Limitations of twitter

This one's for the twitter users out there.
What limitations do you face using twitter? I for one would like to be
able to see all posts from a single user in one place, be able to post
pics, have twitter convert the URL into a tinyURL before submitting
the post so I know how much more typing space is left....

What limitations do you face?

Committing changes to a database

Hi everyone

I am currently reviewing a desktop (i.e. NOT web) application that
involves mostly viewing and changing records in a database (via a
nice GUI front end).

In some places, changes are "committed" as soon as you enter them, a
bit like how Microsoft Access operates.

Contact me or recomend me list of IxD agencies that do embedded software

I may be in the market for agencies that can do embedded software design and
hardware IxD.
Please don't reply if your portfolio only has desktop/webtop and mobile
software. Yes, mobile apps and software is not what I'm looking for and
doesn't qualify.

If you've worked with agencies that you can recommend, all the better.
Feel free to send offline.

Highly Usable Forum ?

Hi all,

everyone of you has seen online forums/bulleting boards based on board
engines (phpBB, vBulletin etc). They are usually nearly awful from the
user experience poit of view. But I'm sure there are custom made,
unique boards which are carefully designed so they can serve as an
example. Could you please point me to one or two of them?

Thanks in advance,
Andrei Sedelnikov

P.S. Slashdot doesn't fit well in the description above because ...
well ... it has a very specific auditorium.
