This just went up to Apple’s Website today… I couldn’t be more thrilled and proud right now
October 24, 2008
Apple is publicly opposing Proposition 8 and making a donation of $100,000 to the No on 8 campaign. Apple was among the first California companies to offer equal rights and benefits to our employees’ same-sex partners, and we strongly believe that a person’s fundamental rights — including the right to marry — should not be affected by their sexual orientation. Apple views this as a civil rights issue, rather than just a political issue, and is therefore speaking out publicly against Proposition 8.
So i’ve got twitter tools up and connected to my blog.. Right now its configured to post in both directions – each time I post on my blog it updates on twitter and once a day it posts to my blog a summary of all of my tweets.. I don’t think I like the daily summary though – the tweets seem kind of random on the blog… THere is a tweet summary on the right hand side of the blog that I think is going to have to do…
anyway – thats what those random posts were… if ya wanna follow my tweets just go directly to twitter… (www.twitter.com/swimfinssf)
Hey all…. If any of you are trying to register on my blog to post or post comments please send me an email first to warn me. I’ve gotten a few registration requests lately with I email addresses I don’t recognize. Since being registered lets you see things others can’t i’m kind of careful about who I approve..
now back to your regularly scheduled programming
*sigh*… After quite a few hours of poking around and trying to figure out why I can’t get my Mac or Windoze in Bootcamp to talk to my new spiffy Series 3 TiVo I FINALLY figured it out… Seems the new Series 3 TiVos don’t support TiVoToGo so I can’t pull programs off of it… Grrr… Wish I’d read the forums before spending all of this time debugging (or, frankly before I’d bought it)… Its a pretty big drag that the latest greatest TiVo doesn’t support some of the coolest features and it didn’t really occur to me that it wouldn’t.. According to the TiVo forums its in process and should be coming soon but that was some time ago.. Ah well – this one is still much cooler than my old tivo which didn’t do any of this stuff so I guess I shouldn’t bitch.. But still a drag..
One of the things I struggle with constantly is how much I can post on here due to the public nature of the blog. This stuff is open to pretty much everyone who dances into it which, while cool most of the time, proves a problem when I wanna talk about ‘pete stuff’ that I don’t want everyone to be privy to. While I love that friends, family, co-workers, and the rest of the world read my blog from time to time – some content isn’t always something I want everyone to read. (I think my boss would admit that too much information on my personal life isn’t always a good thing! )
What does that mean to you? All it means is if ya want to see some of the private stuff you have to register. All you have to do is click on the Register link on the right hand side. It’ll send you a login and password when ya register. You can change the password from there. Once you register I’ll set your privs so ya can see the appropriate stuff.
I promise to keep the hidden stuff to a minimum but a girl’s gotta have her secrets! hehe
