Someone stole my mobile. Mobile I bought off my own money *sob* *sob* *sob*
grow up dude & welcome to the real world - viki saigal
Exactly what I thought. Guess I've been too naive :( - Yuvi from IM
Damn, viki, that's harsh. I'm sorry, Yuvi. - Anika
A lof of reactions i get have been negative. "You were too careless" :( - Yuvi from IM
That stinks. I know when I our car got stolen if someone had said that to me, I would have punched them in the face. LOL I mean, don't expect people to feel sorry for you, but when they're smug it's a little much to take, especially when you have to shell out more money. Did you have insurance on the phone? - Anika
You can insure a phone? That's news to me - Yuvi from IM
Some carriers do, if not, try private companies. Usually called repair and theft insurance. Look it up. - Amit Morson
sorry to hear that yuvi. hope you got the IMEI - AJ Batac
ok sorry yuri - maybe i was harsh...but seriously dude... sob sob sob ? look it at leastit wasnt your wallet with all your cards n cash - positive side ! - viki saigal
Err, I figure you seriously expected me to go off into a corner and let loose a few liters of tears? *seriously*? I'm off looking at the GData APIs now ;) - Yuvi from IM
But thing is, I've never had anything very valuble stolen from me before, so it was kinda like a shock - Yuvi from IM
When I lost my mobile, I know who took it but even then I was not able to get it back (even after complaining in the police station). - Sudar
So when are you getting your new mobile? - Sudar
Bummer. - DGentry
@Yuvi, it's time to get a new mobile which runs on Android ;) - Sudar
Well, maybe. Depends. DAMN - Yuvi from IM
Just a very late update - We caught the jerk who stole phones (not just mine). We recovered 6 phones, and kicked him out of the college :D - Yuvi
Resolution! - Derrick
Wow, amazing you found the twerp. - DGentry from Android
Boo to mean people who steal things. :( - Alix May
Yay! I love seeing bad guys get caught! - Spidra Webster
next time you are around the SF bay area, drop me a twit - kartik vaithyanathan
Sure will do. Happy new year. :) - Sudar
Leaving for HackFest :) Activated GPRS, let's see if I can use it. ANyone there, ping me
All the beset for your HackFest. Hope you make some good contributions to the kernel ;) - Sudar
@sudarmuthu I weigh 70 kg now, owing to diarrhoea!
Oops! You seem to have problem with your digestive system, every now and then. Did you consult a good doctor? - Sudar
Yes this time I did! The problem is junk food. After a good motion scan... Everything is with the food that i take outside. Nothing bad!Good News! Leaving India on a H1B. Got to get the VISA interview cleared this month end. Then will be flying in october. Regards, Rajesh - Rajeshwaran from email
OAuth isn't really *that* complicated once you get the hang of it :)
I guess it applies to most other things in life ;) - Sudar
Jesse Stay
Recently my cousin's head was run over by a car. This is what's left of her helmet. My cousin completely survived because of this helmet. Please think of this before riding a bike without a helmet next time!
bike helmet.jpg
I've ridden only once without a helmet in as long as I can remember. Felt vulnerable! - Adam Loving from StumbleRead
It's true. They work. - Andrew Feinberg
wow... that's amazing. how old is your cousin jesse? - dave mcclure
dave, my cousin's 30, just 1 year younger than me - Jesse Stay from twhirl
You can read her story, in her own words here. I'm inspired: - Jesse Stay from twhirl
This happened to a friend of mine at the beginning of the month. He didn't do so good in the accident, but the helmet obviously saved his life. Thankfully is on his way home tomorrow: - Steve Lacey
I used to ride my bike without the helmet even though it is mandatory in Chennai, India. But after reading this I am not even going to the next street in my bike without helmet. - Sudar
I never wear a helmet. When hearing things like this, I always think of this article. In the Netherlands no one wears a helmet. It seems safe to me. - Peter Stuifzand
I was hit while riding to work in summer 2006 & did not want anyone to touch my helmet at all costs. If my brain was scrambled, I did not want anyone to touch my egg:) I highly recommend a helmet especially if you think you will not need one! Mine was almost the same color too & manufacturer, but there is no conspiracy there:) - Roney Smith
Bicyclists/motorcyclists that don't wear helmets are better called future organ donors - Brian Sullivan
Thanks for sharing. I ride often at traffic time between cars. always wear my helmet...itsg good to know that It does work :) - jonathan from twhirl
that's incredible... - Jamie Allen from twhirl
Wow, glad to hear your friend is doing well after that. I agree, helmets save lives. Regardless, I've many intentional close-calls by drivers who don't want to share the road. Unfortunately, this is the common attitude where I live (southern US). - pete
we wear helmets for everything: mtb, snowboarding, wakeboarding, skateboarding & even surfing - skulls are fragile why not put a protective layer around it (i also try real hard to not ride on streets - a high percentage of drivers are oblivious to bike riders)... - mike "glemak" dunn
I always ride in my helmet and stay to bike lanes as much as possible. Nice to know the safety tools work. Now, if I can just avoid that NYPD cop with a penchant for knocking people off their bikes. Hopefully, he won't transfer to LAPD. - Jason Toney
Peter Stuifzand, my cousin would be dead if she did not wear her helmet. That article is BS. Wear your helmet! - Jesse Stay from twhirl
Point blank. You are a moron if you ride without a helmet. Sorry, but that's true and you're just going to play into Darwinian theory should you continue to ride without one. Any 'real' cyclist (e.g - you've been hit by a car - and yes, I have been) will tell you this without reservation. Helmets work without a doubt. - AJ Kohn
I survived a nasty motorcycle crash in my youth and would also be dead without that helmet - which cracked in 2 like an egg (that would have been my head, as the nurse aptly put it!). - Susan Beebe
A friend who's a cop refers to motorcycles as donorcycles whenever she sees someone riding without a helmet. I figure that applies for bicycles, too. - Ha3rvey (on hiatus)
I was on the way to work Monday morning while it was raining, when the third car in front of me spun out of control and flipped twice into a ditch. When I pulled over to help her out she was just fine. She only had a scratch on her left shoulder from the broken window and was not hurt anywhere else. THE REASON: She was wearing her seat belt. It's nice to hear that these devices are actually helping us! - David Cook
Wow! I wear mine! Didn't for years - I was lucky I guess. Thanks for posting that! - matthew hunt
OMG... Jesse, do you have a link other than here on FF? I have friends whose kids refuse to wear theirs, and seeing this may help. - Cyndy
Cyndy why not just link here - - Brian Sullivan
Dutch don't wear helmets and they don't get killed by cars - Peter Stuifzand
Actually they do get killed by cars. But culturally they are not inclined to wear helmets. - Brian Sullivan
Cyndy, with this being dug out of the grave, I just noticed your question. That particular picture is from my cousin's blog here: You can read the full story here: Search for "run over by car" and you can read about her entire ordeal. - Jesse Stay
My brother would not be alive today if he did not wear his helmet while riding his motorcycle; please wear a helmet! - Sandra
man - Shey
If it's nice enough to ride, I probably won't be bothering with the human-powered bike any longer. I always wear a helmet on my gas-powered bike. - MiniMage
As long as we won't have mountains, we Dutch will not wear those things. Otherwise we won't be able to recognise the tourists on bikes. - Ton Zijp
Thanks for sharing - I had a mishap with a car, wasn't wearing a helmet at the time, was lucky. If they don't see you, it doesn't matter either way. Wear the helmet! - Rick Bucich
This isn't as extreme as this but when I fell off my bike onto a sidewalk and broke my arm, I thought I was fine for a while. Later, my dad noticed that the whole front of my helmet was all scratched up and the visor in front was torn off! I realized that if I wasn't wearing my helmet on the 2 minute trip down the road, I probably wouldn't be typing this comment right now! Not that I'd be dead but I would have suffered some head damage, limiting my ability to do most things. - Kevin Lyons
Helmets for cyclists are mandatory in Australia. Still gives me the shudders when I'm travelling and see bareheaded bicyclists on the roads. - Kate Foy

I'm unable to digest the fact that Mac windows don't have a maximize option. Why is that so?

I should learn to get up early in morning as the good old days. Nothing is as productive as early mornings.
I am getting up early these days after I abandoned TV :) - Sudar

who added my name to the cricket team? all i can do is run after the ball
[all i can do is run after the ball] That's why you were being added to the team. hint! hint! - Sudar
Holy cow, is going to be open-sourced I *might* have a look at source code and steal a few stuff for YOURLS ;)

Blackberry 8900, although I cannot wait for the 9700, T-Mobile needs a 3G Blackberry device like yesterday :) - Nithin Jawali
@Stelian: To use it with the operator I prefer here in Sweden, I have to jailbreak and unlock it. And its always scary to see if you made all settings right, and don't pay per MB of data you use, or roams of another network etc. - Gustav Holmström
iPhone 3GS - I dumped a BB Bold and I am so happy now! - Giorgio

Since yesterday is running nginx :D The site surely feels very fast! Do give it a spin and let me know.
Did nginx gave any problem with WordPress permalink structure and mod rewrite rules? - Sudar
It would be interesting to know how the rewrite rules are working. Seems everyone is facing the problem(me too) and the solution works for some and not for others. Do reply. - Sujay
Hey it checked out says Error to database. Just wanted to let you know!! - Sujay

From my inbox: Whatever you give a woman, she will make greater. If you give her sperm, she'll give you a baby. If you give her a house, she'll give you a home. If you give her groceries, she'll give you a meal.. If you give her a smile, she'll give you her heart. She multiplies and enlarges what is given to her. So, if you give her any crap, be...
Such the philosopher. Um, you didn't take your wife to China did you? - Rick Emery
From the great philosopher Leo ! - Chris Ames
It seems Leo got this in his E-mail. - Brent - Yes I am
Heard this from a customer the other day, but he ended it, "So don't giver her any crap." It's funnier that way. - Jeremiah Green
In my house you have to give me the groceries to get a meal, but you can give my wife flour and sugar and she'll give you back bliss in a cookie. - dthree

Am I the only one who thinks this quote is a bit male chauvinistic? The quote has a wrapper that appears to make women look great but underneath, it stereotypes women as a typical "wife" in a submissive male chauvinistic system. Again, my 2 cents based on a cursory reading on a hectic day. - Krishnan Subramanian
Good point. Groceries and meal are chauvinistic, among others. Sorry, but the theme had good intent. - Dan Barber

Any Wordpress geeks or gurus up tonight that would be willing to lend a hand?
Tell me what needs to be done in WordPress and I will try my best to help you. - Sudar
Sudar, you don't know how much I appreciate you. But I think I just got it figured out. - Keith - @tsudo
Migrated my website tonight to a new host and I'm still new to some of the backend stuff, had a problem with headers - Keith - @tsudo
apparently the migration added some trailing spaces to the wp_config file, disaster averted. Thank you anyway friend. - Keith - @tsudo
Ohh great!, nice to know that you figured it out yourself :) Do ping me if you need my assistance anytime. - Sudar
You are too kind sir. I'm much better with routers/switches/firewalls than sql and php - Keith - @tsudo
I have only one true skill. Google-fu - Keith - @tsudo
.. and that's more than enough to solve any problem :) - Sudar
A few low level bit hacks every programmer should know! -
Great blog with lot of interesting articles. I ended up reading all his previous articles as well. Thanks! - Sudar
Yeah, I also tweeted about that. I found this blog through reddit... - jaskirat
I read that tweet also. Even I am subscribing to some of them now. - Sudar
I subscribed to only two, was lazy to look through all, why dont you post all the blogs you are subscribing to, i ll subscribe to them as well. :D - jaskirat

Does anybody use a checkout of the wordpress svn trunk for a production blog? does this make it easier to update? I'm considering doing this, but I have no clue if it's a crappy idea or not. -
I did it (stable) until wordpress offered the update feature from within. It was fast and worked smoothly. No problem at all - Nikos Anagnostou
I did it on my main blog (if you consider it as production). But if the site is important, then don't check out trunk, use the latest stable version. - Sudar
I did it on my personal blog, but I wouldn't recommend it for anything that you need to stay up. I never had any problems, but you never know. Now that there's the auto-update, I don't bother any more. Unless there's a feature / bug fix in the dev build you need - Glenn Slaven
Today is the decision day... Keeping my fingers crossed...
What are you going to decide about? Anyways, do your best. - Sudar
Easy Retweet now supports creating shorturls using your own API key -

@sudarmuthu wow! Why hitting the gym suddenly?
I always wanted to hit gym, but it is just now I got time to go. - Sudar

@sudarmuthu BESIDES you could spend that money on buying a domain and satiating your hunger for domain names :P heh

Is there a WordPress plug-in to automatically push new posts to FriendFeed via the API?
Instead of just having a new post show up as a title and a link when the system gets around to checking your feed, you could push an excerpt and an image to FriendFeed the instant the post goes up. - Ken Sheppardson
There is a WordPress plugin to support SUP, which would accomplish the "instant" part of your goal: To get images you just need to support MediaRSS (I believe there is also a WordPress plugin for that). - Benjamin Golub
Cool, where do I sign...........? - Kevin J Hatton
Nice idea! - Don Bonaddio
Nice. I will use this... Thank ;) - Semih Masat™
Benjamin: I knew somebody'd mention SUP :-) I'd rather not add some intermediate service/protocol, I just want the ability push directly via a single plug-in, preferably with a UI component that gives you control over what image or images are added, select the excerpt, select what groups the post goes to, etc. - Ken Sheppardson
What I want is probably similar to what Ken you want - something to push the title & link& image as a post, and an excerpt as a comment to FriendFeed, which would then go to Twitter. The group selecter would be ultra cool on top of that - guruvan (Rob Nelson)
Yeah, I'm using PUB-Sup, but what would be even more interesting is something that pushes, and tracks comments of the pushed post at the same time. I'd like to have real-time comments on each blog post. - Jesse Stay
Matthew: Yes. - Ken Sheppardson
Just found it, looking into it now - guruvan (Rob Nelson)
WP-Sup ( + MediaRSS ( plugins will do the job - Bwana ☠
Rob: Cool. Looks like Sudar's around Maybe he'll drop by... - Ken Sheppardson
Just sent him a tweet. Hopefully he'l join us :) Looks to be in india - guruvan (Rob Nelson)
OK, I get it, guys. I know how SUP works and I know you can use SUP and MediaRSS to accomplish what I want. But I don't want to ping some API to tell it to go pull something from a feed... I want to make a single call to the FriendFeed API designed for creating entries - Ken Sheppardson
Shouldn't be that hard to build. You can do it Ken :) - Bwana ☠
Bwana: I think Sudar has already. :-) I'm going to put his implementation through its paces over the weekend. - Ken Sheppardson
Oh ok cool... Hmmm.. I'd try it, but I'm not sure how it'll affect Backtype Connect on my blog. I want to be sure the FF comments get pulled in correctly. - Bwana ☠
Bwana: not sure exactly what you want to try - but in general any entry that links to your posts will be connected by BT Connect -- we do of course try our best to cut out things like auto snippets of text that appear as comments when using the FF bookmarklet. - Mike Montano
Mike - I just wanted to be sure if I remove my RSS feed from FriendFeed and use this solution, will my comments get pulled back into my blog. I gather the plugin would have to only link to my blog from FriendFeed, and Backtype does the rest - Bwana ☠
Yeah, it seems like once the plugin creates the entry on FriendFeed with a link to your blog post, you're home free, no matter how that entry is created. - Ken Sheppardson
I like I like - Michael Ehline
Hi Guys, nice to know that the Plugin (Post2FF) which I created around 9 months back is of use to someone :) I am take the code dust it off and will add the new features that you requested. Stay tuned :) - Sudar
Awesome! Thank you very much Sudar! - guruvan (Rob Nelson)
Of note, Sudar: it would be most handy if we could select the link that is published on the entry - either the linkt ot the blog entry or the link. (wasn't clear to me if the API actually supports this?) On most of my blog posts, I'd like to direct people straight to the post, but someone or some entries might prefer linking to the FriendFeed post/discussion - guruvan (Rob Nelson)
I am done with the modifications to my Plugin to add new features like choosing the room to which the link to be posted, selecting images etc. Will release it after completing the testing. If anyone is willing to do beta testing, just ping me. - Sudar
I'd love to give it a try :-) - guruvan (Rob Nelson)
Yay Sudar with his remedy to dust off (Post2FF) - Janaree Nore
Sudar: Ping. :-) - Ken Sheppardson
@Ken, Please DM your email address and I will send the Plugin for beta testing. If everything goes well, I will be able to release the Plugin tomorrow by this time. - Sudar
Sudar, sounds interesting. :-) - Kol Tregaskes
So guys, finally I have updated my Post to FriendFeed Plugin with support for rooms. You can get the new version at - Sudar
Also let me know if you face any issues. - Sudar
I want it thanks Sudar! - Robert Freeze
Are we able to do the revere post from FF -> Wordpress, not as a rss thing but as a post? - Chirag Chamoli
@Chirag, I am not sure if I understood your question. Can you explain it a bit? - Sudar
nice! like the idea Ken. - .LAG liked that
I'm not sure to have understood the question: I saw that Feedburner now works in realtime, so you just have to use that instead of the standard feed - Roberto from fftogo
I wanted to understand If I can autopost from friendfeed to Wordpress. I am using the rss feed in the sidebar, instead I want the stuff to be added to wordpress as a post. - Chirag Chamoli from email
@Chirag, You can install WP-O-Mattic WordPress Plugin ( and use the FF rss as input to publish from FF -> WordPress. (I haven't tried it, so not sure if it will work 100%) - Sudar
@Sundar: Thanks I will start working on that. - Chirag Chamoli
I am interested in using Sundar's plugin. Is it compatible with WordPress 2.8.3? - Skyler Call
@Skyler Call, It should be compatible, since it doesn't use any functions which were changed in 2.8+ Anyways I will check it and will bump up the supported version in readme file. - Sudar
Is there any working plugin for wp 3.4.x version? - mak
Jesse, without demeaning you personally, this is false and ridiculous. FriendFeed is a domain, a specific one, and I chose the primary domain. Google Reader is a subdomain or directory, and you chose the one that, as you show, nobody uses. The Alexa data you showed for FriendFeed illustrated something that nobody is experiencing. This isn't gamesmanship. It's just wrong, again. - Bruce Hennings
