Qualcomm Atheros AR9285 + Windows 10 Issue [Resolved]

So, I installed Windows 10 after reading about it and getting over the insane amount of data Windows mines from you. I figured that most companies do something like this and Microsoft just so happens to be quite candid about it -- after it was brought to light by someone on a site which shall not be named (I'm sure those of you who know can guess).

Be that as it may, my Lenovo G580 stopped being able to reach the Internet and I clicked on my WiFi was grayed out and could not, would not connect to my wireless connection no matter what I did.

Luckily I managed to resolve it through a workaround. So, if you're stuck then you should just follow the instructions. This should work for any WiFi connectivity issue (you just have to download the drivers that pertain to your particular WiFi hardware model. Mine just happens to be the Qualcomm Atheros AR9285.

Bangalore Outdoor Adventure - Kailasagiri

As someone who has been in Bangalore for some time, I was keen in finding some 'outdoorsy' things to do. Trouble is Bangalore itself has little to offer within the city limits for that type of fun, so you have to go out of the city instead.

After looking around, I got wind of a 'cave temple' outside the city, about an hour and half drive. Excited with the prospect of seeing something new, I got my family into the car and off we went.

An Observation of the Failing Rupee and Indian General Elections

For those of you keeping track of the failing Rupee, there is just something really strange going on. Consistently, every single time there has been a general election the Indian Rupee has plummeted. It seems to be expected and is reinforced by a severe lack of concern from the central government, only stepping in when foreign investors started fleeing.

What happened? Or rather, what is happening. Check out the images below to get a grip on what I am going on about.
