@timebarrow 140 characters is quite insufficient to get my point across. Oh well.
@timebarrow What might appear to be frigidity could be a loving couple who just had a fight. You just assume you know what’s happening.
Sudden Lock Onset Dysphoria: that feeling you get after unsuccessfully typing your password twice.
@timebarrow Or so it would appear to an observer who knows nothing about their situation.
For lunch, I got four sammies, a bowl of broccoli cheese soup, bag of fruit snacks, Snickers bar, and a bag of Doritos for $2. I <3 GoDaddy.
“And it was cheaper to go buy a company that could make a … productivity suite, than it was to buy 42,000 licenses from Microsoft.”
@sanbient !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Good luck!!
The Pixar intro on Wall-E has Wall-E changing the Luxo lamp’s light bulb. I just noticed that he puts in a CFL. Lovely.
@dclevitt Same here.I actively block.
Paul Blart: Mall Cop wasn’t nearly as bad as I had expected. At Gordon Biersch for lunch now.
@paulhuff Man, we never get that kind of fun in Phoenix. I had no idea what we were missing.
“Studies show vegetarians have better sex.” Uh? Wha? That just proves that PETA will try anything to get you to stop eating pasture kittens.
@hohle worked fine for me yesterday.
#goodthing My wife and kids bought me Chewy Nerds candy, which has rapidly become my favorite.
#goodthing I’m preparing a sandbox for The New Clarion development by restoring a database backup. It worked like a dream!
Wow, BizSpark http://www.microsoft.com… makes Microsoft a pretty damn compelling option for a startup.
I just wrote to someone “I’d @someperson myself but I have no idea who she is.” That’s combining a verb and direct object into one unit.
I always forget how much I like hiking in the desert. I come back refreshed. Plus hot and overheated, so it’s not without its drawbacks.
Picture from the hike. Scottsdale and Phoenix are in the background. http://twitpic.com/17xq7
It’s so refreshing to have a lunch-time hike in the McDowells that doesn’t end in an ambulance ride to the ER. And I remembered a beverage!
@dclevitt No doubt about that. Especially when I high-five the adjacent window afterwards.
Some new badge readers at work such that I can no longer do the lean-in manuever. I have to do a chest bumpl. It’s rather undignified.
@peterbromberg Ahh, so there is a (c) option. I knew Twitter was useful for something!
Three cakes in urinal says either a) someone ‘round here has particularly odorous urine or b) our janitors don’t like going in men’s room.
#goodthing The included headphones have an attached microphone doodad. Click once, answer call. Twice, next song, Thrice, previous song.
#goodthing My co-author (Mike N) asked my opinion about an entry, I was perfectly frank & he was receptive. Normally, frankness begets ire.
I said as a kid and I’ll say it now: I could have Chick Fil-A nuggets every meal and be in bliss. I would use my meager $3/wk on a 12 pack.
#goodthing Our CEO decreed that no meeting shall exceed one hour in length or else the organizer will have to explain why to him.
@mclazarus Yes, that is our plan. Also, deprogramming whatever leftist agenda they’re force fed. That’s a problem, public or private.
@thoughtsaloud being publicly funded doesn’t automatically make for a bad education. It just makes it more likely.
@thoughtsaloud Child abuse? Not exactly. My wife was a PS teacher and she was great. I had plenty of great ones in my PS career.
Thinking about my children’s education. Private school is not an option (sadly) and home schooling is barely, so it’s public or charter.
Man, 3G battery life is brutal. I’m debating whether to do the 3G/Edge dance all the time to keep it within reason.
@redmonk Infrastructure stuff. It comes with the territory periodically.
I could sure use some Diet Mountain Dew right now. Two-hour conference calls will do that to you. *eyelids drooping*
@mwickens I brush my teeth while I’m showering. I guess I could do some exercises but that gets a little bit, um, much to my mind.
Sitting on a conference call waiting to restart my little part of the Go Daddy virtual empire, I’m really getting caught up on my feeds.
I love it when the Barenaked Ladies Simlish tracks come up on my iPod. It’s a jarring though melodically familiar delight: http://tr.im/c530
When walking around Costco, hide work badge of leave it in the car. Or brush up on stock and field lots of questions.
Booked a flight to Seattle in March. Now we just need to arrange hotel and rental car. And what to do. Thanks half-off sale at Southwest!
3G is not enabled by default. You have to go to Settings > General > Network to turn it on. *sigh* Would’ve been nice to know two hours ago.
#goodthing Finally got Internet access back and can finally activate my iPhone 3G. It was a rough night without them.
@mwickens That is really strange. Unity and copy/paste works fine for me. There’s a preference IIRC about copy/paste if you didn’t know.
#goodthing My iPhone 3G is safe and sound at home, just waiting for me to give it some love and attention.
RT @donniefitz2 “Our new president doesn’t need Airforce One because the angels will carry him wherever he wants to go.” HAH
Calling out hyperbole always provokes more hyperbole. Plus denials of hyperbole.
I can understand the SE/30 love. I coveted one desperately at the time. At. The. Time. The Power Book was the most revolutionary to me.
@redmonk Mutter something in Arabic and let slip the word “bomb.” You’re not going anywhere after that.
I’m finally seeing some of the utility in C# interfaces; I had previously thought they were a crummy implementation of polymorphism.
Every time I feel alienated by my fellow Americans (like, say, today), relief is just a phone call away. I am ever thankful for my wife.
@paulhuff That’s good to know that there’s someone who can know my pain. The only cure is to remain absolutely still all day.
@billbrown If you’ve never conducted static electricity inside the ear unexpectedly (much less several times a day), you’re luckier than me.
http://tr.im/aws4 has taken a nasty turn. Apparently, something metal in my ear buds is close enough to my skin to cause an arc. In my ear.
Back to WebForms. Microsoft’s “January RC, Final shortly after” commitment rings hollow after promising MVC in October and then December.
I’ve decided that I like Fusion in Full Screen more than Unity. It feels like I’m in another world; the mixing of the two always seemed odd.
Tomorrow: Lost Season 5 premiere and new iPhone 3G. Day after, DSL bump from 1.5 to 7 mbps. Were it not for today, it’d be a banner week.
@billbrown I guess they did show restraint: no shoes were thrown.
@kristabellerina Obamatons are a classy bunch.
Watching Season 2 of Maverick. Damn, that was one great show!
@mwickens Fusion is awesome. VMWare builds a solid product and I’ve never had a moment of regret.
@paulhuff I had one from work but then they needed it back. So I got some freebie POS but there’s no comparison.
Just bought a refurbished iPhone 3G. I guess I couldn’t do without the iPhone.
Parting with books from my childhood is such sweet sorrow. OTOH, reclaiming shelves is a joy forever.
@sanbient Yeah, we’re glad you stopped by!
@paulhuff I adore log4net. I have no opinion of the other.
Date night tonight. And the perennial decision: what to eat? Choices are down to Islands, Carolina’s, Subway, or Greek. I do not know.
When your wife is taking medication, apparently you shouldn’t call the steroids “roids.” Also when she gets mad, don’t say it’s “roid rage.”
Just tried animal-style french fries at In ‘N’ Out: http://tr.im/85fz Verdict: delicious.
@paulhuff Sorry, apples and oranges. I was talking about Unity in VMWare Fusion finally seeming to work with the Spaces feature of OS X.
That, for anyone keeping track, was the first time I’ve ever FTWed or squee’d. Yeah, it still doesn’t feel right to me.
Maybe I had just given it up for a dead feature, but Unity is working finally with Spaces. Umm, squee? *cough* VMWare FTW? *cough* Yay!
VS2008 is a million times faster for TFS operations on my machine than VS2005 was. Finally! I’m going to be so much more productive now.
I finally got around to reading the jQuery 1.3 release notes. DAMN! That’s quite an update. Heavy perf improvements and Live Events rock!
Something about my cube, my clothing, or my chair is causing me to be a static electricity capacitor. If you see me exit my cube, watch out.
IE7 still won’t accept third-party cookies without a P3P definition. Golly. Also, WTF: http://tr.im/634d
One odd thing I keep seeing from the social media/creative class types is a municipal insecurity. Phoenix is not SFO/NYC, get over it.
The Karnival Kid is surreal. Mickey spanks a hot dog. He also seemingly scalps himself to tip his cap. I had no idea: http://tr.im/4nz9
Watching Vintage Mickey. Steamboat Willy is way more violent and simple than I had remembered.
@bfeddern Social media types are, by definition, douchebags. But not everyone there were SMers. The others were just having fun.
@tdhurst Why yes I am. I’m glad I wasn’t being too subtle.
@tdhurst Always happy to point out that the emperor has no pants.
@calligcarol That’s a valid point. But Maverick is automatically outside of any resolutions or previous commitments. It is inviolable.
Plus, there were plenty of social media douchebags milking publicity, probably thinking they’re the Godins of Phoenix.
By that I mean, IE seems more about instilling a sense of “what the heck is going on here” as opposed to publicity stunt.
Looking over the #nopantsaz photography, it seems more like depantsed flash mob than IE stunt.
Only watched 3 episodes from Season 1 of Maverick. Too tired. Must sleep. Can’t go on.
Netflix has streaming Maverick episodes. It’s going to be a long night!
Howie Do It: dumb.
Looking into ASP.NET MVC for the new project I’m on. I’m so excited to get out from under WebForms.
That meeting reminded me that I should probably start my own Objectivist club in Phoenix. Keep meaning to.
It was as bad as I remember. Two people recognized my name. Thankfully, interaction was confined to the end.
Off to the local Kelleyite meeting. Will shower afterwards.
Just found out that the president of my company is reading Atlas Shrugged. Yay!
@leximaven I could get my blood boiling just thinking of two serious perps of each at DSFCU. Luckily for them, I’m a professional.
If they ask me my name (I’m hoping they don’t recognize me), do you think they’d catch on to “Kelly Kenblohmi?”
Tonight I’m going to wallow with some scum-sucking Kelleyites to listen to a speech that was highly recommended by a co-worker.
Ugh, fingernail clipping at work. I thought I’d seen the last of that back at the ol’ DSFCU. Where are my headphones?
Tomorrow I start a new project with a new team. No more lead, lead but I’m cool with that.
@danesparza Hey, did you need something?
@paulhuff I agree that it’s pretty slick, but the LEGO stuff seems incongruous. Two explanations: a) drive usage or b) kitchen sink.
@paulhuff The more being LEGO robotics integrations. WTF?
@dclevitt I’m pretty sure I couldn’t pull off an intentional one given the fear. I’d be mortified.
I have this serious worry that one day I’m going to close an email at work with “Love, Bill” or end a phone call with “Love you too.”
I finally made my first money from Google Ads for Domains! It was 15¢ but that’s more than I was making otherwise.
If I never see another line of low-level, unmanaged C++ code again in my life, I’ll be doing swell. *stabs eyes*
@redmonk Sweet! How much?
I just paid for a Firefox add-on. Is there anything I won’t buy? Seriously.
Wow, http://www.macrumorslive… got seriously hacked for their live coverage. Or they’re seriously trying to undermine their credibility.
Gatekeepers. I hates ‘em.
(Plus another 80 links on del.icio.us. The psychological weight is killing me.)
I’ve got over forty tabs open right now of articles and blog entries that I plan to use in my own blog entries. It’s quite mentally taxing.
I’m watching Vertigo and I just realized that I’ve had vertigo many times without ever knowing what it was called. Thanks, Hitch!
@PrissyCook Go on, tell her about Dog the Bounty Hunter while you’re at it. :-)
@sanbient You mean shocked at what people try to pass off as “art.” If you lower the bar enough, anything is art and anyone is an artist.
@redmonk I recommend Flickr. That plus FlickrExport makes it seamless to manage everything from within iPhoto. iPhoto rocks!
Wow, it is a total ghost town ‘round here—though everyone on *my* team is here.
Finally wired up the chandelier, repaired the downstairs gate, and soldered my wife’s iPod car adapter. Almost through my household to-dos.
