Thanks for visiting Capital Advisor. I frequently update this blog to cover various topics on personal finance such as investment strategies, financial products that you should buy and ones that you really should stay away from, financial calculators, emerging themes such as early retirement and financial independence, and much more.

After a brief – ok, long – hiatus, the Tweets make a comeback. A comment that the Notary – he’s disappeared, hasn’t he? – made sometime back during a conversation stuck in my mind and that’s why you’re seeing the Tweets again. Have fun reading them and let me know what you think of them.

  • How did I realize that I have spent a considerable chunk of my life in the passionate pursuit of technology? At Crossword, I read the title of Robin Cook’s novel “COMA” as “CDMA.”

  • If you’ve ever wondered what Rainbow Tables were, the Coding Horror blog has a great explanation on Rainbow Hash Cracking. It’s also one of the few blogs that I am addicted to.

  • HSBC’s getting pretty good at lame marketing techniques. First it was those umbrellas-for-your-fixed-deposits. Now you can get an attractive pen on applying for your pre-approved personal loan from HSBC. In my case, I have been pre-approved for Rs. 540,000. I never asked anyone to pre-approve me for anything. Oddly enough, I had registered my mobile number on HSBC’s website as “do not disturb.” But hey, with the DNC kicking in, I guess these private databases don’t count anymore.

What a co-incidence with your 1st line tweet u mistakenly interpreted ‘COMA’ as ‘CDMA’.. I am these days so much involved in Nanotechnology, that one day when I was reading a profile on Orkut which said Passions : Photography- I interpretted it as “Photolithography”(A Fabrication technique which is used on a microscale).. If someone said “Dust particles”, I hear it as ‘Nanoparticles’, I am infested & Smitten with Nanotechnology bug.. Even god would fail to convince me if he says Nanotech is not my cup of tea..haha :D
