  • So, my “supar sekrit project” has broken cover. Announcing Intel Software Network TV: http://bit.ly/isntv More info: http://bit.ly/ISNTVSMR #
  • I’ll be putting up a blog post later on what Intel Software Network TV is all about. It’s being very well received, which makes me so happy! #
  • An early review of Intel Software Network TV from @siliconANGLE (thanks, @furrier and @rizzn!) http://bit.ly/otaAz #
  • You can follow @isntv to get notification when something live is about to happen (a show, an event, etc.) on Intel Software Network TV. #
  • @StevenWalling @turoczy Thanks! It’s consumed my brain for the last month or two, and I’m “supar” excited to finally get it off the ground! #
  • Everyone needs to know that @jerry_makare, my partner in launching @isntv, deserves HUGE props. He is a camera-slinging rock star. πŸ™‚ #
  • And I also have to thank my boss, @billpearson, for not only allowing crazy harebrained ideas, but encouraging them, and helping them bloom. #
  • I forgot to thank @rachelbancroft for putting up with me being distracted, working early and late hours getting @isntv off the ground. πŸ™‚ #
  • Tom’s Hardware also has nice things to say about Intel Software Network TV: http://bit.ly/rlvUn #
  • Looking at the viewer stats for Intel Software Network TV, considering a small heart attack. A LOT of people are watching. Wow! πŸ™‚ #
  • @turoczy Silicon Florist looks and works fine on my Kindle: http://twitpic.com/6pfbe in reply to turoczy #
  • @turoczy No problem! Silicon Florist might actually be the first paid blog I stay subscribed to on my Kindle. πŸ™‚ in reply to turoczy #
  • @turoczy I’d do it, man. Just for you. πŸ™‚ in reply to turoczy #

  • RT @SarahCofer: Anyone have older cell Phones that have digicams and gps units that they can donate to a 4-H mapping project? #
  • @aaroneiche A surprising number of older “dumb” phones have cameras and some form of GPS. I have a couple floating around somewhere… in reply to aaroneiche #
  • How come I’m sitting here, instead of downloading Final Fantasy VII for PSP? Oh, that’s right. I’ve got a gig of video to upload first. πŸ™‚ #
  • @harrisja You say I’m wrong. I’m just making you work to try to prove your point. I’m not the only stubborn geek. πŸ˜‰ in reply to harrisja #
  • Love a rousing iPhone argument with @harrisja. We need a cage match -Two Phone Enter, One Phone Leave! πŸ˜‰ #

  • RT @IgnitePortland The talks for Ignite Portland 6 have been announced! What you’ll be seeing on stage at #IP6: http://bit.ly/ip6talks #
  • I love it when I spend an hour on the phone with support, and the answer is “submit a request on site XYZ”. Then a script fixes the issue. #
  • And by “love”, I mean “hate”. πŸ™‚ (re: my last tweet) #
  • RT @timoreilly: Love the subtitle of The Art of Concurrency:A Thread Monkey’s Guide to Writing Parallel Applications http://bit.ly/14NYDh #
  • Dear Parallels VM hard drive file. Thanks for getting corrupted. Did you know they turn the lights out at work after 7PM? Love, Josh. #
  • @turkchgo how to fix a corrupted Parallels HDD file? No, I don’t. How? in reply to turkchgo #
  • I don’t store any data in my VM. All my Outlook PSTs etc live out in Mac userspace, where Time Machine backs ’em up. My VM is “disposable”. #
  • I do occasional snapshots of my VM HDD file. Alas, newest one was 1+yo, so I had to install XP SP3, get it back on the domain, etc. #
  • So, it cost me a couple of hours, but my VM is back up and running, no data lost. And now I have a fresh VM HDD snapshot. All’s well! πŸ™‚ #
  • @turkchgo D’oh! That was my exact problem, and that fix would have saved me hours. I’m embarrassed. I should have turned to Twitter first. in reply to turkchgo #
  • @drewbernard Windows 7 is quite nice. I use XP solely as a life support system for Outlook, which is a necessity of life at work. in reply to drewbernard #
  • @brady An Ignite for MTV Brasil? Que legal (awesome)! πŸ™‚ Let me know if you need help. I lived in Brasil for 2 years, speak Portuguese… in reply to brady #
  • Did you know that Wikipedia now has a mobile site optimized for advanced mobile browsers like the iPhone? It’s slick: http://m.wikipedia.org #
  • @harrisja I don’t know what a taptu is, but that was the only message I saw. in reply to harrisja #
  • Wait, did Twitter mess up replies even more? I can’t keep up with this crap. #fixreplies #thisisridiculous #
  • For iPhone Wikipedia-ing I like Kiwi. I bought it because @gruber said it was good. That man has undue influence over my wallet. πŸ™‚ #
