  • In the office before 7AM. I have like 10 meetings today. Gonna be a long one… :-( #
  • RT: @igniteportland Ignite Portland 4 tickets (free) are now available. Beat the lines! Get a ticket! More info: http://tinyurl.com/6rwbsr #
  • @kmcdade Yes, Ignite Portland 4 will be recorded. Videos should be posted soon after the event at igniteportland.com #
  • Ignite Portland 4 tickets are going fast – 2 hours after the announcement, more than half are gone. Wow. You guys move fast! :-) #
  • @blogan If you’re coming to Ignite Portland 4, you’d better hurry and get your tickets. Only 117 left (out of 550). :-) #
  • Um, there are only 8 tickets left for Ignite Portland 4. Unclaimed tickets will go back in the “pool” after 24 hours, so there will be more. #
  • And they’re gone! At 11:56AM, all 550 Ignite Portland 4 tickets have been requested. Dang. Less than 3.5 hours. Last time, 400 went in 22hrs #
  • RT: @igniteportland You can still come to Ignite Portland 4 if you didn’t get a ticket. See how: http://tinyurl.com/6hl7uz #
  • @mobilehippie You can still get in to Ignite Portland 4: http://tinyurl.com/5tdyns Last time, the whole GA line got in, no problem. #
  • Jealous of whoever drives the Nissan GT-R I spied in the Intel JF1 parking lot. That this is a technological marvel, and my dream car. #
  • Whoa, waitaminute. Orson Scott Card is writing a direct sequel to Ender’s Game – Ender in Exile: http://tinyurl.com/5nh3ns DO WANT!!1! #
  • @ihenpecked You can get Ender’s Game and its various sequels for cheap at Amazon (http://tinyurl.com/6nof5q) or the library. Great scifi. #
  • @mulderc I haven’t read any Card since, oh, Shadow of the Hegemon. but LOVED the Ender books. #
  • @SharonG It seems the Ender’s Game movie was supposed to happen this year, but is up in the air seeking a director http://tinyurl.com/56lq27 #
  • @ihenpecked Not sure where he’s writing these days. I used to follow his blog, hatrack.com, but drifted away years ago. #
  • Hey, you. Who hasn’t voted yet. Go do it. Vote. Seriously. Please. It’s important. Do it. Please. #
  • To all of you who can’t vote until tomorrow, that’s OK. Just do it anyway! And get your state to adopt vote by mail or something modern. πŸ˜‰ #
  • OK, we knew that iPhone 2.2 has Street View and walking directions, but it also has OTA podcast updating. Awesome! http://tinyurl.com/5e8rev #
  • @dswiese I’m thinking yes, that Apple knew OTA podcast downloads were coming, and THAT was the duplicate functionality they were talking abt #
  • @ahockley A ha! We’ve finally cracked the nut – “what will make Aaron want an iPod Touch/iPhone”! :-) I’ll alert Cupertino. πŸ˜‰ #
  • @ahockley Just uninstall/disable the Apple Software Updater. Autoruns is your friend if it won’t go peaceably. πŸ˜‰ #
  • Dear LazyTwitter: What’s the best iPhone app/web page for tracking election results? Not polls, but real results. #
  • @ahockley Yes, the Apple Software Updater is a separate app. Kill it at will. #
  • @harrisja Not sure what you mean by further kill the battery. “How much you use it” to “how long the battery lasts” is pretty linear. πŸ˜‰ #
  • @ahockley The iPod Touch has wifi. I wouldn’t try to download huge podcast files over EDGE or HSDPA, unless desperate. #
  • @ahockley I doubt it will be a “runs in the background and automatically downloads the podcast” method. I don’t want it to auto download. #
  • @ahockley I want it to tell me “hey, there’s new episodes”, and let me choose to download. Like App update notifications. #
  • @harrisja I know “people” complain about iPhone battery life, but frankly, I get great life out of mine. It’s rarely below 60% at the EOD. #
  • @ahockley If you want “automatically download everything”, that’s what your big always-on iPod (aka your computer) is for. πŸ˜‰ #
  • @Jmartens Did you know that a Five Guys recently opened on Cedar Hills Blvd in Beaverton? I can’t wait to go. Loved it on the east coast. #
  • @Jmartens we were going to hit Five Guys on Saturday, but my boy has a peanut alergy, and they cook everything in peanut oil. I need to go! #
  • @billpearson a worthy endeavor. :-) Ive been meaning to snag Wii Music. looks like a great family game. #
  • @ahockley Yeah, his peanut allergy isn’t severe, but enough to give him a rash/hives. I hope he grows out of it. I’m plagued with allergies. #
  • @mar_iannitti I heart Guitar Hero. The full Guitar Hero World Tour set (drums, mic, guitar) + Rock Band 2 are on my list. They’re just fun! #
  • @donpdonp Local stuff like this power outage are where PulseofPDX.com would shine. If only Twitter would turn “with_friends” back on. :-( #
  • Flipping channels, saw John McCain doing the intro monologue for SNL’s election special, badly. Surreal. #
  • @Jmartens Yeah. You’d think he could read lines on a teleprompter without stumbling by now. :-) #
  • Wow. Palin ripping on SNL and NBC came off creepy. Threatening to revoke NBCs broadcast license? Yay for jokes about the 1st Amendment. :-( #
  • @mattg It was live tonight. I’m sure it will be on NBC.com tomorrow. The crowd was eerily quiet and uncomfortable. #
