This weekend is 30 degrees colder than the end of the week. Then I get in the Outback and remember “Heated seats!”

Talking to my boss about my first quarter on the team:

Me: “I always feel like I’m not getting enough done and the things I do I’m not doing fast enough. Then I think about the team and wonder how people would be getting by if I wasn’t here.”
Boss: “Yeah, welcome to my life!”

Mobile Twitter Client Request

Posted on December 10, 2015
Filed Under handhelds | 4 Comments

Does anyone know of a mobile Twitter client (preferably at least one each for iOS and Android) that allows you to point to arbitrary sites that implement the Twitter API? I know of some that let you use multiple services, but I want to use this with a demo of how easy it would be to replicate the API on our system. It can’t be a predefined system the client knows about, I want to point to the top of a hierarchy with the Twitter API under it and have the client work.

Anyone have any ideas for this? It is a remarkably hard thing to Google for.

Whadda You Want From Me?

Posted on December 2, 2015
Filed Under music, podcasting | Leave a Comment

Ever since playing this song on Mad at Dad the other day, I’ve had Billy Squier’s “Whadda You Want From Me” in my head. It’s been 48 hours with no sign of slowing down, so why not share it with everyone? I hadn’t heard this song in easily 15 years, maybe more like 25. I had forgotten 1) how good it is and 2) it is totally an Aerosmith song that Joe Perry didn’t write.
