  • I think it’s impt to remember that NV had a big surplus a few years ago, which we wasted on auto reg refunds. B/c nothing could ever change. #
  • @faziarizvi There are other options, but all bad. We’ve already shut down tons, too, like women’s health and cancer centers at uni hospital. in reply to faziarizvi #
  • @DJYORK OK, but EVERY other utility offers online bill pay. SW Gas uses a 3rd-party e-check svc which they must pay fees for, why not cards? in reply to DJYORK #

  • I love that whenever Jon Stewart goes on Fox News, they compare their journalistic integrity with his. He’s a comedian! #
  • Wondered why the natl news pages of Vegas’ “Seven” mag are pink like the NY Observer. Then noticed their natl news is from the NY Observer. #
  • Congrats to @marseniuk @cmoonreed @PjPerez and everyone I don’t follow for Seven’s debut http://is.gd/7KK8O Looks good so far – shiny, too. #
  • @PokerVixen Absolutely. SO shouldn’t Fox NEWS be ashamed that a show on COMEDY Central is their standard for journalism? in reply to PokerVixen #
  • @skywaterblue Yeah, there was a stack with the CityLifes and Weeklies at the Freakin’ Frog. in reply to skywaterblue #
  • @PokerVixen Again, I absolutely agree. But on Fix, they answer his criticisms saying “But you didn’t do [whatever], either.” Not his job! in reply to PokerVixen #
  • @PjPerez Funny though how crappy a job the editors do without writers… in reply to PjPerez #

  • Had a great time at “Speaking to Las Vegas in the Langauge of Las Vegas”. Great to finally meet @laurennmcc in person! #
  • @mikeyvegas YOu missed both. I don’t twirl tassels or spray glitter. I’m more of a low-key kind of show… in reply to mikeyvegas #
  • @mikeyvegas Oh, you meant the *art* show, I meant the *burlesque dancers* who performed at the art show… in reply to mikeyvegas #
  • @mikeyvegas Sorry. Apprently you watched breasts on the Beeb, though. So you don’t go home empty-handed. in reply to mikeyvegas #

  • What’s on the Horizon for Microsoft Office 2010? http://bit.ly/aW0Bd6 Web apps to be accessible on any smartphone! #
  • Thoughts on Caprica (so far): a) Adama is a nasty piece of work! Lee’s hero-worship 50 yrs later seems a bit misplaced. #
  • Thoughts on Caprica (so far): b) Sam Adama is gay, and it just *is*. Nicely handled. BSG was criticized for its lack of gay relationships. #
  • Thoughts on Caprica (so far): c) Bill lost a sister and mother to monotheistic terrorists. That’s gotta mean something. #
  • Thoughts on Caprica (so far): d) Zoe’s story, which should be the most interesting, is the least compelling so far. Too much teen-y angst? #
  • Thoughts on Caprica (so far): e) Citroen had a hell of a run on Caprica 150,050 years ago. Maybe GM should consider Caprican export market? #
  • Crap, @jzellis is using the same WordPress theme at zenarchery.com that I’m using at dwax.org #

  • @jzellis Yeah, I gathered. Was advised to tease you, actually, but figured, naah. Used to enjoy you in Citylife in bygone days. Next time. in reply to jzellis #

  • @leslieajoy No, there’s an ad on Problogger’s job board, heading is s/th like “Editor for Personal Productivity Blog”. in reply to leslieajoy #
  • Since I know writers have to respond to a ton of ads, a short cover letter and kick-ass writing sample are good. But get my attn, and quick! #
  • The sad part of hiring writers: in the pile are several standouts, many obvious misfits – and some really good writers who just won’t fit. #
  • @Sara_Mooney What? in reply to Sara_Mooney #
  • Is there an online service that lets you create a catalog of your music (discs, digital, lps, etc) like Goodreads, Shelfari, etc for books? #
  • @trxckster THanks, Musicbrainz is neat, but looking more for something where you can record and share your list of music. in reply to trxckster #
  • @leslieajoy Thanks. lib.rario.us is the URL; librarious.com goes to a link farm. It looks a little bare-bones but might be the thing. in reply to leslieajoy #
  • Can anyone in #vegas recommend a good exterminator? I’m in the southwest, in a condo, if that makes a difference. Thanks! #
  • @leslieajoy What I’d really like is to be able to rate and recommend albums/songs, like I can on Goodreads or Shelfari. Catalog + social. in reply to leslieajoy #
  • @leslieajoy I’m kind of shocked that there’s no “goto” site already out there. Seems like a no-brainer. in reply to leslieajoy #
  • @PodWorx Thanks, I’ll give them a call. in reply to PodWorx #
