What to say

When I lost my mom last year, I was very busy with a lot of activities at home. I got a lot of phone calls from friends and family who could not make it in person due to COVID-19. A lot of those phone calls were either about how they feel about losing my mother or other anecdotes of people dying due to COVID. I understand that their intentions were right but they did not know what to speak. I expected something like this:

Hey, I heard about the news. I don’t have the right words and please don’t feel obligated to reply. Just know that if I can do something, big or small, now or in the future, I’m just a text away.”

Thank you Anh-Tho Chuong Degroote for saying it out for all of us. Anh is CEO of Lago(https://www.getlago.com/).


Firefox Nord theme customization

I am in love with Nord theme. After successfully moving my Terminal and Sublime Text 4 on MacOS, I wanted to change my browser as well. Firefox is so easy to customize that I decided I will go full Nord on it. So here is a preview of how it looks. I like very minimal setups and the color should be uniform.

Here are the steps:

  1. Install the Arc Dark Theme for Firefox. That should setup the tabs and menu bar.

  2. The tabs and new windows are still light color, so I went ahead and changed the userContent.css and userChrome.css. This is how you do it.

  3. Procedure

    • Type about:config in the URL bar

    • Search toolkit.legacyUserProfileCustomizations.stylesheets and double-click the field to set it to true

    • Type about:support in the URL bar

    • Look for Profile folder field and click on the open button next to it.

    • Create a folder with the name chrome

    • Inside this folder, create a file userChrome.css and paste the following code inside it :

        tabbrowser tabpanels { background-color: rgb(46,52,64) !important; }
        browser { background-color: #2e3440 !important; } 
    • Then create another file userContent.css and paste the followind code in it :
        @-moz-document url-prefix("about:blank") {
            html > body:empty {
                background-color: rgb(46,52,64) !important;
        @-moz-document url("about:blank") {
            html > body:empty {
                background-color: rgb(46,52,64) !important;
        @-moz-document url("about:newtab"), url("about:home") {
          body {
            background-color: rgb(46,52,64) !important;
  4. Finally, set your Homepage and new windows to about:newtab

  5. Completely quit and restart firefox

  6. Enjoy

Death of a close friend I woke up to learn about the death of a very close family friend. Mr. Satyanarayana Goda has been my dad’s and father-n-law’s closest friends. I still remember last year when these 3 were sitting in my living room in India and chatting like a bunch of college kids. He was also instrumental in arranging our wedding and getting the families together. He is someone who is very close to me out of all my dad’s friends. We will miss him. My dad and FIL will definitely miss him.

Mother-in-law’s birthday Many many more to come :)
