On meeting @torchyboy

One of the highlights of my trip to the UK last weekend was meeting @torchyboy – the fabulous man about Twitter, who manages to be funny, interesting, and interactive.

Torchy! is on the right.

Now I’ve shamelessly flirted with him for a long time – and even received, last summer, an autographed photo featuring […]

Lisa Rausch at Denver’s Rose Medical Center is a poor Supervisor of Case Management.

Call this my case study of complaining about Twitter, part two. As you might recall, it took complaining on Twitter to get customer service out of Telekom, but in the end, I became happy, and, after having a second problem resolved, Telekom is rapidly moving off my list of companies with customer service issues.

Now […]

Customer Service Woes resolved with Twitter. Part 1: T-Mobile, Germany

I have to say that I am a bit disappointed in customer service, on both sides of the Atlantic. Although I’m not sure I can call the North American issue, “customer service”—but more on that in a day or two.

Meanwhile I have happy news to report: my iPhone 3G is, finally, unlocked.

On The Road Again.

I’ve kind of sworn off blogging when I’m too busy or too tired to put something coherent together, but this is an exception because I might be awake and coherent tonight, but I’m not sure my Internet will be.

A Meta-Post

So I’ve sort of hinted at it now and then, and after a great deal of work, usually involving cut-and-pasting, I’ve created the archives section of this website and fixed up a number of things with the main site.

The new TQE | Archives section of the site includes stuff that used to be available […]

Multicasting Overload

I have to admit it: I’m addicted to the Internet—and the current version is even better than the one that I first started exploring back in the mid 1990s.

My first web browser, for the record, was Netscape. If you remember the version with the throbbing N, that’s the first one I ever used.

Today […]

Twitter Notes


Plane has technical fault- problem with a battery charger. KLM pilot came out & apologized. Problem already fixed. >>

Results in @KLM, @GoodPilotNews, and @visitholland following you.

Social M/Tedia

It’s been awhile since I’ve gone all meta on you, so I hope you’ll excuse me when I start talking about social media and “friends”.

First off, I’m in the process of updating my iPhone to the newest Firmware that appears to have been released last night. It’s 246.4 MB of software goodness which will […]

Carrot Cake

Homemade Carrot Cake is the best.

And why this is it for the blog today.

Have you twittered me yet?
