Someone on my timeline is willingly moving from Bangalore to Delhi. And that’s not because of a better job offer.

This is rare.

@BlueTokaiCoffee Maybe your website is not optimised well, or maybe a better shared hosting service would’ve been wiser.

via Tweetbot for Mac in reply to BlueTokaiCoffee from Siri Fort, New Delhi

@BlueTokaiCoffee Do you really need a VPS? If not, go for a shared hosting. Else, speak to someone who can take this up part time.

via Tweetbot for Mac in reply to BlueTokaiCoffee from Siri Fort, New Delhi

@BlueTokaiCoffee …either in house, or otherwise. But if you do go for unmanaged VPS, I’d recommend them. I’ve had a good experience so far.

via Tweetbot for Mac in reply to BlueTokaiCoffee from Siri Fort, New Delhi

@BlueTokaiCoffee Unless you’re okay paying a lot for a managed VPS, I won’t recommend going for a VPS unless you have someone to manage it…

Maybe I’m committing a sin here, but this first iteration of  Watch looks a tad ugly for 2014. Feels like I’m looking at the first iPhone.

@rashmiswamy @rasagy Okay okay, I’ll have to make some time for this. *fingers crossed*

via Tweetbot for iΟS in reply to rashmiswamy from Mahavir Enclave, New Delhi

@_karan No. You need to prove your nationality (Passport, Voter Id) at the immigration desk at the road border and obtain a permit.

via Tweetbot for iΟS from Mahavir Enclave, New Delhi

@rasagy Let’s see if I do end up making the effort. It’ll be very hard to articulate the experiences in a manner that does justice to it.

Also, the trip was such a leg-a-thon. Not a single day went without covering at least 10kms by foot. The highest would be ~30kms in a day.
