Microposts from Twitter on 2008-06-26

  • Breakfast of Champions: free Mt Dew from Intel, and a bag of bulk Sour Patch Kids from WinCo. Ah, sugar; my muse, my enemy, my fuel… #
  • @Jerry_Makare Thanks, I think, for the Mario Batali comparison. But just so everyone knows, he swiped the orange Crocs thing from me! πŸ™‚ #
  • Oops. I had accidentally posted that last logged in as @pulseofintel. That’s what I get for having multiple Twitter personas. πŸ™‚ #
  • Well, it only took a day for the “Intel says no to Windows Vista” news to spread ALL OVER Twitter and FriendFeed. #
  • @lightingdiva Do it. You won’t regret switching. You can even run Windows (Vista or XP) in a virtual machine if you *really( need it. #
  • @banannie Another reason I don’t like Plurk. The term “Plurk-up” is just GROSS. πŸ™‚ #
  • @Jerry_Makare I know who Mario is. I just have a make believe grudge against him for biting my “orange Crocs” style. πŸ˜‰ #
  • I’m hungry. No car today (mine’s still in the shop), and I’m still boycotting the Intel cafeterias. Guess that means Cup Noodles again! #
  • Booking my travel/hotel for SIGGRAPH2008 in L.A. in August. #
  • @davechen Intel’s doing a blogger meetup at SIGGRAPH, to show off some cool new Larrabee stuff. Wanna come? #
  • @JoshProStar No, it’s not possible to Twitter too much. Just look at my tweet count. Or @scobleizer’s. πŸ™‚ #
  • @davechen It’s on the 12th, at the conference. Email me (joshua.bancroft AT intel.com) and I’ll get you on the list, send details, etc. #
  • @jezlyn Kindle tip: use the “sleep” mode to lock keys (cool photos!). Get free books from manybooks.net, feedbooks, Creative Commons, etc. #
  • @marusin You bought a Kindle? Again? πŸ™‚ I knew you couldn’t stay away for long. Welcome (back) to the club! #
  • @blath re: lunch delivery it doesn’t work so well out in the suburbs, at a giant company’s campus. Not many options, hard to give driections #
  • @blath but if I’m going to keep up my Intel cafe boycott, I should probably look into delivery options. Thanks for the idea! πŸ™‚ #
  • @SarahCofer you’re looking for something to record a video stream? There are some apps that do that. Or a screen recorder app like CamStudio #
  • @SarahCofer link to CamStudio (free, open source Windows screen recording software): http://camstudio.org. Takes some experimentation. #
  • @bobduffy I don’t know what book @mediumtall referred to, but if there’s one book of principles to build a community on, it’s Cluetrain. #
  • @bobduffy Subject to Change sounds interesting. I’ll have to check it out (even more likely if they have a Kindle version!) Thanks! πŸ™‚ #
  • @kegill @SarahCofer yes, SnapzPro is a good screen recorder for Mac. I use and love iShowU ($20), and people RAVE about ScreenFlow ($99). #
  • @verso You’re getting Twitter 503 errors because too many people in Portland are tweeting, and summoning the Failwhale. πŸ™‚ #
  • Toying around with the idea of turning my iPhone 1.0 into my house’s webserver/SSH tunnel after I get an iPhone 3G. Geek plusity plus! πŸ™‚ #
  • @ahockley I am. Are you the gatekeeper? #
  • Just created a profile for myself on Whoisi, because @davewiner said all the cool kids were doing it. http://whoisi.com/p/759 #
  • @blath Yeah, I’m not sure how whoisi will handle malicious/unwanted edits. Seems open like a wiki, maybe the same community quality model? #
