Monday 13:27 · @vambenepe That notion gives me severe pain at an intuitive level. Maybe publish use cases? [Original, responding to @vambenepe.]

Monday 14:36 · Hey @gruber, do please summarize your SSD findings for the rest of us. [Original.]

Monday 19:16 · @doriantaylor Weirdly, I also pretty well torched a wok this evening. Fortunately a cheap old one. [Original, responding to @doriantaylor.]

Wednesday 09:36 · @binary42 Awwww. And with luck, some more actual technology-related posts in the near future. [Original, responding to @binary42.]

Wednesday 16:59 · Remember, Canada: no lead is safe if Bobby Lu has One Of Those Days [Original.]

Friday 22:21 · @kk Lou Reed wrote a song about that called "Work". It's good. [Original, responding to @kk.]

Saturday 11:46 · This is going to require lots of infrastructure maintenance: Blog, Facebook, LinkedIn, etc etc... [Original.]

Saturday 15:07 · Aaaaand it's Canada vs. THE PANTS. [Original.]

Sunday 12:39 · The streets of Vancouver are empty, silent. [Original.]

Sunday 12:40 · Lauren invited her knitting coven over to watch the game. I've never watched hockey with five women before. [Original.]

Sunday 14:23 · Who's number 11 for Canada? The guy's forechecking like a god. [Original.]

Sunday 15:02 · @br3nda There've been some really chunky goalies. But flexible & fast seem to win. [Original, responding to @br3nda.]
