Removed Automatic Twitter Updates

1 Comment | This entry was posted on May 31 2009

I just wanted to let everyone know that I just removed the automatic Twitter updates from my site. While I like the idea of having content automatically updated from other things I am doing, I just felt like I was almost spamming my own site. I will still be using Twitter/Identi.ca and I like the idea of their service but having it post stuff on my site isn’t really what I intended for this site in the first place. I am sure most of you won’t be sad about this and if you really want to see these updates go ahead and follow me on Twitter.
I am still going to try and update my site with a article/how-to once per week but I won’t have the weekly Twitter posts anymore. I just thought I would let any of my readers out there know about the change.
If you have any other things you would like to see updated often on the site let me know in the comments.

*update* OK I thought I disabled them. I disabled the “feature” in the plugin again. I will have to check it later in the week to make sure it is still disabled.

  • Yay! My Logitech PS3 adapter is all set up and running. Now I truly have a universal remote. #
  • tip of the day: if you are taking apart a mac mini for the first time, let it run for 30 min to warm up. It makes the plastic easier to pry. #
  • tip of the day 2: don’t forget to plug in the front cable next to the speaker on the mac mini or your fan will stick at full speed. ;) #
  • @erinlynneh I will be down by you on saturday. I am going to bring you guys a new computer so I hope you are around. in reply to erinlynneh #
  • @erinlynneh I am getting down there early to fix my car. Hopefully I will be done in the afternoon. in reply to erinlynneh #

  • @erinlynneh dad knows a guy that is going to help me out. So I will be at his place most of the day. in reply to erinlynneh #
