Third rainy day at #Atta. Chances increase to see the rare Blue Poison Dart Frog #Guyana #fb—@ttso
@ttso I get more and more jealous with every tweet :-)—@ndw
@ndw There's a cure for that: book a trip yourself. Sooner than later 'cos the so-called 'progress' is approaching rapidly.—@ttso

Monday. With the suck removed.—@ndw
@ndw Beautiful. Is the water warm?—@bsletten

If you manage a physical location, a tourist attraction, for example, and your website doesn't include the fsking address, you're an idiot!—@ndw

It's not all sunsets at the beach.—@ndw

Won't delete my Google Web History. I'm a privacy defeatist: All my personal details are already owned and exploited by major corporations.—@jeresig

Dumb question. I accidentally deleted the "applications" button on my #android tablet. How the heck do I get it back?—@ndw
Probably an app for that. Oh, oops :-) QT @ndw: Dumb question. I accidentally deleted the "applications" button on my #android tablet.—@docum3nt
@ndw search for your application manager, and then put it back on the desktop.—@JeanKaplansky
@ndw holding your finger down on the screen does a lot of different things in different android situations- have fun with your sun and trees—@davidpflaherty

"Respect for 'faith' equals respect for ignorance and dogmatic refusal to question. What’s to respect about that?" -Ophelia Benson—@ndw
@ndw Respect for faith means that even your stupid ignorance of your biases could be overcame and we won't beat you over your head. ;)—@mcepl
@mcepl I'm aware of my biases and make allowances for them.—@ndw

I saw the assertion that #kickstarter funded more arts than the National Endowment. If true, I assert the end of civilization. By definition—@ndw
@ndw #kickstarter churchill springs to mind—@monkchips

Does my complete ignorance about The Hunger Games mark me as more than usually clueless and square?—@ndw
@ndw No, it means that you have little or no pre-teen contact in you life, mist likely.—@collwhit
@ndw re: Hunger Games. Nah. Just means you're not a teenage girl.—@JeanKaplansky

OH local taking pic w/phone "Just another crappy day in paradise; I'm gonna send this one to my brother in the states."—@ndw

I hate myself for submitting to TSA thuggery: it's not the act of a free, dignified person.—@kendall
@kendall I hear you. Nudie scanners at BDL now (my tax dollars wasted). Felt good to refuse and watch them scramble around to deal.—@ndw

Thursday at 03:06pm

Bruised, battered, and burnt, but I did mostly succeed on the stand-up paddle board. Eventually. Mostly. #vacationtales—@ndw

I love @github but… this is their vulnerability. And they take people's money. Rails is free. Just some food for thought.—@bphogan
@bphogan @github I'm having a hard time seeing that as an apples to apples comparison. But I'd also like more sites to take my money.—@ndw
@ndw I just think there are a lot of folks passing the blame on to Rails. Rails has enough of its own problems.—@bphogan
