  • @pureCaffeine Have you spent any time snooping google books? I was very pleasantly surprised. ‘course that assumes ok with screen-reading. #
  • @Ross FWIW it seems that @’s only work when they’re on the beak of the tweet. (Regression?) #
  • PeopleAggregator > http://snipurl.com/1wuie < I like it. It’s nifty. And anytime I spend time there it becomes hair-pulling time. Sad. #
  • @lachlanhardy FWIW AOL grandfathered all the @netscape.net accounts w/IMAP … going on 10 years without a glitch. #
  • @meyerweb Regretable that his name is thus … "the gore index" has such unfortunate resonance. #

  • "Pickle" is one serialization module. Right. "Marshal" is another, different, serialization module. Check. *scratches python off the list* #
  • @newmediajim One time I took a flip from CFS Gander to Calgary. Heard a crew member talk about "self-packing luggage". Yaa, he meant me. #

  • Finally figured out A-list a**hole behaviour!! The benighted few, so accustomed to Daily Me and mutual admiration, they can’nae think! #
