@hadleyjf You should setup a blue moon group on Flickr and add your photos there, as well as ask others to. I don’t think 1 exists yet!
3x more Ning networks created in 2009 than 2010. Another exponential growth trend.. http://ow.ly/RwF7
New prescription from after-hours doc got my MIL’s blood pressure down - no ER trip needed. The miracle of modern meds.
@raysadad not sure if I have seen any Yahoo service specific iPhone apps besides ones for Flickr. Maybe their APIs are closed?
@bobbylehew you are most welcome! I am amazed it’s functionality is better than the GR web app, with speed! I am considering the pro vers.
My mother in law is headed to the doctor tonight for dangerously high blood pressure. Not sure if she’ll be referred to the ER or not.

@k_shelton what’s your take on both the James situation and Knight?
@k_shelton Overall I am opposed to the free pass we seem to give successful coaches for inappropriate language and behavior.
@k_shelton I don’t know all the details on the Knight deal but I think it’s ridiculous he was allowed to hand the empire to his son.

@chrislehmann as a TTU grad and fan -from what I’ve read so far, I am glad Leach is being held accountable for his actions
I wish a developer would create an iPhone app for Yahoo Notebook!
@jed you are most welcome of course! Always glad to tip my hat to you, Tech Yoda of Oklahoma :-)
I am really liking the MobileRSS iPhone app - syncs to Google Reader, faster than using Google Reader mobile I think. Free too.

@shareski interesting. My 9 year old is not impressed with Hulu, however. No iCarly. I think it is pretty incredible. Sorry it is blocked 4u
@PeterVogel good point - I figured the moon ring was a direct result of ice crystals and atmospheric conditions
@susanettenheim very cool - so glad you saw it too!
Awesome moon ring tonight! Well worth getting out in the cold to see.
@shareski strange - Pandora works fine on my iPhone - is it an account login issue?

RT @shareski: FYI Saskatchewan teachers make $80,000 for 15 yrs and a Masters. Ontario teachers avg. $88,000 at the top end.
@metalsigns4u Yes, it was well worth it - hope to see it again at least 1 more time in the theater.

@OklaBrett thanks :-) Merry Christmas to you too!
@DJ345 news is saying we received 12 inches of snow in Edmond, 14 in OKC. All time record for most snow in 1 storm! Woo hoo!
Finally shut down our Christmas Eve front yard snowstorm Ustream. Had a little over 150 viewers all day. Snow finally stopped too.
@DJ345 not sure exactly but I guess 8 inches of snow
@elmofromok I am sure it did! We were missing my old 4Runner and its 4WD today :-)

@woscholar we’ll use the flash camera and try to capture some of the runs for posterity! :-)
@woscholar yes, it should be better tomorrow when the ice sheet under the snow is hard and the runner sleds have that ice base!
@wdeihl excellent, glad you could tune in. I was disappointed the iPhone UStream viewer app just shows featured and “popular” shows….
We’ve been Ustreaming our snowstorm here in Oklahoma all day - I bet we have 6 inches already and lots more falling! http://bit.ly/6QWzYW

@woscholar Well, a 60 lb beaver should be pretty easy2 distinguish from a house cat. Silly that reporters characterized this as “an attack.”
@NewsOK How has the response been to your sale of “subscriptions” to view articles over 60 days old? Personally I find this very frustrating
@deangroom well, unfortunately things like WP updates never seem to get done at earlier hours of the day for me. Glad it’s over for awhile!

#wordpress auto update is SO fast compared to my slow FTP upload from home. All 9 WP blogs now running 2.9. 7 of 9 updated with auto-update.
@saeedrahman I did make a backup of my main blog this time… and I used the auto-update for 7 of my 9 blogs. Worked without a hitch. :-)
@bcrosby interesting… I wonder how those calculations are made? Too bad Starbucks is not honoring gift cards connected to the site :-)
