Having said that, I must also appreciate the grand and supreme hospitality at @scrumindia NCR event by @KronosInc Noida.

@scrumindia was a good community meet, but it was very disheartening to discover that there was no respect for time.

@VarunSPuri I am not saying that I am unlucky. Just wondering if things can get more hectic that what it is at the moment.

via Twitter for Mac in reply to VarunSPuri

@shamail Thanks for the figure, can I have the units? :)

via Twitter for Mac in reply to shamail

Is there any upper limit to how hectic your life can get?

via Twitter for Mac

@SparklinGuy You just re-worded that :)
By simpler I mean better readability Negative spaces look good (eg NID) but this word is pretty long

via Twitter for Mac in reply to SparklinGuy

@SparklinGuy Adding to that, I’d suggest keeping it simpler.

via Twitter for Mac in reply to SparklinGuy

An invoice for a past payment. A bill that is already due. A card that would reduce earnings by 1/3rd. I am in a vicious circle of expenses.

@pandorazjukebox Anyways, bottom-line - life-cycle needs to be finite. It is not good to stretch the use of an old stuff beyond a point.

@pandorazjukebox They propose a solution with latest version of oracle, but they run it on winxp (a decade old). Thats wat my xp has been.

@pandorazjukebox Sizeable pop may not be very imp reason. We have big pop, but very low internet penetration. http://t.co/Qf0iK3q

via Twitter for Mac in reply to pandorazjukebox

@pandorazjukebox Yes, they know that. But it doesnt happen unless it becomes “business necessity”. For most maintenance jobs old PCs suffice

via Twitter for Mac in reply to pandorazjukebox

@pandorazjukebox Also, we dont dispose old stuff. We repair them. So the older PCs are still running. It even applies to large IT companies.

via Twitter for Mac in reply to pandorazjukebox

@pandorazjukebox I can think of many reasons, but there would be many more. 1. More copies of pirated win xp available. 2. Cheap cyber cafe.
