Twitter Weekly Updates for 2012-09-23

  • Put the ol' DSL to the test tonight – two people playing LOTRO, Google Hangout + deployment validation testing. #GotABitSlow #
  • Oddly – it wasn't the network that got slow, it was my Mac, once I killed the hangout it was fine. Odd. 40MB DSL, but still. 🙂 #
  • A successful emergency @podiobooks deployment. 3 years of work came to fruition in 3 days. Thanks @brantsteen, @evoterra and @codeshaman ! #
  • Procrastination: @CaptSpectacular was here since Friday night, and waited till 40 min before we had to leave to announce his homework. #
  • Arrr. #piratedayboxchecked #
  • In a plentiful culture, many are liked by few. In a rare culture, few are all the many have to like, so they adapt or starve. #
  • The Internet makes plentiful culture possible at a scale we are just now glimpsing. #
  • I will admit to being pretty delighted with the @github Issue Tracker. #
  • I just uploaded "Dirty Girl Run 2012" to Vimeo: #
  • Oh unit tests. You've saved me from myself again. #

  • Thanks to cooler weather, I was able to get more overhead storage put up in the garage and scrape peeling paint off the house! #
  • Still not sure what I think of Manning in Orange. #ObligatoryFootballTweet #
  • Of late between the day job and school; I've spent a great deal of time with Word. Mostly cordial; rare cursing. We understand each other. #
  • My favorite tweet from 9/12/2011: "Indifference is an underrated virtue". #
  • Word Doc corruption: conquered. #
  • Sometimes the story is better than the truth. But although the story may haunt you, the truth will kill you. #
  • There is little more heartbreaking than a long-running batch job that fails just before the end. #
  • As usual, @brantsteen brings the heat when its needed. @evoterra owes him many beers. #ButtKicker #
  • I must admit that @github 's "close a bug tracker item with a commit comment" feature makes me squee a little. #
  • 300 commits to the @podiobooks codebase * 6 hrs avg dev per commit = 1800 hrs of work! RT @pb2dev: SUCCESS:pb2-ci-master $300 – #

Twitter Weekly Updates for 2012-09-09

  • RT @ForbesTech: Bruce Willis To Sue Apple Over Right To Bequeath His iTunes Library #
  • My 2nd Monday of online classes at @RegisUniversity , and the 2nd Monday in that the online system is down! Coincidence? #IBrokeItAgain #
  • OK BoxBot! It's time to test your mettle! #
  • The iTunes festival has introduced me to Ed Sheeran. U.N.I. from his "+" album is particularly interesting. #
  • BoxBot: "Don't put my GPS antenna so close to my compass!" Me: "It's just an antenna!" BB: "Fine! That's North!" Me: "That's East!" #
  • BoxBot: "That antenna is freaking me out!" Me: "Hmm, there is a giant magnet on the bottom of this GPS antenna…" BoxBot: "See!!!" #
  • #
  • An unexpected benefit of Denver Athletic Club membership: a great Table Tennis lesson with a former Iraqi National Team member. 😉 #
  • A little Iraqi guy shouting "Move! Move!" while a robot shoots balls at you at high speed is suprisingly motivating, and sweat-inducing! #
  • More iTunes festival tonight. Olly Murs and The Milk. Olly Murs = Wham! + Ska, The Milk = Southern Rock + Soul + Ska. #BothExcellent #
  • Tonight's iTunes Festival highlight was the dubstep beatboxer. Haven't figured out his name yet, but amazing! #
  • Love like a muscle grows/with use and time strength is sown/and when trumpet is again blown/the fibers leap/to hold, caress, ache and weep #
  • Yeah, @EdSheeran is about as much of a bard as can be. Proof of what one man with an audience, passion, stories, and a loop pedal can do. #
  • .@Trello is exactly what I've been wanting to organize information for running an RPG session. Web/Mobile multi-media index cards. #
  • So, which is the worse earworm? The Love Boat theme, or the Price is Right theme? #
  • Hmm. Seen 3 brand-new Bentleys in various parts of town this week. #EconomyPickingUp ? #
  • The school exit signs glow red; perhaps to persuade the students that leaving school is the gateway to hell. #
  • You are responsible, forever, for what you have tamed. #
  • This is what folks that make robots celebrate. Not what was intended, but they'll take it. #
  • Proving that @doycet is only 1/2 hipster, his writing netbook only *looks* like a typewriter. #
  • Uh oh. Action Time. #DragonAge #
  • Dang – watching @DaruJones rip it up on drums with Jack White on the iTunes festival is humbling and inspiring at the same time. #
  • It would be fascinating to be able
    to track my cortisol levels on days when I have to drive in parking lots and ones where I don't. #
