Sounds like it’s official that Winnipeg is getting an NHL franchise back! Congrats, Manitoba! Here’s hoping they take back the JETS name.
@MikeTRose Your family’s story is fascinating and inspiring; congratulations to both of you!
@hotdogsladies I don’t know if this happens for everyone, but I can’t scroll using my mouse’s scroll wheel on KFG. Just that site.
hotdogsladies Okay, who the FUCK moved my Buddhism book?
@JimmySlims I think you’ll need to do more than just kiss some ass…
@AllanEdwin No kidding! The majority of it is just plain awful!
@rands What term do you prefer?
@ChicagoCodeTwit just wanted to let you know I’m not Jason Clarke the actor.
@JimmySlims What a present that would be!
Crocs & Socks <- that’s the name of my new band.
I don’t care what they say about us anyway /
I don’t care ‘bout that
Woo-hoo, but you know I’m yours /
Woo-hoo, and I know you’re mine /
Woo-hoo, and that’s for all time #fb
Did you get all fired up about Urban Outfitters stealing a design from an Etsy user? You should probably read this: http://t.co/D7bBcb8
@schoffer I haven’t really looked into the new ones much - we bought a refubished 27” quad iMac last year, loving it.
@geoffgauthier Radiating lightning bolts. Equally distasteful.
@shawnblanc Please, please do a AppleScript / Keyboard Maestro section on your site!
@schoffer Yeah, exaxctly - I’m _that_ kind of optimist.
For me the words optimistically and stupidly are synonyms. For example, today I optimistically didn’t bring a jacket to work.
What if everything ran on gas? http://t.co/A62SQyG
@geoffgauthier How is Manny being cleared for full-contact practice *not* awesome? He will play again this year, even if only for a shift.
I hate when web services like Google and Twitter announce new features, then roll them out slower than molasses. Tell me *after* I have it.
@geehoneybee I went i5, because the i7 was a LOT more expensive.
@geehoneybee Go for refurbished from Apple.ca then. Some good deals there (I know, I’m a broken record).
@geehoneybee That sucks dude. Any deals on Apple hardware at Best Buy?
@geehoneybee Did you punch the screen or whip the cable at it or something?
@geehoneybee Holy shit, did that just happen? What’d you do?!
dmoren Just looked up The Jetsons for a gag and discovered that there were only two seasons: one that aired in ’62-’63 and one that aired in *1985*
I think @sparrowapp is beautiful, but it feels noticeably slower than Gmail’s web app using keyboard shortcuts. Native needs to feel faster.
@asianefficiency I don’t know how long comment subscriptions have been broken for, but I’m going to have to turn it off for now.
@asianefficiency Thanks for the comment, and the heads-up re: the subscription link. I’ll look into it.

Overheard in the lunchroom this morning: “Was there some sort of hockey game last night?”
If your email to me starts with “Dear valued professional,” it will be automatically marked as spam and deleted immediately.
Twitter’s rolling out an email notification that lets you know if someone you follow retweets or favorites one of your Tweets. About time.
@geehoneybee Guess you did. Had a few tonight.
Wouldn’t want to be San Jose coming to Vancouver for game 5.
@GlenTrainor Go Canucks! Time for some “Rupture” for the Sharks!
@JimmySlims My guess is it’ll be Ballard and Tanev.
@rotatedtoenails Don’t be ignorant. Read Brett’s site: he’s completely up front about the fact that nvALT is a fork of the original NV.
@SlvrLambStudios Yikes, that’s good to know (but not good news!). Thanks!
@geehoneybee Poor guys. How’s Curtis today?
One of my kids just puked for no apparent reason. Now he’s sleeping fitfully on top of me. Poor little green dude.
@danfrakes If you know of a MarkDown syntax highlighting app for iOS, please tell me!
This long weekend can’t come fast enough. #fb
I can’t believe how cheap of a player Thornton is. Eager too. And Clowe.
Sharks are embarrassing themselves.
Google’s changing their motto. Now it’s, “Don’t be Twitter.”
I think @Reeder for Mac needs to either emulate Google Reader’s navigation shortcut keys, or NetNewsWire. The current in-between isn’t good.
@chartier Or did you just un-encrypt the backup first?
@chartier Does that mean you’re up the creek, so to speak? No restore for you?
How do you mark someone as spam in Twitter for Mac? I can see how to block, but mark as spam … ?
@chartier What happens when you uncheck the Encrypt backup check box? That’s what I ultimately did.
@chartier I dealt with that recently. Make sure you’re not syncing or backing up when you’re typing password, or it will reject it.
Apple’s new Noteworthy font looks like a slightly (and only slightly) less ugly Markerfelt: http://t.co/HMUOmUv
@chartier I find the wisdom of my Twitter stream more useful than Facebook; on Twitter I choose who I follow. On Facebook they choose me.
@chartier That phrase made me chuckle: “the wisdom of your Facebook network”.
@sportsnetmurph I guess I should have said “is eligible to get name on cup” if they were to win it.
@sportsnetmurph A buddy has a good theory: Manny dresses for one game, plays one or two shifts. Gets name on cup.
@ttscoff Don’t judge it based on one day; it’s going to be uncomfortable for a couple weeks, until you get stronger. Then, it’s great!
@rands There is no VP of Sales at Apple, as long as you don’t include Steve Jobs. CEO should always be your best salesman.
I bought the Productive Macs bundle yesterday. It’s fantastic. Worth it just for TextExpander and Path Finder. http://t.co/wJ915eT
I can’t believe how much spam I’m getting to my Google Apps @gmail inbox. 3 to 4 a day, every day for the past 3 weeks.
Don Cherry: national embarrassment. #fb
Busy morning: Josh’s ball hockey, kids selling stuff for charity, new kitchen table, took old one away. Now, gonna go play some hockey! #fb
bpm140 Wanna feel old? If they remade Back to the Future now, they would be traveling back to 1981.
Twitter 2.1 - now with a little less of the stylishness that made 2.0 awesome.
Twitter 2.1’s worst new feature: no longer remembers position when shutting down and restarting it.
@GlenTrainor You couldn’t have told me that before I left home and got stuck in that brutal traffic?!
My wife is awesome. #fb
@geehoneybee That doesn’t sound like a Twitter issue, it sounds like a feature! A glorious, glorious feature!
That’s not flying, it’s falling with style! http://t.co/e8deblt
It’s a little overwrought, but the point (sitting is bad for you) is certainly clear: http://bit.ly/lZCUG6
TwitPic clarifies Terms of Service changes, users still own content: http://bit.ly/iApGeg
@GlenTrainor That video first aired in Nov, 2007. Wonder what happened to them?
Be aware that if you use TwitPic, as of May 4 doing so gives them the rights to sell your photos: http://twitpic.com/terms…

@GlenTrainor Agreed - love the hit, too.
Resetting the Furthest Read Location across your Kindle devices is a hassle, but this tip helps: http://t.co/pdRORRG
I wish I was clever enough to come up with a joke about the Microsoft/Skype deal. Should I go with bad UI, or MS’s bad product naming?
@JimmySlims Kestiny - I like it!
chartier Know what the world needs? Another 400,000,000 WordPress themes with giant horizontal image sliders. No other layouts. Just that one.
Wow, I’d hate me if I was following me right now - two contest entry posts in a row. Yuck.
@geoffgauthier “Dr. Who Gives a Shit?”
@kcase Forecast view is great when using due dates, but many favor start dates. Any chance of an alternate Forecast view based on Start?
On the plus side, I’m married to my best friend, and she’s hot! Guess we’ll have to stay in.
The shittiest thing about being married to your best friend is that it’s hard to get out and do fun things together in the evenings.
I’m gonna kick it root down.
LOL RT @chockenberry: KKKKKHHHHHAAAANNNNN PANTS
And the boy was something that mommy wouldn’t wear.
Playoff hockey is exciting, especially when your team is still in, but why do we have to be playing these guys (pic)? http://bit.ly/iQUPQg
@geoffgauthier I actually brought a pair of Crocs to wear at my desk as backups in case my new shoes start to hurt. So, emphatic YES.
@geoffgauthier It’s not as out-of-context as one might think.
