Reversed the logic on my garage door monitor. Now the magnet activates the sensor when the door is CLOSED.

@pwbrewer or give up the web entirely… it’s a fad, anyway

harrisj Of course, Memorial Day is also the traditional day that the print New York Times switches to a looser, more breathable “summer kerning”

Turning off “Google Now” menu bar… go to “chrome://flags/” in Chrome, uncheck Google Now notifications support, ugh…

@pwbrewer Are you projecting on me again? If so, start doing something a little more fun, you nerd!

luketadams The best way to honor our injured and fallen troops is to do everything in our power to make sure that there are less of them in the future.

Bummer… apparently, fail2ban does not yet support IPv6.

Found the elusive misplaced FitBit. Battery still alive, so I roamed the house, syncing & setting alarms until it appeared in a coat pocket.

Love the new @wunderground app… too bad the forecast is always 10°F too high.

My dream last night: I was on an @Oracle employee shuttle bus, got a seat next to Larry Ellison, tried/failed to take a selfie to prove it.

@SalemElementary Red bus just left at 4:43? And classes let out at 3:45? Why?

I used to love Perl in 1997, but I have not used it in a long time. I had to today, and I decided that I hate it.

QOTD: The bar for being above average in IT is so low that you have to be careful not to trip over it while walking to the coffee pot.

Wow, that little cat nap turned into a three-hour slumber!

Overheard in our house, starting today, for the next 107 days: “Can we go to the pool?”

D2 and I get an unexpected breakfast date because of a canceled music class and a traffic accident near our neighborhood.

ginnyhendry Programming is like writing a book except if you miss out a single comma on page 126 the whole thing is nonsense.

@OldCrank Maybe you would prefer a CarolinaCon shot glass?

Actually, *MY* co-workers will need it explained to them, but I can still feel the envy of the co-workers in the office of my imagination.

Drinking coffee from my new CocoaConf mug. Not sure it tastes any better, but I can just feel the envy of my co-workers.

We had to say goodbye to another hermit crab this weekend. Barney was a good crab. He never pinched ME, at least.

Met a guy “Cameron” who works in “marketing” (MLM). Marking my calendar for his unsolicited follow-up call. I’m guessing 2 weeks from today.

Uploading a video to my web server. Using my DSL line at home, it took 2h46m. Using my cell phone’s LTE connection… 5m15s.

I closed all of the windows and the rain stopped.

via Twitter for iPhone in reply to rockhopper

Hot in the house, so I opened the windows. Not 5 minutes later, it started raining. Guess I’ll sit inside and sweat.

Note to self… to rip a CD to MP3 on Ubuntu, you have to install “ubuntu-restricted-extras” first. Twitter remembers these things.

Cool, I just discovered “apt-get changelog <packagename>”.

When I finish reading a good book, I give it to my local library (which is good, since many of them belong to the library to begin with).

.@romanmars @SuperFlange Well, actually, it’s not Roman… it’s his boys, Mazlo and Carver.

Wow, I did not realize that all I had to do was print “Please wait while the page loads…” and I could take as long as I wanted.

I would think that “nonfiction” deserves a less comparative word of it’s own. Same for “unsweet” tea.

@GrizzlyGuru I saw that irony too. Twitter is s’posed to be social. But should my “to do” app tell all of my friends that I need a hair cut?

via web in reply to GrizzlyGuru

I’ll be glad when apps get over this ‘social’ phase and I can go back to being ‘anti-social’.

@jdriscoll just an accept-vs-except gag… is that exceptable?

@Sync I gave up waiting on sync.com for Linux… so now I am using BitTorrent Sync… no cloud, just my own machines.

@jdriscoll I take acception to that!

I am suffering from “too much credibility” at work. I make an off-the-cuff comment, others interpret that as “the plan” & seek my approval.

Any process that requires two people to work on it actually takes THREE steps: (1) A’s work, (2) the handoff, (3) B’s work.

@m_thain_xbnr Welcome! Twitter is all about who you follow & choose to be exposed to. It’s not just what I had for breakfast (banana).

It’s fun to listen to the kids at the bus stop talking junk about their teachers. I can only imagine what the teachers talk about!
