@hober: RT @IgniteSanDiego: We're excited to have @MIHOgastrotruck serving up super delish local & sustainable food at @ignitesandiego 2! Thanks ...
@hober: I would very much like these IE memory leaks to go away before @ignitesandiego tonight.
@hober: RT @IgniteSanDiego: Also... due to a last minute emergency, @NewGrass can't deliver our fake grass in time. So *please* bring your chair ...
@hober: Trying out a new twitter arrangement: tircd+ERC. Quite happy with it so far.
@hober: @MarinaMartin well, @kirinqueen and I just tried that and it was weird. We'll stick with kissing.
@hober: Thanks to all who made last night's @ignitesandiego so awesome: our sponsors, volunteers, speakers, attendees, @MIHOGastrotruck, et alia!
@hober: @melissatruth Sarek, STIV.
@hober: RT @textfiles: I hope people remember that Google bought Etherpad, a perfectly good service, CLOSED it, and told people to use Google Wa ...
@hober: @orangewolf @declan let's hit it up for lunch one of these days. @orangewolf: any day next week? @declan: your next furlough Friday?
@hober: @rk YES.
@hober: @maradydd you should paint it white, so the zombies' paint jobs all show up better on it
@hober: A bit sad to be missing the Luminaria in @scituate tonight.
@hober: @dantecl wait, urbn has finally opened?
@hober: Hopping on our bikes and heading to @RitualTavern.
@hober: @Kinsee according to @LindsayDayton, it's the one at El Zarape.
@hober: @baconner some of the best voice talent ever assembled.
@hober: Rocking the @RitualTavern patio with the crew.
@hober: @melissatruth aye aye cap'n
@hober: @brynn that's awesome! Also, happy birthday!
@hober: melissatruth: fair enough. PS saw the boy today, enjoyed beer. That is all; carry on.
@hober: Hmm. Must tweak tircd config to make "twitter: bar" style replies into "@twitter: foo" style replies.
@hober: @declan yeah, I particularly liked their Kölsch.
@hober: Lovely brunch at Bamboo Lounge with the knitters.
@hober: @cssquirrel too much of a good thing is wonderful.
@hober: Enjoying a Houblon Chouffe and @kirinqueen's company at South Park Abbey.
@hober: @taphunter the new spot in what used to be the South Park Bar & Grill. Nice selection of Belgians which will be getting even better.
@hober: @mikeschu: it's at Grape & Fern, around the corner from the Big Kitchen.
@hober: @oddree2000: oh man, @kirinqueen and I need to get caught up on Mad Men. We're over a season behind. :(
@hober: "So, do we ship this thing?" 7 votes yes, 0 votes no. Is 10:45 too early for beer?
@hober: @sogrady no, everybody experiences that fear. At least, they *should*.
@hober: @mikeschu s/is/was/, yeah.
@hober: @antifuchs awesome, congrats! Whereabouts in CA?
@hober: Hope everyone enjoys the #node.js meetup at @SenchaInc tonight. I'm bummed to be missing it!
@hober: The HTML WG has officially decided something that was actually decided by the market long ago: <img longdesc> doesn't work.
@hober: @mikeschu we've only eaten there a couple of times—their burger is excellent. Drink-wise, they have a nice whiskey selection & Belgian ales.
@hober: @sdether indeed.
@hober: @mikeschu yeah, that'd be great! We've only been there once, and really enjoyed it.
@hober: Nice. @Hixie paves another cowpath worth writing down somewhere, and we get <select required> as a side effect. http://hbr.me/27FxPN
@hober: @ryah I love the #Node.js REPL, but I wish it only used readline on terms that support it; see http://gist.github.com/519891 for an example.
@hober: My fellow Americans, our long(desc) national nightmare is over.
@hober: Really digging @kylesteed's Clumsy, a whimsical typeface he's released under the OFL: http://clumsy.kylesteed.com/
@hober: @SDbeer where's Eleven? Somewhere along the 11 bus route I hope.
@hober: @SDbeer figures, given the ridiculous noise levels of both @hamiltons and @smallbar. I like to converse with the people I drink with.
@hober: @AirdalePanda congratulations!
@hober: @ryah indeed, and if you like my patch to fix this, it'll clock in at only 4 more lines. :)
@hober: @izs python, irb, and sbcl, to pick 3 random REPLs, all work under TERM=dumb out of the box. Node should too! Node's too awesome not to.
@hober: @MissPaaj that's awesome, congrats!
@hober: A bit sad to be missing the @AleSmithBrewing night at @thelinkery, but really looking forward to tonight's @djangosd meeting at @searocket!
@hober: RT @SDuncovered: CA same-sex marriages can restart in one week, judge rules today. Marriage license appointments in San Diego can be mad ...
@hober: Happy to see org-mode format support in the new @github wikis. #emacs
@hober: RT @mattur: #longdesc is accessibility theatre not accessibility. It should have been (officially) buried years ago. #a11y #axs #html5
@hober: @Madrox congratulations!
@hober: If the Prop 8 case actually makes it to the Ninth, I look forward to Kozinski skewering Prop 8 in some kind of hysterically funny fashion.
@hober: Hmm. Wondering the obvious re: the jQuery Mobile news: what's the relationship with jqTouch? Or is this more of an "F U @SenchaInc" move?
@hober: @jarin well played!
@hober: Whoever tweets the funniest Your Mom joke gets the Startup Weekend SD ticket I just won at #coolasevertech. I'll be in NYC so can't make it.
@hober: Sorry, @aboynamedart, @mikeschu: @gebl won the ticket in person.
@hober: I'm making debs of @theleagueof's fonts for installation under Debian or Ubuntu. You can follow along on @github: http://github.com/hober
@hober: @gebl I hope you enjoy it!
@hober: @oddree2000 Happy Birthday!
@hober: @madbardmike JINX PUT MAX IN SPACE
@hober: What's better than the Space Camp soundtrack being re-released? That I know at least two people who will buy it (*@madbardmike & @mokolabs).
@hober: Hey, Austinites who like beer! Head over to @FlyingSaucerAus tonight for some excellent beers from San Diego's @GreenFlashBeer.
@hober: Lazyweb: @kirinqueen's taking me out on my birthday Sunday while we're in NYC. Where should we eat (that we can still get reservations for)?
@hober: @bretthoerner I'm not there, no, but I'm a big, big fan of @GreenFlashBeer's beers.
@hober: @maradydd nice. My GV local part is NCC-1732 :)
@hober: @brucel ironically, that comment's longdesc example is invalid HTML4 (should be a URL, but he has a textual desc directly in there).
@hober: I <3 git bisect.
@hober: A bird tried to land in the left lane of 163N this morning. While I was driving in it. At about 80mph. It didn't work out well for the bird.
@hober: @gtmcknight, @dwc: Vivat @podbop!
@hober: @jennyjenjen we went with the downtown @papajohns for @SpaceUpConf.
@hober: @crossbuster13 why not both?
@hober: RT @BenWard: I look forward to Facebook Places crushing Foursquare just like the Facebook Newsfeed crushed Twitter. #monotechnology
@hober: @jedsundwall stay away!
@hober: The most charming detail of my dad's printing is his two-storey lowercase a. I like to think it's what got me interested in typography.
@hober: RT @holman: Pro tip: if Facebook hasn't enabled Places for you, check in once on touch.facebook.com in Chrome. Then it's enabled on your ...
@hober: Gave in and bought a great-looking leather messenger bag for my @zareason netbook. The bag: http://two23.com/ A review: http://hbr.me/1FVGyw
@hober: @woodyp don't forget that @twitter @IsNotRSS either.
@hober: Me, to cow-orker: "Happy checkboxes are all enabled alike. Unhappy checkboxes are each disabled in their own way."
@hober: @GoogleChat thanks for the Linux support! Just tested and it works just fine on my (Ubuntu) netbook.
@hober: Really enjoyed tonight's nerd dinner! Met a bunch of cool people, caught up with a bunch more. Good times.
@hober: @paulhutch1977 nice!
@hober: @brynn wow, that sounds really exciting! Congrats and good luck!
@hober: @jeffhammett Yup, I work in RB. We've been to @UrgeGastropub twice now—good food, great beer. Finally, a touch of civilization up here!
@hober: @jeffhammett I hear @twicca_en is really good, but as I don't have an Android phone I can't say for sure.
@hober: Lovely mornin in NYC. Wandering Central Park with @kirinqueen after bagel brekkie at Zabar's.
@hober: In Brooklyn, all gussied up and ready for the wedding. @kirinqueen looks fantastic. Life is good. :)
@hober: @miketaylr well, I'm lucky I made it out of Brooklyn. :)
@hober: @kirinqueen yes, yes we did. And we are now soaked.
@hober: Thanks everyone for your birthday wishes! We had a wonderful day running around NYC.
@hober: At the #triennial exhibit with @mgrdcm and @kirinqueen.
@hober: Grabbing a coffee with @rafuzo, who popped down from Boston for a business meeting. Evokes late nights at Bickford's.
@hober: Sticking it to the man—knitting at McSorely's http://flic.kr/p/8uUW7h
@hober: Enjoying a Six Point Bengali Tiger at the Spring Lounge.
@hober: Jesus effing Christ these are the best falafels I have ever had. No really. Murray's. Go there.
@hober: Absolutely epic pub crawl with @mgrdcm and @kirinqueen last night. The stuff of legend.
@hober: Several times I've thought, "gee, I should really go to @TEDxSanDiego." Then I read the registration form, get annoyed, and don't finish it.
@hober: Wow, @reid, yeti looks great! Congrats! #node.js
@hober: Celebrating our return to San Diego with a @lostabbey Devotion at @RitualTavern.
@hober: @Madrox oh crap, I guess that makes me "Facebook people." ugh.
@hober: @phuff wait, you were in town and I missed you? Granted, I was in NYC this weekend, but still.
@hober: Many congratulations to @tillyritter & @nateritter; can't wait to meet @boyritter!
@hober: @TEDxSanDiego I'd drop >half of the questions off of the registration form. Keep name, email, how did you hear about us. The rest can go.
@hober: @TEDxSanDiego yes, indeed, of course you do. There are several solutions to this problem that don't turn off your potential attendee pool.
@hober: @SourSarcasm @jessemellon Reliable Delivery. Seriously, they're awesome.
@hober: Wishing everybody there an awesome @SpaceUpDC!
@hober: @miketaylr congrats! That's fantastic news.
@hober: @CantonDog I believe you'll find him at @KaisonRitter these days.
@hober: Congratulations, @rohitkhare! I hope you kick all sorts of @microformats ass in the big G.
@hober: @bradwill congrats!
@hober: I hope all of the participants in this weekend's @node_knockout have a great time! A little sad to be skipping this one.
@hober: For a moment today, I thought "Wow! I agree with @shelleypowers about something!" Then she said she was being facetious. #html5
@hober: @melissatruth Bamboo Lounge's bottomless mimosas are fantastic, and overall, brunch there is cheaper (not all you can eat though).
@hober: As you go about your life tonight, in San Diego or elsewhere, don't forget that http://criticalmasscansuckit.com/ #probiking #antiassholery
@hober: I'll be digging into my copy of @diveintomark's "HTML5: Up and Running." Are the diffs with http://diveintohtml5.org/ just branding/style?
@hober: Don't feed the trolls. Don't feed the trolls. Don't feed the trolls. If I keep telling myself this, maybe I won't feed the trolls this time.
@hober: @bmljenny something tells me you're at @RitualTavern…
@hober: @bmljenny nope. We're at the Regal Beagle. Hit @RitualTavern on Wednesday with the knitting crew.
@hober: @shelleypowers if you think that, I must be doing something right.
@hober: @jeffhammett indeed. I'm all for social bike rides, and I'm all for raising awareness among motorists. Yet http://criticalmasscansuckit.com/
@hober: @foxcaptain that was my crown before it was yours. :)
@hober: @foxcaptain I wouldn't have it any other way.
@hober: Synched the photos off of my iPhone with F-spot. Didn't know it could do that. Now uploading to flickr.
@hober: @astrogerly congrats!
@hober: Many congratulations to @sogrady and @girltuesday on your wedding day. :)
@hober: Finally tried The Smoking Goat tonight, with @kirinqueen and her folks. Quite yummy.
@hober: @ihodes do you mean Civ Rev, or is there a new one?
@hober: At an all-you-can-eat buffet with friends. For my second round, I couldn't be bothered to get anything but bacon.
@hober: @dhutches seriously. That was the entirety of the contents of my brain at that time.
@hober: @girltuesday no way, really? My folks honeymooned on Nantucket. I hope you and @sogrady have a great time in my fair home state. :)
@hober: @dhutches oh sweet Jebus, that sounds like my kind of menu.
@hober: @MarinaMartin no way, @dacort rules. I mean, anybody whose @twitter name gets iPhone spellcheck autocorrected to "savory" must be rad-QEMFD.
@hober: @MarinaMartin oh. Well fuck that then.
@hober: @joonspoon we'll see you there soon enough. (You can see our place from where we're having dinner tonight.)
@hober: OH: The uterus. It's magic.
@hober: RT @nathangibbs: Well, sort of. RT @nathangibbs: I just unlocked the "Border Crossing" badge on @foursquare! http://t.co/AwxKr7S
@hober: European Yahtzee scoring is bullshit. I'm looming at you, @paulhutch1977.
@hober: @jennyjenjen tl;dr
@hober: @joonspoon as they say on the Internet, fuck yeah seafood.
@hober: Trying out @teuxdeux on @adactio's recommendation.
@hober: RT @SDBeerFest: Only one day left to save $10 off door price and get your SD Beer Fest tix for just $30. Deadline is midnight Wed. Buy a ...
@hober: Tonight I'm working retail for the first time since high school—I'm covering the front at the @SpaceEmporium Tuesday nights.
@hober: Oh, I see how it is. Here I am, slaving away at the @SpaceEmporium, and @kirinqueen is at @ElTakeItEasy with another man. @mokolabs no less.
