@bradlinder Why do you prefer Disqus over WordPress’s built-in commenting?
Had fun over lunch hour recording some bass tracks for @GlenTrainor. Hope there’s something useful in all that noodling!

@pvponline People don’t actually get angry at you for late strips, do they?
OH: “I’m actually considering never working out again, ordering pizza every night, and just being fat. I think I’m tired.”
Feeling green? Check out my wife’s article that shows you how to make an urban compost out of a storage container: http://bit.ly/bMZoDG
OH: “She’s not updating her Google Calendar which causes me great anxiety.” (okay, that was me)
RT @leemathews: Facebook off the hook now? No way. If they were a husband, they’d still be sleeping on the couch.
Facebook’s Mark Zuckerberg Talks About New Privacy Controls (Live Blog on RWW) - Q (Liz Gaines from GigaOm):… http://tumblr.com/x0aai3…
Isn’t it enough to know that Zuckerberg ruined a pony making a gift for you? (Maybe he used too many monkeys)
Zuckerberg: “We have seen no meaningful uptick in the number of people who deleted their accounts.” Oh really? Then why http://bit.ly/dfaTeg
I’m glad Facebook went so far overboard with recent changes, because it’s forcing them to fix it. Gradual changes may have been accepted.
I’m not in a “being awake” mood today.
@taddeis Oops; hey, it was late… what can I say?
@taddeis The irony, of course, is that most pets are annoying, and - some might say - shitty.
Woke up with a headache, hasn’t gone away.
Twitter is where we complain about random things, right? Oh, that’s Facebook? Oops, sorry.
The Swinger is a piece of code that swings any song. It’s AMAZING: http://musicmachinery.co…
Tuesday after a long weekend = twice as much Monday.
Had a blast this long weekend. Back to the salt mines tomorrow bright and early.
Fine, “early” might be a relative term.
I wish more of the nerds watching Big Bang Theory watched Chuck; season finale was fantastic, can’t wait for next season (if there is one).
#Lost spoiler: There are actually people in the world that don’t watch Lost!
RT @hotdogsladies: “Wha da WHA?!?” Yep. Got my toddler quoting Liz Lemon. Swish.

@GlenTrainor Boogie-woogie bass lines. That’ll work, right?
People on the internet really _can_ be nice and help each other: http://bit.ly/cOyP8h
Just realized what that sounded like. I *am* wearing pants, don’t worry.
Full-on working-from-home attire today. Sweatshirt, Crocs, couldn’t find my track pants though.
Google’s trying to get into the <sarcasm> incredibly profitable </sarcasm> WebTV / Windows Media Center / Apple TV market? Weird.
If you’re selling something, don’t use my discomfort against me; you *won’t* make your sale, and I *will* warn my friends.

Too bad Twitter lists are still 2nd class citizens in Tweetie 3, oops, I mean Twitter 3 for iPhone.
Oh look, Tweetie’s icon got ugly.
@geehoneybee Nat Bailey Pale Ale - nice!
@JimmySlims DUUUUDE, you’re speaking my language!
Mashable’s In Defense of Facebook misses the point: http://blog.jasonclarke….
What do Lady Gaga, Elton John, Sting, & Springsteen have in common? Ummm, “Don’t Stop Believin’”. And it’s so bad: http://bit.ly/cOBkqt
@hnefatafl Sorry, it was Dave. But I’m a fan of both.
@JimmySlims Thanks; it’s a tough call, for sure.
Boze-dee boze-dee bop
Amen! RT @rands When not using your services feels like my best move, you might want to review your privacy strategy.
I kind of wish I was on Facebook, only so that I could share my reasons for quitting Facebook with my Facebook friends: http://bit.ly/9C6A4D
Farewell to Facebook, at least for now - Why I quit Facebook, and TONS of links to more information. http://tumblr.com/x0a9un…
@GlenTrainor I can’t even get that far.
From a comment on http://mattmckeon.com/fa… “With Facebook, you’re not their customer, you’re their product.”
Just walked into my office reading a document (not paying attention) to find @glentrainor sitting in my chair. Scared the crap out of me.
Funny, Facebook exec Elliot Schrage suggests users view his Facebook page in the NYT article (http://nyti.ms/chhu2u), but the link’s broken.

daveshumka If your team loses, it is morally reprehensible to cheer for another team, and you are human garbage who should move back to Montreal, anus.
I’m having trouble even typing this, but … Go Habs?
Hey CBC, don’t you think those shots of despondent #Canucks fans sitting in the stands are a bit much? We get it already.
Mike Gillis: This off-season please lose Luongo, Demitra, Bernier. That alone would free up $12m or so. #Canucks
For sale: Overpaid “superstar” goalie. Lacks focus, stomach for the playoffs. Will pay you to haul him and his contract away. #Canucks
No kidding. Bye bye, Canucks season. RT @JimmySlims: Na na na na na na na hey hey hey this sucks!
What if “grammar Nazis” were (was?) a literal thing? http://www.collegehumor….
badbanana Wearing sandals to work because I’m having a good toe hair day.
@leemathews You’re right; on-screen controls do suck for gaming.
@digitalkitty Did you find a Mac HDD speed test tool?
Great Wired piece on Facebook; some new info that reinforces that canceling my FB account was the right move. http://bit.ly/9Uq3Rp
Just tried Byline 3.0 after seeing @chartier mention it. Wow, serious speed. I like Reeder, but I think I might be switching back to Byline.
I wear jeans and runners to work almost every single day, yet wearing black socks I feel “professional” and white I feel like an imposter.
@hnefatafl These two teams seem to have a polarizing effect on each other, somehow. One team’s on, the other one’s off. Weird.
@hnefatafl Agreed. Wouldn’t want to be in Salo’s shoes right now. Was great to see them step it up in every way; Chicago looked befuddled.
Just finished watching the end of the Canucks game on the PVR. Good work boys, nice to see signs of life! Need to do it all over again Tues.
Just deactivated my Facebook account.
Three words: Point Break Live http://bit.ly/cbsvZ1 All I can say is I wish it was playing in my town.
@JimmySlims Yeah, that’s pretty weird.
@hnefatafl Oh, you’d be right at home on a Mac! It’s just a pretty *nix OS.
Being a Canucks fan is painful in the post season.
@hnefatafl Haha - guilty as charged. I have enough ‘fun’ fixing Windows on other people’s machines.
BBonCanucks My coaching for next game: “6 or 7 goals is maybe too many to give up. Try to give up… you know… less than… I don’t know… 4. Ok?”
@Simbeau Unfortunately, it’s really moot. They might steal one more, but for all intents and purposes the series is over. Lu’s not clutch.
@hnefatafl And I’m platform agnostic, but prefer Macs.
@hnefatafl Just calling it like I see it. Lu’s overrated, not the clutch player he has the reputation as. Believe me, it pains me to say.
It looks like the Canucks just want to be put out of their misery at this point. They’ve got to be dreading having to play another game.
Ok, I’m calling it. Time of death, 8:57pm. RIP Canucks playoff hopes.
@leemathews Looking forward to it!
I’m giving up on Facebook and deactivating my account, at least for now. I just don’t trust them.

RT @sportsnetmurph: Looks like Demitra and Rypien are out, Grabner and Glass are in. (JC: Good, Demitra’s been awful.)
@geehoneybee Yeah, I tried it out. I ended up taking it off because of syncing issues. Saved me 2GB, though.
It’s 11:30 and I’m sitting down at my desk for the first time today. Yeah, it’s “one of those days”. #fb
@GlenTrainor <nerd warning> Do you think your radio has any actual transistors in it, or is it just an integrated circuit? </nerd warning>
badbanana Shipwrecked on an island with one album? I’d want Coldplay. I might need that final bit of encouragement to kill myself.
Looking forward to my 4 meetings scheduled for today. Sarcasm? No, haven’t heard of it.
It’d be nice to see Demitra take a hit to make a play.
Happily transferring my domains away from GoDaddy almost as much because of their horrible user interface as for their scumminess.
rands Fear is a decision.
@SuePolinsky Absolutely! Or worse, the site has search, but it’s useless. So thankful for Google’s “site:” search prefix.

If I could get the answer I need from your website, I’d damn well be doing it. Telling me every 3 minutes about your site just annoys me.
If you’re in charge of a phone system, just play bad music. That way people can put the phone on hands free and actually do something.
Being on hold is bad enough, but having to listen to tips and advertainment while waiting makes doing something else almost impossible.
(Those previous two toots are unrelated. No, really!)

“Thank you for continuing to hold. Your estimated wait time is greater than 5 minutes”. Sorry Shaw, I have a meeting. <click>
Shaw’s phone system knows I’m a new customer that wants to purchase business services. And I’ve been waiting for 10 minutes. Well done.
