@ytvinay Awesome! Have a beer or two on my behalf and bring back amazing photos from that dream destination.
50% of calls overheard on the commute are cases of IT troubleshooting. The rest are pleas of forgiveness to girlfriends/wives.
Beers with @toor_sunny at Hard Rock Café has me all nostalgic about Melbourne.

@rasagy Thanks Rasagy!
Refreshing, candid take on the @IndianGP formula1.com…4/11967.html[+]
Little surprised this was published on F1.com
I’ve been sharing photos on Instagram for a few months now. Collated few of my favs: prateekrungt…/instagraphy[+]
[Incase you missed it last week]
@lokallobaat @souvikdg @vrinda_m Salt in wound and stuff.
@rungtaakki Wise move.
@aral Re-consider that copy. twitter.com/…567673405441[+]
Language phonetics by @lokallobaat:
Bengali :: Rasogulla in mouth.
Thet Punjabi :: Gargling.
Now getting a head-to-foot shakedown on the Punjab Roadways bus back to Delhi. With Messrs. @lokallobaat and @wateva.
Amritsar was: Harmandir Sahib. Clean, wide, orderly. Afternoon siestas, midnight photography, 3am darshan. Humbling, peaceful, beautiful.
Amritsar was: Quenching. Lassi, kulfi, bunta, jalebi, juice, ice-cream and lots of paani.
Amritsar was: Kulchians. Hot, spicy, delicious tandoori kulchas from Bhai Kulwant Singh.

@lokallobaat No way dude. This only makes it better!

@rungtaakki Did you fall down OK this time? :P
@lokallobaat Well, now you do. The Instagram folks opened up their API only a month or two ago, so these apps are all quite new.
@rakeshrach Thanks! That cover art photo is one of my all time favourites.
@umadamle “Raw mango” just doesn’t sound right. Kaccha aam FTW!
@umadamle Thanks! All shot with my trusty iPhone 3GS camera. prateekrungt…agraphy/info[+]
@xAbhishek Thanks! Took a 100 photos to get to volume 1, so it might be a while before the second volume.
My favourite Instagram shots, laid out on a single page. Didn’t want you non-iPhone folk to miss out.

@rashmiswamy So you did manage to do it all! Have a great trip.
@rashmiswamy Surely you can buy a mosquito repellent in Calicut?
Phew. Marathon session at work today.
@toor_sunny Crap, will be in Amritsar next Sunday. Which other days will you be in Delhi?
@oddysee Not only did they keep it clean, they made some great moves. Good times for F1.
@rakeshrach Agreed. Might go down as one of the classics.
No rain. No pile-ups. No real cock-ups. 1 retirement.
What a race this Chinese GP has been. This is why I love Formula 1.
@wateva You’re welcome!
@rakeshrach @xAbhishek No Sir, none.
Webmark blast-from-the-past: Programmers Don’t Like to Code, by Wolf @rentzsch. Actual post unfortunately no longer up. prateekrungt…/371.webmark[+]
@xAbhishek We derived it from the Sanskrit ‘ranj’, so unsure if ‘miranj’ itself has a meaning.
@Jason_Birch This one wasn’t. Got my cake, ate it and gloated much.
Tapbot finally presents a UI to use Twitter lists as native timelines and not just lists. Pity the app itself isn’t as fluid as Tweetie.

Just when I thought this stunted day couldn’t get any worse, @souvikdg informs me that I missed out on cake.
@5anket 21:30 – 23:30 hours IST.
Wednes-day-off: Paranthas were had from the paranthewalla near the Moolchand flyover (metro station, to be specific).
Would’ve totally applied for this if I wasn’t self-employed: Designer wanted at @Cleartrip jobs.hasgeek…n/view/5vp7u[+]
@umadamle Dang! Well, hope you get to do a real one soon.
@lokallobaat Vaguely related: you should watch Sofia Copolla’s The Virgin Suicides.
@umadamle Good stuff. Are those two identities being used by the businesses?
@rashmiswamy Look in the fridge!
@rashmiswamy Pizza! Chocolate! Momos! Cake! Kulfi!
@lokallobaat @souvikdg Bada bhola hai tu. stuffs pizza in mouth
@aroradush Thanks Dushyant!
@rakeshrach Wow. This is new to me, but now I recall you mentioning about these music gharanas that have continued over generations.
@BrahmiComputing Also of interest: NYTimes pits translation services against European languages. nytimes.com/…anslate.html[+]
@BrahmiComputing Google translate has that effect ;)
Unfortunately it’s also why I haven’t added a translate option to aksharein.co…nsliteration[+]
@umadamle Thanks! We’re just about to complete 2 months in the trenches. :)
@BrahmiComputing Try using Google Translate on Gulzar’s lyrics for the song Kaminey. It’s priceless.
Finally past the most unexpected hurdle of the journey so far. @miranjdesign now has a bank account. What a relief.
@rakeshrach Only just discovered Pandit Nikhil Banerjee. Any pointers to more of his great performances?
Ending the weekend in सुर and ताल with Pt. Nikhil Banerjee youtube.com/…ure=youtu.be[+]
@rasagy Read about 9 Circuits in livemint.com…ourself.html[+]
@mansigrover A painter by night?!
Really like the ones in Warli style. The red one on canvas stands out in particular.
@simplyarun @anexasajoop I can vouch for that. Witnessed in person! :)
Naan ruined by bad, artificially flavoured mango kulfi from adjacent Bikaner Sweets Corner. Grumble.
Awesome Chur-Chur naan at Pardeep Corner with @lokallobaat @souvikdg and others.
Pradeep Corner @ Paharganj http://instagr.am/p/C-pMc/
About to start a @EOiD food walk in Paharganj. Jealous?
@Nandini_M @triggrin Yes please! Time is way too underrated.
Gem: QA is generally made up of programmer rejects. #ttw
Will be at @triggrin today. Come say hi if you’re around.
@rashmiswamy Has its moments, but a little early to talk about the sum of it all.

@anexasajoop One particularly jobless day @rungtaakki went about pursuing granddads, family pandits, records & what not. Crazy but awesome!

Ramachandra Guha: Experiments With Facts. A much needed response to the shameless brouhaha over the Mahatma. http://instapaper.com/zev94at2f[+]
@lokallobaat I’m with you on that one! :)
Only took 4+ months of market research, some crocodile wrestling and a regular dosage of expletives for @lokallobaat to buy his first DSLR.
@jackerhack How about a Delhi edition of @doctypehtml5?
@toor_sunny Assignments? What are those, kid?
The DTC has an “express” bus that services all stops on the route, just like a regular bus service.
@lokallobaat @PranavBakliwal He has a decent free version too. Used that for an year before finally upgrading to the $5 one. Worth it.
Super awesome post by currently-easy-to-hate @lokallobaat on just another weekend http://howimadeittowankhedeandmetdhoni.posterous.com/
@lokallobaat Bastard. Will never forgive you for that one.
@lut4rp @anexasajoop Try geni.com/[+] Managed to build my tree back up to 20 generations.
@anexasajoop Woah, badhai ho! We’re finally going to get that elusive kickass Indic typeface.
Hey, no pressure. :P
@dipench Sounds interesting. What sort of time frame are we talking here?
@pricelessjunk My thumb rule:

@pricelessjunk Nothing wrong with making money as long as you preserve the experience and the focus.
@pricelessjunk Don’t be hasty. If this is just the 1st ad offer, there’ll surely be more.

@souvikdg Me too! They’d actually replied in the afternoon itself.
Doubt there’s much they can do about this situation though.
.@souvikdg CERT-In just got back. They tell me that the culprit is indeed 126.96.36.199, though that is not an MTNL DNS server.
