good chinese food

If you're in Bangalore, do visit Madhu's new restaurant, Shiok Far-eastern Cuisine that serves good Thai, Malaysian, Indonesian, and Singaporean food and has a rather spiffy website with a "Chef's Blog" even. The restaurant is on CMH Road, Indiranagar, Bangalore and all the food here contains no MonoSodiumGlutamate(Ajinomoto), so you don't have to worry about brain damage or anything like that when eating here.

faster firefox search

From IITB, the Google.co.in server, which is the indian mirror to Google responds much faster than it's .com counterpart. Since Mozilla Firefox uses the slower google.com as the URL for all its searches, and I use the integrated search features (right click search, and the search box) a lot, I thought it'd be cool to have these point to .co.in in place of .com so that it doesn't take forever to access my secondary brain. Here's how to do it:

1. To edit the default URL for the search box, go to firefox/searchplugins, where firefox is the application directory. Open up google.src for editing. Change the "action" value that has google.com to google.co.in. Now all searches from the top right search box will be sent to the indian server. You'll need to restart your browser for this one.
