"Holy interplanetary yardstick" is from the third-season episode "The Joker's Flying Saucer." Robin exclaimed it in response to a description of little green men "three feet tall." It's a really stupid quote to use on the packaging, but it is from the TV series.

Apple's Migration Assistant is copying stuff from the old MacBook to a new MacBook Pro. Files are still moving, but completion in "Less than a minute" has been promised for about 15 minutes now. Such a tease, when I want to drive my new machine! :)

The opening gag in this episode is a take-off on this ad: Salvo Detergent with Wally Cox

Beatles, Violent Femmes, Drifters, Police, & Creedence Clearwater Revival! Every time I noodle around on the guitar, that Violent Femmes riff seems to pop up. Guess I'm not the only one. :)

HootSuite is working on Google+ support. I submitted a feature request to HootSuite and just got the following note:

"HootSuite is pleased to be named as an official launch partner for Google+ Pages trial.

Currently, this functionality is available exclusively to HootSuite Enterprise clients. We'll work with Google+ to review the experience and hope to expand the offering in the near future."

Can't wait!
