Tweets for Today

Automatically shipped by LoudTwitter

UPDATE: Seriously, what the hell is this?  I have no idea.  There must have been a box that I checked somewhere a couple of months ago, I’ve never seen this before.  Now if I could only find out how to either:

*use it
*un-check it

Any 21st-century people of the future out there?

Also: iChat — my new laptop seems to think it’s something everyone uses all the time.  WTF?

  3. Soon every twitch on your EEG will be measured, recorded, and cataloged as if it were massively important.

    I feel dizzy …

    I just registered the “Ted_Slaughter” account on twitter, and looked up how much sidekicks cost.

    Apple’s thinking is if they pretend to dominate the world, everyone will eventually come to believe it.

    Unless you’re doing a lot of AV conferencing, Adium is a much more robust and useful chat client for OS X.

      I’ve got no friggin’ idea — I apparently set up an account through Loudtwitter, which provides no way to disconnect the goddamn thing.

        I’m looking forward to hear what you have to say about the ending and whether you think it was satisfactory.

        Every time I see this film I forget I’m watching one – until the “climax”. Though apparently loyal to the original story, it feels more like the ending of a traditional Act II, and I couldn’t believe when I first saw the film that it ends there. I actually felt betrayed, because I had enjoyed it so much, invested so much in the characters.

        I always imagine the filmmaker thinking: “Aah shit, we have only 10 minutes screen time left, we have to wrap this thing up, aagh, well let’s scrap that last act and just have the invaders die of umm, anything! The protagonist saving the day is quite a cliché anyway isn’t it?”

        Jurassic Park has that same deus-ex-machina feeling to it with the T-Rex coming to rescue. And I think that sucks too. I can’t relate to the T-Rex, or the bacteria, I relate to the people I’ve hoped for the entire duration of the film to grow up and save the day.

        Is it just me?

        sure it wasn’t like annother personality or your evil twin that set it up?

    Twitter? Remember that scene in “Independence Day”, Jeff Goldblum and Will Smith, Jeff pushes one key on his mac keyboard and sends up the demon virus that will proceed to wreak havoc with the system of the whole alien mothership? It’s sort of like that I think.
