Supermarket vanquished, but missed bus by 2 minutes. Twitterverse, keep my entertained!

plowing through 1,522 unread emails (after being OOO 2 days). And those are just the stuff I don’t already filter into “To be deleted”

access to gmail timing out…
I thought following the dpreview Nikon lens forum via RSS would be a potent source of luls, but it turns out it’s mostly depressing
how ironic that Twitter confirms that gmail is down…
Gmail: “We’re aware of a problem with Gmail affecting a small subset of users. “ - if by small you mean NZ, UK, and Sweden, then sure
here’s Google’s definition of the entire world as “a small subset”, recorded for posterity: http://is.gd/kEjq

testing TweetDeck, wishing it had identi.ca support!
man TweetDeck is the Twitter client for nerds. Of course, so far it’s the best client ever!

err TweetDeck notification window? Please get the fsck out of my way, pronto
