I don't have the hi-res in-the-air pictures yet, but here's me looking cool.

Although apparently +Jim Zemlin was laughing so hard when I did the thumbs-up sign that the camera shake makes that picture a bit blurry. Thanks, Jim.

I wondered if any wilderness would be more desolate than this!
And then I remembered another of the kind – the home I’d left behind...

Incredible #Kashmir

Dear Google Mail Team,

  I've said very nice things about your spam filter in the past, but I'm afraid I am going to have to take it all back. I'm currently going through the spam for the last week, and have gone through about a third of it.

Something you did recently has been an unmitigated disaster. Of the roughly 1000 spam threads I've gone through so far, right now 228 threads were incorrectly marked as spam.

That's not the 0.1% false positive rate you tried to make such a big deal about last week. No. That's over 20% of my spambox being real emails with patches and pull requests.  Almost a quarter!

I don't know how to even describe the level of brokenness in those kinds of spam numbers. There were a few pages of email (I've got it set up so it shows me 50 threads per page) where more than half of the "spam" wasn't.

Quite frankly, that sucks. It's not acceptable. Whatever you started doing a few days ago is completely and utterly broken.

It's actually at the point where I'm noticing missing messages in the email conversations I see, because gmail has been marking emails in the middle of the conversation as spam. Things that people replied to and that contained patches and problem descriptions.

They didn't try to sell me a bigger penis or tell me about how somebody is cheating on me. Really.

You dun goofed. Badly. Get your shit together, because a 20% error rate for spam detection is making your spam filter useless.

[ Edit: looks like it started four days ago. As of July 13, it looks like a big swath of lkml has been marked as spam for me. ]

[ Edit 2: final numbers: out of around 3000 spam threads, I had to mark 1190 threads as "not spam". So the numbers actually got worse: about 30% of my spam-box wasn't actually spam. It started around 1pm on Monday, July 13th. The problem really is that clear, that I can tell pretty much when it started ]

[ Edit 3: it wasn't just patches, and it's not just lkml. There were things like Junio's recent git v2.5.0-rc2 announcement etc. The new gmail spam filter hates any mailing list emails, apparently. In the time I wrote the last note, I got seven more emails marked as spam, two of which weren't. ]

I can give you my loneliness, my darkness, the hunger of my heart, I am trying to bribe you with uncertainty, with danger, with defeat.
Introduction
I once had a meaningless life, nothing bothered me, cared for none, every day seemed awesome & fearless, used to mock Newton's laws & Heisenberg's principle, cried to get everything I wanted, in a way u would have called me blessed, innocent & surely [the?] friend, which I am today as well, but the priorities in my life have changed over time [as Margaret Peters rightly said, Time has a wonderful way of showing us what really matters], fear has slowly found a place in my heart [that of life after death as I haven't made any preparations], though unintentionally I wear a mask [carelessness & co]. I no longer have to cry for getting anything & that makes me sad [u'll understand this provided u have a pretty good sense of humor], as far as friendship is concerned, I am still [the?] good friend but I no longer mock Newton's law in this case [3rd law to be specific]. Heisenberg's principle is also a big thing, but u have to apply it in ua life to understand its beauty. Rest I am an open book, but fortunately encrypted one, you can have a read but you will understand only if you get hold of the decryption key :)

To some up, let me quote Iqbal [a.r]
