  • Sorry, but I find the telemarketing style calls from SES quite annoying. I hope to attend SES San Jose, but don't need calls to remind me… #
  • Anyone have any experience with someone else's coupon showing up in Google Local/Maps? Ours in correct in admin, but other shows on page. #
  • Message to Google Local/Maps: That forum you refer to as "Support" is a joke. NO ONE gets questions answered, it appears. SHAME on you! #

  • Wow, Chrome just hung big time, requiring reboot. Strange. I know, I'll blame it on Windows Vista! 😉 #
  • Let's see: News sites start charging, readership dries up, ads dry up, content is hidden from search engines, news sites go out of business. #
  • So, newspapers think charging for content will save them? Here's a really nice post about why that isn't going to work. http://is.gd/1Cim7 #

  • At Palm Springs airport waiting for flight to Dallas then on to Hattiesburg, MS to visit my mother. Already miss home! Back Monday. #
  • At DFW airport sitting in plane. Might miss my connection if the damned plane in our gate doesn't move! C'mon American Airlines! Move it! #
  • Ran like Hell to catch connecting flight only to find it running late. You've really made my day, American Airlines! 😦 #
  • Made it to Hattiesburg, but my luggage didn't. Thanks for a rotten trip so far, American Airlines! #
  • Darn. Just got my Google Voice invite the one time I can't do anything about it. Offline mostly until Tuesday. So frustratingly bad timing! #
  • American Airlines, you told me at 7 am that my lost suitcase was found and be delivered to hotel by 6 pm. It's 9:09 pm & no bag! FAIL! #
  • Every Republican in congress who thinks government run health care is evil HAS gov run healthcare! And they love it!! (via @HalSparks) #
  • American Airlines, WHY Fedex my bag to my hotel on Friday night? Fedex doesn't deliver on weekends & I return to Palm Springs Monday. STUPID #
  • I now see why the airlines are in such trouble…charge extra for a single suitcase to be checked, lose it, deliver it AFTER trip is over… #
  • – I am totally convinced that the American Airline baggage service is inept if they deliver bags to destinations AFTER YOU LEAVE! #idiots #

  • I'd say horny heteros are a bigger threat to traditional marriage than gay marriage, huh Gov. Sanford? 😉 #
  • I dunno. Something must be wrong with my geek gene. Somehow I've never had any interest in Transformers-cartoon, movie or otherwise. Hmm… #

  • And, if the Wall Street Journal really thinks Google is a "digital vampire" there's this little file called robots.txt that acts like garlic #

  • – I can't believe the Sci Fi Channel is going through with the name change to SyFy. That is SO lame! Commercials confirm it. FAIL! #
  • IMHO, all SEO job sites should have the option of filtering out certain companies. I for one see everything by Odesk as totally irrelevant. #
  • FACEBOOK FRIEND: Jeeze, I broke a bottle of wine at the grocery…feel like an ass… RESPONSE FROM OTHER FRIEND: Alcohol abuse … #
