Retweeted by Dale McGladderyThese composites are weirdly fascinating, even if they do strangely resemble static on an old TV set. makes me very sad. "Flickr is one of the very few Yahoo services that continue to grow in popularity" @kcdyer It’s definitely soup weather! I hope the wind didn’t cause too much havoc your way.
Just discovered @vancouverSOUP Crowdfunding + gameshow (sort of) + social good + food! #35, in which @rtanglao & I discuss whether we are people not of our time can’t get enough of the Dr Who theme. Hearing it played on a $5 Pi Zero, awesomeness! "black" helicopter leaving the post office. helicopter, no id, landed on the roof on the downtown post office. Either they’re filming or there was a very special delivery.Congratulations to our own @webchick for being named one of the 10 Women in Tech to Watch in 2016!!

I just heard Ted Cruz's first words on his Iowa caucus win: "To God goes the glory." That's Republican for "Allahu Akbar!"

@sillygwailo I stood in for you at New Town today w/@rtanglao . I think the staff miss you & R. There were comments!
Live wires, blocked intersection, slowed buses; no pressure getting this job done quick & safe! :)
@stargazy I think it’s one of the more popular in its class.
Ug, the Desire to Learn discussion feature is tedious :( And their use of JavaScript detracts instead of enhances.

Happy birthday, Karen!
@TransLink Yes, it says that, but in my case w/a new blank card from London Drugs, I had new compass card. Buy Compass card unambiguous. @stargazy Something like that :) @TransLink Button on vending machine should say “Buy New Card”, not “New”. It’s ambiguous. Using a blank card for 1st time also “new”.First experience with @TransLink Compass card is awful and I haven’t even ridden a bus, yet. @LondonDrugs staffer not helpful, either.Fog at night in the comfort of a warm living room is cool
@StacieBee I did click on the link but didn’t see it in the picture! Dale Instagram fail. Thanks for the info, looks yummy. @StacieBee You didn’t give us the name! (Or are you keeping it a secret?) @counti8 Ha! Nice :) Strikes me as more of a licence plate style problem, though ….Sad, @moleskine has cheaped out on paper quality. My Pilot V Pen now bleeds through :( Guess I’m checking out @Leuchtturm1917 #BulletJournalI love the theme from Futurama, maybe it’s the chimes.

Retweeted by Dale McGladderyLots of food/shopping places close early tonight. If you need groceries do it early! #firstworldproblems @koodo Ah, the secret page :) Thanks. Pls also let them know I like this layout better than login page. Not as pretty but more functional. @koodo I do not see that option on the self serve home page or pages it links to? Where does this option live?
@Khaled_ca In case you’re curious: @soundjam69 @themarina @Adrian_CharlieWowsers, the Koodo client site is abysmal. Navigation utterly broken w/no links to important pages, no direct client support contact option. @koodo How do I get my monthly bill and/or reminder emailed to me?Cartoonist @davekellett sums Facebook pages up perfectly: @ReneeStephen It’s the thrill of molding something old into someone new, I think. Maybe that’s just me.Drupal 6 -> 8 content came over great. Had 2 known issues easy to fix b/c known. Redoing my custom gallery will be a pain, expected this :( @themarina I marathoned Session 5 of Haven on Sunday & Monday. It was good for the soul! :)Guys, it’s the eve of the eve, the penultimate, the day for before last 24 hours. Who left the barn door open so the 2015 days could escape? @themarina @Khaled_ca I’m good. Was just going to bed. Felt like being stopped on a long bridge that’s moves only more so. Gentle but weird.

Sad that some folks worked hard on it. I miss Admin Menu module. 1/2Just tried out my first #Drupal 6 -> Drupal 8 migration test using the defaults. Initial results promising, but definitely some work to do.
