Today my craz(ier) Lab, Xena, plunked herself down in the open carry-on suitcase that was in my office. The suitcase is small, and it fit her perfectly.
I figure she was trying to accomplish one of these things:
1. She is looking to relocate.
2. She wants me to share her scent with whatever other Labradors I might meet on my travels.
3. She thought it looked like a good place to nap.
4. She wanted to check for drugs. Especially Excedrin, which she likes to eat.
What do you think?
I just got my new eee pc. We made a special trip into my office just to pick it up. I am off until Wednesday but i decided i could not wait that long for my new toy. So it follows that i defiitely could not wait until August for the new Dell.
I am a little concerned that it could not seem to handle a streaming YouTube video. We’re going to try again now.
The funny thing is that we came to Panera to try out the wireless network. There is a Tweeter Store nearby, and I was on their wireless network. The first site I tried to go to was Twitter. I got this message:
Oh and BTW i did this whole post on my new EEE!
Travel has gone from bad to worse. I think that the problem is that now that people have to pay to check a bag, they carry everything on, which causes delays at security. It’s no surprise that millions of Americans refuse to fly. At least I’m stuck here with a good friend who is making the time fly (even though we’re not!)
I found this post as I discovered “ProBlogger. When you find an interesting blog, it really affirms their influence when you see that 7,000 other people follow them on Twitter. I click “follow” so I don’t have to subscribe to their RSS feed because I never check Google Reader.
ProBlogger created this video about “The Power of Commenting on Other Blogs” that I want all our Corporate bloggers to see : )
How did I find ProBlogger, anyway? With all the various ways to find someone online, it’s getting quite difficult to remember how you find things. I found ProBLogger this morning through Tweetburner. Tweetburner is a “short URL” service that not only lets you shorten an URL and create a redirect, it:
1. Lets you post directly to Twitter within its interface (even if they do need some usability tweaks)
2. Lets you login to your account (which is tied to your Twitter account, so it’s the same login) to track your traffic.
3. Shows you how many people clicked on each link you posted (over all time, does not seem to break it out by past day, month, etc.) But with Twitter, if people don’t see it in the first hour, they’ll probably never see it anyway.
I was checking Tweetburner out of vanity to see how many clicks I got on a few links I posted last night, and ProBlogger had gotten 37 clicks in the past hour on his post about the birth of his new son.
