Web Elephant

Slow-moving – Web Elephants like you browse the internet at a stately, methodical pace – just like real-world elephants who rarely see a reason to rush things.

Social – Real-world elephants and Web Elephants are both highly social. Real elephants are able to keep track of their own extended family trees and may even mourn love ones. As a Web Elephant, you often use social networking sites to keep track of your friends of family and are happy to rely on information from sites whose content is created by its users.

Adaptable – Real-world elephants owe their adaptability to their large brains and versatile trunks. As a Web Elephant you are similarly adaptable and are well-suited to carrying out several different tasks at the same time.

Smstweeted yet?

I started to use Vakow! almost a year ago but the service sadly died midway through my VTU fest tweets. The tweets were cheap at 1ps and i missed them because i could only access twitter through Echofon(formerly Twitterfox). But recently i was pointed towards SMStweet.in by @Rishi

Now Smstweet is a service created by @mayanks and you can read more about it here.
This service is good for someone like me. I registered and tried it. It costs me 50ps to Tweet. But its still anyday better than the Premium sms rates or other methods of updating on the Go! This works for me when i need to tweet badly so i guess you’ll find more ‘on the go’ tweets from me.

A New use for Twitter

Twitter, the nano blogging service started in 2006-2007, has ever since then been in the news; maybe for its pros and cons. Its emerged as a more speedier of finding out about the latest events going on as tweeters the world over addictively tweet their thoughts on their profiles.
I was introduced to Twitter by Karthik , who had joined the service and I got hooked slowly. With the huge amount of applications available to make tweeting easier soon after its release , Twitter turned into a global phenomenon. There were other twitter imitators of which hardly any have actually enjoyed the fame and usage that twitter has. The usage was so high that some months back twitter servers were constantly down and this made a lot of people try alternatives but as soon as twitter was back to normal the people were back.
The reason that am writing the post is because recently I came across the new use of twitter, that is it along with twitpic acts as an efficient quiz blog. Take Tquizzer for example. Its tweets a question a day or so and then it tweets the answer the next day. Answers will be received via DM or direct messages. It prevents other users from checking out about the answers already submitted by other users. A normal quiz blog had this problem that unless the blog comments are withheld for moderation, the comments with the answer will be displayed at the bottom of every post thus perhaps helping others answer. Not that it would be some great sin to do so. But still it spoils all the fun and prevents us from knowing who the real geniuses are. So I welcome this new use of Twitter and am sure it will succeed and we will get to see more such profiles. Cracking the questions will still be tough unless you got the right search engines and a good brain on your side 😀

update: just came to know that Tquizzer was started by an online friend Manoj 😀

The Ninja Ken : A webcomic about office life, video games, and man love

Ninja Ken is a webcomic we make in a spiral notebook. On an average day Ninja Ken will freeze himself backwards in time to stop the world from seeing Bedazzled. On a good day he saves the world from wearing pants. Come and gorge yourself on our balmy internet humor, it’s all you can eat baby.

Cool!! i found a web comic with some part of my name in it 😀
