Just wasted an hour shopping at an airline “miles” redemption site, only to be told I am not eligible for gifts, just crappy magazines.

I forgot to turn off RunKeeper, and so it kept recording all weekend… it thinks I ran 28 miles.

@mchapple I was looking up your bio after seeing “Incident Response with NetFlow - for Dummies”, thought you might work for @Lancope (I do)

via Twitter Web Client in reply to mchapple

@mchapple FYI, all of the links on your (m.c.o) web page are returning 404. D’oh!

@mkennedy2d Video resolutions vary, depending on subject. Some as small as 480p. I even cropped a few (using HandBrakeCLI).

@mkennedy2d I’d never dream of re-encoding videos on my phone. I’m basically cleaning up old files on the laptop.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to mkennedy2d

Sorting through videos taken on my phone. The ones I want to save, I end up re-encoding & compressing. 1080p is overkill.

Ebay refunded my money for something I bought that was never delivered. Not as satisfying as you’d think. Jerk still took the $, stuck ebay.

Channel surfing was a lot more fun when it didn’t take five solid seconds for the TV to sync on a channel.

@pwbrewer As usual, your lack of context is perplexing.

Hermit crab update: he’s still going commando… it’s like a crab nudist colony!

I think my epitaph should read: “TypeError: undefined is not a function”.

Hermit crab update: He’s been out of his shell all day. He doesn’t move much, just enough that we know he’s still alive.

RandomSpaceFact To see Comet Lovejoy, search the internet for a finder chart, then use binoculars to look for a fuzzy blob.

Just accepted a “community match” on Words With Friends and opened with a 57 point word.

This morning’s crisis: is the hermit crab dead, or just molting?

@rtphokie @WCPSS There was an email system that I fwd’ed to my phone in years past… I bet I need to resubscribe. <goes digging>

15-page web survey, slow page loads, no page links, just PREV and NEXT, and I need to go back to the beginning (and then back to the end).

My “usually-fast-enough” 6Mb DSL line dropped to 17kb this morning. Not sure why. Much fiddling ensued. Then it just started working again.

@YocDulce You’re OK. I’m OK. I’m just not that Rockhopper.

Fine, I ordered a song on Amazon. That means I want them to run “Amazon Music Helper” on my computer, 24/7, right?

via Twitter Web Client

@plugusin Sometimes, I take pride in the amount of hassle I give and receive at airports.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to plugusin

“For my convenience” I had to install the Amazon music downloader/player, so it could snoop on my computer & control what I do with music.

via Twitter Web Client

@plugusin This just seems wrong to me, paying the gov’t to do a bg check so I can travel w/o hassle. I just opt out, let ‘em frisk me.

Using Stellarium to guide: found Orion, right to Menkar, up to Taurus’s leg (Omicron & Xi Tauri), down to Lovejoy. Cheap-o telescope did OK!

via Twitter Web Client

Looking for comet Lovejoy. Found two satellites first. Comet looks like a dim green mist. Digging out our telescope for a better view.

Watching “Shrek, the musical” (by request of D1). Strangely similar to last night’s “Wicked”.

via Twitter for iPhone

Seeing “Wicked”… apparently, it’s about a candle stick maker.

I have no clue what I am doing. I’m not sure who I should ask… and I don’t know what I should ask them!

Full moon shining in the back yard. Very loud and large-sounding owl hooting. Sounds like he’s close.

I just created my first pull request on @github! Fixed a small mistake in some documentation.

I think I should buy some AAPL stock. My friend @sethwhite86 started working there today, and he’s sure to fix all of their problems!
