Twitter Weekly Updates for 2012-10-07

  • Mindset you get in when reading academic papers is like the Shakespeare mindset; once you are in it you can't stop talking pompous. #
  • Oh safety training videos from the early 80's. SO HILARIOUS. Oh wait, they are serious. Oooh, Hantavirus training? This is getting creepy. #
  • Celebrating completely hack-free @podiobooks Google results! 🙂 #
  • Interesting thoughts on why posted software professionals' salaries don't appear to be going up, despite high demand: http://t.co/vwjUg5re #
  • This may affect me next week. http://t.co/KCheSxuh #
  • I am in serious need of jam time. I have drums, keyboards, basses, guitars, and mics. I will play any or all of them. Who's in? #
  • To be clear folks, if you want to come Jam with me this weekend, knowing what you are doing is not a requirement. I will be happy to teach! #
  • Class instructor: "Format your paper per APA 7th Edition guidelines". Me: "APA is only up to 6th Edition." Them: "Right." #
  • Me: "APA 6th doesn't call out how to handle this, but what it does say, seems to indicate X." Instructor: "Do it Y, like on this site." #
  • Me: "That site says to do it X." Instructor: "No, do it Y, like the example on the site, not like the guidelines." #
  • Me: "That example says 'this is APA *5th* Edition format'". Instructor: "Just do it way Y. I tire of you engineers and your need for logic." #
  • This is what American higher education teaches you: Think critically, until the teacher tires of you. #
  • Well, One Direction on the iTunes Festival is cute, but I expect some short dresses and hilarious attempted dancing from my brit pop. #
  • I do think @CaptSpectacular could pull off Harry Styles from One Direction as a Halloween costume. #
  • finished Hidden Things by Doyce Testerman and gave it 5 stars http://t.co/CSL1gVe2 #Kindle #
  • Snarky @github comment exchanges are my new favorite thing. #
  • Today's jam time with @Jsquared1975 was excellent. JJ knows how to rock. #
  • School paper complete, @podiobooks calmed down…time to nap, I think. 🙂 #
  • Hmm…latest contingency planning hotline update was "encouraged by the progress." That sounds promising. #
  • Contract extension! Tomorrow is for partying! #
