In case you were wondering why my blogging has been irregular of late...

...look what went to the printer today.

The subtitle is stolen from a blogpost by Anasua.One hundred and four pages. Ninety-three articles, poems and sketches. Two hundred in-jokes. Literally countless phone calls, emails, swear words and high-fives. Three all-night formatting sessions. Twenty litres of Coke. One day before end-semester exams. One imminent and cataclysmic drop in CGPA.

But worth it. Worth every goddamn moment.

You must be really tired to have left a blog post unjustified. :P

So when can we expect to get our hands on the issue?

Oh. My. God.
I want so badly.

kroswami said...

also one double cheese cheesy burst which EVERYONE flicked!

Tommy said...

Yay!

I'm curious: what typeface(s) did you use for text?

Karthy said...

also, one dramatic sprint to the bus stop hollering Sanjay (da)! at the top of your voice.

The cheery largely delusional part of my brain also chooses to skip the CGPA bit.

Abhiroop said...

Why hollering Sanjay da near the Bus Stop? Please temme the pdf hadnt screwed up again?

Ok new rule: Adobe Systems should be bombed. And fast....

Larry, No!
Do you think I'd survive without photoshop, or is that your intention???

@ಕವನ: Nearer comatose than tired, at the time of posting. Having admitted the mistake, I must say the superiority of justified text is something I'm not really convinced about myself. Sometimes the ragged lines seem to look better. But either practice should be followed uniformly.

@scheherazade: And so you should.

@kroswami: What's a flicked double cheese cheesy burst or two among friends?

@Tommy: Plain ole Times New Roman for the most part. Tw Cen MT for headings. I'd have mailed a soft copy to you, but your typography-sensitive soul would be appalled. It was a very rushed job, so despite all the hyperbole, there are typographical gaffes everywhere.

@Karthy: I won't forget that sprint in a hurry. Talk about dramatic timing.

@Abhiroop: No, no. The sprint was my fault. Actually the other thing wasn't Adobe's fault either. It had more to do with the accursed conversion software.
