Twitter Weekly Updates for 2009-11-29

  • Why should thanking a colleague for everything they've done turn into a political event? Giving thanks is so much better when you mean it! #
  • RT "Everybody's broke, so here's the rule for Christmas this year; if you still shit your pants, you get a present. Otherwise tough shit" #
  • Still humming & hawing about moving the backend of my #Filemaker db's to MS SQL. Such an investment in time at the risk of so much bitching #
  • Installing OS X Snow Leopard Server on Parallels to test before rolling it out live. What a great way to trouble shoot! #
  • At Citadel's production of Tom Stoppard’s Rock ‘n Roll. Stoppard was born in Czechoslovakia… Who knew? #
  • Tom Stoppard wonders why we apologize for history. So do I… After all it's what made us what we are. #
  • The west side of the building showing the windows for the staff room with the main cafĂ© dining area directly above. #
  • Studio Theatre's Desdemona kicks the Citadel’s ass #
  • Installing VMWare trial to see how it stacks up to my Parallels install. The 2GHz mini w/ 2 GB not quite enough to vm machines usable! #
  • Just finally figured out virtual hosts. Man am I ever slow at this! Now to free up some static IPs. #
  • Why do you Twitter? Some are obvious @jdarrah & some are fun @a href=”” class=”aktt_username”>shitmydadsays, some are educational @a href=”” class=”aktt_username”>emckean, but I just diary things: for fun #

The Enjoy Centre

I was down at the building site this afternoon to checkout the newly arrived greenhouses (all the way from Holland) and I snapped a bunch of pics.

Art photography

I took this with my iPhone last night at the Xmas Event at Hole’s. There aren’t usually lights in the greenhouse–these were strung for the tours– so this is a unique perspective on our Christmas crop.

Sometimes I love my job…


Time on my hands

Arrive in time
Time travel
When are you here

Time loops
Replaying all the time
We’ve been here before
So many times

Last time
The final time
Before I go forward
In time

On occasion of mulling over time travel, again
