Twittering Terrorists

10.27.08 | 2 Comments

That was a headline of some article i didn’t pay much attention to in my iGoogle. Anyways, it provides the perfect transition to a discussion of Twitter and my failed (lack of) attempt(s) at using this blog to capture personal, daily events.

side bar: Could I have just labeled the post Twitter? Yes. But what fun would that be?

back to the main stage

So, yeah, there isn’t much to say aside from the fact that producing truly private posts is more difficult than it should be, and is not sustainable from a development standpoint.

side bar: Lily Allen is annoying me right now, so if I seem cranky, there you go.

So Twitter? Yeah, Twitter. Leo made me sign up for it the other day, and although I’m still going through the motions (honestly haven’t used it much at all), I think it’d be an interesting way of capturing daily events. The obvious gotcha being privacy, but meh. Anyways, between that, and possibly making use of the Facebook status message, I think there’s a possibility of harvesting that information for self-development purposes. I’m contemplating turning this into a larger scale project so I’m holding back on details.

I guess you came all this way for nothing. Huzzah! Disappointment…

    , to get 20D, you don’t actually need the anwser to 25D (duo). The first word of the clue (coupling) will do just as well. And maybe that’s how DA used it.Maybe in cases where there is a REAL link (rather than merely a superfluous SURFACE link), this link is never to the actual ANSWER of the subsequent clue, but merely to the first WORD or WORDS of that clue. Can anyone provide an example where the actual ANSWER was required?On the subject of the inconsistent use of ellipses mentioned above, Peter Biddlecombe (in the link I included above) suggests it rarely happens. This is what he says about ellipses (the next three paras are all from Peter Biddlecombe): Ellipsis is the fancy name for the three dots sometimes used to end a sentence (and ellipses is the plural of this word, as well as of ellipse ). Sometimes, one clue ends with an ellipsis and the next one starts with one. The most common reason is that the surface meanings of the two clues are related in such a way that joining them in this way makes them look connected. It usually turns out, however, that the two clues work just as they would have done without this device.Sometimes, the two clues overlap. For instance, you may need to use the first one or two words of the second clue as part of the first one. I can only recall seeing one pair of clues where both extended past the ellipsis into the other member of the pair.At the time of writing, Guardian setters seem to be running an unofficial competition to see who can join the most successive If you see sets of three or more clues with ellipses, the third and later clues in the set may continue from the first clue, not the second.
