A moment with FreeCAD

It's the one program that I always installed with any Linux distribution. Because of the word CAD and because I am a Civil Engineer (first and foremost). It's really where my two passions collide, the opensource passion and engineering passion. It also has been the program I used very rarely.

Politics. The malignant cancer of this age in this nation. Sit down for an interview and talk about politics. Write an essay and talk about politics. Have a coffee and talk about politics. Go on a date and talk about politics. Watch your team play and talk about politics. Go to work and talk about politics. Go shopping and talk about politics. Go to Friday prayers and hear about politics. Turn on the tv and hear about politics. Turn on the computer and read about politics. Visit your parents and get updated on politics.
Talk about nasheed. Talk about adeeb. Taking about nihan. Talk about Maria. Talk about Eva. Talk about yameen. Talk about imran. Talk about gasim. Gossip gossip gossip. Talk about politics
Think about the bullshit that's festering from your head. Hear it come out of your mouth. Lie down on your bed and dream about politics.
That's all there is to maldives now. Politics

Dark days ahead

It's that time of the year again. Sipping a coffee, listening to some music, pondering life and all of its mysteries all the while wondering what makes a good blog post. It's been so long since I written anything, let alone anything good.

With no specific idea, no specific target and audience I'm left to do nothing but rant and bring out the philosophical ideas that I have decided not to do anymore, at least not here on this blog.

It looks like days like these are going to be a lot more common soon. Even with a positive outlook at life that I normally tend to have, I know that this is the beginning. God willing it will not last too long.

Lazy photoshop by NIVEA

Was having lunch when outside, on a bill board I spotted this.
Original and uneditted
Thought I would hunt down a version of the original image and share, with some captions.
10x fairer skin and whiter teeth in 10 days!

A (linux) wallpaper

A wallpaper I made in my spare time. The box represents a package manager common in linux distributions. Although I call it a Linux wallpaper, it doesn't have the usual symbolism commonly referred to in the Linux world. No penguins, no logos, no Microsoft bashing.
