Microposts from Twitter on 2008-05-01

  • Gabe is sick. He was very clingy and cuddly this morning (he’s usually bouncing off the walls), and felt warm. Poor little guy… #
  • @davest Can’t wait to see the photo. Come by sometime today, and I can help you fix that video post on the blog, OK? :-) #
  • Did you know that Intel pays the paychecks of developers responsible for 4.1% of the changes to the Linux kernel? http://tinyurl.com/2s9oma #
  • According to that study, the only companies that "sponsor" more of the Linux kernel work are IBM, Novell, and Red Hat. Pretty cool, i think. #
  • @ahockley But isn’t that exactly what an OpenID-enabled blog does (makes you go somewhere else to sign in to leave a comment)? 😉 #
  • @podcasthotel I’m a blogger. I’ve been using Firefox 3 exclusively since beta 2, starting a few months ago. #
  • @elliot I tried Flock a while ago, but there were just enough differences/incompatible addons that I switched back to Firefox. #
  • @Jerry_Makare Dude! You started a blog, all on your own! That’s awesome! I’m subscribed. :-) #
  • @flocker I’m open to trying Flock again. Can you give me a 140 character summary of why it’s better than Firefox 3? #
  • @conroyl Sarah seems to like her Dell XT. I’ve heard good things about it. I also love the Lenovo X61 Tablet. Both would be great. #
  • @conroyl Only thing you do that might not work well on one is Second Life, because it’s so graphics intensive. But I don’t know for sure… #
  • @conroyl Yeah, but blue screens are just the price you pay for running Windows. The Blue Screen Tax. Makes you feel just like the IRS. 😉 #
  • I need to find some time to digest and understand @marshallk’s new blog/RSS microsite tool, BlogCentral. Very cool http://tinyurl.com/6zy63e #
  • @conroyl I think Dell might put XP on it if you ask them. But tablets are one area where Vista is VASTLY improved over XP. Tough call… #
  • Just fixed @davest’s video problem on the ISN blog. Go watch him talk about OpenSolaris on Xeon! http://tinyurl.com/64xlvz #
  • I love being surround by smart people at work, who are free to make cool things happen. :-) #
  • @debbieweil My friend @jmoriarty has a successful PowerPoint-free presentation using a wiki. Maybe he could tell you about it. #
  • Someone’s having a very loud conversation with someone else, about whether their daughter should do track or color guard, 10 feet from me. #
  • This is the down side to the new open work environment at Intel JF1. Some people just don’t stop to think about their loud convos being rude #
  • @Jerry_Makare I like the serendipity of people coming by and stopping to talk, but random loud conversations are annoying… #
  • But my cube/desk is in a bad spot for that – along the busiest corridor in the building. Top of the hour, when meetings get out? Chaos. #
  • @davest Yeah, but I LOVE the view/location of my cube. I don’t WANT to move away from the kitchen! :-) Just wish people were more respectful #
  • I’m sure I’m being hypocritical, though, and that I’ve annoyed others with loud conversations before. I guess that’s what headphones are for #
  • I guess I should have just put in my earbuds and tuned it out, instead of complaining. So that’s what I just did! :-) #
  • @ejacqui Yes, Twitter via Twitteriffic has been off and on for me all day so far. Not fun. #
  • ZOMG "@iraglass is now following you on Twitter" *swoon* :-) #
  • @davechen @ejacqui Lots of people complaining. It’s pretty clear the Twitter API is taking a nap today… #
  • @oleoptene Never got many responses to the "old enough to Twitter" InstaPoll. I think you guys are the leaders in that area. :-) #
  • @oleoptene Although I look forward to teaching my kids how to Twitter (with supervision) as soon as they can read and type. :-) #
  • Here’s an opportunity for Intel’s HPC/scaling/performance/software gurus to show off and do some good. Help Twitter fix their darn problems! #

  • Great case study on Juniper Networks piloting employee use of Macs. http://tinyurl.com/6gmld2 #
  • Intel has been doing a 500 person pilot of Macs for over a year now. I’ve been using Macs at Intel for a little longer, spreading the word. #
  • "Steve Jobs doesn’t need a sales force because he already has one: employees like the ones in my company." :-) #
  • @lyzadanger I have limited powers, but I’ll see if there’s anything I can do. :-) #
  • @rodfather Got a link to the new Aiptek camera? I just got approval to buy a second Go-HD for our group, might get the new one if it’s good. #
  • @rodfather Thanks for the heads up on the new 1080p Aiptek camera. Going to try to get that one instead. Only available at Wal-Mart, tho. #
