@rrodgers Did you get the $185 price for the Dell Inspiron 9? I heard that was the President’s Day special price. Did you go with Ubuntu?
Boarding for our flight was delayed and is going VERY slowly… Still haven’t called my row yet. Hopefully I won’t be at the very front…
@mrw00dy do you know any kids 7-9 years old in NZ who would want to participate? I definitely know a 9 year old Oklahoman who is “in!” :-)
@mrw00dy I think a collaborative NZ / Oklahoma cooking show would be fantastic! We could have themes and record separately or together…
Boarding my flight to Los Angeles now. 12 hours of fun coming up…

Now I’m in Auckland waiting for my flight to Rotorua which leaves in 1.5 hours. Hopefully this flight will be on schedule!
Two of my flights to Rotorua have been cancelled today due to “engineering problems.” Glad those problems were not discovered in flight!

@whitechrisf1 I just did a search for Twitter in Facebook after I logged in, and the integration app was the first search result.
@datruss interesting. I guess I am not sure how to differentiate my FB and twitter audience. I think there is big overlap. Not positive tho.
At what point will using Facebook cause users’ brains to explode due to information overload?
Just added the Twitter application to my Facebook, so my facebook status should update with twitter now. Hopefully.
