@siracusa There goes my evening. :-)
I got it! I got it! I got it! Woohoo!!!!
@mclazarus iPhone distribution troubles are enough to wear anyone out.
@PrissyCook Are you saying that there are 3.2 feet in your living room? Sounds like a helluva story behind that.
@paulhuff Let’s just say that it was a big enough idea that I could have went on my own and attracted scads of VC, but I’m not that guy.
@paulhuff Sorry, but can’t go into details. It would be a new product for a new team or, I guess, an existing team. With or without me.
Just spent the last 45 minutes pitching a game-changing product idea to a VP and he got it. He actually grokked it.

What now? Come again? http://twitpic.com/fcoa5
RT @WilliamGreeley When Obama talked about “shovel ready projects,” we didn’t realize he meant old people. [Hahahah!]
Thinking about this: http://tr.im/x7sL 444 reviews, 154 questions with 225 answers. Amazon has … 1 review. HFS!
Amazon says I’ll be getting 10.6 between 9/8 and 9/15. I’m debating whether the sales tax is worth it since I’m already using the DP. Hmm…
Two more classes to document. Home stretch. (Also, I miss .NET’s XML documentation comments.)
Good introduction to the peak oil fallacy: http://tr.im/x4RN
Put in request for 10.6 upgrade at work—they must make sure that it plays well with the network first. I’m sure MS has made them gun shy.
@sanbient Not for a second. Or was that a rhetorical question?
If you read Gruber’s “mea culpa,” you might notice an absence of responsibility on his part. FSJ hands him some: http://tr.im/x118

@Carnage4Life I (and many) would say neither if okay, but one has well over a hundred years of inertia and entrenched interests behind it.
The journey of a 1000 git push origin masters begins with a single git commit.
One of the takeaways of the RiffTrax Live event is that I can confirm firsthand that “Plan 9 from Outer Space” is the worst movie ever made.
RiffTrax Live was fantastic! I laughed the entire time. Just terrific: I miss MSTK3000.
At RiffTrax Live at Desert Ridge. I guess I didn’t have to preorder my tickets. Heh.
Also, the state legislature banned the use of a national ID: http://tr.im/wLNq Come on, state nullification for freedom!
Yay, looks like we’ll get another chance to protect our health care freedom in Arizona: http://tr.im/wLMr
@sanbient I’m glad to hear it!
Diggnation was better than I expected in some ways but much worse in others. Oh well, at least I didn’t have to pay for it.
@JivaDeVoe I don’t know if this changes anything but Go Daddy Girl Anna Rawson will be there at 7:30 PM.
@dclevitt The baby is essentially a parasite in that she is always sated before the host. I wouldn’t worry one bit.
@mwickens Thanks! Much of that blog entry was window dressing just to set the context for that line.
@sanbient It’s bittersweet because “the mailbox mainly receives spam and messages for you.” None of which were ever forwarded. Oh well.
@dclevitt That’s still my primary account. Since my ActiveDirectory and everything else is tied to bcbrown, I don’t dare rock that boat.
Today is a great day! Nearly three years after he left, I have finally snatched email@example.com from the grasp of my arch-nemesis Bobby.
You know it’s bad when you have to use scientific notation to indicate your inflation rate: http://tr.im/wEQ1
I just had my interview for an internal position. I wish it could have been in person since I’m more nasal than usual. I think it went well.
@garykamen Can’t wait to finally meet you! See you tomorrow…
Parent in The Girls’ kindergarten class was a *dead ringer* for Kate Austen from Lost.
Phew, submitted two internal applications with two minutes to spare! Here’s hoping.
“There are two kinds of programmers: those who do think in terms of trees, and those who do everything with hash tables.” http://tr.im/wqvW
HFS! Stephen Hawking lived because of private American foundations after the NHS rationed care: http://tr.im/wqkh
“Today, it seems it is not contemplation we seek but an odd sort of distraction masquerading as being in the know.”
Listening to The Fountainhead, some of the opinions seem over-the-top. But then I read this… http://tr.im/wptJ
Actually, it might be due to the fact that my resume was in AppleWorks format and I don’t have that program any longer.
(Side note: I’m not leaving Go Daddy, just applying for an internal position.)
I hate updating my resume; it’s been three years since the last time. I can’t decide if it’s a loathing of bullet points or word processing.
@peterbromberg It’s like they’re not even listening to you!
From reddit, one of these things is not like the other: http://tr.im/wl7R Heh, too true. It can be a little verbose.
pbzip2 is parallelized bzip2! http://tr.im/wl7u If you’re on MacPorts, “sudo port install pbzip2” BOOM!
Love Phoenix, hate downtown.
@donniefitz2 Go Daddy is sponsoring it or something. Anna Rawson’s going to be there.
RT @snej: “Wrights’ Law: as any feature debate gets longer, prob. of a mythical user ‘being on an airplane’ approaches 1.” [Too true!]
304 bytes!?! That tweet was practically that much. Moving on…
So I see the ObjectAlloc fill its track and I’m panicking! “Ahhhhh, my scroll view isn’t releasing!” Hover over the bar and it’s 304 bytes..
Class action lawyers are the scum of the earth: http://bit.ly/nU6TR
Oh yeah! RiffTrax Live on 8/20 is playing just down the street from me: http://www.ncm.com/Fatho…
Here come the camps: http://www.nytimes.com/2…
I am really intrigued by the idea of the iPhone as home controller: http://tr.im/vGCZ
I just early voted and wrote in a candidate! I sure hope “The Second Highest Vote Getter” wins Phoenix City Council District 2.
I would have preferred Mignon Fogarty, but oh well: http://tr.im/vrYk
Oh yes. Yes, I’ll take that: http://tr.im/vnek
@peterbromberg That strangely works either way.
Oh my, it’s like we won’t know we eating poop if it’s called feces: http://tr.im/vmiM
Khalid Shaikh, buh-bye and good riddance: http://tr.im/vkOH
Finally got my VMWare madness under control. The snapshots had gotten up to 250 GB and I couldn’t delete anything. vmware-vdiskmanager -R!
Tomorrow I begin listening to The Fountainhead on audiobook for my daily commute. I’m so excited!
@mwickens when Yaron Brook or the ARI Twitter feed follows him, then I’ll buy that it’s the real deal.
