need to improve my writing skills

Thanks to MSEB's (for those of you who don't know, it is Maharashtra State Electricity Board which supplies electricity to the sate) frequent power cuts, I have lots of time to read books again :)
In about a month or so I could read Chaos (by James Gleick) and the much acclaimed novel by Dan Brown (Digital Fortress).
Both of these were excellent reading with the earlier one giving me an superb view on Chaos theory and the later made me think on crypto and digital privacy.
I also realised that i need to improve my writing skills a lot ... so am working on it.

a funny thing

i realised today that i can cut my nails faster than it takes my computer to take backup of my source for MeTA Studio! ha ha what a funny realization :) and also probably an indication that my comp is getting old (the monitor has started showing signs), or that my code has become too big so that it could be opensourced ;)
