Wikipedia almost completing their target of 7.5 Million

I'm pretty positive they're going to make it. They're at 7.3 Million. I'm not exactly sure about what date they started asking for donations. But it could only have been for the month of December.

They've really turned things around since numbers looked pretty grim for them in the start of the campaign. Credit has to go to their finance / administration department getting so many donations in a small period of time.

No doubt, Wikipedia is one of the most used and productive websites throughout the world. People were more than willing to donate for their cause.

I'm happy for Wikipedia, but I did not donate, because I simply thought they didn't really need asking for donations when they could simply have good Ad campaigns and sponsors to serve their purpose.

Thinking about getting sponsors, I wonder how much could they have injected into their infrastructure if they got real sponsors, given they could generate 7.3 Million within a month! - simply through donations!

Amazing! Isn't it?

Why is Sachin Tendulkar not the best batsman in the world?

Purpose of his article is to clear the illusion from a lot of people's minds that Sachin Tendulkar is the best batsman in the world on the basis that he has got more centuries than anybody else.

Coming straight to the facts,

Sachin has played 177 test matches to date. Generally a batsman gets 2 innings in a test match. Sachin mostly played in upper order so there's a good chance he has played most of the second innings as well. He has played 453 ODIs.

Total innings to date Sachin played are 290 + 453 = 743. That's a huge number for any batsman by today's standards.


So if he's played 743 innings and total centuries are 98, then

98 / 743 * 100 = 13.19%.

So his total conversion rate for centuries is 13.19% per game to get a century. For a batsman who has opened 330 ODI innings for his country.

The Legend of Zelda: Breath Of The Wild – What Is Hinox?

Hinox is a big ogre that appears in the Legend of Zelda Super Bowl commercial around 18 seconds in to the video.

It seems to be the biggest and baddest enemy that you might find in the game and this is the latest version of the monster that we can see in the gameplay.

He has got a big array of bombs that he uses to kill and hurt you in the game. Good thing we don't have those type of Cyclops in real life!
