@darb: we're dealing with servlets, jboss, eventlets, FEI and Java up here. Bite that.

Fools! I will destroy you all!
I think it's home time.
@darb: it is not
googledocs, you sexy little beast
@rafiq: gonna do the next one with your eyes closed?
My mind is drawn back to the sort of person who phones you to tell you that they emailed you
@darb: you think that was Friday, do you?
@zoopedup: (re: reddit.com)
@zoopedup: that's a yes
@TylerReed: You've used drupal?
What if my name is ¿D'Købœjö?
yeah, twitter's jabber command interface didn't have much thought put into it
@darb: about time

@pierrenel: I miss your gf too
@unodewaal: +/- 5am
@pierrenel: wtf, they didn't recognise your Australian accent?
friends with benefits of the doubt
@rafiq: you use the internet! And Google invented the internet!
(disclaimer: I don't use even half of the above services, I'm just trying to list them. @rafiq wins!)
(books and finance cut off the first list)
youtube, documents, patent search, toolbar, picasa, orkut, gtalk, google code, iGoogle, alerts
Web search, image search, desktop search, maps, news, shopping, gmail, photos, calendar, video, groups, blog search, reader, blogger, bo ...
Dear Google, I notice you don't control ALL of my life just yet. Attached below is another piece of my soul. Please look after it.

@zoopedup: all I know is it was "interesting" ;-) I think there's a brief writeup on the blog
@chmac: it strikes us that March 24th is a Monday (and a public holiday). Unless you're talking about 2009?
@pierrenel: you appear to have iTunes confused with some other music app that lets you do stuff your way, not Steve Jobs's way
Thank you for holding. All of our service consultants are still busy. Please be patient: your call will be answered as soon as a servic ...
@unodewaal: installed a test site to see what it's like, but waiting for the modules to be ported before upgrading
Can't sleep... Thetans will eat me...
@zoopedup: *shrug* just my point of view: I find it irritating, your intended audience might too.
@zoopedup: I don't see the difference between spamming twitter with RSS and spamming email with it
@zoopedup: by your argument, you should be emailing everybody in your address book, in case they didn't see your blog before
@zoopedup: it's called irritating, actually.
@zoopedup: why would you do that? if people want to follow your blog, they'll subscribe to the RSS feed
there's no party like a bran van party

@IrcMaidon: which news?
@TylerReed: oh I see, sorry, yes :)
you're asking people to vote as favour to you. I see no "my blog rocks, so vote for it". (not saying your blogs don't rock.)
@TylerReed: how was that a generalisation?
so, what you people are all saying is, the SABlogAwards is about who has the most friends, not who has the best blog?
it's not a real stomach bug until you're squirting from both ends
@chmac: "braai", not "braii", but ten points for making the effort ;-)
@rafiq: I was right behind you till you zoomed off into the distance ;-)
@rafiq: do you drive a blue citi golf along the M5 towards the N1?
You're all crazy, and you're trying to steal my magic bag!
@cluckhoff: I saw somebody looking just like you, driving on the M5, eating cereal with one hand. wasn't you, though. ... was it?
that horrible sinking feeling in the back of your throat when you realise that you don't have a cheese grater...
lawks, look at the time. To the kitchen, Robin!

@jacques: your syntax is wrong, and your backticks are redundant
@TylerReed: from my experience, up at ABSA, they're all high
@pierrenel: *loud applause*
and space music has no popularity
(which, incidentally, is why Object Relational Mapping is still the first hit for google ORM. Because it's a useful meaning.)
waiting for the day when marketers realise that having a good product works better than anything they can actually do to "promote" it
@rafiq: it doesn't agree with "online reputation management" either
come on, you're the SEO people. http://www.google.com/se...
ORM is *still* Object Relational Mapping
@rafiq: yes, that's the point.
The average person thinks he isn't.
Bust a move
@pierrenel: we already have wormux...
@pierrenel: bringing money in, are they? *cough*
@altersage: I'm tired after 24hours, and Bar One promises to make me feel like I've had a 25hour day?
@altersage: I've always thought that's a dumb advert
the trick is to keep breathing
@chmac: I feel that's unfair - you're not taking the other side's wins of the past decade into account
@cluckhoff: Hair O' Dog!
@cluckhoff: glad you finally made it ;-)
