2012-04-30 23:57:53 @obscurebug Have a look among your colleagues – they are the principal principle offenders!

2012-04-30 23:48:05 @PeterKretzman LOL!

2012-04-30 23:30:49 @johnnysunshine For all the people doing it, the companies concerned seem to be largely unprincipled. 😉

2012-04-30 23:28:24It’s embarrassing how many people list themselves as “principle” engineers on LinkedIn.

2012-04-30 15:14:46 @chrisridd A consumer camcorder only has a dodgy little audio jack, cables fall out easily. Beachtek has XLR.

2012-04-30 15:13:28 @MogdenPong Seems like a standard police mystery, set in Sicily, with great acting. Sadly, TV leaves out the books’ obsession with food.

2012-04-30 05:53:492 episodes of Montalbano in 1 evening – haven’t immersed myself that much in Italy and Italian in 3 years. Feeling disoriented now.

2012-04-30 05:52:01 @jacques Good luck and hugs all round!

2012-04-30 04:24:07Italian TV gets away with a lot more swearing that American. The subtitles weren’t entirely accurate. 😉

2012-04-30 03:19:21 @c_bright …and 4 more in May, use the search on “Montalbano”

2012-04-30 03:18:57 @c_bright – they’re repeating tonight’s ep at 9pm PT

2012-04-30 02:39:26Ok, it’s a little freaky for me to watch Montalbano on TV in the US.

2012-04-30 00:07:35Too lazy/sleepy to go to the store for salsa, so I’ll be having this with tonight’s quesadilla: Salsa Criolla

2012-04-30 00:02:39 @jmclulow It was bad enough in Europe.

2012-04-30 00:00:42Apologies to friends who count themselves Catholic, but how can anyone take the Church seriously as a moral entity?

2012-04-29 20:24:54Got the TV tuned so I can watch Montalbano on PBS. One of the few things I’d go out of my way for, and I’m therefore glad it’s intermittent.

2012-04-29 20:23:38 @timoreilly G+ would greatly benefit from easy Twitter integration, but I suppose you’ve said that already…

2012-04-29 19:04:22Whistling the theme from “All Things Considered” at the farmers’ market. How liberal can you be?

2012-04-29 18:32:42Who needs a botanical garden? My Oakland neighbors have plants I’ve never seen before! What is this?

2012-04-29 18:09:15 @mcavage I end up buying used paperbacks for many eg sci-fi classics I want to re-read.

2012-04-29 17:35:35 @chrisridd I need to update the article anyway. I’ve mostly given up fiddling with wireless mics and just use the Rode Videomic now.

2012-04-28 23:50:57So many tweet what you’re seeing on TV. I guess it’s a way of doing things together virtually, but it sorta makes me sad. Go DO something!

2012-04-28 18:25:31New home finally in shape enough – time for a dinner party!

2012-04-28 18:18:15Another angle of the same hall. Vinyl stick-on frames were the solution for the horrible old sliding closet doors.

2012-04-28 18:15:34I do have a short hallway suitable for frames.

2012-04-28 17:43:06I love lots of photos in frames, but the look is just too cluttered for my tiny apt. So I’ve ordered a digital photo frame to show off in.

2012-04-28 17:17:58 @jonasthaler I like the silver and turquoise prevalent in the southwest, too – looks good on both sexes.

2012-04-28 17:17:06 @jonasthaler I couldn’t do much with Italian – off the rack Italian fashion never fit me. Ranch hand works for me – cowboy boots are comfy!

2012-04-28 16:40:11 @jonasthaler Thanks! My own look will likely be non-fashion: vintage and designer clothing don’t fit me. But I’ll find something.

2012-04-21 06:11:30. @bubbva tried alternate keyboards – split Qwerty, Microsoft “Natural” – but they don’t travel well, Dvorak has been a more definitive cure.

2012-04-21 05:58:12Unexpected fringe benefit of Dvorak: almost no one wants to “borrow” my computer. @brendangregg can, but this is all his doing anyway.

2012-04-21 05:57:00Now that I’ve rewired my brain, it’s hard to use Qwerty – have to look at the keys.

2012-04-04 17:56:17So, this happened yesterday: DTrace Linux, Recorded on 4/3/12 joyent on USTREAM. Conference

2012-04-04 17:37:25 @alaindebotton The important point is whether arguing produces useful results or is just tearing each other up.

2012-04-04 17:28:49 @someara We only published the new logo on Monday!

2012-04-04 16:59:17 @someara We don’t have them yet, but it’s a good idea. T-shirts will also be coming.

2012-04-04 16:58:57 @oralaks Brendan’s definitely does, and I wasn’t aware of problems with the others during recording. I do have it all on tape anyway.

2012-04-04 06:43:18(NB: I do have everything on tape – yes, tape! – including the epic carousel ride, which could not be live streamed.)

2012-04-04 06:37:38UStream recordings of dtrace.conf available here: (sorry, forgot to start UStream record in 1st half hour of the day)

2012-04-04 05:55:48RT @ecdysone: I am now convinced that adding dtrace probes to ruby and rails would be a significant improvement of the human condition

2012-04-04 05:53:54 @natashabadhwar Actually, I think it works very well just that way.

2012-04-04 05:47:40 @imarambiocatan What we have so far is here: #dtraceconf

2012-04-04 05:46:59 @pharkmillups You’re welcome, but Alex was really the hero here!

2012-04-03 04:48:55 @NomdeB Yes, and I even remember thinking it was clever when I did it! But don’t remember where that clever place is.

2012-04-03 03:08:08After everything else I did today, I came home and vacuumed. There should be an award for that.

2012-04-03 02:49:21So I have managed to lose an entire category of clothing in my very small apartment… oh, well, needed new sweatpants anyway!
