Jeffrey’s Twitter Updates for 2011-08-30

  • What with this being the first time I have had Internet access since yesterday afternoon, I feel a little out of it. #
  • It took us 6 hours to get back to the city this afternoon. The NYS Thruway and old Route 17 are both still closed. #
  • @christiepooh We will hopefully be able to drive back today, depending on the decline in flooding between here and #NYC #
  • Still no Internet or cable. NYSEG and VERIZON have done a great job maintaining their services. #

  • We have not had cable nor Internet since late afternoon. Wish Time Warner were as good as NYSEG! #
  • Watching the news, and they said the NYS Thruway is closed, along with NY Rte. 17, both due to flooding. Thus, no back to #NYC for me yet. #
  • @NSRiazat Thankfully the hurricane is gone, though now the winds outside are vicious #Irene #
  • @savasavasava Yes, definately re-confirm your flight if it is scheduled into #NYC tomorrow. #
  • @NSRiazat @EmmaBurnettx Will look to see you next time #phdchat #meetup #
  • The power has been going off for 2-5 seconds and then right back on. Been happening for about 20 minutes and no idea why #NYSEG #
  • @DrGarcia Yes, I heard a good amount of CT has power loss. #
  • @NSRiazat Too bad you will not be able to join us @sarahthesheepu #phdchat #meetup #
  • @sarahthesheepu Thanks for tracking the attendees of the LONDON #phdchat #meetup for the purpose of the reservation. #
  • @MisaimedBrain Most excellent; lots of interesting people to meet F2F #phdchat #meetup #
  • For the LONDON #phdchat #meetup, so far expecting @sarahthesheepu @Eingang @OwhyOwhy @JeffreyKeefer @martin_eve @OrgMotivation @JaneDavis13 #
  • @martin_eve @OwhyOwhy Great! I believe @sarahthesheepu is tracking the reservation, as I believe there are 7 of us now #phdchat #
  • @ianrobsons Yes, I am flying in for the event (along with BERA and supervisor meetings!) #phdchat #
  • @martin_eve @OwhyOwhy Of course! The LONDON #phdchat #meetup is on Sat 3 Sept at 7.00pm at http://ow.ly/6bEbU in Bloomsbury. #
  • Wow, they just said the airports will not be up and running until tomorrow. #
  • @vigdissj December is not that far away! #
  • @vigdissj Alas, there are few times to not be able to think about research. Perhaps I have passed that researcher identity threshold? #
  • Listening to @WNYC now and they are reporting that some areas in NJ will be without power for at least 7 days. What century are we in? #
  • @damian613 Excellent weathering of #Irene hope the worst is behind us in the Western Catskills. #
  • @vigdissj Phew. Has been steady power for about 2 hours now, so about to re-engage in my research. How is yours coming along? #
  • @ModernDruidBlog Do you have a lot around the house? #
  • @ModernDruidBlog Did any come down yet? #
  • @JaneDavis13 @DebbieHolley1 Thanks for the RT for the LONDON #phdchat #meetup on 3 Sept at 7.00 pm. #
  • @betsyweber Let's hope the worst is past; thanks for the far-away check-in. #Irene #
  • @christiepooh @AndyRKett I will look into that one the next time I need to book something; thanks for the recommendations. #
  • @DrGarcia Thanks; will take about a week off from research when I return from the UK; will probably be thinking about it then anyway. #
  • @NYSEandG Let's hope it they will all be able to continue smoothly and without incident! #NYSEG #
  • @ModernDruidBlog Hopefully the storm will pass you without incident and with power. #
  • @vigdissj Thanks! The more I see about this hurricane, the more I am glad we left the city for it. Bad weather here, but not as bad #Irene #
  • @vigdissj @JaneDavis13 @kiwicito @be_b Thanks for the well wishes during the hurricane. Seems to be a bit of a pause in #Irene now #
  • With the power back on, we filled up a bunch of glass containers with water, made coffee, took showers, and the like. Hope it now remains on #
  • We had horrible rains this morning and a lot of wind over night, though seems to be a bit of a pause now. #
  • Hats off to #NYSEG our power company – they seem to be working very hard to maintain the utility. #
  • We have lost power and had it restored 4 times since 6:30 this morning, due undoubtedly to Hurricane Irene. It is on now, so a few Tweets #

  • @JaneDavis13 Be great if you can join us for the #phdchat LONDON #meetup on 3 Sept @OrgMotivation @OwhyOwhy @sarahthesheepu @Eingang #
  • Can't wait to meet @OwhyOwhy @sarahthesheepu @OrgMotivation @Eingang at the #phdchat #meetup on Sat 3 Sept at 7.00pm at http://ow.ly/6bEbU #
  • Want to join us for a LONDON #phdchat #meetup on Sat 3 Sept at 7.00pm at http://ow.ly/6bEbU in Bloomsbury? Please RT. #
  • @OwhyOwhy @7pm Excellent! #phdchat #
  • @sarahthesheepu @OwhyOwhy @OrgMotivation @Eingang Excellent! #
  • @OwhyOwhy @sarahthesheepu @OrgMotivation @Eingang Yes, that's it. Great idea about booking for 6. Mention to the group as well! #
  • @klbz All the best with it; I am in the Western Catskills now. #
  • @ai1sa @bigkebabman Wow, those must be huge image sizes then. #
  • @ai1sa @francesbell Fantastic assistance! I have never learned to navigate that. #
  • @christiepooh @AndyRKett Wonderful! Never comfortable with those sites. Don't they have limitations and you cannot see it before booking? #
  • @klbz Are you in a hurricane zone? #
  • @sarahthesheepu @OwhyOwhy @OrgMotivation @Eingang Can't find the link to the pub we talked about visiting next Sat at 7:00. Anybody have it? #
  • @AndyRKett Good to know somebody finds something useful with one of those sites; I have never had much luck with travel sites. #
  • @kiwicito @aeratcliffe Sounds good, so will come soon onto my machine, I am sure. #
  • @dbaQ8 Got it; small world. #
  • @gavatron Good for you; I wish I would have ridden my bike more this year. That will be a primary focus when I return from my trip. #
  • @AndyRKett How did you get it so cheaply? #
  • @christiepooh Yuck. #
  • @dbaQ8 Will do! Is that where you are from? #
  • @francesbell @ai1sa You mean there are other sorts of funding besides self?!?! #
  • @snurb_dot_info @jeanburgess Thank you! #
  • @dbaQ8 @aeratcliffe Goodness, that does not sound like a smooth #Lion upgrade experience. #
  • @snurb_dot_info @jeanburgess Great paper; timely for some of my work. How can I reference? #ECPR2011 #Twitter #
  • @queercrip This just may be a #postmodern re-framing! #disability #empowerment #self #unique #individual #fb #
  • @gavatron @theGObros and why not? Nobody else will have a good time for us! #
  • @francesbell @ai1sa Will be nice to see you both at #NL11 if paper accepted and credit card paid down! #
  • @gavatron Looks like fun! #
  • @aeratcliffe Congrats; great job! #phdchat #
  • @ai1sa Yes, I am planning to submit for the Networked Learning Conference in April 2012 http://t.co/oE810V8 #phdchat #
  • @AndyRKett Enjoy the time off. #
  • @danya I will use that unwavering focus as a model to try to emulate. #
  • @danya So, you researched liminality as well? #
  • @qui_oui Goodness, what a horrible story. #gender #
  • @AndyRKett Too bad for the former, but great for the latter. What are your plans there? #
  • @AndyRKett Thank you; fingers crossed. You are not near London, are you? #
  • @ai1sa Wow, what a huge file size. Do you have images and such? #phdchat #
  • @kiwicito Wow, you started the day off well; is it maintaining? #phdchat #
  • @aeratcliffe Been putting #Lion off; odd that I don't feel I really need anything different. What have you found worth the upgrade? #phdchat #
  • @danya What was your motivation to keep charging? Support or incentive? #
  • @aeratcliffe Yes, fingers crossed. I fly Thursday morning for a night in Montreal en route, so hope things back to normal by then #phdchat #
  • @aeratcliffe Yes, I received one of the publications recently, too. I did not subscribe to the journals as I get them online #BERA #phdchat #
  • Wow, I travel this week for the British Educational Research Association #BERA convention bit.ly/nbqEnk in London from 6-8 Sept #phdchat #
  • @lindathestar #BERA is the British Educational Research Association convention bit.ly/nbqEnk in London from 6-8 Sept #phdchat #
  • @OrgMotivation Odd; I thought I followed you here. Perhaps that is why I miss many Tweets! #
  • @OwhyOwhy @OrgMotivation @Eingang @sarahthesheepu Dinner sounds good; we have to eat anyway! #phdchat #meetup #
  • @OrgMotivation @sarahthesheepu @Eingang @OwhyOwhy Seems there may be the 5 of us; will mention it again along the way. Will be nice to meet #
  • @OrgMotivation @sarahthesheepu @Eingang @OwhyOwhy Great; so you will make the reservation for us at 7:00? #
  • @danya How did you re-navigate the deadline? #
  • @danya I shall keep that in mind, in case twins are reported as being on the way! #
  • @christiepooh ;-) Usually I inspire people to do things different from me, like an anti-example!! #
  • @lindathestar My UK trip next week is for #BERA though will meet with both supervisors along the way. #phdchat #
  • @lornarichardson Dinosaur top? #
  • @danya Agreed about the pressure, but without some pressure I would probably delay and justify it as having lots of time ahead! #
  • @klbz Agreed about the backup; I did a second off-site backup at your suggestion; thanks! #NYC #
  • @EmmaBurnettx @klbz @webnemesis Transcription is next, though will take a little a couple days to breathe when return from the UK #phdchat #
  • @Zimbarama Yes, it is a step to achieve indeed. I did not realize how much of a step at the time. #
  • @danya Goodness, in some ways I like the sounds of that, "serenity and solitude of analysis" #phdchat #
  • @Azuresong We stopped at a large supermarket on the way up last night, and bought enough food for days; quite un-New York of us! #
  • @Azuresong Great; be careful with the storm. At least you are a bit higher than others, it seems. #
  • @dbaQ8 So do I! As I am using #MAXQDA on two other concurrent projects, I expect some really interesting things #phdchat #
  • @lindathestar Yes, more powerful experience than I imagined. Will have a lot of processing ahead of me. #
  • @HelenHickson Absolutely! Great sense of lightness when picking up after the final interview. Sense of positive movement #phdchat #
  • @SarahStewart Thank you! Will plan to describe it a bit along the way. #
  • @christiepooh Never would have imagined I could do all that in 4 weeks. Exhausted, though inspired with so many stories of doctorateness. #
  • @christiepooh No, headed upstate to keep an eye on things there. Should hopefully not be as bad as the city. Never seen such storm warnings. #
  • @Azuresong Yes, headed upstate to weather the storm. How about you, away from the coast? #

  • Goodness, all #NYC airports are also being closed tomorrow at noon. #
  • No evidence out the window of the impending hurricane, but #NYC ordered a quarter million people to evacuate and all transit stops Sat noon. #
  • Strange how there is a horrible hurricane headed directly to #NYC though outside is a picture-perfect sunny day, even with a light breeze. #
  • @kiwicito So sorry for your data loss; how much did you lose? Do you have some sort of backup? #phdchat #NVivo #
  • @OwhyOwhy @OrgMotivation @Eingang @sarahthesheepu Drinks? Dinner? Play it by ear? #phdchat #meetup #
  • @OwhyOwhy @OrgMotivation @Eingang @sarahthesheepu Not sure if there is a "normal" time, but how about 7.00 pm? #phdchat #meetup #
  • @thesiswhisperer I know you can do it. Take 5 at a time and then do something else; keep coming back and voila! #email #urgh #
  • @TheEndeavour This makes me wonder if there are any repositories of best practices or good idea examples for using #Scrivener @ScrivenerApp #
  • @tmontgomeryrn While I do find #Scrivener a bit challenging to learn, I also find it well worth it. I even use it as a note-taking app. #
  • @sonjaviv You are a fountain of interesting links; thank you so much for sharing these! #
  • @sonjaviv Excellent post; thanks for sharing it. #
  • @macboyx and tomorrow is another day #fb #
  • @sonjaviv So true; that is what I try not to engage in aloud. Self-moderation as an element of how we present ourselves. #
  • @savasavasava You are certainly cryptic this evening. #
  • @savasavasava Why? #
  • @TheEndeavour @thesiswhisperer @ScrivenerApp @anitranot How do you use it to find these interconnected ideas? #
  • @thesiswhisperer Most excellently stated about #Scrivener #phdchat #
  • @tmontgomeryrn I found #Scrivener hard to adapt to, since I had hegemonicly learned to think as MSWord forced me. #PhDchat #
  • @thesiswhisperer What do you like most about @ScrivenerApp (in 140 characters or less, of course!)? @anitranot @TheEndeavour #
  • @sonjaviv Along these lines, I tell I client I am working with to not think of "having to" Tweet. Tweeting is processing thoughts in public #
  • @sonjaviv Most excellent; welcome to the Twitterverse. More accurately, thanks for sharing! #
