Twitterlog for October 19, 2007

Since I seem to have activated my away-from-home batsignal, here are the SMS messages I’ve sent to Twitter in the past 24 hours. My tweets are normally friends-only, but when I’m away from home they’re usually more interesting than the usual ‘OMG where’s my tea?’ claptrap, so I’ve written a script to post them publicly in batches once daily while I’m gone.
