Schemas you should know. What an eclectic list. Especially the ones that don't, you know, *have* schemas. But DocBook FTW!—@ndw
@ndw Out of curiosity, which ones do *not* have schemas? As non-techie, I need to be educated.—@jillmwo
@jillmwo RDF certainly doesn't. vCard and DC are RDF-based so they don't usually, though I suppose you could. SOAPs schema is only for hdrs—@ndw

What's not to love about a book called Ubuntu Kung Fu — and it has kittens!—@edd
@edd Oh indeed. We have these wonderful all night taco dives in Tucson, with Nico's being my fave especially for those breakfast burritos.—@mollydotcom
@mollydotcom I'm coming over. Now. Break out the tequila and coffee. In any order you please.—@edd
@edd - Mmm, how about an Icy icy icy pitcher of patron margaritas w/ fresh lime? Gosh that really does sound good today.—@mollydotcom
@mollydotcom For truely the best margaritas, you need PTO. Pick it up next time you're in TX:—@ndw

I wonder if I just synced my SideKick for the last time...—@ndw
@ndw What replaces it?—@dme
@dme An iPhone 3G (probably maybe almost certainly gosh the plans are bloody expensive but I waited this long...)—@ndw
@ndw iPhone 3G: exactly my thoughts. Can't resist at this point.—@ebruchez
@ebruchez Yeah. I expect I'll justify the extra $300/yr somehow. But I'll feel guilty about it. Angst and me are best buds.—@ndw

In a conversation that started on Wednesday at 12:45pm

Wondering what "Margarita-Driven Development" might produce.—@KathySierra
@KathySierra Deep feelings of well-being, last time I tried. And zero code. But we did make a plan for world domination.—@edd
@edd, @mollydotcom Pick me up on your way by, plzkthxbye—@ndw

Why do Swisscom and Orange think they must use Flash on their sites? Can't bookmark or select text. Horrible, pointless technology.—@ebruchez
@ebruchez I'm thinking of forming the CTEEUOF: The Campaign to Eliminate Egregious Use of Flash—@ndw

Wednesday at 01:17pm

Must get and twitter posts synced, but no time to do it today—@ndw

OK, looks like I will be late in the office on Friday:—@gmetrail
@gmetrail Not much work will be done on Friday anyway, don't you think?—@ebruchez
@ebruchez I dunno about your Friday, but mine is full o' work. Brimming. Running down the sides, spilling into Thu and threatening Sat.—@ndw

Looks to me like FF3 is not reloading anymore all the resources a page depends on when doing cmd-shift-R, like FF2 did—@avernet
@avernet Really? That would be surprising. Maybe an extension causing this?—@ebruchez
@ebruchez Strange: reload JS in tab 1: shows latest JS; then ctrl-shift-R page in tab 2, look at JS in Firebug debugger: shows old JS.—@avernet
@avernet You mean cmd-shift-R, rightt?—@ebruchez
@ebruchez I have no plans to attempt to buy an iPhone tomorrow. Too much work to do :-P—@ndw

sitting in my Ajax socks drinkin' Assam tea. How about you?—@mollydotcom
@mollydotcom I'm sitting here thinking about how much i want some Ajax socks...—@karlbright
@karlbright I have an Ajax wallet, too. Ajax Amsterdam, that is. But the pun carries quite readily, unless you're in the Netherlands ;)—@mollydotcom
@mollydotcom i have not been to "why" and I didn't know it existed; I looked up why they named it why:—@thec13
@thec13 Ha! That's great. I never knew "Y" they called it "Why" but I have been there on my way to Organ Pipe Nt'l Monument (astonishing).—@mollydotcom
@mollydotcom PTL is delicious too!—@ndw
@ndw So for today's menu, mix n' match to suit diet: BBQ Shrimp Sonora, tortillas, cheese, vegan refried beans, salsa and PTL Margaritas!—@mollydotcom
@mollydotcom I've never tried lemon in a margarita. I wonder what that would be like. And stop making me hungry :-)—@ndw

My hands are stained all sorts of colours after making playdough for the children.—@JeniT
@JeniT You are telling me that I will banned forever from Twitter if use the the f* word, and you encourage me to do it? :D—@avernet
@avernet So you upgraded to 2.0? I don't see yet see your first tweet from Twiterriffic on the iPhone ;-)—@ebruchez
@ebruchez I need to suffer the angst associated with $75/mo for a bit longer before I cave in.—@ndw

Swearing gets you censored on Twitter?—@ndw

doin some TDD in cocoa/xcode... unit test bundles in xcode seem pretty flakey (test rig crashes often), but overall it works well enough...—@iTod
@itod Fluid app that "appears in all spaces", "chromeless", "embedded in Desktop". Daily schedule at a glance, FTW!—@ndw

In a conversation that started on Saturday at 02:27pm
