  • Voting on avatar photos for @mungara in staff meeting. πŸ™‚ #
  • @jmoriarty LOL yes, multiple Twitter logins can be dangerous. πŸ™‚ If it makes you feel any better, I’ve done that many, many times. πŸ™‚ #
  • Dear Twitter: How do I tell Safari/Mac OS to open PDFs with Preview instead of Acrobat, permanently, for all .PDF files? #
  • @wgmaxon Thanks! Was asking for @tersteeg, actually, and we were timing how long an answer would take from Twitter. Less than 3 minutes. πŸ™‚ #
  • @jrnoded Thanks! That’s the other half of it. You guys rock! #
  • The Oregon AIr Show starts tomorrow, across the street from Intel Jones Farm. They should be practicing today – I’m listening for big jets. #
  • Let’s do this again. Dear Twitter: What’s the best Twitter client for Linux (on an Eee PC)? Is there a great one? I may just stick to web. #
  • @ahockley AIR for Linux is in Alpha. I’m a bit wary of messing with it, but it would be the best option, opening up Twhirl and the others. #
  • @jarvitron Has anyone installed AIR on Xandros linux on an Eee PC? Can I just apt-get it? Thanks for putting up with me while I experiment. #
  • Got AIR and Twhirl working on the Eee PC. That wasn’t TOO painful, as long as you’re not afraid of the command line. πŸ˜‰ #
  • @kevinctofel @jameskendrick Do you guys publish per-category RSS feeds? I need a feed of your Mini-notebooks category. Thanks! πŸ™‚ #
  • @askseesmic I’m going to write up the Twhirl/AIR on Eee PC steps, eventually, But I just followed the directions on the Adobe site for AIR. #
  • Dear Twitter: What’s the best way to show event-related Tweets on a screen in the halls at said event? What did OSCON, etc. use? #
  • @pdxflaneur That’s exactly what I’m looking for. Do you know what app they used to display the tweets? #
  • @pdxflaneur Yeah, I think it was a custom app. But if you come up with anything, let me know! #
  • Perusing the visual twitter options for IDF with @annierodkins. Checking out the apps on this page: http://tinyurl.com/5aunw2 #
  • Flotzam looks like a good option. It’s a windows app, but that should work. http://tinyurl.com/2nln7e #
  • Going nuts, trying to make sure I don’t forget anything before I leave. Day trip to Mount St. Helens tomorrow, then SIGGRAPH next week. #
