Twitter Weekly Updates for 2011-01-02

  • @kennethrsharp Did refer them to you, but did brief troubleshooting over phone; as expected, not our bug: network wasn't set up properly. #
  • Want the original 1984 version of "Do They Know It's Christmas?" Not Band Aid II or random person (why iTunes?!) Even BT is failing me! #

  • Why haven't they made "Spaceballs 2: The Search for More Money"? #

  • So much pain all over; can barely– arms, back, legs and thighs (quads); seems too sudden & severe to just a sign that I'm getting old. #
