Josh’s Lifelog for 2009-01-13

  • @rachelbancroft informs me we have a roof leak. In the exact same spot we paid to have one fixed last year. Guy’s coming to look tomorrow πŸ™ in reply to rachelbancroft #
  • @jezlyn Roofer said if it’s the same problem, it’s covered under warranty. I’m starting to hate the roof of our house… πŸ™ in reply to jezlyn #
  • And here I was all ready to be in a good mood today. Stupid roof. Stupid weather. *grumble grumble* #crankyoldman #
  • Hey, want to make a 15 second video to be shown at @IgnitePortland 5? Now you can! Show off what you can do – http://tinyurl.com/7wg5ko #
  • @croncast Woo hoo, you’re back! And back to your Croncast roots. I heartily approve. Keep ’em coming, but don’t burn yourselves out! πŸ™‚ in reply to croncast #
  • I have so much cool stuff I want to get done today, but it’s pretty much wall to wall meetings. Ugh. πŸ™ #
  • @atmasphere Hey, I’m all for doing work. But sitting through hours of consecutive meetings, without so much as a lunch break, is just brutal in reply to atmasphere #
  • Great meeting with @JoshProStar on Netvibes and “listening” panels, like netvibes.com/intel. Next up: convert him to FriendFeed. πŸ™‚ #
  • Those meetings today I’ve been complaining about? They’ve been with great people. @bobduffy, @francinegeller, @amybarton, and more. #
  • RT Ignite Portland 5 talk ideas are due Jan. 24. Be creative, hack the format, and get your burning idea to us! http://tinyurl.com/98anh5 #
  • I think I might have found a replacement quick launcher (like Quicksilver) for Mac: Google Quick Search Bar – http://tinyurl.com/8zljkz #
  • OK, wow. Google Quick Search Bar is going to be a BIG deal. The “type a URL, tab, then type search term” for site search is GREAT. So fast! #
  • I’ve held on to Quicksilver, even after it got abandoned by its creator, and I use it every day. Google QSB might have just superceded it. #
  • @LemenagerFilms I can’t guarantee it’s virus-free, but 1) it’s from Google, 2) it’s open source, and 3) it’s for Mac. I feel safe. πŸ™‚ in reply to LemenagerFilms #
  • @dacort Yeah, I see “conference room search”, “campus maps”, and “Googler search” in there, too. Some leftover internal bits. πŸ™‚ in reply to dacort #
  • @turkchgo Yeah, I never really tried Launchbar, but I kept meaning to. Now I don’t think I’ll get around to it. I’ve leapfrogged to QSB. πŸ™‚ in reply to turkchgo #
