@BadAstronomer There are multiple sites you can get this info from. They get it from public records. You can try to block them in vain.

Watched The Other Guys. Not very good. I was disappointed. Next on the list is The Town and Dinner for Schmucks. I have high hopes for both.

What is the hubbub over the possibility of Kevin Smith retiring from directing? Have you watched his films? Most are not good.

The $.99 eagle in Angry Birds is a sad “lets try to squeeze folks for money” gimmick. Really, a “please buy me” button on every level?

@KevinCrossman The white bomb birds are the second worst birds. They only seem cool.

via Twittelator in reply to KevinCrossman

@KevinCrossman No way. At least the red ones are useful. Most levels ‘rang birds are on I can get three stars by shooting them straight.

I have tested with Nicecast and so far, it works great. We’ll see how my bandwidth holds up. :-) It also works with listening via iPhone!

via TweetDeck

Broadcasting audio only via UStream seems interesting. I may play with that. For now, however, I am going to trial Nicecast by @RogueAmoeba.

via TweetDeck

I have been doing a lot of research on broadcasting with both Live365 and Shoutcast. Both seem too heavy for me right now.

via TweetDeck

@KevinCrossman Are you kidding? I think people like him better than me! :-)

via TweetDeck in reply to KevinCrossman

I am thinking around 1pm-ish Pacific Time, Tuesdays and Thursdays. I am open to other times (US Pacific based), if anyone has input.

via TweetDeck

I am also going to try my hand at live broadcasting. My live stream will be a music radio like show. Likely an hour show twice a week.

Something I can more easily maintain. Shorter and more consumable.

Okay, I have been asked countless times, “What the heck happened to your podcast???” It will be back in 2011 with a different format.

@weberwithoneb When I have blocked users they do disappear from my followers list. Sometimes instantly, sometimes after a day or so. Weird.

@weberwithoneb Nope, :-) because It is not about defending America or other nations. It is about recklessly putting people at risk for fame.

I just watched Saving Private Ryan again. It is as powerful as it was the first time.

@weberwithoneb That has nothing to do with Wikileaks. All Assange has done is put innocent people in danger.

@weberwithoneb I disagree. What positive change has Wikileaks made, besides psedo-fame for Assange?
