If I were a fortune cookie maker, I would use the Lost number sequence regularly. And then imagine people freaking out about it.
@hohle You’re complaining about 3 hours of Lost? That’s what I call a good problem to have. In a week, you won’t have new Lost for 8 months.
Just finished watching The Italian Job. We’ve watched it so many times now that it’s actually wearing out. A DVD—didn’t think they did that
4R3BRTZ on a Yukon. Lovely.
Ugh, NPR program on nanotubes is likening them to asbestos. Way to go!
Leaving for work in the morning is preceded by a whole lot of kiss catching.
People have asked me why I Twitter when I have a blog. Best I could come up with was asynchronous IM. Wife reminded me that I hardly IM.
@cklosowski As long as you promise not to wear it when you’re hired. :-)
I think most of the people in this theater weren’t even born when Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade came out. *sigh*
So pissed. I thought I bought tickets to the Cine Capri but apparently I did not. But this regular theater is practically empty.
Off to Indy!!! Woohoo!
Had lunch with my daughters today. I had the Big Mac and they had the minimum necessary to get to the playground.
I’m seriously thinking about going to see Indiana Jones tonight at midnight at the Cine Capri.
@redmonk had a good name for it—SchizoBar—because of its muddled nature.
Firefox 3’s AwesomeBar isn’t. In fact, I absolutely hate it. The only navigation bar on any system that gets it right is OmniWeb.
Got the shuttle back from the dealer. Always a dicey proposition. This time I got a right-wing nutjob: he called immigrants “beaners.” Uhhh.
@garykamen I wouldn’t. The app, under the hood, is far more sophisticated than it appears. It’s just at the limits of its architecture.
I just got word that a dream of mine is being considered at work! I have literally been suggesting it monthly for as long as I can recall.
Enh. The Grooves they were selling were more like ruts.
From the look of things, Scottsdalians like the free also. Or these are all just cheapskates from the rest of the Valley like us.
At McCormick Railroad Park for a free concert: The Groove Merchants. I hope their groove prices are reasonable & they take debit.
McCain on SNL: pretty damn funny. He’s a great straight man.
Anne Hathaway as Agent 99: perfect!
Watching SNL season finale: please, please let there be no Laser Cats digital short. I don’t think that’s too much to ask.
Down to 194.5# on the No-S Diet after a month and a week. http://www.nosdiet.com/
@rands My first thought was Paik must be really small cap. But I think she got the other survivors to contribute or maybe even just Hugo.
@dbme You should see the logo for “Click Clown.” To me, that should’ve been enough to torpedo the name.
30 Rock: umm, season finale was last week dork! And it was a hoot.
The Office: incredible episode. I love the restraint Michael displayed with Toby once Holly got in the picture. I bet Kevin “bangs her.”
Lost: great, as usual. I hate that the season finale is drawn out to three episodes. Cripes, give it to me in one shot—I can take it.
Settling in to watch Lost, The Office, and 30 Rock after a long day.
Merlin: “Email forwarding is blogging for old people.”
@hotdogsladies It was nice to meet you. Great presentation!
At Merlin’s Inbox Zero talk: he’s an amazing presenter!
I couldn’t have asked for a better audience either: the questions were awesome!!
Finished my presentation: I killed!!
Bob’s giving us the raw story behind the company’s origins.
Puckett was dancing with Candice on stage. OMG.
I’m two people away from Go Daddy Girl Candice Michelle. She’s taller than I remember her from the last time I saw her roaming the GD halls.
Waiting for Bob’s keynote.
Just heard: 425 IT staff attending.
I used to think my room was terrible but at least I’m not next to a go kart track. Good gravy!!
Just met Merlin Mann: he’s surprisingly affable. Trite of me to say, but very true.
OAuth part of the talk now. The part I’ve been waiting for.
@redmonk You should’ve used the microphone. This place is crazy noisy.
He didn’t cover the deficiencies, but boy are they coming out in the questions. :-)
I was not aware of delegation in OpenID. Good to know.
He’s making a good case for OpenID. Will he cover its deficiencies?
Nearly-packed room: I am very surprised at the turnout!
First technical presentation for me: OpenID and OpenAuth by Steve Ivy
I mean, I’ve seriously spoken to someone maybe four times since I got here. Two of them were to the TechFest coordinator.
At TechFest. I realized just how unsocialable I am. Maybe it’s just how I am before a presentation—I don’t do enough of them to know.
The biggest hurdle in running Windows virtually on my Mac all the time: CMD+L. Mac: put focus on location bar. Windows: lock computer.
11:30 PM: all of a sudden, a musical snow globe in our loft starts playing. Thing is, everyone’s asleep and it’s on the top shelf! Spooky…
You know that Brawny commercial? How about telling me how few towels you need to clean up something that absolutely don’t want on your hand?
@scottcate I’m on it, but for the life of me I don’t see the value.
Mmm, subsidized Pei Wei. Is there anything better? Oh yeah, free Pei Wei. Baby steps…
Maybe it’s Frugal Bill, but every week I look forward to Pei Wei Wednesdays at work. Go Daddy subsidizes the meal so it’s only $2.
Finally feeling better!
Ugh, I hate being sick when I’ve got so much work to do.
I hate the variation at Costcos. They don’t stock Diet Mountain Dew at the one near my work, but they do carry Diet Pepsi Max or some swill.
BlackBerry was left out on lawn since yesterday afternoon. Two waterings by the sprinkler and one 95+ degree day later, it still works!
That might be unclear but 140 characters isn’t sufficient to clarify more.
I’ve finally figured out what I love most about _Lost_: it’s a complete world that takes place utterly within our world.
I think the DirectX animation feature was messing up my system so I downgraded the VM. Life’s rosy again.
VMWare Fusion 2.0 beta is awesome. It came out on the day that I started complaining about lack of dual monitor support.
First week with the Mac Pro and VMWare Fusion for development: nice! Need more RAM. Can never have enough RAM in this setup.
On VPN, using VNC to get to a Mac to load an XP virtual machine. Would this even be recognizable to a geek time-travelling from the 80s?!
@robotech_master Also something I wouldn’t expect someone to advertise.
@gruber It’s awkward but I’ve gotten used to it. I’m definitely not as fast, but I’m close. The key for me was the slide before release tip.
MSYEATR: sorry trucker-hat wearing Ford Truck dude but all I’m seeing is “mousy eater” and I don’t think that’s what you’re advertising.
I mean, someone’s got to be the 8 to 9 appointments, right? Never me.
Working from home waiting on the Qwest guy to come and move my DSL plug. How is it that “somewhere between 8 to 12” always means 11:30?
Does anyone else mercilessly cull their followers? I just keep blocking people. But then I think “UR DOIN IT WRONG.”
My Mac switching at work seems especially timely given this: http://tinyurl.com/6gmld2
@elpipetuanis It’s nice. I wish it was a dual quad-core, but that’s like complaining about having a Porsche 911 instead of a 911 Turbo.
@gruber I loved the .38mm’s but they kept clogging on me. It’s galling when you’ve got an awesome pen that’s still 3/4 full but won’t write.
Gene Healy on the claim that Bush isn’t the worst president: “the soft bigotry of low expectations.”
At Goldwater Institute listening to Gene Healy lament the rise of the imperial presidency.
Apparently I need to “chill out” because there’s a baby in another car. Also, I have an “ugly car.” Thank you, concerned motorist!
Hooking up the Mac Pro, which will be my new workstation!! It will be a refreshing change from the Dell POS I’ve been using for 3 years.
Sharepoint wiki is still a wiki. *sigh*
@dclevitt Thanks! I’m shooting for the 180s: that’s my comfort weight.
@hohle I can see what you’re saying; I really can. It just doesn’t look right. I’m sure that I’ll soon get the idiom and it’ll all be clear.
Presentation for TechFest approved by Legal. That was easy!
I am really getting tired of smug, self-important people. My Twitterverse is thus necessarily tiny.
Just defined: worrious (adj) - curious because of worry. “I haven’t seen any movement on that project. I ask because I’m worrious.”
I miss silence at the workplace. *sigh* Donkey Laugh is at it again.
199.5# now. http://twitter.com/billb…
At this point, it looks “formidably convoluted and obscure” to these C# eyes.
“Objective-C is actually a simple, elegant programming language that is easy to learn and intuitive to program with.” I sure hope so.
