  • Reading about grilling Porterhouse. The discussion following this recipe is awesome: #
  • I wonder why Twitter Tools only posted one of yesterday’s tweets to my blog. #
  • Grilled Porterhouse steaks. Went extremely well. Family stuffed. Eating Pocky now. #
  • On the Twitter Tools issue I mentioned: I checked the WordPress DB and the tweets are stored there. Maybe it will ‘catch up’ tonight. #
  • Cool! Color your car with a tape that protects your paint job and lasts for 4 years. #
  • RSS Bandit can synchronize with NewsGator or Google Reader. I wonder if that code could be repurposed to sync NewsGator with Google Reader. #
  • Maybe there will be an XBox phone soon. Pro: Chat/highscore/multiplayer in the form of XBox Live. Cons: No independent games. Loud fan. #
  • Seriously, there should be XBox Live style functionality built into the iPhone SDK. Maybe in v3? #
  • By the way, Braid for the 360 is an incredible game. #
  • Applied electricbob’s patch to Twitter Tools. Future tweets should be blogged on the correct day. #
  • Reverted electricbob’s patch. Will manually update posts until an official fix is available. #

  • Getting ready to pick up my Mom from the airport. Why no iPhone flight status app? #
  • Can’t find Andrew “Bunny” Huang on twitter. 😦 #
  • Thinking of picking up pizza for dinner from BJ’s Brewhouse in San Bruno. Great stuff. #
  • I’m sure olympic fencing is exciting for the participants and an informed audience. To me, though, it isn’t as exciting as I’d hoped. #
  • Trying to downgrade from 2.1 beta 2 to 2.01. Tried once before and couldn’t get the phone to connect to AT&T, but maybe this time…. #
  • I’d like to be able to access my Firefox browsing history from my iPhone. #
  • 3 tries downgrading from iPhone 2.1beta2 to iPhone 2.01 did not work. Now running 2.1beta3. #

Fuelly: Google Analytics for your Car

A few minutes ago at the Start 08 conference, Matt Haughey got on stage and demoed/launched It’s a social network around cars, mileage, etc. Seems timely and useful.

Twitter discussion is here.

Seems to be pretty solid. My profile is here.

Some quick notes from the presentation:

  • “I’m a big no-funding guy.”
  • Mobile version available (good call)
  • Coming soon: nike+ style challenges, API, i18n, facebook app, openid, car sharing, group formation/discussion.
  • Available now: Threads, trends, activity screen, filter to friends, calculate savings with small changes
  • It’s built on the metafilter code.
  • Built with 2 people, a few weeks, $1000.


Update: Looks like comments are starting on Metafilter, Digg and the Fuelly forums.
