Hilarious - Ellen on the “Internet Password Minder”
About a year ago, Posterous was acquired by Twitter. A month ago, it was announced that it will be completely shut down by April 30th. I’ll spare you my rant about how the awesome customer service that characterized Posterous pre-acquisition completely disappeared after the acquisition :)
On a more practical note, Posterous’ closing meant finding a new place to host my blogs. There are many options (you can find many of them described in the posthaven.com migration guide), but I decided to go the DIY way and move my blogs to Octopress, hosted on GitHub Pages.
I’ll post shortly a guide on how I did the migration, but for now I just want to post a first “Welcome” message here. If you are reading this message, you are in the correct place, whether it’s the website or the RSS feed (I updated my FeedBurner feed to point to the new site, so if you are subscribed to it, you shouldn’t have to do anything). All the old contents has been migrated, and links to my blog posts should work unchanged.
There are still a few rough edges (some pages are still in the old site theme), I’m still working on the migration of some parts of the site. Please let me know if you find anything broken.
I would like to challenge you to attempt to emulate their dam project any dam time and/or any dam place you choose. I believe I can safely state there is no dam way you could ever match their dam skills, their dam resourcefulness, their dam ingenuity, their dam persistence, their dam determination and/or their dam work ethic.
Amazing letter - read the whole thing, it’s incredibly funny.
At 16:02 UTC, Friday, May 25, 2012, the SpaceX Dragon officially became the first privately-owned commercial spacecraft to be captured by and berthed at the International Space Station. It is (if I’ve done the math correctly) the 114th spacecraft to dock with ISS, including the missions sent up to build the station. It is the first privately-owned commercial spacecraft in history to do so.
