@jackerhack Interesting. How does the texture differ for greens and reds/browns?
The Indian vegetarian / non-vegetarian mark is a good example of being meaningless to colourblind people. Ask @jackerhack, he knows.

@ap00rv We’ve always found Times to be very readable, and LCDs have, if anything, only improved legibility. Thanks for the feedback though.

In which we play with easter eggs and 3D transforms, and steal from Mac OS X.
@rakeshrach That’s what we defer to when we have to use Git.
@rakeshrach On a mercurial server running on one of our subdomains, behind HTTPS/SSH auth. We’d be on GitHub in a heartbeat if it was HgHub.
Type, pan, scrub, jump; the Greta Sans type specimen site by @thijs is a lot of fun!
OH: We’ve never sent a single email ki aap aaye nahin meri dukaan pe bade din se.

@rohancs Ooh. Link?
Would you like to hear @souvikdg on why designing sites in the browser (like we do here at Miranj) Makes Sense™?
No denying the shabby state of most Indian Government websites. Sadly, not much is happening.

Delhi peeps: Head over to Miranj HQ by 8pm to sample some Agra ke rasgulle, Panchi ke pethe, Bokaro se milkcake, home made peda & more.
We’ve seen a TED talk from 2023, but what about web design from the future?
