Freakin’ Guitar Center! I went in looking for a good fight and the manager saw my point immediately. http://xrl.us/WindOutOfM…
Just saw a slick 911 Cayenne S with license plate: OOTO. Nice!
I had forgotten how exciting a puppy can be. Lucy is as graceful as Bambi and as calm as Woody Allen. With a hair-trigger urination reflex.
D.A.R.E. copycat bumper sticker: C.R.E.A.M. Cash Rules Everything Around Me. Uhhh.
@redmonk Happy birthday, Steve!
Shaved the beard. Experiment a failure (or success, I suppose). Left mustache on. Consensus: creepy. Buh-bye, mustache. Back to baby’s butt.
This new dog has really united our cats.
So far: Penny, hesitant; Peach, curious; Daphne, hiding; Lucy, nervous.
Off to pick up our new standard poodle. I’m excited! It’s no Dalmatian but it’s close enough for now.
Favrd is excellent as a douchebag blacklist. Yet another example of an application that serves an unintended purpose.
There are reasons why I love having a swimming pool; today was two of them.
I don’t understand (and am not fully comfortable with) the fact that fireworks are being shot off so distant from the actual Fourth.
Fireworks at Deer Valley Park were really great. It wasn’t too hot, we had an expanse to ourselves, and we were very close to the action.
Time for fireworks. Should be perfect weather. :-|
Okay, we’re picking up our new pooch Lucy tomorrow morning. She’s the one on the left in this picture: http://is.gd/I5j
Off to check out a blue standard poodle. The Browns just keep growing and growing.
BrickBreaker: 3940, level 8. Personal best.
Why can’t SQL allow either FROM or FORM. My life would be so much easier.
Come to papa again, Number Eight!
Beard Report Day 5: still no birds living in it and finally able to do that gesture of thoughtfully stroking it.
Come to papa, Number 8!
From the no-credibility dept: McCain’s jailer says McCain wasn’t tortured while captive http://tinyurl.com/6c2x2m
I’m wondering when my facial hair will go from ‘swarthy’ to ‘UNIX guy.’
I haven’t shaved for a few days so I’m going to take this foundation and build a house of whiskers on it.
Guitare Center just messed with the wrong guy. I’m takin’ it to the streets!
Fail Whale: genius name for the oft-seen Twitter page artwork.
Add debugging to the “enormous reservations” list.
Tracked down my first autorelease double free error. Enumerators, *scoff*.
I do have enormous reservations about it, however. Memory management for one. NSString, for another. There’s an entry here, don’t you worry.
Okay, Objective-C is growing on me.
I finally had some success on that project. There’s still a lot of angst surrounding that one thing, but at least I’m seeing progress.
XML is case-sensitive. APIs are often in XML. Those two factoids should be stored as one unit. Gah.
@tceleste Oh, it’s a direct link to the Firefox 3 download for the Mac. It makes sense in the context of my previous tweet.
I think this is a direct link: http://tinyurl.com/6anmfx (substitute os=win or os=linux)
I’m having trouble downloading the new Firefox 3. I wonder why.
I used the last of the paper and it has been an ordeal trying to get another box to set next to the printer. Three emails and a walk so far.
Thankfully, I rarely think of the movie. For some reason, I did while walking down the stairs to let the dog out at 1:50 AM.
Every time I think of There Will Be Blood my mind completes: “Oh yes, there will be blood.” à la Wayne’s World. I doubt they wanted that.
Forty-five minutes on Wii Fit is surprisingly taxing. Miyamoto is a genius; I wonder if he’s designed any horrible games.
@asocialcontract Nope. But its intermittent availability is quite well-documented.
Oy. I gave inches. That was my first mistake.
All conduit drops from the ceiling. You get the feeling that this site could become a distribution warehouse if the neighborhood went south.
I had never really noticed, but Costco’s interiors are great examples of shared-nothing architecture. There’s little or nothing affixed.
I just about ‘sploded my ear drums due to the differing volumes required in my car versus in my ear. Ow.
@asocialcontract I’d be interested in your experiences once you’ve had it for a bit. I was intrigued by it when it first came out.
@Carnage4Life “But the opportunity to work in a much smaller company recently presented itself and it was simply too interesting to pass up”
Walking to my car, it was like parting the Red Sea but with grasshoppers.
“At least you got it working.” “Sadly, that is not the case.”
“What did you today?” “Oh, I spent approximately 7 hours trying to get a spinning icon to show up and go away on command.” Puzzled look.
What I hate about programming: when things just inexplicably stop working even though nothing’s obviously changed. Hours just wiz away.
HOORAY! Rage dissipating. Chairs nicely moved around. Deep breaths again.
Damn. I could’ve saved $24.95 on Flickr Pro had I known about me.com.
Waiting for the keynote to start…
133 at bowling. Not too shabby. Quite different from Wii Bowling though.
Sorry, I can’t elaborate on the source of my rage. If you’re a co-worker, I’ll gladly share. Otherwise, it’s going to have to wait.
I wish I had one of those veins in my forehead in order to serve as a visual red flag that you should keep me away from chairs.
Where’s that chair? So help me, I need a chair now.
FUCK! That’s all I’ve got to say. Son a bitch! Damn it, damn it, damn it! I’m about ready to do a Ballmer.
Also, making half the difference his father made.
Excellent presentation. I plan to spend my life earning the sort of stirring sentiments that Barry Goldwater Jr. paid to his father.
I’m sitting diagonally from one bizarrely-dressed lady. Glittery American flag hat, animal print blouse, weird fur boots, and blue eyeliner.
It is an odd mix of legislators, public policy types, gray hairs, and the occasional weirdo.
At the Goldwater Institute for a presentation by John Dean and Barry Goldwater Jr. on their new book, Pure Goldwater.
@hohle I certainly can’t argue. They’ve figured out desserts.
It would not have taken much to make me a Culverite. I went in ready to be wowed. Plus, I’m easily impressed by burger joints.
Don’t even get me started on their layout or menu. Train wreck. Decent desserts though. And all right!
Missed an item? It happens. Forgot three chocolate milks? Uhh, okay. Charged me for an extra meal? Come on!
Just got back from being Culverized. Short review: it’s hard to imagine them getting more wrong. Screwed up three things on our order. 3!
I think rather than find a good cupcake vendor, I should really be looking for a good bakery. Phoenicians, any recommendations?
Serious peanut butter chip cupcake headache. It was good but not worth it. I even took 2 ibuprofen in anticipation. Two more should help.
