@m3nd3s I don't know yet. I haven't gotten around to looking into my open source projectsNow I know how to look younger. Thanks http://t.co/oniPAm43c5! http://t.co/d2X9REN6EB
Retweeted by Ryan Bates@cwgem Obviously the Matrix isn't real.e.g. Obviously I need to mow the lawn to keep it short. Obviously I need to wake up to exercise. Obviously my cat can't make a website.Exercise: Make a statement starting with "Obviously ..." and then ask "Why is that?"why was vi scared of vii? because vii viii ix!!!

introducing Friends: a p2p, decentralized, secure messaging platform http://t.co/gybdVlrMfn made it over the weekend http://t.co/tupE5e17qf
Retweeted by Ryan BatesI wish I had read "Don't make me think" by Steve Krug years ago when I went to art school and paid hundreds of thousands to study design
Retweeted by Ryan Bates@hookipaa thanks!
This online interactive SQL tutorial looks awesome: http://t.co/mb7isKcpaI (SQL is a HUGE asset to have in your toolset.)

@anno @mbleigh Twitter and Facebook are the latest culprits but I have seen this more and more lately.@rbates hard mode: some checkboxes will be arbitrarily inverted to opt-in instead of opt-out
Retweeted by Ryan BatesLet's play a game called "Uncheck 20 boxes for different ways we can email you." And then when we add more you get to play this game again.@cdiddy42 I do hope to start screencasting again, but unsure exactly how that will look.
@thomasfuchs out of curiosity since I have been gone, who said it wouldn't fail if one crashes?i don't see how unless there is redundancy.@rntaylor75 thanks!
@davidhopkinson thanks!For those who went to #RailsConf this year, what was your favorite part/talk?
So @KentBeck and I are totally BFFs http://t.co/OJU1zX8OwG
Retweeted by Ryan Bates@myfoolishness thanks@jbgutierrez glad to help! I do hope to start screencasting again, but it is hard to say exactly when that will be or how it looks like.Big congrats to this year's Ruby Heroes: @n0kada @sarahmei @samsaffron @_zzak @jeremyevans0 @eileencodes ❤️❤️❤️
Retweeted by Ryan Bates@searls watched your talk on stream, great job!@nodunayo @AdamCuppy haha! Too bad I missed it.my railsconf keynote will be live streamed at 1710 EDT here: https://t.co/4sHb2i8v5Y. you have 7.5 hours to pop popcorn and stuff.
Retweeted by Ryan Bates@jcavena you have an awesome kid.
@robbyrussell strange the same thing happened to me. What's going on.@vircung no, maybe when they get built in support
The American date format, created by me it was.
Retweeted by Ryan BatesMoney saving tip: whenever you want to buy something, first wait a week. Often you will forget about it or realize you don't need it.Some creative street art: http://t.co/rIOPiTjfgl
@sandelius there used to be one. Not sure if it is still live.@andypike I haven't found any good tutorials. The trickiest part for me was learning what blocks get powered in different scenariosWorking on some redstone. http://t.co/CiXxzfupxT@tenderlove glad you're alright! <3
@effekt I plan to answer this questions some more soon. Possibly through RailsCasts@DavidEsmale @cmaxw it was a casual private conversation. Nothing too interesting. :)
@tenderlove I am afraid to visit my Animal Crossing town.@tenderlove have you been playing anything in particular on DS lately?@cmaxw I have only dabbled with game development. Nothing serious, but maybe sometime.@cmaxw thanks for asking, it was good to chat with you and catch up@chacon the best secrets are those you tweet.@qrush @willmanduffy I agree, GBA SP rocked. It's like the Super Nintendo of handhelds.@bketelsen @GopherCon I try to limit my number of conferences but will check it out@kurechii great job on Tiny Guardians. It is a lot of fun!I won't make it out to RailsConf this year, but I certainly hope to next year.@qrush is the Minecraft server survival only? How many members?@qrush I won't make it out to RailsConf this year@davidsouthard thanks!@davidsouthard I haven't focused on my open source projects yet but plan to.@searls :)@qrush looks like Sim City, cool!I found a gif of @coreyhaines tweeting http://t.co/a8LAnINbAm
Retweeted by Ryan Bates@amyhoy for a moment I forgot wallpaper is a real thing and not something you put on a desktop or phone.I have no desire to reinvent the wheel, only other things which don't work as well.@marclameu thanks!Programming is easy until you start typing. And then it's hard.@thomasfuchs love the background. Now I want to play Link to the Past.Is there a good machine learning book that doesn't slam one in the face with tons of math right off the bat? Haven't seen a good one yet!
Retweeted by Ryan Bates
@fladamd I haven't but will check it out, thanks@CelsoDeSa thanks@samurailink3 thanks!Watching some entertaining D&D live #CriticalRole http://t.co/TErHHJEMBY@Keloran yeah, payment is getting there but I want it for other things@applerebel @18F I think I would go crazy with the red tape that comes with government work.Instead of handing out personal, sensitive information, provide a unique token that a trusted source translates behind the scenes.I want an OAuth system for my phone number, mailing address, and credit cards with the ability to grant/deny access and change in one spot.@coreyhaines @sarahmei so many kitties! How many sardines are you bringing in a day?@kjswartz04 welcome, that's awesome!
@sarahmei me too thanks to @coreyhaines!@syedsarmadsabih hello, glad they helped!@robbyrussell and if it's Hulu you get to rewatch commercials.@bluescrn any chance for a Skyriders sequel or expansion? Love that game.Re-playing through Skyriders. It's a couple years old but still one of my favorite iOS games.@DigitalLawyer @tgaeta thanks for the heads up. I will look into it.Cool "code bubbles" style navigation and editing system for Visual Studio. Pretty amazing stuff! http://t.co/j6I48qSHbd
Retweeted by Ryan Bates@redhatpro @steveklabnik I should have grabbed the .net and .org variations when I started but unfortunately didn't :/
