  • Ср, 17:38: @adtrevors Is there a way to cancel a ticket on eventbite? Something came up tonight, I can't make it to the FDUG meeting.
  • Ср, 17:45: @adtrevors Cool, thanks. See you at the HTML 5 one. :)

  • Fri, 13:09: Changed the registry to make an old VB 6 project compile. Now IE doesn't have popup windows of any kind. This feels like Monday.
  • Fri, 14:23: If you ever have to deal with a broken IE like I did today, this website is invaluable: http://t.co/a8E1NiaD

  • Wed, 17:44: Bioware really needs to get some more capacity behind the TOR website, it's been a real PITA to get into the last few days.

  • Пт, 12:21: Our phone contract is up, so we're in the market for something new. It'll be on Bell most likely. iPhone 4S, or Android?
  • Пт, 12:39: @adtrevors Did you ever get one of those? I know you were looking for quite a while.
  • Пт, 12:40: @thegman That's where we're leaning right now, just because Android phones on Canadian carriers don't tend to get updated very well.
  • Пт, 12:41: @adtrevors Ah. Wife's not interested in waiting since our old phone is highly obsolete, so that's out. :)
  • Пт, 15:09: @thegman @matty_simms It flagged mine for review, not sure what's up with that.
  • Пт, 22:03: @BenKuchera No, those are planted reviews. Bioware got caught on that with Dragon Age 2 and it just made the backlash against it worse.

  • Пт, 01:01: @Lee_Miller They don't. Take a look at the budget. There's no money.
  • Пт, 01:14: @Lee_Miller No, I mean there's no money. The deficit is way too big and we're going to be cut off if we don't get it under control.
  • Пт, 01:15: @Lee_Miller Health is such a huge part of the budget and the fastest growing one. Not cutting it requires shutting down everything else.
  • Пт, 01:27: @Lee_Miller "Cutting costs" will never get to the numbers required. There WILL be job losses in health care. It can't be done any other way.

  • Tue, 14:24: SportsCentre sure is a lot less cluttered without any NBA news. You think they can keep this lack of games up for an entire season?
  • Tue, 14:43: @BenKuchera No I think you have to do Skyrim anyway, despite what Bethesda pulled. At least that one will be fun to play?

  • Пн, 17:23: I'm debugging VB 6 code today. Compared to modern tools, it feels like going through a time warp into an age where people hated developers.

  • Ср, 12:49: @adtrevors @shawnrouse People rarely vote in favor of anything, even good policy. Referendums are good politics and bad governing #nbpoli
  • Ср, 20:03: I wonder how many years governments will be screwing up the economy before they clue in that you can't borrow your way out of a debt crisis.
  • Ср, 23:10: Oh look, Firefox 8 broke ANOTHER addon. Dear @Mozilla - stop breaking the main feature people use your browser for.

  • Вт, 19:17: @Lamespotting They'd probably stop failing if UNB stopped insisting on rewriting the system every time. It's not happening.
  • Вт, 19:36: @Lamespotting UNB SU is also making much more ridiculous demands like Sunday service and a hub at the SUB.
  • Вт, 19:37: @Lamespotting It's nothing new, UNB has been screwing this up since 2007 because they want stuff that the city can't afford to provide.
  • Вт, 19:41: @Lamespotting More runs? Sure. Sunday service requires significant budget changes though. There was also some other issues.
  • Вт, 19:42: @Lamespotting The issue for me is when I was still at UNB, they would make it impossible to get a deal done, then blame the city.
  • Вт, 19:47: @Lamespotting Agreed. It's silly it's taken so long, there's a real win-win for both parties if they get it done.
  • Вт, 19:52: @BenKuchera It won't end so long as other sites support it by reviewing the game early. The industry has to band together to become credible
  • Ср, 11:04: @adtrevors Nothing says political coward quite like hiding behind referendums on everything. Likely a second one term premier. #nbpoli

  • Пт, 18:47: @BenKuchera Guess you were lucky enough to skip Sword of the Stars 2 then? Man, what a disappointment THAT was. :(
  • Пт, 18:59: @Bell_Aliant Pretty happy with it so far, the PVR's responsiveness to FF/Rewind requests is great and the whole-home playback is nice.
  • Сб, 12:18: Off to games day at the downtown library soon!

  • Чт, 20:56: @kenfisher Does that include the ridiculous misleading flamebait "IT hates Apple" one? That's not a good way to get hits IMO.
