Last 24 hours have been harrowing for me due to the unauthorised transactions that have taken place on my account. Being hit by credit card fraud does take away more than half of your share of your mind simply because credit card are basically loan accounts. If you don’t pay, the default will impact your CIBIL score and if you do – you already know. It is then up to your bank on how they support you in this regard.

I’ve been using cards (both debit & credit) for over 14 years. Doing almost a decade of online banking. I’ve heard people being hit by frauds on online banking and while using cards. I’ve been quite fortunate of not being targeted until recently.
Months have passed and finally I’ve cracked the code. I’ve been finally successful in my research of obtaining absolute 0.
We buy many shiny new devices some with in-built battery and some with external power source or user replaceable battery. How many times have you seen devices with replacement battery not performing as good as with stock batteries? It could be normal wear and tear but not getting optimal battery life, is also an issue. No, I’m not talking about Apple Batterygate. It it something closer, cheaper and source of instant relief and happiness – batteries used in our toys. Continue reading “Choose your Batteries”
Lots of ups and downs happened this year as well. Unlike other times, this time, I lazed at home and waiting for Monday office tomorrow, 01st January, 2018.
As clock ticks 12:00 tonight, the year 2000s turn adult. Z(er(o)ne)A has upgraded itself to avxio. Watching movie on TV and no special shows. Let’s put all laziness behind in 2017 and be active, fit and healthy in 2018.
Wishing you all a prosperous Happy New Year – 2018.
ZeroneA started with a unique concept of bringing in Zero to One (0987654321 – check your keyboard) and Z-A (the reverse alphabetical order). It suffered from one unique flaw, it was referred as Zee-roh-nee-ah instead of Zero-One-A. Identity crisis it was. All wasn’t wrong in world of ZeroneA, considering how easy it was to refer it :).
The Reverse Way tag of ZeroneA will stay and may be used for other purposes, in future but till then ZeroneA has a new home: AVXIO. It doesn’t solve any problems but at least it’ll (hopefully) always be pronounced A-V-X-I-O. It still has an identity crisis. The I-O is actually 1 & 0. The obsession of ones and zeros continues.
AVXIO (or simply avxio), sums all things Audio, Video, Analog, Digital. Hence, the tag line – Audio, Video, Bits & Waves.
I’ve been missing again, mostly from here. This post coming after over 4 months since Happy New Year 2017.
Where I’ve been? Mostly sleeping, little to none activity.
Why? There’s no particular reason and best I can come up with is was busy with office work. When had free time, played some mobile games (“Clash Royale”). Almost killed this blog due to a stupid mistake. Rebuilt it from scratch and it still looks like $#*+
Now what? I don’t know. Maybe that age old line from me, I’ll try to be regular.
I’ll be back.
Another year passed with several ups and downs. 2016 has come to a passe now but it has touched everyone be it in or out of India.
Demonetization had been the talk of the nation at its fag end, many supported and some did not stop at politicizing it and there were some trying to take advantage. As we enter 2017, hope to have one less thing to worry (carrying currency notes) and make transactions via plastic money or online. Lets enter new year with more point of sale machine & people, banks and shopkeepers keep aside their tax saving ideas aside and adopt this change to make India great again.
Wish you all of you and your near and dear ones a very Happy New Year 2017 and no one to struggle for cash.
