Josh’s Lifelog for 2008-08-25

  • I was unable to get my Intel VPN working all weekend (since Thursday, even at home), so I had a mountain of email to climb this morning. πŸ™ #
  • Oh UPS. A two week old Amazon order is showing “Left in a UPS Facility” as of a week ago. Call them, and they won’t do anything to help. πŸ™ #
  • UPS said the shipper (an Amazon 3rd party store) would have to file a claim. Argh! #
  • @bethlubov Perhaps it would be helpful to ignore who “owns” what, and focus on who *does” what. Might simplify things, ideally. #
  • @jmoriarty I’m going to start answering all instances of the question “Who owns that?” with “Intel.” Because Intel owns us, soul and all. πŸ™‚ #
  • Intel installed real, honest Comcast HD cable boxes for the TVs in JF1, to replace the crashy streaming software (http://tinyurl.com/6zs9nq) #
  • @jmoriarty No, I gave up my soul about two years ago to get a Mac. πŸ˜‰ #
  • @aprilholle They never tried to deliver. And the facility where it got “left” is sort of out of the way for me: http://tinyurl.com/57m9r8 πŸ˜‰ #
  • @bethlubov No problem – that person can be called The Decider(TM). πŸ™‚ #
  • @jschultz Whoa. It was just a Google Map from Beaverton, OR to Shrewsbury, MA (where the package is). No idea why Intel choked on it. #
  • @jschultz That’s really weird. Because I’m at Intel right now, and I TinyURL all the time. Dozens of times a day, make and follow. Weird. #
  • Holy cow! There are 1300 sessions in the SXSW 2009 Panel Picker! How on earth am I supposed to go through all those and vote? #
  • @funkatron Thanks – voted! πŸ™‚ #
  • Dear Twitter Followers: If you have a panel submission at SXSW that you want me to vote for, let me know. I’m not digging through 1300 of em #
  • Checking out the new beta of FriendFeed – it’s pretty nice so far. http://beta.friendfeed.com #
  • New FriendFeed design (in Beta) lets you group your friends into lists – very cool! http://tinyurl.com/6e2ky3 #
  • Hmm. FriendFee “lists” have a non-user-specific URL. What happens when someone who’s not me visits? http://beta.friendfeed.com/list/portland #
  • @JeanAnnVK Apparently, those FriendFeed list URLs either give a FF 404 error page, or bounce people to the FF front page. #
  • Arranging my FriendFeed friends into lists. Compulsively. So far I have Intel, Portland, “Never Met IRL”, and Ars lists. What’s next? #
  • @ahockley Ooh. That’s a good idea for a list/group (Photographers). Keep em coming – how else should I slice and dice my friends? (Uh, wait) #
  • @JeanAnnVK Yeah, it would be cool to be able to share my lists on FF. friendfeed.com/jabancroft/lists/listname, maybe. #
  • @grigs No way! We just watched America’s Toughest Jobs. Which one is she? #
