Josh’s Lifelog for 2008-12-09

  • @chrisorourke They just released uTorrent for OS X, but it lacks feed capability. Transmission seems to be the favorite OS X torrent app. in reply to chrisorourke #
  • @glecko Done and done. Welcome to Twitter! πŸ™‚ in reply to glecko #
  • Google apps are having problems for me this morning. Mail, Reader, Calendar, all timing out and acting weird. Anyone else? #
  • @geoffk I’m seeing the Google problems from Intel’s network. Sometimes it’s our proxies, but this seems more widespread. in reply to geoffk #
  • My crystal ball predicts blog posts in the usual places about Google’s problems/outages by EOD. If that’s you, get writing! πŸ™‚ #
  • Wow. I just had a search result google.com URL fail. Timeout. What’s going on down there? #
  • RT @jmoriarty: Intel has published externally our Social Media guidelines for employees. Feel free to comment and/or use. http://is.gd/aHQb #
  • It took a long time and a lot of work to get Intel’s social media guidelines published externally. Hats off to all those who made it happen. #
  • Just snagged Firefox 3.1 Beta 2 (thanks @jkendrick). Adds “Private Browsing”, and Tracemonkey (FAST javascript) is on by default. Nice. #
  • @Jmartens Thanks for the kind words about Intel’s SM guidelines. We’ve been doing it forever, but nice to have have something to share. πŸ™‚ in reply to Jmartens #
  • My Google issues seem to have smoothed out for now. Mail, Reader, and Calendar working normally. Also, Firefox 3.1 beta 2 is FAST. Go get! #
  • Just trained @ashokraj to post on the Intel Software Network blog. Been reading his stuff for a while, looking forward to what he writes! πŸ™‚ #
  • Also showed @ashokraj TweetDeck, and Tweetie on the iPhone. He’s a geek after my own heart! πŸ™‚ #
  • @drthomasho Tweetie is fast, saves searches, fast, lets me RT/reply/DM easily, fast, multiple account support, fast, pretty, and, uh, fast. in reply to drthomasho #
  • @LeStew Get Audacity. Open the AIFF, then save as whatever else you want. WAV, MP3 (needs free liblame library, instructions on site). in reply to LeStew #
  • @LeStew Audacity invasive? It keeps to itself, I promise! You could also try VLC. Or GarageBand. in reply to LeStew #
  • Hey, I just broke 3000 followers. That’s just CRAZY! πŸ™‚ Lucky number 3000 was @brandone. Why the heck do 3000 of you listen to me? #
  • OK, early consensus is that you don’t care what I say, you just follow because of the orange Crocs. Good to know. Oh, and πŸ˜› @camikaos πŸ™‚ #
  • Oh, crap. That annoying tweeting about how many followers I have made someone unfollow me. Sorry! I won’t talk about it any more! πŸ™‚ #
  • @StephStricklen Yay! Congratuations! Can’t wait to see if you “live tweet” the birth. πŸ˜‰ in reply to StephStricklen #
  • I can’t make the Ignite Portland 5 Volunteer Kickoff at 6 @cubespace, but if you want to help with IP5, go! http://tinyurl.com/5vrwow #
  • Tuned into @stephstricklen on @TheSquare for the first time (believe it or not) just in time for an @ahockley shoutout and her baby news πŸ™‚ #
  • @stephstricklen @aweiss and @thesquare have done what I would have said was impossible: made me a big fan of a local TV news show. Good job! in reply to StephStricklen #
  • The way the KGW tweeple have become part of the PDX Twitter community, and made our community part of their show, is masterful. Huge kudos! #
  • Ah, yes. It is about time to break out #pdxtst (PDX Twitter! Storm! Team!). Will be extra fun if the TV news folks (KGW tweeps) join in! πŸ™‚ #
  • @wheresitworking Yes, we need a tweeting weatherman. Though Mark Nielsen’s weather blog for FOX12 is awesome. I’m a long time fan. in reply to wheresitworking #
  • If you want to track #pdxtst, don’t forget to subscribe to a search feed at search.twitter.com. Compare with mainstream media coverage! πŸ™‚ #
