Josh’s Lifelog for 2008-08-11

  • Waiting at PDX for my flight to LA. Power is out in the B gates area, they can’t retract one of the jetways. Luckily, not my flight. πŸ™‚ #
  • Power at PDX B gates restored, jetway retracted, crisis averted. Threat level dropped to that ugly gray carpet color. #
  • Waiting for bags at LAX. And noting that Gmail IMAP is not working on my phone. Yet Another Datapoint for the ongoing outage. #
  • Just pulled 1.2Mbps on AT&T 3G at LAX. Nice. πŸ™‚ #
  • To everyone saying “ha ha, that’s why I don’t use gmail!”, first, it’s really annoying. Don’t be a jerk. #
  • Second, let’s compare features, price, and uptime records for the last few years between Gmail and what you use. πŸ˜‰ #
  • Because, you know, no other mail host ever has problems. #
  • @iSundevil I use this page from DSLReports for iPhone speedtesting: http://i.dslr.net/tinyspeedtest.html #
  • @Britopian I wasn’t referring to you (or anyone) in particular. Just noticing a TON of people in general being smug about the Gmail outage. #
  • Reading up on the history of the ACM (Assn. of Computing Machinery) and SIGGRAPH. http://tinyurl.com/698ynn Quite prestigious and acclaimed. #
  • Dear @twitter: I have 2370 followers. A few hundred are probably spammers. I don’t care if you limit to 2000, but don’t punish me for spamrs #
  • @JesseStay No, I don’t follow that many. I follow about 500, but 2370 follow me. Which is subject to the 2000 limit? #
  • @ejacqui Latest Twitter rumor is that they’re capping followers at 2000 per account. 2370 already follow me. If true, no new ppl can follow. #
  • OK, I’m confused. How many people can *I* follow on Twitter? How many people can follow *me*? #
  • OK, so I can only FOLLOW 2000 people. No problem. I’m only following 500 now, and that will likely not grow too much. Sorry for the FUD! πŸ™‚ #
  • @ebohling Yes, it is true. The original iPhone plans weren’t eligible for corp discounts. The 3G is – even the data plan. It rocks. πŸ™‚ #
  • What I’m doing this week: Watching the beginning of the future of computing and software: http://tinyurl.com/5a4zq7 #
  • @Britopian no, my iPhone is not connected to Intel in any way. And I like it like that. πŸ™‚ #
