I haven't used it,but I think Jared Sinclair's Stormcrow app is intended to build a tweetstorm from z bigger chunk of text, so it would be reasonably easy to use either before or after writing the blog post, if that's what you're doing. There's clearly a difference between text and tweetstorm, though, and, like @nitin, i would prefer to promote something I had written with selected tweets.

Checked into Ciampino - Stazione FS/Viale Rizzo

Hours early, but that's cool.

This anguishing about comments has been going a good long while. Fun to uncover this one.

All packed and ready for trip that culminates at , hoping that cheap Irish airline doesn't notice the weight of my handbag.

Must we copy everything?

1 min read

I dunno. I see this Add a "tweetstorm" UI for chaining status updates with chained POSSE tweets and I think of something I wrote a while back: Or you could write a blog post. Does the really need to make indie copies of everything the silos offer? Even the workarounds?

Maybe I misunderstand, and a feature like this is what weans people off the silo pap. All I know is, I don't think it would work for me.

How to fix stuck Mac OS X clipboard – won’t copy/paste anything new

I thought I was losing my mind, but this fixed it, and restored me to sanity ... once I remembered to quit and restart the application I was writing in.

Wouldn't it be cool if micro.blog had whatever it takes to work with Launch Centre under iOS?

I'm sure I wrote this yesterday, but it seems to have vanished without trace.

Rockin' my imposter status

1 min read

Finished the first phase of moving two WordPress driven sites from one hosting service to another this morning. I was a bit wary, having read all the things that can go wrong, and I took a few wrong turns into dead ends. But I managed to back out and didn't screw up too badly on the first one. The screwing up I did accomplish was mainly the result of my impatience, doing things in quick succession when I should have given them time to settle down in between. But I learned my lessons, and this morning's transfer went much more smoothly. Scarily so, in fact.

There's plenty left to do, moving various ancillary things, all part of an ongoing effort to tidy up in general, but I don't foresee any more difficulties, touch wood.

And in case anyone cares, I couldn't have done it nearly as easily without the Duplicator plugin for WordPress, which truly is a life saver.

The tools change, the job remains the same

1 min read

Funny, as I continue slowly to bring old posts in, to see what I wrote about my tools, in 2007 and then again in 2013.

The conclusion remains as it ever was; although the tools change, the jobs they need to do remain more or less the same. Find things and write about them.
