First - thanks again for a nice service, themes are really cool and I'm really going to do some heavy-weight customisation over the weekend! Now, two questions:
1. Is there any way to hide past of the post behind the "read more" link? Like in LiveJournal or '' in WordPress? That may definitely help to make Posterous more solid and professional blogging tool.
2. Is there any way to convert tags into twitter hashtags? So, if I tag this post (you see - I'm CCing firstname.lastname@example.org!) with "posterous" tag, can it be converted into #posterous on Twitter?
3. (oi! there're three questions actually!) – can we have an option of sending content which will be processed by Markdown OR at least sending HTML source? Say, I want to include snippets of code into my post, so I'd prefer to have `int a = 128` or at least
int a = 128; feature.

Well, it can be annoying - it can be awfully annoying, in fact, to debug Hadoop applications. But sometimes you need it, because logging doesn't show anything, and you've tried anything but still cannot get under the Hadoop's cover. In this case, do few simple steps.

So, you would really like to now, how much longer can you use your inclusive minutes and text, or want to see, when your next bill is due or how much did you pay the last time? There's an app for that! Recently released My O2 app is a tiny brilliant - does what it says, easily and simply – no more, and no less.
Main screen simply shows you the most important information – well, for me it's not that bad, as the last bill was just yesterday and I am unlikely to put the needle to the left-most position. But, I can easily see what I want to, and that's pretty much enough. You can also view your last bill summary, your recent charges (I found out how much one minute costs me when I'm in Spain!) – and even view your tariff details, which is something totally amazing if you need just a quick reference, on what you're paying. Honestly, O2 - you did a great job and my congratulations are well-deserved!
Grab it while it's hot! (via O2 Blog)
I bet you're surprised I do not look as smart as the rest of the guests (and not even nearly as smart as my beautiful wife). Well, that's because I've been the most miserable person there – namely photographer, and spend the whole day jumping around with the camera (with two cameras, in fact), so at 12AM when guests were enjoying the Spanish wine and truly delicious food from the hotel's restaurant, I fought myself to not fall asleep right where I was sitting.

Yes, it's all for real. Look at the video.

In my Twitter (http://twitter.com/sigizmund/status/3840531748) I've added a link to video-manual, how to produce this breathtaking, but utterly useless effect.
P.S. And yes - QuickTime X's screen recoding feature just rocks - now I hardly need any screen-recording apps, as long as I have QuickTime and iMovie.

Today I've created and published a PhotoMaker – mash-up, which geoparses articles, using Yahoo! Placemaker and finds photographs on Flickr which are relevant to found places. It uses YQL to glue them together - and initially was created as a demo of these three brilliant pieces of technology. Please take a look yourself at sigizmund.info/PhotoMaker.
Seriously, it's not funny anymore. These G3 Worldwide Netherlands guys - how are they handling their deliveries? Yes I know bikes are quite popular for commuting in Netherlands, but I don't think using bike to deliver my Snow Leopard was a good idea at all; otherwise – I honestly can't understand why the hell it takes so long.
