This is the small cafeteria section of Old Port Royale, the shining hallmark of Disney’s resort food joints. It’s got bagels, beer, fruit cups, but only one cash register. What the yay, yo? The line is near bursting when I get in the morning.
But I have a hack for this. See, there are other cash registers at OPR. There are many other cash registers at OPR. Here they are:
Nefariously or not, I abandon the line attached to the former small bodega and join this checkout line corral for the other small quick-service counters. There is always a CM named Jane, Jorge, or Jess that’s happy to charge you $14 for a bagel and OJ. This honestly saved me more than 10 minutes each morning.
Howcast is a web service TechCrunch covered recently. It’s got some pretty cool tech, with a lot of structure built around professionally-made instructional videos. Sadly, I stumbled upon its ‘How to throw a frisbee’ entry, and I dispute its merit. No self-respecting frisbee player uses sub-Whammo sized disc straight out of a Honey Nut Cheerios box.
Via @nickgonzalez, I stumbled upon Google Maps‘Terrain’ feature and it is pretty sweet. The new view is more like a traditional paper map, highlighting elevation, vegetation, and highways routes. It looks fantastic. Look for it be the norm, soon.
Gone is the ‘Hybrid’ view — it’s now implicit with the ‘Satellite’ view (though you can toggle the streets names out).
Great post by Coda Hale on simplifying posts to Twitter: doing it via Quicksilver.
Had to follow a comment from Michael Janssen: I had to change: set twitter_key to first Internet key of current keychain whose server is "twitter.com" to set twitter_key to first generic key of current keychain whose name is "Twitterrific" in order to get it to work, because my twitter key is just a regular aplication password.
UPDATE:: Thanks to Ted Leung, now working with Growl. Make sure to apply the code above again if you have the same issues as me.
