Josh’s Lifelog for 2008-10-20

  • Psst – talks for Ignite Portland 4 have been chosen, and will be posted on http://www.igniteportland.com soon. Spread the word! πŸ™‚ #
  • @rachelbancroft Gabe’s been nothing but surly since we cut his hair. Maybe his sweetness was in his blond locks, like Samson? πŸ˜‰ #
  • Aaaand they’re up! The lineup for Ignite Portland 4 (IP4) has been posted. Check them out! http://tinyurl.com/56jtwq #
  • @jmoriarty Probably the same person who looked at a chicken, and said “I’m going to eat the next thing that comes out of it’s butt.” (eggs) #
  • Trying out Firefox 3.1 beta with Tracemonkey turned on (http://tinyurl.com/5j4aye – it’s off by default). Pretty speedy so far. Impressive! #
  • Um, is it just me, or does Google Reader not work AT ALL under Firefox 3.1b with Tracemonkey turned on? Even the iGoogle gadget… πŸ™ #
  • @Nadreck Oops. Thanks for the headsup on the broken links. Should be fixed now! #
  • @edmistond Good call on disabling Gears to fix GReader under FF3.1b. That did it. Thanks! πŸ™‚ #
  • @jezlyn Tell him to enjoy his toy! I’m writing up some “tips and tricks” soon, but basically, go light, use Fullscree (F11), and have fun! #
  • Ugh. I think I’m getting a sore throat. Don’t let me breathe on you. πŸ™ #
  • Oh, man. I think one of my Sony MDR-EX51 earbuds is dying on me. Haven’t had to buy a new pair of these for a long time. *sigh* #
  • @jezlyn Yeah, Linux only ships on the SSD-only Eee PC 1000. The XP-based 1000H is much more prevalent. #
  • @jezlyn For a great Linux option on an Eee PC, try Ubuntu Eee: http://www.ubuntu-eee.com. Everything works, it’s great. but XP is good, too. #
  • @jezlyn The hard drive based Eee PC 1000s seem to be much more common. Easy to upgrade, too. @rodfather went to 320GB. #
  • @jezlyn Yes, the larger screen and more importantly, larger keyboard, make the 1000 quite attractive. Enjoy it! πŸ™‚ #
  • @harrisja I had to disable Google Gears to get Reader working in Firefox 3.1b.. #
  • @JoshProStar Mac or Windows? NetNewsWire is popular for Mac. FeedDemon for Windows. But I’m a Google Reader man, through and through. πŸ™‚ #
  • Ooh, the BrightKite iPhone app is out at the App Store: http://tinyurl.com/bkiteiphone Going to get it now. BrightKite might be useful now. #
  • That BrightKite iPhone app would be even better if I could find it in the App Store on my phone. Let alone install it. *sigh* #
  • Testing the Brightkite iPhone app. I’ve never heard of “Buckheaven, OR”, though. πŸ™‚ – http://bkite.com/01Up7 #
  • Urgh. I’m definitely sick. Sore throat, cough, came on fast. Barring a miracle, methinks I’ll spend tomorrow in bed. πŸ™ #
