  • @Jmartens UEB needs an extension now, but hopefully soon it will be baked into Firefox and other browsers, as well as MediaWiki and others. #
  • @Jmartens As I understand it, UEB *is* the browser address bar thingy, but a standard icon on the page (a la feed icons) would rock, too. #
  • @marsphoenix just discovered ice on Mars (watched it sublimate). And it broke the news via Twitter. Awesome! :-) #
  • @ahockley If he gets a Mac, you won’t HAVE to support him! *zing* πŸ˜‰ #
  • @ahockley My phone number’s on my blog, dude. Has been for years. πŸ˜‰ #
  • @ahockley But you know what a blog is, right? I’m happy to help, but honestly, I hate the phone. Can they email? I do much better with that. #
  • Hey, everybody! Only 22 more days left until iPhone 3G Day! Count down with me! :-) #
  • @samgrover I actually haven’t decided if I’m going to “line” or “no line”. Of course, I’ll let you all know when I do. :-) #
  • Just upgraded IgnitePortland.com to WP 2.5.1, since I noticed it needed it. Hope nobody minds… #
  • @turoczy Um, isn’t the Bagdad a McMennamin’s joint? #
  • @turoczy Haven’t ever tried the restaurant at the Bagdad. I’ll take your word for it. :-) #
  • If anything’s broke on igniteportland.com, it’s my fault. Lemme know, and I’ll fix it. #
  • @turoczy if you go to that Ascentium thing, lemme know what you think. #
  • Just added the Universal Edit Button WordPress plugin to TinyScreenfuls.com. Works great! :-) http://tinyurl.com/3pktq5 #
  • Playing with Google Trends new ability to track websites, not just terms: http://tinyurl.com/6rwetx (hat tip @steverubel) #
  • Aww, man! “Your terms – tinyscreenfuls.com – do not have enough search volume to show graphs.” *sniff* *cry* :-( #
  • Well, Google Trends for Sites is useless, unless you have a REALLY popular site. Won’t work for blogs, IME so far. Dumb. #
  • The Google Trends for Twitter (http://tinyurl.com/4kgn2b) and FriendFeed (http://tinyurl.com/6sb2hc) are semi-interesting, though. #
  • @Jmartens The UEB only shows up if you already had edit permission. But you already have write access to my brain! :-) #
  • @jmoriarty I think the MID “open or closed” question depends on how much any one company can control. Intel can’t control the whole stack… #
  • @jmoriarty Why only “like” Firefox? MID are going to RUN Firefox itself. It’s the best platform for addons to make mobile browsing better. #
  • @jmoriarty The fact that MIDs run FIrefox is the Number One reason I’m interested in them. I LIVE in Firefox. That’s MID’s advantage, IMO. #
  • @gwalter You need more seats, or more hauling space? Consider a Subaru. AWD, durable, lots of room in an Outback or Forrester. I lub my WRX! #
  • @gwalter Subarus also use very efficient little 4 cylinder engines. Some are even Partial Zero Emissions certified. #
  • @Jmartens Yeah, I can’t quite figure out how a non-hybrid IC engine can be PZEV. Maybe they count “zero” emissions when it’s not running? πŸ˜‰ #
  • Oops. I left “Through the Fire and the Flames” repeating in iTunes through my headphones when I went to lunch. Inflated play count! :-) #
  • Guess what? Yahoo Pipes mangles Chinese characters in RSS feeds. But a round trip through FeedBurner then back into Pipes fixes it. #
  • 1. Photog takes a photo of Iron Man set. 2. Paramount freaks, screams “take it down”, then uses pic in the movie: http://tinyurl.com/58u2t2 #
  • Hat tip to @grigs for the Iron Man photo/slimy Paramount thing. #
  • OMG this will blow your mind. Seriously. From the guy who did WeFeelFine.org, go play with http://universe.daylife.com/ Major attn sink! :-) #
  • I heard Jonathan Harris’s (the guy who did WeFeelFine and Universe) TEDTalk podcast in the car today, and I had to check it out. Amazing! #
  • @ravenzachary Crap! I’d love to come to that Open Mobile Exchange, but I have an all day team meeting July 21. Oh well! See you at OSCON! #
  • @ParanoidMike I’d argue that Microsoft didn’t try to control the WinMobile stack. Anyone could write apps for it. I put it in the “Open” col #
  • Shoot. Brian’s out of town, and I’m not going to get a Bit Stories podcast recorded today. Maybe next week. So much for being on the ball! #
  • @desparoz Bit Stories is definitely back. I just can’t get myself to sit in a room by myself and record when Brian is away. Next week! :-) #
  • I’m 99% convinved to get Guitar Hero World Tour when it comes out, instead of Rock Band. Decisions, decisions! #
  • Reason #1 I’m picking Guitar Hero World Tour over Rock Band: Wii version has downloadable songs (RB Wii doesn’t) #
  • Reason #2 I’m picking GH: World Tour over Rock Band: My current GH guitar will be compatible. It won’t with Rock Band. #
  • @sumwan IGN Xbox had a good article on GHWT today (on phone, no link) that confirmed DL content and guitar compatibility on Wii. #
  • The downside is RB is out in a week, and GHWT doesnt come out until end of October. I can wait! Got no money right now anyway. :-) #
  • Dear Twitter: I need a good pen that I can attach to my (iPhone sized) Moleskine, to carry in a cargo pocket. Small, no lid. What says you? #
  • I’ve been just hanging a schwag pen (Intel, Yahoo, whatever) on it, but there has to be something that fits better. I’m not a pen snob. :-) #
  • Im just wondering if there’s a common pen that moleskine users like, that I can pick up at, say, Target or Staples or wherever. #
  • @tiesque thanks! And here I was thinking Friday night wasn’t a good time to ask esoteric pen questions. πŸ˜‰ #
