Celebrating Ada Lovelace Day and my favorite woman in technology

As today is "Ada Lovelace Day" I'll be taking my favorite women in technology and wife out for pizza, a burger a latte or whatever she feels like having for dinner.

Thanks on being supportive and helpful on all my "techie" endeavors, from doing "FLISoLes" to cooking your delicious burgers and pancakes to help get computers for disadvantaged kids and specially for being patient when I just have another bug to report or "great idea" to share on IRC or twitter.

I love you! Even if you still insist on using XP =P

Want to check out what's the buzz is all about?

This one is to appease the twitter following that's going all going crazy begging for a Google's Buzz account.

I got to check it out almost the moment it was announced using these 5 easy steps:
  1. Get Spread Firefox Affiliate Button
  2. Install this add-on User Agent Switcher
  3. Click "Tools" > "Default User Agent" > "iPhone 3.0"
  4. Go to
  5. There's no step five =D
My verdict: I freaked out to give away my location at all times to our Google overlords and was baffled there doesn't seem to be a way to "tweet" your "buzzes", is that the right word?

Please try it out and let me know what you think of this new Google's "killer app".

Ps. As Yahoo! tweeted they released their own Buzz a couple years ago.
