  • @davest I’ve learned over the years that every minute of video I shoot takes 10 minutes or more to edit, upload, etc. Now I <3 short clips. in reply to davest #
  • @davest Besides, if I need “real” video capture, I’ll just bring @jerry_makare and his fancy cameras along. Or use my Flip. πŸ™‚ in reply to davest #
  • @lazyeyesteve I am also a big connoisseur of gadget bags, and if I ever have enough money to get a 5D Mk 2, I’ll pore over the perfect bag. in reply to lazyeyesteve #
  • Does Western Digital WD Drive Manager software for Mac actually *do* anything, besides show a capacity gauge on the drive icon? #
  • Everything is going so well! Here, let me jinx it by saying so. πŸ™‚ #
  • Had a 3 hr meeting to select the talks for @IgnitePortland 6. Hardest one so far. Lots of hot debate. Town Hall input was a big help. #
  • RT @IgnitePortland: Talk lineup for IP6 will be announced Monday June 1. The submissions we got were top notch. So hard to choose! #ip6 #
  • @kegill @IgnitePortland 6 is Thursday July 16. in reply to kegill #
  • @geoffk Thanks! It was great to be able to refer to what people said at the Town Hall. And #IP6 is going to rock! πŸ™‚ in reply to geoffk #

  • OH’ing a retelling of a painful dentist visit that I could do without. Words include “redo the root canal”, “ooze”, “pus”, “drain”, etc. :-& #
  • RT @Jerry_Makare: Panasonic HVX-200 with a Canon 5D Mark II attached to hot shoe mount via @galvmo http://twitpic.com/62ccc (love my job!) #
  • OH: “I would, except I’m supposed to do a video shoot in my underwear in four minutes.” πŸ™‚ #
  • Having more fun at work today that any teambuilding activity or offsite event I’ve ever been to. πŸ™‚ #
  • Not only was the cake not a lie, it was delicious! πŸ™‚ #
  • Anyone know what the screen res on the Zune HD is going to be? I find it hard to imagine it’ll actually be HD (at least 1280×720). #
  • Curse all the video professionals I’ve been rubbing elbows with. I’m totally, madly, and completely in love with the Canon 5D Mk II now. πŸ™‚ #
  • @davest HD clips on the 5DMkII are limited to 12 minutes, which is about 10-11 minutes longer than the vast majority of clips I shoot now. in reply to davest #
  • That nightly Chromium for Mac build wasn’t half bad. Chrome for Mac is looking very promising. #

  • Going to get back into using BrightKite a little more regularly. – http://bkite.com/07Pgv (from SW Eggert Way & SW Masters Loop, Aloha, …) #
  • Taking a much needed break today. Per tradition, headed to the Oregon Coast with the fam. Tillamook ice cream and cheese curds and Mo’s. πŸ™‚ #
  • Of course, we’re full of gratitude for the soldiers and veterans that keep us safe, and make our way of life possible. Thank you all. #
  • @ScottHuskey We toyed with the idea of building a chicken tractor, but in the end, our yard just isn’t big enough. in reply to ScottHuskey #
  • A much needed oil change for the WRX before we head to the coast. – Photo: http://bkite.com/07Psz (from Oil Can Henry’s) #
  • Stopped at @tillamookcheese for the best ice cream and cheese curd on earth. πŸ™‚ – Photo: http://bkite.com/07PJE (from Tillamook) #
  • At Tolovana Park/Cannon Beach for Family Beach Fun. Weather couldn’t be better. Nap time! πŸ™‚ – Photo: http://bkite.com/07PYH (from Tolo…) #
  • Grabbing food in Seaside. Passed by the (way unofficial, hand-painted-sign) “Crocs” store, and honestly, it looked kinda lame. #
  • Home. Sunburnt, windblown, sandy, and tired. πŸ™‚ – http://bkite.com/07Qre (from SW Eggert Way & SW Masters Loop, Aloha, OR 97007, United…) #
  • @camikaos You may choose to interpret it however you wish. But take into account the fact I was looking for a new pair at the time. πŸ˜‰ in reply to camikaos #
  • As if we hadn’t eaten enough crap today, we stopped at Sonic for tasty beverages. I’m trying an apple lime-aid. It’s… different. #
  • Hangin’ out with my groupie chicks… http://twitpic.com/5z1lr #
  • @Palumbo You can get a $5 adapter/cable from Monoprice or PCHCables that converts HDMI to DVI. Problem solved. in reply to Palumbo #
  • Heh. One of the chickens (same one, I bet) jumped up on MY shoulder tonight. πŸ™‚ Pecked at my head! http://twitpic.com/5z3qy #
  • I promise, once the novelty wears off, I’ll stop tweeting so dang much about chickens. I’m not going to be That Chicken Guy forever! πŸ˜‰ #

  • Is there a Facebook worm going around? I got two FB messages this AM, unrelated people, both saying “visit somedomain.be”. Weird. #
  • @CarriBugbee Alas, there is NO way to make a Mac browser, Safari or Firefox, go full screen. I have no idea why that should be, but it is. in reply to CarriBugbee #
  • This week’s date night: working on the $&#% chicken coop. I swear, this thing is the project that never ends! πŸ™‚ #
  • We were working on the coop, @rachelbancroft bent over and a chicken hopped right up on her shoulder! http://twitpic.com/5qvzj #
  • Another pic of the chicken that jumped and perched on @rachelbancroft’s shoulder. I shot video, too. πŸ™‚ http://twitpic.com/5qw5k #

  • At a virtual conference, listening to myself and @amybarton give a presentation we recorded weeks ago. Surreal to attend my own talk. πŸ™‚ #
  • Yay! @davest hooked me up with a bootable USB stick to install Moblin 2.0 beta on my Eee PC 1000H. Installing now! πŸ™‚ #
  • Test tweet from the integrated “Status” tab in Moblin 2.0. This is slick – Twitter integrated into the OS! πŸ™‚ #
  • @mattg ArsTechnica has a nice writeup of Moblin 2.0 (by @segphault) that might answer better than I can: http://bit.ly/nOTEZ in reply to mattg #
  • @mike_strock You can get it from http://moblin.org (which is getting hammered), or try http://mirrors.kernel.org/moblin in reply to mike_strock #
  • @dbug13 Install was pretty easy. Boot from the USB stick, choose “Install”, selection partition scheme, then let it finish. in reply to dbug13 #
  • @lmachen Try hitting ESC repeatedly during boot, right after power on. It should give you a menu where you choose which device to boot from. in reply to lmachen #
  • @lmachen That changes the boot order in the BIOS, but hitting ESC gives you a “right now,” one-time device boot menu. Try that? in reply to lmachen #
  • “Your reading list has no unread items.” Been a long time since Google Reader told me that. Feels good. πŸ™‚ #
