Dear Diary – 4th Sep, 2009

Umm hi again,

I am very tired right now (it’s 11:23 PM) I have not been very fortunate with sleep this week But that’s normal Normal for me at least, and maybe normal for Karachian’s as well (hint: KESC) Khair

Talking about KESC, check this out: “Gharelo kachre se gas banana mumkin” (it’s possible to generate electricity from household trash?)

Articles speaks about how a Pakistan engineer has succesfully managed to use a Gas generator to to produce electricity while feeding the generator with a home-made mini Bio gas plant installed on his roof (pretty cool)

Currently, EVERY browser has an issue, Chrome has some site loading issues, Firefox is shit slow, IE 8 new tab take forever WTF?!

above was tweeted by @imhassan :d I think chrome is fine, I don’t see many page-rendering/site-loading issues Firefox is slow – that’s correct, and as some people say “it’s because of the plugins” that’s not true, even the fresh installation of Firefox can be slow It sucks to say that, but it really sucks (yes it really does) The only reason I still use it when required is because of plugins like Firebug & Web-developer

RT @dharmesh 7 Things Your Startup SHOULD Copy From 37signals http://bitly.com/3cmVA

@hameedullah forwarded this tweet, I find it interesting because I use “campfire” – a web-based group chat system which is  a product by “37 Signals” & my boss while talking about a new project always talks about how simple the chat-system is and how simple 37 signals keep their products, and I agree to it I read somewhere that you don’t have to bloat your product with all kinds of featues just remember the KISS mantra (Keep it simple, stupid)

RT @mashable Bitly Launches Jmp to Save You Two Characters http://bitl.y/17tMSQ

@razzman forwarded this tweet by @mashable (yes I don’t follow mashable myself), I have not checked Jmp and I don’t remember if bitly.com has the link preview features that original tiny-url service (tinyurlcom?) had

I think instead of just blindly following what the link’s accompanying text suggests, it’s necessary to know where the link acually leads to Sure you can trust most of those who are in your “followers” or “following” list But what if they have forwarded a link they haven’t checked themselves yet? *yes it’s very common, retweet first, check later* Khair

@imhassan also tweeted (either he tweets too much or his and mine interests are similar hmm)

Video of 747 Supertanker Pilots Risking Life to Fight California’s Mad Fires [Airplanes] http://bitly.com/gTEiJ

Video is awesome obviously, but the comments are like cherry on top:

WrecklessRich: Can you imagine the chicks you could get, “I fly a 747 SuperSoaker, maybe you’ve seen my work on TV
GitEmSteveDave_Galactica1980: Or how you could turn a feminist rally into the worlds largest wet t-shirt contest?!?!

Facebook Fan Pages are an amazing way to interact with your readers considering you treat them well 😀

This reminds me when I used to work with DaCoolSite, it was a small site and we didn’t have much interaction but it was fun reading 2-3 comments that we used to get

I think I’ll leave now, it’s 12:06, I have to help in a friends project after I wakeup *hmm*

Should really think about keeping weekends for myself

okay last tweet for today by @RumaisaMohani
