  • Preparing to brave the roads!!! #
  • Made it to work alive! #
  • The harpsichord is a lovely instrument. #
  • Public investments in clean-tech should work more like military procurement of new defense technologies and less like federal crop supports. #
  • That was the best line from the article I just posted. #
  • Drive in was fine, but have tried to die several times walking the 4 blocks to my breakfast meeting! #
  • Have I been beaten to it!? RT @ScienceChannel: Man creates beer robot, controlled with an iPhone app: http://ow.ly/3CxMo #
  • Nope, it just shoots beer at you, it doesn't MAKE it… #
  • Hm. Newcastle clone #homebrew is pretty darn Newcastle-y! Need to find a bottle of the real stuff to do side by side tasting… #
  • Made it to Podcastocon West! #
  • Is it possible that @linabaf is done for the day at only 9PM? http://flic.kr/p/9a776G #
  • Timezones mean calling it an early night! #pcclv #
  • Surfing the internet looking for Vegas breakfast options… #
  • Gah, looks like Ceasars doesn't do craps lessons any more. Looking at other options… #
  • Looks like the Monte Carlo around the corner does craps lessons at 11AM daily. Called & Confirmed! #

  • Made $25 in 40 minutes of craps after our lesson! #paysforlunch #

  • Has anyone out there played the "Alan Wake" game on the XBOX360? I'm enjoying overall, but boss battles are lame. #
  • Do NOT get in a hurry and fail to stand in line for the breakroom sink. Two-week old unwashed coffee mug == food poisoning. Feel like death. #
  • Wow, @L_Pre is incredible in this week's Castle! 🙂 #
  • At the Solied Dove Underground to see @azpeacemakers show. Interesting crowd! Sad our summon-drinks light is broken, better get a few now… #
  • I love this venue. One of the band members mom's just chatted with us. 🙂 #
  • Magical link between two concerts I'm seeing this month discovered: both Clyne & Coulton would have They Might Be Giants on desert isle. #
  • Roger Clyne show was a great departure from my usual worlds, and I definitely learned things. Many things. Now to sleep, perchance to dream. #
  • Watching "The @LOST_SKELETON Returns Again"! #

  • Capt. Spectacular is clearly thrilled with his 3rd Christmas. – http://twitpic.com/3jzyxg #
  • Played two games of Munchkin Cthulhu and one game of Forbidden Island with the extended family! Also: Pie. #
  • Dad is running 100+Watts through his HF Ham Radio, which is leaking into the stereo upstairs, and sounds like Peanuts parents… 🙂 #
  • My brother's wife unpacks the Lost Present (which my mom almost forgotnto give her) – http://twitpic.com/3k215m #
  • My brother gave me a ChibiThulhu plushie, which @Kim_Stone is cuddling. – http://twitpic.com/3k21wb #
  • Home! Gifts unpacked and put in filing piles; boy snuggled into bed; reading recipes for the super good canned salmon "candy" mom gave me! #
  • Why working with electronics is messier than just software: – http://twitpic.com/3k9owr #
  • I think that "The Hooters" and "The Outfield" were underrated bands. #
  • Desperately trying to make it through New Moon. Even with the @Rifftrax, it hurts very very badly. #
  • I wish that @LOST_SKELETON was in New Moon. It'd be a lot better. #
  • Massive cheer here when Bella was drowning. Massive boo when Jacob saved her, followed my a massive cheer seeing him shirtless again. 🙂 #
  • "It doesn't make sense for you to love me." @michaeljnelson says (via @rifftrax): "The entire Twilight series summed up in 9 words". #
  • Played a killer game of Iron Dragon with @Kim_Stone and Capt. Spectacular. 1994 game design for 4-hr play is brutal when used to Euro games. #
  • We played with the "fast" rules, but with 3 players it's still 2.5hrs. Wonder if anyone has hacked it for <90 min play… #
  • Capt. Spectacular kicked butt in the game until the last 30 min which were past his bedtime…plus he wrongly thought he couldn't win. #
  • Gratuitous picture of my cat day. – http://twitpic.com/3kw0f9 #
  • Spent 2.5 hrs troubleshooting an embedded coding issue only to discover that the IDE wasn't recompiling included files. Hair == even whiter. #
  • WALL-E reminds us that given enough time, even things that appear to be beyond hope can heal. #
  • Why give your robot a hand when you can give it a coffee-filled boob to grab things with? http://bit.ly/dHq2mk #
  • I am very sad I missed gaming last night due to my code IDE deciding not to compile included files yesterday. GRRRRRR! #
  • Weekday staff at the AMC Highlands Ranch theater is baffled by coffee and 3D. #
  • Capt. Spectacular and his bff insist on eating at Taco Bell for lunch. Thankfully we are at the mall, so I can eat something "healthier". #
  • Tron Legacy: Uncanny valley is shallower, but disturbing. Star Wars nods way too much; 80's hippie zen free love coder miracle = perfect. #
  • The snow is definitely moving in now. #
  • Awesome jam session with Capt. Spectacular and his bff. Best was song about Nantucket and wacky remix of "Crazy Train". 🙂 #
  • Hoping the weather clears up a bit for loved ones flying back home through DIA tomorrow! #
  • At Denver Museum of Nature and Science with Capt. Spectacular and his bff. Going to check out Amazon exhibit! #
  • Capt. Spectacular and his bff try and lift the Anaconda! – http://twitpic.com/3loorj #
  • Piranha feeding time! – http://twitpic.com/3losrl #
  • Happy Almost New Year All! I'm off to teach Capt. Spectacular how to make sushi! #
  • New Year's Eve 2010: Home Made Sushi! http://bit.ly/fUx9p9 #
  • Going to bed since it's the new year on the east coast! Happy new year! #
  • Has anyone written a blog post comparing the Relationships between R2D2 and C3PO to Sam and Frodo? If not, someone should do that. #
  • I just earned the 'Fresh Start (2011)' badge on @untappd! http://untpd.it/gimry3 #
  • Internet features of new Sony Blu-Ray player are more interesting than blu-ray picture. Free Chickenfoot concert video FTW! #
  • Bottled my Newcastle clone #homebrew . Tastes good even without being carbonated yet! #
  • Doctor Who: The Matt Smith Specials: A Christmas Carol may very well be my favorite Matt Smith episode so far. I <3 Michael Gambon. #
  • Emily Care Boss launches a game design challenge today: RPG Solitaire Challenge: http://bit.ly/fiH7D9 #
