Folding@Home(aka FAH) is a distributed computing project. To quote from their website,
FAH is a distributed computing project for simulating protein dynamics, including the process of protein folding and the movements of proteins implicated in a variety of diseases. Folding@Home involves you donating your spare computing power by running a small client on your computer. The client then contacts the Folding@Home Work Assignment server, gets some workunits and runs them, You can choose to have it run when only when your system is idle, or have it run all the time.
At Adobe I/O, we’re working on building a serverless platform that allows you deploy custom code to respond to events and execute functions. Adobe I/O Runtime lets developers run code on top of the Adobe Cloud Platform, giving access to the content and data you have stored with Adobe. Adobe I/O Runtime is built on top of Apache OpenWhisk, an open source serverless platform that leverages containers as the means of deploying code (something I’ve written about in my book, Practical Docker with Python). With custom code, however, comes the need for tighter security.
Containers have almost become the ubiquitous…
VR and me go like chalk and cheese — ever since a kid, I’ve had motion sickness which limited me from playing most FPS games and my last attempt at VR(at IGX 2016) was a disaster — I barely could withstand 30 seconds of VR. Granted the game selection was bad — for me anyway (Driveclub on PSVR) — still I didn’t expect that bad of a reaction.
With that bit of context, the reactions that flew in when I told the folks that I(well Jo, my wife, to be more precise) bought the Rift was expected.
So I just got my passport reissued this week and I’m amazed how far things have come. I got my passport done close to a decade back when I had to fly to Austin. Back then getting a passport done was a pain — I had applied from Mangalore in Tatkal and since Mangalore didn’t have a tatkal processing system, it was forwarded to the Bangalore passport centre. I still vividly remember the day I visited — I stood in queue at 8am (was told to go early because the counter was open only till 12pm), stood there for hours…
Few months ago for our second wedding Anniversary, after much discussions on what to get for each other — we decided to get a PlayStation 4. This was a rather surprising decision considering

Few weeks ago, Jo & me went on a 11-day vacation from starting from Srinagar heading south-west bound towards Manali via Kargil, Leh, Nubra Valley and Jispa. During this 11-day visit, we had a blast, met bunch of great folks, visited some breathtaking places and ran into wee bit of trouble. And since it’s been awhile since I posted here, decided to do a travelogue.
So, we booked a tour via A Lifetime Trip. To be honest, I didn’t do much of the research on the tour operators — my college friend Prasad & his wife…
