Monday 1:19 · It's a Beautiful Day: www.tbray.org/ongoing/When/200x/2009/04/06/Its-a-Beautiful-Day [Original.]

Monday 9:39 · Deep, intense discourse on queuing-system theory and practice, mostly in the comments: unlimitednovelty.com/2009/04/twitter-blaming-ruby-for-their-mistakes.html [Original.]

Tuesday 16:42 · Simon Phipps now on Sun's board, says BizWeek: investing.businessweek.com/research/stocks/people/board.asp?ric=JAVA.O - Gotta love the reliability & accuracy of traditional media. [Original.]

Wednesday 13:00 · @bramcohen is in da house. [Original, responding to @bramcohen.]

Wednesday 17:17 · Why HATEOAS? blogs.sun.com/craigmcc/entry/why_hateoas [Original.]

Wednesday 17:17 · Does anyone go to Second Life any more, or is that definitively over? [Original.]

Wednesday 21:48 · @distobj Here's the thing: They're all good. Consider getting a Panasonic G1 instead; almost all the benefits, cheaper and smaller. [Original, responding to @distobj.]

Wednesday 21:56 · I never spam-brand the emails advertising apartment rentals in Ulanbaatar (Mongolia). They're too enjoyably weird. [Original.]

Thursday 11:25 · Just accidentally had a ½hr shower thinking through a clever (I hope) unit-testing approach. Software development carbon footprint... [Original.]

Thursday 11:34 · @cyprien Big fan of botanical garden says: "Hi" [Original, responding to @cyprien.]

Thursday 17:18 · Don't think Nambu will replace Twitterrific for me just yet; like to see people's real names, and also the sleek dark look. [Original.]

Thursday 22:04 · @ftrain "$40,000,000" is two words. Tsk tsk. [Original, responding to @ftrain.]

Thursday 22:16 · We'll try Syrinx for a while... Twitterrific may have been replaced. [Original.]

Thursday 22:19 · People who don't do this for a living will never know how good hitting the "commit" button feels. [Original.]

Thursday 23:26 · @kevinmarks Tragic that so few people know about Lieber. "Our Lady of Darkness" is essential for anyone who cares about San Francisco. [Original, responding to @kevinmarks.]

Friday 0:29 · @gnat Free markets are a tool, free speech is a goal. N'est-ce pas? [Original, responding to @gnat.]

Saturday 0:39 · The theory says it's OK to not write much when I'm actually working really hard on making things, because stories-to-write will emerge. [Original.]

Saturday 8:54 · @climateprogress is in da house - maybe single best source for global-warming coverage. [Original, responding to @climateprogress.]

Saturday 17:26 · @duncan I'm thinking Apache needs mod_shortlink [Original, responding to @duncan.]

Saturday 17:30 · Hm, it'd be trivial to make a rel="short" alternative for everything on tbray.org with a redirect to the right place. [Original.]

Sunday 22:05 · @joshu Everyone sys git is awesome but fairly hard to learn. Googlecode is plain ol' SVN. These days I use kenai.com which has both. [Original, responding to @joshu.]

Sunday 22:57 · I think jruby-rake will be easy to use once I figure out how to use it, which so far I haven't. [Original.]
