@synfluent You use Macs in the mining industry? Just personally, or institutionally?
Less is not necessarily more, but enough is enough.

Up, up, and away! #fb
So wrong, but funny: RT @thedayhascome: Said the schizophrenic to the shepherd boy, “Do you hear what I hear?”
ferretthimself A woman tells her programmer husband: “Get me a quart of milk? And if they have eggs, get a dozen.” He comes back with 12 quarts of milk.

@JimmySlims He totally did - he was also very careful to make safe outlet passes. He was definitely a major factor in their win.
@JimmySlims Hey - saw Adam play an awesome game in goal at the soccer tournament in Richmond yesterday!

@danielpunkass How about you step out of your comfort zone to give it a try? They’re not villains for trying to motivate to try this way.
@kcase Strangely, that link doesn’t work in Gmail (at least in Chrome), though it does work in Mail.app. FWIW.
@leolaporte (The password part, not the Google part)
@leolaporte Love your stuff, but the “open” rhetoric is starting to get wearing. You often preface stuff with “Maybe I’m overreacting” Yup.
@geoffgauthier Yeah, in a good way.
If you’re a fan of EA’s iPhone/iPad games, they’re all on sale for $0.99 right now! Madden 11, Need for Speed, etc. http://bit.ly/gnP0Sd

@chartier It’s not as dumb as it seems; using something simple like 0 is better than using one of your real passwords.
Dec 15-19 Google will donate to charity on your behalf if you install Chrome for a Cause: http://bit.ly/fU738w (surprisingly not BS!)
@shawnblanc That’s awesome. Thank you.
@fmanjoo I totally agree; it’s arguably better to leave it set to a default and keep your “real” password(s) for important sites.
It amazes me that someone would choose to write an article for the Huffington Post about how incredibly dumb they are: http://huff.to/e6XM79
@JimmySlims It was a long time ago; the survey was about whether or not the Canucks needed a mascot (the year before Fin was introduced).
Before Christmas? Wow RT @AtlThrashers: Congrats to D Byfuglien who just set franchise record for goals in a season by a dman
@twf_support Wow, that was fast - thanks!
Related: From an economics point of view, why does anyone ever fill out a survey? There’s almost never anything in it for you.
It’s amazing how aggressive companies get about getting feedback on the support they’ve provided.
@geoffgauthier That’s 2.5% of what was naturally occurring in that variety before the decaffeination process. It’s miniscule.
I hear people say decaf coffee “still has lots of caffeine”. US regulations state that at least 97.5% must be removed to be called decaf.
How did @chockenberry manage to use the phrase “huge dock” in a tweet without using the CHOCKLOCK?

@jen_robbins On the bright side, if we get a cold snap soon… Insta-rink in the yard!
@ttscoff Sorry about that too - though I feel like I have a good sense of where nvALT is going, an it’s all good!
@ttscoff Sorry about “Supremo” - editor got a little colorful with the post title.
@ttscoff easyWriter? Nahh… something that riffs on Markup… MarkerFelt! No, wait…
This is for all the Star Trek, Lord of the Dance, or Harry and the Hendersons fans out there: http://i.imgur.com/2dr29…

Best texting miscommunication ever. http://pulsene.ws/urZG
@JimmySlims My head just exploded.
@JimmySlims That’d be pretty awesome. Totally relaxing, too… LOL
@JimmySlims Great idea, but I like the whole experience. I like to hear every crackle and pop as it happens, you know? Guess I’m a purist.
@JimmySlims Dude! I was going to turn it off, but now I have to watch it through to the end… hope it’s not too long.
Have Shaw’s firelog channel on in the background. The guy stoking the fire almost knocked a log out of the fireplace. That’d be exciting!
@JimmySlims Pisses me off that Hughson does the oh-so-important Toronto games instead of the Nux. Let’s see where TO is in the spring…
@melissawiebe Oh man - that would be brutal.
@melissawiebe Good, maybe CBC will get the message.
@melissawiebe Thanks - then I’m not crazy!
@ttscoff I assume it’s checking against standard NV.
@ttscoff BTW, any plans to make the Check for Updates command work for NV ALT?
@ttscoff Ahh, but of course!
@ttscoff VP touch?
@ttscoff (Which isn’t to say it’s not already awesome!)
I like Schneider’s mask, acknowledging the history of #canucks logos.
Seriously enjoying playing hockey again. Had a blast this afternoon with a fun team. #fb
It amazes me to see twins that have their own outfits. My boys aren’t even close to the same size, and I can’t keep their clothes straight.
OH (a parent, at kids soccer): “Chris? Oh yeah, he’s a good Jesus!”
badbanana Another disgusting breakfast of steak and eggs. Does the raw food diet ever get easier?
@aryayush I think Apple’s solution is just bigger screens.
“He isn’t making any sense at all. Quite literally, we don’t know what Mike is talking about right now.” re: RIM’s CEO http://engt.co/g7ubPt
@FogBugz I’ll try it, thanks!
Why do I sometimes have an intense desire for coffee in the morning when I only drink decaf? It’s not caffeine addiction… #fb
@FogBugz Can you forward an email to FogBugz creating a case with the original sender as the correspondent using Gmail as your mail client?
@GlenTrainor That sounds terrifying, even if it is fiction.

a4agarwal Large scale websites have a ton of moving pieces. There’s a lot that can go wrong and take the whole site down. It can happen to anyone.
Wow, I just learned to be careful about the hotkeys I’m pressing - just accidentally retweeted a pretty offensive tweet. Deleted.

About to satisfy my craving for the chemically smell of an indoor ice rink. Hockey time! #fb
@jen_robbins Sadly, for me they’re not mutually exclusive.
Or Angry Words (with Friends), but that’s already how I play it. RT @anildash: Yo, free million-dollar idea: Birds With Friends.
Gotta love ending the week with an empty inbox, especially since I struggled to keep it there all week.
I found @cknw’s email updates too soul-crushing, so now I filter out these words: sentenced | court | murder | parole | missing | beating
@GlenTrainor Mmmm, Big Rock - haven’t had one of those in ages. Enjoy!
scottsimpson Instead of playing FarmVille I just send blank email messages to myself and then delete them.
Random iTunes is random. A little Neil Diamond - touching me, touching you… Sweeeeeet Caroline! (Dah dah dah) #fb
If you’re trying to blog and tweet like @gruber, stop it. He has a head start on you, you’re never going to catch up. Be different.
@timbray I like Choosy for that - choosyosx.com
I think letmegooglethatforyou.com (lmgtfy.com for short) might be one of my favourite websites.
irreverend I was ready to answer the question about where babies come from, but eggs? “From a chicken’s butt. Finish your breakfast.”
I feel like I have 10 tennis ball throwing machines firing at me at the same time, and only one racket.
@chartier Are you having iTunes transcode the music to 128bit to save space? That’ll do it.
badbanana Remember, it takes fewer muscles to flip someone off than it does to give a high five.
