Microposts from Twitter on 2008-05-15

  • @billpearson is talking to us about "Death by Meeting". Read into that what you will. :-) #
  • I’m going to miss having @jmoriarty and @ajaymm here in person after they go home this week. :-( #
  • @sourcecode Are you thinking of summize.com? That’s the best twitter search site out there (this week, anyway). :-) #
  • @mungara Hope your middle finger didn’t atrophy from disuse while you were here. And I hope you remember how to merge when you go home. :-) #
  • @ISEF08 You really should update TwitterFeed or whatever you’re using to post blog updates to Twitter to drop the "Wordpress Update". #
  • I think I’m going to pave my MacBook Pro today, and start clean. Reclaim some disk space. It’s theraputic. #
  • Holy crap. My iPhoto Library is over 17GB. Sure, I have over 6000 photos in there, but dang! #
  • @influxx It’s kinda sluggish with that many photos, which is why I started looking at library size. I’ll probably move to Aperture soon, tho #
  • Almost ready to pave my MBP and reinstall Leopard. Going to aim for putting ALL of my docs, etc. online (GDocs, Flickr, Blip, etc.). #
  • OK, I’m ready to do this reinstall. Hope it’s done by the end of lunchtime. See you on the other side! :-) #
  • @sumwan Not if you pay $25/year for a Flickr Pro acct like I do. Unlimited storage, unlimited bandwidth. :-) #
  • Repartitioned (no turning back!) and installing now (minus a few gigs of translation files I don’t need). #
  • Hey, Twitter is back! My MBP rebuild went just fine. I was done by the end of lunch, now (almost) all my apps are reinstalled. #
  • Now it’s time to selectively restore some stuff from Time Machine. Some of it’s going to a new permanent home in the cloud. #
  • Wish I’d known about this web app earlier: http://istwitterdown.com/ :-) #
  • Just remembered that The Office season finale is on tonight. Woo hoo! I know what I’ll be doing at 9:00! :-) #
  • Someone just walked by in JF1, on his cell phone, shouting and cursing at someone. He’s in the lobby, and I can still hear him yelling. :-O #
  • Totally bummed to hear that @photomatt’s camera gear (including some Leica stuff and a Nikon D3!) got ripped off from his checked luggage. #
  • Also, @photomatt (Matt Mullenweg, guy who created WordPress) has the coolest blog URL EVAR: http://ma.tt :-) #
  • Every year, as soon as the temperature gets above 80 degrees, someone drowns or disappears swimming in the Sandy river. WTF? #
  • @SharonG You’re right. But that doesn’t mean I’m NEVER swimming in that river. Evar. 😉 #
  • That last tweet made no sense. And I don’t care. The Office is on! :-) #
  • I am totally on fire reading @corydoctorow’s "Little Brother". I read in little bursts, and then I want to go encrypt stuff and fry RFIDs :) #
  • Oops. Cory is @doctorow, but he hasn’t tweeted in a year. You can download his books for free from his site, http://craphound.com. Go do it! #
  • @memathews – Honestly, I’d start with Little Brother. Then maybe Eastern Standard Tribe, Someome Comes to Town, then Down and Out… #
  • @memathews He has great short story collections, too: A Place So Foreign, Overclocked, etc. All great stuff. Can you I’m a fan? :-) #
  • Know why I love to read Cory Doctorow’s stuff? It makes me smarter. It makes me think. It embodies the culture that I live and love. #
  • OK, this is creepy. Twitter is up, but Google (including Gmail, Reader, Calendar, iGoogle, etc.) is down. Is the world ending? #
