Need to Tweet Less, Blog More

It has been more than 3 weeks since my last blog post, and I blame it sorely on Twitter and I am sure it has nothing to do with my laziness. Hmm. It wasn't the first that my blog was threatened by Twitter, and you would think that I have migrated to Jaiku already?!

Okay. I did give Jaiku a try because of their seemingly working IM interface. The working bit was emphasised because it worked, but not very well. Stuff I posted sometimes take up to 12 hours for it to appear on Jaiku, and then IM had outage after outage. At the end I figured out that it would have been easier for me to write my own XMPP bot for Twitter -- and that's exactly what I did. A 500 line XMPP bot using pyxmpp + python-twitter wrapper and it does everything the old bot did plus more. Maybe I'll share the code sometime when I clean it up... But I am back to Twitter for now (although thinking about running my own Laconi.ca server).

So I guess it would be a good idea to revise what I have tweet today.

Enough for tonight. Yes -- need to resist the urge to tweet, but blog more. Let me tweet about it :)
