Josh’s Lifelog for 2008-10-30

  • Dear LazyTwitter: Anyone know of a way to track the actual number of feed subscribers, besides FeedBurner? #
  • @JoshProStar Dude, it sounds like your Windows machine is eating itself from the inside out. ndis.sys is a kind of important file. ๐Ÿ˜‰ #
  • @jmoriarty Good luck and have fun with #ignitephx tonight, dude! Portland’s cheering for you. :-) #
  • iPhone/iTouch people – make sure you get Griffin’s iTalk recorder app while it’s free, and the desktop sync app: http://tinyurl.com/5eo8ce #
  • Voting with @rachelbancroft #
  • Voted. That Commisioner of Labor and Industries race is neck and neck. Tough call. Hope I picked the right guy! ๐Ÿ˜‰ #
  • @ahockley The UPS store at the convention center is how I shipped my giant Channel 9 beanbag home from PDC05. Saved my bacon. :-) #
  • @ahockley Yes, my Channel 9 Guy beanbag is the best swag ever. Here are a few photos: http://tinyurl.com/6zz25c #
  • @jmoriarty Congrats on killing it at Ignite Phoenix. Wish I could have been there. You rock! :-) #
  • @wesley83 I heard about you via @jmoriarty. Always nice to connect with a fellow social media geek inside a big company. :-) #
  • @verso The Aiptek model I like is the Go-HD. Shoots 720p to H.264 Quicktime files. It’s $161 right now at Amazon: http://tinyurl.com/59tasc #
  • @verso It’s more expensive, and honesly, the 1080p files are TOO big, IMO. Not in bytes, but in pixels. I have the 1080p one. I run it 720p. #
  • Never know what kind of a mood (swing) I’ll be in when I wake up each day. Looks like today is going to be a “Josh is Surly” day. Be warned. #
  • @ihenpecked Don’t worry. I tend to withdraw and not tweet so much when I’m having a surly day. You’re safe. :-) #
  • Just remember that I have an MSDN account through work. When does Windows 7 hit MSDN? I want to try it on netbooks/MIDs/UMPCs. #
  • @ihenpecked I can’t help you with surly people in your office. Recommend headphones or a two by four. ๐Ÿ˜‰ #
  • @jltitus MSDN = Microsoft Developer Network #
  • @jltitus You bet. Next week sometime, maybe? #
  • Working on tweaking a Netvibes “listening post” dashboard for general Intel stuff for a presentation this afternoon. #
  • @jltitus Next Friday afternoon will probably work. Wanna stick something on my calendar? #
  • @verso Well, if you’re going to display on a TV, and it’s not much more, go for the 1080p version. Optical zoom is a must. Digizoom = suck. #
  • Hot dang. Along with the Ubuntu 8.10 release today, Ubuntu-MID and Ubuntu-UMPC are out. Grabbing now. Thx @chippy! http://tinyurl.com/6o4tge #
  • Going to put Ubuntu-UMPC on my Asus R2H UMPC, and Ubuntu-MID on the Compal MID device I have. Can’t wait! :-) #
  • @verso Which model, specifically, are you looking at? I’ll let you know if I endorse that candidate. :-) #
  • @wesley83 Why, Intel, of course. :-) http://www.tinyscreenfuls.com and http://software.intel.com/en-us/blogs for more info. #
  • @b I did! I linked to @chippy’s post on UMPCPortal, which has links to the Ubunutu-MID/UMPC distros: http://tinyurl.com/6o4tge #
  • @wesley83 Whatever you want to say. Just connecting, to get to know you, etc. No specific requests. :-) #
  • @verso That one doesn’t have optical zoom, but otherwise, it should be great. Affiliate link, if you care to use: http://tinyurl.com/5g68z8 #
  • @verso The Go-HD (720p) http://tinyurl.com/59tasc or the or A-HD Pro (1080p) http://tinyurl.com/5un86l Both have 3x optical. I have both. #
  • @JoshProStar Yay – glad to hear it. :-) Thanks for all the kind words. I really appreciate it. :-) #
  • @verso That’s the one I have (mine’s branded Action HD, but it looks identical, spec-wise and visually). 1080p, 3x optizoom. I paid $199. #
  • @jltitus There’s already a ton of conferences in that general area (social media). A new one would need a niche I think. Chat more next Fri? #
  • (via @jmoriarty) Apparently, someone like Ignite Portland so much they stared a CafePress store: http://tinyurl.com/6784jh Anyone know who? #
  • Dangit. I wrote the Ubuntu-8.10-MID image to a USB stick, everything seemed to go OK, but Compal MID only says “Boot Error”. *cry* #
  • So FriendFeed can post to Twitter directly now. Nice. But by default, it posts EVERYTHING from your feed to Twitter…. http://ff.im/sJ #
  • FTR, I’m not sending everything from my FriendFeed into Twitter. Just messages I post to FF itself. Like this one. http://ff.im/sR #
  • On the upside, this goes a LONG way to making Josh’s Greater Theory of Internet Tubes simpler and easier to implement. :-) http://ff.im/sV #
  • Trying out that new free AT&T wifi on my iPhone. Works pretty well. http://ff.im/vG #
