@sonofalink No cell? Geez, most of us would’ve just killed some time playing sudoku. But your plan works, too. Lucky you had that ring.

@eccoMillie CC and the “free culture” might make a good Marketplace story -How I gave my stuff away and still prospered.

TicketMaster can’t seem to answer the simple question “what’s the general range of prices for this show, without picking specific seats?”

New wifi at $WORK is super secure. Designed for hardcore laptop warriors, totally discourages casual use on phones.

Drat, I left my Brussels sprouts on the water fountain at work. You don’t hear THAT every day!

@ThingsWork @ArryPottah Listen to “Comin’ After You” by Owl City and think “hot bird suit”. It changes the whole song.

OK Apple, can we get over this “thin” fetish now? I’d be much more interested in “twice as thick, 5x battery life”.

@eccoMillie And the key… it’s all CC licensed for free use. I met Kliq at a conference about open source & the sharing culture.

I don’t want to be one of those jerks that tweets every time he exercises, but I’m bummed to miss my run because of the cold rain today.

Trying to use functions in bash. Using a home-made convention where the return value goes in a global var with same name as the function.

They should sell whiskey and tequila in the same bottles that ACT fluoride rinse comes in… instant shots!

What are these recruiters thinking? They farm out their cold-calls to very low quality offshore call centers. Terrible first impression!

In fact, Google Voice UX is so bad, I can’t imagine using an Android phone and letting Google manage my contacts there, too.

via Twitter Web Client

Google Voice is a great concept, but Google’s execution is just pathetic. Web UI buries info about callers, groups, and call routing.

I stand corrected (and boy, does it make more sense). MC Frontalot tonight at Kings Barcade. Y’know, the place with Statler and Waldorf!

This morning on the greenway, a couple said they’d seen another copperhead. They had garden tools and a lynch mob look in their eyes.

@base10 I brewed three pots before I got to sit down with a cup.

Our office policy: If you empty the coffee pot, sneak away like a coward. Someone* will brew a new pot soon. (*me)

What a lousy music download experience - from soundcloud to safari to facebook to dropbox to itunes, each step trying to lock me in.

Tonight, I raise my glass to The Captain. Favorable winds to you, my friend.

@TerryMooreII yup, a copperhead… the triangle-shaped head and the “Hershey kisses” marks give it away.

@linode @mdcollins05 Thanks for your help. Fixed my DNS. And don’t forget the AAAA records!

@mdcollins05 @linode Really? I was trying to direct www-foo-com and foo-com to myserver-linode-com. Thought I could set up 2 CNAMES.

They say listening to Mozart makes you smarter. That’s ALMOST enough to even me out today. Because just being in my office makes me dumber.

@linode Hi guys, I noticed I can’t make a CNAME record for “@” (plain domain w/o host name). Limit is in web GUI, not in DNS itself. Fix?

I’m not sure which is worse - that my employer’s internal clone of YouTube does not work for me, or that such a thing even exists at all.
