twitter and treo tribulations

I thought twitter was semi sort of neat for a bit, until it exploded during a SXSW marketing blitz and I started getting overwhelmed by twaffic. Even before the deluge, the non sequitur nature of the twaffic was often puzzling. The last straw was when I mentioned to Mie that I don't even bother checking my phone when I get SMS messages anymore, so she told me in no uncertain terms to turn twitter off.

My other phone complaint is regarding my Treo 700p and my 4G SD card. Or perhaps I should say my erstwhile SD card, since the thing has a habit of falling out of the phone and I haven't been able to locate it since it's last escape. I hope Tesla didn't swallow it. It had photos and videos of her I'd like to keep. If I ever find it or get a replacement I think I'm going cover the slot with duct tape.
