@leximaven Heheh, I saw your little status message every time I went into Gmail and I decided that you’re interesting enough to follow. :-)
@ironicsans Sorry about that: it was just a misdirected click + inattention. For you though, congratulations are in order generally!
@ironicsans Congratulations! You did a great job. I don’t know why they gave so much time to that social media doofus.
Just pared my Bloglines subscriptions from 280 to 120. I can’t go any lower than that unfortunately. Productivity: here I come?
@hohle The best part was meeting a lot of fellow devs and discussing the platform. I used to talk about it with a GD dev but he up and quit.
@hohle Awesome! The session on XXXXXXXXXXXXX was especially informative. I can’t believe what they’ve done with XXXXXXXXXXXX.
Reading about collections in Cocoa has made me exhausted enough for bed.
Back in the PHX finally.
One more presentation left. It has been a seriously long day!
#iphonetechtalk is confidential. There goes my plans for a play-by-play. Lucky followers!
My dalliance with ASP.NET MVC will have to wait for the *next* project. Missed the exit from beta by *that* much: http://tr.im/iz8
@paulhuff Sweet! I always thought Nikhil’s JSON parsing was a little too brittle. I don’t know why I didn’t think to move it to JSON.NET.
@rands Sends any email (not already deleted by previous rules) without my name in the To: field to a folder named “Purgatory.”
@dclevitt I have no problem with soda per se. I’m just a cheapskate.
Yesterday I had one can of soda. Today, one can of soda. My internal body monologue sounds like that alien in Men in Black: “Sugar.”
@hohle I guess I should’ve assumed that you weren’t a yahoo who would just blithely seek a 10% RIF, so to speak.
@_n I worked on ePAL there. The problem is not the number of users, but the developers and managers. I won’t elaborate on Twitter. :-)
@hohle Why worry about your LoC? I think you should worry about performance or complexity, which could be related peripherally to size.
Just got back from DSFCU, where I once worked, and found out that my SSN is also linked to Ima Test’s account, a legacy of my training days.
My wife noted that I was an all-or-nothing kind of guy and wondered why I couldn’t just limit myself to two cans. Moderation ain’t my scene.
@PrissyCook I am pop.
Okay, folks, I know I drink a lot of soda. I’m trying to curb it. Or I could be a study participant in the long-term effects of aspartame.
@dclevitt I omitted the occasional 44 oz. fountain drink or two. Occasional here means once or twice daily, but sometimes skipping a day.
@hohle There’s a lesson there: use OmniWeb. Heheheh.
It’s going to be a long day. I was back up to my sadly-normal quantities, like six or seven cans a day. I must resurrect my love of pu-erh.
Today’s the day. My tea apparatus is completely clean, I’ve brought in a new mug. I *am* switching back to tea instead of Diet Mountain Dew.
@PrissyCook Sounds like a busy day ahead of you.
Neat Spaces trick: hold on to title bar of window while changing current space with CTRL+ARROW. Release & that window is now in that space!
Ooooo, two more little green bars to go. Unless this is one of those lying Windows progress bars where the end is meaningless. I hate those.
There are times when Windows via VM is a PITA. Installing big apps that require ISOs is one of them.
@hohle I generally get around the need for such a thing by sharing ideas only with those whose honor is unassailable. Works every time.
Bloglines’ inability to read a bunch of feeds sure gave me a false sense of being on top of my subscriptions. One fix and *poof* gone.
@PrissyCook I’m not clear on what the five spices are, but the sound of a Chinese cupcake intrigues me. I know I’m not a fan of whiskey…
I think that if I had to baste the old fashioned way—with needles—my family would have been very cold and I would tell them to shut it.
Oh boy, I get to baste a ton of quilts now. It’s times like this that I wish I were a self-centered prick husband. But that’s not my style.
I just booked my flight for Friday’s Tech Talk in LA! I got on the wait list and something opened up. Lucky, lucky me!!
@sanbient I’m glad I’ve gotten one more person in this world to think about MC Frontalot. :-)
@Carnage4Life That is so wonderful! Now life gets really exciting in a whole new way.
http://tr.im/euz Here’s a much better look at the stock market under different presidencies. It’s still based on a flawed premise, though.
http://tr.im/enq I am so sick of propaganda that I could just scream. There are ten things wrong with this. HFS. 19 days of this crap left.
@dclevitt How about “racists suck”? If he were seriously looking for examples of racism by Obama supporters, he wouldn’t have to look far.
@gruber Yeah, so the Democrat view of vote fraud would be what: letting rich people vote? Allowing only one vote? Making union votes secret?
@christingom They can’t. It started out as a Usenet thing: it was a data file that people could download and use.
I’ve gots to get the fb.net stuff out the door tonight. I’m getting tired of having it on my plate. Geesh.
@sanbient I was thinking that a drinking game based on “One Day Tuesday” would result in stinking drunk.
@danesparza I lived it when I was at ASU. The purported defenders are some of the worst when it comes to speech that disagrees with them.
Government buying equity stakes in banks instead of just telling them what to do. That’s socialism, my friends, by way of fascism. HFS x 2.
@sanbient Dang, just missed each other (most likely).
Craving, it is.
I am seriously craving some In ‘N’ Out. Will I go for the hassle or cheap out and get McDonald’s? Craving vs. lazy vs. cheap. Who will win?
I love Google as a consumer, but I hate it as a developer. Dealing with it thus far has been a series of frustrations at their half-assery.
Oh and about a dozen blog entries in my System. Those are the ones exerting the most psychic weight.
298 items in Bloglines, inbox 39, and comps galore waiting. Time to go watch something from Netflix. Damn it feels good to be a slacker!
Got our court date—11/17. Looks like ol’ Bill Brown will be going to Ethiopia in early December. Anyone want to meet up? Ha. Ha.
Lesson regarding free events: register even if you’re not sure you can go. It’ll be full when you come back to register. Guaranteed. *sigh*
@dclevitt Gotchas with memcached…Nope, we had a problem with Enyim but we worked around it and haven’t had it with BeIT.
@_n Personal. If it were work-related and unannounced, I’d never mention it on Twitter.
McCain’s hero is Theodore Roosevelt. Figures. I hate that I had to choose between a Giant Turd and a Douche Sandwich. *sigh*
Finally working on my iPhone app. Geesh, I could have had this thing done and waiting interminably for Apple to approve it by now.
“If we could have intervened effectively in the Holocaust…” Uhh, didn’t we?
@haltse He knows it too. He told me moving your stuff was like moving a data center.
The move across the parking lot is complete. There was a monitor scare but it got resolved after several trips by the poor support guy.
@sanbient It was a joke, man! I’m not sure I could have gotten my teeth through them, much less digest them. Heheh.
Also, why do I have a container of two-year-old Fig Newtons?! Still delicious…
Getting ready to move cubes again. This time has taught me that I literally have more loose-leaf tea than I know what to do with.
@benatkin The only thing that worries me is that it seems like the perfect interface between inner and outer, where there was none prior.
@benatkin Just that one? You must not have had it for long: I’ve got huge ones on each side. It doesn’t seem to be a problem though.
@haltse I just heard that the Federal Reserve is getting into commercial paper. HFS!
Just finished early voting so naturally I’m sharing it with the world: http://tr.im/8nf
@benatkin That’s what I was hoping. :-)
I just read a blog entry that compared the banking industry to a 16-year-old girl. HFS. We’ll see this any day now: http://tr.im/8i0
I’m creating a new abbreviation (HFS) since WTF doesn’t seem to cut it any more: http://tr.im/8dk
@_n You now live within walking distance of me. Congrats on the condo, those are nice ones!
Finally watching Palin-Biden debate: they both have horrible (and nearly identical) ideas but Palin is more skilled at *debate* as such.
We had a great time at our new October pumpkin patch tradition: Freeman Farms - http://www.freemansaddle…
His office thanked me for my opinion just 15 minutes prior to the vote. I can’t wait to see how he justifies his reversal.
Ugh, they passed the bailout. And my representative, John Shadegg, switched. *sigh*
http://tr.im/5x3 No one’s expecting, “Y’know, Katie, I’ve never been a fan of Plessy or Dred Scott,” but come on! It’s not that hard, SP.
Jay-sus, as Fake Bono would say. I selected ten freaking classes. Something’s got to be drastically wrong… Yay, done!
I need to whip up a list of go-to tasks for when I’m getting the latest. Let’s see: I’ve gone to the bathroom, tweeted, and checked my mail.
I find it amusing, though, that Firefox on my Mac takes up more real memory than my VM even when I’m in Visual Studio. *giggles*
I’m not sure that VMWare Fusion is what makes big TFS gets take forever but it’s my working theory. I miss getting the latest just because.
@sanbient MODGOD, how about GOODGOD?
Huge pet peeve: portals that close on me on their own. Fills me with such an inner rage that I could scream. Car doors, garbage lids, etc.
(Those last two tweets were originally written on my iPhone but disappeared into the ether without a message. Twitter clients blow.)
You saw: a fountain caused by a busted sprinkler; I saw: a free car wash! It required me to back in to get the other half but so worth it.
“If you’re going to ride my ass at least pull my hair.” That is why I just don’t understand or relate to people.
Such a busy day. I got a lot of nothing important accomplished though!
@PrissyCook Let’s not go crazy! I’m just glad I could help, even someone who keeps calling me a hippie.
Service Desk reminds me why Computer Associates unofficial motto is “Where Software Goes to Die.”
“THIS AGING REQUEST IS BEING CLOSED.” Not being completed. Just being closed. I wish I could work like that!
DAMN IT! I just rolled over my 401k into an S&P 500 fund last week. If I had waited until this week, I could have killed on the cratering.
