I have started making a lot of "Friends Only" posts, so if you're reading this and don't aren't on my friends list, you probably should be, so leave me a comment and I'll probably add you.

got hit today on the way back from lunch Aug. 3rd, 2009 @ 04:32 pm
I was driving back from lunch today when someone tried to make a left turn from the center lane, while I was passing them in the left lane.

This happenedCollapse )

No, I wasn't twitterring at the time.

Called 911, and Officer L E Hankins came from the RPD and was extremely friendly, patient, and helpful. The other driver didn't have a great command of the English language, but she got enough info from him to determine what happened before she came over and talked to me.

The police report should be ready within a couple days. I called Geico, they referred me to the other dude's insurance since he was at fault. Called them, and should hear from an adjuster in a day or two.

The best part? The other driver's passenger had some outstanding warrants, so he got a ride away from the scene in the back of Officer Hankins' cruiser.

[howto] use automator to script uploading a twitter picture Dec. 12th, 2008 @ 04:43 pm
I set up an Automator script today to help me get my oversized, animated Twavatar working (see it in action here)

Most of it was recorded, the "Watch me do" workflow action is really slick.

I could clean this up with some more work to make it more general, but instead I'll walk you through making your own.

A how-to'ing we will go!Collapse )

“It works like this: if you use Flickr, go to the sixth page of your photostream and pick the sixth picture there, then post it to your blog, and pass it on to six other people.”

Edited to add: forgot to name 6 people. erm, pick yourselves if you feel like it.

Just kidding ;)

In case you missed it on Twitter, I just donated $250 to this year's Lupus Walk, through a friend of mine. I challenge each and every one of you to make a contribution too. It doesn't have to be much, just something.

You can donate here.

A few years ago, I wrote a post and spammed it over a bunch of relevant communities, and its just as true now, Get your pink ribbon out of my goddamn face.

The most relevant part: ...more people have Lupus than </b>AIDS, cerebral palsy, multiple sclerosis, sickle-cell anemia and cystic fibrosis... COMBINED</b>. Between 1.5-2 million people in the US alone. That's roughly 10 TIMES as many as there are Breast Cancer patients.

Its even more true now, as more companies release pink versions of their products, and girls are wearing "Great tits are worth keeping" shirts around campus.
