@KathySierra the trick is to look like you’re sharing all, while actually concealing much.
@nonstick that was more like Not Safe for Human Eyeball Consumption
@vdotw hey, mine came with a warning. 😉
Back at DIA, glad to be escaping to warmer climes
I asked for warmer weather, not quakes. Y’all settle down out there!
the people you see wearing pyjamas in airports are generally the people you’d be LEAST interested in seeing in their bedroom wear
@NomdeB I use SkypeOut, gives me a local number to dial and then I’m on Skype rates (plus cell minutes).
bummed I didn’t think to buy the Economist’s Christmas issue while it was out. My subscription is still in Italy.
@johnnysunshine I usually see them in airports. Reminds me of the time I saw an American woman in a Jakarta supermarket in curlers…
@ringae I see a lot of American teenagers in PJs at Heathrow, always makes me cringe for my country’s public image.
what is the message of PJs in public anyway? I’m too busy/lazy to get dressed I don’t give a sht what the world thinks, I’m comfy?
@bubbva thanks! Looking forward to seeing my multifarious Bay Area gang.
@NomdeB I seem to be simplifying my life by shedding relatives. 😉
(No, I’m not killing them!)
If I’d known I’d have status on frontier by now, I wd not be flying united today. Paying for a bag and last-priority boarding
@ringae not an Italian, certainly
Landed sfo. Waiting for my bag.
C’mon Bart people I have arrived. That means we can leave!
Omg Harvey fierstein in fiddler on the roof. I. Must. See.
@llcrowe me, too.
Great evening carousing with @Schlomo @jeffreytaylor and John. Bit of a headache this morning, but I’m smiling.
On my way to Daly City for #clswest Looking forward to seeing old friends and new. Sorry @saraford and @rohrer won’t be there.
@hemantmehta even atheists can be ignorant, especially under heavy propaganda
@tehduh and you lose points for just running a check. It’s an absurd system that hurts the consumer
#clswest interesting points on online trust and reputation – what’s out there today sucks. (Amazon ratings are a gd example – v abusable)
Will be speaking on comunity video #clswest Shd be fun – saw a lot of faces light up when I announced it. I’m in sudha & irene’s session
Did v little of the talking in my #clswest session on video – more useful to head from the 30 people in the rm, we’ ll be collaborating!
sorry I had to duck out of #clswest early – another monster headache. But, as expected, was excited and inspired by soe many awesome folks
@VespaDee you’ve reached me. What’s the question?
after a stimulating #clswest yesterday, enjoying a lazy day off today. I may nap.
tried drinking less caffeine today in case that was contributing to my headaches. This led to nap, chocolate, and appetite.
Countries Beginning with I Coffee Art http://bit.ly/7WozW9
Note to self: do not ever again take BART from SFO with luggage. Arm still sore from hauling suitcase up steps at destination.
I guess yesterday was No Pants Day on Bart. That would explain the gang of people we saw coming out of a station in their knickers
Moved over to The Mosser. Like the funkiness az long az it’s not too noisy. Took a while to find drawers – under the bed.
love being in a place where I can walk and walk and walk

doing video housekeeping today, in case you couldn’t tell
@standaloneSA thanks. Any other #SysAdmin events I should be aware of?
@pschow working on it. Anything particular you’re just dying to have video of?
@pschow Heh, that’s too easy: http://bit.ly/8T5oYS
@pschow …but please be more specific if you can, what else do you need to know about COMSTAR?
@standaloneSA thanks. In fact we’re good buds with USENIX, I’m just organizing a couple of BoF sessions for FAST in Feb.
some days it’s okay to do fiddly stuff that doesn’t require much brainpower (but nonetheless needs to get done)

head exploding again. Not with headache, just with stuff I need to do. On the upside, that stuff includes book a lot of exciting travel
Early start tomorrow to get to sun’s menlo park office to teach another videoblogging workshop… And do a zillion other things…
Night of stress induced bad dreams makes waking up easy, but lack of sleep will not improve this day.
Have no idea where to look for the Sun shuttle at menlo park caltrain. Anyone?
@adamsbaldwin how about including the many of us who are not under god?we’re still Americans.
@jimgris cool!
Have caltrain prices gone up? 6 from sf to mpk seems like a lot
@romyilano ugh. I’m hoping to get rid of my car altogether – car payments + parking in SF just not worth it.
The Register Grid Engine is the first workload manager with support for applications created using Hadoop http://bit.ly/8xRdyd
trained more people in video at Sun this morning, sent them off with cameras & mics. It’s fun when trainees are excited to apply knowledge
@vococreative no, but extremely active in my high school’s alumni community: http://bit.ly/5fu7P3
@bklein34 not that I know of so far. Now booking Hyderabad, St. Petersburg, and Beijing!
considering another epically insane trip. Anyone been on the Trans-Siberian? Recently?
okay, okay, I’ll fly. But not Aeroflot.
@johnnysunshine Nice when you have unlimited time, but that’s not my case.
@bicyclemark when in April? I would leave St Petersburg ~Apr 15, need to be in Beijing ~23rd
Today required chocolate, but I had foolishly left it in the hotel room.
Fog outside caltrain windows as we rocket down the peninsula. This train is expensive, but it’s clean, comfortable, and on time. I can deal.
@deirdresm not to worry, I’ll likely be back soon!
@ThinGuy pleasingly fast.
planning my next savage odyssey, includes two new airlines (Finnair and Air China). Anyone have anything to say about those?
Trip sketched out, I’ll have to tweak dates & book tomorrow.won’t be hard to fill 10 days in India. May be almost 3 wks in Beijing – wher!
Okay, so at the end of two weeks almost solid of early starts, I slept in. I don’t feel guilty.
@jmleray ma l’immagine Giapponese a fondo dell’articolo cosa c’entra? Mah.
@jmleray io in fondo dell’articolo vedevo una piccola immagine erotica giapponese (di quelle antiche). Forse l’ho immaginato. 😉
got so much to do I don’t even know where to start. Coffee, please start working!
another epic trip booked: 6 weeks on the road to Hyderabad, St Petersburg, and Beijing, bringing back tons of new content in multiple langs
did I mention I have a very cool job? (Actually, I have about 3 jobs… pay is not commensurate, but the perks are awesome.)
now downloadable: ZFS Discovery Day: Understanding the Technology – Sun Video http://bit.ly/8pgUlo

RT @pancrazioauteri: In Italy, if you sell PVR with integrated HD, you ==pay EUR 28.98 / 250GB capacity. Money will go to copyright holders!
SF hosting a math congress, mathematicians in nametags all over. Saw one named Hilbert. Probably not a descendant.
Forgot til this moment that @Rohrer should be on the same flight back to DEN. But she’ll arrive way later to sfo than I did.
Got here way too early but this gives me time to enjoy my sfo ritual: dim sum and beer
Not going to NM this wkd after all, prob a good thing. I should probably sleep for 3 days…
@KathySierra this is only a problem for parents who wish to pretend that, unlike themselves, their children have no vices.
@missbhavens you never asked. And we’re all expected to conspire in maintaining the rosy delusion.
Argh. I know this guy who just boarded and don’t remember why I know him or who he is. I need a face recognition upgrade
@bklein34 seems like these things always devolve upon the parents
The little girl seated next to me who thrashed chattered and sang thru the flight… No doubt many wd find her cute…
@missbhavens that’s okay, no one would have told you
Maybe govt shd get out of marriage altogether. Make a contractual commitment 2 raise any kids, leave it at that…
…because human relationships are way too complex to legislate.
@msgilligan many legislators and voters want life dumbed down for them. I learned long ago that it’s very hard not to fit in the checkboxes
I would like a way to see a family tree of who else my followers follow. Might give me a clue as to why they’re following me.
CO Girl Geeks will be mentioned in the Denver Biz Journal in Feb. @creepyed must now help me organize an event, bcuz it’s all her fault!
RT @dboyll: Italy wants to regulate online video content; Google says it’s a bad idea http://ff.im/-eouBS – it’s a horrible idea
a good way to wake up: slowly, in my own bed, with coffee, a laptop, and good wifi.
I may actually be home in CO for a month now. Then again, I may not.

Next CO Girl Geeks dinner will be Feb 17 Wednesday in Broomfield. Check FB group later for details.
@adamsbaldwin Ah, yes, Paul – that misogynist, anti-sexual son of a bitch has a lot to answer for. Christianity cd have been fun but for him
@adamsbaldwin Nope, learned about Paul in religion classes in the missionary high school I attended. Then I thought for myself.
@adamsbaldwin I have been a mother for 20 years.
@adamsbaldwin as far as I recall, Paul wasn’t all that enthusiastic about marriage, simply said it was better than burning.
@adamsbaldwin while I appreciate the kudos, merely being a mother doesn’t make me a hero. I’ve done a decent job of it, but many don’t.
@Zee I have no skin in this game, but are Technorati’s rankings still believable?
@Zee last time I looked (been a while), blogs had to be enrolled to be counted so, like Alexa, the rankings were skewed. I cd be out of date
@Zee but what proportion of bloggers do pay attention? Is it just us social media geeks? We don’t count as much as we think we do.
Italy wd become only Western country in which it is necessary to have prior government permission to upload video. http://bit.ly/5SBtid

@missrogue #femanomics – umm, there’s me. Been doing online marketing since ~1992. By my definition. http://bit.ly/V9OUa
@missrogue just haven’t been very good at marketing myself. Maybe that’s the big difference between male and female online gurus #femanomics
@missrogue don’t forget @lskrocki , queen of all our social media platforms at Sun.
is it my imagination or is bit.ly dropping a lot of link stats?
@lskrocki uh, no. I don’t see that as you. But you could go with a plain leather color. I like my red Coach bag

How Do You Measure Snow?

We’re having a big snowstorm in Colorado today, so I have been discussing with some local colleagues on Twitter how to measure accumulations. I haven’t lived around snow much (til I moved to Colorado last year), so I haven’t done this much before. @vdotw advised “Measure [with a ruler] at a flat spot, like an Read More…

We’re having a big snowstorm in Colorado today, so I have been discussing with some local colleagues on Twitter how to measure accumulations. I haven’t lived around snow much (til I moved to Colorado last year), so I haven’t done this much before.

@vdotw advised “Measure [with a ruler] at a flat spot, like an outside table.”

Well, okay, we have lots of outside tables at Sun’s Broomfield campus, but they all seem to have accumulated different amounts of snow:

IMG_8989

This one (shown at far left in the photo above) had about 5 inches:

IMG_8990

This one looked more promising:

IMG_8991

And, in fact:

IMG_8992

Thirteen inches! (That’s a fourteen-inch ruler.)

So what am I supposed to do here? Take an average?
