A night in the world of blogs. Looking for my missed friend, "Sleep".

Since I was having exam from about 2 weeks, I was awaken until about 2.00am in each day. Now todays subject is over. Even though there are about 10 more days ahead to face the next subject, I don't feel any sleepiness at this time(12.47am now). I thought I can sleep so early today because nothing to do tonight. But it seems my biological clock has changed. So, still I'm awaken. I passed time reading blogs in my google reader list while being online in facebook. Even though I have a big list of blogs that I'm following, reading blogs was not a regular activity of me. But while reading through so many blogs today I felt that reading blogs should be a daily activity of mine which is very worthwhile.

During this sleepless night I did something which I should have done a long time ago. While reading through some Sinhala blogs, I realized that Sinhala characters doesn't appear properly in my box. This is not the first time I've noticed this but I didn't care about it until today. I thought I haven't enabled Sinhala Unicode properly. So, I followed some instructions on the web  and enabled Sinhala. I saw the beauty of Sinhala on web at that time in my web browser.

While enabling Sinhala, I saw the name of Dr. Chamath Keppitiyagama who is a senior lecturer in my University in the contributors name list in that web page. So it seems Sinhala Unicode work is heavily done mostly by UCSC people.
