So proud of my young writers. D1 just passed her goal of 35,000 words. D2 is within sight of her goal.

My office is cold. Think I’ll compute some MD5 sums to heat up the Macbook (I miss my Dell - it always ran unnecessarily hot).

Our Obi202 VoIP box set its clock to 2015, neglected to re-register with VoIP provider, so we missed calls all day.

Elevator dream got tense when alarms went off, announcing the hot cocoa levels were dangerously low!

Crazy dream: huge elevator car, 2 stories inside, looked like something out of Kubric’s 2001, monitors everywhere, 2 full time attendants!

Whew! Party’s over! If the Harry Potter story had been real, Voldemort would’ve never gotten a word in edgewise between the kids yelling.

In my experience, printers… don’t.

Bummed that @ChickfilA dropped carrot & raisin salad from their menu. Wonder if it’s all stores or just our local franchise?

@pwbrewer That’s about right… 10 min for email, 75 min of Twitter, 5 min for coffee, now where was I?

@flyosity Music podcasts while working, talky podcasts while driving or mowing the grass.

@mikbre If your answer was “no”, then that was a rhetorical question. :-)

@jfmecca Already at 1 Credit Union, plus a few other banks. Don’t want to be stuck with my money in one place, too many things can go wrong.

We wrote a check at a store, someone later robbed the store, now bank wants to change our acct # (and up-sell us at the same time).

@nivex I have “DID - Pay Per Minute” for $1.95/mo. With FCC/911, it comes to about $3.50/mo total.

Just spent 15 minutes reviewing my phone call handling rules. Verdict: Google Voice confusing & unreliable, @Callcentric clean & works well.

@nelstrom I bought it because a good friend described it as “life-changing”.

via Twitter for iPhone in reply to nelstrom

Friend recommended “Practical Vim” from @pragprog. Grabbed the ebook. Struggled with maybe print version too. But $9 shipping suggests not.

@nadir_tornow @climagic Root SSH/22 is OK, if done properly. Set “PermitRootLogin without-password”. Sounds scary, but it means “use a key”.

Groundhog day at work. The downside of maintaining several parallel branches with poor fix propagation. Same bugs, different day.

@coxn There’s a difference between HAVING local NTP and DOCUMENTING that we have local NTP. :-)

@pwbrewer 1-line PHP script on my own web server.

via Twitter for iPhone in reply to pwbrewer

Better time sync = set my NTP source to my default router, which (apparently) is kept in sync.

via web

Wondering why the clock on my work PC was drifting. NTP is blocked. Wrote a cron job to fetch time via HTTP and set clock.

Got my new employee badge today - it does not open doors, has no hole to clip to, interferes with my lunch card, and my name is wrong.

@StephenWagner7 Thanks for sharing! I ended up installing vox.

@StephenWagner7 Impressed that you got xmms working on mac. You should package it and share via osx app store!

Amazed that in 2013, our kids are still exchanging 10-digit phone numbers, not something with @ signs in them (like XMPP or AppleID, etc).

@mtdotnet Just like on Facebook, mobile app has a lot of new settings. Note if you use multiple accounts, there are even MORE settings.

Twitter is turning into Facebook. It’s sending me mobile notifications for crap that has nothing to do with me.
