  • We're making "@ProfHacker pork" for dinner tonight: http://bit.ly/4s5ICH. #
  • I've just posted my new mp3 of the week: the glo-fi, bedroom pop of Washed Out: http://bit.ly/2mqEU7. #music #
  • Got some quick grading done. Time to write a quick something or other about music, I think. #
  • @boonebgorges How's the Brunswick stew? That's always what I want to know. in reply to boonebgorges #
  • @allsongs Mates of State. (Since you love them, Bob.) in reply to allsongs #
  • Tools for integrating live tweets into a PowerPoint presentation: http://bit.ly/3thRpp. Appears to be Windows only, but worth checking out. #
  • @barbarahui False advertising. I clicked on "Idaho," and it didn't take me there. in reply to barbarahui #
  • Dear University of Idaho: 1997 called and wants its site map back: http://bit.ly/3PDsva. #jobmarket #
  • @barbarahui Touche. Would *love* to be back in Southern California. in reply to barbarahui #
  • The rain has disrupted pumpking patching for the day. #
  • @barbarahui But what temperature is it at Starbucks there? in reply to barbarahui #
  • @snicholson That would be an awesome talk to hear! in reply to snicholson #
  • Starbucks was nice and raised the temperature for a bit. But I apparently haven't purchased enough as they're waging a freeze campaign again #
  • New at @ProfHacker: "Scheduling 101: Using Jiffle to Schedule Appointments with Students," by @GeorgeOnline: http://bit.ly/1EJ4mP #
  • @dancohen Are you waving again? in reply to dancohen #
  • One of the amazing things about #jobmarket is spending time on other schools' dept pages. And seeing how *many* adjuncts there are. #
  • It's time for me to purchase something else from Starbucks, I think. Only seems fair. #
  • @amndw2 Librarian? in reply to amndw2 #
  • I know that I should be over finding humor in how people order at Starbucks. But I'm not. #
  • Applying to places like Biola and Baylor, I wonder what levels/forms of (non)religiosity disqualify one from consideration. #jobmarket #
  • Job list is up for the day. And there are exactly zero jobs for me this week. #jobmarket #
  • New at @ProfHacker: while we await the library search interface to come, @nmhouston explains using LOC subject headings http://bit.ly/4yi1OF #
  • I'm seeing more departments asking only for letter and vita up front. Good for them. #jobmarket #
  • Thanks to all those jobs getting axed last year, my letter writing process has been simplified. Many jobs are back. Copy/paste. #jobmarket #
  • I'm pleased to discover that @emusic now has Do Make Say Think's catalog. #music #
  • Applying to my alma mater. #jobmarket #
  • Hmm. MLA's job list hasn't been updated for today yet. #jobmarket #
  • @jbj Does it just say, "All of it"? in reply to jbj #
  • @boonebgorges Sufjan's version? Or the live version? in reply to boonebgorges #
  • Beginning work on a talk that I'm doing with a good friend in two weeks. Remembering I'm more than just a teacher. And that I can't write. #
  • Also, this Starbucks table doesn't play nice with my mouse. #
  • After being a nice warm haven for working on Monday, Starbucks has decided to freeze me out again. I need a portable office. #
  • I don't believe I tweeted once yesterday. Let's see if I can make up for that today. After all, it's my day to work on #jobmarket stuff. #
  • @amandafrench Oh, I understand. Am constantly amazed when I have to teach directory structure. And I'm glad they're comfy enough to learn. in reply to amandafrench #
  • @amandafrench If they can't unzip files, should they be in a Digital History class? #justsayin in reply to amandafrench #
  • A public Google Wave about videogame studies and pedagogy started by @samplereality and @zachwhalen: http://bit.ly/2UNhja #
  • I have nothing and everything to say about Milton's Paradise Lost. #classprep #
  • @TenuredRadical Looks like you left one real name in the post at the bottom of the last paragraph. in reply to TenuredRadical #
  • @johnmjones That tweet wins. Period. in reply to johnmjones #
  • A fabulous Flickr CC Attribution Helper script for Greasemonkey by @cogdog: http://bit.ly/Vs0ho (via @boonebgorges on @profhacker) #
  • #Jobmarket ad: "Other benefits include…university housing (long waiting list)." Guess I won't be moving to Taiwain. http://bit.ly/2k2xvb #
  • This is also a great day for #music: new Atlas Sound, El Perro del Mar, Bell Horses, and Fuck Buttons. #
  • Just got home from my long day. Discovered that Apple *did* drop new stuff. Wonder what you all said about it. Too tired to find out. #
  • @samplereality I too liked @foundhistory's hack, but how would it differ from your WordPress plugin? #
  • Listened to a @digitalcampus and two @allsongs on my commute this morning. #
  • Finished Milton and a post for @profhacker with @acavender, so I guess I should start planning my other class. The night is young! #
  • Google Voice has the *hardest* time transcribing voicemails left by people with southern accents. #
  • @rusackas But thanks for the input. It's appreciated. in reply to rusackas #
  • @rusackas I normally have bought APC, but this seems cheaper. Overkill can happen when I don't have $. in reply to rusackas #
  • @rusackas No. in reply to rusackas #
  • @paulbrown Thanks. in reply to paulbrown #
  • Now that more people are on, I'll try this again: is this overkill for an 24" iMac and peripherals? http://bit.ly/19Jjhk #
  • @academicdave World domination, is what I was thinking. Same thing, then. in reply to academicdave #
  • Callobarting with @academicdave, @johnmjones, and @mkgold again. Using the Web for what is was intended. #
  • Wondering how well the Clear WiMax service works in Atlanta or elsewhere. Anyone have experience? #
  • @jcmeloni Congratulations! That's key. I'm very glad to have something coming out too. ALR turned it down, but American Imago said "yes." in reply to jcmeloni #
  • And with that, I'm back to Milton. Have I mentioned recently that I'm an Americanist? #classprep #
  • And the first applications are out the door. You've been served notice, MIT. #jobmarket #
  • At my third location this morning. First library was freezing and had sirens going off. Second library was freezing & had no wifi. Sbux FTW. #
  • So…I have 7 letters of recommendation. How many should I be sending with #jobmarket applications, do you think? #
  • Help me Twitter: is this overkill for an 24" iMac and peripherals? http://bit.ly/19Jjhk #
  • @claremummer Thanks for this suggestion. I've been wondering about grabbing it since @pitchforkmedia's review. in reply to claremummer #
  • Okay, so it was literally freezing in Georgia this morning. But that doesn't explain why this library is freezing too. #
