Twitter Weekly Updates for 2010-12-25

  • Hey, buddy, next time follow @wilw's Law and either learn how to park or leave me a can opener… http://plixi.com/p/63864996 #
  • In case there's any confusion, that was a double-line parking space and the guy was way over the line on his side. Wtf #
  • Upgraded my netbook to Ubuntu 10.10 Netbook Edition & (finally) installed Chromium (the Linux flavor of Chrome) #
  • Also (finally) picked up an updated copy of the O'Reilly HTML & XHTML Pocket Reference… old one only went up to HTML 4.01… #
  • Now if I could just find an updated pocket reference for CSS… I need one for CSS3 #
  • Oh, and I saw Tron yesterday. Liked it. Wouldn't mind seeing it again sometime. Maybe tomorrow? #
  • The CGI work on the de-aged Jeff Bridges was impressive, but the technology still has some work left to it. The lips weren't quite right. #
  • played Star Trek Online (PC) in the last 24 hours. http://raptr.com/TheHarlander #
  • Saw Tron again, this time in 3D & w/ Claire. She never saw the 1st Tron but enjoyed this one. Interesting how real-world was all shot in 2D #
  • Starting up on a redesign for my home page… first bit is a new logo image, which is already live on the site: http://jeffreysworld.net #
  • I made the logo in GIMP; the background is from Hubble, but the planets & moon are completely original works of mine #
  • Huge shout-out to http://mygimptutorial.com/the-ultimate-gimp-planet-tutorial for showing me how to do those. They look incredible #
  • Appropriately, I've been working to the Tron: Legacy soundtrack. It absolutely sold the movie, and I think it deserves an Oscar nod #
  • @A_Peabody It's been pouring rain in Southern California for the last 3 days. All I'll see is a faceful of water in reply to A_Peabody #
  • @A_Peabody Heavy rains are normal for winter in California. They last a few weeks, maybe a month, and then clear skies for another year. in reply to A_Peabody #
  • @360MagazineDan Heck yeah. Nothing like cheering for fellowship with the Reborn of Talsiman. And that's one heck of an updraft, btw. in reply to 360MagazineDan #
  • So, yeah, it's been raining pretty much nonstop for the last week, now. Welcome to California, enjoy the monsoon season. #
  • Gotta be at work in 20 minutes. I suppose I should get dressed, then… #
  • Just got Gwibber set up in Ubuntu 10.10. Much nicer/more convenient than I'd expected. #
  • Heading to the airport in an hour… #
  • Cute. Little girl at airport McDonald's said to her mom "I'm getting bigger as you so that's why I can drink tea!" #
  • Elusive, they are. RT @OCReggie Oh, wow, a double rainbow in Irvine. http://ow.ly/3tKZ4 ^SQ #
  • Just landed in Denver. Heading to my connection with a 2-hour layover #fb #
  • OK it's a 1 hour layover not 2. Phone automatically changed time zone & threw me off #
  • On the plane for Wisconsin. Should be taking off again soon. #fb #
  • Oh, it figures. Steam has Fallout: New Vegas on sale for 50% off and I'm too broke to get it now… #
  • At least I was able to get Fallout 3 when it went on sale a couple days ago #
  • My uncles are trying to find something to watch on TV. Uncle #1 "Hawaii Bowl is on." Uncle #2 "Is it a bowl game?" Ah, family… #
  • Playing poker with my relatives #
  • Started strong but got knocked out on the 25th hand. Went all in with 2 pair but my cousin had a straight. C'est la vie #
  • @gadgetdoll my aunt heard my "Aw, man" moment and later said Merry Christmas, she'd pay for it #
