There is nothing better than hearing someone you respect casually refer to you as a “genius.”
OMFG, long story short: I’m back on 1.1.3 for the time being. I tracked down 2.0b1 but every time I install it it looks like 1.1.3. BLURG!!!
Okay, so the Beta 2 install didn’t go so well: http://communities.vmwar…
http://xrl.us/Mojave It would have been funny if instead of Vista, they had used Leopard. Free idea, Apple.
@hohle I wasn’t clear. I meant Spaces the virtual workspace app. The previous beta’s Unity didn’t work with it at all.
Woohoo! New beta of VMWare Fusion. Might this Unity support Spaces? Pretty please?
@danesparza My favorite comment: “Seems like a reasonable response to me.”
My solution, incidentally, was to make a new folder, copy the items in there individually, and then shift click away. Close enough…
Perils of Virtual Windows Theatre presents “Just Try Selecting Two Non-Contiguous Items in a Folder or: Enjoy Your Context Menu Buddy”
“It is what it is” is getting so tired. May I suggest “A is A” instead? :-)
In Spaces hell: I plugged in my iPhone for syncing and could not for the life of me find the iTunes window. Assigned spaces aren’t so bad.
“It’s Peanut Butter Jelly Time” just killed with the kids. How can anyone not smile after seeing it?
Just heard BBC sports news on NPR. It was definitely English being spoken but I still understood none of it.
I am so sick of delays. Nothing specific, but my life lately seems to have been defined by nothing so much as waiting around for others.
I’m following about six fewer people now but I have no idea who they are. And I don’t want to add anyone if Twitter’s going to fix things.
@sanbient Interesting. Not at all what I was expecting, also.
Time to leave F8. Next time, F8, tell people that there’s an afterparty and hackathon along with the announcement of conference times. Grrr.
The crowd at F8 is *exactly* what I expected. I can see the attraction to being here and I can see that I’d rather not be here.
Urinals are absurdly close and sans dividers. WTF?
I’d wager that it’s mostly Macs at F8. Also, Zuck’s like five feet from me.
Zuckerberg turned off the music, thankfully.
I’m mooching off a Mozilla guy’s power.
Waiting for the Zuckerberg keynote. HOLY SHIT PEOPLE, TURN DOWN THE MUSIC! ALSO, TURN UP THE FUCKING AIR!
@carnage4life Are you at F8? I’d love to meet you!
At f8 right now.
@sanbient Yikes! That wasn’t even the funniest thing she said, just the last.
Example of stewardess humor: “like my daddy said when I turned 18, get your bags and get out.”
Hawaiian Air plane looks very inviting. Geesh, now I want to go to Hawaii.
Brief stop in LA. The stewardess was hilarious. I’m glad that nothing has changed on Southwest since last time I flew back in augur-two
It’s like a weirdly-orchestrated dance.
At Sky Harbor. This is the first time I’ve flown in five years. You read about security theater but it’s not the same as living it.
Getting ready for F8.
@sanbient For a SMART car? It’d have to $5 or lower. Heh.
For me, the killer feature of iPhone 2.0 isn’t the App Store. It’s multi-delete in Mail. I don’t know how anyone got along without it.
Tomorrow I’ll be at F8. It’s going to be a long, long day.
@Carnage4Life I’d be interested.
Writing lengthy screeds and calling oneself a writer does not a writer make.
Some days I feel like my Mac experience consists mainly of entering my Keychain master password.
EAI idea: http://www.tempepaintbal… Tuesdays and thursdays are half off
@haltse Luckily no. Dark night, side yard, avoiding poop. Lost grip, flew through air onto rocks, slight crack around enter. Still works.
The Dark Knight: a lot to process. Visually arresting, worthy successor to Batman Begins, but long and thematically perplexing. Must sleep.
Count me in the Twitterific hating club. Seemingly I’m the only member.
Damn it! I’ve already cracked my iPhone screen.
The Dark Knight tonight! Woohoo!
bla.me, whoswith.me, and bbrownisnotla.me are all available. FYI.
Thursday at 12:01 AM in movie theater land is actually *Friday* at 12:01 AM. I almost argued but it’s not like they’d show it just for me.
So I bought a ticket to The Dark Knight for Thursday at 12:01 AM. When would you think that was? A minute ago. You’d be wrong, my friend.
HUGE turnout! Standing room only.
I’m at Goldwater for panel on the future of conservatism. Dying to know if they’re familiar with Thompson’s essay on the subject. Dying.
@danesparza 1 meelion domains. Muahahah!
This is why I don’t like Twitterific. I’ve sent several tweets from it that never posted. That *never* happened with TwitterBerry.
@Carnage4Life I’m going to be there, but we’ve never met before.
@sanbient Holy crap!! That is amazing news. How far along?
I’ve finally gotten around to shutting down the BlackBerry. I’m already missing TwitterBerry; Twitterific is not even in the same league.
I can see how people thought that. It *is* superficially like Idiocracy.
Saw Wall-E. Better than I expected, but that’s because I was expecting an anti-materialist, environmentalist propaganda piece. Review later.
I’m feeling handy today: I fixed a leaky faucet. I now have a semblance of a clue how faucets work, which is more than I had yesterday.
“So help me, dog!” I sound like a dyslexic oath-taker.
The PedEgg is like a cheese grater for your feet. It works like a mofo.
Something got unclogged at Apple: now I know two people accepted into the iPhone developer program. Congrats, two-who-shall-remain-nameless!
Attacking my heels with a PedEgg. It’s disgusting but … See ya later, alligator!
I finally know someone that’s been accepted into the iPhone developer program. Unfortunately, I don’t think he’s going to be making an app.
@Carnage4Life Good one. I liked the comment that the downside is that he’s Robert Scoble.
It’s times like this (with the iPhone 2.0 release) that it pays to be a fanboy. I had it installed without a hiccup yesterday at 9:53 AM.
I don’t mind saying this but OmniFocus is easily the best iPhone app I’ve found. Incredible work.
Wow! HUGE line outside AT&T store at Cave Creek and the 101. Even bigger than I wouldve expected.
Installing iPhone 2.0 now!
@sanbient My code is 1719-4256-5808
@sanbient Congratulations! I’m woefully behind on my unlocking.
I am in full Mail.app joy now.
Ugh, can’t get SMTP working properly.
Wow, importing your email from Outlook 2003 to Mail.app is way harder than it should be. But so worth it.
It’s adorable wjen my three toddler daughters insist that they need some of my deoderant.
Good gravy! Hula hooping is not my game on the Wii Fit. Apparently, though, I’m terribly entertaining to watch.
Playing Rummikub with friend and wife. As usual, getting beaten soundly.
@_n Not to pick nits, but I think you mean posts : blogs :: articles : magazines
I think Mr. Magorium’s Bacon Emporium has a nice ring to it.
Sadly, I don’t think the laticework on the cover piece was detailed enough to tell me where in the map room to put it.
Just bought iron fire pit at garage sale: $10 but I think the price included another $10 of schadenfreude since it was placed in direct sun
New puppy chewed through laptop power cord and iPhone sync cord. *sigh*
After all of my experiences with crows, I like to stare them down when I see them. Just to let them know that I aint no sparrow.
I’m thinking that three hours of The Tom Green Show might have been a mistake. It’s really skewing my perspective right now.
Watching Wipeout. I cannot get enough of this show. It may be the best hour on TV.
Ooo, Wipeout’s on tonight. I’m glad I remembered.
28 in a 40. Oh, come on!
Ugh, I hate driving in Scottsdale. I don’t know if it’s demographics, photo radar, or lots of police but people here drive so slow.
On the other hand, it’s fucking 110 degrees! Good gravy.
Luck of luck!! They let me into the generating building and showed me around. I’m on cloud nine right now!!
I don’t remember there being this many small, flying bugs last time. I don’t think they’re biters, so that’s good.
I don’t go there enough and I don’t know why. Maybe I don’t want to abuse its restorative powers or become less special.
Time to go to my happy place.
