Tweetdeck’s Chrome notifications stopped working

With the last few weeks, I noticed that Tweetdeck’s notifications weren’t showing up in Chrome any longer. I double-checked all of the Tweetdeck settings and notifications were indeed enabled. However, I found that Tweetdeck wasn’t allowed to send notifications when I checked in my Chrome settings. Check your settings To check these for yourself, hop into Chrome’s content settings. Scroll down to Notifications and click Manage Exceptions. In my case, https://tweetdeck.

Lenovo ThinkPad T430s review

This post covers the second half of my experience moving back to a Linux desktop but I figured it was a good opportunity to focus on the ThinkPad T430s itself as well as the Lenovo ordering experience. If you follow me on Twitter, you know about my service experience. I’ll save that for the end of this post. This post is a little on the long side, so here’s a TL;DR for you if you’re in a big hurry:

See you at LinuxCon North America 2012!

I was sitting at my desk yesterday when I saw a tweet from @LinuxFoundation: The tweet that got the ball rolling. I’ve always wanted to attend LinuxCon, so I fired back with a reply: “@linuxfoundation Fedora! #linuxcon #cloudopen”. This popped into my Twitter timeline yesterday evening: Woot! Wow! This sure was a surprise since I rarely ever win a contest of any sort. I’d like to give a big thanks to the Linux Foundation for making this possible and to Rackspace for letting me travel on such short notice.

Off to the 2012 Red Hat Summit

I’m on my way to my first Red Hat Summit and I’m really eager to learn some new things, meet new people, and share my experiences with others. This is my first time attending the summit and my first time in Boston. If you’re not attending, but you’d like to follow along with some of the keynotes, you can register online to live stream those events to your desktop. I’ll try to share some of the best parts of the keynotes and the sessions here on the blog if TL;DR is a little more your style.

Keep tabs on OpenStack development with OpenStack Watch on Twitter

It’s no secret that I’m a fan of Twitter and OpenStack. I found myself needing a better way to follow the rapid pace of OpenStack development and I figured that a Twitter bot would be a pretty good method for staying up to date. I’d like to invite you to check out @openstackwatch. First things first, it’s a completely unofficial project that I worked on during my spare time and it’s not affiliated with OpenStack in any way.
