@grahamrb Thanks mate. More to come, including our site.
DNS entries have finally kicked-in for my aforementioned site. Please update any links: http://thereturnofschumacher.com/.
@amolpradhan A huge fan right from his first few years in F1. Attending the Australian Grand Prix is a sure thing.
Schumacher’s return made my day, so I made a website in return: http://returnofschumacher.tumblr.com/. Just a start. Plenty planned.
Schumacher & I announce our return to F1. He’ll be driving, I’ll be cheering. Every race, every lap, every turn & straight. Like old times.

We mobilised huge crowds into letter formations on Princes Bridge. It read: ‘Safe Climate - Do It!’. Heard that, Copenhagen?
Join the nationwide walk against warming today. Starting at noon in Melbourne CBD, and throughout the day in cities everywhere.
http://www.walkagainstwarming.org.au/ There’s a walk this Saturday. In every city. It’s going to be huge.
@grahamrb Great design, right? A bright future awaits Min-Kyu Choi - he’s creating it.
@oddysee #OmmWriter sure looks compelling. Time will tell if it can replace #WriteRoom as my preferred writing tool.

@rungta My thoughts exactly.
Bruce Wayne Entertainment: http://bwent.net/. Can’t decide which I like more: the name or the design?
Encryption algorithms do my head in.
@paulidownunder Mostly on web apps, but iPhone’s in the picture.
Solitude is the source of success and sorrow. It will make you or break you.

Road trip to Sydney Festival in January. Headline acts include Al Green and A. R. Rahman! Who’s coming with me?
@oddysee Sure, I’ll send those videos to you as soon as I can.
Playing the ‘MAD’ board game. Loads of fun. http://yfrog.com/16l7pj
Nothing can come between me and a beautiful day as this. I’ll be out, all day, until sunset.

@oddysee Will try to play over the Christmas break.
A pleasant Sunday made peaceful by Jami Sieber’s Hidden Sky. Worth every penny I paid for this album.
Let love be your light, on this festival of lights. Happy Deepavali!
Contrary to popular opinion, Tweetie 2 has not raised the bar, at least not visually. Birdfeed remains easier to use & easier on my eyes.
Hate is blinding.
So long, Subversion. Hello, Mercurial.
My favourite new read is Chai Pilgrimage: “A soul-nourishing tea adventure through Nepal, India & Beyond.” http://chaipilgrimage.com/
@manojn Congrats! Will give it a try next time I fly.
All the world’s a stadium, and all the men and women merely competitors.
Can’t get enough of Melbourne’s new Identity: level11.tumb…rne-identity[+] Versatile design by Landor, Sydney.
@rungta Me too. It’s raining and hailing heavily here.
@manojn I’d go with Flickr. Better designed, better community.
@oddysee I envy your decisiveness in packing.
Evolution decided not to rid us of anger, so who am I to question it?
Packing for a short trip is worse than packing for a long one. I surely need a few pairs but I’m unsure if it’s a few too many.
@oddysee Me too, and I also pondered how Jason keeps outdoing himself in writing and art direction.
Melbourne gets a new identity and I like it: underconside…elbourne.php[+]
Java is to programmers what Photoshop is to designers. An ugly beast you’d want to kill but need to tame for its power.
Online writing requires more attention to readers’ attention: the more you write, the less they read.
I was trying to be a better writer, but I found myself becoming a clearer thinker. Much the same.
@oddysee Nah, it’s those who lined up midnight at Optus stores.
@rungta Vishal’s next sure looks good.
The Panic! sale’s a sweet deal (http://panic.com/sale[+]). Just purchased a Transmit license.
Passion dies out unless one finds a comforting medium of expression.
I’m learning what it really means to design from the content out.
She’s got the right attitude: http://www.abc.net.au/news/photos/2009/04/29/2555603.htm
@jaigs Nothing serious, but I publish a few on Flickr, mostly from hiking trips: flickr.com/p…tos/rejuver/[+]
The less time I have, the more productively I use it.
Tweetie for Mac. Impressive.
There are only two kinds of programming languages: those that read well but run poorly and those that are the exact opposite
@rungta Haha! And what would the relief after exams compare to?
@amolpradhan I always assume it’s copyrighted unless specifically marked ‘creative commons’
@coolkidsdoit Nice one, but what’s the exam for?
Embracing constraints doesn’t mean accepting things as they are; it means going after things that are constrained by design.
@amolpradhan iPhone? Who’s iPhone?
@amolpradhan Yikes! I thought The Big T was going strong. Not safe anywhere these days I guess
@paulidownunder I’ve had similar thoughts; barely use it
Chrome on Windows looks and functions better than Safari 4 beta on my mac. Worrisome.
@paulidownunder sure was great seeing rain come down like that
@amolpradhan Welcome to Twitter
@manojn I love mexican food but haven’t been here. Will try it out now that you recommend it. Thanks
Back home after a hectic but fun week in India. Time now to reduce a massive unread count in email and RSS feeds
