I wish I could change which circles a post is shared with. I just posted an article to my "developer" circle that I would have preferred to share publicly.

You can reshare it publicly, though you'll lose any comments that were already made. And you'll look kinda crazy resharing your own posts. ;)

Folks using twitter: have you come up with any method to the madness of posting status updates to twitter as well as google+? I don't necessarily mean automation; do you simply duplicate your status updates, do you post certain types of status updates here and other types to twitter, or are you finding yourself using one of the services more at the expense of the other?

I believe I am abnormally kind to recruiters: I respond to most of their emails even to simply say that I am not interested, and if any of the positions do sound decent enough, I happily pass their contact information off to other developers that are job seeking.

However, if you are a recruiter and you contact me with one or two sentences that do not describe the position nor the company in the slightest bit, I will ignore you. If you contact to me in this manner more than once, I will report you as spam.

How do recruiters that do this even stay in business? Surely they can't be pulling in good talent with practices like that.

I understand that they have to retain some of the information in order to preserve the business, but that doesn't mean they need to leave out important details such was what the job would require, what the company could offer me, and what the company does.

Holy crap. Spotify is amazing.
Spotify is a digital music service that gives you access to millions of songs.

I really wish the "Suggestions" section in the right column would rotate. I get the same two people every time.

I have finally gotten around to finishing the followup to my previous blog article entitled "How PHP is Broken and How it Can Be Fixed". As I mentioned in the comments and in a subsequent update to the original article, I took the post in an entirely different direction than I originally intended, and I ended up getting across a message that seemed far more about criticizing the core developers rather than exploring practical solutions to real problems. This new article aims to correct that mistake.
It is no secret that the PHP development process has never been a shining example of project organization or quality assurance. Until recently, some of the most important aspects of any project’s dev...

I am in need of some images that are around 5mb in size. I'd preferably like to find one that is a little smaller than 5mb and one that is a little larger than 5mb. Can anyone help me out?

Cat logic is infallible: "I know I'm not allowed to play on your desk, so I am going to just knock everything off your desk, so I can play with it on the floor! I'll take your stern no and finger-wag as approval."

Hmm. All of my starred music from yesterday on Spotify are gone (about 2000 tracks). Are "starred" tracks only suppose to remain starred for a single session?

Sounds about right... Rdio for me, though.

Why am I being prompted to enable chat for my circles every time I open Google+? I already enabled it the first time! The circles I chose are even being pre-populated.

I do like it though. It basically means that any mutual contacts (in the appropriate circles) that enable chat are available to me in my google chat. I have chat disabled in gmail, and they still show up in my adium list.

I carry a flip-up winchester hunting blade in my backpack at all times. I just realize that I use it pretty much exclusively for cutting security tape on my electronics purchases. I guess I should consider that a good thing.
