  • Special thanks to Antoni and Laurel for cooking us an incredible pseudo-Japanese dinner last night! #
  • So far, there are 6 people in the audience at my talk. It's going to be intimate. #
  • Ok! 29 now. Feel better. :) #
  • Successful and fun talk at the Wildlife Photographers of Silicon Valley monthly meeting in San Jose. Thanks for hosting me! http://wpsv.org #
  • Keyboard shortcuts, Word 2011 for Mac: CTRL-SHIFT-M increases indent. What decreases indent? #
  • @tonywu Oh no! What about yum yum yellow? RT @science: Study finds sharks are probably color blind. http://bbc.in/fVzTjW #
  • These 13 hr days (incl driving) before starting my photo and other work are really starting to affect my energy. #
  • OK. How do I turn off Scroll Lock in Excel 2011 for Mac? I don't have a scroll lock key. Infuriating! #
  • @wooster I have no F14. I have up to F12. (I saw those articles -- tried trashing prefs, which also didn't work) #
  • Uploaded 250MB TWICE to El-Co Color Labs for a print order. Both failed after complete upload (tried two different browsers). Waste of 60min #
  • Nothing like a 90 min commute to start the day. Terrible traffic today! #
  • Anyone (domestic) want a Canon 2011 datebook? Got it from CPS. Free, plus $2 for shipping. http://yfrog.com/gyn3oasj #
  • Due to poor planning (not on my part), I will be commuting 200 miles today. Yee-haw. #
  • @alexkingorg Infinite battery life! But no backlighting. #
  • @johnolilly Probably for USB optical drive? I have a housed SuperDrive with no eject button. #

  • Google Voice now allows number porting (people are going to be confused!) http://ech.cc/fXoR6L #
  • Migrating primary data from notebook back to Mac Pro (less travel this year). It will be strange to be tethered to a desktop again! #
  • Hmm. DropBox supports sync over LAN, but I just connected a new machine to my account, and it is pulling data from the cloud. #
  • Just noticed that the background music I used in one of the videos for my WPSV talk had a bunch of f-bombs in it. #oops #
  • Hrm. Buy a $12.97 CD for lossless transfer, or $9.99 MP3s? Give me lossless download, please! #cdbaby #
