...there are actually many options by now, the VPS landscape has changed considerably since I last had a good look.—@marjoleink
@marjoleink Please report what you find. I’d like to do a VPS, but they’re all too expensive for any real amount of memory.—@ndw

LOL! RT @simonstl If Instagram went for a billion, would Instakilo go for a trillion? No, I don't want to imagine that either.—@ndw

@davidpflaherty I doubt any of them were taken on a mobile phone back then. So I’m confused.—@ndw
@ndw i was trying to imply that you must have made a concerted effort to construct the panoramics- thanks for sharing with these biased eyes—@davidpflaherty

Lack of better Android phones (Galaxy Nexus, Note) on @tmobile is becoming very frustrating.—@ndw
@ndw Not to worry, HTC One S is coming at the end of this month (around the 25th). It's getting great reviews. http://t.co/aos0kw0o —@kingargyle
@ndw You can Galaxy Nexus untethered, no? It certainly works on tmobile, since I'm using it.—@tabatkins
@tabatkins Yes. I suppose I could just buy an unlocked phone and swap SIMs. But the full list prices are a bit steep.—@ndw
@ndw @tabatkins Surely paying up front is cheaper than paying in pieces? Or is the U.S. carries system so bad that even that's not true?—@hsivonen
@hsivonen @tabatkins Last time around, the phone was cheap(er) w/a 2yr contract, but the monthly rate was the same w/ or w/o a phone.—@ndw
@ndw @tabatkins Same monthly rate without a phone is a pretty serious regulatory bug considering that competition hasn't fixed it by now.—@hsivonen
@hsivonen @ndw @tabatkins Not anymore, we're using $30/mo (no contract) with T-Mobile USA, unlimited data without long-term committment!—@ariyahidayat
@hsivonen @tabatkins I suppose. Maybe I misunderstood. They work pretty hard to make it unintelligible. I can only fight so many battles...—@ndw

Wondering about providing an estimate without units on the numbers.—@JeniT
@JeniT I've got some opinions agile estimating... the main one being don't bother. It's a waste of everyone's time.—@andrewwelch
@JeniT The answer is always 42.—@docum3nt
@docum3nt But 42 isn't in the Fibonacci sequence! Maybe it's not the answer after all!!—@JeniT
@JeniT @docum3nt I had never noticed that. That’s horrible. I don’t understand the Multiverse *at all* now.—@ndw

If your mail is apparently going into someone’s spam folder, how do you send them email to tell them to check their spam folder?—@ndw
@ndw Is this today's version of Schrödinger's cat?—@shelleypowers
@shelleypowers I guess so. Unfortunately some spammer forged my email address recently. And I won’t change it. Ever.—@ndw
@ndw @shelleypowers I've had people forge my email for spamming in the past. Any spam service that is server-siding on address is wrong.—@morbusiff
@morbusiff @ndw Yup, same here. That's why I'm in process of switching everything over to gmail email—@shelleypowers

Formatting code samples with line numbers is tricky because it can interfere with cut&paste. Tables seem ugly. Better solutions?—@ndw
@ndw Show/hide line numbers with JS so ppl can remove them for c&p? Not sure that isn't uglier than tables though! :-}—@j4
@ndw I've seen several people use http://t.co/0tl62G7I which does a line number/text wrap version and a raw version for cut&paste—@efreese
@ndw see the HTML in google code, there's no problem with the line numbers : e.g: http://t.co/Wic8GUBf —@yokofakun
.@yokofakun Ok. That’s the tables approach; it certainly does work and is simpler in a lot of ways. Just get over my aversion to tables?—@ndw
@ndw With Virtual Formatting copy/paste just works - line numbers can also follow the indentation - like in a document http://t.co/nC1PqII4 —@pgfearo
@pgfearo Ok. What’s the source for that page? Can you point me to it on the web?—@ndw
@ndw turns out Blogger simply converts pasted RTF margins from my editor print preview to margin-left CSS style properties—@pgfearo
@ndw Not sure about the HTML - I just paste rtf from my editor print-preview into blogger and it does the rest - I'll mock something up...—@pgfearo
@ndw Just posted a test blog with line-numbered + indented XSLT code - it's at: http://t.co/tWNGH4Lg —@pgfearo
@pgfearo But when I cut-and-paste that, I get line numbers in the cut-and-paste, that’s what I’m trying to avoid.—@ndw
@ndw ah...now I follow you - we could do with a 'no-copy' CSS property, or perhaps there's an SVG solution...—@pgfearo
.@lcahlander Hmph. That’s tables too. I’m seeing a pattern.—@ndw
@ndw GitHub is also tables. I think it's perfectly "fine", if a bit barfulent.—@abdelazer

on the blog: JSON or XML: Just Decide http://t.co/HwpwRk5P —@mnot
@mnot Where do you stand on relating JSON (or XML) and HTML views?—@JeniT
@JeniT Oof. That's a big question. Do you mean in "APIs" (I know, bad term), or on the open Web?—@mnot
@mnot See eg https://t.co/VywPZFd7 and https://t.co/Skr5qwc0 Just wondered what you thought.—@JeniT
@JeniT Think that's fine and should be encouraged in many cases. Tho for some APIs the security issues of .js make it a non-starter. YMMV—@mnot
@mnot I like the pattern where the "API" and the website are found at the same place, each page having a JSON (or whatever) version.—@JeniT
Basically, “yeah.” RT @mnot on the blog: JSON or XML: Just Decide http://t.co/Ru71Gk57 —@ndw
@ndw @mnot re JSON or XML ... pretty obtuse argument IMHO. JSON lacks data binding tools so its better for web service data ?—@DALDEI
@DALDEI @ndw JSON *is* data binding. Just not to design-time objects. It's dynamic, just like the Web.—@mnot
@mnot @ndw JSON is only data binding in JavaScript. By itself its just markup.—@DALDEI
@DALDEI @ndw and Python, and an easy mapping to many many others. "markup" is a very misleading term for it.—@mnot
@DALDEI @ndw @mnot Seems to me the conclusion from the observations should be "don't do stupid brittle data binding with your XML (or JSON)"—@mathling
@mathling @ndw @mnot Agree. The problem is in Data Binding not in XML or JSON. Data Binding just produces an army of unnecessary objects—@DALDEI
