I’m Turning Off Weekly Twitter Reports

Since I don’t post enough on this blog, I’m going to turn my weekly Twitter reports. If I blogged at least once a week, it wouldn’t be a problem, but I often don’t so it was spamming my blog.

If you actually care about what I have to say on Twitter, just follow me. Note I do try to keep the random boring personal crap to a minimum, so don’t be scared to follow me. Infact I find I’m often Tweeting something interesting I find rather than writing a short blog post about it.

Twitter Weekly Updates For 2009-04-06

  • Starting to get burned out due to an excess of work. More normal sleep schedule would probably help (up until 7am every night of the week). #
  • The wonderful piece of software that is iTunes (that was sarcasm) managed to corrupt my entire library today. Awesome. #
  • RT @rmccue: Poll for new ops on #wordpress IRC channel: http://is.gd/pNYB (I recommend: Viper007Bond, sivel, and me (rmccue) :) ) #
  • Tomorrow is my least favorite day of the year. #
  • Woo hoo, GMail themes have finally come to Google Apps hosted e-mail! #
  • I must admit, I do enjoy the obvious jokes today. It’s the ones that attempt to actually fool people that I dislike. #
  • YouTube implements Australian-friendly interface: http://is.gd/q2ns http://is.gd/pZix (via @mark_forrester) #
  • Just watched Stranger Than Fiction for the first time. What a great movie. Will Ferrel was quite good. Good to see him in that type of role. #
  • Woah, never realized WP-Super-Cache’s settings page had collapsible items. In my defense, it doesn’t say they are anywhere. @donncha #
  • Oh, and it doesn’t save my expand/collapse preferences. Seems a bit silly of a feature then. :( @donncha #
  • No matter how many times I listen to Minutes to Midnight by Linkin Park, it never gets old. #
  • Quick and easy test to see if your Windows PC has Conficker or not: http://is.gd/qdWf #
  • RT @mattcutts: You really should try this Greasemonkey script for Twitter: http://bit.ly/RkVn It fixes lots of Twitter annoyances. #
  • I want to go to bed, but I have to get some more work done. /sigh #
  • Never seen the purpose of WP SEO plugins. I use WP out of the box (just pretty URLs enabled) and my blogs have a PR of 7 and 5. *shrug* #
  • RT @donncha: The 3 WP developer links I twittered last week: http://url.ie/1eur #
  • Woot, time to watch some Nitro Circus. #

Twitter Weekly Updates For 2009-03-30

  • Git seems really cool, but they forget not everyone is in love with command line. I have a mouse and prefer to use it. #
  • Get me a TortoiseSVN-style UI for Git and I’m sold. #
  • That’s odd. PC clock was an hour slow. Thought it was only 4AM. Time for bed I guess. #
  • RT @farkmain: Pilot who stopped to pray during a crash that killed 16 is sentenced to ten years of kneeling in jail: http://is.gd/oSbk #
  • Alpha/beta test SyntaxHighlighter 2.0 via SVN: http://tinyurl.com/cegr7a (WIP) #
  • Watching Law & Order: UK. The court scenes are quite hilarious due to the usage of wigs. What is this, the 1700’s? Get with the times, UK. #
  • Watching Truth in 24 documentary about Audi’s 2008 race at LeMons. Free on iTunes or via torrents. Epic movie. #
  • Damn. TV schedule said 2 new episodes of COPS tonight, but no torrent releases. Bah! #
  • v2.0.0 of SyntaxHighlighter released! http://is.gd/pukf Complete recode from scratch and now completely awesome! #
  • Wishing I had ops on the WordPress IRC channel so I could ban this guy with his broken IRC client (repeatedly joining/quitting). #
  • WordPress’ version numbering drives me nuts. Let’s just remove the first decimal to make it simple. Current version is “27.1”, next is 28.0 #
  • I say this because 3.0 won’t be revolutionary vs. 2.9 apparently, just the next version. I much prefer the Major.Minor.Bugfix format. #
  • Forgetting Sarah Marshall was quite good. Also helped that both female leads are smokin’ hot. #
  • Today’s Family Guy was the best in quite a while. F’ing hilarious! #

Twitter Weekly Updates For 2009-03-23

  • Family Guy really isn’t as funny as it used to be… :/ #
  • New version of SyntaxHighlighter ( http://is.gd/eRqG ) is coming along nicely. It’ll require WordPress 2.8 though. #
  • The cake is a lie: http://tinyurl.com/cugrh4 #
  • I still don’t get the appeal of SXSW. Sounds like too many people. — In other news, I need to stop going to bed at 8:30am. FAIL! Again! #
  • SyntaxHighlighter 2.0 plugin is coming along nicely. Can’t wait to use it on my blog. #
  • is hating TinyMCE. Plugin works properly with HTML editor, but TinyMCE is HTML encoding shortcode contents. Ugh. #
  • Oh damn, @eddieizzard is on Twitter. *immediately starts following* #
  • I watch “House” these days more for Olivia Wilde than for the story. Nothing wrong with the show, it’s just she’s so damn hot. #
  • Anyone know of an etiquette guide for naming forked software? Trying to cite/reference a source to someone who’s forked one of my WP plugins #
  • I must admit, no one is better at making crazy big weaponry than the Russians. Case in point, a hovercraft: http://englishrussia.com/?p=1908 #
  • DNS nameservers are down for weblogtoolscollection.com apparently. #
  • The the past 2 hours reading through hundreds of WordPress tickets. Cleaned up or closed over 30 of them. I’m tired. #
  • Erm, my last tweet should have read “Spent the past…”. I gotta learn to glance at my tweets before submitting. #
  • Came up with clever solution for posting code in WordPress: do the encoding/decoding at the editor rather than on display. Store it encoded. #
  • By storing the code HTML entity encoded, you don’t have to deal with kses. Saves a TON of trouble and only adds minor coding difficulties. #
  • James May of Top Gear is currently the 5th most popular subject on Twitter thanks to @stephenfry: http://is.gd/nQsn #
  • TinyMCE is making my life a living hell right now. Guess it’s time to sleep on it and see what solutions I can come up with. #
  • LOST was quite good tonight. Glad they’re actually making story progression, although these new questions they’re adding aren’t helpful, heh #
  • It’s nearly 7AM already? Shit. #
  • 1TB WD SATAHD for $90 on Newegg w/ free shipping: http://is.gd/ogjl #
  • Having the fastest PC in the house sucks. Currently rendering my sister’s Maya project for her college portfolio. ETA: a bajillion hours. #
  • 199,859 downloads of my Video Quicktags plugin. Many cookies to the person who gets a real screenshot of 200k! http://is.gd/j9Cd #
  • New favorite word (that I just accidentally thought up): failarious. Yes, I wasn’t the first to think of it, but still. :P #
  • Video Quicktags hit 200k downloads overnight! http://is.gd/omSD Major thanks to @Mango_Juice for the screenshot! :D #

  • I should use Hulu more for watching old stuff. Easier than torrenting. Not as good as same-day airings though (Hulu is delayed AFAIK). #
