@DilliBelle Arrey DM to check karo! :)
@beastoftraal Ah yes, Bollywood Hungama. The elephant in the room. Guess I’ll just have to make do with them until the 3rd. Thanks!
@beastoftraal Hey Karthik, is Rockstar out on some online store already? Flipkart says the CD release is still 3 days away.
@5anket Lucky bugger.
When did this happen?
@DilliBelle Just the two of us then. Hmm. :)
@gonsalves_r Thanks! You’ll be busy with jsFoo I suppose. :-)
@StrangelyYours That sounds right. Wish I remembered saying that though :) But hey, thanks!
@mighty_boosher Amitating dost.
Thanks for the dropoff yesterday. Something tells me I wouldn’t have done too well on the public transport.
@ConfuseusSay My weekly gaali khaoing time. Love it!
Today’s spoils: mini idlis, watermelon juice, chole bhature, leechi ice tea, garden burger, diavola pizza, penne arrabiata, spaghetti peppe…
@rakeshrach I’m afraid it will. :(
I’ll let @souvikdg offer a non-literal translation when he comes around.
Nusrat’s gem— काली काली जुल्फों के फंदे ना डालो हमें ज़िन्दा रहने दो ऐ हुस्नवालो ना छेरो हमें हम सताए हुए हैं बहुत ज़ख्म सीने पे खाए हुए हैं
Some strange bug is not letting me re-tweet @souvikdg sharing a gem of song by the great Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan, so I’m just going to quote:
@anexasajoop Good luck Pooja. Go kern the world!
Bloody hell. Up at 5! Weirdest side-effect of free beer. #KFBeerUp
@xAbhishek Dude, you have to give me ‘Batman - Under the Red Hood’ next time we meet. Pukka.
@keeperofthekeys Beginners’ mistake. Some misplaced sense of security that carrying 5 meals worth food is your videshi diet taken care of.
@pardekaduniya Shor In the City, Shaitan, Yeh Saali Zindagi?
@ConfuseusSay Italian, not American. But alas…
@s_shashank_s I think I’ve even paid a fine at one point for losing my paper printout. So relieved they’ve finally come around to this.
@mighty_boosher Absolutely. Only gets better with multiple viewings.
“हया तो छोड़ो बेहया की चाल भी खा जाए
और अगर परोसा जा सके तो ख्याल भी खा जाए”
Also, -1 to my internet geek cred for managing to miss this.
@BrahmiComputing looks up Caravan magazine phone numbers :P
Dare to [fucking] think beyond Facebook.
@souvikdg Stealth real-world cases (by Twitter) for testing if the ‘Deny’ button works as advertised.
@pricelessjunk Hipster. Replace flip-flops with chappals for added effect.
Btw, you should totally follow that twitter account. #ShamelessPlug
@lokallobaat 20th September. 2 more days!
@souvikdg I’ve had better. Idlis are not their strong point. However, I think this place fills the gap that Andhra Bhavan’s breakfast left.
@5anket There there. Well actually, it’s all here here. :P
@DilliBelle Yes, I love you too. :P
Idli, Upma, Set Dosa, Bisi Bele Bhath, Watermelon juice & Rasmalai ice-cream at the Karnataka Sangha food centre.
“Hey! I think we met sometime in Melbourne.”
“Did we? At Uni? I don’t remember… wait, oh yeah, I fixed your router in 1st year!”
@iTreanor Ah, the geek legacy lives on! :)
What’re you up to these days?
@iTreanor DPS RKP. Wait, do I know you?
@iTreanor अरे क्या बताऊँ पुल्कित जी । ऐसे solid breaks लगते हैं ना इन नए बसों में, शरीर का एक एक organ हिल जाता है !
@lokallobaat Don’t think this is happening for me. Mani Kaul though I’m also very interested in. When are you back?
Blues. Slow dancing. Drag, drag, drag… where’s my single malt?
@keeperofthekeys Um, okay.
I’d gone for last week’s sketch night and it was howlarious!
@rungtaakki So proud of you :’)
@BrahmiComputing And funny: ‘ताज़ा करें’ for ‘Refresh’.
@keeperofthekeys … Wine Wine!
Eena Meena Deeka, Dai Damo Deeka… @miranjdesign stereo.
Dilbar dilbar dilbar, haan dilbar dilbar. Dilbar dilbar dilbar, haan dilbar dilbar. #DTC stereo
@xAbhishek Here’s some expert advice to help you out:
@xAbhishek Thumb rule is to try to read long form text yourself and then return to reading the OS interface. Does it feel natural?
@xAbhishek I wouldn’t be so harsh as to call it unreadable, but a few notches higher would be a lot more comfortable on the iPhone screen.
And a good night to you too!
#DTC bus driver halts before a flyover. Conductor shouts, “neeche se neeche se, phir laft lena. Arrey koi samne khada ho kar raasta bata do”
@aroradush Loha garam hai. Kamra khaali ho raha hai. Shift kar jaiye, phir training shuru! :)
@aroradush I just completed the first book (for the nth time) again! All triggered by someone’s re-tweet of a quote from the book.
@aroradush “Ah, music, a magic beyond all we do here.” —Dumbledore.
@s_shashank_s I’ve seen photos of the Nizamuddin one. Is it the one on the way to the Dargah? And woah, a new discovery in Dwarka! Details?
@aroradush Sitting atop a body of work that includes Khosla ka Ghosla, Oye Lucky Lucky Oye and Love Sex aur Dhoka! :)
Came across as a very sensible, realist fellow who doesn’t live in a world of hopes and “if only”s. No wonder he is where he is.
Interesting Q&A session with Dibakar Banerjee today before the screening of Oye Lucky. Talk of life in Delhi+Bombay, offbeat cinema & more.
@aroradush Not that Nolan has a trademark style, but I know what you mean. Have you seen his first feature ‘Following’?
@aroradush Yup, still open. People are calling and visiting everyday so hurry!
@aroradush Working your way through the list I see. Good, very good.
@anexasajoop Oh goodie! Our beloved markup and stylesheets can misbehave at times though, so if you need any help, feel free…
@anexasajoop So, so very much. May I ask what you’re bringing to life?
OH @souvikdg: “I found a guy working at Infosys Bangalore.”
@lokallobaat: “That could be anyone on the street, no?”
@pricelessjunk Communicate to them a definite age upper limit.?
@mighty_boosher Haha, well at least you had a thinner bottle at your disposal. Poor fellow is having to rely on just warm water here.
@mighty_boosher Hahaha! I shall deliver your sympathy once I’m done laughing.
Housemate’s hands stuck with fevikwik. He missed the crucial “Keep out of reach from children.”
@aroradush I liked it. We missed the session at 7:30 but caught the one at 10. Will be returning for that, the awesome halva we had + more!
@erm_wat Dude why is your phone not turned on and on roaming?
@NipunKedia DETAILS :P
@keeperofthekeys XKCD high five! Was explaining this to my housemates during the mohalla get-together after the quake.
@souvikdg Heard this idiot on the idiot box saying in a bored tone, “No our instruments did not record any strong seismic activity.”
@keeperofthekeys Thank you! :P
@souvikdg Earthquake. Shaken!!
@sonix15 Yup. One part of me is going… finally! :P
Damn. No one got the joke.
First live quake experience. Left quite shaken.
@souvikdg I doubt shorts will be an issue, but just to be on the safer side… yes.
Housemate moving out end of Sep, 1 room vacancy in our furnished 3BHK@ Vasant Kunj. Ping me for details if you’re looking for accommodation.
@gonsalves_r My my, you’re too kind. Enjoying this collaboration.
@mighty_boosher Wordpress yes, Vbulletin no. :-/
Third dinner. Oh yeah!
@lokallobaat Camera taiyaar rakhiyo.
@lokallobaat Probably. Will take a final call on Friday depending on availability and the full speaker lineup.
Reminder: Heading to Nizamuddin Dargah on Thursday for a night of sufi music. Any one interested is welcome to join.
@gonsalves_r ‘God sent’ is how I like to think of Dropbox. :)
140 character filmy doses from the younger Rungta over at @pardekaduniya.
Old school over at @ohnoir.
@pallavimanchi Nice hosts, good food, great place, isn’t it? Been hunting for a similar setting in Delhi, in vain. Guess it’s the weather.
@xAbhishek Sadly, yes. It’ll still be up for an year or so before they turn it off completely.
Open Invite: Hazrat Nizamuddin Auliya Dargah, this Thursday night (8th Sep).
@keeperofthekeys Not lists, just don’t follow those you don’t want on your timeline.
@keeperofthekeys Ah but here you can choose to not listen without offending the speaker.
That build up to an eagerly awaited Rahman soundtrack release.
@gonsalves_r Yeah. “Doubt even Adobe apps take this long to install.” Wait. Adobe AIR. What was I thinking? :P
@gonsalves_r Violating my computer. Doubt even Adobe apps take this long to install.
@lut4rp The realised joys of a physical existence. Great story!
@jackerhack I’ve kept it around for very specific tasks: World time, Currency conversion, Calendar, Mint stats and now Google Analytics.
@pricelessjunk Nice new logo! When did this happen?
@jackerhack I’ve ditched Basecamp myself, but Highrise has fit the bill really well. We’re still on the free plan.
Of the people that I have nothing but disgust for, motorists who splash water on pedestrians, cycle riders, autos etc. must be right up top.
@immortalmechano Not in our dictionary. :P
@immortalmechano There’s a reason that page says “hire” ;-)
All this pizza talk at @miranjdesign HQ reminding me of Melbourne; Lygon Street, Hardware Lane and that one time I was served pepperoni.
@DilliBelle I hope it’s for not liking the Atif Aslam overdose.
Full-on Atif Aslam on the @miranjdesign HQ stereo today. :-/
@DilliBelle I suddenly feel all powerful. Let’s see: Twitter’s quarantine room. For stay orders on people with too many followers. :P
Today’s #dhinchakRingtone heard on the bus: “Oye oye, oye oye, oye o o aaa…
@pricelessjunk Best thing about Indian festivals, no?
Afore linked awesome Bollywood covers site by @goberoi.
@milliblog you have to see this.
@souvikdg Oooh that is a gold mine. Nos. 7, 9, 13 standouts and the big bang number 20! :P
