  • Google Earth Car spotted on Queen K at North/South Kona border… #
  • Hope new credit card law means that I get MORE incomprehensible pamphlets with important updates about my agreement. Fingers crossed. #
  • Haven’t even dl’ed the demo, but suspect the next time I’m doing hard JavaScript code, I’ll use JetBrains WebIDE http://bit.ly/hyE5q #
  • (Assuming that d/l counter, while fake, is calibrated to Apple’s expectations…) #

  • HD makes such a difference for watching hockey… <2 minutes left in US vs. SUI #
  • USA vs SUI was good hockey game. I prefer Olympic-sized rink, though. I think hockey benefits from more room relative to player sizes… #
  • A Johnny Cash song was the 10,000,000,000th song sold on iTunes. Nice. #
  • I just coded “System.Console.WriteLine(“#{t},#{pt}”); Sadly, it #
  • Sadly, it’s a C# program, not Ruby. #
