@purecaffeine Telling the client to dump the project is awesome. Relates to my old post, “Scaring the shit out of clients”: http://is.gd/aeF

@andrewbarnett “Why it’s OK to lose massive productivity for the sake of $100 extra RAM?” You had the answer before: sheer idiocy.

@bck Indeed, I’ll be just down the road a few doors at 1530. Maybe a quick coffee is in order. Stay tuned.

@spinopsys Cycle-shop customers would seem to be, as I’d expect, slightly ahead of the pack in accepting Peak Oil.

@cheyes Interesting that you never even check phone messages. I check them, but reply whenever, comparing priority with other things.

@breko Welcome to my Twitterworld. Hope the cockroach thing works out.

@spinopsys Are we really at the “bargaining” stage of accepting Peak Oil? I thought it was still at stage 1, “denial”. http://is.gd/abT

@The_Rooster HI and welcome to my Twitterworld. I think I know how I blipped up… ;) The word “podcast” by any chance?

Emerging, and some widget on my computer says “Fine, cold early.” Correct. I’ll feel more fine after suitable alkaloids.

@ApostrophePong will kill me if I don’t make dinner NOW. Meanwhile, evolving thoughts about my podcast. Comments please! http://is.gd/9X9

@purecaffeine “Professional Networking Cards” sounds… awkward. Why not just say, “my card”? Does it need any more qualifiers than that?

via Twitter Web Client

@purecaffeine Non-business cards were “calling cards” in Victorian Era. If you visited when householder was out, you’d leave a card.

@kcarruthers “Trust comes from relationship & authenticity - so some bloggers will build that kind of relationship with people” Hear hear!

@mpesce I did Computing Science. If you did that too you could become like me, wouldn’t THAT be good? ;)

@acatinatree Acupuncture *increases* breast size? I thought the needles would, y’know, burst them boobies. Not that I’m an expert.

@mpesce That’s precisely what @leslien and I were talking about: Apache on Nokia. Seems a great way to lose what little bandwidth you have.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to mpesce

@leslien says “You could host your blog in your pants. that’s got to be pretty compelling.” Agreed!

via Twitter Web Client

@leslien Do I WANT to turn my phone into a web server? ;) Still, for Nokia/Apache fans I’ll retweet link: http://tinyurl.com/6rsbv9

Straw poll: Is surveying people on “How many times do you log on a week?” a relevant measure any more? Or on “pages viewed”?

via Twitter Web Client

@Nickhodge I saw @mpesce run Apache on his Nokia N95 some weeks back, he said he was going to try the rest of the LAMP stack.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to NickHodgeMSFT

@Nickhodge I also think today’s First Dog on the Moon cartoon is truly inspired. Shame it’s still behind the paywall. ;)

ACMA Comms Report 2006-07 released yesterday. http://is.gd/9TF Apparently social media use up, TV down. Surprised? Lotsa (now-old) numbers.

Client leaves with spam filters turned on and operational, joy level increased. Such simple pleasures… I think that calls for tea.
