Diane (Yip)

I can barely keep up with my family of 4. I don't know how you all do it. The last thing I need is to know what everyone I'm not responsible for is doing! Facebook status lines are good enough for me. Twitter on techies! :)


First off, let me say, you have a great first name.

Secondly, nice blog.

Thirdly, thanks for all these awesome tips. Now I'm stuck on Tweetdeck.



I am STILL trying to figure this out. I tried to send a message from my phone. I got a message back asking for my name, and I really don't know if I put my full name on there or not, or if it wanted the userid? Anyway, I don't think it worked.

Are you using Twitter for your facebook? Or is that totally separate? I just thought I remember you or someone saying they were using it or getting a message or something.

Hopefully I add something worthwhile to your facebook once in a great while. LOL

I have noticed that you post less on here now, though. I kinda miss that. More in depth.


Ooooh ... I've been looking forward to this article. I've been using tweetdeck for the last 3 or 4 weeks and it's pretty okay. Of course, I don't follow hundreds of people because I'm sane ... mostly. I'm especially looking forward to your "secret spy way" post. Anything "spy" is gonna gain extra "cool" points.


Excellent post Mark. I was wondering how you were going to pull it off.

I have been using Spaz for Twitter, it's open source so I can customize the code. I like it better than Tweetdeck since you can customize the interface using simple HTML and CSS.

The version I am using has rollover twitpic. I just roll over the link and it shows the picture without having to click twitpic links.

I will send you a screenshot in email.

    What's in my CD player

    • R.E.M. -

      R.E.M.: Accelerate CD/DVD
      Athens' own return with a trashy cool offering - their most consistent album in years. I think they're mad at their dad or something (****)

    • The Rolling Stones -

      The Rolling Stones: Shine a Light: Original Soundtrack
      This is what a live album SHOULD sound like. Unedited, unfixed - just a good recording of what happened that night... (****)

    • Mudcrutch -

      Mudcrutch: Mudcrutch
      Tom Petty and Mike Campbell reunite with their old band and forge an instant classic. (****)

    • Counting Crows -

      Counting Crows: Saturday Nights & Sunday Mornings
      It was pretty gutsy to lay it out the way they did: all the rockers on the "Saturday Night" section and all the ballads on the "Sunday Morning" side. But it works, and in a major way. Some of the best guitar work I've heard in recent memory. (*****)

    • The Black Crowes -

      The Black Crowes: The Lost Crowes
      WHY DIDN'T ANYBODY TELL ME ABOUT THIS RECORD?! You've heard most of these songs on other records, but it's just so raw and band-y here. Fall in love with the best band in the world all over again... (*****)

    • Pillar -

      Pillar: For The Love Of The Game
      So far this is the album to beat for the rock album of 2008 in the Christian market... The title track has kind of been my "theme song" the last couple of months. (*****)

    • Maylene and the Sons of Disaster -

      Maylene and the Sons of Disaster: II
      The perfect blend of Southern rock and metal - this is my favorite album right now. (*****)

    • Kevn Kinney -

      Kevn Kinney: Broken Hearts & Auto Parts
      I picked this up in Athens the other day. It starts out a little slow, but turns into vintage Kevn Kinney/Drivin n Cryin. This is as good as anything he/they have ever put out! (****)

    • The Black Crowes -

      The Black Crowes: Warpaint
      If you look up "killer" in the dictionary, you will find a picture of these guys.

    • Baroness -

      Baroness: Red Album
      So far the most original and inspiring music I've heard this year... (*****)

    • Down -

      Down: Down - Over The Under
      This is easily the most rockin' records I've ever owned. It's like redneck Soundgarden. Heaven for a dude like me... (*****)

    • Demon Hunter -

      Demon Hunter: Storm the Gates of Hell
      Don't let the "metalcore" label fool you. This album features some of the biggest and hookiest choruses you'll ever hear. "Lead Us Home", "Carry Me Down", and "Thorns" are great examples. Plus I think they'll give you your money back if the title track doesn't make your ears bleed :) (*****)
