Page Timer: Chrome extension to see how long i have been on this page

Page Timer is a nice tool from Google which allow us to track the time we spend on a website or tab.

All the data that Page Timer counts is stored in ram and doesn’t store anywhere else. So if you close the tab, you will loose the time.

You can download the extension here:

Library not loaded: libcrypto.1.0.0.dylib issue in mac

You might have come across this error while dealing with the openssl module.

Inorder to solve this issue follow the following steps

Step 1: Install openssl using brew

brew install openssl

Step 2: Copy copy libssl.1.0.0.dylib and libcrypto.1.0.0.dylib

cd /usr/local/Cellar/openssl/1.0.1f/lib

sudo cp libssl.1.0.0.dylib libcrypto.1.0.0.dylib /usr/lib/

Note the bold folder name. There will be change in that depending on your openssl version

Edit (2019 July)
If you are getting permission denied error even after sudo. Try copying to `/usr/local/lib ` instead. Thanks to George Hotz from comments to pointing it out.

Step 3: Remove the existing links

sudo rm libssl.dylib libcrypto.dylib

sudo ln -s libssl.1.0.0.dylib libssl.dylib

sudo ln -s libcrypto.1.0.0.dylib libcrypto.dylib

That’s it. Now try installing what you have been trying to install.

I hope this helps. If you need any further clarification, do comment.

Keralites ruin coffee/tea by adding sugar and milk

Keralites ruin coffee/tea by adding sugar and milk

I was travelling with 22 international bloggers for the past one week as part of KeralaBlogExpress by Kerala Tourism

One question by one of the travel bloggers is “Why people in kerala ruin the coffee/tea by adding sugar and milk”.

The explanation given by our guide Manoj is as follows

Tea plantations in Kerala was started by the British. Since most of the good quality tea or coffee that is produced in Kerala was exported and what left of it, the dust is what will reach the local market. This continued many years. So in order to make this dust suitable for drinking people of kerala added milk and sugar to it. Altough we get good quality tea now, the tradition of adding milk and sugar to it continued till now.

So, in my case i might not like the most expensive tea without sugar and milk uneasy
