Nearly a year using Twitter – this was 2008

So I found out that Twitter will not keep all my posts forever so I activated the weekly recapture feature on our new wordpress site that will produce a blogpost here each week allowing me to look back later and giving me at least some control over my posts in terms of backing up and stuff. With regards to the old posts I just went and grabbed everything there is with the earliest post from the 7th of August 2008. Not sure if I did any tweeting before that.. so without any more rambling..
