Setting up STS for github

Was playing with git repositories. There are two contenders : Cloud Foundry and Github. But first on the IDE : since the code I had was Spring-based (MVC and Roo) the choice is Springsource Tool Suite (STS). For Eclipse I was told that for my code, I need to do the extra step of setting up AspectJ. Why the hassle?

Back to git. Cloud Foundry charges $7 per month for two users. Github charges $7 per month for unlimited private repositories and users.

We Too Have A Literary Festival

In a blog post about an event, why do I have to write which sessions I attended or which books I bought? Do readers have to know? I wrote about the sessions and the books, then I thought I should delete the lines. Well, I guess, they give an indication of who I am, so I did keep them.

The event was the Hyderabad Literary Festival held from 18th to 20th January. Due to work I could not go on the first day. The festival was a mix of literary sessions during the day and dance/drama shows in the evenings. The venue, Maulana Azad National Urdu University offered a regal elegance to the festival.

Yable : The Inevitable Bond by Mansi Soni

I attended yet another book launch event today (Sunday, 17-Feb-2013). I’d gone to Crossword at the City Center Mall in Banjara Hills with my family. There was the first reading of The Inevitable Bond, the first book by Mansi Soni.

Most of the attendees were the authoress’s friends, including the anchor. They started the event with a quiz on cricket and literature, giving away 5-star chocolate bars to those who got the answers right.

Lazy Blogger

Little did I realize that I have posted only one blog entry during the new year. Already a month and a half has gone. I am a lazy blogger. I need to be more diligent on blogging. But why blog? I spent something like 12 seconds thinking about it, and then typed the question in Google. From the first page, I selected three links and browsed through them.
