@hober: @joonspoon there's a Great Big Sea song ("The Mermaid," on "The Hard and The Easy," on that very question.
@hober: @kirinqueen jinx.
@hober: @nathangibbs Have you tried http://measuredvoice.com/ ?
@hober: @aconbere data-*="" attributes w/ JSON in them.
@hober: @aconbere well, such attrs work in IE, though the new JS API obviously doesn't. And they're valid HTML5. Not sure what "valid in IE" means.
@hober: @daveheigl IIII is perfectly acceptable for 4 in roman numerals, though less common than IV. http://hbr.me/R4UNh
@hober: @daveheigl "Clock faces […] labelled using Roman numerals conventionally show IIII for 4 o'clock and IX for 9 o'clock" http://hbr.me/R4UNh
@hober: RT @MarenReport: Stumbled upon this photo collection of early San Diego breweries on the @SanDiegoHistory site: http://bit.ly/bBIrhE
@hober: Revenge is a dish that is best served cold. Ice cold. I hear @orangewolf just iced @mokolabs… from 2,000 miles away. Well done, Rob.
@hober: @Lauracath22 @kirinqueen hell yeah!
@hober: Ironically, the only thing I ever used Vox for was to import all my @pownce posts when *it* shut down. You're 0-for-2, @sixapart.
@hober: First one at @hivehaus for @jellyinsandiego. Also, I <3 bike commuting.
@hober: People! @briancavalier's looking for his next gig. Anyone need some serious front-end engineering and UX hotness? http://briancavalier.com/
@hober: @cdixon *was*? It still is!
@hober: @flowingdata Have you tried anolis? It'll help for ToC generation, etc. http://anolis.gsnedders.com/
@hober: @manusporny I stand by what I wrote in that post. @liberatr overstated its position w.r.t. RDFa/HTML compat.
@hober: Biked home from @jellyinsandiego, followed by beer in the shower.
@hober: @jessemellon you're damn right I did.
@hober: @derek wait, you're in town? We must hang out.
@hober: RT @chneukirchen: Comments on websites are hopeless. Just disable them, really.
@hober: @derek don't go to the Yard House. You're in the beer capital of the world. Try @RitualTavern, @blindladyale, or @neighborhoodsd.
@hober: @derek we were literally just there 10min ago. :) Maybe we could hit up @ElTakeItEasy or @thelinkery for lunch tomorrow…
@hober: @SourSarcasm @jessemellon nice! Awesome French toast there.
@hober: Finally saw Scott Pilgrim. Enjoyed it quite a bit. The actress who played Ramona really reminded me of @cameo.
@hober: @ginatrapani grant's in south park, cheese shop in la jolla shores, chalkboard deli in PB.
@hober: @enkrates If it was anything like ours, I think I do know. :)
@hober: @ihodes story of my life.
@hober: Hello, person who put Kraftwerk's Autobahn on the jukebox at @whistlestopbar. Funny. Odds that you stuck around for all 22 minutes? ~0%.
@hober: @rafuzo I'm sorry to hear it. Life is, at best, too fucking short.
@hober: @joonspoon You may have won this round, but I'll be the mayor again, and soon.
@hober: @h3h I'm still sad that there's a 6-character minimum username length.
@hober: SD peeps: let's go on the charity @DrinkAbout on the 19th. It's raising money for @Pints4Prostates four days before my dad starts radiation.
@hober: !שנה טובה
@hober: Excellent crowd at @BlindLadyAle tonight, though I think @jeffhammett left before I could say hi.
@hober: RT @kevinmarks: #GoogleInstant will revive British English, as it censors 'ass' but not 'arse', 'poof' not 'poofta', 'shit' not 'shite', ...
@hober: @nateritter yes.
@hober: RT @brotherdarkness: You'd think instead of burning the Koran people would just watch Man v. Food for 4 hours. The message is the same, ...
@hober: @leefur you're leaving one great city for another one. Speaking of which, go to the @AlibiRoom while there. You won't regret it.
@hober: @streamieorg I can't log in. http://streamie.org/ , click 'sign in with twitter', click 'allow', and land on logged out streamie page again.
@hober: @ilovemypitbull indeed.
@hober: @mnot very cool.
@hober: It makes me sad that OpenID autodiscovery in HTML requires there to be explicit <html> and <head> elements.
@hober: @frescosecco M-x ielm RET is your REPL for Emacs Lisp, so your "none" entry on that row is wrong.
@hober: @technoweenie damn, that sounds awesome.
@hober: RT @pjdoland: If you had predicted 20 years ago that avant garde québécois performance art would take over Vegas, people would have thou ...
@hober: @CantonDog Srsly. What's the deal, Padres fans? Your team is in 1st place, your stadium is gorgeous. Why don't you go? #imnotinbostonanymore
@hober: @CantonDog yeah, it's like San Diegans don't even know how to be fair-weather fans.
@hober: @rafuzo back in NYC so soon?
@hober: @rafuzo very nice! Tell Mr. Maloney I say hi!
@hober: @kevinthompson AEA San Diego, my man.
@hober: @drewwilson indeed, there are some beers that taste like piss. Wailua Wheat from Kona is a modern example. For gross fun, read WP:Lant.
@hober: RT @arnaudsj: Congrats #Rackspace for pulling the plug on the crazy pastor: http://bit.ly/apw248
@hober: @kirinqueen it is known—it looks good on everybody.
@hober: @mikeschu such centralization works fine for Netflix. I imagine there's some kind of libertarian point I might be making.
@hober: @streamieorg works from here, but I'm at a different machine on a different network. Will test tomorrow from original host.
@hober: @joonspoon Another reason to hate my commute. :/
@hober: @streamieorg Everything but the mentions tab working fine here. Mentions tab just stays blank though.
@hober: Not everyone likes @Hixie's spec writing style, but it makes implementing the tokenizer require almost no thought. This is a *good* thing.
@hober: RT @pornelski: It's awesome that BBC is going to have W3C rep. Much better than blogging "html5 is off track, because WG trolls said so".
@hober: RT @TVRaman: WAI-PF will continue to work in secret --- despite requests to change . http://www.w3.org/2010/05/WAI-activities-proposal # ...
@hober: @llangit 1) go to @github 2) type something into the search box
@hober: @streamieorg indeed. thanks!
@hober: I'm using @streamieorg as my "desktop" @twitter client. Works well as a Chrome app (no location bar etc.) in a narrow window on 2nd screen.
@hober: @wycats wow, congrats!
@hober: Manning the counter at the @SpaceEmporium.
@hober: Yo, @GoogleChat: in gmail, when I pop out a chat window into its own window, I wish the favicon was more chat and less mail for Alt-TAB win.
@hober: @mattur ugh.
@hober: @chrislouden there used to be a @capriottis in Hillcrest, the only one in SD. I miss the Bobbie big-time.
@hober: @mattur I meant <ugh />, sorry.
@hober: @capriottis @chrislouden I'm happy to hear it!
@hober: RT @h3h: Now *that’s* a response worthy of publication: http://✪df.ws/g6x
@hober: @ElTakeItEasy I can't wait for the baby seal cazuela!
@hober: @DmitryBaranovsk stellar shirt.
@hober: 1) go to @RitualTavern. 2) ask for a Smashed & Stormy. 3) Drink. 4) tell Nick he's a genius. 5) Rinse & repeat.
@hober: Any email that starts "oh dear god stop this" must be awesome. Enjoyed this email of @mikeal's to the #nodejs ml a lot: http://hbr.me/5TiYMC
@hober: @bpalmer Chrome.
@hober: Loving this "whosicles" shirt. Exterminate hunger! They're dalektable! http://hbr.me/52JB2u
@hober: @Madrox who would win in a fight: Steve w/ shuriken v. RMS w/ his katana? http://hbr.me/5TLX7u
@hober: @AirdaleBrewNate a mix of your Dark & Stormy and Shipyard's Smashed Pumpkin. Très yummy. CC @RedTheTrucker.
@hober: @shelleypowers nice 'how to comment on the html5 spec' guide!
@hober: I don't intend to, but one could plausibly make the argument that all of the current HTMLWG co-chairs should recuse themselves from ISSUE-41
@hober: @leefur welcome back!
@hober: @krysaia catching the 2:30 southbound from station. Will quickly pop head into hamiltons to see if it's crazy. If not, stay, if so, north.
@hober: On the northbound @DrinkAbout bus at @hamiltons. @StoneGreg sighting at Pista Palace. Next stop: @RitualTavern!
@hober: At @RitualTavern with @kirinqueen, @hopcentric, @hoplessinsd, and the just-met @craftbeerandco.
@hober: @nateritter I've had it for several days now. Maybe it's being pushed out by sign-up date?
@hober: Thanks to @RitualTavern for charging my iPhone and inadvertently making me responsible for the music at your fine venue. :)
@hober: RT @timbray: Romulan warbird decloaking: http://abstrusegoose.com/303
@hober: @Adora you have to go get falafel from Murray. It will change your life.
@hober: @Adora haven't heard of any plans yet, but we'll keep you posted.
@hober: @jedsundwall yes, yes we are. CC: @mokolabs, @mattetti

@hober: Really looking foward to heading down to the @tijuanarb meeting tomorrow night with @mokolabs and @jedsundwall.
@hober: "as long as…there's no [way in] which independent parties can define new elements, I will never be satisfied."—@samruby http://hbr.me/48mSpw
@hober: WebID: because the thing holding back OpenID adoption is… it lacks gratuitous use of RDF. Riiiiight. http://getwebid.org/
@hober: It's been a surprisingly busy night at the @SpaceEmporium, and we've only been open for 15 minutes! In South Park? Swing by and say hi!
@hober: RT @OpenSanDiego: Save the date! Our first official event will be October 5th at 6pm at the San Diego Media Arts Center (@macsd) Details ...
@hober: .@loganb indeed; adoping XRIs/XRDS/etc. was possibly the biggest mistake OpenID > 1.0 made. I'm really sad they went down that route.
@hober: RT @sogrady: Google News is frigging 8? god i am old RT @google: Happy 8th birthday Google News! http://bit.ly/9CaShD
@hober: RT @bryanl: Is "technical co-founder" 2010 slang for "someone to build my shit (for cheap I hope)"
@hober: @h3h many congratulations!
@hober: At the inaugural @tijuanarb meeting. Great turnout! http://yfrog.com/mwip4hj

@hober: @perich that's what Measured Voice is for. http://measuredvoice.com/
@hober: @declan sorry about that; we're not very good at remembering to thoroughly clean up after our ritual sacrifices.
@hober: The HTML WG's ISSUE-41 poll: http://hbr.me/4sGioj I know the CPs don't capture the years of intelligent points made, so please speak up now!
@hober: @codepo8 yes, you need to be a participant in the WG. Fortunately, joining the WG is easy: http://blog.whatwg.org/w3c-restarts-html-effort
@hober: @Molliway classic stuff. Soon you'll be one of us—stuck waiting for the next book.
@hober: The folks at @searocket call their current prix fixe "figgin' figtastic," and it lives up to the name! http://fb.me/GLZ7S9zj #omnomnomnomnom
@hober: OH: "Nothing says 'date night' like throwing up in your mouth!"
@hober: @woodyp congrats!
@hober: @blindladyale I am exceedingly pleased to hear it.
@hober: RT @jessimuhka: I almost forgot, #criticalmasscansuckit
@hober: @Kinsee oh man, that mai tai kicked @kirinqueen's ass. The navy grog did me in.
@hober: Collective nouns of the evening: a tacklebox of makeup; a basement of booty.

@hober: Lovely BBQ at Nuevo Casa O'Connor with @mokolabs @lisinsd @rion @ellenjuhlin & @kirinqueen.
@hober: @leefur お帰りなさい！
@hober: @kevinmarks Have you read @willwilkinson's excellent stuff on status hierarchies?
@hober: I needed to convert web-style #rrggbb colors to their closest Pantone matches; hacked up some Emacs Lisp to do it. For good or for awesome?
@hober: At South Park Abbey for @sdspace Space Night Out. Dragged @kirinqueen along with me.
@hober: @paulhutch1977 Look on the bright side: at least that's your Ipswich and not Massachusetts'.
@hober: @trochee yeah, AUCTeX is the shit. #emacs
@hober: Manning the @SpaceEmporium, working on my emacs lisp implementation of the HTML5 tokenizer. It's perilously close to actually working.
@hober: The tokenizer is currently passing 0 out of the 2932 tokenization tests from html5lib. :) Of course, my test runner is just stubbed.
@hober: @wingwit I'm so sorry.
@hober: RT @b0yle: That should do it, folks: House passes Senate bill on NASA vision; New Space folks should be happy
@hober: @krysaia hear hear! @melissatruth is the bestest!
@hober: @RedTheTrucker amusingly enough, I'll be doing exactly the same thing.

@hober: @ryah I made the switch back recently too. Very happy I did.
@hober: . @creationix @ryah I'm thrilled with @zareason's Terra HD—it's my main #nodejs dev box. Nice to support a Linux-only HW vendor too.
@hober: RT @mathias: I shortened http://goo.gl/ using http://goo.gl/ and all I got was this lousy URL: http://goo.gl/VVW3
@hober: @RealJayPorter you at the game too?!
@hober: @thepegisin yay!
@hober: Miguel Tejada's at-bat song? P-Funk's "Flashlight." Well done!
@hober: (incf (kilts-at 'petco-park)) ; First kilt sighting: a bloke in a Scotland rugby jersey. avec sporran. Hope he smuggled booze in that thing.
@hober: "Happy Birthday DMV" on the jumbotron. Sorry, really? Every five birthdays they make your life suck. Why wish them a god one?
@hober: @gdarklighter we're in 116 row 18. I'm sure it was the same guy.
