  • home after a slightly interesting dinner… #
  • really not in the mood to watch Lost tonight. might watch it, might not…we’ll see. #
  • exhausted…time to pass out. #
  • cold, snowy, and expecting snow today …great day to stay in, make some coffee, and try to be productive. #
  • http://is.gd/2vF 500GB Western Digital USB 2.0 external hard drive – $100. Great deal! #
  • @Matthom It’s the TechMeme of micro-blogging/status update sites. I don’t really see the big deal as well. *shrugs* #
  • http://is.gd/2vZ "From 9/11 to Fall of Baghdad, an Ex-Marine Explains What It Means to Him" Great article in the NYT about a family friend. #
  • it’s seriously only 11am? …geez…this day is dragging on like whoa #
  • early lunch, and then gyming it up I think. #
  • @Matthom I always felt like TechMeme was a rip off. Making ad revenue from other people’s content. Seems fishy to me. #
  • @Matthom a la social feed aggregator aggregators? Yeah. It’s ridiculous. Tumblr and Jaiku are already aggregators for the other services. #
  • @Matthom "Feeds are not meant to be used as content." Don’t know if I agree with that entirely. Feeds CAN be content in good/useful ways #
  • @Matthom I totally agree with you then. I don’t like that idea either. #
  • buying music from Amazon JUST to spite the iTunes store. #
  • @billpalmer How so? It’s cheaper, less DRM crap, and actually easier in some ways. Not to mention I don’t have to support an evil company. #
  • @billpalmer certainly is no more difficult. Click "buy", things download quickly, auto-imported into iTunes. Gee, that was tough. #
  • @billpalmer My dislike of Apple trumps the iTunes store. I’m not really going to change my opinion on this one πŸ˜› #
  • great album… Slow Poke – At Home (2007). Such smooth/chill jazz. Very happy with the purchase. "Harvest" is an instant favorite song. wow #
  • @billpalmer Didn’t see much of a point in arguing. Both suck – you’re right (companies and stores). #
  • playing around with Windows Small Business Server 2003 …because I am just that much of a nerd. #
  • anyone know a way to backup txt messages on Win Mobile 5? #
  • http://www.soashable.com/ just like Meebo…except installable on your own server. very cool stuff. #
  • Well that was nice …Dell re-shipped my replacement gift card over night, and it was marked as "extremely urgent contents". #
  • just bought a Canon PowerShot SD850 IS Digital ELPH …really excited to have a digital camera again. #
  • I heart the simplicity of using apt-get from the command line. I wish all computer related things would just be that easy. #
  • still not 100% …hoping I’ll get unsick, but instead I’m reading and taking it easy this evening. #

  • she always makes things at least a little bit better… #
  • awake (well sort of), grabbing coffee and starting some homework… #
  • getting a few things done before heading into work. Not looking forward to work though. The database of death freaked out again yesterday. #
  • at work, but not technically working yet …they already get far too much free work time out of me anyways. #
  • trying to figure out which of the "critical" things comes first on my to-do list…hmm. #
  • oh wonderful, that work we just found out…oh yeah, it’s due in 7 days. Thanks for the prior notice. grrrr #
  • I can post to Twitter from Digsby now! *geek snort* #
  • database load, and then I am essentially done for the day… #
  • kinda bored at work now…definitely ready to go home. #
  • @Rafe have any invites for SlideRocket by chance? I’d love to try it out. Thanks. #
  • weather is not cooperating. it just went from sunny to really dark, windy, and snowing…just in time for me to leave. Thanks! #

  • f**k. what a night this is turning into. #
  • I am now Twittering using Ping.fm! #
  • test post from Ping.fm #
  • Rockets just got absolutely rocked by the Celtics. At least 2 good things happened tonight. #
  • my cough definitely seems to be worse today. *sigh* …so ready to be healthy again. #
  • http://is.gd/2nz Sprint phones to work on Verizon’s "open" network next year…great news! #
  • restarting my battle with Dell. #
  • cup of corporate evil in hand, time to do battle with the evil empire…. #
  • Dell’s actually going to reissue my gift card. wow. woot! #
  • finally thinking about lunch, and then a busy/productive afternoon is a must. #
  • http://is.gd/2k6 "10 Things You Need to Know About WordPress 2.5" …worth the read if you use WP. #
  • http://is.gd/2p7 Anyone want an invite for Eluma? I have 49 to give away… #
  • Trying to move over to Firefox 3 full time. So far so good. I just need a new theme because the Vista default is terrible! #
  • @leahjones lol πŸ˜› That…would have been an entirely different story! #
  • @Matthom I totally agree. I constantly fight with it. They really need to revamp the entire web UI. It’s terrible right now. #
  • @Matthom Yep. I love me some CSS magic. I need to install that site-specific CSS Firefox extension…good idea. #
  • @Matthom http://userscripts.org/scripts/show/7825 …it at least disables the animation…slight improvement, but it still sucks. #
  • totally just set up a VPN with my girl…the things that make geek’s hearts pitter patter πŸ˜› #

  • avoiding the work I should actually be doing…thinking about going to bed in the very near future. #
  • coffee and getting things situated for this week…all kinds of things I need to get done. #
  • trying to clean out my mailbox…first step towards de-stressing at work. #
  • all kinds of emails to catch up on before I even begin my "real" work. #
  • 2 big meetings for the day are over (relatively painlessly) …time for some catch up work. #
  • very grey overcast day here, but at least it’s not snowing (yet), right? #
  • remember the weekend…makes the work day seem so much better πŸ™‚ #
  • https://www.foldershare.com …so easy to use, it’s wonderful. Remote access to all your files. #
  • getting ready to head home. it’s raining, I am hungry, and really looking forward to talking to the girl this evening #
  • oy…the evening just got way more sucky. #
  • @steverubel the Yanks need A-Rod not to choke in October, and that definitely is not going to happen. #

  • Stuff came up, staying an extra day/night in NYC. #
  • On the train, headed back to Poughkeepsie. …drunk kids on the train, how charming. #
  • A quote from this weekend, "please let me love you"… #
  • I definitely have a new appreciation for guy’s razors….girl’s razors just don’t do it for a guy’s face. (don’t ask why I kbow this) #
  • On the thruway for another 3 hours…replaying this weekend in my mind. Wow, really need to be careful I stay on the road… πŸ™‚ #

  • nice to finally sleep for for almost 9 hours last nigt…haven’t done that it weeks. #
  • On the NYS thruway headed to Poughkeepsie. Then taking the train into NYC to see my girl for the weekend. πŸ™‚ #

  • On the train in Poughkeepsie, just about to leave. #
  • Train ride feels like it’s taking FOREVER. Ugh. #
  • Arrived…longest. train ride. Ever…. #

  • thinking about a early bedtime this evening…my body is certainly exhausted. #
  • please shoot me … Flo Rida – "Low" is stuck in my head…and it totally reminds me of ATL. #
  • I’m trying really hard to ignore this sore throat that has been developing… #
  • @sharepointbuzz I was accepted in about 1 week. You’ll get in, don’t worry! #
  • sore throat is getting slightly better, but it definitely still is not very happy with me. #
  • so excited and happy today ….definitely feel like a little kid on Christmas Eve…heading to NYC tomorrow morning πŸ™‚ #
  • I’m all about the tea today…it seems to be helping my throat so far. #
  • presentation done. wishing this conference call would start already…body is kinda exhausted. #
  • Wasting 20 minutes getting remote desktop to work…what a joke. #

  • wow, TwitterFox is really nice (if you use Firefox)…quite handy on the go. #
  • home…long day. dinner, homework, maybe watch Lost, and CRASH. #

  • I must say, Microsft Online Services is wonderful. So simple to setup, so simple to use. I am very impressed so far. #

  • http://tinyurl.com/2hubj8 MSI Wind …definitely kinda want one of these. Another ultra portable laptop. #
  • http://tinyurl.com/2kp7ej "68% of Americans suffer disconnection anxiety" …are you one of them? I am to some extent. #

  • thinking it’s bedtime. which clearly means a 2-3 hour phone conversation before I go to bed. #
  • Had one of those weird "have I been awake or asleep this entire time?" moments this morning…so weird. #
  • definitely a little exhausted this morning. All of that lack of sleep seems to finally be catching up to me. #
  • Super boring day of classes so far. Though, I did just realize this morning that Easter break is already next week. Score! #
  • eating cold left over pizza before I head to the gym…don’t really feel like dying from lack of energy #
  • trying out the brand new Microsoft Online services … hosted Sharepoint, hosted Exchange, and hosted Live Meeting…pretty impressive. #
  • thinking about dinner in a bit …the gym tends to destroy my appetite though. #
