  • Also, if you give an award for oratorical skills, let the recipient speak. #fb #
  • Pro tip: if you're giving a commencement speech, don't continually relate 4 years of college to the "Lost" series. #fb #

  • Enjoying the view of my grandfather's machines while waiting to go on our tour at Howe Caverns http://twitpic.com/1ruroy #fb #
  • Of course, was unable to buy tickets from the iPad, glad I brought the laptop with us. Frustrating, because I really like the iPad. #fb #
  • Just bought tickets for the whole family to go see Arlo Guthrie in Boston. Such an entertainer. I think the kids will really love it. #fb #
  • Maybe this is something Barry and the kids could have considered putting into the "healthcare reform" bill. #ScheduleOfFeesWorksForMe #
  • Yes, I'm on a rant today. But let's face it, you'd rather read this than me venting about my lying neighbor and the couch. #
  • Related: Why in the world do most people treat health insurance like cash? We don't do that with auto or home insurance. #
  • Why don't hospitals and clinics have a policy of telling you in advance the price for the services they're about to perform? #
  • Nice. Since I got the iPad my wife's been using my Kindle. No worries, though, I still get email order confirmations for books. ;) #
  • My daughter's newest gadget. http://twitpic.com/1re7jh #fb #
  • I can forgive a lot of stuff, but broken commitments ain't on that list. They get me every time. Consider it a character flaw. ;-) #
  • "Any man who afflicts the human race with ideas must be prepared to see them misunderstood." --H.L. Mencken #fb #
  • I think one of my 3G MicroCells doesn't work despite its lusciously green status lights. I gotta stop living on the bleeding edge. #fb #
  • It's really exhausting being point-man troubleshooting Comcast's problems, but at least we're making progress. Soon... soon it'll be over. #
  • Mac Geek Gab 263 is about to be live (with me, @johnfbraun, & @pilotpete) http://bit.ly/dlXdBi #

  • Mac Geek Gab #263 preshow is live on USTREAM http://bit.ly/c5Y08Y #

    Love it! :-) #

  • "I don't believe in a lot of things, but I believe in duct tape." #Lost #
