Perks of Being a Wallflower, The

I learned about the movie when I was following up to see what else the Harry Potter cast members were working on. I already am a huge fan of Emma Watson and when I read the summary of the movie and learned that it as being made from a book, I already had it on my wishlist. The book is not the best, but it did strike a chord in my curiosity to want to watch the movie. I definitely don’t want my daughters to read it – yet. Though I know that it was written for readers like her.

It was really interesting – all the different material that is mentioned in the book.

Testing a Quick Connection to Facebook, Twitter

I need to be able to test a connection to Twitter from various systems to troubleshoot an connect issue from a particular instance. A very simple CURL command would be perfect, but if I try to get anything more than just a page (of a user I already know), it seems I need to authenticate. To make things more complicated, basic authentication has been discontinued since the introduction of OAUTH.
