@hober: @h3h Native HTML element to do disclosure-triangle-style "click here for more" or "SPOILERS below" sorts of things.
@hober: "Trouble Funk Live: Straight-Up Funk Go-Go Style" is the funkiest thing ever recorded. Superfreak crew now wha'cha gonna do? Drop the bomb!
@hober: I'm doing a quick talk on #node.js tonight at @sdruby. Come on by if you're into that sort of thing!
@hober: @nateritter it's always at 7:30 @ UCSD. Mercifully, you've missed my talk. :) We'll be heading to Rock Bottom by 9 if you'd like to join us!
@hober: @jennyjenjen yup, we'll head over there by 9.

@hober: @krysaia they were indeed excellent. Well done!
@hober: Happy 4th everybody. http://edward.oconnor.cx/2002/03/an-irishmans-epistle
@hober: @nrek no no no. It's M. Night Shamalamadingdong.
@hober: @KuraFire hell yes! That might be the best Star Trek film, and, as we all know, Star Trek is simply "Americans... IN SPACE!!!!"
@hober: Homebrew? Check. BBQ? Check. Fireworks? Check. S'mores? Check. Am I missing anything?
@hober: @miketaylr *shudder*
@hober: I finally ironed out the combination of shell, @emacs, screen, and xterm/iTerm/PuTTY config changes to get 256 colors everywhere.
@hober: Between tajín and maple pepper, is there any reason at all to keep salt and pepper on the dinner table anymore?
@hober: Looking forward to spending my anniversary with @kirinqueen at @thepearlhotel this Saturday!
@hober: Controversy isn't an abstract thing that happens *to* us, it's something that people do, by arguing. Choose not to argue => no controversy!
@hober: San Diego peeps: GRRM is speaking at Mysterious Galaxy tonight.
@hober: Bummed to be missing @barcampsd this weekend, but looking forward to hiding away from the world with @kirinqueen for our anniversary.

@hober: RT @djangosd: If someone could bring a VGA cable to @searocket, we can use their screen & projector! P.S. Sculpin on tap.
@hober: Five years ago today, despite the obvious insanity of the idea, @kirinqueen married me. I win the game.
@hober: @danwho The Nelson's on the right.
@hober: Gee, @ciberch and @n2frizbee sure picked a good day to get married on! :) Congrats to you both!
@hober: @danwho @redthetrucker Yes, but the Stone/Jolly Pumpkin/Nøgne-Ø holiday collaboration is awesome.
@hober: @paolobacigalupi congrats! You deserve it.
@hober: The intersection of entrepreneur and douchebag is surprisingly large. Entrepreneurs who aren't douchebags: this is your market advantage!
@hober: RT @greenideas: It's hard now to be upset about the Yankees winning one last World Series for The Boss. That said, I hope they never win ...

@hober: Great stuff happening in San Diego this weekend: @wherecampsocal at SDSU, the @SpaceEmporium grand opening during the South Park Walkabout…
@hober: When I write about HTML5, http://iwl.me/ thinks I write like Vladimir Nabokov.
@hober: Cheers to @dckc for all of your work making the Web what it is today. #DanFest
@hober: @sogrady hear, hear! You're making me miss @AveryBrewingCo's 16th anniversary saison. Yum.

@hober: @rafuzo welcome! I believe there are beers in our future.
@hober: @rafuzo good call; gotta love @PizzaPortBeer.
@hober: Insert generic San Diego weather WTF tweet here.
@hober: @djcapelis: you've got it backwards: thank the browser vendors for autocomplete="". @WHATWG specced it for interop. See hbr.me/xt0tL
@hober: @djcapelis: http://hbr.me/xt0tL even.
@hober: Great turnout for the inaugural @WhereCampSoCal! Congrats to @ortelius et al.
@hober: Time for @ToddHuffman's @WhereCampSoCal keynote.

@hober: RT @kirinqueen: insulin pump "motor error". tried to call Medtronic support, was put on indefinite hold. really???!!?
@hober: Pro Tip: if you manufacture medical devices, your tech support line better answer fucking chop chop, 'cause this shit is serious. PS suck it
@hober: @jauricchio awwwwh, thanks. Meanwhile, we continue calling. Might try to fill a really old Lantus 'scrip if this continues. #betes

@hober: Rocking my new @SpaceEmporium "space is the new black" snowclone T-shirt.
@hober: @e_ramirez 7/23 is the proposal deadline; @ignitesandiego is on 8/3.
@hober: If you see error 80020101 in IE 7, you probably have HTML-style comments in some JS code you're trying to eval().

@hober: RT @loganb: In code and in law, I have an ever-growing appreciation for precedent.
@hober: @jcroft though, to be fair, Ben was from Boston. Saying he's Philly is like saying Will Smith is LA.
@hober: RT @BenWard: “It's a warzone out there, Ian, with all these memes.” — On fighting ice with spice.
@hober: Caught @kirinqueen learning about HTML5 from @adactio's new book: http://flic.kr/p/8k8gT1
@hober: With @kirinqueen and @LindsayDayton at a concert in LA, @paulhutch1977 and I are hitting the Drink About. @searocket at 7. See you there?
@hober: Installing apps and configuring bits and pieces on yt, my new @zareason Terra HD netbook. This little machine is quite awesome.
@hober: @enkrates it shipped with Ubuntu 10.04.
@hober: @Madrox come to w00tstock, assuming there are still tickets available.
@hober: Really enjoying #w00tstock thus far.
@hober: RT @mariancall: I am pleased to announce a free all-ages San Diego show tomorrow night, 7:30-9pm, at the Space Travelers Emporium. Twitt ...

@hober: San Diego peeps: the @ignitesandiego talk submission cutoff is midnight tonight!
@hober: If you're going to the @SpaceEmporium to see @mariancall tonight, I *highly* recommend grabbing food from @MIHOgastrotruck beforehand.
@hober: Re: my last tweet, @MIHOgastrotruck will be outside @whistlestopbar, just up the street from the @SpaceEmporium.
@hober: @Wordridden happy birthday!
@hober: @hopcentric indeed.
@hober: At the @SpaceEmporium, where @mariancall's show is about to start. So exciting!
@hober: Post-@mariancall tasty adult beverages with @kirinqueen. (@ El Camino) http://4sq.com/6YbfMK
@hober: @mariancall the concert was awesome because of the two of you. The rest of us just lucked out to be there for it!
@hober: @cameo, do you think @HMSBeekeeper could host @mariancall for a small concert on 7/31?
@hober: Today will be my first time at @Comic_Con ever. I know, I know, I'm a geek, I've lived in San Diego for a decade. How is that possible?
@hober: @SaraD you could come to @ignitesandiego!
@hober: @2bithacker you appear to have excellent taste in pubs (@stoutsd) and in operating systems. :)
@hober: Taking a break from #sdcc at @stoutsd with @kirinqueen.
@hober: So what window manager are the kids using these days? Should I bother dusting off my old Ion config, or should I start fresh with $WM?
@hober: Enjoying a new British-style rye bitter from Craftsman while abusing the free wireless at @hamiltons.
@hober: @mojombo: you have to define a *very, very restricted* subset of TeX that you'll accept. This is what we did on Wikipedia.
@hober: @lukemysse: Indeed I do. @kirinqueen and I will go to @HavenGastropub with you next time we're in Orange County!
@hober: Making the @ignitesandieo talk decisions with the other planners. You guys made this *hard*; well done.
@hober: RT @IgniteSanDiego: Ignite talks are up now! Check 'em out: http://ignitesandiego.org/talks
@hober: Trying out F.lux on my netbook. HT @sogrady

@hober: If you're coming to @ignitesandiego next week, I *highly* recommend coming hungry.
@hober: Heading to the LA @ SD game with @kirinqueen. She's all kitted out in blue.
@hober: Since @kirinqueen's phone is temporarily out of commission, she would like the Dodgers to know that this is unacceptable. Get it together.
@hober: Listening to @Kinsee talk about @ignitesandiego on @KPBSTheseDays. Rad.
@hober: Happy Sysadmin day to the relevant subset of my peeps out there: @dhutches, @declan, the old WCC crew, et al.
@hober: Hard to believe @stoutsd's been open for three years. Happy anniversary, Mark, Dave, Adam, Daniel, and the rest of the crew!
@hober: @annevk rad. @stpeter's good, good people.
@hober: It's the last Friday of the month. You know what that means. http://criticalmasscansuckit.com/
@hober: At @stoutsd with @kirinqueen, @manifesto, and @jessimuhka. Irish pub bands, Racer 5, and awesomeness. Come join us!
@hober: @hober *@danifesto, obv.
@hober: For $5, @danifesto and I just put together the ultimate jukebox playlist at Lancers. Prince, Belly, Patti Smith, Eric B. & Rakim, etc.
@hober: @dacort I watched BOS crush NYY 14-1 at Fenway for my 30th. It was quite awesome.
@hober: "Tessie," 'Nuff Said McCreedie shouted, "we're not here to mess around!" And everyone now knows a Boston boy's been at the juke.
