More proof that video games (even inane social agricultural simulation ones) lead to violence: http://x.co/JZuy
@kim_mcneill Me? I’m mainly cleaning staff during the party. My wife (a former public school teacher) runs them in groups through stations.
62 guests (that RSVPed) for my daughters’ birthday party this Friday. After last year’s 86 guests, this should be a breeze.
I am so jazzed about this feature I’m working on even though it has an effective audience of one. I love this UI!
“Knowledge for the sake of knowledge had little attraction for the Athenians. They were realists.” — Edith Hamilton, The Greek Way, p. 184
“Knowledge was to be desired because it had value for living; it led men away from error to right action.” — Edith Hamilton, p. 184
Back in town. Very sore. At work tomorrow, please avoid making me stand up as much as possible. My muscles thank you.
@rajnijjer That does sound fun. What’s your personal email address?
As far as strategic acquisitions go, Apple could do worse than Dropbox.
“and I’m comfortable believing your mom raised an insensitive asshole. She should be ashamed.” - Actual hate email from irate blog reader
@rajnijjer You never know when such things might be useful. Better to have it ready when I need it.
First pass at finding @rajnijjer in my wife’s high school yearbooks failed. Fear not, I have access to 4 years before and after her reign.
If you forget to specify a width (like so width=”“) on an img tag, then IE will assume you want that to have a zero width. Crazy.
I just got hate mail on a blog entry from six years ago! I really should blog more, so I can get more little treats like that down the road.
MINI lady said that manual is just like riding a bike and she was right. I only stalled once.
Just when I thought I’d discovered every way to screw up Kraft Macaroni and Cheese, I find a new way.
“The Parthenon was raised in triumph, to express the beauty and the power and the splendor of man.” - Edith Hamilton, The Greek Way, p. 69
Shopping local is nice, but it’s not a virtue. #ignitephx
@rajnijjer Told ya! They’re nice people and there’s so many types of sushi there.
Just got to a seat at Ignite Phoenix.
There’s something slightly exciting about having two deployments during a change freeze.
“A tomb in Egypt and a theatre in Greece. The one comes to mind as naturally as the other.” - Edith Hamilton, The Greek Way, p. 35

Just wrapped up deployment of a feature I hope no one ever sees: malware and phishing checks. For example (I did this one), http://x.co/J0Br
HBinswanger Rush L. has supposedly said “some people are born to be slaves.” The Left is outraged. They think all people are born to be slaves.
@rajnijjer was right: Outsourced the movie is way better than the TV show.
How is this blog entry by an employee even possible? The fact that MS tolerates strident disloyalty has to mean something: http://x.co/Iv8B
And to elaborate, Kick-Ass was more Kill Bill than Mystery Men.
I just ordered this iPad case. It seems like a serious steal at $19.95: http://x.co/Itmc
@ironicsans I don’t think so. One purpose of URL shorteners is to track clicks and they might want to keep all the stats in one place.
Wait, it wasn’t global warming? http://x.co/IrtN No way. I’m so surprised.
@rajnijjer Yeah, 10 slides.
Woohoo! My TechFest presentation was approved. I was a little worried about the Tom Cruise slide, but I guess I shouldn’t have been.
10 slides for an hour-long presentation. That sounds about right, right?
50.4 minutes. *sigh*
They’ve been building for 34.5 minutes already. #firstworldproblem
I HATE BEING IN THE BUILD QUEUE BEHIND THIS SLOWPOKE! BLURGH!
@deejf Yay! I love Spearman!
Mark Steyn nails it again: http://x.co/HH91
Just found out that I’m on the Green Team in Deck Wars for the Jillian Michaels Ultimate Wellness Cruise. #ivegotabadfeelingaboutthis
Had a great time at Freeman Farms this weekend: http://x.co/GaBf (If you’re looking for a great pumpkin patch in AZ, go there!)
Had great talk with daughter about the Code of Hammurabi, free speech, and the status of corporal punishment around the world. #publicschool
