I wonder if the people who use ow.ly links to track clicks realize how many people won’t click an ow.ly link because of the frame it uses?
Love it when people do their month’s banking at the cash machine with a line 8 deep, especially when there’s only one machine. Love it!
Is a non-beta version of The Hit List (and the iPhone version) the biggest piece of Mac vaporware in existence?
Hat tip to sir @siracusa for both of the previous links.

Why can’t Chrome figure out which account to use when I’m logged into a Google account and Google Apps account? The domain’s in the URL!

GaryDelaney Fun idea: Not got kids? Hire a babysitter anyway, say kid is asleep upstairs and not to be woken. On your return ask where your child is.
How did writers source ideas and people for their stories before they could beg their Twitter followers to do it for them?
minethatdata 22% of Groupon shoppers become repeat buyers. Hint: That’s not good, in fact, that’s really not good. My client average is 39%.
@chartier New Simplenote version has the word count stuff, far superior document handling, IMO.
@jsnell Agreed re: Elements. Simplenote does everything Elements does, with better file management.
@geehoneybee How do you know Tyler Wright? I’ve been following the story through your links and those of others - hope the story ends well.
@geoffgauthier Maybe Torres just likes scoring in GM Place… wouldn’t that be nice?

@chrismaddocks … I found it to be way too focused on marketing their services right back at you. Bad taste in my mouth.
@chrismaddocks I did the Dale Carnegie course (longer than what you’re looking for), and was somewhat disappointed. Had good stuff, but…
@chrismaddocks Curious why you’re looking for this. Can’t imagine you having any problems in any of these areas, so must be for your team?
lexfri Somebody please tell me when Calvetica supports multiple calendars. I want it then.
I am a master troublesharter.
I’ve already seen more negative comments about @jamescun’s Twifficiency than positive ones because of its auto-spam tactic. Nice job.
Mocking people without first determining their frame of mind is a bad move.
My scratchy throat has people at the office keeping their distance.

@dareiff If you have a project with multiple actions that contain sub-actions, there’s no way to re-order them within the project I can see.
@dareiff Yes, but not if the action contains sub-actions…
@OmniFocus How do you move actions that contain sub-actions up and down within a project on the iPad? Don’t see handles - am I missing them?
My complaints about @socialiteapp being crashy were unfounded; turns out it’s Flash that’s crashy (surprise, surprise).
@socialiteapp Just emailed. Thanks for the response, and checking into it!
@socialiteapp Tons! It defaults to the wrong email address for me (my work one instead of personal) so I have some in for both.
@geehoneybee Definitely, but I was rocking Mattea when I replied before, so I was on my phone. Just wrote 3 blog posts on the iPad.
@kcase You’re killing me! I’d have time tonight to explore it, but tomorrow and the weekend are chock-a-block fully booked.
@geehoneybee Got it! Race Car Ya-Yas!
@geehoneybee I want to say Stickshifts and Safety Belts, but I know that’s not right. Right album though.
Totally agree. RT @joshuatopolsky: My whole world falls apart when I don’t have paper towels in the house.
RT @ConanOBrien: The Kindle 3 was released yesterday. I read about it on my iPad.
@socialiteapp What if I’m getting the crashes even on Safari 5.0.1?
I wish @socialiteapp wasn’t quite so crashy - it’s awesome when working.
Write your first name out 10 times in a row. Starts to look weird, right?
@geoffgauthier “Pavel’s groin never felt better!”
@Gartenberg Are you really finding that you can move as accurately and quickly with the trackpad as with a mouse, without accidental clicks?
