Twitter Posts for the week of 2008-12-14

  • coffee, playing with Widows 7 (6956), and getting ready to start studying. #
  • wow… yeah, about the studying thing. *nervous laugh* motivation is almost completely gone. #
  • I’m easily amused: Window 7’s WordPad app can open MS Word 2007 documents (DOCX) …very very cool. no more installing Word to open 1 doc #
  • @JamesProud knew you would be man 😛 …kind of ironic. I’m cutting back right now on Twitter usage as well. in reply to JamesProud #
  • http://is.gd/aCDJ “Weekend Update:Plaxico Burress” on SNL…hilarious. #
  • It’s always fun playing around with the Wayback Machine: http://web.archive.org/ check out some of your favourite sites. #
  • turned in a final this morning. he made us drive in (20 minutes) to meet with him for literally 4 minutes. but hey, it’s done 🙂 #
  • half heartedly studying for my final tomorrow …just…no…more…motivation left. #
  • oh Bryan Adams…you were so emo before emo ever existed #
  • listening/singing along to Christmas music and doing some work for the job on I’m supposed to be on vacation from *sigh* #

  • this is one those classic Xmas songs every should recognize… ♫ http://blip.fm/~12hfk #
  • GMAIL has a TO DO LIST finally! It’s awkward as hell, but it’s better than nothing! #
  • Gmail’s task manager/to do list sucks right now. Hopefully they will improve it to be close to RTM’s Gmail sidebar. #
  • 1 presentation and 1 written final today…so close to being done. #
  • Presentation finished…written final coming up. So close to being done I can almost taste it. #
  • All I have left before I graduate: 1 ten minute presentation tomorrow afternoon! 🙂 #
  • forgot I needed to make a PPT for my presentation tomorrow…doh! #
  • having SERIOUS motivational issues with this PPT…ugh. #
  • http://is.gd/aUtl “Snowflakes as you’ve never seen them before” …simply incredible. #
  • looking at laptops … thinking about a Dell 15″ Studio, an ASUS F8, or a MacBook…decisions decisions… #
  • Taking any and all suggestions: looking to get a new laptop. around $1,100-$1,300. Anyone have any suggestions? #
  • @JamesProud MacBook is way under powered for the price though. I can get way faster for a few hundred cheaper. in reply to JamesProud #
  • @chrisriedinger I’m building a Latitude E6500 right now …great suggestion 🙂 in reply to chrisriedinger #
  • @giga I prefer power over how pretty it looks. 😛 in reply to giga #
  • @giga My plastic Dell Latitude D810 has lasted me 3 years without any problems. I’ll take power over pretty any day of the week. in reply to giga #
  • @giga well a 13″ is actually smaller than I’d like. I’m lookin 15.4″ …weight isn’t a huge deal honestly. 1lb diff isn’t a big deal. in reply to giga #
  • @chrisriedinger the only option for a discrete is a Quadro …that’s kind of too bad. 😦 in reply to chrisriedinger #
  • @chrisriedinger ouch…this is getting really expensive fast. starts with an 80GB HDD 5400RPM? geez… in reply to chrisriedinger #
  • @chrisriedinger don’t really game much any more. in reply to chrisriedinger #
  • @chrisriedinger wow, the E6500 is actually really sexy (while still being a bit industrial) in reply to chrisriedinger #
  • @chrisriedinger @giga the problem is I’m being picky. I want to get a WUXGA …I ❤ my 1920×1200 laptop now. so nice, not easy/cheap … in reply to chrisriedinger #
  • @chrisriedinger have you seen one of the Dell Studio’s in person? I’m curious if they are as nice in person as they look online. in reply to chrisriedinger #
  • @chrisriedinger yeah…such decisions 😛 I won’t lie: the MacBook is sexy, but I hate the glass screen, and it’s horribly over priced. in reply to chrisriedinger #
  • @chrisriedinger none of the XPS’s have the C2D with the 1066Mhz FSB. weird. the Studio’s do though. in reply to chrisriedinger #
  • @chrisriedinger http://is.gd/aVkU what do you think about this ASUS? the 5,400 RPM HDD is the only problem I see really. in reply to chrisriedinger #
  • @chrisriedinger good to know! I didn’t think there was a huge speed difference. in reply to chrisriedinger #
  • wet slushy snow this morning… coffee and avoiding going outside as long as possible. #
  • if monkey’s snowed it would be snowing like one right now. 😛 #
  • @chrisriedinger @giga I think I’m pretty much set on a Dell XPS 1530 🙂 …hopefully buying it tonight/tomorrow in reply to chrisriedinger #
  • @chrisriedinger will take a look. This is my 1st actual laptop purchase (long story), so I’m kinda being picky about the specific parts 🙂 in reply to chrisriedinger #
  • Retweeting @wmacphail: Xmas Fact: Rudolph’s nose is only red when he has an unheard message. #
