did I tweet this yet? New video – Maximizing Application Performance with Sun Studio – Oracle Solaris Video http://bit.ly/akeA5T #
@mschoenu unfortunately, the avg cost of living in Italy is higher than the avg salary, if you can get a job at all. Lovely country, but… #
Heartbreaking when people who wd & want to be great parents cannot be. Perhaps worse that many who are so bad at it so easily become parents #
@TheWorldCalls If you still need help w/that Italian phrase, try @DeirdreS @seancarlos @rosso #
@mkapor recently was on a flight w parents who apparently believed in let it cry itself to sleep. NOT acceptable on planes. #
I totally belong in this city. #
Hmm. I don’t get to sleep more than 5 or 6 hours a night now? #
RT @chrisfaron: late #followfriday @monicacesarato @noziotravel @DeirdreS @ciaolaura @stephenfry @RunwayGirl #ff #
That’s an interesting & engaging question RT @DeirdreS: Who are you people and why are you following me? #
Using DTrace for Gnome Performance Analysis – new video from OSDEVCON 2009 http://bit.ly/aWgUV2 #
My arms hurt from moving boxes, which I had to do because neither shipping nor facilities would. Workplace injury. Need a massage. #
created a playlist on YouTube, cannot for the life of me figure out how to tell anyone how to get to it, or even get to it myself. ??? #
@bubbva remind me when and where performance will be? #fb #
I have so many stories, that are not mine to tell… Sounds like a line from a song or poem, but it’s simply my life. #
@montymunford can’t dm you unless u follow me. I & my daughter both graduated from Woodstock school, glad to give any info you want #
RT @TEDchris: Should we fear aliens? Jill Tarter’s response to Stephen Hawking http://bit.ly/98iBth #
@substudio actually, figuring out how to preserve and safely share our logsrithmically growing digital lives is a fascinating challenge #
Guy in a black suit with secret service style earphone walking the train. Why? #
@substudio LOL. No, they’re not talking about garden sheds #

new video from OSDEVCON: Dead ends in Multithreads Application Development – Oracle Solaris Video http://bit.ly/99SU98 #
RT @CommunispaceCEO: Gehry: Our culture doesn’t support the visual kids. They are marginalized because they can’t get an A in math. #
lunch catching up with T made the trek to Menlo worthwhile. #
@bubbva bldg 18, but may move unless my teammates start showing up around here! #
@NomdeB turmeric and honey taken how? #
I like being on campus with colleagues, but these days I also love working from my own apt. #
Have you considered that I defend this point with tenacity and passion because I am sure I’m right about it? #
I’ve learned my lesson: any form of commuting falls apart when it rains here; better to work from home when there’s weather. #
@bubbva good tip thx tho today’s prob was the shuttle due to a traffic light being out #
@bubbva I should be in most mon, tues, fri, love to have lunch together! #
I am happy to fight when the cause is worthy, but I’m tired of fighting the same damn battles over and over and over… #
@Joanmarie more like job-related whack-a-mole. The same pesky problems keep rearing their ugly heads. #
RT @ben: Listening to @glynnfoster on Solaris and Oracle virtualisation – yay Glynn! #
why don’t you just leave, then? – I wonder why it is always those like me who are asked that question? http://bit.ly/9JcusJ #
Mayor Franco Tentorio said he believed the images of same-sex couples kissing might upset some members of the public. http://bit.ly/945ReO #
why, yes, I am having beer and chocolate cake for dinner, thank you very much. #
wondering whether I should split my twitter into two accounts, one for work/techie, one for… everything else. Your thoughts? #
RT @montymunford: <AND SO SAY ALL OF US!> RT @gambino: Brazil official urges more sex for better health http://bit.ly/d5AIYW -dancing, too! #
@bubbva ouch! #fb #
@reiger uh…. which part? 😉 #
@izzyvideo have yet to see one, have no particular yearnings. #
@glynnfoster I suspect that even not quite your best was still plenty good. #
@ebertchicago Vincere more accurately translates as to win. I’ll have to see the film to understand how the title fits. #
is there an easy way to import a bunch of pages from one WordPress blog into another? #
saw a rainbow over SF this morning, now looking at blue sky through rain-streaked windows. #
@davegraham I like it. Wd you rather be remembered lying bizarrely formal and composed in a coffin, or doing something you loved? #
@digitalsista For ~30 yrs I’ve been just me online, don’t need/want multiple identities. Have seen multiple IDs become probs for others… #
@digitalsista …with everything/one so connected, worlds collide, then messy public reconciliation of multiple selves becomes necessary. #
Umm, I guess I just answered my own question about whether to split my Tweetstream. I’ve always been one single me, better stay that way. #
my southern roots are showing: making biscuits for breakfast. No molasses to go with them, alas. #
storage folks: how many of you remember blogs.sun.com/storage ? Was it useful? Want it back? #
@missbhavens I had a tiny insect inside the screen of a Dell years ago, crawling around til I accidentally squashed him. His corpse remained #
New! Storage FMA – Eric Schrock presents at the Open Storage Summit 2009 http://bit.ly/duE9c8 (yes, this is very late… long story!) #
HATE how FB apps get around hide settings by giving subfeatures diff names. May have to start hiding everyone who uses these annoyances. #
nice at-home dinner with old friends who have also left Italy. I think we’re a movement by now. @euaccess @rosso we’re waiting for yooooo… #
RT @planspark: Toes, meet furniture. Ouch! – I broke two toes (one on each foot) within a month last summer. Bad furniture, bad! #
@PizzoC have you heard the Chenille Sisters’ version? La la la listen to your mamma… #
@rosso that’s right! We’ll have enough for our own high tech trade association. #
problem with a Skype phone is it makes me appear to be always online. So the kid called at 4:30 am and I’ve been awake ever since. Yawn. #
@faseidl thanks, but I don’t think that works when the only connection to skype is the skype phone #
dreamt that Larry came & (nicely) told me to clean up paper on my desk because it looked untidy. Cdn’t tell him it was my daughter’s mess. #
trying out local cheeses: last night: Humboldt Fog goat chese with a layer of ash inside, and Cowgirl Creamery’s Red Hawk. Both very yummy. #
@tgardner sign at restaurant at St Maarten nudist beach: No shoes, no shirt, no shorts – no problem! #
@penelopetrunk sure that’s not just to impress the guests? 😉 #
investigating a spike in traffic to my site, found this Impara linglese con Elio e le Storie Tese! http://bit.ly/ctjDrP #
…pretty cool to have my site pointed out by a famous Italian band! #
@johnnysunshine meet @italylogue @c_bright , good friends, travelers geeks & Portland res/experts. Jess/Chris, John’s a cool colleague #
I know the human race is doing the best it can but, hells bells! that’s only an explanation, it’s not an excuse. Don Marquis #
RT @zephoria: I just watched The Internet is Made of Cats. http://bit.ly/9zUQKq My life is complete. I’m officially happy. #
@NomdeB ate way too much of that Red Hawk today, with Acme ciabatta bread and grapes it was purrrrrfect. #
@feliciaday weirdly, people seem to get madder over free stuff they miss out on than something they never had a chance at, at all #

@SaberMarketing thanks. Did you guys start following me because I talked about Maker’s Mark? 😉 #
weekend? Ikea, Costco, Chinatown, test new vacuum, cook, maybe play with cats in the sunshine in J&J’s garden… I’ll think of something! #
are you a young person looking for true adventure? Woodstock Gap Semester in the Himalaya http://bit.ly/cKkiNC #
Exhausted by constant demands to be aware of, let alone care about, everyone’s pet causes. All worthy, but there’s only so much of me! #
@msgilligan FB definitely spawns them, but I get stuff on Twitter as well. @johnnysunshine Agreed, I don’t see the point of mere awareness #
@llcrowe I don’t think Brendan shouting at hard disks was heart touching. Compelling sort of. Still the most viral thing Sun ever did. #
@thinguy I wasn’t at the old Sun long enough to be so emotionally invested. And, anyway, I need the job. 😉 #
@jlb13 My daughter at ~18 mos discovered that glass was breakable. Accidental the 1st time, not the 2nd! Not only #boys #break #shit #
@Roam2Rome I miss rambutans, and mangosteens were my childhood favorties. Nowadays it’s mangos, but those imported to the US are just sad. #
June will be back to school month for me (yes, in addition to my day job). All set for an extremely busy summer. #
@bklein34 digital film (10 wks), and ZFS administration (3 days) #
@legeza no! thanks for the alert. It shows in the overview as being 17 mins, but only runs for 1… will fix #
woke up at 6:30 in a panic: Where am I supposed to be today? Had to think hard to figure out it was Saturday. But I still have work to do. #
new video! Introduction to the Chime Visualization Tool for DTrace – Oracle Solaris Video http://bit.ly/aJMjvA #
@jlb13 it was funny, tho, the look of pure mischief she gave me as she raised the glass bottle over her little head & flung it to the floor #
@kbeninato won’t do any good; people see truth where they wish to. And that goes for all sides. #
@NomdeB this one should be good – 10 week intensive course at the Berkeley Digital Film Institute. Will have teh mad skillz! #

@zaps benvenuto a San Francisco, mio nuovo paese! #
@lskrocki I wasn’t a Sunny all that long, but, while I saw lots of women in engineering there, not many seemed to make it to the exec ranks. #
the trip to Ikea alone is tiring, then there’s the new stuff to haul up and put together, then I tested the new vacuum cleaner… tired! #
I don’t miss Italy most of the time, and/but it’s nice to be around people who know exactly what I mean when I talk about it. #

Oh, right… my neighborhood will be overrun with web 2.0 people this week, keeping the local bars hopping. #
people keep asking if I miss Italy. Don’t need to – Italy appears intent on coming to me, at least for a visit! And I’m enjoying that. #
@vdotw uh oh exception for what? #
RT @oracletechnet: It’s true, Mason St. between OFarrell and Ellis will be completely tented for the developer community. #javaone10 #

@bsousapt well, that was in the Bush era. Many other expats felt the same. But some are returning now, especially from Italy. #

@NomdeB http://gretachristina.typepad.com/ opined that these hypocrites fight hardest against what they fear most in themselves. #
so my site is somehow infected with badware, and Google is so intent on protecting me that it’s difficult-to-impossible to find and fix #

@FakeAPStylebook now explain tenets vs tenants and peek vs peak vs pique (with sneak) #
have a bad case of I don’t want to be sitting at this desk. Spring fever? #
@Danjite I missed most of my summer last year, will have to find someplace warmer than SF to enjoy some sunshine this year. #
it’s a crisp spring day outside, why am I freezing in the overdone A/C in the office? More reasons to work from home… #

RT @leapingwoman: a friend is aghast at yet another celebrity’s infidelity. – What planet is your friend from? #
@HumanityCritic Oh, dear, you mean you’re a standard-issue heterosexual male? 😉 #

We found it on the Oracle grid. huh? I thought we didn’t telegraph our launches? #
