Howdy? I'm Rahul, a teen and a geek.

I use ellipses (...), ampersands (&) and exclamation marks (!). I put my commas after closing quotation marks, because that's what programmers do.

Here's some stuff you might want to know if you are going to use stuff from my website:

Contact

Have an idea for a project? Want to know my thoughts on something? Found a bug in my code? Just wanna chat in general?

Email me at [email protected].

 

Thanks

If you like or appreciate my work, spread the word!

Really wanna give me something? Email me to know where you can send me some chocolate.

Donations are welcome. :)

Or... you could just buy me a couple of flash drives or a Raspberry Pi, that'd be great ;P

 

Sponsorships

As a student, maintaining a presence on the internet and running a free services can be expensive (I don't put advertisements on my stuff). And I could certainly do with some funds for a few projects that I have planned out but cannot work on yet. If you are interested in sponsoring my projects/articles, please send me an email.

 

Freelancing

I sometimes do freelancing work on projects I find interesting. Take a look at my portfolio and send me an email if you wish to work or collaborate with me.

Here's some cool stuff I like, that you might want to check out:

Super User - My go-to site for hardware and software questions. Some amazing content on there. Check out my answers.

WebCite & Archive.fo - Instant web content archival

Talk About IT! - A blog from a fellow Super User

miniProxy - A really cool proxy script that often comes in handy when I want to access blocked resources from restricted networks quickly

Bludit - This blog is powered by (a somewhat modified version of) this CMS.

textfiles.com - lots of fascinating old tech stuff.

GeoCities.ws - really cool GeoCities archive. Lots of amazing retro web content on here.

h4cker.pw - I have no idea why I made this. I guess I intended it to be my version of rickroll or something. Most modern browsers disabling audio autoplay onload kinda ruined it.

tor2web - Browse the TOR network over the clearnet.

instant.page - A really cool JS script to speed up website loading times

Learn X in Y minutes - Handy programming cheatsheets
