• Goddamnit. I hate—HATE—when companies make it impossible to find the “cancel my service” link on their web site. I’m looking at you, @iiNet. #
  • Sitting in a café watching a young woman cry on the shoulders of her friends. This is the 2nd lady I’ve seen crying today. Is it me, or Feb? #
  • @webchick I WISH I’d win awards for trivial patches—such trivialities are my biggest contributions to open source projects. ;) YAY FOR DOCS! in reply to webchick #
  • @wheelyweb I’ve scoured the @iiNet Toolbox, too. Closest to “cancel” is “Change your ADSL Plan” which sends you to an “Upgrade” form. #FAIL! in reply to wheelyweb #
  • I wonder if Ajaxian’s http://tinyurl.com/d4zj7v on spotting SVG in the wild will make nay-sayers think twice about http://tinyurl.com/792wkq #
  • @wheelyweb I “updated” @iiNet bank acct details to 000-000…+sent support email. I shouldn’t have to talk to a human to end Internet service. in reply to wheelyweb #
  • I’ve so often heard I’m “not emotionally stable” that it’s odd to hear friends describe my recent sobbing as a “#normal emotional response.” #
  • Can’t grok why adding ” to !Laconica’s common_render_content() !regex is SO hard. http://tr.im/gL4R Grr on !PHP for making regexes==strings. #
  • Spicing up #blogging: I’ve shared a Google Doc as a draft post+invited selected contacts to leave comments & #brainstorm w/me. Great so far! #
  • So @iiNet REQUIRES “verbal confirmation” of ending service. What a PITA. Oh yeah…and my cancellation will cost me $200 AUD. Fucking “plans.” #
  • Obama’s speech http://tr.im/gLdL has news anchor @TerryMoran trying to grok @Twitter http://tr.im/gLdM They still say “on my #Twitter page.” #
  • Hm. Obama equates dropping out of high #school with “quitting on your country.” I dropped out of middle school and I MOVED UP a tax bracket. #
  • @sarahfrantz I share my president’s love of learning however I, like #Mark #Twain, have never let my schooling interfere with my #education. in reply to sarahfrantz #
  • Crying one minute. The next, plugging in my headset to speak with my publisher on Skype. This should go well…right? Deep, deep breaths. #sad #
