8/21/12 marked the debut of #reminderbeetle!


#reminderbeetle helps remind everyone to set their alarms on Tuesday night!

@MelsieBurger chains her bike outside BkfstClub

@melsieburger bikes to #PortsBkfstClub – Go Melsie!

Some things discussed this week:

Geek Cred podcast
OS X Mountain Lion– just how nerdy do you have to be to install it yourself? Turns out, anyone can do it!
WFNX might not be around on the radio anymore, but you can tune into RadioBDC online! Why is it called BDC?:

This cutie pie caused quite the stir- @melsieburger grabbed this shot of him while he was tied to the same signpole as her bike- isn’t he adorable?!

@MyFriendDan captured this great shot on his way in to #PortsBkfstClub!

The #BkfstClub idea has sparked another gathering (this one on Mondays) in Dover! (see previous post for the full story!)

Here in the heart of where the whole thing started, at #PORTSBkfstClub, this is what we chatted about today:

Rocky Horror Picture show (from all those tweets)

More #03801Moz talk… and how we wish they could see Portsmouth in the summer!

Foursquare- Y U NO pop up with YAY YOU’RE THE MAYOR NOW! screens? (@walterelly was able to later confirm that it’s a known bug, and they’re totally on it! W00t!)

Doug finds another Call Me Maybe video… this one, no really, THIS one is totally going to change your life in amazing ways! #Chatroulettestyle

@dougridley shares his terrifying dream of being halfway back to Dover on the Spaulding before realizing he’s missing #DigitalPorts and is stuck in traffic for the rest of the dream, unable to return to Portsmouth! (@laughtercrystal has this as a recurring dream, which is why she suffers from a sever phobia of leaving the Portsmouth city limits)

postpost.com!!! You’re welcome.

Indie Game recap for those of us who sadly missed it- @monte_bohanan shows us this cool video, and @myfrienddan tells us he’s got one coming soon!

SHARK WEEK! We discuss various shark-related things, such as how Richard Dreyfuss really got in a cage and they had to change the ending because SPOILER ALERT his character was supposed to die, but he escaped from the cage in the footage, so in the movie he survives.

@decoupages also stopped in to tell us about her upcoming show, playing this weekend and next weekend at the Players Ring!

@laughtercrystal tells @melsieburger that she HAS to watch this video (go ahead, you too!):

Until next week…

Some stuff we talked about THIS week:

Do you remember your first cell phone? Did you have that Sprint silver flip phone everyone had in 2000? How about the Razr?

Cell phone insurance: it’s there for a reason. (Usually, for @buzzonabudget and @melsieburger)

#MozCation shenanigans and celebratory squeeeee-ing!

@laughtercrystal makes #PortsBkfstClub tagline “Everybody Likes Muffins” come alive by consuming the very first muffin in #PortsBkfstClub history! (Pic below)

New MacBookPros can’t be taken apart/upgraded because they’re soldered together! @nineballrider tells us this, and a convo about Apple’s recyclability ensues, sparking:

Monte Python meets mercury! (Meme below)

LOTS of talk of parking in Portsmouth (free first hour in garage? higher rates? new garage?)… and the Brewster Street craziness of the past week.

@laughtercrystal eats a muffin!

#4sqFriday hiatus! Is it just a shoulder season activity? And: “shoulder season” – where did that term come from?

What with Twitpic shrinking your images, Lockerz making you go to their site to see pic… is Twitter’s native photo upload the best?

Tweet up on Friday- who’s going? We’re meeting @SarahLWLee from #4sqKzoo

Mountain lion arrives! @starshaped has installed it but hasn’t played with it yet…

August 10th- Kilwin’s opens! @nineballrider ‘s parents run the joint, and he’ll be slingin’ ice cream, so come on down!

Ten Thousand Villages open at former Black Kitty Heart site (I find her lingerie quite comfortable –@dougridley)

“We do not have moustache confirmation.”

Video by @myfrienddan of bzzy app (below)

#DigitalPorts : Karen Marzloff, Chris Dalen, Michelle Moon!

We broke the news officially first, folks, Rufus Wainwright coming to the Music Hall!

Badminton players international scandal!

Also in Olympic news, Siri can translate KG into LB for you!

Comic sans defends itself

@dougridley was the first one to #proclub!

It was a dedicated crew that showed up this week, coming off a late night the night before at HOOPLA party! We all agreed it was a smashing success, over coffee that a bit more than necessary that early morning for breakfast club…

Great also to have a surprise drop-in by Grace Peirce of Great Life Press, who ran into My Friend Dan on his way into #PortsBkfstClub.

Some things we discussed, in no particular order:

RPM Challenge and Army of Toys
SEOmoz, Mozcation and bringing it to Portsmouth! #03801moz
HOOPLA recap (when is the next one? stay tuned!)
Gold Shoe Productions, a dedicated group of student filmmakers in Maine
Ports history: tiki bar, eagle photo
Kilwin’s, how it already has a Foursquare mayor, and how visitors from Florida are already excited about it!
Effective QR codes (is there such a thing?)
Indie Games documentary coming to Music Hall 8/9, and how cool it will be to play video games ON THE BIG SCREEN from the FRONT ROW!
Thirsty Moose one week later- did it live up to the hype?

This week in Portsmouth history:

Tiki Bar and Eagle Photo

Ahhh, another #PortsBkfstClub Wednesday!

behind camera: @walterelly

Some topics discussed this morning:

Tumblr as a blog platform & pushing to it using other sources (look for #4sqDoneFail Tumblr from @walterelly coming soon!)
Can you color your at work? (Pink highlights?)
Lady Gaga’s Little Monsters social network launches!
Video as content: social setting interviews (like @MyFriendDan’s videos) less pressure than traditional staged settings
Techsoup.org for nonprofits
Grand Guignol & @johnherman ‘s show at the Player’s Ring (running through this weekend!)

And of course, like any other rational Portsmouth crew, we waited outside the Thirsty Moose, vowing to NEVER LEAVE until it opened it’s doors! (or until a very nice man who worked there came out and talked to us for a bit. Hi, Brendan!!)

Thirsty Moose Campout

@derbsworld @walterelly @dougridley @MyFriendDan @LainieH33 camp out in front of @ThirstyMooseTap!

Oh. And THIS (you’re welcome, @dougridley):

Some of this week’s topics:

– Trello and other project management software (BaseCamp, FileMakerPro)

– Snapcal integrating to Evernote (and how if you install things under the influence of Old Fashioneds and don’t remember to ever set them up, they can’t help you!)

– 360 Pano (and how it turns people into alien/holograms if they’re on the border of one of the collage shots, case in point: http://360.io/DkMhVp)

– Facebook and Edge Rank for annual events like Portsmouth Halloween Parade

– Careless Whisper Sexy Sax man (and how @jcyr was him for Halloween once)

– Google+ and how we wish more people were on it (and how happy they must have been about Twitter/FourSquare being down at times this week)

– GoogleApps for biz email (and how long it takes to transition after many years in Outlook)

This week in ports history:
The old police station, The Press Room (where @laughtercrystal was NOT conceived!!!)
