    Disconnect – An Experiment 

    This will be short.

    A small announcement:

    I will be out of touch for about a week on the Internet. Disconnected on all social networks (including twitter) and off-line on chats (including GMail chat) and unavailable on SMS. I have already disabled all email and SMS notifications from the social networks. This is just for the sake of experimenting to see if I can still live without social media, so don’t get weird ideas about this.

    I have decided to introspect, give myself a break, finish that huge list of tasks in my to-do list and see how it goes without all those distractions. I have been disconnected earlier (those power cuts, and infrastructure failures) but those times I was desperate to connect, this time it’s different – it’s intentional. May be I will write about my experience later.

    For the case of crisis, I will still be available on phone and email (which I pledge to check no more than once in a day) for those who can already connect with me through these media.

    Signing off

    Just discovered accidentally – In GMail chat, if you surround text with 2 underscores or 2 stars, they show up as italicized and bold text respectively in the chat. For example: _hello_ gets converted to hello and *world* to world. If you discover more such hidden features of GMail, feel free to share here.
