Twitter Weekly Updates for 2010-10-24

  • Preparing a recipe mashup of various beer-steamed mussel recipes, trying to decide how they will match with @VictoryBeer 's V-12… #
  • Beer-steamed mussels were good, but I still prefer them Spanish Fra Diavolo style… #
  • Where is Mushmouth when you need him? #
  • I love meetings where we go in antagonistic, and walk out a little more trusting, suddenly realizing we all have the same problem to solve. #
  • Look which member of my bowling team decided she doesn't hate me this week! – http://twitpic.com/2yuxoe #
  • My arrogant quote of the night: "Genre is the place where mediocre media lives and targets. Great media transcends it's target audience." #
  • And now, she grows tired of my conpany… – http://twitpic.com/2yvu3m #
  • Summing up tonight's bowling with a track off the White Album: "Number Nine…number nine…" #
  • And now, she grows tired of my company… http://twitpic.com/2yvu3m #
  • Forcing everyone to use a central tool; combined with synchronized deadlines for all users + overly limited license pool = engineer RAGE! πŸ˜‰ #
  • Another vendor demo. Way too long for introductions. Guys, if there are 40 people on the demo, you aren't going to get all of their stories. #
  • Apple's Facetime for the Mac: I can finally video call from desktop to a handheld. One step toward the future I thought we'd have in 2000. #
  • Playing Burning Wheel with @doycet . I'm playing a princess in love with her male slave. Have a skill called "staff-wise". Begin jokes now. #
  • Capsule Burning Wheel review: Beliefs/Instincts: Great. Base skill checks: fine. FoRK / Helping: a little arbitrary. Book indices: Great! #
  • RT @linabaf: Fashion consultant at work: Apparently my work clothes don't express my personality enough. Is there a Gothypunk business suit? #
  • No-cheese lasanga made using the Spag sauce I made on Tuesday turned out very tasty. It uses a pesto-type concoction instead of cheese. #
  • So, what percentage of your tabletop games could be played if they relied on smartphone apps? How many in a year from now? #
  • Would a tabletop game that relied on smartphone apps lead to greater attention, since people are looking at their phones anyway? #
  • By the pricking of my thumbs… #
  • Prediction: 6-yo girl seated in 2nd row at scary play will scream before the night is over! #
  • The nigh-12yo has developed an awkward barking pre-teen laugh, which is self-aware of, and chooses to draw out excessively… #
  • Nigh-12yo is watching Hellboy Animated. After 10-min: "Liz is just like me, but in girl form." @Kim_Stone adds, "right down to the fire…" #
  • Apple Cider is bottled! Tastes pretty good already! – http://twitpic.com/3082bg #
  • Wow, Argonaut Liqours on Colfax in Downtown Denver on a Saturday night is something else!!! #

Twitter Weekly Updates for 2010-10-17

  • And…that was the roughest weekend I've had in a long while. #
  • Surreality is reality. #
  • RT @doycet: @ChuckWendig dishes on why you should avoid dating writers at all costs. http://bit.ly/a3X6KI — Read it; save yourself. #
  • I would love to have an objective measurement of the creeping lateness I perceive in people arriving for meetings as the merger approaches. #
  • Suddenly realizing that there are lots and lots of files on zip disks in my basement that I WANT. Hope I can hook my zip drive up! #
  • But considering I think it's a PARALLEL device, that might be exciting. #
  • Dang, now that I think about it, it might be SCSI. πŸ™ #
  • The catch-22 of professionalism for certain industries intrigues me. Do I want to hire a lawn company that hands out pretty, glossy flyers? #
  • Or do I want to hire the one that jams grass-stained old-school business cards in my door? One might be more pro, but prolly more EXPENSIVE? #
  • And for once a year lawn care, do I care about pro compared to cost? Hmmm. #
  • One way in which cold weather is worse than warm: coworkers see your jacket and know you are going outside and not just to another floor! #
  • Tasty mushroom barley soup on the stove! #
  • Good conversation with @kim_stone tonight. I love you sweetie! #
  • Taking suggestions from twitter on what kind of beer I should brew once the cider is out of the fermenter. Who has a favorite beer style? #
  • Pasty engineer needs food, badly! #
  • Thanks for all the beer suggestions, everyone! Seems to be settling in on wheat, which sounds good to me! To the recipe builder! #
  • Yeah! Why can't they shut up and silently waste time on the internet like everyone else! #
  • Don't get caught up arguing that the approach to something is valid, when there's a good history of approach good: implementation bad. #
  • Current Beer Recipe is shaping up to be a Chamomille Agave Wheat. Trying to decide if I want to stick with extract, or try all-grain… #
  • This cracks me up and makes my day: Peer manager at work (not about me): "would you two stop bickering over email? I'm trying to eat, here!" #
  • What the? When did a @tokyojoes magically appear at Iliff and Havana? For supposedly living in Aurora, I know nothing of what goes on here! #
  • I am having a requirements-gasm watching this vendor demo. Best demo in the last 3 weeks by a double rainbow-sized amount. #
  • Trying to relax instead of getting enraged with he said/me said silliness with my development team… #
  • …she did. #
  • Where is Fat Albert when you need him? #
  • I'm trying to compile a list of my favorite moments in my RPG history. Common theme so far: unexpected but in-hindsight-inevitable scenes. #
  • I'm imagining a mystery board game like Clue, but multi-dimensional, and with "scenes", where the character relationships are key. #
  • Maybe more like House on Haunted Hill, but with relationships between the characters. #
  • I wish I was more impressed by LEGO Universe than I am. #
  • Char Siu Bao in the making! – http://twitpic.com/2xwhnm #
  • Finished Bao! Mmmmm, smell sooo good! – http://twitpic.com/2xxh5q #
  • Thank the gods that I can finally measure the distance between to points on a Google Map in Smoots AND 1st Temple Cubits! #
  • Finished my mail-in ballot. Some facsinating financial impacts/quandries in this year's crop of amendment proposals… #
  • Now, THAT's a bloody mary! (not mine, I'm having @Deschutes Mirror Pond). – http://twitpic.com/2y6cvq #
  • Email from my father: "Android phone syncs with Google Cal with no setup. Tried to get Outlook to sync with Win Mobile for 2 yrs. F*** M$!" #
  • After exhaustive analysis, I've concluded that Glad Press-n-Seal is the least frustrating way to cover leftovers. Tried many alternatives! #
  • Hopefully, now none of you will have to conduct that research on your own. I've saved you SOOO much time, believe me! #

  • Attn: Game Designers: The end of a Duel of Wits should always give you the trait "exhausted". #
  • Can't resist any more; had to buy @WriteRCastle 's "Naked Heat" on Kindle for iPhone! #
  • My signiature bowling move is the "Tim White Special", a gutter ball followed by a 10-pin spare. This is metaphorical for my broader life. #
  • Just noticed that "Frampton Comes Alive" is on the iTunes "Albums Under $8" list. it's sacrilegious to listen to that except on vinyl. #
  • Also, holy shnikes, iTunes now has that rack in the middle of the isle at KMart where a lot of my early cassettes came from. #
  • I have been successful on a giant list of tasks today. Still have a long list, but I'm getting there! #
  • It is NOT TRUE that I ONLY go to @tokyojoes regularly because they often have cute goth girls working the registers! #
  • A little Return to Northmoor teaser… http://instagr.am/p/EWL/ #
  • Tonight's Northmoor Map "Soahc's Palace"! http://instagr.am/p/FKu/ #
  • I've been on a kick of drinking coffee in the AM and tea the rest of the day. May have to hit a teahouse tonight for a really good cup! #

  • On the other hand, learning what all the powers do and keeping track of them is not simple and does slow things down. But they also inspire. #
  • I declare success on my latest "TPS Report". I have increased the number of requirements to describe how hyperlinks work from 4 to 40. #
  • Wow, the tamale pie I just made with leftover green chile from Tuesday just came out of the oven and looks deee-licious! #

  • <fingers crossed> I think I've finally solved my lingering arc fault in the rock lab. +1 electrician skill today! #
  • Coffee at the developer building is much more potent than the coffee in my usual building. Must be so they can stay up late with offshore! #
  • What's the right way to tell devs "I'm picking this technology as architect, and you can either learn and enjoy, or join the line outside?" #
  • Once again I exploded the brain of an Apple One2One consultant. Sorry! In the end, we both learned stuff, though him more than me! πŸ™‚ #
  • The exact difference between life and love: β€œLife is just one fool thing after another: love is just two fool things after each other.” #
  • Queen's "Radio Ga Ga" rang in my head when I asked the 11yo if he wanted to listen to his choice of playlist or the radio – he chose radio. #
  • There is a community built in to radio that transcends music. There is someone talking to "you" – granting comfort that songs alone lack. #
  • Until your musical identity is formed, having someone else expose you to music is critical, and your parents' taste be be great, but old. #
  • I think @RobinDLaws beat analysis in "Hamlet's Hit Points" may be the language I need to describe the game that I can't get out my head. #
  • I think I'm becoming one of those people who needs an assistant just because they are incapable of using Outlook. #
  • Rock Lab paint not quite finished yet, setting up temporary table for recording tonight.Moving my RealTraps around to try and reduce echoes. #
  • RT Via @waxpancake, this is one hell of an impressive mashup: http://bit.ly/bi6nfX #
  • Thanks, 4:30 AM wrong number! You woke me precisely when my dream was reminding me of an important task, which I was able to write down! #
  • Had a nice time recording a podcast last night with @trapcast_brant and some girl who's show I guess it was. #
  • "I scheduled this meeting for 90 minutes, but I'm sure it will go quicker than that". 75 minutes in, and I'm thinking your surety is flawed. #
  • Have you ever noticed that in general, professional ladies hate their female bosses, whereas guys don't seem to care as much? #
  • "Feel alone, final blow
    We, the animals, take control
    Hear us now, clear and true
    Wretches and kings, we come for you!" #tunesday #
  • Well, if I'd known that ridiculously expensive 14' HDMI cable was the solution to 5 years of tv connection woes, would've bought one sooner! #
  • The AV system all primed and ready for the arrival of my new AppleTV tomorrow! #
  • Stopped by my secret offsite work location today to find my table occupied by a homeless guy in suit and tie, madly writing his manifesto! #
  • It looked like a scene from a crime drama – page after loose-leaf page covered with half-legible scrivenings, scattered across the table. #
  • Near a long-empty coffee cup. No more than a minute to fill each page before grabbing another from a greasy briefcase. #
  • His well-used bic scratching loudly in the quiet, both physically, and mentally with the desperate energy he was projecting. #
  • Would have taken a pic but I was honestly afraid he'd stab me in the eye with his pen! I got a bagel and got out quick! #
  • This may be the least professional presentation I've ever seen of a product I've really wanted to buy anyway. #
  • Just had a duel of wits with my dev team, many unforeseen swerves, but I think we ended up with a very workable compromise! #
  • So far the new AppleTV impresses. Works instantly out of the box.Only wrinkle is that I had to upgrade to iTunes 10.1 to stream from MacBook #
  • Browsing my music library via the AppleTV: I have 1100+ purchased items. Music Industry: people WILL buy if you let them! #
  • RT @StoryShtick: D&D is more like a console than a game – it needs 3rd party support or it just gathers dust like the Wii. Reopen the OGL. #

  • Today's vendor demo: 200% more professional, 500% more boring. #

  • RT @WriteRCastle: Mourning the loss of legend Stephen J. Cannell, great writer and better friend. Poker night will never be the same. #
  • Yeah! Strange brewing in Denver is a winner! Had their "Cherry Kreik" at GABF, but all their beers are delightful! (I had the sampler!) #
  • New business proposal: need to to fast delivery of good food to brewpubs! Maybe a meat pie truck! Maybe touchscreen ordering at the pub? #
  • Ooooh! What's that in my mailbox, why it's LEGO Universe! #

Twitter Weekly Updates for 2010-10-03

  • <fingers crossed> I think I've finally solved my lingering arc fault in the rock lab. +1 electrician skill today! #
  • Coffee at the developer building is much more potent than the coffee in my usual building. Must be so they can stay up late with offshore! #
  • What's the right way to tell devs "I'm picking this technology as architect, and you can either learn and enjoy, or join the line outside?" #
  • Once again I exploded the brain of an Apple One2One consultant. Sorry! In the end, we both learned stuff, though him more than me! πŸ™‚ #
  • The exact difference between life and love: β€œLife is just one fool thing after another: love is just two fool things after each other.” #
  • Queen's "Radio Ga Ga" rang in my head when I asked the 11yo if he wanted to listen to his choice of playlist or the radio – he chose radio. #
  • There is a community built in to radio that transcends music. There is someone talking to "you" – granting comfort that songs alone lack. #
  • Until your musical identity is formed, having someone else expose you to music is critical, and your parents' taste be be great, but old. #
  • I think @RobinDLaws beat analysis in "Hamlet's Hit Points" may be the language I need to describe the game that I can't get out my head. #

  • Had a nice time recording a podcast last night with @trapcast_brant and some girl who's show I guess it was. #
  • "I scheduled this meeting for 90 minutes, but I'm sure it will go quicker than that". 75 minutes in, and I'm thinking your surety is flawed. #
  • Have you ever noticed that in general, professional ladies hate their female bosses, whereas guys don't seem to care as much? #
  • "Feel alone, final blow
    We, the animals, take control
    Hear us now, clear and true
    Wretches and kings, we come for you!" #tunesday #
  • Well, if I'd known that ridiculously expensive 14' HDMI cable was the solution to 5 years of tv connection woes, would've bought one sooner! #
