Follow Friday – Christmas Eve

24 Dec

For those who celebrate, Merry Christmas! For those who don’t, happy boring TV day! Our celebration has already started as we’ve opened up some of the toys we bought for Isobel during our recent shopping trip. She is enjoying her dollhouse and trying to remove all the clothing from its rabbit inhabitants. Excellent! This just means more rabbit inhabitants are surely on their way.

In other news, check out Pinboard Daily to see my post on the front page. My parents would be so proud! Especially after they read the part where I call someone’s Mom a whore. I am trying out Pinboard (after trying some other sites that immediately disappointed me) and am very happy with it so far. I think the less to take from this is: 1. insult a company’s mother 2. wait for them to be very gracious about it, 3. PROFIT! Except for the part where I don’t think many companies would be gracious, this plan is GENIUS.

I hope your weekend is filled with peace and a full belly, whatever you celebrate.

Still Pissed At Yahoo

22 Dec

You know how when you complain about something on Twitter, and then the company you’ve railed against replies?

Here’s a summary of my morning:

And afterward:

I have not taken well to the threat of Delicious closing up shop. I’m pissed at Yahoo and I directed this rage at Pinboard. I clearly didn’t read the pricing matrix for Pinboard. I thought they were trying to capitalize on the masses of users fleeing Delicious.   I’m not sure if I’m going to go with Pinboard quite yet, as I’ve heard good things about some other companies out there, but the security of knowing your bookmarks are safe has me thinking. I rely on my bookmarks at work, at home, and on my phone. Information is my currency, and it is my vocation. I really don’t see anything wrong with charging a fee if I find the service valuable. I’m just not sure what I’m going to do yet.

I owe Pinboard an apology for flying off the handle.

Yahoo can still go fuck its mom, though.
