@Abhishek_Rai How about day after? I’ll prefer morning as I start working in the afternoon. But if your mornings are busy we can meet at 2.

@Abhishek_Rai Just reached Kalkaji. Let’s meet tomorrow morning, 10:30-ish?

@mesonprojekt Also, scroll behaviour is very unpredictable using MBP trackpad. At times very slow, at times jammed — maybe it’s the js hack.

@mesonprojekt Changing the axis is really disorienting. Imagine changing the steering axis of a car. @rungta

@harisibrahimkv It was fun catching up with you all. Come back during winters for a food walk.

Took out my Bose headphones after a while and discovered the background noise in the @lagoriindia recording (purchased via @oklistenin). :/

@3_Sided_Coin If a product is designed for reading, keeping track of the last read position should perhaps be an intrinsic feature. @rungta

@_karan मुझे भी उनके गाने बेहद पसंद है।

@3_Sided_Coin Ask friends to get it over, e.g. @zainabbawa is there right now.

I had always doubted the tongue map and right I was. Our entire tongue can sense all tastes more or less equally.

@jackerhack Good chances we’ll be there too.

@harisibrahimkv Now I am bubbling with questions. Catch you guys when you’re in Delhi@jackerhackck

via Tweetbot for iOS in reply to harisibrahimkv

@harisibrahimkv Awesome! Now you know why I was pressing you guys to do this. Did you spend a night in Triund?

@vishalarora28 Wohi hua hai. But that’s just one case. Some people on twitter are also referring to me with that spelling. :)

keeperofthekeys Vegetarian people of Delhi, what was last dinner out that you really enjoyed?

via Mobile Web (M2) (retweeted on 7:21 PM, Apr 22nd, 2013 via Twitter for Mac)

@keeperofthekeys Meh. Are you a vegetarian?

Over to @rungta / @lokallobaat.

via Twitter for Mac

@keeperofthekeys Guess they didn’t have ‘right’ expectations. Not everyone will like their sauces. Go for their signature Peri Peri chicken.

@zainabbawa I am not too bothered yet. Will play on for a while.

@geohacker I doubt a forced login would help them with that — if fact, IMO that should be the last step@aadvaarkrk

@Abhishek_Rai Sure! Your place is on my way to work. I am not a morning person but can make an exception for good coffee and conversation :)

via Tweetbot for iOS in reply to Abhishek_Rai

@beanbuffs Thanks a ton to you too! It wouldn’t have been easy putting it all together.

via Tweetbot for iOS in reply to beanbuffs

Lots of coffee, gossip, gyaan and fancy brewing (youtu.be/FxIs2GVsqgY) at the with @beanbuffs. Now I know how less I know.

@3_Sided_Coin I think what’s being overlooked is that impulsive highlighters highlight text without wanting to perform any action. @rungta

via Tweetbot for iOS

@3_Sided_Coin @jackerhack and few others @hasgeek are working out of McLeod Ganj. Have you been there?

via Tweetbot for iOS in reply to 3_Sided_Coin

@jackerhack Really tempted and your tweets make it worse. But I’ve 5 functions to attend over next 9 days + a hasty move will unsettle mom.

@GnrlMxms It’s pretty heavy. Not everyone would be able to handle it/enjoy it in the summers.

via Tweetbot for iOS in reply to GnrlMxms

@GnrlMxms You’re not going for it in the summers, right?

via Tweetbot for iOS in reply to GnrlMxms

@GnrlMxms Golconda Bowl. Good, not exceptional, and the only place I know that adds greens. I’d recommend Purani Dilli (Zakir Nagar) more.

@manishc Making an app just for the sake of it is bad. At the same time assuming an app cannot give advantage over a site can be wrong too.

via Twitter for Mac in reply to manishc

@manishc So to cater to people visiting from mobile you again have multiple options — responsive or mobile site. Both having pros and cons.

via Tweetbot for iOS in reply to manishc

@manishc In your case, it seems the portal is already on the web. So you can’t rule out people visiting from mobile even if u create an app.

via Tweetbot for iOS in reply to manishc

@manishc One case u work on open platform with the full audience. Other case you rework for every platform but get full device capabilities.

via Tweetbot for iOS in reply to manishc

@manishc You’ll have to weigh the advantages/disadvantages of web & native apps for your use-case/context and pick the one that fits better.

via Tweetbot for iOS in reply to manishc

@manishc This debate has been going around for a long time. Boils down to web vs native apps — both have their own merits & demerits.

via Tweetbot for iOS in reply to manishc

@manishc Am I missing something. Pages don’t matter as much as layouts do. If all 250k pages have the same layout, it ain’t a big thing.

via Tweetbot for iOS in reply to manishc

RT @zeldman: I’m designing a line of responsive pants.

via Tweetbot for iOS

@manishc Having said that I don’t think every website has to be responsive.

via Tweetbot for iOS in reply to manishc

@manishc By mobile layout I essentially meant responsive layout. They are no longer “the next big thing”. It’s pretty much a usual practice.

via Tweetbot for iOS in reply to manishc

@harisibrahimkv Oh you must! Also eat a lot. Plenty of excellent cheap eateries. @jackerhack

@jackerhack Many people were doing it in 4 hours. I was (guess still am) unfit + was carrying heavy rucksack. Took me 6. @harisibrahimkv

via Twitter for Mac in reply to jackerhack

@jackerhack Wasn’t that bad. Under 6 hours. Also, you have an option to trek from Dharmkot (cuts 2kms) instead of McleodGan@harisibrahimkvkv

via Twitter for Mac in reply to jackerhack

@harisibrahimkv Are you one among the 5? Triund was my first trek few years back (month of Feb) and it was amazing. @jackerhack

via Tweetbot for iOS in reply to harisibrahimkv

Sometimes I wish iOS browsers would give an advanced feature to toggle all position:fixed elements to position:static ones.

via Tweetbot for iOS

If you’re not making a mobile layout for your site, at least take care to not have any position:fixed elements below a threshold width.

@3_Sided_Coin Return tickets to SG are no longer as cheap as they used to be couple of years back. I have my doubts about laptops as well.

via Twitter for Mac in reply to 3_Sided_Coin

@3_Sided_Coin SG is (usually) more expensive than US, but is the cheapest in Asia. So the price difference is appreciable.

@3_Sided_Coin Never faced problems in getting service in Delhi/Bangalore/Chandigarh. Quality of service varies from provider to provider.

via Twitter for Mac in reply to 3_Sided_Coin

@jackerhack @gonsalves_r Our CA told us getting 1 new laptop per person is customs free, which implies getting more than one attracts duty.

via Tweetbot for iOS in reply to jackerhack

@gonsalves_r Yes you can. But you need to confirm the import/export + customs rules. @jackerhack
