STL Twitter for Newbies Suggestions

May 15, 2009 at 6:14 pm (St. Louis Twitter Ning) (, , )

Hey St. Louis, I need your help. I want to put together a bit of a “who’s who” and new users guide to St. Louis for new twitter users. I’ve got some ideas to ease the pain for new users who are probably overwhelemed with everything. This will be hosted on the STLTwitter page, but other STL sites are welcome to use it as well.

Here’s what I’m looking for:

  • People who have a lot of tweets geared for new users. @tojosan is probably the best example of this, but I’m looking for others.
  • Local “Celebrities” i.e. Radio DJ’s and Talk show hosts. I’m ashamed to say, I can probably only think of 1 that I follow.
  • Local places and their tweet streams. i.e. @themuny
  • Major STL sites like @SceneSTL and major news outlets like @weatherbird
  • Any STL bots like @stlbot
  • And a list of any other STL sites of intrest (I should have most on the right of the STL page) Please let me know if I’m missing any.
  • And anything else you find helpful to stay connected in St. Louis!
  • Maybe 1 or 2 generic “New Twitter Users” guides. I’ll for sure link to @tojosan’s, which was a big help for me!

I want to keep it as simple as possible, so I don’t want to create a White Pages of STL, I’d like to keep it strictly as a guide for new users to be able to find value. I appreciate any help, please leave a comment below or contact me. If I can keep track of who helped I’ll give a shout out on the page. Thanks for your help!

My Bicycle Project

April 23, 2009 at 9:41 pm (DIY) (, )

It’s finally nice enough out to start working on my bike. I was going back an forth between subaru blue with gold wheels or olive drab green army style, but then I found a brown leather seat and whitewall tires at walmart and then I was sold on the military look.

I never realized how complicated this bike was untill I took it apart. Hopefully I can put it back together. I’m going to convert it to a one speed and get some street tires. I had to pull all the stupid stickers off and sand everything down (the hard part). Still busy sanding, although I did get to primer the main frame which was good motivation. Here’s the progress so far…

What I’m playing on my iPhone

April 14, 2009 at 11:03 pm (Technology) ()

I’ve been pretty addicted to a couple of multiplayer iPhone games recently, mainly Mafia Wars, which in part revolves around adding members to your gang. It’s a great passive game, so check it out, and add me, my ID is 8304192006. For the record, I also love Race Wars, iMafia and Ninjas, but I don’t need to whore myself out online to get “crew”. If you play, add me and add your ID below and I’ll add it too, but note, I don’t play any of the facebook ones.

So I finally went out and bought some bacon (Save a lot FTW) and decided to make something for dinner. Started cooking the bacon, then I decided I wanted a bacon burger, that’s right, Bacon first, then I figure out what I’m cooking… Anyway, Just wanted to brag… Bacon Cooking

I think I'll have to use this as my new twitter av

Ugh, Spam!

March 21, 2009 at 8:07 pm (St. Louis Twitter Ning) (, , , )

So I got my first taste of the “best” part of running the ning site. Unintended promotion via a spam bot! They joined about a week ago, and I thought  there was something weird about it. I noticed like 5 other people join afterwards that didn’t belong. I was looking at the members and noticed that the original “person” had proceeded to invite over 1000 people to our site! They didn’t even have a website, what were they planing on doing? So the people that joined afterward were randomly invited, AND JOINED! Well, hopefully that’s over for now…

Oh so busy!

March 21, 2009 at 7:53 pm (Status Update) ()

So, I try to stay away from the personal stuff on my blog, that’s what my twitter and facebook is for. I did want to say for the record that I have been so busy these past couple weeks! Work decided to cut 1 person too many, and when you leave only 4 full time and 2 part time employees to run the store, and then approve vacations this month. This leaves us to work our butts off! I clocked 101 hours in the last 2 weeks! I am an hourly employee, so I’ll take the extra hours and overtime. Anyway, that’s my excuse, and hence the lack of blog posts, quality tweets, appearances at tweetups and the sorrying state of the stl twitter ning site. Anyway, Don’t expect a ton out of me for a little bit longer, not that I really have any regular readers anyway…

NoSleepHD protects my sanity

March 9, 2009 at 7:54 pm (Technology) (, , , )

NoSleepHD is an windows utility that stops your external hard drive from going to sleep. Windows by default will put to sleep external devices to save energy and such. The problem I have is when my external decides to wind up, which can be at any given time, gives me some terrible audio feedback on my speakers. So, until I get that problem fixed (Most likely convert to all digital audio) this will do. Also people who need the performance perks of having a external that is ready to go will also find use in this program. It’s pretty straightforward, free and you can download it here.

Cardinal!

We were visited by a cardinal last night. Don’t know why he’d pick such a shitty apartment to crash at… I took a video, but it came out much too dark.
