  1. @Tom, so I see you still haven’t lost that wit.

    @David, thanks for reminding me what I need to do.

    @Others, thanks for your kind support. Best

  2. Again a very nice post. I love the way you write, On the other side

    Good to hear that you have changed your diet/living style and getting better.

    Cutting that meat helps a lot.

    Also try this “Flax” seed in your break fast or Flax seed oil very helpful and a natural way to cut on cholesterol.

  3. Good for you Mr. Malik. You nailed it – simplicity and moderation are key to a healthy and prosperous future. Stuff our Mom’s try to instill in us while growing up.

    Good luck !

  4. Mr. Malik,

    I am glad to see that you’re using the new lease on life appropriately … and it shows very well in the material you’ve produced to date. I guess having a simple life enables you with the time and focus to focus on the work at hand.

    And if you want a good veggie dinner or recipes for a Channa Masala, please let me know!

  5. @ Sage… It was created by a friend of the company who is a professional artist. No program was involved in creating of the new icon.

    @Manish Jain… Wii Fit is next on the menu though it is hard to find a copy in SF these days.

    @ Nick, it is about 50 pounds or so in weight loss, though the trick is to keep it all off and let me tell you that is hard.

  6. Hey Om,
    I know I don’t comment much here, but you can not imagine how much this means to me. You really feel like the soul of our little Web community. You are the only one who seems to get on with everyone and does not have point less wars about nitpicky issues. As much as I wish that you have enough time to rest, relax and recover, I also hope to have you around a keep up the good work for our community.
    I hope I will one day have the chance to meet you in person.
    Cheers,
    Moritz

  7. Om, Well wishes on your new lease on life. I like the idea of altering your daily recurring habits but be sure to take the time to enjoy a fine cigar, a smooth scotch, a good hearty burger, or a brat at the ballgame. It’s important that your routine is healthy, lean, and simple as it allows you to enjoy life’s richness without getting into too much trouble. At least that’s my plan for leading a lean but satsfying long life.

    Completely understand if your in a cleansing mode now but be sure to still enjoy here and there.

    Thank you dear sir. Now I hope you have started incorporating some small changes into your life – exercise is the most vital one for it is a good way to keep your thinking clear.

    Hope to hear your update sometime soon.

  9. Om –

    I’m glad to hear that you’ve implemented the changes you’ve told us about. My wife has been on me, lately, to start exercising (the word alone sends shivers down my lazy spine) and we’ve started eating smaller portions of more healthy food.

    I rather like the new avatar, as well. Also, it’s amazing how good a pair of jeans can feel, no?

    Heres to you and your new changes, and hopefully we’ll both be healthy to meet in person sometime, somewhere. Keep up the excellent work on the site!
