Fun With Clients

Tuesday, July 26th, 2005

I had to call a client in US. This is what happened in a series of emails. Me: Could you let me know when I can call you? Client: How about 6 PM EST? Me: Uh… that’s a bit late for me (3:30 am my time). Could we do it a bit sooner? Client: Sure! […]

Printing Is Coming to SC!

Tuesday, June 28th, 2005

After a super job of correcting IMAP, Colin has started work on printing in Sylpheed-Claws. This was perhaps one of the biggest issues in SC and it’s wonderful to see him getting his hands dirty on this. Paul tells me this was the first commit after v1.9.12 (released today) too. Whoo! πŸ˜€ Now only if […]

I’ve not worked with him much but boy, does this guy have a sense of humour! I’ve wanted to work with him for a long time but opportunity has never presented itself. We chat once in a while. This conversation happened a couple of days back. Client: dude… where is (name omitted)? im gonna kill […]

Theme – Finally!

Wednesday, April 27th, 2005

When Vinish upgraded to WP 1.5 and then applied a theme, I too gave in and selected this excellent them called Orange Sky by Nao. Had to do some editing of the template files to make a few things working but I like what I have here. I might even keep it for some time. […]

So now I’m a contributing member at The Razor9. The razor9 is best described as a ‘collective blog’. A bunch of people, from all over the place, dropping in posts / links / information .. and random thoughts. This was started some time ago by Karan and has been lying in dormancy for most of […]

10 Minutes or Less!

Friday, April 15th, 2005

I have noticed that in work hours, I reply to all my business mail within 10 minutes of receiving them. It has not gone into 11th minute since the last 3 days that I started noticing it. That has to be good by some standard.

You can’t delete those cookies, you Moron!

Tuesday, April 5th, 2005

Maninder at office sent me over to Company Bypasses Cookie-Deleting Consumers story. The New York company on Thursday unveiled what it calls PIE, or persistent identification element, a technology that’s uploaded to a browser and restores deleted cookies. In addition, PIE, which can’t be easily removed, can also act as a cookie backup, since it […]

Powered by WordPress 1.5

Saturday, February 26th, 2005

So I finally got some time on my hands and spent the last 30 minutes in backing up the database, the old files and upgrading the blogging software to WordPress 1.5 from 1.2.2. For the uninitiated, no, I did not re-design the blog—the default look of WordPress has changed. Be assued however that I will […]

Upgrade Time

Sunday, January 30th, 2005

Link Dumps – Individual Vs Regular Consolidated Lists

Monday, December 20th, 2004

Going through my blog today, I noticed many of my posts are nothing but individual link dumps—suggesting a link blog. It’s not one and will never be. Individual link posts are useless. They get lost in the clutter. Nobody remembers the posts, and the title/description used could be witty enough to be something that has […]

The Soothsayer Effect

Monday, December 13th, 2004

One thing that I’m finding increasingly happening on blogs and something I just don’t get is the need to make predictions. You go anywhere and somebody is either predicting or pointing to such a prediction either agreeing or disagreeing. I call this The Soothsayer Effect. But really, what’s the point? It’s so darned easy to […]
