Microposts from Twitter on 2008-05-06

  • Thank you to everyone who has shared kind words with me in the last 12 hours or so. I love you guys! :-) #
  • Here’s why I can’t make myself stop using Twitteriffic, and switch to Twhirl, Alert Thingy, or Spaz – it uses Growl for notifications. #
  • I want to love the other AIR-based Twitter clients, but Growl notifications are so pretty! (Especially with the iPhone theme.) #
  • @funkatron I’ll install whatever you tell me to. #
  • Yay! The new Google Reader Shared Item Notes get preserved perfectly in my linkblog (which runs on soup.io) http://linkblog.joshbancroft.com #
  • @verso It’s a close call between Tumblr and soup. Soup lets me have more than 5 feeds. It doesn’t auto-tuncate stuff. It’s ajaxy and pretty. #
  • @tokerud Honestly, Google Reader killed del.icio.us for me YEARS ago. I haven’t used it in ages. The new Notes are just icing on the cake. #
  • @funkatron How well would that work behind an HTTP proxy (like me at work)? I’ll help you test it if you want. #
  • @influxx You can make Twhirl not QUITE so ugly – pick a darker theme, change the font to Verdana 12 (I think). But Twitterific IS prettier. #
  • Another thing I love about Twitterrific (that other clients could copy easily): Cmd+2 to reply and Cmd+D to direct message someone. #
  • And something that bugs me about soup.io: it takes hours, if not a day or so, to update the RSS feed that it generates. Boo! :-( #
  • @funkatron Yes, I know. But Spaz isn’t ugly to begin with, like Twhirl. 😉 #
  • @RichSPK It’s not that different keyboard shortcuts are better, per se, but that they’re DIFFERENT. Muscle memory is hard to relearn. #
  • @tokerud Do whatever works best for you – delicious is still an awesome service. Competition among these is good for us! :-) #
  • @billpearson You’re right – my web connection just blows today. I hate it when the Intel proxies get cranky like this! :-( #
  • Dear Twitter: Isn’t there a keyboard shortcut in iTunes to jump directly to the Search box? It’s really annoying to have to mouse up there. #
  • @Irek You’re right – Tab does sort of work to get to the search box in iTunes. Depends on where focus is to start. Thanks! :-) #
  • What other web awards are out there, besides the Webbys, WebVisionary, and SXSW/Adobe? #
  • @eeUS Thanks! @influxx thanks for FWA, too. I’ll check it out. Keep em coming! :-) #
  • @Jerry_Makare Ooh, that looks interesting. I’d love to see the ISN Take Five video site win some awards! :-) #
  • @kellyrfeller The new Intel.com doesn’t work at all (past the "Pick a Country" page) on BlackBerries and my Kindle. :-) #
  • @kellyrfeller I’m also told it doesn’t work at all if you have Flash disabled. #
  • Whoa. FriendFeed picked up a Google Reader Note and turned it into a FriendFeed comment. That was cool – @scobleizer, did you hear that? 😉 #
  • @kellyrfeller @sharong I tested the new Intel.com on my iPhone, and it actually works pretty well, even without Flash. #
  • @ahockley Oh? How should Intel use Silverlight. Do tell! :-) #
  • @psteinb has swiped my little Aiptek video camera, and is going around ambushing people in their cube’s for interivews. :-) #
  • Including me – I was the first one he ambushed. :-) #
  • Oooh. @chartier sez that Brightkite’s iPhone version of the site is finally available. I’ll have to to play with it. #
  • @smb Look at http://friendfeed.com/jabancroft/comments That comment on the Little Brother item came from a note I wrote in GReader. #
  • @smb Yeah, it would be cool if GReader did it. But since FriendFeed does it, you could just comment over there. :-) #
  • The BrightKite iPhone website works. It’s pretty. But I want it to grab my location from the phone, and offer 1-click checkin. I’m greedy! #
  • Hey Twitter – how do I replace the audio track of a Quicktime movie using Quicktime Pro? I’ve extracted and editing, now I need to replace. #
  • A ha! "Add to Selection and Scale" does it! Woo hoo! Now I can fix audio tracks in Levelator! Me= happy. :-) #
  • @Jerry_Makare You gotta come see this audio wizardry we’re doing. :-) #
  • @annierodkins Prune your Twitter list mercilessly. Go through it, and remove anyone where you have to think "who is this person?". Trust me. #
  • Wow. My whole Twitter UI (web) is in Japanese, all of a sudden, too! #
  • @jmoriarty what was the Ignite Phoenix URL? I haven’t heard of one there. You should do one! :-) #
  • @jmoriarty you’re right – that doesnt look anything like an Ignite or pecha kucha event. You should still do one. Just call it smthng else. #
