Twitterbomb AWAY!

  • 07:49 EPIC fucking Nike Fail: www.chaobell.net/blawg/?p=631 #
  • 07:59 @ahruman Dear Nike...one name: Willie Gault...Football Player, ballet practicioner. #
  • 07:59 @jearle hee, thanks! #
  • 08:59 @MikeTRose blame @mercuralis. She was the one making me see the bad thing #
  • 09:07 @MikeTRose nah, she just likes hearing people scream in terror. #
  • 09:07 hey, anyone with iWork '09: Do Keynote and Numbers have that same "Send via Mail" option as Pages? #
  • 09:13 @jonathanboyett cool. Hey, did you get a chance to test open file locking in iWork? #
  • 09:56 joy, apple only partially fixed the file locking issue in iWork '09 #
  • 09:57 @turkchgo @Angry_Drunk it's extra precious. It replaced my iWork '08 icons with iWork '09...assholes #
  • 10:05 @GreyAreaUK you can't delete the file from either the local finder, or an AFP share... #
  • 10:05 @GreyAreaUK but, you can open a file that someone else has open, and delete everything out of it, and if you save last, YOU WIN #
  • 10:05 @SLB are you a ballet dancer? because if you are, you could really kick him HARD #
  • 11:00 @jxpx777 yep. New campaign: "Nike: Because being an ignorant douchebag is cool" #
  • 11:01 @jxpx777 I told my son once, when he was giggling about male ballet dancers: "Kid, you WISH you'd ever get laid as much as barishnikov" #
  • 11:53 @iacas that's one of the worst parts about podcasts...listening to myself. I always sound much better in my head #
  • 12:22 SCO selling their assets...damn, and I just cleaned the change out from the couch #
  • 12:45 @the_megan_fox does it really matter which part? #
  • 13:15 @nadyne tell them it's like an audio only video chat, but with dedicated hardware #
  • 13:16 playing around with Version Cue and iWork '09 files #
  • 14:56 @bratling since it's now a flat-ish file, i'm not sure #
  • 15:03 @MitchWagner Carol Bartz? Yay, Yahoo! on the way to being Windows-only! #
  • 15:49 @GlennF I work with a guy whose wife figured that out, and when his ring broke, refused to replace it for that reason #
  • 15:57 Finally, a decent pick of me, by @shawnking: tinyurl.com/72nnhw #
  • 16:31 @ShawnKing I'd love the full-size version. I've relatives who keep bothering me for pics #
  • 16:32 @StirThingsUp it's okay. The file type problem was email applications not knowing how to deal with folderfiles. Mail & e'rage do well #
  • 16:33 @StirThingsUp but I wish it was send via *email*, not just send via Mail.app #
  • 17:24 @ShawnKing RAW is fine #
  • 18:58 @flargh Currently, that's the only way, mostly due to how Sync Services was waaay back when that first started. #
  • 18:59 @mdeatherage I've heard of it, but never seen it. The problem is, sans analysis, CPU load is a useless metric #
  • 18:59 @mdeatherage if you have a busy AFP server, it SHOULD be using a gob of CPU #
  • 18:59 @mdeatherage although, unfortunately, Apple's AFP server kind of blows. the best one runs on Windows: ExtremeZ-IP #
  • 20:17 @gkra For one, Kerberized SMB without AD is a pain in the ass, and AFP is better in a mostly Mac environment. #
  • 20:17 @gkra also, automounting SMB is not something I'd want to do sans Active Directory. #
  • 22:08 @poorheather D00d! Hot Chicks with Douchebags ROCKS #
  • 23:11 @ejacqui The true ST geeks say "Rihannsu" not "Romulan" to begin with #

Steve Jobs takes medical leave

Surprise, surviving cancer is fucking hard, and announcing this before the quarterly earnings session was a good thing.

However, and I know I'm alone in this, and it's futile, but could people please, please, PLEASE not lose their fucking minds about this, and TRY to be even BARELY rational? Better yet, don't fucking bombard every apple.com email address you know with stuff.

Leave the man alone for a bit, he's going to be busy enough as it is. Just once, how about the internet not be a douchbag collective about this.

Also, speaking as someone who's lost both parents, and too many relatives to various forms of Cancer, I hope people leave him and his family the fuck alone. They're dealing with a ton of shit right now, and for the foreseeable future. The last thing they need are intarwebtards fucking with them.
