Hello! I am coder by profession, who loves to read & write to keep myself inspired. I have been a blogger for more than 12 years, but lost touch with writing when Twitter was at it’s peak. May be I lost love for my words.
Anyway recently IndieWeb got my love for the technology and also writing back. So been working on a lot many Indie projects & writing my heart out at my blog since then. My only hope is this place does not kill my drive for reading, writing and coding; rather inspires it.
I’ve removed all the custom fonts, something that I’ve been extremely picky about, from my site now. This has drastically improved the load times across the pages, at times loading within a second. Sure it does lose the personality, but I’m ecstatic with the benefits. https://amitgawande.com

Just a few pages in and I was excited to read Factfullness by Hans Rosling. Give the times we are living in today, whoever claims that “the world, for all its imperfections, is in a much better state than we might think” has my attention. https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/34890015-factfulness
I finished reading Endless Night by Agatha Christie and am not at all impressed. This review might contain spoilers, but I can’t help I have to rant.
Nah, I am not letting the ending influence the overall rating for the book again. It is easy to get wowed by the intelligent ending and ... https://www.amitgawande.com/2021/02/27/i-finished-reading.html
Sometimes I get afraid of tapping that YouTube app. It just drains too much of my time - even with all my efforts to make the service a lot less addictive. I fear this service even more than any social media app out there. I know I will start with something interesting, but will even... https://www.amitgawande.com/2021/02/24/sometimes-i-get.html
I only recently came across this wonderful Netflix show Manhunt: Unabomber. Boy, it was brilliant - No idea how it missed my radar. Such a thrilling story narrated in an engrossing manner. Masterful, intelligent and affecting. https://www.rottentomatoes.com/tv/manhunt/s01
Dropbox can also store your passwords now with their password manager - and it’s built into their Plus and Professional plans. This could be a good option for those affected by the LastPass change to their Free plan.
Not for me though - am not (yet) a paying Dropbox customer. I don’t k... https://www.amitgawande.com/2021/02/23/dropbox-can-also.html
If Apple wishes to continue selling iPhone XR, I hope it refreshes the internals along with SE. I can no longer go back to such a small screen (am not talking about the body size). But an XR with the internals of SE would really interest me. https://amitgawande.com/2020/11/06/i-had-no.html
