  • @adamostrow Betcha no golf course designer ever even /thought/ of getting away with 80/20 in what he billed for. #

  • Upton’s single? That’s what I do. Ok, no double … but no double play. And for sure RBIs. It’s in the hands. Pick the spot; bloop it there. #
  • @DonRiep HiYa. No, but I’ve been hanging at the <s>Strath</s> Second Cup there for years. @mastermaq headed there too! (I’m Whyte / 96th) #
  • @AshleyAngell Wow. String has to be tightlyl constrained. I mean, couldn’t just pull from freeform text. Could we? (Finite # of variations?) #
  • /me finds himself in gedanken: given large pool of free text, how many ways people use to express date? Gotta be finite. Bet it’s not large. #
  • @JessieX My thesis about our decline: until/unless there is existential chance of consequence sophistry (cheap to produce!) will win out. #
  • @xxdesmus Dewd … if you don’t remember, then likely it don’t matter. “Fortune favors the bold!” :-) #

  • @DavidLinthicum I have to wonder: how many folk back off when they read “Download File”. Cognitive ergonomics … it really should be “Play” #
  • @ev @biz Hey! Yaaa, you! I don’t want DM from folk I don’t follow! None! Zero! _Nada y f’n nada_. _Capice_? _?Claro?_ _!?Com.f’n.prende?!_ #

  • Sooo, kidz … let’s think: we get @ that aren’t to us, we get DM from folk we don’t follow. Like LinkedIn, Twitter wins $$$ by default. #
  • Breaking News: yuppies’ kidz hear rumour that computer programs are deterministic. Madness and suicide ensues. #
  • ReTw @laughingsquid: Ron Howard’s Call To Action with Andy Griffith & Henry Winkler http://tr.im/j1b [OMG. #Vista again refuses to play!] #
  • Just got email security notification from Microsoft CSS Security Team. Talk about job security!! (M$? #Vista really sucks. You suck too.) #
  • Ayup. Re-started FF2 and videos have audio. #Vista … MicroSloth, as I wrote in ’98, is guilty of psychological abuse. #ClassActionSuit #
  • @laughingsquid I guess I’ll go ahead an up-date to 2.6.x now. ;-) #
  • @socialcoop huh huh huh … pls don’t think my EMail reply was req for help! *giggle* Put it this way: it’s R-rated. This old dawg bites! #
  • @dahowlett Aww geesch … how’z it spelt? schaudenfruede? (Had to love her smoker’s cough; real life trumps theatre.) #
  • Unbelelievable. Go to M$ for security update. Oh, can’t be running FF. Launch IE. Oh, this new laptop needs to update IE. M$? You suck. #
  • Oh. I have been instructed to close all apps. Again. This time so IE can take control. (NB: the A-list ignore reality … they’re lamers.) #
  • DLd IE8, closed everything, re-booted. Now I get to *sigh* DL security upgrade on #Vista and do it all again. M$? You truly do suck. #
  • After DL/install IE8: “The website has encountered a problem and cannot display the page you are trying to view.” M$? This is criminal a … #
  • How stunned is M$ really? peek the pic: http://flickr.com/photos/bentrem/2968694362/ (Doesn’t this say how economic foundation is cracked?) #
  • EMail to M$ part two; finale: “No vulgarity can exceed the vulgarity of your continued existence.” #
  • HeyHo, wasted time beta-testing M$ security. Now DLing update via Control Panel. *malevolent cretins, they are* #
  • #Vista After 1/2hr updating/upgrading/DLing/un-installing M$ gack … an ugly experience. I feel abused. And dirty. And exposed. Vulnerable. #
  • On surfacing from M$-land: isn’t MicroSloth evidence that market forces are skewed? Isn’t it clear that A-list exist to distract/trivialize? #
  • @olliesaunders Think whale … start surfacing at 6:15 … 30 mins or so for half-dozen dreams … eyes open 6:57. :-) #

  • Eeeeeewwww! I love SlideShare.net but honest to g*d, someone there should give their head a shake. The “share” funciton is awful. #

  • @dotBen Darn … wanted to give you URL to “Mad World” but don’t want to tweet my account. (No Follow => no DM) #

  • #Vista Really, this is the height of dumb: Firefox just encountered some flavor of SWF and opened IE to handle it. M$, get outta my face! #
  • @lisarokusek People who use the word socialist as a stick I think would be using gay bashing or racism if they thot they’d get away with it. #
