Twitterpated for 2009-03-22

  • Happy St. Paddy’s day! No green beer at Back Streets this year.. Ah, the college days. Starting at 9am, and trying to last the whole day! #
  • The iPhone 3.0 updates really have me on the edge now. If there was a real keyboard, I’d sell a kidney (tough times, I know…) #
  • A new Dora? Man, I’m in trouble.. http://bit.ly/8Py1I #
  • Just tax the hell out of the AIG bonuses, and we get it back. #
  • Guess I was real lucky to have my Grand Central switch to Voice, hours after the announcement. Most people I know are still waiting.. #
  • Gotta love that I can work with ‘vi’ on a 4GB SQL text file. On this 8GB machine with 6GB dedicated to MySQL, nothing in Swap! #
  • Philip Greenspun is on to something here. Fire the whole AIG management team, and replace them: http://bit.ly/s7kpu #
  • Nice article on how Ben Franklin would have been a great Unix SysAdmin ๐Ÿ™‚ http://bit.ly/khtLQ #
  • So, Sen. Dodd received the most ($281k) from AIG, and he wrote the language that allowed the bonuses?? He edged out “W”.. WTF?! #
  • It’s really past time that we allow big business to pay off politicians in this country. *WE* have the power to change that! #
  • Osi Umenyiora doing good for Africa: http://bit.ly/hekFC #
  • I’ve tried *ALL* the GTD apps for the Mac, and “The Hit List” is the clear winner. Best interface, and very intuitive: http://bit.ly/vnqay #
  • *BIG* db migration for me tomorrow at “O-dark-thirty”, so I’m cutting out shortly. Going to 8GB InnoDB tablespace with 8GB RAM ๐Ÿ™‚ WHO-HA! #
  • For those of you without a young daughter, Twitterpated (from the movie “Bambi) http://bit.ly/Zmdp — It’s spring, are you Twitterpated? #
  • And a nice thank you to Google for recognizing the 40th anniversary of Eric Carle’s “Hungry Caterpillar” #
  • Any db admins thinking about upgrading from MySQL 4.x to 5.x, check your LEFT JOIN code… http://bit.ly/u6kO – that will save some hair ๐Ÿ™‚ #
  • I Love having kids. It gives me an excuse for acting like one ๐Ÿ™‚ Planning a Turtle / Bunny race for the summer with the neighbors ๐Ÿ™‚ #
  • Headed to http://bit.ly/T0n15 this afternoon. We get in FREE, since we are http://mos.org members ๐Ÿ™‚ #
  • Class warfare has officially begun. AIG was just a catalyst to something that has been brewing for years. When someones boss makes 400X… #
  • …What their workers make, and then the boss tanks the company and takes a bonus? I’m surprised more people with pitchforks aren’t around. #
  • The middle class is what drives this country, and we are fed up with taking one for the team, while the fat cats sleep comfortably. #
  • Strength in numbers. The middle class has the power to change all this. #
  • Make no mistake, the pigs will cry “Socialism”. We just want the best for our family, and some fairness. Call it what you want. #
  • I forgot how much “Meet the Press” makes my blood boil! Much better now, getting that out ๐Ÿ™‚ #
