thank god, i still have this wordpress account. was a surprise when the passowrd worked. i am right nw in my Bros hostel from where i can access wordpress. thoughts come flooding. sometimes i fall asleep to be woken up by ‘krishna nee begane..’ in my mobile. calls from office. i am bunking office for the onam season. 😀

spelling doesnt work. am i dislexic? i havent seen TZP yet. want to se it. now i am at bros hostel, working freom sanjus machine, i can see TZp-it is in here. but i prefer to go for nayakan, kamal hasssan’s epic movie-kinda remake of godfather.

well, the news is that i have decided to go back to design. i am fed up with this coding shit. earlier, i used to wonder why they spent lots of time infront of those machines churning out huge volumes of code. even i did. i still do. now i know their motives and the incentives. but sorry, these days i dont find any drive in that stuff. how to restart designing?

here is a list. its for me.

1. watch rock on
2. learn HTML
3. Watch more movies. watch pursiut of happyness once more.
4. buy a secondhand desktop. ask bro to get me one. search in BB.
5. net conn. i know shareef will get it done. no worries. 😀 he is such a cool dude.
6. think
7. get the music right.
8. now, *start dreaming*
9. design.

thats it. dreaming is such a good thing. just take off, fly around. you need some good music to go along. rock on works fine for me now. i am listening to an indian band, Thermal and a quarter also. they have some good songs out there.

love you all… 🙂

Links Roundup April 3, 2006

Ok guys, after a long time comes this post. I’ve been a kinda lazy, and was into a more interesting thing called orkut. After a long time, I cud see my collegemates active in a web 2.0 thing[Of course gmail was already there with them]. It has been about a year since I joined orkut, and was not much active there. Now suddenly my friends began to flock together there at orkut and I too joined them in the fray. It was fun, and was a major discussion topic even in college where such net/geeky things were taboo.

So what should this post be about? I haven’t decided yet. I have given the heading ‘Links Roundup’ already. I have a collection right now at hand.

Like the way I stayed away from this blog, I was off from my regular places (like del.icio.us, popurls, digg etc and blogs) also. The only thing that was regular was deviantart.com which has become nothing less than a passion these days. Thehot news is that deviantart is going to be bought by myspace.com.

Ok, here I give you the links. Most of them are old 😀 pardon me, but they are eally interesting. Here we go.

Design Resource Collection
The first thing is a wonderful website created by Gustavo Machado. Designeducation.ca features about seven main categories like general, illustration, advertising/design, photography, typography etc with several subcategories in each section. Each section is rich with one of the web’s most comprehensive collection of resources and is growing everyday. And you can be a part of it by contributing/submitting a site that you have noticed good in resources. Apart from links, there is a big collection of ebooks relating to various subjects like branding/corporate identity, user-centered design etc. It also features other topics like Industrial design, Fashion design etc.

So go there and have a look around.

SEO Tools Collection
Meanwhile here we have a great collection of SEO tools at seocompany.ca. They have been ranked accordingly and a total of 151 tools have been featured. You can submit your tool (it will feature in their list if your tool is approved by the team) against a refundable review fee of $5.

Free Fonts
Vitaly Friedman has written about 25 best free quality fonts in this post. I have noticed this post long ago and wanted to write about it but couldnt do it till now. His post has been helpful to me, and now I think I have done paid back the debt (but only in parts :D) to him by telling everyone about his beautiful collection. Its just awesome, just go there and choose your pick.

With this we have come to the end of a boring lecture [yaaaawwwnn….] ha!
Meanwhile, I am testing a new product called swicki. Will tell you the results in the next post.

Edit(4th July): The site designeducation.ca is up again.
