@shlevy Let’s just say that the issue of having children cannot be ignored. If it were physically impossible, it’s a private matter to me.
@WilliamGreeley Yep, that’s the distortion I was thinking of. Just wanted to make sure I wasn’t missing anything.
Just found a @tweetie feature: when replying, you can pull down the text input area to reveal the tweet to which you are replying. Slick!
@WilliamGreeley By “environmentalist policies” do you mean ethanol subsidies? Or something else?
Just saw a 60-Day Lock costume here at work. Hilarious! I’m still chuckling over it.
@shlevy That’s fine. My general principle is to avoid neologisms and slang where there already exists sufficient terms.
@shlevy I suggest you do what you like. I think it’s an abomination and never acceptable but you’re welcome to not care a whit what I think.
@shlevy Readers? Followers? How do you refer to your friends? Do you call them your “peeps?”
(Too subtle? How about: “tweep” is a bastardization of a bastardization that immediately diminishes any respect I have for someone.)
It’s rare that a good portmanteau springs up. “Tweep” does nothing to decrease that rarity.
HAH! Evolution of a Python programmer: http://gist.github.com/2…
@rationaljenn It’s empirically ridiculous. My daughter has a peanut allergy and are not germophobes by a long shot.
“The end is near when you can bootstrap a new iPad application on an iPad.” Good analysis @ http://tr.im/M1Jp
@ironicsans How close is Celebration, the Disney planned community? That could be interesting.
atebits “It’s just a big iPod touch” is the new “less space than a nomad”.
The Mac had a great run, but this is the end of the desktop OS.
Boy howdy am I feeling every one of those 588 points I just scored on the Obstacle Course on Wii Fit Plus.
Twitter appears to have been taken over by Beavis and Butthead because of this iPad name. Do any of you need iTP for your iBungHole? *sigh*
@shlevy Also, I can type faster on my iPhone than I could on my old BlackBerry. That really surprised me, too.
@shlevy Then we’ll have to just disagree about browsing with touch vs. laptop. To me, the former is perfect though less efficient for text.
@shlevy Have you used the iPhone to browse? Touch is such a great way to interact with the Web (and anything, really).
Ugh, you have to be a paying developer program member to get the SDK. Fine, I’ll pay again, Apple. (Annoying how many times I’ve said that.)
@shlevy A bigger iPhone that you can read a PDF on without incessant pinching to zoom and swiping to get it positioned correctly.
@shlevy That’s fine. None of those are remotely compelling to me.
Come on, one more thing. No family appreciation closing!
I wonder if that iPad keyboard dock will work with an iPhone…
Must. Resist. Reasonable. Pricing. GAH!
I hate rain. There are places where rain is a feature, like Seattle, and there are places where rain is a bug, like Phoenix.
@MomentoApp *sniff* That was beautiful. Couldn’t have said it better myself.
“I mean, the invitation is clearly a Rorshach test. You know, think different—I sure do.”
Nothing like an imminent Apple announcement to bring out the morons. “Uhh, it’s probably gonna use your brain waves for input.”
@WilliamGreeley Sadly, no TiVo (no cable). I’ll just end up watching online the next day.
Blurgh! I just realized that the Lockitch event is going on at the same time as the LOST premiere: http://tr.im/LHvS
Lots of neat iPhone apps here: http://app.itize.us/
I think I’m going to use this to subscribe to blog entries I comment on: http://tr.im/LCId
Keynes vs. Hayek, an econ rap: http://www.youtube.com/w… Liked it, but 7 1/2 minutes? Too long to be effective, IMHO.
@mwickens A crank?! I remember leasing phones, party lines, and wanting a non-rotary but that beats all.
@shlevy You can tell them it’s like a thoughtcast except they took 15 minutes and you had to use your ears to process them.
@mclazarus I love those generational disconnects. I had two recently about the black and white TVs of my youth and payphones.
codinghorror I am officially adding “eat some silica gel” to my bucket list.
@shlevy Make a bar bet at an OCON in 2020. You’ll mop up.
Mountain Dew is a great flavor for Chapstick.
@momentoapp Love the app. I’d like a “new moment” button on a date view that would default to that date. I’m annotating tweets.
Today’s chicken enchilada entrée is exceedingly bland. Which suits me perfectly!
@rationaljenn nope, never had a crash on either the Mac or iPhone.
The 101 is ridiculous! It’s been 45 minutes to move 1/4 mile.
If you want Netflix Streaming on your Wii, here’s the URL to reserve your disc: http://www.netflix.com/I…
HAHAHAH: “But anyway, we fired the guy, and we’re probably going to sue him too.” http://tr.im/L9LL
Is there a name for the fear of inadvertently typing “Love,” as a close in a work email or saying “love ya” in a work call? There should be.
So Scott Brown won. Now let’s get down to the business of making sure socialized medicine never sees the light of day, 1994 style!
It’s amazing how many comments and replies I’ve made and discarded simply once I realized that I actually didn’t care enough to make them.
Camel casing works best when you have an excellent command of word breaks. Otherwise, err on the side of less humps.
“Why don’t you believe God exists?” almost got me there, kid. Classic bedtime stalling technique.
peterbromberg Too many Screencasts and Videos! Just give me a nice article with code examples, please! What is this, Hollywood?
“The Success Admiral?” That’s a new low even for social media d-bags.
Also on lunchtime walk, I found the fabled Ford Clubman: http://twitpic.com/xy2yx
Not sure though if they’ve got pushy salesman trying to sell windshield repair—that’d be full service: http://twitpic.com/xy2p3
@snej Been there. I had a librarian tell me how to get out of paying my $100+ fine once. No, I earned it. Sadly, it was not my highest fine.
2 of the 4 blogs I own now disallow comments. I’m firmly in the I-don’t-care-what-you-think camp (or is it the get-your-own blog camp?)
Long time since I’d read Steve Pavlina. Last I remember, he tried polyphasic sleep. Uh, he’s off in a very different direction. Nevermore.
@Carnage4Life Even when it’s true, no one ever seems to regard it as helpful.
I thought Up was terrible, my first Pixar disappointment. It scared my kids a little—they actually declined seeing it again, another first.
How many more places will Phoenix have to jump before it starts being used as a default in articles and lists like NYC, Chicago, and Boston?
mod_rewrite, you just lost my business. I guess I’ll just have to accept mixed-case URLs. *sigh* again.
Feeling the mod_rewrite pain. I had some mod_alias rules working great until I up and decided that I wanted to change some case. *sigh*
Today was the first recently that I was really looking forward to the kids’ bedtime. If in-laws weren’t here, we might’ve pushed it to 6:30.
OmniFocus upgrade for the iPhone finally makes the thing a pleasure to use. Before it was functional but tedious; now it’s fast and robust.
@dclevitt Google Chrome: speedy, stable, and minimal screen real estate.
The Contract From America is intriguing (though unprincipled) as a Tea Party platform: http://tr.im/JHOs
“That’s not going to be good for business.” “That’s not going to be good for anyone.”: http://tr.im/JHLL
@JivaDeVoe My understanding was that Maps was an Apple application that integrated with Google Maps, not a Google app on the iPhone.
@KendallJu In my experience, “few” is an understatement.
Unintended consequences: http://tr.im/JwLO
@mwickens Amen to that!
@sanbient I’ve been an old fogey since you were playing with Transformers. Wait, bad example. ;-)
I’d still have it if Google Voice offered LNP. I gave up waiting, essentially.
Just cancelled my “land line” with Vonage. I resisted cutting the phone number I’ve had for the last 13 years out of pure sentiment.
@wildfiction In the script? 100%. I’m almost positive that all-male juries didn’t last past the 19th Amendment.
@wildfiction I’m not sure if that was a serious question, but I think “12 Angry Men and Women” or “12 Angry People” lacked the same effect.
@shlevy Yet 1909 was nineteen-oh-nine and 2009 wasn’t twenty-oh-nine. I can’t force myself to care one way or the other how 2010 is said.
@WilliamGreeley Good to know. I’ve got it in my library but Put off reading it for that reason.
@peterbromberg Sorry, I guess your client doesn’t show context for replies. It was about domains. I work at the largest domain registrar.
@peterbromberg I sure hope that never becomes the case. My family will be cast out on the streets, penniless.
I can report that “isoactive” toothpaste is a marketing gimmick.
