5/28 10:15 RIP Gil Scott-Heron, the Godfather of rap. / http://bit.ly/ipnzqK and http://goo.gl/vIXCf #
5/27 9:28 How would you spend $115 million to tackle corruption in Vietnam? (Without promoting corruption) #
5/27 9:16 @ericburdette @shakkabrutha Generally (USA), any dropped helmet is no longer considered safe. A cracked one's a goner for sure #
5/27 8:48 Any sk8 companies touring VN? Saw some out-of-towners discovering some spots up by the zoo #sk8ordie #
5/26 9:06 @jjlechau @Uyenvu Hmm, how about phones (w/ tiny watch battery) that emit a loud siren/message when texted a secret code #
5/26 9:00 @ncouture Not sure I agree it's just cheaper food. Aside from imported electronics, cost of living is quite low / http://goo.gl/sehuY #
5/26 8:56 @chickamade Logging out of the OAuth provider can revoke any access tokens, although I'm not sure this is required by the spec #
5/26 5:48 The answer to what that man was speaking: not Vietnamese / http://www.saigonist.com/b/muong-language #
5/24 18:42 @trunghaiy Hey, are you using Ubercart 2? #
5/24 15:08 RT @TheEconomist: It is tough for foreign retailers to crack Vietnam, but it used to be tougher http://econ.st/jKjxCS #
5/24 14:48 RT @CTKT: Amazing animation made by Vietnamese. #impressed http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7pbHLAIFi0A&feature=share via @youtube #
5/24 14:45 @Vietnam720 @lamcaoson I had heard IKEA was opening a store in Thu Duc last July but it never happened #
5/24 6:46 @caligarn Non-skyscraper buildings, poor planning, sedans, minivans, taxis, constant road construction... cause traffic on the ground. #
5/23 5:02 To all my Vietnamese-speaking friends, can you hear and identify this what this man is saying? http://goo.gl/gpuk1 #
5/22 14:40 Stay cool: an electric jacket that keeps you cool and warm. Just what I'd been waiting for / http://goo.gl/6GEcD #
5/22 10:17 @careyz @tamkaizen That wasn't even coffee. The coffee drinks are equally as bad. #
5/21 14:36 @CTKT Apparently Ward 10 of Tan Binh District has a concentration of Khmer and Chinese people / http://goo.gl/ZlSMk #
5/21 3:38 Good news for vegetarians: beans & vegetable prices down in the past month, while meat and esp. cooking oil way up. #
5/20 14:03 @lamcaoson In the 1980s, few would have predicted vinyl record sales growing for the entire 21st century (til now). #
5/20 14:00 @nguyenhimself That's why you should buy Rapture Insurance. From me. Only 1m VND. #
5/20 7:16 @hackerspacepp How about Khmer localization for Drupal & modules? @viraak #
5/20 7:11 Clearly, there is no driving/stupidity test in VN RT @rockportrait @tuoitrenewsvn: Speed limit for cars: 5 km per hour http://bit.ly/mt8R6W #
5/20 5:49 @CyborgVillage @dylanduong Hyperinflation is a pretty tall claim. Inflation must be #1 gov priority, but this is akin to "war is imminent" #
5/19 14:19 Now you can secure your Drupal and WordPress sites using @duosecurity Duo Two-Factor Authentication: http://goo.gl/4HiRW #
5/19 14:11 @saigonnezumi @caligarn FYI, I'm growing out the hickster beard to save gallons of water daily as part of Budweiser's Grow A Beard greenwash #
5/19 13:55 @HyuKio68 1/2011 ở đây có nghĩa là BarCamp đầu tiên cùa năm 2011... để tụi mình sửa chữa cho rõ hơn #
5/19 8:25 Please RT @barcampSaigon: #BarCampSaigon registration is open for 24. July at RMIT. Register now via http://cot.ag/krxADb #
5/19 8:22 @careyz Very cool slogans. I expect the underdog will make comebacks in surprising, unrecognized ways #
5/19 6:52 @scarlettran What a joke.. too often these Groupon clones and the merchants team up to produce the appearance of a deal, but really not #
5/17 13:32 @doortomykitchen You will probably have to wait for a lot of ISPs' domain name cache to expire. It could be awhile w/o proper preparation #
5/16 13:26 So very retweet-worthy! :D RT @hcmctoday: @tomosaigon you have the best tweets on twitter. I always read what you write. :D #
5/16 12:27 @HerDailyDigest I believe there's a Kuwaiti consulate on Nguyen Dinh Chieu Street near Mac Dinh Chi (1 block down) #
5/16 10:26 @caligarn @ncouture I have a copy (a photocopy) of "first they killed my father". It's fairly sadness-inducing. Can lend if you want. #
5/16 8:52 @caligarn Violin lessons over MS-Skype! #
5/16 6:39 On the bridge next to my house, there is a half-naked man guarding a box labeled "DRIED FISH CLOTHES" (in English) #
5/15 14:32 @bryanpelz @saigonnezumi If it sounds like MEN! | TE! | DO! then it may be your neighbor slicing off heads | hands | guts #
5/15 10:17 @ChrisInCambo Hehe sorry, I hope it wasn't all the Nigerians that Vietnam kicked out awhile back ending up in Cambodia #
5/15 9:38 Cambodia becomes the next Nigeria? Got a 419 Scam email from Cambodia to claim some stashed Huynh funds #
5/14 13:33 @peoplewithideas Will you choose a local provider? VPS? #
5/14 5:40 @tamkaizen Nearly every eyeglass shop in the city sells contact lenses, all imported, and you don't need to buy a whole box #
5/12 15:53 @saigonnezumi I'm blocking traffic to your new VPS? Btw, have you looked at cloud services from VNTT in Binh Duong? #
5/12 15:51 @Ann_Ha @betoneko I mean the source of dealings with that shady FB fan dealer.. not the source for the dealer, we know who that is! #
5/12 15:49 @monsterngan I hope this person is only looking for a job, not companionship, and that they just mistranslated độc thân :) #
5/12 4:58 Just received a CV that says: "Marital status: lonely" #
5/11 15:45 @betoneko @Ann_Ha Are you familiar with the source for that story? Or was it an outsider? #
5/11 15:44 @dynamicscholar C, are you part of the junglist massive? Lighter! #
5/11 15:43 @saigonnezumi Hey... what you say? #
5/11 9:08 @Ann_Ha The Tuoi Tre article links to facebook..vn, makes it seem like FB themselves are selling fans! @betoneko #
5/11 9:02 @Ann_Ha Some companies on FB in VN with 10000+ fans recently found themselves banned for buying fans, after being reported to FB #
5/11 8:40 @ourman @SaigonSean 1st rule of being a social media expert: tell everyone on the Internet you are one (after a few weeks of reading blogs) #
5/11 7:06 Often find myself enamored at the back of a girl's head on a motorbike. If only I knew then what I'd soon see in the rearview mirror. #
5/11 6:57 @rockportrait @dukedylan I use both Seesmic web and Hootsuite, both good neither perfect. Seesmic shows conversation inline, "in reply to" #
5/11 6:54 @andrewduck I can send you some details on sponsorship levels, send me a DM #
5/11 4:25 h8sq updated to filter 4sq on Seesmic, Hootsuite. Also: black out promoted tweets on Hootsuite! http://goo.gl/I7bn6 #
5/11 3:54 @saigonnezumi How's your local VPS? Who did you go with? #
5/10 8:19 @purplematt @veryvietnam I'm w/ you - anyone in Vietnam who eats out consumes boiled and probably unboiled tap water #
5/10 8:10 @kingceejay @mr_kimpossible Behind the water puppet theater on NTMK are some bball courts. Sundays around 4, 4:30. Randoms always pick up #
5/10 8:08 @wibbly @saigonsean Haha, I'm a fan, just like I'm fond of American wheat pennies and buffalo nickels. But stores rarely give 200s as change #
5/10 7:12 @caligarn @saigonnezumi @barcampsaigon D7 still closer than Quang Trung, most schools in inner city lack large auditorium #
5/10 7:07 @dynamicscholar @Vietnam720 But it -looks- like progress! #
5/10 5:41 @veryvietnam Many households use water tanks to store tap water (pressure, outages). These tanks are often unsanitary. #
5/9 11:59 I wonder if Vietnam's inflation would grow slower if people used credit cards more, so prices could go up less than 1000 VND at a time #
5/9 7:41 @mrcerulean Thx for taking the bait ;) My internal liquid cooling system fails at 35+C, I seek solutions that take advantage of covered pits #
5/9 6:29 @wibbly Need to pick your brain on this topic too sometime! Was thinking ice packs in shoes.. but how to comfortably ice the groin, longish? #
5/9 6:27 @CTKT @PedroInSaigon @TylerWatts I played laser tag there a few years back. As fun as anywhere. Sweat balls using other people's sweaty gear #
5/9 4:33 Weather: It's too many F'n Cs out there. If only there was some way to install liquid cooling in the armpits. #
5/7 19:23 @kingceejay @mr_kimpossible PMH a bit far, but a couple of us shoot hoops next to Tao Dan Park in D1 on Sunday afternoons, wanna join? #
5/7 8:32 @dynamicscholar Clearly a lot of unscrupulous businesses increase prices merely because they can, e.g. services where major cost is labor #
5/7 8:30 @dynamicscholar Oh, totally agreed. The serious problem of inflation - prices never go down, and deflation is a danger economies also fear #
5/6 10:37 @stickyinhanoi I salivate over garlic (and ginger) in my fish sauce #
5/6 8:15 RT @duosec: New blog post - Breaking down the probable LastPass breach: http://goo.gl/FoKPt #
5/6 8:07 @dynamicscholar My understanding is VN gas prices are heavily subsidized, and the pump price isn't set by market, to soften +/- price shocks #
5/6 8:03 @trangthule @betoneko Is pho ngheu a proper pho? What about pho xao okonomiyaki at Hachiya? #
5/5 6:19 @madsmonsen Could be benign, could be a monkey-in-the-middle attack. Could be TweetDeck changing owners too. #
5/4 20:11 @scarlettran That's so cool they have a "cyberculture" class, and give credit for it.. changes my opinion of RMIT #
5/4 12:30 #4VN! RT @techcrunch: Brammo To Make Electric Motorcycles That Feel More Like Gas-Powered http://tcrn.ch/mCYS7c #
5/4 12:27 @barijoe I sincerely hope someone got hired by listing Klingon language abilities #
5/4 6:19 @scarlettran GITS long precedes either of those 2! Where do they teach cyber class? #
5/3 20:50 @betoneko Fast food at fast food prices :) #
5/3 20:49 @shakkabrutha I could name a name but that's missing the point: these deals are happening secretly to the benefit of developers #
5/3 7:36 Eating deep-fried maki-rolls and omu-rice at a 'teen' bubble tea shop, some girls are playing Uno :) #
5/2 14:22 @shakkabrutha It's a secret, they don't want people to know!, want people to think they're doing well #
5/2 11:39 VN developers are secretly selling off highrises at firesale prices to fund building more over-priced housing with low demand #
5/2 6:26 OBL dead! Re: retaliation, glad I live in one of the only countries in SE Asia without war, extreme religion, and Muslim separatists #
5/1 14:27 Why isn't there a strongly branded mid-range hotel chain in VN with memorable name, convenient locations, consistent service? #
5/1 6:38 @anhlt84 Thanks for the asterisk.vn link! If running Asterisk in the office, I worry about power outages.. #
5/1 5:51 Gơơgle.vn: VNNIC lets any non-foreigner register .vn domains w/ diacritics for free; disputes must be handled in VN court. Reckless NIC? #
5/1 4:21 @barijoe haha, averaging over 1 murder per day in NYC so they're busy (same in Chicago, but far less people/detectives, be careful) #
