I created my Facebook account in 2007, when Facebook was slowly making its trend in this side of the world. And then I made the worst mistake – adding anyone.
I am a motorcycle rider who encountered with a number motorcycle accidents and still in one piece.
Recently I encountered a little accident and thought I should keep this little note written somewhere. We, Sri Lankan are usually reluctant to go for medical advice when damage appears to be small. “Ah.. it’s nothing. It’ll heal.”, is it? We get most of our medical expenses covered by the government, and for these little things we are less likely to spend a night or two at hospital.
Recently I wrote about Mobitel LiveScreen because I was unhappy about the experience.
As soon I published that on my Facebook page (850+ likes), it instantly took vast public attention. So far it reached 13,000+ people without targeted advertising. Given my page’s member base is small, the post made a significant reach. Unless advertised none of my other blog posts ever reached more than 500 people on average. By the time of this writing, I’ve seen more people have started to voice against VAS scams which is a good trend.
So, that happened and I had to spend a considerable amount of time choosing new passwords.
I really didn’t write about how I manage my passwords. I thought about writing this tip because it’s a game of battle between convenience and confidentiality.
රටේ දැන් දැන් සිද්ධ වෙන බරපතල සිද්ධිත් එක්කම මට එකපාරටම පරණ යමක් මතක් වුණා. 2005 අවුරුද්දෙ උසස්පෙළ නිමා කරල රජයේ විශ්වවිද්යාලයකට යන්න සුදුසුකම නූලෙන් මිස් වෙලා රාජගිරියෙ රසායන විද්යා ආයතනයෙ උපාධිය හදාරන්න යන කාලෙ ඇහිච්ච, හිත කලකිරවන වචන කීපයක්.
A rare mongoose hit my bike’s front wheel few minutes ago while I was riding, just near the entrance of the general cemetery. The shock felt like a severe hit, but luckily that guy survived. I turned back to see any injuries, but the engine’s scream made him run away, even though injured.
This shocked me, because, nowadays we don’t see these animals much around. When I was a kid, it was very common to see them running here and there. But today, a mongoose is a rare sight. I think they’re under extinction.
Although he has survived, I feel bad. May be the poor guy might die within a week. If things are going to happen like this again and again, I give up driving/riding. 😦
