open floor office designs is – you’ve no privacy. Joel Spolsky was right. Nobody wants to work in facebook because of their acre wide open floor office.
  • I need espresso. Double black eye.
  • Why people are so optimistic about their political leader and too cynical about who question the authority in this nation?
  • I’ve no cash. How’ll I manage a family?


Published on April 1, 1999, RFC2549 is an Experimental Protocol for the Internet as found at: https://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc2549 which suggests  using Avian carriers, meaning birds, over other mediums of data transfer and goes into describing the possible implications of it.

This was an amendment to RFC1149, published exactly 9 years before on the same date i.e. on April 1, 1990. Contrary to the former suggestion which involved data delivery only by birds on a small scroll of paper, the modern suggestion suggested sending data over magnetic tapes flown overseas using Concorde’s expedited data delivery, or heavier payloads delivered on Ostriches instead of birds that can fly. More can be explored on the same, ironically, on the internet.

In December 2005, a Gartner published a report on bird flu that concluded “A pandemic wouldn’t affect IT systems directly” – wikipedia

It’s not surprising to see, that both RFCs were filed by the same person, David Waitzman, although from different physical and email addresses, and of course employers.

The intention of this RFC was to create a protocol that would provide high delay, low/high throughput, and low altitude data carrier services. Readers may visit the following links to learn more about the RFC.

“the carriers have an intrinsic collision avoidance system,” a problem that afflicts the transfer of data on crowded networks – cnet

Black Friday Humor

Today, Cards Against Humanity has succeeded in selling nothing to many of its customers and in turn banging 64 grands. But when this customer reported a failure in transaction to its customer support, hilarity ensued.

At the same time, today, Slack went down. And, this gentleman’s question ended up making the official twitter account make a funnier repartee.
