http doesn't push, requires tcp/ip and the text comes in an envelope that "means" the same thing to every device--render me in your browser. Tweets have none of those limitations.
Perhaps I am over-stating it, but that's a risk I am willing to accept.
Don't confuse the technology with the users.
Twitter is a cross-platform, cross-technology way to push 140 characters somewhere wrapped in XML. That is going to be useful.
That's a good point, and that's why I don't use either service as a "cloud" repository for my images. I am just beginning to appreciate the wonders of twitter and I can see all kinds of potential there.
Next year I might be talking about having left facebook for twitter.
Wow, it's been two years since I abandoned this platform for Internet publishing.
I notice that I am currently moving from Multiply to Facebook, but I honestly don't know how quickly and/or completely I am going to migrate. Ultimately, I see this will all become one big XML matrix and it won't matter, everything will be possible everywhere, and be visible to everyone else, and you'll be able to drive using Twitter.
I am about to become the manager of the help-desk for a company with about 200 users. I want to implement help-desk management software from day 1, and I want to keep it open-source and free (as in speech). I have a LAMP (Linux/Apache/MySQL/PHP5) server available to me (Debian etch stable). Any recommendations?
I experienced the most hideously reprehensible episode of personal and professional disrespent I have ever been through at work today. I mean since I was 14 years old and working on a camper shell assembly line no employer has ever stooped this low. I received more professional courtesy as a delivery driver at Domino's.
Joke attribtued to Rich Little via the New Yorker, cf.
Bill Clinton and his pal George Bush senior were sitting around, and Clinton says "George, have you ever tried Viagra?'
"I can't say," George H. W. Bush answers. "I don't even know what the hell it is."
"Mr. President," Clinton says, "it gives you great staying power."
The objects of my desires will never satisfy my desires.
Having sex will not end the desire to have sex.
Food does not extinguish hunger, it always returns.
Is one ever pretty enough, smart enough, or strong enough to extingush the desire to be pretty, smart and strong?
Yet isn't the extinguishment of desire what compels and attaches us to our objects of desire?
We seek those objects as sacrificial offerings to our desires.
Thanks for the effort. Another uninstall/reinstall didn't help. A reset didn't help.
I have not yet done the erase and re-install but it might still be necessary.
Guess what? If I log into the iBook with a different user name, it just works.
Yes, get your jaw back up off the floor. It is something in my user account that is causing the problem.
Many thanks to an applecare phone support tech for that suggestion.
First, I have a recent backup.
This summer, I bought a new iPod for a friend as a birthday present -- the U2 video model. I used my iBook to initalize it for her and transfer her music library to it, using an account I created for this purpose, not my account.
Then, iTunes 7 comes out, I install, and it immediately tells me I need to do the iPod updater. I do this.
Scene: CNN's Situation Room, 12/28/2006 - Transcript.
Players: Ed Henry, CNN Whitehouse Correspondent - Fran Townsend, Homeland Security Advisor
HENRY: You know, going back to September 2001, the president said, dead or alive, we're going to get him. Still don't have him. I know you are saying there's successes on the war on terror, and there have been. That's a failure.
Steak Florentine does not involve spinach.
This was among the most impressive of dishes I discovered in Tuscany last fall. Everything and nothing about this dish is about the region itself. Classically it involves a special cut of beef, analogous to the American porterhouse, dry-aged, from a special breed of cattle, the Chianina, prepared as one should prepare a $25-$50 piece of meat, skillfully and carefully.
