Week ending Sunday 2010/07/11

Monday 23:22 · @loic The question is, which person would show up on the most lists. I have some guesses... [Original, responding to @loic.]

Tuesday 08:36 · Hmf. Twidroid & Tweetie both saying "rate limit exceeded" but Web access to twitter working fine?! [Original.]

Tuesday 13:42 · @nelson I'm generally lukewarm about Adobe stuff, but am pretty addicted to Lightroom; 10k pix in it. No "save" button is a good symptom. [Original, responding to @nelson.]

Tuesday 14:48 · @nelson No "save" is a *good* thing. Lr never touches the RAW file that comes out of the camera, just writes diff files as you go along. [Original, responding to @nelson.]

Tuesday 14:49 · Hah, the *Web* is just a prototype. But of what? [Original.]

Tuesday 15:13 · @nelson Well, you still have your RAW digital "negatives". I care a lot about saving those. [Original, responding to @nelson.]

Tuesday 19:25 · @nelson In SqLite databases ~/Pictures/Lightroom, and you can... WTF, "export XMP" is gone in Lr3?! Where is it?! [Original, responding to @nelson.]

Tuesday 19:30 · Didn't Lightroom used to have "Metadata>XMP>Export XMP"? Relatedly, adobe.com/products/photoshoplightroom/faq/ seems broken. [Original.]

Tuesday 19:37 · I just use Cmd-S to save the metadata. It writes the .xmp next to the raw file. (via @hfiguiere) [Tim: D'oh] [Original.]

Tuesday 19:38 · Amazed and appalled by the mountainous cluelessness of The Economist's piece on "Cyberwarfare" [Original.]

Tuesday 23:44 · I have 8 phone numbers, one in Clatskanie, OR: www.tbray.org/ongoing/When/201x/2010/07/06/Clatskanie [Original.]

Wednesday 07:39 · Google Docs and OpenOffice and MS Office and every other damn tool: Please by default never waste screen space on "rulers". [Original.]

Wednesday 17:07 · Hey, @Maureen's now *officially* a fine poet. (via @blaine) [Original.]

Thursday 08:58 · Virtual instruction sets: Opcode arguments: codingrelic.geekhold.com/2010/07/virtual-instruction-sets-opcode.html You'll know by the title if you're the kind of person who cares. [Original.]

Thursday 13:38 · A little app in Msft APL, Silverlight, WinMo, and Android. Useful for 'softies wondering about Android: blogs.msdn.com/b/jgalasyn/archive/2010/07/07/modern-programming-a-tale-of-four-frameworks.aspx [Original.]

Thursday 13:49 · @anildash Agree 100%. That one clearly aimed at 'softies. [Original, responding to @anildash.]

Thursday 14:18 · @gnat I really hope their take on that kind of thing is smarter than when they venture onto my turf; e.g. recent "Cyberwar" silliness [Original, responding to @gnat.]

Thursday 15:25 · Did you call them autocrap tools? varnish-cache.org/docs/phk/autocrap/ No, I prefer GNU AutoHell myself. [Original.]

Thursday 23:36 · On the turntable: Jarret's Köln Concert. Soul, virtuosity and some damn fine ECM vinyl from back in the day. [Original.]

Thursday 23:58 · Admiring the graphical excellence in today's Doonesbury: www.doonesbury.com/strip/dailydose/index.html?uc_full_date=20100709 [Original.]

Friday 08:35 · China renewed Google's ICP license: googleblog.blogspot.com/2010/06/update-on-china.html [Original.]

Friday 08:38 · @yukihiro_matz Should not be hard to get CRuby running on Android. But I think a lot of work to build bridge to Android SDK. [Original, responding to @yukihiro_matz.]

Friday 08:39 · No, @jamescarr, the Insane Clown Posse license is a different ministry. [Original, responding to @jamescarr.]

Friday 11:16 · @duncan Is it a function of whether you're on wifi or 3G? [Original, responding to @duncan.]

Friday 11:22 · @duncan The apps just open an IP connection and push bytes. Could be 3G operator doing something retarded. Or maybe your phone is hosed :( [Original, responding to @duncan.]

Friday 23:04 · Crap, Zero History is 9/7, not 7/9. Or the other way round. Anyhow, couple more months. [Original.]

Saturday 01:11 · D&D is *dangerous*! www.chick.com/reading/tracts/0046/0046_01.asp [Original.]

Saturday 21:04 · Amusing comment on what I thought were simple Lightroom 3 remarks: www.tbray.org/ongoing/When/201x/2010/07/09/Lightroom-3#comments It's getting weird out there. [Original.]

Saturday 21:05 · "oh no, the conference is next week, and i really have to get the talks prepared and practiced" #OSCON (via @rabble) [Original.]

Saturday 21:20 · Odds: "Spain (-175), Netherlands (+164), regulation time draw (+236); Over/under (2)" Huh? Can someone explain to a n00b? [Original.]

Sunday 10:47 · Got a few folks coming by for the big show; managed to lay in a couple each Dutch and Spanish (!?) beers. [Original.]
