Saturday morning MLP

Posted by joy


A few observations for a beautiful Saturday morning.

-Treat your Starbucks Barista well and you will be paid back handsomely. I probably go to the Starbucks near me at least once a week (often enough to notice when a longtime barista has added highlights to her hair), mostly on the way to work in the morning. I’ve gotten into the habit of being polite and tipping the loose change I get from a Triple Grande Vanilla Latte. Every so often, I get an upgrade of an extra shot or a larger size. Or, even better, getting my drink faster than the lady in front of me who was whining about her Venti Soy No-whip Caramel Macchiatto.

-I’m now Skype capable thanks to people I know who are using it. The only reason why I’m using it is because it’s free, because I’ve been unimpressed with the user interface (at least on the Mac OS X client). I also procured the Logitech USB Headset 250 to use with Skype which was ok, but I will most likely upgrade to something else of better quality.

-I thought that this guy had a very insightful comment in the Slashdot thread discussing why Microsoft can’t make an iPod killer.

-New RSS reader in my logs: Great News 1.0.

-I’m amused that my most highly trafficked blog tags have something to do with Death Cab for Cutie. If I tag for them, invariably I see visitors from the Seattle area.

Ok kids, that’s about enough for now. Today I’m going to be immersed in some hot Philly area blog culture action. I’ll tell you about it later. ;-)

    I hope the meetup was hot enough for you.

    Hmm, that didn’t come out quite right.

    Hi there,

    I’ve just read your post about Skype, I’m using Linux and Skype is really bad, this company totally neglects Linux and Mac users: version 2.5 for windows, version 1.4.0.49 for Mac OS X, and version 1.2.0.18 for Linux (Release date: October 25, 2005)…
    I’ve just discovered a new Open Source alternative (Skype is prorio…) http://www.wengo.org/
    Have a nice day,
    ++ Emil
