Twitterpated for 2009-09-13

  • It's pretty much a given; that any long weekend, or holiday, there will be some kind of malware let lose, so SysAdmins have to work 🙁 #
  • I wonder if anybody warns Garrison Keillor's guests about the howly noise he makes when people sing. (via @hotdogsladies) #
  • I wonder if Facebook is aware their SSL cert for register.new.facebook.com expired on 28Aug09. Not as bad as forgetting the registrar bill. #
  • Booting with the 64-bit kernel (hold 6&4 at boot) and using Aperture is pure joy. It's like I have twice the hardware! Thank you, Apple!! #
  • Wow, I think our whole neighborhood is hungover today – very little movement.. Lot's of parties last night – fireworks and all. #
  • I should let my 1/4 stick of dynamite off, and wake them up! Naaa… I wouldn't do that 🙂 #
  • Did Pack Monadnock this morning with the kids, and getting ready to head out on the pontoon boat… #
  • Another gorgeous, crisp day here in the East. By far, my favorite time of the year. Not a big fan of summer humidity. Love this fall WX. #
  • For the non-military types, WX is short for "Weather" 🙂 #
  • My 6 year old PowerBook G4 is still worth $450 – according to http://bit.ly/2CgfhB I wonder how much a 6 yr old HP laptop is worth? #
  • Beatles coming to iTunes apparently. Some 'Sky News' spilled the beans. Compelling details http://bit.ly/eubrM (via @smokingapples) #
  • Yoko is *still* ruining things for the Beatles. So, so sad. #
  • Twitscoop.com should really filter out 'TinURL' as a "Buzzing Right Now" trend. #
  • iFixit.com has a *very good* AJAXey search. I need a DC in board for an old iBook G4, and found it very fast. Great job @ifixit #
  • Oh yea, @iFixit also seems to have the best prices, and have always had the best take apart guides for the Mac do-it-yourselfer #
  • Evernote for Mac users check for updates. Latest release (v 1.4.9) addresses the Snow Leopard issues. (via @evernote) #

    I use it almost every day. #
  • New iPod Nano: Camera (Mic/Speaker), Pedometer, FM radio (NPR, Finally!!) 8GB for $149, and 16GB for $179 – available TODAY! #
  • So, you get a pocket camcorder, iPod, work-out device, and a decent still camera for less than $180? BIG seller this xmas is my guess… #
  • Great to see Mr. Jobs back at an Apple event. Also, glad to see Apple can survive without him. OK, now go buy that Apple stock!! #

  • RT @dataoutages Dataoutages News » Blog Archive » bis.na.blackberry.com Down on 9-9-2009 http://bit.ly/owBqT #
  • Blackberry has been down for almost an entire hour now. I get no response from their Web site or SMTP servers. #
  • So nice to have a President who can speak again. Very centrist, bipartisan as well as demanding. We can't afford not to do this. #
  • From now on when a Republican says "Americans", replace it with "My rich friends". (via @GPappalardo) #
  • Are Republicans born without the muscles in their face to make a smile? #
  • Joe Wilson: great example of how low the Republican party has sunk. I am SOO sick of these jerks. (via @pcunix) #
  • I really think that "The Weekly World News" just changed their name to "The New York Post" Just read any "article" and you'll know why. #
  • Does anyone know anyone who actually purchased a Microsoft Zune? If so, why? #
  • The Blackberry outages seem to have hit the UK. Anyone else still down? Our users are having withdrawal. Although most report it's OK now #
  • I don't think I have any sympathy for people who don't backup their data. What really burns me, is that they think I am a miracle worker. #
  • New iTunes has partially filled in circles, for podcasts you have not yet finished… Nice.. #
  • So, Republicans cannot READ either! http://bit.ly/mFELj Section 246: NO FEDERAL PAYMENT FOR UNDOC. ALIENS. Damn, they are just pain dumb! #
  • OK, I'm going to need some calming down now. The misinformation that these idiots spread is really, really making me nuts. #
  • I have no patience for elected officials, who don't even read the flippin Bill, then spew out lies. Who votes for these guys? Uber-rich? #
  • Installed Snow Leopard on a production machine in our Art Department. It's passed all my tests, so time to see if it floats. #
  • 10.6.1 is out, with what looks like a new Flash Player.. I don't see much else.. #
