What a joy this morning 2install an old 250 GB hard drive in my wife’s 1st gen MacBook & find “it just works” - fast & perfect. Yeah Apple!

Waiting at the Vet with Rachel for Bailey (13 year old golden) to get back from X-ray. Hasn’t eaten in 2 days. We’re both on our iOS devices
Seems silly Amazon just lets you load out a Kindle book ONE time! http://mashable.com/2010…
Please disregard that old @edmodo webinar tweet (which I just deleted) - I should have checked the date 1st!
@ScratchEdTeam Thanks for posting/sharing our discussion about Scratch! And thanks for all your great advocacy work- what a great community!
It’s all for creativity and making what you think it should do and just running wild and exploring-(Rachel about Scratch) http://ow.ly/3vYOM
@vanishingpoint I REALLY love that 11” MBair tho… Maybe someday…
@vanishingpoint Yep, I decided I needed the larger hard drive and bigger horses for video stuff - like the ustream/webcasting today.
Went to see “Narnia: The Voyage of the Dawn Treader” tonight with the whole family. GREAT movie!!! http://ow.ly/3vYGm
My clean re-install of all my Mac OS X apps on a new MB Pro continues… http://ow.ly/3vV2q
@tiffanythompson thanks - it was fun teaching w them today. They really enjoyed it too I think, and it helps them develop their preso skills
@dmantz7 yes, I’m going to have to look at other options. I didn’t use the Hue much, was able to use iDemo/Screensplittr on the iPhone a lot

@stephenksu I have dabbled with Livestream a little, but have a ton of hours logged with Ustream. I’ve had very good luck with it.
@fisher1000 What’s the link to your iPad livebinder?
@fisher1000 please do! :-)

@tonyvincent Thanks SO MUCH for the tip on using iGlasses to rotate a webcam image. I think I’m set for tomorrow now thanks to you! :-)
@TParks outstanding! I’m going to try KidBlog with my UCO preservice teachers this term I think. Considering 1 section with EduBlogs too.
It’s ridiculous how many cables, cameras, and accessories I have squirreled away in different places… it’s like living in a Radio Shack…
I’ve been fruitlessly combing through my electronic gear looking for a firewire doc camera I bought from @tonyvincent a few years ago…
@mpondu you are most welcome - I definitely think Chrome is the fastest browser available. I like fast :-)
@bryanhughes agreed. People are always hugely disappointed to learn that is not a built-in feature…
1 of Sarah’s friends got a new iPod Touch for Christmas - she was Facetime videoconferencing with a friend in VA today. Must be almost 2011.
The transfer speeds on firewire 800 are just AMAZING. So much better than USB 2, and yes as you’d think… twice better than Firewire400 :-)
@JSW_EdTech I thought long and hard about the MB Air, but I need the larger hard drive size at this point…
@JSW_EdTech no, I went for the 500 GB 7200 drive.
New laptop hard drive name: Glamdring http://ow.ly/3vqvD (I started giving computers & devices unique names as a 4th grade teacher)
New MB Pro arrived, it’s smokin’ fast. Unfortunately Migration Assistant failed me. Full clean install of apps underway http://ow.ly/3vqtt
@markwagner congrats! are you going for the iPad too? Did you use the Dev team’s tool or another method?
@cheryloakes50 Glad to hear you and your family are fine at Sugarloaf. I saw that news and immediately thought of you all.
We need a hash tag for tweets relating directly to Oklahoma education. How about #okedu ? Other suggestions?
RT @bob05: What are some of your favorite TED talks? Links if you could please.
@bcrosby I’ve read and heard a lot that support the Verizon iPhone rumor for early 2011. I’d bet on it.

@abendelow I generally use compfight.com for CC licensed photos, but these posts go back to 2004, many were licensed CC NC
@PeterVogel Not sure - I’d like to know more behind how that was developed, assumptions which it makes, etc…
I’ve been removing images from my forthcoming @bookbrewer book on school reform, not licensed for commercial re-use. Pretty time consuming!
I’m glad to see the School 2.0 website has a bandwidth calculator tool - I wonder how many principals have used it? http://ow.ly/3u1NH
@aforgrave It definitely will be interesting to see how the Mac app store changes things… some features of it certainly sound appealing
I’ve updated my comprehensive list of Mac OS X applications http://ow.ly/3tZuz (70 listed- update is in advance of a new laptop SW install!)

@Animoto Why doesn’t the Animoto video I created with my iPhone app show up when I login to my account online? :-(

@cogdog I’m listening & I agree. Power of tools like delicious & diigo is the community. No community = no power
Today is our annual @storychasers winter board retreat! Lots of good plannin’ & brainstormin’ going on! :-)
@kentbrooks ok, I can visit later this pm
Just saw tonight 1 of my classmates from 6th grade put our class photo on Facebook - that was a blast from the past :-)
@SamGliksman thanks :-)
@mguhlin I would think so - haven’t run into anything yet I couldn’t install on siteground…
@newfirewithin no problem, glad the cached version is there. I’ll have to investigate what happened. I wonder if other posts are missing?!
@karlfisch I’d hope as many people as are invested in Delicious there will be someone out there who will keep it alive… good point.
