Yikes: http://tr.im/uvtH Plus you get 512 text messages on a plan that typically allows 200 free! That’s insult to injury.
I don’t know what it is about wheels that makes people reinvent them. Is it wheel ignorance or arrogance?
Hulu Desktop has one of the most inscrutable user interfaces of a desktop application I’ve ever seen. Everything is a chore.
An app I did back in 2008 keeps coming back to haunt me. Some people wear bling around their necks; I have albatrosses.
Active for 5 days, it’s *already* had 34 auctions! This is going to be huge.
I mean, really: a smaller, less diverse eBay! Instead of geographic limitations, it features demographic limitations. Yeah, it won’t last.
I ponied up $5 to join the Internet Garage Sale. Now wondering if *I’m* a hipster d00fus with more money than common sense.
@WilliamGreeley I say block them merrily. I sure do: if I can’t figure out a valid reason why you’re following me, then you’re blocked.
@donniefitz2 Web app is still a good idea and much, much easier.
@donniefitz2 With your lawyer Web app, an iPhone version makes it more compelling. But maybe lawyers are more BlackBerry users.
I cannot wait to see how they re-imagined the Troniverse based on this Tron Legacy trailer: http://tr.im/tVlr
@haltse The team is a little more subdued with you on vacation. :-)
The common sentiment from everyone on my team is “where do we keep the firehoses?”
The union protesters have now devolved into screaming “NERD!” whenever someone from Go Daddy emerges from one of the buildings. Hilarious!
From inside, the union bleating sounds like the broadcast prayers from a nearby mosque when I was in Ethiopia: rhythmic and unintelligible.
The only unions I like are in SQL.
The company that we’re using to do some remodelling of our offices subcontracted a carpenter that uses non-union labor. *rolls eyes*

I finally pranked someone at the office and they didn’t even have the courtesy to come to work today.
An Arizona constitutional amendment protecting the right to private insurance could have led to a modern-day Schechter.
I hope that anyone in Arizona worried about Obamacare voted for Prop. 100. Otherwise, you had your chance and you blew it. http://tr.im/tJas
Wow, the “upgrade” from XP to 7 is actually a clean install and that’s the only option: http://tr.im/tIWC
Just figured out git commit —amend. I had been using GitX to handle amending commits (great program by the way): http://gitx.frim.nl/
Anytime I need to do something interesting with Git, I know it’s possible. It’s the Emacs of SCM—I just have to find the right incantation.
@portiaroy Thank you for linking me to that. It was utterly irrelevant to my tweet so I’m going to go ahead and report you as a spammer.
It is amazing to me how many Go Daddy employees (and management) are on Twitter. It probably rivals Zappos but we’re just not announcing it.
Kind of makes Whittaker Chambers seem substantive and intellectual by comparison: http://tr.im/tqTy
@JivaDeVoe That was my favorite one of the whole conference. It was inspiring.
@kristabellerina Cracker Barrel has decent chicken-fried steak, I’ve heard.
This is the *best* shirt I’ve seen in a while: http://www.splitreason.c…
RSA problem solved! Wasn’t RSA, surprise, surprise. :-)
@rands Go for “jinky.”
@mwickens Nice one!
I am so happy that I am actually using an interrobang as a meaningful response in my Web application. Hee hee!
I am quite proud of the rate-limiting I just completed. Simple, straightforward, and—dare I say—clever.
Bob Parsons Rule Number 11: “Pay attention to your competitors, but pay more attention to what you’re doing.”
I just gave up 250 of my precious reputation points on SO to get an answer to this nagging issue.
After this Twitter flap, I’m tempted to go through my Keychain of 200+ items and make sure that each site has a distinct password.
Still no RSA resolution. This impasse is killing me! I’m going to move on to something else and let the pleas for help percolate for a bit.
I’m going RSA nuts. Where else can I ask a question after I’ve tried StackOverflow, DevForums, and the CDSA list? PKI, more like PKwhy.
@Dannabug If they’re interested. I’m not going to push them. But one really wants to learn piano already.
@Dannabug I was pretty bad—I was only ever able to play one song. I played alto and baritone as youth; now I know that I’m a woodwind guy.
I can’t really throw stones as I once practiced the trumpet on my morning commute. In my defense, that is designed to be played one handed.
I saw guy drumming while driving (with drumsticks) today—almost as bad as the time I saw a guy playing guitar. Now I wait for piano man.
Skipper Dan is hilarious: http://tinyurl.com/klfo8h
Darn SelfControl.app and its open-sourcedness. I got curious and dug into how it’s implemented. Now I can defeat it rather easily…
Last quote was from George Will, finding the positive in the Michael Jackson coverage: http://is.gd/1xFai
“When the mainstream media is preoccupied with this, it’s probably doing, on margin, less damage than when it’s dealing with public policy.”
Happy Bastille Day Eve everybody!
Trac will always have a special place in my heart, but GitHub is pretty darn rockin’ I’ve got to say.
Ready for hot Saturday night programming action: http://twitpic.com/a38qg
@dclevitt Sadly, it doesn’t appear to work that way.
Got my Google Voice invitation and set it up. Without LNP, it’s not very useful to me.
“Back off man, I’m a parapsychologist.” #1stdraftmovielines
SelfControl.app tip #2: it can’t prevent your weakness in VMWare Fusion.
SelfControl.app tip: don’t put any subdomain of Google in the blacklist. No googling for me for the next four hours. *sigh*
@AttyJones Aren’t these “cyberattacks” really just DDOS incidents? I don’t get the sense that they’re sophisticated. Am I missing something?
So many people described as selfish are more properly self-centered or self-absorbed. They are really anything *but* selfish.
@mclazarus Most of the games I have are for them. They’re iPhone pros, except for my 18-month son. He’s only mastered the Home button.
@mclazarus If you ever need a beta tester, let me know. I’m comfortable with provisioning profiles. Heh.
@mclazarus Awesome! I myself have finally found an itch to scratch.
@donniefitz2 Honestly, I’m just glad that we’re only getting tweets about the input and not the output.
Debugged my own overrelease issue without Clang. It was painful though and I’d still prefer Clang’s fast, accurate goodness.
@JivaDeVoe But what’s with requiring the Twitter name? There are many colleagues I respect that aren’t on Twitter. Makes it seem fishy.
Something about the iPhone OS 3.0 SDK upgrade broke my Clang and right now I’m in a spot without it.
This is the most over the top App Store description I’ve seen: http://bit.ly/czwM5
@PrissyCook Me neither. I always end up just bunching it.
I’d go to the Tea Party today but who the hell makes it a march from Indian School to the Capitol in July in Phoenix. Sorry, liberty.
We don’t really celebrate the Fourth even though we love America. I think it’s like Valentine’s: we think you should be romantic every day.
Apple’s released CrashWrangler to ADC members: http://bit.ly/12RgD7
Cool! You can now register a Twitter username when you register a domain: http://bit.ly/ALF99
The founder of CEI loves Ayn Rand: http://bit.ly/14qr4b
@mclazarus Depends on the age, but I never minded listening to Laurie Berkner. My kids also enjoy soundtracks to their favorite movies.
Another data point for the case that “why the lucky stiff” is a creative genius: http://hackety.org/potio…
Chick Fil-A has free chicken biscuits for breakfast today. I decided to get an extra one and the guy gave them both to me for free!
I can’t tell whether most people online aren’t using Security.framework or just aren’t talking about it. I just want SecKeyRef -> NSData.
@dclevitt That’s a good question… Let’s see. 10 in four years unless I’m forgetting one or two of those two-week moves.
Hear, hear: http://bit.ly/4qcMjM
Got moved to a better cube in the old C3 on the window. Feeling pretty lucky right now.
In many states, if you let your gift card expire, it goes to the government: http://tr.im/qpzV What do they do with $17 million at Old Navy?

Wow, the WWDC videos are already up! That is quite speedy and unusual for Apple.
