ellen-terry

Ellen Terry (1847–1928) was an English actress who became the leading Shakespearean actress in Britain.

Born into a family of actors, she began performing as a child and toured widely in Britain in her teens. Among other comic and dramatic roles, she gained fame for her portrayals of Portia in The Merchant of Venice and Beatrice in Much Ado About Nothing, opposite Henry Irving, both in Britain and America. She later managed the Imperial Theatre in London, lectured, and continued to act until 1922.

Slyvia Trench

Eunice Gayson as Sylvia Trench introduced herself in the opening scene of Dr. No as “Trench. Sylvia Trench”, which Bond then mimicked with his now trademark “Bond. James Bond”.

Trench was Bond’s girlfriend for the first two films (Dr. No and From Russia With Love), with a running joke that Bond was called away on a mission just as things were heating up.

Managing Screenshots in Mac

A colleague of mine started using Mac for the first time. She took a couple of screenshots in order to share the same with the team members; however, she wasn’t sure of the location where the screenshots gets saved.

defaults read com.apple.screencapture

This command might look Latin & Greek for those who aren’t familiar with coding, but it can be remembered easily by splitting it into three sections.

  1. com.apple.screencapture – type of activity
  2. read – type of operation (in this case, we gotta read/know which is the default storing location)
  3. defaults – a preselected location configured in Mac

location = “/Users/Prasanna/Downloads/Screenshots”;

After specifying the command in the terminal, response as shown above will be displayed. The response indicates that screenshots are stored in the folder ‘Screenshots’ under the parent folder ‘Downloads’.

Now that we have figured out the default location, is it possible to change the location? The answer is YES! It can be changed.

defaults write com.apple.screencapture location ~/Desktop/Screenshots

After specifying this command in the terminal, hit Enter on the keyboard.

killall SystemUIServer

After specifying this command in the terminal, hit Enter on the keyboard. This command is to terminate the currently running process and configure the system to save the screenshot in the new location.

 

β‚Ή50 Extra, Why?

The guy from the cooking gas agency delivered the gas cylinder. The bill was β‚Ή594. Gave him a β‚Ή500 and β‚Ή100 currency πŸ’΄ note and thought let him have the change.

He showed no sign of movement. I thought πŸ’­ he was counting the collected money πŸ’°; however, just to ensure I asked him “Is everything alright?”.

“You got to give me β‚Ή50 more – the standard delivery charge”, was the response from him.

I was “WTF!?…Why should I pay β‚Ή50 more?”, but gave away the money.

Some of the questions that popped up in my mind were:

1. Does the bill amount include or not the transportation/delivery charges?

2. Where can I get to know the answer for the question above?

3. If the transportation charges are included, whom should be notified about this?
