This place is not a place of honor… no highly esteemed deed is commemorated here.
Beaten by IT policy. Have learned complex IT set password while repeatedly being refused the change to something simpler.
Real world usability failure: caffeine free diet coke looks too much like real diet coke.
Relax, it's much worse than you think.
State of the Linux media center art: dismal. :(

Were I asked in the 90s to pick an artist I liked who'd go on to make astonishingly great film scores,I wouldn't have picked Clint from PWEI
rt @pip - etherpad bought by google and shut down. ffs! >:( etherpad.com/ep/blog/posts/google-acquires-appjet via @iamdanw
Oh last.fm, please stop recommending CUD and New Fast Automatic Daffodils. I didn't like them in 1990 and I don't like them now.
They should have kept etherpad and closed down wave :(
Evening competitions = grouchy little skaters. Make that grouchy little winners!

If you detect my iPhone and then present me with a "mobile" version of your site that can't be read, you're doing it wrong.
Enduring potty training regression: rivers of piss everywhere.
Impressed with Mac Chrome UI. Decent top of window tabs. Combined url/search. Safari team should look sheepish. FF team should hide in shame
Where's my toothbrush? Oh look! There, in the potty. Marvelous.
Morgan Freeman makes great Mandella. That wasn't predictable now was it?http://www.metacritic.com/film/titles/invictus
Linux Chrome: so much better than Firefox, it's not even funny.
Why do mobile blog templates attempt to look like iPhone applications? They're still web pages. Readability, good. Grey bubbles, bad.
Top posted replying is clearly the only sane choice. New information is presented first. Blogs understand this: reverse chronology FTW.
Most poignant Garfield - Garfield ever: is.gd/5i4XF
Christmas is a time for sharing... misery, Garfield minus Garfield the book.
.@lastfm Why don't you have a "this is not the right damn song" option? :) www.last.fm/music/Joy+Division/_/New+Dawn+Fades?autostart
Watch the video for New Dawn Fades from Joy Division's The Best Of for free, and see the artwork, lyrics and similar artists.
.@Twitter Why can't I have a per tweet "friends only" check box? Why is it all or nothing? :(
Facebooks default "privacy" is to allow all your dumbass mates to share all of *your* information with the apps *they* install. Facepalm.
How come half of all the Coke I buy (bottle or fountain) tastes like battery acid? Most inconsistent drink ever. Pepsi only slightly better.
It never rains but it pours and similar vapid clichés.
Why can't mobile safari browse my photos and upload them? Seems so obvious.
I wonder if the pundits that @gruber regularly eviscerates ever bother to issue rebuttals? is.gd/5mahu
Regarding Randall Stross’s piece in The New York Times claiming the problem isn’t AT&T’s network, but rather the iPhone’s hardware.
There is a big problem with the iPhone autocorrect: it is impossible to type the word "time" because the word "tome" is real. I blame Apple.
I don't get it. How is crippling AT&T's network supposed to convince them that metering is bad?

Have just bought insurance on the way to the airport. iPhone's are marvelous things.
Landing in London midday Friday. What's the weather like?
Back from spain. Flew into Leeds Bradford. Very glad I didn't go for the Manchester option!
www.thereisnopagefold.com Bull. If horizontal bands of content line up with bottom of page, it looks complete. Scrollbar is ignored.
Welcome to the world wide web, an interactive medium in which screen resolution statistics are trivial, browser viewports are variable, and scrolling behaviour is a standard.
Continuing www.thereisnopagefold.com rage. What about data entry screens where save button is out of sight? Instant annoyance.
Since we've no place to go ...
Need razr battery. 1 day standby, 1 minute talk time not cutting it.
Pro Tip: Don't make glib tweets about letting it snow before embarking on long trips through blizzards.
Merry Christmas. I am eagerly awaiting dinner. For reference I am the only one that likes these:
I appear to have spent $800 on petrol this month. Over half of it since I left the country. Impressive.
Impressed: skype out calls US toll free numbers toll free, without you having to have ever put credit on it.
