So proud of my little ukulele player. She gave a great performance in the Salem Showdown talent show!

Drinking plain soda water, because soft drinks either have nasty corn syrup or dubious artificial sweeteners. Bubbles are nice.

Removing unused services.

via web

@coxn What a coincidence, I was just removing a lot of unused services from my personal web server.

@emmarockin Nice… maybe I’l ride it to work.

Boy Scouts taught me to light a fire with just 2 matches. Lake swimming taught me a submerged Bic lighter will dry out & light many fires.

Finally broke down and downloaded a flashlight app for my iPhone. Never really liked the idea… but the walk home tonight was DARK.

Hey, @blockbuster, when your iPhone app says “2 copies”, that’s supposed to be copies IN THE STORE, not checked out. Wasting my time.

Oops, maybe my dinner plate was not such a great place to put D2’s tooth after it came out.

@emmarockin Get in the habit of flossing now, or your dreams will come true later.

@pwbrewer Yeah, depending on how much thought you put into your tweets, those 14 tweets can really cut into your 12 hours. Don’t over-do it.

@pwbrewer Sure, you can borrow the USB floppy drive if you need it. It “just works” on a Mac.

via Twitter for iPhone in reply to pwbrewer

The kids wanted to paint fairy tale scenes on the walls, so we’re starting with colored rectangle backgrounds. Detail work to follow soon.

I came across a USB floppy disk drive last week, and a box of floppies this week. Darn, no lost treasures recovered.

Good morning, Texas!

@Square I sure wish the legal guys tracked changes like the software guys do. New seller agreement needs a simple changelog. Or a web diff.

Teaching our kids to recycle has backfired. They’re afraid to put anything in the landfill, so now they are packrats, our house is a mess.

@nivex More than anything else, this was an excuse to learn the @linode API.

via web in reply to nivex

DynDNS is moving to an annoying “log in every month (or pay)” model. So I replaced them with a cron job script that updates @linode DNS.

Had to delete and re-enter the shortcuts (in settings / general / keyboard)… twice. That jogged its memory.

via web in reply to rockhopper

iPhone seems to have forgotten how to do keyboard shutcuts.

Why does @WeDrawSomething send me two push notifications for each turn? (1) “has sent you a drawing” (2) “just took a turn”

via Twitter for iPhone

You know, @WordsWFriends, push notifications are not supposed to be used for promotions like “It’s your turn to RUN”. Go read your TOS.

@jimmythrasher @BarCampRDU Congratulations! I think that question makes you the official organizer!

@secmoose A password should be a phrase that makes you smile. You’ll type it a lot. Use it to put you in a better mood.

@RobertFischer I had to give it a listen, b/c you turned me on to @daveslounge and @chillcast, but sorry, I just don’t have the blues.

Code review comment: If you cut-and-paste code, then maybe on next payday, we will just give you a photocopy of last week’s paycheck.

Putty for Linux tip - during a running session, use ctrl + right-click to get the session menu (to change appearance, open new session, etc)

@SpiderOak Somehow, this does not seem very “headless” to me.

via web in reply to SpiderOak

@SpiderOak How do you disable the Hive from a headless box? Tried exclude-dir, but it comes back.

via web

@SpiderOak While we’re at it, why create a default shared folder with a SPACE IN THE NAME? Trying to flush out poorly-written apps/scripts?

via web

@SpiderOak creates a new directory on my devices. Not cool. Wrapping my head around the Hive. Just a default share? That I can’t delete?

During Debian upgrade, wondering why some packages ask questions using “dialog” (curses) and others use “readline” (plain text prompts).

OK @rushtheband, I finally got my tickets… looking forward to letting you “educate” my kids in Raleigh this weekend.

@ChuckWendig Is that F-bomb an adverb or a gerund?

@PNCArena If I buy tix at the box office, do I still have to pay the “convenience charge” or is that just a TicketMaster thing?

Darn, I hate it when I post my own tweets from the wrong account.
