Great save, what's up with the twitter?

Ms. Conduct said...

Noticed that we weren't getting as many votes on the weekends, so I figured I'd tweet both yesterday's and today's this morning.

I have never registered/nor use twitter. Still the "twits" I see on this page are very strange today, nothing to do with hockey like usual. Loads of cursing, I guess it could be just my machine then? Or have you started to use the word "c@#t" a lot recently?

Ms. Conduct said...

I'm not seeing it, unless we got hacked one of the guys deleted them before I saw them, but I would have expected a flurry of emails between us if that'd been the case.

Ms. Conduct said...

Thanks Finn... I pulled the feature. Can't have that, though it's weird that you're seeing it and I'm only seeing what we've posted.

I'll add it back at a later date. Wonder if it's doing it on my blog, too. Do you mind looking?

Twits and Tweets seem interchangeable ;-)..
No, I guess one has to be on the 'texting' phone/computer 24h/7 to make any sense out of twitter. I tried it, but.... it IS amusing though to see what little one CAN say in 140 characters. Especially using gazillion abbreviations or **etc.
No, did not see anything on Ms. C. sites.
Maybe the lack of votes is attributable to 'TEXAN plus college football fever' LOL.

Seems ok now, also on yours, only hockey stuff on both.

I really don't know why I saw all those things, could be my computer or I simply just need more coffee in my engine...

One more body for Wild, that way one more for Aeros...?
Petr Sykora has signed a one year deal with the Wild according to one of the leading Czech newspapers:

Russo say's that's incorrect, it's a TRYOUT.

Ok well in the original article Sykora's agent did not sound very happy about him refusing a contract from Russia with considerably more money "at his age he has to make money", so I'm not surprised if the same agent was too "embarrassed" to admit that it is only a try-out. The agent talks about a one-year contract in that article... Which I believe he will get, so no need to tell the Czech people about the initial try-out :-)
