Twitter is a good tool for customer support if used carefully.

I recently moved to NYC and I just got a pre-paid T-Mobile just to try it out how it goes. And this is what I tweeted and got a reply back from T-Mobile.

I think they might have got hundred of tweets a day. So they might have slipped. The first when I read this I quickly scrolled up to see if I got a typo. But they’re right though I chose T-Mobile. Just a little laugh for me today.

Knockout.js virtual elements are being stripped out from mobile.

7.10.2014 Posted in Javascript No Comments

This rarely happens and you would be surprised what is the cause of this. Recently, I have just finished a mobile site using knockout.js. I have used a fair amount of Virtual Elements in Knockout.js. But weirdly enough one day my Manager came in and talk to my tech lead (@sragu) that the site is not working. We quickly checked with our live site and everything was ok yet the site from his phone wasn’t working at all.

We spent quite a long time to find out the cause of this. We cleared the cache. We restarted the phone. Tried different browsers. Luckily, then we found out this thread from Stackoverflow.com.

The cause of this is that Vodafone corporate network stripped out HTML comments to save and optimise the bandwidth.

The solution is to set Cache-Control to no-transform and the problem solved. If you have the same problem as me then this is the solution.

Hidden flea market in Istanbul, Turkey

20.07.2014 Posted in Knowledges No Comments

Love flea market? Love antiques? And you are in Istanbul, you should try out this place if you like antique stuff and what to kill a couple hours on a Sunday in Istanbul. The market opens every Sunday. I don’t know what time but I was there from 12pm – 3pm. I don’t really know how to get there by public transportation, but you can get a taxi to there from Şişli Metro station. It’s only a couple minutes away by taxi.
