My name is Arun. This site derives its name from a quote in Charles Darwin's The Descent Of Man. Here is the quote in full:
We must, however, acknowledge, as it seems to me, that man with all his noble qualities, with sympathy which feels for the most debased, with benevolence which extends not only to other men but to the humblest living creature, with his god-like intellect which has penetrated into the movements and constitution of the solar system -- with all these exalted powers -- Man still bears in his bodily frame the indelible stamp of his lowly origin.
I love the Linux Operating System, and am an avid reader (mostly general science, science-fiction, etc). I am an occasional gamer and I'm also trying to learn some programming in the side. So that is probably the kind of stuff that I will write about in this site.
These therefore are the main sections that are (or are planned to be) frequently updated:
- Linux - quick notes, tips and tricks. SSHTips, CLIStuff, GitStuff, Systemdstuff and more.
- Books - book reviews, favourites. Reviews of quarantine, PaleFire, and more.
- Gaming - game reviews, favourites. Read about my Nintendo3DS and more.
- donate - Some places I donate to occasionally.
Some of the more ephemeral stuff will show up in the blog:
