Depressing as hell, but rings so true. https://twitter.com/kissane/status/628704932615573504

I’ll get right on that. $$???$$

WANT.

That is totally the right move.

Oh my god. I’m speechless.

I seem to recall a lot of auto-erotic asphyxiation on various Law & Order franchises.

I am SO happy!

Hear, hear!

I had my ACs set to 82 before the event to conserve during the day. They’re now set to 86 and it’s awful in here.

I want to do what I can to help but 86 is too high. It trains me to be sure they’re set lower before an event begins!

Heading to LGA for #msudai. Hoping I haven’t forgotten anything crucial.

It will turn out to be something completely random, if my pattern holds.

Once I figure it out, you will be the first to know!

Thanks! See you soon.

Failed to pull my umbrella out of my suitcase. Good planning. #msudai

Thanks for the rescue!

We should talk!

Press testimony: the book did way better than they’d predicted.

It may well have, but the open project produced lots of interest & word of mouth.

The elevator has crashed.

The alarming thing is that right after I took that picture, I arrived at my floor and the doors did not open.

It was not a confidence-inspiring moment.

I’m really hoping.

Yes, happily. It responded to the open door button; just forgot to do it on its own.

I cannot say for sure, but the websites $$both the \.org and the \.us$$ are setting off my warning bells.

Whoa, @electricarchaeo’s Github/markdown/JS based presentation system is SLICK.

Presentation is at http://j.mp/ar-arch; source at http://j.mp/ar-arch-md.

Yup!

Ran late. Locked out. Could somebody meet me at the door? ;) #msudai

I’m in! #msudai

I’m in; all good.

Argh, sorry. Terry got me.

Or do you need to be let in?

One needs to be careful when alerting the internet, apparently!
