@xAbhishek No. I use diffbot for quite a few things; plus it does massive scrapes for your pipe. Don’t want all traffic to be on my token.
@xAbhishek Great. DM it to me when you get it, I’ll plug it in.
@xAbhishek I think diffbot is acting up. But now you’ll get all the HTML content as well.
@Naina Lack of sleep.
@xAbhishek I might have fixed it.
I find it hard to take a design blog seriously when their own “design” is inconsistent and frankly a little stupid /memo http://t.co/ZbWNzPL
So I was wrong. The baton for keeping me awake has been passed on to a 5pm cup of coffee.
@Naina If a decision scares, it’s definitely not the right one. So …
This cheeseburger will make me write VHDL the next 2 hours.
@codelust obviously you missed the part where I haven’t slept in 24 hours.
@codelust I don’t get it …
This coke is going to keep me awake for the next 8 hours. Hopefully.
@Reetesh I’m not. Plus, it’s not like I’m calling them asian. Giving individuality where individuality is due.
Japs love that crimson-ish red. That, and white. It’s /everywhere/ in their designs and branding.
Starting from the entry for Psychotherapy, I’m now reading the entry on Interpersonal Attraction http://t.co/aGkKif1
@Naina WWDC. My return to India. Work on a new project. Big life-altering decision. … to start …
@xAbhishek Hang on.
@xAbhishek BTW, let me know if you can’t get it to work with Pipes. I’ll cook something up for you.
For some reason, I and sleep don’t see eye to eye these days. Another unintended all-nighter pulled. #sigh
@xAbhishek Use it with Yahoo pipes.
@codelust We were? Wow, I’m totally blanking on this. Funnily, I can’t even go back and check.
That ringing one hears after listening to very loud music? Yeah, that makes me euphoric. #realisation
@codelust When did you quit? Wait, when were you *on* Facebook? o_O
I don’t want to call this “Likes”, but I don’t have a choice.

@ajaykant88 Yep; it had to be done. And nothing, I’ll be going back to India in a couple of weeks, summer break.
I really dislike people that are loud. And I don’t mean just the volume.

@ankurb Why serial killers?
Some days I want to randomly call people up and say “I’m a freak / I’m a weirdo / What the hell am I doing here? / I don’t belong here.”
I do find it amusing that iA Writer for Mac is $18 but for iPad it’s $1.
Bought iA Writer & Byword to compare. Byword has ridiculous amount of padding; squashed text makes me claustrophobic. iA Writer wins for now
The difference between “kiss” and “kill” is one alphabet.
“Want” makes you work towards earning something. “Need” makes it a demand; demands you have no right to make.
@AceyTech My point transcends things and materialism. Think “we need an alternative to Facebook”, but deeper.
@AceyTech “Want” is consumerism. “Need” is retardism, brainwashism, and false sense of empoweredism.
@AceyTech TV is dead, IMHO.
So apparently the #HoN DDOS’ers are from UK. And apparently UK law says up to 10 years in prison for something like this. Scary stuff.
Enjoy the weekend: http://t.co/IuSW9ks
@highonanimpulse Not true. It just means that IRL you can never accurately assign values to all variables (significant or not), so to speak.
@codelust I’m an enlightened hermit; didn’t you know?
@highonanimpulse What does objectivity have to do with it?
Ppl throw around “need” like an old pillow. 99% of the things you think you “need”, you don’t. Your life might even be better without them.

@ankurb a) fountain pens are beautiful. I like using beautiful things. b) every stroke is intentional; you feel every stroke you make.
@ankurb Fountain pens.
How the hell is it rainy, windy and sunny at the same time?
At 7pm in the evening?
@ankurb “enemy” is the wrong word, since it validates your hypothesis. But you knew what I meant.
@ankurb I think causality is a natural enemy to your hypothesis, since given enough time, both the cause and effect reinforce each other.
Number of steps to “Philosophy” from any Wikipedia article ~ http://t.co/eTJM9Gk
@codelust Yes, but Yahoo needs the hook. Google doesn’t.
@codelust Remember Knol? It’s a bit like that.
@xAbhishek Not like I’m planning on sending a mail from it.
@xAbhishek Big downsides to Kindle is the hardware keyboard and lack of touch. But I’m not getting it right now. Maybe around Christmas.
@anexasajoop Well, then I’ll figure out what the “Samaddarer” in the title is referring to. Win win either way.
OMG. Want. So. Bad. http://t.co/j5BcyVY
Of course, playing with 5 strings helps. Less strings to mis-hit.
Aaarrggghhh my fingers!!
You know what makes playing Petrucci so hard? ‘Timing’ to him is like the spoon in the Matrix.
@ankurb You should stop randomly stopping randoms. Just saying.
After last week’s #HouseMD and what it did to me, I’m apprehensive of watching this week.
@xAbhishek That sucks. Airtel is better than that.
@xAbhishek How about the Photon/Docomo guys?
@anexasajoop I remain unconvinced. I’ll read the original and let you know if your translation is right or not—give me a couple of weeks.
@xAbhishek If you think MTNL is better than Airtel, you have another thing coming.
@Naina Of course it would be. You think that stopped the creation of Wikipedia?
http://t.co/SsQx43J is pure sex.
I wonder if anyone has ever thought of recording every single design element they’ve come up with/across. Like a huge encyclopedia of styles
@singpolyma Hmm. That makes sense then.
Yeah, I’m not walking out in this rain. Sorry scalability lecture.

That said, I’ve actively stopped calling myself a designer or developer. I haven’t worked in a long time and I’m definitely out of the loop.
Thing with http://t.co/VgxKuXM is, a real professional doesn’t need to read it & It’ll frustrate/infuriate the non-professionals who do.

Liking, accepting and respecting something are three different things. Learn to do one without doing the other.

@codelust You put too much faith in sequels. And did you really mention “Transformers 3”?

@burnflare so why do you need a paid third party GTD app?
@burnflare or you could wait for 3 weeks and get OTA syncing between iTunes and iOS, then use good ol’ iCal.
@RobertLRay absolutely. The way they jump out startles me everytime.
Like a well done toast, you know you’ve had a good sleep when your eyes pop open automatically right as your alarm is about to go off.

Do you still have to brush your teeth in the morning if you never went to sleep the previous night?
I don’t know why, but I find this poster pretty well designed. http://img.ly/4dfM
Why can’t @Reederapp let us assign separate actions for swipe gestures on open/closed articles? If closed, open it. If open, star it?
It’s dog eat dog, rat eat rat.
@AceyTech no you don’t, worthless lemmings.
@AceyTech FWIW, that’s not the width of my screen. It’s the width of my browser window (yes, I don’t maximise).
@AceyTech Lolo. Fixed.
@ankurb Looking forward to it.
So are headers, but not so much though.

Why I waited so long to get a Mario ringtone, I don’t know.
@ankurb I write when I’m on the move, bc regardless of what people say, writing is faster than typing on a phone (even tho I’m pretty quick)
@ankurb I prefer to type because it’s faster. It beats writing when your ideas are forming and need to be recorded quickly.
@stealingsand Yep. I don’t want to think about it.
@stealingsand best of luck.
I LOVE THIS THEME! (and what it lets me do!) http://t.co/2mfVmNj
@ankurb OTOH, there is probably a relation between people who draw/sketch and handwriting.
Just a caution: if you’re squeamish and haven’t seen this week’s House, don’t watch it.
I nearly fainted. #truestory

@ankurb Yes, and it’s a lot better than ‘good’.

@singpolyma If it helps, the context is Myles Kennedy (Alter Bridge lead).
@ilovetypography Because once you “connect” with human beings, you either end up hating them or they’re with you for life.
@singpolyma I disagree. You can’t make a bad singer sound good, no matter what you do. I’m not talking about “good” in the general ppl sense
@singpolyma So you think a singer can sound good with a good producer even if he has no talent of his own?
What do you call a singer who sucks live but is actually pretty good in the studio?
No product of creativity is ever truly finished.
rstevens The part of Motivation will be played by Coffee this morning.

@xAbhishek It’s a Wordpress tag.
Twitter for Mac’s titlebar’s font rendering is all sorts of ugly. The contrast is all messed up, and it’s not Helvetica either. #ugh
The new design turned out pretty nice, even if I may say so myself. Taking time to plan it out >> diving into code right off the bat.
@xAbhishek Not really. I include a stylesheet for every post that holds custom styles for it, based on its title slug. Line 36 in the source
@xAbhishek Have a look at the source; see if you can spot it.
@xAbhishek Just a plugin to parse Markdown. I can’t write without it :]
@xAbhishek Yes. And very. You just need to plan out your flow before you set it up. Wordpress is a wicked powerful CMS when used right.
@xAbhishek But I’ve been working on the concept for about a month now (yes, that’s what I was doing while were exams were on).
@xAbhishek It was quick because there is very little that is fixed (read: almost nothing). So there was little to actually code.
People think I’m telling them to fuck off when I’m not.
If I want you to fuck off, I’ll tell you. Believe me.
My beta theme is now live! http://t.co/PoT1iY4
Is it just me or do certain colours become a designer’s signature?
@andyrutledge Maybe people don’t go to learn but to build their network; meet other designers. Designing is a collaborative activity ‘innit?
Marilyn Manson crossfading into Maroon 5. #lolitunes
Trying out this golden ratio stuff, my dimensions are off by~5-10px max from what they’re supposed to be to maintain the ratio. Interesting.
@SwaroopH Lol. Although I would like to NOT be stuck with this phone for a 100 years. It’ll be slow as heck.
@SwaroopH … please, don’t even say such a thing.
The good thing about your phone being your music player is that you’ll realise it’s lost the moment you lose it.
Should’ve saved up for a rainy day.
This is one of those designs that will take months to fill itself out. Annoying, but a little excited to see how it actually turns out.
