  • Nice to be back to work after last week. I’m just going to pretend it never happened. La la la la! πŸ™‚ #
  • Argh. I broke Outlook trying to fix a .NET Framework patch that wouldn’t install, and that IT was threatening to disconnect me for. *sigh* #
  • @bobduffy I dunno what Twitter100 is, but the full list of Intel people I know of on Twitter is at http://twitter.com/pulseofintel/friends #
  • @jmoriarty Just you wait until I launch @hooligansofintel… πŸ˜‰ in reply to jmoriarty #
  • @kellyrfeller What it means is that Twitter 100 only shows 100 people, and @pulseofintel is following about 135. T100 list is not complete. in reply to kellyrfeller #
  • @TiEsQue I do LIFO on my email backlog (had a huge one today). Otherwise, I reply to stuff without reading the whole thread, and look dumb. in reply to TiEsQue #
  • Skype for iPhone is out. It’s free. I’m playing with it. It’s too bad that I prefer text to voice conversations, but hey. #
  • @funguyom I’ve never really used Fring, mostly because I hate voice calls in general, and there’s no real background IM on iPhone yet. in reply to funguyom #

  • Major clearance going on at the Lego store in Washington square. 50% off some BIG sets. Going fast. Great deals. #
  • I asked the Lego store how often they do a clearance like this, and they said maybe twice a year. And they never advertise it. #
  • A guy in a suit snarfed up 7 or 8 of the big Lego sets, mostly Star Wars vehicles. At 50% off, I can’t blame him. #
  • I was tempted. Vader’s Advanced Tie (big) was only $25. If I hadn’t just bought a couple Lego sets for me and the kids, I would have caved. #
  • Really windy in Aloha. Big trees swaying. Lights flickered a few times. #pdxtst #
  • We owe a huge thanks to everyone who’s brought us meals, and otherwise helped us out this week. #
  • @motherpopper and @hangry: Thank you so much for the cupcakes. They were yummy! A perfect treat. πŸ™‚ in reply to motherpopper #

  • Won’t be tweeting much for a couple of days. @rachelbancroft is in the hospital. She’s doing OK, hope to be home soon. Not a fun weekend… #
  • Thanks for the kind words. We’re being well taken care of, and she’s doing much better. Thank you for thinking of and caring about us! πŸ™‚ #
  • I’m glad St. Vincent’s hospital provides free wifi, but the login/capture page is janky (esp. on iPhone), and FTP, SSH, and VPN are blocked. #
  • @PDXsays See my tweets from this morning. @rachelbancroft is in the hospital here. She’s doing OK, we hope to go home in another day or so. in reply to PDXsays #
  • In other news, I have a really hard time typing the word hospital. I don’t type it very often. My fingers keep wanting to type hopstial… #

  • Excellent – Logitech is going to make a Bluetooth adapter for its Harmony remotes, so they can control a PS3. Yay! http://tinyurl.com/cv3lzh #
  • As busy as I’ve been today, you’d think I’d have accomplished more. But any day that starts with a trip to Home Depot for new tools is good. #
  • I admit it. I love Papa Murphy’s pizza. The chicken garlic and Cowboy are staples in our household. #

  • I am absolutely NO good at *teasing* info about something I’m really excited about. I just want to blurt it all out! πŸ™‚ #
  • @jojohnson I can’t say right now, but as soon as it’s ready, you won’t be able to get me to shut up about it. All in due time… πŸ™‚ in reply to jojohnson #
  • Wow. Corn bread catfish nuggets in the JF5 cafe today. I’ll pass, though. http://twitpic.com/294uq #
  • Does it bother you to hear people say “iTouch” instead of “iPod touch”? It drives me crazy. Not because of loyalty,, but because it’s wrong. #
  • I think it’s a character flaw I have. I get annoyed when people say things are just not correct. Not “elevated stress level”, but annoyed. #

  • @kellyrfeller Welcome to the world of iPhone! One of us! πŸ™‚ For complete Twittering bliss, you simply MUST get and use the app Tweetie. #
  • My friend Kevin (@sourcecode) at work got one of the new iPod Shuffles. It’s REALLY tiny. Wow. Pics with my USB drive: http://bit.ly/4M26o #
  • Also, I tested the new Shuffle’s inline headphone controls with my iPhone 3G. As expected, the click works, but up/down doesn’t. #
  • @googlevoice just read (text to speech) the name of an incoming caller to me. I don’t think GrandCentral ever did that. Neat. #
  • @mike_strock You still haven’t been upgraded to Google Voice? Wow. I thought everyone would have been done by now. in reply to mike_strock #
  • @mike_strock It’s just luck, trust me. There’s nothing special about me. πŸ™‚ in reply to mike_strock #
