Website News And Geekiness

Comments 5 by Rebecca Bollwitt

I was reading Airdrie’s blog post about not joining Twitter [wiki], where she links to a Rocketboom video about how annoyingly addictive the service can be.


I decided to start Googling around found a couple funny Twitter spoofs. Now I’ve never been a huge Star Wars [wiki] fan, and I have been blogging all night doing a live blog my other site, but I found this pretty freakin funny.

Recent updates from Darth Vader’s Twitter.

* Just used the Force to scratch that itch that’s been bothering me inside my helmet. Its good to be a Sith Lord.
* Met some new people today. My kind of scum for the most part. Except for one… IG-88. Call me old fashion, but I just don’t trust robots.
* Finding that dust and fingerprints show up too easily on gloss black. I should have opted for the Solar Yellow or Sedona Mist helmet color.
* Memo to self: Sell my shares in the Tibanna Gas Mine on Bespin. I have a feeling prices are about to plunge. [Chatterwocky]

Once you recover from that (and the realization about how dorky I am), a few website notes for

I just upgraded to WordPress 2.1.2, and it’s pretty neat. There are still a couple things to get used to e.g. there is no longer a preview button that will jump you down the page to view your post before publishing, but the auto-save makes up for it. We’re still working out some kinks – like getting my blogroll to display by rating and not alphabetically, and sorting my categories in that drop down menu on the sidebar. If you notice anything isn’t working normally, please contact me.

    Crap. I’m guilty as well, but also a Star Wars geek in hardcore fashion. Too funny.

    I have a question I’m hoping someone can answer. Because of problems with a certain program at work they gave me a new userID and now when I’m online I cannot see any videos or anything, it says I need to ‘enable java’. How do I do this? I cannot make it through another 8 hours without youtube!

    Oh my goodness! I laugh really really hard. Yes, I am geeky to the max, I’m the first one to admit it…but that’s just plain funny.
